README.macos - Perl under Mac OS (Classic)
This document briefly describes perl under Mac OS (Classic). If you
are running perl under Mac OS X, you don't want to be here (unless you
are in the Classic environment under early versions of Mac OS X).
When we say "Mac OS" below, we mean Mac OS 7, 8, and 9, and not Mac OS
The port of Perl to to Mac OS was officially removed as of Perl 5.12,
though the last offical production release of MacPerl corresponded to
Perl 5.6. While Perl 5.10 included the port to Mac OS,
ExtUtils::MakeMaker, a core part of Perl's module installation
infrastructure officially dropped support for Mac OS in April 2004.
Historical information (and working binaries of the last released
version) are available from <http://dev.macperl.org> as of October
perl was ported to Mac OS by Matthias Neeracher <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Chris Nandor <email@example.com> continued development and maintenance
for the duration of the port's life.
