The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.


Alien::libgpiod - Find or Build libgpiod


In dist.ini, if using Dist::Zilla:

  [Prereqs / ConfigureRequires]
  Alien::libgpiod = v0.1
  header = use Alien::Base::Wrapper qw(Alien::libgpiod !export);
  WriteMakefile_arg = Alien::Base::Wrapper->mm_args


This package will find or build (note: building has not currently been tested) the libgpiod library, used for accessing GPIO character devices on Linux. This is a new API that deprecates the older sysfs GPIO interface since kernel 4.8.
