    tollyban,

    Just in case the AIX is 5.2.0.0 or earlier, '-s' is not supported yet, just 'oslevel' will give you the AIX level.

    However, IMHO the more important question is what C compiler are you using? For CPAN installs I have used 'GCC version 4.2.4' with great success. YMMV. I don't know if CPAN authors verify that IBM's 'xlc' compiler will work with their package!

    Good Luck!

      Actually that is a fair point. I used GCC 4.2.3 for ours. Won't post my thoughts if they are still using AIX 5.2 though!! ;o)

        tollyban,

          Won't post my thoughts if they are still using AIX 5.2 though!! ;o)

        Well, I have clients that are still on AIX 4.3 because if they want 5/6/7+ they have to buy new hardware.

        I have a client that I sold a non-IBM system in 1982 that they are still using today. I had to do some tweaking for Y2K, but it still runs and does what they need to be done. The hardware and operating system companies are long out of business, so when it breaks it's all over.

        Not everyone needs the latest and greatest each year!

        Have a good one...Ed
