Hi! The module is able to read and write multiline values pretty well. Though, it seems to use hardwired the string EOT for the here documents it writes into the config file, and when a multiline string actually contains EOT on a single line the module breaks the file for itself to be able to read it back in. I would suggest rejecting to accept such a value. I see it that there is an explicit SetParameterEOT($section, $EOT) mentioned in the manpage to mitigate the effect of this, but the module really shouldn't break the file in the first place and rather reject such values. Also it might be helpful to set the marker not by section but actually even by section/value pair. That way one wouldn't have to scan through all the multiline values of a section to find a marker that wouldn't break the section. Thanks, Gerfried Fuchs

I refactored the code into shape (with a little bug fixing). I'm not sure the bug exists in the current code on CPAN (not Config-IniFiles version 2.49 which is very old and buggier than the current release as it was submitted for), but now we can be better sure it's gone. Please test version 2.63 as it was submitted today and see if it still exists there.
