NAME
       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 implementa-
       tion 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_others
           Override some of the Unix specific commands with portable ExtUtils::Command ones.

           Also provide defaults for LD and AR in case the %Config values aren't set.

           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
       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.

       oneliner
           These are based on what command.com 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 dir
               command
               another_command
               cd ..

           NOTE: This only works with simple relative directories.  Throw it an absolute dir or something with .. in
           it and things will go wrong.

       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.
