Subject: Subroutine HTML::Strip::DESTROY redefined
On recent perls (probably since 5.15.6), using HTML::Strip generates a warning: % perl -we 'use HTML::Strip' Subroutine HTML::Strip::DESTROY redefined at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20/DynaLoader.pm line 210. Apparently the diagnostics have improved, as there are indeed DESTROY methods in both Strip.pm and Strip.xs. It looks like the one Strip.pm never gets called. (This is also tracked as https://bugs.debian.org/785032 ) Thanks for your work on free software, -- Niko Tyni (Debian Perl team) ntyni@debian.org

Update: I've just patched our Debian package to disable the pure Perl version of the DESTROY method to fix the warning. This is not quite optimal as it probably leaves a small memory leak, but that's been the case earlier anyway. Please let me know if you have a better fix.

I just hit this too. Any chance of a new release?
My rt.cpan.org emails seem to be going into a black hole. Apologies for the ludicrously long delay. I've fixed the warning and just uploaded v2.10 to cpan.
2.10 now available on CPAN.
