Description Nick Simicich 2001-08-27 17:49:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0) Description of problem: Lots of scripts want to look at .ph files. A specific reason for this would be to get exit codes for mail processor exits out of sysexits.ph. Redhat's default perl installation foes not run h2ph and it should. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install a system. 2. Note that the .ph files are missing 3. Actual Results: File not found. Expected Results: The perl include should have worked. Additional info: See the h2ph man page for instructions on running h2ph. This is something that any administrator *can* do, but it is really part of installing perl. If the perl RPM does not do this, it is only doing a partial install.

.ph files are generated for some headers at build time but not runtime. .ph files are included as a convenience for compatibility but are largely depracated for regular usage.
