PERLDGUX(1)            Perl Programmers Reference Guide            PERLDGUX(1)



NAME
       perldgux - Perl under DG/UX.

SYNOPSIS
       One can read(2,n,1 builtins) this document in(1,8) the following formats:

               man(1,5,7) perldgux
               view perl perldgux
               explorer perldgux.html
               info(1,5,n) perldgux

       to list some (not all may be available simultaneously), or it may be
       read(2,n,1 builtins) as is: as README.dgux.

DESCRIPTION
       Perl 5.7/8.x for DG/UX ix86 R4.20MU0x

BUILDING PERL ON DG/UX
       Non-threaded Perl on DG/UX

       Just run ./Configure script from the top directory.  Then give "make"
       to compile.

       Threaded Perl on DG/UX

       If you are using as compiler GCC-2.95.x rev(DG/UX) an easy solution for
       configuring perl in(1,8) your DG/UX machine is to run the command:

       ./Configure -Dusethreads -Duseithreads -Dusedevel -des

       This will automatically accept(2,8) all the defaults and in(1,8) particular
       /usr/local/ as installation directory.  Note that GCC-2.95.x rev(DG/UX)
       knows the switch(1,n) -pthread which allows it to link(1,2) 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(2,8) all the defaults and *watch* out
       for the message:

           Any additional ld(1,8) 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(3,n)
       you choose the defaults.  After configuration is done correctly give
       "make" to compile.

       Testing Perl on DG/UX

       Issuing 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(7,n,1 builtins)
           when world writable?) at lib/ftmp-security.t line 100

       don't panic and just set(7,n,1 builtins) the sticky bit in(1,8) your /tmp directory by doing
       the following as root:

       cd / chmod(1,2) +t /tmp (=set(7,n,1 builtins) the sticky bit to /tmp).

       Then rerun the tests. This time(1,2,n) all must be OK.

       Installing the built perl on DG/UX

       Run the command "make install"
