	Started on CPAN with B-C-1.04_12
	The Perl compiler was in CORE from alpha4 until Perl 5.9.4
	and worked quite fine with Perl 5.6 and 5.8

1.35	2011-10-02 rurban
	tested from 5.6.2 until 5.15.3
	* C: allow debugging without -MOd=C
	improve package_pv detection for methods, two more tests.
	detect previously missing packages within the main sourcefile
	-O1 now includes also -fav-init2 and -fppaddr, which are all
	stable. -O2 string handling (-fro-inc) still unstable.
	added B::REGEXP::save for \$qr (Encode::Alias), issue 71. Still
	  not fully fixed. Encode::Alias unusable.
	fixed empty HV assertions since 5.15, new HV default keys = 7
	  (3,4,36), but still unsolved 5.15 problem with endless loop in
	  Perl_hfree_next_entry hv.c:1716 (3,4,36)
	workaround 5.15.2 inability to walk with from %INC deleted
	  stashes, also workaround adding already deleted DynaLoader.
	CORE patch [perl #100138] for new 5.15.2-5.15.3 DynaLoader XS_INTERNAL
	  problem required (16,29,44,45). Fixed with 5.15.4
	use proper PL_envgv for *main::ENV which is inited in perl_parse
	  (fixes e.g. CGI apps using run-time values, not compile-time)
	* CC (1.11): allow debugging without -MOd=CC
	Try to jump from last to unknown label, put labels also onto cxstack.
	Fixed cc_last.t test 4, jump out of anonsub, but not across C
	  functions yet (this is disallowed in C, need to split).
	* C.xs: added B::REGEXP::EXTFLAGS (missing from B).
	* perlcc (2.12): omit also inc_version_list dirs from perlcc as
	  leaving them in could lead to unexpected crashes
	* t/cc_last.t: Fixed test 2. This works compiled and uncompiled,
	  but the returned errcode is not compared. Skip if so.
	* t/TESTS: add all 5 possible method/sub calls to test 35 =>01234.
	  See http://blogs.perl.org/users/rurban/2011/06/how-perl-calls-subs-and-methods.html

	  5.10: new minlen check aborts
	* ByteLoader security: added strconst maxsize flag to bytecode.pl
	  for buffer overflow checks.
	* Bytecode -DA for devel assertions of absolute or probably wrong opindex
	  pointers (nyi)
	* disassemble, B::Assembler: commented output, similar to -MO=Bytecode,-S
	  Added backwards option --bare for older assemblers.
	* assemble, disassemble: added pod
	* B::Disassembler:
	  Provide default printers print_insn (commented) and print_insn_bare.

	  Engine not initialized though.
	* Hangs in C/CC executables at an op_free(PL_main_root) trying to free
          the static op structs because the earlier op_seq -1 hack is gone now,
	  and opt_static was replaced by opt_latefree. Set now opt_latefree = 1.

Nick Ing-Simmons <nik@tiuk.ti.com>  1998-12-05 11:44:28
    @2452 B.xs had its own code to calculate hash() which differed from
    PERL_HASH in hv.h - so all saved HV's were mangled - including %INC
    which meant that run-time require was re-done.

    @2378 More C.pm tweaks
      Save globs even if we have saved cv itself before - may be imported.

      While we don't save "bootstrap" CV we need to provide a stub,
      so that if we require it later we don't fall through and attempt
      to DynaLoad module again.

      Attempt to save %INC so that "require" does not reload things
      we have compiled-in (does not work right yet - seems to be due
      to PL_incgv being created in perl_parse() current scheme setting
      GvHV() is "better" than saving the glob, but still does not
      work as I expect).

Nick Ing-Simmons <nik@tiuk.ti.com>  1998-11-27 22:10:27
    @2332 Handle INIT list in C.pm
    1. Provide init_av() from B.xs
    2. Export it in B.pm
    3. Use it in C.pm
    Also disable some pruning in savecv() which seems to undo
    my previous patch.
    Experimental feature - save pathnames of .so files in easily
    grep-able form for use in wrapper to feed to linker.

    @585 More compiler tweaks.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1998-02-20 18:23:47
    @565 Remove compiler files from their old lib/B locations. The compiler
    now builds by default (without the byteperl executable so far) and
    seems to work at least minimally.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1998-02-20 18:05:33
    @564 Move lib/B/... and lib/[BO].pm over to where they should be,
    under ext/B.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1998-02-20 17:54:58
    @563 Start getting compiler to work when built with the core.
    [Still won't work as of this change.]

	* Merge perlext/Compiler/... into mainline. Some files move to
    ext/B/..., some to lib/B/..., O.pm and B.pm go in lib and some
    move to the base perl directory (e.g. headers). Will need some
    cleaning up before it builds properly, I would guess.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1998-02-20 16:39:38
	* [compiler] Win32 changes from Sarathy, tweaked slightly by me.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1998-02-17 17:50:50
	* Assorted changes to the compiler

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1997-12-17 10:59:40
	* Fix typo in compiler B/C.pm.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1997-12-10 18:33:53
	* Start overhauling compiler. It was working at least minimally
    right up until the final tweak of B.xs to add threadsv_names
    at which point building it provokes a seg fault in perl while
    doing the xsubpp :-(.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1997-09-03 12:31:48
	* Make compiler build/work with devel 5.005

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1997-07-05 11:58:05
	* Change %lx to %x in B::CV::save to prevent some CV
    fields becoming 0 in the init section. Add missing
    write_back in B::Stackobj::Padsv::load_double to fix
    test 22 of op/my.t.

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1997-07-05 11:58:05
	* B::CC::pp_padsv must cope with vivify_ref (5.004)
	  as well as provide_ref (5.003)

Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk>  1997-05-03 14:47:06
	Alpha 4
	* initial check in of compiler
	from version Alpha a3 to a4
