I'm glad to hear you're still happy with DBIx::Simple.

About the TT issue: While I understand the problem and acknowledge that it is annoying, I strongly believe that this should not be fixed in the numerous modules that happen to be compatible with Template Toolkit, but in Template Toolkit itself. I might release a compatibility package, but I'm not willing to mess with DBIx::Simple itself for this.

I find the name "hash_array" very confusing, by the way. I'd probably call it "array_of_hashes".

The correct solution to this problem, if you want it in DBIx::Simple, is to use your own result class. Untested code follows.

use strict; package DBIx::Simple::TT; use base 'DBIx::Simple'; sub connect { my $self = shift->SUPER::connect(@_); $self->result_class = 'DBIx::Simple::Result::ForcedScalar'; } package DBIx::Simple::Result::ForcedScalar; use base 'DBIx::Simple::Result'; my $stash = \%DBIx::Simple::Result::ForcedScalar::; our %list_methods; $list_methods{$_} = 1 for qw( arrays hashes list flat columns map map_hashes map_arrays ); for my $method (keys %list_methods) { $method =~ /^[a-z]\w+$/ or next; my $supermethod = "SUPER::$method"; $stash->{$method} = sub { scalar shift->$method(@_) }; }
Do you think that this would solve your problem?
