    7 perlhaiku - Perl version 5.10+ on Haiku
    8 
    9 =head1 DESCRIPTION
   10 
   11 This file contains instructions how to build Perl for Haiku and lists
   12 known problems.
   13 
   14 =head1 BUILD AND INSTALL
   15 
   16 The build procedure is completely standard:
   17 
   18   ./Configure -de
   19   make
   20   make install
   21 
   22 Make perl executable and create a symlink for libperl:
   23 
   24   chmod a+x /boot/common/bin/perl
   25   cd /boot/common/lib; ln -s perl5/5.30.3/BePC-haiku/CORE/libperl.so .
   26 
   27 Replace C<5.30.3> with your respective version of Perl.

   29 =head1 KNOWN PROBLEMS
   30 
   31 The following problems are encountered with Haiku revision 28311:

   34 
   35 =item *
   36 
   37 Perl cannot be compiled with threading support ATM.
   38 
   39 =item *
   40 
   41 The F<cpan/Socket/t/socketpair.t> test fails. More precisely: the subtests
   42 using datagram sockets fail. Unix datagram sockets aren't implemented in
   43 Haiku yet.
   44 
   45 =item *
   46 
   47 A subtest of the F<cpan/Sys-Syslog/t/syslog.t> test fails. This is due to Haiku
   48 not implementing F</dev/log> support yet.
   49 
   50 =item *
   51 
   52 The tests F<dist/Net-Ping/t/450_service.t> and F<dist/Net-Ping/t/510_ping_udp.t>
   53 fail. This is due to bugs in Haiku's network stack implementation.
