Last change on this file since 42bb57d was 42bb57d, checked in by Ken Moffat <ken@…>, 5 years ago

Biblatex-biber and related perl module changes -
· dependency changes, remove Date::Simple, add new deps
· for biber only record time with tests, it is perl where tests are expected, all pass
· for modules ('distributions') use double colons instead of dashes in displayed names
· but use dashes in URLs to get directly to the distribution instead of getting list of matches
· also update Text::BibTeX and List::AllUtils to current versions.

171 It is possible to install all missing dependencies automatically.
172 But from <application>perl-5.22.0</application> onwards,
173 <xref linkend="perl-module-build"/> is no longer part of the core perl
174 distribution. And for <xref linkend="perl-data-uniqid"/> we have to
175 patch it to skip over a test which always fails - that failing test may
176 break the automatic install. To automatically install the remaining perl
177 dependencies you can install those two modules first using <xref
178 linkend="perl-auto-install"/>. then run <command>perl ./Build.PL</command>
179 and when it prompts you, become the root user and run
180 <command>./Build installdeps</command>
