126.47_01 Tue Oct 14 12:38:05 EDT 2008
13 New Features
14 * Added optional parameter MIN_PERL_VERSION, to define minimal
15 required perl version for dependency checks and to pass on to
16 META.yml and ppd files. [rt.cpan.org 28374]
17 Thanks to David Golden, Alexandr Ciornii (chorny) and Martin Becker

19 Bug Fixes
20 * Guard against a path to Perl with a space in it.
21 From Max Maischein. [bleadperl@32905]
22
23 Test Fixes
24 - Small fix for VOS from Paul Green [bleadperl@33259]
25
26 Other
27 * $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision, $ExtUtils::MM_Unix::Revision and
28 $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision are all now based on $VERSION. You
29 shouldn't be using them for anything anyway.

33 Bug Fixes
34 - Fix META_MERGE for more than one level of hashes. [rt.cpan.org 39348]
35
36
376.45_02 Sun Sep 7 13:59:14 PDT 2008
38 Bug Fixes
39 - Updated bundled ExtUtils::Command to 1.14, ExtUtils::Install to
40 1.50 and ExtUtils::Manifest to 1.54
41
42 Test Fixes
b5b9b385 43 - t/writemakefile_args.t had the wrong skip amount causing failures

476.45_01 Sat Sep 6 03:19:03 PDT 2008
48 New Features
49 * META_ADD and META_MERGE have been added to manipulate the META.yml.
50 Thanks to Adriano Ferreira. [rt.cpan.org 21282]
51 - META.yml now includes configure_requires ExtUtils::MakeMaker by
52 default. [rt.cpan.org 32337]
53 - META.yml now excludes t/ and inc/ from indexing by default.
54 - META.yml license is now "unknown" instead of undef if a LICENSE is not
55 given.
56 - META.yml now conforms to version 1.4 of the spec.
57
58 Bug Fixes
59 - Make @MM_Sections and @Overridable global again. It's an undocumented
60 but used way to manipulate MakeMaker behavior. [rt.cpan.org 36047]
61
62 Portability
63 * Changed the name/dmake test in MM_Win32.pm to use regexs to that
64 they are able to handle Perl on a Stick absolute paths.
65
66
676.44 Thu Feb 28 16:06:04 PST 2008
68 Bug Fixes
69 * Updated bundled ExtUtils::Install to 1.45 which should fix some
70 Cygwin issues. [rt.cpan.org 33291]

736.43_01 Tue Jan 1 16:06:47 PST 2008
74 Bug Fixes
75 * Change the "is this really a Perl core library directory" checks to
76 look for strict instead of Exporter. Now that Exporter is on CPAN
77 it can wind up in site_perl.
78 * split_command() will now set aside a little more space for macro
79 expansion. This should help on systems with cramped command line
80 lengths. Specifically, Pugs on Win32. [rt.cpan.org 20145]
81
82 Installation
83 * MakeMaker would not install if the installed MakeMaker was too old,
84 like on 5.6.1. The installation process was still using the
85 installed MakeMaker in a few places. This has been fixed.
86 [rt.cpan.org 24746]
87
88 OS X
89 * "make dist" will no longer bundle up resource fork files (._foo).
90 [rt.cpan.org 29525]
91
92 Docs
93 * The documentation of VERSION_FROM was recommending vstrings (1.2.3)
94 which have never worked right.
95 * The documentation for the accepted values of LICENSE moved to
96 Module::Build::API. [rt.cpan.org 32020]
97
98 Tests
99 * The compilation test was testing the installed modules, not the
100 about-to-be-installed.
101 * xs.t would fail if ExtUtils::CBuilder was not installed.
102
103 Misc
104 * Cleanups brought to you by no more 5.5 compatibility!
105 * MakeMaker is now perlcritic clean at severity level 5... except
106 the really silly ones.
107 * DIE use vars DIE!
108 * Added some resources to the META.yml

1106.42 Fri Dec 7 17:00:14 PST 2007
111 Bug Fixes
112 - 6.33 moved PREREQ_FATAL to happen after CONFIGURE. This meant if
113 your CONFIGURE use a prereq it would fail and no PREREQ_FATAL
114 message would be displayed.
115 - Put the "nicetext" functionality back, VMS needs it to deal with
116 other people's custom make. But rename it to the more
117 accurate maketext_filter(), test it and fix a bug where it would
118 stop processing if it saw a macro declaration.

1206.40 Thu Dec 6 03:00:47 PST 2007
121 Bug Fixes
122 - Remove the dubious nicetext() Makefile formatting hack to account for
123 a lack of space between the target and colon needed on VMS. This
124 interfered with META.yml creation on VMS and possibly other output.
125 - Fix the remaining targets which don't have a space between the target
126 and the colon.

1316.37_03 Mon Nov 26 14:15:34 PST 2007
132 Tests
133 - parse_version.t had wrong test count when version.pm isn't installed.
134 - Fixed some warnings in the XS module we're using for testing.
135 - "our $VERSION" test in parse_version.t was never running
136 - Quoting uses of 1.2.3 style versions in parse_version.t to protect
137 older perls.
138
139 Portability
140 - Moved the minimum required version up to 5.6.0.

RGS
1426.37_02 Sun Nov 25 23:33:14 PST 2007
143 Test Improvements
144 - Added a test for a basic XS build.
145
146 Bug Fixes
147 - A refactoring in 6.37_01 broke XS compilation.
148
1496.37_01 Sun Nov 25 17:05:53 PST 2007
150 Improvements
151 - Upgraded the META.yml to version 1.3 of the spec (which really
152 doesn't change anything). Thanks bdfoy.
153 - MakeMaker now always includes the required 'author' field in
154 the META.yml even if it's undef to comply with the META.yml spec.
155 - Updated ExtUtils-Install to latest version (1.44)
156 - Unified the version numbers of all modules.
157
158 Test Fixes
159 - cd() test on VMS used non-native paths. [bleadperl 31534]
160 - Removed uses of "no_plan" in tests to remain compatible with
161 old versions of Test::Harness.
162 - writemakefile_args.t had the wrong test count if version.pm isn't
163 installed.
164
165 Bug Fixes
166 - $VERSION detection code would be confused by "sub version"
167 [rt.cpan.org 30747]
168 - LINKTYPE=static will now be propagated to child builds.
169 [bleadperl 31761]
170
171 Portability Fixes
172 - Add "dragonfly" to the list of BSDish operating systems
173 - BSD detection code would not pick up bsdos or internix
174 - Fix detection of shared libperl on NetBSD [bleadperl 31526]
175
176
1776.36 Tue Jul 3 01:06:40 PDT 2007
178 Test Fixes
179 - version.pm prior to 0.7203 caused Foo->VERSION to reformat
180 $Foo::VERSION. This caused prereq.t to fail.
181
1826.35 Sun Jul 1 20:53:38 PDT 2007
183 New Features
184 * MakeMaker will now try to "use version" before parsing $VERSION.
185 This allows "$VERSION = qv(1.2.3)" to work.
186
187 Test Fixes
188 - writemakefile_args.t now works with older versions of version.pm
189
1906.34 Sat Jun 30 11:06:54 CDT 2007
191 Test Fixes
192 - Accidentally hard coded the version of strict.pm [rt.cpan.org 27838]
193
1946.33 Fri Jun 29 17:15:34 CDT 2007
195 New Features
196 * VERSION now accepts version objects without warning.
197 [rt.cpan.org 26075]
198
199 Bug Fixes
200 - Properly not installing MANIFEST.SKIP when ExtUtils::Manifest is not
201 being installed. [rt.cpan.org 21318]
202 - fixin() no longer clobbers $/ [rt.cpan.org 26234]
203 - Fixed bug finding cross-compiled perls [bleadperl 31404]
204 - Looking up to 8 levels up to find uninstalled perls
205 [bleadperl 30932]
206 * A test failure in a sub-project would not cause "make test" to
207 fail. [rt.cpan.org 27804]
208
209 Windows
210 - Embed manifest files in EXEs and DLLs when building with VC++ 8.x
211 [bleadperl #29266] [rt.cpan.org 26208]
212 - Improved the subdir command code so DIR can do more than one level
213 down. [rt.cpan.org 25180]
214 - Fix static builds on Win32 by using -DPERLDLL [bleadperl 31229]
215
216 VMS
217 - Use linker flags rather than compiler flags to determine if the
218 perl sharable image was linked debug. This keeps OPTIMIZE from
219 confusing things. [rt.cpan.org 25268]
220 - Accidental use of $\ in a regex. [bleadperl 30521]
221
222 BSD
223 - If calling perl causes MakeMaker to emit warnings, then it
224 cannot find the location of its binary. [rt.cpan.org 23178]
225
226 Doc Improvements
227 - Typo fixes. $(TOUNIX) -> $(TO_UNIX). [rt.cpan.org 23495]
228 - The example for setting $VERSION from $Revision$ in SVN was
229 incorrect. (Thanks to ROBERTMAY@cpan.org) [rt.cpan.org 26995]
230 - Document what's wrong with PREFIX and what to use instead.
231 [rt.cpan.org 12919]
232 - Improve the PREREQ_FATAL docs to make it really clear that you
233 do NOT want to use this!
234
235 Misc
236 - Provide information during the install about whether we're using the
237 installed or provided dependency (ie. ExtUtils::Command).
238 - Updated included versions of ExtUtils::Manifest and Command.
239 - Add .bak and .old to veryclean [rt.cpan.org 21284]
240 - Improved the PREREQ_FATAL message.
241
2426.32 Wed Feb 21 07:59:57 PST 2007
243 New Features
244 - WriteEmptyMakefile() is now exportable upon request.
245
246 Bug Fixes
247 - Set binmode() when writing to files in Command.t for operating
248 systems which need that sort of thing. [bleadperl #29578]
249 - Fixed a minor duplication in manifypod_target(). [rt.cpan.org 22149]
250
251 Test Fixes
252 - The build_man.t test would fail if your Perl is configured to not
253 generate man pages ($Config{installman3dir} is set to none).
254
255 Doc Improvements
256 - Made the home dir install examples a little more friendly to non-Unix
257 folks.
258
259 Misc
260 - miniperl no longer has the Win32 functions.
261 - Turn on "use strict" where it was missing.
262

SP
2636.31 Mon Oct 9 16:54:47 PDT 2006
264 - Update our META.yml to version 1.2 of the spec.
265 * Update the SEE ALSO to mention Module::Build, Module::Install,
266 ExtUtils::ModuleMaker and Module::Starter.
267 - Fix ARCHITECTURE tag in PPD generation for 5.8 (patch taken from
268 ActiveState 819). [rt.cpan.org 20566]
269 * Bring ExtUtils::Manifest up to 1.48
270
58d32538
RGS
2716.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
272 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
273 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
274 replaced with something better next version.
275 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
276 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
277 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
278 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
279 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
280 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
281 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
282 same place?"
283 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
284 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
285
2866.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
287 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
288
2896.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
290 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
291 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
292 empty.
293 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
294 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
295 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
296 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
297 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
298 - $Revision was broken.
299 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
300 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
301 - Clarified that test_f() exits.
302

3036.30_01 Tue Aug 16 23:53:27 PDT 2005
304 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
305 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
306 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
307 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
308 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
309 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
310 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
311 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
312 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
313 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
314 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
315 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
316 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
317 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
318 version.
319 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
320 text to the generated META.yml.
321 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
322 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
323 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
324 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
325 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
326 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
327 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
328 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
329 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
330 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
331 dmake or nmake.

3336.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
334 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
335 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
336 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
337 Test::Harness.
338
41e5fcb0
RGS
3396.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
340 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
341 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
342 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
343 modules.
344 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
345 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
346

RGS
3476.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
348 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
349 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
350 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
351 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
352 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
353 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
354 (bleadperl@24185)
355 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
356
7292dc67
RGS
3576.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
358 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
359 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
360
3616.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
362 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
363 passed the file they were to generate.
364 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
365 now documented.
366 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
367
3686.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
369
3706.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
371 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
372 version is found.
373 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
374
3756.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
376 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
377 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
378 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
379
3806.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
381 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
382 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
383 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
384 previous alpha releases.
385
3866.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
387 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
388 and better.
389 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
390 now possible.
391
3926.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
393 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
394 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
395 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
396 XSUBPP alone.
397 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
398 make commands too long on VMS.
399 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
400 .exists files everywhere.
401 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
402 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
403 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
404 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
405 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
406 Module::Install
407
4086.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
409 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
410 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
411 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
412 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
413 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
414
4156.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
416 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
417 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
418 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
419 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
420 it yet. I'll do that next release.
421
4226.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
423 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
424 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
425 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
426 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
427 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
428
4296.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
430 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
431
4326.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
433 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
434 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
435 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
436 things like SVN's perl bindings.
437
4386.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
439 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
440 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
441 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
442 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
443 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
444 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
445 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
446 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
447 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
448 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
449
4506.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
451 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
452 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
453 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
454 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
455 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
456 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
457 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
458 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
459 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
460 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.

463 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
464 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
465 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
466
4676.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
468 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
469 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
470 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
471 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
472 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
473 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
474
4756.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
476 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
477 installing some Tk modules.
478
4796.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
480 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
481 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.

4836.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
484 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
485 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
486 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
487
4886.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
489 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
490 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
491 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
492 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
493 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
494 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
495 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.

496 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
497 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 498 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 499 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.

501 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
502 [Slaven Rezic]
503 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
504 [Slaven Rezic]
505 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
506 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]

507 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
508 [Ilya Zakharevich]
509 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
510 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
511 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
512 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
513 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
514 Module::Build instead.
515 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
516 VMS. [rt 4675]
517 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
518 existing uses.
519 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
520 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
521 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
522 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
523 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
524 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
525 [rt 4687]
526 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
527 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
528 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
529 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
530 VMS. [rt 4676]
531 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.

af7522e5 5346.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 535 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
536 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
537 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
538 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
539 for backwards compatibility.
540 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
541 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

544 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
545 take a more conservative approach.
546 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
547 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
548 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]

553 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
554 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
555 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
556 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
557 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
558 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
559
5606.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
561 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
562 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
563 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
564 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
565 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
566 Perls.
567 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
568 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
569 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
570 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
571 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
572 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
573 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
574 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
575 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
576 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
577 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
578 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
579 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
580 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
581 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
582 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
583 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
584 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
585 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
586 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
587 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
588 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
589 November and nobody noticed.
590 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
591 by the user.

596 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
597 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
598 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
599 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
600 (Orton Yves)
601 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
602 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
603 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
604 ndbgperl.exe.
605 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

609 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
610 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
611 [Sreeji K Das]
612 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
613 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
614 bleadperl@20530)
615 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
616 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

619 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
620 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
621
6226.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
623 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
624 itself and the metafile documentation.
625 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
626 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
627 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
628 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
629 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
630 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

633 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
634 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
635 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
636 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.

639 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
640 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
641 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
642 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
643 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
644 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
645 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
646 to INST_*.
647 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
648 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
649 really bizarre way.
650
6516.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
652 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
653 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
654 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
655 * Noting where to find make in the README
656 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
657 on Windows.

6596.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
660 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
661 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
662 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
663 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
664 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
665 This appears to be a rather old bug.
666 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
667 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
668 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
669 of prepending a .. onto it.
670 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
671 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
672 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
673 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
674 repeating the list all over the code.
675 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
676 with DESTDIR set.
677 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
678 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
679 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
680 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
681 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
682 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
683 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
684 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
685 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
686 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
687 when it didn't.
688
6896.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
690 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
691 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
692 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
693 to using multiple -e's.
694 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
695 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
696 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
697 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
698 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073

699 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous

713 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
714 alter your manifest.
715 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
716 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
717 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)

730 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
731 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
732 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
733 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
734 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
735 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
736 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
737 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
738 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
739 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
740 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
741 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
742 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
743 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
744 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
745 sometimes don't get installed.
746 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
747 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
748 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
749 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)

754 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
755 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
756 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
757 Fixed.
758 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
759 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
760 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
761 (Stas Bekman)
762 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
763 (Craig Berry)
764 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
765 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
766 miserably.
767 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
768
7696.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
770 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
771 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
772 Just on OS/2.
773
7746.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
775 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
776 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
777 to skip installing a file.
778 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
779 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
780 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
781 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
782 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
783 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
784 removed. No longer relevent.
785 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
786 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
787 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
788 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
789 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
790 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
791 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
792 properly before. (Craig Berry)
793 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
794 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()

798 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
799 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.

807 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
808 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
809 warning because of this.
810 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
811 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
812 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
813 Worked around.
814 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
815 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
816
8176.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
818 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
819 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
820 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
821 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
822 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
823 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
824 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
825 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
826 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
827 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
828 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
829 Missing since 5.6.1.
830 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
831 command line lengths.
832 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
833 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
834 eof() not honor tied handles.
835 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
836 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
837
8386.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003

840 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
841 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
842 to think modules weren't installed.
843 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
844 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
845 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
846 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
847 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
848 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
849 warn_if_old_packlist().
850 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
851 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
852 in the first place.
853 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
854 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
855 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
856 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
857 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
858 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
859 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
860 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
861 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
862 expansion
863 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
864 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
865 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
866 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.

868 MakeMaker.

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

881 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
882 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
883 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to

8876.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
888 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
889 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
890 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
891 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
892 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
893 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
894 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
895 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
896 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
897 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
898 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
899 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
900 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
901 using that.
902 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
903 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
904 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
905 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
906 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
907 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
908 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
909 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
910 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
911 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
912 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
913 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
914 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
915 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
916 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
917 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
918 by default.
919 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
920 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
921 - Improved DISTNAME docs
922 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
923 * Documented dist()
924 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
925 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
926 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
927 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
928 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
929 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
930 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
931 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
932 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
933 of the clean target.
934 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
935 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
936 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
937 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
938 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
939 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
940 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
941 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
942 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
943 target.
944 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
945 they come first.
946 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
947 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
948 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
949 init_platform().
950 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
951 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
952 init_VERSION().
953 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
954 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
955
956 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
957 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
958 init_others() to init_platform()
959 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
960 init_platform()
961 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
962 constants() to init_platform()
963
964 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
965 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
966 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
967 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
968 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
969 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
970 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
971 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
972 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
973
974 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
975 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
976 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
977 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
978 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
979 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
980 init_VERSION
981 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
982 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
983 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
984
985 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
986 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
987 Everything else was redundant.
988
989 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
990 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
991 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
992 into init_linker().
993 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
994 MM_VMS_VERSION.
995 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
996 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
997 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
998 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
999 overrides.
1000 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
1001 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
1002 unportable part of the realclean target.
1003 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
1004 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
1005 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
1006 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
1007 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
1008 is explicitly set to empty.
1009 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
1010 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
1011 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
1012 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
1013 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
1014 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
1015 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
1016 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
1017 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
1018 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
1019 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
1020 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
1021 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
1022 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
1023 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
1024 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
1025 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
1026 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
1027 dont_execute arguments.
1028 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
1029 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
1030 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
1031 commands.
1032 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
1033 be pointless.
1034 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
1035 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
1036 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
1037 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
1038
10396.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
1040 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
1041 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
1042
10436.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
1044 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
1045 right.
1046 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
1047 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
1048 - Documented the LD flag.
1049 * Documented prompt()
1050 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
1051 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
1052 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
1053 (bleadperl 17488)
1054 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
1055 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
1056 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
1057 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
1058 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
1059 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
1060 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
1061 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
1062 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
1063 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
1064 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)

1291 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1292 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
1293 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
1294 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
1295 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
1296 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
1297 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
1298 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
1299 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
1300 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
1301 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
1302 broke this. Fixed.
1303 * Fixing installing on VMS.

1307 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
1308 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
1309 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
1310 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
1311 Compensating for the bug.
1312 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
1313 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests

1320 [[ API Changes ]]
1321 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
1322 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
1323 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
1324 not be updated.
1325 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
1326 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
1327
1328 [[ New Features ]]
1329 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
1330
1331 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1332 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
1333 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
1334 version installed
1335 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
1336 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
1337 of the tests from running.
1338 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
1339 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
1340 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
1341 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
1342 (bleadperl@14978)
1343 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
1344 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
1345 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
1346 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
1347 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
1348 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
1349 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
1350 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
1351 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
1352 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
1353 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.

1358 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
1359 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
1360 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
1361 more than five years).
1362 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
1363 see how its useful outside the core.
1364
1365 [[ New Features ]]
1366 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
1367 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
1368 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
1369 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
1370 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
1371
1372 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
1373 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
1374 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
1375 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
1376 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
1377 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
1378 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
1379
1380 [[ Doc Changes ]]
1381 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
1382 reflecting its odd behavior.
1383 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
1384 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
1385 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
1386
1387 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
1388 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
1389 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
1390 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
1391 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
1392 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
1393 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
1394 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
1395 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
1396 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
1397
13985.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
1399 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
1400 chdir without breaking @INC.
1401 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
1402 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
1403 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
1404 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
1405 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
1406 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
1407
1408 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
1409 change.
1410 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
1411 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
1412 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
1413 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
1414 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
1415 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
1416 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
1417 backporting
1418 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
1419 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
1420 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1421 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1422 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1423 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1424 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1425 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1426 explicitly required MM_Unix.
1427 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
1428 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1429 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1430 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
1431 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
1432 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
1433 to EU::MM.
1434 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
1435
14365.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002

1448 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
1449 work on Win32/5.6.1.
1450 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
1451 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
1452 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
1453 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
1454 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
1455 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
