Rakudo on parrot RELEASE_2_11_0-777-gef82f5c fails three files from 'make spectest', and I'm not aware of any Rakudo changes that might have caused it. The issues mentioned in tt#1932 make it quite hard to bisect the problem (at least I haven't been able to).

The test summary is

t/spec/S14-roles/crony.t                                     (Wstat: 256 Tests: 0 Failed: 0)
  Non-zero exit status: 1
  Parse errors: Bad plan.  You planned 4 tests but ran 0.
t/spec/S14-roles/mixin.rakudo                                (Wstat: 256 Tests: 9 Failed: 0)
  Non-zero exit status: 1
  Parse errors: Bad plan.  You planned 23 tests but ran 9.
t/spec/integration/advent2009-day18.rakudo                   (Wstat: 256 Tests: 0 Failed: 0)
  Non-zero exit status: 1
  Parse errors: No plan found in TAP output

at least the last on is a segfault:

Change History

Changed 11 years ago by moritz

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

Turns out the argument checking for named parameters was changed, which caused Rakudo to fail, and to segfault during backtrace generation, or some such.

This is now fixed in Rakudo, so I'm closing this ticket. The segfault still doesn't bode well, but I guess there are more pressing issues right now.
