Hi, I want to build and install perl 5.8.1 on AIX 4.3.3 and I have ibmcxx for compiler. I've already done it one time without any optimization parameter and I'm looking to include some (architecture and optimize for exemple)

How could I build my ./configure to have the best build as I can. It should be stable because it would be on many server in prod.

thx

the compiler is "ibmcxx".

I've already suceed to compile it, but without any optimisation. I want to compile it again with optimisation for PowerPC and something like -o2 but I don't know how to build my configure command for that

CFLAGS="opt1 opt2 cpu1 cpu2" ./configure
(for default /bin/ksh)
compiler has manual page for sure, and there are lots of options. if you do not find them just ask.
do not build optimized (ok - one version for 604e, another for POWER and third for RS64II), striping and sticking modules sometimes give greater effect

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

you suggest me to only use opt1 (-o2 for exemple) and no optimisation for the cpu? that's right?

and install bos.adt.samples to see if non-generic code does not use CPU emulator using emstat
./configure --help is your biggest friend when finding where to add what options

"and install bos.adt.samples to see if non-generic code does not use CPU emulator using emstat"

if it happens, do I have something different to do?

Yes - code for more generic cpu will run 100x faster on your exact CPU.
