Subject: overload-eval has issues with Devel::Autoflush

Hi David, today overload-eval-0.07 caught my attention and it seems obvious that it has issues with CPAN::Reporter and in particular with Devel::Autoflush because up to 1.15 its cpantesters results were nearly completely green. Since then I see only fails. Watch in the recent reports this line: Undefined subroutine &main:: called at /tmp/CPAN-Reporter-lib-HRNE/Devel/Autoflush.pm line 12 E.g. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/2008/09/msg2299448.html (CC'd to JJORE) Regards,

That looks like an unexpected interaction because Devel::Autoflush happens to use the "$VERSION = eval $VERSION" incantation and thus its version gets printed, which isn't what the tests expect. Easily removed. Then I just hope someone doesn't write overload::equals and print out the initial VERSION assignment. I wonder whether just using Devel::Autoflush on Makefile.PL and Build.Pl might be somewhat safer, as the problems it tries to address are more often there than in tests. -- David

If you want further surprises, look at Devel::ebug. I just found it with 5.10.0 failing with some flush string in the logs. But when I try it without CPAN.pm in between, it is "All tests successful". Show quoted text

Very interesting solution indeed. -- andreas

And did we already talk about Test::Dependencies? It belongs in the same category: Devel::Autoflush in the test logfile but not so when I run 'make test' directly. -- andreas

This specific bug was fixed in the latest Devel::Autoflush. The more general suggestion of only running D::A for *.PL and not tests is on the Todo list, as soon as I figure out an elegant way to change the API. -- David
