[ID 20000331.003] Sort subroutine single nonsingle value
Message ID:
200003311111.NAA03930@theseus.fi.muni.cz

This is a bug report for perl from adelton@fi.muni.cz,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

Please consider this simple script

	sub czcmp
		{ return 0; }
	sub czsort
		{ sort { czcmp($a, $b); } @_; }		## this is line 4
	my @a = czsort(1, 2);

The script fails with

	Sort subroutine didn't return single value at tst line 4.

which IMHO shouldn't -- I simply declare a block and call
a function there, but the sort somehow seems to catch that @_. If I call
it with just czsort(1), the error is not there.

Under 5.005_03 and previous, this code (taken from Cz::Sort module)
works fine. It's simple to workaround it but I still think it is
a bug, since nor perldelta nor perlfunc seem to suggest that this
use of sort is not allowed.

Yours,
