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.

       find_tests
           The Win9x shell does not expand globs and I'll play it
           safe and assume other Windows variants don't either.

           So we do it for them.

       init_DIRFILESEP
           Using \ for Windows.

       init_others
           Override some of the Unix specific commands with
           portable ExtUtils::Command ones.

           Also provide defaults for LD and AR in case the %Con-
           fig 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 (o)
           Add MM_Win32_VERSION.

       platform_constants (o)
       special_targets (o)
           Add .USESHELL target for dmake.

       static_lib (o)
           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 (o)
           Complicated stuff for Win32 that I don't understand.
           :(

       clean
           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 (o)
           This target is stubbed out.  Not sure why.

       pasthru (o)
           All we send is -nologo to nmake to prevent it from
           printing its damned banner.

       oneliner (o)
           These are based on what command.com does on Win98.
           They may be wrong for other Windows shells, I don't
           know.

       max_exec_len
           nmake 1.50 limits command length to 2048 characters.

       os_flavor
           Windows is Win32.
