Hi all,

I am experiencing slow performance problems with a perl script after upgrading from Perl 5.0.5 to 5.8.7.

 basically, we have a Perl script that we have been running for 10+ years and it is running much slower on our new Solaris 9 server than it did on our Solaris 8 server.  the script basically reads a text file and writes it out another text file in a different format.

Do you know what may be causing this? And what things i can do
