|Subject:||t/compat.t has to wait a second after generating Makefile.PL for HP/UX to catch up|
SeeThis effects t/compat.t which generates a Makefile.PL If you use the HP-UX 'make' command, then "make test" for the module ExtUtils::MakeMaker usually fails at least once with this error: # Makefile out-of-date with respect to Makefile.PL This is because (1) Makefile.PL files are built dynamically (2) the Makefile is created within the same second as Makefile.PL (3) the make command on HP-UX conservatively assumes that files created at exactly the same time are out-of-date w.r.t. to each other. This is rarely a problem using MakeMaker for other modules since Makefile.PL is usually not created dynamically.
