Alien::Build::Plugin::Probe - Probe Alien::Build plugins

version 2.73

look for libraries in known location:

use alienfile;
plugin 'Probe::CBuilder' => (
  cflags => '-I/opt/libfoo/include',
  libs   => '-L/opt/libfoo/lib -lfoo',
);

look for tools in the path:

use alienfile;
plugin 'Probe::CommandLine' => (
  command => 'gzip',
  args    => [ '--version' ],
  match   => qr/gzip/,
  version => qr/gzip ([0-9\.]+)/,
);

Use "vcpkg" for Visual C++ Perl:

use alienfile;
plugin 'Probe::Vcpkg' => 'libffi';

Probe plugins try to find existing libraries and tools already installed on the system. If found they can be used instead of downloading the source from the internet and building.

Use ExtUtils::CBuilder to probe for existing installed library.
Execute commands to probe for existing tools.
Use Win32::Vcpkg to probe for existing installed library.
