  • You either need the block or to pass skip_all => $reason to plan(). Test::More relies on a particularity of Perl 5 control flow to stop executing the block in which you call skip(). If you're not in a block, Perl gets all wobbly.

    • I managed to press the wrong reply button - there's a reply to your comment below.
  • Thanks for the tip. I honestly can't recall why I wrote the tests without the skip blocks in the first place - I suspect it to have been a brain fart. Conveniently hidden by the tests passing on my 5.8.8. Evidently some versions or distributions of Perl get wobblier than others.
