Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66231
"perl -v" no longer works in pipes
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
The behavior of "perl -v" has changed (in last night's rawhide update)
Before perl-5.8.0-16 it was possible to test the version of
perl with: perl -v | fgrep 'v5.'
Now, with perl-5.8.0-16 the output of "perl -v" is no longer
accessible via a pipe.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -v | cat
produces no output
same output as "perl -v"
Multiple gnome2 configure scripts are failing because of this.
Including: intltool and bonobo-activation
I believe this is fixed now.
Yes, verified fixed in perl-5.8.0-19. Thx.
