This version builds on AIX 18.104.22.168, but it hangs up on the first test, which is a simple spawn of the perl -v command. I have communicated with the author about this problem and am hoping for a resolution.
This is how it hangs up:
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /pcom/perl/perl-5.8.4/bin/perl "-Iblib/lib" "-Iblib/arch" test.pl
If you look at test.pl, you'll see that it's hanging up at this line:
my $exp = Expect->spawn("$Perl -v");
I debugged the module and found that it is hanging up at line 124 in
Expect.pm. This is the line of code:
my $errstatus = sysread(STAT_RDR, $errno, 256);
I have seen other complaints about either test failures or hang ups
on bulletin boards. It seems a lot of people are having this problem, and not just on AIX.
