ExtUtils::MM_Win95 - method to customize MakeMaker for Win9X SYNOPSIS
You should not be using this module directly. DESCRIPTION
This is a subclass of ExtUtils::MM_Win32 containing changes necessary to get MakeMaker playing nice with and other Win9Xisms. Overridden methods Most of these make up for limitations in the Win9x/nmake command shell. Mostly its lack of &&. xs_c The && problem. xs_cpp The && problem xs_o The && problem. max_exec_len Win98 chokes on things like Encode if we set the max length to nmake's max of 2K. So we go for a more conservative value of 1K. os_flavor Win95 and Win98 and WinME are collectively Win9x and Win32 AUTHOR

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. 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 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. 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 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 dir1dir2 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. perl v5.16.2 2012-10-11 ExtUtils::MM_Win32(3pm)
