Subject: Ext-lib: Graphics libs (libjpeg, linpng, libtiff, libfreetype)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
Hi, the idea of including graphics libraries into strawberry distribution is based on my attempts to install perl module Imager (it is a prerequisite of e.g. MojoMojo - Catalyst based Wiki engine). For getting Imager installed on strawberry you need to have some of these external libraries: libjpeg, linpng, libtiff, libfreetype. There are more ways how to handle this: 1) The easiest way to do it is to get these libraries from gnuwin32 binaries. - I have tested this approach and it works quite OK - the only problem is that gnuwin32 bild contains just dynamic libraries, therefore a bunch of additional DLLs is required - more DLLs = more potential problems (e.g. PATH issue) 2) We can build a static *.a files from original sources - again tested by me - works - this way means more effort in the future as we have to rebild the libs with each new release - but no additional DLL dependencies 3) We could include already compiled Imager module (either statically linked or with all necessary DLL in c:\strawberry\perl\site\lib\auto\Imager\) and do not include dev files (*.a/*.h). I would appreciate if we can somehow make module Imager working with strawberry. Could you give me a feedback which of the 3 above mentioned options you consider feasible? I am ready to help with building the libs. -- kmx

I think it's reasonable for the first attempt to just use the .dll files. We can improve it in a subsequent release if we does actually display DLL clash problems. Adam K 2009/8/17 kmx via RT <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>: Show quoted text

OK In that case it will be quite simple. This scenario works for me: ### libjpeg 1) download jpeg-6b-4-bin.zip and jpeg-6b-4-lib.zip from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/jpeg.htm 2) copy the following files into your strawberry: jpeg-6b-4-bin.zip/bin/jpeg62.dll => c:\strawberry\c\bin\jpeg62.dll jpeg-6b-4-lib.zip/include/* => c:\strawberry\c\include\ jpeg-6b-4-lib.zip/lib/libjpeg.dll.a => c:\strawberry\c\lib\libjpeg.a ### libgif 1) download giflib-4.1.4-1-bin.zip and giflib-4.1.4-1-lib.zip from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/giflib.htm 2) copy the following files into your strawberry: giflib-4.1.4-1-bin.zip/bin/giflib4.dll => c:\strawberry\c\bin\giflib4.dll giflib-4.1.4-1-lib.zip/include/gif_lib.h => c:\strawberry\c\include\gif_lib.h giflib-4.1.4-1-lib.zip/lib/libgif.dll.a => c:\strawberry\c\lib\libgif.a ### linpng 1) download libpng-1.2.37-bin.zip and libpng-1.2.37-lib.zip from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libpng.htm 2) copy the following files into your strawberry: libpng-1.2.37-bin.zip/bin/libpng12.dll => c:\strawberry\c\bin\libpng12.dll libpng-1.2.37-bin.zip/bin/libpng3.dll => c:\strawberry\c\bin\libpng3.dll libpng-1.2.37-lib.zip/include/* => c:\strawberry\c\include\ libpng-1.2.37-lib.zip/lib/libpng.dll.a => c:\strawberry\c\lib\libpng.a libpng-1.2.37-lib.zip/lib/libpng12.dll.a => c:\strawberry\c\lib\libpng12.a ### libtiff 1) download tiff-3.8.2-1-bin.zip and tiff-3.8.2-1-lib.zip from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tiff.htm 2) copy the following files into your strawberry: tiff-3.8.2-1-bin.zip/bin/libtiff3.dll => c:\strawberry\c\bin\libtiff3.dll tiff-3.8.2-1-lib.zip/include/* => c:\strawberry\c\include\ tiff-3.8.2-1-lib.zip/lib/libtiff.dll.a => c:\strawberry\c\lib\libtiff.a ### libfreetype 1) download freetype-2.3.5-1-bin.zip and freetype-2.3.5-1-lib.zip from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/freetype.htm 2) copy the following files into your strawberry: freetype-2.3.5-1-bin.zip/bin/freetype6.dll => c:\strawberry\c\bin\freetype6.dll freetype-2.3.5-1-lib.zip/include/* => c:\strawberry\c\include\ freetype-2.3.5-1-lib.zip/lib/libfreetype.dll.a => c:\strawberry\c\lib\libfreetype.a Then you can simply install Imager by running: cpan Imager (compiles OK, all tests PASS) NOTE 1: - the size of all copied files (*.dll/*.a/*.h) is about 3.7MB - there are 6 new DLLs (I put them into c:\strawberry\c\bin\ but I am wondering whether c:\strawberry\perl\bin\ would not be slightly better) NOTE 2: - not all libraries are available on gnuwin32 in the latest version - however I do not see this as a big problem especially comparing with effort needed to rebuild them all from sources NOTE 3: - 4 DLLs (freetype6.dll libpng12.dll libpng3.dll libtiff3.dll) have a dependency on zlib1.dll - therefore my idea of getting rid of zlib1.dll discussed here https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=48671 was wrong Is the description above enough or should I prepare something else to help you with adding these libraries into strawberry? -- kmx P.S. BTW it would be a good idea to give CSJewell co-maint to Perl-Dist-Strawberry (he will be notified about posts like this by e-mail)

Hi, please find enclosed packs with graphics libraries ready to be release with strawberry perl. All are based on gnuwin32 binaries as described above. To test whether these libraries work - simply run: cpan Imager -- kmx

I have done the following: 1) made little changes to freetype, png libs (added simplified freetype-config.bat, libpng12-config.bat, libpng-config.bat) 2) added libgd support (Bio::Perl requires GD perl module) - I have used gnuwin32 binaries All the latest versions are available at: http://svn.ali.as/cpan/users/kmx/strawberry_packs/ - libfreetype-2.3.5-1-bin_20090828.zip - libgd-2.0.33-1-bin_20090828.zip - libgif-4.1.4-1-bin_20090821.zip - libjpeg-6b-4-bin_20090821.zip - libpng-1.2.38-bin_20090828.zip - libtiff-3.8.2-1-bin_20090821.zip -- kmx

Added these 6 libraries (no documentation yet) in r8899 and r8900.
Resolving since October release happened.
