Not quite! There were still problems with test 4 & 6: t/embedded-Business-Hours....NOK 4# Failed test (lib/Business/ at line 199) # got: '162001' # expected: '162000' t/embedded-Business-Hours....NOK 6# Failed test (lib/Business/ at line 399) # got: '86400' # expected: '0' I tracked down where the extra second is coming from - I think. So I added an additional 22 tests (included in the patch) and it actually appears that the tests were wrong. Not the code. Because localtime of '0' is actually 10am in Australia rather than midnight UTC or close of business in the US the calculation of time is off. The tests I've added seem to do a better job of replacing test #4 on line 199. Change at your discretion. For the test on line 399 (Now on line 422). I have really no idea. Probably still a timezone problem. Remember that 0 seconds since the epoch is a business second in Australia: % perl -e 'print scalar localtime(0);' Thu Jan 1 10:00:00 1970 So I haven't figured that one out yet. But one problem less for Ozzie RTIR users. The remaining error is included below - any hints? -Brook # make test cp lib/Business/ blib/lib/Business/ PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/embedded-Business-Hours....# Failed test (lib/Business/ at line 422) # got: '86400' # expected: '0' t/embedded-Business-Hours....ok 51/0# Looks like you failed 1 tests of 51. t/embedded-Business-Hours....dubious Test returned status 1 (wstat 256, 0x100) DIED.
