Subject: Exit with 0 in Makefile.PL When WAIT Directory Is Not Available
Download (untitled) / with headers

Dear Ulrich Pfeifer, Hi. This is imacat from Taiwan. I found that the Makefile.PL in your WAIT-1.800 goes into an infinite loop if nothing is read from keyboard. I would suggest you to exit() with 0 from the Makefile.PL if the required WAIT directory 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 WAIT-1.800, in the hope that it helps. Please tell me if you have any question, or if I could be of any help. Thank you.
