perl5 for BeOS.

Larry Wall's language to do everything under the sun, and more.
Find out more about perl at http://www.perl.com/perl/ .

R4 x86 5.00503release now has dynamic loading (and compiling) of
modules - this means you can compile your own modules without
recompiling the perl source. (`cpan` and then 'i' is how you see what
modules are availible. There's an awful lot of 'em.)

Also, the perl source (availible from
http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/latest.tgz) compiles (almost) without
intervention, if you read README.beos.

R4 PPC will have a new version once I recover my BeBox's disk. (use
the R3 release until then.)

none of the versions of perl support Errno or sockets.

All right, I lied. the PPC version up there is for R3 and is old,
because I've just not had enough time lately to fire up the BeBox and
compile on it.
