       perluts - Perl under UTS

       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 UTS

       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 pre-
       fix.  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

	 make test 2>&1 | tee make-test.out

       In the output, the only failures you should see should look like:

	  lib/Math/BigInt/t/bigfltpm.........Use of uninitialized value ...
	  FAILED at test 57
	  lib/Math/BigInt/t/bigintpm.........FAILED at test 204
	  lib/Math/BigInt/t/mbimbf...........Use of uninitialized value ...
	  Illegal division by zero at ../lib/Math/BigInt/Calc.pm line 314.
	  FAILED at test 71
	  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"
