NAME ^ - build extensions

SYNOPSIS ^ make [-make_opts] dep directory [target] [--static|--dynamic] +ext2 !ext1

E.g. nmake -nologo perldll.def ..\ext nmake -nologo perldll.def ..\ext clean dmake perldll.def ..\ext dmake perldll.def ..\ext clean

Will skip building extensions which are marked with an '!' char. Mostly because they still not ported to specified platform.

If any extensions are listed with a '+' char then only those extensions will be built, but only if they arent countermanded by an '!ext' and are appropriate to the type of building being done.

If '--static' specified, only static extensions will be built. If '--dynamic' specified, only dynamic extensions will be built.

--create-perllibst-h creates perllibst.h file for inclusion from perllib.c --list-static-libs: prints libraries for static linking and exits
