Changes for version 0.21 - 2005-12-03

  • Switched from FILTER_ONLY to FILTER due to issues with Text:::Balanced. Ultimately, this leads to more robust code (and slightly faster, too).
  • Allow private subs and methods to be "signified"
  • Fixed odd corner case where "substr" could confused filter if used with parens and embedded in an "if" statement. Thanks to Jerry Sievert for the report.
  • Eliminated useless INIT block.


Use proper signatures for subroutines, including dispatching.
