Patches, patches, patches... #2

 OK, this is advance warning that I'm about to be reposting a bunch
 of patches of mine which appear to have succumbed to Warnock's Dilemma.

 The first three should be uncontroversial: there's a documentation fix-up
 for core.ops, and new tests for strings and stacks. The last one is
 rather larger, and consists of a greatly expanded set of tests for
 PerlString's, plus a bunch of bug-fixes. I'd be grateful if Jeff or Dan
 could take a look at this, as I have the feeling that a lot of the
 scalar PMCs are going to need similar fixes.

 Simon

Patches, patches, patches...
To forestall potential incidents of Warnock's Dillemma... I'm about to apply a whole heap 'o patches to Parrot. (With appropriate [APPLIED] responses, I hope) If, at the end of the day, I have *not* applied or commented on a patch you've sent, it means I've Officially Missed It, so give another try. Sorry 'bout this. Too much mail in the mailbox, and going back in time is tricky, as it can miss subsequent discussions on patches 'n stuff. -- Dan --------------------------------------"it's like th...

Patches: difference between 2 patches
I'm trying to get the Difference between 2 patches functionality, but after checking the docs, it's not clear to me what I need to install to make this work. Any hints?

[PATCH] SvPVX_const
--OXfL5xGRrasGEqWY Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Content-Disposition: inline Attached is the second in a series of patches to convert read-only usage of SvPVX() to using SvPVX_const() instead. This patch includes changes to: dump.c gv.c op.c pad.c perlio.c perly.c pp.c pp_ctl.c The next patch should take care of the remaining core C code. sv.c is easily the most affected by these changes, and will be in the next patch.

BlackIce Patched or Not Patched?
ISS recently released a patch for the much published denial of server venerability in BlackIce Defender. Yet, eEye referred to the venerability as a buffer overflow. My question is ... does the newly released patch cover both? The ISS site does not refer to a buffer overflow. Does that mean that even after installing the patch BlackIce Defender is open to a buffer overflow? (not good if so) I've taken BlackIce offline until I am certain that it is fully patched. Thanks in advance. Tom Correction: Denial of service venerability as opposed to denial of server. (grin) ...

Some are harmless, some may not be optimal. Help/hints/tips are always nice and appreciated. 1. SunOS realloc() does not like NULL pointers as parameters. (buf?realloc((buf), (size)):malloc((size))) 2. There is no strtoul(), alas. Some older code correctly uses the Strtoul() macro (capital S). Newer additions don't...
