NAME
       SDL-Platform - Platform Specific	Informations about SDL Perl

CATEGORY
       Documentation

DESCRIPTION
       This document describes OS specific informations	regading the
       installation and	use of SDL.

   General (all	OS)
       You need	to install Alien::SDL to acquire all prerequisites of SDL.

       On Windows, Alien::SDL will get you zip-files containing	prebuilt libs.

       On Unixes you can choose	between	compiling libs or use libs provided by
       the dist.  The different	options	on Unixes are availale when
       requirements are	met. Like having specific libs installed.

       There is	some additional	documentation in the Github-Wiki
       <https://github.com/PerlGameDev/SDL/wiki/Testing>.  You definitively
       want to look there, if you want to know how to install SDL from the
       latest sources (e.g. in an unfinished, unreleased state).

Windows
   Installation
       We recommend Strawberry Perl. You can get it here
       <http://strawberryperl.com/>.

       Once you	installed Strawberry Perl, you can access the cpan shell via
       the start menu.

       Open up the cpan	shell and type "install	Alien::SDL SDL". Please	follow
       the dialog and answer the questions to the best of your knowledge.

Mac OS X
   Installation
       You will	need a newer version of	Perl that you can install with
       App::perlbrew.

       Once you	have a newer Perl installed please use "cpan" to install
       Alien::SDL (and of course SDL).

   Using SDL on	Mac OS X
       You can't use the "perl"	executable to run SDL scripts on Mac OS	X, you
       need to use "SDLPerl".  When you	install	SDL, a program named "SDLPerl"
       is installed. It	should be in your path.

       Using Mac OS X, your SDL	Perl script have to look like this:

	 #!SDLPerl

	 use strict;
	 use warnings;
	 use SDL;
	 # your	code here ...

       Using the wrong Perl executable,	you might encounter a lot of error
       messages	resulting in "terminate	called after throwing an instance of
       'NSException'".	cf. the	corresponding github issue
       <https://github.com/PerlGameDev/SDL/issues/208>.
