The PathTools that is on CPAN is broken on Perl 5.6, due to a Devel::PPPort problem with the XS implementation of parts of File::Spec, yielding an undefined symbol that's only caught by the dynamic linker when actually calling affected methods. (It's also not spotted by PathTools's own test suite.) This is causing some spurious failures in CPAN Testers, such as: The problem is fixed in blead (at commit 8316a7e5fe811053d160adb18b0f473d2f070a43). It would be good to get a fixed version released to CPAN. -zefram
