16.22
2 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
3 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
4 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
5 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
6 - Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
7 - Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
8 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
9 - test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
10 [Greg Matheson]
11 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
12 [Slaven Rezic]
13 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
14 [Slaven Rezic]
15 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
16 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]

03c94fc2 19 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
20 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
21 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
22 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
23 for backwards compatibility.
24 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
25 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

276.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
28 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
29 take a more conservative approach.
30 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
31 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
32 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
33 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
34 nmake [rt 4285 4301]

366.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
37 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
38 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
39 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
40 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
41 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
42 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
43
446.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
45 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
46 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
47 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
48 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
49 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
50 Perls.
51 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
52 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
53 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
54 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
55 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
56 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
57 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
58 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
59 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
60 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
61 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
62 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
63 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
64 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
65 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
66 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
67 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
68 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
69 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
70 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
71 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
72 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
73 November and nobody noticed.
74 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
75 by the user.
76 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
77 * Documented UNINST=1

796.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
80 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
81 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
82 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
83 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
84 (Orton Yves)
85 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
86 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
87 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
88 ndbgperl.exe.
89 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

916.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
92 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
93 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
94 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
95 [Sreeji K Das]
96 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
97 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
98 bleadperl@20530)
99 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
100 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)
101

1026.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
103 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
104 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
105
1066.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
107 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
108 itself and the metafile documentation.
109 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
110 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
111 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
112 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
113 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
114 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

1166.13 Thu Jul 31 16:48:01 PDT 2003
117 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
118 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
119 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
120 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.
121

1226.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
123 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
124 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
125 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
126 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
127 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
128 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
129 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
130 to INST_*.
131 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
132 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
133 really bizarre way.
134
1356.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
136 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
137 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
138 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
139 * Noting where to find make in the README
140 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
141 on Windows.

142
1436.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
144 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
145 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
146 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
147 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
148 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
149 This appears to be a rather old bug.
150 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
151 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
152 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
153 of prepending a .. onto it.
154 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
155 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
156 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
157 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
158 repeating the list all over the code.
159 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
160 with DESTDIR set.
161 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
162 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
163 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
164 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
165 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
166 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
167 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
168 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
169 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
170 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
171 when it didn't.
172
1736.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
174 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
175 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
176 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
177 to using multiple -e's.
178 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
179 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
180 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
181 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
182 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
183 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
184 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
185 $(ECHO).
186 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'
e3aa3ecb 187

MS
1886.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
189 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
190 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
191 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
192 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
193 the basic.t test on Windows.
194

MS
1956.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
196 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
197 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
198 alter your manifest.
199 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
200 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
201 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
202 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
203 around 6.06_01.
204 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
205 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
206 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
207 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
208 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
209 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
210 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

2126.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
213 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
214 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
215 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
216 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
217 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
218 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
219 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
220 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
221 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
222 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
223 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
224 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
225 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
226 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
227 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
228 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
229 sometimes don't get installed.
230 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
231 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
232 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
233 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
234
2356.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
236 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
237 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
238 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
239 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
240 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
241 Fixed.
242 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
243 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
244 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
245 (Stas Bekman)
246 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
247 (Craig Berry)
248 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
249 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
250 miserably.
251 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
252
2536.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
254 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
255 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
256 Just on OS/2.
257
2586.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
259 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
260 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
261 to skip installing a file.
262 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
263 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
264 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
265 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
266 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
267 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
268 removed. No longer relevent.
269 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
270 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
271 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
272 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
273 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
274 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
275 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
276 properly before. (Craig Berry)
277 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
278 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
279 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
280 reading.
281 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
282 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
283 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
284 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
285 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
286
287# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
288# so much change between 6.05 and now.

MS
291 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
292 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
293 warning because of this.
294 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
295 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
296 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
297 Worked around.
298 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
299 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
300
3016.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
302 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
303 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
304 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
305 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
306 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
307 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
308 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
309 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
310 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
311 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
312 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
313 Missing since 5.6.1.
314 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
315 command line lengths.
316 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
317 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
318 eof() not honor tied handles.
319 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
320 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
321
3226.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
323 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
324 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
325 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
326 to think modules weren't installed.
327 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
328 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
329 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
330 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
331 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
332 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
333 warn_if_old_packlist().
334 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
335 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
336 in the first place.
337 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
338 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
339 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
340 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
341 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
342 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
343 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
344 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
345 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
346 expansion
347 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
348 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
349 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
350 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
351 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
352 MakeMaker.
353 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
354 - Added compile & POD test
355 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
356 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
357 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
358 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
359 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
360 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
361 [perl #21526]
362
3636.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
364 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
365 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
366 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
367 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
368 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
369 fixpath() work again.
370
3716.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
372 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
373 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
374 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
375 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
376 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
377 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
378 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
379 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
380 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
381 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
382 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
383 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
384 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
385 using that.
386 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
387 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
388 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
389 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
390 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
391 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
392 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
393 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
394 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
395 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
396 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
397 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
398 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
399 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
400 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
401 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files

417 of the clean target.
418 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
419 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
420 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
421 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.

423 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
424 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.

464 init_VERSION
465 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
466 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
467 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
468
469 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
470 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
471 Everything else was redundant.
472
473 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
474 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
475 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
476 into init_linker().
477 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
478 MM_VMS_VERSION.

485 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
486 unportable part of the realclean target.
487 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
488 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
489 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
490 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
491 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
492 is explicitly set to empty.
493 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
494 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
495 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
496 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
497 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
498 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
499 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
500 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
501 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
502 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
503 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
504 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
505 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
506 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
507 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean

513 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
514 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
515 commands.
516 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
517 be pointless.
518 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
519 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
520 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle

542 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
543 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
544 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
545 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
546 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod

849 [[ New Features ]]
850 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
851 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
852 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
853 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
854 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
855
856 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
857 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
858 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
859 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
860 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
861 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
862 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
863
864 [[ Doc Changes ]]
865 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
866 reflecting its odd behavior.
867 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
868 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
869 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
870
871 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
872 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
873 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
874 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
875 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
876 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
877 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
878 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
879 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
880 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
881
8825.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
883 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
884 chdir without breaking @INC.
885 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
886 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
887 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
888 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
889 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
890 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
891
892 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
893 change.
894 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
895 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
896 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
897 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
898 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
899 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
900 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
901 backporting
902 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
903 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
904 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
905 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
906 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
907 @MM::ISA does that itself.
908 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
909 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
910 explicitly required MM_Unix.
911 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
912 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
913 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
914 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
915 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
916 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
917 to EU::MM.
918 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
919
9205.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
921 - No longer requiring Test::More
922 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1

MS
924 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
925 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
926 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
927 No longer obsolete
928 - Little test fixes

9305.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
931 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
932 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
933 work on Win32/5.6.1.
934 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
935 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
936 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
937 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
938 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
939 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
940
9415.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
942 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

945 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
946 * Backported to 5.6.1
947 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
948 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
949 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
950 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
