Re: Compile error with perl5.6
Thanks for the info, perl and I don't get along too well yet.
With your info and some further searching I should have done first,
I have found that this module has a new version 1.09 that specifically
mentions the POLLUTE issue being dealt with. It compiles nicely and
I now have it installed, thanks again.
Just FYI any others reading this, I had to use
perldoc ExtUtils::MakeMaker to get the info on POLLUTE
and AFAICT the DEFINE is POLLUTE instead of PERL_POLLUTE.
Of course, I could be VERY wrong just what I found.
