Switch to Pod::Parser instead of Pod::Text
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #279251 +++
I am cloning this bug because it now affects Fedora 9 without adding any third party packages. The original bug expired because Fedora 7 End-of-Life.
Description of problem:
Pod::Text no longer derives from Pod::Parser so the method 'interpolate' does
not exist. As near as I can tell, this is the only method used in cpan2rpm, so
Pod::Text can be changed to Pod::Parser in the two places it appears. This is
what I did locally and it now works for me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run cpan2rpm for some module (any will do...)
-- module: /var/cache/cpan/build/libwww-perl-5.808-baHtIL --
Can't locate object method "interpolate" via package "Pod::Text" at
/usr/bin/cpan2rpm line 522.
-- Done --
No failure from above.
I have added a patch. It works for me...
changed version to "9"
The last release of cpan2rpm was in 2005. I suggest using cpanspec.
Ok, can we either get rid of the package or fix it though?
It can be build and possibly some people still use it.
Thougths from perl-sig?
