Subject: Test failure with 5.6.x (Encode-related)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 500b
A decoded_content-related test in t/base/message.t fails with perl 5.6.2. See for a sample report. The problem is that "require Encode" may be called in decode_content, but it is not available in 5.6.x. As a workaround the failing test could be skipped if running with 5.6.x --- it seems that the failure was always there, but only the test is new. (I can provide a patch if you accept this workaround) Regards, Slaven
A patch along those lines would be gladly accepted.
