tollyban has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

i am trying to build the XML-simple with perl-5.8.8 on Aix box.
But it is showing the error as:
Can't load '../../AIX5.3_64/perl-5.8.8/lib/auto/File/Glob/' for + module File::Glob: readExports: bad magic at ../../AIX5.3_64/perl-5. +8.8 /lib/ line 70. at ../../AIX5.3_64/perl-5.8.8/lib/File/ line 96 Compilation failed in require at ../../AIX5.3_64/perl-5.8.8/lib/ExtUti +ls/ line 61.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted. make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 255.
Can any one help on this.?

    Hi what version of AIX as built fine for me the other day without issues on AIX 6100-07-04-1216?
      Just in case oslevel -s Will tell you


        Just in case the AIX is 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!
