2 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
3 to using multiple -e's.
4 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
5 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
6 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
7 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
8 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)

11 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
12 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
13 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
14 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
15 the basic.t test on Windows.

18 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
19 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
20 alter your manifest.
21 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
22 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
23 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
24 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
25 around 6.06_01.
26 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
27 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
28 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
29 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
30 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
31 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
32 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

346.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
35 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
36 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
37 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
38 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
39 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
40 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
41 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
42 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
43 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
44 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
45 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
46 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
47 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
48 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
49 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
50 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
51 sometimes don't get installed.
52 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
53 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
54 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
55 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
56
576.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
58 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
59 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
60 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
61 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
62 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
63 Fixed.
64 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
65 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
66 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
67 (Stas Bekman)
68 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
69 (Craig Berry)
70 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
71 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
72 miserably.
73 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
74
756.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
76 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
77 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
78 Just on OS/2.
79
806.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
81 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
82 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
83 to skip installing a file.
84 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
85 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
86 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
87 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
88 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
89 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
90 removed. No longer relevent.
91 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
92 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
93 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
94 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
95 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
96 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
97 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
98 properly before. (Craig Berry)
99 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
100 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
101 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
102 reading.
103 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
104 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
105 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
106 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
107 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
108
109# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
110# so much change between 6.05 and now.

113 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
114 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
115 warning because of this.
116 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
117 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
118 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
119 Worked around.
120 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
121 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
122
1236.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
124 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
125 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
126 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
127 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
128 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
129 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
130 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
131 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
132 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
133 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
134 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
135 Missing since 5.6.1.
136 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
137 command line lengths.
138 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
139 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
140 eof() not honor tied handles.
141 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
142 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
143
1446.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
145 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
146 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
147 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
148 to think modules weren't installed.
149 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
150 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
151 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
152 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
153 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
154 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
155 warn_if_old_packlist().
156 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
157 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
158 in the first place.
159 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
160 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
161 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
162 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
163 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
164 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
165 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
166 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
167 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
168 expansion
169 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
170 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
171 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
172 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
173 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
174 MakeMaker.
175 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
176 - Added compile & POD test
177 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
178 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
179 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
180 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
181 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
182 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
183 [perl #21526]
184
1856.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
186 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
187 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
188 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
189 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
190 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
191 fixpath() work again.
192
1936.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
194 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
195 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
196 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
197 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
198 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
199 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
200 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
201 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
202 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
203 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
204 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
205 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
206 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
207 using that.
208 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
209 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
210 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
211 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
212 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
213 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
214 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
215 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
216 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
217 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
218 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
219 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
220 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
221 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
222 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
223 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
224 by default.
225 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
226 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
227 - Improved DISTNAME docs
228 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
229 * Documented dist()
230 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
231 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
232 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
233 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
234 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
235 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
236 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
237 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
238 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
239 of the clean target.
240 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
241 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
242 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
243 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
244 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
245 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
246 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
247 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
248 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
249 target.
250 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
251 they come first.
252 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
253 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
254 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
255 init_platform().
256 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
257 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
258 init_VERSION().
259 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
260 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
261
262 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
263 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
264 init_others() to init_platform()
265 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
266 init_platform()
267 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
268 constants() to init_platform()
269
270 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
271 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
272 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
273 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
274 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
275 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
276 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
277 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
278 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
279
280 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
281 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
282 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
283 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
284 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
285 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
286 init_VERSION
287 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
288 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
289 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
290
291 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
292 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
293 Everything else was redundant.
294
295 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
296 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
297 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
298 into init_linker().
299 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
300 MM_VMS_VERSION.
301 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
302 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
303 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
304 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
305 overrides.
306 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
307 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
308 unportable part of the realclean target.
309 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
310 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
311 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
312 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
313 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
314 is explicitly set to empty.
315 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
316 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
317 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
318 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
319 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
320 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
321 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
322 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
323 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
324 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
325 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
326 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
327 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
328 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
329 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
330 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
331 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
332 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
333 dont_execute arguments.
334 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
335 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
336 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
337 commands.
338 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
339 be pointless.
340 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
341 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
342 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
343 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
344
3456.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
346 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
347 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
348
3496.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
350 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
351 right.
352 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
353 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
354 - Documented the LD flag.
355 * Documented prompt()
356 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
357 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
358 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
359 (bleadperl 17488)
360 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
361 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
362 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
363 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
364 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
365 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
366 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
367 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
368 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
369 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
370 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)
371

373 - Documented that we're clamping down on cargo-cult MakeMaker
374 programming.
375 - Eased up the parameter verification to leave errant values alone.

3906.01 Thu May 30 14:48:57 EDT 2002
391 - MacOS Classic fixes from Pudge: recursive make repair,
392 post_initialize() now used, DEFINE & INC work with relative paths,
393 removed dead hybrid method/function call code.
394 * WriteMakefile now a bit more tolerant of wrong arguments, it will
395 warn and try to soldier on rather than just vomiting.
396 - Netware whitespace nits (bleadperl@16811)
397 - Netware Perl version number tag when building dynamic libraries
398 needs to match the current perl version instead of being hard coded
399 (a mutation of bleadperl@16851)
400 - OS/2 bug in TEST_F target found by John Poltorak (bleadperl@16839)
401 - README in 6.00 still declared this as alpha.

4075.96_01 Wed May 22 19:11:09 EDT 2002
408 - Fixed ExtUtils::testlib so it doesn't taint @INC.
409 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command so it groks % shell wildcard on VMS.
410 [RT 625]
411 - MM now depends on Test::Harness 2.00 on VMS else tests with -T
412 won't work, command line too long.
413 - Added Craig's patch to fix limited level VMSs in the core.
414

548 inside a distdir.

652 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
653 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
654 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.

719 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
720 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
721 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
722 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
723 backporting
724 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
725 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
726 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
727 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
728 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
729 @MM::ISA does that itself.
730 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
731 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
732 explicitly required MM_Unix.
733 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
734 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
735 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
736 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
