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.

CONTACT
       For Haiku specific problems contact the HaikuPorts developers:
       http://ports.haiku-files.org/ <http://ports.haiku-files.org/>

       The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>.
