TimeDate 2.30 - Bug in test-codeby Skeeve (Parson)
|on Jan 10, 2020 at 09:20 UTC||Need Help??|
Skeeve has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Yesterday I stumbled across a bug in https://metacpan.org/release/TimeDate.
One of the modules I install in a docker image is depending on this module but it failed to install.
Reason given was
Redundant argument in printf at t/date.t line 180.
Looking at that line printf "%-40s\t%s\n", $_,$x,"\n"; it's clear that the ,"\n" is the redundant part.
Besides mailing the author (who didn't provide any contribution information), what could one do to fix this issue?
For the time being I force-install the module. Better would be, I guess, to apply a diff.
