%+ and scope

oha has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi,

I found a strange behavior while trying to return values from %+:

perl -E 'sub foo { local $_ = shift; m{(?<a>\d++)}; say "IN ", @+{qw(a +)}; return @+{qw(a)} } say "OUT ",foo("12.34.56");' IN 12 OUT

I was expecting to get the same result, but apparently the list become empty when exiting the scope.

adding a map (return map { $_ } @+{qw(a)}) fix the issue, and it does not show by just returning $+{a}.

Am i missing something or there's something wrong?

TIA

update: see 976633
