RE: [perl #130652] fail to return true loading .pm with <cr> EOL
Message ID:
Sure, see attached.

For some reason my Notepad++ "EOL Conversion" was set to Macintosh <CR> and this is what caused the bug (on a PC).

Setting the EOL to either Unix <LF> or Windows <CR><LF> fixed it.

Could you attach to this ticket (or attach to your email response) a small file created with Notepad that demonstrates this problem?

That will enable a better diagnosis of the problem.

Thank you very much.
