Official Mirror:
This module checks whether a particular dynamic library is available for FFI to use. It is modeled heavily on the Devel::CheckLib manpage, but will find dynamic libraries even when development packages are not installed. It also provides a FFI::CheckLib#find_lib function that will return the full path to the found dynamic library, which can be feed directly into the FFI::Platypus manpage or the FFI::Raw manpage. Although intended mainly for FFI modules via the FFI::Platypus manpage and similar, this module does not actually use any FFI to do its detection and probing. This modules does not have any non-core dependencies on Perls 5.8-5.18. On Perl 5.20 and newer it has a configure, build and test dependency on the Module::Build manpage.
