in reply to Buggy smartmatch on tied array?

I can at least verify that it's an issue on 5.18. And the code looks reasonable to me. Of course on 5.18 I also get:

Smartmatch is experimental at ./mytest.pl line 4. Smartmatch is experimental at ./mytest.pl line 6.

You might search the bug queue for issues related to smartmatch to see if it's already been reported. If not, go for it. I think the operator is in a state of flux, but it would be a shame for little things like this to not get fixed if the operator ever has its experimental designation removed again.

    It's probably a trivial thing to fix, and it will be. Smart match is experimental because it has major design issues.
