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
     provided there. This package overrides the implementation of
     these methods, not the 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 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.

     init_DIRFILESEP
         Using \ for Windows.

     init_others
         Override some of the Unix specific commands with port-
         able ExtUtils::Command ones.

         Also provide defaults for LD and AR in case the %Config
         values aren't set.

         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 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.

     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.

     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 dir
             command
             another_command
             cd ..

         NOTE This cd can only go one level down.  So far this
         sufficient for what MakeMaker needs.

     max_exec_len
         nmake 1.50 limits command length to 2048 characters.

     os_flavor
         Windows is Win32.
