Subject: XML::Parser::PerlSAX should not "use UNIVERSAL"
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 704b
Using .07 but it looks as though .08 has same problem: So if you want to reproduce the problem just do: perl -e 'use XML::Parser::PerlSAX; use Crypt::Random;' It will produce nasty messages about Crypt::Random not exporting subs. Notice that the following does the same error: perl -e 'use UNIVERSAL; use Crypt::Random;' I'm using 5.6.1 and can not upgrade as of yet, I think that using UNIVERSAL in later version of perl may work but it is still not suggested. See following about not use'ing UNIVERSAL: Thanks!
