Hello Sorry if this is already fixed in the manwhile. But it would be great if Berkeley DB was included in Strawberry Perl, so that DB_File and MLDBM can be used. Cheers ;) Alberto

Currently, there's no good package to bundle. The only installer I've managed to find would bloat the distribution out by around 50 meg (or something equally horrible). Adam K 2009/1/6 Alberto Simões via RT <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>: Show quoted text

Based on what I figured out here: http://win32.perl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Install_DB_File_on_Strawberry_PerlI think we just need some include files and a library file and those are pretty small. I think all we need is a Perl::Dist::Asset::* class to grab that installer and raid it for the necessary files. It's an MSI so there must be some sort of MSI extraction tool that could do it. -- David

If you can find a way to do that, and can produce me a zip file with all the needed files, and where they need to go, I'll add it. Adam K 2009/1/6 David Golden via RT <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>: Show quoted text

Hi, if you are still interested in DB_File under strawberry perl you can try this: 1) unzip enclosed libdb-4.7.25-bin_20090812.zip into your c:\strawberry 2) run: cpan DB_File (on my 5.10.0.6 build is ok and all tests pass) It is db-4.7.25 - just static library (*.a), no DLLs. Compiled by me (I should probably rebuild it again; but the enclosed version seems to be ready to use enough). Any feedback welcome - post it here, please. -- kmx

Just a note: BTW: Berkley DB support is crucial for installing BioPerl module that is mentioned by Curtis on his maybe-in-Oct09-release list: http://csjewell.dreamwidth.org/1079.html So, you should consider including Berkley DB dev-libraries directly into strawberry release (I guess that Oracle license for Berkley DB allows that). As usual I am ready to help with this. -- kmx

Hi, I have prepared a clean build of db-4.7.25 (from "clean" sources; with "clean" mingw). Build environment: - mingw compiler (from latest strawberry 5.10.0.6) - msys environment (msysCORE-1.0.11) - build options: db-4.7.25/build_windows$ ../dist/configure --enable-mingw The enclosed libdb-4.7.25-bin_20090817.zip contains: - static library (*.a) + necessary headers - I have added also Oracle license + URL to source codes required in this license (both in "licenses" subdir) So libdb-4.7.25-bin_20090817.zip is more or less ready for integrating into strawberry release. Of course if you decide so. -- kmx

After r8907, DB_File worls, so MLDBM works. However, BerkeleyDB does NOT build, I've reported it to PMQS as ticket 49474. I won't take the library out, but just so you know.

I have posted a patch to BerkeleyDB that solves it (see RT49474) - module now compiles OK, but still some tests failing. -- kmx

Another question: Providing that Berkeley DB library is used by more modules would not it be better to include a dynamic library instead of static one? - using "alternative-DLL-name" trick: libdb-4.7_.dll instead of standard one libdb-4.7.dll Static way means: 1,6MB - libdb-4.7.a Dynamic way means: 0,8MB - libdb-4.7.dll.a 1,3MB - libdb-4.7.dll -- kmx

In this case, it's only a pair of modules that use the library directly - DB_File for Berkeley DB version 1 level calls and BerkeleyDB for version 2-4 level calls. I'm not so worried about it. If it were more, like the graphics libraries, then I'd tell you to worry.

I have solved this RT - http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=49474 - concerning building BerkeleyDB module under strawberry with new Berkeley DB library support. I have to rebuild the libdb.a with a little patch to one configure macro, the result is here: http://svn.ali.as/cpan/users/kmx/strawberry_packs/libdb-4.8.24-bin_20091019.zip Unfortunately too late for October2009 release - sorry. -- kmx
Resolving since October release happened.

[New bug needs created for anything we need to happen in January, sorry. The main implementation is there, and that's why this bug is resolved.]
Okay. Resolving is really happening.
