Subject: hard links not supported on Win32 FAT filesystem
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 441b
new() hangs forever because Win32 FAT32 filesystems don't support hard links. (see "perldoc perlport') (a) this should be documented (b) it would be better to die when not supported, possibly even in the Makefile.PL: if ( $^O eq 'MSWin32' ) { require Win32; my $fstype = eval { Win32::FsType() }; die "OS unsupported: your filesystem doesn't appear to support hard links" unless $fstype eq 'NTFS'; } Thanks, David
Works more gracefully in version 1.21 under Windows.
