NAMEREADME.haiku - Perl version 5.10+ on Haiku
DESCRIPTIONThis file contains instructions how to build Perl for Haiku and lists known problems.
BUILD AND INSTALLThe 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 .
KNOWN PROBLEMSThe 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.
CONTACTFor Haiku specific problems contact the HaikuPorts developers: http://ports.haiku-files.org/
The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
