NAME

ExtUtils::MM_Win32 - methods to override UN*X behaviour in ExtUtils::MakeMaker 

SYNOPSIS

 use ExtUtils::MM_Win32; # Done internally by ExtUtils::MakeMaker if needed
 

DESCRIPTION

See ExtUtils::MM_Unix for a documentation of the methods providedthere. This package overrides the implementation of these methods, notthe semantics. 

Overridden methods

dlsyms
replace_manpage_separator
Changes the path separator with .
maybe_command
Since Windows has nothing as simple as an executable bit, we check thefile extension.

The PATHEXT env variable will be used to get a list of extensions thatmight indicate a command, otherwise .com, .exe, .bat and .cmd will beused by default.

init_DIRFILESEP
Using \ for Windows.
init_others
Override some of the Unix specific commands with portableExtUtils::Command ones.

Also provide defaults for LD and AR in case the %Config values aren'tset.

LDLOADLIBS's default is changed to $Config{libs}.

Adjustments are made for Borland's quirks needing -L to come first.

init_platform
Add MM_Win32_VERSION.
platform_constants
special_targets
Add .USESHELL target for dmake.
static_lib
Changes how to run the linker.

The rest is duplicate code from MM_Unix. Should move the linker codeto its own method.

dynamic_lib
Complicated stuff for Win32 that I don't understand. :(
extra_clean_files
Clean out some extra dll.{base,exp} files which might be generated bygcc. Otherwise, take out all *.pdb files.
init_linker
perl_script
Checks for the perl program under several common perl extensions.
xs_o
This target is stubbed out. Not sure why.
pasthru
All we send is -nologo to nmake to prevent it from printing its damnedbanner.
oneliner
These are based on what command.com does on Win98. They may be wrongfor other Windows shells, I don't know.
cd
dmake can handle Unix style cd'ing but nmake (at least 1.5) cannot. Itwants:

    cd dir    command    another_command    cd ..

NOTE: This only works with simple relative directories. Throw it an absolute dir or something with .. in it and things will go wrong.

max_exec_len
nmake 1.50 limits command length to 2048 characters.
os_flavor
Windows is Win32.
cflags
Defines the PERLDLL symbol if we are configured for static building since allcode destined for the perl5xx.dll must be compiled with the PERLDLL symboldefined.
