what the force of many cannot
Perl's Makefile specifies msvcrt.dll, does that mean it is targeted to VC 6?
Checking via Dependency Walker, perl.exe that I built with VS.NET 2002 is using MSVCR70.DLL
If Perl links against MSVCRT.LIB...
Searching under my Microsoft Visual Studio .NET directory structure...
...the only msvcr(t)xx.lib I can find is "MSVCRT.LIB"; which is under "Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\lib"
I would suppose there are no msvcr70/71.lib files, only the msvcrt.lib file and the dlls.
Also, the .NET 1.1 SDK on my system does not contain any msvcrt.lib files, just the msvcr71.dll.
My mistake on the post I made. msvcr70/71.lib is msvcrt.lib, each one specific to the version of VC++ used.
(is this correct or am I confused?)
