Subject: Working Path that includes :: breaks @INC on Unix
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.4k
On a *nix system (RedHat 9 specifically), if the cwd contains an element with a double-colon, @INC gets messed up. t/01_use.............NOK 2 # Failed test (t/01_use.t at line 36) # Tried to use 'PISG::DCH'. # Error: Can't locate PISG/DCH.pm in @INC (@INC contains: inc /home/staff/jfitzgibbon/perl/PISG DCH/blib/lib DCH/blib/arch /home/staff/jfitzgibbon/myperl/lib/perl5 /home/staff/jfitzgibbon/myperl/lib/perl5/site_perl /opt/perl5/lib/5.8.7/i686-linux /opt/perl5/lib/5.8.7 /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/i686-linux /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.7 /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.6/i686-linux /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.6 /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl .) at (eval 10) line 2. # BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at t/01_use.t line 36. Note how even though the path includes the element PISG::DCH, @INC splits on the double colon, using the following two directories: /home/staff/jfitzgibbon/perl/PISG DCH/blib/lib instead of the correct directory /home/staff/jfitzgibbon/perl/PISG::DCH/blib/lib Even if this isn't a bug, but what one gets for being ignorant of platform-specific issues, it should probably be be caught and explained to the user when 'Build.PL' is executed, not uncermoniously later on when tests are run. The attached file contains two directories 'Bro::ken' and 'Work-ing'. Both contain the exact same module named 'MB::Test'. Running 'perl Build.PL' followed by './Build test' will illustrate the problem.

This is definitely a bug, but I'm not sure where yet. Perhaps in Test::Harness, but I have no confirmation of that (except that I can't find it in M::B or perl itself). It's probably happening because ":" is the path separator character on Unix. -Ken

I just tried using a Makefile.PL and it fails in the same way. I'll re-submit this to Andy as a Test::Harness bug - you can feel free to close #13196. Thanks
