+Perl no longer treats strings starting with "0x" or "0b" as hex or
+binary numbers respectively when converting a string to a number.
+This reverts a change in behaviour inadvertently introduced in perl
+5.30.0 intended to improve precision when converting a string to a
+floating point number. [perl #134230]
