perl test suite bug #15939
Created by email@example.com
The perl test suite doesn't accurately test copying of permission
lib/File/Copy ................................................. # Failed test 'Permission bits set correctly'
It seems to think that 'other' should have write permission
If the test suite is running on a file system with ACL's,
Ishtar:perl/perl-5.24/lib/File> lsacl .
(the 1st ACL, from the '[' to the '/' is the acl on the directory,
Ishtar:perl/perl-5.24/lib/File> ll file
Changing both acls on dir 'test':
Now touch creates file w/expected permissions:
Note, linux 'cp' shows the same behavior (write bit turned off
Ishtar:perl/perl-5.24/lib/File> /usr/bin/cp file2 file3
But in dir w/all bits defaulted to on for 'other', (in dir test):
Ishtar:perl/perl-5.24/lib/File> /usr/bin/cp file2 test/file3
Now it works.
Hopefully perl not setting perms-bits to '000' isn't
FWIW, 'lsacl' is a bash script to show file acl's in the
Seems my initial report picked up a different libperl than the one
