in reply to Building Perl 5.10 failure

You are missing the math library (-lm).

But WHY are you building such an ancient version? perl-5.16.3 is out. I see no reason to use 5.10.1.

    Personally I've got one version of each stable line from 5.6.x to 5.16.x for testing purposes. I do nearly all development on 5.16.2 though. (I haven't seen a compelling reason to go 5.16.3 given that 5.18.0 will be out Real Soon Now.)

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

      I have over 100 versions of perl on my laptop starting with perl1 and including all development releases. When you do so - like you - to test (your own) stuff, one might be expected to have enough experience to recognize build errors and fix them where appropriate. For all others, there is Devel::PatchPerl if one really needs a historic build for whatever purpose,

      The OP did not mention a single reason for building a perl so old.


      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
[Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
[marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
