Bug#526436: libperl4caml-ocaml-dev: Using regexp fails with www_mechanize.follow_link

Package: libperl4caml-ocaml-dev
Version: 0.9.5-2
Severity: important
Tags: patch

In the module Pl_WWW_Mechanize, class www_mechanize, if I use the method
follow_link with label url_regex or text_regex I got a Perl error message
telling me the argument is not a regexp.

Here is the code of the method :

  method follow_link ?text ?text_regex ?url ?url_regex ?url_abs ?url_abs_regex
    ?name ?name_regex ?tag ?tag_regex ?n () =
    let args = ref [] in
    let add name f = function
      | None -> ()
      | Some p -> args := sv_of_string name :: f p :: !args
    add "text" sv_of_string text;
    add "text_regex" sv_of_string text_regex;
    add "url" sv_of_string url;
    add "url_regex" sv_of_string url_regex;
    add "url_abs" sv_of_string url_abs;
    add "url_abs_regex" sv_of_string url_abs_regex;
    add "name" sv_of_string name;
    add "name_regex" sv_of_string name_regex;
    add "tag" sv_of_string tag;
    add "tag_regex" sv_of_string tag_regex; 
    add "n" sv_of_int n; 
    call_method_void sv "follow_link" !args

As you can see, sv_of_string text_regex is the sv of a string but not the sv of a regexp.
To correct this bug, I changed the four lines :

    add "url_abs_regex" sv_of_string url_abs_regex;
    add "url_regex" sv_of_string url_regex;
    add "name_regex" sv_of_string name_regex;
    add "tag_regex" sv_of_string tag_regex; 


    add "url_abs_regex" eval url_abs_regex;
    add "url_regex" eval url_regex;
    add "name_regex" eval name_regex;
    add "tag_regex" eval tag_regex; 

eval returns the sv of the evaluated string, which hopefully is a regexp.

Other occurences of this bug may be present in this package.
