I think there is a problem with the latest version of Module::Install included with Image::Info 1.19 - I'm unable to generate the Makefile: ---------- $ perl Makefile.PL String found where operator expected at Makefile.PL line 89, near "name 'Image-Info'" (Do you need to predeclare name?)

of Module::Install, I'm able to generate it. ---------- $ diff -u Image-Info-1.19-orig/inc/Module/ Image-Info-1.19/inc/Module/ --- Image-Info-1.19-orig/inc/Module/ 2006-03-05 09:15:08.000000000 +0000 +++ Image-Info-1.19/inc/Module/ 2006-03-06 19:18:22.000000000 +0000 @@ -35,6 +35,8 @@ use File::Path (); use FindBin; +@inc::Module::Install::ISA = 'Module::Install'; + sub autoload { my $self = shift; my $who = $self->_caller; ---------- Best wishes, Tels

Appears to be working correctly. I have just replaced Image-Info 1.19 inc subdirectory by the one shipped with Module-Install 0.59 and I was able to execute the following commands without any problems: perl Makefile.PL make make test /jpo PS - The lib/Module/Install.pod has several lines "\r\n" terminated (check lines 650 to 668)
Fixed long term too now, and added extra documentation to stop it happening again.
