NAME
       ExtUtils::Miniperl, writemain - write the C code for perl-
       main.c

SYNOPSIS
       "use ExtUtils::Miniperl;"

       "writemain(@directories);"

DESCRIPTION
       This whole module is written when perl itself is built
       from a script called minimod.PL. In case you want to patch
       it, please patch minimod.PL in the perl distribution
       instead.

       writemain() takes an argument list of directories contain-
       ing archive libraries that relate to perl modules and
       should be linked into a new perl binary. It writes to STD-
       OUT a corresponding perlmain.c file that is a plain C file
       containing all the bootstrap code to make the modules
       associated with the libraries available from within perl.

       The typical usage is from within a Makefile generated by
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker. So under normal circumstances you
       won't have to deal with this module directly.
