Revision history for Perl extension Net::Ident. 1.23 Sun Jun 13 2010 - Setting values for read only tied hash %! is illegal. removing code. 1.22 Fri Jun 11 09:00:00 CST 2010 - Remove Apache (mod_perl) as a dep for this module 1.21 Fri Jun 11 01:00:00 CST 2010 - Move sub around to fix prototyping bug. - Remove broken ident hosts from list so tests don't break. Right now i know of no working public ident hosts. Patches welcome! - Update Makefile.PL with new options - Add META.yml to module - use %! to determine if error was EINPROGRESS to function in other languages 1.20 Fri Aug 27 00:59:24 CEST 1999 - Public release - Added a few more apache layouts to the Makefile.PL to autodetect. 1.19 Mon Aug 2 22:50:21 CEST 1999 - Added the often asked for, long promised lookupFromInaddr method. - No longer imports ident_lookup into package FileHandle by default, unless you explicitly ask for it (or unless you installed it that way during compile time for compatibility reasons). - Allow adding an ident_lookup method to the Apache::Connection class, as a convenience for mod_perl script writers. - Rewritten tests, included test for the Apache::Connection method by actually launching apache and performing ident lookups from within mod_perl. - Moved selection of FileHandle/IO::Handle class out of the Makefile.PL. PAUSE/CPAN didn't really like modules that weren't present in the distribution, and it didn't allow you to upgrade your perl version underneath. 1.11 Wed Jan 15 01:49:15 MET 1999 - Several bugfixes, and some slight interface changes: - constructor now called `new' instead of `initconnect', constructor now always succeeds, if something has gone wrong in the constructor, all methods return undef (like `getfh'), except for `geterror', which returns the error message. - The recommended exported function is now `ident_lookup' instead of `lookup' - Fixed a bug: now chooses O_NDELAY or O_NONBLOCK from %Config, instead of hardcoding O_NDELAY (argh) - Adding a method to FileHandle would break in perl5.004, it should get added in IO::Handle. Added intelligence in Makefile.PL to detect that and choose the appropriate package. - Miscellaneous pod fixes. - Test script now actually tests multiple different things. 1.10 Sat Jan 11 19:05:35 1997 - original version; created by h2xs 1.16. First release as a perl5 module, complete rewrite for perl5, based on rfc931.pl 1.02 Fri Jan 20 18:20:32 1995 - Quite a big bugfix: "connection refused" to the ident port would kill the perl process with a SIGPIPE if the connect didn't immediately signal it (ie. almost always on remote machines). Also recognises the perl5 package separator :: now on fully qualified descriptors. This is still perl4-compatible, a perl5- only version would require a rewrite to make it neater. Fixed the constants normally found in .ph files (but you shouldn't use those anyway). 1.01 Some Novish evening 1994 - Removed a spurious perl5 -w complaint. First public release. Has been tested against perl 5.000 and perl 4.036. 1.00 Somewhere in 1994 - First neat collection of dusty routines put in a package.
