  • I've tried test COSIMO/Win32-API-0.46.tar.gz in the CPAN shell on the two platforms I have available, and it kind of works... but both seem to fall over a secundary test somewhere. The same one.
    1. ActivePerl 5.8.8 build 817 (Mar 20 2006) + MinGW gcc 3.2.3. ActivePerl depends on ActivePerl::Config to dynamically override settings in Config.

      \blib\lib', '..\blib\arch')" t/*.t

    • Hi Bart, this is interesting. Thanks for your time.

      • ActivePerl 5.8.8 + Gcc

        AFAIK, ActivePerl comes compiled by MSVC6, which is cl.exe version 12, but you are using with gcc. Correct?

        In the Callback tests, which btw fail unless you have MSVC6, I needed a way to check the compiler and I used $Config{ccname} and $Config{ccversion} instead of only using $Config{cc}, because I only must distinguish between MSVC 6 and 7+.

        Can you report your cc, ccname and ccversion variables? Or better, file a bug on
