[PATCH] add a cli option to set Parrot's hash seed
|Reported by:||cotto||Owned by:||cotto|
Description (last modified by coke) (diff)
The attached patch adds --hash-seed to parrot's cli options. When set to a valid hex value, interp->hash_seed will contain that value instead of a sorta-random value based on the current time. The value of this is to speed debugging of failures that appear to be related to hash ordering. Coke found such a bug in partcl recently.
The patch is pretty simple, but I thought I'd put this out there before committing in the likely case that I've missed something.
