SUMMARY: perl5 on solaris8

edit and comment out the first line of the script
so that it looks like this:

     #unless (defined &) { sub () { "" } }

Some people suggested that I run h2ph.  It should have been clear that I
already had.
Some said this is a common problem with Perl.  That would be ok, except
this is the
version of Perl that Sun include with Solaris8.  You should expect it to
just work.


Original question.

I'm getting an error with the version of perl5 that Sun include in

The error is:
     Warning: Use of "defined" without parens is ambiguous at /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris/ line 2.
     Can't use subscript on subroutine entry at /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris/ line 2, near "} }"
     (Did you mean $ or @ instead of &?)
     syntax error at /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris/ line 4, near "unless"

As far as I can tell, was created at the same time that I had h2ph generate
