You might want to submit your report along with a recommended patch, if you want to get it implemented quicker.

I second that, whole-heartedly. In fact, here's my suggestion for a better version (hoping I understand the intent correctly):

sub raw_fetch { my $class = shift; my $raw_cookie = get_raw_cookie(@_) or return; my %results; $raw_cookie =~ s/^\s+//; $raw_cookie =~ s/\s+$//; my(@pairs) = split(/\s*;\s*/,$raw_cookie); foreach (@pairs) { my ($key,$val) = (/^([^=]+)=?(.*)/); $results{$key} = $val; } return \%results unless wantarray; return %results; }
I've only tested it to the extent that the assignments to %results match the original code (except for the trailing whitespace glitch) -- that is, a "raw_cookie" string like this:
one=1 ;two=2; three=the third ; four=  ; five  ; six = the sixth ;
produces these key/value pairs:
'three'=>'the third',
'six '=>' the sixth'
(note that spaces next to "=" are not deleted)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
