- Want - A generalisation of wantarray
Changes for version 0.26
- There is a new experimental option in bleadperl under which one ought not to use the op_sibling field directly. Quoting from perlguts.pod:
- “ Starting in version 5.21.2, perls built with the experimental define C<-DPERL_OP_PARENT> add an extra boolean flag for each op, C<op_moresib>. When not set, this indicates that this is the last op in an C<OpSIBLING> chain. This frees up the C<op_sibling> field on the last sibling to point back to the parent op. Under this build, that field is also renamed C<op_sibparent> to reflect its joint role. The macro C<OpSIBLING(o)> wraps this special behaviour, and always returns NULL on the last sibling. With this build the C<op_parent(o)> function can be used to find the parent of any op. Thus for forward compatibility, you should always use the C<OpSIBLING(o)> macro rather than accessing C<op_sibling> directly. ”
- Thanks to Reini Urban for the patch.
