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

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.
