[ID 20000309.019] Not OK: perl v5.6.0 +v5.6.0-RC1 onIP27-irix-thread 6.5 (UNINSTALLED)
Message ID:

This is a build failure report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.27 running under perl v5.6.0.

[Please enter your report here]

I get very inconsistent test results from IRIX 6.5. (uname -R
says "6.5 6.5.5.m") with -Duse64bitall (without that I get
an almost 100% test, modulo the one freak safe1 failure).

This is what "./perl harness" thinks.  The lib/io_linenum.t
run separately is happy as a clam.  The lib/thread.t failure
is the known "disencouragement" failure.  Do we really want
such test failures in the final 5.6.0?

Failed Test  Status Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of failed
lib/io_linenum.   0    11    12   12 100.00%  1-12
lib/thread.t                 21    1   4.76%  19
4 tests and 34 subtests skipped.
Failed 2/236 test scripts, 99.15% okay. 13/10408 subtests failed, 99.88% okay.

But under "make test" the results are very different.
One pragma/warnings fails and io_dir apparently dumps core.


# Check runtime scope of pragma
use warnings FATAL => 'uninitialized' ;
    no warnings ;
    my $b ; chop $b ;
my $b ; chop $b ;
print STDERR "The End.\n" ;
Use of uninitialized value in scalar chop at - line 8.

FAILED at test 98
lib/io_dir...........FAILED at test 0
# This is a KNOWN FAILURE, and one of the reasons why threading
# is still an experimental feature.  It is here to stop people
# from deploying threads in production. ;-)
FAILED at test 19
