Subject: source plugin does no longer work for configuration commands
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 692b
I am trying to write a chef provider (package install adapter) for cpan, and found that I wanted to install packages in sub-directories as uninstall left files around. With 0.82 I was able to do this with (tagged on i on the end of course): $ echo -e "s conf makeflags PREFIX=...\ns conf prereqs 0" | cpanp /source /dev/stdin Key 'makeflags' was set to 'PREFIX=...' Key 'prereqs' was set to '0' With 0.9011 the above terminates after the first line. This is because _set_conf unconditionally returns 1 and I think #47250 now propagate that to dispatch_on_input and back to the plugin which terminates when given 1 (perhaps meant for 'q' and errors?). Suggest having _set_conf on success.
