Subject: [PATCH 1/4] HACKING: use "just-ahead-of-time" to describe Inline::C
Date: Wed,  3 Feb 2021 15:51:41 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Inline::C works during module load time, so "just-ahead-of-time"
is a better description of it than "just-in-time".  I don't
think "JAOT" is a well-known enough acronym, so it's worth
spelling it out.

 Avoid relying on compiled modules too much.  Even if it is Free,
 compiled code makes packages more expensive to audit, build,
 distribute and verify.  public-inbox itself will only be implemented

 Do not recurse on user-supplied data.  Neither Perl or C handle
 deep recursion gracefully.  See lib/PublicInbox/
