Devel::PatchPerl(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  Devel::PatchPerl(3)

NAME
       Devel::PatchPerl	- Patch	perl source a la Devel::PPPort's buildperl.pl

VERSION
       version 2.08

SYNOPSIS
	 use strict;
	 use warnings;

	 use Devel::PatchPerl;

	 Devel::PatchPerl->patch_source( '5.6.1', '/path/to/untarred/perl/source/perl-5.6.1' );

DESCRIPTION
       Devel::PatchPerl	is a modularisation of the patching code contained in
       Devel::PPPort's "buildperl.pl".

       It does not build perls,	it merely provides an interface	to the source
       patching	functionality.

FUNCTION
       "patch_source"
	   Takes two parameters, a "perl" version and the path to unwrapped
	   perl	source for that	version.  It dies on any errors.

	   If you don't	supply a "perl"	version, it will attempt to auto-
	   determine the "perl"	version	from the specified path.

	   If you don't	supply the path	to unwrapped perl source, it will
	   assume the current working directory.

       "determine_version"
	   Takes one optional parameter, the path to unwrapped perl source. It
	   returns the perl version of the source code at the given location.
	   It returns undef on error.

	   If you don't	supply the path	to unwrapped perl source, it will
	   assume the current working directory.

PLUGIN SYSTEM
       See Devel::PatchPerl::Plugin for	details	of Devel::PatchPerl's plugin
       system.

PATCHLEVEL
       Devel::PatchPerl	will normally update the "patchlevel.h"	file in	the
       perl source tree	to indicate that it has	applied	local patches. This
       behaviour is negated if it is detected that it is operating in a	git
       repository. To override this and	update "patchlevel.h" when in a	Git
       repository, set the env var "PERL5_PATCHPERL_PATCHLEVEL"	to a true
       value.

       Alternatively, call "patchperl" with the	"--patchlevel" option.

CAVEAT
       Devel::PatchPerl	is intended only to facilitate the "building" of
       perls, not to facilitate	the "testing" of perls.	This means that	it
       will not	patch failing tests in the perl	testsuite.
