Subject: PL_eq Return Values
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 567b
When PL_eq successfully finds one argument is a plural of t'other it gets its "p"s and "s"s muddled in its return value. This specific example is documented as returning "s:p": % perl -MLingua::EN::Inflect=PL_eq -wle 'print PL_eq("index","indexes")' But it prints "p:s" for me (and the opposite way round if the arguments are reversed). The documented behaviour makes the most sense ("s" first corresponds to the first argument being the singular), but accepting the current behaviour and changing the docs to match would avoid breaking backwards compatibility,

True, but since it's documented the sane way, it ought to work the sane way. Patched for the next release. Thanks! Damian
