5.16 vs Date::Manipby ChrisDennis (Sexton)
|on Jun 17, 2012 at 20:29 UTC||Need Help??|
ChrisDennis has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
A Perl script of mine has stopped working since Arch Linux upgraded itself to Perl 5.16.
The difference can be demonstrated with this one-liner:
$ perl -e 'use Date::Manip; print Date::Manip::ParseDateString("10:20")."\n";'
On 5.10 (and 5.14, but I don't have a 5.14 system to hand), this gives:
but with 5.16 I get:
Undefined subroutine &Date::Manip::ParseDateString called at -e line 1.
The system with Perl 5.16 has Date::Manip 6.32 installed.
Is this a bug or a feature in 5.16?
