NAME ^

Devel::PatchPerl - Patch perl source a la Devel::PPPort's buildperl.pl

VERSION ^

version 1.28

SYNOPSIS ^

  use strict;
  use warnings;

  use Devel::PatchPerl;

  Devel::PatchPerl->patch_source( '5.6.1', '/path/to/untarred/perl/source/perl-5.6.1' );

DESCRIPTION ^

Devel::PatchPerl is a modularisation of the patching code contained in Devel::PPPort's buildperl.pl.

It does not build perls, it merely provides an interface to the source patching functionality.

FUNCTION ^

patch_source

Takes two parameters, a perl version and the path to unwrapped perl source for that version. It dies on any errors.

If you don't supply a perl version, it will attempt to auto-determine the perl version from the specified path.

If you don't supply the path to unwrapped perl source, it will assume the current working directory.

determine_version

Takes one optional parameter, the path to unwrapped perl source. It returns the perl version of the source code at the given location. It returns undef on error.

If you don't supply the path to unwrapped perl source, it will assume the current working directory.

PLUGIN SYSTEM ^

See Devel::PatchPerl::Plugin for details of Devel::PatchPerl's plugin system.

CAVEAT ^

Devel::PatchPerl is intended only to facilitate the building of perls, not to facilitate the testing of perls. This means that it will not patch failing tests in the perl testsuite.
