ExtUtils::MkbootsPerl(Programmers RefereExtUtils::Mkbootstrap(3p)


NAME
       ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap - make a bootstrap file for use by
       DynaLoader

SYNOPSIS
       "Mkbootstrap"

DESCRIPTION
       Mkbootstrap typically gets called from an extension Make-
       file.

       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_find-
       file() call to the generated "*.bs" file.
