Subject: ... or die won't work in Parser
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 618b
From Parser in function parse_data: $ENCODED->flush or die "$ME: can't flush: $!"; $ENCODED->seek(0, 0) or die "$ME: can't seek: $!"; ... the or dies are newly introduced, they are not there in earlier versions. It breaks a script I have done which does something like this: my $parser = new MIME::Parser; $parser->output_to_core(1); $parser->tmp_recycling(1); $parser->tmp_to_core(1); my $entity = $parser->parse_data($mail->as_string); What happens with the "or die"-things is that get an undefined value in $entity, and if I remove "or die" it works just as fine as it did with earlier versions of MIME::Tools.

This was caused by broken flush() and seek() calls in the IO-Stringy modules, which were fixed a looong time ago.
