Changes for version 5.65_01

  • Updaate Exporter from blead. Bump to dev version for release testing.
  • Remove local $_ from Exporter - The changes in that commit did not necessitate the addition of local $_. So the localisation is wasting CPU cycles. Worse, it causes bugs in 5.12 and earlier. (local $_ is always wrong if you don’t control what is in $_ already, because it could be a read-only tied variable.) Actually, it causes bugs in 5.14-15 still, because it seems that the changes to ‘local $_’ still weren’t sufficient (it still calls FETCH, but not STORE). That itself needs fixing, but that should not obviate the need for this change, as Exporter has been liv- ing a double life.
