What's new in version 1.00: - typo fixes for Tie::File What's new in version 0.99: - Minor POD link fix. What's new in version 0.98: - No changes. Production release after CPAN testers cleared. What's new in version 0.97_01: All changes in this release are from perl 5 porters: - Update address for FSF in POD - z/OS: CPAN-ized ext/ and lib/ - Missing ; in Tie::File - Typos in comments - BeOS specific Updates - turn the alarm off in the tests (was Re: maint @ 20617 (on VMS)) - fix for VMS - last if $last_read_was_short What's new in version 0.96: Minor bug fixes only. What's new in version 0.95: Flushing out the deferred-write buffer is now done in a single pass, regardless of whether the records in the buffer are contiguous. Various time and memory performance enhancements courtesy of Tels. (<email@example.com>) ->flock method now discards read cache and offsets table when successful. Miscellaneous minor bugs fixes and test suite enhancements. New ->offset method for recovering offset table data. (Tels again.) What's new in version 0.93: No significant changes. (Release was mainly to correct an error in one of the test files.) What's new in version 0.92: Bug fixes: Negative 'nrecs' argument to 'splice' is now handled correctly. Tie::File now behaves correctly even if you change $\. More tests and (very) minor performance enhancements. What's new in version 0.91: Tie::File now correctly handles attempts to store undefined values in the array: they are silently converted to defined empty strings. If the last record of the file is not properly terminated with the record terminator string, and if the file was opened for writing, Tie::File will silently repair it. Formerly, it would mangle the file. More unit tests. Performance enhancements. What's new in version 0.90: AUTODEFERMENT: Tie::File will now turn deferred writing on and off automatically when it thinks it would be good to do so. You may disable this feature by calling ->autodefer(0) or by supplying the 'autodefer => 0' option with 'tie'. The read cache now uses a heap instead of an array. This yields much better performance for large caches. Other performance improvements. What's new in version 0.51: Minor fixes in the test suite. What's new in version 0.50: DEFERRED WRITING: You may now use the ->defer method to request that changes to the array *not* be written to the file immediately. Changes will be written when the memory limit for deferred writes is exceeded, or when you invoke the ->flush method. You may discard pending writes with the ->discard method. You may set the limit of discarded data with the 'dw_size' option. The DELETE method now returns the correct values. What's new in version 0.20: MAJOR INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: Records read from the tied array now have the record separator REMOVED by default. This is to provide do-what-I-meant behavior for expressions like $tied .= "more text"; Formerly, this would have appended "more text" *after* the newline character. You may obtain the old behavior by supplying the 'autochomp => 0' option in the 'tie' call, or by invoking the new 'autochomp' accessor method. Tests for this new feature.
