Ticket #859 (closed bug: fixed)
'make splint' needs graceful failure message
|Reported by:||jkeenan||Owned by:|
Tonight I tried this command, which was recommended in TT #443:
$ make splint | ack reserved
This was the output I got:
mkdir /splint: Permission denied at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.0/ExtUtils/Command.pm line 259 make: *** [splint] Error 13
My guess is that I have to install some library or application to get splint to work. However, we should have a more graceful error message that tells the user exactly what went wrong and what to do to remedy the situation.
Thank you very much.
