[perl #72090] unitialized variable name wrong with no strict refs

$ ./perl -we '$a = @$a > 0'
Use of uninitialized value $a in array dereference at -e line 1.
Use of uninitialized value $a in numeric gt (>) at -e line 1.

S_find_uninit_var was not taking into account that rv2*v could return
undef. So it merrily looked at the child ops to find one that named
a variable.

This commit makes it skip any rv2av/rv2hv that does not have an OP_GV
as its child op.

In other words, it skips @{...} and %{...} (including the shorthand
forms @$foo and %$foo), but not @foo or %foo.

Father Chrysostomos [Thu, 9 Dec 2010 00:52:08 +0000 (16:52 -0800)]
[perl #68658] attributes turn "state" into "my"

This is for two reasons:

• In S_my_kid, the attribute-handling code comes before the code that
  marks the padop as being a state instead of a my, which it knows to
  do based on the value of PL_parser->in_my. The attribute-handling
  code begins by setting PL_parser->in_my to FALSE, preventing the
  code that follows from doing its job.

  So now PL_parser->in_my is read at the top of S_my_kid, before the
  attribute code, with the statehood recorded in a boolean. Then the
  code that marks the padop as being state checks that boolean
  instead of in_my.

• A lexical variable declaration that has an attribute and is assigned
  to in the same expression compiles to something similar to:

    (attributes->import(... \$x ...), my $x) = 3;

  where the list is actually in scalar context, returning the my $x
  which is then assigned to (something that cannot be expressed
  directly in Perl syntax). So Perl_ck_sassign needs to take that list
  op into account when creating the ‘once’ op that actually makes
  state assignment work. Up till now it was just looking for a padsv
  on its LHS. This commit makes it check also for a list op whose last
  item is a padsv.
