README.linux - Perl version 5 on Linux systems
This document describes various features of Linux that will affect how
Perl version 5 (hereafter just Perl) is compiled and/or runs.
Experimental Support for Sun Studio Compilers for Linux OS
Sun Microsystems has released a port of their Sun Studio compiliers for
Linux. As of November 2005, only an alpha version has been released.
Until a release of these compilers is made, support for compiling Perl
with these compiler experimental.
Also, some special instructions for building Perl with Sun Studio on
Linux. Following the normal "Configure", you have to run make as fol
"LDLOADLIBS" is an environment variable used by the linker to link mod
ules "/ext" modules to glibc. Currently, that environment variable is
not getting populated by a combination of "Config" entries and "ExtU
til::MakeMaker". While there may be a bug somewhere in Perls configu
ration or "ExtUtil::MakeMaker" causing the problem, the most likely
cause is an incomplete understanding of Sun Studio by this author.
Further investigation is needed to get this working better.
Please report any errors, updates, or suggestions to email@example.com.
