There's 15 failed tests ("Failed 15/20 test programs."): I'll need to go through each to find the actual problems.

If all are simply quoting uses, then the solution is straightforward (if a little tedious to implement across the board). Let's see how that pans out before worrying about config modifications and the like.

I recall you specified a minimum Perl version of v5.6. I've checked https://perldoc.perl.org/5.6.0/functions/quotemeta and https://perldoc.perl.org/5.6.0/perlop; quotemeta, \Q and \E are all available in that version, so no issues there.

"If all else fails I will have to resort to prompting the user during installation. Any opinions on that style?"

As I said, let's wait and see if secondary options are necessary; however, my general "opinions on that style" are:

  • I don't, as a rule, like it. On a number of occasions, I've started what I expected to be a fairly long-running installation, gone off to do something else while it runs, then returned ten or so minutes later only to find that, two seconds after I walked away from the screen, it prompted: "Specify location of whatever [/usr/bin/whatever]?" or something similar.
  • There are cases where it simply can't be avoided.
  • I have (reluctantly) used it myself in production code.
  • Where it has been necessary, I have tried to indicate early on that user intervention will be required.
"Thanks for your time spent and valuable feedback. I am not in a hurry, please work on it in your own pace."

No worries. I am rather eager to see how this works.

I have, in fact, spent most of this week (at $work) modifying modules and repeatedly going through the make cycle, tweaking tests to reflect the changes. While I'm happy to do this, "All work and no play makes Ken a dull boy.", so I need a break. As I said this morning, I can probably look into this further over the weekend. [Current lockdown restrictions means that I'm not even allowed guests in my home, so I'm certainly free to do this work.]

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
