Re: Problem building PERL 5.8 on SCO Openserver 5.0.5
Message ID:
Dear Rafael,

I have got my script running fine on SCO OpenServer 5.0.0, it has taken me 
this long to install the modules that I needed and it is finally running.

I am now trying to build per on SCO OpenServer 5.0.5 but the Configure 
script is failing.

The file is from the command "sh Configure -de" and 
nohup.out.des is from the command "sh Configure -des -Dusedl=n".

Please could you let me know if you have any ideas on what I can do about 

Thank you.
