ExtUtils::MM_Win95 - method to customize MakeMaker for Win9X



  You should not be using this module directly.


This is a subclass of ExtUtils::MM_Win32 containing changes necessary to get MakeMaker playing nice with 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
