[PATCH] Haiku Port
Message ID:

attached is a patch introducing support for Haiku, created against 
perl-current @34615. Most changes are pretty straight-forward. Noteworthy 
are the following two:

* ext/Haiku/...: Adds a module Haiku which provides access to a few Haiku 
specific API functions, which I found very helpful while debugging the port.

* ext/POSIX/POSIX.xs: I re-introduced the use of the WMUNGE() macro, which 
was (accidentally?) removed after 5.10.0. The macro is still a hack. As my 
added comment explains the use of the OS's W*() macros in this context is 
simply not correct and should probably better be fixed.

CU, Ingo
