       README.riscos - Perl version 5 for RISC OS

       This document gives instructions for building Perl for RISC OS. It is complicated by the need to cross compile.
       There is a binary version of perl available from <>; which you may wish to use instead
       of trying to compile it yourself.

       You need an installed and working gccsdk cross compiler <>; and REXEN

       Firstly, copy the source and build a native copy of perl for your host system.  Then, in the source to be cross


               $ ./Configure

       ?   Select the riscos hint file. The default answers for the rest of the questions are usually sufficient.

           Note that, if you wish to run Configure non-interactively (see the INSTALL document for details), to have
           it select the correct hint file, you'll need to provide the argument -Dhintfile=riscos on the Configure


               $ make miniperl

       ?   This should build miniperl and then fail when it tries to run it.

       ?   Copy the miniperl executable from the native build done earlier to replace the cross compiled miniperl.


               $ make

       ?   This will use miniperl to complete the rest of the build.
