  POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.30; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.35

    Documentation cleanup in PoCo::Client::TCP and PoCo::Server::TCP

    First time I committed CVS (outside of my own hard drive) Yay me! 

  2003-02-06 20:07:15 by rcaputo; t/04_selects.t 1.17

    This fix is against against revision 1.14. Forcing that new test to
    use "inet" pipes breaks on systems where localhost is firewalled.
    Tweaked the test to use whichever pipes it can under non-Windows
    operating systems, and forced it to "inet" for MSWin32. A real
    solution would be to skip the test entirely if the pipe can't be
    built. I suspect we'll need to revisit this later. 

  2003-02-06 03:30:38 by rcaputo; t/06_tk.t 1.40

    It is unfortunate, but a bug in ActivePerl 5.8.0's version of Tk
    prevents us from supporting Tk at all in this build. We regret the
    inconvenience and hope that support can resume in a future ActivePerl
    build. Meanwhile, you may follow the status of the bug at
    http://bugs.activestate.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22619 

  2003-02-06 03:25:52 by rcaputo; POE/Loop/Tk.pm 1.39

    Collateral refactoring while trying to work around ActivePerl's
    problem with Tk, and Tk's problem with my preferred workaround. 

  2003-02-05 16:22:11 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.233

    Nancy Grady pointed out that Randal Schwartz's listing at
    http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/LinuxMag/col41.listing.txt was not
    exiting when it was done. This turned out to be a missing garbage
    collection test in POE::Kernel, introduced during the Great
    Refactoring of 2002. This fix adds back the GC test that was removed. 

  2003-02-04 03:32:01 by rcaputo; POE/Pipe.pm 1.9

    Bad Rocco! Always verify copied/pasted/tweaked code has actually been
    tweaked, or you'll keep doing things like what was fixed here.
    Luckily it hadn't caused any trouble to speak of.

  POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.29; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.34

    The code to validate SessionParams was broken. Even when
    SessionParams was defined correctly, it was overwritten with an empty
    array reference. This has been fixed.

    Resolving Ticket #1597 on rt.cpan.org

    All tests now look in ./lib, ../lib, .., and . for libraries so as to
    not go testing already installed libraries. 

  2003-02-01 04:17:41 by cwest; POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.28

    Added new() parameters SessionType and SessionParams. SessionType
    allows you to override the default POE session handler, POE::Session,
    with your choice of drop in replacement such as
    POE::Session::MultiDispatch. SessionParams allows you to pass extra
    arguments to the SessionType's constructor. Most useful are things in
    the options hash. 

  2003-02-01 04:04:39 by cwest; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.33

    Added create() parameters SessionType and SessionParams. SessionType
    allows you to override the default POE session handler, POE::Session,
    with your choice of drop in replacement such as
    POE::Session::MultiDispatch. SessionParams allows you to pass extra
    arguments to the SessionType's constructor. Most useful are things in
    the options hash.

  POE/Kernel.pm 1.232; POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.44

    The old HP-UX SIGRTMIN bug in Perl bit us again on Gentoo Linux. It
    appears the hints for that platform allow all these non-signal
    /SIG.*/ symbols into the %SIG hash, and setting them causes perl to
    segfault. Normally we wouldn't know about it, but recent signal
    reforms have reintroduced the errors. This time we build a single
    list of safe signals and use that instead of keys(%SIG). If we're
    lucky, this will be the last of that. 

  2003-01-21 22:22:35 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.42

    One cannot assume that filehandles have methods such as clearerr().
    If one does, someone (Hi, Rob Bloodgood) using Perl 5.005_03 will
    inform one that one's code doesn't work. One will therefore be
    required to commit patches such as this one that replaces
    $handle->clearerr() with IO::Handle::clearerr($handle). One might be
    somewhat bitter about all these tethers holding one from using more
    modern coding techniques. Gulliver probably felt similar upon
    awakening Lilliput. 

  2003-01-21 07:27:59 by rcaputo; t/08_errors.t 1.41

    Wheel::Run can change input/output filters now, so remove the tests
    which no longer generate errors.

  POE/Kernel.pm 1.231; POE/Pipe.pm 1.8; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.68

    The introduction of $handle->blocking() for ActivePerl 5.8.0 breaks
    perl 5.005_03 on two counts. First, filehandles aren't blessed into
    IO::Handle by default. Second, blocking() doesn't exist in the older
    Perl. Reintroduce the homegrown non/blocking code for legacy Perl,
    but use the portable IO::Handle version for modern Perl. 

  2003-01-17 18:26:57 by cwest; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.32

    POE::Component::Server::TCP->new() now accepts an 'Args' parameter.
    It does the same thing as 'Args' does for
    POE::Component::Client::TCP. A list of arguments are passed to the
    ClientConnected callback filling @{ARG0..$#_}. This is helpful for
    setting up sessions with important data. 

  2003-01-11 04:33:35 by rcaputo; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.31

    Bob Maccione discovered that ECONNABORTED (a connection was closed
    before it could be accepted) was killing off PoCo::Server::HTTP. This
    change ignores ECONNABORTED, so clients can't use it to kill servers. 

  2003-01-09 17:56:09 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.230

    Mark each "resource" section with the name of the module it will
    become. 

  2003-01-04 04:23:55 by rcaputo; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.29

    Halfjack discovered six subtests that failed. We tracked them down to
    a bogus $Configure{perlpath}. I changed the tests to discover the
    perl path via $^X instead, which exists at least as far back as
    5.005_03. 

  2003-01-02 06:19:03 by rcaputo; POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.27

    Document Started in the SYNOPSIS. 

  2003-01-01 04:24:40 by rcaputo; POE/Session.pm 1.83

    Doc patch for Averell. 

  2002-12-31 22:59:57 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.43

    Applied Jason Stillwell's patch to finish several features in this
    wheel. We can now pause and resume Stdout and Stderr events, and the
    wheel now supports changing filters at runtime. 

  2002-12-31 22:09:46 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.229

    Jason Stillwell discovered that event handlers can't return undef.
    Nothing seems to rely on this behavior, so now it's removed. 

  2002-12-24 03:53:02 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.228

    Scott Beck pointed out that statement-modifier foreach isn't
    supported in older versions of Perl. This patch replaces them with
    C<foreach BLOCK> versions, which should work much farther back in
    Perl history. 

  2002-12-21 04:39:13 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.227

    Damien Neil discovered a temporary Session reference leak in the new
    signal handling code. The leak prevents sessions from stopping when
    they should (they do stop on subsequent signals, though). We were
    able to fix the problem thanks to his information. 

  2002-12-19 05:32:06 by rcaputo
  POE/Kernel.pm 1.226; POE/Pipe.pm 1.7; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.67

    Replace the homegrown blocking and nonblocking handle code with
    IO::Handle's blocking() method. This should do the right thing in
    more places with less work. For example, it fixes the ioctl() errors
    introduced in ActiveState 5.8.0 without breaking things on FreeBSD
    5.6.1. 

  2002-12-18 17:38:25 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.225

    Applied Garrett Goebel's patch that allows call() to honor wantarray
    context. 

  2002-12-18 17:26:46 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.224

    Applied Garrett Goebel's patch to clean up calls to
    _data_ev_refcount_dec(). This does three things: 1) Disambiguates a
    $_ in a foreach loop. 2) Removes a few temporary lexical variables.
    3) Reduces the number of lines of code. 

  2002-12-16 17:32:55 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.41

    Applied Matt Sergeant's globref patch. 

  2002-12-13 03:44:26 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.40

    Removed an unneeded Fcntl module use that was also causing trouble
    with Rob Bloodgood's 5.005_03 system. 

  2002-12-13 03:28:18 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.223

    Apply Rob Bloodgood's patch to support 5.005_03 in POE::Kernel. 

  2002-12-10 03:09:17 by rcaputo; POE/Session.pm 1.82

    Damien Neil pointed out that Session.pm destroys its package_states
    parameter. This is rude and has been fixed. 

  2002-12-09 20:22:41 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.154

    Bump POE's version to 0.2301 for development. 

=========================

=========================

  2002-12-09 18:14:46 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.66

    Remove some Win32 warnings about constant prototypes. 

  2002-12-09 16:21:42 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.153

    Bump version to 0.24. 

  2002-12-09 16:20:15 by rcaputo; README 1.102

    Pre-release tweaks. 

  2002-12-08 16:54:23 by rcaputo; MANIFEST 1.80

    Include MANIFEST.SKIP. 

  2002-12-05 20:37:20 by rcaputo; POE/Driver/SysRW.pm 1.23

    Applied Garrett Goebel's patch to support EWOULDBLOCK as a
    recoverable error on MSWin32. 

  2002-12-05 20:24:38 by rcaputo
  MANIFEST.SKIP 1.1; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.26

    Add Makefile targets for PPM-compatible tarballs. 

  2002-11-27 20:55:30 by rcaputo; POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.26

    Fix the documentation for Started (was documeted as Start, which is
    wrong). Thanks to Rob Fugina for spotting this. 

  2002-11-27 17:52:28 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.65

    Cygwin requires the exception flag be checked on sockets in order to
    detect connect() errors. As far as I know, no other system does.
    Disable the exception check on non-cygwin systems, as it interferes
    with Tk (which cannot check for exceptions as of version 800.023). 

  2002-11-27 08:06:26 by rcaputo; POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.25

    Applied Pedro Melo Cunha's patch to add a Started callback and an
    Args list for passing values into the component without using
    closures. 

  2002-11-20 18:00:50 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.64

    Added and documented pause_accept() and resume_accept() methods. 

  2002-11-20 17:57:41 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadWrite.pm 1.61

    Fixed a paste error in the documentation. 

  2002-11-19 19:23:00 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.26

    Carthag on efnet #poe pointed out that the last patch (also a
    response to his feedback) died outright if LE wasn't present. Also,
    there is no "ri" in termcap(5), so I'm faking it by printing part of
    the input string again. It works pretty well for being icky. :) 

  2002-11-19 18:44:05 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.25

    Support le and ri in addition to LE and RI. We'll need to support
    Term::Info (or the moral equivalent) also, because many operating
    systems don't deign to include termcap. Bleah. 

  2002-11-19 18:02:09 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.222

    Found and fixed the error in TRACE_DEFAULT: _dispatch_event() was
    trying to look up session aliases and other information before a
    session had started, so that stuff didn't exist. Instant crash. 

  2002-11-19 17:42:06 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.221

    Fixed explained return values when using TRACE_RETVALS. 

  2002-11-12 17:18:25 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.63

    Apply Garrett Goebel's patch to make dynamic constants inline-able. 

====================================

====================================

  2002-11-08 17:11:54 by rcaputo
  POE/Kernel.pm 1.220; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.62

    Applied Garrett Goebel's SocketFactory patch to support non-blocking
    connect() on MSWin32. The patch also includes his notes on possible
    side effects and a better algorithms for avoiding them. This may fix
    several long-standing problems under Windows. 

  2002-11-08 16:20:11 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.42

    Jos Boumans provided a testcase for Wheel::Run not sending
    CloseEvent. It turned out that we were setting socket readers based
    on the presence of StdoutEvent and StderrEvent, but we were
    incrementing the internal activitiy counter based on the presence of
    pipe handles. Two handles always exist (for pipes) regardless of the
    presence of events for them. The fix is to always register readers
    for child STDERR and STDOUT (lest one block!) but not emit events
    when they aren't wanted. We catch their closure, and things should
    work better now. 

  2002-11-07 20:04:14 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.219

    Fixed some of the Kernel traces that were confessing instead of
    warning. That caused POE to exit after the message, which was
    definitely not right. 

  2002-11-05 21:03:32 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel.pm 1.17

    Applied Garrett Goebel's doc fixes. 

  2002-11-03 14:40:17 by rcaputo; POE/Loop.pm 1.2

    Described the timer features needed in more detail, per Stef's
    feedback. 

  2002-11-01 16:43:26 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.152

    Fixed a typo reported by Jeffz. 

  2002-11-01 14:59:16 by rcaputo
  POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.24; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.30

    Add examples of Filter and ClientFilter parameters, thanks to a
    question on their nature by Abdul Fatah. 

  2002-10-27 22:57:53 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.218

    Addi mentioned using event counts to short-circuit queue sweeps. I
    forgot to do that in _data_ev_clear_session(). This patch adds it. 

  2002-10-26 11:59:39 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.151; POE/Filter/Grep.pm 1.4;

    I discovered the podchecker utility, and ran it on POE's
    documentation. Ow! The errors are fixed, but not the warnings. 

  2002-10-26 06:21:28 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.150

    Bump the version up to 0.2303. Feature freeze is over, la la la. 

===========================
2002-10-25 17:04:16 v0_2302
===========================

  2002-10-25 17:04:16 by rcaputo; Makefile.PL 1.25

    Update the ithreads warning, and make the delay for it a little
    longer so people can digest it. 

  2002-10-25 16:13:36 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.149

    Bump the version to 0.2302 for release. Feature freeze. Only commit
    bug fixes. 

  2002-10-25 15:53:46 by rcaputo; README 1.101

    Minor edits before 0.2302 is tarred up. 

  2002-10-25 15:04:38 by rcaputo; t/00_coverage.t 1.16

    Clean up an error message regarding Wheel::ReadLine and Term::Cap.

    [May Break Code] Clean up the ASSERT_ and TRACE_ messages, and
    standardize their categories. The _DEFAULT ones still work. :) 

  2002-10-25 06:52:29 by rcaputo; lib/cpan-test.perl 1.2

    Fixed a problem where the newest versions of a module were deleted
    rather than the oldest ones. Minor aesthetic changes, too. 

  2002-10-21 00:08:02 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.41

    Only import what we need.

    Added a mandatory warning whenever a signal is handled by returning
    true from its event handler. POE versions since 0.20 have recommended
    using sig_handled() instead.

    Added a mandatory warning whenever a "_signal" event handler is
    registered. POE versions since 0.20 have recommended using sig() to
    register explicit handlers rather than using catch-all _signal event.

    Added a mandatory warning when calling sig_handled() in a "_signal"
    handler. This includes handling signals from "_default".

    Removed _signal handlers from components and tests, since they now
    cause warnings. For the tests which need to handle signals, we now
    call sig() to register those handlers.

    Removed _signal from the list of events which generate the "... but
    session foo has neither that state nor a _default state to handle it"
    warnings. Otherwise removing _signal handlers would trade one warning
    for another.

  POE/Wheel/ListenAccept.pm 1.26; POE/Wheel/ReadWrite.pm 1.60;
  POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.61

    Removed support for /.*State/ parameters and upgraded their use from
    warnings to errors. This is a scheduled change, per
    http://poe.perl.org/?POE_RFCs/XyzState_to_XyzEvent 

  2002-10-18 20:43:22 by rcaputo; POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.22

    Applied Casey Zacek's patch adding a ConnectTimeout to Client::TCP. 

  2002-10-14 23:04:45 by rcaputo; lib/cpan-test.perl 1.1

    This little ditty runs all the /^POE::/ modules on the CPAN against
    the local CVS version of POE. Useful for regression testing and
    uncovering problems in components. 

  2002-10-14 17:44:41 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.214

    Applied James March's patch to move the final leak checking out of
    END and into explicitly called finalize() functions. This prevents
    the checks from being triggered on crashes (which always leave some
    cruft behind). 

  2002-10-11 21:21:41 by rcaputo
  MANIFEST 1.79; POE/Queue.pm 1.1; POE/Queue/Array.pm 1.2

    Moved POE::Queue::Array documentation to POE::Queue and made it
    generic (only minor edits). Replaced POE::Queue::Array documentation
    with a pointer to POE::Queue's.

    Classified the unclassified accessors as helpers, and tidied up their
    names to match their new category. Documented the abstract POE::Loop
    interface as POE/Loop.pm, and documented the specific loops with
    pointers back to it. 

  2002-10-07 20:40:24 by rcaputo; lib/cvs-log.perl 1.3

    While just admiring the cvs logs this generates, I noticed that I had
    badly formatted the dates. This swaps month and day in the log so
    that the dates make sense. 

  2002-10-04 16:30:30 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.212

    Renamed the VEC_* constants to MODE_* because they no longer are tied
    to select() bit vectors. Also renamed the FVC_* constants to FMO_*
    for the same reason. Tweaked the way _dispatch_event() is called as
    part of the voodoo of fixing Gtk and Event (see earlier commit). 

  2002-10-04 16:27:38 by rcaputo
  POE/Loop/Event.pm 1.30; POE/Loop/Gtk.pm 1.29

    Fixed file descriptor tracking. The first rewrite was broken because
    different access modes (read, write) would overwrite themselves for
    the same file descriptor. This version separates watchers by
    descriptor and mode, fixing LordVorp's problem and probaly also
    jerakeen's.

    Also cleaned up some of the warning messages, renamed VEC to MODE
    throughout, and fixed the _dispatch_event calls to match Kernel.pm's
    definition for that function.

  POE/Loop/Poll.pm 1.17; POE/Loop/Select.pm 1.39; POE/Loop/Tk.pm 1.36

    Clean up the trace/assert messages a little bit. Rename VEC to MODE
    throughout. Standardize the _dispatch_event() calls to match changes
    in Kernel.pm. 

  2002-10-03 18:59:38 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.40

    Reset all signal handlers to DEFAULT in the child process. Leaving
    POE's signal handlers active was the wrong thing to do. Thanks to
    JamesCOU for finding this bug. 

  2002-10-03 12:43:17 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.211

    Add TRACE_RELATIONS, and move extra-reference garbage collection so
    that it doesn't trigger a duplicate _stop event *from* a _stop event.
    This clears up the last of the known bugs introduced by accessorizing
    POE::Kernel's internal structures.

    Normalized the parameters for the enqueue and dequeue functions in
    POE::Kernel, and their use throughout all the files. Tracked down and
    stomped a file descriptor reference count inconsistency. Tested POE
    against its own tests, and tested my components against POE. All
    tests successful. However, more work needs to be done: A lot of
    warnings come up when SIGINT'ing a program. 

  2002-10-02 22:58:20 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.209

    Implement POE_TRACE_FOO and POE_ASSERT_FOO environment variables.
    These let you turn on traces and assertions without modifying any
    code. Also cleaned up a leak in the extra refcount management, and
    tidied up some error messages. 

  2002-10-02 18:54:59 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.208

    Undo the inline "optimization" from the last commit. The function
    needs to exist for scoping reasons. 

  2002-10-02 18:38:33 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.207

    Chop up all the long (>79 chars) lines. Inline a function that was
    only called from one place. Fix a misspelled method name, which
    caused Rob Bloodgood's program to fail.

    Split Kernel.pm into several subsystems. Although they are in the
    same file, their data structures have been separated and hidden as
    lexicals in private scopes. The only way to modify them is through
    public accessors. The next step in the refactor will be to clean up
    the accessors, but I wanted to commit things while it still passes
    "make test". 

  2002-10-02 06:58:20 by rcaputo; t/08_errors.t 1.40

    I copped out, sorry. I removed some parameter syntax test which
    created wheels outside of any session. The resulting good syntax came
    out as errors because POE freaked when it tried to put the wheels
    somewhere that didn't exist. I hope to make up for tonight's lameness
    with a decent suite of unit tests later. 

  2002-10-02 06:54:56 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.148

    We're going to try a different version numbering scheme. Odd
    subversions will be for CVS stuff. Even subversions will be web-only
    releases. As always, plain versions (which only go out to the
    hundredths place) are reserved for stable CPAN releases. Bump the
    version to 0.2301 to kick off the CVS phase (kind of late, though). 

  2002-10-02 06:27:41 by rcaputo; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.27

    Wheel::Run contains its own exit code, which tries to thwart object
    destruction so POE's own destructors aren't triggered. The exit
    statement in the coderef test was thwarting it, causing all kinds of
    false leak detection. 

  2002-09-30 02:43:46 by sungo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.38

    remove -l check on files which fixes spurious warning when

  2002-09-28 02:53:26 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.37

  2002-09-28 00:20:57 by rcaputo
  POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.36; t/14_wheels_ft.t 1.10

    Split FollowTail into two modes: plain-file mode which uses
    "blocking" I/O and timer based polling on disk files, and fifo/socket
    mode which uses non-blocking I/O and select-based polling on special
    files. This should do the right things for sockets, pipes, and plain
    files. Because it avoids NBIO and select() on disk files, it should
    also work on Windows and VMS.

    Attempt to binmode() tied files, although do it in a block eval in
    case it fails. Don't bother making plain files (-f $handle)
    nonblocking, since it rarely makes a difference and sometimes really
    honks off the operating system (aka: POE dies in the attempt). Oh,
    and much code movement (aka: refactoring). Still not done with that. 

  2002-09-26 19:51:09 by rcaputo; samples/preforkedserver.perl 1.13

    Beginning of the refactoring that will move all POE data structure
    access into accessors. When this is done, the public interfaces will
    be totally separate from the internal data munging. That should let
    the data structures be redone in C without affecting the public
    interfaces.

    More code cleanup. Simplified Select.pm and Poll.pm by removing a

    optimizations in Select.pm by moving a loop into a function rather
    than calling the function once per iteration.

    some loop-specific things from Kernel.pm to the appropriate bridges.
    The tentacles between Kernel and each event loop are not entirely

    Skip tests rather than fail if AF_INET6 gethostbyname2() works but
    none of the socket calls do. This might indicate that while localhost
    (::1) is resolvable, the interface is not actually configured. It may
    also indicate while the interface is configured, an unconfigured ipv6
    firewall's "deny all" may be blocking it.

    A previous change to Server::TCP "optimized" some code by moving the
    ClientDisconnected code to _stop. However, since very little can be
    done from _stop, this prevented post() calls from working there. I
    discovered the problem when one of the POE Cookbook recipes stopped
    exiting as it should. This change moves the ClientDisconnected code
    back out of _stop. It also pretties the default error handlers for
    Client::TCP and Server::TCP.

    Peter Chen discovered and helped solve a problem where the subroutine
    form of Program caused file handles to bleed into the child process.
    The result is that sockets linger open beyond the time they're

    CloseOnCall, which emulates close-on-exec as Perl uses it.

    Michael Stevens discovered a situation where signals could trigger a
    session's destruction twice. The symptom is a "session does not
    exist" error in Session.pm. This patch adds a simplified version of
    his test case to t/11_signals_poe.t, clarifies the "session does not
    exist" error message, and prevents what is essentially a double-free
    error in POE::Kernel. Other files, such as Session.pm and Select.pm
    were touched during the course of this fix but essentially remain
    unchanged.

    L. Leo reported that run() could not be called twice in the same
    program. That was true for a number of reasons revolving around
    signal handling and the need to clean up the Kernel's data structures
    before run() returned. I have made run() re-callable by re-setting
    the signal handlers from within run() and by re-initializing the

    Cristiano Lincoln Mattos reported that SocketFactory was not emitting
    connect errors on Cygwin+Win2k. His debugging pinpointed the section
    in the code where the problem lay, and with his assistance I was able
    to put together a working patch. He also tested the patch on Win2k
    and Linux, while I tested it on FreeBSD. Other tests are forthcoming,
    but I wanted to get the patch into CVS before that.

    James March is trying to tweak a POE program for performance. He was
    kind enough to provide some Devel::SmallProf output so I could track
    bottlenecks within POE itself. It turns out that @kr_filenos was a
    very hot data structure, and it was used primarily in ways that made
    more sense as a hash. This commit changes @kr_filenos into
    %kr_filenos. All tests pass.

    Sergey Skvortsov reported that Driver::SysRW uses length() to count
    octets in buffers, which is broken in newer versions of Perl that
    support Unicode. In the Unicode sense, length() returns the number of
    CHARACTERS in a buffer, which may be fewer than the number of octets.
    This change adds POE/Macro/UseBytes, which is a backward-compatible
    way of including C<use bytes> in files. It also adds use_bytes
    directives to wherever looks appropriate.

    "When three people tell you you're sick, lie down." Matt Cashner,
    Artur Bergman, and Todd Caine told me the "POE::Kernel's run() method
    was never called." warning was annoying. I suggested not emitting the
    warning if no sessions were created (so perl -c and some tests don't
    carp). That seemed ok with everyone, so this commit implements that
    change.

    important fact from the docs is a great way to make people read them
    carefully, it's better to include the information.

    In a tight yield() loop, POE::Kernel::Gtk would fire and reset timers
    so fast that it would pre-empt window painting. The symptom was empty
    Gtk windows. This patch interleaves timer and idle events so that Gtk
    has a chance to catch up with POE.

  POE/Loop/Event.pm 1.17; POE/Loop/Tk.pm 1.24

    Randal Schwartz discovered a problem in POE::Kernel::Event where it
    would not permit an idle program to shut down. It turned out that an
    optimization in Kernel garbage collection prevented GC from being
    tested if there were events in the queue. Newer SIGCHLD polling keeps
    at least one event in the queue at all times, so GC was never being
    tweaked. It turns out that POE::Kernel::Tk has the same problem.
    These beg the question: How were the tests ever working? Note: It
    might be better to differentiate between Kernel's events and
    Sessions' events, and force GC when Sessions' count reached 0.

    PerlPanda on dalnet was disturbed that POE exports $poe_kernel into
    main. While that can't be changed right now, this change supports two
    other ways to call run(). Either first call POE::Kernel->new() to get
    a copy of $poe_kernel, or just call POE::Kernel->run() directly. They
    are essentially syntactic sugar to mollify OO purists.

    Todd Caine requested a "Driver" parameter for Wheel::Run. While I was
    adding one, I realized that STDIN, STDOUT *and* STDERR were all
    sharing a single internal driver instance. That's bad because three
    handles cannot reliably share a single driver (which can only read on
    one handle and write on one handle reliably). This may have uncovered
    a nasty bug in Wheel::Run. Thankfully, 0.22 has not yet been
    released.

    As I once learned long ago, IO::Foo tends to be slow. In the old
    case, it was IO::Select. Now I've discovered that IO::Poll is slow as
    well. This is the price one pays for using generic modules, however.
    I researched IO::Poll and discovered its internal _poll function,
    which is written in XS. POE::Kernel::Poll was revised to use that
    directly rather than incurring overhead from using the public
    interface. I only hope I can keep up with IO::Poll changes.
    POE::Kernel::Poll should really be better than select() now regarding
    latency and scalability, if only a little bit. 

  2002-06-28 02:22:30 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.186

    Matt Sergeant noticed that POE::Wheel::Run sometimes creates defunct
    (zombie) processes. I suspected that it was a race between program
    shutdown and POE::Kernel's reaper. Matt was able to verify this by
    adding some non-blocking reaper code after run() was called. I added
    code to POE::Kernel that keeps it alive as long as there are
    outstanding child processes. This will ensure that they're reaped (no
    more defunct zombies).

  POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.33; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.24

    (!!!) POE::Wheel::Run's Filter parameter was broken as designed. A
    single Filter instance cannot possibly filter three filehandles! The
    fix was to replace Filter with StdioFilter, which only filters STDIN
    and STDOUT. StderrFilter must be specified separately. It's easy to
    write code that is compatible with the old and new interfaces (for a
    module, for example). Just use StdinFilter, StdoutFilter, and
    StderrFilter explicitly.

    Richard Soderberg pointed out a couple things, which are now fixed.
    First, it's possible to run the IO::Poll tests with an older version
    by saying "no" to installing a newer one. That leads to test failures
    later on. The work-around is to add checks in POE::Kernel::Poll and
    t/27_poll.t for the proper IO::Poll version. Second, he pointed out
    that a few dependencies were missing from the installer. Added!

    (!!!) Change the ClientFilter and Filter parameters in Server::TCP
    and Client::TCP respectively. They were recently "enhanced" to accept
    filter instances, and they would create filter instances from class
    names internally. However, this new "feature" meant that every
    connection SHARED THE SAME FILTER. The changes now let them accept
    class names and optional constructor parameters, and the components
    will instantiate new filters for each connection. "MarkClone" on
    efnet reported that the POE Cookbook web server was only honoring its
    first request; the remainders were bombing out with an error which
    led me to this problem.

    Philip Gwyn discovered a "modification of a read-only value" error in
    POE::Kernel::Tk's file watcher pause/resume code. I adapted a
    previous plain-Tk testcase to verify the behavior outside POE. It's
    there in Tk on Perl 5.004_05. The testcase doesn't fail with Perl
    5.005_03, so it looks like an incompatibility between Tk and the
    older version of Perl. I've decided to discontinue Tk support in Perl
    versions before 5.005_03. If anyone has a vested interest in the
    older Perls + Tk + POE, I can provide the test case for their
    debugging pleasure.

  2002-06-02 16:02:50 by rcaputo; POE/Preprocessor.pm 1.29

    Fixed a missing symbol warning when expanded source dumping is off. 

  2002-06-01 22:13:56 by rcaputo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.10

    Disable t/27_poll.t if IO::Poll is not installed. 

  2002-06-01 22:13:17 by rcaputo; t/00_coverage.t 1.10

    Prettified another message pertaining to a missing optional
    dependency. Made an old one more cleare (gods, I hope) about the
    missing module being optional. 

  2002-06-01 22:12:07 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.19

    Jos Boumans discovered some segfault-like behavior when using
    POE::Wheel::ReadLine on MSWin32. ActiveState Perl does not gracefully
    handle BEGIN{eval{}}, so the BEGIN{} parts were successfully removed. 

  2002-06-01 22:08:20 by rcaputo; POE/Loop/Poll.pm 1.2

    Increased the amount of debugging information when TRACE_SELECT is
    enabled. Part of the effort to make IO::Poll work on MSWin32. 

  2002-06-01 22:06:16 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.184

    Fixed the bug Ted Suzman reported on MSWin32 (re: SIGCHLD returning
    positive PIDs). Worked around the fact that IO::Poll is broken (or at
    least behaving inconsistent with its documentation) on MSWin32. 

  2002-06-01 22:04:25 by rcaputo; MANIFEST 1.67; t/28_windows.t 1.1

    Properly attributed Matt Sergeant (not Scott Beck) for IO::Poll
    support. Fixed the bug that Ted Suzman reported in Kernel.pm's
    SIGCHLD handling. True processes return positive PIDs, which were
    being treated as inconsistencies in POE::Kernel. Added a regression
    test for this condition.

  2002-05-30 06:40:13 by rcaputo; MANIFEST 1.66; POE.pm 1.137;
  POE/Kernel.pm 1.183; POE/Loop/Poll.pm 1.1; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.9;
  t/08_errors.t 1.34; t/27_poll.t 1.1

    Matt Sergeant contributed POE::Kernel::Poll, an event loop substrate
    based on IO::Poll. IO::Poll is potentially faster than select() in
    large scale servers (and other multi-connection programs). I also
    tweaked a description in the 5005 Makefile so the intent of some
    modules is more clear. Test 27_poll.t is neat, and I'm glad that it
    works. It reruns test 04_selects.t with IO::Poll loaded, forcing
    POE::Kernel::Poll to be used instead of POE::Kernel::Select. 

  2002-05-30 06:29:40 by rcaputo; t/12_signals_ev.t 1.15

    Try to make the skip message so friendly that Windows users don't
    wonder whether they should install Event.pm. 

  2002-05-29 05:27:05 by rcaputo; POE/Preprocessor.pm 1.28

    Added the ability to dump files with expanded macros. This should let
    perlapp and perl2exe "compile" POE programs now. 

  2002-05-29 05:25:53 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.182

    Moved C<use POE::Preprocessor;> to the top of C<package POE::Kernel;>
    so it would see all of the code therein. The "# include" directives
    are incompatible with the new POE::Preprocessor dump feature, so I
    removed them. 

  2002-05-29 05:24:10 by rcaputo; POE/Loop/Event.pm 1.16;
  POE/Loop/Gtk.pm 1.16; POE/Loop/Select.pm 1.26; POE/Loop/Tk.pm 1.21;
  POE/NFA.pm 1.16; POE/Session.pm 1.78; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.18

    Moved the C<use POE::Preprocessor;> statement to the top of each
    package it was in. This lets the preprocessor (and the resulting
    expanded files) include everything in the package. 

  2002-05-28 22:53:23 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.181

    Applied some of the feedback from Android18, errr, and hdm on #poe.
    These are minor doc patches to clarify some finer points. 

  2002-05-28 22:49:15 by rcaputo
  POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.32; t/08_errors.t 1.33

    I patched POE::Wheel::Run to use POE::Filter::Line by default. This
    broke a subtest in t/08_errors.t when previously illegal usage became
    okay. Heh! 

  2002-05-28 22:46:06 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.34

    My previous "fixes" for FollowTail weren't very good. This set of
    fixes seems to work much better in tests. The problem? Not properly
    detecting when log files were reset. In the process of fixing it,
    more debugging information was added, and the BUGS were updated. 

  2002-05-28 02:01:26 by rcaputo; t/08_errors.t 1.32

    Skipped more Wheel::Run based tests. 

  2002-05-28 02:00:44 by rcaputo; t/04_selects.t 1.14

    The new select bug test failed on Win32 because it assumed select()
    and non-blocking I/O worked on plain files. Fixed it to use a socket
    instead, which Windows can cope with. 

  2002-05-28 01:59:48 by rcaputo
  t/01_sessions.t 1.18; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.23

    Make the Win32 skip messages a little friendlier. 

  2002-05-27 21:53:17 by rcaputo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.8

    Re-revised the module categories. I know it's silly to think there
    ever will be a wording that will satisfy everyone, but still I try.
    :) 

  2002-05-27 21:52:24 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.17

    ReadLine now assumes vt100 if a TERM environment variable isn't set. 

  2002-05-27 21:49:51 by rcaputo; POE/Filter/Reference.pm 1.24

    Document how easy it is to use YAML with Filter::Reference. Damn,
    that's sexy. 

  2002-05-27 21:48:24 by rcaputo
  POE/Component/Client/TCP.pm 1.13; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.21

    Standardized the semantics of Filter and ClientFilter. Both may now
    take a POE::Filter class instance or name. For class names, they try
    building a standard (no parameters) instance of the class internally. 

  2002-05-27 21:36:31 by rcaputo; POE/Session.pm 1.77

    Fixed a typo that Kane found in the docs. 

  2002-05-27 02:35:54 by rcaputo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.7

    ttyS on IRC was confused about the "Optional Full-Screen Child
    Process Support" message, so I revised them all to be a little less
    dense. 

  2002-05-25 19:45:36 by rcaputo
  POE/Kernel.pm 1.180; t/04_selects.t 1.13

    Scott Beck discovered a long-standing (but rarely, if ever heretofore
    tickled) bug in POE::Kernel's _internal_select(). I tracked it down
    to a leftover hash key that wasn't removed when necessary.
    POE::Kernel now deletes it, and t/04_selects.t has a new test. 

  2002-05-24 21:00:20 by rcaputo
  POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.31; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.22

    After spending several days beating my head against the fork/exec
    paradigm on Win32, I have finally concluded that it is not
    consistently implemented from one Windows version to the next, making
    it a veritable nightmare of twisty variations to work around. Neither
    IPC::Open2, IPC::Open3, nor IPC::Run work across the myriad flavors
    of "Win32", and I have neither the time nor inclination to attempt
    success where three such modules-- all dedicated to performing this
    very task, and it alone-- have failed. Arf fthagn poit! (Anyone who
    does have the time or inclination to fix it is welcome to, though.) 

  2002-05-24 20:55:52 by rcaputo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.6

    Increase the required version for ExtUtils::AutoInstall. 

  2002-05-23 12:45:19 by rcaputo
  POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.30; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.21

    Added ARG4 to Wheel::Run's ErrorEvent. This extra parameter indicates
    the child filehandle that generated the error. For example, "read"
    error "0" on "STDOUT" means that the child's STDOUT was closed. I
    also updated the Wheel::Run test to use CloseEvent instead of signals
    to detect when a child was done. 

  2002-05-22 22:38:37 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/Run.pm 1.29

    I added CloseEvent to Wheel::Run. This should address a long-standing
    issue where it was difficult to tell when child processes were done
    sending information. 

  2002-05-22 19:06:10 by rcaputo; POE/Driver/SysRW.pm 1.20

    Remove a spurious $|=1 leftover from testing. 

  2002-05-22 18:48:50 by rcaputo; POE/NFA.pm 1.15; POE/Session.pm 1.76

    Differentiate between package and object methods in an error message. 

  2002-05-22 01:41:04 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.179

    Made some of the TRACE_SELECT warnings a little more descriptive. 

  2002-05-21 23:02:22 by rcaputo; MANIFEST 1.65;
  lib/ExtUtils/AutoInstall.pm 1.1; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.5

    Moved ExtUtils::AutoInstall to a location where it may be found with
    a simple "use" statement. Also upgraded it to 0.32. 

  2002-05-21 22:58:52 by rcaputo; t/09_wheels_unix.t 1.11

    Make the "Windows don't do dat!" message a little more professional. 

  2002-05-21 22:51:22 by rcaputo; t/06_tk.t 1.34

    I confirmed that Tk's fileevent watchers are broken on Win32. POE's
    Tk I/O tests fail without any reads, and the test is being run under
    Win32, assume that the installed Tk is a broken one. In that case,
    skip the tests rather than fail them. For all other situations
    (including working Tk on Win32), the tests should behave normally. 

  2002-05-21 02:26:01 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.33

    While writing a sample program for POE's cookbook, I found that
    POE::Wheel::FollowTail would detect log resets even when none
    happened. I revised the way log file resets are detected, and it
    seems to work much better now. 

  2002-05-20 19:18:01 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.16

    Ekkis found a system where POSIX::Termios::getospeed() on STDIN
    returned undef. Default the terminal output speed to 38400 in this
    case. 

  2002-05-19 02:52:15 by rcaputo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.4

     Fixed the filename in the auto-generated CHANGES magic. That's still
    commented out, though. "make dist" will fail if CHANGES isn't there
    already; this is because it's in MANIFEST, and the Makefile won't
    build an incomplete tarball. Added a bit of code to touch the CHANGES
    file so it always exists after "perl Makefile.PL". That's also
    commented out for now. 

  2002-05-18 04:10:02 by rcaputo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.3

    Thanks to sungo, I was able to add magic to automatically generate
    CHANGES from the cvs log. Requires a local copy of cvs2cl.pl. The
    magic is commented out, however. We'll be hand-rolling CHANGES
    through the next release since there's already much custom change doc
    lovin' going on there. 

  2002-05-18 03:59:03 by rcaputo; POE/Driver/SysRW.pm 1.19

    Peter Barabas was going through POE's source and uncovered a logic
    anomaly :) in Driver::SysRW. I made the logic clearer and hopefully
    more correct, and I documented a strangeness between what's expected
    of sysread() and what actually happens. 

  2002-05-17 01:34:19 by sungo; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.2

    default the gtk/tk/event tests to not installing all their deps 

  2002-05-17 01:32:48 by sungo; Makefile.PL 1.23

    drop the spurious warn from the makefile 

  2002-05-15 18:21:54 by rcaputo; Makefile.PL 1.22

    Tone down the old-Perl warning. POE hasn't deprecated 5.004 just yet. 

  2002-05-15 17:44:12 by rcaputo; Makefile.PL 1.21

    Change the deprecation warning back to pre-5.005_03. It was at
    pre-5.005_05 for testing. 

  2002-05-15 17:38:47 by rcaputo; MANIFEST 1.64; Makefile.PL 1.20;
  lib/Makefile-5004.pm 1.1; lib/Makefile-5005.pm 1.1

    Added sungo's makefile magic.

    Various work-arounds for fork() not being supported under MacOS 9.x. 

  2002-05-11 12:52:44 by rcaputo
  POE/Kernel.pm 1.178; POE/Session.pm 1.75; samples/tk.perl 1.8

    Deprecate _signal event, and by association using _default to handle
    signals. 

  2002-05-10 12:14:40 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.177

    Alter ssid macro so it won't expand in a comment. 

  2002-05-10 01:42:35 by rcaputo; POE/Component/Server/TCP.pm 1.20

    Removed use of deprecated SuccessState and FailureState. Made them
    SuccessEvent and FailureEvent instead. 

  2002-05-10 01:41:29 by rcaputo; t/01_sessions.t 1.17;
  t/02_alarms.t 1.10; t/03_aliases.t 1.7; t/07_event.t 1.13

    Remove implicit signal handling from the tests. 

  2002-05-10 01:40:26 by rcaputo; lib/deptest.perl 1.19

    Remove mandatory tracing on Solaris since nobody has reported the
    problem it was supposed to help track down for a while. 

  2002-05-10 01:39:04 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/FollowTail.pm 1.32;
  POE/Wheel/ListenAccept.pm 1.25; POE/Wheel/ReadWrite.pm 1.59;
  POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.55

    Begin the next phase of FooState parameter deprecation in the POE
    wheels. Now any use of FooState causes a carp. 

  2002-05-10 01:36:13 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.176

    Make TRACE_ and ASSERT_FOO output more friendly.

    Add sig_handled() and set things in motion for implicit signal
    handling deprecations.

    Document sig_handled() and finish documenting the changed signal
    handling semantics. 

  2002-04-12 21:06:27 by rcaputo; t/25_detach.t 1.3

    Sessions just happened to be destroyed in the proper order for the
    test to succeed, however, the order depeneded on the position of code
    and memory use patterns. Altering signal dispatch changed the way
    memory was used (and sessions were destroyed), uncovering the
    problem. Revised the test to prevent nondeterministic session
    destruction from causing future problems. 

  2002-04-12 21:04:06 by rcaputo; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.19

    Add debugging information so that signal dispatch could be monitored.
    This is part of the three-phase signal dispatch changes. 

  2002-04-12 21:03:20 by rcaputo; t/08_errors.t 1.30

    Three-phase signal dispatch added new constants to POE::Kernel. Clean
    those constants out of the package between error tests. 

  2002-04-12 21:02:31 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.175

    Implement three-phase signal dispatch.

  2002-03-26 00:23:45 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.136

    Increase version to 0.19 

  2002-03-26 00:20:37 by rcaputo; lib/deptest.perl 1.18

    Add blib and blib/lib to lib/deptest.perl, making it more useful for
    other modules. 

  2002-03-05 00:06:21 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.174

    Tweak the language in a comment. Nothing functional has changed. 

  2002-03-05 00:02:42 by rcaputo; t/22_wheel_run.t 1.18

    A half-hearted attempt at getting the test working on Win32. 

  2002-03-04 23:59:18 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.15

    Rocco found and fixed a circular reference that prevented it (and
    thus programs) from exeting cleanly. 

  2002-03-04 23:56:49 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/Curses.pm 1.10

    Turn blocking back on for STDIN, or some curses libraries won't
    properly refresh the display.

  POE/Pipe.pm 1.4; POE/Pipe/OneWay.pm 1.9; POE/Pipe/TwoWay.pm 1.11

    Apply TonyC's suggestion for improved Win32 compatibility. 

  2002-03-04 23:46:43 by rcaputo; POE.pm 1.135

    Updated Windows and MacOS support info. in POE's man page. 

  2002-02-25 21:45:27 by rcaputo; POE/Kernel.pm 1.173

    Wrap binmode() in eval so that it won't die if a tied filehandle
    doesn't support it. Don't call fcntl() on tied filehandles because
    that leads to death also. 

  2002-02-25 06:02:58 by rcaputo
  POE/Kernel.pm 1.172; POE/Wheel/SocketFactory.pm 1.54

    Wrap binmode() in eval{} because tied filehandle classes may die in
    it or fail to implement it altogether. Both of those conditions will
    cause a fatal runtime error. 

  2002-02-17 19:05:50 by rcaputo; POE/Wheel/ReadLine.pm 1.14

    Made ReadLine use a private copy of STDIN and STDOUT so that
    redirecting them won't interfere with the console. 

  2002-02-17 19:03:44 by rcaputo; POE/NFA.pm 1.14

    Add CALLER_FILE and CALLER_LINE parameters. Add a get_runstate()
