PERLHAIKU(1)           Perl Programmers Reference Guide           PERLHAIKU(1)



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 <ingo_weinholdATgmx.de>.
