Subject: Generating invalid signature

This may be a misunderstanding of the documentation rather than a bug, but it seems to me that this should work: #!/usr/bin/perl use Net::OAuth; use LWP::UserAgent; $consumer_key = "7ee438dcff906a5dd9f8d47da2d4b302"; $consumer_secret = "50376257d668ed6e5a4185e6ef51bf9b"; $url = ""; $token = "b75393878750a4b3db0703045947022f"; $token_secret = "76cec704d4f5baf24f2a58659bad05ae"; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $request = Net::OAuth->request("protected resource")->new( consumer_key => $consumer_key, consumer_secret => $consumer_secret, request_url => $url, request_method => 'GET', signature_method => 'HMAC-SHA1', timestamp => time, nonce => int(rand(2 ** 32)), token => $token, token_secret => $token_secret, extra_params => {status => $message}, ); $request->sign; my $response = $ua->get($request->request_url, Authorization => $request->to_authorization_header ); print $response->code . ": " . $response->message . "\n"; Yet it doesn't. It isn't an problem because I've also tried the same code with Twitter with the same result, which is "401 Unauthorised". gives slightly more information, saying "Invalid signature". (Of course, the secrets in the code above are made up, but the ones I'm using are correct.) I'm using Perl 5.10.1 and Net::OAuth 0.28 on Linux.

In my sample code I forgot to change this to "". Show quoted text

And forgot to delete this line... does not affect the bug, though.

Sorry, the problem was my fault. Despite having thought I'd checked everything, the token secret was off by one character. Please close the bug report and sorry for the noise.
