Do I have to expect problem passing from perl 5.2.3 to perl 5.3.3 ?

(OP)
Hi
I would like to know if I will need re-compile my code in perl (actually using version 5.5.2 )when I will migrate from AIX 4.2.1 to AIX 4.3.3 .

I know that the following filesets are shipped automatically with AIX 4.3.3 <perl.rte 5.5.3> and <perl.man.en.US>.

My version of perl will automatically change from 5.2.2 to 5.3.3.
Tks

RE: Do I have to expect problem passing from perl 5.2.3 to perl 5.3.3 ?

Hi Annie,

I've never had a problem moving from one version of Perl to another.

You don't need to recompile Perl scripts between versions as Perl scripts are compiled "on-the-fly" as your run them.

Some add-ins to Perl may need recompiling (because parts of them are written in C or C++), I have in mind DBD and its modules, so that may need to be looked at.

Some Perl modules are dependant upon a particular version of Perl so you should check that out. (I'd write to the author of the module)

So -- in general I don't think you'll have a problem.

One question does occur to me though. Why don't you move up to the lastest version of Perl?
