Subject: ignore handling fails to work, patch included
About a year ago, Dave Rolsky found and reported a bug in Text::Autoformat that causes ignore to not work correctly. His description: "The problem is the use of "$lastignored &&=". Because of Perl's short-circuiting, the ignore subref is never being called when $lastignored is true. The tests I sent earlier had a bug of their which masked this bug." And his patch: diff -Nru ../Text-Autoformat-1.13/lib/Text/ ./lib/Text/ --- ../Text-Autoformat-1.13/lib/Text/ 2005-05-04 17:44:23.000000000 -0500 +++ ./lib/Text/ 2006-11-15 11:57:40.000000000 -0600 @@ -273,8 +273,8 @@ my $lastignored = 1; for my $index (0..$#paras) { local $_ = $paras[$index]{raw} .

This was obviously fixed at some point in the past, since your proposed fix is already in the code :-)
