./devel/p5-FFI-CheckLib, Check that a library is available for FFI

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.18, Package name: p5-FFI-CheckLib-0.18, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This module checks whether a particular dynamic library is available
for FFI to use. It is modeled heavily on Devel::CheckLib, but will
find dynamic libraries even when development packages are not
installed. It also provides a find_lib function that will return
the full path to the found dynamic library, which can be feed
directly into FFI::Platypus or FFI::Raw.

Log message:
p5-FFI-CheckLib: update to 0.18.

0.18      2017-10-25 10:00:47 -0400
  - Production version identical to 0.17_02

0.17_02   2017-10-14 01:03:04 -0400
  - Fix Windows testing regression introduced in 0.17_01

0.17_01   2017-10-13 15:58:30 -0400
  - Filter out broken and recursive symlinks
  - Better handle symlinked .so files on platforms that support that.

    Previously, we preferred the longer .so names (ie, libfoo.so.1.2.3)
    over the shorter .so names (libfoo.so) since the latter is usually a
    symlink, and the former may have useful "version" information in the
    filename.  That is a problem when a system is using symlinks to indicate
    a preference, (for example, if there are both libfoo.so.1.2.3,
    libfoo.so.1.2.4 and libfoo.so is a symlink to one of those).

    Now we still endevour to return the long .so name, but use the short
    name to see which one is preferred by the operating system, or user.

    In the absense of any symlinks to disambiguate two libraries with the
    same name, we prefer the one with a newer version number.   That is
    libfoo.so.2.3.4 would be preferred over libfoo.so.1.2.3

  - Slightly more consistent diagnostic messages.
  - Added functions: which, where, has_symbols
    None are exported by default, but may be requested.
