    The matrix shows a majority of failures on MSWin32 (and no passes at all on cygwin). There is also a bug report which includes a comment by Wes Malone with what appears to be the same problem as you have.

    Can anybody help?

    What is the output of perl -V ?

    On Windows 7, with Strawberry Perls 5.26.0 (MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-64int), 5.26.0 (MSWin32-x64-multi-thread) and 5.32.0 (MSWin32-x64-multi-thread) the module is building, testing and installing fine for me.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    PS: you could install the module by running cpan -fi IO::Async::Loop if you're not worried about the failing tests.

      An additional positive effect of force-install (cpan -f) is that it will force-recompile XS-dependent modules and bring them up-to-date with current perl and system libraries unsuspectingly upgraded. If all else fails, it is worth force-installing all cpan modules. I don't know how to do that in Windows.

      The output of perl -V is as follows:

Re: Unable to install module IO::Async::Loop on windows 10 strawberry Perl
by Anonymous Monk on Jun 29, 2021 at 01:28 UTC
    Your issue is caused by outdated Socket.pm. Update it by running cpan Socket or cpanm Socket

      Add the force-reinstall (-f) flag to do it unconditionally.

      I tried upgrading Socket by cpan> install Socket command. It did upgrade Socket sorry I forgot to capture console output. But invain, the required module is not installed.

        I can confirm, that, using "fresh/clean" Strawberry Perl 5.28.0.1 -- i.e. your version -- the installation of IO::Async fails. That's not the case with Strawberry Perl 5.28.2.1 though, where IO::Async installs OK.

        To follow AM's advice, upgrading Socket issuing cpanm Socket under 5.28.0.1 did fix the issue.

        I see, however, that

        t\70future-io.t .............. skipped: Future::IO is not available

        in my case, but not in yours. How come this distribution was installed at your side? It's not required for IO::Async (nor Future, etc.) and its pod says it can be problematic with Win32. I'd suggest to uninstall it, or at least to backup/rename ImplBase.pm, to allow "clean" (i.e. unenforced) IO::Async installation.

      Thanks it did the trick.

    Hi,

    I tried to install the same module. I'm on Windows 10 too. Perl 5.32.1:

    This is perl 5, version 32, subversion 1 (v5.32.1) built for MSWin32-x +64-multi-thread Copyright 1987-2021, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License + or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source ki +t. Complete documentation for Perl, including FAQ lists, should be found +on this system using "man perl" or "perldoc perl". If you have access to + the Internet, point your browser at http://www.perl.org/, the Perl Home Pa +ge.

    I tried to install the module, but looks like it was installed earlier may be as a pre req for another module.

    >cpanm IO::Async::Loop IO::Async::Loop is up to date. (0.78)

    May be this is an issue with a particular version of Perl.

      May be this is an issue with a particular version of Perl

      It could also be that IO::Async::Loop was force-installed on your machine ( eg by running cpan -fi IO::Async::Loop ).
      When force is used the module will be installed even if the tests fail.

      If I wanted to install this module, using force is precisely what I would do if those tests failed.
      However, on my Strawberry Perl-5.32.0, use of force was not necessary.

      Cheers,
      Rob

        Hi,

        No, I never had to use the force option to install modules till date (thankfully)...mostly it's been installing missing modules and then all goes well. Strawberry Perl is indeed a Godsend in that regard.
