BUG: pedigree module in texlive-2019.190626-x86_64-4 broken


Hello,

pedigree - create a TeX file for pedigree from a csv file is broken on Slackware-current64. This module is in package texlive-2019.190626-x86_64-4

root@p:~# pedigree
Can't locate Pedigree.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Pedigree module) (@INC contains: //texmf-dist/scripts/pedigree-perl /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5) at /usr/bin/pedigree line 124.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/pedigree line 124.

and on user the same result:

$ pedigree
Can't locate Pedigree.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Pedigree module) (@INC contains: //texmf-dist/scripts/pedigree-perl /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5) at /usr/bin/pedigree line 124.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/pedigree line 124.


Line 124 on file pedigree in /usr/bin need to be changed

From:

Code:
use Pedigree
To :

Code:
use lib '/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/pedigree-perl/Pedigree';
Regards,

It's probably a feature in the perl slackbuild that causes this, (why would it search -> @INC contains: '//texmf-dist/scripts/pedigree-perl')

I think the issue is with the command "kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT" that isn't able to return the correct path, "/usr/share", and returns instead "/" (and that is included in @INC later in pedigree.pl): IMHO the just-fix-it-I-dont-care solution should be to run a sed like that in the packaged texlive
Code:
sed -i 's|`kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`|"/usr/share/"|' $PKG/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/*/*.pl
but it's just a workaround, because the thing to actually fix should be kpsewhich.
maybe the texlive maintainer on SBo, Johannes, could have a better fix...

According to https://tug.org/texinfohtml/kpathsea.html
Quote:
Finally, it sets the environment variables SELFAUTOLOC, SELFAUTODIR and SELFAUTOPARENT to the location, parent and grandparent directory of the executable, removing . and .. path elements and resolving symbolic links. These are used in the default configuration file to allow people to invoke TeX from anywhere. You can use ‘kpsewhich --expand-var=\$SELFAUTOLOC’, etc., to see the values.
And on my machine (running 14.2 with texlive from SBo):
Code:
$ which kpsewhich
/usr/bin/kpsewhich
$ kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOLOC
/usr/bin
$ kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTODIR
/usr
$ kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT
/
So it appears to me kpsewhich is working correctly. Maybe the pedigree perl file has a bug? I don't know.

FYI:
Code:
$ grep "kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT" /usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/*/*.pl                      
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/cjk-gs-integrate/cjk-gs-integrate.pl:    chomp(my $foo = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`);
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/crossrefware/bbl2bib.pl:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/crossrefware/bibdoiadd.pl:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/crossrefware/bibmradd.pl:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/crossrefware/biburl2doi.pl:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/crossrefware/bibzbladd.pl:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/crossrefware/ltx2crossrefxml.pl:     chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/pedigree-perl/pedigree.pl:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root

The idea on that in the buildscript is, that binaries/links from texlive may reside in /usr/bin and not in /usr/share/texmf-dist/bin.
It was a pain at least for me, that TeTeX had that extra PATH added bei profile.sh which e.g. is causing build issues on SBo when builders didn't correctly "su -". That feels like putting e.g. named to /opt/bin to me ;-)

So i'll see what i can do for pedigree, i have no immediate optimal fix. Maybe poking in kpsewhich.

It looks like there's several scripts in /usr/bin that will have the same problem:

Code:
jbhansen@febtober:~$ grep -R "kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT" /usr/bin/
/usr/bin/bbl2bib:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/bin/biburl2doi:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/bin/ltx2crossrefxml:     chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/bin/bibzbladd:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/bin/bibdoiadd:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/bin/bibmradd:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
/usr/bin/pedigree:    chomp(my $TLMaster = `kpsewhich -var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT`); # TL root
I tried to find a list of variables supported by kpsewhich, to see if any had "/usr/share" output, but I came up blank (although, I don't really use texlive, so my knowledge is limited). If you can't find a kpsewhich variable for /usr/share, you may want to use ponce's sed line on the above scripts.

From the texlive mailinglist i was told, that it's a fail from the perl-script maintainer(which is informed now),
and that a fix like ponce suggested would do it.
Hopefully the maintainer fixes his scripts, so it will be automatically fixed here with the next release.

Should be fixed now, you may mark the thread as solved.
