Using Perl v5.10.1, I run perl MakeFile.PL, and it warns that the parent 0 is not found. Then, when I do make test, it fails many test because it cannot locate parent.sm in many of the files. What can be the problem and what can I do to remedy it? Thank you very much for your time and help. Have a nice day. -Josh Magana

Hi Josh, some notes: 1. You need to install the "parent" Perl module from CPAN or your OS/distribution's package repositories. This is CPAN basics: * http://perl-begin.org/topics/cpan/ * https://metacpan.org/release/parent 2. perl-5.10.1 is old, buggy, unmaintained and unloved. You really should use a more recent perl because there's already 5.22.0. See http://perlbrew.pl/ . XML-LibXML should mostly work fine there, but you really should not be using it in general. 3. This is not really a bug because you've done something wrong and got the wrong behaviour. Since you appear to be a beginner, I suggest that you consult an Internet forum with the problems that you are running into, rather than reporting them as bugs. See http://perl-begin.org/ for some recommendations for such suitable forums. === I'm resolving this bug as "rejected".
