The implementation of all Array::Utils functions have the following assumptions: - values uniqueness is the uniqueness of its string representation - the string representation of the value is the value As a consequence, those function have limits on the kind of values that can be processed: - undef will not work - objects will not work (they will be replaced by their string value) - dual vars will not work (they will be replaced by their string value) This limit should be clearly stated in the documentation.
