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 No-
       vember 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::MakeMaker".  While there may be a bug somewhere in
       Perl's configuration or "ExtUtil::MakeMaker" causing the problem, the most likely cause is
       an incomplete understanding of Sun Studio by this author.  Further investigation is needed
       to get this working better.
