2 - Update our META.yml to version 1.2 of the spec.
3 * Update the SEE ALSO to mention Module::Build, Module::Install,
4 ExtUtils::ModuleMaker and Module::Starter.
5 - Fix ARCHITECTURE tag in PPD generation for 5.8 (patch taken from
6 ActiveState 819). [rt.cpan.org 20566]
7 * Bring ExtUtils::Manifest up to 1.48

96.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
10 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
11 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
12 replaced with something better next version.
13 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
14 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
15 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
16 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
17 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
18 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
19 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
20 same place?"
21 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
22 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
23
246.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
25 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
26
276.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
28 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
29 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
30 empty.
31 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
32 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
33 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
34 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
35 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
36 - $Revision was broken.
37 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
38 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
39 - Clarified that test_f() exits.

42 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
43 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
44 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
45 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
46 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
47 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
48 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
49 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
50 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
51 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
52 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
53 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
54 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
55 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
56 version.
57 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
58 text to the generated META.yml.
59 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
60 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
61 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
62 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
63 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
64 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
65 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
66 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
67 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
68 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
69 dmake or nmake.

716.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
72 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
73 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
74 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
75 Test::Harness.
76

RGS
776.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
78 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
79 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
80 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
81 modules.
82 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
83 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
84

RGS
856.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
86 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
87 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
88 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
89 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
90 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
91 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
92 (bleadperl@24185)
93 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
94
7292dc67
RGS
956.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
96 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
97 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
98
996.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
100 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
101 passed the file they were to generate.
102 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
103 now documented.
104 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
105
1066.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
107
1086.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
109 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
110 version is found.
111 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
112
1136.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
114 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
115 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
116 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
117
1186.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
119 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
120 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
121 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
122 previous alpha releases.
123
1246.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
125 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
126 and better.
127 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
128 now possible.
129
1306.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
131 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
132 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
133 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
134 XSUBPP alone.
135 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
136 make commands too long on VMS.
137 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
138 .exists files everywhere.
139 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
140 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
141 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
142 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
143 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
144 Module::Install
145
1466.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
147 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
148 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
149 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
150 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
151 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
152
1536.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
154 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
155 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
156 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
157 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
158 it yet. I'll do that next release.
159
1606.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
161 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
162 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
163 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
164 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
165 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
166
1676.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
168 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
169
1706.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
171 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
172 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
173 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
174 things like SVN's perl bindings.
175
1766.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
177 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
178 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
179 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
180 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
181 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
182 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
183 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
184 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
185 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
186 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
187
1886.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
189 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
190 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
191 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
192 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
193 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
194 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
195 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
196 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
197 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
198 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.

2006.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
201 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
202 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
203 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
204
2056.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
206 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
207 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
208 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
209 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
210 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
211 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
212
2136.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
214 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
215 installing some Tk modules.
216
2176.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
218 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
219 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
220
2216.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
222 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
223 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
224 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
225
2266.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
227 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
228 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
229 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
230 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
231 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
232 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
233 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
234 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
235 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 236 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 237 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
238 [Greg Matheson]
239 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
240 [Slaven Rezic]
241 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
242 [Slaven Rezic]
243 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
244 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
245 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
246 [Ilya Zakharevich]
247 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
248 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
249 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
250 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
251 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
252 Module::Build instead.
253 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
254 VMS. [rt 4675]
255 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
256 existing uses.
257 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
258 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
259 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
260 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
261 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
262 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
263 [rt 4687]
264 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
265 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
266 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
267 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
268 VMS. [rt 4676]
269 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
270 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 271
af7522e5 2726.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 273 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
274 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
275 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
276 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
277 for backwards compatibility.
278 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
279 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.
280

2816.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
282 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
283 take a more conservative approach.
284 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
285 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
286 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
287 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
288 nmake [rt 4285 4301]
289

RGS
2906.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
291 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
292 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
293 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
294 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
295 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
296 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
297
2986.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
299 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
300 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
301 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
302 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
303 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
304 Perls.
305 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
306 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
307 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
308 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
309 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
310 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
311 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
312 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
313 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
314 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
315 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
316 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
317 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
318 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
319 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
320 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
321 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
322 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
323 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
324 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
325 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
326 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
327 November and nobody noticed.
328 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
329 by the user.
330 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
331 * Documented UNINST=1
332

3336.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
334 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
335 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
336 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
337 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
338 (Orton Yves)
339 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
340 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
341 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
342 ndbgperl.exe.
343 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.
344
2c91f887
JH
3456.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
346 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
347 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
348 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
349 [Sreeji K Das]
350 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
351 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
352 bleadperl@20530)
353 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
354 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)
355

3566.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
357 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
358 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
359
3606.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
361 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
362 itself and the metafile documentation.
363 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
364 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
365 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
366 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
367 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
368 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

3706.13 Thu Jul 31 16:48:01 PDT 2003
371 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
372 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
373 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
374 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.

3766.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
377 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
378 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
379 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
380 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
381 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
382 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
383 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
384 to INST_*.
385 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
386 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
387 really bizarre way.
388
3896.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
390 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
391 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
392 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
393 * Noting where to find make in the README
394 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
395 on Windows.
1b0fc073

396
3976.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
398 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
399 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
400 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
401 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
402 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
403 This appears to be a rather old bug.
404 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
405 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
406 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
407 of prepending a .. onto it.
408 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
409 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
410 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
411 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
412 repeating the list all over the code.
413 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
414 with DESTDIR set.
415 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
416 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
417 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
418 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
419 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
420 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
421 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
422 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
423 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
424 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
425 when it didn't.
426
4276.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
428 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
429 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
430 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
431 to using multiple -e's.
432 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
433 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
434 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
435 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
436 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
437 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
438 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
439 $(ECHO).
440 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

4426.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
443 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
444 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
445 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
446 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
447 the basic.t test on Windows.

450 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
451 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
452 alter your manifest.
453 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
454 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
455 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
456 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
457 around 6.06_01.
458 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
459 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
460 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
461 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
462 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
463 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
464 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

4666.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
467 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
468 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
469 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
470 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
471 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
472 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
473 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
474 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
475 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
476 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
477 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
478 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
479 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
480 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
481 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
482 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
483 sometimes don't get installed.
484 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
485 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
486 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
487 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
488
4896.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
490 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
491 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
492 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
493 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
494 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
495 Fixed.
496 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
497 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
498 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
499 (Stas Bekman)
500 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
501 (Craig Berry)
502 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
503 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
504 miserably.
505 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
506
5076.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
508 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
509 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
510 Just on OS/2.
511
5126.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
513 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
514 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
515 to skip installing a file.
516 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
517 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
518 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
519 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
520 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
521 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
522 removed. No longer relevent.
523 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
524 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
525 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
526 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
527 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
528 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
529 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
530 properly before. (Craig Berry)
531 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
532 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
533 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
534 reading.
535 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
536 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
537 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
538 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
539 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)

541# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
542# so much change between 6.05 and now.

545 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
546 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
547 warning because of this.
548 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
549 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
550 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
551 Worked around.
552 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
553 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
554
5556.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
556 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
557 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
558 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
559 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
560 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
561 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
562 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
563 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
564 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
565 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
566 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
567 Missing since 5.6.1.
568 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
569 command line lengths.
570 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
571 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
572 eof() not honor tied handles.
573 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
574 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
575
5766.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
577 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
578 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
579 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
580 to think modules weren't installed.
581 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
582 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
583 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
584 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
585 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
586 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
587 warn_if_old_packlist().
588 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
589 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
590 in the first place.
591 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
592 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
593 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
594 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
595 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
596 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
597 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
598 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
599 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
600 expansion
601 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
602 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
603 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
604 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
605 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
606 MakeMaker.
607 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
608 - Added compile & POD test
609 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
610 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
611 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
612 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
613 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
614 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
615 [perl #21526]
616
6176.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
618 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
619 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
620 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
621 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
622 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
623 fixpath() work again.
624
6256.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
626 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
627 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
628 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
629 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
630 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
631 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
632 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
633 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
634 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
635 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
636 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
637 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
638 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
639 using that.
640 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
641 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
642 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
643 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
644 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
645 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
646 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
647 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
648 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
649 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
650 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
651 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
652 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
653 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
654 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
655 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
656 by default.
657 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
658 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
659 - Improved DISTNAME docs
660 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
661 * Documented dist()
662 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
663 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
664 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
665 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
666 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
667 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
668 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
669 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
670 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
671 of the clean target.
672 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
673 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
674 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
675 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
676 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
677 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
678 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
679 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
680 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
681 target.
682 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
683 they come first.
684 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
685 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
686 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
687 init_platform().
688 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
689 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
690 init_VERSION().
691 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
692 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
693
694 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
695 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
696 init_others() to init_platform()
697 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
698 init_platform()
699 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
700 constants() to init_platform()
701
702 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
703 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
704 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
705 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
706 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
707 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
708 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
709 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
710 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
711
712 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
713 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
714 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
715 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
716 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
717 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
718 init_VERSION
719 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
720 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
721 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
722
723 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
724 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
725 Everything else was redundant.
726
727 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
728 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
729 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
730 into init_linker().
731 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
732 MM_VMS_VERSION.
733 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
734 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
735 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
736 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
737 overrides.
738 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
739 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
740 unportable part of the realclean target.
741 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
742 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
743 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
744 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
745 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
746 is explicitly set to empty.
747 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
748 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
749 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
750 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
751 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
752 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
753 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
754 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
755 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
756 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
757 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
758 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
759 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
760 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
761 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
762 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
763 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
764 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
765 dont_execute arguments.
766 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
767 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
768 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
769 commands.
770 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
771 be pointless.
772 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
773 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
774 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
775 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
776
7776.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
778 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
779 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
780
7816.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
782 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
783 right.
784 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
785 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
786 - Documented the LD flag.
787 * Documented prompt()
788 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
789 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
790 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
791 (bleadperl 17488)
792 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
793 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
794 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
795 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
796 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
797 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
798 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
799 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
800 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
801 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
802 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)
803

8046.03 Wed Jun 19 17:06:14 EDT 2002
805 - Documented that we're clamping down on cargo-cult MakeMaker
806 programming.
807 - Eased up the parameter verification to leave errant values alone.
808 - Doug MacEachern documented LDDLFLAGS and added to known parameters.
809 - Possible fix for XS compiles on Cygwin for pre 5.8 perls.

8116.02 Sat Jun 15 19:46:06 EDT 2002
812 - ExtUtils::Installed->modules() was broken in scalar context
813 - Sync bleadperl 16922: Netware updates from Ananth Kesari.
