NAME

perluts - Perl under UTS  

SYNOPSIS

This document can be read as is: as README.uts, or you can read it after you build your package using man perluts.

The purpose is to help you build Perl for UTS, which, if you follow these instructions, should be easy, and result in a solidly working installation.  

DESCRIPTION

Perl 5.7.2 (Developmental) or Perl 5.8.x (forthcoming) for UTS  

BUILDING PERL ON UTS

NOTE: Some sites have redefined the way uname works, and if yours does this, special steps must be taken so that Configure can recognize your system as a UTS system. To see if you are in this category, issue the command uname -a. It should look something like:

uts juno 4 4.4 9672 370

At any rate, the first field should be uts. If this is not the case; supposing it is, say telcoUTS, create a script, uts/uname (i.e. uname, in the subdirectory uts of the main Perl source dir):
   # uname
   /usr/bin/uname $@ | sed -e 's/^telcoUTS/uts/'

and when you execute Configure, do it as below, except for adding PATH=uts:$PATH as a prefix. I.e. do:

PATH=uts:$PATH ./Configure ...

There is no need to do an interactive configure, just type

./Configure -de [-Dusedevel] [-Doptimize=-g ] 2>&1 | tee Conf.out

-Dusedevel may be required to configure Perl 5.7.2 non-interactively. Use -Doptimize=-g if you want to run Perl under sdb or gdb, OR if you want to be able to use the -D command line flags to perl, which are occasionally useful in debugging perl scripts.

In this and the following steps, the 2>&1 | tee XXX.out records all output from the process, which will be useful if anything unexpected goes wrong.

Then do the compilation with

make 2>&1 | tee make.out

Finally, test using

make test 2>&1 | tee make-test.out

In the output, the only failures you should see should look like:

lib/Math/BigInt/t/bigfltpm.........Use of uninitialized value ... FAILED at test 57 lib/Math/BigInt/t/bigintc..........ok lib/Math/BigInt/t/bigintpm.........FAILED at test 204 lib/Math/BigInt/t/mbimbf...........Use of uninitialized value ... Illegal division by zero at ../lib/Math/BigInt/Calc.pm line 314. FAILED at test 71 lib/Math/Complex...................exp: OVERFLOW FAILED at test 250 lib/Math/Trig......................exp: OVERFLOW ok lib/Memoize/t/array................ok ... lib/Net/protoent...................ok lib/Net/servent....................FAILED at test 0

This means that everything passes except for some problems in the packages Math::BigInt, Math::Complex, and Math::Trig. The lib/Net/servent failure seems to be a bug in the test program. To confirm this, from the main Perl source dir, do:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd` ./perl -Ilib lib/Net/servent.t

and it should output

1..3 ok 1 ok 2 ok 3
