Why not have a section where bugs in Perl are submitted/catalogged/demonstrated?

    It doesn't come up that much. New sections are hard to implement. Perhaps that shouldn't be so, but that's quite another matter.

    This isn't the right forum. Bugs in perl belong on the BTS, and discussion on them belongs on perl5-porters.

    You don't normaly know you've got a perl bug until you've discussed it for a while. Most perl bugs (I suspect, anyway), come from people saying "I've done everything I can think of and it still dosen't work. It must be a bug in perl". Unfornatly, many people say that, and it isn't a bug in perl.

    We are using here a powerful strategy of synthesis: wishful thinking. -- The Wizard Book
