       If you want to use Perl on the Hurd, I recommend using the
       Debian GNU/Hurd distribution ( see http://www.debian.org/
       ), even if an official, stable release has not yet been
       made.  The old `gnu-0.2' binary distribution will most
       certainly have additional problems.

       Known Problems with Perl on Hurd

       The Perl test suite may still report some errors on the
       Hurd.  The `lib/anydbm' and `pragma/warnings' tests will
       almost certainly fail.  Both failures are not really spe­
       cific to the Hurd, as indicated by the test suite output.

       The socket tests may fail if the network is not config­
       ured.  You have to make `/hurd/pfinet' the translator for
       `/servers/socket/2', giving it the right arguments.  Try
       `/hurd/pfinet --help' for more information.

       Here are the statistics for Perl 5.005_62 on my system:

        Failed Test  Status Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of failed
        lib/anydbm.t                 12    1   8.33%  12
        pragma/warnings             333    1   0.30%  215

        8 tests and 24 subtests skipped.
        Failed 2/229 test scripts, 99.13% okay. 2/10850 subtests failed, 99.98% okay.

       There are quite a few systems out there that do worse!

       However, since I am running a very recent Hurd snapshot,
       in which a lot of bugs that were exposed by the Perl test
       suite have been fixed, you may encounter more failures.
       Likely candidates are: `op/stat', `lib/io_pipe',
       `lib/io_sock', `lib/io_udp' and `lib/time'.

       In any way, if you're seeing failures beyond those men­
       tioned in this document, please consider upgrading to the
       latest Hurd before reporting the failure as a bug.
