TODDR / Net-Ident-1.23 / Changes

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.
