Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::MSYS

NAME

Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::MSYS − MSYS plugin for Alien::Build

VERSION

version 2.37

SYNOPSIS

use alienfile;
plugin 'Build::MSYS';

DESCRIPTION

This plugin sets up the MSYS environment for your build on Windows. It does not do anything on non-windows platforms. MSYS provides the essential tools for building software that is normally expected in a UNIX or POSIX environment. This like "sh", "awk" and "make". To provide MSYS, this plugin uses Alien::MSYS.

PROPERTIES

msys_version
The version of Alien::MSYS required if it is deemed necessary. If Alien::MSYS isn’t needed (if running under Unix, or MSYS2, for example) this will do nothing.

HELPERS

make
%{make}

On windows the default "%{make}" helper is replace with the make that comes with Alien::MSYS. This is almost certainly what you want, as most unix style make projects will not build with "nmake" or "dmake" typically used by Perl on Windows.
