Subject: Follow up to "fails on Win32" (
As the author of reported, tests fail on Win32 wrt the path separator. Having investigated this a bit further, the path separator check based on $^O eq 'MSWin32' is not the problem. When running under prove, all tests pass. The cause appears to be some weirdness is going on when running under nmake/dmake (verified with both), and therefore the cpan shell too. Under these conditions the "expected" path separator magically changes back to "/", causing the tests to fail. If we can avoid setting the separator when running under a make binary on Win32, the tests should pass. Not sure how to go about reliably detecting this. One possibility might be $seperator = "\\" if $^O eq 'MSWin32' && ! exists $ENV{MAKEFLAGS}; as MAKEFLAGS seems to be the only difference in %ENV. I don't know if you could depend on that though. Another possibility is using the value in $0, as it contains a path complete with separator that changes depending whether you are running under a make binary ("/") or via prove ("\"). This could be a more workable solution IMO. HTH, Will
