There are two problems. Readonly::is_sv_readonly is not a documented public interface, so anyone relying on is it doing something unreliable. Secondly, Readonly::XS itself is using undocumented Perl interfaces. SvREADONLY doesn’t necessarily indicate that a scalar is read-only. But it *does* indicate that a POK scalar has a read-only string buffer. -- Father Chrysostomos --- via perlbug: queue: perl5 status: open
