Subject: Fatal error on dumping a stash with a constant
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 725b
This bug is most likely related to <>. In the attached test script, Dump dies in a relatively benign way in 1.14 when trying to Dump a stash with a constant. Output via STDERR: Can't locate object method "ARRAY" via package "B::SPECIAL" at C:/Perl/site/lib/Data/Dump/ line 3157. Data::Dump::Streamer version: 1.14 Perl version: 5.008008 After upgrading to 2.03_30, the error gets more serious as there is no output at all, even the END block is no longer executed. I guess this means there's a coredump. Tested on, ActivePerl 5.8.8 build 817 on Windows XPSP2, using MinGW (gcc) 3.2.3 to compile the module. Needless to say, all tests are succesful for both.

#! perl -w use Data::Dump::Streamer; { package Foo; use constant bar => "abc"; } Dump(\%Foo::); END { printf STDERR "Data::Dump::Streamer version: %s\n", $Data::Dump::Streamer::VERSION; printf STDERR "Perl version: %s\n", $]; }
Works fine now.
