The clean porting to the various platforms requires quite a lot rethinking of the Perl code to clearly separate the UNIX-scpecific parts from of the pure Perl "core". planning, implementing, and testing, the various APIs both for the innards of Perl 5 and to the external world, both for extensions and for modules. If you have some/lots-of spare time either to hack perl 5 code or just to test-compile new releases and patches, jump in.
Current UNIX PlatformsThe current UNIX porters cover (at least), only major versions listed: AIX 3, 4 BSD/386 1 ConvexOS 10 HPUX 9, 10 Digital UNIX / DEC OSF/1 1, 2, 3, 4 DG/UX 5 Linux 1, 2 IRIX 4, 5, 6 Interactive 3 MachTen 2, 4 NextStep 3 SCO 3 SunOS 4, 5 Ultrix 4 UNICOS 6, 7, 8, 9 Current Other Platforms The following non-UNIXy ports are included in the standard (source) distribution Amiga Mac OS/2 (note that the OS/2 binary works on MS-DOS (>=386), Win31, Win95, and WinNT (with some restrictions), last three require RSX extenders. QNX Plan 9 VMS Win/NT (note: supposed to work for Win95 too) Current Other Platforms not included in the standard distribution The following non-UNIXy ports are in progress/ready but not included in the standard (source) distribution Acorn RISC OS BeOS If you happen to have an OS not mentioned above and you feel like you need Perl, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word subscribe in the message body (not the subject).
