I get the following errors when instaling (Centos v4 / RHEL 4): # ./Build test t/00.load.........ok 1/1# Testing Perl6::Builtins v0.0.3 t/00.load.........ok t/caller..........ok t/pod-coverage....ok t/pod.............ok t/system..........ls: write error: Bad file descriptor t/system..........NOK 1 # Failed test 'successful system command' # in t/system.t at line 6.

I'm a bit confused. Does "PAY_NO_ATTENTION_TO_THIS" imply that I should ignore the test error, and force the install?

It's not a Linux-specific error ... I get substantially the same error on perl 5.14 built with Visual Studio 2008 on Windows (built on XP, currently running on 7).

Thanks for the feedback. This module is no longer under active maintenance. More importantly, it does not track the current behaviour of Perl 6 at all. If you're looking for a better API to system(), try one of these: IPC::Run IPC::System::Simple Running::Commentary If you're looking for a Perl 5 API similar to (a subset of) Perl 6's caller() behaviour, try: Perl6::Caller Hope this helps, Damian
