Subject: overloaded $@ caused issues ... not enough magic
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 359b
Trying to load a package that loaded Math::BigInt into AxKit2 I got the following: eval Operation "eq": no method found, left argument in overloaded package AxKit2::StructuredError, right argument has no overloaded magic at /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Math/BigInt.pm line 2437. I resolved it by changing line 2437 from if ($@ eq '') to if ("$@" eq '')

I am not sure if this is the right way to fix. Wouldn't it make much more sense to fix the overloading for $@ inside AxKit2 to provide a stringify method? If AxKit2 returns an overloeaded object, it should make sure the object is usable and not halfbroken. Otherwise, a lot more code than just BigInt will be not working with it.

I am marking this as "WONTFIX", as I couldn't determine what exactly was wrong and if the error is in BigInt or the package that uses it. If you stil have problems, please respond to this message with more details.
