DESCRIPTION

NOTE: This version of Alien::bz2 has been deprecated in favor of a re-write which is hosted here:

This distribution installs the bzip2 libraries and makes them available Alien::Base style. It will use the system version of libbz2 if found. You can force it to build libbz2 from source by setting the environment variable ALIEN_BZ2 to share when you install this module.

Unless you have specific need for this, you probably are more interested in one of these:

CAVEATS

Does not seem to work with 64bit Strawberry Perl on Windows. This is because we borrow the sources from GnuWin32, which appear to be hand crafted to build 32bit binaries.
