2 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
3 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
4 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
5 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
6 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
7 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
8 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
9 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
10 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
11 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
12 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
13 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
14 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
15 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
16 version.
17 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
18 text to the generated META.yml.
19 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
20 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
21 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
22 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
23 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
24 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
25 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
26 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
27 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
28 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
29 dmake or nmake.

316.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
32 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
33 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
34 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
35 Test::Harness.
36

RGS
376.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
38 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
39 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
40 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
41 modules.
42 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
43 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.

456.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
46 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
47 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
48 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
49 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
50 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
51 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
52 (bleadperl@24185)
53 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
54

RGS
556.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
56 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
57 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
58
596.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
60 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
61 passed the file they were to generate.
62 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
63 now documented.
64 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
65
666.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
67
686.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
69 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
70 version is found.
71 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
72
736.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
74 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
75 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
76 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
77
786.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
79 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
80 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
81 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
82 previous alpha releases.
83
846.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
85 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
86 and better.
87 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
88 now possible.
89
906.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
91 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
92 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
93 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
94 XSUBPP alone.
95 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
96 make commands too long on VMS.
97 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
98 .exists files everywhere.
99 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
100 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
101 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
102 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
103 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
104 Module::Install
105
1066.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
107 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
108 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
109 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
110 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
111 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
112
1136.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
114 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
115 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
116 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
117 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
118 it yet. I'll do that next release.
119
1206.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
121 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
122 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
123 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
124 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
125 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
126
1276.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
128 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
129
1306.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
131 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
132 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
133 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
134 things like SVN's perl bindings.
135
1366.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
137 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
138 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
139 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
140 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
141 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
142 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
143 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
144 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
145 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
146 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
147
1486.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
149 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
150 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
151 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
152 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
153 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
154 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
155 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
156 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
157 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
158 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.

RGS
1606.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
161 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
162 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
163 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
164
1656.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
166 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
167 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
168 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
169 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
170 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
171 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
172
1736.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
174 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
175 installing some Tk modules.
176
1776.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
178 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
179 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
180
1816.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
182 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
183 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
184 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
185
1866.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
187 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
188 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
189 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
190 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
191 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
192 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
193 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
194 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
195 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 196 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 197 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
198 [Greg Matheson]
199 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
200 [Slaven Rezic]
201 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
202 [Slaven Rezic]
203 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
204 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
205 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
206 [Ilya Zakharevich]
207 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
208 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
209 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
210 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
211 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
212 Module::Build instead.
213 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
214 VMS. [rt 4675]
215 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
216 existing uses.
217 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
218 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
219 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
220 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
221 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
222 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
223 [rt 4687]
224 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
225 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
226 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
227 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
228 VMS. [rt 4676]
229 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
230 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 231
af7522e5 2326.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 233 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
234 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
235 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
236 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
237 for backwards compatibility.
238 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
239 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.
240

RGS
2416.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
242 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
243 take a more conservative approach.
244 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
245 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
246 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
247 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
248 nmake [rt 4285 4301]
249
a7d1454b
RGS
2506.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
251 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
252 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
253 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
254 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
255 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
256 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
257
2586.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
259 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
260 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
261 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
262 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
263 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
264 Perls.
265 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
266 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
267 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
268 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
269 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
270 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
271 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
272 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
273 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
274 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
275 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
276 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
277 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
278 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
279 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
280 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
281 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
282 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
283 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
284 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
285 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
286 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
287 November and nobody noticed.
288 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
289 by the user.
290 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
291 * Documented UNINST=1
292
30361541
JH
2936.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
294 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
295 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
296 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
297 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
298 (Orton Yves)
299 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
300 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
301 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
302 ndbgperl.exe.
303 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.
304
2c91f887
JH
3056.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
306 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
307 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
308 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
309 [Sreeji K Das]
310 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
311 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
312 bleadperl@20530)
313 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
314 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)
315
64964e6d
JH
3166.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
317 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
318 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
319
3206.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
321 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
322 itself and the metafile documentation.
323 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
324 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
325 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
326 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
327 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
328 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.
329

3306.13 Thu Jul 31 16:48:01 PDT 2003
331 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
332 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
333 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
334 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.
335
1b0fc073
JH
3366.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
337 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
338 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
339 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
340 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
341 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
342 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
343 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
344 to INST_*.
345 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
346 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
347 really bizarre way.
348
3496.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
350 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
351 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
352 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
353 * Noting where to find make in the README
354 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
355 on Windows.
1b0fc073
JH
356
3576.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
358 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
359 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
360 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
361 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
362 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
363 This appears to be a rather old bug.
364 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
365 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
366 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
367 of prepending a .. onto it.
368 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
369 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
370 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
371 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
372 repeating the list all over the code.
373 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
374 with DESTDIR set.
375 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
376 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
377 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
378 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
379 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
380 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
381 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
382 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
383 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
384 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
385 when it didn't.
386
3876.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
388 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
389 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
390 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
391 to using multiple -e's.
392 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
393 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
394 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
395 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
396 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
397 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous

403 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
404 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
405 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
406 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
407 the basic.t test on Windows.

410 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
411 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
412 alter your manifest.
413 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
414 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
415 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
416 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
417 around 6.06_01.
418 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
419 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
420 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
421 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
422 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)

427 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
428 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
429 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
430 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
431 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
432 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
433 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
434 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
435 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
436 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
437 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
438 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
439 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
440 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
441 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
442 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
443 sometimes don't get installed.
444 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
445 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
446 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
447 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
448
4496.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
450 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
451 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
452 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
453 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
454 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
455 Fixed.
456 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
457 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
458 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
459 (Stas Bekman)
460 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
461 (Craig Berry)

466
4676.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
468 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
469 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
470 Just on OS/2.
471
4726.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
473 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
474 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
475 to skip installing a file.
476 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
477 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
478 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
479 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
480 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
481 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
482 removed. No longer relevent.
483 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
484 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
485 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
486 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
487 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
488 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
489 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
490 properly before. (Craig Berry)
491 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
492 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
493 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
494 reading.
495 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.

505 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
506 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
507 warning because of this.
508 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
509 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
510 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
511 Worked around.
512 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
513 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
514
5156.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
516 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
517 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
518 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
519 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
520 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
521 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
522 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
523 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
524 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
525 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
526 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
527 Missing since 5.6.1.
528 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
529 command line lengths.
530 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
531 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
532 eof() not honor tied handles.
533 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
534 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
535
5366.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
537 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
538 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
539 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
540 to think modules weren't installed.
541 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
542 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
543 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
544 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
545 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
546 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
547 warn_if_old_packlist().
548 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
549 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
550 in the first place.
551 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
552 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
553 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
554 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
555 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
556 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
557 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
558 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
559 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
560 expansion
561 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
562 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
563 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
564 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
565 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
566 MakeMaker.
567 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
568 - Added compile & POD test
569 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
570 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
571 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
572 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
573 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
574 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
575 [perl #21526]
576
5776.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
578 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
579 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
580 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
581 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
582 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
583 fixpath() work again.
584
5856.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
586 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
587 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
588 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
589 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
590 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
591 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
592 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
593 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
594 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
595 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
596 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
597 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
598 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
599 using that.
600 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
601 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
602 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
603 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
604 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
605 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
606 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
607 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
608 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
609 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
610 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
611 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
612 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
613 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
614 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
615 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
616 by default.
617 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
618 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
619 - Improved DISTNAME docs
620 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
621 * Documented dist()
622 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
623 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
624 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
625 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
626 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
627 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
628 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
629 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
630 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
631 of the clean target.
632 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
633 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
634 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
635 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
636 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
637 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
638 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
639 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
640 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
641 target.
642 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
643 they come first.
644 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
645 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
646 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
647 init_platform().
648 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
649 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
650 init_VERSION().
651 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
652 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
653
654 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
655 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
656 init_others() to init_platform()
657 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
658 init_platform()
659 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
660 constants() to init_platform()
661
662 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
663 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
664 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
665 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
666 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
667 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
668 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
669 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
670 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
671
672 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
673 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
674 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
675 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
676 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
677 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
678 init_VERSION
679 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
680 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
681 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
682
683 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
684 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
685 Everything else was redundant.
686
687 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
688 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
689 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
690 into init_linker().
691 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
692 MM_VMS_VERSION.
693 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
694 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
695 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
696 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
697 overrides.
698 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
699 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
700 unportable part of the realclean target.
701 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
702 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
703 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
704 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
705 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
706 is explicitly set to empty.
707 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
708 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
709 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
710 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
711 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
712 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
713 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
714 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
715 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
716 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
717 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
718 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
719 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
720 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
721 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
722 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
723 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
724 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
725 dont_execute arguments.
726 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
727 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
728 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
729 commands.
730 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
731 be pointless.
732 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
733 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
734 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
735 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
736
7376.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
738 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
739 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
740
7416.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
742 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
743 right.
744 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
745 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
746 - Documented the LD flag.
747 * Documented prompt()
748 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
749 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
750 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
751 (bleadperl 17488)
752 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
753 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
754 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
755 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
756 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
757 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
758 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
759 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
760 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
761 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
762 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)

784 post_initialize() now used, DEFINE & INC work with relative paths,
785 removed dead hybrid method/function call code.
786 * WriteMakefile now a bit more tolerant of wrong arguments, it will
787 warn and try to soldier on rather than just vomiting.
788 - Netware whitespace nits (bleadperl@16811)
789 - Netware Perl version number tag when building dynamic libraries
790 needs to match the current perl version instead of being hard coded
791 (a mutation of bleadperl@16851)
792 - OS/2 bug in TEST_F target found by John Poltorak (bleadperl@16839)

801 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command so it groks % shell wildcard on VMS.
802 [RT 625]
803 - MM now depends on Test::Harness 2.00 on VMS else tests with -T

1118 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1119 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1120 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1121 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1122 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1123 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1124 explicitly required MM_Unix.

1126 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1127 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1128 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
