Large parts of Imager are written in XS, which is mostly C with some Perl macros. On Win32, XS gets compiled into .dll files. On other platforms, it gets compiled into whatever format dynamically loadable libraries have. You can find out the filename extension for a platform by inspecting the output of perl -V:so on that platform:


Q:\>perl -V:so so='dll';


$ perl -V:so so='so';

    Sorry, I was being too particular in my use of .dll to mean XS code. I would prefer to not have to compile XS code across multiple OSs. A pure Perl solution would be preferable; the reasons are in Re^2: Merge multiple BMP images into ICO files. But as I said in that node, I may be wasting my time looking for/writing a pure Perl solution and will go either with Imager or ImageMagick.

    Thanks for your help. - J
