<p>perlamiga - Perl under AmigaOS 4.1</p>
<a name="NOTE"></a><h1>NOTE</h1>
<p>This is a port of Perl 5.22.1, it is a fresh port and not in any way
compatible with my previous ports of Perl 5.8 and 5.16.3. This means
you will need to reinstall / rebuild any third party modules you have
installed.</p>
<p>newlib.library version 53.28 or greater is required.</p>
<a name="SYNOPSIS"></a><h1>SYNOPSIS</h1>
<p>Once perl is installed you can read this document in the following way</p>
<pre class="verbatim"><ol><li>	<span class="w">sh</span> -c <span class="q">&quot;perldoc perlamiga&quot;</span></li></ol></pre><p>or you may read <i>as is</i>: either as <i>README.amiga</i>, or <i>pod/perlamiga.pod</i>.</p>
<a name="DESCRIPTION"></a><h1>DESCRIPTION</h1>
<a name="Prerequisites-for-running-Perl-5.22.1-under-AmigaOS-4.1"></a><h2>Prerequisites for running Perl 5.22.1 under AmigaOS 4.1</h2>
<ul>
<li><a name="*AmigaOS-4.1-update-6-with-all-updates-applied-as-of-9th-October-2013*"></a><b><b>AmigaOS 4.1 update 6 with all updates applied as of 9th October 2013</b></b>
<p>The most important of which is:</p>
</li>
<li><a name="*newlib.library-version-53.28-or-greater*"></a><b><b>newlib.library version 53.28 or greater</b></b>
</li>
<li><a name="*AmigaOS-SDK*"></a><b><b>AmigaOS SDK</b></b>
<p>Perl installs into the SDK directory structure and expects many of the
build tools present in the SDK to be available. So for the best results
install the SDK first.</p>
</li>
<li><a name="*abc-shell*"></a><b><b>abc-shell</b></b>
<p>If you do not have the SDK installed you must at least have abc-shell
installed or some other suitable sh port. This is required to run
external commands and should be available as 'sh' in your path.</p>
</li>
</ul>
<a name="Starting-Perl-programs-under-AmigaOS-4.1"></a><h2>Starting Perl programs under AmigaOS 4.1</h2>
<p>Perl may be run from the AmigaOS shell but for best results should be
run under abc-shell.  (abc-shell handles file globbing, pattern
expansion, and sets up environment variables in the UN*Xy way that
Perl expects.)</p>
<p>For example:</p>
<pre class="verbatim"><ol><li>	<span class="w">New</span> <span class="w">Shell</span> <span class="w">process</span> <span class="n">10</span></li><li>	<span class="n">10.</span><span class="w">AmigaOS4</span><span class="co">:</span>&gt; <span class="w">sh</span></li><li>	/<span class="w">AmigaOS4</span>&gt;<span class="w">perl</span> <span class="w">path</span><span class="co">:</span><span class="w">to</span>/<span class="w">myprog</span> <span class="w">arg1</span> <span class="w">arrg2</span> <span class="w">arg3</span></li></ol></pre><p>Abc-shell can also launch programs via the #! syntax at the start of
the program file, it's best use the form #!SDK:Local/C/perl so that
the AmigaOS shell may also find perl in the same way. AmigaOS requires
the script bit to be set for this to work</p>
<pre class="verbatim"><ol><li>	<span class="n">10.</span><span class="w">AmigaOS4</span><span class="co">:</span>&gt; <span class="w">sh</span></li><li>	/<span class="w">AmigaOS4</span>&gt;<span class="w">myprog</span> <span class="w">arg1</span> <span class="w">arrg2</span> <span class="w">arg3</span></li></ol></pre><a name="Limitations-of-Perl-under-AmigaOS-4.1"></a><h2>Limitations of Perl under AmigaOS 4.1</h2>
<ul>
<li><a name="*Nested-Piped-programs-can-crash-when-run-from-older-abc-shells*"></a><b><b>Nested Piped programs can crash when run from older abc-shells</b></b>
<p>abc-shell version 53.2 has a bug that can cause crashes in the
subprocesses used to run piped programs, if a later version is
available you should install it instead.</p>
</li>
<li><a name="*Incorrect-or-unexpected-command-line-unescaping*"></a><b><b>Incorrect or unexpected command line unescaping</b></b>
<p>newlib.library 53.30 and earlier incorrectly unescape slashed escape
sequences e.g. \" \n \t etc requiring unusual extra escaping.</p>
</li>
<li><a name="*Starting-subprocesses-via-open-has-limitations*"></a><b><b>Starting subprocesses via open has limitations</b></b>
<pre class="verbatim"><ol><li>	<a class="l_k" href="functions/open.html">open</a> <span class="w">FH</span><span class="cm">,</span> <span class="q">&quot;command |&quot;</span></li></ol></pre><p>Subprocesses started with open use a minimal popen() routine and
therefore they do not return pids usable with waitpid etc.</p>
</li>
<li><a name="If-you-find-any-other-limitations-or-bugs-then-let-me-know."></a><b>If you find any other limitations or bugs then let me know.</b>
<p>Please report bugs in this version of perl to andy@broad.ology.org.uk
in the first instance.</p>
</li>
</ul>
<a name="INSTALLATION"></a><h1>INSTALLATION</h1>
<p>This guide assumes you have obtained a prebuilt archive from os4depot.net.</p>
<p>Unpack the main archive to a temporary location (RAM: is fine).</p>
<p>Execute the provided install script from shell or via its icon.</p>
<p>You <b>must not</b> attempt to install by hand.</p>
<p>Once installed you may delete the temporary archive.</p>
<p>This approach will preserve links in the installation without creating
duplicate binaries.</p>
<p>If you have the earlier ports perl 5.16 or 5.8 installed you may like
to rename your perl executable to perl516 or perl58 or something
similar before the installation of 5.22.1, this will allow you to use
both versions at the same time.</p>
<a name="Amiga-Specific-Modules"></a><h1>Amiga Specific Modules</h1>
<a name="Amiga%3a%3aARexx"></a><h2>Amiga::ARexx</h2>
<p>The Amiga::ARexx module allows you to easily create a perl based ARexx
host or to send ARexx commands to other programs.</p>
<p>Try <code class="inline"><span class="w">perldoc</span> <span class="w">Amiga::ARexx</span></code>
 for more info.</p>
<a name="Amiga%3a%3aExec"></a><h2>Amiga::Exec</h2>
<p>The Amiga::Exec module introduces support for Wait().</p>
<p>Try <code class="inline"><span class="w">perldoc</span> <span class="w">Amiga::Exec</span></code>
 for more info.</p>
<a name="BUILDING"></a><h1>BUILDING</h1>
<p>To build perl under AmigaOS from the patched sources you will need to
have a recent version of the SDK. Version 53.29 is recommended,
earlier versions will probably work too.</p>
<p>With the help of Jarkko Hietaniemi the Configure system has been tweaked to
run under abc-shell so the recommend build process is as follows.</p>
<pre class="verbatim"><ol><li>	<span class="w">stack</span> <span class="n">2000000</span></li><li>	<span class="w">sh</span> <span class="w">Configure</span> -<span class="w">de</span></li><li>	<span class="w">gmake</span></li></ol></pre><p>This will build the default setup that installs under SDK:local/newlib/lib/</p>
