in reply to Recursive copier

You could get the effect of a deep copy by serializing and deserializing a data structure, using some method of serialization. Eg. Data::Dumper or Storable.

Or you could also investigate the Clone module, which I've not seen before but which is on CPAN. It looks like it should do what you want:

use Clone qw(clone); my $b = clone($a);

[Corion]: (that module has been deprecated by its author already, so that's fair. Although I wonder why the backtracking can't be fixed to handle the formfeeds gracefully)
[choroba]: not enough tuits?
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, maybe. I'm also unaware of who uses Email:: modules, but that's more my limited horizon of things ;)
[Corion]: Ah - there even is the replacement of Email::Address::XS , by the bug reporter, which hopefully fixes this bug already ;)
