Used for building a Makefile for a Perl
module. Takes a list of libraries and returns platform-appropriate
lines that can be included in the Makefile.
The input list
$potential_libs is in
the form -llib1 -llib2 -llib3. Additional
library paths may be included in the form
-L/another/path, which affects searches for all
subsequent libraries. If the Boolean
$verbose is specified,
verbose output messages are provided. Returns a list of four scalar
List of libraries that need to be linked with ld
when linking a Perl binary that includes a static extension
List of static or dynamic libraries that can or must be linked when
creating a shared library using ld
Colon-separated list of the directories in LDLOADLIBS
List of libraries that are needed but can be linked in dynamically
with the DynaLoader at runtime
The Win32 version (in the standard Perl distribution) is different
from the Unix-OS/2 version in several ways:
-l and -L are not required
on the library and path specifications.
Entries must be libraries, not plain object files.
If $potential_libs is
empty, the return value is also empty.
The specified libraries can include both static and import libraries.
LDLOADLIBS and EXTRALIBS are always identical; BSLOADLIBS and
LD_RUN_PATH are always empty.
