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 follows:
LDLOADLIBS is an environment variable used by the linker to link modules
/ext modules to glibc. Currently, that environment variable is not getting
populated by a combination of Config entries and ExtUtil::MakeMaker.
While there may be a bug somewhere in Perl's configuration 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.
