NAMEperldgux - Perl under DG/UX.
SYNOPSISOne can read this document in the following formats:
man perldgux view perl perldgux explorer perldgux.html info perldgux
DESCRIPTIONPerl 5.7/8.x for DG/UX ix86 R4.20MU0x
BUILDING PERL ON DG/UX
Non-threaded Perl on DG/UXJust run ./Configure script from the top directory. Then give ``make'' to compile.
Threaded Perl on DG/UXIf you are using as compiler GCC-2.95.x rev(DG/UX) an easy solution for configuring perl in your DG/UX machine is to run the command:
./Configure -Dusethreads -Duseithreads -Dusedevel -des
This will automatically accept all the defaults and in particular /usr/local/ as installation directory. Note that GCC-2.95.x rev(DG/UX) knows the switch -pthread which allows it to link correctly DG/UX's -lthread library.
If you want to change the installation directory or have a standard DG/UX with C compiler GCC-2.7.2.x then you have no choice than to do an interactive build by issuing the command:
./Configure -Dusethreads -Duseithreads
In particular with GCC-2.7.2.x accept all the defaults and *watch* out for the message:
Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? [ -pthread]
Instead of -pthread put here -lthread. CGCC-2.7.2.x that comes with the DG/UX OS does NOT know the -pthread switch. So your build will fail if you choose the defaults. After configuration is done correctly give ``make'' to compile.
Testing Perl on DG/UXIssuing a ``make test'' will run all the tests. If the test lib/ftmp-security gives you as a result something like
lib/ftmp-security....File::Temp::_gettemp: Parent directory (/tmp/) is not safe (sticky bit not set when world writable?) at lib/ftmp-security.t line 100
don't panic and just set the sticky bit in your /tmp directory by doing the following as root:
cd / chmod +t /tmp (=set the sticky bit to /tmp).
Installing the built perl on DG/UXRun the command ``make install''
