Subject: [PATCH] make find_perl_interpreter simple on VMS
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 370b
A number of Module::Build tests in blead were succeeding individually but failing when run from t/TEST. Rather than trying to fix humpty dumpty in the mainline version of find_perl_interpreter, the attached just returns $^X, which is already as good as you can possibly get for identifying the perl you are currently running. This was checked into blead as #32028.
