Written by: Sullivan Beck (firstname.lastname@example.org) Any suggestions, bug reports, or donations :-) should be sent to me. 3.02 2018-11-08 - Fixed one more test that failed. RT 127604 3.01 2018-11-08 - Fixed two tests that failed everywhere. RT 127596 3.00 2018-11-07 - Significant rewrite of including several backward incompatible changes. o The return value of the run method (in run and script modes) is strictly a scalar. The return value in script-mode is now an error code instead of the output. o Similarly, the return values of the ssh method are now hashes for all modes. o Removed the 'dire' option from the flush method. Added the 'out' option. o Error codes cleaned up. The commands are now numbered from 1-N instead of 2-(N+1). Some special error codes are now formalized and documented. o Scripts are ALWAYS stored in a temporary script file o Removed the 'f-output' global option o Removed the 'flow' global option (deprecated in 2.10) - Complete rework of how output is handled in 'script' mode The output is no longer returned when running in script mode o Added the output method o Added the per-command label option. o Removed the f-output per-command option. - Many improvements to the generated scripts 2.13 2017-02-10 - Got rid of global data (stuck it in the object) to avoid problems when calling multiple times. 2.12 2016-08-22 - Improved test scripts, and added a number of new tests. - Getting `pwd` in a directory with soft links was failing. RT 117096 2.11 2016-07-05 - Fixed a packaging problem (a .swp file got included) - Added support for while/done, until/done, and for/done flow structures. 2.10 2016-07-01 - Fixed bug where the generated list of commands would not return you to the original directory. - Fixed a bug in env command which wasn't returning the documented values. - Revamped how scripts are generated (scripts are a bit simpler and have the potential to better support flow commands). - Fixed a bug where flow commands weren't handled correctly with failure=display. - Deprecated the command option 'flow'. It is determined by parsing the command instead. The option 'flow' is allowed, but totally ignored and will be removed at some point in the future. - Currently only support if/elif/else/fi flow structure, but more will be added in the future. 2.03 2015-12-08 - Put distro on GitHub. Gabor Szabo - Improvements to POD formatting. - Added tmp_script, tmp_script_keep, ssh_script, and ssh_script_keep options. 2.02 2014-05-22 - Fixed a bug where script output was not getting handled correctly 2.01 2014-04-03 - Updated example files for 2.xx (forgot to do then when 2.00 was released) - Fixed a bug where the dire option was getting lowercased - Some simple fixes to avoid a warning and unwanted blank lines 2.00 2014-03-06 - Significant rewrite including several backwards incompatible changes. changed script generating routines to be cleaner generated script is now simpler to read - Bug where exit code wasn't getting set correctly by script - Change several options including: changed 'run' option to 'mode' changed 'f-output' values to not start with 'f-': changed 'simple' to 'script' and adjusted meaning changed 'echo' option (no longer applies to 'script' mode) changed 'failure' option slightly (no longer refers to 'simple' option) - Output of running in script mode changed (in a backward incompatible way) - The dire/env methods can now query current values - Added mode method 1.12 2013-12-06 - New options: ssh_sleep, check 1.11 2013-10-31 - Replaced 'declare' with a more standard way of doing arithmetic since declare broke on several systems. - Changed HISTORY file to new Changes specification. Suggested by RT 89910. 1.10 2013-10-30 - Better handling of 'flow' lines. - Rewrite of script generating lines to be much cleaner. - Several new options: global options: failure, simple per-command options: noredir, retry, sleep 1.00 2013-09-13 - Initial release.
