280.280223 - 2015-06-02
29
30 Fixed:
31
32 - Impose deterministic order on cpp-definition options.
33 Heretofore, ExtUtils::CBuilder put cpp-definition options
34 into the cc command line in non-deterministic order. This
35 produced noise when diffing build logs.
36 Make this order deterministic. (RT #124106)
37
38 Added:

203 - handle c compiler and c++ compiler separately
204 (adds requirement for IPC::Cmd) [Jens Rehsack]

285
286 - No changes from 0.25_01
287

289
290 - Changed test library to Test::More
291
292 - Added tests for have_compiler
293
294 - Skips tests that need a compiler if have_compiler is false
295
296 - have_compiler will try to compile in the current directory
297 if compiling in tmpdir fails for whatever reason
298
2990.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
300
301 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
302
3030.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
304
305 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
306 linked. [Jan Dubois]
307
308 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
309 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
310 Urban]
311
312 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
313 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
314

316
3170.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008
318
319 - Added 'gnu' and 'gnukfreebsd' as Unix variants. [Niko Tyni]
320
321 - Brought in some VMS fixes from bleadperl: "Correct and complete
322 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
323 [Craig Berry]
324
3250.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
326
327 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
328 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
329
330 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
331 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
332
3330.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
334
335 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
336 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
337 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
338 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
339
340 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
341 ignored. [Robert May]
342
3430.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
344
345 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
346 as part of the perl core.
347
348 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
349 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
350
351 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
352 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
353 Steve Peters]
354
3550.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
356
357 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
358 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
359 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
360
361 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
362 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
363
3640.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
365
366 - Various OS/2 fixes:
367 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
368 + Got library-file building working better
369 + Handled libperl_overrides better
370 [Ilya Zakharevich]
371
372 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
373 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
374
375 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
376 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
377
378 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
379 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
380 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
381 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
382
3830.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
384
385 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
386 E. Malmberg]
387
3880.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
389
390 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
391 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
392 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
393 Sims]
394
395 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
396 John E. Malmberg]
397
3980.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
399
400 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
401 Scott-Thoennes]
402
403 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
404 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
405 A. Berry]
406
407 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
408 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
409 Scott-Thoennes]
410
4110.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
412
413 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
414 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
415 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
416 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
417 Zakharevich]
418
419 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
420 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
421
422 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
a9ccbcd7 423 platform-independent way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
71b9be80
DG
424 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
425
4260.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
427
428 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
429 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
430 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
431 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
432 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
433 E. Malmberg]
434
4350.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
436
437 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
438 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
439 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
440
4410.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
442
443 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
444 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
445 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
446 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
447 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
448 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
449 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
450
451 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
452 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
453 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
454 [Curt Tilmes]
455
456 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
457 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
458 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
459
460 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
461 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
462 Scott-Thoennes]
463
4640.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
465
466 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
467 Salzenberg]
468
4690.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
470
471 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
472 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
473 where they're very different.
474
475 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
476 Peter Prymmer]
477
4780.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
479
480 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
481 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
482 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
483 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
484 executables.
485
4860.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
487
488 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
489 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
490
4910.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
492
493 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
494 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
495 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
496 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
497
498 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
499 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
500 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
501 and so on. [Randy Sims]
502
503 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
504 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
505 compile(). [Randy Sims]
506
5070.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
508
509 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
510 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
511 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
512
5130.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
514
515 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
516 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
517 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
518
519 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
520
5210.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
522
523 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
524 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
525 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
526
527
5280.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
529
530 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
531 should be quoted.
532
533 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
534
535
5360.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
537
538 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
539 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
540
541 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
542 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
543 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
544
545
