Hi,
On giving cmd sh Configure, at one point it goes like
this and aborts

Do you wish to attempt to use the malloc that comes
with perl5? [y]

Your system wants malloc to return 'void *', it would
seem.
Your system uses void free(), it would seem.

Checking out function prototypes...
Your C compiler doesn't seem to understand function
prototypes.

Configure: FATAL ERROR:
This version of perl5 can only be compiled by a
compiler that
understands function prototypes. Unfortunately, your
C compiler
cc -D_HPUX_SOURCE
doesn't seem to understand them. Sorry about that.

If GNU cc is available for your system, perhaps you
could try that instead.

Eventually, we hope to support building Perl with
pre-ANSI compilers.
If you would like to help in that effort, please
contact perlbug@perl.org.

Aborting Configure now.

i cld not understand the reason of this abort, all
help is appreciated ...
thanks
achal

Hi folks,
Resending, since there was no response ..

[HP's default K&R compiler can't compile perl5, since it requires ANSI C.]

I already did respond privately on Thursday, and I'm quite sure I saw
other responses as well, but since you apparently didn't get them,
I'll ask you again​:

Which part of the error message didn't you understand? I tried to make
it as clear as possible. If it is unclear, please help me to rewrite it
so it is clear.

Also, since you are using HP/UX, you ought to read README.hpux.
