Subject: Prompting questions in all three phases (PL, make, test)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 668b
When testing the Text::Markdown module with the command /usr/perl5.8.8/bin/cpan -t Text::Markdown I have to answer the questions asked in the two prompt_script() calls there three times: when running perl Makefile.PL, when running make, and when running make test. I would expect to ask the questions only once at perl Makefile.PL time. The complete CPAN.pm log is attached (best viewed with "less -R" because of the ANSI sequences). This happens on a FreeBSD system with perl5.8.8. (I am not sure if this is a problem of ExtUtils::Install or of its usage in the Text-Markdown distribution. Feel free to move the ticket if you think so). Regards, Slaven

This looks like a Module::Install / auto_install issue. It appears it's causing Text::Markdown to get rebuilt several times. So I'd talk to them. Appears to have nothing to do with ExtUtils::Install. -- 151. The proper way to report to my Commander is “Specialist Schwarz, reporting as ordered, Sir” not “You can’t prove a thing!” -- The 213 Things Skippy Is No Longer Allowed To Do In The U.S. Army http://skippyslist.com/list/
As Schwern says this doesnt seem to be a problem in EUI.

This was caused by deprecated "prompt_script()" that was removed in Module::Install 0.72. I'll report this to Text::Markdown tracker as it still has this command, but for now I'd like to close this ticket. Thanks.
