Subject: Array Ref issue in sub colored
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 968b
The sub "colored" does only check if the passed parameter is a reference, but not if it's indeed an array refence. 227 sub colored { 228 my ($string, @codes); 229 if (ref $_[0]) { I think this should definitely be fixed. See the following script example. $ cat #!/usr/bin/perl use Term::ANSIColor; print colored("ok\n", 'bold blue'); $foo = Foo->new(); print colored($foo . "", 'bold blue'); # stringify applies print colored($foo, 'bold blue'); # perl error package Foo; use overload '""' => 'stringify'; sub new { $self = {}; bless( $self ); } sub stringify { return "Foo Bar\n"; } $ perl ok Foo Bar Not an ARRAY reference at /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/Term/ line 230. $ In my case it's a serious problem because I use Term::ANSIColor with Log::Log4Perl::Appender and DBIx::Class. In case of SQL error DBIx::Class passes a blessed reference into the ->log method o which then is passed tsub colored.
