CPANDB Tricks: Tarballs that fail under Win32

[ #39255 ]

OK, this isn't a CPANDB trick as such.

But the build process in CPANDB::Generator now reports tarballs that fail to extract. The list is just short enough that I can past it below.

Many are the sort of random stuff that you'd expect, but a couple stand out for me, especially INGY/YAML-0.39.tar.gz?

  • I see I'm in the list here. Could you tell me how Bot-Applebot-0.01.tar.gz fails to extract under Windows so that I could fix it? Thanks!
  • Hi Adam

    I just downloaded Module-Metadata-Changes-1.04.tgz from CPAN central, and unpacked it successfully with both GNU's tar and 7z.

    I'm sure hoping you had a transient error on your machine.

    • Hi Adam

      Ahh. Now I see.

      You didn't really mean they 'fail to extract'.

      You meant, in my case, either:

      1) The files t/Changes and t/CHANGES are different under Unix, but the same under Windows, in which case the MANIFEST check produces an error, or

      2) make test produces an error, because I had used $ENV{'HOME'} instead of using File::HomeDir->my_home.

      Either way, $many x $thanx for exposing not 1 but 2 problems with my distro.

      CPAN here we come!

      Ron

      • Nope, they literally failed to Archive::Extract.

        But then you have a duplicate file in your tarballs (Changes and CHANGES are the same file) so that's the error that probably happened.
