66.45_02 Sun Sep 7 13:59:14 PDT 2008
7 Bug Fixes
8 - Updated bundled ExtUtils::Command to 1.14, ExtUtils::Install to
9 1.50 and ExtUtils::Manifest to 1.54
10
11 Test Fixes
12 - t/writemakefile_args.t had the wrong skip amoung causing failures
13 when run without version.pm (mostly 5.6 users)

166.45_01 Sat Sep 6 03:19:03 PDT 2008
17 New Features
18 * META_ADD and META_MERGE have been added to manipulate the META.yml.
19 Thanks to Adriano Ferreira. [rt.cpan.org 21282]
20 - META.yml now includes configure_requires ExtUtils::MakeMaker by
21 default. [rt.cpan.org 32337]
22 - META.yml now excludes t/ and inc/ from indexing by default.
23 - META.yml license is now "unknown" instead of undef if a LICENSE is not
24 given.
25 - META.yml now conforms to version 1.4 of the spec.
26
27 Bug Fixes
28 - Make @MM_Sections and @Overridable global again. It's an undocumented
29 but used way to manipulate MakeMaker behavior. [rt.cpan.org 36047]
30
31 Portability
32 * Changed the name/dmake test in MM_Win32.pm to use regexs to that
33 they are able to handle Perl on a Stick absolute paths.
34
35
366.44 Thu Feb 28 16:06:04 PST 2008
37 Bug Fixes
38 * Updated bundled ExtUtils::Install to 1.45 which should fix some
39 Cygwin issues. [rt.cpan.org 33291]

426.43_01 Tue Jan 1 16:06:47 PST 2008
43 Bug Fixes
44 * Change the "is this really a Perl core library directory" checks to
45 look for strict instead of Exporter. Now that Exporter is on CPAN
46 it can wind up in site_perl.
47 * split_command() will now set aside a little more space for macro
48 expansion. This should help on systems with cramped command line
49 lengths. Specifically, Pugs on Win32. [rt.cpan.org 20145]
50
51 Installation
52 * MakeMaker would not install if the installed MakeMaker was too old,
53 like on 5.6.1. The installation process was still using the
54 installed MakeMaker in a few places. This has been fixed.
55 [rt.cpan.org 24746]
56
57 OS X
58 * "make dist" will no longer bundle up resource fork files (._foo).
59 [rt.cpan.org 29525]
60
61 Docs
62 * The documentation of VERSION_FROM was recommending vstrings (1.2.3)
63 which have never worked right.
64 * The documentation for the accepted values of LICENSE moved to
65 Module::Build::API. [rt.cpan.org 32020]
66
67 Tests
68 * The compilation test was testing the installed modules, not the
69 about-to-be-installed.
70 * xs.t would fail if ExtUtils::CBuilder was not installed.
71
72 Misc
73 * Cleanups brought to you by no more 5.5 compatibility!
74 * MakeMaker is now perlcritic clean at severity level 5... except
75 the really silly ones.
76 * DIE use vars DIE!
77 * Added some resources to the META.yml

796.42 Fri Dec 7 17:00:14 PST 2007
80 Bug Fixes
81 - 6.33 moved PREREQ_FATAL to happen after CONFIGURE. This meant if
82 your CONFIGURE use a prereq it would fail and no PREREQ_FATAL
83 message would be displayed.
84 - Put the "nicetext" functionality back, VMS needs it to deal with
85 other people's custom make. But rename it to the more
86 accurate maketext_filter(), test it and fix a bug where it would
87 stop processing if it saw a macro declaration.

896.40 Thu Dec 6 03:00:47 PST 2007
90 Bug Fixes
91 - Remove the dubious nicetext() Makefile formatting hack to account for
92 a lack of space between the target and colon needed on VMS. This
93 interfered with META.yml creation on VMS and possibly other output.
94 - Fix the remaining targets which don't have a space between the target
95 and the colon.

1006.37_03 Mon Nov 26 14:15:34 PST 2007
101 Tests
102 - parse_version.t had wrong test count when version.pm isn't installed.
103 - Fixed some warnings in the XS module we're using for testing.
104 - "our $VERSION" test in parse_version.t was never running
105 - Quoting uses of 1.2.3 style versions in parse_version.t to protect
106 older perls.
107
108 Portability
109 - Moved the minimum required version up to 5.6.0.

RGS
1116.37_02 Sun Nov 25 23:33:14 PST 2007
112 Test Improvements
113 - Added a test for a basic XS build.
114
115 Bug Fixes
116 - A refactoring in 6.37_01 broke XS compilation.
117
1186.37_01 Sun Nov 25 17:05:53 PST 2007
119 Improvements
120 - Upgraded the META.yml to version 1.3 of the spec (which really
121 doesn't change anything). Thanks bdfoy.
122 - MakeMaker now always includes the required 'author' field in
123 the META.yml even if it's undef to comply with the META.yml spec.
124 - Updated ExtUtils-Install to latest version (1.44)
125 - Unified the version numbers of all modules.
126
127 Test Fixes
128 - cd() test on VMS used non-native paths. [bleadperl 31534]
129 - Removed uses of "no_plan" in tests to remain compatible with
130 old versions of Test::Harness.
131 - writemakefile_args.t had the wrong test count if version.pm isn't
132 installed.
133
134 Bug Fixes
135 - $VERSION detection code would be confused by "sub version"
136 [rt.cpan.org 30747]
137 - LINKTYPE=static will now be propagated to child builds.
138 [bleadperl 31761]
139
140 Portability Fixes
141 - Add "dragonfly" to the list of BSDish operating systems
142 - BSD detection code would not pick up bsdos or internix
143 - Fix detection of shared libperl on NetBSD [bleadperl 31526]
144
145
1466.36 Tue Jul 3 01:06:40 PDT 2007
147 Test Fixes
148 - version.pm prior to 0.7203 caused Foo->VERSION to reformat
149 $Foo::VERSION. This caused prereq.t to fail.
150
1516.35 Sun Jul 1 20:53:38 PDT 2007
152 New Features
153 * MakeMaker will now try to "use version" before parsing $VERSION.
154 This allows "$VERSION = qv(1.2.3)" to work.
155
156 Test Fixes
157 - writemakefile_args.t now works with older versions of version.pm
158
1596.34 Sat Jun 30 11:06:54 CDT 2007
160 Test Fixes
161 - Accidentally hard coded the version of strict.pm [rt.cpan.org 27838]
162
1636.33 Fri Jun 29 17:15:34 CDT 2007
164 New Features
165 * VERSION now accepts version objects without warning.
166 [rt.cpan.org 26075]
167
168 Bug Fixes
169 - Properly not installing MANIFEST.SKIP when ExtUtils::Manifest is not
170 being installed. [rt.cpan.org 21318]
171 - fixin() no longer clobbers $/ [rt.cpan.org 26234]
172 - Fixed bug finding cross-compiled perls [bleadperl 31404]
173 - Looking up to 8 levels up to find uninstalled perls
174 [bleadperl 30932]
175 * A test failure in a sub-project would not cause "make test" to
176 fail. [rt.cpan.org 27804]
177
178 Windows
179 - Embed manifest files in EXEs and DLLs when building with VC++ 8.x
180 [bleadperl #29266] [rt.cpan.org 26208]
181 - Improved the subdir command code so DIR can do more than one level
182 down. [rt.cpan.org 25180]
183 - Fix static builds on Win32 by using -DPERLDLL [bleadperl 31229]
184
185 VMS
186 - Use linker flags rather than compiler flags to determine if the
187 perl sharable image was linked debug. This keeps OPTIMIZE from
188 confusing things. [rt.cpan.org 25268]
189 - Accidental use of $\ in a regex. [bleadperl 30521]
190
191 BSD
192 - If calling perl causes MakeMaker to emit warnings, then it
193 cannot find the location of its binary. [rt.cpan.org 23178]
194
195 Doc Improvements
196 - Typo fixes. $(TOUNIX) -> $(TO_UNIX). [rt.cpan.org 23495]
197 - The example for setting $VERSION from $Revision$ in SVN was
198 incorrect. (Thanks to ROBERTMAY@cpan.org) [rt.cpan.org 26995]
199 - Document what's wrong with PREFIX and what to use instead.
200 [rt.cpan.org 12919]
201 - Improve the PREREQ_FATAL docs to make it really clear that you
202 do NOT want to use this!
203
204 Misc
205 - Provide information during the install about whether we're using the
206 installed or provided dependency (ie. ExtUtils::Command).
207 - Updated included versions of ExtUtils::Manifest and Command.
208 - Add .bak and .old to veryclean [rt.cpan.org 21284]
209 - Improved the PREREQ_FATAL message.
210
2116.32 Wed Feb 21 07:59:57 PST 2007
212 New Features
213 - WriteEmptyMakefile() is now exportable upon request.
214
215 Bug Fixes
216 - Set binmode() when writing to files in Command.t for operating
217 systems which need that sort of thing. [bleadperl #29578]
218 - Fixed a minor duplication in manifypod_target(). [rt.cpan.org 22149]
219
220 Test Fixes
221 - The build_man.t test would fail if your Perl is configured to not
222 generate man pages ($Config{installman3dir} is set to none).
223
224 Doc Improvements
225 - Made the home dir install examples a little more friendly to non-Unix
226 folks.
227
228 Misc
229 - miniperl no longer has the Win32 functions.
230 - Turn on "use strict" where it was missing.
231

SP
2326.31 Mon Oct 9 16:54:47 PDT 2006
233 - Update our META.yml to version 1.2 of the spec.
234 * Update the SEE ALSO to mention Module::Build, Module::Install,
235 ExtUtils::ModuleMaker and Module::Starter.
236 - Fix ARCHITECTURE tag in PPD generation for 5.8 (patch taken from
237 ActiveState 819). [rt.cpan.org 20566]
238 * Bring ExtUtils::Manifest up to 1.48
239
58d32538
RGS
2406.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
241 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
242 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
243 replaced with something better next version.
244 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
245 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
246 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
247 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
248 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
249 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
250 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
251 same place?"
252 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
253 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
254
2556.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
256 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
257
2586.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
259 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
260 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
261 empty.
262 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
263 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
264 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
265 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
266 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
267 - $Revision was broken.
268 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
269 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
270 - Clarified that test_f() exits.

2726.30_01 Tue Aug 16 23:53:27 PDT 2005
273 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
274 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
275 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
276 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
277 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
278 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
279 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
280 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
281 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
282 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
283 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
284 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
285 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
286 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
287 version.
288 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
289 text to the generated META.yml.
290 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
291 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
292 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
293 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
294 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
295 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
296 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
297 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
298 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
299 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
300 dmake or nmake.

3026.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
303 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
304 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
305 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
306 Test::Harness.
307
41e5fcb0
RGS
3086.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
309 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
310 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
311 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
312 modules.
313 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
314 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
315

RGS
3166.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
317 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
318 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
319 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
320 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
321 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
322 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
323 (bleadperl@24185)
324 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
325
7292dc67
RGS
3266.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
327 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
328 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
329
3306.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
331 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
332 passed the file they were to generate.
333 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
334 now documented.
335 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
336
3376.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
338
3396.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
340 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
341 version is found.
342 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
343
3446.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
345 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
346 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
347 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
348
3496.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
350 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
351 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
352 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
353 previous alpha releases.
354
3556.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
356 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
357 and better.
358 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
359 now possible.
360
3616.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
362 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
363 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
364 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
365 XSUBPP alone.
366 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
367 make commands too long on VMS.
368 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
369 .exists files everywhere.
370 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
371 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
372 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
373 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
374 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
375 Module::Install
376
3776.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
378 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
379 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
380 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
381 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
382 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
383
3846.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
385 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
386 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
387 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
388 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
389 it yet. I'll do that next release.
390
3916.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
392 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
393 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
394 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
395 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
396 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
397
3986.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
399 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
400
4016.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
402 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
403 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
404 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
405 things like SVN's perl bindings.
406
4076.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
408 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
409 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
410 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
411 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
412 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
413 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
414 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
415 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
416 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
417 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
418
4196.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
420 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
421 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
422 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
423 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
424 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
425 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
426 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
427 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
428 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
429 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.
430

RGS
4316.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
432 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
433 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
434 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
435
4366.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
437 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
438 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
439 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
440 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
441 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
442 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
443
4446.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
445 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
446 installing some Tk modules.
447
4486.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
449 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
450 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.

453 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
454 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
455 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
456
4576.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
458 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
459 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
460 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
461 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
462 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
463 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
464 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.

465 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
466 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 467 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 468 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.

470 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
471 [Slaven Rezic]
472 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
473 [Slaven Rezic]
474 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
475 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
476 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
477 [Ilya Zakharevich]
478 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
479 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
480 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
481 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
482 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
483 Module::Build instead.
484 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
485 VMS. [rt 4675]
486 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
487 existing uses.
488 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
489 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
490 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
491 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
492 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
493 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
494 [rt 4687]
495 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
496 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
497 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
498 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
499 VMS. [rt 4676]
500 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
501 [rt 5633]

af7522e5 5036.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 504 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
505 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
506 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
507 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
508 for backwards compatibility.
509 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
510 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

513 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
514 take a more conservative approach.
515 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
516 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
517 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
518 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing

522 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
523 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
524 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
525 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
526 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
527 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
528
5296.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
530 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
531 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
532 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
533 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
534 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
535 Perls.
536 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
537 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
538 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
539 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
540 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
541 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
542 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
543 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
544 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
545 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
546 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
547 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
548 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
549 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
550 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
551 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
552 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
553 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
554 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
555 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
556 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
557 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
558 November and nobody noticed.
559 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
560 by the user.
561 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories

565 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
566 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
567 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
568 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
569 (Orton Yves)
570 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
571 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
572 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
573 ndbgperl.exe.
574 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

578 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
579 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
580 [Sreeji K Das]
581 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
582 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
583 bleadperl@20530)
584 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
585 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

588 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
589 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
590
5916.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
592 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
593 itself and the metafile documentation.
594 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
595 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
596 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
597 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
598 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
599 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

6076.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
608 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
609 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
610 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
611 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
612 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
613 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
614 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
615 to INST_*.
616 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
617 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
618 really bizarre way.
619
6206.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
621 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
622 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
623 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
624 * Noting where to find make in the README
625 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
626 on Windows.

6286.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
629 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
630 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
631 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
632 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
633 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
634 This appears to be a rather old bug.
635 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
636 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
637 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
638 of prepending a .. onto it.
639 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
640 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
641 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
642 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
643 repeating the list all over the code.
644 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
645 with DESTDIR set.
646 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
647 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
648 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
649 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
650 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
651 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
652 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
653 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
654 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
655 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
656 when it didn't.
657
6586.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
659 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
660 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
661 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
662 to using multiple -e's.
663 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
664 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
665 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
666 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
667 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
668 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
669 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to

675 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
676 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.

682 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
683 alter your manifest.
684 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
685 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
686 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
687 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
688 around 6.06_01.

698 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
699 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
700 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
701 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
702 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
703 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
704 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
705 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
706 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
707 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
708 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
709 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
710 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
711 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
712 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
713 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
714 sometimes don't get installed.
715 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
716 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
717 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
718 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
719
7206.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
721 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
722 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
723 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
724 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
725 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
726 Fixed.
727 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
728 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
729 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
730 (Stas Bekman)
731 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
732 (Craig Berry)
733 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
734 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
735 miserably.
736 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
737
7386.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
739 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
740 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
741 Just on OS/2.
742
7436.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
744 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
745 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
746 to skip installing a file.
747 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
748 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
749 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
750 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
751 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
752 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
753 removed. No longer relevent.
754 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
755 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
756 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
757 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
758 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
759 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
760 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
761 properly before. (Craig Berry)
762 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
763 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
764 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
765 reading.
766 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
767 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
768 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
769 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
770 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)

776 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
777 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
778 warning because of this.
779 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
780 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
781 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
782 Worked around.
783 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
784 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
785
7866.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
787 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
788 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
789 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
790 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
791 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
792 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
793 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
794 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
795 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
796 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
797 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
798 Missing since 5.6.1.
799 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
800 command line lengths.
801 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
802 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
803 eof() not honor tied handles.
804 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
805 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
806
8076.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
808 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
809 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
810 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
811 to think modules weren't installed.
812 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
813 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
814 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
815 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
816 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
817 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
818 warn_if_old_packlist().
819 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
820 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
821 in the first place.
822 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
823 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
824 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
825 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
826 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
827 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
828 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
829 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
830 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
831 expansion
832 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
833 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
834 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
835 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
836 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
837 MakeMaker.
838 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
839 - Added compile & POD test
840 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
841 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
842 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
843 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as

8566.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
857 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
858 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
859 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
860 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
861 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
862 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
863 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
864 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
865 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
866 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
867 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
868 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
869 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
870 using that.
871 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
872 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
873 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
874 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
875 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
876 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
877 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
878 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
879 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
880 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
881 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
882 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
883 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
884 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
885 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
886 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
887 by default.
888 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
889 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
890 - Improved DISTNAME docs
891 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
892 * Documented dist()
893 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
894 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
895 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
896 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
897 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
898 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
899 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
900 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
901 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
902 of the clean target.
903 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
904 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
905 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
906 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
907 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
908 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
909 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
910 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
911 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
912 target.
913 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
914 they come first.
915 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
916 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
917 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
918 init_platform().
919 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
920 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
921 init_VERSION().
922 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
923 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
924
925 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
926 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
927 init_others() to init_platform()
928 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
929 init_platform()
930 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
931 constants() to init_platform()
932
933 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
934 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
935 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
936 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
937 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
938 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
939 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
940 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
941 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
942
943 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
944 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
945 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
946 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
947 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
948 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
949 init_VERSION
950 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
951 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
952 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
953
954 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
955 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
956 Everything else was redundant.
957
958 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
959 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
960 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
961 into init_linker().
962 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
963 MM_VMS_VERSION.
964 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
965 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
966 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
967 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
968 overrides.
969 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
970 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
971 unportable part of the realclean target.
972 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
973 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
974 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
975 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
976 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
977 is explicitly set to empty.
978 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
979 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
980 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
981 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
982 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
983 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
984 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
985 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
986 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
987 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
988 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
989 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
990 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
991 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
992 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
993 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
994 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
995 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
996 dont_execute arguments.
997 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
998 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
999 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
1000 commands.
1001 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
1002 be pointless.
1003 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
1004 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
1005 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
1006 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
1007
10086.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
1009 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
1010 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
1011
10126.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
1013 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
1014 right.
1015 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
1016 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
1017 - Documented the LD flag.
1018 * Documented prompt()
1019 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
1020 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
1021 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
1022 (bleadperl 17488)

1025 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
1026 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
1027 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
1028 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
1029 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
1030 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
1031 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
1032 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
1033 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)

1266 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
1267 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
1268 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
1269 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
1270 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
1271 broke this. Fixed.
1272 * Fixing installing on VMS.

1275 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1276 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
1277 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
1278 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
1279 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
1280 Compensating for the bug.
1281 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
1282 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
1283
1284 [[ Doc Changes ]]
1285 - Expanding Known Good list
1286 - Adding Known Programs to README
1287
12885.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
1289 [[ API Changes ]]
1290 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
1291 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
1292 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
1293 not be updated.
1294 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
1295 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
1296
1297 [[ New Features ]]
1298 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
1299
1300 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1301 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
1302 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
1303 version installed
1304 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
1305 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
1306 of the tests from running.
1307 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
1308 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
1309 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
1310 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
1311 (bleadperl@14978)
1312 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
1313 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
1314 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
1315 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
1316 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
1317 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
1318 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
1319 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
1320 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
1321 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
1322 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.

13245.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
1325 [[ API Changes ]]
479d2113 1326 - htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
f6d6199c
MS
1327 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
1328 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
1329 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
1330 more than five years).
1331 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
1332 see how its useful outside the core.
1333
1334 [[ New Features ]]
1335 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
1336 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
1337 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
1338 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
1339 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
1340
1341 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1342 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
1343 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
1344 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
1345 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
1346 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
1347 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
1348
1349 [[ Doc Changes ]]
1350 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
1351 reflecting its odd behavior.
1352 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
1353 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
1354 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
1355
1356 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
1357 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
1358 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
1359 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
1360 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
1361 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
1362 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
1363 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
1364 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
1365 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
1366
13675.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
1368 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
1369 chdir without breaking @INC.
1370 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
1371 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
1372 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
1373 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
1374 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
1375 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
1376
1377 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
1378 change.
1379 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
1380 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
1381 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
1382 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
1383 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
1384 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
1385 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
1386 backporting
1387 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
1388 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
1389 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1390 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1391 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1392 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1393 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1394 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1395 explicitly required MM_Unix.
1396 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
1397 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1398 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1399 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
1400 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
1401 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
1402 to EU::MM.
1403 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
1404
14055.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
1406 - No longer requiring Test::More
1407 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 1408 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.

MS
1409 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
1410 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
1411 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
1412 No longer obsolete
1413 - Little test fixes

14155.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
1416 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
1417 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
1418 work on Win32/5.6.1.
1419 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
1420 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
1421 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
1422 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
1423 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
1424 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
1425
14265.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
1427 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

1430 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
1431 * Backported to 5.6.1
1432 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
1433 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
1434 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
1435 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
