- All input values in the range (-1,1) written as a decimal number, e.g.,

nuking too much. It was only done to kill the cmd.exe+perl.exe tree that
was unexpectedly launched by system(1, $cmd), but by switching to

David Mitchell [Fri, 8 May 2015 13:46:01 +0000 (14:46 +0100)]
RT #124156: death during unwinding causes crash

v5.19.3-139-g2537512 changed POPSUB and POPFORMAT so that they also
unwind the relevant portion of the scope stack. This (sensible) change
means that during exception handling, contexts and savestack frames are
popped in lock-step, rather than all the contexts being popped followed by
all the savestack contents.

However, LEAVE_SCOPE() is now called by POPSUB/FORMAT, which can trigger
destructors, tied method calls etc, which themselves may croak. The new
unwinding will see the old sub context still on the context stack and call
POPSUB on it again, leading to double frees etc.

At this late stage in code freeze, the least invasive change is to
use an unused bit in cx->blk_u16 to indicate that POPSUB has already
been called on this context frame.

Sometime later, this whole area of code really needs a thorough overhaul.
The main issue is that if cxstack_ix-- is done too early, then calling
destructors etc can overwrite the current context frame while we're still
using using it; if cxstack_ix-- is done too late, then that stack frame
can end up getting unwound twice.

I've expanded on things mainly where I personally was confused by what the
entry was trying to say, and where I had to refer back to the src or RT

Some specific stuff:

"qr/foo/x> now ignores any Unicode pattern white space" appeared under
both "Core Enhancements" and "Incompatible Changes"; I've consolidated
both entries into one, in the latter section.

\C now in fact warns; it was already deprecated in an earlier release.

Performance efactoring of pp_tied and pp_ref is really a minor internal
detail not significant enough for a perldelta.

"Pathtools doesn't try to load XS on miniperl" - I've moved this from
"performance" to "build", since it doesn't affect the performance of perl
binary, but only how long it takes to build that binary.

"A typo fix reduces the size of the C<< OP >> structure." - this both
broke and was fixed within 5.21.x, so I've removed the entry.
