Description Lukas Zachar 2013-06-12 10:34:57 EDT
Description of problem:

Perl module File::Spec::VMS is not usable on Fedora as no package provides its requirement of VMS::Filespec.

# yum provides 'perl(VMS::Filespec)'
No matches found


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-PathTools-3.40-1.fc19.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -e 'use File::Spec::VMS'
2.
3.

Actual results:
Can't locate VMS/Filespec.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/File/Spec/VMS.pm line 13.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/File/Spec/VMS.pm line 13.

Expected results:
no such error

Additional info:
Line 13: 'use VMS::Filespec;'
Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2013-06-14 04:06:50 EDT
It's not possible to use File::Spec::VMS without VMS::Filespec, and VMS::Filespec is not installed on Linux because it depends on VMS native code. (There is a pure-Perl implementation of VMS::Filespec, but it's not production-ready as is disabled by upstream (vms/ext/Filespec.pm).)

Also File::Spec documentation states:

> Since some modules (like VMS) make use of facilities available
> only under that OS, it may not be possible to load all modules under all
> operating systems.

Currently, only the File::Spec::VMS is not possible to use on Linux. Thus I'm going to resolve this issue by removing File::Spec::VMS from the distribution.
