Revision history for Perl extension Parse::Win32Registry. ** 0.25 2006-11-12 Fixed bug in creation of WinNT key objects when parsing offsets to parent keys. Test data for Windows NT registry keys updated with valid parent key offsets. Internally, the path to a key is now stored as a list instead of a string. ** 0.24 2006-10-29 Key objects now have a get_path method, which returns the path to that key from the root key of a registry file. Documentation updated to describe the new method. dumpreg.pl updated to use get_path. The prefix_pattern and long_prefix_pattern configuration options from Getopt::Long have been dropped. The node type check for Windows NT registry keys now accepts 0x00 in addition to 0x20 and 0x2c. Tests updated to check paths for keys. ** 0.23 2006-08-13 Key objects now have the get_timestamp and get_timestamp_as_string methods, although only Windows NT registry keys will return valid values. print_summary nows also displays the timestamp for Windows NT registry keys. Documentation updated to reflect this. Tests for the support functions added decode_win32_filetime, as_iso8601, and hexdump added. Updated the key tests to check timestamps. Makefile.pl now installs the dumpreg.pl script. ** 0.22 2006-08-06 Included the script dumpreg.pl as both a tool for examining registry files, and as an example. print_summary now displays 'subkeys' instead of 'keys' to make it clear what it was referring to. Offsets that require adjustment by fixed amounts (this applies to entries in the RGKN block of Windows 95 registry files and to all entries in the hbin blocks of Windows NT registry files) are now amended before being stored, rather than at seek time. More comprehensive tests have been added. Troubleshooting section added to the documentation. ** 0.21 2006-07-30 Checks added after every sysread, and an attempt made to improve the error messages presented. Internal error messages have been made distinct from errors generated when parsing invalid data. The code that looks up the RGDB entry for Win95 keys has been revised to remove some duplicate code. It's still too long. The use of substr and unpack when parsing new NT keys and values has been reduced. Reading REG_DWORD values which are not the expected four bytes in length no longer results in an exception. Similarly, get_data now returns undef for these values instead of failing. get_data_as_string updated to return (no data) when get_data returns an empty string, and (invalid data) when get_data returns undef (which should only occur for invalid REG_DWORD values). The undocumented print_debug methods have been updated and added to. Win95 keys and values could already dump their on-disk structures; now WinNT keys and values can dump their on-disk structures, and WinNT keys can dump their offset lists. Registry files are now opened using the three-argument version of open. ** 0.20 2006-07-23 Released to CPAN.
