NAME

     perlivp - Perl Installation Verification Procedure

SYNOPSIS

     perlivp [-a] [-p] [-v] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

     The perlivp program is set up at Perl source code build time
     to test the Perl version it was built under.  It can be used
     after running:

         make install

     (or your platform's equivalent procedure) to verify that
     perl and its libraries have been installed correctly.  A
     correct installation is verified by output that looks like:

         ok 1
         ok 2

     etc.

OPTIONS

     -h help
          Prints out a brief help message.

     -a run all tests
          Normally tests for optional features are skipped.  With
          -a all tests are executed.

     -p print preface
          Gives a description of each test prior to performing
          it.

     -v verbose
          Gives more detailed information about each test, after
          it has been performed. Note that any failed tests ought
          to print out some extra information whether or not -v
          is thrown.

DIAGNOSTICS

     * print "# Perl binary `$perlpath' does not appear
      executable.\n";
         Likely to occur for a perl binary that was not properly
         installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

     * print "# Perl version `$]' installed, expected
      $ivp_VERSION.\n";
         Likely to occur for a perl that was not properly
         installed. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

     * print "# Perl \@INC directory `$_' does not appear to

      exist.\n";
         Likely to occur for a perl library tree that was not
         properly installed. Correct by conducting a proper
         installation.

     * print "# Needed module `$_' does not appear to be properly
      installed.\n";
         One of the two modules that is used by perlivp was not
         present in the installation.  This is a serious error
         since it adversely affects perlivp's ability to func-
         tion.  You may be able to correct this by performing a
         proper perl installation.

     * print "# Required module `$_' does not appear to be properly
      installed.\n";
         An attempt to "eval "require $module"" failed, even
         though the list of extensions indicated that it should
         succeed.  Correct by conducting a proper installation.

     * print "# Unnecessary module `bLuRfle' appears to be
      installed.\n";
         This test not coming out ok could indicate that you have
         in fact installed a bLuRfle.pm module or that the "eval
         " require \"$module_name.pm\"; "" test may give mislead-
         ing results with your installation of perl.  If yours is
         the latter case then please let the author know.

     * print "# file",+($#missing == 0) ? '' : 's'," missing from
      installation:\n";
         One or more files turned up missing according to a run
         of "ExtUtils::Installed -> validate()" over your instal-
         lation. Correct by conducting a proper installation.

     * print "# Perl header `$_' does not appear to be properly
      installed.\n";
         Correct by running h2ph over your system's C header
         files.  If necessary, edit the resulting *.ph files to
         eliminate perl syntax errors.

     For further information on how to conduct a proper installa-
     tion consult the INSTALL file that comes with the perl
     source and the README file for your platform.
