Sorry, can't manage that yet ... An ugly work-around is described at <http://www.perlmonks.org/? node_id=586914>. Best regards, Niall O'Reilly University College Dublin IT Services PGP key ID: AE995ED9 (see www.pgp.net) Fingerprint: 23DC C6DE 8874 2432 2BE0 3905 7987 E48D AE99 5ED9

Thanks for the report. I wonder if this could be a locale issue? That happens every third Tuesday on RH systems. Try setting your "LC_ALL" environment variable to "C" and see whether that makes a difference. -Ken

Sure enough! Thanks for the prompt and useful response. It's probably worth adding a sentence to both INSTALL and README files, something like the following. On certain platforms, it is necessary to set up the locale for Perl before creating and running the Build script. Setting your "LC_ALL" environment variable to "C" may be what's needed. Thanks again.

This is "notabug", but we'll make it a TODO for the documentation.
