Subject: extract_codeblock fat-comma parsing broken by over-eager quotelike { y => $y }
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 771b
For trying to parse a hashref, extract_codeblock looks superficially attractive. However, the quotelike parsing is too eager to match y => as the quotelike operator y=...= So: $ extract_codeblock '{ x => $x, y => $y}, { x => $x2, y => $y2 }' $VAR1 = '{ x => $x, y => $y}, { x => $x2, y => $y2 }'; $VAR2 = ''; $VAR3 = ''; Whereas I'd have expected a behaviour more similar to: $ extract_bracketed '{ x => $x, y => $y}, { x => $x2, y => $y2 }', '{}' $VAR1 = '{ x => $x, y => $y}'; $VAR2 = ', { x => $x2, y => $y2 }'; $VAR3 = ''; I think the solution is to disambiguate '=>' differently, which seems to be what Perl itself does: $ my $x = 'foo'; $ $x =~ s=<foo== # OK $ $x =~ s=>foo== # NOT OK: Compile error: syntax error

Looks like that PR got deleted. Have rebased and reworked against SHAY's new repo and issued new PR at https://github.com/steve-m-hay/Text-Balanced/pull/1
