    Dear all

    What is an SDK support for Perl?

    I found something like this in my Leopard Terminal Perl manual:

    SDK support

    First, export the path to the SDK into the build environment:

    export SDK=/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.3.9.sdk

    Use an SDK by exporting some additions to Perl's 'ccflags' and
    '..flags' config variables:

    ./Configure -Accflags="-nostdinc -B$SDK/usr/include/gcc \
    -B$SDK/usr/lib/gcc -isystem$SDK/usr/include \
    -F$SDK/System/Library/Frameworks" \
    -Aldflags="-Wl,-syslibroot,$SDK" \
    1. What is the SDK?
    2. What compiler do they mean? Can it be gcc?
    3. There is no Configure file on my Mac. How to solve this?

    Thank you in advance

    That sounds like instructions for compiling your own copy of perl to me... for which you would need the perl source code.
