in reply to Testing module on Windows

See why no testing under Windows? and its follow-ups for a recent discussion on the CPAN-Testers mailing list.

[In that particular case, a test was obtaining the date using the external date command. That works fine on *nix, but on windows it expects user input. The result was a hanging test on Windows and no report was generated.]

[choroba]: how many event types are there?
[Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
[Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
[Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
[Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: I hope you know all too well that passing around "fancy" datastructures is a recipe for disaster :-)
[robby_dobby]: As in, it's-too-fancy- that-it-will-be- messy-to-handle
[choroba]: bit vectors as keys?
[robby_dobby]: Hmm, I keep falling asleep at my desk, while maintaining an active appearance. Am I getting old?
[robby_dobby]: Every time I fall asleep, there's a small guy in the dreams, shouting "Whoo!" and it jolts me awake. :/
