[ID 19991022.016] Two bugs to report
Message ID:

I am CEO of Dionaea Corporation, a software company that designs
performance monitoring tools for UNIX, and we have made the strategic
decision to use the perlcc compiler as the hub of our code development.
Overall this has been a good decision for us, but we have run into
several snags with the compiler.  Anyway, since we are so dependant 
upon the compiler, we felt that we are a prime user that could provide
some insight as a user of the perl compiler.  Anyway, we ran across a
couple bugs that our developers wanted to have reported back to the perl

Perl Version : 5.005_62
OS Version   : Solaris 7
C Compiler   : GCC 2.95
Architecture : sun4m
Description  : "perlcc -gen -sav" does not save C-code
               to file.  "perlcc" does
               not compile, and is a zero length file.
Perl Version : 5.005_61
OS Version   : Solaris 7
C Compiler   : GCC 2.95
Architecture : sun4m
Description  : "perlcc" where the contains the 
               following three lines of code fails to compile.
               use IO;
               print "Hello World\n";

               When the "use IO;" line is removed, code compiles.
               When the "use IO;" line is replaced with a different
               "use" directive, the code also compiles.  The problem
               seems to involve the use of the IO module.

               Below is the output from the compilation:
