in thread A data structure for XML generation

Yep, shows 1.08. But I've tried the cpan shell on Max OS X, and it only gets 1.05 from my region's mirrors, and my Linux box gets 1.05 from the repository

    It's related to this node: Fix CPAN uploads for world writable files. I did not notice the upload failed to be "indexed". Because of some clever "security" update on CPAN implemented by someone who only ever thinks of Unix.

    I'll release 1.09 and hope I do it so that they like it.

    Update: I released 1.08.1 and it seems to be available via CPAN and PPM now.

    Enoch was right!
    Enjoy the last years of Rome.

[Eily]: you could tie a variable into not having the same value each time, if you like to make people who try to debug your code facepalm
[Corion]: perl -wle 'package o; use overload q("") => sub {warn "str"; ""}, bool => sub{warn "bool"; 1}; package main; my $o={}; bless $o => o; print "Yay" if ($o && !length($o))'
[Corion]: But people writing such code should document the objects they construct and why it makes sense for an object to be invisible as string while being true in a boolean context
[hippo]: That's equal parts clever and horrendous.
[Eily]: the overload version wouldn't return true with "$x" && !length $x though, I guess
[hippo]: The more I look at this code, the more $x is a plain old scalar and the more this condition will never be true. I'm calling it a bug at this point.
[hippo]: Thanks for your input which has soothed my sanity (a little)
[Corion]: Eily: Sure - if you force both things into stringy things, then you break that magic. But that would also mean that you changed the expression, as now $x = 0.00 will be true instead of false as it were before
[Corion]: Ah no, at least in my feeble experiments that doesn't change the meaning
[Corion]: We sell sanity in small packages ;)
