Subject: prove freezes when the t directory contains a structure of sub-directories with tests
Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2009 20:09:55 +0200

From: Octavian Râşniţă <orasnita [...]>
Hello, I have tried to use prove with the following parameters (under Windows XP Pro, with ActivePerl 5.10.0): prove -r -l t After it processes a few tests, it freezes although all the tests are correct. Under the t directory I have up to 3 levels of directories with test files in them. If I put all the test files directly in the t directory, the command prove works fine. It works even if I decrease the number of directory levels with 1. I've seen that even if there are more levels of directories under t, prove works fine if I put it to run more jobs in parallel. For example, the following command works: prove -j 15 -r -l t but the following doesn't: prove -j 14 -r -l t I created the tests for a Catalyst app, and I would like to have the same structure of the lib/MyApp directory under the t directory, and that's why it would be fine if prove would work with more sub-directories... I have tested and the same directory structure can be tested fine under Linux so the problem appears only under Windows. Octavian
