1.0 SCOPE

This paragraph identifies and provides an overview of the released files.

1.1 Identification

This release, identified in 3.2, is a collection of Perl modules that extend the capabilities of the Perl language.

1.2 System overview

The "Data::Startup" module extends the Perl language (the system).

Many times there is a group of subroutines that can be tailored by different situations with a few, say global variables. However, global variables pollute namespaces, become mangled when the functions are multi-threaded and probably have many other faults that it is not worth the time discovering.

As well documented in literature, object oriented programming do not have these faults. This program module class of objects provide the objectized options for a group of subroutines or encapsulated options by using the methods directly as in an option object.

1.3 Document overview.

This document releases Data::Startup version 0.04 providing a description of the inventory, installation instructions and other information necessary to utilize and track this release.

3.3 Changes

Changes are as follows:

Data::Startup 0.01

Originated

Data::Startup 0.02

FAILURE:

 From: "Thurn, Martin" <martin.thurn@ngc.com> 
 Date: Thu, 29 Apr 2004 09:21:20 -0400 (EDT) 
 Subject: FAIL Data-Startup-0.01 sun4-solaris 2.8 

I noticed that the test suite seem to fail without these modules: Data::SecsPack

CORRECTION:

Added Data::SecsPack to the test library. The test Perl site lib only was corrupted and had a Data::SecsPack install else c<vmake> would of failed. Remove Data::SecsPack from the test Perl only site lib.

Data::Startup 0.03

Replaced Data::SecsPack wit Data::Str2Num in test library. The Data::Secs2 package used form comparisions now only includes Data::SecsPack if it needs to pack numbers in accordance with SEMI E5.

Reworked the new subroutine so that it specifically handles the case of no inputs and only accepts an array with even number of members to initialize an option hash.

Data::Startup 0.04

Add capability to the override subroutine so that it may handle hashes as well as object references for the first argument. This adds a subroutine interface to the object interface.

3.4 Adaptation data.

This installation requires that the installation site has the Perl programming language installed. There are no other additional requirements or tailoring needed of configurations files, adaptation data or other software needed for this installation particular to any installation site.
