Why is Errno.pm on CPAN

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Peter Makholm, Nov 15, 2007.

  1. Is there any good reason to have Errno.pm at CPAN as an ordinary
    module and not just part of core?

    Both the cpan version and the core version tests that the Config.pm
    the module was build with and used with is compatible. But this means
    that the following steps breaks you perl installation at least on
    linux:

    1. install perl

    2. install Errno.pm from CPAN

    3. upgrade linux kernel

    4. reinstall perl


    The version check it self is sane and probably the best portable
    check, but at least on linux it is a bit to strong.

    But why would you install Errno from CPAN?
