2 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
3 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
4 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
5
66.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
7 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
8 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
9 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
10 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
11 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
12 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
13
146.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
15 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
16 installing some Tk modules.
17
186.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
19 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
20 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
21
226.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
23 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
24 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
25 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
26
276.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
28 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
29 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
30 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
31 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
32 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
33 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
34 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.

35 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
36 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 37 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 38 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2

39 [Greg Matheson]
40 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
41 [Slaven Rezic]
42 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
43 [Slaven Rezic]
44 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
45 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
46 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
47 [Ilya Zakharevich]
48 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
49 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
50 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
51 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
52 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
53 Module::Build instead.
54 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
55 VMS. [rt 4675]
56 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
57 existing uses.
58 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
59 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
60 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
61 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
62 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
63 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
64 [rt 4687]
65 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
66 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
67 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
68 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
69 VMS. [rt 4676]
70 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
71 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 72
af7522e5 736.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 74 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
75 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
76 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
77 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
78 for backwards compatibility.
79 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
80 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

RGS
826.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
83 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
84 take a more conservative approach.
85 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
86 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
87 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
88 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
89 nmake [rt 4285 4301]

916.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
92 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
93 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
94 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
95 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
96 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
97 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
98
996.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
100 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
101 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
102 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
103 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
104 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
105 Perls.
106 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
107 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
108 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
109 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
110 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
111 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
112 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
113 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
114 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
115 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
116 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
117 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
118 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
119 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
120 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
121 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
122 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
123 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
124 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
125 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
126 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
127 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
128 November and nobody noticed.
129 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
130 by the user.
131 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
132 * Documented UNINST=1
133

1346.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
135 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
136 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
137 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
138 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
139 (Orton Yves)
140 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
141 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
142 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
143 ndbgperl.exe.
144 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.
145
2c91f887
JH
1466.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
147 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
148 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
149 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
150 [Sreeji K Das]
151 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
152 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
153 bleadperl@20530)
154 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
155 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)
156

1576.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
158 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
159 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
160
1616.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
162 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
163 itself and the metafile documentation.
164 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
165 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
166 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
167 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
168 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
169 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

1716.13 Thu Jul 31 16:48:01 PDT 2003
172 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
173 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
174 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
175 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.
176

1776.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
178 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
179 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
180 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
181 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
182 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
183 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
184 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
185 to INST_*.
186 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
187 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
188 really bizarre way.
189
1906.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
191 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
192 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
193 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
194 * Noting where to find make in the README
195 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
196 on Windows.

197
1986.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
199 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
200 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
201 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
202 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
203 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
204 This appears to be a rather old bug.
205 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
206 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
207 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
208 of prepending a .. onto it.
209 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
210 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
211 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
212 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
213 repeating the list all over the code.
214 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
215 with DESTDIR set.
216 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
217 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
218 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
219 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
220 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
221 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
222 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
223 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
224 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
225 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
226 when it didn't.
227
2286.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
229 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
230 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
231 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
232 to using multiple -e's.
233 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
234 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
235 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
236 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
237 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
238 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
239 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
240 $(ECHO).
241 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'
e3aa3ecb 242
c2990482
MS
2436.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
244 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
245 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
246 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
247 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
248 the basic.t test on Windows.
249

MS
2506.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
251 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
252 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
253 alter your manifest.
254 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
255 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
256 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
257 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
258 around 6.06_01.
259 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
260 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
261 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
262 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
263 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
264 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
265 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)
266

2676.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
268 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
269 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
270 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
271 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
272 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
273 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
274 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
275 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
276 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
277 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
278 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
279 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
280 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
281 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
282 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
283 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
284 sometimes don't get installed.
285 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
286 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
287 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
288 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
289
2906.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
291 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
292 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
293 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
294 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
295 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
296 Fixed.
297 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
298 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
299 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
300 (Stas Bekman)
301 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
302 (Craig Berry)
303 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
304 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
305 miserably.
306 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
307
3086.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
309 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
310 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
311 Just on OS/2.
312
3136.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
314 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
315 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
316 to skip installing a file.
317 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
318 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
319 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
320 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
321 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
322 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
323 removed. No longer relevent.
324 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
325 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
326 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
327 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
328 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
329 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
330 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
331 properly before. (Craig Berry)
332 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
333 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
334 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
335 reading.
336 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
337 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
338 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
339 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
340 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
341
342# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
343# so much change between 6.05 and now.

MS
346 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
347 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
348 warning because of this.
349 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
350 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
351 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
352 Worked around.
353 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
354 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
355
3566.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
357 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
358 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
359 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
360 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
361 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
362 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
363 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
364 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
365 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
366 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
367 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
368 Missing since 5.6.1.
369 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
370 command line lengths.
371 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
372 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
373 eof() not honor tied handles.
374 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
375 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
376
3776.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
378 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
379 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
380 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
381 to think modules weren't installed.
382 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
383 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
384 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
385 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
386 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
387 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
388 warn_if_old_packlist().
389 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
390 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
391 in the first place.
392 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
393 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
394 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
395 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
396 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
397 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
398 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
399 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
400 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
401 expansion
402 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
403 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
404 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS

407 MakeMaker.

411 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
412 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
413 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
414 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).

419 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
420 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
421 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
422 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
423 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
424 fixpath() work again.
425
4266.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
427 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
428 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
429 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
430 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
431 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
432 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
433 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
434 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
435 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
436 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
437 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
438 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
439 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
440 using that.
441 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
442 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
443 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
444 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
445 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
446 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
447 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
448 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
449 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
450 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
451 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
452 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
453 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
454 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
455 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
456 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
457 by default.
458 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
459 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
460 - Improved DISTNAME docs
461 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
462 * Documented dist()
463 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
464 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
465 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
466 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
467 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
468 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
469 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
470 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
471 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
472 of the clean target.
473 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
474 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
475 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
476 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
477 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
478 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
479 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
480 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
481 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
482 target.
483 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
484 they come first.
485 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
486 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
487 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
488 init_platform().
489 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
490 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
491 init_VERSION().
492 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
493 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
494
495 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
496 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
497 init_others() to init_platform()
498 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
499 init_platform()
500 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
501 constants() to init_platform()
502
503 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
504 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
505 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
506 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
507 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
508 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
509 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
510 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
511 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
512
513 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
514 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
515 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
516 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
517 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
518 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
519 init_VERSION
520 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
521 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
522 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
523
524 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
525 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
526 Everything else was redundant.
527
528 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
529 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
530 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
531 into init_linker().
532 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
533 MM_VMS_VERSION.
534 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
535 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
536 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
537 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
538 overrides.
539 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
540 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
541 unportable part of the realclean target.
542 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
543 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
544 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
545 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
546 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
547 is explicitly set to empty.
548 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
549 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
550 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
551 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
552 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
553 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
554 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
555 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
556 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
557 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
558 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
559 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
560 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
561 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
562 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
563 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
564 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
565 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
566 dont_execute arguments.
567 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
568 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
569 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
570 commands.
571 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
572 be pointless.
573 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
574 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
575 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
576 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
577
5786.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002

5826.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
583 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
584 right.
585 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
586 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
587 - Documented the LD flag.
588 * Documented prompt()
589 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
590 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
591 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
592 (bleadperl 17488)

594 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
595 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
596 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
597 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
598 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
599 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
600 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
601 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
602 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
603 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)

837 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
838 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
839 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
840 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
841 broke this. Fixed.
842 * Fixing installing on VMS.

8445.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
845 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
846 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
847 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
848 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
849 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
850 Compensating for the bug.
851 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
852 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
853
854 [[ Doc Changes ]]
855 - Expanding Known Good list
856 - Adding Known Programs to README
857
8585.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
859 [[ API Changes ]]
860 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
861 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
862 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
863 not be updated.
864 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
865 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
866
867 [[ New Features ]]
868 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
869
870 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
871 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
872 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
873 version installed
874 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
875 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
876 of the tests from running.
877 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
878 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
879 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
880 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
881 (bleadperl@14978)
882 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
883 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
884 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
885 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
886 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
887 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
888 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
889 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
890 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
891 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
892 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
893
8945.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
895 [[ API Changes ]]
479d2113 896 - htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
f6d6199c
MS
897 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
898 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
899 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
900 more than five years).
901 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
902 see how its useful outside the core.
903
904 [[ New Features ]]
905 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
906 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
907 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
908 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
909 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
910
911 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
912 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
913 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
914 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
915 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
916 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
917 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
918
919 [[ Doc Changes ]]
920 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
921 reflecting its odd behavior.
922 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
923 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
924 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
925
926 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
927 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
928 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
929 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
930 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
931 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
932 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
933 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
934 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
935 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
936
9375.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
938 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
939 chdir without breaking @INC.
940 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
941 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
942 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
943 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
944 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
945 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
946
947 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
948 change.
949 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
950 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
951 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
952 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
953 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
954 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
955 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
956 backporting
957 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
958 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
959 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
960 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
961 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
962 @MM::ISA does that itself.
963 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
964 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
965 explicitly required MM_Unix.
966 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
967 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
968 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
969 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
970 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
971 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
972 to EU::MM.
973 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
974
9755.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
976 - No longer requiring Test::More
977 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 978 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
979 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
980 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
981 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
982 No longer obsolete
983 - Little test fixes

9855.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
986 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
987 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
988 work on Win32/5.6.1.
989 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
990 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
991 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
992 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
993 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
994 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
995
9965.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
997 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

1000 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
1001 * Backported to 5.6.1
1002 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
1003 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
1004 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
1005 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
