2 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
3 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
4 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
5 [Sreeji K Das]
6 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
7 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
8 bleadperl@20530)
9 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
10 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

13 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
14 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
15
166.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
17 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
18 itself and the metafile documentation.
19 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
20 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
21 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
22 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
23 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
24 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

33 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
34 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
35 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
36 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
37 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
38 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
39 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
40 to INST_*.
41 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
42 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
43 really bizarre way.
44
456.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
46 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
47 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
48 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
49 * Noting where to find make in the README
50 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
51 on Windows.

54 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
55 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
56 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
57 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
58 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
59 This appears to be a rather old bug.
60 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
61 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
62 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
63 of prepending a .. onto it.
64 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
65 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
66 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
67 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
68 repeating the list all over the code.
69 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
70 with DESTDIR set.
71 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
72 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
73 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
74 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
75 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
76 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
77 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
78 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
79 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
80 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
81 when it didn't.
82
836.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
84 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
85 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
86 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
87 to using multiple -e's.
88 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
89 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
90 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
91 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
92 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
93 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
94 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
95 $(ECHO).
96 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'
e3aa3ecb 97

986.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
99 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
100 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
101 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
102 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
103 the basic.t test on Windows.

1056.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
106 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
107 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
108 alter your manifest.
109 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
110 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
111 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
112 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
113 around 6.06_01.
114 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
115 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
116 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
117 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
118 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
119 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
120 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

1226.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
123 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
124 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
125 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
126 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
127 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
128 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
129 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
130 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
131 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
132 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
133 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
134 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
135 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
136 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
137 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
138 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
139 sometimes don't get installed.
140 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
141 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
142 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
143 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
144
1456.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
146 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
147 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
148 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
149 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
150 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
151 Fixed.
152 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
153 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
154 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
155 (Stas Bekman)
156 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
157 (Craig Berry)
158 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
159 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
160 miserably.
161 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
162
1636.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
164 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
165 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
166 Just on OS/2.
167
1686.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
169 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
170 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
171 to skip installing a file.
172 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
173 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
174 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
175 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
176 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
177 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
178 removed. No longer relevent.
179 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
180 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
181 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
182 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
183 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
184 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
185 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
186 properly before. (Craig Berry)
187 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
188 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
189 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
190 reading.
191 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
192 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
193 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
194 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
195 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
196
197# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
198# so much change between 6.05 and now.

201 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
202 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
203 warning because of this.
204 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
205 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
206 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
207 Worked around.
208 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
209 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
210
2116.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
212 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
213 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
214 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
215 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
216 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
217 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
218 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
219 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
220 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
221 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
222 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
223 Missing since 5.6.1.
224 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
225 command line lengths.
226 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
227 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
228 eof() not honor tied handles.
229 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
230 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
231
2326.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
233 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
234 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
235 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
236 to think modules weren't installed.
237 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
238 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
239 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
240 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
241 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
242 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
243 warn_if_old_packlist().
244 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
245 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
246 in the first place.
247 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
248 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
249 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
250 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
251 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
252 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
253 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
254 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
255 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
256 expansion
257 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
258 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
259 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
260 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
261 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
262 MakeMaker.
263 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
264 - Added compile & POD test
265 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
266 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
267 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
268 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
269 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
270 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
271 [perl #21526]
272
2736.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
274 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
275 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
276 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
277 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
278 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
279 fixpath() work again.
280
2816.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
282 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
283 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
284 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
285 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
286 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
287 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
288 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
289 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
290 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
291 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
292 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
293 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
294 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
295 using that.
296 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
297 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
298 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
299 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
300 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
301 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
302 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
303 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
304 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
305 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
306 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
307 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
308 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
309 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
310 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
311 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
312 by default.
313 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
314 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
315 - Improved DISTNAME docs
316 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
317 * Documented dist()
318 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
319 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
320 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
321 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
322 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
323 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
324 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
325 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
326 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
327 of the clean target.
328 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
329 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
330 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
331 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
332 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
333 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
334 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
335 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
336 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
337 target.
338 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
339 they come first.
340 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
341 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
342 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
343 init_platform().
344 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
345 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
346 init_VERSION().
347 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
348 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
349
350 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
351 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
352 init_others() to init_platform()
353 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
354 init_platform()
355 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
356 constants() to init_platform()
357
358 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
359 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
360 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
361 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
362 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
363 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
364 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
365 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
366 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
367
368 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
369 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
370 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
371 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
372 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
373 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
374 init_VERSION
375 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
376 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
377 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
378
379 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
380 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
381 Everything else was redundant.
382
383 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
384 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
385 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
386 into init_linker().
387 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
388 MM_VMS_VERSION.
389 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
390 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
391 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
392 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
393 overrides.
394 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
395 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
396 unportable part of the realclean target.
397 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
398 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
399 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
400 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
401 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
402 is explicitly set to empty.
403 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
404 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
405 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
406 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
407 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
408 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
409 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
410 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
411 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
412 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
413 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
414 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
415 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
