16.42 Fri Dec 7 17:00:14 PST 2007
2 Bug Fixes
3 - 6.33 moved PREREQ_FATAL to happen after CONFIGURE. This meant if
4 your CONFIGURE use a prereq it would fail and no PREREQ_FATAL
5 message would be displayed.
6 - Put the "nicetext" functionality back, VMS needs it to deal with
7 other people's custom make. But rename it to the more
8 accurate maketext_filter(), test it and fix a bug where it would
9 stop processing if it saw a macro declaration.

116.40 Thu Dec 6 03:00:47 PST 2007
12 Bug Fixes
13 - Remove the dubious nicetext() Makefile formatting hack to account for
14 a lack of space between the target and colon needed on VMS. This
15 interfered with META.yml creation on VMS and possibly other output.
16 - Fix the remaining targets which don't have a space between the target
17 and the colon.

226.37_03 Mon Nov 26 14:15:34 PST 2007
23 Tests
24 - parse_version.t had wrong test count when version.pm isn't installed.
25 - Fixed some warnings in the XS module we're using for testing.
26 - "our $VERSION" test in parse_version.t was never running
27 - Quoting uses of 1.2.3 style versions in parse_version.t to protect
28 older perls.
29
30 Portability
31 - Moved the minimum required version up to 5.6.0.

336.37_02 Sun Nov 25 23:33:14 PST 2007
34 Test Improvements
35 - Added a test for a basic XS build.
36
37 Bug Fixes
38 - A refactoring in 6.37_01 broke XS compilation.
39
406.37_01 Sun Nov 25 17:05:53 PST 2007
41 Improvements
42 - Upgraded the META.yml to version 1.3 of the spec (which really
43 doesn't change anything). Thanks bdfoy.
44 - MakeMaker now always includes the required 'author' field in
45 the META.yml even if it's undef to comply with the META.yml spec.
46 - Updated ExtUtils-Install to latest version (1.44)
47 - Unified the version numbers of all modules.
48
49 Test Fixes
50 - cd() test on VMS used non-native paths. [bleadperl 31534]
51 - Removed uses of "no_plan" in tests to remain compatible with
52 old versions of Test::Harness.
53 - writemakefile_args.t had the wrong test count if version.pm isn't
54 installed.
55
56 Bug Fixes
57 - $VERSION detection code would be confused by "sub version"
58 [rt.cpan.org 30747]
59 - LINKTYPE=static will now be propagated to child builds.
60 [bleadperl 31761]
61
62 Portability Fixes
63 - Add "dragonfly" to the list of BSDish operating systems
64 - BSD detection code would not pick up bsdos or internix
65 - Fix detection of shared libperl on NetBSD [bleadperl 31526]
66
67
686.36 Tue Jul 3 01:06:40 PDT 2007
69 Test Fixes
70 - version.pm prior to 0.7203 caused Foo->VERSION to reformat
71 $Foo::VERSION. This caused prereq.t to fail.
72
736.35 Sun Jul 1 20:53:38 PDT 2007
74 New Features
75 * MakeMaker will now try to "use version" before parsing $VERSION.
76 This allows "$VERSION = qv(1.2.3)" to work.
77
78 Test Fixes
79 - writemakefile_args.t now works with older versions of version.pm
80
816.34 Sat Jun 30 11:06:54 CDT 2007
82 Test Fixes
83 - Accidentally hard coded the version of strict.pm [rt.cpan.org 27838]
84
856.33 Fri Jun 29 17:15:34 CDT 2007
86 New Features
87 * VERSION now accepts version objects without warning.
88 [rt.cpan.org 26075]
89
90 Bug Fixes
91 - Properly not installing MANIFEST.SKIP when ExtUtils::Manifest is not
92 being installed. [rt.cpan.org 21318]
93 - fixin() no longer clobbers $/ [rt.cpan.org 26234]
94 - Fixed bug finding cross-compiled perls [bleadperl 31404]
95 - Looking up to 8 levels up to find uninstalled perls
96 [bleadperl 30932]
97 * A test failure in a sub-project would not cause "make test" to
98 fail. [rt.cpan.org 27804]
99
100 Windows
101 - Embed manifest files in EXEs and DLLs when building with VC++ 8.x
102 [bleadperl #29266] [rt.cpan.org 26208]
103 - Improved the subdir command code so DIR can do more than one level
104 down. [rt.cpan.org 25180]
105 - Fix static builds on Win32 by using -DPERLDLL [bleadperl 31229]
106
107 VMS
108 - Use linker flags rather than compiler flags to determine if the
109 perl sharable image was linked debug. This keeps OPTIMIZE from
110 confusing things. [rt.cpan.org 25268]
111 - Accidental use of $\ in a regex. [bleadperl 30521]
112
113 BSD
114 - If calling perl causes MakeMaker to emit warnings, then it
115 cannot find the location of its binary. [rt.cpan.org 23178]
116
117 Doc Improvements
118 - Typo fixes. $(TOUNIX) -> $(TO_UNIX). [rt.cpan.org 23495]
119 - The example for setting $VERSION from $Revision$ in SVN was
120 incorrect. (Thanks to ROBERTMAY@cpan.org) [rt.cpan.org 26995]
121 - Document what's wrong with PREFIX and what to use instead.
122 [rt.cpan.org 12919]
123 - Improve the PREREQ_FATAL docs to make it really clear that you
124 do NOT want to use this!
125
126 Misc
127 - Provide information during the install about whether we're using the
128 installed or provided dependency (ie. ExtUtils::Command).
129 - Updated included versions of ExtUtils::Manifest and Command.
130 - Add .bak and .old to veryclean [rt.cpan.org 21284]
131 - Improved the PREREQ_FATAL message.
132
1336.32 Wed Feb 21 07:59:57 PST 2007
134 New Features
135 - WriteEmptyMakefile() is now exportable upon request.
136
137 Bug Fixes
138 - Set binmode() when writing to files in Command.t for operating
139 systems which need that sort of thing. [bleadperl #29578]
140 - Fixed a minor duplication in manifypod_target(). [rt.cpan.org 22149]
141
142 Test Fixes
143 - The build_man.t test would fail if your Perl is configured to not
144 generate man pages ($Config{installman3dir} is set to none).
145
146 Doc Improvements
147 - Made the home dir install examples a little more friendly to non-Unix
148 folks.
149
150 Misc
151 - miniperl no longer has the Win32 functions.
152 - Turn on "use strict" where it was missing.
153

SP
1546.31 Mon Oct 9 16:54:47 PDT 2006
155 - Update our META.yml to version 1.2 of the spec.
156 * Update the SEE ALSO to mention Module::Build, Module::Install,
157 ExtUtils::ModuleMaker and Module::Starter.
158 - Fix ARCHITECTURE tag in PPD generation for 5.8 (patch taken from
159 ActiveState 819). [rt.cpan.org 20566]
160 * Bring ExtUtils::Manifest up to 1.48
161
58d32538
RGS
1626.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
163 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
164 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
165 replaced with something better next version.
166 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
167 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
168 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
169 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
170 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
171 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
172 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
173 same place?"
174 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
175 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
176
1776.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
178 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
179
1806.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
181 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
182 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
183 empty.
184 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
185 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
186 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
187 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
188 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
189 - $Revision was broken.
190 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
191 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
192 - Clarified that test_f() exits.
193

1946.30_01 Tue Aug 16 23:53:27 PDT 2005
195 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
196 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
197 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
198 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
199 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
200 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
201 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
202 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
203 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
204 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
205 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
206 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
207 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
208 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
209 version.
210 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
211 text to the generated META.yml.
212 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
213 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
214 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
215 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
216 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
217 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
218 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
219 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
220 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
221 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
222 dmake or nmake.

2246.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
225 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
226 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
227 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
228 Test::Harness.
229
41e5fcb0
RGS
2306.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
231 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
232 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
233 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
234 modules.
235 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
236 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
237

RGS
2386.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
239 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
240 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
241 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
242 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
243 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
244 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
245 (bleadperl@24185)
246 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
247
7292dc67
RGS
2486.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
249 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
250 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
251
2526.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
253 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
254 passed the file they were to generate.
255 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
256 now documented.
257 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
258
2596.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
260
2616.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
262 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
263 version is found.
264 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
265
2666.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
267 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
268 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
269 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
270
2716.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
272 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
273 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
274 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
275 previous alpha releases.
276
2776.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
278 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
279 and better.
280 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
281 now possible.
282
2836.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
284 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
285 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
286 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
287 XSUBPP alone.
288 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
289 make commands too long on VMS.
290 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
291 .exists files everywhere.
292 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
293 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
294 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
295 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
296 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
297 Module::Install
298
2996.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
300 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
301 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
302 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
303 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
304 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
305
3066.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
307 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
308 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
309 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
310 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
311 it yet. I'll do that next release.
312
3136.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
314 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
315 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
316 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
317 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
318 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
319
3206.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
321 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
322
3236.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
324 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
325 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
326 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
327 things like SVN's perl bindings.
328
3296.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
330 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
331 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
332 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
333 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
334 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
335 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
336 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
337 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
338 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
339 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
340
3416.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
342 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
343 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
344 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
345 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
346 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
347 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
348 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
349 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
350 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
351 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.
352
5dca256e
RGS
3536.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
354 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
355 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
356 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
357
3586.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
359 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
360 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
361 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
362 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
363 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
364 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
365
3666.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
367 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
368 installing some Tk modules.
369
3706.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
371 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
372 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
373
3746.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
375 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
376 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
377 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
378
3796.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
380 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
381 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
382 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
383 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
384 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
385 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
386 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
387 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
388 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 389 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 390 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
391 [Greg Matheson]
392 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
393 [Slaven Rezic]
394 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
395 [Slaven Rezic]
396 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
397 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
398 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
399 [Ilya Zakharevich]
400 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
401 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
402 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
403 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
404 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
405 Module::Build instead.
406 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
407 VMS. [rt 4675]
408 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
409 existing uses.
410 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
411 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
412 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
413 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
414 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
415 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
416 [rt 4687]
417 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
418 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
419 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
420 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
421 VMS. [rt 4676]
422 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
423 [rt 5633]

03c94fc2 426 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
427 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
428 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
429 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
430 for backwards compatibility.
431 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
432 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

4346.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
435 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
436 take a more conservative approach.
437 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
438 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
439 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
440 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
441 nmake [rt 4285 4301]

4436.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
444 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
445 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
446 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
447 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
448 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
449 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
450
4516.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
452 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
453 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
454 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
455 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
456 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
457 Perls.
458 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
459 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
460 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
461 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
462 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
463 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
464 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
465 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
466 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
467 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
468 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
469 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
470 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
471 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
472 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
473 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
474 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
475 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
476 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
477 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
478 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
479 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
480 November and nobody noticed.
481 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
482 by the user.
483 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
484 * Documented UNINST=1

487 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
488 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
489 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
490 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
491 (Orton Yves)
492 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
493 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
494 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
495 ndbgperl.exe.
496 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

4986.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
499 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
500 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
501 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
502 [Sreeji K Das]
503 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
504 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
505 bleadperl@20530)
506 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
507 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

510 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
511 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
512
5136.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
514 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
515 itself and the metafile documentation.
516 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
517 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
518 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
519 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
520 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
521 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

530 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
531 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
532 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
533 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
534 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
535 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
536 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
537 to INST_*.
538 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
539 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
540 really bizarre way.
541
5426.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
543 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
544 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
545 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
546 * Noting where to find make in the README
547 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
548 on Windows.

5506.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
551 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
552 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
553 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
554 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
555 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
556 This appears to be a rather old bug.
557 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
558 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
559 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
560 of prepending a .. onto it.
561 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
562 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
563 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
564 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
565 repeating the list all over the code.
566 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
567 with DESTDIR set.
568 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
569 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
570 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
571 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
572 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
573 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
574 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
575 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
576 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
577 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
578 when it didn't.
579
5806.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
581 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
582 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
583 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
584 to using multiple -e's.
585 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
586 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
587 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
588 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
589 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
590 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
591 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
592 $(ECHO).
593 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

5956.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
596 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
597 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
598 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
599 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
600 the basic.t test on Windows.

603 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
604 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
605 alter your manifest.
606 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
607 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
608 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
609 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
610 around 6.06_01.
611 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
612 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
613 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
614 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
615 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)

620 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
621 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
622 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
623 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
624 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
625 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
626 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
627 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
628 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
629 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
630 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
631 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
632 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
633 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
634 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
635 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
636 sometimes don't get installed.
637 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
638 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
639 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
640 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
641
6426.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
643 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
644 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
645 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
646 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
647 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
648 Fixed.
649 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
650 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
651 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
652 (Stas Bekman)
653 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
654 (Craig Berry)
655 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
656 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
657 miserably.
658 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
659
6606.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
661 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
662 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
663 Just on OS/2.
664
6656.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
666 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
667 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
668 to skip installing a file.
669 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
670 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
671 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
672 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
673 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
674 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
675 removed. No longer relevent.
676 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
677 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
678 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
679 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
680 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
681 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
682 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
683 properly before. (Craig Berry)
684 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
685 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
686 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
687 reading.
688 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
689 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
690 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
691 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
692 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)

698 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
699 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
700 warning because of this.
701 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
702 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
703 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
704 Worked around.
705 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
706 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
707
7086.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
709 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
710 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
711 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
712 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
713 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
714 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
715 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
716 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
717 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
718 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
719 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
720 Missing since 5.6.1.
721 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
722 command line lengths.
723 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
724 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
725 eof() not honor tied handles.
726 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
727 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
728
7296.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
730 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
731 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
732 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
733 to think modules weren't installed.
734 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
735 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
736 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
737 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
738 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
739 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
740 warn_if_old_packlist().
741 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
742 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
743 in the first place.
744 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
745 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
746 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
747 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
748 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
749 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
750 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
751 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
752 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
753 expansion
754 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
755 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
756 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
757 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
758 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
759 MakeMaker.
760 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
761 - Added compile & POD test
762 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
763 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
764 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
765 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
766 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
767 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
768 [perl #21526]
769
7706.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
771 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
772 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
773 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
774 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
775 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
776 fixpath() work again.
777
7786.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
779 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
780 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
781 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
782 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
783 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
784 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
785 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
786 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
787 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
788 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
789 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
790 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
791 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
792 using that.
793 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
794 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
795 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
796 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
797 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
798 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
799 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
800 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
801 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
802 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
803 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
804 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
805 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
806 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
807 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
808 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
809 by default.
810 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
811 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
812 - Improved DISTNAME docs
813 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
814 * Documented dist()
815 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
816 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
817 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
818 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
819 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
820 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
821 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
822 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to

824 of the clean target.
825 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
826 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
827 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid

873 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
874 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.

876 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
877 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
878 Everything else was redundant.
879
880 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
881 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
882 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
883 into init_linker().

895 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
896 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
897 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
898 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
899 is explicitly set to empty.
900 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
901 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
902 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
903 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
904 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
905 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
906 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
907 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
908 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
909 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
910 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
911 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
912 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
913 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.

921 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
922 commands.
923 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
924 be pointless.
925 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
926 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants

948 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
949 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
950 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
951 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
952 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
953 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod

1253 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
1254 see how its useful outside the core.
1255
1256 [[ New Features ]]
1257 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
1258 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
1259 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
1260 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
1261 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
1262
1263 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1264 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
1265 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
1266 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
1267 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
1268 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
1269 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
1270
1271 [[ Doc Changes ]]
1272 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
1273 reflecting its odd behavior.
1274 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
1275 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
1276 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
1277
1278 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
1279 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
1280 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
1281 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
1282 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
1283 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
1284 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
1285 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
1286 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
1287 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
1288
12895.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
1290 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
1291 chdir without breaking @INC.
1292 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
1293 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
1294 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
1295 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
1296 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
1297 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
1298
1299 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
1300 change.
1301 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
1302 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
1303 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
1304 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
1305 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
1306 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
1307 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
1308 backporting
1309 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
1310 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
1311 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1312 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1313 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1314 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1315 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1316 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1317 explicitly required MM_Unix.
1318 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
1319 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1320 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1321 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
1322 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
1323 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
1324 to EU::MM.
1325 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
1326
13275.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002

MS
1331 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
1332 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
1333 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
1334 No longer obsolete
1335 - Little test fixes

13375.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
1338 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
1339 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
1340 work on Win32/5.6.1.
1341 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
1342 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
1343 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
1344 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
1345 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
1346 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
1347
13485.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
1349 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

1352 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
1353 * Backported to 5.6.1
1354 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
1355 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
1356 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
1357 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
