Wasn't on ActiveState yet.

Concerning the perldelta, I'd like to propose to change the
64bit/Solaris statement.

First of all, the most recent version of the Workshop compiler
suffered a marketing rename, too. It's now Forte(tm) C.

Then, we should mention the compiler version. Alan? What did you use?
I've deleted all your test reports.

Finally, we have no results for (Forte\(tm\)|Workshop) on x86 since
I have no license for the compiler. I'll see if I can get a try-and-buy
version downloaded, but this will not be in time for any last second ;-)
changes for 5.7.0.

So the paragraph should probably be someting like this:

> 64-bitness on SPARC using the Sun Workshop compiler now works. This

(No patch, because I don't have the value for <foo>.)

I've got positive test results from gcc compiles with use64bit on
x86 (Solaris 8) and UltraSPARC (Solaris 2.6), the compile on
a SuperSPARC with Solaris 7 is still running. (I'm glad I don't
have to use the IPX for this ...)

Sorry, I have no earlier Solaris versions installed, and I doubt
I'll find time for this soon. Anybody else on the list?

When the SuperSPARC 'make test' is complete, I'll sned out the
patch for hints/
