Consolidator 2. Iterator 2.017 -- More pod fix ups.. more to come -- updated Data-Range-Compare-Stream-Sort.t the code wasn't broken the tests were.. perl versions prior to 5.8 used quick sort: The unit tests have been updated to reflect this. 2.018 -- Updated some examples -- More pod fixups -- Added new Consolidate class The new class dynamically adds columns to the iterator object based on column overlaps! -- Added new Compare package -- Added new support classe(s) -- added new result sub classe(s) -- Most classes and pods have been extended and or updated, no compatibility changes, just added alot of what was missing 2.019 -- More pod Fopas cleaned up. -- bug fix: AdjacentAsc.pm did not call on_consolidate, this has been fixed 2.020 -- More pod clean ups.. SOME OME SAVE ME FROM THIS MONSTER KNOWN AS DOCUMENTATION!!!! It feeds on my time, so much time! -- Bug fix: implemented the column id related interfaces in Compare::Base.pm -- Added a true LayerCake example in the examples folder. -- Will make cookbook pod in a future release explaining it. 3.021 -- added callback Data::Range::Compare::Stream* to support knowing when a range has been generated -- Changed the constructor arguments Compare/Result.pm -- added ColumnRelations Features to Compare/Result.pm -- Added several optimizations to the Comapre::Asc that should help when dealing with large numbers of columns -- Resovled race condition preventing root_id from being set in iterators when columns were auto generated -- Consolidate objects no longer support set_root_column_id -- Added a consolidator->consolidator fill missnig class -- Added support to Compare/Asc.pm to allow for deletion of iterator objects. -- created new result base class -- updated iterator base classes and pods -- ColumnRelations.pm has been removed! -- Consolidate/Result.pm has 2 new is_missing is_generated along with an updated set of constructor arguments -- Add generated state for existing consolidator objects! 3.022 -- all Consolidate iterators have been updated to allow any iterator as their argument -- added autosort option to Iterator/Array.pm -- Stream.pod More updates -- FillMissing.pod updated -- Sort.pod updated -- So it seems Test::More has had some major changes made to it.... most of the tests had to be updated to work around this. 3.023 -- Added an on disk only merge sort iterator package this means you can sort massive files on distk now! -- Iterator::Base now supports call back handlers as a result all iterator objects now support thse call back handlers -- Iterator::File updates -- Now supports passing in the NEW_FROM class argument to the constructor -- also gains all the nifty new features from the base class! -- Added an iterator stack interface. -- added an on disck stack allowing for uber big work flows to be handled in temp files. why a 2nd stack objects? one is for iterators the other is for files.. -- Compare::Asc -- added on dead callback -- added set_raw_result -- add get_raw_result -- delete_iterator bug fix( required for new interface Compare::Asc.pm->iterator_is_dead($id) ), no longer resets dead column -- add iterator_is_dead($id) 3.024 -- Bug fix for windows: File.pm and MergeSortAsc.pm resolved race condition that prevented temp files from being deleted! -- Pod clean ups for Compare::Result -- Added a BigFile Example to the examples folder 3.025 -- Minor tweak to Iterator::File.pm now only tries to close file handles it creates -- Added a base tempfile class -- Added tmpdir constructor argument to all classes that support temp files -- Cookook additions! YAY very long time in the making! -- Some pod clean ups -- Finally implemented the Data::Range::Compare::Stream->boolean interface -- Added an Iterator::Validate package -- Added a ValidateRanges.pl to the examples folder. -- added OutagesDurringBusinessDays.pl to the examples folder The example shows how to compute events durring regular business hours excluding holidays. -- LayerCake added a new constructor argument filter=>undef|code_ref LayerCake may acutally get some use now.. who knows. 3.026 -- Cookbook clean ups 4.027 -- In general, standardized the NEW_FROM new_from iterator interface options to factory_instance This fundimental change, can break compatibility with older code, so as a fair warning the version is being shifted to a 4.x generation release -- Added how to compare date ranges for overlaps example See the examples folder -- Added common argument to all iterator and compare objects factory_instance=>$instance This superceeds NEW_FROM and all of its misc incarnations. -- Added Data::Range::Compare::Stream::CallBack Supports using a callback hash in the constructor much like the original Data::Range::Compare. 4.028 -- Bug fishing? -- This release was added to help track down some odd unit test deaths on cpan for the new Dynamic range compare object 4.029 -- README and TODO updates ( wish list completed! ) 4.030 -- Fixed rt.cpan.org bug https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=99946 -- fixed: example code showing up in the pause index.
