[PATCH] sig_num, etc.
Message ID:
The attached patch corrects three minor issues for VMS in
It's relevant (and should apply cleanly to) both 5.8.1-to-be and bleadperl.

-- fixes $Config{sig_num} to be space-separated and not zero-terminated
so we don't fail lib/Config.t. Does the same for $Config{sig_name}.
Thanks to Peter Prymmer for getting me 90% there on this part.

-- removed false impression that we support readdir_r in threaded
builds. The C run-time supports it but we are using a home-grown version
of readdir.

-- upgraded the options passed to the default paging program for all
versions of VMS released in the last nine years or so. Left the old
options for older versions. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
