in reply to upgrade of B::C failure

From looking at the file STATUS, I get the impression that - depending on Perl version - not all test are expected to work...

    It won't install if the tests fail (unless I force it). Also, as part of a global upgrade, that terminates it since I have halt_on_failure set. I would feel uncomfortable forcing an installation while there are test errors.
      I would feel uncomfortable forcing an installation while there are test errors.

      Why? What is a few test failures when THIS CODE IS HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.?

        Perhaps I am unaware of a way to exclude specific modules from upgrading when running upgrade from the interactive cpan command line. If there is a way to do this, let me know. Otherwise, unless I set halt_on_failure to no (which allows the global upgrade to continue even if some module upgrades fail), then I can't complete the global upgrade. Setting halt_on_failure to no means when I do an install, failed dependencies will not halt the install, which is not what I want to happen.

        Not sure what happened. My last post didn't show up (an empty slot for it did though - which is kind of strange). So, I will repeat my comments.

        Unless there is some way of excluding modules from ugrading when executing the upgrade command, I can't just ignore the B::C problem. I have set halt_on_failure so any installs I make don't continue if a dependent module fails to build. So, I can't complete the upgrade until I figure out how to get past the B::C upgrade problem

    I should have mentioned that I am running perl 5.8.8. According to the STATUS file you link to (if I am reading it correctly), there should be 3 tests skipped, but no failures.
