       This document briefly describes perl under Mac OS (Clas­
       sic).  If you are running perl under Mac OS X, you don't
       want to be here (unless you are in the Classic environment
       under Mac OS X).

       When we say "Mac OS" below, we mean Mac OS 7, 8, and 9,
       and not Mac OS X.


       The latest perl source itself builds on Mac OS, with some
       additional pieces. Support for Mac OS is now in the perl
       core, and MacPerl is kept in close sync with regular perl

       To build perl for Mac OS (as an MPW tool), you will need
       the addition of the macos subdirectory, distributed sepa­
       rately.  It includes extra source files, config files, and
       make files.  It also includes extra Mac-specific modules.

       To build the MacPerl application, you will also need the
       macperl directory, which includes the source files for
       creating the application itself.

       All of this is available from the development site, via
       HTTP (in the MacPerl Installer, which includes all the
       source and binaries) and anonymous CVS.


       The source is also in the main perl repository in the
       macperl branch (the 5.6 source is in the maint-5.6/macperl

       You will also need compilers and libraries, all of them
       freely available.  These are linked to from the Source­
       Forge site. Go that site for all things having to do with
       MacPerl development.

       MacPerl 5.6.1 and later are supported on Mac OS 8.1 and
       later, for 68040 and PowerPC architectures.  The MPW tool
       may be used on Mac OS 7.5.5 and 68030 computers.

       MacPerl 5.2.0r4 is also available, on the CPAN and on
       SourceForge.  It is based on perl 5.004, and works with
       Mac OS 7.5.5 and 68030 computers.


       perl was ported to Mac OS by Matthias Neeracher <neer­
       acher@mac.com>.  It is currently maintained by Chris Nan­
       dor <pudge@pobox.com>.
