0.02% of perl is my fault

I just saw a journal entry of Léon Brocard's in which he says that 0.02% of perl is his fault, and giving the breakdown for all those who contributed at least 2 lines to the perl interpreter according to a script he found.

According to the results in that entry, I contributed 491+4 = 495 lines, or 0.02%, to the current version of perl.

I'm rather surprised that the number was that high; I wonder what my contributions were.

(I seem to recall submitting a bug about the Y2K testing code which got things wrong—looking for '19' being tacked to the end of a variable rather than onto the beginning IIRC—but other than that I'm not sure what I contributed.)
