Where do you report perl bugs?

    I have a case where adding a space in a place where it's
    not supposed to matter makes a program work.

    wgroleau$ diff ~/bin/GEDCOM_DB ./tempGCDB
    1c1
    < #!/usr/bin/perl -w -CSD
    ---
    > #!/usr/bin/perl -w -CSD


    od -xc revealed that the extra space is indeed a (hex 20)
    regular space and not a UTF-8 construct.

    Without the extra space, it refuses to run on v5.8.0 built for
    alpha-netbsd 1.6.2_STABLE and it crashes (segmentation fault/bus error)
    on perl, v5.8.1-RC3 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level 7.7.0

    Please don put your entire question in the subject line.

    Use perlbug to report perl bugs (shocking, I know).

    Unless you are the one trying to fix it, more details
    than you want were in another thread.

    Thanks. Appeared to work (no error message).

    Is there an auto-reply to show that it actually arrived?

    You are expected to check the Perl FAQ *before* posting
    to the Perl newsgroup you know.

    perldoc -q bug

    Where do I send bug reports?
