Win32::API latest news
After taking the maintainership of Win32::API, I have been busy trying to build several useful environments to be able to test the module, including combinations of:
- Flavour: Vanilla, Strawberry, bleadperl
- Compiler: Gcc/MinGW, msvc6, msvc2003, borland?
- Make: nmake, dmake, GNU make
If we also consider that cygwin is entirely another story, this is definitely a great mess, at least for me: I'm not a Win32 development genius... :-)
The latest version distributed on CPAN, marked v0.45, should build and install (but not test) cleanly on at least VC6 and gcc/MinGW. The test suite is not yet ready to be enough "cross-platform" as we all want.
I'm now working on that, and on cygwin environment integration. I already applied some cygwin-related patches dated 2002 or so, but there are problems with msvc2003 Makefiles compatibility and
API_test.dll building in the test suite.
