This file contains instructions how to build Perl for Haiku and lists
BUILD AND INSTALL
The build procedure is completely standard:
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.
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.
For Haiku specific problems contact the HaikuPorts developers:
The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold
