Subject: Patch for the hack with __FILE__ in
Date: Thu, 26 Apr 2007 22:10:36 +0200
To: bug-Curses-UI [...]
From: fagga <fagga [...]>
Hello, I had problems packaging a Curses::UI application into a PAR package, because __FILE__ does resolves different depending on being inside a PAR package or not. I reported this as a bug in PAR and got, ironically, great help to create a patch for Curses::UI::Language. It now uses the __PACKAGE__ literal instead of __FILE__ and works quite well for me. I added the few diff lines to the end.
