NAME

perlivp - Perl Installation Verification Procedure

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

<B>perlivpB> [<B>-pB>] [<B>-vB>] [<B>-hB>]

DESCRIPTION

The <B>perlivpB> 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 <B>perlB> and its libraries have been installed correctly. A correct installation is verified by output that looks like:



    ok 1
    ok 2



etc.

OPTIONS

<B>-hB> help Prints out a brief help message.
<B>-pB> print preface Gives a description of each test prior to performing it.
<B>-vB> 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

o print # Perl binary ’$perlpath’ does not appear executable.\n;

Likely to occur for a perl binary that was not properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

o print # Perl version ’$]’ installed, expected $ivp_VERSION.\n;

Likely to occur for a perl that was not properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

o print # Perl \@INC directory ’$_’ does not appear to exist.\n;

Likely to occur for a perl library tree that was not properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

o print # Needed module ’$_’ does not appear to be properly installed.\n;

One of the two modules that is used by perlivp was not present in the installation. This is a serious error since it adversely affects perlivp’s ability to function. You may be able to correct this by performing a proper perl installation.

o print # Required module ’$_’ does not appear to be properly installed.\n;

An attempt to eval "require $module" failed, even though the list of extensions indicated that it should succeed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

o print # Unnecessary module ’bLuRfle’ appears to be installed.\n;

This test not coming out ok could indicate that you have in fact installed a bLuRfle.pm module or that the eval " require \"$module_name.pm\"; " test may give misleading results with your installation of perl. If yours is the latter case then please let the author know.

o print # file,+($#missing == 0) ? ’’ : ’s’, missing from installation:\n;

One or more files turned up missing according to a run of ExtUtils::Installed -> validate() over your installation. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

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.
