Subject: Compat.pm passthrough Makefile.pl needs build.com on VMS.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 332b
The passthrough makefile.pl created by compat.pm is hardcoded test for the creation of a script named "build". The file is named "Build.com" on VMS. The name is stored in the $self->{properties}{build_script} This causes the compat.t test to fail several tests. Attached is a Compat.pm patched to allow compat.t to pass on VMS.

Your patch appears to change the name of the Build script from "Build" to "build.com". (Note lowercase change). Is it "Build.com" or "build.com" or does VMS care? -- David

The change in case for 'Build' was a mistake on my part. The Build/Platform/VMS.pm changes the file name to be 'Build.com'. VMS by default does not pay attention to the case of files. It does have a mode to be case specific, but a lot of things will need fixing. -John
Thanks, John. Amended patch applied to trunk.
