in thread Installing XML::Parser


Thanks for the suggestion. I did that, but it didn't give much additional info:

$ perl -w t/astress.t 1..27 ok 1 ok 2 ok 3 ok 4 ok 5 ok 6 ok 7 ok 8 ok 9 ok 10 ok 11 ok 12 ok 13 ok 14 ok 15 ok 16 ok 17 ok 18 not ok 19 not ok 20 ok 21 ok 22 ok 23 not ok 24 ok 25 ok 26 ok 27

And I found the .t file itself very hard to interpret: couldn't really tell what was being tested and what the expected values were -- didn't seem to be using a standard testing module. Does this help at all?

    Your right, it doesnt use any test modules, but outputs TAP directly. I cant provoke the same failures on my FC4 box, but the lines of t/astress.t you need to add some printf's around are

    1. test 19 -> line 108 - print out the value of $p->current_line - yours is not 17
    2. test 20 -> line 109 - print out the value of $p->current_column - yours is not 20
    3. test 24 -> line 230 - print out the values of $cmpstr and $pos - yours are not equal

    Of course none of this shows you the real problem, just the symptoms. You'll probably have to run the test file under the perl debugger so you can see more - though even that is made harder by the fact that there is some XS code to deal with to, which you cant trace into with the perl debugger.

    Perhaps the best you can hope for is that the differences are not important, as far as the problem you are trying to solve - perhaps their white space related.

      Thanks for your help,

      Here are the values for the three tests I'm failing:

      1. test 19 -> $p->current_line = 0
      2. test 20 -> $p->current_column = 0
      3. test 24 -> the values are definitely not equal (see below)
      $cmpstr: <blah> 2nd line in bar </blah> 3rd line in bar <!-- Isn't this a doozy --> ===================^ </bar> $pos: <blah> 2nd line in bar </blah> 3rd line in bar <!-- Isn't this a doozy --> ^ </bar>

      I opened up a bug report on CPAN, but I'll update here if/when I get somewhere with this. Thanks again!
