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

There is now a new release, VERSION 2.01, of Readonly that addresses the problems in the original post. On closer examination it turned out that while

Readonly my @baz = (qw/glug argh/); Readonly my %h = (key => 42);

initialized variables with the right values, the resulting variables were not read only and could be modified unlike variables correctly initialized with the '=>' operator. So the new patch/release disallows initialization by assignment with a 'croak' message.

An issue was opened and now closed for the concern in this post: Readonly GitHub issue 18. It turns out that Readonly has old issues on as well as new issues on GitHub. There actually was a ticket for the posted problem on but I didn't know enough to check there when I searched. The rt ticket 86086 may now be closed AFAICT.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
