Subject: .bak files are being installed
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 697b
Hi, I'm noticing that on an install of Filter::Util::Call, several .bak files are also getting installed. That seems hardly desirable. On a side note, this breaks debian packaging, as 'dh_clean' tends to throw .bak files away, but your Makefile will still reference them; Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/perlfilter.pod Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/filter-util.pl Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Filter/exec.pm Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Filter/cpp.pm Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Filter/cpp.pm.bak Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Filter/sh.pm.bak Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Filter/sh.pm Installing /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Filter/exec.pm.bak

Thanks for the bug report. Installing the .bak files has been there for years. Surprised nobody else noticed before. Anyway, I've fixed the problem and upload 1.31 of the filters to CPAN. cheers Paul
