Config::Validate: problem with a key typeby Hue-Bond (Priest)
|on Mar 22, 2010 at 16:25 UTC||Need Help??|
Hue-Bond has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
One of the requirements I want to impose is that some configuration keys shouldn't be repeated. When I repeat a key, Config::General creates an array to hold all the given values. I expect Config::Validate to reject that array (since it's not a plain string) but that's not happening. Funnily, if I tell Config::Validate that I want an integer instead of a string, it does die as desired.
Here is some code to show the problem:
How do I reject such a configuration?
Update: I just reported this bug.
