Bug in $obj->expect() ... ? (Expect 1.15)

Posts: n/a
So I have a bunch of modules and a script running on Solaris, and am
now testing on Mac OS X.

An expect object is instantiated, and stored within a hash, something

$hash->{_expect} = new Expect;

Then, later I make calls to this object's expect() method like so:


On Solaris, this works no problem, however, on Mac OS X, I get the

expect(): ERROR: if called directly (not as $obj->expect(...), but as
Expect::expect(...), first parameter MUST be '-i' to set an object
(list) for the patterns to work on.

So, I've printed $_[0] within Expect's expect() subroutine, and the
only difference is:

$VAR1 = bless( {
'_expect' => bless( \*Symbol::GEN2, 'Expect' ),

$VAR1 = bless( {
'_expect' => bless( \*Symbol::GEN3, 'Expect' ),

The former being from the Mac OS X installation, and the latter from
the Solaris (2.9) Installation. Both are Expect 1.15, and Perl 5.8.6.
