Subject: t/doc.t failure in non-English locales with Perl 5.22
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 953b
t/doc.t started to fail in at least the fr_FR.UTF-8 locale with Perl 5.22: # Failed test 'POSIX 1' # at t/doc.t line 66. # got: 'POSIXish: mardi, d�cembre 12, 1995' # expected: 'POSIXish: mardi, décembre 12, 1995' # Looks like you failed 1 test of 26. The difference is that 'got' has an é in latin1 encoding while 'expected' has it in utf8. This seems to be because of a bug fix in POSIX::strftime() in Perl 5.21.1, which made it set the UTF8 flag in UTF-8 locales when the return value has non-ASCII characters. http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commit/9717af6d049902fc887c412facb2d15e785ef1a4 I18N::Langinfo has a similar bug, so the results are now no longer equal. I've filed https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=127288 about this, so it might get fixed in a future Perl release. This is also https://bugs.debian.org/811104 and we'll be working around it by setting LC_ALL=C when running the test suite.
