ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap - make a bootstrap file for use by DynaLoader
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. perl v5.8.8 2005-02-05 1
