NAME

perlivp - Perl Installation Verification Procedure

SYNOPSIS

perlivp [-p] [-v] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

The perlivp program is set up at Perl source code build time to test the Perl version it was built under. It can be used after running:

make install

(or your platform's equivalent procedure) to verify that perl and its libraries have been installed correctly. A correct installation is verified by output that looks like:

ok 1
ok 2

etc.

OPTIONS

-h help

Prints out a brief help message.

-p print preface

Gives a description of each test prior to performing it.

-v verbose

Gives more detailed information about each test, after it has been performed. Note that any failed tests ought to print out some extra information whether or not -v is thrown.

DIAGNOSTICS

For further information on how to conduct a proper installation consult the INSTALL file that comes with the perl source and the README file for your platform.
