Changes for version 1.27

  • Remove the line which reads 'use open qw(:std :utf8);'. As Tom Molesworth says: "Specifically, it turns on the UTF-8 encoding layer on STDIO when any code does 'use Tree::DAG_Node'. That's no good when code is expecting a different encoding (raw, etc.)". See RT#105798. Karen Etheridge followed up with a comment about it appearing in another module of mine. Then I checked all my modules (including some not intended for publication - Local::*) and found about 28 offenders, with some using it inn multiple files. The original idea came from adopting what Tom Christiansen calls his 'Standard Preamble': http://www.perl.com/pub/2012/04/perlunicook-standard-preamble.html All tests still work after removing that line.
  • Remove Build.PL. Ship only Makefile.PL.
  • Remove .gitignore from MANIFEST.
