MirOS Manual: ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap(3p)


ExtUtils::MkbootsPerl(Programmers RefereExtUtils::Mkbootstrap(3p)

NAME

     ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap - make a bootstrap file for use by
     DynaLoader

SYNOPSIS

     "Mkbootstrap"

DESCRIPTION

     Mkbootstrap typically gets called from an extension
     Makefile.

     There is no "*.bs" file supplied with the extension.
     Instead, there may be a *_BS file which has code for the
     special cases, like posix for berkeley db on the NeXT.

     This file will get parsed, and produce a maybe empty
     @DynaLoader::dl_resolve_using array for the current archi-
     tecture. That will be extended by $BSLOADLIBS, which was
     computed by ExtUtils::Liblist::ext(). If this array still is
     empty, we do nothing, else we write a .bs file with an
     @DynaLoader::dl_resolve_using array.

     The *_BS file can put some code into the generated "*.bs"
     file by placing it in $bscode. This is a handy 'escape'
     mechanism that may prove useful in complex situations.

     If @DynaLoader::dl_resolve_using contains "-L*" or "-l*"
     entries then Mkbootstrap will automatically add a
     dl_findfile() call to the generated "*.bs" file.
