1980.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
199
200 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
201
2020.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
203
204 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
205 linked. [Jan Dubois]
206
207 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
208 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
209 Urban]
210
211 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
212 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
213

215
2160.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008

221 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
222 [Craig Berry]
223
2240.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
225
226 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
227 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
228
229 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
230 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
231
2320.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
233
234 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
235 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
236 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
237 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
238
239 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
240 ignored. [Robert May]
241
2420.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
243
244 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
245 as part of the perl core.
246
247 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
248 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
249
250 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
251 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
252 Steve Peters]
253
2540.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
255
256 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
257 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
258 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
259
260 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
261 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
262
2630.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
264
265 - Various OS/2 fixes:
266 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
267 + Got library-file building working better
268 + Handled libperl_overrides better
269 [Ilya Zakharevich]
270
271 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
272 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
273
274 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
275 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
276
277 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
278 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
279 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
280 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
281
2820.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
283
284 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
285 E. Malmberg]
286
2870.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
288
289 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
290 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
291 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
292 Sims]
293
294 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
295 John E. Malmberg]
296
2970.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
298
299 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
300 Scott-Thoennes]
301
302 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
303 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
304 A. Berry]
305
306 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
307 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
308 Scott-Thoennes]
309
3100.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
311
312 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
313 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
314 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
315 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
316 Zakharevich]
317
318 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
319 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
320
321 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
322 platform-independant way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
323 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
324
3250.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
326
327 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
328 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
329 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
330 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
331 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
332 E. Malmberg]
333
3340.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
335
336 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
337 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
338 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
339
3400.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
341
342 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
343 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
344 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
345 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
346 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
347 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
348 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
349
350 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
351 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
352 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
353 [Curt Tilmes]
354
355 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
356 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
357 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
358
359 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
360 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
361 Scott-Thoennes]
362
3630.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
364
365 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
366 Salzenberg]
367
3680.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
369
370 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
371 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
372 where they're very different.
373
374 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
375 Peter Prymmer]
376
3770.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
378
379 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
380 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
381 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
382 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
383 executables.
384
3850.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
386
387 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
388 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
389
3900.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
391
392 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
393 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
394 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
395 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
396
397 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
398 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
399 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
400 and so on. [Randy Sims]
401
402 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
403 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
404 compile(). [Randy Sims]
405
4060.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
407
408 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
409 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
410 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
411
4120.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
413
414 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
415 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
416 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
417
418 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
419
4200.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
421
422 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
423 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
424 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
425
426
4270.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
428
429 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
430 should be quoted.
431
432 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
433
434
4350.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
436
437 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
438 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
439
440 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
441 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
442 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
443
444
4450.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
446
447 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
448 patching help from Randy Sims.
