24 Fixed:
25
26 - Impose deterministic order on cpp-definition options.
27 Heretofore, ExtUtils::CBuilder put cpp-definition options

29 produced noise when diffing build logs.
30 Make this order deterministic. (RT #124106)

197 - handle c compiler and c++ compiler separately
198 (adds requirement for IPC::Cmd) [Jens Rehsack]
199

206 [Jim Keenan]

279
280 - No changes from 0.25_01
281
2820.25_01 - Sat Jun 27 23:13:20 EDT 2009
283
284 - Changed test library to Test::More
285
286 - Added tests for have_compiler
287
288 - Skips tests that need a compiler if have_compiler is false
289
290 - have_compiler will try to compile in the current directory
291 if compiling in tmpdir fails for whatever reason
292
2930.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
294
295 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
296
2970.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
298
299 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
300 linked. [Jan Dubois]
301
302 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
303 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
304 Urban]
305
306 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
307 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
308

310
3110.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008
312
313 - Added 'gnu' and 'gnukfreebsd' as Unix variants. [Niko Tyni]
314
315 - Brought in some VMS fixes from bleadperl: "Correct and complete
316 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
317 [Craig Berry]
318
3190.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
320
321 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
322 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
323
324 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
325 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
326
3270.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
328
329 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
330 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
331 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
332 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
333
334 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
335 ignored. [Robert May]
336
3370.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
338
339 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
340 as part of the perl core.
341
342 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
343 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
344
345 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
346 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
347 Steve Peters]
348
3490.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
350
351 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
352 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
353 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
354
355 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
356 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
357
3580.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
359
360 - Various OS/2 fixes:
361 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
362 + Got library-file building working better
363 + Handled libperl_overrides better
364 [Ilya Zakharevich]
365
366 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
367 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
368
369 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
370 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
371
372 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
373 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
374 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
375 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
376
3770.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
378
379 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
380 E. Malmberg]
381
3820.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
383
384 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
385 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
386 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
387 Sims]
388
389 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
390 John E. Malmberg]
391
3920.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
393
394 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
395 Scott-Thoennes]
396
397 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
398 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
399 A. Berry]
400
401 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
402 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
403 Scott-Thoennes]
404
4050.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
406
407 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
408 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
409 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
410 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
411 Zakharevich]
412
413 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
414 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
415
416 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
a9ccbcd7 417 platform-independent way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
71b9be80
DG
418 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
419
4200.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
421
422 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
423 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
424 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
425 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
426 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
427 E. Malmberg]
428
4290.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
430
431 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
432 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
433 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
434
4350.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
436
437 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
438 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
439 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
440 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
441 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
442 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
443 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
444
445 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
446 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
447 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
448 [Curt Tilmes]
449
450 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
451 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
452 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
453
454 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
455 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
456 Scott-Thoennes]
457
4580.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
459
460 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
461 Salzenberg]
462
4630.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
464
465 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
466 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
467 where they're very different.
468
469 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
470 Peter Prymmer]
471
4720.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
473
474 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
475 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
476 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
477 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
478 executables.
479
4800.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
481
482 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
483 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
484
4850.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
486
487 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
488 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
489 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
490 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
491
492 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
493 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
494 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
495 and so on. [Randy Sims]
496
497 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
498 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
499 compile(). [Randy Sims]
500
5010.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
502
503 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
504 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
505 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
506
5070.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
508
509 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
510 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
511 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
512
513 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
514
5150.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
516
517 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
518 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
519 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
520
521
5220.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
523
524 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
525 should be quoted.
526
527 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
528
529
5300.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
531
532 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
533 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
534
535 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
536 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
537 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
538
539
5400.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
541
542 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
543 patching help from Randy Sims.
