in thread Immediately writing the results of search-and-replace

G'day haukex,

I hadn't used File::Replace previously, so I thought I'd give it a go; unfortunately it failed during testing. I raised an issue: "t/11_chmod.t fails on Cygwin v5.36.0".

    Thanks very much, I'll look into this as soon as I can! The module used to have perfect tests on CPAN Testers, but unfortunately ever since I introduced File::Replace::Inplace, there have been spurious test failures. I hope this is one of those cases, and I think you'd be ok to force install the module anyway, the core functionality is quite well tested.

      There's no real urgency for me on this. I was just curious. I'll await the next version rather than forcing an install.

      I am a CPAN tester. The process didn't get far enough for a report to be generated: that may have been due to cpan hanging (as I indicated in the issue). It may be that others hit the same problem but didn't raise an issue. I note that there are no entries at all in the "cygwin" column of "CPAN Testers Matrix: File-Replace 0.14 (latest distribution)".

      Unless you have a Cygwin installation for testing, I'd be happy to help with that.

      I'd suggest moving further discussion from this OT sub-thread to a new topic.
