Subject: XSLoader problem with perl 5.8.8
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.5k
Make,Test,Install work with 5.8.8 when I install a current Test::More. But then, when other parties try to load the, we get fails. This one has been seen with XSLoader, but before that I saw other, less obvious fails: t/XSLoader.t .. 1/23 # Failed test 'calling XSLoader::load() with a XS module and an incorrect version' # at t/XSLoader.t line 82. # 'Can't load '/home/sand-local/.cpan/build/PathTools-3.40-V8GBIB/blib/arch/auto/Cwd/' for module Cwd: /home/sand-local/.cpan/build/PathTools-3.40-V8GBIB/blib/arch/auto/Cwd/ undefined symbol: croak_xs_usage at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/ line 230. # at t/XSLoader.t line 81 # ' # doesn't match '/^Cwd object version \S+ does not match bootstrap parameter 12345678/' In despair I carved this ugly hack in place just to prove the concept gets me somewhere: # diff -u PathTools-3.40-MqGASU/Cwd.xs PathTools-3.40-j4G4c3/Cwd.xs --- PathTools-3.40-MqGASU/Cwd.xs 2013-01-16 07:20:32.000000000 +0100 +++ PathTools-3.40-j4G4c3/Cwd.xs 2013-01-23 12:11:58.000000000 +0100 @@ -410,7 +410,11 @@ dXSTARG; /* fastcwd takes zero parameters: */ if (ix == 1 && items != 0) +#ifdef PERL_ARGS_ASSERT_CROAK_XS_USAGE croak_xs_usage(cv, ""); +#else + croak( "call error: Not enough arguments" ); +#endif getcwd_sv(TARG); XSprePUSH; PUSHTARG; #ifndef INCOMPLETE_TAINTS I suppose you know better how to *really* fix this, I'm just glad I can continue from here.

I'm seeing the same on 5.10.0. Looks like that function was added in 3.39_01. David
I think requiring a newer ExtUtils::ParseXS might sort it out.

David, Is there a larger problem here? Namely, if the PathTools distribution is available on CPAN even when it's primarily maintained in Perl 5 blead, does that create an expectation that PathTools be backwards-compatible with earlier -- and now unsupported -- versions of Perl? Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
