NAME

Alien::Libxml2 - Install the C libxml2 library on your system

VERSION

version 0.17

SYNOPSIS

In your Makefile.PL:

 use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
 use Alien::Base::Wrapper ();

 WriteMakefile(
   Alien::Base::Wrapper->new('Alien::Libxml2')->mm_args2(
     # MakeMaker args
     NAME => 'My::XS',
     ...
   ),
 );

In your Build.PL:

 use Module::Build;
 use Alien::Base::Wrapper qw( Alien::Libxml2 !export );

 my $builder = Module::Build->new(
   ...
   configure_requires => {
     'Alien::Libxml2' => '0',
     ...
   },
   Alien::Base::Wrapper->mb_args,
   ...
 );

 $build->create_build_script;

In your FFI::Platypus script or module:

 use FFI::Platypus;
 use Alien::Libxml2;

 my $ffi = FFI::Platypus->new(
   lib => [ Alien::Libxml2->dynamic_libs ],
 );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides libxml2 for other modules to use.

CAVEATS

There was an older existing Alien::LibXML, but it uses the older Alien::Build::ModuleBuild and the author prefers this version which is based on the more robust alienfile system.

libxml2 has some optional prereqs, including zlib and iconv. For a share install you will want to make sure that these are installed prior to installing Alien::Libxml2 if you want to make use of features relying on them.

For a system install, you want to make sure the development packages for libxml2, zlib and iconv are installed if libxml2 has been configured to use them, otherwise XML::LibXML will not install as expected. If the tests for this module fail with a missing iconv.h or zlib.h, then this is likely the reason.
