Subject: die messages not visible in pp generated binaries
Download (untitled) / with headers

I'm seeing some strange behavior with one specific app packaged by pp in windows. My current environment is: os: win xp sp3 perl: v5.10.1 (strawberry) PAR::Packer: 1.004 PAR: 1.002 When this app dies, I don't see any message on the console, it just ends. Unfortunately I can't post the contents of the app, but its a straightforward app that uses WWW::Mechanize, Spreadsheet::ParseExcel::Simple and a private module. Its a bit hard for me to debug this, since its not happening if I run the app normally with perl. I've added the following __DIE__ handler to try to understand what's happening, but it was not very helpful: $SIG{__DIE__} = sub { my $err = shift; print "from handler: $err"; print STDERR "from handler (stderr): $err"; }; The output I see is similar to this: C:\>foo.exe <some arguments> <some regular app output> from handler: die test at script/ line 104. from handler (stderr): die test at script/ line 104. C:\>perl <some arguments> <some regular app output> from handler: die test at line 104. from handler (stderr): die test at line 104. die test at line 104. (Note that the last line differs to the pp packed binary) I have also tried to enable debugging by commenting out the unset line for PERL5OPT on pp, but that wasn't that helpful either, I can't get the debugger shell working, and modules like Devel::Trace don't show complete output. Any pointers on where to start looking for things that might be affecting die are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, javs.
