( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

What about creating a nice set of C wrapper functions for the OS dependant LoadLibrary/GetProcAddr/FreeLibrary calls? Makefile.PL / Build.PL could decide which one to use, or panic if the OS is unknown / not implemented.

BTW: Linux seems to use dladdr, dlclose, dlerror, dlopen, dlsym, dlvsym, the first four are POSIX.1-2001, the other two are GNU extensions, according to the man page. So, if you use the Win32 API for Windows as a special case, and simply try to use dlopen and friends on other platforms, you could get the job done for most Unix platforms. Other platforms should fail and complain loudly during make.
