The Sfio And The Bizarre

| | Comments (0)
So Matthias asked me, well, if we don't need SFIO for MacPerl's IO anymore, can we just not link with it it? I don't know, I replied, but ... doesn't SFIO provide our implementation of sprintf? I thought perl supplied sprintf now, he said. Sorta, I responded, but not for %e, %f, %g. Those are still handled with your local implementation.

I don't know if not linking to SFIO would cause other problems -- I'd probably need to fix a few things here and there, plus the MacPerl app still relies on it for one or two things -- but we need to link to it if for no other reason that we need it for sprintf. Yow!
