in thread Investigating Devel::Pragma's broken install on Cygwin, need help to fix it. ExtUtils::Depends possibly guilty??

It's really taking ages because of my CPAN problem: every 5 modules or so it stops; and i usually only realize a while later.
As a consequence, i have reinstalled about half the modules. Will finish tomorrow.

By the way, how did you obtain this list of dependencies?

    I researched each prerequisite myself because I was having problems with the install on my Linux system. I'll be putting it on CPAN soon...

      We're getting somewhere !
      * EDIT: In fact we broke something (see later)... but it might help us understand the issue, as it has something to do with missing files and Cygwin.
      Devel::Pragma is now "make"ing, with a different bug. After running the Checksum (which was ok), it says :

      Running make for C/CH/CHOCOLATE/Devel-Pragma-0.54.tar.gz Checksum for /cygdrive/c/Dropbox/.cpan/sources/authors/id/C/CH/CHOCOLA +TE/Devel-Pragma-0.54.tar.gz ok 1 [main] perl 532 child_info_fork::abort: C:\cygwin\lib\perl5\5. +14\i686-cygwin-threads-64int\auto\Storable\Storable.dll: Loaded to di +fferent address: parent(0x62730000) != child(0xF40000) 2 [main] perl 952 child_info_fork::abort: C:\cygwin\lib\perl5\5. +14\i686-cygwin-threads-64int\auto\Storable\Storable.dll: Loaded to di +fferent address: parent(0x62730000) != child(0xF40000) 2 [main] perl 5212 child_info_fork::abort: C:\cygwin\lib\perl5\5 +.14\i686-cygwin-threads-64int\auto\Storable\Storable.dll: Loaded to d +ifferent address: parent(0x62730000) != child(0xF40000) 1 [main] perl 4156 child_info_fork::abort: C:\cygwin\lib\perl5\5 +.14\i686-cygwin-threads-64int\auto\Storable\Storable.dll: Loaded to d +ifferent address: parent(0x62730000) != child(0xF40000)
      There are now more than 200 similar lines. And the time between two of these lines must be taking longer and longer, as now it takes more than 5 minutes; and i certainly didn't wait for a total of 1000 minutes.

      Additional info: Storable said, during its installation

      Then i tried to download the Storable tar.gz archive, and did this:

      I can confirm that these files are not in the tar.gz archive.

      Then i tried this (same without --xs) :

      We have definitly broken something: Storable never gave me this problem in the past.
      That is extremely annoying: i cannot install any module at all until Storable is fixed.

      I am definitely sure that i am running a Windows XP 32 bit, how can Storable suddenly think the opposite?

      And what is the real problem: the fact that Storable doesn't find some files:

      Storable.bs Storable.c Storable.o
      Or the fact that it says something about my 64bit-ness?
      And is it hidden by the fact that it didn't run the t/compat01.t test? (skipped: Test only works for 32 bit little-ending machines)

      ...more research...

      I found this, it could be worth a try:
      http://perldoc.perl.org/perlcygwin.html
      says

      Configure-time Options for Perl on Cygwin The INSTALL document describes several Configure-time options. Some of + these will work with Cygwin, others are not yet possible. Also, some + of these are experimental. You can either select an option when Conf +igure prompts you or you can define (undefine) symbols on the command + line. \[...\] -Uuse64bitint By default Perl uses 64 bit integers. If you want to use smaller 32 bi +t integers, define this symbol. -Duselargefiles Cygwin uses 64-bit integers for internal size and position calculation +s, this will be correctly detected and defined by Configure.

      Here is my current Perl configuration:

      The interesting bit for me is use64bitint=define.
      AS a reminder, perl's documentation says:

      -Uuse64bitint By default Perl uses 64 bit integers. If you want to use smaller 32 bi +t integers, define this symbol.
      Which would mean that i'm using this at the moment: i am using 32 bit integers, rather than 64bit ones.
      But Storable doesn't seem to see this, as it says:
      You appear to have a perl configured to use 64 bit integers in its sca +lar variables. If you have existing data written with an earlier version +of Storable which this version of Storable refuses to load with a Byte order is not compatible error, then please read the section "64 bit data in perl 5.6.0 and 5.6 +.1" in the Storable documentation for instructions on how to read your dat +a.
      So i don't really know what to do with this. I seem to be configured correctly... I guess i could always try to change the configuration and see what happens. There's only 4 possible combinations, with there two configuration parameters.

      I found Perl::Configure. I could try to use it tomorrow...unless if someone has an other idea - maybe something to related to these missing files?

      I'm too tired now, and sleeping will give a chance to people to tell me: "don't do this, you'll break everything!" Or to come up with ideas.

      But i won't let go: i want Method::Signatures's extra sweet sugar.

        Two things: The Storable warning is useless---ignore it. For CPAN, you want the current development version---it handles ExtUtils::MakeMaker better than the stable version. Try it... you'll see what I mean.
