Revision history for Perl extension Hustle::Table
v0.6.0  2023-06-07
    - Regular expressions from non core regexp engines are now processed as a
      regexp directly. Previously these would not be detected, and assumed a
      string to then be compiled into a core regexp
    - Added github actions to repo
    - Added test for regexp matching with a no capture groups
    - Added test for regexp matching with a capture group not capturing
    - captures are now copied into a new array and not a shared array across the table.
    - captures are now returned as per the documentation for regexps with no
      captured items (i.e ref to empty array, instead of undef)
    - Turn off 'not numeric' warnings in main table code to remove noise when
      testing a string input against a numeric matcher

    - Typo fixes.
    - Add a section on new non core Regexp improvements

0.5.5 	Wed 17 Aug 2022 15:14:43 AEST
	- Added subroutine matching type. A CODE ref can be used to match the input.
	  Called with the input as the first argument and a reference to the entry value
	  as the second element

	- Fixed bug where default matcher could not be updated with hash or array via
	  the add method. An exuberant croak test/call prevented the adding of
	  an entry when the matcher was 'undef'. An undef matcher actually
	  represents the default matcher (match any). Prior to this fix only
	  explicit set_default method would update default matcher.

	- Fixed documentation around required elements when adding via array
	  ref should take 3 elements. Was listed as 6

	- Reduced scope creation for more performance improvements

0.5.4 	Thu 28 Jul 2022 21:40:32 AEST
	- Performance improvements
		- Dispatcher no longer returns an ref to an empty array
		  with non regex matcher types.
		- Removed superfluous scope creation in dispatcher
		- Moved my variable out of dispatcher sub
	- Improved dispatch matching performance
		- 1.70x approx for static exact matches
		- 1.15x approx for regex matches

	- Compatibility update for Template::Plex v0.4.2

0.5.1   Sat  2 Apr 2022 21:01:36 AEST
	- Bump min perl version to 5.26 for @{^CAPTURE} variable

	- Default matcher type is updated to undef to allow cached matcher to do regex match
	- Cleaned up tests

0.5.0 	Thu 31 Mar 2022 20:15:33 AEST
	- Major rewrite
	- Simplified and restricted scope
	- Table entry stores any scalar value, not just code references
	- Regex, begin, end, exact and numeric matchers

	- Removed usages of given/when and replaced with if/else/and in generated code
	- Matching is now always performed via a regex.
	- Uncached "online" dispatcher gained a 10-20% performance boost
	- Using Template::Plex template to make the code more readable
	- Removed unused code

0.3.0	Fri 10 Sep 2021 11:54:43 AEST
	- First argument to dispatched code ref is table entry not string being matched (< v0.2.3) 
	- Updated test to utilise new first argument
