1. Download

Chilkat MAC OS X Perl Downloads

The download contains the following files:


2. Decompress and Extract to any Directory

The gzip step may be skipped if the download was automatically uncompressed resulting in a .tar file on your local filesystem.

gzip -d chilkat-9.5.0-perl-5.10-macosx.tar.gz
tar xvf chilkat-9.5.0-perl-5.10-macosx.tar

3. Verify your Perl Version

Make sure the version of Perl matches the version you downloaded (5.8, 5.10, 5.12, or 5.14).
Run the following command to verify the Perl version.

perl -version

4. Build

In the newly-created directory and type:

perl Makefile.PL

5. Install

While still in the same directory, type:

make install


sudo make install

Make sure you have the appropriate permissions to install the module in your Perl 5 library directory.
Often, you'll need to be root.

5. Test

Run the Perl script to verify the Chilkat module is ready for use:


The script creates a few of the Chilkat objects and prints the version of each:

use chilkat();

$zip = new chilkat::CkZip();
print $zip->version() . "\r\n";

$imap = new chilkat::CkImap();
print $imap->version() . "\r\n";

$ftp = new chilkat::CkFtp2();
print $ftp->version() . "\r\n";

$mailman = new chilkat::CkMailMan();
print $mailman->version() . "\r\n";

$ssh = new chilkat::CkSsh();
print $ssh->version() . "\r\n";

$sftp = new chilkat::CkSFtp();
print $sftp->version() . "\r\n";

$rsa = new chilkat::CkRsa();
print $rsa->version() . "\r\n";

$http = new chilkat::CkHttp();
print $http->version() . "\r\n";

$crypt = new chilkat::CkCrypt2();
print $crypt->version() . "\r\n";

$xml = new chilkat::CkXml();
print $xml->version() . "\r\n";

$socket = new chilkat::CkSocket();
print $socket->version() . "\r\n";

$tar = new chilkat::CkTar();
print $tar->version() . "\r\n";
