lib/MIME/Decoder/BinHex.pm has the line: use Convert::BinHex; but the Makefile doesn't note the dependency; it also isn't used in any tests, so as an end user you only find the problem when an application like amavisd-new calls the code. Please include Convert::BinHex in the dependency list in the Makefile. For bonus points, include a test for the code using it :) Thanks, Thomas

Hmm. Convert::BinHex is really a soft dependency. I hesitate to make it a hard dependency because BinHex encoding is not recommended by any MIME standards-track RFC and many people never need to process BinHex-encoded files. I'll put in a "recommends" clause in the Makefile. And I guess I should eventually write a test. :) Regards, David.

Hi, I have just uploaded MIME-tools-5.503 to CPAN, which I believe resolves this ticket. Regards, David.
