From Eman.Abohebeish@disney.com

I'm installing PERL on my UNIX box for the first time.

When I try to run "make", I get the following error message​:

/home/users/psoft_qa/sybperl/perl5.005_03>> make
`sh cflags libperl.a perl.o` perl.c
  CCCMD = cc -DPERL_CORE -c -O
cc​: Error​: perl.c, line 24​: In this declaration, parameter 1 has a different
typ
e than specified in an earlier declaration of this function.
char *getenv _((char *)); /* Usually in <stdlib.h> */
------^
cc​: Error​: perl.c, line 24​: In this declaration, the type of "getenv" is not
com
patible with the type of a previous declaration of "getenv" at line number
196 i
n file /usr/include/stdlib.h.
char *getenv _((char *)); /* Usually in <stdlib.h> */
------^
*** Exit 1
Stop.

I checked and the stdlib.h defines the getenv function as

extern char *getenv __((const char *));

Not sure what do do about this inconsistancy. Any help is appreciated.

Which Digital UNIX? What do

  uname -a

and

  sizer -v

show?

You didn't say for sure which version of "Tru64 UNIX"
a.k.a. "DIGITAL UNIX" a.k.a. "DEC OSF/1" you were using at the
time, so the following is just a best guess based on my own past
experience at building and installing perl.

It looks as though you went out of your way to override the
carefully-tested hints/dec_osf.sh file's compiler flags which
make it work 'out of the box'. I suggest you try again with 'sh
./Configure -des ; make all test', and once that's working you
can go back and see about re-building with different options if
you need them. In particular, here, you've lost the '-std' which
gets you current prototypes for things in stdlib.h, along with
the right return types from some syscalls which have different
flavours depending on the compilation model.

Hi,

I am using Digital Unix V4.0D. I followed the instruction below 'sh
./Config -des', but the 'make all test' gave me the same error, namely

/home/users/psoft_qa/sybperl/perl5.005_03>> make all test
`sh cflags libperl.a perl.o` perl.c
  CCCMD = cc -DPERL_CORE -c -O
cc​: Error​: perl.c, line 24​: In this declaration, parameter 1 has a different
typ
e than specified in an earlier declaration of this function.
char *getenv _((char *)); /* Usually in <stdlib.h> */
------^
cc​: Error​: perl.c, line 24​: In this declaration, the type of "getenv" is not
com
patible with the type of a previous declaration of "getenv" at line number
196 i
n file /usr/include/stdlib.h.
char *getenv _((char *)); /* Usually in <stdlib.h> */
------^
*** Exit 1
Stop.

I didn't make any "manual" changes to any files.

I have set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/sybase_qa_11.9.2/lib

Do I need to set LD_LIBARY_PATH differently?

Eman

O.K. Everything works now - All I needed was in the first fifteen lines of
the instructions.

Thanks - Eman
