Suggest a reference from Archive:Zip to Archive::Zip::MemberRead in the documentation, in See also, and possibly explain why it can be more convenient if you want to process some large members contents. Just found out some guy who was using Archive::Zip on comp.lang.perl.misc, and obviously hadn't found about the subclass. Which isn't very surprising, assuming he read the manpage on his system, instead of browsing the distribution on CPAN.

Hi Mr. Espie! Thanks for reporting this problem. It is now fixed in the trunk. Note that fixing your problem uncovered a few "new $PKG(...)" calls in the ::MemberRead documentation, which are now fixed as well. So thanks again. Here are the change log entries: <<<<<<<<<< - Removed a double "required module" from the Archive::Zip POD. - Fixed ("documentation improvement"): - mentioned Archive::Zip::MemberRead in a few places. - TODO: - 1. Add a method to Archive::Zip to get a ::MemberRead from an archive member using -> notation. (?) - 2. In the POD of ::MemberRead - replace the indirect object call. - Changed the POD of ::MemberRead: - replaced the indirect object construction with $PKG->new(). Show quoted text
