Description Jody McIntyre 2001-12-17 18:01:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.6+) Gecko/20011202

Description of problem:
The following line of perl does not work:
use Getopt::Long qw(:oonfig permute);

According to perldoc Getopt::Long, this should use the module and turn on
the "permute" config option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -e 'use Getopt::Long qw(:config permute);'

Actual Results:  
"config" is not defined in %Getopt::Long::EXPORT_TAGS at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/Exporter/Heavy.pm line 75
        Exporter::heavy_export('Getopt::Long', 'main', ':config',
'permute') called at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/Exporter.pm line 45
        Exporter::import(undef, 'Getopt::Long', ':config', 'permute')
called at -e line 1
        main::BEGIN() called at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/Getopt/Long.pm line 1
        require 0 called at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/Getopt/Long.pm line 1
"permute" is not exported by the Getopt::Long module at -e line 1
Can't continue after import errors at -e line 1
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

Expected Results:  No output.

Additional info:

Suggested fix: update to perl 5.6.1.

Fixed in rawhide 5.6.1 (SRPM should build in 7.2 if interested in testing further)
