in reply to Config::Validate: problem with a key type

Quoting the perldoc:


The string type does no validation if no addition restrictions are specified. Valid options are:

* min
Minimum length
* max
Maximum length
* regex
String must match the regex provided.

    Adding those additional restrictions has no effect. This is my current $schema:

    my $schema = { section => { type => 'nested', child => { key => { type => 'string', regex => qr/^ ARRAY \( 0x\p{HexDigit}{1,8} \) $/x, }, }, }, };

    The code still runs to completion. If I make the regex different (e.g. by changing "ARRAY" into "ARAY"), the code complains about the data not matching the schema. Looks like a bug to me...

    Thank you for giving me the clue!
