User Contributed Perl Documentation PERLGCC(1) NAME perlgcc - Compile perl modules using gcc. SYNOPSIS perlgcc Makefile.PL; make DESCRIPTION When perl is built it saves the name of the compiler and any compiler flags in its configuration files, and then uses these saved settings when any additional modules are built. The perl shipped with Solaris is built with the Forte compilers rather than gcc. If add-on modules are built with the Forte compilers, everyting works as expected. However, if gcc is used to build add-on modules, the saved configuration is incorrect as it assumes that the Forte compiler will be present. This command provides a set of perl configuration files that are configured to use gcc as the compiler rather than the Forte compiler. The default configuration files are not modified, instead a replacement set of files are transparently substituted for the duration of the perlgcc command. Instead of invoking "perl Makefile.PL" to generate the makefile needed to compile a module, "perlgcc Makefile.PL" should be used instead. All command-line arguments to perlgcc are passed unmodified to "perl". If you use the CPAN.pm module, instead of invoking "perl -MCPAN -e shell", you should use "perlgcc -MCPAN -e shell" instead, and use as normal. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES PERL5LIB This is modified to point to the location of the replacement perl configuration files.
