The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.

Changes for version 20231003.0

  • Windows now matches other platforms in that a child calling exit(N) causes result() to return N and full_result() to return N << 8. On Windows, before this change, result() was returning N >> 8, and full_result() was returning N. Programs having workarounds for this may need to condition those workarounds on $IPC::Run::VERSION.
  • #157 - On Windows, avoid hang under IPCRUNDEBUG.
  • Refresh "cpanfile" from Makefile.PL, to allow use on Windows.
  • #163 - Normalize shebangs to /usr/bin/perl
  • Fix or skip all tests recently seen to fail on Windows.
  • Include t/result.t in releases.
  • #168 - Make full_result() and result() Windows behavior match non-Windows.
