in reply to ANSI escape sequences

Try some *ANSI* module from CPAN, e.g. Term::ANSIColor. Personally that's the way I choose whenever I have to use ANSI sequences. If that's giving you the same problems, than you do not have a problem with perl, but with your terminal. In fact back in the days of good ole' DOS I used to have an ANSI driver enabled, but nowadays afaik Windows console is not ANSI enabled and I don't even know if there are "plugins" or whatever that will make it such.

[Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
[Corion]: (this post on nntp.perl.org / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
[Corion]: Ah. The magic invocation is set PERL5OPT=-M-lib=. (equivalent of no lib '.';
