NC
3 - Added 'gnu' and 'gnukfreebsd' as Unix variants. [Niko Tyni]
4
5 - Brought in some VMS fixes from bleadperl: "Correct and complete
6 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
7 [Craig Berry]

11 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
12 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
13
14 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
15 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
16
170.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
18
19 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
20 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
21 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
22 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
23
24 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
25 ignored. [Robert May]
26
270.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007

29 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
30 as part of the perl core.
31
32 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
33 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
34
35 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
36 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
37 Steve Peters]

41 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
42 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
43 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
44
45 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
46 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
47
480.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
49
50 - Various OS/2 fixes:
51 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
52 + Got library-file building working better
53 + Handled libperl_overrides better
54 [Ilya Zakharevich]
55
56 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
57 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
58
59 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
60 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
61
62 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
63 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
64 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
65 command line. [Randy W. Sims]

69 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
70 E. Malmberg]
71

RGS
720.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
73
74 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
75 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
76 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
77 Sims]
78
79 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
80 John E. Malmberg]
81
820.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
83
84 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
85 Scott-Thoennes]
86
87 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
88 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
89 A. Berry]
90
91 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
92 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
93 Scott-Thoennes]
94
950.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
96
97 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
98 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
99 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
100 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
101 Zakharevich]
102
103 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
104 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
105
106 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
107 platform-independant way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
108 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
109
1100.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
111
112 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
113 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
114 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
115 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
116 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
117 E. Malmberg]
118
1190.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
120
121 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
122 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
123 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
124
1250.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
126
127 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
128 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
129 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
130 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
131 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
132 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
133 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
134
135 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
136 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
137 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
138 [Curt Tilmes]
139
140 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
141 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
142 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
143
144 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
145 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
146 Scott-Thoennes]
147
1480.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
149
150 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
151 Salzenberg]
152
1530.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
154
155 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
156 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
157 where they're very different.
158
159 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
160 Peter Prymmer]
161
1620.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
163
164 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
165 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
166 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
167 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
168 executables.
169
1700.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
171
172 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
173 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
174
1750.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
176
177 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
178 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
179 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
180 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
181
182 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
183 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
184 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
185 and so on. [Randy Sims]
186
187 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
188 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
189 compile(). [Randy Sims]
190
1910.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
192
193 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
194 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
195 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
196
1970.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
198
199 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
200 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
201 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
202
203 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
204
2050.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
206
207 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
208 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
209 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
210
211
2120.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
213
214 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
215 should be quoted.
216
217 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
218
219
2200.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
221
222 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
223 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
224
225 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
226 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
227 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
228
229
2300.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
231
232 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
233 patching help from Randy Sims.
