Having problems with some of the modules inluded in the Perl 5.005_03
distribution. The problem originated when attempting to use the Socket
module. I've looked into numerous sources to attempt to solve the problem
on my own to no avail... Every time the "use Socket;" statement is used
Perl spits out a "Segmentation fault(coredump)".

I've tracked the error down to the file. The line
that reads​: "bootstrap Socket $VERSION;" seems to cause the error. Since
I'm not familiar with what bootstrap does I'm not sure that this is the
true culprit. However, I did some poking around to find other packages
that have a "bootstrap" line and ran it raw through Perl receiving the
same "Segmentation fault(coredump)" message. Take that for what it's

Now for the system information... It's an Apple Network Server 500/132.
Plenty of RAM and drive space. It's running AIX 4.1.4 (believe me, I've
looked for updates, it's now "unsupported")

Another note to be aware of, the compiler option "-qmaxmem=8192" generates
a non-fatal error. Everything "seems" to compile fine, the compiler just
doesn't recognize it.

I've included the output of the myconfig file as the README suggested. I
can also produce the output of the "make test" if necessary.

I hope this issue can be solved and save someone else from the nightmares
I've had with this thing...

Please let me know what is found about this issue. THANK YOU IN
