ExtUtils::FindFunctions - Find functions in external libraries
use ExtUtils::FindFunctions; my @check = qw(pcap_findalldevs pcap_open_dead pcap_setnonblock pcap_lib_version); my @funcs = have_functions(libs => '-lpcap', funcs => \@check, return_as => 'array');
This module provides the
have_functions() function which can be used to check if given functions are provided by an external library. Its aim is to be used as an embedded library by Makefile.PL which needs such facilities. Use the install-extutils-findfunctions command to embed it in your distribution.
The module exports by default the
Load the specified libraries and search for the given functions names. The results are returned as an array or as an hash depending on the
libs- specify the libraries to load; this argument will be given to
funcs- a reference to the list of functions to search
return_as- specify the type of the result, either as an
arrayor as a
hash. As an array, only the functions found in the libraries are returned. As a hash, the keys are the function names and their value indicates if the function is present or not.
