Re: [ANNOUNCE] ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.25_06
Message ID:
I just noticed a couple of other problems I haven't previously reported.

1.) The clean target renames the Makefile, so there is nothing left
with which to run the realclean target.  This is contrary to the 
comment inserted in the clean section and also contrary to my memory 
of what we've always done.

2.) MM_Unix::fixin doesn't seem to clean up properly on VMS.  Here's 
an example borrowed from the $(INST_SCRIPT)instmodsh target showing 
that it successfully creates a new file with the .new extension but 
does not rename it back to the original name:

$ dir [.blib.script]

Directory D0:[CRAIG.trunk.BLIB.SCRIPT]

.exists;1           instmodsh.;1

Total of 2 files.
$ perl "-I[.lib]" "-MExtUtils::MY" -e "MY->fixin(shift)" [.blib.script]instmodsh
$ dir [.blib.script]

Directory D0:[CRAIG.trunk.BLIB.SCRIPT]

.exists;1 ;1

Total of 2 files.
