README.win32 - Customise and build Sys::Syslog with Win32 EventLog support
This package includes support for the Win32 Event log. This requires
building a message file and then compiling it and linking it into the
final .DLL produced by MakeMaker. The default message text file used
by Sys::Syslog is PerlLog.mc, located in the win32/ subdirectory.
If the message file is updated then you need to go in the win32/
subdirectory and run the "compile.pl" command to update the relevant
files. Note that Sys::Syslog::Win32 is built by this process.
The following files are in the win32 directory:
PerlLog.mc -- Message file, change this if you change anything.
compile.pl -- Compile the message file and produce Win32.pm and
PerlLog.RES. Requires that mc.exe and rc.exe are
in the path.
PerlLog.RES -- Precompiled resource file, used when building the DLL
Win32.pm -- Generated Win32 module for working with the resource file
When building win32/PerlLog.RES will be linked into the final XS file,
and win32/Win32.pm will be copied to lib/Sys/Syslog/Win32.pm, which will
then be installed by MakeMaker as per normal.
