NAME
       Module::Build::Platform::VMS - Builder class for VMS platforms

DESCRIPTION
       This module inherits from "Module::Build::Base" and alters a few minor details of its
       functionality.  Please see Module::Build for the general docs.

   Overridden Methods
       _set_defaults
	   Change $self->{build_script} to 'Build.com' so @Build works.

       cull_args
	   '@Build foo' on VMS will not preserve the case of 'foo'.  Rather than forcing people
	   to write '@Build "foo"' we'll dispatch case-insensitively.

       manpage_separator
	   Use '__' instead of '::'.

       prefixify
	   Prefixify taking into account VMS' filepath syntax.

       _quote_args
	   Command-line arguments (but not the command itself) must be quoted to ensure case
	   preservation.

       have_forkpipe
	   There is no native fork(), so some constructs depending on it are not available.

       _backticks
	   Override to ensure that we quote the arguments but not the command.

       find_command
	   Local an executable program

       _maybe_command (override)
	   Follows VMS naming conventions for executable files.  If the name passed in doesn't
	   exactly match an executable file, appends .Exe (or equivalent) to check for executable
	   image, and .Com to check for DCL procedure.	If this fails, checks directories in
	   DCL$PATH and finally Sys$System: for an executable file having the name specified,
	   with or without the .Exe-equivalent suffix.

       do_system
	   Override to ensure that we quote the arguments but not the command.

       oneliner
	   Override to ensure that we do not quote the command.

       _infer_xs_spec
	   Inherit the standard version but tweak the library file name to be something
	   Dynaloader can find.

       rscan_dir
	   Inherit the standard version but remove dots at end of name.  If the extended
	   character set is in effect, do not remove dots from filenames with Unix path
	   delimiters.

       dist_dir
	   Inherit the standard version but replace embedded dots with underscores because a dot
	   is the directory delimiter on VMS.

       man3page_name
	   Inherit the standard version but chop the extra manpage delimiter off the front if
	   there is one.  The VMS version of splitdir('[.foo]') returns '', 'foo'.

       expand_test_dir
	   Inherit the standard version but relativize the paths as the native glob() doesn't do
	   that for us.

       _detildefy
	   The home-grown glob() does not currently handle tildes, so provide limited support
	   here.  Expect only UNIX format file specifications for now.

       find_perl_interpreter
	   On VMS, $^X returns the fully qualified absolute path including version number.  It's
	   logically impossible to improve on it for getting the perl we're currently running,
	   and attempting to manipulate it is usually lossy.

       localize_file_path
	   Convert the file path to the local syntax

       localize_dir_path
	   Convert the directory path to the local syntax

       ACTION_clean
	   The home-grown glob() expands a bit too aggressively when given a bare name, so
	   default in a zero-length extension.
