Subject: Multiline values returned as ARRAYs in tied hash interface
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 429b
Greetings The documentation for the tied hash interface says, "...multiline values accessed through a hash will always be returned as a single value..." However, multiline values (indeed any value defined in a here-doc) are always returned as ARRAYs. This is a real pain, since users can provide any value as a here-doc. Please let me know if you need a test case. I'm running perl 5.8.5 on an i686 linux. Many thanks, Nat

Fixed in trunk (with a test case) and will soon be on CPAN. This broke some older tests, which expected the multi-line value to be an array ref. But the documentation is always right. Thanks!
