This is an initial port of Perl5.8.5 to Amiga OS4.0.
Amiga release .06
It is a totally native port and requires no ixemul!

Perl (practical extraction and report language) was originally written
by Larry Wall et al. See www.perl.org for more info.

This port was done by Andy Broad <andy()broad.ology.org> please direct all
queries to andy()broad.ology.org in the first instance.


This is the source disstribution. Okay I admit it's not pretty, the source
could do with a good tidying up, bits and pieces are all over.

This distribution comes pre configured as the configuration process is not
AS it's preconfigured it's agood deal larger than the original perl distibution
I have removed many of the file pertaining to other architectures, keeping only
the windows ones as these were the inspiration for the fork emulation.

It is set up to build with implicit threads, and the fork emualtion introduced
for windows has been adapted to amigaos4 purposes.

If you wish to change the configuration you should edit config.sh rather than
Configure (at least back up config.sh before you try Configure!).

The easiest way to add (or remove) static extentions is to unpack the module
perl-5.8.5/ext/ and then add the module to the various list of static and known
extentions in config.sh. Remeber to run all the .SH files after altering
config.sh or your changes may not get prpagated correctly.

Then run make.
