in reply to Creating CPAN distribution on Win32 with Module::Build

There is a fixed bug for Module::Build.

There is no release yet it seems (I'd consider that a very high priority given the effect it has on all Windows developers, and the difficulty of figuring out what's the cause of the problem, let alone how to fix it).

But if you apply this change int he meantime things might work (haven't tested it, I hacked it in a different way).

    There is no release yet...

    There is no official release yet. A development version is available:

    cpan> install EWILHELM/Module-Build-0.30_02.tar.gz

    0.30_02 is a release candidate so the next official release with this bug fix should be out very soon.

[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
[Corion]: choroba: Hmm - no, I keep the snippets inline, but as my framework also has support for capturing output etc., maybe I should do the same...
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, that approach is sane, and it heals the fragility of Pod parsers in a nice way while still syntax-checking stuff
[choroba]: Unfortunately, none of it is online
[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
