16.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
2 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
3 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
4 replaced with something better next version.
5 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
6 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
7 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
8 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
9 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
10 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
11 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
12 same place?"
13 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
14 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
15
166.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
17 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
18
196.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
20 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
21 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
22 empty.
23 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
24 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
25 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
26 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
27 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
28 - $Revision was broken.
29 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
30 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
31 - Clarified that test_f() exits.

336.30_01 Tue Aug 16 23:53:27 PDT 2005
34 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
35 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
36 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
37 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
38 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
39 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
40 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
41 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
42 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
43 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
44 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
45 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
46 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
47 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
48 version.
49 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
50 text to the generated META.yml.
51 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
52 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
53 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
54 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
55 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
56 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
57 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
58 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
59 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
60 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
61 dmake or nmake.

636.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
64 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
65 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
66 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
67 Test::Harness.
68

RGS
696.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
70 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
71 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
72 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
73 modules.
74 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
75 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
76

776.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
78 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
79 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
80 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
81 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
82 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
83 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
84 (bleadperl@24185)
85 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
86
7292dc67
RGS
876.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
88 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
89 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
90
916.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
92 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
93 passed the file they were to generate.
94 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
95 now documented.
96 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
97
986.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
99
1006.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
101 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
102 version is found.
103 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
104
1056.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
106 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
107 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
108 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
109
1106.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
111 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
112 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
113 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
114 previous alpha releases.
115
1166.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
117 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
118 and better.
119 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
120 now possible.
121
1226.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
123 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
124 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
125 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
126 XSUBPP alone.
127 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
128 make commands too long on VMS.
129 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
130 .exists files everywhere.
131 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
132 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
133 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
134 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
135 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
136 Module::Install
137
1386.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
139 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
140 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
141 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
142 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
143 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
144
1456.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
146 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
147 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
148 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
149 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
150 it yet. I'll do that next release.
151
1526.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
153 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
154 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
155 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
156 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
157 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
158
1596.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
160 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
161
1626.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
163 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
164 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
165 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
166 things like SVN's perl bindings.
167
1686.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
169 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
170 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
171 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
172 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
173 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
174 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
175 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
176 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
177 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
178 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
179
1806.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
181 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
182 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
183 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
184 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
185 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
186 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
187 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
188 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
189 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
190 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.
191

RGS
1926.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
193 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
194 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
195 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
196
1976.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
198 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
199 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
200 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
201 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
202 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
203 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
204
2056.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
206 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
207 installing some Tk modules.
208
2096.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
210 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
211 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
212
2136.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
214 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
215 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
216 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
217
2186.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
219 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
220 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
221 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
222 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
223 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
224 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
225 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
226 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
227 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 228 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 229 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
230 [Greg Matheson]
231 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
232 [Slaven Rezic]
233 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
234 [Slaven Rezic]
235 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
236 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
237 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
238 [Ilya Zakharevich]
239 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
240 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
241 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
242 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
243 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
244 Module::Build instead.
245 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
246 VMS. [rt 4675]
247 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
248 existing uses.
249 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
250 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
251 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
252 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
253 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
254 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
255 [rt 4687]
256 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
257 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
258 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
259 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
260 VMS. [rt 4676]
261 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
262 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 263
af7522e5 2646.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 265 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
266 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
267 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
268 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
269 for backwards compatibility.
270 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
271 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.
272

RGS
2736.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
274 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
275 take a more conservative approach.
276 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
277 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
278 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
279 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
280 nmake [rt 4285 4301]
281
a7d1454b
RGS
2826.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
283 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
284 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
285 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
286 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
287 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
288 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
289
2906.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
291 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
292 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
293 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
294 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
295 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
296 Perls.
297 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
298 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
299 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
300 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
301 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
302 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
303 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
304 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
305 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
306 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
307 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
308 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
309 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
310 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
311 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
312 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
313 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
314 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
315 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
316 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
317 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
318 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
319 November and nobody noticed.
320 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
321 by the user.
322 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
323 * Documented UNINST=1
324

3256.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
326 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
327 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
328 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
329 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
330 (Orton Yves)
331 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
332 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
333 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
334 ndbgperl.exe.
335 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.
336
2c91f887
JH
3376.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
338 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
339 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
340 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
341 [Sreeji K Das]
342 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
343 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
344 bleadperl@20530)
345 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
346 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)
347

3486.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
349 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
350 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
351
3526.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
353 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
354 itself and the metafile documentation.
355 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
356 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
357 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
358 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
359 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
360 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

3626.13 Thu Jul 31 16:48:01 PDT 2003
363 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
364 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
365 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
366 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.
367

3686.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
369 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
370 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
371 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
372 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
373 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
374 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
375 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
376 to INST_*.
377 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
378 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
379 really bizarre way.
380
3816.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
382 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
383 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
384 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
385 * Noting where to find make in the README
386 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
387 on Windows.
1b0fc073
JH
388
3896.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
390 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
391 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
392 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
393 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
394 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
395 This appears to be a rather old bug.
396 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
397 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
398 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
399 of prepending a .. onto it.
400 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
401 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
402 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
403 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
404 repeating the list all over the code.
405 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
406 with DESTDIR set.
407 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
408 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
409 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
410 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
411 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
412 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
413 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
414 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
415 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
416 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
417 when it didn't.

4196.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
420 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
421 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
422 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
423 to using multiple -e's.
424 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
425 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
426 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
427 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
428 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
429 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
430 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
431 $(ECHO).
432 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

4346.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
435 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
436 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
437 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
438 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
439 the basic.t test on Windows.

442 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
443 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
444 alter your manifest.
445 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
446 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
447 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
448 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
449 around 6.06_01.
450 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
451 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
452 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
453 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
454 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
455 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
456 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

4586.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
459 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
460 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
461 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
462 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
463 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
464 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
465 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
466 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
467 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
468 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
469 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
470 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
471 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
472 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
473 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
474 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
475 sometimes don't get installed.
476 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
477 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
478 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
479 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
480
4816.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
482 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
483 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
484 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
485 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
486 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
487 Fixed.
488 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
489 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
490 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
491 (Stas Bekman)
492 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
493 (Craig Berry)
494 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
495 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
496 miserably.
497 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
498
4996.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
500 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
501 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
502 Just on OS/2.
503
5046.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
505 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
506 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
507 to skip installing a file.
508 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
509 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
510 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
511 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
512 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
513 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
514 removed. No longer relevent.
515 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
516 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
517 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
518 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
519 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
520 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
521 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
522 properly before. (Craig Berry)
523 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
524 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
525 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
526 reading.
527 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
528 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
529 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
530 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
531 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
532
533# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
534# so much change between 6.05 and now.

537 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
538 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
539 warning because of this.
540 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
541 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
542 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
543 Worked around.
544 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
545 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
546
5476.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
548 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
549 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
550 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
551 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
552 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
553 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
554 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
555 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
556 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
557 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
558 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
559 Missing since 5.6.1.
560 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
561 command line lengths.
562 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
563 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
564 eof() not honor tied handles.
565 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
566 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
567
5686.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
569 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
570 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
571 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
572 to think modules weren't installed.
573 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
574 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
575 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
576 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
577 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
578 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
579 warn_if_old_packlist().
580 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
581 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
582 in the first place.
583 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
584 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
585 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
586 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
587 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
588 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
589 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
590 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
591 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
592 expansion
593 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
594 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
595 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
596 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
597 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
598 MakeMaker.
599 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
600 - Added compile & POD test
601 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
602 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
603 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
604 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
605 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
606 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
607 [perl #21526]
608
6096.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
610 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
611 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
612 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
613 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
614 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
615 fixpath() work again.
616
6176.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
618 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
619 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
620 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
621 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
622 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
623 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
624 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
625 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
626 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
627 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
628 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
629 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
630 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
631 using that.
632 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
633 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
634 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
635 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
636 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
637 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
638 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
639 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
640 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
641 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
642 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
643 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
644 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
645 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
646 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
647 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
648 by default.
649 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
650 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
651 - Improved DISTNAME docs
652 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
653 * Documented dist()
654 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
655 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
656 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
657 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
658 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
659 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
660 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
661 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
662 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
663 of the clean target.
664 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
665 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
666 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
667 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
668 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
669 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
670 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
671 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
672 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
673 target.
674 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
675 they come first.
676 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
677 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
678 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
679 init_platform().
680 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
681 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
682 init_VERSION().
683 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
684 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
685
686 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
687 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
688 init_others() to init_platform()
689 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
690 init_platform()
691 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
692 constants() to init_platform()
693
694 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
695 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
696 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
697 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
698 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
699 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
700 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
701 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
702 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
703
704 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
705 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
706 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
707 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
708 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
709 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
710 init_VERSION
711 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
712 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
713 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
714
715 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
716 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
717 Everything else was redundant.
718
719 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
720 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
721 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
722 into init_linker().
723 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
724 MM_VMS_VERSION.
725 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
726 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
727 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
728 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
729 overrides.
730 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
731 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
732 unportable part of the realclean target.
733 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
734 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
735 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
736 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
737 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
738 is explicitly set to empty.
739 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
740 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
741 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
742 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
743 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
744 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
745 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
746 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
747 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
748 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
749 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
750 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
751 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
752 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
753 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
754 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
755 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
756 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
757 dont_execute arguments.
758 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
759 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
760 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
761 commands.
762 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
763 be pointless.
764 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
765 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
766 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
767 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
768
7696.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
770 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
771 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
772
7736.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
774 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
775 right.
776 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
777 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
778 - Documented the LD flag.
779 * Documented prompt()
780 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
781 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
782 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
783 (bleadperl 17488)
784 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
785 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
786 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
787 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
788 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
789 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
790 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
791 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
792 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
793 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
794 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)
795

1153 @MM::ISA does that itself.

1158 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
