Subject: make test: Can't locate object method "binmode" via package "IO::File"
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 427b
Can't locate object method "binmode" via package "IO::File" at /nfs/private/user/wward/tech-stack/08.03.08.00/portable/cpan/build/MIME-tools-5.425/blib/lib/MIME/Body.pm line 437. Numerous cpan-testers reports show the same errors I'm getting so I won't bother pasting the details here. http://cpantesters.perl.org/show/MIME-tools.html I am unable to pass the "make test" phase and have doubts about the module working at all.

What Perl version are your failures occurring on?

I've tried 5.8.0 and 5.8.6.

Ok, can you please provide more details on your failures, rather than just a general referral to cpantesters? Cheers, Dave

Somewhere between 1.08 and 1.13 versions of IO::File binmode method has been added. http://search.cpan.org/diff?from=IO-1.20&to=IO-1.22#IO/File.pm I'm pretty sure bumping dependency to IO::File 1.13 will fix it. On Tue Mar 18 11:47:23 2008, dmo@dmo.ca wrote: Show quoted text

Yes, but I'm constrained against upgrading any binary modules in this particular case. Making the module be compatible with the older IO::File would be far more flexible. On Thu, Jun 19, 2008 at 6:01 PM, Ruslan Zakirov via RT <bug-MIME-tools@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text

If you're stuck with an older IO::File, you should probably use an older MIME-tools. I really don't want to try to keep it backwards-compatible with every bug and missing feature of older releases of its prerequisites. Cheers, Dave

Thanks, Ruslan. I'll bump that up for the next release. Cheers, Dave

Well, this is the only thing keeping modern MIME::Tools from working on Perl 5.6.1 which is still very widely used...
