Subject: Error using IO::ScalarArray in mime decoder
Download (untitled) / with headers

SOAP::Lite 0.65 fails to pass tests with a deserialisation error. This has been tracked down to the line in the process_singlepart subroutine: ### Flush and rewind encoded buffer, so we can read it: $ENCODED->flush or die "$ME: can't flush: $!"; The IO::Handle::flush method is documented NOT to return anything, therefore the writer of IO::ScalarArray has implemented a skeleton flush() method to be compatible with all other IO classes. This test fails here causing SOAP::Lite to fail its tests. Changing the line to read: $ENCODED->flush; cures the problem. Maybe the IO::Scalar and IO::ScalarArray libraries need fixing and the IO::Handle docs improved but for now lets not get fussy. Yours, Karl Royer

Fixed over two years ago in IO-Stringy 2.110. The next release of MIME-tools will require that version.
