in reply to Help needed for Test::Harness module!!!
Since the difference between running the tests individually and running them via test.pl seems to be the environment variable setup, etc., I would guess the problem probably has something to do with that. However, without seeing some code, it's really hard to tell... could you post some actual code from test.pl, and a test that is failing to execute?
XML::Simpler does not require XML::Parser or a SAX parser.
It does require File::Slurp.
