NAME
       README.riscos - 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:

       o
	       $ ./Configure

       o   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.

       o
	       $ make miniperl

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

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

       o
	       $ make

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