Go find something else that uses LibXML e.g. a test suite of some kind to determine if the library itself is running properly.
A good thought. I went ahead and compiled this
simple program, which makes use of the libxml2 library. It compiled and ran just fine.
you're going to have to break-out of the padded cell of prove and run subtests individually to get to error-messages that are right now being suppressed.
Just so I know you aren't talking about something else - isn't that what I did when I responded to tye
's suggestion ("perl -Mblib t/02parse.t")? I'm still digesting that output.
