This paragraph identifies and provides an overview of the released files.
This release, identified in 3.2, is a collection of Perl modules that extend the capabilities of the Perl language.
The system is the Perl programming language software. As established by the Perl referenced documents, program modules, such the "File::Where" module, extend the Perl language.
The subroutines in File::Where program module finds the absolute file or dir for a program module, program module repository, relative file, relative directory by searching the directories in the @INC array of directories or an override array of directories. The File::Where program module supercedes the File::PM2File program module.
This document releases File::Where version 0.05 providing a description of the inventory, installation instructions and other information necessary to utilize and track this release.
All file specifications in this SVD use the Unix operating system file specification.

The changes to the previous version are as follows:
Added code to where_pm for the boundary case where
where_pm('File::Where') # subroutine interface 'File::Where'->where_pm('File::Where') # class interface
This bug was discovered because the obsoleted File::PM2File module now uses File::Where for backwards compatibility.
Subject: FAIL Test-Tech-0.18 i586-linux 2.4.22-4tr From: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Thu, 8 Apr 2004 15:09:35 -0300 (ADT) PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl5.8.0 "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/Test/Tech/Tech.t t/Test/Tech/Tech....Can't locate FindBIN.pm Summary of my perl5 (revision 5.0 version 8 subversion 0) configuration: Platform: osname=linux, osvers=2.4.22-4tr, archname=i586-linux
This is capitalization problem. The program module name is 'FindBin' not 'FindBIN' which is part of Perl. Microsoft does not care about capitalization differences while linux does. This error is in the test script automatically generated by
Test::STDmaker and was just introduced when moved test script libraries from
tlib to the directory of the test script. Repaired
Test::STDmaker and regenerated the distribution.

# Test 19 got: '/private/var/cpanplus/5.8.3/build/File-Where-0.03/blib/lib/File/Where.pm' (t/File/where.t at line 277)
# Expected: '/private/var/cpanplus/5.8.3/build/File-Where-0.03/lib/File/Where.pm'
If doing a target site install, the install software going to place the
blib directory up front in @INC Changed the file test to locate the include directory with high probability of having the first
File::Where in the include path in determining the expected value.
Really does not cheapen test by doing a quasi where search where actual does the same. The object of the test to validate boundary condition where the class, 'File::Where', is the same as the program module 'File::Where that the 'where' subroutine/method is locating. There are plenty of successful test where
where finds directories and files as expected.

This installation requires that the installation site has the Perl programming language installed. There are no other additional requirements or tailoring needed of configurations files, adaptation data or other software needed for this installation particular to any installation site.
There are no related documents needed for the installation and test of this release.
Instructions for installation, installation tests and installation support are as follows:
To installed the release file, use the CPAN module pr PPM module in the Perl release or the INSTALL.PL script at the following web site:
Follow the instructions for the the chosen installation software.
If all else fails, the file may be manually installed. Enter one of the following repositories in a web browser:
Right click on 'File-Where-0.05.tar.gz' and download to a temporary installation directory. Enter the following where $make is 'nmake' for microsoft windows; otherwise 'make'.
gunzip File-Where-0.05.tar.gz tar -xf File-Where-0.05.tar perl Makefile.PL $make test $make install
On Microsoft operating system, nmake, tar, and gunzip must be in the exeuction path. If tar and gunzip are not install, download and install unxutils from
Most Perl installation software will run the following test script(s) as part of the installation:
