Revision history for Perl extension ExtUtils::ParseXS.

2.13  Mon Oct  3 21:59:06 CDT 2005

 - Integrate a cleanup-related change from bleadperl that somehow
   never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]

2.12  Wed Aug 24 20:03:09 CDT 2005

 - On Win32, there was a DLL file we create during testing that we
   couldn't delete unless we closed it first, so testing failed when
   the deletiong was attempted.  This should now work (provided the
   version of perl is high enough to have DynaLoader::dl_unload_file()
   - I'm not sure what will happen otherwise). [Steve Hay]

 - Fix a spurious warning during testing about a variable that's used
   before it's initialized. [Steve Hay]

2.11  Mon Jun 13 23:00:23 CDT 2005

 - Make some variables global, to avoid some "will not stay shared"
   warnings at compile time. [Rafael Garcia-Suarez]

2.10  Mon May 30 21:29:44 CDT 2005

 - This module is being integrated into the perl core; the regression
   tests will now work properly when run as part of the core build.
   [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]

 - Added the ability to create output files with a suffix other than
   ".c", via the new "csuffix" option.  This gets the module working
   on Symbian. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]

 - Added the ability to put 'extern "C"' declarations in front of
   prototypes. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]

2.09  Sun Mar 27 11:11:49 CST 2005

 - Integrated change #18270 from the perl core, which fixed a problem
   in which xsubpp can make nested comments in C code (which is
   bad). [Nicholas Clark]

 - When no "MODULE ... PACKAGE ... PREFIX" line is found, it's now
   still a fatal error for ParseXS, but we exit with status 0, which
   is what the old xsubpp did and seems to work best with some modules
   like Win32::NetAdmin.  See RT ticket 11472. [Steve Hay]

2.08  Fri Feb 20 21:41:22 CST 2004

 - Fixed a problem with backslashes in file paths (e.g. C:\Foo\Bar.xs)
   disappearing in error messages. [Randy Sims, Steve Hay]

 - Did a little minor internal code cleanup in the
   ExtUtils::ParseXS::CountLines class, now other classes don't poke
   around in its package variables.

2.07  Sun Jan 25 17:01:52 CST 2004

 - We now use ExtUtils::CBuilder for testing the compile/build phase
   in the regression tests.  It's not necessary to have it for runtime
   usage, though.

 - Fixed a minor documentation error (look in 'Changes' for revision
   history, not 'changes.pod'). [Scott R. Godin]

2.06  Fri Dec 26 09:00:47 CST 2003

 - Some fixes in the regression tests for the AIX platform.

2.05  Mon Sep 29 10:33:39 CDT 2003

 - We no longer trim the directory portions from the "#line " comments
   in the generated C code.  This helps cooperation with many editors'
   auto-jump-to-error stuff. [Ross McFarland]

 - In some cases the PERL_UNUSED_VAR macro is needed to get rid of C
   compile-time warnings in generated code.  Since this eliminates so
   many warnings, turning on "-Wall -W" (or your platform's
   equivalent) can once again be helpful. [Ross McFarland]

 - Did a huge amount of variable-scoping cleanup, and it *still*
   doesn't compile under 'use strict;'.  Much progress was made
   though, and many scoping issues were fixed.

2.04  Thu Sep  4 13:10:59 CDT 2003

 - Added a COPYRIGHT section to the documentation.  [Spotted by Ville
   Skytta]

2.03  Sat Aug 16 17:49:03 CST 2003

 - Fixed a warning that occurs if a regular expression (buried deep
   within the bowels of the code here) fails.  [Spotted by Michael
   Schwern]

 - Fixed a testing error on Cygwin. [Reini Urban]

2.02  Sun Mar 30 18:20:12 CST 2003

 - Now that we know this module doesn't work (yet?) with perl 5.005,
   put a couple 'use 5.006' statements in the module & Makefile.PL so
   we're explicit about the dependency. [Richard Clamp]

2.01  Thu Mar 20 08:22:36 CST 2003

 - Allow -C++ flag for backward compatibility.  It's a no-op, and has
   been since perl5.003_07. [PodMaster]

2.00  Sun Feb 23 16:40:17 CST 2003

 - Tests now function under all three of the supported compilers on
   Windows environments. [Randy W. Sims]

 - Will now install to the 'core' perl module directory instead of to
   'site_perl' or the like, because this is the only place MakeMaker
   will look for the xsubpp script.

 - Explicitly untie and close the output file handle because ParseXS was
   holding the file handle open, preventing the compiler from opening
   it on Win32. [Randy W. Sims]

 - Added an '--output FILENAME' flag to xsubpp and changed ParseXS to use
   the named file in the #line directives when the output file has an
   extension other than '.c' (i.e. '.cpp'). [Randy W. Sims]

 - Added conditional definition of the PERL_UNUSED_VAR macro to the
   output file in case it's not already defined for backwards
   compatibility with pre-5.8 versions of perl. (Not sure if this is the
   best solution.) [Randy W. Sims]


1.99  Wed Feb  5 10:07:47 PST 2003

 - Version bump to 1.99 so it doesn't look like a 'beta release' to
   CPAN.pm.  No code changes, since I haven't had any bug reports.

 - Fixed a minor problem in the regression tests that was creating an
   XSTest..o file instead of XSTest.o


1.98_01  Mon Dec  9 11:50:41 EST 2002

 - Converted from ExtUtils::xsubpp in bleadperl

 - Basic set of regression tests written
