Subject: perl-modules: time summary from Benchmark contains extra space
Date: Fri, 22 Aug 2008 01:24:43 +0000
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: perl-modules
Version: 5.10.0-13
Severity: minor
Tags: upstream

In Benchmark, the default style for timestr is %5.2f.  However, when
running tests using prove (which indirectly uses Benchmark), this
produces an extra space before the parenthesis:

  Files=1, Tests=2,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.02 cusr +  0.00 csys =  0.02 CPU)

This looks odd and unbalanced.
