Subject cvs commit: modperl Makefile.PL INSTALL.win32
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2003 15:57:54 GMT
randyk      2003/07/02 08:57:54

  Modified:    .        Makefile.PL INSTALL.win32
  For Win32, use a default of APACHE_SRC/modules to install, if this directory exists and if INSTALL_DLL is
  not provided. Update the INSTALL.win32 documentation accordingly,
  and also add some discussion of the limitations of mod_perl 1
  on Win32.
