It looks like all these tests failed because no valid pager was found in PAGER despite the fact that a recent version of File::Which is present on the test machines. Then IO::Pager seemed to have proceeded to the usual suspects. I have no idea what might cause this test failure. It might be worth adding some diagnostic messages in the tests. Or contacting the persons who generated the tests to get more information. Florent

Yes, it seemed odd to me too, which is why I logged it. Do you want to take point on this? (At least the previous bug iw fixed, and this one seems to be setup specific)

These detailed bug reports are nice! Note that in all cases where the test failed, the Perl used was not in the PATH. Hence File::Which could not find it. I fixed the issue by skipping the test if File::Which cannot find Perl. Florent

Cool. Interesting that a CPANTS tester would be working on q system without a perl anywhere in the path...
