perl 5.12 BSD portability (CPAN test result)...printby perl-diddler (Hermit)
|on Mar 10, 2013 at 08:31 UTC||Need Help??|
perl-diddler has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am getting test reports in CPAN for my P module.
Spent some time removing most or all of the new features I could think of -- replacing switch/when things like that -- thinking maybe I could get it working with -- maybe back to 5.8...not sure...
But last time had fails on 5.12-5.16 all platforms.
This time, it's 1 platform that is giving me problems I'm clueless on.
In my code at 95+96, I have:
Is something broken on the BSD 5.12 platform? I'm guessing that the test harness is calling print, but "print" in class IO::File, I thought, was a CORE function? How could it not be there?
Maybe someone from BSD land on here -- was perl badly broken in 5.12?
Test case uses 'Test::More'....
Thanks -- I'm sure others have dealt with this type of stuff before, yes? ;-)
