2 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
3 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
4
56.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
6 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
7 itself and the metafile documentation.
8 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
9 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
10 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
11 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
12 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
13 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

22 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
23 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
24 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
25 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
26 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
27 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
28 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
29 to INST_*.
30 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
31 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
32 really bizarre way.
33
346.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
35 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
36 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
37 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
38 * Noting where to find make in the README
39 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
40 on Windows.

43 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
44 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
45 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
46 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
47 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
48 This appears to be a rather old bug.
49 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
50 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
51 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
52 of prepending a .. onto it.
53 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
54 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
55 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
56 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
57 repeating the list all over the code.
58 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
59 with DESTDIR set.
60 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
61 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
62 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
63 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
64 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
65 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
66 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
67 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
68 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
69 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
70 when it didn't.
71
726.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
73 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
74 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
75 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
76 to using multiple -e's.
77 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
78 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
79 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
80 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
81 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
82 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
83 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
84 $(ECHO).
85 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

876.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
88 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
89 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
90 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
91 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
92 the basic.t test on Windows.

946.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
95 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
96 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
97 alter your manifest.
98 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
99 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
100 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
101 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
102 around 6.06_01.
103 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
104 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
105 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
106 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
107 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
108 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
109 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

1116.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
112 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
113 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
114 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
115 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
116 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
117 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
118 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
119 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
120 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
121 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
122 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
123 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
124 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
125 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
126 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
127 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
128 sometimes don't get installed.
129 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
130 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
131 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
132 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
133
1346.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
135 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
136 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
137 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
138 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
139 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
140 Fixed.
141 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
142 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
143 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
144 (Stas Bekman)
145 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
146 (Craig Berry)
147 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
148 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
149 miserably.
150 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
151
1526.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
153 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
154 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
155 Just on OS/2.
156
1576.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
158 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
159 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
160 to skip installing a file.
161 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
162 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
163 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
164 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
165 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
166 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
167 removed. No longer relevent.
168 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
169 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
170 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
171 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
172 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
173 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
174 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
175 properly before. (Craig Berry)
176 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
177 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
178 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
179 reading.
180 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
181 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
182 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
183 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
184 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
185
186# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
187# so much change between 6.05 and now.

190 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
191 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
192 warning because of this.
193 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
194 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
195 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
196 Worked around.
197 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
198 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
199
2006.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
201 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
202 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
203 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
204 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
205 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
206 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
207 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
208 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
209 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
210 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
211 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
212 Missing since 5.6.1.
213 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
214 command line lengths.
215 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
216 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
217 eof() not honor tied handles.
218 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
219 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
220
2216.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
222 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
223 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
224 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
225 to think modules weren't installed.
226 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
227 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
228 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
229 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
230 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
231 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
232 warn_if_old_packlist().
233 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
234 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
235 in the first place.
236 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
237 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
238 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
239 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
240 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
241 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
242 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
243 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
244 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
245 expansion
246 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
247 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
248 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
249 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
250 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
251 MakeMaker.
252 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
253 - Added compile & POD test
254 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
255 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
256 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
257 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
258 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
259 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
260 [perl #21526]
261
2626.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
263 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
264 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
265 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
266 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
267 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
268 fixpath() work again.
269
2706.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
271 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
272 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
273 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
274 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
275 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
276 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
277 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
278 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
279 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
280 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
281 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
282 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
283 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
284 using that.
285 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
286 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
287 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
288 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
289 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
290 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
291 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
292 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
293 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
294 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
295 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
296 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
297 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
298 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
299 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
300 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
301 by default.
302 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
303 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
304 - Improved DISTNAME docs
305 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
306 * Documented dist()
307 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
308 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
309 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
310 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
311 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
312 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
313 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
314 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
315 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
316 of the clean target.
317 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
318 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
319 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
320 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
321 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
322 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
323 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
324 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
325 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
326 target.
327 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
328 they come first.
329 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
330 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
331 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
332 init_platform().
333 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
334 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
335 init_VERSION().
336 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
337 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
338
339 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
340 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
341 init_others() to init_platform()
342 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
343 init_platform()
344 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
345 constants() to init_platform()
346
347 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
348 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
349 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
350 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
351 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
352 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
353 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
354 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
355 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
356
357 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
358 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
359 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
360 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
361 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
362 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
363 init_VERSION
364 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
365 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
366 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
367
368 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
369 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
370 Everything else was redundant.
371
372 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
373 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
374 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
375 into init_linker().
376 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
377 MM_VMS_VERSION.
378 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
379 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
380 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
381 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
382 overrides.
383 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
384 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
385 unportable part of the realclean target.
386 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
387 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
388 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
389 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
390 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
391 is explicitly set to empty.
392 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
393 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
394 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
395 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
396 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
397 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
398 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
399 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
400 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
401 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
402 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
403 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
404 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
405 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
406 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
407 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
408 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
409 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
410 dont_execute arguments.
411 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
412 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
413 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
414 commands.
415 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
416 be pointless.
417 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
