What are the requirements to use the CSOV Perl extension ?
CSOV release 2.5 is supported on HP-UX 10.20, HP-UX 11.0, HP-UX 11.11 and Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6, 7 & 8 with Network Node Manager releases 6.x, 7.x. CSOV release release 2.5 is also supported on the Windows platform with NNM 6.X, NNM 7.x. CSOV Release 2.5 requires Perl 5.6. Use of CSOV with NNM 7.5 requires that the latest NNM consolidated patch be installed. The default Unix distribution includes a full Perl build. The Windows verion installs with an existing ActiveState Perl installation using the Perl Package Manager (PPM). To use your own Perl build, Perl must have been built to support dynamic loading. If you already have Perl and it was built to support dynamic loading then CSOV can be added using the normal Perl build extension process. 

I already have Perl and it was built for dynamic loading. How do I add the CSOV Perl extension? 
First you must have a Perl that was built to support dynamic loading. Contact CSNet Consulting and request the CSOV Extension for an existing Perl. Using the normal Perl process for adding extensions do the following steps. 
Extract tar the file (tar xvf /tmp/file-name)
Make sure that the Perl binary path is before any other Perl path's in your PATH
cd /tmp/CSOV
perl Makefile.PL
make install

I have installed the full Perl distribution that includes the CSOV extension. I want to add another extension to that distribution. What do I need to do? 
First, you will need to have the GNU gcc compiler installed (and for HP-UX you will also need the GNU sed and binutils installed). Make sure that /opt/perl5/bin and the path for the GNU gcc (and sed and binutils on HP-UX) are first in your PATH environment variable. Then follow the instructions for building and installing the extension. The full Perl distribution that includes CSOV was built to support dynamic loading. Extensions that require dynamic loading can be built with this distribution. Extensions that must be statically linked can be added as well.
