Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

As best as I recall, Terminal> portion is supposed to be printed on screen for me to read, not taken as argument :/

Anyone encounter this issue running 5.14.1 using the latest modules?

I hate being special :)

    This is very strange indeed.

    Did it work before you updated?

    Why do you have a $ command line prompt? Are you using MSWin32 Perl from inside Cygwin or some other UNIX-a-like environment like Interix (SUA)?

    More details like this would be appreciated

      IIRC, it didn't, but I didn't really notice since I didn't have need for an interactive session (cpanp i module mostly just works) since I built it on 2011-08-10

      cpan works, prompts me all normal like :)

      Why do you have a $ command line prompt? Are you using MSWin32 Perl from inside Cygwin or some other UNIX-a-like environment like Interix (SUA)?

      Nothing like that, its just my prompt :) cmd.exe prompt $$$S

      More details like this would be appreciated

      Such as? You can see perl -V here, only thing different in that version from this version, was addition of -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ which caused different problem, but cpanp prompted.

      Ok, here is another fun fact, the perl debugger (which I never use) won't start up either (perl -de 42) it goes into some kind of infinite loop while eating memory

      All test suites pass, and these are the only hiccups I could find.

      Actually, it reminds me of Faulting application perl.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module msvcrt.dll, version 7.0.2600.1106, fault address 0x0003334c. but I hope its not something like that again.

        The only commonality between cpanp in interactive mode and the debugger is that both use Term::ReadLine

        You can disable Term::ReadLine in the debugger with:

        set PERLDB_OPTS="ReadLine 0" perl -de 42

        Assuming that works then Term::ReadLine is at fault.

    I finally figured it out

    I had a D:\dev\tty directory

    Term::ReadLine, despite being on win32, checked for /dev/tty, which exists

    Hahahahahahahahaha
