2 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
3 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
4 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
5 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
6 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
7 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
8 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
9 to INST_*.
10 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
11 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
12 really bizarre way.
13
146.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
15 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
16 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
17 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
18 * Noting where to find make in the README
19 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
20 on Windows.
21 * 6.10_08 with a new version #.
22
236.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
24 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
25 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
26 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
27 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
28 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
29 This appears to be a rather old bug.
30 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
31 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
32 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
33 of prepending a .. onto it.
34 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
35 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
36 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
37 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
38 repeating the list all over the code.
39 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
40 with DESTDIR set.
41 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
42 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
43 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
44 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
45 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
46 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
47 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
48 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
49 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
50 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
51 when it didn't.
52
536.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
54 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
55 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
56 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
57 to using multiple -e's.
58 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
59 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
60 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
61 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
62 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
63 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
64 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
65 $(ECHO).
66 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

686.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
69 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
70 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
71 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
72 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
73 the basic.t test on Windows.

756.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
76 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
77 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
78 alter your manifest.
79 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
80 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
81 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
82 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
83 around 6.06_01.
84 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
85 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
86 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
87 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
88 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
89 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
90 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

926.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
93 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
94 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
95 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
96 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
97 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
98 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
99 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
100 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
101 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
102 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
103 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
104 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
105 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
106 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
107 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
108 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
109 sometimes don't get installed.
110 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
111 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
112 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
113 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
114
1156.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
116 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
117 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
118 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
119 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
120 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
121 Fixed.
122 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
123 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
124 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
125 (Stas Bekman)
126 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
127 (Craig Berry)
128 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
129 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
130 miserably.
131 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
132
1336.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
134 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
135 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
136 Just on OS/2.
137
1386.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
139 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
140 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
141 to skip installing a file.
142 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
143 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
144 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
145 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
146 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
147 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
148 removed. No longer relevent.
149 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
150 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
151 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
152 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
153 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
154 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
155 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
156 properly before. (Craig Berry)
157 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
158 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
159 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
160 reading.
161 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
162 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
163 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
164 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
165 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
166
167# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
168# so much change between 6.05 and now.

MS
171 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
172 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
173 warning because of this.
174 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
175 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
176 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
177 Worked around.
178 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
179 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
180
1816.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
182 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
183 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
184 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
185 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
186 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
187 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
188 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
189 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
190 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
191 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
192 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
193 Missing since 5.6.1.
194 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
195 command line lengths.
196 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
197 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
198 eof() not honor tied handles.
199 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
200 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
201
2026.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
203 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
204 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
205 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
206 to think modules weren't installed.
207 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
208 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
209 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
210 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
211 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
212 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
213 warn_if_old_packlist().
214 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
215 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
216 in the first place.
217 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
218 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
219 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
220 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
221 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
222 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
223 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
224 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
225 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
226 expansion
227 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
228 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
229 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
230 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
231 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
232 MakeMaker.
233 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
234 - Added compile & POD test
235 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
236 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
237 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
238 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
239 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
240 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
241 [perl #21526]
242
2436.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
244 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
245 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
246 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
247 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
248 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
249 fixpath() work again.
250
2516.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
252 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
253 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
254 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
255 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
256 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
257 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
258 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
259 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
260 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
261 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
262 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
263 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
264 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
265 using that.
266 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
267 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
268 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
269 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
270 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
271 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
272 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
273 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
274 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
275 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
276 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
277 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
278 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
279 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
280 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
281 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
282 by default.
283 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
284 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
285 - Improved DISTNAME docs
286 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
287 * Documented dist()
288 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
289 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
290 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
291 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
292 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
293 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
294 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
295 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
296 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
297 of the clean target.
298 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
299 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
300 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
301 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
302 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
303 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
304 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
305 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
306 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
307 target.
308 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
309 they come first.
310 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
311 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
312 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
313 init_platform().
314 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
315 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
316 init_VERSION().
317 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
318 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
319
320 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
321 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
322 init_others() to init_platform()
323 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
324 init_platform()
325 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
326 constants() to init_platform()
327
328 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
329 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
330 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
331 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
332 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
333 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
334 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
335 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
336 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
337
338 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
339 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
340 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
341 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
342 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
343 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
344 init_VERSION
345 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
346 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
347 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
348
349 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
350 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
351 Everything else was redundant.
352
353 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
354 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
355 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
356 into init_linker().
357 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
358 MM_VMS_VERSION.
359 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
360 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
361 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
362 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
363 overrides.
364 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
365 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
366 unportable part of the realclean target.
367 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
368 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
369 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
370 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
371 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
372 is explicitly set to empty.
373 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
374 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
375 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
376 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
377 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
378 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
379 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
380 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
381 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
382 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
383 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
384 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
385 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
386 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
387 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
388 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
389 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
390 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
391 dont_execute arguments.
392 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
393 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
394 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
395 commands.
396 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
397 be pointless.
398 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
399 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
400 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
401 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
402
4036.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
404 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
405 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
406
4076.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
408 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
409 right.
410 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
411 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
412 - Documented the LD flag.
413 * Documented prompt()
414 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
415 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
416 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
417 (bleadperl 17488)
418 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
419 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
420 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
421 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
422 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
423 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
