Subject:    Extended Graphics State dash() method not working

PDF::API2 v2.022 Perl 5.16.3 Windows 7 Severity: Important

In API2/Resource/ExtGState.pm, the dash() method appears to have a bug. It loads the dash pattern into $self->{ML}, which is the same internal setting as used by meterlimit()/miterlimit(). I suspect that the author copy and pasted the previous method's code (meterlimit()) and neglected to change the internal name. I have not yet debugged this, or even proved it broken, but it appears that it would break the meterlimit()/miterlimit() method by overwriting its data.
