Currently fails to build on pre-5.8.9 perls, with: ./ In function 'boot_Socket': ./ error: 'HV_FETCH_LVALUE' undeclared (first use in this function) ./ error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once ./ error: for each function it appears in.) ./ error: 'HV_FETCH_ISSTORE' undeclared (first use in this function) as 5.8 is two major versions EOL, I'm not going to put in upfront effort for this. It works fine on 5.8.9 and 5.10 onwards. If anyone cares about 5.8.8 or earlier, ping this bug, preferably with a patch that fixes it, and I'll look into it. -- Paul Evans

Attached patch makes Socket portable back to Perl 5.6.1. A couple of the backcompat bits are actually working around flaws in ExtUtils::Constant, and I'm ultimately intending to get them fixed in EU:C, but the workarounds here get things working much sooner. I want Socket ported so that I can use IO::Socket::IP to build a lightweight FTP client for use by modules that currently work on Perl 5.6. -zefram
