In Tk-Calculator-RPN-HP 1.2, the META.yml file doesn't seem to be parsable by the YAML module (0.71). Eg. perl -MYAML -e 'YAML::LoadFile("META.yml")' => YAML Error: Invalid characters in stream. This parser only supports printable ASCII Code: YAML_PARSE_ERR_BAD_CHARS Line: 0 Document: 0 at /usr/share/perl5/ line 36 I struck this trying to use the debian dh-make-perl program, which reads the META.yml for dependencies. It looks like the 3-part version number in Makefile.PL, 'Getopt::EvaP' => 2.3.5, has gone through to META.yml as raw bytes. Dunno what MakeMaker demands there. A string "2.3.5" perhaps? As long as everything else reading it can understand that too. All these multi-part version numbers seem to go wrong somewhere ... :-). -- Come to Bob's Camping and Outdoor supplies, for now is the winter of our discount tents.
