Make t/win32/system.t use the more common compiler check

Hello again,

much of the Perl test suite uses $Config{cc} =~ /^gcc/i to determine
whether the compiler looks/acts like gcc. This patch enables that
behaviour in t/win32/system.t too.

The reason behind this is that I have a batch file named gcc-ccache.cmd,
which I give to dmake as my compiler, and having things like this work
everywhere in Perl is nice.

Possibly, a more sane way of keeping the kind of compiler handy would be
to make $Config{CCTYPE} come into existence and have it store "gcc",
"msvc" and what other cc types we support.

Karl [Mon, 19 Jan 2009 02:51:43 +0000 (19:51 -0700)]
Add NameAliases.txt; regenerate mktables.list

The NameAliases.txt is an official Unicode database file.  It contains
normative names of Unicode code points that any Unicode implementation
is supposed to recognize.  These are actually corrections to names that
have been published in UnicodeData.txt erroroneously, but to avoid
breaking code that uses the erroneous name, the folks at Unicode create
these additional ones.  (There are about a dozen entries now)

I changed mktables to append these names to for use by
charnames.  This might break any existing code that relies on that file
being sorted in numerical code point order.  But if I added them sorted,
it might break code that relied on there being only one entry per code
point.  It's not clear that this file format is considered published and
the api can't change.  The point of the file is to go from the name to
the code point anyway, so the order shouldn't matter to any application
using it for its intended purpose.

mktables.list was not regenerated for 5.1, so was out-of-date.  The
ordering was random (Linux inode order), so the difference listing for
it is large.  I did sort the lists manually and compared them, and they
look ok.  I changed mktables to sort the list, so that this problem
doesn't arise again.

I also corrected some typos in mktables, and added a clarifing comment.

Add aliases for several version numbers in Module::CoreList

[ #41827] Can't use $] to select Perl version

The %version hash is initialized with bare numbers for each Perl
version.  Unfortunately, the tokenizer will have already eaten trailing
zeros before the fat comma operator is seen, hence the normal
stringification behavior won't have the appropriate affect.

This can be seen by doing something simple like:

perl5.10.0 -MModule::CoreList -e \
'print keys(%{$Module::CoreList::version{$]}})'

which will be empty, since $] is a string not a number.  Using $]+0 (to
force numification) will display all of the modules released with 5.10.0.

Either 5.000 and 5.010000 need to be quoted in the %version
initialization or an alias be created, so either 5.01 or "5.010000" (and
hence $]) will work.  This latter is probably better to use, trivial patch

[perl #59908] \x, \0, and \N{} not ok in double-quotish when followed by > \x100

Attached is a patch for this problem.

The root cause was that S_scan_const() was not recoding to utf8 under
some circumstances when it should be.

I also changed it so that in all places, the flag that indicates the
output is in utf8 is changed from false to true if and only if the
destination is recoded to utf8.  One place was skipping this, and then
setting it unconditionally later on.

In one place in the routine, the routine had code to do the recoding
itself.  In the other places, it called sv_utf8_upgrade().  I changed it
to call the subroutine in all cases.

I fixed a bug that would appear only on EBCDIC machines where constants
of the form \N{U+....} would have been interpreted as EBCDIC.

And in inspecting the code, I realized there were problems with growing
the scalar value to fit the input.  I cleaned those up.

I also added a number of comments to document things I found out, and
changed some existing ones to be more accurate.

Since no one responded to my request for where to put the test cases,
and I couldn't figure out a good place to put them, I added a new test
file, t/uni/lex_utf8.t.
