leegold2 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I have Strawberry Perl 5.18 on WinXP. I do install WWW::Mechanize::Firefox with the cpan client. There are what seem like thousands of lines of debug info in the terminal window. I'm not sure how find the problem. The last few lines are:
Test Summary Report ------------------- t/10-plugin-repl-enter.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 3 Failed: 2) Failed tests: 2-3 Non-zero exit status: 2 t/16-plugin-repl-home.t (Wstat: 256 Tests: 2 Failed: 1) Failed test: 2 Non-zero exit status: 1 t/18-plugin-repl-util-help_url_for.t (Wstat: 768 Tests: 4 Failed: 3) Failed tests: 2-4 Non-zero exit status: 3 t/19-plugin-repl-util-doc_for.t (Wstat: 768 Tests: 7 Failed: 3) Failed tests: 2-3, 5 Non-zero exit status: 3 t/20-plugin-json.t (Wstat: 256 Tests: 2 Failed: 1) Failed test: 2 Non-zero exit status: 1 Files=14, Tests=42, 18 wallclock secs ( 0.27 usr + 0.14 sys = 0.41 C +PU) Result: FAIL Failed 5/14 test programs. 10/42 subtests failed. dmake.exe: Error code 255, while making 'test_dynamic' ZIGOROU/MozRepl-0.06.tar.gz C:\strawberry\c\bin\dmake.exe test -- NOT OK //hint// to see the cpan-testers results for installing this module, t +ry: reports ZIGOROU/MozRepl-0.06.tar.gz Running make install make test had returned bad status, won't install without force Stopping: 'install' failed for 'MozRepl'.

    I would 'cd' to the top level WWW::Mechanize::Firefox source directory and re-run those failing test scripts individually:
    perl -Mblib t/10-plugin-repl-enter.t perl -Mblib t/16-plugin-repl-home.t perl -Mblib t/18-plugin-repl-util-help_url_for.t perl -Mblib t/19-plugin-repl-util-doc_for.t perl -Mblib t/20-plugin-json.t
    If there's still too much info for the console to neatly accommodate, redirect the output to files, and then peruse those files.

    You can install the module anyway, if you wish. You may well find it's quite adequate for your purposes, despite the failing tests. (The choice is yours.)
    Should you wish to install it, just run dmake install from that top level source directory.

    These failures are not for WWW::Mechanize::Firefox but for MozRepl.

    I would look at the actual test output instead of the summary and investigate further from there.
