Perl 5.24.0 binary kits for OpenVMS available
Craig A. Berry announced on comp.os.vms Installation kits for OpenVMS Alpha and OpenVMS I64 v8.3 and later are
available at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsperlkit/files/
and should soon be at: http://download.perl.space/ as well.
The files are self-extracting archives and after downloading you must
run them like so:
$ run VMSPORTS-AXPVMS-PERL524-V0524-0-1.SFX_AXPEXE
for Alpha, and:
$ run VMSPORTS-I64VMS-PERL524-V0524-0-1.SFX_I64EXE
for Itanium. Then, on either platform:
$ product install perl524
and follow the usual installation prompts. Note that the major version
is now included in the product name so this installation will not remove
installations of previous versions (e.g., 5.20 or 5.22).
The kits provided here are intended to be a convenient way to acquire a
default build; there are many other configuration options available if
you build your own Perl from the source at .
Have an appropriate amount of fun. Anything related to these kits that
turns out to be more fun than you can handle is probably best reported
on the vmsperl mailing list.[ http://lists.perl.org/list/vmsperl.html ]
