Perl 5.8.8 available for OS/2 & eCS

February 12, 2007 by Paul Smedley

Just added to

Perl 5.8.8 for OS/2 & eComStation

Release Notes:
1) built with libc06 CSD1 so libc061.dll is required - this can be downloaded from
2) All bug reports should be submitted via the bug tracker at

See the COPYING file for details on the Perl license

Note that this build of Perl is coded to look in u:/perl/lib for its libraries.

If your Perl is installed somewhere else, you need to set an environment variable to tell Perl the install location, ie:

set PERLIB_PREFIX=u:/perl/lib;x:/path/to/perl/lib

I am VERY interested in feedback on this release - I've been using it to run SpamAssassin for the last month or so with no problems.

If you like this software and want to support continued ports, please consider donating via PayPal via the link in the footer at or via the Mensys online store at
