Subject: ./Build testcover fails on Module-Build itself
Download (untitled) / with headers

I forked dagolden's module-build from, so I was working with version 0.36_11. I wanted to see how thoroughly Module-Build's test suite exercised its code. So I ran Build.PL && ./Build and ./Build testcover. Three tests failed outright: t/ppm.t; t/properties/needs_compiler.t; t/xs.t. This prevented the 'testcover' target from completing, which meant that I could not run 'cover'. Hence, no coverage analysis and no way to know where to start writing additional tests. I got the same results with: perl Makefile.PL; make; harness (my own alias for running make test with Devel::Cover). I don't know whether this should be thought of as a Module-Build bug or a Devel-Cover limitation. But xdg suggested I file an RT here. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan

I should have added: These 3 test files passed with regular ./Build test or with prove -vb. So the problem is definitely related to the testcover target.

This problem was alluded to in another RT by Eric Wilhelm in August 2008:
