Subject: Parser breaks on 'ga' locale
Download (untitled) / with headers

I was CPAN testing this module and discovered a curious problem. When you run this on Windows with Perl 5.6.1, for all the non 'en' locales, I get failures. Putting diagnostics on, the first failure for 'ga' had the following first few lines: Entered = 2005-12-01 Déardaoin Parser = ($year, $month, $day, $dow_name) = $time_string =~ /(\d{4})\-([\d ]?\d)\-([\d ]?\d) (Dé\ Domhnaigh|Dé\ Sathairn|Dé\ Céadaoin|Déardaoin|Dé\ hAoine|Dé\ Luain|Dé\ Máirt|Máirt|Céad|Déar|\w+)/ dow_name = Déardaoin Note how the dow_name has changed from the originally entered string. This happens for 'pt' and 'de' as well. This is currently causing a block on testing for a number of distributions which depend on this distribution :( If you need more information, please let me know. Show quoted text
