217
218 - Added tests for have_compiler

224
2250.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
226
227 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
228
2290.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
230
231 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
232 linked. [Jan Dubois]
233
234 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
235 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
236 Urban]
237
238 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
239 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
240

242
2430.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008

248 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
249 [Craig Berry]
250
2510.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
252
253 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
254 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
255
256 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
257 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
258
2590.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
260
261 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
262 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
263 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
264 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
265
266 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
267 ignored. [Robert May]
268
2690.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
270
271 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
272 as part of the perl core.
273
274 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
275 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
276
277 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
278 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
279 Steve Peters]
280
2810.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
282
283 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
284 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
285 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
286
287 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
288 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
289
2900.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
291
292 - Various OS/2 fixes:
293 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
294 + Got library-file building working better
295 + Handled libperl_overrides better
296 [Ilya Zakharevich]
297
298 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
299 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
300
301 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
302 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
303
304 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
305 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
306 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
307 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
308
3090.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
310
311 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
312 E. Malmberg]
313
3140.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
315
316 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
317 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
318 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
319 Sims]
320
321 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
322 John E. Malmberg]
323
3240.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
325
326 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
327 Scott-Thoennes]
328
329 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
330 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
331 A. Berry]
332
333 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
334 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
335 Scott-Thoennes]
336
3370.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
338
339 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
340 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
341 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
342 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
343 Zakharevich]
344
345 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
346 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
347
348 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
349 platform-independant way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
350 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
351
3520.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
353
354 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
355 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
356 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
357 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
358 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
359 E. Malmberg]
360
3610.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
362
363 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
364 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
365 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
366
3670.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
368
369 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
370 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
371 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
372 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
373 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
374 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
375 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
376
377 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
378 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
379 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
380 [Curt Tilmes]
381
382 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
383 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
384 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
385
386 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
387 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
388 Scott-Thoennes]
389
3900.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
391
392 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
393 Salzenberg]
394
3950.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
396
397 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
398 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
399 where they're very different.
400
401 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
402 Peter Prymmer]
403
4040.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
405
406 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
407 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
408 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
409 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
410 executables.
411
4120.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
413
414 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
415 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
416
4170.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
418
419 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
420 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
421 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
422 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
423
424 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
425 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
426 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
427 and so on. [Randy Sims]
428
429 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
430 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
431 compile(). [Randy Sims]
432
4330.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
434
435 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
436 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
437 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
438
4390.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
440
441 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
442 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
443 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
444
445 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
446
4470.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
448
449 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
450 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
451 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
452
453
4540.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
455
456 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
457 should be quoted.
458
459 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
460
461
4620.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
463
464 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
465 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
466
467 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
468 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
469 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
470
471
4720.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
473
474 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
475 patching help from Randy Sims.
