Subject: BSD::Process dependency is problematic
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 423b
BSD::Process does not compile for newer FreeBSD versions (11 and newer) and fails tests with older FreeBSD versions or a reasonably recent perl. See - http://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=BSD-Process+0.07 - https://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Name=BSD-Process I wonder whether there's a reason to use BSD::Process at all --- maybe all necessary information is already available in Proc::ProcessTable also on bsd systems?

sysutils/p5-BSD-Process builds with out issue. Unfortunately there is a patch that has not been committed upstream for it. https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122947 As to Proc::ProcessTable, unfortunately there are some fields that on BSD systems it does not properly return. If you take a look at where $bproc is used in the module, those are the fields with issues. If you know of any work arounds thought, it would be appreciated. :)

Howdy! Just uploaded 0.3.0 which completely removes it as a dependency. Spent some time doing some research. Also worth nothing that some procs will return improper size values till a bug in Proc::ProcessTable is fixed. https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=128189 has more info on that. Also there is a patch for the portstree submitted in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=234688 .
