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

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

25 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
26 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
27
286.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
29 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
30 itself and the metafile documentation.
31 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
32 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
33 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
34 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
35 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
36 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

45 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
46 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
47 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
48 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
49 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
50 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
51 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
52 to INST_*.
53 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
54 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
55 really bizarre way.
56
576.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
58 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
59 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
60 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
61 * Noting where to find make in the README
62 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
63 on Windows.

66 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
67 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
68 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
69 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
70 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
71 This appears to be a rather old bug.
72 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
73 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
74 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
75 of prepending a .. onto it.
76 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
77 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
78 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
79 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
80 repeating the list all over the code.
81 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
82 with DESTDIR set.
83 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
84 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
85 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
86 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
87 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
88 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
89 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
90 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
91 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
92 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
93 when it didn't.
94
956.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
96 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
97 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
98 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
99 to using multiple -e's.
100 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
101 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
102 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
103 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
104 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
105 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
106 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
107 $(ECHO).
108 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

1106.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
111 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
112 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
113 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
114 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
115 the basic.t test on Windows.

1176.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
118 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
119 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
120 alter your manifest.
121 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
122 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
123 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
124 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
125 around 6.06_01.
126 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
127 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
128 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
129 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
130 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
131 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
132 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

1346.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
135 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
136 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
137 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
138 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
139 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
140 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
141 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
142 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
143 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
144 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
145 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
146 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
147 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
148 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
149 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
150 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
151 sometimes don't get installed.
152 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
153 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
154 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
155 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
156
1576.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
158 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
159 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
160 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
161 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
162 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
163 Fixed.
164 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
165 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
166 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
167 (Stas Bekman)
168 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
169 (Craig Berry)
170 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
171 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
172 miserably.
173 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
174
1756.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
176 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
177 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
178 Just on OS/2.
179
1806.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
181 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
182 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
183 to skip installing a file.
184 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
185 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
186 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
187 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
188 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
189 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
190 removed. No longer relevent.
191 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
192 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
193 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
194 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
195 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
196 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
197 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
198 properly before. (Craig Berry)
199 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
200 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
201 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
202 reading.
203 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
204 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
205 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
206 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
207 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
208
209# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
210# so much change between 6.05 and now.

213 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
214 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
215 warning because of this.
216 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
217 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
218 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
219 Worked around.
220 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
221 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
222
2236.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
224 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
225 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
226 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
227 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
228 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
229 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
230 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
231 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
232 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
233 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
234 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
235 Missing since 5.6.1.
236 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
237 command line lengths.
238 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
239 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
240 eof() not honor tied handles.
241 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
242 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
243
2446.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
245 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
246 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
247 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
248 to think modules weren't installed.
249 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
250 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
251 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
252 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
253 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
254 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
255 warn_if_old_packlist().
256 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
257 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
258 in the first place.
259 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
260 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
261 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
262 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
263 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
264 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
265 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
266 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
267 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
268 expansion
269 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
270 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
271 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
272 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
273 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
274 MakeMaker.
275 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
276 - Added compile & POD test
277 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
278 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
279 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
280 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
281 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
282 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
283 [perl #21526]
284
2856.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
286 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
287 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
288 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
289 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
290 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
291 fixpath() work again.
292
2936.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
294 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
295 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
296 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
297 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
298 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
299 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
300 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
301 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
302 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
303 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
304 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
305 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
306 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
307 using that.
308 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
309 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
310 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
311 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
312 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
313 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
314 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
315 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
316 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
317 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
318 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
319 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
320 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
321 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
322 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
323 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
324 by default.
325 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
326 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
327 - Improved DISTNAME docs
328 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
329 * Documented dist()
330 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
331 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
332 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
333 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
334 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
335 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
336 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
337 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
338 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
339 of the clean target.
340 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
341 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
342 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
343 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
344 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
345 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
346 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
347 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
348 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
349 target.
350 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
351 they come first.
352 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
353 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
354 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
355 init_platform().
356 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
357 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
358 init_VERSION().
359 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
360 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
361
362 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
363 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
364 init_others() to init_platform()
365 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
366 init_platform()
367 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
368 constants() to init_platform()
369
370 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
371 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
372 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
373 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
374 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
375 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
376 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
377 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
378 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
379
380 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
381 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
382 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
383 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
384 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
385 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
386 init_VERSION
387 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
388 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
389 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
390
391 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
392 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
393 Everything else was redundant.
394
395 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
396 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
397 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
398 into init_linker().
399 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
400 MM_VMS_VERSION.
401 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
402 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
403 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
404 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
405 overrides.
406 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
407 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
408 unportable part of the realclean target.
409 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
410 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
411 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
412 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
413 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS

415 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
416 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
417 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
418 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
419 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
420 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
421 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
422 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
423 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
424 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
425 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
426 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
427 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
428 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
429 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean

432 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
433 dont_execute arguments.

435 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
436 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
437 commands.
438 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
439 be pointless.

463 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
464 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
465 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
466 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
467 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
468 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
