kurila19delta - what is new for Perl Kurila 1.9


This document describes differences between Perl Kurila 1.8 and Perl Kurila 1.9

Highlights In Perl Kurila 1.9

Core Enhancements

Conversion of a reference to a string raises an error

When a reference is used as a string an error is raised. dump::view can be used to view the variable. ref::address can be used to get the address of the variable.


Makes finding errors where a reference is used as a string easier.

New reference comparison operators \== and \!=

There are two new operators \== and \!= which can be used to compare reference. Both arguments to the operators must be references otherwise an error is raised. \== returns true if both references refer to the same referent, false otherwise.


Because refernces can no longer be compared using eq new operator where needed.
