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

8 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
9 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
10 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
11 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
12 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
13 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
14 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
15 to INST_*.
16 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
17 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
18 really bizarre way.
19
206.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
21 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
22 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
23 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
24 * Noting where to find make in the README
25 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
26 on Windows.
27 * 6.10_08 with a new version #.
28
296.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
30 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
31 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
32 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
33 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
34 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
35 This appears to be a rather old bug.
36 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
37 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
38 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
39 of prepending a .. onto it.
40 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
41 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
42 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
43 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
44 repeating the list all over the code.
45 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
46 with DESTDIR set.
47 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
48 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
49 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
50 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
51 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
52 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
53 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
54 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
55 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
56 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
57 when it didn't.
58
596.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
60 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
61 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
62 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
63 to using multiple -e's.
64 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
65 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
66 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
67 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
68 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
69 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
70 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
71 $(ECHO).
72 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

746.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
75 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
76 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
77 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
78 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
79 the basic.t test on Windows.

816.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
82 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
83 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
84 alter your manifest.
85 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
86 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
87 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
88 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
89 around 6.06_01.
90 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
91 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
92 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
93 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
94 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
95 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
96 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

986.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
99 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
100 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
101 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
102 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
103 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
104 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
105 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
106 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
107 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
108 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
109 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
110 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
111 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
112 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
113 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
114 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
115 sometimes don't get installed.
116 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
117 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
118 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
119 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
120
1216.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
122 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
123 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
124 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
125 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
126 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
127 Fixed.
128 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
129 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
130 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
131 (Stas Bekman)
132 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
133 (Craig Berry)
134 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
135 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
136 miserably.
137 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
138
1396.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
140 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
141 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
142 Just on OS/2.
143
1446.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
145 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
146 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
147 to skip installing a file.
148 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
149 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
150 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
151 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
152 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
153 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
154 removed. No longer relevent.
155 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
156 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
157 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
158 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
159 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
160 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
161 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
162 properly before. (Craig Berry)
163 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
164 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
165 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
166 reading.
167 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
168 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
169 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
170 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
171 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
172
173# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
174# so much change between 6.05 and now.

177 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
178 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
179 warning because of this.
180 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
181 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
182 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
183 Worked around.
184 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
185 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
186
1876.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
188 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
189 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
190 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
191 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
192 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
193 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
194 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
195 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
196 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
197 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
198 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
199 Missing since 5.6.1.
200 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
201 command line lengths.
202 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
203 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
204 eof() not honor tied handles.
205 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
206 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
207
2086.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
209 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
210 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
211 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
212 to think modules weren't installed.
213 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
214 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
215 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
216 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
217 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
218 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
219 warn_if_old_packlist().
220 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
221 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
222 in the first place.
223 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
224 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
225 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
226 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
227 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
228 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
229 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
230 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
231 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
232 expansion
233 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
234 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
235 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
236 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
237 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
238 MakeMaker.
239 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
240 - Added compile & POD test
241 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
242 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
243 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
244 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
245 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
246 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
247 [perl #21526]
248
2496.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
250 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
251 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
252 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
253 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
254 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
255 fixpath() work again.
256
2576.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
258 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
259 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
260 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
261 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
262 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
263 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
264 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
265 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
266 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
267 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
268 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
269 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
270 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
271 using that.
272 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
273 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
274 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
275 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
276 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
277 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
278 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
279 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
280 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
281 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
282 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
283 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
284 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
285 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
286 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
287 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
288 by default.
289 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
290 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
291 - Improved DISTNAME docs
292 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
293 * Documented dist()
294 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
295 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
296 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
297 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
298 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
299 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
300 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
301 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
302 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
303 of the clean target.
304 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
305 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
306 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
307 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
308 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
309 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
310 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
311 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
312 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
313 target.
314 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
315 they come first.
316 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
317 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
318 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
319 init_platform().
320 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
321 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
322 init_VERSION().
323 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
324 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
325
326 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
327 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
328 init_others() to init_platform()
329 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
330 init_platform()
331 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
332 constants() to init_platform()
333
334 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
335 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
336 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
337 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
338 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
339 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
340 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
341 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
342 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
343
344 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
345 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
346 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
347 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
348 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
349 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
350 init_VERSION
351 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
352 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
353 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
354
355 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
356 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
357 Everything else was redundant.
358
359 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
360 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
361 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
362 into init_linker().
363 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
364 MM_VMS_VERSION.
365 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
366 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
367 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
368 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
369 overrides.
370 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
371 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
372 unportable part of the realclean target.
373 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
374 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
375 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
376 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
377 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
378 is explicitly set to empty.
379 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
380 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
381 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
382 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
383 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
384 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
385 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
386 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
387 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
388 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
389 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
390 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
391 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
392 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
393 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
394 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
395 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
396 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
397 dont_execute arguments.
398 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
399 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
400 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
401 commands.
402 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
403 be pointless.
404 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
405 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
406 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
407 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
408
4096.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
410 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
411 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
412
4136.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
414 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
415 right.
416 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
417 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
418 - Documented the LD flag.
419 * Documented prompt()
