Hi All!

A few days ago I've begun to compile perl 5.20 to perl 5.32 on a DS10
with the OpenVMS 8.4.
For the first time I have been able to compile only perl5.20.2 without
errors. To compile it I need to increase pgflquota to 400000, by
default pgflquota has been 258000.
I was using MMK V5.0.

Spending some time I've downloaded MMK from the Git, compiled it and
replaced older MMK. I also decreased pgflquota to 300000.

After that perl 5.32.1, 5.30.3, 5.28.3 and 5.26.3 have been compiled
without error. 

Only perl 5.22.4 and 5.24.4 I couldn't compile. While compile perl
5.22.4 and 5.24.4 I've got the same error in the same place:

---------------------------------------
Now at my test bench DS10 I've got perl 5.20, 5.26, 5.28, 5.30 and 5.32
and I guess that it will be enough. Information about TEST I've
uploaded into the files area "OpenVMS group" group on the Facebook.

Thank all of you who still continue support VMS
Oleg.

p.s. May be will a good thing to add additional information about MMK
utility and Page file quota into README.vms file.
