Subject: Missing CPAN::Meta::YAML dependency
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 798b
While installing under cygwin (PERL 5.10.1) via cpan, I receive the following error during tests: t/mymeta.t ..................... 25/39 Can't locate object method "new" via package "CPAN::Meta::YAML" at t/mymeta.t line 115. # Looks like you planned 39 tests but ran 28. # Looks like your test exited with 2 just after 28. t/mymeta.t ..................... Dubious, test returned 2 (wstat 512, 0x200) I looked at mymeta.t and saw a call to CPAN::Meta::YAML->new(). I did not have CPAN::Meta::YAML installed, and the Module::Build doesn't call it out as a dependency. Further, I had to add 'use CPAN::Meta::YAML;' to mymeta.t for its tests to pass. This may only be a problem under cygwin / perl 5.10.1 as I was able to successfully install Module::Build on Ubuntu 11.10 / perl 5.12 with no issue.

Thanks for the report. I'll check it out. Generally, CPAN::Meta::YAML gets required (and loaded) by other modules, but maybe M::B needs to make it explicit. There are some issues reported about modules appearing missing. This might have to do with the ordering of library paths and core modules shadowing site-installed modules. Could you please run the following against your cygwin perl? $ perldoc -l CPAN::Meta $ perldoc -l Parse::CPAN::Meta $ perldoc -l CPAN::Meta::YAML Thank you, David

Here you go: $ perldoc -l CPAN::Meta /usr/lib/perl5/5.10/CPAN/Meta.pm $ perldoc -l Parse::CPAN::Meta /usr/lib/perl5/5.10/Parse/CPAN/Meta.pm $ perldoc -l CPAN::Meta::YAML /usr/lib/perl5/5.10/CPAN/Meta/YAML.pm Let me know how else I can help. Thanks! - David On Fri, Nov 18, 2011 at 2:24 PM, David Golden via RT <bug-Module-Build@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
