Subject: Missing prerequisite for ExtUtils::MakeMaker
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 664b
Hello, I experience some problem installing your module XML::Writer (0.600) on an older Perl (5.6.1) on a Linux box. I found out that you are using a feature in ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which was not present in the version shippen with Perl 5.6.1 (5.4302, according to Module::Corelist). The feature NO_META was not introduced until version 6.10_03 of ExtUtils::MakeMaker according to the Changes file (see below): 6.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359) I have attached a patch to your Makefile.PL, or you can just add the prerequisite by hand. jonasbn

I tested against a version without NO_META support and it produces the diagnostic: 'NO_META' is not a known MakeMaker parameter name. However, the Makefile is still generated and builds as expected. I'm going to close this as INVALID. (I found another bug during testing, an unskipped test that breaks older perls - that might have been the problem.)
Just a diagnostic in earlier versions, doesn't break installation.
