I think that at the heart here we have a core vs non-core issue.

Core modules should be upto date with the latest things that have happened

Core modules that cause seg faults tend to get fixed fast where as when a module such as Clone causes one it is not considered such an issue.

perl -e 'use Clone qw(clone); $a = \$b; undef $a; $c = clone $a;'
perl -e 'use Clone qw(clone); $a ={}; undef $a; $c = clone $a;'
Cause Seg faults


perl -e 'use Clone qw(clone); undef $a; $c = clone $a;'
perl -e 'use Clone qw(clone); $a =""; undef $a; $c = clone $a;'
does not cause this issue.

Core supports Uni-code but it takes time for modules to catch up. It appears that Clone does not support Unicode structures correctly :-

perl -MClone=clone -le '%a=(chr 256 =>1);$c=clone \%a; print ord fore +ach keys %$c' 196
as oposed to
perl -MStorable=dclone -le '%a=(chr 256 =>1);$c=dclone \%a; print ord + foreach keys %$c' 256
Hope this clears up a few things

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
