Subject: Use prompt() in Makefile.PL to Allow Automated Tests
Download (untitled) / with headers

Dear Ken Williams, Hi. This is imacat from Taiwan. I found that the Makefile.PL of Apache-Compress-1.005 goes into infinite loop if nothing is read from keyboard. I would suggest that you use prompt() instead of directly obtain input from the STDIN, as suggested in the ExtUtils::MakeMaker document, so that the it won't go into infinite loop. <<ExtUtils::MakeMaker>> Other Handy Functions Also, I would suggest you to exit() with 0 from the Makefile.PL if the required httpd fails, as suggested by this article: <<Notes For CPAN Authors> "How can I stop getting FAIL reports for missing libraries or other non-Perl dependencies?" I made a simple patch to Apache-Compress-1.005, in the hope that it helps. Please tell me if you have any question, or if I could be of any help. Thank you.
