Hi Justin, I am having trouble with CPANPLUS::Dist::Arch when trying to install Text::LevenshteinXS. It aborts with the error message: [ERROR] Use of uninitialized value $vspec in pattern match (m//) at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/CPANPLUS/Dist/Arch.pm line 1065. This is inside the _scanvspec() function. A possibly related earlier message is: Unparsable version '' for prerequisite Test at /home/vs/.cpanplus/5.20.0/build/Text-LevenshteinXS-0.03/Makefile.PL line 4. It looks to me as though Text::LevenshteinXS has a non-versioned dependency and CPANPLUS::Dist::Arch cannot cope with that. Best regards, Volker

I think I found the cause of the problem and you were dead on. I should have anticipated an undefined version value. After I test my solution I will submit a new release on CPAN. Might I also suggest avoiding Text::LevenshteinXS and maybe trying Text::Levenshtein::Damerau which also has an XS version? The former is a tiny wrapper over a tiny C function, lacks tests, and apparently breaks on UTF8 strings, while the latter has several tests, a nice interface, and works on UTF8.

Thank you for the quick reaction! Also thanks for pointing me to Text::Levenshtein::Damerau, though this is a slightly different algorithm. I have yet to test Text::LevenshteinXS with unicode chars; one example in the manual suggests it is supposed to work with non-ASCII characters, for what that is worth.
I forgot to close this! Sorry.
