In bug 18459, todd_rinaldo supplied the patch below to be applied to lib\Net\Daemon just prior to doing "Perl Makefile.PL". One Windows XP, ActiveState Perl 5.8.8, the ithread test now passes. However, it now bombs on a different test. Namely, threadm.t, reported in bug report 26952. No one has replied. Without Net::Daemon, DBI will not install. I need DBI, so I need this fixed.

Oh, my! URL http://cpantesters.perl.org/show/Net-Daemon.html message 111280 shows that Net::Daemon has not worked on Windows since November 2003, with 5.6.1. So ... how is it that people on Windows have been working around this. Does no one on Windows use Net::Daemon or the DBI? Thanks

I think you'd have a less one-sided conversation if you sent emails to dbi-users@perl.org. The rt system just sends emails to the current maintainers and it's clear that they don't have much time to invest in Net::Daemon etc at the moment. You have the interest and energy at the moment, so you're very welcome to become a co- maintainer. You'd be able to fix bugs and make releases yourself! Just send me your PAUSE id and auth.perl.org id. Thanks!

Thanks for the tip on where to get help. I found perl.dbi.users. I actually do not know the DBI all that well as I just today got done reading the (your) DBI book. My thanks for writing the book, by the way. Unfortunately I do not know network programming, RPC, or threads, which is what I see as the Net::Daemon problem areas. I am not a CPAN author and I am not sure what PAUSE is, so I do not have such IDs, either. On the other hand, I am fairly familiar with the Test::Harness and most of its associated modules, and I do have CPAN module debugging experience with modules I originally knew nothing about. I can especially sprinkle print statements about and such, and I can dig as far as I can, however far that might be. I will switch from this forum and go to perl.dbi.users and ask for suggestions wherein I might help in the debugging process. Thanks

I should mention that the ActiveState Perl Package Manager ppm will install DBI just fine. It is actually the modules DBD::Proxy RPC::PlServer, and DBI::ProxyServer that are dependent upon Net::Daemon. I tried the modules out because they are at the end of Chapter 8 (the last chapter) of the "Programming the Perl DBI" book. For most people they may not be needed, so no one should be dissuaded from using the DBI because of this. I may not ever need them myself.

Best not to use perl.dbi.users - messages posted there do not get sent to the dbi-users@perl.org mailing lists, so they only get read by a few other people - and not by me. You can read via perl.dbi.users, but email to dbi-users@perl.org to send messages. Tim. On Thu, May 10, 2007 at 01:41:04PM -0400, Malcolm Nooning via RT wrote: Show quoted text

Okay, well, it may all be moot. I may have a good patch for it. I am in communication with the author of Net::Daemon, Jochen Wiedmann. I sent him the patch. If he approves it then that will be that. At that time I will post it as the answer to several of the open Net::Daemon tickets so that they may be closed. I am attaching the patch here as a sneak preview patch file made on a Windows XP command line, using Show quoted text

The patch is only tentative! I also had to apply the todd.e.rinaldo given patch, as given in ticket 18459.
