Subject: Editing test report using vi under FreeBSD
Following is the usual flow when trying to edit a test report on a FreeBSD system: Do you want to review or edit the test report? (yes/no) [no] yes Editor [vi]: /tmp/lO7QPjCGeR.txt already locked, session is read-only. /tmp/lO7QPjCGeR.txt: unmodified, readonly: line 1 Press any key to continue: It is still possible to edit and save the report, but one has to force vi to do so. The reason is probably caused by the exlock feature in File::Temp. On operating systems where O_EXLOCK is supported (i.e. BSD systems) it will be used by default. This exclusive lock causes problems because vi seems to lock the file itself. The File::Temp documentation suggest to use the EXLOCK => 0 option in these cases. Here's a the lsof output of the temporary edit file. One can see the lock hold by perl: $ lsof /tmp/SL0Pty09z4.txt COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME perl5.8.8 13314 cpansand 3uW VREG 0,135 8077 29 /tmp/SL0Pty09z4.txt vi 26270 cpansand 3r VREG 0,135 8077 29 /tmp/SL0Pty09z4.txt Regards, Slaven

This is a Test::Reporter issue. Fixed (I hope) in Test-Reporter-1.51_01. Please give it a try and let me know how it works. David
