I've been trying to track down a bug for the last couple days & the silly critter just won't stand still. When I take a Path::Class::Dir object and use a method that attempts to clone that object (for example the file method, needs a new dir object in the file object) sometimes it works great sometimes I get: Operation "eq": no method found, left argument in overloaded package Path::Class::Dir, right argument has no overloaded magic at C:/Perl64/site/lib/Path/Class/ line 25. As far as I can tell, when things go well, perl stringifies the Dir object to the left of the eq & life is good. Unfortunately I can't see what is causing the difference between the good calls & the bad. I've seen a file method blow up on a Dir object that had just recently created a File object without error. I wish I could be more informative. This issue has been quite slippery. Thomas J. Dillman Research Institute on Addictions 1021 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14203
