NAME

ExtUtils::MM_Win95 - method to customize MakeMaker for Win9X  

SYNOPSIS

  You should not be using this module directly.

 

DESCRIPTION

This is a subclass of ExtUtils::MM_Win32 containing changes necessary to get MakeMaker playing nice with command.com and other Win9Xisms.  

Overriden methods

Most of these make up for limitations in the Win9x/nmake command shell. Mostly its lack of &&.
xs_c
The && problem.
xs_cpp
The && problem
xs_o
The && problem.
max_exec_len
Win98 chokes on things like Encode if we set the max length to nmake's max of 2K. So we go for a more conservative value of 1K.
os_flavor
Win95 and Win98 and WinME are collectively Win9x and Win32
