in reply to Re^4: Math::Pari patch for 5.10.0
in thread Math::Pari patch for 5.10.0

On my perl-5.10 I had Test-Harness-2.64. I updated to version 3.10, and Math-Pari still builds and tests flawlessly for me.

I investigated further, here's my report:

With perl5.8.8 make test runs fine, with 5.10.0 (and blead) it doesn't. Both perls use the same version of ExtUtils::Command::MM (6.44) and Test::Harness (3.10). Furthermore I isolated the test file which seem to cause this strange error, it's t/55_objets.t (sic!). This test file uses test_eng/, which loads pari-2.1.7/src/test/32/objets (at least on my system). I reduced this file to

realprecision = 38 significant digits echo = 1 (on) ? truncate(1.7,&e) 1 ? \p57 realprecision = 57 significant digits ? length(divisors(1000)) 16 ? \q

Now we run the t/5_objets.t test file:

$ PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /opt/perl-33445/bin/perl5.11.0 "-MExtUtils::Comman +d::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/55_objets.t t/55_objets...... All 3 subtests passed Test Summary Report ------------------- Files=1, Tests=3, 0 wallclock secs ( 0.00 usr 0.00 sys + 0.04 cusr + 0.02 csys = 0.06 CPU) Result: FAIL Failed 1/1 test programs. 0/3 subtests failed.
That's all for today, maybe it could help the Math::Pari people to find the bug.
