Perl Packages for Debian
========================

  perl             - Larry Wall's Practical Extracting and Report Language.
  perl-base        - The Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister.
  perl-doc         - Perl documentation.
  perl-debug       - Debug-enabled Perl interpreter.
  libperl5.24      - Shared Perl library.
  perl-modules-5.24 - Architecture independent core Perl modules.
  libperl-dev      - Perl library: development files.

To provide a minimal working perl, the ``perl-base'' package provides
the /usr/bin/perl binary plus a basic set of libraries.

The remainder of the application is included in the perl, perl-modules-5.24
and perl-doc packages.

See the 'README.source' file in the perl source package for information
on building the package.

perl-suid removed
=================

suidperl was removed upstream with 5.12, so the perl-suid package which
used to be distributed in Debian has been removed too. Possible alternatives
include using a simple setuid C wrapper to execute a perl script from a
hard-coded location, or using a more general tool like sudo.
