NAME

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

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



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



DESCRIPTION

See ExtUtils::MM_Unix for a documentation of the methods provided there. This package overrides the implementation of these methods, not the semantics.

    Overridden methods

<B>dlsymsB>
replace_manpage_separator Changes the path separator with .
<B>maybe_commandB> Since Windows has nothing as simple as an executable bit, we check the file extension.

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

<B>init_DIRFILESEPB> Using \ for Windows, except for gmake where it is /.
init_tools Override some of the slower, portable commands with Windows specific ones.
init_others Override the default link and compile tools.

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
constants Add MAXLINELENGTH for dmake before all the constants are output.
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 code to 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 by gcc. Otherwise, take out all *.pdb files.
init_linker
perl_script Checks for the perl program under several common perl extensions.
quote_dep
xs_o This target is stubbed out. Not sure why.
pasthru All we send is -nologo to nmake to prevent it from printing its damned banner.
arch_check (override) Normalize all arguments for consistency of comparison.
oneliner These are based on what command.com does on Win98. They may be wrong for other Windows shells, I don’t know.
cd dmake can handle Unix style cd’ing but nmake (at least 1.5) cannot. It wants:



    cd dir1\dir2
    command
    another_command
    cd ..\..



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 all code destined for the perl5xx.dll must be compiled with the PERLDLL symbol defined.
