  Rejected issue

  Suggested patches

   Dave Mitchell [18]provided a fix for [19]Perl #78288 to make ref in
   boolean context faster, but suggests only merging this in 5.26.0 due to
   possible changes in other B modules to accommodate this change.

   Aaron Crane [20]provided (Re: Does the range operator still have the
   Unicode Bug?) a patch to update the documentation for the range operator
   Unicode bug fix.

   Sergey Aleynikov provided a patch in [21]Perl #130504 to fix a memory
leak
   in [22]B.

   Colin Newell [23]provided a patch to improve the documentation of newSVpv
   to recommend using newSVpvn.

Discussion

   Karl Williamson [24]asks whether qr//xx could already be re-purposed in
   5.26, since it has been deprecated for two versions, starting in 5.22.

   Andy Lester's [25]question about booleans in the core resulted in a
merged
   [26]patch by Aaron Crane.

   In [27]Perl #130523 Ed Avid suggests checking whether $a or $b are
used in
   their global role after being defined as lexical variables.
