-*Alternative Instructions*
-** Requirements **
-In order to build perl for ASE, you need:
-* ASE source - includes the Perl interpreter (A.K.A., perl)
-* AGCC - GCC for Arm (A.K.A., agcc)
-* The Arm EABI Toolchain (A.K.A., arm-eabi-toolchain)
-* Java 5 (in case you want to compile Android)
-The ASE source can be fetched from the ASE website.
-It includes the agcc wrapper as well under "tools".
-The arm-eabi-toolchain can be fetched from this github repo:
-It includes instructions on how to install it on Ubuntu.
-These instructions assume you do not need to install or compile Android itself,
-but if you find that you do (whether by choice or force), you need to install
-Java 5 which can be fetched from Sun's java website. Check for "older version"
-of Java.
-** Compiling **
-Once you have downloaded all components and installed the arm toolchain, build
-them using the instructions in the repo.
