Test scripts

[ #5576 ]
Note to $self: either include a complete test script or don't include one at all.

I see that my latest release of Net::SCP::Expect is failing tests left and right, including Solaris. That's interesting, since it's Solaris that it was developed on.

I can only guess this is because my test script isn't really complete. I wanted to get this version out the door, though, because of that major bug that Ruban Phukan found (and jdavidb fixed).

Anyway, ignore the cpan test results until you see an actual bug report.

  • I upgraded Net::SCP::Expect today and it passed all tests and seemed to copy large files fine. However, I just checked and realized CPAN.pm didn't install it because it failed the tests. I didn't notice because I upgraded a bunch of modules at once and didn't watch while they built.

    Looks like the test is looking for something called Term::ReadPassword. You could add that into the PREREQ_PM of the Makefile.PL and it would show up automatically (for me, at least). :) Of course, since it's only a prereq

    • Looks like the test is looking for something called Term::ReadPassword.

(I'd vote yes so CPAN.pm can handle it. Besides, people can always use a few extra modules; it helps us learn about new things on CPAN we never knew about.)

      Oh, drat, I should have put a warning about that in the Makefile.PL file. Next relea
