in reply to CPAN Testers makefile problem

Could you provide a link to the makefile in question or a clue about what module it's part of? What's on line 496?

My guess is that the character encoding of the Makefile does not match the character encoding expected by make (but I don't know what either of those encodings are).

    I asked for the makefile to a few of the testers, but couldn't get it. But now that you say it... checked the makefile generated on my system and found out the problem. What the heck. All because of the code generating META.yaml, with my name:

    494: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'license: ~' >> META_new.yml 495: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'author: ' >> META_new.yml 496: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) ' - Alberto Simões <>' > +> META_new.yml 497: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'generated_by: ExtUtils::MakeMake +r version 6.44' >> META_new.yml 498: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'distribution_type: module' >> META_ne +w.yml
    And, yes, this fails for just a few systems (mainly VMS and Solaris). Solved, in any case. I need to change my name.

      Five Makefile.PL edited. Five Changes files edited. Five .pm files edited. Five $VERSION variables bumped by 0.01. Five make dists. Five modules uploads.

      Its actually a bug in MakeMaker (similar bug happened before for PPM target)
