in reply to Buggy CPAN Module (Statistics::R)

Which version of R-interp are you using? It might be important.
Which perl are you using? ( update: perl versions are best described using 'perl -V')
Did you try a different perl (newer)?

I'm not suprised gmpassos won't debug something he can't reproduce :) (i'm just guessing thats the reason).

The bug report mentions trouble using alarm, and in perl 5.8.0, "safe signals" were introduced, and they have consequences (see "Deferred Signals (Safe Signals)" in perlipc).

update: My memory is vauge, but it has been a while (maybe a year) since I've seen gmpassos

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
** The third rule of perl club is a statement of fact: pod is sexy.

    R is version 2.1.1 :)

    P.S Do you think it might help to try an older Perl version if something sig. changed in 5.8 to do with this? The pm hasn't been updated for 12 months so maybe its deprecated?

      I'm confused. In the original ticket in RT, it says "perl 5.8.0, Linux kernel 2.4.27, glibc 2.3.2". Also, do you have a small program that can reproduce the problem?


      The only easy day was yesterday

        I did not write the original ticket (that linked to in my first post). It just describes the same problem that I am having with the module.
