I've spent three days looking through online documents and I can't
find anything that even gives me a clue as to how to solve my Perl
problem. Can someone PLEASE help, or at least tell me the best place
to look (yes, I've been all through CPAN).
Specifically, my problem is this:
I just started attempting to use perlcc with Redhat Linux 5.2 on an
Intel platform (Pentium 133). My perl code seems to compile okay using
perlcc, but it won't run. What is SEEMS to be choking on is
subroutine calls, even though it tells me the syntax of my code
was okay during the compile phase. What I get when I run my code
is a "segmentation fault" and a core dump. Note: I am NOT using any
modules and I have tested the problem by using a simple program which
does nothing except call a subroutine which prints "hello world".
If I had written this in fortran, I would think this is some kind of
link error, but Perl doesn't link, does it?
One of the oldest problems. Can anyone say like what would has caused this problem? Just curious to know
Please note that this problem was marked Resolved way back in 2003 when the ticket was being tracked in RT. Indeed, the original filing date suggests that this ticket may have been filed even before we moved to RT. The original poster does not provide sufficient detail for someone to understand the problem and never followed up. That is probably the reason the ticket was closed.
