Revision history for Perl extension Async::Interrupt. 1.2 Fri Apr 11 06:22:38 CEST 2014 - perl5porters broke Async::Interrupt, BDB, EV, IO::AIO, OpenCL without warning by switching the meaning of USE_SOCKETS_AS_HANDLES in 5.18. What's so attractive about giving a shit about backwards compatibility - I will never understand. 1.1 Wed Apr 25 00:46:08 CEST 2012 - new $async->handle method. - new $async->pipe_drain method. - use memory fences for !x86, and x86 future proofing. use libecb for implementation. 1.05 Sat May 15 02:06:33 CEST 2010 - implement $epipe->signal_func method. 1.04 Wed Mar 31 02:46:49 CEST 2010 - a double fork partially killed the event pipe (great testcase by dormando). affects IO::AIO, BDB and Async::Interrupt. 1.03 Tue Nov 24 14:31:10 CET 2009 - port to loser platform. 1.02 Tue Sep 1 18:41:09 CEST 2009 - prototypes for sig2name/sig2num were missing. 1.01 Wed Aug 5 13:50:59 CEST 2009 - evpipe->wait did immediately return on !windows. 1.0 Thu Jul 30 05:58:55 CEST 2009 - implement signal_hysteresis. - implement scope_block_func. - implement sig2name/sig2num convenience functions. 0.6 Sat Jul 18 07:09:33 CEST 2009 - add autodrain setting. - added Async::Interrupt::EventPipe class. - fixed a potential race issue by removing the internal epipe state. - destroying asyncs inside their handler callback could lead to segfaults. - destroying an interrupt object did not properly remove it from the asyncs list (classical case of side-effect-inside-assert). 0.501 Fri Jul 17 16:58:51 CEST 2009 - do no longer errornously do operations on fd 0 if no pipe is associated with the interrupt object. 0.5 Fri Jul 17 03:53:21 CEST 2009 - INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: signalling the value 0 is no longer allowed. - added automatic pipe creation code, including post_fork method. - added ->c_var method, and the ability to use a perl scalar as signal checker. 0.042 Tue Jul 14 21:51:04 CEST 2009 - enforce initialisation of perl's signal handling framework, avoiding crashes otherwise. - switched to common::sense. - freely sprinkle around more volatiles. - fix initialisation code (XSLoader). - ported to win32. 0.041 Sun Jul 12 18:32:46 CEST 2009 - oh my, I forgot to include the typemap. - improved documentation. 0.04 Sun Jul 12 00:24:02 CEST 2009 - added ability to block the pipe write temporarily. - added the ability to call signal when the process receives a (POSIX) signal. - removed debugging output in constructor. - support eventfd instead of a pipe (untested). 0.03 Fri Jul 3 23:11:05 CEST 2009 - port to perl <= 5.8.9. 0.02 Thu Jul 2 17:17:30 CEST 2009 - first release, rather untested. 0.01 Thu Jul 2 13:18:00 CEST 2009 - original version; cloned from Convert::Scalar.
