I am running 1.93 with perl5.002 on Solaris 2.5. It works fine. (I
think I had to change some literal "@" into "\@" in some strings.) My
first thought is that perhaps your Segmentation fault stems from a bug
in Perl5 which is fixed in 5.002. Which version version does perl -v
report? [ Looks below - I see you're using 5.001 - I think 5.002 does
have some bugfixes in it. ] You may need to build a later version. (You
can FTP one from me if you like.)

No worries. Your "poor English" is much better than my poor
any-other-language you might name :-)
