>From what I've managed to trace in the test tick.t, it +appears+ that
this code in Test::Builder v0.17 is a source of the problem: if( defined $name ) { $name =~ s|#|\\#|g; # # in a name can confuse Test::Harness. $out .= " - $name"; $result->{name} = $name; # <===== here } The error message refers to the sharing of the sharing of a scalar and as, in Win32, the $name scalar has a value of something like: file://C:/peterm/.cpanplus/5.8.0/build/WWW-Mechanize-0.52/blib/t/tick.html it appears the # is not the only thing that can confuse Test::Harness?? If I change $name to "file:/peterm/......./tick.html" there's no problem with sharing. Haven't checked what Test::Harness is really choking on, but it's down to that... -Peter G.

Please try this: Remove line 13, the isa_ok(), from tick.t, and rerun it. I think that URI::file isn't playing well with others. Thanks for your help. xoa -- Andy Lester => andy@petdance.com => www.petdance.com => AIM:petdance

Naah. That isn't where the problem is. The problem is in line 16, ok( $mech->success, $uri ); and it looks like a thread-related problem. If I comment +that+ line out, tick.t runs and only reports that it looked like I only ran four tests when I planned to run 5 -- which is true. See my last not in bug page. Running in the debugger, if I previously reset the value of the $name scalar at line 318 in Builder.pm, and take out the "//C:" stuff, the assignment to the (shared) $result->{name} works ok, and the test passes. If I leave the //C: junk in, there's an immediate fatal error with the message about invalid value for a shared scalar at Builder.pm line 319.. More to the point -- I've now gone further. If I take out the "//" from the returned $uri, by changing the lines: ----------------------------- $mech->get( $uri ); ok( $mech->success, $uri ); ------------ to --------- $mech->get( $uri ); $uri =~ s|//||; ok( $mech->success, $uri ); -------------------------- -- the test runs successfully to conclusion, and reports the relevant result as: ok 4 - file:C:/peterm/.cpanplus/5.8.0/build/WWW-Mechanize-0.52/t/tick.html When it comes to threads, I bow out... but that share is the source of the problem for tick.t in Win32.. Presumably, if, as the code comment says in line 317, that "#" is a problem with Test::Harness, then "//" is a similar problem ? And may benefit from similar fix there? ie, $name =~ s|//||g; ? Meanwhile, attempting a similar fix in mech-forms.t still produces an error, even though the reported got looks just the same as the expected, when I add the kludge of : $expected =~ s|/|//C:/| if($^O =~ /MSWin/); atter the <DATA> collection. May be some control or formatting chars making the difference? Trying a further test to see if I can save and diff the "got" and expected data. -Peter -Peter G.

Andy: Once the file://C:/ issue's overcome in mech-forms.t, the difference detected between expected and actual amounts to double spaces forming right-padding before end of line in the actual result, cf expected result. ie. just white-space. Not sure what you do about this one.. good luck. -Peter G. Martin, Technical writer, Proxima Technology

This is fixed. The resulting page target is now platform-specific, since we're delaing with cross-platform testing. New Mech should be up today, or get it from CVS on sourceforge.

tick.t fixed ok, but mech-forms.t still not right in 0.53 under Win32. Test failure report shows actual "file://C:/target-page" when expected "file:/target-page" # Failed test (t/mech-forms.t at line 18) # got: 'GET file://C:/target-page # hl=en (hidden) # ie=ISO-8859-1 (hidden) # q= # btnG=Google Search (submit) # btnI=I'm Feeling Lucky (submit) # # ' # expected: 'GET file:/target-page # hl=en (hidden) # ie=ISO-8859-1 (hidden) # q= # btnG=Google Search (submit) # btnI=I'm Feeling Lucky (submit) # # '
