[PATCH 5.6.0] Win32 performance-enhancement
Message ID:
Here's a patch that implements source-code level delayloading of both 
shell32.dll for win32_argv2utf8() and of the WinSock libraries in the Perl 
core (IO.dll still has to link explicitly against them, but IO::Blah is a 
resource hog, anyway). It also adds the new Perl56.dll base and new stack 
size settings for GCC/Mingw.


-- BKS

P.S. If WinSock 2 is sufficiently standard, it might be worth changing the 
LoadLibrary from "wsock32.dll" to "ws2_32.dll" so as to avoid loading the 
extra compatibility libraries.
