[ID 20010227.005] ExtUtils::Install fails silently when disk fills up
Message ID:
200102272244.f1RMiiL01923@erik.topica.com

This is a bug report for perl from alex@get.topica.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

ExtUtils::Install does not check the return value of File::Copy::copy,
which could easily fail (full disk). This results in potential silent
failures.

[Please do not change anything below this line]
