Subject: Module::Build 0.27 y_n enters endless loop in unattended mode
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 853b
Hello, once again, Module::Build produced a nice endless loop while running tests in unattended mode. The usage of Module::Build by iCal::Parser::SAX produces an endless loop, as it calls $build->y_n('Would you like to install ical2xml, a command line frontend?') without supplying a default value. Module::Build should B<not> allow that. It should always enforce a default or fail building if the module is running unattended and no default was supplied. In no case it should enter an endless loop repeating the question with the comment Please answer 'y' or 'n' until the process runs out of resources. Of course, an easy fix would be if the author used Module::Build in the "correct" way, but allowing the users of Module::Build to make such mistakes when a safeguard is easily implmented on Module::Builds side is wrong. -max
Thanks for the report, this is fixed in 0.2608 now. -Ken
