Subject Re: Embperl on Mac OS X ?
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2007 11:52:50 GMT
thank you, this is what I was looking for.  I rechecked their pages and 
it's just like remembered: 
perl58/apache2/mod_perl2/postgres8/dbi/dbdpg/imagemagick everything 
seems to be there... They offer both source AND binary packages with 
Debian tools - excelent. Thanks for the reminder. I found also MacPorts 
but I'm not sure I understand what they really do...

So it's now only Embperl that is missing but if Gerald doesnt have Mac 
around it's going to take quite some time to have it ported. :-(

I fortunately don't have to use Cisco VPN so I have Gentoo/Debian under 
VMWare/WinXP running (almost) fine but the whole point of MacOSX is not 
running VM and having both decent GUI and reasonable server SW at the 
same time - especially when I'm out of the office ( Well, actually it's 
this new MacBook Pro I want and I'm searching for good reasons to buy 
one ;-) )

if I get a Mac and send you ssh access would you be willing and have 
time looking into porting Embperl to MacOSX?
