Revision history for Perl extension Heap::Simple::Perl. 0.14 2008-01-27 23:43:15 UT - No functional changes - Use two argument open to handle the t/options file. Needed for old perls before 5.6. Only relevant for "make test" 0.13 2008-01-27 14:59:06 UT - Work around a bug in perl 5.6 where you cannot trust the return value of s///ge - Quote version dependencies in Makefile.PL to avoid having some systems depend on 9e-2 instead of 0.09 - Add a line directive to the partial evaluations so that errors refer to logical names like "Heap::Simple::Auto::Number::Scalar::insert line 3" instead of "eval 25 line 3" 0.12 2008-01-26 18:45:32 UT - Pure maintenance release, no functional changes - Added MANIFEST.SKIP - Added "cover", "ppm install" and "ppm uninstall" private make targets - Fix for test on perl 5.10 where we were testing perl itself, not Heap::Simple::Perl - Added PackageTools based versioning 0.11 2005-11-20 - Add extract_all method - Add merge_arrays method - inserts can now handle multiple elements as argument - absorb and key_absorb use the new multi-inserts - absorb and key_absorb now take any number of heaps as argument instead of absorbing exactly one. - Special characters in generated constant strings were incorrectly escaped (bugfix) - key_method doesn't return literal strings anymore in the "complex" case (also causes the above mentioned bug to never trigger) - make the internal _STRING and _LITERAL macros never see each others output (this is possibly a bugfix) 0.10 2005-07-27 - removed a stray print from t/speed_array - Replaced :: by - in author email address (easier quoting for mailers) - Don't run benchmarks unless asked for during Makefile.PL 0.09 2004-11-12 - Minor update, only the tests are changed to work with perl 5.6.1: - Some tests triggered a 5.6.1 issue where -0 differs from 0 - One of the ties in the magic test was one reference too deep. 0.08 2004-11-06 - Removed a few stray "use warnings" in the tests - Added a basic "load the module directly" test since the indirection through Heap::Simple hides load errors. - Added _ before the name of the recover methods since they aren't part of the official API - Only expand all uppercase macros 0.07 2004-10-25 - Split off Heap::Simple to its own package. This package is now Heap::Simple::Perl - Add a "top" method. - Use the "official" constant for infinity (9**9**9) - Expand array, hash and method keys inplace (if safe) - Check for unknown options - Generate code in proper package and with proper name (defining a function twice is now a redefine warning) - _make substitutions functions must start with _, not just contain it - _make macro expansion now has proper argument parsing - _make now does some very trivial code elimination - drop the (always undocumented) internal _init method. It was too awkward to use anyways. - Move perl code to Simple/Perl.pm in preparation for an XS switch - Renamed the "Key" element type to "Scalar". "Key" remains supported for backward compatibility. - Consistent error message for getting an element of an empty heap. - Document that the methods that return undef on empty are only guaranteed to do so in scalar context. - Added an extract_first method that returns nothing on empty. - Replace test suite with a much cleaner one - More fair speed testing - Added speed compare with Array::Heap2 - Added "wrapped", "order", "elements" and "dirty" methods. - Make index 0 into a hash now that more and more attributes get added - Save and restore $@ around _make() based code creation. - Support max_count - add absorb() and key_absorb methods - added _absorb, _key_absorb and _key_insert helper functions, but they are undocumented (not part of the official interface) - placeholders that croak with a nice error message for all methods that don't always exist. 0.06 2004-09-29 - Don't scare away users by directly explaining all possibilities in the docs. Add examples to the top to show basic usage. - Fix author email. - Be paranoid about defining an expanded function twice. - Rename extract_min to extract_top (like Heap did). Keep extract_min around for backward compatibility. Same with top_key (used to be min_key) - Move Simple.pm into lib/Heap - Allow Simple.pm and package version to be different 0.05 2003-05-20 - reorder s.t to take much less memory (failed on fast machines with little memory). - Added keys, values and clear methods, with tests and documentation 0.04 2003-05-19 - Small documentation changes - Bugfix: "Any" and "Object" element types without arguments failed 0.03 2003-05-19 - Added settable infinity - Added generic compare function - min_key now always exists, but can fail on empty heaps - reordered $self-> from most to least likely - Added the Object and Any element methods - Added testcases for element methods Method, Object, Function and Any - Added method "key_insert" - Added testcases for generic compare - Added method "key" - Documented all new stuff - Reduce the number of tests. Still way too many though. 0.02 2003-05-15 - Added testcases for > and gt - Cleaned up the tests a bit - Do a bit less work in the tests (faster) - autocalibrate the big benchmark test. - Unify n.t and s.t. Only run the number variant by default. - Unify 2.t into 1.t - changed the macro-expander so it supports balanced parenthesis - Added the Method and Function element types for completely general key fetching (not documented or tested yet) 0.01 2003-05-14 - original version; created by h2xs 1.22 with options -X -n Heap::Simple - Insert code from my old FastHeap module - Slight code changes - Make special versions (Plain, Array, Hash) - add testcases - Prepare for release - Module set too simular, names too confusing. Refactor module names into arguments. - remove perl 5.6 dependencies (untested) - Prepare for release again.
