    • Tty.pm: v0.94_01
    • test.pl: adapted to new interface
    • Tty.xs: reverted to opening slave at creation time; added debug printfs (open_slave): use ptsname_r if there, forget about erroneous ttyname. (allocate_pty): added name param on openpty (doesn't take NULL for name)
  • 2001-11-28 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • Tty.pm: v0.92_04

  • 2001-11-27 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • Tty.pm: v0.92_03
    • Tty.xs (BOOT): removed export_fail, undefined constants are now undef instead of not exportable; added CONFIG variable.
    • Makefile.PL: added setting of CONFIG var
    • test.pl: added printing of CONFIG var
    • Pty.pm (spawn): fixed bug with $^W handling
  • 2001-11-17 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • Tty.xs (pty_allocate): complete rewrite, based on ideas from openssh and Xemacs. Tries all ways detected by Makefile.PL in order, so in theory it should work everywhere (modulo system quirks). First tries the high-level openpty() before getpt(), then various clone devices and finally BSD-style ptys.
    • Tty.xs (open_slave): moved master init stuff here, must be done before opening the slave. The Stream module pushes are now tried on all systems but only generate warnings on systems that we know need them.
    • Makefile.PL: added tests for all kinds of functions and clone devices.
  • 2001-11-14 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • Tty.xs (MODULE): stole creation code from openssh
    • test.pl: added test for controlling terminal
    • Pty.pm (spawn): rearranged setsid() and added a fresh open of the slave pty so the pty becomes the controlling terminal for the process.
  • 2001-10-25 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • Pty.pm (spawn): copied spawning process from Tcl/Expect (thanks, Don!); should set the controlling tty so ssh and other password requesting programs should be OK; also now returns exec errors. (slave_pid): added method to get at PID of spawned process.
    • Makefile.PL: added TIOCCONS.
    • try: adapted to use spawn().
    • test.pl: adapted to use spawn(); added test for exec errors.
  • 2001-10-16 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • Pty.pm (new): fixed bad my() line
    • automatically add IO::Stty to ISA if it exists.
  • 2001-07-16 Roland Giersig <rgiersig@cpan.org>
    • test.pl: finally some tests! Spawns a perl mini-script that echoes back all characters from STDIN, but inverted.
    • Pty.pm (slave): slave now is set to be a controlling tty if possible; it also remembers it's name now.
    • Makefile.PL:
      • on SCO, the slave pts* are in the /dev dir, not /dev/pts
      • added test for libutil.h, util.h, pty.h and openpty()
      • added symbol TIOCSCTTY
    • Tty.xs:
      • some SVR4 only define __SVR4; fixed.
      • OSF machines need termio.h for various macros
      • AIX doesn't define VOIDSIG; fixed.
      • Cygwin can use /dev/ptmx even though that file doesn't exist.
      • added openpty() version for FreeBSD and others that have no good method for creating ptys; untested.
    • Tty.pm:
      • moved docu over from Pty.pm to lessen confusion Pty <-> Tty
      • added verified systems list
  • Change 588 on 2000/09/04 by <gbarr@pobox.com> (Graham Barr)
    • Check for /dev/ptmx and /dev/pts instead of testing defined(SVR4)
  • Change 587 on 2000/09/04 by <gbarr@pobox.com> (Graham Barr)
    • Make ttyname just warn when it is not implemented instead of croak
  • Change 586 on 2000/09/04 by <gbarr@pobox.com> (Graham Barr)
    • Include <sys/modem.h> for HPUX
  • Change 585 on 2000/09/04 by <gbarr@pobox.com> (Graham Barr)
    • Makefile.PL
    • Fix to how cc is called
  • Change 461 on 2000/03/29 by <gbarr@pobox.com> (Graham Barr)
    • Release 0.03
  • Change 460 on 2000/03/29 by <gbarr@pobox.com> (Graham Barr)

    • Removed the need for Configure by implementing a test in Makefile.PL
    • The existance of constants are now checked at import time, so @EXPORT had to be renamed to @EXPORT_OK. ie noting is imported by default
