Hi, I am using the Curses::UI module for our software (version 0.9607). I encountered a strange problem on a AIX machine where the simple hello world program would not work -- when any key was pressed, the program would crash. Using the -compat option, I was able to get the error message to print. Curses constant 'KEY_RESIZE' is not defined by your vendor at /hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/incaReporterManager/Inca-ReporterManager-10.12052/contrib/Curses-1.24/Curses-UI-0.9607/examples/../lib/Curses/ line 386 It looks like the implementation of the KEY_RESIZE in the underlying Curses library on this AIX machine throws an exception since it is not supported. My fix was to enclose line 387 in an eval statement like eval { $key = '-1' if $key eq KEY_RESIZE();}; So far, this appears to not have any bad consequences for me. This problem looks similar to an existing bug report I enclose some system version information below Thanks, Shava bash-2.05a$ uname -a AIX l1f401 3 5 00CD7EAF4C00 bash-2.05a$ perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 10 subversion 1) configuration: Platform: osname=aix, osvers=, archname=aix uname='aix l1f401 3 5 00cd7eaf4c00 ' config_args='-de -Dprefix=/hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/perl5.10' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=define useithreads=undef, usemultiplicity=undef useperlio=define, d_sfio=undef, uselargefiles=define, usesocks=undef use64bitint=undef, use64bitall=undef, uselongdouble=undef usemymalloc=n, bincompat5005=undef Compiler: cc='cc -q32', ccflags ='-D_ALL_SOURCE -D_ANSI_C_SOURCE -D_POSIX_SOURCE -qmaxmem=-1 -qnoansialias -DUSE_NATIVE_DLOPEN -I/usr/local/include -q32 -D_LARGE_FILES -qlonglong', optimize='-O', cppflags='-D_ALL_SOURCE -D_ANSI_C_SOURCE -D_POSIX_SOURCE -qmaxmem=-1 -qnoansialias -DUSE_NATIVE_DLOPEN -I/usr/local/include' ccversion='', gccversion='', gccosandvers='' intsize=4, longsize=4, ptrsize=4, doublesize=8, byteorder=4321 d_longlong=define, longlongsize=8, d_longdbl=define, longdblsize=8 ivtype='long', ivsize=4, nvtype='double', nvsize=8, Off_t='off_t', lseeksize=8 alignbytes=8, prototype=define Linker and Libraries: ld='ld', ldflags =' -brtl -bdynamic -L/usr/local/lib -b32 -bmaxdata:0x80000000' libpth=/usr/local/lib /lib /usr/lib /usr/ccs/lib libs=-lbind -lnsl -ldbm -ldl -lld -lm -lcrypt -lc perllibs=-lbind -lnsl -ldl -lld -lm -lcrypt -lc libc=/lib/libc.a, so=a, useshrplib=false, libperl=libperl.a gnulibc_version='' Dynamic Linking: dlsrc=dl_aix.xs, dlext=so, d_dlsymun=undef, ccdlflags=' -bE:/hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/perl5.10/lib/5.10.1/aix/CORE/perl.exp' cccdlflags=' ', lddlflags=' -bhalt:4 -G -bI:$(PERL_INC)/perl.exp -bE:$(BASEEXT).exp -bnoentry -lc -lm -L/usr/local/lib' Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): Compile-time options: PERL_DONT_CREATE_GVSV PERL_MALLOC_WRAP USE_LARGE_FILES USE_PERLIO Built under aix Compiled at Jan 5 2010 18:33:06 @INC: /hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/perl5.10/lib/5.10.1/aix /hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/perl5.10/lib/5.10.1 /hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/perl5.10/lib/site_perl/5.10.1/aix /hpcx/home/e24/e24/ssmallen/perl5.10/lib/site_perl/5.10.1 . -------------------------------------------------------------- Shava Smallen, San Diego Supercomputer Center 9500 Gilman Dr. MS 0505 La Jolla, CA 92093-0505 Phone: (858)822-0962; Fax: (858) 822-0861
