Ticket #1168 (new bug)
PMC to Float conversion not working as documented
|Reported by:||jkeenan||Owned by:|

Here are lines 1101-1104 of docs/book/pir/ch04_variables.pod:
$P1 = box "5 birds" $S1 = $P1 # the string "5 birds" $I1 = $P1 # the integer 5 $N1 = $P1 # the number 5.0
On the basis of the comments, if I were to say each of the 4 variables receiving assignment, I would expect the output to be:
5 birds 5 birds 5 5.0
This is not the case.
[study] 511 $ cat 5birds.pir .sub main :main $P1 = box "5 birds" $S1 = $P1 $I1 = $P1 $N1 = $P1 say $P1 say $S1 say $I1 say $N1 .end [study] 512 $ ./parrot 5birds.pir 5 birds 5 birds 5 0
Is this merely a documentation error? Or is it something more serious?
Thank you very much.
