Arghh, the test suite doesn't pass with those Perl versions. I tracked it down to the fact that the epoch 95649120000 gives the year 69 (not 4001) in perl-5.8.9, thus the first test in t/46warnings.t not passing. I'm not sure of the best way to fix that. Maybe such an un-managed epoch shouldn't be allowed in the first place for those versions of perl?

A bit more info: perlbrew exec perl -e 'print join(" : " , gmtime(95649120000))."\n";' perl-5.8.9 ========== 59 : 59 : 23 : 31 : 11 : 69 : 3 : 364 : 0 perl-5.14.4 ========== 0 : 0 : 0 : 1 : 0 : 3101 : 4 : 0 : 0 perl-5.16.3 ========== 0 : 0 : 0 : 1 : 0 : 3101 : 4 : 0 : 0 perl-5.18.2 ========== 0 : 0 : 0 : 1 : 0 : 3101 : 4 : 0 : 0

I suspect the real issue is 64 bit integer support. I tried reproducing the failures I saw on my perlbrewed Perls and couldn't, but my Perl 5.8.8 is 64-bit. I think I can just do a feature test in the code for 64-bit support and skip the tests otherwise.

Sounds great. Yep, I've got a 32 bits perl 5.8: perl -v This is perl, v5.8.9 built for i686-linux Best, J On Sun May 04 11:44:37 2014, DROLSKY wrote: Show quoted text
