Good morning, Either I'm totally crazy, either the BiDirectional iterator is totally broken. my @set = qw/ one two three four /: my $iterator = Array::Iterator::BiDirectional->new(@set); Current behavior print $iterator->getNext() . "\n";       # one print $iterator->getNext() . "\n";       # two print $iterator->getNext() . "\n";       # three print $iterator->getPrevious() . "\n"; # three print $iterator->getPrevious() . "\n"; # two Expected behavior print $iterator->getNext() . "\n";       # one print $iterator->getNext() . "\n";       # two print $iterator->getNext() . "\n";       # three print $iterator->getPrevious() . "\n"; # two print $iterator->getPrevious() . "\n"; # one Environment lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available.

Yes, you're right. The current implementation is broken in that getNext() will retrieve an item *and then* move the pointer to the next. And then currentItem() resorts to -1 arithmetic, complicating things. This is incompatible with getPrevious(). It tries to move the pointer back one first, and ends up with the current item. Note that I'm not the original author. I'm not sure how the original author (STEVAN) intended Array::Iterator::BiDirectional to be used, perhaps he meant getPrevious() to be called only after the getNext() has been exhausted. Currently I don't have enough time and motivation to fix this module, I'm putting it up for adoption.

Forgot to add this: getPrevious() *could* move the pointer back one first, then move it back another one. But it needs to detect that getNext() has been called first. It's better to fix getNext().
