Re^5: RFC: Setting up a minGW compiling envronment for Perl 5.10 (updated)by BrowserUk (Pope)

It was after our discussion about ld linking directly against .dlls thatI went and browsed a few pages that google threw up, and I remember reading something about the export-all-symbols flag. It said something about it being enabled by default but disabled under certain conditions.
When I saw your post and managed to locate a reference to the flag, to check the spelling, but not the page a read about the disabling of the default or the conditions, something to do with .def files. I don't have/use MinGW to try it out.
I'll do another google and try to locate the discussion I saw before.
Update: I found this page which discusses the stuff about that switch. I'm not sure if it is the same page I read before, but it rings bells. I'm also not able to determine in the abstract if it will have any affect on your example problem?
