Subject: A compilation problem may caused by Base.pm?

Hi! I was trying to install a new module Math::MatrixReal on Ubuntu 8.10, but a problem was reported: ------------------------------------------------ root@ubuntu:/***/Math-MatrixReal-1.3# ./Build Manifying blib/lib/Math/MatrixReal.pm -> blib/libdoc/Math::MatrixReal.3pm Can't write-open blib/libdoc/Math::MatrixReal.3pm: 非法的参数 at /***/perl/5.10/Module/Build/Base.pm line 2585 ------------------------------------------------ That was because a filename contains ":" was illegal(at least on Ubuntu & Win). I'd checked the source code of Base.pm. The method "manpage_separator" returns "::" which causes this problem, and "/" will be OK. Did this mean it would return an illegal filename when installing a subclass?

It works fine for me on Ubuntu 8.10. How is your filesystem formatted? (run "mount" and see what says for the partition containing the blib in your error. -- David

vfat. Does that matter? I didn't know.....

Yes, that's the problem. Or the bug, depending on one's point of view. On a unix-like OS, most things assume typical unix filename constraints, but vfat has Windows filename constraints, even when mounted by a unix operating system. Still -- it would probably be good for M::B to try to detect this and give you a more useful error message. -- David

I see that. Thank you very much! I should have noticed that I still worked on a Windows filesystem. It's not a good habit, I know... I'm almost a beginner in Unix-like OS... Maybe a detection would be a good idea, if that won't introduce any other problems. Or perhaps simply return a "/" instead of "::" may have avoided this filesystem problem? I'm not quite sure if it will be a simpler solution.

I've raised it on IRC on #p5p. My thought is that if :: doesn't work, then manpages shouldn't be created at all. There's no point changing the manpage name since they won't be reachable with "man" anyway. You'd have to just rely on "perldoc". -- David

Yep, my mistake. It didn't work with "/" unless a few changes were made. Well, thank you then!
Fixed in repository trunk.
