NAME

perlintern - autogenerated documentation of purely internal Perl functions

DESCRIPTION

This file is the autogenerated documentation of functions in the Perl interpreter that are documented using Perl's internal documentation format but are not marked as part of the Perl API. In other words, they are not for use in extensions!

  • is_gv_magical

    Returns TRUE if given the name of a magical GV.

    Currently only useful internally when determining if a GV should be created even in rvalue contexts.

    flags is not used at present but available for future extension to allow selecting particular classes of magical variable.

    1. bool is_gv_magical(char *name, STRLEN len, U32 flags)
  • LVRET

    True if this op will be the return value of an lvalue subroutine

  • PL_DBsingle

    When Perl is run in debugging mode, with the -d switch, this SV is a boolean which indicates whether subs are being single-stepped. Single-stepping is automatically turned on after every step. This is the C variable which corresponds to Perl's $DB::single variable. See PL_DBsub .

    1. SV * PL_DBsingle
  • PL_DBsub

    When Perl is run in debugging mode, with the -d switch, this GV contains the SV which holds the name of the sub being debugged. This is the C variable which corresponds to Perl's $DB::sub variable. See PL_DBsingle .

    1. GV * PL_DBsub
  • PL_DBtrace

    Trace variable used when Perl is run in debugging mode, with the -d switch. This is the C variable which corresponds to Perl's $DB::trace variable. See PL_DBsingle .

    1. SV * PL_DBtrace
  • PL_dowarn

    The C variable which corresponds to Perl's $^W warning variable.

    1. bool PL_dowarn
  • PL_last_in_gv

    The GV which was last used for a filehandle input operation. (<FH> )

    1. GV* PL_last_in_gv
  • PL_ofs_sv

    The output field separator - $, in Perl space.

    1. SV* PL_ofs_sv
  • PL_rs

    The input record separator - $/ in Perl space.

    1. SV* PL_rs
