it would be nice if 'read' and 'read_string' were defined using 'my $self = ref $_[0] ? shift : bless {}, shift;' Yes, I realize that this (in theory) could break existing code, but the advantages are fairly big, IMHO. This simple change wouldn't increase the size of the module, but would allow straightforward code like this: my $config = Config::Tiny->new(); # set hard-coded defaults $config->read_string(<<DEFAULTS); [section] this = a value that = another value DEFAULTS # merge site defaults, over-riding the above $config->read("/etc/config.ini"); # set user-specified values $config->read("$ENV{HOME}/.config.ini"); Pre-existing code like this would continue to work: my $config = Config::Tiny->read('config.ini');
