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, 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
       specify_shell
           Set SHELL to $ENV{COMSPEC} only if make is type 'gmake'.

       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.
