Thank You

Okay - with that flag it does work the way I was expecting/wanted.

I'm not sure this is a positive change on their part.

And now there is something searchable for people in the same boat as I was.

    I'm not either, even if there are good reasons for the feature, changing defaults is icky icky icky :)

    Actually, the more I think about it, the more I consider this a bug.

    Actually I'm sure its a bug.

    • It is not documented properly (not in Perl::Tidy).
    • there are no tests for it.
    • I just checked, and this has been the behaviour of Perl-Tidy since 05-Nov-2002. Changing the defaults after 8+ years is just dumb. jswartz was smart enough to add this feature, he should have been smart enough to change his perltidy config file :) and not mess with the defaults

    You should definitely report this :)
