Subject: Missing symbol SvPVx_nolen on perl < 5.8.8
The module fails on perl < 5.8.8 due to the missing symbol SvPVx_nolen: $ make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/01basic...........................Can't load '/builddir/build/BUILD/XML-LibXML-1.85/blib/arch/auto/XML/LibXML/' for module XML::LibXML: /builddir/build/BUILD/XML-LibXML-1.85/blib/arch/auto/XML/LibXML/ undefined symbol: SvPVx_nolen at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.6/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/ line 230. at /builddir/build/BUILD/XML-LibXML-1.85/blib/lib/XML/ line 154 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /builddir/build/BUILD/XML-LibXML-1.85/blib/lib/XML/ line 154.

Hi Paul, thanks for the report. I fixed it in XML-LibXML-1.86 which I just uploaded to CPAN, by simply changing SvPVx_nolen() to SvPV_nolen(). SvPVx_nolen() does not appear to be mentioned in perldoc perlapi. Regards, -- Shlomi Fish
