NAME

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 command.com and other Win9Xisms.

Overriden methods

Most of these make up for limitations in the Win9x command shell. Namely the lack of && and that a chdir is global, so you have to chdir back at the end.

dist_test

&& and chdir problem.

subdir_x

&& and chdir problem.

Also, dmake has an odd way of making a command series silent.

xs_c

The && problem.

xs_cpp

The && problem

xs_o

The && problem.

clean_subdirs_target

&& and chdir problem.

realclean_subdirs_target

&& and chdir 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
