+meta-perl
+=========
+This layer provides commonly-used perl related recipes such as perl libraries
+in the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network.
+
+Contents and Help
+-----------------
+
+In this section the contents of the layer is listed, along with a short
+help for each package.
+
+ -- libdbi-perl --
+ The DBI is a database access module for the Perl programming language.
+ It defines a set of methods, variables, and conventions that provide
+ a consistent database interface, independent of the actual database
+ being used.

+ -- libdbd-sqlite-perl --
+ DBD::SQLite is a Perl DBI driver for SQLite, that includes the entire
+ thing in the distribution. So in order to get a fast transaction capable
+ RDBMS working for your perl project you simply have to install this
+ module, and nothing else.
+
+ usage: there is a test case to show you how it works
+
+ 1) vim local.conf:
+ ...
+ IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " libdbd-sqlite-perl"
+ PERL_DBM_TEST = "1"
+ ...
+ 2) build core-image-sato and boot the target
+
+ 3) run "sqlite-perl-test.pl" on target. This script includes five
+ operations create/insert/update/delete/select to do with a table.
+
+ More information can be found in the recipe's git log.
+
+Dependencies

+
+Adding the meta-perl layer to your build
+---------------------------------------
+
+In order to use this layer, you need to make the build system aware of
+it.
+
+Assuming the meta-perl layer exists at the top-level of your
+yocto build tree, you can add it to the build system by adding the
+location of the meta-perl layer to bblayers.conf, along with any
+other layers needed. e.g.:
+
+ BBLAYERS ?= " \
+ /path/to/oe-core/meta \
+ /path/to/layer/meta-perl \
+
