2 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
3 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
4 warning because of this.
5 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
6 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
7 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
8 Worked around.
9 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
10 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/

126.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
13 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
14 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
15 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
16 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
17 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
18 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
19 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
20 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
21 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
22 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
23 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
24 Missing since 5.6.1.
25 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
26 command line lengths.
27 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
28 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
29 eof() not honor tied handles.
30 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
31 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
32
336.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
34 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
35 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
36 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
37 to think modules weren't installed.
38 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
39 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
40 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
41 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
42 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
43 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
44 warn_if_old_packlist().
45 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
46 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
47 in the first place.
48 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
49 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
50 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
51 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
52 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
53 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
54 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
55 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
56 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
57 expansion
58 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
59 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
60 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
61 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
62 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
63 MakeMaker.
64 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
65 - Added compile & POD test
66 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
67 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
68 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
69 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
70 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
71 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
72 [perl #21526]
73
746.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
75 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
76 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
77 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
78 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
79 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
80 fixpath() work again.
81
826.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
83 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
84 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
85 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
86 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
87 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
88 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
89 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
90 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
91 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
92 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
93 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
94 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
95 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
96 using that.
97 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
98 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
99 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
100 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
101 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
102 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
103 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
104 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
105 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
106 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
107 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
108 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
109 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
110 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
111 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
112 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
113 by default.
114 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
115 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
116 - Improved DISTNAME docs
117 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
118 * Documented dist()
119 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
120 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
121 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
122 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
123 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
124 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
125 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
126 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
127 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
128 of the clean target.
129 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
130 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
131 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
132 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
133 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
134 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
135 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
136 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
137 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
138 target.
139 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
140 they come first.
141 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
142 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
143 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
144 init_platform().
145 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
146 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
147 init_VERSION().
148 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
149 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
150
151 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
152 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
153 init_others() to init_platform()
154 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
155 init_platform()
156 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
157 constants() to init_platform()
158
159 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
160 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
161 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
162 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
163 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
164 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
165 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
166 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
167 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
168
169 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
170 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
171 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
172 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
173 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
174 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
175 init_VERSION
176 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
177 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
178 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
179
180 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
181 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
182 Everything else was redundant.
183
184 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
185 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
186 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
187 into init_linker().
188 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
189 MM_VMS_VERSION.
190 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
191 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
192 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
193 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
194 overrides.
195 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
196 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
197 unportable part of the realclean target.
198 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
199 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
200 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
201 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
202 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
203 is explicitly set to empty.
204 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
205 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
206 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
207 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
208 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
209 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
210 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
211 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
212 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
213 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
214 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
215 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
216 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
217 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
218 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
219 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
220 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
221 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
222 dont_execute arguments.
223 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
224 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
225 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
226 commands.
227 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
228 be pointless.
229 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
230 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
231 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
232 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
233
2346.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
235 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
236 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
237
2386.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
239 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
240 right.
241 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
242 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
243 - Documented the LD flag.
244 * Documented prompt()
245 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
246 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
247 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
248 (bleadperl 17488)
249 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
250 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
251 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
252 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
253 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
254 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
255 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
256 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
257 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
258 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
259 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)

281 post_initialize() now used, DEFINE & INC work with relative paths,
282 removed dead hybrid method/function call code.
283 * WriteMakefile now a bit more tolerant of wrong arguments, it will
284 warn and try to soldier on rather than just vomiting.
285 - Netware whitespace nits (bleadperl@16811)
286 - Netware Perl version number tag when building dynamic libraries
287 needs to match the current perl version instead of being hard coded

440 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
441 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
442 make comments (bleadperl)
443 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
444 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
445 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95
446 - Fixed recursive Makefile.PL scan on VMS so it skips the distdir
447 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
448 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
449 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.

486 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
487 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
488 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
489 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
490 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
491 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
492 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
493 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
494 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
495 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
496 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04

503 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
504 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
505 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
506 Compensating for the bug.
507 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
508 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests

515 [[ API Changes ]]
516 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
517 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
518 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
519 not be updated.
520 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
521 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
522
523 [[ New Features ]]
524 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
525
526 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
527 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
528 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
529 version installed
530 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
531 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
532 of the tests from running.
533 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
534 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
535 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
536 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
537 (bleadperl@14978)
538 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
539 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
540 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
541 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
542 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
543 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
544 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
545 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
546 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
547 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
548 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.

553 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
554 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
555 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
556 more than five years).
557 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
558 see how its useful outside the core.
559
560 [[ New Features ]]
561 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
562 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
563 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
564 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
565 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
566
567 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
568 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
569 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
570 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
571 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
572 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
573 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
574
575 [[ Doc Changes ]]
576 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
577 reflecting its odd behavior.
578 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
579 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
580 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.

584 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
585 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
586 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
587 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
588 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
589 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
590 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
591 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
592
5935.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
594 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
595 chdir without breaking @INC.
596 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
597 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
598 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
599 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
600 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
601 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
602
603 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
604 change.
605 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
606 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
607 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
608 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
609 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
610 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
611 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
612 backporting
613 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
614 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
615 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
616 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
617 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
618 @MM::ISA does that itself.
619 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
620 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
621 explicitly required MM_Unix.
622 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
623 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
624 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
625 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
626 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
627 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
628 to EU::MM.
629 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.

645 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
646 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
647 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
648 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
649 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
