SUBROUTINES

       The following functions are not considered to be part of the public interface.  They are
       documented here for the benefit of future maintainers of this module.

   "standard_typemap_locations()"
       ·   Purpose

           Provide a list of filepaths where typemap files may be found.  The filepaths --
           relative paths to files (not just directory paths) -- appear in this list in lowest-
           to-highest priority.

           The highest priority is to look in the current directory.

             'typemap'

           The second and third highest priorities are to look in the parent of the current
           directory and a directory called lib/ExtUtils underneath the parent directory.

             '../typemap',
             '../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',

           The fourth through ninth highest priorities are to look in the corresponding
           grandparent, great-grandparent and great-great-grandparent directories.

             '../../typemap',
             '../../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',
             '../../../typemap',
             '../../../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',
             '../../../../typemap',
             '../../../../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',

           The tenth and subsequent priorities are to look in directories named ExtUtils which
           are subdirectories of directories found in @INC -- provided a file named typemap
           actually exists in such a directory.  Example:

             '/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.1/ExtUtils/typemap',

           However, these filepaths appear in the list returned by "standard_typemap_locations()"
           in reverse order, i.e., lowest-to-highest.

             '/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.1/ExtUtils/typemap',
             '../../../../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',
             '../../../../typemap',
             '../../../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',
             '../../../typemap',
             '../../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',
             '../../typemap',
             '../lib/ExtUtils/typemap',

             'typemap'
