[ID 20010208.001] Net::POP3 problem with perl5.6.0

This is a bug report for perl from systemgroup@telenet-ops.be,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.

[Please enter your report here]

when using perl 5.003 (and higher) the module Net::POP3 can be used as follow:


use Net::POP3;
if ($pop = Net::POP3->new($server) {
    #connection established
} else {
   print "no connection\n";

Now in perl 5.6.0, I have to type:

if ($pop = Net::POP3->new($server, Port=>110)) {

If I don't specify the port, it won't work at all. Although the default port *is* 110, I have to specify it.

With friendly regards,

[ID 20001107.006] Problems installing perl5.6.0, perl5.00405 on AIX
Hiya. I'm attempting to install both Perl 5.6 and/or Perl 5.4.5 on an AIX box running AIX 4.1.2. They both compile with no problems: they fail a few tests, but those still result in 99% functionality. What blows up is the install. Perl 5.4.5 reports an out of memory error upon installation, like so: root@appf ***** /netadmin/temp/perl5.004_05 28 % ./perl installperl -n cp perl /usr/local/bin/perl5.00405 chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/perl5.00405 Out of memory!

[ID 20000518.009] Bug/Inconsistency in POP3.pm (libnet) with perl5.6.0
Hi, I have spent a couple of hours tearing my hair out over this, and found an easy work-around... this happened since grabbing perl5.6 and libnet1.0703. The problem: perl code using Net::POP3.pm was failing to connect to the localhost. Examining the logs showed it never tried - running with debug showed the constructor always returned undef. Grabbing the smtp port works fine, as does sunrpc and a couple of other ports. It turns out that the POP3 module attempts to get the port for "pop3" service, where this basically standard Linux 2.2.13 (Redhat 6.1 with a kernel u...

[ID 19991019.004] problems compiling perl5.005_03 on AIX
I am trying to get a working version of perl5.005_03 on a AIX Configuring was not a problem. But when using make, I keep having problems. The first problem occured when using miniperl on pod/pod2text.PL; it resulted in a core dump. Calling it from the prompt solved this problem. The second problem was that ext/Opcode/Makefile.PL would not generate a Makefile. Temporary solved it by using Makefile.old. Here also a core dump.

I've had problems getting 63 installed on OpenBSD 2.6. This seems to be related to the new "File/Glob.pm" module. (Or maybe to "XSLoader.pm", which I hadn't heard about; its docs are sparse at best.)

Another Session ID problem from .net 1.1 to .net 2.0
My application was written with .net 1.1 and now I'm trying to convert to 2.0.  I have a java control that streams data to an aspx page to accomplish multi-select file upload (All works well in 1.1). However, with 2.0 the .aspx page that receives the files cannot locate the user in session.  When I checked the session id it is different between a normal request and the java request, which is generated from a java applet located on the page from the same site. ASPX Snippet: //Set the session parameter    System.Web.SessionState.HttpSessionState session = S...
