The dual-life dists affected use Devel::PPPort, so can safely use newSVpvs() even though it wasn't added until Perl v5.8.9. The newSVpvn("\\", 2) in Dumper.xs looks like a bug, since that would create '\&*foo', which is not valid syntax. However, I could not find a way to trigger that code path. -- - Twitter seems more influential [than blogs] in the 'gets reported in the mainstream press' sense at least. - Matt McLeod - That'd be because the content of a tweet is easier to condense down to a mainstream media article. - Calle Dybedahl
