in reply to Solaris and Icons

At the Solaris DOS prompt, type

zcat latest.tar.gz | tar xf - cd perl-* ./Configure make make test make install

In the process, you will be asked a few question, but I guess you'll figure out. Come back to ask any time, preferably in the chatterbox.

--shmem

_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                              /\_¯/(q    /

");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

    Vanilla Solaris does not come with a compiler. The Software Companion CD/DVD does have gcc on it but that is not guarenteed to be installed and even if it is the PATH likely needs to be updated. For example:
    export PATH="/usr/sfw/bin:/opt/sfw/bin/:$PATH" export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/sfw/lib:/opt/sfw/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"

    that's another problem I having where is DOS on this thing?? they sure copied windows with this "java desktop" thing another problem is I can't find the file I downloaded
      You shouldn't have to use perl if you don't want to. Fortunately, if your installation of solaris did not come pre-installed with DOS you can download it from here DOSEMU or here Wine.
