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 perl5/5.16.2/BePC-haiku/CORE/ . Replace 5.16.2 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: <> The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold <>. Last update: 2008-10-29 perl v5.16.2 2012-10-25 PERLHAIKU(1)

perlbeos - Perl version 5.8+ on BeOS DESCRIPTION
This file contains instructions how to build Perl under BeOS and lists known problems. BUILD AND INSTALL
Requirements I have built and tested Perl 5.8.6 and 5.9.1 under BeOS R5 x86 net server. I can't say anything with regard to PPC. Since Perl 5.8.0 had been released for BeOS BONE, I suspect, there is a good chance, that it still compiles on a BONE system. The only change I've made, that affects BONE systems is the recognition of whether it is a BONE system or not in hints/ Now network socket support should remain enabled on BONE systems. This might as well break the build, though. As more recent versions of autoconf require flock() support, I wrote a flock() emulation (flock_server) and released it on BeBits: If you want to build a Perl with flock() support, you have to install this package first. Configure With flock() support: CFLAGS=-I/path/to/flock/server/headers ./configure.gnu --prefix=/boot/home/config Replace "/path/to/flock/server/headers" with the path to the directory containing the "flock.h" header. Without flock() support: ./configure.gnu --prefix=/boot/home/config Build With flock() support: make LDLOADLIBS="-lnet -lflock" Without flock() support: make LDLOADLIBS="-lnet" "-lnet" is needed on net server systems only and if the compiler doesn't add it automatically (Be's R5 gcc does, Oliver Tappe's gcc 2.95.3 does not). Install Install all perl files: make install Create a symlink for libperl: cd ~/config/lib; ln -s perl5/5.8.6/BePC-beos/CORE/ . Replace 5.8.6 with your respective version of Perl. KNOWN PROBLEMS
o Network socket support is disabled for BeOS R5 net server. I didn't dare yet to try enabling it and see what problems occur. o The LFS (large file support) tests (t/op/lfs and xt/Fcntl/t/syslfs) are disabled as seeking beyond 2 GB is broken according to who was the last one checking the BeOS port and updating this file before me. Haven't checked this myself. o The t/io/fflush test fails at #6. As far as I can tell, this is caused by a bug in the BeOS pipes implementation that occurs when starting other child processes. In the particular test case a "system("perl -e 0")" flushes the stdout pipe of another child process. o The ext/POSIX/t/waitpid test fails at #1. After all child processes are gone BeOS' waitpid(-1,...) returns 0 instead of -1 (as it should). No idea how to fix this. CONTACT
