Subject Re: Perl's Bit::Vector module on Solaris 9
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2009 15:11:47 GMT

assuming you have root permissions on the box, you may want to look  
into Blastwave (

It has a Solaris package (pm_bitvector) for this Perl module. You'll  
need to install their Perl as well then. It all goes under /opt/csw  
and won't 'interfere' with anything else on your box.

You'll also find development packages (make, gcc, etc.) in case you  
want to build from scratch.

Hope this helps.
