Thanks very much for that. Alas, when I run it on my machine I get the same problem. My output is:
1..13 ok 1 - user 1 added ok 2 - user 2 added ok 3 - user 3 added ok 4 - user 4 added ok 5 - user 5 added ok 6 - user 6 added ok 7 - password for user3 changed ok 8 - user 1 still valid ok 9 - user 2 still valid ok 10 - user 3 still valid not ok 11 - user 4 still valid # Failed test ( at line 33) ok 12 - user 5 still valid ok 13 - user 6 still valid # Looks like you failed 1 tests of 13.
Also, when I comment out your last line and then examine the password file itself I find
user1:htcxz2m4/W7uI user2:htAJmEn5bZEr2 user3:htw0q0ujGkzis:user4:htp108GVoN87g user5:htntqB2/z6ld6 user6:htF9EduYYp1o6
... which is the same prob I got before.

Perhaps it's a version problem. I have Apache::Htpasswd v 1.5 and Test::More v 0.33. Also, I don't have method diag, which I'm substituting with die - this in itself wouldn't account for why it's not working for me, but might point to the difficulty. Except, I am guessing diag is a Test::More method?

insta-update..Aha! It *was* a version problem. I installed v 1.5.5 and now get the right result from your script... and I doubt not, also from the script that was giving me trouble...

insta-update 2Yes! It works now. Thanks very much - I'm most grateful.

Test::More is your friend (was Strange behaviour in Apache::Htpasswd::htpasswd())

    This is yet another example of why I love Test::More, Test::Builder and friends so much.

    It is so much simpler to track down problems like this once you have a test script that just sits their and will succeed/fail without human intervention.

    If you've not done it already go read Test::Tutorial, The Joy of Test and What goes in a test suite?.

    Once you have become test infected you'll never turn back :-)
