- Trying once again to fix the compile test on windows

Version 0.1630:

- Add missing URI::Escape dependency

Version 0.1629:
- Add standard tests
- Fix compatibility issue with newer versions of perl, which remove "." from

Version 0.1628: Sat May 2 2015
- Prevent CPAN from indexing private-lib

Version 0.1627: Mon Apr 20 2015
- Clarify licensing terms
- Move verbose testing to a private module, and implement it in a way that
  doesn't require editing the Makefile after it is generated.
- Require File::Slurp instead of including it, to avoid potential problems 
  like this: 
- Fix tests so that they don't prematurely delete the temp file
  See for example:

Version 0.1626: Sun Apr 12 2015
- Enable verbose testing for CPAN-testers
- Consolidate issue tracking at

Version 0.1625: Sat Apr 4 2015
- Modify the memory leak test to check for <= 0 bytes. I'm not sure how this
  scenario happens, but test failures like this indicate that it can:
- Attempt to fix loss of lines when $/ is undef. Thanks to Nigel Horne for the
  automated testing that found the failure.

Version 0.1624: Sun Mar 22 2015
- Moved code to github
- Added POD test
- Improve testability of binmode_bug.t, stdin_tell_bug.t
- Implement a potential fix for test failures where FileHandle::getline()
	seems to be reading a single line even though $/ is undef. Unfortunately I
	can't reproduce this failure, so I'll submit and check the CPAN Testers
- Use "local $/" instead of reassigning global $/. Perhaps this is somehow
	related to the test failures above?
- Improve documentation for input_record_separator()

Version 0.1623: Sun Aug 9 2009
- Fixed a bug where files with binary data would sometimes cause an
	unitialized value warning at line 394 as well as incorrect behavior. (Thanks
	to Bill Nugent <> for the bug report and initial patch.)
- Removed unused ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes, which doesn't exist anymore
	anyway. (Thanks to Slaven Rezić <> for the bug report.)

Version 0.1622: Wed Jul 16 2008
- Updated to the latest version of Module::Install
- Removed auto-install for better compatibility with CPAN and others
- Moved hosting to Google Code

Version 0.1621:
- Improved compatibility with versions of Perl older than 5.6.0, by replacing
  "use bytes" with "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes". (Thanks to
  <> for the bug report.)
- Fixed test case error reporting for tests that fail to fork. (Thanks to
  <> for the test failure report.)
- Fixed unexpected success of binmode_bug.t test on Windows 2000. (Thanks to
  Max Maischein <> for the bug report.)
- Fixed a bug in stdin_tell_bug.t. (Thanks to Max Maischein
  <> for the bug report.)

Version 0.1620: Tue Dec 21 2004
- Fixed version numbers, which were incompatible with some modules. (Thanks to
  Tassilo von Parseval <> for the bug
- Switched to Test::More for better test reporting
- Removed the use of the "English" module to work around a bug that exists in
  some versions of Perl. See for more info. (Thanks
  to Jim Longino <> for the bug report.)

Version 0.16.1: Thu Sep 16 2004
- Added missing inc/ dependency

Version 0.16.0: Wed Sep 15 2004
- Fixed stdin_tell_bug.t so that it's more platform-dependent. (Martin Thurn
  <> reports that Solaris 2.8 returns 0 instead of -1).
- Added filehandle-specific input_record_separator capability (Feature
  suggestion by David Muir Sharnoff <>)
- Changed Makefile.PL to use Module::Install

Version 0.15:
- Switched from WeakRef to Scalar::Util, which is included in recent versions
  of Perl. (Thanks to Joey Hess <> for the suggestion and
- Fixed a bug involving pipes and tell(), where tell() would cause following
  operations to fail. (Thanks to Karol Szafranski <> for
  the bug report.)
- Added new_from_fd support (Thanks to Karol Szafranski <>
  for the bug report.)
- Fixed a bug in which <$fh> would always behave as if called in a list
  context after the first such call.

Version 0.14:
- Fixed an incompatibility with perl 5.6.1 and Data::Dumper. (Thanks to Jason
  Brunette <> for the bug report and patch.)
- Fixed a bug in the seek.t test case which would cause failure on Windows
  (Thanks to for the bug report.)
- Fixed a memory leak. (Thanks to Jason Brunette
  <> for taking the time to not only file the
  bug report, but also do a lot of work to track down the cause.) For now I'm
  using WeakRef to deal with circular references. If anyone can tell me how to
  get rid of them entirely I'd be grateful. See the discussion here:

Version 0.13:
- Added detection for a case in which a Perl bug will be exercised on Windows.
  Also added a test case (binmode_bug.t) to demonstrate it. See the BUGS
  section of the documentation.
- Added a couple new test cases.

Version 0.12:
- Changed the filehandle detection scheme so that filehandles created using
  Symbol::gensym would be detected correctly. (Thanks to Tassilo von Parseval
  <> for finding the bug)
- Fixed a bug in getline and getlines which would cause the routines to not
  return undef at the end of the file. (Thanks to Tassilo von Parseval
  <> for finding the bug)
- Fixed a potential bug in seek which would cause the module to not intercept
  the seek call following a previous seek call with an invalid whence

Version 0.11:
- Fixed uninitialized value warnings
- Create SourceForge project

Version 0.10:
- Initial version
