karlgoethebier has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, i tried to install IO::All using perlbrew and cpanm.

It fails. Here is some information about what i did a.s.o...

Karls-Mac-mini:~ karl$ cpanm -V cpanm (App::cpanminus) version 1.5019 Karls-Mac-mini:~ karl$ perlbrew list * perl-5.16.2 Karls-Mac-mini:~ karl$ which perl /Users/Karl/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.16.2/bin/perl Karls-Mac-mini:~ karl$ cpanm MLDBM MLDBM is up to date. (2.04)

cpanm output about the failed tests:

t/assert2.t .......... Dubious, test returned 2 (wstat 512, 0x200) Failed 2/4 subtests


use lib 't', 'lib'; use strict; use warnings; use Test::More tests => 4; use IO::All; use IO_All_Test; ok(io('t/output/xxx/yyy/zzz.db')->dbm->assert->{foo} = "bar"); ok(-f 't/output/xxx/yyy/zzz.db' or -f 't/output/xxx/yyy/zzz.db.dir'); SKIP: { skip "requires MLDBM", 2 unless eval { require MLDBM; 1}; ok(io('t/output/xxx/yyy/zzz2.db')->assert->mldbm->{foo} = ["bar"]) +; ok(-f 't/output/xxx/yyy/zzz2.db' or -f 't/output/xxx/yyy/zzz.db.di +r'); }

How can i fix this without --force?

Thank you very much for help and best regards, Karl

    I haven't used cpanm, but there must be a way to turn on VERBOSE for a more detailed error message. When I have issues with module builds, I will cd to the build directory and run  make test TEST_VERBOSE=1' . If there are a lot of test in the t directory, I might even debug the single test.  perl -Mblib -d t/sometest.t Some tests will fail and if I determine that is not an issue in my env I will force an install. I often do this with DBD::Oracle. Not a direct answer, just thought I'd give you some debugging options.

      ...i bet a sixpack that i will be punished for posting this:

      I think this doesn't help. Thank you and regards, Karl

    :) I usually ask the author (report bug upstream)

    Try cpan, I encountered modules that failed to install with cpanm but succeeded with cpan.

      "Try cpan..."

      ...i just had the same idea. It fails too.

      Update:...there are often to much presuppositions in my posts ;-)

      Perhaps the better question should have been: "...does it fail because i'm using cpanm...?"

      Thank you and best regards, Karl
