Hi, first let me thank you for creating this nice module! Unfortunately, version 0.08 does not install properly on my system (and cpantesters is accusing the same problem).

It just occured to me that your test suite might be wrong after all. In the POD you say (for the "file" method): ---------------8<--------------- file The path to the file in which the error occurred, possibly trunicated. If the error occurred in a script, the parser will attempt to return only the filename; if the error occurred in a module, the parser will attempt to return the path to the module relative to the directory in @INC in which it resides. ---------------8<--------------- The key point is "the parser will attempt to return only the filename". So it should return "file.pl" ***IF*** I was on Windows. Since I am on Linux, "c:\my\very\long\path\to\this\perl\script\called\error.pl" is *not* a valid path, so the method is working properly by returning the full name - in fact, you can create a valid file named "c:\my\very\long\path\to\this\perl\script\called\error.pl" on linux, on any path. Perhaps you should create different error message strings for different operating systems, and use something like $^O or Devel::CheckOS to find the appropriate string to check under that OS. Hope this helps! Cheers, -b

Well, I got bored and did that for you. The new t/06-short_filename.t and Makefile.PL are attached to this message. I also provided them as a diff, if you prefer. Now 'make', 'make test' and 'make install' all work nicely. Hope to see the new CPAN release soon! Cheers, -b

To: bug-Parse-ErrorString-Perl [...] rt.cpan.org
From: Petar Shangov <pshangov [...] yahoo.com>
Thanks very much for the feedback, a new version of the module will soon be on CPAN. It took some time since the Makefile.PL issue is not very trivial as it seems and fully resolving it will involve some bug-fixing of Module::Build. Petar Show quoted text
