VCP Developer System Installation Instructions ============================================== These instructions are for developers only, not for end users. End users should use one of the pre-built distributions like "vcp.exe" or "vcp-rh8", etc in order to get supported, stable builds. Before installing VCP, you must install the XML Parsing library "Expat", available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/expat/ Installing that allows XML::Parser to install, which allows XML::ValidWriter to install, which allows VCP to install. You will also need a p4d >= 99.2 if you want to use the p4 I/O features, since vcp uses the filelog -m option. VCP is all Perl code, and uses a number of other Perl modules. Installing these is a bit of a pain, but CPAN or PPM can do it for you. See Makefile.PL for what you need. Note that there are a few "developer only" modules like BFD and Text::Table that you may want to install manually if you want to use some of the developer-only filters and destinations.
|#3||4503||Barrie Slaymaker||- Remove references to CPAN, update README and INSTALL|
Detect p4d <= 99.2 and skip tests.
Fix a use strict problem.
Both reported by Nick Ing-Simmons.
Lots of changes to get vcp to install better, now up to 0.066.
Many thanks to Matthew Attaway for testing & suggestions.
