Subject: prototype mismatch warnings (w/patch)

Under 5.10, Data::Visitor gets a prototype mismatch warning due to the conflict between use Scalar::Util qw/blessed refaddr reftype weaken isweak/; and # currently broken has weaken => ( isa => "Bool", is => "rw", default => 0, ); This could also be the reason that it's currently broken, as someone noted in the source. A patch for one possible solution is attached, although you might prefer to simply rename the attribute... --

I can't reproduce this, and I have no idea what could cause this. Yes, 'weaken' is imported from Scalar::Util. Yes, it does have a different prototype than the 'weaken' method Data::Visitor provides. However, the importing happens at compile time. After that, the rest of Data::Visitor gets compiled and all function calls to "weaken" get bound to the function imported from Scalar::Util. Then, at the end of compile time, namespace::clean starts doing its stuff, and removes every code symbol in the Data::Visitor package, which was there before the "use namespace::clean" invocation. That includes the 'weaken' from Scalar::Util. Now compilation is finished and we're at runtime. That executes the "has" statements, which will create accessors for all attributes, including 'weaken', but that won't cause a warning for mismatched prototypes, because at this point there's no weaken function in the current namespace. If you still get those warnings, they're probably caused by a misbehaving namespace::clean. In that case, I'd suggest reporting a bug there.

Sorry about that, turns out that I had at some point while trying to debug some namespace::clean issues, replaced namespace::clean with a no-op version and didn't realize it was still setup that way... --
