Revision history for Perl extension Coro. 0.12 Fri Jul 27 04:19:01 CEST 2001 - do not use mmap if neither MAP_ANON nor MAP_ANONYMOUS is defined. - very experimental stack sharing algorithm. not 100% safe ut should work well in practise ;) - added Coro::RWLock. - Coro::Specific now works. 0.11 Tue Jul 24 22:49:21 CEST 2001 - added specialized hack for newer and older linux versions (fast). - renamed Coro::Event::IO to Coro::Handle. - new module Coro::Socket. 0.1 Tue Jul 24 01:47:53 CEST 2001 - release candidate 3. A rather new internal structure :( - the great renaming: Damian Conway gave me a suitable replacement for yield. - added Coro/libcoro, a portable coroutine implementation for C (not even perl-dependent!!!), which can be used by Coro::State. - renamed SAVE_DEFSV (on xs-level only) to avoid symbol clash in perl-5.6. - new function Coro::Event::idle. - the idle process is now overriden by default in Coro::Event. - Coro::Channel now enforces the size. - canceling events now works in all cases. - Coro state now include $_ and $@. - yet another bug workaround that I do not really understand :( - new module Coro::Event::IO (very undocumented) to do non-blocking i/o. - performance tuning. 0.08 Thu Jul 19 06:13:25 CEST 2001 - release candidate 2 (new functionality). - add Coro::State::flush function. - transfer now supports a flags value (mostly for speed ATM). - might compile and work in the presence of threads now. - continuations have a saner syntax. - no more memleaks. 0.07 Tue Jul 17 17:40:18 CEST 2001 - release candidate 1 ;) - slightly nicer code. - fixed a scheduling bug in Coro::Event. 0.06 Tue Jul 17 04:23:24 CEST 2001 - ok, I found the showstopper - the same sub must not be re-entered in two different coroutines, otherwise => crash. I see no easy solution to this problem, except by walking the call chaing and saving/restoring the cv's, which is what I do now. - memory leaks still latent, especially at thread termination. - Coro::Event now works (haha). 0.05 Sun Jul 15 17:32:20 CEST 2001 - fixed a few issues in Coro::Event. - I forgot to include Coro::Event in 0.04 :(:(:( 0.04 Sun Jul 15 05:24:59 CEST 2001 - @_ is now properly localized. - Coro::State is now easier subclassable. - Coro::Cont now coroutine-aware. - Coro::Specific is a low-overhead module to create coroutine-specific vars. - Coro::Event provides a simple interface to Event. 0.03 Fri Jul 13 14:51:52 CEST 2001 - transfer() now implemented in XS (beware). - new module Coro::Cont for really faked continuations. - big internal architecture changes: Coro::State is now really low-level and can thus be used to implement other interesting things, While "Coro::" implements a process-like model. Still crude and subject to change. - $_ and $@ are no longer being localized. 0.02 Tue Jul 10 01:38:17 CEST 2001 - implemented "async" attribute. - $_ and $@ are now localized. - added Coro::Channel. - more testcases, still no docs. 0.01 Tue Jul 3 02:18:41 CEST 2001 - original version; copied from Convert::Scalar.
