Subject: Archive::Tar fails to build against IO::Zlib 1.02
Download (untitled) / with headers

When trying to build Archive::Tar v1.10 against IO::Zlib 1.02, 'make test' produces the following error: t/01_use........ok t/02_methods....ok 1/0Can't use string ("Unknown") as a symbol ref while "strict refs" in use at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/IO/ line 545. # Looks like your test died just after 4. t/02_methods....dubious Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00) after all the subtests completed successfully t/99_pod........skipped all skipped: Test::Pod v0.95 required for testing POD Failed Test Stat Wstat Total Fail Failed List of Failed ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- t/02_methods.t 255 65280 4 0 0.00% ?? 1 test skipped. Failed 1/3 test scripts, 66.67% okay. 0/6 subtests failed, 100.00% okay. I do not know if the problem is with Arcive::Tar or IO::Zlib.

This appears to be a problem in Archive::Tar so I fail to see why it has been sent to the IO-Zlib queue.

OK, so this does appear to be down to a change in IO::Zlib, but it ain't my code I'm afraid. It's in the horribly over the top symbol table manipulation that Jarkko added to support external gzip so I'm turning this over to him.

In the meantime, may i suggest pulling this release from cpan? this is going to break a crap load of code, including archive::tar (therefor, among others, and cpanplus =/)

IO::Zlib 1.03 has now been released with a fix for this problem. Version 1.02 has been pulled from CPAN to avoid any further problems.
