Subject: Nonono means yesyesyes for UNINST=1
Hi, This is actually an ExtUtils::Install bug, but it doesn't have its own distribution yet so I'm presuming it doesn't have a queue either. I've noticed that running the install() function with a true value for $nonono (which Module:: Build does for its 'fakeinstall' action) will still cause files to be removed if the UNINST=1 flag is given. This is counter to the docs and to expectations. I believe the problem is in this snippet here: if (defined $inc_uninstall) { inc_uninstall($sourcefile,$File::Find::dir,$verbose, $inc_uninstall ? 0 : 1); } which for some reason conditions $nonono for inc_uninstall() on $inc_uninstall. Couldn't it just pass through its own $nonono there? I'd try a patch but the current SVN copy is complaining about a missing Test/Builder/ Module.pm when I try to run its tests. -Ken

Now that ExtUtils::Install has it's own distro, can this ticket be moved to its queue? Randy.
fixed in 1.41_03 at least
