Subject: Test Fails in 03 as "undefined value as a symbol reference"
I am running AIX 4.3.3 ML-11+Post on a RS/6000-42W (a PPC-604e w/128MB ECC RAM), my perl is 5.10.0-aix-stdio (built with gcc-3.4.3 compiled on this machine), no threads, no largefiles, and no perlio of any variety---I have appended perl -V output). During a CPAN load for Class::Accessor::Complex (a long and ridiculously convoluted process), Path::Class gaaked (besides the commented TODOs which were printed and ignored by CPAN build). I downloaded sources and built them using 'perl Makefile.PL', 'make', and then 'make test'; again, the module fails the test in the third test file, at the same place, and in the same way. I don't **see** anything amiss; there were no other bug reports of similar problems; there are no AIX testers reporting. SYMPTOM: 'make test' fails in the 't/03-filesystem.t' test because the reference ('$fh') returns 'undef'; as near as I can tell, because the method call 'my $fh = $file->open('w')' fails: [9] my $file = file('t', 'testfile'); [10] ok $file; [11] { [12] my $fh = $file->open('w'); [13] ok $fh; [14] [15] ok print $fh "Foo\n"; [16] } BEGIN MAKE TEST OUTPUT: PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/etc/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/01-basic.t ....... ok t/02-foreign.t ..... 16/29 # Test 28 got: "dir/subdir" (t/02-foreign.t at line 68 *TODO*) # Expected: "/dir/subdir" # t/02-foreign.t line 68 is: ok $dir->as_foreign('Unix'), '/dir/subdir'; # Test 29 got: "" (t/02-foreign.t at line 69 *TODO*) # Expected: "1" # t/02-foreign.t line 69 is: ok $dir->as_foreign('Unix')->is_absolute, 1; t/02-foreign.t ..... ok t/03-filesystem.t .. 1/64 Can't open a reference at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.0/aix-stdio/IO/ line 185. # Failed test at t/03-filesystem.t line 13.
