       SVN - Access to the Embperl SVN development tree

SVN Access

       The Embperl development tree lives on the machine  This tree contains the
       latest Embperl bug fixes and developments that have not made it to CPAN yet.  Welcome to
       the bleeding edge.

       Just like SVN access to the Apache development tree, the Embperl code pulled from SVN is
       not guaranteed to do anything, especially not compile or work.  But - that's exactly why
       we are using SVN - so that everyone has access the latest version and can help ensure
       that Embperl does compile and work on all platforms, with the various versions and
       configurations of Perl and Apache, once it is really supposed to.  Patches are always
       welcome. Simply testing the latest snapshots is just as (if not even more) helpful.

   Anonymous Subversion
       To access the Subversion repositories anonymously, you will need a Subversion client.  You
       can also browse the ASF projects that are using Subversion with a Webbroswer via

       Embperl can be found at the URL

       To check it out use

         svn checkout embperl

       To keep it up to date go into the embperl directory and run

         svn up

       For more help on using Subversion, consult the Subversion website
       ( or Subversion book (  The
       web site provides a list of clients and useful links

       As mentioned above you can browser the svn repository directly with a webbrowser at

       A more confortable way is to use

       A snapshot is rolled off the Embperl tree every 6 hours and placed here:

   Embperl 1.x
       There is no further development in the Embperl 1.x branch, but case it will become
       necessary you can access the Embperl 1.x code via the branch ep1, so when you checkout
       just run

           svn checkout

       There is a SVN mailing list for Embperl (This is SVN - not a list for asking questions
       about Embperl!!!). This list receives all changes which are committed to the SVN. If you
       want to know what's going on which Embperl, you can subscribe by sending a mail to with subscribe in the body.

   Building from SVN sources
       Before you can build Embperl from sources that are checked out from the SVN, you need to
       generate some glue code. This is done by the module ExtUtils::XSBuilder, so you need to
       install it first from CPAN. When it's installed run:

           perl xsbuilder/
           perl xsbuilder/
           perl Makefile.PL
           make test
           make install
