XML::Parser descrip.mms bug
Message ID:
Let me preface this report by saying that I do not know how any of this

I downloaded the XML::Paser module from CPAN and did "perl".
When I ran MMS, I got:

agent_system$ mms

%DCL-W-TKNOVF, command element is too long - shorten
 \PERL_ROOT:[000000]PERL.EXE -E "print ' [.blib.lib.XML]
[.Parser.encodings]iso-8859-4.enc [.blib.lib.XML.Parser.
encodings]iso-8859-4.enc [.Parser.encodings]x-euc-jp-jisx0221.enc
[.blib.lib.XML.Parser.encodings]x-euc-jp-jisx0221.enc'" >
%MMS-F-ABORT, For target PM_TO_BLIB.TS, CLI returned abort status:
-CLI-W-TKNOVF, command element is too long - shorten

So I put the references on their own line and tried again:

CC/DECC /Include=[]/Standard=Relaxed_ANSI/Prefix=All/Obj=.obj
=(perl_root:[lib.VMS_AXP.5_8_0.CORE])/NoList  EXPAT.c

          hold = SvPV(ERRSV, len);
%CC-W-PTRMISMATCH1, In this statement, the referenced type of the pointer
value "&len" is "int", which is not compatible with "unsig
ned int" because they differ by signed/unsigned attribute.
at line number 1029 in file
%MMS-F-ABORT, For target EXPAT.OBJ, CLI returned abort status: %X10B91260.

I am, of course, loath to hunt this down in the source.  Sigh.
I see now that this module was incorporated into Craig's fine 5.6 distro,
but it doesn't build either.  Double sigh.
