NAME
       perlivp - Perl Installation Verification Procedure

SYNOPSIS
       perlivp [-a] [-p] [-v] [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       The perlivp program is set up at Perl source code build time to test the Perl version it
       was built under.  It can be used after running:

	   make install

       (or your platform's equivalent procedure) to verify that perl and its libraries have been
       installed correctly.  A correct installation is verified by output that looks like:

	   ok 1
	   ok 2

       etc.

OPTIONS
       -h help
	    Prints out a brief help message.

       -a run all tests
	    Normally tests for optional features are skipped.  With -a all tests are executed.

       -p print preface
	    Gives a description of each test prior to performing it.

       -v verbose
	    Gives more detailed information about each test, after it has been performed.  Note
	    that any failed tests ought to print out some extra information whether or not -v is
	    thrown.

DIAGNOSTICS
       * print "# Perl binary `$perlpath' does not appear executable.\n";
	   Likely to occur for a perl binary that was not properly installed.  Correct by con-
	   ducting a proper installation.

       * print "# Perl version `$]' installed, expected $ivp_VERSION.\n";
	   Likely to occur for a perl that was not properly installed.	Correct by conducting a
	   proper installation.

       * print "# Perl \@INC directory `$_' does not appear to exist.\n";
	   Likely to occur for a perl library tree that was not properly installed.  Correct by
	   conducting a proper installation.

       * print "# Needed module `$_' does not appear to be properly installed.\n";
	   One of the two modules that is used by perlivp was not present in the installation.
	   This is a serious error since it adversely affects perlivp's ability to function.  You
	   may be able to correct this by performing a proper perl installation.

       * print "# Required module `$_' does not appear to be properly installed.\n";
	   An attempt to "eval "require $module"" failed, even though the list of extensions
	   indicated that it should succeed.  Correct by conducting a proper installation.

       * print "# Unnecessary module `bLuRfle' appears to be installed.\n";
	   This test not coming out ok could indicate that you have in fact installed a bLuR-
	   fle.pm module or that the "eval " require \"$module_name.pm\"; "" test may give mis-
	   leading results with your installation of perl.  If yours is the latter case then
	   please let the author know.

       * print "# file",+($#missing == 0) ? '' : 's'," missing from installation:\n";
	   One or more files turned up missing according to a run of "ExtUtils::Installed -> val-
	   idate()" over your installation.  Correct by conducting a proper installation.

       * print "# Perl header `$_' does not appear to be properly installed.\n";
	   Correct by running h2ph over your system's C header files.  If necessary, edit the
	   resulting *.ph files to eliminate perl syntax errors.

       For further information on how to conduct a proper installation consult the INSTALL file
       that comes with the perl source and the README file for your platform.
