Subject Question about suggested AIX patch to perl.
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2000 23:45:46 GMT
I am working to update my instructions for getting mod_perl working as a DSO
on AIX. I see that there is a recommended patch for dl_aix.xs to get XS 

I am currently testing on AIX 4.3.3, Apache 1.3.13-dev, and IBM's IHS version There does not seem to be a perl file named dl_aix.xs anywhere in
the perl tree (perl5.00503 - which I believe is the default that is shipped
with AIX now). I did a find on the machine and found nothing. There isn't even
a perl subdirectory named ext.

Mod_perl seems to be working ok with the tests I have run. Do you know what
versions of perl/AIX require this patch? Do you know of a definitive test
to see if I am broken or not? I looked through the newsgroups and archives
that I could find and found no definitive answer as to what the patch applies

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
