[PATCH] poll() help for VMS
Message ID:

A recent C run-time update added the poll() function, which we were not
testing for at configuration time. The patch below adds that test to
configure.com. However, the initial appearance of poll() was not
accompanied by poll.h, so the IO extension continues to use its own
home-grown version of poll(), which causes a multiply defined symbol
error at link time. I've remedied that by adding a macro in
ext/IO/poll.h that redefines poll. This is more along the lines of all
the other standard library replacements elsewhere in Perl.
