This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i386-solaris Test-WWW-Mechanize-1.12 SunOS yenfire 5.10 Generic_125101-04 i86pc i386 i86pc The module tests currently spawn a server (based on HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI) which is killed when a __DIE__ signal is received, normally only when the invoking perl dies. However, as perlvar makes clear, the __DIE__ signal is received when eval blocks die as well. The new version (1.22) of WWW::Mechanize now calles HTTP::Message::decoded_content which calls Encode.pm which has a eval block that require's Encode::ConfigLocal which is usually not present, so the eval dies and the HTTP server is killed as soon as the $mech object tries to do a 'get'. It's simple to use a system variable, $^S to find out if the __DIE__ signal is being called for an eval so we ignore that case with the patch attached. There appear to be other bugs in the tests when used with WWW::Mechanize 1.22 but those will be covered in another report.

er, apologies for over-terse subject, was meant to be "fix tests for case that eval block failure triggers test server exit" On Tue Apr 24 10:05:24 2007, mark@blackmans.org wrote: Show quoted text

Thank you so much for this. I'm putting out 1.14 today.
