Instead of using force, why don't you fix the actual test and send a patch?

Here is often how I check if a binary is available and executable (usually in my Makefile.PL files, but I digress... here's one example, and another):

use strict; use warnings; use Test::More; my $is_win = $^O =~ /MSWin/; my ($sep, $bin) = $is_win ? (';', 'perl.exe') : (':', 'perl'); my $perl_available = grep { -x "$_/$bin" } split /$sep/, $ENV{PATH}; ok $perl_available, "perl binary was found and is executable"; done_testing();

Update: Modified code to work on both Windows and Unixy platforms.

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.
