In this commit we implemented a warning, present in perl-5.28, that the use of $* and $# -- both long deprecated -- was no longer supported. ##### commit a678626e6d2dd11740073117f5269f7efee639de Author: Abigail <firstname.lastname@example.org> AuthorDate: Sun Jan 15 13:23:34 2017 +0100 Revert "Remove deprecation warnings related to $* and $#." This reverts commit e9b5346b919b4f4cc0096af4644cb0d48d64e14c. We've decided that instead of leaving $* and $# as usuable, magic-free variables, we instead make it fatal to use them. Therefore, we restore the warnings their use gives, and in a subsequent commit, we fix the warning to indicate the version where their use becomes fatal. ##### In preparation for perl-5.30, we need to fatalize their use and adjusts tests and documentation accordingly. Thank you very much.
