Subject: Set path in two test files correctly for use in Perl 5 core distribution
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 874b
One of the major changes introduced in perl-5.28 in 2018 was a security fix which caused directory . to no longer be automatically included in @INC. Prior to that production release, we had to make certain workarounds in an important component of the Perl 5 testing infrastructure, t/TEST, to accommodate three CPAN distributions which are shipped with the Perl 5 core distribution. The Filter distribution was one of those three. We would like to be able to remove the workaround from t/TEST. To that end, I have submitted pull request which includes revisions to the BEGIN block in two files and which I have tested successfully both in core and in a git checkout. If these changes are satisfactory, we would appreciate a new CPAN release of Filter so that we can then synch it into Perl 5 blead. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
