Hi,

 

First of all, I’m not a perl programmer.

I use a lot of tools that requires perl and have used a lot of modules from CPAN.

Running some tools often has a requirement of some perl modules.

 

The effort all the programmers are making to make life easier for the rest of us is upon words.

Keep up the good work! You’re all awesome.

 

I struggled a day trying to get HTML::FromText to work on Solaris 10.

Finally I found what the problem was and would like to report my findings.

 

I’m using vanilla Solaris 10 perl.

This is perl, v5.8.4 built for i86pc-solaris-64int

SunOS pxym01 5.10 Generic_147441-19 i86pc i386 i86pc

 

The dependencies was as always a bit of a struggle to sort out, this is what I had to install in this order.

HTML-Tagset-3.20

HTML-Parser-3.69

Email-Date-Format-1.002

Test-Simple-0.92

Test-Harness-3.17

TimeDate-1.20

Pod-Escapes-1.04

Pod-Simple-3.23

Test-Pod-1.45

MailTools-2.06

Email-Valid-0.190

Email-Find-0.10

Email-Find-0.10

Exporter-Lite-0.02

Scalar-List-Utils-1.21

HTML-FromText-2.05

 

All compile and test fine except HTML-FromText-2.05 which fails “make test” but compiles fine.

It turned out it can’t handle ‘ see below  at à O’Reilly

root@pxym01:/var/tmp/perl-modules/HTML-FromText-2.05# make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.tt/01_features.t .. 1/?

#   Failed test 'indented tables with normal para'

#   at t/01_features.t line 286.

#          got: '<table class="hft-tables">

#   <tr><td>http://theperlreview.com</td><td>The Perl Review</td></tr>

# </table>

# '

# Looks like you failed 1 test of 28.

 

Simply removing the ‘ in the test file (there is another ‘ as well in t/02_v2.01.t ) makes the test run clean.

Is there another module that fixes this or is it a bug in HTML::FromText?

There is a lot of reports that this module won’t PASS. http://search.cpan.org/~cwest/HTML-FromText-2.05/

 

I guess it will work just fine as long as I avoid using ‘ in the translated text.
