If you put this Perl statement in your test scripts it will cause problems.
Any calls to Squish functions such as
waitForObject() that follow this statement will cause script errors such as:
Can't exec waitForObject: No such file or directory
By default the Perl
Shell module turns calls to unknown Perl functions into executions of shell commands. This is done by the use of Perl's
AUTOLOAD feature. Unfortunately, Squish also uses Perl's
AUTOLOAD feature, and so there is a conflict.
Shell module can be passed a specific list of commands to export. When such a list is given, the
Shell module does not use (or need to use) the
AUTOLOAD feature, and so there is no longer any conflict with Squish. Here is an example that shows how to select the
mkdir commands in a way that won't cause any problems:
