MacJPerl 5.2.0r4 J1
MacJPerl 5 is a version of Perl for the Macintosh which can use Japanese characters and has a Japanese user interface. MacJPerl is based on a combination of Matthias Neeracher's MacPerl and the jperl patches by Yasushi Saito and Hirofumi Watanabe. Chuck Houpt and Michiko Nozu merged the code and localized MacJPerl.
Changes since MacJPerl 5.15r4:
Features:MacJPerl is based on the source code for MacPerl 5.2.0r4 and jperl5.004_04-980303.pat and has all the features of both.
The following perl features correctly handle Japanese:
For a complete description of the Japanese features, see the README.jp, README.j and jperl.pod (in the pod folder).
In addition to the features inherited from perl, jperl and MacPerl, MacJPerl also provides:
System Requirements:MacJPerl 5 requires KanjiTalk System 7 or higher or any system with the Japanese Language Kit.
Installation:To install, run the self extracting archive.
Online Help:MacJPerl 5 comes with a considerable amount of HTML and pod based online help. For this help to work, make sure you have:
English Interface:MacJPerl comes with an optional English interface. To enable the interface remove the parenthesis from the file "(MacJPerl English)". When the "MacJPerl English" file is placed in the same folder as MacJPerl, English menus and dialogs will be used after MacJPerl restarts.
Known Problems:Under JLK, MacJPerl crashes when quiting after it has launched another application via AppleEvents (for example, opening a document from the editor menu). This seems to be a general problem that affects all Japanese-registered applications under JLK.
FAQ:How do I use Jcode?
To use Kazumasa Utashiro's jcode, "no I18N::Japanese;" should be inserted at the beginning of jcode.pl. Scripts that use jcode should wrap calls to jcode subroutines with no I18N::Japanese; and use I18N::Japanese; statements if needed.
