----------------------------------------------------------------- [Please enter your report here] I have found the following patches are necessary to build perl on UnixWare 7.x.x and OpenServer 5.0.x with both gcc and cc for the platform in question. I have added the changes to get threads for UnixWare 7.1.0. Threads pass all test with the UDK cc, but with gcc-2.95.1 I get an error but when I do the following with gcc-2.95.1... Show quoted text

Thanks. I now applied these patches towards the Perl 5.6 release (in developer/alpha state now). It's not impossible but not certain, either, that these patches will appear in 5.5 (aka 5.005) maintenance releases. -- $jhi++; # http://www.iki.fi/jhi/ # There is this special biologist word we use for 'stable'. # It is 'dead'. -- Jack Cohen

You might want to consider how that patch interacts with the existing Unixware 7 support in the svr4 hints file. Tom -- Tom Hughes (tom@compton.nu) http://www.compton.nu/ ...You are lustworthy.

I'll have to let you people who have access to svr4/svr5/sco boxes to sort out these things. I'm rather good at hacking Configure/hints "blind" but there are limits. -- $jhi++; # http://www.iki.fi/jhi/ # There is this special biologist word we use for 'stable'. # It is 'dead'. -- Jack Cohen

Unfortunately due a terminally damaged root file system I don't have access to a Unixware 7 box at the moment... I suspect it's more just a question of removing the UW 7 stuff from the svr4 hints if we're going to use a new hints file for svr5. Of course if the svr4 hints file has UW7 things that aren't in the svr5 hints then they might need migrating. Tom -- Tom Hughes (tom@compton.nu) http://www.compton.nu/ ... If you really want to know, you won't ask me.

[changes to detect gcc-2.95 and set -fno-strict-aliasing] Thanks, but that's actually not necessary. In 5.005_62 and on, Configure should automatically test for -fno-strict-aliasing.

I started with the old svr4 hints file and modified it to work and find everything. I have not done a diff because the changes were so many. It should be just a remove the UW 7 stuff from svr4. So here is my recommended patch to the svr4.sh file. Thanks, Boyd Gerber gerberb@zenez.com
