in thread DB_File modes

...Mostly on non-Unix platforms. You sometimes receive just a 1, true, on success. I have been burned on this a few times, but then again, I work with a lot of non-Unix distributions. Thanks. -c

    That is not a very convincing argument.

    Since you arent going to elaborate, I'll just go ahead and refute your claims

    DB_File has contained this code longer than perl 5.5 has existed. The situation you describe is nigh impossible (bless would have to fail and return 1, TIEHASH would have to fail and return 1).

    15 May 1997 http://search.cpan.org/~chips/perl5.004/

    07 May 1997 http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/PMQS/DB_File-1.14/DB_File.pm

    sub TIEHASH { my $pkg = shift ; bless { VALID => { map {$_, 1} qw( bsize ffactor nelem cachesize hash lorder) }, GOT => {} }, $pkg ; }

    If you intentionally return 1 , tied would return undef.
