CHANGES TO CGI::RESPONSE ------------------------ Version 0.03: (01 December 1995) Simple Interface + pod + Added an export tag, ':Simple', and moved the Simple interface methods from @EXPORT to @EXPORT_OK. NOTE: This means that you must say use CGI::Response qw(:Simple); in order to have access to the Simple Interface functions! Don't install this version until you've upgraded old scripts which use it. + Set $| = 1 in all Simple Interface functions. Thanks to Tim Bunce for implementation suggestions. + Added pod (plain old documentation) at the bottom of the Response.pm file (after the __END__ tag). Type perldoc Response.pm while in the lib/CGI directory of this distribution in order to read it. Only the Simple Interface pod is finished; the Full Interface pod will be completed by version 0.07. + Caused the &Redirect Simple Interface function to output a brief HTML page with a link to the redirect for those users whose user-agents do not recognize redirects. Thanks to Randal Schwartz for the idea. + Removed the 'RetryAfter' function, which a number of people have called 'useless' or 'wasted space'. Let me know if this was your favorite function. Version 0.021: (25 November 1995) Bugfix (CGI::Base coredump) + Removed calls to CGI::Base for environment variables, which were causing a coredump on Irix and Solaris. This is a temporary fix; future versions will add some sort of support for CGI::Base back in so that MiniSvr applications can use CGI::Response if they wish. This bugfix may speed up CGI::Response as a side effect, since a CGI::Base object is no longer being created. Version 0.02: (24 November 1995) SelfLoader + update + Added support for SelfLoader, which results in almost a four-times speed increase for Simple Interface applications. Thanks to Andreas Koenig for implementation notes and suggestions. + Corrected some method calls to LWP::* modules for compatability with version 5b6 of that release. + Added the bare beginnings of a pod (documentation). + Added in some of the trappings of a real release -- a README file, this CHANGES files, a TO-DO list, and a tarfile distribution. + Added a Makefile.PL and MANIFEST file for MakeMaker support. + I made a valiant effort to to include some tests, but SelfLoader seems to really screw with -w warnings, so the tests keep failing. Maybe next release. For the time being, I've removed the internal self-test from the main Response.pm file. Version 0.011: (14 August 1995) Maintenance release + Corrected some 'use' statements to account for new LWP::* release. Version 0.01: (08 August 1995) First release + Defined most header values. + Proposed an interface for 'Simple' or 'Full' applications. Thanks to Lincoln Stein, Tim Bunce, Luke Lu, and other CGI-perl list members for their comments on the first release.
