README.cygwin - Perl for Cygwin  


This document will help you configure, make, test and install Perl on Cygwin. This document also describes features of Cygwin that will affect how Perl behaves at runtime.

NOTE: There are pre-built Perl packages available for Cygwin and a version of Perl is provided in the normal Cygwin install. If you do not need to customize the configuration, consider using one of those packages.  



Cygwin = GNU+Cygnus+Windows (Don't leave UNIX without it)

The Cygwin tools are ports of the popular GNU development tools for Win32 platforms. They run thanks to the Cygwin library which provides the UNIX system calls and environment these programs expect. More information about this project can be found at:


A recent net or commercial release of Cygwin is required.

At the time this document was last updated, Cygwin 1.5.24 was current.  

Cygwin Configuration

While building Perl some changes may be necessary to your Cygwin setup so that Perl builds cleanly. These changes are not required for normal Perl usage.

NOTE: The binaries that are built will run on all Win32 versions. They do not depend on your host system (Win9x/WinME, WinNT/Win2K) or your Cygwin configuration (ntea, ntsec, binary/text mounts). The only dependencies come from hard-coded pathnames like /usr/local. However, your host system and Cygwin configuration will affect Perl's runtime behavior (see TEST).

PATH Set the PATH environment variable so that Configure finds the Cygwin versions of programs. Any Windows directories should be removed or moved to the end of your PATH.
nroff If you do not have nroff (which is part of the groff package), Configure will not prompt you to install man pages.
Permissions On WinNT with either the ntea or ntsec CYGWIN settings, directory and file permissions may not be set correctly. Since the build process creates directories and files, to be safe you may want to run a chmod -R +w * on the entire Perl source tree. Also, it is a well known WinNT feature that files created by a login that is a member of the Administrators group will be owned by the Administrators group. Depending on your umask, you may find that you can not write to files that you just created (because you are no longer the owner). When using the ntsec CYGWIN setting, this is not an issue because it corrects the ownership to what you would expect on a UNIX system.


The default options gathered by Configure with the assistance of hints/cygwin.sh will build a Perl that supports dynamic loading (which requires a shared libperl.dll).

This will run Configure and keep a record:

./Configure 2>&1 | tee log.configure

If you are willing to accept all the defaults run Configure with -de. However, several useful customizations are available.  

Stripping Perl Binaries on Cygwin

It is possible to strip the EXEs and DLLs created by the build process. The resulting binaries will be significantly smaller. If you want the binaries to be stripped, you can either add a -s option when Configure prompts you,

Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? [none] -s Any special flags to pass to g++ to create a dynamically loaded library? [none] -s Any special flags to pass to gcc to use dynamic linking? [none] -s

or you can edit hints/cygwin.sh and uncomment the relevant variables near the end of the file.  

Optional Libraries for Perl on Cygwin

Several Perl functions and modules depend on the existence of some optional libraries. Configure will find them if they are installed in one of the directories listed as being used for library searches. Pre-built packages for most of these are available from the Cygwin installer.
-lcrypt The crypt package distributed with Cygwin is a Linux compatible 56-bit DES crypt port by Corinna Vinschen. Alternatively, the crypt libraries in GNU libc have been ported to Cygwin. The DES based Ultra Fast Crypt port was done by Alexey Truhan: ftp://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/pc/gnuwin32/cygwin/porters/Okhapkin_Sergey/cw32crypt-dist-0.tgz NOTE: There are various export restrictions on DES implementations, see the glibc README for more details. The MD5 port was done by Andy Piper: ftp://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/pc/gnuwin32/cygwin/porters/Okhapkin_Sergey/libcrypt.tgz
-lgdbm_compat (use GDBM_File) GDBM is available for Cygwin. NOTE: The GDBM library only works on NTFS partitions.
-ldb (use DB_File) BerkeleyDB is available for Cygwin. NOTE: The BerkeleyDB library only completely works on NTFS partitions and db-4.3 is flawed.
cygserver (use IPC::SysV) A port of SysV IPC is available for Cygwin. NOTE: This has not been extensively tested. In particular, d_semctl_semun is undefined because it fails a Configure test and on Win9x the shm*() functions seem to hang. It also creates a compile time dependency because perl.h includes <sys/ipc.h> and <sys/sem.h> (which will be required in the future when compiling CPAN modules). CURRENTLY NOT SUPPORTED!
-lutil Included with the standard Cygwin netrelease is the inetutils package which includes libutil.a.

Configure-time Options for Perl on Cygwin

The INSTALL document describes several Configure-time options. Some of these will work with Cygwin, others are not yet possible. Also, some of these are experimental. You can either select an option when Configure prompts you or you can define (undefine) symbols on the command line.
-Uusedl Undefining this symbol forces Perl to be compiled statically.
-Uusemymalloc By default Perl uses the malloc() included with the Perl source. If you want to force Perl to build with the system malloc() undefine this symbol.
-Uuseperlio Undefining this symbol disables the PerlIO abstraction. PerlIO is now the default; it is not recommended to disable PerlIO.
-Dusemultiplicity Multiplicity is required when embedding Perl in a C program and using more than one interpreter instance. This works with the Cygwin port.
-Duse64bitint By default Perl uses 32 bit integers. If you want to use larger 64 bit integers, define this symbol.
-Duselongdouble gcc supports long doubles (12 bytes). However, several additional long double math functions are necessary to use them within Perl ({atan2, cos, exp, floor, fmod, frexp, isnan, log, modf, pow, sin, sqrt}l, strtold). These are not yet available with Cygwin.
-Dusethreads POSIX threads are implemented in Cygwin, define this symbol if you want a threaded perl.
-Duselargefiles Cygwin uses 64-bit integers for internal size and position calculations, this will be correctly detected and defined by Configure.
-Dmksymlinks Use this to build perl outside of the source tree. This works with Cygwin. Details can be found in the INSTALL document. This is the recommended way to build perl from sources.

Suspicious Warnings on Cygwin

You may see some messages during Configure that seem suspicious.
Win9x and d_eofnblk Win9x does not correctly report EOF with a non-blocking read on a closed pipe. You will see the following messages: But it also returns -1 to signal EOF, so be careful! WARNING: you cant distinguish between EOF and no data! *** WHOA THERE!!! *** The recommended value for $d_eofnblk on this machine was "define"! Keep the recommended value? [y] At least for consistency with WinNT, you should keep the recommended value.
Compiler/Preprocessor defines The following error occurs because of the Cygwin #define of _LONG_DOUBLE: Guessing which symbols your C compiler and preprocessor define... try.c:<line#>: missing binary operator This failure does not seem to cause any problems. With older gcc versions, parse error is reported instead of missing binary operator.


Simply run make and wait:

make 2>&1 | tee log.make  


There are two steps to running the test suite:

make test 2>&1 | tee log.make-test cd t; ./perl harness 2>&1 | tee ../log.harness

The same tests are run both times, but more information is provided when running as ./perl harness.

Test results vary depending on your host system and your Cygwin configuration. If a test can pass in some Cygwin setup, it is always attempted and explainable test failures are documented. It is possible for Perl to pass all the tests, but it is more likely that some tests will fail for one of the reasons listed below.  

File Permissions on Cygwin

UNIX file permissions are based on sets of mode bits for {read,write,execute} for each {user,group,other}. By default Cygwin only tracks the Win32 read-only attribute represented as the UNIX file user write bit (files are always readable, files are executable if they have a .{com,bat,exe} extension or begin with #!, directories are always readable and executable). On WinNT with the ntea CYGWIN setting, the additional mode bits are stored as extended file attributes. On WinNT with the default ntsec CYGWIN setting, permissions use the standard WinNT security descriptors and access control lists. Without one of these options, these tests will fail (listing not updated yet):

Failed Test List of failed ------------------------------------ io/fs.t 5, 7, 9-10 lib/anydbm.t 2 lib/db-btree.t 20 lib/db-hash.t 16 lib/db-recno.t 18 lib/gdbm.t 2 lib/ndbm.t 2 lib/odbm.t 2 lib/sdbm.t 2 op/stat.t 9, 20 (.tmp not an executable extension)  

NDBM_File and ODBM_File do not work on FAT filesystems

Do not use NDBM_File or ODBM_File on FAT filesystem. They can be built on a FAT filesystem, but many tests will fail:

../ext/NDBM_File/ndbm.t 13 3328 71 59 83.10% 1-2 4 16-71 ../ext/ODBM_File/odbm.t 255 65280 ?? ?? % ?? ../lib/AnyDBM_File.t 2 512 12 2 16.67% 1 4 ../lib/Memoize/t/errors.t 0 139 11 5 45.45% 7-11 ../lib/Memoize/t/tie_ndbm.t 13 3328 4 4 100.00% 1-4 run/fresh_perl.t 97 1 1.03% 91

If you intend to run only on FAT (or if using AnyDBM_File on FAT), run Configure with the -Ui_ndbm and -Ui_dbm options to prevent NDBM_File and ODBM_File being built.

With NTFS (and no CYGWIN=nontsec), there should be no problems even if perl was built on FAT.  

fork() failures in io_* tests

A fork() failure may result in the following tests failing:

ext/IO/lib/IO/t/io_multihomed.t ext/IO/lib/IO/t/io_sock.t ext/IO/lib/IO/t/io_unix.t

See comment on fork in Miscellaneous below.  

Specific features of the Cygwin port


Script Portability on Cygwin

Cygwin does an outstanding job of providing UNIX-like semantics on top of Win32 systems. However, in addition to the items noted above, there are some differences that you should know about. This is a very brief guide to portability, more information can be found in the Cygwin documentation.
Pathnames Cygwin pathnames can be separated by forward (/) or backward (\\) slashes. They may also begin with drive letters (C:) or Universal Naming Codes (//UNC). DOS device names (aux, con, prn, com*, lpt?, nul) are invalid as base filenames. However, they can be used in extensions (e.g., hello.aux). Names may contain all printable characters except these: : * ? " < > | File names are case insensitive, but case preserving. A pathname that contains a backslash or drive letter is a Win32 pathname (and not subject to the translations applied to POSIX style pathnames). For conversion we have Cygwin::win_to_posix_path() and Cygwin::posix_to_win_path(). Pathnames may not contain Unicode characters. Cygwin still uses the ANSI API calls and no Unicode calls because of newlib deficiencies. There's an unofficial unicode patch for cygwin at http://www.okisoft.co.jp/esc/utf8-cygwin/
Text/Binary When a file is opened it is in either text or binary mode. In text mode a file is subject to CR/LF/Ctrl-Z translations. With Cygwin, the default mode for an open() is determined by the mode of the mount that underlies the file. See Cygwin::is_binmount(). Perl provides a binmode() function to set binary mode on files that otherwise would be treated as text. sysopen() with the O_TEXT flag sets text mode on files that otherwise would be treated as binary: sysopen(FOO, "bar", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TEXT) lseek(), tell() and sysseek() only work with files opened in binary mode. The text/binary issue is covered at length in the Cygwin documentation.
PerlIO PerlIO overrides the default Cygwin Text/Binary behaviour. A file will always be treated as binary, regardless of the mode of the mount it lives on, just like it is in UNIX. So CR/LF translation needs to be requested in either the open() call like this: open(FH, ">:crlf", "out.txt"); which will do conversion from LF to CR/LF on the output, or in the environment settings (add this to your .bashrc): export PERLIO=crlf which will pull in the crlf PerlIO layer which does LF -> CRLF conversion on every output generated by perl.
.exe The Cygwin stat(), lstat() and readlink() functions make the .exe extension transparent by looking for foo.exe when you ask for foo (unless a foo also exists). Cygwin does not require a .exe extension, but gcc adds it automatically when building a program. However, when accessing an executable as a normal file (e.g., cp in a makefile) the .exe is not transparent. The install included with Cygwin automatically appends a .exe when necessary.
Cygwin vs. Windows process ids Cygwin processes have their own pid, which is different from the underlying windows pid. Most posix compliant Proc functions expect the cygwin pid, but several Win32::Process functions expect the winpid. E.g. $$ is the cygwin pid of /usr/bin/perl, which is not the winpid. Use Cygwin::winpid_to_pid() and Cygwin::winpid_to_pid() to translate between them.
Cygwin vs. Windows errors Under Cygwin, $^E is the same as $!. When using Win32 API Functions, use Win32::GetLastError() to get the last Windows error.
chown() On WinNT chown() can change a file's user and group IDs. On Win9x chown() is a no-op, although this is appropriate since there is no security model.
Miscellaneous File locking using the F_GETLK command to fcntl() is a stub that returns ENOSYS. Win9x can not rename() an open file (although WinNT can). The Cygwin chroot() implementation has holes (it can not restrict file access by native Win32 programs). Inplace editing perl -i of files doesn't work without doing a backup of the file being edited perl -i.bak because of windowish restrictions, therefore Perl adds the suffix .bak automatically if you use perl -i without specifying a backup extension. Using fork() after loading multiple dlls may fail with an internal cygwin error like the following: C:\CYGWIN\BIN\PERL.EXE: *** couldnt allocate memory 0x10000(4128768) for C:\CYGWIN\LIB\PERL5\5.6.1\CYGWIN-MULTI\AUTO\SOCKET\SOCKET.DLL alignment, Win32 error 8 200 [main] perl 377147 sync_with_child: child -395691(0xB8) died before initialization with status code 0x1 1370 [main] perl 377147 sync_with_child: *** child state child loading dlls Use the rebase utility to resolve the conflicting dll addresses. The rebase package is included in the Cygwin netrelease. Use setup.exe from http://www.cygwin.com/setup.exe to install it and run rebaseall.

Prebuilt methods:

Returns the current working directory.
Translates a cygwin pid to the corresponding Windows pid (which may or may not be the same).
Translates a Windows pid to the corresponding cygwin pid (if any).
Translates a Windows path to the corresponding cygwin path respecting the current mount points. With a second non-null argument returns an absolute path. Double-byte characters will not be translated.
Translates a cygwin path to the corresponding cygwin path respecting the current mount points. With a second non-null argument returns an absolute path. Double-byte characters will not be translated.
Returns an array of [mnt_dir, mnt_fsname, mnt_type, mnt_opts]. perl -e for $i (Cygwin::mount_table) {print join(" ",@$i),"\n";} /bin c:\cygwin\bin system binmode,cygexec /usr/bin c:\cygwin\bin system binmode /usr/lib c:\cygwin\lib system binmode / c:\cygwin system binmode /cygdrive/c c: system binmode,noumount /cygdrive/d d: system binmode,noumount /cygdrive/e e: system binmode,noumount
Returns the mount type and flags for a specified mount point. A comma-separated string of mntent->mnt_type (always system or user), then the mntent->mnt_opts, where the first is always binmode or textmode. system|user,binmode|textmode,exec,cygexec,cygdrive,mixed, notexec,managed,nosuid,devfs,proc,noumount If the argument is /cygdrive, then just the volume mount settings, and the cygdrive mount prefix are returned. User mounts override system mounts. $ perl -e print Cygwin::mount_flags "/usr/bin" system,binmode,cygexec $ perl -e print Cygwin::mount_flags "/cygdrive" binmode,cygdrive,/cygdrive
Returns true if the given cygwin path is binary mounted, false if the path is mounted in textmode.


This will install Perl, including man pages.

make install 2>&1 | tee log.make-install

NOTE: If STDERR is redirected make install will not prompt you to install perl into /usr/bin.

You may need to be Administrator to run make install. If you are not, you must have write access to the directories in question.

Information on installing the Perl documentation in HTML format can be found in the INSTALL document.  


These are the files in the Perl release that contain references to Cygwin. These very brief notes attempt to explain the reason for all conditional code. Hopefully, keeping this up to date will allow the Cygwin port to be kept as clean as possible.

Support for swapping real and effective user and group IDs is incomplete. On WinNT Cygwin provides setuid(), seteuid(), setgid() and setegid(). However, additional Cygwin calls for manipulating WinNT access tokens and security contexts are required.
