Dear Marto, i was referring to the module owners (i.e. people who have created these packages and uploaded on cpan). I no way meant i need a quick reply to my query.

    You said:

    "But for some reason it is not going into the if condition today and am really appalled by so little support in perl by the module owners."

    You state that today is the first day you are having problems. So you expect support within the space of a day, Keeping in mind the the module owner/maintainer may yet have no idea you're having problems? What have you done to bring this to their attention? What makes you think it's a problem with their module and not your code or the sites you're interacting with? Why are you appalled? What level of service do you expect or deem acceptable from the module authors? How much are you paying for this support?

    Update: If as you claim this has worked until today, clearly something has change, either your code, or the data.

[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 ;)
