Perl::Dist::Strawberry::Libraries - Library installation routines for Strawberry Perl
# This is used as an 'additive base" class for # Perl::Dist::Strawberry and is not intended for use outside of # Perl::Dist::Strawberry subclasses.
Strawberry Perl is a binary distribution of Perl for the Windows operating system. It includes a bundled compiler and pre-installed modules that offer the ability to install XS CPAN modules directly from CPAN.
The purpose of the Strawberry Perl series is to provide a practical Win32 Perl environment for experienced Perl developers to experiment with and test the installation of various CPAN modules under Win32 conditions, and to provide a useful platform for doing real work.
This class adds additional methods that provide installation support for tools that are included in Strawberry Perl.
install_patch method can be used to install a copy of the Unix patch program into the distribution.
Returns true or throws an exception on error.
bin_patch method returns the location of the patch.exe file installed by "install_patch".
Installs the PPM module, and then customises the temp path to live underneath the strawberry dist.
$dist->install_win32_manifest( 'WX Perl' => 'perl', 'bin', 'wxperl.exe' );
Installs a manifest file to make an executable binary look like a "real" Win32 program.
install_pari method install (via a PAR package) libpari and the Math::Pari module into the distribution.
This method should only be called at during the install_modules phase.
install_librarypack method installs a library defined in
install_libmysql method installs a library defined in
install_librarypacks method installs a list of libraries defined in
Bugs should be reported via the CPAN bug tracker at
Please note that only bugs in the distribution itself or the CPAN configuration should be reported to RT. Bugs in individual modules should be reported to their respective distributions.
