InfiniteLoop has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings Monks,
 I have been tasked with install HTML::Tidy on SunOS 5.8, running perl 5.6.1. I have the libtidy installed, when I try to compile HTML::Tidy, I get the following errors:
$ make cp lib/HTML/Tidy/Message.pm blib/lib/HTML/Tidy/Message.pm cp lib/HTML/Tidy.pm blib/lib/HTML/Tidy.pm /usr/local/bin/perl /opt/perl/5.6.1/lib/perl/ExtUtils/xsubpp -typemap + /opt/perl/5.6.1/lib/perl/ExtUtils/typemap Tidy.xs > Tidy.xsc && mv +Tidy.xsc Tidy.c Error: 'const char *' not in typemap in Tidy.xs, line 15 Error: 'const char *' not in typemap in Tidy.xs, line 50 Error: 'const char *' not in typemap in Tidy.xs, line 51 Please specify prototyping behavior for Tidy.xs (see perlxs manual) make: *** [Tidy.c] Error 1
 I checked the perlxs docs, but to no avail. If other monks have installed HTML::Tidy on Solaris 5.8, please help. Thanks.
