When I see bugs, I like to track 'em down and fix them.

I have made regular contributions to perl in recent years, and minor contributions in various other directions. One day maybe I'll get to write that operating system, but in the meantime I play, and I learn.

Fixed a bug in which perldoc sometimes fails to find module docs [PATCH 5.6.0]; tracked down the cause of a 'panic: malloc' error in perl5.005_03 (already fixed in 5.6.0); first pass at a Mail::mh module, which involved lots of fun with IPC::Open3 and select().

Fixed a reentrancy bug in perl's sort: [PATCH 5.6.0].
