BackupPC or Data::Dumper playing foul...?by Krambambuli (Curate)
|on Apr 08, 2022 at 16:20 UTC||Need Help??|
Krambambuli has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This works fine for older versions of Data::Dumper, but fails for newer ones.
Replacing the line referring Data::Dumper with
solves the issue, but I'm not sure I understand why exactly.
In particular, I would like to understand if it's BackupPC doing something that it shouldn't when using [*value], or if it is Data::Dumper that broke the rules by doing things differently now.
(Later edit) Looks like the correct question is like
should [*value] be a list or an arrayref?
