05:25 idiosyncrat A respite from my Internet daemons.
05:25 idiosyncrat I looked at my recent CPANtesters fails ...
05:26 idiosyncrat which are all on certain platforms of Andreas Koenig's.
05:26 ronsavage joined #marpa
05:27 idiosyncrat I've emailed Andreas, and I often hear back quickly, but he may be busy this time ...
05:27 idiosyncrat Andreas is not widely known, but he's central to Perl 5's QA, and I amazed he ever has time to get back to me.
05:28 idiosyncrat Andreas often uses his platforms for bleed-testing, not just Perl's but core modules as well.
05:29 idiosyncrat And I note two of this tests are identical except for versions of Time::Piece -- 1.31_01 vs. 1.31_02
05:30 idiosyncrat This leads me to hope this is not a Marpa::R3 problem, but something Andreas & co are working out in the Time::Piece development versions.
05:38 idiosyncrat = Switching topics =
05:38 idiosyncrat Don't know if I announced this already, but Marpa::R3's idea of newlines has changed.
05:39 idiosyncrat In Marpa::R3, newlines will be as defined by the upper level, that is, Perl.  Marpa::R2 made the decision itself and used the Unicode definition, which was a superset ...
05:40 idiosyncrat of the UNIX and Windows ideas of newline.
05:40 idiosyncrat Marpa::R3 will do whatever your Perl is doing.
05:41 idiosyncrat Marpa only uses newlines in error messages, for reporting the line# and column where an error occurs.
05:44 idiosyncrat jdurand: re https://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2017-01-23#i_13971410 -- interesting, thanks
05:46 idiosyncrat === Marpa::R3 4.001_032 ===
05:47 idiosyncrat With my Internet troubles, I never announced Marpa::R3 4.001_032, which I got out just before my outage.
05:47 idiosyncrat CPANtesters is OK, except for the 6 or so problems on Andreas's platforms.
05:47 idiosyncrat Good night!
