Perl 5.34.1 binary kits available
Message ID:
Installation kits for OpenVMS Alpha and OpenVMS I64 8.4 or later are now available, and also a kit for the OpenVMS X86 E9.2 field test.  Files can be downloaded from:


The Alpha and Itanium files are self-extracting archives and after downloading to your VMS system you must run them like so:

$ run VMSPORTS-I64VMS-PERL534-V0534-1-1.SFX_I64EXE


$ product install perl534

The X86 self-extraction code is not yet up to snuff, so that PCSI kit is contained in a simple zip file. You will need to use Info-Zip's unzip utility provided with the field test to unzip like so before installing:

$ unzip

Note that OpenVMS X86 E9.2 comes with Perl 5.34.0 as part of the base install and the kit here will overwrite that with Perl 5.34.1.
