in reply to Best way to deal with a bug in a CORE Module

just make a note of it in my own docs and go on?

Bump the version number and make a note in your code/Makefile.PL

If you have a CPAN account, you should release a patched version and save the next monk-ey from having to go to rt, find patch, download patch, apply patch, deploy patch ... they can just  cpan BOTFX/AppConfig-1.6601.tar.gz and be done with it

Beyond that, there are numerous bug reports for that module, seems a bit dis-concerting for something that is included as part of CORE... CORE...

Where do you get that idea?

$ corelist AppConfig Data for 2013-11-20 AppConfig was not in CORE (or so I think)

    I could be mistaken, I thought I saw it in the CORE list. But then again, jokes about "old-timers disease" aren't so funny anymore. I just checked on the Perl site so it would appear you are correct.

    It helps to remember that the primary goal is to drain the swamp even when you are hip-deep in alligators.
