This is either a duplicate or override of bug 40636. Both of these bugs fail the text.t test and the latest perl patch (34900) changes the way the failure presents. Show quoted text

This looks like another iteration of the same problem (an outdated Pod::Simple and for some reason the test suite isn't skipping that test). What does /runtime/perl-5.10.0-34900/bin/perl -MPod::Simple -e 'print $POD::Simple::VERSION, "\n"' say?

This really looks like a problem with Pod::Simple and with the test suite not picking up that you have an outdated Pod::Simple, although I'm not sure why that would be. I'm also not sure why you're seeing this when Perl 5.10 should have a new enough Pod::Simple. I can't duplicate this bug, though, so without more information, I can't really address it. The main bit of information that I need is to know what Pod::Simple your Perl invocation is picking up and if there is some other Pod::Simple on the system. I also need to know what the $Pod::Simple::VERSION string is.
podlators 2.3.0 now requires Pod::Simple 3.06 and uses Test::More for all the tests, and the special case for S<> formatting codes has been removed.  I'm curious if any of these changes cause this bug to go away.

I've never been able to reproduce this problem, and there have been no new reports since 2009, so I'm going to go ahead and reject the bug, since I don't think there's anything further that can be usefully investigated at this point.
