perlivp

Perl Installation Verification Procedure

SYNOPSIS

Header "SYNOPSIS" perlivp [ -p ][ -v ][ -h ]

DESCRIPTION

Header "DESCRIPTION" The perlivp program is set up at Perl source code build time to test the Perl version it was built under. It can be used after running:

1 make install

(or your platform's equivalent procedure) to verify that perl and its libraries have been installed correctly. A correct installation is verified by output that looks like:

2 ok 1 ok 2

etc.

OPTIONS

Header "OPTIONS"

" -h help" 5 Item "-h help" Prints out a brief help message.

" -p print preface" 5 Item "-p print preface" Gives a description of each test prior to performing it.

" -v verbose" 5 Item "-v verbose" Gives more detailed information about each test, after it has been performed. Note that any failed tests ought to print out some extra information whether or not -v is thrown.

DIAGNOSTICS

Header "DIAGNOSTICS"

" 4 print (L"# Perl binary '$perlpath' does not appear executable. \ n (R"; Likely to occur for a perl binary that was not properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

" 4 print (L"# Perl version '$]' installed, expected CW$ivp_VERSION .\ n (R"; Likely to occur for a perl that was not properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

" 4 print (L"# Perl \ @INC directory '$_' does not appear to exist. \ n (R"; Likely to occur for a perl library tree that was not properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

" 4 print (L"# Needed module '$_' does not appear to be properly installed. \ n (R"; One of the two modules that is used by perlivp was not present in the installation. This is a serious error since it adversely affects perlivp's ability to function. You may be able to correct this by performing a proper perl installation.

" 4 print (L"# Required module '$_' does not appear to be properly installed. \ n (R"; An attempt to CW(C`eval "require $module" (C' failed, even though the list of extensions indicated that it should succeed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

" 4 print (L"# Unnecessary module 'bLuRfle' appears to be installed. \ n (R"; This test not coming out ok could indicate that you have in fact installed a bLuRfle.pm module or that the CW(C`eval " require \ "$module_name.pm \ ; (C' test may give misleading results with your installation of perl. If yours is the latter case then please let the author know.

" 4 print (L"# file (R",+($#missing == 0) ? '' : 's', (L" missing from installation: \ n (R"; One or more files turned up missing according to a run of CW(C`ExtUtils::Installed -> validate() (C' over your installation. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

For further information on how to conduct a proper installation consult the INSTALLfile that comes with the perl source and the READMEfile for your platform.
