2 Test Improvements
3 - Added a test for a basic XS build.
4
5 Bug Fixes
6 - A refactoring in 6.37_01 broke XS compilation.
7
86.37_01 Sun Nov 25 17:05:53 PST 2007
9 Improvements
10 - Upgraded the META.yml to version 1.3 of the spec (which really
11 doesn't change anything). Thanks bdfoy.
12 - MakeMaker now always includes the required 'author' field in
13 the META.yml even if it's undef to comply with the META.yml spec.
14 - Updated ExtUtils-Install to latest version (1.44)
15 - Unified the version numbers of all modules.
16
17 Test Fixes
18 - cd() test on VMS used non-native paths. [bleadperl 31534]
19 - Removed uses of "no_plan" in tests to remain compatible with
20 old versions of Test::Harness.
21 - writemakefile_args.t had the wrong test count if version.pm isn't
22 installed.
23
24 Bug Fixes
25 - $VERSION detection code would be confused by "sub version"
26 [rt.cpan.org 30747]
27 - LINKTYPE=static will now be propagated to child builds.
28 [bleadperl 31761]
29
30 Portability Fixes
31 - Add "dragonfly" to the list of BSDish operating systems
32 - BSD detection code would not pick up bsdos or internix
33 - Fix detection of shared libperl on NetBSD [bleadperl 31526]
34
35
366.36 Tue Jul 3 01:06:40 PDT 2007
37 Test Fixes
38 - version.pm prior to 0.7203 caused Foo->VERSION to reformat
39 $Foo::VERSION. This caused prereq.t to fail.
40
416.35 Sun Jul 1 20:53:38 PDT 2007
42 New Features
43 * MakeMaker will now try to "use version" before parsing $VERSION.
44 This allows "$VERSION = qv(1.2.3)" to work.
45
46 Test Fixes
47 - writemakefile_args.t now works with older versions of version.pm
48
496.34 Sat Jun 30 11:06:54 CDT 2007
50 Test Fixes
51 - Accidentally hard coded the version of strict.pm [rt.cpan.org 27838]
52
536.33 Fri Jun 29 17:15:34 CDT 2007
54 New Features
55 * VERSION now accepts version objects without warning.
56 [rt.cpan.org 26075]
57
58 Bug Fixes
59 - Properly not installing MANIFEST.SKIP when ExtUtils::Manifest is not
60 being installed. [rt.cpan.org 21318]
61 - fixin() no longer clobbers $/ [rt.cpan.org 26234]
62 - Fixed bug finding cross-compiled perls [bleadperl 31404]
63 - Looking up to 8 levels up to find uninstalled perls
64 [bleadperl 30932]
65 * A test failure in a sub-project would not cause "make test" to
66 fail. [rt.cpan.org 27804]
67
68 Windows
69 - Embed manifest files in EXEs and DLLs when building with VC++ 8.x
70 [bleadperl #29266] [rt.cpan.org 26208]
71 - Improved the subdir command code so DIR can do more than one level
72 down. [rt.cpan.org 25180]
73 - Fix static builds on Win32 by using -DPERLDLL [bleadperl 31229]
74
75 VMS
76 - Use linker flags rather than compiler flags to determine if the
77 perl sharable image was linked debug. This keeps OPTIMIZE from
78 confusing things. [rt.cpan.org 25268]
79 - Accidental use of $\ in a regex. [bleadperl 30521]
80
81 BSD
82 - If calling perl causes MakeMaker to emit warnings, then it
83 cannot find the location of its binary. [rt.cpan.org 23178]
84
85 Doc Improvements
86 - Typo fixes. $(TOUNIX) -> $(TO_UNIX). [rt.cpan.org 23495]
87 - The example for setting $VERSION from $Revision$ in SVN was
88 incorrect. (Thanks to ROBERTMAY@cpan.org) [rt.cpan.org 26995]
89 - Document what's wrong with PREFIX and what to use instead.
90 [rt.cpan.org 12919]
91 - Improve the PREREQ_FATAL docs to make it really clear that you
92 do NOT want to use this!
93
94 Misc
95 - Provide information during the install about whether we're using the
96 installed or provided dependency (ie. ExtUtils::Command).
97 - Updated included versions of ExtUtils::Manifest and Command.
98 - Add .bak and .old to veryclean [rt.cpan.org 21284]
99 - Improved the PREREQ_FATAL message.
100
1016.32 Wed Feb 21 07:59:57 PST 2007
102 New Features
103 - WriteEmptyMakefile() is now exportable upon request.
104
105 Bug Fixes
106 - Set binmode() when writing to files in Command.t for operating
107 systems which need that sort of thing. [bleadperl #29578]
108 - Fixed a minor duplication in manifypod_target(). [rt.cpan.org 22149]
109
110 Test Fixes
111 - The build_man.t test would fail if your Perl is configured to not
112 generate man pages ($Config{installman3dir} is set to none).
113
114 Doc Improvements
115 - Made the home dir install examples a little more friendly to non-Unix
116 folks.
117
118 Misc
119 - miniperl no longer has the Win32 functions.
120 - Turn on "use strict" where it was missing.
121

SP
1226.31 Mon Oct 9 16:54:47 PDT 2006
123 - Update our META.yml to version 1.2 of the spec.
124 * Update the SEE ALSO to mention Module::Build, Module::Install,
125 ExtUtils::ModuleMaker and Module::Starter.
126 - Fix ARCHITECTURE tag in PPD generation for 5.8 (patch taken from
127 ActiveState 819). [rt.cpan.org 20566]
128 * Bring ExtUtils::Manifest up to 1.48
129

RGS
1306.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
131 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
132 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
133 replaced with something better next version.
134 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
135 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
136 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
137 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
138 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
139 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
140 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
141 same place?"
142 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
143 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
144
1456.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
146 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
147
1486.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
149 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
150 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
151 empty.
152 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
153 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
154 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
155 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
156 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
157 - $Revision was broken.
158 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
159 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
160 - Clarified that test_f() exits.
161

1626.30_01 Tue Aug 16 23:53:27 PDT 2005
163 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
164 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
165 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
166 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
167 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
168 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
169 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
170 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
171 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
172 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
173 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
174 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
175 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
176 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
177 version.
178 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
179 text to the generated META.yml.
180 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
181 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
182 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
183 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
184 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
185 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
186 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
187 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
188 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
189 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
190 dmake or nmake.
191

RGS
1926.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
193 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
194 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
195 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
196 Test::Harness.
197
41e5fcb0
RGS
1986.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
199 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
200 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
201 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
202 modules.
203 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
204 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
205

RGS
2066.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
207 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
208 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
209 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
210 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
211 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
212 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
213 (bleadperl@24185)
214 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
215
7292dc67
RGS
2166.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
217 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
218 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
219
2206.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
221 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
222 passed the file they were to generate.
223 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
224 now documented.
225 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
226
2276.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
228
2296.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
230 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
231 version is found.
232 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
233
2346.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
235 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
236 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
237 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
238
2396.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
240 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
241 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
242 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
243 previous alpha releases.
244
2456.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
246 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
247 and better.
248 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
249 now possible.
250
2516.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
252 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
253 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
254 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
255 XSUBPP alone.
256 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
257 make commands too long on VMS.
258 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
259 .exists files everywhere.
260 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
261 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
262 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
263 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
264 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
265 Module::Install
266
2676.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
268 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
269 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
270 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
271 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
272 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
273
2746.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
275 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
276 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
277 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
278 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
279 it yet. I'll do that next release.
280
2816.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
282 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
283 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
284 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
285 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
286 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
287
2886.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
289 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
290
2916.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
292 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
293 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
294 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
295 things like SVN's perl bindings.
296
2976.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
298 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
299 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
300 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
301 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
302 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
303 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
304 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
305 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
306 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
307 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
308
3096.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
310 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
311 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
312 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
313 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
314 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
315 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
316 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
317 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
318 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
319 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.
320
5dca256e
RGS
3216.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
322 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
323 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
324 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
325
3266.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
327 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
328 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
329 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
330 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
331 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
332 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
333
3346.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
335 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
336 installing some Tk modules.
337
3386.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
339 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
340 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
341
3426.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
343 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
344 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
345 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
346
3476.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
348 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
349 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
350 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
351 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
352 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
353 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
354 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
355 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
356 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 357 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 358 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
359 [Greg Matheson]
360 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
361 [Slaven Rezic]
362 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
363 [Slaven Rezic]
364 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
365 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
366 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
367 [Ilya Zakharevich]
368 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
369 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
370 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
371 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
372 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
373 Module::Build instead.
374 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
375 VMS. [rt 4675]
376 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
377 existing uses.
378 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
379 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
380 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
381 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
382 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
383 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
384 [rt 4687]
385 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
386 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
387 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
388 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
389 VMS. [rt 4676]
390 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
391 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 392
af7522e5 3936.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 394 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
395 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
396 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
397 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
398 for backwards compatibility.
399 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
400 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.
401

RGS
4026.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
403 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
404 take a more conservative approach.
405 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
406 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
407 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
408 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
409 nmake [rt 4285 4301]
410
a7d1454b
RGS
4116.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
412 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
413 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
414 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
415 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
416 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
417 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
418

420 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
421 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
422 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
423 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
424 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
425 Perls.
426 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
427 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
428 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
429 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
430 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
431 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
432 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
433 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
434 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
435 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
436 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
437 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
438 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
439 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
440 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
441 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
442 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
443 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
444 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
445 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
446 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
447 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
448 November and nobody noticed.
449 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
450 by the user.
451 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
452 * Documented UNINST=1

455 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
456 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
457 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
458 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
459 (Orton Yves)
460 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
461 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
462 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
463 ndbgperl.exe.
464 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

4666.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
467 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
468 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
469 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
470 [Sreeji K Das]
471 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
472 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
473 bleadperl@20530)
474 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
475 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

478 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
479 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
480
4816.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
482 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
483 itself and the metafile documentation.
484 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
485 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
486 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
487 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
488 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
489 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

498 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
499 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
500 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
501 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
502 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
503 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
504 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
505 to INST_*.
506 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
507 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
508 really bizarre way.
509
5106.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
511 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
512 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
513 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
514 * Noting where to find make in the README
515 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
516 on Windows.

5186.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
519 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
520 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
521 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
522 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
523 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
524 This appears to be a rather old bug.
525 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
526 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
527 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
528 of prepending a .. onto it.
529 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
530 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
531 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
532 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
533 repeating the list all over the code.
534 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
535 with DESTDIR set.
536 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
537 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
538 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
539 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
540 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
541 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
542 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
543 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
544 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
545 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
546 when it didn't.
547
5486.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
549 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
550 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
551 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
552 to using multiple -e's.
553 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
554 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
555 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
556 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
557 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
558 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
559 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
560 $(ECHO).
561 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

5636.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
564 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
565 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
566 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
567 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
568 the basic.t test on Windows.

5706.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
571 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
572 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
573 alter your manifest.
574 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
575 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
576 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
577 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
578 around 6.06_01.
579 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
580 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
581 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
582 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
583 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
584 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
585 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

5876.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
588 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
589 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
590 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
591 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
592 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
593 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
594 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
595 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
596 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
597 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
598 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
599 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
600 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
601 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
602 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
603 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
604 sometimes don't get installed.
605 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
606 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
607 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
608 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
609
6106.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
611 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
612 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
613 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
614 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
615 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
616 Fixed.
617 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
618 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
619 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
620 (Stas Bekman)
621 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
622 (Craig Berry)
623 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
624 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
625 miserably.
626 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
627
6286.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
629 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
630 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
631 Just on OS/2.
632
6336.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
634 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
635 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
636 to skip installing a file.
637 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
638 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
639 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
640 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
641 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
642 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
643 removed. No longer relevent.
644 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
645 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
646 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
647 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
648 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
649 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
650 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
651 properly before. (Craig Berry)
652 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
653 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
654 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
655 reading.
656 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
657 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
658 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
659 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
660 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)

662# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
663# so much change between 6.05 and now.

666 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
667 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
668 warning because of this.
669 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
670 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
671 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
672 Worked around.
673 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
674 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
675
6766.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
677 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
678 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
679 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
680 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
681 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
682 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
683 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
684 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
685 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
686 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
687 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
688 Missing since 5.6.1.
689 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
690 command line lengths.
691 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
692 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
693 eof() not honor tied handles.
694 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
695 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
696
6976.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
698 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
699 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
700 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
701 to think modules weren't installed.
702 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
703 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
704 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
705 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
706 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
707 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
708 warn_if_old_packlist().
709 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
710 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
711 in the first place.
712 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
713 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
714 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
715 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
716 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
717 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
718 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
719 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
720 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
721 expansion
722 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
723 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
724 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
725 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
726 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
727 MakeMaker.
728 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
729 - Added compile & POD test
730 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
731 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
732 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
733 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
734 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
735 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
736 [perl #21526]
737
7386.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
739 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
740 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
741 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
742 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
743 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
744 fixpath() work again.
745
7466.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
747 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
748 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
749 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
750 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
751 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
752 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
753 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
754 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
755 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
756 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
757 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
758 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
759 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
760 using that.
761 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
762 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
763 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
764 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
765 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
766 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
767 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
768 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
769 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
770 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
771 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
772 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
773 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
774 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
775 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
776 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
777 by default.
778 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
779 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
780 - Improved DISTNAME docs
781 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
782 * Documented dist()
783 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
784 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
785 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
786 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
787 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
788 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
789 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
790 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
791 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
792 of the clean target.
793 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
794 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
795 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
796 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
797 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
798 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
799 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
800 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
801 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
802 target.
803 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
804 they come first.
805 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
806 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
807 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
808 init_platform().
809 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
810 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
811 init_VERSION().
812 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
813 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
814
815 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
816 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
817 init_others() to init_platform()
818 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
819 init_platform()
820 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
821 constants() to init_platform()
822
823 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
824 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
825 Added MM_REVISION for completeness

840 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
841 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.

845 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
846 Everything else was redundant.
847
848 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
849 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
850 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
851 into init_linker().
852 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
853 MM_VMS_VERSION.
854 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
855 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
856 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
857 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
858 overrides.
859 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
860 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
861 unportable part of the realclean target.
862 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
863 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
864 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
865 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
866 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
867 is explicitly set to empty.
868 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
869 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
870 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
871 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
872 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
873 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
874 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
875 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
876 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
877 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}

879 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
880 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
881 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
882 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
883 - Adding an explicit LICENSE

885 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
886 dont_execute arguments.
887 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
888 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
889 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
890 commands.
891 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
892 be pointless.
893 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
894 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
895 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
896 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.

916 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
917 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
918 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
919 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
920 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
921 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
922 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ

1258 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
1259 chdir without breaking @INC.
1260 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
1261 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
1262 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
1263 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
1264 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
1265 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
1266
1267 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
1268 change.
1269 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
1270 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
1271 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
1272 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
1273 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
1274 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
1275 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
1276 backporting
1277 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
1278 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
1279 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1280 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1281 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1282 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1283 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1284 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1285 explicitly required MM_Unix.
1286 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
1287 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1288 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1289 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
1290 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
1291 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
1292 to EU::MM.
1293 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.

1297 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 1298 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.

1299 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
1300 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
1301 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
1302 No longer obsolete
1303 - Little test fixes

13055.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
1306 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
1307 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
1308 work on Win32/5.6.1.
1309 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
1310 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
1311 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
1312 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
1313 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
1314 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
1315
13165.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
1317 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

1320 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
1321 * Backported to 5.6.1
1322 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
1323 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
1324 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
1325 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
