Subject: Readonly scalars and looks_like_number function
Download (untitled) / with headers

The 'looks_like_number' function doesn't handle Readonly variables properly: http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-perl-list/2007-January/msg00005.html No change when using Readonly::XS any ideas? Versions: perl 5.8.8

I've also encountered this. Specifically, it goops up bind parameters to DBI calls because looks_like_number returns the wrong thing. This could be a problem in Scalar::Util, though.

I looked a little further into it and I've posted an additional bug to the Scalar::Util distribution since it may be wrong there. That's CPAN RT ticket #26385.

https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=26385 is resolved, so presumably this ticket can be as well.
