in reply to How do I install activestate patch=22552

This is an interesting question. I am in the same boat, running 5.8.3 build 809 on XP Pro.

All I have been able to find is the following

If you are applying these patches, you'll need to make sure you have GNU patch v2.5 or later and the latest release against which the diffs are made. Some files in the perl distribution have carriage-ret +urns by design. You'll need to remove them before you you can apply the patches. % find -name \* -print | xargs perl -pi -e 's/\r$//' % patch -p1 -N < diffs/3479 % patch -p1 -N < diffs/3480 [..etc..]

in the

Readme in patch dir

Let us know if you find anything more.

Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
