The following are exported by default.

=over 4

=item B<which_perl>

  my $perl = which_perl;

Returns a path to perl which is safe to use in a command line, no
matter where you chdir to.


sub which_perl {
    my $perl = $^X;
    $perl ||= 'perl';

    # VMS should have 'perl' aliased properly
    return $perl if $Is_VMS;

    $perl .= $Config{exe_ext} unless $perl =~ m/$Config{exe_ext}$/i;

    my $perlpath = File::Spec->rel2abs( $perl );
    unless( $Is_MacOS || -x $perlpath ) {
        # $^X was probably 'perl'

        # When building in the core, *don't* go off and find
        # another perl
        die "Can't find a perl to use (\$^X=$^X), (\$perlpath=$perlpath)" 
          if $ENV{PERL_CORE};

        foreach my $path (File::Spec->path) {
            $perlpath = File::Spec->catfile($path, $perl);
            last if -x $perlpath;

    return $perlpath;

=item B<perl_lib>


Sets up environment variables so perl can find its libraries.


my $old5lib = $ENV{PERL5LIB};
my $had5lib = exists $ENV{PERL5LIB};
sub perl_lib {
                               # perl-src/t/
    my $lib =  $ENV{PERL_CORE} ? qq{../lib}
                               # ExtUtils-MakeMaker/t/
                               : qq{../blib/lib};
    $lib = File::Spec->rel2abs($lib);
    my @libs = ($lib);
    push @libs, $ENV{PERL5LIB} if exists $ENV{PERL5LIB};
    $ENV{PERL5LIB} = join($Config{path_sep}, @libs);
    unshift @INC, $lib;

END { 
    if( $had5lib ) {
        $ENV{PERL5LIB} = $old5lib;
    else {
        delete $ENV{PERL5LIB};

=item B<makefile_name>

  my $makefile = makefile_name;

MakeMaker doesn't always generate 'Makefile'.  It returns what it
should generate.


sub makefile_name {
    return $Is_VMS ? 'Descrip.MMS' : 'Makefile';

=item B<makefile_backup>

  my $makefile_old = makefile_backup;

Returns the name MakeMaker will use for a backup of the current


sub makefile_backup {
    my $makefile = makefile_name;
    return $Is_VMS ? "$makefile".'_old' : "$makefile.old";

=item B<make>

  my $make = make;

Returns a good guess at the make to run.


sub make {
    my $make = $Config{make};
    $make = $ENV{MAKE} if exists $ENV{MAKE};

    return $make;

=item B<make_run>

  my $make_run = make_run;

Returns the make to run as with make() plus any necessary switches.


sub make_run {
    my $make = make;
    $make .= ' -nologo' if $make eq 'nmake';

    return $make;

=item B<make_macro>

    my $make_cmd = make_macro($make, $target, %macros);

Returns the command necessary to run $make on the given $target using
the given %macros.

  my $make_test_verbose = make_macro(make_run(), 'test', 
                                     TEST_VERBOSE => 1);

This is important because VMS's make utilities have a completely
different calling convention than Unix or Windows.

%macros is actually a list of tuples, so the order will be preserved.


sub make_macro {
    my($make, $target) = (shift, shift);

    my $is_mms = $make =~ /^MM(K|S)/i;

    my $cmd = $make;
    my $macros = '';
    while( my($key,$val) = splice(@_, 0, 2) ) {
        if( $is_mms ) {
            $macros .= qq{/macro="$key=$val"};
        else {
            $macros .= qq{ $key=$val};

    return $is_mms ? "$make$macros $target" : "$make $target $macros";

=item B<calibrate_mtime>

  my $mtime = calibrate_mtime;

When building on NFS, file modification times can often lose touch
with reality.  This returns the mtime of a file which has just been


sub calibrate_mtime {
    open(FILE, ">calibrate_mtime.tmp") || die $!;
    print FILE "foo";
    close FILE;
    my($mtime) = (stat('calibrate_mtime.tmp'))[9];
    unlink 'calibrate_mtime.tmp';
    return $mtime;

=item B<run>

  my $out = run($command);
  my @out = run($command);

Runs the given $command as an external program returning at least STDOUT
as $out.  If possible it will return STDOUT and STDERR combined as you
would expect to see on a screen.


sub run {
    my $cmd = shift;

    require ExtUtils::MM;

    # Unix can handle 2>&1 and OS/2 from 5.005_54 up.
    # This makes our failure diagnostics nicer to read.
    if( MM->os_flavor_is('Unix') or
        ($] > 5.00554 and MM->os_flavor_is('OS/2'))
      ) {
        return `$cmd 2>&1`;
    else {
        return `$cmd`;

=item B<setup_mm_test_root>

Creates a rooted logical to avoid the 8-level limit on older VMS systems.  
No action taken on non-VMS systems.


sub setup_mm_test_root {
    if( $Is_VMS ) {
        # On older systems we might exceed the 8-level directory depth limit
        # imposed by RMS.  We get around this with a rooted logical, but we
        # can't create logical names with attributes in Perl, so we do it
        # in a DCL subprocess and put it in the job table so the parent sees it.
        open( MMTMP, '>mmtesttmp.com' ) || 
          die "Error creating command file; $!";
        print MMTMP <<'COMMAND';
$ MM_TEST_ROOT = F$PARSE("SYS$DISK:[-]",,,,"NO_CONCEAL")-".][000000"-"]["-"].;"+".]"
        close MMTMP;

        system '@mmtesttmp.com';
        1 while unlink 'mmtesttmp.com';

=item have_compiler

  $have_compiler = have_compiler;

Returns true if there is a compiler available for XS builds.


sub have_compiler {
    my $have_compiler = 0;

    # ExtUtils::CBuilder prints its compilation lines to the screen.
    # Shut it up.
    require TieOut;
    local *STDOUT = *STDOUT;
    local *STDERR = *STDERR;

    tie *STDOUT, 'TieOut';
    tie *STDERR, 'TieOut';

    eval {
	require ExtUtils::CBuilder;
	my $cb = ExtUtils::CBuilder->new;

	$have_compiler = $cb->have_compiler;

    return $have_compiler;
