Description Petr Pisar 2011-11-15 14:56:20 UTC
Using this module on Perl 5.14.2 results in:

> callchecker0.h:7:3: error: #error this callchecker0.h is for Perl 5.14.1 only

This is because this package stores and compare Perl version at build-time. This is intentional behavior and this package must be recompiled for Perl 5.14.2

F17--16 affected.

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2011-11-15 15:05:30 UTC
To automate this dependency, perl should Provide: PERL_EXACT() symbol and the few packages like this one could depend on ti then. In contrast to PERL_COMPAT(), PERL_EXACT() would exist in one instance only.
