Subject: make test fails
HTML-FromText-2.05 perl 5.005_03 Linux kernel 2.2.17 (custom built) *~/work/HTML-FromText-2.05> perl -c lib/HTML/FromText.pm syntax error at lib/HTML/FromText.pm line 285, near "$_ foreach " lib/HTML/FromText.pm had compilation errors. I spent about 30 minutes on this trying to see what the heck was wrong, tried different structures. Even with the loop changed to for my $d ( @DECORATORS ) { $options->{$d} and $self->$d } I got the same error: *~/work/HTML-FromText-2.05> perl -c lib/HTML/FromText.pm syntax error at lib/HTML/FromText.pm line 287, near "$d }" lib/HTML/FromText.pm had compilation errors. Because this is an older version of perl, I wonder if it's a problem with syntax changes, but I don't see how.

Try replacing $self->$d with $self->$d(); Just a hunch. If it works out I'll get it in the next release. Thanks! Casey West -- I am a superhero.

If you add parens to the $_ it will work in earlier versions of perl: 285: $options->{$_} and $self->$_() foreach @DECORATORS; Alan
