( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Seems to me that the problem with storable is that assignment to $_[0] doesn't work as it should work, or more specifically, as it would work in a normal perl subroutine.

For instance when I read this node my first though was "Hmm, you mean

sub STORABLE_thaw { $_[0]= $singleton; }

doesn't work?". And of course when I tried it, it didn't.

Anyway, it seems to me that making assignment to @_ possible in the STORABLE_freeze() hook would resolve your problem, and I think would be backwards compatible.

Ill just add the mandatory shameless plug: with Data::Dump::Streamer this is easy.

package Foo; use Data::Dump::Streamer; my $singleton=bless {},'Foo'; my $proxy=bless [],'Bar'; my $nope; sub DDS_freeze { return if $nope; return ($proxy,"->DDS_thaw") } sub Bar::DDS_thaw { $singleton; } my @array=($singleton,$singleton,$singleton); my $array=Dump(\@array)->Names('array')->Out(); print "$array\n---\n"; eval $array or die $@; $nope=1; Dump($singleton,\@array,$array)->Names(qw(singleton *array array))->Ou +t(); __END__ $array = [ bless( [], 'Bar' )->DDS_thaw(), 'V: $array->[0]', 'V: $array->[0]' ]; $array->[1] = $array->[0]; $array->[2] = $array->[0]; --- $singleton = bless( {}, 'Foo' ); @array = ( $singleton, $singleton, $singleton ); $array = [ $singleton, $singleton, $singleton ];
