250
251 - Changed test library to Test::More
252
253 - Added tests for have_compiler
254
255 - Skips tests that need a compiler if have_compiler is false

259
2600.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
261
262 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
263
2640.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
265
266 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
267 linked. [Jan Dubois]
268
269 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
270 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
271 Urban]
272
273 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
274 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
275

277
2780.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008

283 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
284 [Craig Berry]
285
2860.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
287
288 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
289 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
290
291 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
292 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
293
2940.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
295
296 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
297 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
298 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
299 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
300
301 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
302 ignored. [Robert May]
303
3040.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
305
306 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
307 as part of the perl core.
308
309 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
310 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
311
312 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
313 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
314 Steve Peters]
315
3160.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
317
318 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
319 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
320 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
321
322 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
323 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
324
3250.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
326
327 - Various OS/2 fixes:
328 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
329 + Got library-file building working better
330 + Handled libperl_overrides better
331 [Ilya Zakharevich]
332
333 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
334 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
335
336 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
337 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
338
339 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
340 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
341 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
342 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
343
3440.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
345
346 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
347 E. Malmberg]
348
3490.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
350
351 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
352 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
353 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
354 Sims]
355
356 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
357 John E. Malmberg]
358
3590.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
360
361 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
362 Scott-Thoennes]
363
364 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
365 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
366 A. Berry]
367
368 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
369 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
370 Scott-Thoennes]
371
3720.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
373
374 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
375 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
376 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
377 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
378 Zakharevich]
379
380 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
381 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
382
383 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
a9ccbcd7 384 platform-independent way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
71b9be80
DG
385 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
386
3870.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
388
389 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
390 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
391 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
392 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
393 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
394 E. Malmberg]
395
3960.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
397
398 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
399 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
400 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
401
4020.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
403
404 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
405 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
406 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
407 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
408 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
409 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
410 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
411
412 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
413 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
414 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
415 [Curt Tilmes]
416
417 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
418 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
419 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
420
421 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
422 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
423 Scott-Thoennes]
424
4250.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
426
427 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
428 Salzenberg]
429
4300.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
431
432 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
433 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
434 where they're very different.
435
436 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
437 Peter Prymmer]
438
4390.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
440
441 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
442 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
443 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
444 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
445 executables.
446
4470.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
448
449 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
450 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
451
4520.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
453
454 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
455 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
456 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
457 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
458
459 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
460 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
461 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
462 and so on. [Randy Sims]
463
464 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
465 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
466 compile(). [Randy Sims]
467
4680.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
469
470 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
471 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
472 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
473
4740.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
475
476 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
477 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
478 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
479
480 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
481
4820.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
483
484 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
485 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
486 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
487
488
4890.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
490
491 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
492 should be quoted.
493
494 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
495
496
4970.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
498
499 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
500 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
501
502 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
503 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
504 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
505
506
5070.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
508
509 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
510 patching help from Randy Sims.
