without too much hope for an helping hand as this list seems to be
very quiet but I try nevertheless. :-)
I succeeded in compiling pyperl on Fedora Core 2 . After that I
tried running the test suite. 8 failing tests (after patching test.py
so that they get executed at all).
I'm down to 7 now (Python error messages seem to have changed since
2001, patched apply.py accordingly).
Now I am stuck after looking at eval.py. There is a problem that
output gets lost if a program is executed via os.popen and pyperl is
used. Attached is a very small testcase for that.
I am very interested in getting pyperl running again with newer
versions of Python (2.3+) and Perl (5.8+). Is there anyone on the list
that knows a bit more about C and pyperl who wants to help me with
that? Mentoring would be nice, too.
If it helps I can provide a new pyperl package with all patches I have
 I got only three warnings that _POSIX_C_SOURCE is being redefined.
That seems to be a conflict in /usr/include/sys/types.h and
testfile = 'callee.py'
pipe = os.popen('"%s" "%s"' % (sys.executable, testfile))
line = pipe.readline()
if line == '':
result = perl.eval("""
