1780.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
179
180 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
181
1820.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
183
184 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
185 linked. [Jan Dubois]
186
187 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
188 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
189 Urban]
190
191 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
192 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
193

195
1960.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008

201 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
202 [Craig Berry]
203
2040.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
205
206 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
207 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
208
209 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
210 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
211
2120.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
213
214 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
215 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
216 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
217 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
218
219 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
220 ignored. [Robert May]
221
2220.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
223
224 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
225 as part of the perl core.
226
227 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
228 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
229
230 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
231 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
232 Steve Peters]
233
2340.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
235
236 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
237 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
238 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
239
240 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
241 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
242
2430.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
244
245 - Various OS/2 fixes:
246 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
247 + Got library-file building working better
248 + Handled libperl_overrides better
249 [Ilya Zakharevich]
250
251 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
252 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
253
254 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
255 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
256
257 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
258 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
259 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
260 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
261
2620.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
263
264 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
265 E. Malmberg]
266
2670.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
268
269 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
270 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
271 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
272 Sims]
273
274 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
275 John E. Malmberg]
276
2770.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
278
279 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
280 Scott-Thoennes]
281
282 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
283 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
284 A. Berry]
285
286 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
287 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
288 Scott-Thoennes]
289
2900.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
291
292 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
293 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
294 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
295 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
296 Zakharevich]
297
298 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
299 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
300
301 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
302 platform-independant way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
303 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
304
3050.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
306
307 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
308 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
309 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
310 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
311 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
312 E. Malmberg]
313
3140.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
315
316 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
317 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
318 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
319
3200.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
321
322 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
323 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
324 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
325 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
326 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
327 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
328 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
329
330 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
331 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
332 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
333 [Curt Tilmes]
334
335 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
336 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
337 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
338
339 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
340 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
341 Scott-Thoennes]
342
3430.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
344
345 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
346 Salzenberg]
347
3480.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
349
350 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
351 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
352 where they're very different.
353
354 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
355 Peter Prymmer]
356
3570.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
358
359 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
360 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
361 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
362 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
363 executables.
364
3650.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
366
367 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
368 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
369
3700.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
371
372 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
373 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
374 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
375 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
376
377 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
378 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
379 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
380 and so on. [Randy Sims]
381
382 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
383 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
384 compile(). [Randy Sims]
385
3860.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
387
388 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
389 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
390 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
391
3920.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
393
394 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
395 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
396 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
397
398 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
399
4000.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
401
402 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
403 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
404 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
405
406
4070.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
408
409 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
410 should be quoted.
411
412 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
413
414
4150.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
416
417 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
418 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
419
420 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
421 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
422 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
423
424
4250.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
426
427 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
428 patching help from Randy Sims.
