Perl in VxWorks

Abstract [en]

This master thesis has been to investigate the possibility to run Perl on the operating system VxWorks, in other words port Perl to VxWorks. TietoEnator uses Perl in their test environment for base stations and since they use VxWorks in those there is a need for TietoEnator to be able to run Perl on VxWorks. VxWorks is ANSI C compatible which is a critical factor since Perl is written in C. In addition, a file system needed to be provided in order to get Perl fully functional on VxWorks. Because Perl is built to be portable to every platform the porting to VxWorks is doable. However the porting of Perl requires a vast amount of knowledge both of the operating system and of the Perl core, which could be reduced by better documentation of the Perl configuration process.
