Subject: Request for a shorter filename in the distribution - file system portability

Hello and thanks for Mouse 0.44, I'm attempting to build version 0.44 on VMS and I'm running into: t/050_metaclasses/041_moose_nonmoose_moose_chain_init_meta.t having the filename part: 041_moose_nonmoose_moose_chain_init_meta longer than 39 chars (it's 40), this isn't supported by the default filesystem on VMS, it's just one letter too long. There is a module - Test::Portability::Files - that can help test a distribution for the file portability, here is an example of it being used: When run against Mouse 0.44 this test produces the output <cut> # These files have a name or extension too long for VMS (both # are limited to 39 characters): # t/050_metaclasses/041_moose_nonmoose_moose_chain_init_meta.t # # Looks like you failed 1 test of 1. Thanks for your consideration, Peter (Stig) Edwards

Hi, Peter. Thank you for your report. As you suggested, I have introduced xt/04_fs_portability.t for filesystem portability in 0.45. -- Goro Fuji (gfx) GFUJI at
