Updating hp unix system steps
- Perl version 5 on Hewlett-Packard Unix (HP-UX) systems This document describes various features of HP's Unix operating system (HP-UX) that will affect how Perl version 5 (hereafter just Perl) is compiled and/or runs.Application release September 2001, HP-UX 11.00 is the first to ship with Perl. The first occurrence is on CD 5012-7954 and can be installed using Active Perl:: Doc Tools-0.04 HTML:: Parser-3.19 XML:: DOM-1.25 Archive:: Tar-0.072 HTML:: Tagset-3.03 XML:: Parser-2.27 Compress:: Zlib-1.08 MIME:: Base64-2.11 XML:: Simple-1.05 Convert:: ASN1-0.10 Net-1.07 XML:: XPath-1.09 Digest:: MD5-2.11 PPM-2.1.5 XML:: XSLT-0.32 File:: Counter File-0.12 SOAP:: Lite-0.46 libwww-perl-5.51 Font:: AFM-1.18 Storable-1.011 libxml-perl-0.07 HTML-Tree-3.11 URI-1.11 perl-ldap-0.23 The build was a portable hppa-1.1 multithread build that supports large files compiled with gcc-2.9-hppa-991112 If you perform a new installation, then Perl will be installed automatically.HP also ships servers with the 128-bit Itanium processor(s). Shared libraries created on a platform using a particular PA-RISC version are not usable on platforms using an earlier PA-RISC version by default.As of the date of this document's last update, the following systems contain Itanium or Itanium 2 chips (this is very likely to be out of date): HP-UX supports dynamically loadable libraries (shared libraries). However, this backwards compatibility may be enabled using the same DAportable compiler flag (with the same PA-RISC 1.0 caveat mentioned above).More recent (preinstalled) HP-UX systems have more recent versions of Perl and the updated modules.HP porting centre tries very hard to keep up with customer demand and release updates from the Open Source community.
To create a shared library, the following steps must be performed: 1.The most recent version of PA-RISC at the time of this document's last update is 2.0.HP PA-RISC systems are usually refered to with model description "HP 9000".The C compiler that ships with all HP-UX systems is a K&R compiler that should only be used to build new kernels.Perl can be compiled with either HP's ANSI C compiler or with gcc.
