NAME

perlhaiku - Perl version 5.10+ on Haiku

CONTENTS

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 perl5/5.22.1/BePC-haiku/CORE/libperl.so .



Replace 5.22.1 with your respective version of Perl.

KNOWN PROBLEMS

The following problems are encountered with Haiku revision 28311:
o Perl cannot be compiled with threading support ATM.
o 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.
o A subtest of the ext/Sys/Syslog/t/syslog.t test fails. This is due to Haiku not implementing /dev/log support yet.
o 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 <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>.
