Install SDL

    cpan SDL

Testing Bleed

Getting SDL Dependecies To test please INSTALL SDL first.

Only If you are on Linux you need the following dependencies:


    $ sudo apt-get install libsdl-net1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsmpeg-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev libsdl-pango-dev


    $ sudo zypper in libSDL-devel libSDL_gfx-devel libSDL_image-devel libSDL_mixer-devel libSDL_net-devel libSDL_ttf-devel libsmpeg-devel

On Windows we recommend using Strawberry Perl. It comes with SDL-1.2.13 header files and libs included.

Both Windows and Linux needs to install Alien::SDL

    $ sudo cpan Alien::SDL


You will need a newer version of perl that you can install with App::perlbrew.

Once you have a newer perl installed please use cpan to install Alien::SDL.

Getting Bleeding SDL The Bleeding SDL is on github . You will need to install git.

To get the code:

    $ git clone git://

go into the SDL_perl folder

    $ cd SDL

and switch to the experimental branch

    $ git checkout -b experimental origin/experimental

Congrats now you have the code. You can play here but if you want to test we need to setup a little bit more.

    $ cpan -t . 

Send the output to our mailing list.
