So I ran a test with Devel::NYTProf 2.02 enabled, and when I ran nytprofhtml I got this: ----- Generating report... File format error: token 38 ('&'), line 8682 at /home/.../deps/lib/perl5/i86pc-solaris-thread-multi//Devel/NYTProf/Data.pm line 72. ----- Googling for a bit resulted in this recent conversation: http://groups.google.com/group/develnytprof-dev/browse_thread/thread/660485f185a69d5/f0754ab87ee039fe?lnk=gst&q=File+format+error#f0754ab87ee039fe So, I tried installing the SVN trunk, and then when I run the profiling run, I get this: ----- $ PERL5OPT=-d:NYTProf prove aggtests/util/data-general.t aggtests/util/data-general......Fid 6 filename contains strange characters ' ' (please report this possible corruption) at /home/lindsj05/source/pips3/branches/gold_prof/deps/lib/perl5//Test/More.pm line 896. ----- And if I now run nytprofhtml (just for reference), this happens: ----- $ nytprofhtml Generating report...

Thanks for the report Johan. I'll take a look at the .out file. It would be a _big_ help to us if you could find a small reproducible test case. Firstly, is the existing example reproducible? If so can you try cutting out portions and to see find the smallest reproducible example you can? Tim.

The following fails for me: $ PERL5OPT=-d:NYTProf perl util-data.t ------------------------------ use strict; use Test::More tests => 1; is_deeply([ ], [ ], "Will fail with the error in __END__"); __END__ $ PERL5OPT=-d:NYTProf perl util-data.t 1..1 Fid 7 filename contains strange characters ' ' (please report this possible corruption) at /home/lindsj05/source/pips3/branches/gold_prof/deps/lib/perl5//Test/More.pm line 896. ------------------------- It's not _exactly_ minimal in that it loads Test::More & friends and calls is_deeply() which probably isn't trivial, but I guess you'll have a decent shot of locating where in there it fails. /J

This is a bug in perl5.8.8. I've added a new option (xsfile=0) in the next release do disable the affected feature.
