ExtUtils::MakeMakPerlbProgrammers RExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes(3p)


NAME
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes - Version agnostic bytes.pm

SYNOPSIS
         use just like bytes.pm

DESCRIPTION
       bytes.pm was introduced with 5.6.  This means any code
       which has 'use bytes' in it won't even compile on 5.5.X.
       Since bytes is a lexical pragma and must be used at com-
       pile time we can't simply wrap it in a BEGIN { eval 'use
       bytes' } block.

       ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes is just a very thin wrapper
       around bytes which works just like it when bytes.pm exists
       and everywhere else it does nothing.
