Dear monks

I am trying to install on a strawberry perl 5.22.3_64 the module Win32::Unicode Anyone an idea what is wrong? Which alternative do I have to this module?

    This appears to be a long-standing bug in the distribution.

    CPAN Tester results, an open bug ticket, and an example of the same (plus more) tests failing.

    The same failures appear to be happening across all versions of Perl on Windows platform.

      Stevieb, you give me a very sad info. I fell in love with this module to handle path and co in unicode using it on ActiveState Perl 5.16. But now I want o migrate to Strawberry Perl, and yes, no matter which Perl version I try it continues to fail. I could cry.

        Dont cry. Simply go ahead and install win32 unicode despite the failing test.

    As an alternative, I'd recommend checking out Win32::LongPath. It won't be a drop in replacement (i.e. existing code that uses Win32::Unicode will need more modifications than just changing use Win32::Unicode; to use Win32::LongPath;), but it should be able to provide similar functionality. Also, the author does give credit to Win32::Unicode's author.

      Thank you. This seems a very good alternative. I already changed almost all parts of my code that used Win32::Unicode, modification was quite easy, and at the moment I do not see any problem arising. Very happy.
