NAME ^

Inline-Support - Support Information for Inline.pm and related modules.

DESCRIPTION ^

This document contains all of the latest support information for Inline.pm and the recognized Inline Language Support Modules (ILSMs) available on CPAN.

SUPPORTED LANGUAGES ^

The most important language that Inline supports is C. That is because Perl itself is written in C. By giving a your Perl scripts access to C, you in effect give them access to the entire glorious internals of Perl. (Caveat scriptor :-)

As of this writing, Inline also supports:

Projects that I would most like to see happen in the year 2001 are:

SUPPORTED PLATFORMS ^

Inline::C should work anywhere that CPAN extension modules (those that use XS) can be installed, using the typical install format of:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make
    make test
    make install

It has been tested on many Unix and Windows variants.

NOTE: Inline::C requires Perl 5.005 or higher because Parse::RecDescent requires it. (Something to do with the qr operator)

Inline has been successfully tested at one time or another on the following platforms:

The Microsoft tests deserve a little more explanation. I used the following:

Inline::C pulls all of its base configuration (including which make utility to use) from Config.pm. Since your MSWin32 version of Perl probably came from ActiveState (as a binary distribution) the Config.pm will indicate that nmake is the system's make utility. That is because ActiveState uses Visual C++ to compile Perl.

To install Inline.pm (or any other CPAN module) on MSWin32 w/ Visual C++, use these:

    perl Makefile.PL
    nmake
    nmake test
    nmake install

Inline has also been made to work with Mingw32/gcc on all Windows platforms. This is a free compiler for Windows. You must also use a perl built with that compiler.

The "Cygwin" test was done on a Windows 98 machine using the Cygwin Unix/Win32 porting layer software from Cygnus. The perl binary on this machine was also compiled using the Cygwin tool set (gcc). This software is freely available from http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/

If you get Inline to work on a new platform, please send me email email. If it doesn't work, let me know as well and I'll see what can be done.
