Subject: Fails on nvsize==16
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 473b
Sample fail report: http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/17469128 This is a floating point issue. The test seems to compare floating point numbers for string-equality. This often fails when the hardware architecture is dfferent, in this case nvsize==16. BTW, out of curiosity: I have no idea why this distribution received only such a small amount of tests from cpantesters (at the time of this writing I count 22). Do you have an explanation? HTH, Thanks && Regards,

Sounds likely, will look into it. Show quoted text

I suspect because it requires v8 + headers to be installed, which isn't that common. I have a todo to make it pull a copy in if the system doesn't have v8 (via Alien::V8) but haven't got to it yet.
