If you invoke the parser with something like

PERLLIB=path gapi.pl mylib.sources target_dir

and mylib.sources contains:

dir_containing_sources Namespace native_library_name.dll

The parser will automatically try to apply a Namespace.metadata file
located in the directory from which the command is invoked.
