> Perl Bindings: Set serialization/deserialization differs
> --------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: THRIFT-3595
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-3595
>             Project: Thrift
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Perl - Compiler
>    Affects Versions: 0.9.1, 0.9.2, 0.9.3
>            Reporter: Adam Millerchip
>            Assignee: James E. King, III
>            Priority: Major
> In the Perl bindings, a Thrift Set is dezerialized as a hashref, but the 
> serialization code expects an arrayref. This causes the code to die when 
> called if attempting to serialize a previously dezerialized Set.
> Additionally, it looks like there is a typo in the test that is testing this 
> feature:
> https://github.com/apache/thrift/blob/49f4dc0cd8c87213a0f80ae1daba2d094a358ea7/test/perl/TestClient.pl#L262
> If you change that {{@$setout}} to {{@$setin}}, the test fails.
> It doesn't make much sense to implement a Set in Perl as array, because 
> arrays allow duplicate entries and are ordered.
> I've written a change for the serialization that correctly expects a hashref: 
> https://github.com/apache/thrift/pull/831
