Subversion perl bindings - where do they live?
Thu Jun 9 07:35:00 GMT 2005
I have perl, swig, subversion and subversion-dev installed via cygwin.
I am finding that I need to use some very simple subversion client
capabilities from inside of a perl script.
Looking around on google I see multiple references to subversion perl
bindings existing as part of the subversion main package, and one
mailing list post from some time ago saying they hoped to have the
perl bindings in subversion soon.
Looking some further I find that the Subversion documentation
includes a section named "using languages other than C++":
Which describes the SWIG bindings used by perl as being located "in
subversion/bindings/swig", and gives some python examples of how the
bindings should be used.
Unfortunately no such directory as "subversion/bindings/swig" appears
to exist on my system as far as I can tell. (I also am not quite sure
of how the python bindings would translate to perl (would "from svn
import fs" become "use SVN::fs"? or what?) but that's something of a
secondary concern at this point.)
So my questions are:
1. Where exactly on my system, or in what as-yet-uninstalled cygwin
package, would I find the subversion swig bindings, assuming Cygwin
installs them? (And are there any perl examples of using said
subversion swig bindings anywhere?)
2. If Cygwin does not install the Subversion perl bindings, then does
anyone know, what must I do to get them in place? Can I install them
independently of subversion itself? Do I need to reinstall the entire
subversion client from source? Do I need to uninstall cygwin's
subversion package before I install my own?
Thanks much, I appreciate it.
