Subject: Option -print-search-dirs not available for all compilers
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 642b
Can you update Makefile.PL & Build.PL as follows: my $data = `$cc -print-search-dirs`; becomes my $data = `$cc -print-search-dirs 2>/dev/null`; This way when the option is invalid for a particular compiler used to build perl it will throw away the error messages (pages on pages of errors). Looking at check_for_stray_headers() it doesn't seem to care if $data is empty or undef. I've been troubleshooting why this module won't build on AIX for the last couple of days and the above issue wasted a lot of time tracking down that the error thrown here was meaningless. That my problems probably reside elsewhere. Curtis
