I'm closing this ticket for (a) lack of response to the request for information above; and (b) the likelihood that we will never be able to test on this architecture in the future. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SunOS, the last release in the Sun OS 4.1.x series was in November 1994. "The SunOS name is usually only used to refer to versions 1.0 to 4.1.4 of SunOS. These versions were based on BSD, while SunOS version 5.0 and later are based on UNIX System V Release 4, and are marketed under the brand name Solaris." We *do* get CPANtesters reports for File-Path on Solaris, and those reports are PASSing. See, e.g., http://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=File-Path%202.10_002;os=solaris;perl=5.22.0;reports=1. So unless we get fresh reports to the contrary, we can presume that File-Path is doing fine on the descendants of the SunOS. BingOS++ for the Solaris reports. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
