Hi In Debian we have on buildd with sbuild no /dev/tty in the build-environment. Trying to build IO-Prompt in such an environment, fails the tests: # Failed test 'Output to /dev/tty' # at t/01.dependencies.t line 4. # Failed test 'Input from /dev/tty' # at t/01.dependencies.t line 5. # Looks like you failed 2 tests of 2. t/01.dependencies.t .. Trying to experiment with IO:Pty and adding the following patch: ---(patch)--------------------------------------------- +--- a/t/01.dependencies.t ++++ b/t/01.dependencies.t +@@ -1,5 +1,8 @@ + use Test::More tests => 2; ++use IO::Pty; + +-# Depends on hardcoded /dev/tty access +-ok( open(my $OUT, ">/dev/tty"), "Output to /dev/tty"); +-ok( open(my $IN, "</dev/tty"), "Input from /dev/tty"); ++$pty = new IO::Pty; ++$tty = $pty->ttyname(); ++ ++ok( open(my $OUT, ">$tty"), "Output to $tty"); ++ok( open(my $IN, "<$tty"), "Input from $tty"); ------------------------------------------------------- now IO-Prompt builds, however there is still: t/01.dependencies.t .. ok Too late to run CHECK block at /build/salvi-libio-prompt-perl_0.997-1-amd64-YbnibD/libio-prompt-perl-0.997-1/blib/lib/IO/ line 319. many thanks in advance considering looking into this, Bests Salvatore
