( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Here's an issue I bumped into accidentally, while looking for solution to parent node, but I hesitate to ask a new SOPW question. For Strawberry Perl 5.24 (version to deploy to), even if (and that's confusing part) ExtUtils::MakeMaker is updated to latest CPAN version, the following happens.


use ExtUtils::MakeMaker; WriteMakefile(NAME => 'Test');

package Test; 1;

running perl Makefile.PL, gmake test results in error:

to undefined at C:/berrybrew/ line 1199. makefile:862: recipe for target 'pm_to_blib' failed gmake: *** [pm_to_blib] Error 2

Offending section in Makefile is

# --- MakeMaker pm_to_blib section: pm_to_blib : $(FIRST_MAKEFILE) $(TO_INST_PM) $(NOECHO) $(ABSPERLRUN) -MExtUtils::Install -e "pm_to_blib({{@ARGV +}}, '$(INST_LIB)\auto', q[$(PM_FILTER)], '$(PERM_DIR)')" -- \ $(INST_LIB)\ $(NOECHO) $(TOUCH) pm_to_blib

line #862 contains {{@ARGV}}, deleting a pair of braces (changing double to single) fixes the issue (I peeked at Makefile which is produced under Perl 5.26). It's very confusing, why updating to latest ExtUtils::MakeMaker doesn't help, and how 5.24 is functional at all.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
