That did not work. Devel::Cover unsurprisingly needs access to the symbols during both build and run time. Tried it with a 5.8.8 because that's my existing installation with lots of modules I don't care to reinstall.

Instead I patched the current installation by building a Perl 5.8.8 with the exported symbols, and then:

cp perl58.dll \strawberry-perl\perl\bin\ cp lib\CORE\libperl58.a \strawberry-perl\perl\lib\CORE\

This is clearly a hack, not a long-term solution.

What that solution is I don't know. But I imagine either

  • officially promote those symbols to be public, since such an important module as Devel::Cover rely on them, or;
  • create an interface to allow Devel::Cover to instrument/inspect the internals the way it clearly needs to do to work its magic.

Damn, that was a lot of yak shaving to start doing interesting things!

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
