183
1840.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
185
186 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
187
1880.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
189
190 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
191 linked. [Jan Dubois]
192
193 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
194 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
195 Urban]
196
197 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
198 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
199

201
2020.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008
203
204 - Added 'gnu' and 'gnukfreebsd' as Unix variants. [Niko Tyni]
205
206 - Brought in some VMS fixes from bleadperl: "Correct and complete
207 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
208 [Craig Berry]
209
2100.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
211
212 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
213 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
214
215 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
216 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
217
2180.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
219
220 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
221 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
222 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
223 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
224
225 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
226 ignored. [Robert May]
227
2280.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
229
230 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
231 as part of the perl core.
232
233 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
234 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
235
236 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
237 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
238 Steve Peters]
239
2400.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
241
242 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
243 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
244 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
245
246 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
247 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
248
2490.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
250
251 - Various OS/2 fixes:
252 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
253 + Got library-file building working better
254 + Handled libperl_overrides better
255 [Ilya Zakharevich]
256
257 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
258 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
259
260 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
261 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
262
263 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
264 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
265 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
266 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
267
2680.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
269
270 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
271 E. Malmberg]
272
2730.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
274
275 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
276 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
277 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
278 Sims]
279
280 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
281 John E. Malmberg]
282
2830.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
284
285 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
286 Scott-Thoennes]
287
288 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
289 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
290 A. Berry]
291
292 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
293 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
294 Scott-Thoennes]
295
2960.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
297
298 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
299 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
300 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
301 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
302 Zakharevich]
303
304 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
305 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
306
307 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
308 platform-independant way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
309 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
310
3110.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
312
313 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
314 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
315 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
316 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
317 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
318 E. Malmberg]
319
3200.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
321
322 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
323 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
324 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
325
3260.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
327
328 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
329 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
330 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
331 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
332 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
333 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
334 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
335
336 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
337 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
338 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
339 [Curt Tilmes]
340
341 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
342 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
343 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
344
345 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
346 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
347 Scott-Thoennes]
348
3490.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
350
351 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
352 Salzenberg]
353
3540.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
355
356 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
357 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
358 where they're very different.
359
360 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
361 Peter Prymmer]
362
3630.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
364
365 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
366 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
367 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
368 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
369 executables.
370
3710.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
372
373 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
374 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
375
3760.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
377
378 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
379 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
380 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
381 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
382
383 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
384 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
385 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
386 and so on. [Randy Sims]
387
388 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
389 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
390 compile(). [Randy Sims]
391
3920.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
393
394 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
395 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
396 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
397
3980.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
399
400 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
401 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
402 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
403
404 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
405
4060.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
407
408 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
409 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
410 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
411
412
4130.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
414
415 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
416 should be quoted.
417
418 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
419
420
4210.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
422
423 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
424 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
425
426 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
427 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
428 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
429
430
4310.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
432
433 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
434 patching help from Randy Sims.
