Config::Trivial 0.70 "Wet Bank Holiday"

[ #33373 ]

At the end of a miserable wet Bank Holiday, I put Config::Trivial 0.70 up onto CPAN. However it's not really a lot different from the earlier 0.60 version. I made some minor tweaks to the build process but that's about all.

The problem is that I planned to do stuff to it but I was distracted over the weekend by my partner who was recovering from a cold and was not happy with the cold and wet weather. She is better now so I'm hoping to sneak out a 0.71 version with the actual things in it I had originally planned...

PS. Does anyone still use Perl 5.6.x, I've not seen test results for pre 5.8 platforms for ages.

  • PS. Does anyone still use Perl 5.6.x, I've not seen test results for pre 5.8 platforms for ages.

    There are at least one CPAN tester (david) running perl 5.6.2.

    • The people doing CPAN Testers are not representative of all Perl users as a set.

      There's a whole bunch of people using older servers with older Perls out there.

      • That's what I thought. Our production boxen at work still use 5.6.1... Being production makes them harder to use a testing platforms...

        I suppose I'll have to build and install a local 5.6.2 on my Debian Lenny box at home.

        -- "It's not magic, it's work..."
  • I test everything on 5.6.2. I try to do so within a couple of days of the module being uploaded to the PAUSE, and email the author with FAIL and UNKNOWN results. PASS results only go to the cpan-testers list.

    Reasons I might not test your module are if it has a pre-requisite that fails its tests, or another module I was testing crashed my testing script. I have a machine with a guest account and perl 5.6.2 on it if you want to test for yourself. Email me for the details.

    • Thanks for the offer but I should download and install a /usr/local/bin copy of 5.6.2, then I can test things properly myself. I was just surprised that when I looked at my test results, I've not seen much 5.6.x activity in a while.

      -- "It's not magic, it's work..."
  • The project I just joined is using 5.6.0 actually. In the re-write I hope to get them up to the 5.8 series.
