Subject: Infinite loop in HTML::Element method as_text() [version 3.23]
Date: Mon, 4 Mar 2013 12:47:07 -0600
To: bug-HTML-Tree@rt.cpan.org
From: Marshall Cline <marshall.cline@parashift.com>
Thanks for your excellent work.

Bug location: in version 3.23, at line 1653 of HTML/Element.pm:

  while(@pile) {
    if(!defined($pile[0])) { # undef!
      # no-op
    } elsif(...blah...) {
      ...blah...
    } else {
      ...blah...
    }
  }

Solution: change '# no-op' to 'shift @pile;'.

My best,
M

I'm not quite sure how you managed to get undef into a tree, but you're right that it'll cause an infinite loop if you do. Your fix is applied in 5.904. Thanks for the report.
