PERLIVP(1)	       Perl Programmers Reference Guide		    PERLIVP(1)

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 function.  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 misleading 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 installation.
	   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 installation consult
       the INSTALL file that comes with the perl source and the README file
       for your platform.
