Revision history for Linux::AIO This module has been mostly superseded by IO::AIO, which is API compatible. * works on: ia32, amd64, alpha, sparc64. * likely works on: s390, m68k, arm. * unlikely to work on: ia64, hppa, v850, sparc32, mips64, ppc64. 1.9 Thu Feb 2 00:46:46 CET 2006 - added patch by Nicholas Clark to force optimization, which is required for syscalls to be inlined on ia32. 1.8 Wed Aug 17 18:56:14 CEST 2005 - return immediately from poll_wait if nreqs==0. - use <linux/unistd.h> and try to make it work. - replaced tests by better ones by Brad Fitzpatrick. - fix a bug where the data scalar would be truncated if the data offset is != 0. 1.71 Sun Jul 10 19:11:36 CEST 2005 - aio_readahead was missing in 1.7. - xs fixes for some perls. - remind people to use absolute paths. - add reference to IO::AIO, its brother. 1.7 Sun Jul 10 01:40:00 CEST 2005 - further cleanups and simplifications. - new functions: aio_fsync, aio_fdatasync, aio_readahead. - vastly improved documentation. 1.6 Fri Jul 8 01:17:04 CEST 2005 - added changes for alpha, ia64, sparc64, hppa, v850 (thanks to Stefan Traby who dedusted his old machines). - added t/02_read.t. 1.51 Sat Jul 2 15:18:21 CEST 2005 - last release was borked. - killing threads increases nreqs count infinitely. - fixed a bug in queueing => many outstanding requests lead to starvation. - new function Linux::AIO::poll_wait. - documented Linux::AIO::max_parallel. 1.41 Thu Mar 3 18:00:52 CET 2005 - change of contact address. 1.4 Sat Jan 15 01:04:27 CET 2005 - clarify licensing (same terms as perl itself). 1.3 Sat Aug 7 17:25:31 CEST 2004 - ported to AMD64, possibly other 64 bit architecturs (inspired by Joshua Hoblitt). - removed support for old libcs, kernels (2.2). 1.2 Sun Jul 18 12:54:43 CEST 2004 - do not clone signal handlers. - when the parent thread dies, kill the child threads. - added aio_unlink support (Brad Fitzpatrick <firstname.lastname@example.org>) 1.1 Fri May 7 02:57:36 CEST 2004 - the number of outstanding requests was limited by the pipe buffer size. this limit has been removed. - improve documentation of min_parallel. - one thread will now be started by default. 1.01 Thu May 6 14:16:08 CEST 2004 - better support threaded perls. 1.0 Wed May 5 15:54:23 CEST 2004 - improved the documentation and made a 1.0 release. Whoopa! 0.2 Wed May 5 12:13:02 CEST 2004 - updates for 2.6 headers (syscalls were renamed). 0.111 Sat May 18 23:47:12 CEST 2002 - print a notice that this module won't run on lnux <2.4. 0.11 Fri May 17 04:33:23 CEST 2002 - actually fix the module to work on x86 (doesn't work on most other architectures, though). 0.1 Tue Apr 2 04:35:28 CEST 2002 - use pread/pwrite instead of lseek+read/write. - fixed syscall prototypes. - add stat/lstat calls. - fixed max_parallel deadlock problem. - beginning of a testsuite. - fixed aio_close. - paths are now properly saved. 0.011 Tue Dec 25 03:02:30 CET 2001 - make it compile with 5.6.1 and maybe older versions. Boy is it ugly now. 0.01 Mon Oct 8 14:57:59 CEST 2001 - fixed syntax errors so it compiles with gcc-2.95.4 as well. 0.002 - added Changes, aio_open, aio_close. 0.001 - original version, a dire hack.
