Creator.pm
I am making a plugin requiring me to use Creator.pm.

I have found a solution to the problem I was having but was just wondering if the original way didn't work due to a bug or my error :)

Basically when uninstalling the plugin I need to drop a table. When reading the docs I noticed:

You can specify to have create drop the table by passing in ``force''.
$creator->create ("force");

....now I tried this and the table didn't drop (no errors). I got around this by using..

$creator->drop_table;

...which worked perfectly.

So should the force option have worked?

No, force would drop the table if it already exists, and then create the table. So it would basically "overwrite" the table. You need to use drop-table to just drop it.

Cheers,

Ah ok. I didn't see anything about the drop_table method in the docs...had to go snopping in Creator.pm - maybe I missed it.
