The dialog about optional features in XML::Atom pretends that these five modules are not hard requirements. XML::XPath LWP::UserAgent Digest::SHA1 DateTime XML::LibXML So I skipped them all. But when I ran the tests it turned out that any of the 5 missing leads to failing tests. Well, to be precice, I installed them in the order above and only after the fifth the tests succeeded. This was with 0.23 with various bleadperls. Please let me know if you need further info. To remedy the situation, I uploaded the following patch to CPAN as ANDK/patches/XML-Atom-0.23-ANDK-01.patch.gz diff -urp XML-Atom-0.23.orig/Makefile.PL XML-Atom-0.23-dwTvI8/Makefile.PL --- XML-Atom-0.23.orig/Makefile.PL 2006-08-16 07:40:47.000000000 +0200 +++ XML-Atom-0.23-dwTvI8/Makefile.PL 2006-11-22 09:05:32.000000000 +0100 @@ -15,6 +15,11 @@ include('ExtUtils::AutoInstall'); requires('MIME::Base64'); requires('URI'); requires('Class::Data::Inheritable'); +requires('XML::XPath'); +requires('LWP::UserAgent'); +requires('Digest::SHA1'); +requires('DateTime'); +requires('XML::LibXML'); features( 'Faster XML parsing with libxml' => [ Thanks,
