Subject: Data::Flow fails on Strawberry Perl .... unless

Data::Flow sometimes fails it's tests when installing from CPAN on Strawberry Perl 10.0.0. This happens because one of the routines Data-Flow.t contains the following phrase: `cat MANIFEST`. Since many (most?) installations on windows will not have the cat program in the path, this will cause the test to fail. I ran across this trying to get h2xx to run with the -x switch. To do this it is necessary to install C::Scan which requires Data::Flow. Thanks, Dave Smith

What happens if you replace it with `perl -ple0 MANIFEST` ? Thanks, Ilya P.S. Show quoted text

A failure of a test does not make the installation impossible.
