I already mailed the author but maybe someone here also know the answer?

If I have identical blocks in a Config::General configuration file like the one in my example below. What will be the sequence in which my script receives them? Will it be document order? From my test it seems to be the case, but I couldn't find anything about the order in the documentation.

here is my example code:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; use Config::General; my $conf = new Config::General( -String => <<'CONFIG' ); <option> value 1 </option> <option> value 2 </option> CONFIG print Dumper( { $conf->getall() } ); exit;
On my system the result is
$VAR1 = { 'option' => [ { 'value' => '1' }, { 'value' => '2' } ] };
Which is the document order I expected. But can I be sure that it will always be the case? Even in the next release of Config::General?
