Andy Dougherty [Thu, 13 Aug 2009 20:45:26 +0000]
Install arch-dependent files into $archlib.

After the great ext/ renaming, installperl stopped properly parsing the
new directory names, and hence did not properly deduce which files are
architecture-dependent.  This was compounded by Configure's failure to
detect ext/IO-Compress as an architecture-dependent module.  These two
patches fix both of those errors.

5 years agoOn Windows normalize $^X using GetLongPathName()
Jan Dubois [Tue, 11 Aug 2009 23:30:32 +0000]
On Windows normalize $^X using GetLongPathName()

If perl.exe is called with a short pathname, then GetModuleFileName()
will return this short name, and $^X will be set to it.  This in turn
is used to initialize @INC to privlib, sitelib and vendorlib locations
relative to $^X, so they too will end up with the mangled short names.

Perl will also automatically add versioned Perl directories in the
same tree if their names start with the same major and minor Perl
version numbers.  This heuristic can be broken when the pathname
components are using short pathnames.  Therefore $^X and @INC should
all be normalized to use the long pathname format.

Module::Build automatically sets configure_requires to its
current $VERSION, which causes problems if $VERSION is a dev
release not on CPAN.  To stabilize 5.10.1, this patch bumps
Module::Build 0.34_02 (currently in 5.10.1-RC1) to 0.340201.
No other code changes are included.  A matching version will
be released to CPAN.

5 years agoWIFEXITED() cygwin regression
Reini Urban [Tue, 4 Aug 2009 11:12:24 +0000]
WIFEXITED() cygwin regression

t/run/exit.t:58:    eval { POSIX::WIFEXITED() };
fails on the new cygwin-1.7 with
     5 [main] perl 3500 fork: child -1 - died waiting for longjmp
before initialization, retry 0, exit code 0xC0000005, errno 11
...
until I kill perl, because you must use an argument for WIFEXITED.
It didn't fail before, so I assume it's a cygwin regression, but it
must be fixed in the perl testsuite,
since an empty argument cries for trouble.
Use 0 or 1 as argument, ${^CHILD_ERROR_NATIVE} preferred.
