NAME
       perlriscos - Perl version 5 for RISC OS

DESCRIPTION
       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
       <http://www.cp15.org/perl/> which you may wish to use instead of trying to compile it
       yourself.

BUILD
       You need an installed and working gccsdk cross compiler <http://gccsdk.riscos.info/> and
       REXEN <http://www.cp15.org/programming/>

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

       1.
	       $ ./Configure

       2.  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 command-line.

       3.
	       $ make miniperl

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

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

       6.
	       $ make

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