Support for Mac OS is now in the perl core, and MacPerl is keptin close sync with regular perl releases.To build perl for Mac OS (as an MPW tool), you will need the additionof the F<macos> subdirectory, distributed separately. It includes extrasource files, config files, and make files. It also includes extraMac-specific modules.To build the MacPerl application, you will also need the F<macperl>directory, which includes the source files for creating theapplication itself.All of this is available from the development site, viaHTTP (in the MacPerl Installer, which includes all the sourceand binaries) and anonymous CVS. http://dev.macperl.org/The source is also in the main perl repository in the macperlbranch (the 5.6 source is in the maint-5.6/macperl branch).You will also need compilers and libraries, all of them freelyavailable. These are linked to from the SourceForge site. Go that sitefor all things having to do with MacPerl development.MacPerl 5.6.1 and later are supported on Mac OS 8.1 and later, for 68040and PowerPC architectures. The MPW tool may be used on Mac OS 7.5.5and 68030 computers.MacPerl 5.2.0r4 is also available, on the CPAN and on SourceForge. Itis based on perl 5.004, and works with Mac OS 7.5.5 and 68030 computers.=head1 AUTHORperl was ported to Mac OS by Matthias NeeracherE<lt>email@example.comE<gt>.
