    Does this help? ExtUtils::Depends

    No, not exactly. Actually, not even slightly. That requires that in order to make use of the module, that it be available at install/compile time. That pretty much belies the reasoning for having dynamic linking.

    What I'm pursuing is a cross-platform way of expressing these two operations:

    1. Is there an (unqualified) .dll/so/.other of this name accessible?
    2. If so, does it export these entrypoints?

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
