- Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
0.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
- On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
linked. [Jan Dubois]
- On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
- In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
$Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
- Add 'haiku' as a Unix-like platform. [Ingo Weinhold]
0.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008
- Added 'gnu' and 'gnukfreebsd' as Unix variants. [Niko Tyni]
- Brought in some VMS fixes from bleadperl: "Correct and complete
CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
[Craig Berry]
0.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
- Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
- Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
0.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
- Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see]
- Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
ignored. [Robert May]
0.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
- Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
as part of the perl core.
- Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
- From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
Steve Peters]
0.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
- When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
- Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
0.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
- Various OS/2 fixes:
+ Put .LIB file near .DEF file
+ Got library-file building working better
+ Handled libperl_overrides better
[Ilya Zakharevich]
- On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
- Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
$Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
- Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
command line. [Randy W. Sims]
0.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
- Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
E. Malmberg]
0.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
- When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
(e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
- More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
John E. Malmberg]
0.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
- Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
- Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
A. Berry]
- Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
0.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
- Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
- Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
- Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
platform-independant way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
0.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
- Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
E. Malmberg]
0.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
- Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
0.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
- In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
- Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
$Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
[Curt Tilmes]
- For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
$Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
- Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
0.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
- Added a licensing statement to [Spotted by Chip
0.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
- Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
where they're very different.
- Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
Peter Prymmer]
0.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
- Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
0.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
- Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
0.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
- Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
[Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
- Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
and so on. [Randy Sims]
- Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
compile(). [Randy Sims]
0.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
- Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
0.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
- Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
- Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
0.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
- Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
does a much better job than the split() we were using.
0.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
- Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
should be quoted.
- The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
0.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
- Fixed a bug in .../Platform/, in which compile() was
ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
- Fixed a bug in .../Platform/, in which output files were
being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
0.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
- Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
patching help from Randy Sims.
