|0000523||Perl for OS/2||Bug||public||2012-01-23 10:35||2012-01-26 00:21|
|Platform||AMD dual core||OS||eComStation||OS Version||2.0 GA|
|Summary||0000523: Missing exe files|
|Description||The Perl 5.14.2 build is missing more.exe and sh.exe. That breaks perldoc.|
|Steps To Reproduce||perl F:\perl5\usr\local\scripts\perldoc -v $'|
|Additional Information||I was trying to test whether the most recent perldoc still loses CR.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I have no more.exe on my system...
In relation to sh.exe - I'd rather not include a build that's not part of Perl.
I've updated readme.os2 as follows:
If sh.exe can't be found in \bin; then use the PERL_SH_DIR environment variable to set the location with *forward slashes*. The recommended shell to use as sh.exe is available from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/alpha/ash.zip (rename ash.exe to sh.exe)
You might also add text suggesting that those with firefix installed set PERL_SH_DIR to bootdrive:/moztools and edit lib\5.10.0\os2\Config_heavy.pl to specify EXECSHELL as one of 'ash', 'ksh' or 'pdksh'.
Have you tried perldoc on your system? Please see [perl #108872].
