Ticket #1298 (closed RFC: wontfix)
opcodes, warnings, and exceptions
|Reported by:||particle||Owned by:||whiteknight|
the api for opcodes needs review, especially with regard to the response to exceptional behavior. for example, the documentation for B<length> in src/ops/string.ops reads:
=item B<length>(out INT, in STR) Set result $1 to the length (in characters) of string $2. If $2 is NULL or zero length, zero is returned.
however, if a null string is passed in to length, the user should get some notification of an exceptional condition. *at least* a warning, and possibly a fatal exception.
