Subject: Module will not install in Strawberry Perl +patch
Hi When installing XML::Atom in Strawberry Perl v5.12.3 on Windows 7, the installation fails at test 31 with a invalid URI message. I've rated this as critical as this bug stops XML::Atom from installing on Windows, and therefore stops upstream modules in CAPN from installing on Windows as well (Such as Net::Google::Calendar). The problem appears to be that in test 31, which uses the test code 31- external-entities-libxml.t, the file URI is obtained by the module FileBin. But the file URI that is provided by FindBin includes the Windows Drive letter syntax and a reversed directory seperatorIn my case this results in C:/ being included in the path that the FindBin modules returns. Which then chokes with t/31-external-entities-libxml.t .. :3: parser error : Invalid URI: file://C:/st awberry/cpan/build/XML-Atom-0.39-hGqzUB/t/samples/entry-ns.xml EM "file://C:/strawberry/cpan/build/XML-Atom-0.39- hGqzUB/t/samples/entry-ns.xml ^ :20: parser error : Entity 'ref' failed to parse <content type="text/html" xml:lang="en-us">&ref; ^ # Looks like your test exited with 255 before it could output anything. t/31-external-entities-libxml.t .. Dubious, test returned 255 (wstat 65280, 0xf 00) Failed 4/4 subtests Adding in the substitution regex below , after the my declaration of $filepath, strips out the c:/ and test 31 passes and the module installs. $filepath =~ s/\w\:\///; Cheers Andrew Dent Computer Troubleshooters Croydon
