GAAS / IO-String-1.08 / Changes

2005-12-05   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 1.08

   The untie code in close() just seemed wrong, so just
   remove it.  The object still seems to get cleaned up
   on various versions perl.



2005-10-24   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

2004-11-05   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 1.06

   Make seek() return TRUE when it succeed.  It used to
   return the new position, but we want to be compatible with
   the builtin seek().
   Patch contributed by Kurt M. Brown <kurtb149@yahoo.com>

   Make print() and printf() return TRUE even when printing
   the empty string.  The used to return the lenght of the string
   printed, but now they always return 1 to be compatible with
   the builtins.

   Make binmode() return TRUE unless layers are provided.

2004-01-08   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 1.04

   Documentation fixes by Paul Croome <Paul.Croome@softwareag.com>.



2003-10-06   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 1.03

   Seek will not reset the input_line_number (aka $.) for the IO::String
   object any more.

   Workaround for core dump in close() in perl-5.6.x.



2002-12-27   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 1.02

   Complemented the tiehandle interface with SEEK/TELL/EOF/BINMODE.

   Make close($io) untie the object.  This make it possible
   to avoid memory leaks in perl-5.8 which seems to have problems
   with self-ties.  Based on patch by Eric Kolve <ekolve@attbi.com>.



2000-01-28   Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no>

   Release 1.01

   The eof() method had opposite logic.  Bug spotted by
   Daniel Gruhl <dgruhl@almaden.ibm.com>



1999-04-12   Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no>

   Release 1.00

   Perl version 5.005_03 or better is now needed, because that
   perl has Chip's no-memory-leak-on-self-tie-patch.

   Documentation update



1998-10-14   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>
