Subject: Trying to build 2.09 on WinNT, built ok but failed tests
Date: Jan 8 1998 5:18AM
I'm new to the list and to SybPerl, and am trying to build vers 2.09 on
WinNT 4.0 (SP3) on an Intel machine.
I'm using MS VC++ 5.0.
I successfully installed Perl from 'perl5.00402-bindist04-bc.tar' and it
I have Open Client installed.
I edited CONFIG.
I ran 'perl Makefile.PL' and that seemed to work (a lot of warnings about
I ran 'nmake' and it seemed to complete without errors.
So far, so good.
I edited PWD and put in my sa password and server name. And I verified that
these work from this machine using SQL Advantage.
Then, I tried 'nmake test'. And here, it failed.
The begining of the output looks like this:
C:\perl\bin\perl -Mblib -Ic:\perl\lib -Ic:\perl\lib -e "use
s qw(&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;" t\bcp.t
t\bcp...............Use of uninitialized value at
b/Sybase/BCP.pm line 511, chunk 1.
Sybase error: Attempt to bulk-copy a NULL value into Server column 1, which
not accept NULL values.
Use of uninitialized value at C:/sybperl-2.09/BCP/../blib/lib/Sybase/BCP.pm
512, chunk 1.
In the end, it says that 5 of 9 subtests failed.
My question is, should this test have worked??
If so, I'd appreciate any suggestions you can give for getting this install
Thanks for any info or advice.
BTW, I just signed up on the list and didn't get a confirmation back, so
please CC me on any response.
