Subject: problem with incorrect META.yml in AVOGE/CAE-Nastran-Nasmod-0.23.tar.gz
Show quoted text
> cpan -t AVOGE/CAE-Nastran-Nasmod-0.23.tar.gz
... Can't use string ("my $distmeta = { name => 'Nasmod"...) as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at perl51911\perl\lib/CPAN/Distribution.pm line 2698. CPAN should print a relevant error message and probably just skip reading META.yml. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net
Hopefully fixed in commit 76d012a649218dd3eef5f5af431621b284412591. I could not reproduce it exactly as you reported it but I see the code and believe this is a good sanity check. Thanks!
