CHANGES ------- 2.015 3 September 2008 * Makefile.PL Backout changes made in 2.014 2.014 2 September 2008 * Makefile.PL Updated to check for indirect dependencies. 2.013 18 July 2008 * IO::Compress::Base - Allow IO::Compress::Base::Parameters::parse to accept an IO::Compress::Base::Parameters object. 2.012 15 July 2008 * IO::Compress::Base - Silenced an uninitialised value warning when reading a line at a time from a zip file where the content uses ZIP_CM_STORE. [Problem spotted & fixed by Jeff Holt] * IO::Compress::Base & IO::Uncompress::Base - local-ise $!, $? et al in the DESTROY methods. 2.011 17 May 2008 * IO::Compress::Base - Fixed problem that prevented the creation of a zip file that contained more than one compression method. * IO::Compress::Base::Common - The private Validator class in this module clashes with another CPAN module. Moved Validator into the IO::Compress::Base::Common namespace. [RT #35954] 2.010 5 May 2008 * Fixed problem that meant Perl 5.10 could not upgrade this module. [RT #35342] 2.009 20 April 2008 * Removed the alpha status from File::GlobMapper * IO::Compress::Base When writing output never output a zero length buffer. Done to improve interoperability with other tied filenandle modules. * Changed IO::Uncompress::Base to not use the offset parameter of the read method when reading from a filehandle. The object returned from Net::FTP::retr implements a non-standard read method. The third parameter is used for a timeout value rather than an offset. [rt.cpan#33231] * Changed IO::Uncompress::Base to not use the eof method when reading from a filehandle. The object returned from Net::FTP::retr implements both the read method and the eof method. Unfortunately the implementation of the read method uses non-buffered IO (by using sysread) while the eof method uses buffered IO. Mixing buffered and non-buffered IO results in data corruption. 2.008 2 November 2007 * Minor documentation changes in README 2.006 1 September 20007 * Makefile.PL Added INSTALLDIRS directive to install as a core module when built on a perl >= 5.9. 2.005 18 June 2007 * Stephen Turner reported a problem when using IO::Uncompress::Gunzip with XML::Parser. Turns out there were two issues. Firstly an IO::Uncompress object isn't an IO::Handle. It is now. Secondly the implementation of "read" wasn't honouring this SCALAR will be grown or shrunk to the length actually read. In particular it didn't do the right thing on EOF. This has been fixed. 2.004 3 March 2007 * Made seek less wasteful of memory. 2.003 2 January 2007 * Added explicit version checking 2.002 29 December 2006 * Documentation updates. * Added IO::Handle to the ISA test in isaFilehandle * Add an explicit use_ok test for Scalar::Util in the test harness. The error message reported by 01misc implied the problem was somewhere else. Also explictly check that 'dualvar' is available. 2.001 1 November 2006 * Remove beta status. 2.000_14 26 October 2006 * IO::Uncompress::Base Added support for $/ in record mode * IO::Uncompress::Base The readline interface was substantially slower than the 1.x equivalent. This has now been sorted. Thanks to Andreas J. Koenig for spotting the problem. * IO::Uncompress::AnyUncompress Added IO::Uncompress::Lzf to the list of supported uncompresors. * IO::Uncompress::Base Added TrailingData to one-shot interface. * IO::Uncompress::AnyUncompress Remove raw-deflate (RFC1951) from the default list of compressors to check. It can still be included if the new RawInflate parameter is supplied. This change was made because the only way to tell if content is raw-deflate is to attempt to uncompress it - a few false positives have popped up recently, which suggests that auto-detecting raw deflate is far from perfect. The equivalent change has been made to IO::Uncompress::AnyInflate. [Core patch #28445] * Don't check that filehandles are writable. It would seem that "-w *STDOUT" on windows returns false. [Core Patch #28415] 2.000_13 20 June 2006 * Store compress & uncompressed sizes as 64-bit. * For one-shot uncompression, like this unzip "some.zip" => \@a, MultiStream => 1; Push each uncompressed stream from "some.zip" onto @a. * Added IO::Compress::Base::FilterEnvelope * Added IO::Uncompress::Base::nextStream * The '-' filehandle now maps to either *STDIN or *STDOUT. This keeps mod_perl happier. Was using these before new IO::File("<-") new IO::File(">-") 2.000_12 3 May 2006 2.000_11 10 April 2006 * Transparent + InputLength made more robust where input data is not compressed. 2.000_10 13 March 2006 * AnyUncompress doesn't assume that IO-Compress-Zlib is installed any more. 2.000_09 3 March 2006 * Released to CPAN. 2.000_08 2 March 2006 * Split IO::Compress::Base into its own distribution. * Added opened, autoflush and input_line_number. * Beefed up support for $.
