windows, shortcuts and 'use lib'
Message ID:

I just noticed that on Windows - at least in the activestate build - perl doesn't handle

use lib 'shortcut.lnk';

This is very unfortunate for us who want to take our unix environments and make them work
seamlessly on NT (and need the capability of symbolic links and are willing to fake them
via shortcuts).

Anyways, would people be interested in a patch to 'use lib'? I'd rather not write another
directive, because of the ubiquitousness of 'use lib' and the fact that other modules
out of my control use it extensively...
