Perl 5 version 12.4 documentation
README.haiku - Perl version 5.10+ on Haiku
This file contains instructions how to build Perl for Haiku and lists known problems.
BUILD AND INSTALL
The build procedure is completely standard:
- ./Configure -de
- make install
Make perl executable and create a symlink for libperl:
- chmod a+x /boot/common/bin/perl
- cd /boot/common/lib; ln -s perl5/5.12.4/BePC-haiku/CORE/libperl.so .
with your respective version of Perl.
The following problems are encountered with Haiku revision 28311:
Perl cannot be compiled with threading support ATM.
ext/Socket/t/socketpair.ttest fails. More precisely: the subtests using datagram sockets fail. Unix datagram sockets aren't implemented in Haiku yet.
A subtest of the
ext/Sys/Syslog/t/syslog.ttest fails. This is due to Haiku not implementing
lib/Net/Ping/t/510_ping_udp.tfail. This is due to bugs in Haiku's network stack implementation.
For Haiku specific problems contact the HaikuPorts developers: http://ports.haiku-files.org/
The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
