NAME

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

DESCRIPTION

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

_set_defaults
Change $self->{build_script} to 'Build.com' so @Build works.
cull_args
[email protected] foo' on VMS will not preserve the case of 'foo'. Rather than forcing people to write [email protected] ``foo''' we'll dispatch case-insensitively.
manpage_separator
Use '__' instead of '::'.
prefixify
Prefixify taking into account VMS' filepath syntax.
_quote_args
Command-line arguments (but not the command itself) must be quoted to ensure case preservation.
have_forkpipe
There is no native fork(), so some constructs depending on it are not available.
_backticks
Override to ensure that we quote the arguments but not the command.
do_system
Override to ensure that we quote the arguments but not the command.
_infer_xs_spec
Inherit the standard version but tweak the library file name to be something Dynaloader can find.
rscan_dir
Inherit the standard version but remove dots at end of name. This may not be necessary if File::Find has been fixed or DECC$FILENAME_UNIX_REPORT is in effect.
dist_dir
Inherit the standard version but replace embedded dots with underscores because a dot is the directory delimiter on VMS.
man3page_name
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'.
expand_test_dir
Inherit the standard version but relativize the paths as the native glob() doesn't do that for us.
_detildefy
The home-grown glob() does not currently handle tildes, so provide limited support here. Expect only UNIX format file specifications for now.
find_perl_interpreter
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.
