ExtUtils::MM_Any - Platform agnostic MM methods
FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY!
ExtUtils::MM_Any is a superclass for the ExtUtils::MM_* set of modules. It contains methods which are either inherently cross-platform or are written in a cross-platform manner.
Subclass off of ExtUtils::MM_Any and ExtUtils::MM_Unix. This is a temporary solution.
THIS MAY BE TEMPORARY!
Inherently Cross-Platform Methods
These are methods which are by their nature cross-platform and should always be cross-platform.
File::Spec wrappers DEPRECATED
The following methods are deprecated wrappers around File::Spec functions. They exist from before File::Spec did and in fact are from which File::Spec sprang.
They are all deprecated. Please use File::Spec directly.
Thought To Be Cross-Platform Methods
These are methods which are thought to be cross-platform by virtue of having been written in a way to avoid incompatibilities.
- my $command = $mm->test_via_harness($perl, $tests);
Returns a $command line which runs the given set of $tests with Test::Harness and the given $perl.
Used on the t/*.t files.
- my $command = $mm->test_via_script($perl, $script);
Returns a $command line which just runs a single test without Test::Harness. No checks are done on the results, they're just printed.
Used for test.pl, since they don't always follow Test::Harness formatting.
