Perl v 5.8.8 built for Sun-Solaris CGI 3.25 CGI::Pretty 1.08 G'day, Thanks for providing the wider world with a fantastic library! Much appreciated. I thought I'd put my 2c worth in with an insignificant patch that keeps a lot of garbage out of some of my html. Perhaps it's useful to others? Essentially the _prettyPrint function in CGI::Pretty recurses a lot and in some of the more serious forms it hits the 100 recursions quite often. This causes Perl to spout warnings about deep recursions and the Netscape webserver that my clients still use picks those up and prints them in random places in the HTML output. This patch stops Perl warning about _prettyPrint recursing (we know it does..). Hope it is of use! Cheers, and keep up the good work! Tony
Thanks for the patch. It's going into version 3.41.
