Subject: Test-WWW-Mechanize test failures on win32
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.9k
Using perl 5.8.8 on WinXP XP2 I can build v1.05_02, and all tests pass ok. If I try to build either v1.06 or v1.08, many tests fail. I'm sure this is due to the change to HTTP-Server-Simple in v1.06 Below is the list of tests that fail. When each test file dies, I'm shown a pop-up window, saying the program 'needs to close'. (this is standard windows behaviour when a program unexpectedly dies / segfaults) Failed Test Stat Wstat Total Fail Failed List of Failed ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- t/content_contains.t 5 1280 5 8 160.00% 2-5 t/content_lacks.t 5 1280 5 8 160.00% 2-5 t/follow_link_ok.t 5 1280 6 10 166.67% 2-6 t/get_ok.t 5 1280 11 20 181.82% 2-11 t/has_tag.t 5 1280 7 12 171.43% 2-7 t/link_content.t 5 1280 9 16 177.78% 2-9 t/link_status.t 5 1280 8 14 175.00% 2-8 t/links_ok.t 5 1280 8 14 175.00% 2-8 t/page_links_content.t 5 1280 9 16 177.78% 2-9 t/page_links_ok.t 5 1280 5 8 160.00% 2-5 t/stuff_inputs.t 5 1280 3 4 133.33% 2-3 2 tests skipped. Failed 11/16 test scripts, 31.25% okay. 65/100 subtests failed, 35.00% okay. dmake: Error code 133, while making 'test_dynamic' If I simply remove the -T switch from the sh-bang line of each file that fails, I then get all tests passing OK. You will see in the list above, there are several files that don't die/fail. Though these have the -T switch, they don't use HTTP-Server-Simple, and so run ok. For reference, if I run one of the test files (v1.08) on it's own, with the -T switch, here's the output: Show quoted text
>perl -Mblib -T t\content_contains.t
Insecure dependency in require while running with -T switch at t\content_contains.t line 5. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at t\content_contains.t line 5. Hope this is helpful. Carl

This looks like a potential bug/conflict with taint and fork on Win32. On my VanillaPerl 5.8.8 (WinXP SP2), this will cause the same crash: Show quoted text
> perl -Te "fork"
Fixed.
