Help! I cannot get Contextual::Return to make.

Perl 5.8.0

#!uname -a
SunOS cofjora01d 5.9 Generic_117171-07 sun4us sparc FJSV,GPUZC-M

Any ideas?

    Perhaps your version of perl just can't cope with the syntax. Have you tried this on a newer version? 5.8.0 like any other x.0 release is already known to be problematic.

      I'm sure that would do the trick. However, getting the company to upgrade has been quite painfull. I've been trying to get them to do it for over a year with no success. :-(

    I can't get it to work with Makefile.PL either. I get pretty much the same errors. If I use the Build.PL, though, it seems to work:
    $ perl ./Build.PL Checking whether your kit is complete... Looks good Checking prerequisites... Looks good Deleting Build Removed previous script 'Build' Creating new 'Build' script for 'Contextual-Return' version 'v0.1.0' $ ./Build test lib/Contextual/Return.pm -> blib/lib/Contextual/Return.pm lib/Contextual/Return/Failure.pm -> blib/lib/Contextual/Return/Failure +.pm t/00.load...........ok 1/1# Testing Contextual::Return v0.1.0 t/00.load...........ok t/SCALAR............ok t/args..............ok t/context_tests.....ok t/fail..............ok t/fail_with.........ok t/failures..........ok t/fixed.............ok t/interp............ok t/lazy..............ok t/lvalue............ok t/nonvoid...........ok t/object............ok t/pod-coverage......ok t/pod...............ok t/scalar-to-list....ok t/simple............ok All tests successful. Files=17, Tests=184, 3 wallclock secs ( 1.54 cusr + 0.29 csys = 1.8 +3 CPU)
    Perhaps using the Module::Build alternative will work for you. If so, please file a bug report on the ExtUtils::MakeMaker install process at http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Contextual-Return
      I get the same problems with Build... edit: added readmore tags

    did you build all dependencies correctly? is Want (that needs XS) working properly?

    hth --stephan
      Yes, all dependencies were installed successfully, including Want.

    It builds and tests ok for me with perl 5.8.8, but I get the same errors when I build with perl 5.8.0.

    That doesn't mean that the module can't be successfully used on perl 5.8.0 - it's just that parts of the test suite fail on perl 5.8.0. - which merely proves that the test suite (as opposed to the module itself) is unusable on perl 5.8.0.

    If I was stuck with perl 5.8.0, I would probably just install it and see how it goes ... though there's no guarantee that the same approach is advisable for you :-)

    Cheers,
    Rob
