Perl::Dist::WiX::Mixin::Libraries - Library installation routines
This document describes Perl::Dist::WiX::Mixin::Libraries version 1.500002.
This module provides the routines that Perl::Dist::WiX uses in order to install the C toolchain and library files.
# This module is not to be used independently.
# It provides methods to be called on a Perl::Dist::WiX object.
The library_directory method returns the correct directory on the strawberryperl.com server for libraries, given the bits() and gcc_version() values.
The install_gcc_toolchain method installs the corrent gcc toolchain into the distribution, and is typically installed during "C toolchain" build phase.
It provides the approproate arguments to install_binary and then validates that the binary was installed correctly.
Returns true or throws an exception on error.
The install_dmake method installs the dmake make tool into the distribution, and is typically installed during "C toolchain" build phase.
The install_pexports method installs the MinGW pexports package into the distribution.
This is needed by some libraries to let the Perl interfaces build against them correctly.
The install_mingw_make method installs the MinGW build of the GNU make build tool.
While GNU make is not used by Perl itself, some C libraries can't be built using the normal dmake tool and explicitly need GNU make. So we install it as mingw-make and certain Alien:: modules will use it by that name.
See Perl::Dist::WiX::Diagnostics for a list of exceptions that this module can throw.
