Revision history for ack

1.16    Fri Jun  2 23:50:10 CDT 2006
        * The -n flag was not working.  Using -n would find no files
          at all.  And added some more unit tests to make sure I don't
          screw it up again.

1.14    Tue May 30 23:12:43 CDT 2006
        * Added -f flag to only show the files that would be searched,
          instead of actually searching them.  This means that you can
          get an easy way to get a list of all the Perl files in the
          current directory, for example, by doing

            ack -f --perl

          Or in multiple directories

            ack -f --perl thisdir thatdir

        * Added back -a as a synonym for --all.

1.12    Wed May 10 11:13:42 CDT 2006
        * Was not skipping directories it should have been.  Now it does.

1.10    Thu May  4 16:11:38 CDT 2006
        * Added --parrot support.  Thanks, Jerry Gay.

        * No longer defaults to ANSI highlighting on Windows.  Thanks
          again, Jerry.

        * Added support for ACK_SWITCHES environment variable.

1.08    May 01 2006
        * Now supports argument bundling.  "ack -i -l" can now be done as
          "ack -il".  Thanks, Pete Krawczyk.

        * Added --javascript support, plus a --js version to save your
          weary fingers.  Thanks, Ask.

1.06    Tue Mar 28 08:37:02 CST 2006
        * Now handles filenames that start with ">" or "<".
        * Failing to open a file is now a warning, instead of fatal.

1.04    Wed Jan 25 22:51:11 CST 2006
        * Now skips blib and RCS as well as CVS and .svn directories.
        * Added support for Python and Ruby.

1.02    Wed Dec 14 13:13:19 CST 2005
        * Fixed a mind-blowingly dumb bug.  The --all flag would search
          no files at all.

1.00    Wed Dec  7 09:30:25 CST 2005
        * Added support for finding C programs (--cc)

        * Removed the --only option.  It's now smart enough to know
          that if, for example, you say --perl, you only want Perl stuff,
          and that if you say --noperl, you want everything BUT Perl.

        * Removed the --exec option, which is irrelevant if you use
          xargs like you should.  I added --exec before I understood what
          xargs did.

0.90    Fri Dec  2 11:12:44 CST 2005
        First version, released on an unsuspecting world.  It's been
        used at FLR for years, but I'm now releasing it in the wild.
