PERLHAIKU(1)	       Perl Programmers	Reference Guide		  PERLHAIKU(1)

NAME
       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 perl5/5.35.5/BePC-haiku/CORE/libperl.so .

       Replace 5.35.5 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 cpan/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 cpan/Sys-Syslog/t/syslog.t test fails. This	is due
	   to Haiku not	implementing /dev/log support yet.

       o   The tests dist/Net-Ping/t/450_service.t and
	   dist/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:
       <http://ports.haiku-files.org/>

       The initial Haiku port was done by Ingo Weinhold
       <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>.
