in thread Blessables -- What Can You Make Into Objects?

Actually stringifying a regex does not return a string that contains "Regexp". It will look like any other scalar reference that has been stringified. (Youre thinking of what ref() would return.)

Thats part of the problem...

    But that's why I overloaded stringification to contain 'Regexp' instead of 'SCALAR', because we still want ref() to return the classname and we want some way to determine of our blessed object is a Regexp type right?
      Ah. I should have read your code closer. Apologies.

      Nice trick, but I need this to work for any arbitrary classname. This is for a new Data::Dumper module. Er, for that matter Data::Dumper has the same problem:

      use Data::Dumper; my $x=bless qr/dedum/,'foo'; print Dumper($x); __END__ $VAR1 = bless( do{\(my $o = undef)}, 'foo' );
