NAME

README.haiku - Perl version 5.10+ on Haiku  

DESCRIPTION

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
  make install

Make perl executable and create a symlink for libperl:

  chmod a+x /boot/common/bin/perl
  cd /boot/common/lib; ln -s perl5/5.10.1/BePC-haiku/CORE/libperl.so .

Replace 5.10.1 with your respective version of Perl.  

KNOWN PROBLEMS

The following problems are encountered with Haiku revision 28311:
*
Perl cannot be compiled with threading support ATM.
*
The "ext/Socket/t/socketpair.t" test 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.t" test fails. This is due to Haiku not implementing "/dev/log" support yet.
*
The tests "lib/Net/Ping/t/450_service.t" and "lib/Net/Ping/t/510_ping_udp.t" fail. This is due to bugs in Haiku's network stack implementation.
 

CONTACT

For Haiku specific problems contact the HaikuPorts developers: http://ports.haiku-files.org/

The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold <[email protected]>.
