Subject: PAR test fails a gui test with Win32/Exe.pm
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.4k
<code> Most of this was mentioned in Bug #52794, but there is a different bug, too. As mentioned in 52794, PAR.pl needs PAR/Filter/PodStrip.pm, but PAR/Filter/PodStrip.pm is installed with PAR.pl. In a fresh Perl install, since PodStrip.pm is not there, there are a lot of "Can't find" messages, and the said output verbiage interferes with the t/20 tests. Because of that, we cannot spot the bug subject here. Namely, that one of the t/20 tests that tests a gui switch fails. The current solution to the first problem (for me, that is) is to simply install PAR::Packer, just to get the PodStrip.pm installed. Then I can rerun the "dmake test" to see if there are any "real" bugs. There is. Test pp_gui_tests fails. I will paste the relevant parts of the results below. C:\temp\PAR-Packer-1.002>dmake test ... etcetera, etcetera, ... t/10-parl-generation.t ... ok t/20-pp.t ................ 31/34 Can't call method "remove" on an undefined value at C:/Perl/site/lib/Win32/Exe.pm line 220. # Failed test 'pp_gui_tests t/20-pp.t ................ 32/34 # amsg572: sub pp_gui_tests cannot system pp --gui --icon hi.ico -o hello.exe hello.pl:No such file or directory: # ' # at automated_pp_test.pl line 8446. t/20-pp.t ................ 34/34 # Looks like you failed 1 test of 34. t/20-pp.t ................

This issue has nothing to do with whether or not PAR/Filter/PodStrip.pm is installed or not. This issue is because of backslashes. When you are installing PAR::Packer it builds itself in blib and $INC to blib has backslashes. As a result PAR/Filter/PodStrip.pm is not packed and you have this issue. To fix, open script/par.pl and remove the line that reads: if ($Config{_delim} eq '\\') { s{\\}{/}g for @inc } You will see that it works afterwards.

#if ($Config{_delim} eq '\\') { s{\\}{/}g for @inc } Granted that this solves the problem with PodStrip.pm problem, there is still the problem in that the test cannot do pp --gui --icon hi.ico -o hello.exe hello.pl I cannot do it by hand, either, as shown in the paste further below. Also, there is a weird parlu9ejbKb.exe, also shown below. By the way, this is with Perl 5.10.1, mingw with gcc 3.4.5. -------Paste C:\tmp>dir 02/02/2010 08:12 AM 17 hello.pl 04/04/2007 04:25 PM 5,694 hi.ico C:\tmp>pp --gui --icon hi.ico -o hello.exe hello.pl Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw special) Can't call method "remove" on an undefined value at C:/Perl/site/lib/Win32/Exe.pm line 220.

Just tried it on Strawberry Perl 5.10.1.0 and there's no such issue. It generates hello.exe and I can even see that icon was injected successfully with both Explorer and ResHacker. Strawberry has Win32::Exe 0.11, and the fact that this happens inside Win32::Exe seems strange to me. Could it be something else entirely? For example, when you are building PAR-Packer, do parl.exeб parldyn.exe and static.exe have icons? It looks to me that your build fails because you don't have resource section in your executables, which would suggest your executables weren't linked against win32.coff... Also, what is your perl -V?

Yes, but, um, not special ones. They show the same windows icons as any ".exe" file. For comparison purposes, they are the same as the icons that Windows gives C:\perl\bin\a2p, and C:\perl\bin\perlglob. Same with C:\temp\PAR-Packer-1.002\myldr\par is the same, too. Show quoted text

Aha! You see, here's your problem. myldr/Makefile.PL checks for $cc being /^gcc\b/i and your $cc clearly doesn't start with gcc. You need to either rebuild Perl so that cc is not absolute, or ask Steffen Muller to check basename of $cc...

You suggested writing to Steffen Muller to check the basename of $cc because, to restate the problem, I cannot by hand do pp --gui --icon hi.ico -o hello.exe hello.pl because my MinGW's cc is not /^gcc\b/i, which is what is looked for. This also causes the 31st of the t/20-pp.t test file to fail, which is the same thing I am trying to do by hand above. My cc is not necessarily gcc, either, as I use a Microsoft compiler sometimes, too. I am sure others do, too. Recompiling ActiveState perl to get a module to work does not seem the way to go. Steffen, can you alter the Par::Packer code to check what cc is in use? My Windows XP ActiveState Perl 5.10.1 gets the error Can't call method "remove" on an undefined value at C:/Perl/site/lib/Win32/Exe.pm line 220, as reported in the rt bug.

Here is a fix for the "Can't call method "remove" on an undefined value " problem. Change line 106 of myldr/Makefile.PL to what you see below. } elsif ( ($cc =~ m/^gcc\b/i) or ($cc =~ m/\bgcc.exe\b/i) or ($cc =~ m/^cc\b/i and $gccversion)) { This, along wiht Alexey's other patch for commenting out if ($Config{_delim} eq '\\') { s{\\}{/}g for @inc } in script/par.pl, results in all tests passing on Windows XP, ActiveState 5.10.1. Thanks
Cf #55994, fixed in 1.005 (and Win32::Exe) Cheers, Roderich
