Re: net::dns

cpanplus is extraordinarily chatty, but it does often work. The reason it can't find cpanp-run-perl is because we don't define a symbol to it and we can't define a symbol because on VMS the minus sign is an operator.

I did get Net::DNS to install this way (despite the warnings) but it installed the pure Perl version because it has a very Unix-specific method for determining if there is a C compiler.

You can force it to build the XS version by doing

$ perl Makefile.PL --xs
$ mms
$ mms install

Re: net::dns

Hi, thanks for the answer.

I have installed the missing modules to satisfy dependencies of Net::DNS.

After I've tried to install Net-DNS-0.66 giving the commands:
$ perl Makefile.PL --xs (I obtain "looks good" from check if the kit is complete)
$ mmk
during mmk process I obtain the first error in the attachment.


Instead if I ignore the --xs option for link to the libresolv library, I obtain during mmk test the second error in the attachment.

Ideas?

Re: net::dns

I would just change the line

#define MAXDNAME 1010

to

#ifndef MAXDNAME
#define MAXDNAME 1010
#endif

and you might report to the module author that he shouldn't blindly redefine macros defined in standard headers.

Re: net::dns

Hi

Ok, thanks. Now the mmk works but I still have problems during mmk test.
I obtain the error in the attachment and so the process stops before running tests.

Re: net::dns

Actually the output you posted shows that all tests except one passed. The one that didn't pass checks the version numbers of the module's own files, which is really a packaging issue and shouldn't ordinarily affect a programmer who just wants to use the module. And that particular test script (00-version.t) is not portably written -- I would just ignore it and go ahead and install the module. There's a problem with one of 32 test scripts, not necessarily with the module itself.
