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

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

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

	   Use '__' instead of '::'.

	   Prefixify taking into account VMS' filepath syntax.

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

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

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

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

	   Override to ensure that we do not quote the command.

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

	   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

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

	   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'.

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

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

	   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.

	   Convert the file path to the local syntax

	   Convert the directory path to the local syntax

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