Note that due to a problem with indexing on CPAN, the Glib module was
"missing in action" on CPAN for about a week or so. This was
documented in RT ticket #75948. The indexing of the Glib module has
been fixed and verified via search.cpan.org/metacpan.org and via the
CPAN module itself. The latest stable release of Glib is 1.242.
This release works with all stable releases of glib-2.x.
In order to build Glib from source, you must have glib-2.x and its
development headers and utilities installed, as well as the
pkg-config utility. In addition, the following Perl modules are
needed at build time (but not at runtime):
Glib provides Perl access to the GLib and GObject libraries. GLib is
a portability and utility library; GObject provides a generic type
system with inheritance and a powerful signal system. Together these
libraries are used as the foundation for many of the libraries that
make up the Gnome environment, and are used in many unrelated projects.
