NAME
       README.linux - Perl version 5 on Linux systems

DESCRIPTION
       This document describes various features of Linux that will affect how Perl version 5 (hereafter just Perl) is
       compiled and/or runs.

       Experimental Support for Sun Studio Compilers for Linux OS

       Sun Microsystems has released a port of their Sun Studio compiliers for Linux.  As of November 2005, only an
       alpha version has been released.  Until a release of these compilers is made, support for compiling Perl with
       these compiler experimental.

       Also, some special instructions for building Perl with Sun Studio on Linux.  Following the normal "Configure",
       you have to run make as follows:

           LDLOADLIBS=-lc make

       "LDLOADLIBS" is an environment variable used by the linker to link modules "/ext" modules to glibc.  Currently,
       that environment variable is not getting populated by a combination of "Config" entries and "ExtUtil::Make-
       Maker".  While there may be a bug somewhere in Perl's configuration or "ExtUtil::MakeMaker" causing the prob-
       lem, the most likely cause is an incomplete understanding of Sun Studio by this author.  Further investigation
       is needed to get this working better.
