Hello, I hope you're still maintaining "prove" or you know at least who is maintaining it currently. If I use prove -b t/12-config.t the Test::Harness::Switches contains the blib directories. But it does not anymore contain the "-w" switch that is there per default. This is misleading: prove succeeds w/o warning wheres MakeMaker generated files (using Test::Harness directly) send bunches of warnings (if the code triggers warnings). I think it can be fixed easily: - $Test::Harness::Switches = join( " ", @switches ); + $Test::Harness::Switches = join( " ", $Test::Harness::Switches, @switches ); Best regards from Dresden Viele Grüße aus Dresden Heiko Schlittermann -- ---------------------------- internet & unix support - Heiko Schlittermann HS12-RIPE ----------------------------------------- gnupg encrypted messages are welcome - key ID: 48D0359B --------------- gnupg fingerprint: 3061 CFBF 2D88 F034 E8D2 7E92 EE4E AC98 48D0 359B -

From Test::Harness 3.00 onwards you may explicitly pass -w to prove to enable warnings. Warnings are turned off by default. The -w flag is orthogonal to -b.
