Subject: -no_sticky documentation issues

Hi, As bug 38061 -nosticky doesn't seem to work exaclty as documented. There is also asl this dangling reference to a -no_sticky pragma in section FORM ELEMENTS: A boolean, which, if true, forces the element to take on the value specified by -value, overriding the sticky behavior described earlier for the -no_sticky pragma. -no_sticky (with an underscore) doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere else. Another curious thing is that when I try to call $CGI::nosticky(1) as the comments in CGI.pm suggest, I seem to always get a syntax error at the call site, even when there isn't anything else on the line except a semicolon.

Thanks. That reference to no_sticky is a typo. Show quoted text

That's another typo. It means to say this: $CGI::NOSTICKY = 1;
Thanks, a patch for this has been added to my github repo. Mark
Subject: released, thanks.
I believe this change was released today as part of CGI.pm 3.45. Thanks for the contribution.
