       This document can be read as is: as README.uts, or you can
       read it after you build your package using "man perluts".

       The purpose is to help you build Perl for UTS, which, if
       you follow these instructions, should be easy, and result
       in a solidly working installation.


       Perl 5.7.2 (Developmental) or Perl 5.8.x (forthcoming) for


       NOTE: Some sites have redefined the way uname works, and
       if yours does this, special steps must be taken so that
       Configure can recognize your system as a UTS system.  To
       see if you are in this category, issue the command "uname
       -a".  It should look something like:

         uts juno 4 4.4 9672 370

       At any rate, the first field should be "uts".  If this is
       not the case; supposing it is, say telcoUTS, create a
       script, uts/uname (i.e. uname, in the subdirectory "uts"
       of the main Perl source dir):
          # uname
          /usr/bin/uname "$@" | sed -e 's/^telcoUTS/uts/'

       and when you execute Configure, do it as below, except for
       adding PATH=uts:$PATH as a prefix.  I.e. do:

          PATH=uts:$PATH ./Configure ...

       There is no need to do an interactive configure, just type

         ./Configure -de [-Dusedevel] [-Doptimize=-g ] 2>&1 | tee Conf.out

       "-Dusedevel" may be required to configure Perl 5.7.2
       non-interactively.  Use -Doptimize=-g if you want to run
       Perl under sdb or gdb, OR if you want to be able to use
       the -D command line flags to perl, which are occasionally
       useful in debugging perl scripts.

       In this and the following steps, the "2>&1 | tee XXX.out"
       records all output from the process, which will be useful
       if anything unexpected goes wrong.

       Then do the compilation with

         make 2>&1 | tee make.out

       Finally, test using
          lib/Math/Complex...................exp: OVERFLOW
          FAILED at test 250
          lib/Math/Trig......................exp: OVERFLOW
          lib/Net/servent....................FAILED at test 0

       This means that everything passes except for some problems
       in the packages "Math::BigInt", "Math::Complex", and
       "Math::Trig".  The lib/Net/servent failure seems to be a
       bug in the test program.  To confirm this, from the main
       Perl source dir, do:

          LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd` ./perl -Ilib lib/Net/servent.t

       and it should output

          ok 1
          ok 2
          ok 3

Installing the built perl on UTS

       Run the command "make install"
