John Karp updated AVRO-1470:
----------------------------

    Summary: Perl API boolean type misencoded  (was: Inconsistent handling of boolean type)

> Perl API boolean type misencoded
> --------------------------------
>
>                 Key: AVRO-1470
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1470
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: perl
>            Reporter: John Karp
>
> The boolean serialization code in BinaryEncoder.pm is:
> {noformat}
> $data ? \0x1 : \0x0
> {noformat}
> meaning anything false to perl, such as 0, '0', '', () and undef are encoded as zero,
and everything else is encoded as one.
> However, the code used in Schema.pm to determine which union branch to use, is attempting
to check for boolean-ness with:
> {noformat}
> m{yes|no|y|n|t|f|true|false}i
> {noformat}
> meaning only those particular strings are considered booleans, however they will all
get encoded as '0' by BinaryEncoder.pm.
> I say 'attempts' because its actually matching this regex against the data type name
$type, which in this context will always be 'boolean', instead of of the value $data.
