perl 5.26.1-2ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


perl (5.26.1-2ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - Build-depend on libc6-dev (>= 2.26).
    - Restore the SIGUNUSED signal. LP: #1717367.
    - Changes can be dropped with the next perl ABI bump, or with a perl
      upstream fix to restore ABI compatibility with glibc-2.26.

perl (5.26.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Upload to unstable.

perl (5.26.1-1) experimental; urgency=medium

  [ Dominic Hargreaves ]
  * Mark perl-doc as Multi-Arch: foreign (Closes: #876062)
  * New upstream release

  [ Niko Tyni ]
  * Patch Pod::Perldoc::ToTerm to set LESS=-R with sensible-pager.
    This is a hopefully temporary fix while upstream is working on the
    bigger issue. (Closes: #870340)
  * Include sources of Configure in a separate tarball component called
    "regen-configure", and verify them by regenerating Configure on every
    build using 'makeconfig' from the 'dist' package and checking for
    any changes. Special thanks to H.Merijn Brand (upstream) for helping
    with this at the Perl 5 Hackathon in Amsterdam. (Closes: #762638)

  [ Dominic Hargreaves ]
  * Replace various test skips with an upstreamable patch
  * Upload to experimental

Binary packages built by this source

libperl-dev: Perl library: development files

 Files for developing applications which embed a Perl interpreter.

libperl5.26: shared Perl library

 This package contains the shared Perl library, used by applications
 which embed a Perl interpreter.
 It also contains the architecture-dependent parts of the standard
 library (and depends on perl-modules-5.26 which contains the
 architecture-independent parts).

perl: Larry Wall's Practical Extraction and Report Language

 Perl is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over
 20 years of development. Perl 5 runs on over 100 platforms from
 portables to mainframes. Perl is suitable for both rapid prototyping
 and large scale development projects.
 Perl 5 supports many programming styles, including procedural,
 functional, and object-oriented. In addition to this, it is supported
 by an ever-growing collection of reusable modules which accelerate
 development. Some of these modules include Web frameworks, database
 integration, networking protocols, and encryption. Perl provides
 interfaces to C and C++ for custom extension development.

perl-base: minimal Perl system

 Perl is a scripting language used in many system scripts and utilities.
 This package provides a Perl interpreter and the small subset of the
 standard run-time library required to perform basic tasks. For a full
 Perl installation, install "perl" (and its dependencies, "perl-modules-5.26"
 and "perl-doc").

perl-debug: debug-enabled Perl interpreter

 debugperl provides a debug-enabled version of Perl which can produce
 extensive information about the interpreter as it compiles and executes
 a program (see the -D switch in perlrun(1)).
 Note that this package is primarily of use in debugging *Perl* rather
 than perl programs, which may be traced/debugged using the standard
 perl binary using the -d switch (see perldebug(1)).
 In addition, this package also includes debugging information for the normal
 Perl interpreter.

perl-doc: Perl documentation

 Perl manual pages, POD documentation and the `perldoc' program. If you are
 writing Perl programs, you almost certainly need this.

perl-modules-5.26: Core Perl modules

 Architecture independent Perl modules. These modules are part of Perl and
 required if the `perl' package is installed.
 Note that this package only exists to save archive space and should be
 considered an internal implementation detail of the `perl' package.
 Other packages should not depend on `perl-modules-5.26' directly, they
 should use `perl' (which depends on `perl-modules-5.26') instead.
