Ticket #1930 (new bug)
t/op/number.t: one test fails under --optimize on Darwin/PPC
|Reported by:||jkeenan||Owned by:|
perl Configure.pl --optimize
on Darwin/PPC, I got the following test failure, which I do not get when I configure without optimization:
t/op/number.t .. 1..126 ... not ok 50 - mod_n # Have: -0 # Want: 0
Note: I have rarely configured with --optimize on this platform, so I don't know whether this test failure has always been there or when it appeared. (I was working on a different ticket where I needed to see what difference --optimize made in %PConfig.)
Given what some would consider the antiquity of this platform, this is hardly a deal-breaker. Still, a bug is a bug, and it would be worthwhile if someone could speculate on why optimization made this bug manifest and how it might be fixed.
Thank you very much.
