Subject: Win32 vs. AnyEvent: An Installation Tale
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 321b
Without the cpan shell's notest pragma, AnyEvent's installation stalls indefinitely while waiting for the third 'ok' in both /t/02_signals.t and /t/03_child.t. Signals are unsupported by the Win32 API and are merely emulated in Win32 perl, so a kill('CHLD', 0) call never truly produces a signal to catch on Windows.

Hi, your report will be ignored when sent to and not the official contact address mentioned in the module documentation. Please close your report again and use the contact address from the module documentation to report any issues. If this is an inconvenience to you please consider petitioning the authors to make their service optional and not enforced, so this inconvenience can be avoided in the future. Thanks a lot, Marc Lehmann <>

Ah. The current META-spec < spec.html#resources> allows for non-standard/non-default URLs (for bugtracker, homepage, etc.) to be listed by CPAN on a module's dist page and to the right of each POD'd module's page. From your current distribution, I notice you're using ExtUtils::MakeMaker... You may want to try E::M's (currently experimental) EXTRA_META key to replace the default bugtracker link (CPAN-RT) with one of your own. See E::M's own Makefile.PL for an example. [Report marked 'rejected' and forwarded to the address listed above.]
