NAME
perlhaiku - 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 perl5/5.16.3/BePC-haiku/CORE/libperl.so . Replace 5.16.3 with your respective version of Perl.
KNOWN PROBLEMS
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.
