$ perl -v
This is perl, v5.10.0 built for arm-linux-gnueabi-thread-multi
Please note: this is not perfect, it may not work properly, use at your own risk. I’ve only tried doing some very basic tests so far, so if you have any problems, please post to this thread. This package was based on the debian armel packages. I’ve been working on a custom cross-compile of perl, but here’s something to play with in the meanwhile.
Some environment variables have to be set up beforehand.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH: must be set to the directory where libperl is located.
PERL5LIB: A list of direcotries in which to look for perl modules. If you decide to install more perl modules, I’d suggest putting them in a different directory inside DroboApps so they don’t get overwritten if/when there’s an updated version of this package. Multiple directories can be specified by PERL5LIB by using ‘:’.
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/mnt/DroboShares/Drobo/DroboApps/perl/lib
$ export PERL5LIB=/mnt/DroboShares/Drobo/DroboApps/perl/share/perl/5.10.0
$ cat test.pl
my $foo = “bar”;
print “foo is $foo.\n”;
foo is bar.
