Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2008 12:51:40 +0530
To: bug-OS2-Process@rt.cpan.org
From: SatheeshKumar <sathyz@gmail.com>
I was trying to install OS2::Process perl module in cygwin environment. when I do perl Makefile.PL am getting the following message and got stuck there, -- message-- [OS2-Process-0.2]sn-patch13:oss[22:56:03] perl Makefile.PL WARNING: MAN3PODS takes a hash reference not a string/number. Please inform the author. Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Can't use string (" ") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at C:/cygwin/opt /spikesource/share/perl/lib/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm line 503. [OS2-Process-0.2]sn-patch13:oss[22:56:07] Shouldn't it use MM_Cygwin instead of MM_Unix? or is there any mistake in my installation procedure (am I missing some dependencies??) . Operating System: CYGWIN_NT-5.2 Perl Version : 5.8.7 Module : OS2::Process -- :sathyz

I have no idea. Since OS2::Process is going to be of zero value on Win* system, I do not consider fixing your system a high priority. ;-) :-( Yours, Ilya
