Subject: Problems while interactively testing Curses::Widgets
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 505b
If CPAN::Reporter is turned on, then it is not possible to interactively test Curses::Widgets. All curses movements are translated to something like ^[OB^[OA^[OD^[OC. If using CPAN::Reporter is turned off in the same CPAN.pm session using "o conf init /report/" and the test is run again with "force test Curses::Widgets", then everything works as expected. Maybe there's some bad interaction with CaptureOutput and Curses? This was observed on a FreeBSD-6.2 system with perl-5.10.0 Regards, Slaven

CPAN::Reporter only uses IO::CaptureOutput for its tests. Normal operation, however, uses Tee to capture output while still showing results to the console. I think this is a bug in Curses::Widgets tests -- it should check to see if it's writing to an interactive console, not a pipe. David
