Perl Modules for Raspberry Pi
Version 0.74 - released 20 November 2018


If you are upgrading from HiPi version 0.51 or below, read the upgrade notes at Upgrading from HiPi 0.51 before continuing.

Using Debian Package

A HiPi debian package is available for Raspbian Stretch

Download libhipi-perl_0.74-1_armhf.deb then install and resolve dependencies.

sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg --install libhipi-perl_0.74-1_armhf.deb
sudo apt-get -y -f install

You don't have to run the seperate apt-get command to resolve dependencies if you use gdebi.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gdebi-core
sudo gdebi libhipi-perl_0.74-1_armhf.deb


You can install from CPAN in the normal way.

cpan -i HiPi

If you would like to install dependencies first from the Raspbian repository (recommended) rather than have cpan build and install them locally, the list is:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libmodule-build-perl \
                     libdevice-serialport-perl \
