Solaris 9 12/03 Release Notes

Perl Version 5.005_03

Perl version 5.005_03 might not be supported in a future release. In the Solaris 9 release, the default version of Perl has been changed to a version that is not binary compatible with the earlier version (5.005_03). However, the earlier version of Perl is still retained for compatibility. Customer-installed modules need to be rebuilt and reinstalled against the new version. Modify any scripts that require the use of version 5.005_03 to explicitly use the 5.005_03 version of the interpreter (/usr/perl5/5.005_03/bin/perl) instead of the default version (/bin/perl, /usr/bin/perl, or /usr/perl5/bin/perl).
