EGMS migration to Linux

I think it is about time to resurrect entries on this blog. It has been quite awhile since the last post, but hopefully others will post here has well. I am in the process of migrating the perl based applications from both perl5.005 and perl5.6.1 to perl5.8.8. This also includes moving to redhat enterprise 5 as the operating system.

I have made quite a bit of progress over the last month or so. Of the dozen or so perl based applications, only rcr and experts remain to be ported. RCR has a database connectivity issue that has been problematic. The experts application uses mod_perl and I have not gotten around to setting it up and testing it for outstanding issues.
