Revision history for Perl extension Device::SerialPort. 1.0.2 2004-05-10 (Kees) * Makefile.PL: added an OSX serial port default * SerialPort.pm: patch for EOF handling by Arne Georg Gleditsch. On a read for more than 0 bytes, and "select" finishes, but we get a 0 back, then we assume EOF. * corrected version in .spec file. 1.0.1 2004-03-29 (Kees) * small typo in bits processing for can_ioctl (thanks to Rick Ballard and John Eng for finding this!) 1.0.0 2004-02-23 (Kees) * fixed logic in READ tie function from Jaakko Yli-Luukko * added RPM .spec packaging support * adding debian packaging support * updated version number to first stable release * fixing up failure return codes in data,parity,flow functions * cleaning up default settings for parmrk, istrip, etc * split off stty_parmrk * setting defaults of 9600, 8N1, no flow in "new" * added MS_DTR_ON and MS_DSR_ON * clearly documenting "carrier" bit * added automatic system baud rate detection * added modem line reporting to "modemtest" * documented "modemtest" * I think I finally found the parity problem that has been plauging this code since I took it over! 0.22 2003-06-18 (Kees) * added a notice about 4096 read limits on some machines noticed by Ed Morandi. * built an rpm .spec file with the help of cpan2rpm. * adding TESTPORT=... as a Makefile.PL option to not step on MakeMaker's feet. * making "modemtest" an installable script (which adds #! to top). * cleaning up "modemtest" args and output. * reversing configure report so "best" case reports "yes" for all. * handling ancient libcs with odd POSIX.pm _SC_CLK_TCK behavior with diagnostic help from David Dyck * added test case explicitly for get_tick_count 0.21 2003-06-12 (Kees) * don't release files at midnight any more: forgot SerialPort.xs 0.20 2003-06-12 (Kees) * fixed some truth bugs found by David Dyck <email@example.com> * totally rewrote serial bit detection code to use "normal" perl XS routines. Had to even toss in a "configure" script to make it really robust. * jumped up to version 0.20 just because it's just a big change to the build process. Everything else appears undisturbed, but I want to give some time for testing it out on other architectures. 0.13 2002-05-31 (Kees) * added 'sys/modem.ph' for broken HPUX headers * fixed *BSD tiocmget and tick counts, care of firstname.lastname@example.org * fixed the HPUX tioc* stuff, care of "Chang, Jerry" <Jerry.Chang@pyxis.com> 0.12 2001-10-24 (Kees) * found a place where HANDLE was staying open * corrected FD-success test (0 *is* a valid fd number) 0.11 Tue Jul 17 23:32:55 CDT 2001 (Kees) * patch from James Mitchell <email@example.com> to allow TIEHANDLE to use a device port in addition to a config file * updated documentation to reflect above patch * added FILENO function, per James Mitchell's suggestion * detecting vmin settings for broken Solaris tools. * added "modemtest" 0.10 Tue Feb 13 08:52:54 CST 2001 (Kees) * fixed broken tests * improved auto-detection of ioctl methods * got Linux working 100% (even with tests) * got Solaris working 100% (even with tests) 0.09 Thu Jan 25 09:59:24 CST 2001 (Kees) * added support for other OSes * corrected DTR activation code 0.07 Tue Sep 07 22:41:53 CDT 1999 * add status, write_done, modemlines methods * add saved utility parameters and methods (hostname, et.al) * save lockfile data in configuration_file 0.06 Fri Aug 07 17:49:40 1999 * ported demos 5,6,7 from Win32 * rename GetTickCount method to get_tick_count * add stty_xxx shortcut methods * add lookfor, streamline, are_match, READLINE and related methods * add output_record and output_field separator support * add return values to purge_xx and write_drain 0.055 Sat Aug 07 14:13:48 1999 * interim test release for configuration files, defaults, bug fixes * added tests, demos, and examples 0.051 Tue Aug 03 10:12:14 1999 * test?.t changes for Sun testing 0.05 Wed Jul 28 23:53:38 1999 * now uses standard MakeMaker install sequence with make * alternate port for "make test" not yet supported * delete lib subdirectories, make copies SerialPort.pm to blib * AltPort.pm moved to t, "use lib" paths revised * Add can_ioctl and allow operation if "asm/termios.ph" not found * Add error and sanity checking to xxx_active and pulse_xxx methods * Document $quiet option for new method * Add preliminary lockfile support 0.04 Wed Jul 21 23:53:38 1999 * original version; created by h2xs 1.18 * MakeMaker templates merged with pre-existing code * Add RTS, BREAK, DTR control * Add GetTickCount method (clone of Win32::GetTickCount) * Add read_const_time and read_char_time * Add SHORTsize, LONGsize, test3.t and AltPort.pm for testing * Add partial tied FileHandle support * Documentation improvements * Ported some of the Win32::SerialPort examples and demos 0.03 * Test version for ioctl support. 0.02 * Complete rewrite of the pod documentation. * module now maintained by Bill Birthisel. * Add PARAM: tags to %EXPORT_TAGS. * Rename "tact" to "nocarp". * Allow "parity_enable" and "set_test_mode_active" to accept FALSE. * Add "defined" tests for POSIX tests which return "undef" on fail. * Add the "can_xxx" methods with suitable return values. * Initialize "user_msg", "error_msg", and "debug" to FALSE. * Add "write_drain", "debug", and "reset_error" methods. * Revise "baudrate", "parity", "databits", "stopbits", and "handshake" to return current values in scalar context and permitted choices in list context. All values in same format as setting arguments. 0.01 * This is a POSIX version of the Win32::Serialport module ported by Joe Doss for MisterHouse from Version 0.08.
