!!!! This package is seriously outdated !!!!
Note (2011-03-26 andk): This package once implemented sort of a
poor man's git in the times when perl sources were kept in a Perforce
repository. Since the perl repo itself switched to git in 2008 this
package is outdated and hardly of use for anybody. It will probably be
removed from CPAN soon.
About this distro
This collection of scripts and modules provides access to the APC
(Archive of Perl Changes).
You need to mirror parts of the APC repository to your local disk.
This is described in the buildaperl manpage.
patchaperlup a low level script that only builds
new perl sources from old perl
sources by applying numerically
buildaperl a wrapper around patchaperlup that
is able to compile and install a new
perl into its own cache area.
binsearchaperl a wrapper around buildaperl that is
able to run already built perls from the
cache area as well as build new perls via
buildaperl and compare their
functionality. If there is a different
behaviour between two perls, the script
is able to determine the exact patch
number that caused the change.
perlpatch2svn *** DEPRECATED ***
parse a stream of patches from the
APC and feed them into a Subversion
repository. Pedantically reconstruct
as much as possible from the
Perforce repository, binary files
that are missing in the APC are
restored from a dump.
apc2svn *** DEPRECATED ***
a wrapper around perlpatch2svn which
has a concept how a future
subversion repository might look
like. It is able to import the whole
APC into an empty or prepopulated
repository. Incremental updates from
APC into this repository supported.
**Use with caution**, the repository
layout itself is still subject to
Perl::Repository::APC provides methods to get at the
important metadata of the
APC--branches, perl versions and
Perl::Repository::APC2SVN *** DEPRECATED ***
a collection of utility functions
for the scripts that deal with
importing the APC into a Subversion
Perl::Repository::APC::BAP Rules how to translate arguments
5.6.0@5666, 5.7.3@, @17000, etc. as
short names for patched perl
versions. Only used by buildaperl.
