2 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
3 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
4 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
5 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
6 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
7 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.

10 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
11 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
12 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
13 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
14 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
15 Perls.
16 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
17 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
18 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
19 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
20 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
21 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
22 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
23 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
24 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
25 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
26 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
27 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
28 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
29 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
30 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
31 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
32 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
33 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
34 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
35 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
36 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
37 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
38 November and nobody noticed.
39 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
40 by the user.
41 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
42 * Documented UNINST=1

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

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

676.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
68 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
69 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
70
716.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
72 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
73 itself and the metafile documentation.
74 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
75 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
76 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
77 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
78 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
79 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

82 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
83 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
84 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
85 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.

876.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
88 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
89 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
90 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
91 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
92 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
93 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
94 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
95 to INST_*.
96 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
97 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
98 really bizarre way.
99
1006.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
101 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
102 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
103 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
104 * Noting where to find make in the README
105 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
106 on Windows.

1086.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
109 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
110 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
111 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
112 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
113 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
114 This appears to be a rather old bug.
115 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
116 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
117 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
118 of prepending a .. onto it.
119 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
120 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
121 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
122 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
123 repeating the list all over the code.
124 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
125 with DESTDIR set.
126 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
127 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
128 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
129 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
130 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
131 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
132 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
133 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
134 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
135 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
136 when it didn't.
137
1386.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
139 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
140 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
141 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
142 to using multiple -e's.
143 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
144 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
145 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
146 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
147 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
148 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
149 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
150 $(ECHO).
151 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'
e3aa3ecb 152

MS
1536.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
154 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
155 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
156 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
157 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
158 the basic.t test on Windows.

MS
1606.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
161 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
162 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
163 alter your manifest.
164 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
165 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
166 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
167 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
168 around 6.06_01.
169 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
170 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
171 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
172 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
173 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
174 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
175 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

1776.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
178 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
179 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
180 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
181 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
182 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
183 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
184 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
185 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
186 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
187 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
188 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
189 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
190 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
191 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
192 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
193 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
194 sometimes don't get installed.
195 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
196 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
197 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
198 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
199
2006.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
201 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
202 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
203 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
204 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
205 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
206 Fixed.
207 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
208 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
209 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
210 (Stas Bekman)
211 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
212 (Craig Berry)
213 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
214 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
215 miserably.
216 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
217
2186.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
219 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
220 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
221 Just on OS/2.
222
2236.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
224 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
225 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
226 to skip installing a file.
227 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
228 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
229 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
230 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
231 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
232 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
233 removed. No longer relevent.
234 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
235 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
236 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
237 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
238 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
239 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
240 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
241 properly before. (Craig Berry)
242 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
243 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
244 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
245 reading.
246 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
247 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
248 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
249 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
250 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
251
252# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
253# so much change between 6.05 and now.

256 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
257 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
258 warning because of this.
259 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
260 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
261 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
262 Worked around.
263 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
264 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
265
2666.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
267 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
268 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
269 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
270 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
271 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
272 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
273 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
274 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
275 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
276 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
277 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
278 Missing since 5.6.1.
279 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
280 command line lengths.
281 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
282 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
283 eof() not honor tied handles.
284 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
285 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
286
2876.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
288 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
289 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
290 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
291 to think modules weren't installed.
292 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
293 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
294 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
295 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
296 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
297 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
298 warn_if_old_packlist().
299 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
300 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
301 in the first place.
302 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
303 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
304 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
305 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
306 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
307 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
308 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
309 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
310 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
311 expansion
312 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
313 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
314 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
315 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
316 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
317 MakeMaker.
318 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
319 - Added compile & POD test
320 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
321 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
322 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
323 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
324 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
325 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
326 [perl #21526]
327
3286.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
329 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
330 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
331 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
332 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
333 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
334 fixpath() work again.
335
3366.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
337 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
338 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
339 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
340 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
341 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
342 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
343 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
344 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
345 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
346 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
347 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
348 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
349 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
350 using that.
351 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
352 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
353 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
354 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
355 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
356 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
357 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
358 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
359 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
360 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
361 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
362 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
363 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
364 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
365 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
366 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
367 by default.
368 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
369 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
370 - Improved DISTNAME docs
371 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
372 * Documented dist()
373 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
374 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
375 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
376 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
377 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
378 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
379 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
380 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
381 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
382 of the clean target.
383 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
384 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
385 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
386 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
387 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
388 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
389 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
390 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
391 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
392 target.
393 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
394 they come first.
395 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
396 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
397 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
398 init_platform().
399 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
400 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
401 init_VERSION().
402 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
403 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
404
405 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
406 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from

408 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to

413 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
414 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
415 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
416 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
417 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()

429 init_VERSION
430 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
431 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
432 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.

435 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
436 Everything else was redundant.
437
438 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
439 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
440 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
441 into init_linker().
442 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
443 MM_VMS_VERSION.
444 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
445 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
446 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
447 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
448 overrides.
449 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
450 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
451 unportable part of the realclean target.
452 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
453 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
454 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
455 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
456 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
457 is explicitly set to empty.
458 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
459 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
460 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
461 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
462 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
463 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
464 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
465 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
466 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
467 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
468 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
469 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
470 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
471 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
472 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
473 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
474 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
475 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
476 dont_execute arguments.
477 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
478 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
479 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
480 commands.
481 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
482 be pointless.
483 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
484 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
485 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
486 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.

506 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
507 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
508 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
509 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
510 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
511 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
512 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ

854 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
855 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
856
857 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
858 change.
859 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
860 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
861 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
862 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
863 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
864 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
865 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
866 backporting
867 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
868 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
869 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
870 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
871 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
872 @MM::ISA does that itself.
873 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
874 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
875 explicitly required MM_Unix.
876 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
877 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
878 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
879 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
880 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
881 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
882 to EU::MM.
883 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.

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

8955.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
896 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
897 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
898 work on Win32/5.6.1.
899 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
900 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
901 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
902 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
903 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
904 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
905
9065.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002

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