builat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Good day monastry mind
Today I install sl4a on my phone and write my first android code.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Android; my $droid = Android -> new(); my $Out = 'try data for ever looop'; $droid -> makeToast ('event invfo');# done $droid -> vibrate(); # done $droid -> dialogCreateAlert ('d.title','d.data'); $droid -> dialogSetPositiveButtonText ('da'); $droid -> dialogShow(); $Out = $droid -> dialogGetResponse() -> {'result'}; if ($Out -> {'which'} eq 'positive'){ $droid -> makeToast ('have positivee response');} $droid -> dialogCreateSpinnerProgress('test title','data'); $droid -> dialogShow(); sleep 3; $droid -> dialogDismiss();
Anyway it simple hello world in android api.
So my qustion is: how do I install perl modules on android and what the best manual to read about perl on android.

    Greetings,

    Funny. I rooted my Android years ago. Put many different OS's on it. But never thought about putting Perl on it -- I've been pretty busy building a BSD kernel for it. Anyway. While I've seen Mobile related Modules. I haven't heard of a specific version of Perl designed for installation on Mobile devices. A good reference might be: XDA forums.

    --Chris

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use Perl::Always or die;
    my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
    print $perl_version;

    Hi builat

    Perl for android is not actively under development. Its kind of dead.
    See: Here
    I was once (a year back) mad at perl + android but SLA + Perl is not coming to real thing. May be google just want to promote Java + Native dev. So I fell, it is not viable to invest in android perl unless it is actively under devlopment and we can put apps in app store.



    Thanks & Regards,
