aufflick has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

What the title says - anyone hit this before? The Storable docs (perl 5.8.5) don't say anything about it.

psh% print Dumper $foo $VAR1 = { 'bar' => qr/(?-xism:bar)/ }; psh% $foo2 = Storable::dclone $foo psh% print Dumper $foo2 $VAR1 = { 'bar' => qr/Regexp=SCALAR(0x8df0b40)/ };
The main store/restore functionality works fine with compiled regexes - I would have thought that dclone uses the same code? How does anyone else do deep cloning of hashes?
