Subject: fix for Archive::Zip related test failures due to symlinks
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 962b
Many of the current CPAN test failures have this error text (links below): error: Could not extract /tmp/par4D_mq/blib/META.yml safely: /tmp is an existing symbolic link One simple fix is to ensure _unzip_to_tmpdir (or perhaps _unzip) uses a path with symlinks resolved. For example in _unzip_to_tmpdir: ... my $path = $tmpdir; $path = File::Spec->catdir($tmpdir, $args{subdir}) if defined $args{subdir}; ### add these two lines require Cwd; $path = Cwd::realpath($path); _unzip(dist => $dist, path => $path); ... Tested on macos 10.15. Let me know if you'd prefer a patch file, and whether it should be in _unzip_to_tmpdir or more localised within _unzip. Shawn. CPAN testers links:
