Hi, I'm experiencing test failures for List-MoreUtils-0.22 under (a locally compiled) Perl 5.6.1 on Linux; see the attached log for details. I've also attached patch to List::MoreUtils that makes the t/List-MoreUtils-pp.t tests pass (tested on both our local Perl versions, 5.6.1 and 5.8.8). I haven't looked into the non-pure-perl test failures; I'm planning on only using the pure-perl version for our aging 5.6.1 dsitribution. Please let me know if there is any further information you need in order to have this fixed. Best regards, -- Harald

Thanks for the report and apologies for taking so long to respond. I am not yet convinced that assigning a copy of values to a localized $_ is the correct solution. For one, it creates a copy which I'd like to avoid and secondly, localizing $_ instead of *_ to the best of my knowledge triggers a bug with older perls when the the previous value of $_ is a tied glob (unlikely as that is). 0.23 which I just released does not yet have a fix for this, but I will have to make a new release soon anyway. As for 5.6.1, L::MoreUtils should compile fine on perls as old as 5.005_3 and maybe you find a way to use the XS version. Cheers, Tassilo
On my perl 5.6.1 it doesn't fail anymore - I rate it as fixed ;)
