Subject: t/05_sigint.t fails on AIX 6 for 5.10, 5.12 and 5.14

I have just built Test-TCP-1.13 on the following platform and perl combinations: Platforms: 32 and 64 bit RHEL 5, Solaris 10, and AIX 6 Perls: 5.10.1, 5.12.4, 5.14.2 The test suite passes for RHEL5 and Solaris 10, but fails on AIX 6. The results are independent of the core perl version. The test failure output is: [efsops@shou18l560-02 Test-TCP-1.13]$ perl -Mblib t/05_sigint.t 1..2 ok 1 not ok 2 - sigint # Failed test 'sigint' # at t/05_sigint.t line 20. # got: 'ZERO' # expected: 'INT' # Looks like you failed 1 test of 2. The reason for the failure is somewhat subtle. On AIX, the value assigned to $? by wiatpid can not be passed to the POSIX functions. However, if the ${^CHILD_ERROR_NATIVE} value is used, then this works fine, and on ALL of the above platforms. While the root cause of this problem is likely a bug in perl related to how $? is handled internally, the patch I've provided seems correct when you consider that the documentation for CHILD_ERROR_NATIVE specifically documents THIS variable (and not $?/$CHILD_ERROR) as the one to pass to the POSIX functions. I suspect that passing $? works for backwards compatibility, but clearly, it doesn't work on ALL platforms, and the core perl tests seem to reflect this as well.

This issue was fixed at 1.14, maybe.

I'm getting this issue now on CentOS 7 for 5.20, but only when the tests are run by our Jenkins process. When I run them manually on the same box, same build, same user, it works. Could it be that something is different when the test is run unattended (no TTY?)?

I’m having this problem in Perl 5.8.8 on OS X 10.12.6. But not on 5.16.1 or 5.24.3 on the same box.
