I have downloaded perl5.005_003, unpacked it, ran "sh Configure" and
then "make >make.log 2>&1". make.log is attached which contains a fair
number of warnings, and a floating point exception at the end. Any ideas why
I am getting the exception?
Also attached is the output from myconfig,
Yes I did eventually get Perl 5.005_03 built. After a
lot of effort I managed to upgrade gcc from 2.4.5 to egcs-2.91.66. Perl
works very well and I have enjoyed learning the language.
On this old version of Unix (Sys V R3) there is no dynamic linking, and
after adding in everything that I thought would be useful, the launch time
became very slow. Compared to the 1st build vith no extensions and a
reasonable launch time, this is a drawback.
