NAME
       ExtUtils::Miniperl - write the C code for miniperlmain.c and perlmain.c

SYNOPSIS
           use ExtUtils::Miniperl;
           writemain(@directories);
           # or
           writemain($fh, @directories);
           # or
           writemain(\$filename, @directories);

DESCRIPTION
       "writemain()" takes an argument list of zero or more directories
       containing archive libraries that relate to perl modules and should be
       linked into a new perl binary. It writes a corresponding miniperlmain.c
       or perlmain.c file that is a plain C file containing all the bootstrap
       code to make the modules associated with the libraries available from
       within perl.  If the first argument to "writemain()" is a reference to
       a scalar it is used as the filename to open for output. Any other
       reference is used as the filehandle to write to. Otherwise output
       defaults to "STDOUT".

       The typical usage is from within perl's own Makefile (to build
       perlmain.c) or from regen/miniperlmain.pl (to build miniperlmain.c).
       So under normal circumstances you won't have to deal with this module
       directly.
