ExtUtils::MM_Any(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide	    ExtUtils::MM_Any(3pm)

NAME
       ExtUtils::MM_Any - Platform agnostic MM methods

SYNOPSIS
	 FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY!

	 package ExtUtils::MM_SomeOS;

	 # Temporarily, you have to subclass both.  Put MM_Any first.
	 require ExtUtils::MM_Any;
	 require ExtUtils::MM_Unix;
	 @ISA = qw(ExtUtils::MM_Any ExtUtils::Unix);

DESCRIPTION
       FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY!

       ExtUtils::MM_Any is a superclass for the ExtUtils::MM_* set of modules.	It contains meth-
       ods which are either inherently cross-platform or are written in a cross-platform manner.

       Subclass off of ExtUtils::MM_Any and ExtUtils::MM_Unix.	This is a temporary solution.

       THIS MAY BE TEMPORARY!

Inherently Cross-Platform Methods
       These are methods which are by their nature cross-platform and should always be
       cross-platform.

       File::Spec wrappers  DEPRECATED

       The following methods are deprecated wrappers around File::Spec functions.  They exist
       from before File::Spec did and in fact are from which File::Spec sprang.

       They are all deprecated.  Please use File::Spec directly.

       canonpath
       catdir
       catfile
       curdir
       file_name_is_absolute
       path
       rootdir
       updir

Thought To Be Cross-Platform Methods
       These are methods which are thought to be cross-platform by virtue of having been written
       in a way to avoid incompatibilities.

       test_via_harness
	     my $command = $mm->test_via_harness($perl, $tests);

	   Returns a $command line which runs the given set of $tests with Test::Harness and the
	   given $perl.

	   Used on the t/*.t files.

       test_via_script
	     my $command = $mm->test_via_script($perl, $script);

	   Returns a $command line which just runs a single test without Test::Harness.  No
	   checks are done on the results, they're just printed.

	   Used for test.pl, since they don't always follow Test::Harness formatting.
