Re: Does back-perl require libperl.so?

A revision of my previous confused post:

I gather that back-perl uses libperl... (subject to linker flags and so on
for choice of exact binary). Does this have to be a shared object file or
could it be static?

That depends entirely on your platform. If you build back-perl as a dynamic module, you will most likely need libperl to be a shared library. For some platforms (like AIX) it makes no difference either way.
