    3 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
    4 	* tests/expr-old.test: Re-wrote Tcl's [expr rand()] and [expr
    5 	srand($seed)] implementations, fixing a range error on some 64-bit
    6 	platforms. Added tests that detect the bug. The rewrite changes the
    7 	seed -> sequence map on 64-bit platforms, only for seed >= 2^31, a
    8 	slight incompatibility. [Bug 121072, Patch 102781]

   11 
   12 	* library/init.tcl:
   13 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl:
   14 	* library/msgcat/pkgIndex.tcl:
   15 	* library/opt/optparse.tcl:
   16 	* library/opt/pkgIndex.tcl: Where [uplevel] is used in a proc to
   17 	evaluate a Tcl built-in command in the caller's context, the built-in
   18 	commands are now fully namespace-qualified. This prevents problems
   19 	when the caller context is in a namespace where the built-in command
   20 	name has been used by a command in the namespace. (For example,
   21 	[::ns::set] might be called instead of the intended [::set]). [Bug
   22 	119422, Patch 102545]
   23 
   24 2000-12-09  Jeff Hobbs  <jhobbs@interwoven.com>
   25 
   26 	* win/tclWinTime.c (CalibrationThread): added lint return value to
   27 	prevent compiler warning. [Bug 125005]
   28 
   29 	* docs/scan.n:
   30 	* tests/scan.test:
   31 	* generic/tclScan.c (Tcl_ScanObjCmd): changed %o and %x to use strtoul
   32 	instead of strtol to correctly preserve scan<>format conversion of
   33 	large integers. [Patch 102663, Bug 124600]
   34 
   35 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Commited patch fixing
   36 	handling of {!<boolean>} in expressions. [Patch 102702]
   37 
   38 2000-12-08  Jeff Hobbs  <jhobbs@interwoven.com>
   39 
   40 	* library/init.tcl: Added support for PATHEXT variable in auto_execok,
   41 	recognizing the proper set of executable extensions on Windows. [Patch
   42 	102719]
   43 
   44 2000-12-08  Andreas Kupries  <a.kupries@westend.com>
   45 
   46 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (LoadTableEncoding): Changed dangerous code to
   47 	something less critical. This fixes [Bug 119417], part A without
   48 	affecting the speed when loading encodings.
   49 
   50 2000-12-08  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
   51 
   52 	* doc/open.n: Added xref to fconfigure and advice on the opening of
   53 	binary files. Should help prevent a recurrence of bugs like [Bug
   54 	124558]
   55 
   56 2000-12-07  Jeff Hobbs  <jhobbs@interwoven.com>
   57 
   58 	* generic/tcl.h: added note about need to updated
   59 	library/dde/pkgIndex.tcl with minor version increment.
   60 
   61 	* library/dde/pkgIndex.tcl: updated to use 84 version to reflect the
   62 	makefile. Should probably be updated to use its real version at some
   63 	point. [Patch 102560, Bug 119421]
   64 
   65 2000-12-06  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
   66 
   67 	* generic/tcl.h (attemptckalloc): Fixed typo for #define of
   68 	attemptckalloc (was defined to Tcl_AttempDbCkalloc, should have been
   69 	Tcl_AttemptDbCkalloc). [Bug 124384]
   70 
   71 	* generic/tclCkalloc.c: Added TCL_MEM_DEBUG versions of
   72 	Tcl_AttemptDbCkrealloc and Tcl_AttemptDbCkalloc. [Bug 124384].
   73 
   74 2000-11-24  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
   75 
   76 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Logical negation "!"  can
   77 	now handle string booleans, provided those values are placed in
   78 	variables.
   79 
   80 	* tests/expr.test (expr-13.17): Check that [expr {!$var}] can negate
   81 	the string-versions of booleans "yes", "false", etc.
   82 
   83 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl (getMatchingFiles,
   84 	(getMatchingDirectories):
   85 	* tools/man2html.tcl (doDir):
   86 	* tools/man2help.tcl (doDir):
   87 	* library/package.tcl (tclPkgUnknown,tclMacPkgSearch):
   88 	* library/safe.tcl (AddSubDirs): [glob] uses -directory instead of
   89 	unsafe [file join]. [Bug 123313]
   90 
   91 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c:
   92 	* generic/tclTestObj.c (TestindexobjCmd): Changed internal
   93 	representation of index objects to fix [Bug 119082]; fix shouldn't be
   94 	visible to outside world...
   95 
   96 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestGetIndexFromObjStructObjCmd):
   97 	* tests/indexObj.test: (indexObj-6.*) Added to test for presence of
   98 	[Bug 119082].
   99 
  100 2000-11-23  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
  101 
  102 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LsortObjCmd): Fixed memory leak from [Bug
  103 	119398]
  104 
  105 	* library/init.tcl (unknown): Added specific level parameters to
  106 	all uplevel invokations to boost performance; didn't dare touch
  107 	the "namespace inscope" stuff though, since it looks sensitive
  108 	to me!  Should fix [Bug 123217], though testing is tricky...
  109 
  110 2000-11-21  Andreas Kupries  <a.kupries@westend.com>
  111 
  112 	All of the changes below are described in TIP #7 ~ Specification and
  113 	result from the application of the patch contained therein. Creator of
  114 	the patch is Kevin Kenny <kennykb@crd.ge.com>. The patch used here is
  115 	actually a bit different. Two MS specific constant values (format
  116 	FOOui64) were replaced with a more portable formatting of the values
  117 	and an additional cast to LONGLONG. My cross-compiling gcc was unable
  118 	to process the original form. [Patch 102459]
  119 
  120 	* tclWinTime.c: Add to the static data a set of variables that manage
  121 	the phase-locked techniques, including a ''CRITICAL_SECTION'' to guard
  122 	them so that multi-threaded code is stable.
  123 
  124 	* tclWinTime.c: Modify ''TclpGetSeconds'' to call ''TclpGetTime'' and
  125 	return the 'seconds' portion of the result. This change is necessary
  126 	to make sure that the two times are consistent near the rollover from
  127 	one second to another.
  128 
  129 	* tclWinTime.c: Modify ''TclpGetClicks'' to use TclpGetTime to
  130 	determine the click count as a number of microseconds.
  131 
  132 	* tclWinTime.c: Modify ''TclpGetTime'' to return the time as M*Q+B,
  133 	where Q is the result of ''QueryPerformanceCounter'', and M and B are
  134 	variables maintained by the phase-locked loop to keep the result as
  135 	close as possible to the system clock. The ''TclpGetTime'' call will
  136 	also launch the phase-lock management in a separate thread the first
  137 	time that it is invoked. If the performance counter is unavailable, or
  138 	if its frequency is not one of the two common 8254-compatible rates,
  139 	then ''TclpGetTime'' will return the result of ''ftime'' as it does in
  140 	Tcl 8.3.2.
  141 
  142 	* tclWinTime.c: Add the clock calibration procedure. The calibration
  143 	is somewhat complex; to save space, the reader is referred to the
  144 	reference implementation for the details of how the time base and
  145 	frequency are maintained.
  146 
  147 	* tclWinNotify.c: Modify ''Tcl_Sleep'' to test that the process has,
  148 	in fact, slept for the requisite time by calling ''TclpGetTime'' and
  149 	comparing with the desired time. Otherwise, roundoff errors may cause
  150 	the process to awaken early.
  151 
  152 	* tclWinTest.c: Add a ''testwinclock'' command. This command returns a
  153 	four element list comprising the seconds and microseconds portions of
  154 	the system clock and the seconds and microseconds portions of the Tcl
  155 	clock.
  156 
  157 	* winTime.test: Add to the test suite a test that makes sure that the
  158 	Tcl clock stays within 1.1 ms of the system clock over the duration of
  159 	the test.
  160 
  161 2000-11-21  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
  162 
  163 	* doc/global.n:
  164 	* doc/upvar.n:
  165 	* doc/variable.n: Improved documentation to mention that variables so
  166 	created are listed in [info locals] and added a few more cross-links
  167 	between these commands. [Bug 119387]
  168 
  169 2000-11-17  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
  170 
  171 	* tests/safe.test: (safe-4.3):
  172 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclLookupVar): Changed again. Now passes all the
  173 	tests, though one needed modifying since it required the wrong answer.
  174 	(Why on earth do we have inline modification of argument strings? This
  175 	sort of thing is horrendous to debug and doesn't work well in a
  176 	multithreaded environment!) [Bug 119192]
  177 
  178 	* tests/var.test: (var-1.19) If my attempts to fix the problem aren't
  179 	right yet, my attempts to describe it look pretty good to me...
  180 
  181 2000-11-16  Andreas Kupries  <a.kupries@westend.com>
  182 
  183 	* win/tclWinPort.h (line 69): Changed reference to winsock2.h into
  184 	winsock.h. This was a leftover from a foray into using winsock version
  185 	2 (History lesson from Scott Redman and Jeff Hobbs). This code was no
  186 	problem when compiling Tcl itself, but could trip extensions. [Bug
  187 	122568]
  188 
  189 2000-11-15  Jeff Hobbs  <jeff.hobbs@acm.org>
  190 
  191 	* unix/Makefile.in: removed bp.c references (hasn't existed in a long
  192 	time). Corrected 'make dist' to make dist with unversioned library
  193 	directories (same as out of cvs), so make install works correctly with
  194 	either source tree.
  195 
  196 2000-11-15  Jeff Hobbs  <jeff.hobbs@acm.org>
  197 
  198 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclLookupVar): reverted fix below as it broke all
  199 	other array unset error reporting.  Bug 119192 is still open.
  200 
  201 2000-11-15  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
  202 
  203 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclLookupVar): Changed references to part2 to use
  204 	elName instead in various error message generating spots. [Bug 119192]
  205 
  206 2000-11-03  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  207 
  208 	* win/.cvsignore: Removed 'configure' from the glob list now that it's
  209 	included.
  210 
  211 2000-11-03  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  212 
  213 	8.4a2 RELEASE
  214 
  215 	* unix/Makefile.in (install-libraries, dist):
  216 	* win/makefile.vc (install-libraries):
  217 	* win/Makefile.in (install-libraries): updated to install unversioned
  218 	library directories into versioned directories.
  219 
  220 	* tools/tcl.wse.in: updated for unversioning of library dirs
  221 
  222 	* unix/mkLinks: updated mkLinks with latest doc updates
  223 
  224 	* doc/Tcl_Main.3: added docs for Tcl_SetMainLoop
  225 
  226 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  227 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
  228 	* generic/tcl.decls: added Tcl_SetMainLoop proc that allows people to
  229 	set a main loop that will run for tclsh.
  230 	* generic/tcl.h: added Tcl_MainLoopProc typedef
  231 	* generic/tclMain.c (Tcl_SetMainLoop, StdinProc, Prompt): new
  232 	StdinProc and Prompt static procs and Tcl_SetMainLoop stubs proc. The
  233 	first two handle a fileevent based prompt (taken from tkMain.c).
  234 	Tcl_SetMainLoop enables the interactive setting of a main loop
  235 	procedure. This enables Tk to be a loadable package.
  236 
  237 2000-11-02  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  238 
  239 	* generic/tclEvent.c: tclLibraryPath Tcl_Obj didn't have a way to
  240 	share its data among threads. This caused Tcl_Init() to always fail in
  241 	threads. Added a way to pass the data around with a global char*.
  242 	[BUG: 5301]
  243 
  244 2000-11-02  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  245 
  246 	* unix/configure:
  247 	* unix/dltest/configure:
  248 	* win/configure:
  249 	* tools/configure: checked in configure scripts so people doing CVS
  250 	checkouts aren't required to have autoconf. Changes to configure.in in
  251 	the future will require the corresponding configure script to also be
  252 	re-autoconf'ed and checked in.
  253 
  254 	* win/makefile.vc:
  255 	* win/tcl.m4: makefile fixes for Win64 support
  256 
  257 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (Tcl_GetIndexFromObjStruct): minor cast
  258 	changes.
  259 
  260 2000-11-01  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  261 
  262 	* unix/tcl.m4: removed use of -lbsd and -ldl for AIX-5.
  263 
  264 	* tests/subst.test: added tests for non-zero return code handling by
  265 	subst.
  266 	* generic/tclParse.c (Tcl_EvalEx): corrected handling of non-zero,
  267 	non-error return code cases for subst. [Bug 119829]
  268 
  269 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclVarTraceExists): Corrected excessive mem use
  270 	when info exists was called on a non-existent array element. [Bug
  271 	119213, 119336]
  272 
  273 2000-10-30  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  274 
  275 	* win/configure.in:
  276 	* win/Makefile.in:
  277 	* win/makefile.vc:
  278 	* win/tcl.rc:
  279 	* win/tclsh.rc: Added logic to derive filenames better in the resource
  280 	scripts based on compile options.
  281 
  282 2000-10-30  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  283 
  284 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c: added default encoding map from "ja_JP.eucJP" to
  285 	"euc-jp". (takahashi)
  286 
  287 	* tests/clock.test: corrected clock-2.* test numbering
  288 
  289 	* unix/configure.in (SC_TCL_LINK_LIBS): removed code that was
  290 	commented out (it had been moved to tcl.m4's SC_TCL_LINK_LIBS
  291 	already).
  292 
  293 	* unix/tcl.m4: consolidated gettimeofday check for AIX.
  294 
  295 2000-10-27  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  296 
  297 	* unix/configure.in:
  298 	* unix/tcl.m4: added support for AIX-5.
  299 
  300 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_NotifyChannel): removed #ifdef around code for
  301 	old channel structures, placed preserve/release around statePtr
  302 	* generic/tclIO.c (CloseChannel): the statePtr for a channel was not
  303 	being freed when the last channel in a stack was freed, causing a mem
  304 	leak.
  305 
  306 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c: updated channel types to strict
  307 	TCL_CHANNEL_VERSION_2 style to avoid compiler warnings. They work
  308 	either way, but this avoids compiler warnings (that worries people).
  309 
  310 2000-10-27  Jennifer Hom  <jenn@ajubasolutions.com>
  311 
  312 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl: Removed a cd into the test directory
  313 	in runAllTests that screwed up the temporary directory setting,
  314 	effectively preventing users from running tests on multiple platforms
  315 	at the same time.
  316 
  317 2000-10-26  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  318 
  319 	* win/tclWinFile.c (TclpMatchFilesTypes): NULL was being set to "attr"
  320 	which was a DWORD. Changed NULL to zero because a 'void *' can't be
  321 	set to a DWORD to avoid the compiler warning.
  322 
  323 2000-10-24  Jennifer Hom  <jenn@ajubasolutions.com>
  324 
  325 	* tests/all.tcl: Removed support for tcltest 1.0.
  326 
  327 	* tests/tcltest.test:
  328 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl:
  329 	* library/tcltest1.0/pkgIndex.tcl:
  330 	* docs/tcltest.n: Moved tcltest2 code so that it's the standard
  331 	version of tcltest. Removed all tcltest2 files (tests/tcltest2.test,
  332 	library/tcltest1.0/tcltest2.tcl, docs/tcltest2.n).
  333 
  334 2000-10-20  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  335 
  336 	* win/tclWinFile.c (TclpMatchFilesTypes): made the stat call only
  337 	occur when necessary (for 'glob' command). Significantly speeds up
  338 	glob command from 8.3. [BUG: 6216]
  339 
  340 2000-10-19  Jennifer Hom  <jenn@ajubasolutions.com>
  341 
  342 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest2.tcl:
  343 	* tests/tcltest2
  344 	* doc/tcltest2.n: Code and documentation cleanup. Modified -verbose to
  345 	take list of keywords as well as string of letters. Removed Tcl
  346 	version information from tcltest. Removed tcltest::grep from tcltest
  347 	package. Added optional 3rd directory argument to
  348 	makeFile/makeDirectory and removeFile/removeDirectory.
  349 
  350 	* tests/basic.test: Changed references to tcltest::tclVersion to
  351 	hardcoded numbers.
  352 	* generic/tcl.h: Changed reference to tcltest2.tcl and tcltest.tcl in
  353 	comments to tests/basic.test.
  354 
  355 2000-10-06  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  356 
  357 	* win/tclWinChan.c: moved Win2K bug case test with GetStdHandle() from
  358 	TclpGetDefaultStdChannel into Tcl_MakeFileChannel to enable a more
  359 	general method in detecting invalid OS handles rather than just a
  360 	specific known case. [BUG: 5971]
  361 
  362 2000-10-06  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  363 
  364 	* tests/cmdAH.test: extra tests for 'file channels' that include
  365 	multiple interpreter tests and channel sharing
  366 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_GetChannelNamesEx): corrected function (and
  367 	consequently 'file channels') to return channels that are actually
  368 	registered for this specific interp, rather than this thread.
  369 
  370 	* doc/CrtChannel.3: fixed spelling mistakes
  371 
  372 2000-09-29  Jennifer Hom  <jenn@ajubasolutions.com>
  373 
  374 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest2.tcl:
  375 	* tests/tcltest2.test:
  376 	* doc/tcltest2.n: Modified the new form of the test command to accept
  377 	both attribute-value pairs and command line options. Updated the tests
  378 	and the documentation for this new format. Also changed the option
  379 	names for the test command.
  380 
  381 2000-09-29  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  382 
  383 	* win/tclWinSerial.c (SerialGetOptionProc): corrected reporting of
  384 	space parity on Windows (Eason) [Bug 6057].
  385 
  386 	* win/Makefile.in: commented use of TESTFLAGS
  387 	* unix/Makefile.in: added TESTFLAGS to test target to conform with
  388 	Windows makefile and TEA style.
  389 
  390 	* tests/stack.test: prevented possible crash on systems with low
  391 	default stacksize (Tru64, AIX) in infinite recursion test. A solution
  392 	to check remaining stack space in the core is best, but hard to do in
  393 	a cross-platform manner.
  394 
  395 	* generic/tclIOGT.c (FLUSH_DELAY): renamed DELAY define to FLUSH_DELAY
  396 	to avoid defn conflict using Tru64's cc.
  397 
  398 2000-09-28  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>

  400 	* tools/tcl.wse.in: added tclPlatDecls.h and tkPlatDecls.h to the
  401 	Windows .exe install.
  402 
  403 	* tests/fCmd.test (fCmd-6.20): corrected test to remove c:/tcl8975@
  404 	after creating it.
  405 
  406 	* tests/fileName.test: cleaned up the testing of glob patterns for
  407 	c:/globTest (Windows) to directly create/remove directory.
  408 
  409 2000-09-27  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@ajubasolutions.com>
  410 
  411 	* generic/tcl.decls:
  412 	* generic/tclIO.c: updated Tcl_IsChannelShared,
  413 	Tcl_IsChannelRegistered, Tcl_CutChannel, Tcl_SpliceChannel,
  414 	Tcl_IsChannelExisting, and Tcl_ClearChannelHandlers to conform to the
  415 	new stacked channel implementation. Their stub slots were also moved
  416 	to give preference to the new 8.3.2 stub functions. This will cause an
  417 	incompatibility with 8.4a1 only.
  418 	(StopCopy): fixed a bug introduced by a partial fix in 8.3.2 that
  419 	didn't set nonBlocking correctly when resetting the flags for the
  420 	write side. [Bug: 6261]

  444 	base. Most of these changes relate to the rewrite of the stacked
  445 	channel implementation, with a few config related fixes.
  446 
  447 	Following is an asynchronous include of the applicable ChangeLog
  448 	entries from 8.3.2.

  454 2000-08-07  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  455 
  456 	* doc/ChnlStack.3:
  457 	* doc/CrtChannel.3: updated the docs to be aware of the
  458 	TCL_CHANNEL_VERSION_2 style of Tcl channels.
  459 
  460 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_CreateChannel): added assertion to verify that
  461 	the new channel versioning will be binary compatible with older
  462 	channel drivers.
  463 
  464 2000-08-05  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  465 
  466 	* generic/tclIOGT.c (TclChannelTransform): fixed segfault that would
  467 	occur when transforming a channel with a proc that did not yet exist.
  468 	(Kupries)
  469 
  470 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestChannelCmd): added some lint init'ing of
  471 	statePtr and chan vars.
  472 
  473 2000-07-26  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  474 
  475 	Merged core-8-3-1-io-rewrite back into core-8-3-1-branch. The
  476 	core-8-3-1-io-rewrite branch should now be considered defunct.
  477 
  478 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  479 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
  480 	* generic/tcl.decls:
  481 	* generic/tcl.h:
  482 	* generic/tclIO.c: moved the Tcl_Channel* macros from tcl.h to tclIO.c
  483 	and made them proper stubbed functions. These are: Tcl_ChannelName,
  484 	Tcl_ChannelVersion, Tcl_ChannelBlockModeProc, Tcl_ChannelCloseProc,
  485 	Tcl_ChannelClose2Proc, Tcl_ChannelInputProc, Tcl_ChannelOutputProc,
  486 	Tcl_ChannelSeekProc, Tcl_ChannelSetOptionProc,
  487 	Tcl_ChannelGetOptionProc, Tcl_ChannelWatchProc,
  488 	Tcl_ChannelGetHandleProc, Tcl_ChannelFlushProc, and
  489 	Tcl_ChannelHandlerProc. These should be used to access the
  490 	Tcl_ChannelType structure instead of direct pointer dereferencing.
  491 
  492 	* tests/iogt.test: added RCS string, marked tests 2.* to be unixOnly
  493 	due to underlying system differences.
  494 
  495 2000-07-25 Andreas Kupries <a.kupries@westend.com>
  496 
  497 	* tests/iogt.test: (line 866f) New tests iogt-6.[01], highlighting
  498 	buffering trouble when stacking and unstacking transformations.
  499 	iogt-6.0 is solved, see the changes below. iogt-6.1 remains, for now,
  500 	due to the perceived complexity of solutions.
  501 
  502 	* generic/tclIO.h: (line 139f) struct Channel, added a buffer queue,
  503 	to hold data pushed back when stacking a transformation.
  504 
  505 	* generic/tclIO.c:
  506 	(line 91f, line 7434f) New internal function 'CopyBuffer'.  Derived
  507 	from 'CopyAndTranslateBuffer', with translation removed.
  508 	(line 1025f, line 1212f): Initialization of new queue.
  509 	(line 1164f, Tcl_StackChannel): Pushback of input queue.
  510 	(line 1293f, Tcl_UnstackChannel): Discard input and pushback.
  511 	(line 3748f, Tcl_ReadRaw): Modified to use data in the push back area
  512 	before going to the driver. Uses 'CopyBuffer', s.a.
  513 	(line 4702f, GetInput): Modified to use data in the push back area
  514 	before going to the driver.
  515  	(line 4867f, Tcl_Seek): Modified to take pushback of the topmost
  516 	channel in a stack into account.
  517 	(line 5620f, Tcl_InputBuffered): See above. Added
  518 	'Tcl_ChannelBuffered'. Analog to 'Tcl_InputBuffered' but for the
  519 	buffer area in the channel.
  520 
  521 	* generic/tcl.decls: New public API 'Tcl_ChannelBuffered'. S.a.
  522 
  523 2000-07-17  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  524 
  525 	* unix/Makefile.in:
  526 	* win/Makefile.in:
  527 	* win/makefile.vc: added tclIOGT.c to objects list to compile.
  528 
  529 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  530 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
  531 	* generic/tclInt.decls: commented out internal decls for
  532 	TclTestChannelCmd and TclTestChannelEventCmd as they were moved to
  533 	tclTest.c. Added new decls for TclChannelEventScriptInvoker and
  534 	TclChannelTransform.
  535 
  536 	* generic/tclIO.c (CloseChannel): stopped masking out of the
  537 	TCL_READABLE|TCL_WRITABLE bits from the state flags in CloseChannel,
  538 	instead adding extra intelligence to CheckChannelErrors with a new
  539 	CHANNEL_RAW_MODE bit for special behavior when called from Raw channel
  540 	APIs.
  541 
  542 2000-07-13  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  543 
  544 	* generic/tclIO.c (StackSetBlockMode): moved set of chanPtr outside of
  545 	blockModeProc check to avoid infinite loop when blockModeProc was
  546 	NULL. Updated TransformSeekProc to not call Tcl_Seek directly
  547 	(Kupries).
  548 
  549 	* win/tclWinChan.c: updated fileChannelType to v2 channel struct
  550 	* win/tclWinConsole.c: updated consoleChannelType to v2 channel struct
  551 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: updated pipeChannelType to v2 channel struct
  552 	* win/tclWinSerial.c: updated serialChannelType to v2 channel struct
  553 	* win/tclWinSock.c: updated tcpChannelType to v2 channel struct
  554 
  555 2000-07-11  Brent Welch	<welch@ajubasolutions.com>
  556 
  557 	* win/tclConfig.sh.in (TCL_LIBS): Cleaned up unix-specific autoconf
  558 	variables.
  559 
  560 2000-07-11  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  561 
  562 	* tests/iogt.test: made tests [345].0 not run by default as they were
  563 	failing in the new design, but I'm not convinced that the returned
  564 	result isn't correct.
  565 
  566 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
  567 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  568 	* generic/tcl.decls: added Tcl_GetTopChannel C API that returns the
  569 	current top channel of a channel stack. Tcl_GetChannel was changed
  570 	earlier to return the bottommost channel of a stack because that is
  571 	the one that is guaranteed to stay around the longest, and this was
  572 	needed to compensate for certain operations that want to look at the
  573 	state of the main channel. Most channel APIs already compensate for
  574 	grabbing the top, so it shouldn't be needed often.
  575 
  576 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_StackChannel, Tcl_UnstackChannel): Added
  577 	flushing of buffers (Kupries), removed use of DownChannel macro, added
  578 	Tcl_GetTopChannel public API to get to the top channel of the channel
  579 	stack (necessary for TLS). Rewrote Tcl_NotifyChannel for new channel
  580 	design (Kupries). Did some code cleanup in the transform code.
  581 	tclIO.c must still be broken into bits (separate out test code and
  582 	giot code, create tclIO.h).
  583 
  584 2000-07-10  Andreas Kupries <a.kupries@westend.com>
  585 
  586 	* tests/iogt.test: Reverted some earlier changes as a fix by Jeff
  587 	revived the original and correct behaviour. IOW, the tests showed a
  588 	genuine error and I didn't see it :(.
  589 
  590 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_Read|Write_Raw): Changed to directly use the
  591 	drivers and not DoRead|DoWrite. The latter use the buffering system,
  592 	encoding and eol-translation and this wreaks havoc with the data going
  593 	through the transformations. Both procedures use CheckForchannelErrors
  594 	and let it believe that there is no background copy in progress or
  595 	else stacked channels could not be used for that.
  596 
  597 	* generic/tclIO.c (TclCopyChannel, CopyData): Moved access to the
  598 	topmost channel from the first to the second procedure to make the
  599 	decision about that at the last possible time (Callbacks can change
  600 	the stacking).
  601 
  602 	test suite: failures of iogt-[345].0
  603 
  604 2000-07-06  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  605 
  606 	* tests/iogt.test: new tests for stacked channel stuff based off new
  607 	'testchannel transform|unstack' code (Kupries IOGT extension).
  608 	* generic/tcl.decls:
  609 	* generic/tcl.h:
  610 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
  611 	* generic/tclStubsInit.c:
  612 	* generic/tclIO.c: complete rewrite of Tcl Channel code for stacked
  613 	channels. Channels are now designed to work in a more stacked fashion
  614 	with a shared ChannelState data structure.
  615 
  616 2000-06-02  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  617 
  618 	* generic/tclIO.c (CloseChannel): removed the &ing out of
  619 	(TCL_READABLE|TCL_WRITABLE) from the flags, as CloseChannel does this
  620 	on the next pass through for the top channel, and it appeared to be
  621 	causing hangs by not allowing the final flush.
  622 
  623 2000-06-01  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  624 
  625 	* generic/tclIO.c (CloseChannel): Rewrote CloseChannel code to unstack
  626 	a channel during the close process. Fixed a refcount bug in
  627 	Tcl_UnstackChannel. [Bug: 5623]
  628 	(CloseChannel): further extended CloseChannel in the stacked case to
  629 	effect certain operations on the next channel that would have been
  630 	done in Tcl_Close.  Also added CHANNEL_CLOSED and removed
  631 	(TCL_READABLE|TCL_WRITABLE) bits from chanPtr->flags. Changed final
  632 	reset of the WatchProc to check the chanDownPtr's (next) interestMask.
  633

  637 
  638 2000-09-20  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  639 
  640 	* tests/socket.test: removed doTestsWithRemoteServer constraint from
  641 	socket-12.*. It requires 'exec', not a remote server. Cleaned up some
  642 	coding errors.
  643 
  644 2000-09-20  Jennifer Hom  <jenn@ajubasolutions.com>
  645 
  646 	* library/tcltest1.0/pkgIndex.tcl: Updated to load tcltest 2.0.
  647 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest2.tcl: New version of tcltest.
  648 	Cleanup of command line parsing: allows users to specify command line
  649 	arguments through an environment variable named TCLTEST_OPTIONS [RFE:
  650 	3748], does not respond to incorrect arguments, and forces usage of
  651 	entire flag name when using command line arguments. Defines accessor
  652 	procs for all tcltest variables. Allows users to use 'return' in test
  653 	scripts. Allow users to specify whether test files should be sourced
  654 	or run in a separate process. 'all.tcl' code moved to tcltest package.
  655 	'test' proc modified to use attribute-value pairs. Allow users to
  656 	specify what return codes, output, and errors can be compared and
  657 	whether these values should be compared using regexp, glob, or exact
  658 	matching. makeDirectory & removeDirectory now operate with respect to
  659 	temporaryDirectory [Bug: 6001]. Test results from tests run in slave
  660 	interpreters are now included in test totals [Bug: 1493]. Test files
  661 	that return error values are now reported.
  662 	* tests/all.tcl: Added code to check for the tcltest version loaded;
  663 	modified to figure out which tests to run based on the tcltest version
  664 	loaded.
  665 	* tests/tcltest.test: Modified to explicitly load version 1.0 of
  666 	tcltest.
  667 	* tests/tcltest2.test: New test suite for tcltest; includes all of the
  668 	old tests plus new ones reflecting changes made for version 2.0.
  669 	* tests/cmdAH.test: Added singleTestInterp constraint to cmdAH-31.2;
  670 	this test does not run if tests aren't sourced into a single
  671 	interpreter.
  672 	* tests/socket.test: Fixed two tests that were referencing variables
  673 	outside of scope.
  674 
  675 	* tools/tcl.wse.in: Added code to install tcltest2.tcl.
  676 
  677 	* doc/tcltest2.n: New documentation for tcltest version 2.0. Removes
  678 	documentation for tcltest namespace variables. Adds documentation for
  679 	new tcltest procs.
  680 
  681 	* unix/mkLinks: Added code to link to tcltest2.n.
  682 
  683 	* generic/tcl.h: Added comment to modify tcltest2.tcl as well as
  684 	tcltest.tcl for version changes.
  685 
  686 2000-09-19  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  687 
  688 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_RegexpObjCmd): When using -all, all attempts
  689 	after the first to match the regexp against the string should include
  690 	the TCL_REG_NOTBOL flag, to avoid erroneously matching ^ in the middle
  691 	of the string. Added code to set this flag after the first pass
  692 	through the matching loop. [Bug: 6284].
  693 
  694 2000-09-19  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  695 
  696 	* doc/Eval.3: Added a note about the script argument to Tcl_Eval()
  697 	should be in UTF-8 or risk implied conversion errors when possible
  698 	combinations of upper ascii can be valid UTF-8 special codes.
  699 
  700 2000-09-17  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  701 
  702 	* tests/cmdIL.test: Added a test for fix for [Bug: 6212].
  703 
  704 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LsortObjCmd): Applied patch from [Bug:
  705 	6212], which corrected an error in the handling of the -index option.
  706 
  707 2000-09-14  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  708 
  709 	* doc/Alloc.3: Added entries for Tcl_AttemptAlloc, Tcl_AttempRealloc.
  710 
  711 	* doc/StringObj.3: Added entry for Tcl_AttemptSetObjLength.
  712 
  713 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
  714 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: Regen'ed stubs files from new tcl.decls.
  715 
  716 	* generic/tcl.decls: Added stubs for the Tcl_Attempt* memory
  717 	allocators and for Tcl_AttemptSetObjLength.
  718 
  719 	* generic/tcl.h: Added #define's for attemptckalloc, attemptckrealloc,
  720 	which map to the Tcl_Attempt* memory allocators.
  721 
  722 	* generic/tclCkalloc.c: Added non-panic'ing versions of Tcl_Alloc,
  723 	Tcl_Realloc, etc.; these are called Tcl_AttemptAlloc,
  724 	Tcl_AttemptRealloc, etc. These are used by Tcl_AttemptSetObjLength and
  725 	the string obj append functions.
  726 
  727 	* generic/tclStringObj.c: Modified string growth algorithm to use
  728 	doubling algorithm as long as possible, and only fall back when that
  729 	fails. Added Tcl_AttemptSetObjLength, and modified
  730 	AppendUnicodeToUnicodeRep, AppendUtfToUtfRep, and
  731 	Tcl_AppendStringsToObjVA to support this.
  732 
  733 2000-09-07  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  734 
  735 	* win/.cvsignore: changed the glob patterns a bit to exclude VC++
  736 	project conversion backups.
  737 
  738 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: Stage-1 bug fix for TR#2460 "exec leaks memory".
  739 	Added more logic around the close-down of the pipe reader thread so as
  740 	to avoid, at all cost, a TerminateThread. Most cases with exec are
  741 	fixed, but I don't consider 2460 done yet. Closing down the read side
  742 	of a pipe before the child process, doesn't really fit the windows
  743 	model. [BUG: 2460]
  744 
  745 2000-09-07  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  746 
  747 	* doc/trace.n: minor doc cleanup
  748 
  749 2000-09-06  André Pönitz <poenitz@htwm.de>
  750 
  751 	* doc/*.n: added or changed "SEE ALSO:" section
  752 
  753 2000-09-06  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  754 
  755 	* win/tclWinLoad.c (TclpLoadFile): added special message for
  756 	ERROR_PROC_NOT_FOUND exception in loading a dll.
  757 	* win/tclWinError.c: changed ERROR_PROC_NOT_FOUND to map from ESRCH
  758 	(POSIX: no such process) to EINVAL because there is no good mapping
  759 	for "procedure not found".
  760 
  761 	* README:
  762 	* generic/tcl.h:
  763 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl:
  764 	* tools/tcl.wse.in:
  765 	* tools/tcltk-man2html.tcl:
  766 	* unix/configure.in:
  767 	* unix/tcl.spec:
  768 	* win/README.binary:
  769 	* win/configure.in: updated patchlevel to 8.4a2
  770 
  771 	* unix/tclUnixPipe.c (TclpCreateProcess): Removed WNOHANG from
  772 	Tcl_WaitPid call in error case of process creation on Unix, as it
  773 	would lead to defunct processes. [Bug: 6148]
  774 
  775 	* tests/string.test: extended string repeat tests
  776 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): changed STR_REPEAT to
  777 	preallocate the full space of the final string, avoided repeated
  778 	appends.
  779 
  780 	* doc/source.n:
  781 	* doc/Eval.3: added extra note about how to safe use ^Z in code, as it
  782 	is now a cross-platform (was just Windows) EOF char.
  783 
  784 2000-09-05  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
  785 
  786 	* generic/tclHash.c: fixed pedantic warning of incorrectly placed
  787 	#endif
  788 
  789 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): INST_STR_INDEX fixed
  790 	pedantic cast warning.
  791 	Corrected support for building with -DTCL_COMPILE_STATS.
  792 	Added efficiency check of object equality.
  793 
  794 2000-08-29  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  795 
  796 	* generic/tclStringObj.c: Applied patch from Gerhard Hintermayer to
  797 	provide a more conservative string growth algorithm for strings larger
  798 	than one megabyte; this allows more efficient use of memory for very
  799 	large strings.
  800 
  801 2000-08-25  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  802 
  803 	* tests/trace.test: Extended array tracing tests.
  804 
  805 	* doc/trace.n: Clarified information about when array traces will be
  806 	fired.
  807 
  808 	* generic/tclVar.c (Tcl_ArrayObjCmd): Corrected call to CallTraces
  809 	(for TCL_TRACE_ARRAY) to only be called when the variable is either an
  810 	array or is undefined, to ensure that array traces do not fire for
  811 	scalar variables.
  812 
  813 2000-08-24  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  814

  827 
  828 2000-08-24  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  829 
  830 	Overall change: Added support for command rename/delete traces and new
  831 	trace syntax, from patch from Vince Darley. Added support for array
  832 	traces for variables. [RFE: 5048, 5967].
  833 
  834 	* doc/trace.n: Updated documentation for new syntax; flagged old
  835 	syntax as deprecated; added documentation for command rename/delete
  836 	traces and variable array traces.
  837 
  838 	* tests/trace.test: Updated tests for new trace syntax; new tests for
  839 	command rename/delete traces; new tests for array traces.
  840 
  841 	* generic/tclVar.c: Support for new trace syntax; support for
  842 	TCL_TRACE_ARRAY.
  843 
  844 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  845 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
  846 	* generic/tcl.decls: Stub functions for command rename/delete traces.

  850 	* generic/tclBasic.c: Support for command traces.
  851 
  852 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclTraceVariableObjCmd): Patched to support new
  853 	[trace] syntax:
  854 	trace {add|remove|list} {variable|command} name ops command
  855 	Added support for command traces (rename, delete operations).
  856 	Added support for TCL_TRACE_ARRAY at Tcl level (array operation for
  857 	variable traces).
  858 
  859 2000-08-20  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  860 
  861 	* generic/tclVar.c: Added check for non-arrays for [array statistics]
  862 	command (patch from Mark Patton).
  863 
  864 2000-08-19  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  865 
  866 	* generic/tclPlatDecls.h: without a previous '#include <windows.h>',
  867 	tclPlatDecls.h can't be parsed due to a missing definition of TCHAR.
  868 	Added a check to include it when not defined.
  869 
  870 	***POSSIBLE OBSCURE BUG*** could be caused when the compile flags for
  871 	the core happen to be different than a project who uses these publics
  872 	regarding -D_MBCS and -D_UNICODE. This added check might have to be
  873 	revisited later with a better understanding of the reprocusions. I
  874 	think TCHAR should be replaced with it's expansion.
  875 
  876 2000-08-18  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  877 
  878 	* win/.cvsignore (added): provides a cleaner build environment with

  895 	platform-specific stubs declarations (Tcl_WinTCharToUtf, etc)
  896 	[Bug: 5241].
  897 
  898 	* README: Updated link for instructions on compiling Tcl from sources
  899 	to point to correct location (http://dev.scriptics.com/doc/... instead
  900 	of http://dev.scriptics.com/support/...).
  901

  903 
  904 	* generic/tclEnv.c (TclUnsetEnv): Changed declaration of length
  905 	variable from "unsigned int" to "int", to match usage when passed to

  916 2000-08-10  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
  917 
  918 	* generic/tclObj.c: r1.15 accidentally changed a global mutex name

  922 
  923 	* tests/indexObj.test: Added tests using the [testwrongnumargs]
  924 	command to test Tcl_WrongNumArgs.
  925 
  926 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestWrongNumArgsObjCmd): Added test function for
  927 	the Tcl_WrongNumArgs function.
  928 
  929 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (Tcl_WrongNumArgs): Corrected algorithm to not
  930 	insert a space before the message component when objc == 0 [Bug: 6078]
  931 
  932 2000-07-27  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@redhat.com>
  933 
  934 	* win/configure.in: TCL_STUB_LIB_FLAG should not include ${TCL_DBGX}
  935 	in win/tclConfig.sh, fix that.
  936 
  937 2000-07-25  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>

  947 	* win/tclWinInit.c: Thread-safe rewrite for tclAsync.c. Added notifier
  948 	alerting on all platforms as it was only working on Win before.
  949 	Removed older Win hacks that would end-up waking the wrong notifier in
  950 	the presence of a threaded build. All tests pass as before. New test
  951 	cases will be added soon for the new behavior. [BUG: 5791]
  952 
  953 2000-07-25  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
  954 
  955 	* generic/tclVar.c (CallTraces): Added check for VAR_TRACE_ACTIVE on
  956 	the array containing the variable before executing traces on that
  957 	array, to conform with normal variable traces and the documentation,
  958 	which states that while executing a trace, other traces on that
  959 	variable are disabled. [Bug: 6049].
  960 
  961 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (BuildCommandLine): Added Tcl_DStringFree call to
  962 	prevent potential memory leaks [Bug: 6041].

 1002 
 1003 	* win/configure.in: Define ${prefix} and ${exec_prefix} like

 1031 	allow custom key types, such as Tcl_Obj *'s, and others.
 1032 
 1033 	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test: Added tests for pkg_compareExtension.
 1034 
 1035 	* library/package.tcl: Enhanced pkg_compareExtension to handle Unixes
 1036 	which tack the version number on to the end of library names (eg,
 1037 	foo.so.1.2); such filenames will be correctly matched. (Patch from
 1038 	Vince Darley).
 1039 
 1040 	* win/makefile.vc: Applied patch from Don Porter to provide better
 1041 	nmake support for NT/Alpha [RFE: 5938].

 1044 
 1045 	* unix/configure.in:
 1046 	* unix/tcl.m4:
 1047 	* win/tcl.m4: Properly quote arguments to m4 macros. This allows Tcl
 1048 	to work with the new version of autoconf.
 1049 
 1050 2000-07-18  Eric Melski  <ericm@ajubasolutions.com>
 1051 
 1052 	* tests/opt.test: Removed references to Lfirst, Lrest functions.
 1053 
 1054 	* library/opt0.4/optparse.tcl: Applied patch from Chris Nelson, which
 1055 	replaces the [Lfirst] function with an inline [lindex ... 0] and
 1056 	[Lrest] with [lrange ... 1 end], for better performance. [RFE: 6019]
 1057 
 1058 2000-07-18  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1059 
 1060 	* compat/string.h: Fixed function prototypes for strpbrk and strtok
 1061 	[Bug: 6020].
 1062 
 1063 2000-07-17  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@ajubasolutions.com>
 1064 
 1065 	* win/tclWinChan.c: Win2K OS bug with GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE)
 1066 	giving the wrong answer. This made TclpGetDefaultStdChannel grab what
 1067 	it thought was a valid native stdout handle. Added a new WriteFile()
 1068 	test to make sure it's really valid. This OS bug doesn't affect the
 1069 	shells. Only -subsystem:windows (aka WinMain) application that
 1070 	dynamically load tclXX.dll [BUG: 5971]
 1071

 1073 
 1074 	* library/msgcat1.0/msgcat.tcl:
 1075 	* doc/msgcat.n:
 1076 	* tests/msgcat.test: Applied patches from Chris Nelson, to provide the
 1077 	mcmset function, which allows the translator to set multiple string
 1078 	translations in a single function call, rather than requiring many
 1079 	calls to mcset. [RFE: 6000, 5993]. In addition, these patches correct
 1080 	mcload to use utf-8 encoding on when reading message catalog files,
 1081 	and provides for better default behavior for determining the locale on
 1082 	a Windows system.
 1083 
 1084 2000-07-17  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@redhat.com>
 1085

 1103 	* win/configure.in: Fix definition of TCL_SRC_DIR so that it matches
 1104 	the Unix version.
 1105 	* win/tclConfig.sh.in: Removed duplicate variables.
 1106 
 1107 2000-07-06  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1108 
 1109 	* tests/msgcat.test:
 1110 	* library/msgcat1.0/msgcat.tcl: Applied patch from Christian Krone, to
 1111 	provide extended args support for msgcat::unknown, which is used for
 1112 	strings without a known translation in the current locale [Bug: 5984].
 1113 
 1114 2000-06-29  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>

 1121 
 1122 2000-06-27  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1123 
 1124 	* tests/stringObj.test: Tweaked tests to avoid hardcoded high-ASCII

 1126 	syntax. [Bug: 3842].
 1127 
 1128 2000-06-26  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>

 1204 
 1205 	* tests/http.test
 1206 	* doc/http.n
 1207 	* library/http2.3/http.tcl: Fixed bug 5741, where unsuccessful geturl
 1208 	calls sometimes leaked memory and resources (sockets). Also, switched
 1209 	around some of the logic so that http::wait never throws an exception.
 1210 	This is because in an asynchronous geturl, the command callback will
 1211 	probably end up doing all the error handling anyway, and in an
 1212 	asynchronous situation, the user expects to check the state when the
 1213 	transaction completes, as opposed to being thrown an exception.	For
 1214 	the http package, this menas the user can check http::status for
 1215 	"error" and http::error for the error message after doing the
 1216 	http::wait.

 1220 	* tests/info.test:
 1221 	* doc/info.n:
 1222 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (Tcl_EvalFile):
 1223 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoScriptCmd): added ability to set the info
 1224 	script return value [info script ?newFileName?]. This will be
 1225 	beneficial for virtual file system programs. [Bug: 4225]
 1226 
 1227 2000-05-26  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1228 
 1229 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_RegsubObjCmd): reworked to operate in
 1230 	Unicode, tweaked for performance.
 1231 	(Tcl_StringObjCmd) changed STR_FIRST/STR_LAST error message to
 1232 	something more understandable, reworked STR_FIRST, STR_LAST, STR_MAP,
 1233 	STR_MATCH, STR_RANGE, STR_REPLACE to operate in Unicode. Removed
 1234 	inneffectual STR_RANGE "special" ByteArray support. Optimized STR_MAP
 1235 	algorithm, especially optimized for one-pair case. Fixed possible mem
 1236 	overrun in STR_INDEX bytearray case.
 1237 
 1238 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c: changed INST_STREQ -> INST_STR_EQ,
 1239 	INST_STRNEQ -> INST_STR_NEQ
 1240 	* generic/tclCompile.c: added streq, strneq, strcmp, strlen &
 1241 	strmatch to the compiled stats instructionTable
 1242 	* generic/tclCompile.h: added instructions INST_STR_CMP,
 1243 	INST_STR_INDEX, INST_STR_MATCH
 1244 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c: added byte compiler support for [string
 1245 	compare|match|index].
 1246 	* generic/tclExecute.c: Changed INST_STR_(N)EQ to return an Int object
 1247 	and not bother trying to reuse the top stack object. Added
 1248 	INST_STR_CMP, INST_STR_INDEX, INST_STR_MATCH bytecode ops. Extended
 1249 	evalstats output info with Tcl_IsShared stat info.
 1250 
 1251 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1252 	* generic/tclObj.c (Tcl_DbIsShared): added support for checking result
 1253 	of Tcl_IsShared in evalstats (TCL_COMPILE_STATS).
 1254 
 1255 	* generic/tclStringObj.c (Tcl_AppendUnicodeToObj): removed dead code.
 1256 	(AppendUnicodeToUnicodeRep) removed overallocation by extra
 1257 	sizeof(Tcl_UniChar) multiplier.
 1258 
 1259 	* tests/string.test: added string map tests for the one-pair case,
 1260 	corrected tests to reflect improved error messages in first/last.
 1261 	Added tests against mem overrun in string index bytearray case.
 1262 
 1263 2000-05-23  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1264 
 1265 	* generic/tclInt.h: Added function prototypes for TclCompileStringCmd
 1266 	and TclCompileReturnCmd.
 1267 
 1268 	* generic/tclCompile.h: Added definition of INST_STRLEN opcode and
 1269 	updated LAST_INST_OPCODE value.
 1270 
 1271 	* generic/tclBasic.c: Added information about TclCompileStringCmd and
 1272 	TclCompileReturnCmd to BuiltInCmds table.
 1273 
 1274 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Added support for the
 1275 	INST_STRLEN opcode.
 1276 
 1277 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileStringCmd): Basic implementation of
 1278 	byte-compiled [string] command. Not all subcommands are implemented;
 1279 	those that are not an out-line compiled.
 1280 
 1281 	(TclCompileReturnCmd): Byte-compiled implementation of [return]
 1282 	command. Only "simple" returns are byte-compiled; in particular, if
 1283 	the -code, -errorinfo or -errorcode flags are used, the command is not
 1284 	byte-compiled.
 1285 
 1286 2000-05-22  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1287 
 1288 	* doc/scan.n:

 1295 
 1296 2000-05-19  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1297 
 1298 	* generic/tclTest.c:
 1299 	* generic/tclIO.c: moved channel test commands from tclIO.c to
 1300 	tclTest.c.
 1301 	* generic/tclIO.h: new file, split out from tclIO.c to allow test
 1302 	commands to be moved to tclTest.c.
 1303 
 1304 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 1305 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 1306 	* generic/tclInt.decls: removed TclTestChannel*Cmd from internal stubs
 1307 	table and added TclChannelEventScriptInvoker to the internal stubs
 1308 	table so it can be used from the test code.
 1309 
 1310 2000-05-18  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1311 
 1312 	* tests/clock.test: Added test for "2 days 2 hours ago" style
 1313 	specifications.
 1314 
 1315 	* generic/tclDate.c: Regenerated from tclGetDate.y.
 1316 
 1317 	* generic/tclGetDate.y: Tweaked grammar to properly handle the "ago"
 1318 	keyword when it follows multiple relative unit specifiers, as in "2
 1319 	days 2 hours ago". [Bug: 5497]
 1320 
 1321 2000-05-18  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1322 
 1323 	* win/{tcl.m4,Makefile.in,configure.in}: added support for mingw
 1324 	compile env and cross-compiling. [Bug: 5499]
 1325 
 1326 	* generic/tclClock.c (FormatClock): correct code to handle locale
 1327 	specific return values from strftime, if any. [Bug: 3345]
 1328 
 1329 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpSetInitialEncodings): attempt to correct
 1330 	setlocale calls for XIM support and locale issues. [BUG: 5422 3345
 1331 	4236 2522 2521]
 1332 
 1333 2000-05-17  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1334 
 1335 	* library/init.tcl (auto_import): added check to see if a valid
 1336 	pattern was coming in, to avoid simple error cases [Bug: 3326]
 1337 
 1338 	* doc/regsub.n: correct regsub docs [Bug: 5346]
 1339 
 1340 2000-05-15  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1341 
 1342 	* library/history.tcl: Corrected an off-by-one error in HistIndex,
 1343 	which was causing [history redo] to start its search at the wrong
 1344 	event index. [Bug: 1269].
 1345 
 1346 2000-05-10  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1347 
 1348 	* generic/tclPosixStr.c (Tcl_SignalMsg): clarified #defines for Linux
 1349 	on Sparc to compile correctly. [Bug: 5364]
 1350 
 1351 	* doc/namespace.n:
 1352 	* tests/namespace.test:
 1353 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_NamespaceObjCmd): added 'namespace exists'
 1354 	command. [Bug: 4665]
 1355 
 1356 	* doc/source.n:
 1357 	* doc/Eval.3:
 1358 	* tests/source.test:
 1359 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (Tcl_EvalFile): added explicit \32 (^Z) eofchar
 1360 	(affects Tcl_EvalFile in C, "source" in Tcl). This was implicit on
 1361 	Windows already, and is now cross-platform to allow for scripted
 1362 	documents.

 1366 
 1367 	* win/tclWinThrd.c (TclpInitLock, TclpMasterLock): Added missing
 1368 	initialization of joinLock.
 1369 
 1370 2000-05-09  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1371 
 1372 	* tests/lsearch.test:
 1373 	* doc/lsearch.n:
 1374 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LsearchObjCmd): Extended [lsearch] to
 1375 	support sorted list searching and typed list searching. [RFE: 4098].
 1376 
 1377 2000-05-08  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1378 
 1379 	* doc/expr.n:
 1380 	* tests/expr.test:
 1381 	* tests/expr-old.test: added tests for 'eq' and 'ne'
 1382 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 1383 	* generic/tclCompile.h: added INST_STREQ and INST_STRNEQ opcodes that
 1384 	do strict string comparisons.
 1385 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c: added 'eq' and 'ne' string comparison
 1386 	operators.
 1387 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c (GetLexeme): added 'eq' and 'ne' expr parse
 1388 	terms (string (in)equality check).
 1389 
 1390 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LinsertObjCmd): made use of
 1391 	Tcl_DuplicateObj where code was otherwise duplicated. Made special
 1392 	case of inserting one element at the end work again (where index ==
 1393 	len).
 1394 	(Tcl_LreplaceObjCmd): moved Tcl_DuplicateObj call lower and cleaned
 1395 	up use of other arguments.
 1396 
 1397 	* generic/tclObj.c (Tcl_DuplicateObj): simplified code to call
 1398 	TclInitStringRep, which the code was just duplicating in part.
 1399 
 1400 	* doc/Utf.3:
 1401 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 1402 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 1403 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
 1404 	* generic/tclUtf.c: Added new functions Tcl_UniCharNcasecmp and
 1405 	Tcl_UniCharCaseMatch (unicode parallel to Tcl_StringCaseMatch)
 1406 	* generic/tclUtil.c: rewrote Tcl_StringCaseMatch algorithm for
 1407 	optimization and made Tcl_StringMatch just call Tcl_StringCaseMatch
 1408 	* tests/string.test: extended string match tests
 1409 
 1410 2000-05-08  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>

 1451 
 1452 2000-05-02  Andreas Kupries <a.kupries@westend.com>
 1453 
 1454 	Overall changes:
 1455 	  (1) Implementation of joinable threads for all platforms.
 1456 	  (2) Additional API's for channels. Required to allow the thread
 1457 	      extension to move channels between threads.
 1458 
 1459 	* generic/tcl.decls (lines 1360f): Added Tcl_JoinThread,
 1460 	Tcl_IsChannelShared, Tcl_IsChannelRegistered, Tcl_CutChannel,
 1461 	Tcl_SpliceChannel, Tcl_IsChannelExisting and Tcl_ClearChannelHandlers
 1462 	(slots 394 to 400).
 1463 
 1464 	* generic/tclIO.c: Implemented Tcl_IsChannelRegistered,
 1465 	Tcl_IsChannelShared, Tcl_CutChannel, Tcl_SpliceChannel,
 1466 	Tcl_IsChannelExisting and Tcl_ClearChannelHandlers.  Tcl_CutChannel
 1467 	uses code from CloseChannel. Replaced this code by a call to
 1468 	Tcl_CutChannel. Replaced several code fragments adding channels to
 1469 	the channel list with calls to Tcl_SpliceChannel. Removed now unused
 1470 	variables from CloseChannel and Tcl_UnstackChannel.
 1471 	Tcl_ClearChannelHandlers uses code from Tcl_Close. Replaced this code
 1472 	by a call to Tcl_ClearChannelHandlers. Removed now unused variables
 1473 	from Tcl_Close. Added the subcommands 'cut', 'forgetch', 'splice' and
 1474 	'isshared' to the test code (TclTestChannelCmd).
 1475 
 1476 	* unix/tclUnixThread.c: Implemented Tcl_JoinThread using the
 1477 	pthread-functionality.
 1478 
 1479 	* win/tclWinThrd.c: Fixed several small typos in comments.
 1480 	Implemented Tcl_JoinThread using a platform independent emulation
 1481 	layer (see generic/tclThreadJoin.c below). Added 'joinLock' to
 1482 	serialize Tcl_CreateThread and TclpExitThread to prevent a race for
 1483 	joinable threads.
 1484 
 1485 	* mac/tclMacThrd.c: Implemented Tcl_JoinThread using a platform
 1486 	independent emulation layer (see generic/tclThreadJoin.c below). Due
 1487 	to the cooperative nature of threading on this platform the race
 1488 	mentioned above is not present.
 1489 
 1490 	* generic/tclThreadJoin.c: New file. Contains a platform independent
 1491 	emulation layer helping in the implementation of joinable threads for
 1492 	the win and mac platforms.
 1493 
 1494 	* generic/tclInt.h: Added declarations for TclJoinThread,
 1495 	TclRememberJoinableThread and TclSignalExitThread. These procedures
 1496 	define the API of the emulation layer for joinable threads (see
 1497 	generic/tclThreadJoin.c above).
 1498 
 1499 	* win/Makefile.in:
 1500 	* win/makefile.vc: Added generic/tclTheadJoin.o to the rules.
 1501 
 1502 	* mac/: I don't know to which file generic/tclTheadJoin.o has to be
 1503 	added to so that it compiles. Sorry.
 1504 
 1505 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c: #ifdef'd the thread-local list of file channels
 1506 	as it prevents us from transfering channels. To restore this we may
 1507 	need an extended interface to drivers in the future. Target:
 1508 	9.0. Found while testing the new transfer of channels. The information
 1509 	in this list for a channel was left behind and then crashed the system
 1510 	during finalization.
 1511 
 1512 	* generic/tclThreadTest.c: Added -joinable flag to 'testthread
 1513 	create'. Added subcommand 'testthread join'.
 1514 
 1515 	* doc/CrtChannel.3: Added documentation for Tcl_IsChannelRegistered,
 1516 	Tcl_IsChannelShared, Tcl_CutChannel, Tcl_SpliceChannel,
 1517 	Tcl_IsChannelExisting and Tcl_ClearChannelHandlers.
 1518 
 1519 	* doc/Thread.3: Added documentation for Tcl_JoinThread.
 1520 
 1521 	* tests/thread.test: Added tests for joining of threads.
 1522 
 1523 2000-04-27  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1524 
 1525 	* doc/library.n: Added entries for auto_qualify and auto_import
 1526 	[Bug: 1271].
 1527 
 1528 	* doc/Init.3: Manual entry for Tcl_Init [Bug: 1820].
 1529 
 1530 	* doc/expr.n: Added documentation for each of the math library
 1531 	functions that expr supports [Bug: 1054].
 1532 
 1533 2000-04-26  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1534 
 1535 	* doc/memory.n: Man page for Tcl "memory" command, which is created
 1536 	when TCL_MEM_DEBUG is defined at compile time.
 1537 
 1538 	* doc/TCL_MEM_DEBUG.3: Man page with overall information about
 1539 	TCL_MEM_DEBUG usage.
 1540 
 1541 	* doc/DumpActiveMemory.3: Man page for Tcl_DumpActiveMemory,
 1542 	Tcl_InitMemory, and Tcl_ValidateAllMemory [Bug: 1816, 1835].
 1543 
 1544 	* generic/tclCkalloc.c: Fixed some function headers.
 1545 
 1546 	* unix/mkLinks: Regen'd with new mkLinks.tcl.
 1547 
 1548 	* unix/mkLinks.tcl: Fixed indentation, made link setup more
 1549 	intelligent (only do one existance test per man page, instead of one
 1550 	per function).
 1551 
 1552 	* doc/library.n: Fixed .SH NAME macro to include each function
 1553 	documented on the page, so that mkLinks will know about the functions
 1554 	listed there, and so that the Windows help file index will get set up
 1555 	correctly [Bug: 1898, 5273].

 1601 
 1602 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c (Tcl_FinalizeNotifier, NotifierThreadProc):
 1603 	added write of 'q' into triggerPipe for notifier in threaded case, so
 1604 	that Tcl doesn't hang when children are still running [Bug: 4139]
 1605 
 1606 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c (Tcl_MutexLock): minor comment fixes.
 1607 
 1608 2000-04-23  Jim Ingham  <jingham@cygnus.com>
 1609 
 1610 	These changes make some error handling marginally better for Mac
 1611 	sockets. It is still somewhat flakey, however.
 1612 
 1613 	* mac/tclMacSock.c (TcpClose): Add timeouts to the close - these don't
 1614 	seem to be honored, however. Use a separate PB for the release, since
 1615 	an async connect socket will still be using the original buffer. Make
 1616 	sure TCPRelease returns noErr before freeing the recvBuff. If the call
 1617 	returns an error, then the buffer is not right.
 1618 	* mac/tclMacSock.c (CreateSocket): Add timeouts to the async create.
 1619 	These don't seem to trigger, however. Sigh...
 1620 	* mac/tclMacSock.c (WaitForSocketEvent): If an TCP_ASYNC_CONNECT
 1621 	socket errors out, then return EWOULDBLOCK & error out.
 1622 	* mac/tclMacSock.c (NotifyRoutine): Added a NotifyRoutine for
 1623 	experimenting with MacTCP.
 1624 
 1625 2000-04-22  Jim Ingham <jingham@cygnus.com>
 1626 
 1627 	* library/package.tcl (tclPkgUnknown): Fixed a typo in the Mac package
 1628 	search part of tclPkgUnknown.
 1629 
 1630 2000-04-21  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 1631 
 1632 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Fixed a newly introduced bug where if
 1633 	there's a -command callback and something goes wrong, geturl threw an
 1634 	exception, called the callback, and unset the token. I changed it so
 1635 	that it will not call the callback when throwing an exception (so the
 1636 	caller only finds out about a given error from one place).  Also,
 1637 	fixed http::ncode so that it actually gives you back the http return
 1638 	code (i.e. 200, 404, etc.) instead of the first digit of the version
 1639 	of HTTP being used (i.e. 1).
 1640 
 1641 2000-04-21  Brent Welch <welch@scriptics.com>
 1642 
 1643 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: More thrashing with the "server closes
 1644 	without reading post data" scenario. Reverted to the previous filevent
 1645 	configuratiuon, which seems to work better with small amounts of post
 1646 	data.
 1647 
 1648 2000-04-20  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1649 
 1650 	* generic/tclAlloc.c: wrapped caddr_t define to not be done on Unix
 1651 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h: added Tclp*Alloc defines to allow the use of
 1652 	USE_TCLALLOC on Unix. [Bug: 4731]
 1653 
 1654 2000-04-19  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1655 
 1656 	* library/dde1.1/pkgIndex.tcl:
 1657 	* library/reg1.0/pkgIndex.tcl:
 1658 	* win/tclWinChan.c:
 1659 	* win/tclWinThrd.c: converted CRLF to LF the */tcl.hpj.in files were
 1660 	not converted, as it confuses hcw locally. [Bug: 5096]
 1661 
 1662 	* win/Makefile.in: expanded cleanup target for help files
 1663 
 1664 	* doc/Thread.3: minor macro cleanup
 1665 
 1666 	* generic/tclFileName.c (SplitUnixPath): added support for QNX node
 1667 	ids.
 1668

 1684 	* unix/Makefile.in: added install-strip target; bindir, libdir,
 1685 	mandir, includedir vars; tclLoadDyld.c target [Bug: 2527]
 1686 
 1687 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (CreateSocket): force a socket back into blocking
 1688 	mode (default state) after a -async connect succeeds. [Bug: 4388]
 1689 
 1690 	* generic/tclEvent.c (TclInitSubsystems): Moved tclLibraryPath to
 1691 	thread-local storage to prevent thread-related race condition.
 1692 	[Bug: 5033]
 1693 	* unix/tclAppInit.c (main): removed #ifdef TCL_TEST that sets the
 1694 	library path as it was unnecessary and conflicts with move of
 1695 	tclLibraryPath to thread-local storage.
 1696 
 1697 2000-04-18  Scott Redman  <redman@scriptics.com>

 1709 	and TCL_RETURN_THREAD_TYPE macros for declaring the NewThread callback
 1710 	proc.
 1711 
 1712 2000-04-14  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1713 
 1714 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (TtyParseMode): Only allow setting mark/space
 1715 	parity on platforms that support it [Bug: 5089]
 1716 
 1717 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_GetVersion): adjusted use of major/minor to

 1746 
 1747 	* doc/regexp.n: doc clarification [Bug: 5037]
 1748 	* doc/update.n: typo fix [Bug: 4996]
 1749 
 1750 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_ENABLE_THREADS): enhanced the detection of
 1751 	pthread_mutex_init [Bug: 4359] and (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS) added
 1752 	--enable-64bit-vis switch for Sparc VIS compilation [Bug: 4995]
 1753 
 1754 2000-04-12  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1755 
 1756 	* doc/dde.n: corrected dde poke docs. [Bug: 4991]
 1757 
 1758 2000-04-11  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1759 
 1760 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: Added "CONST" keyword to declaration of char
 1761 	*native in TclpCreateTempFile, to supress compiler warnings.
 1762 
 1763 2000-04-10  Brent Welch <welch@scriptics.com>
 1764 
 1765 	* generic/tcl.h: Fixed Tcl_CreateThread declaration.
 1766 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl: Fixed the "mainThread"
 1767 	initialization to work with either testthread or the thread extension
 1768 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c: Fixed compiler warning when compiling with
 1769 	-DTCL_THREADS
 1770 
 1771 2000-04-10  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1772 
 1773 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (TclpCreateTempFile): Added conversion of contents
 1774 	string from UTF to native encoding [Bug: 4030].
 1775 
 1776 	* tests/regexp.test: Added tests for infinite looping in [regexp
 1777 	-all].
 1778 
 1779 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c: Fixed infinite loop bug with [regexp -all]
 1780 	[Bug: 4981].
 1781 
 1782 	* tests/*.test: Changed all occurances of "namespace import
 1783 	::tcltest" to "namespace import -force ::tcltest" [Bug: 3948].
 1784 
 1785 2000-04-09  Brent Welch <welch@scriptics.com>
 1786 
 1787 	* lib/httpd2.1/http.tcl: Worked on the "server closes before reading
 1788 	post data" case, which unfortunately causes different error cases on
 1789 	Solaris, which can read the reply, and Linux and Windows, which cannot
 1790 	read anything. This is all in the loop-back case - client and server
 1791 	on the same host. Also unified the error handling so the "ioerror"
 1792 	status goes away and errors are reflected in a more uniform way.
 1793 	Updated the man page to document the behavior.
 1794 
 1795 2000-04-09  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1796 
 1797 	* tests/reg.test (matchexpected): corrected tests to use tcltest
 1798 	constraint types to skip certain tests.
 1799 
 1800 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_SetCommandInfo): comment fix
 1801 
 1802 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c (Tcl_CreateThread): moved TCL_THREADS ifdef
 1803 	inside of func as it is declared for non-threads builds as well. In
 1804 	the non-threads case, it always returns TCL_ERROR (couldn't create
 1805 	thread).
 1806 
 1807 2000-04-08  Andreas Kupries <a.kupries@westend.com>
 1808 
 1809 	* Overall change: Definition of a public API for the creation of
 1810 	new threads.
 1811 
 1812 	* generic/tclInt.h (line 1802f): Removed the definition of
 1813 	'TclpThreadCreate'. (line 793f) Removed the definition of
 1814 	'Tcl_ThreadCreateProc'.
 1815 
 1816 	* generic/tcl.h (line 388f): Readded the definition of
 1817 	'Tcl_ThreadCreateProc'. Added Win32 stuff send in by David Graveraux
 1818 	<davygrvy@bigfoot.com> to that too (__stdcall, ...). Added macros for
 1819 	the default stacksize and allowed flags.
 1820 
 1821 	* generic/tcl.decls (line 1356f): Added definition of
 1822 	'Tcl_CreateThread', slot 393 of the stub table. Two new arguments in
 1823 	the public API, for stacksize and flags.
 1824 
 1825 	* win/tclWinThrd.c:
 1826 	* mac/tclMacThrd.c: Renamed TclpThreadCreate to Tcl_CreateThread,
 1827 	added handling of the stacksize. Flags are currently ignored.
 1828 
 1829 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c: See above, but handles joinable flag. Ignores
 1830 	the specified stacksize if the macro HAVE_PTHREAD_ATTR_SETSTACKSIZE is
 1831 	not defined.
 1832 
 1833 	* generic/tclThreadTest.c (line 363): See below.
 1834 
 1835 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c (line 210): Adapted to the changes above. Uses
 1836 	default stacksize and no flags now.
 1837 
 1838 	* unic/tcl.m4 (line 382f): Added a check for
 1839 	'pthread_attr_setstacksize' to detect platforms not implementing this
 1840 	feature of pthreads. If it is implemented, configure will define the
 1841 	macro HAVE_PTHREAD_ATTR_SETSTACKSIZE (See unix/tclUnixThrd.c too).
 1842 
 1843 	* doc/Thread.3: Added Tcl_CreateThread and its arguments to the list
 1844 	of described functions. Removed stuff about not providing a public
 1845 	C-API for thread-creation.
 1846 
 1847 2000-04-07  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1848 
 1849 	* doc/binary.n: clarified docs on sign extension in binary scan [Bug:
 1850 	3466]
 1851 
 1852 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl (initConstraints): removed win32s
 1853 	references (no longer supported)
 1854 
 1855 	* tests/fCmd.test: marked test 8.1 knownBug because it is dangerous on
 1856 	poorly configured systems [Bug: 3881] and added 8.2 to keep essence of
 1857 	8.1 tested.
 1858 
 1859 2000-04-05  Andreas Kupries <a.kupries@westend.com>
 1860 
 1861 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_UnstackChannel, line 1831): Forcing interest
 1862 	mask to the correct value after an unstack and re-initialization of
 1863 	the notifier via the watchProc. Without this the first fileevent after
 1864 	an unstack will come through and be processed, but no more. [Bug: ??].
 1865 
 1866 2000-03-04  Brent Welch  <welch@scriptics.com>
 1867 
 1868 	* {win,unix}/Makefile.in: added dependency of tclStubInit.c on
 1869 	tcl.decls and tclInt.decls
 1870 	* generic/tclThread.c: Tweak so this compiles w/out TCL_THREADS
 1871 	* generic/{tcl.decls,tclStubInit.c}:  Just touched the tcl.decls and
 1872 	regenerated the tclStubInit.c file
 1873 
 1874 2000-03-29  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 1875 
 1876 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: For the -querychannel option, fconfigure
 1877 	the socket to be binary so that we don't translate anything while
 1878 	reading the data. This is because we determine the content length of
 1879 	the data on the channel by using seek (to the end of the file) and
 1880 	tell on the file handle, and we need the content-length to match the
 1881 	amount of data actually sent, and translation can affect the number of
 1882 	bytes posted.
 1883 
 1884 2000-04-03  Andreas Kupries <a.kupries@westend.com>
 1885 
 1886 	* Overall change: Definition of public API's for the finalization of
 1887 	conditions and mutexes. [Bug: 4199].
 1888 
 1889 	* generic/tclInt.h: Removed definitions of TclFinalizeMutex and
 1890 	TclFinalizeCondition.
 1891 
 1892 	* generic/tcl.decls: Added declarations of Tcl_MutexFinalize and
 1893 	Tcl_ConditionFinalize.
 1894 
 1895 	* generic/tclThread.c: Renamed TclFinalizeMutex to Tcl_MutexFinalize.
 1896 	Renamed TclFinalizeCondition to Tcl_ConditionFinalize.
 1897 
 1898 	* generic/tclNotify.c: Changed usage of TclFinalizeMutex to
 1899 	Tcl_MutexFinalize.
 1900 
 1901 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c:
 1902 	* generic/tclThreadTest.c: Changed usages of TclFinalizeCondition to
 1903 	Tcl_ConditionFinalize.
 1904 
 1905 	* generic/tcl.h: Added empty macros for Tcl_MutexFinalize and
 1906 	Tcl_ConditionFinalize, to be used when the core is compiled without
 1907 	threads.
 1908 
 1909 	* doc/Thread.3:	Added description the new API's.
 1910 
 1911 2000-04-03  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1912 
 1913 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoVarsCmd): checked for non-NULL procPtr to
 1914 	prevent itcl info override crash [Bug: 4064]
 1915 
 1916 	* tests/foreach.test:
 1917 	* tests/namespace.test:
 1918 	* tests/var.test: Added lsorts to avoid random sorted return
 1919 	problems. [Bug: 2682]
 1920 
 1921 	* tests/fileName.test: fixed 14.1 test fragility [Bug: 1482]
 1922 
 1923 	* tools/man2help2.tcl: fixed winhelp cross-linking error [Bug: 4156]
 1924 	improved translation to winhelp [Bug: 3679]
 1925 
 1926 	* unix/Makefile.in (MAN_INSTALL_DIR): patch to accept --mandir
 1927 	correctly [Bug: 4085]
 1928 
 1929 	* unix/dltest/pkg[a-e].c: Cleaned up test packages [Bug: 2293]
 1930 
 1931 2000-04-03  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1932 
 1933 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c (SetGroupAttribute):
 1934 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c (SetOwnerAttribute): Added (uid_t) and (gid_t)
 1935 	casts to avoid compiler warnings.
 1936 
 1937 2000-03-31  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 1938 
 1939 	* generic/tclGet.c (Tcl_GetDouble): Added additional conditions to
 1940 	error test (previously only errno was checked, but the return value of
 1941 	strtod() should be checked as well). [Bug: 4118]
 1942 
 1943 	* tests/exec.test: Added test for proper conversion of UTF data when
 1944 	used with "<< $dataWithUTF" on exec's.
 1945 
 1946 	* unix/tclUnixPipe.c (TclpCreateTempFile): Added
 1947 	Tcl_UtfToExternalDString call, so that if there is UTF content in the
 1948 	string it will be properly converted to the system encoding before
 1949 	being written [Bug: 4030].
 1950 	(TclpCreateTempFile): Added a check on the return value of tmpnam;
 1951 	some systems (Linux, for example) will start to return NULL after
 1952 	tmpnam has been called TMP_MAX times; not checking for this can have
 1953 	bad results (overwriting temp files, core dumps, etc.)
 1954 
 1955 2000-03-30  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1956 
 1957 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_DeleteCommandFromToken): Added comments
 1958 	noting the need to pair ckalloc with ckfree. [Bug: 4262]
 1959 
 1960 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 1961 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h:
 1962 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 1963 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: removed TclWinSynchSpawn (vestige of Win32s
 1964 	support).
 1965 
 1966 	* win/tclWinReg.c: made use of TclWinGetPlatformId instead of getting
 1967 	info again
 1968 
 1969 	* win/tclWinPort.h:
 1970 	* win/Makefile.in:
 1971 	* win/configure.in:
 1972 	* win/tcl.m4: Added support for gcc/mingw on Windows [Bug: 4234]
 1973 
 1974 2000-03-29  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1975 
 1976 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCleanupByteCode): made ByteCode cleanup
 1977 	more aware of TCL_BYTECODE_PRECOMPILED flagged structs (gen'd by
 1978 	tbcload), to correctly clean them up.
 1979 
 1980 	* generic/tclClock.c (FormatClock): moved check for empty format
 1981 	earlier, commented 0 result return value
 1982 
 1983 2000-03-29  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 1984 
 1985 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Removed an unnecessary fileevent statement
 1986 	from the error processing part of the Write method. Also, fixed two
 1987 	potential memory leaks in wait and reset, in which the state array
 1988 	wasn't being unset before throwing an exception. Prior to this
 1989 	version, Brent checked in a fix to catch a fileevent statement that
 1990 	was sometimes causing a stack trace when geturl was called with
 1991 	-timeout. I believe Brent's fix is necessary because TLS closes bad
 1992 	sockets for secure connections, and the fileevent was trying to act on
 1993 	a socket that no longer existed.
 1994 
 1995 2000-03-27  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 1996 
 1997 	* tests/httpd: removed unnecessary 'puts stderr "Post Dispatch"'
 1998 
 1999 	* tests/namespace.test:
 2000 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_Export): added a uniq'ing test to the
 2001 	export list so only one instance of each export pattern would exist in
 2002 	the list.
 2003 
 2004 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): optimized case for the
 2005 	empty string in ==/!= comparisons
 2006 
 2007 2000-03-27  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2008 
 2009 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c: Added (off_t) type casts in lseek() call [Bug:
 2010 	4409].
 2011 
 2012 	* unix/tclLoadAout.c:
 2013 	* unix/tclUnixPipe.c: Added (off_t) type casts in lseek() calls [Bug:
 2014 	4410].
 2015 
 2016 2000-03-22  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 2017 
 2018 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Fixed a bug where string query data that
 2019 	was bigger than queryblocksize would get duplicate characters at block
 2020 	boundaries.
 2021 
 2022 2000-03-22  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 2023 
 2024 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Fixed bug 4463, where we were getting a
 2025 	stack trace if we tried to publish a project to a good host but a port
 2026 	where there was no server listening.  It turned out the problem was a
 2027 	stray fileevent that needed to be cleared.  Also, fixed a bug where
 2028 	http::code could stack trace if called on a bad token (one which
 2029 	didn't represent a successful geturl) by adding an http element to the
 2030 	state array in geturl.
 2031 
 2032 2000-03-21  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2033 
 2034 	* tests/clock.test: Modified some tests that were not robust with
 2035 	respect to the time zone in which they were run and were thus failing.
 2036 
 2037 	* doc/clock.n: Clarified meaning of -gmt with respect to -base when
 2038 	used with [clock scan] (-gmt does not affect the interpretation of
 2039 	-base).
 2040 
 2041 2000-03-19  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 2042 
 2043 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: geturl used to throw an exception when the
 2044 	connection failed; I accidentally returned a token with the error
 2045 	info, breaking backwards compatibility. I changed it back to throwing
 2046 	an exception, but unsetting the state array first (thus still
 2047 	eliminating the original memory leak problem).
 2048 
 2049 2000-03-19  Sandeep Tamhankar <sandeep@scriptics.com>
 2050 
 2051 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Added -querychannel option and altered
 2052 	some of Brent's modifications to allow asynchronous posts (via
 2053 	-command). Also modified -queryprogress so that it calls the query
 2054 	callback as <callback> <token> <total size> <current size> to be
 2055 	consistent with -progress. Added -queryblocksize option with default
 2056 	8192 bytes for post blocksize. Fixed a bunch of potential memory leaks
 2057 	for the case when geturl receives bad args or can't open a socket,
 2058 	etc. Overall, the package really rocks now.
 2059 
 2060 	* doc/http.n: Added -queryblocksize, -querychannel, and
 2061 	-queryprogress. Also, changed the description of -blocksize, which
 2062 	states that the -progress callback will be called for each block, to
 2063 	now qualify that with an "if -progress is specified".
 2064 
 2065 	* tests/http.test: Added a querychannel test for synchronous and
 2066 	asynchronous posts, altered the queryprogress test such that the
 2067 	callback conforms to the -progress format. Also, had to use the
 2068 	-queryblocksize option to do the post 16K at a time to match Brent's
 2069 	expected results (and to test that -queryblocksize works).
 2070 
 2071 2000-03-15  Brent Welch <welch@scriptics.com>
 2072 
 2073 	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Added -queryprogress callback to
 2074 	http::geturl and also changed it so that writing the post data is
 2075 	event driven if the queryprogress callback or a timeout is given.
 2076 	This allows a timeout to occur when writing lots of post data. The
 2077 	queryprogress callback is called after each block of query data is
 2078 	posted. It has the same signature as the -progress callback.
 2079 
 2080 2000-03-06  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2081 
 2082 	* library/package.tcl: Applied patch from Bug: 2570; rather than
 2083 	setting geometry of slave interp to 0x0 when Tk was loaded, it now
 2084 	does "wm withdraw .". Both remove the main window from the display,
 2085 	but the former caused some internal structures to get initialized to
 2086 	zero, which caused crashes with some extensions.
 2087 
 2088 2000-03-02  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2089 
 2090 	* library/package.tcl (tclPkgUnknown): extended to allow recognizes
 2091 	changes in the auto_path while sourcing in other pkgIndex.tcl files
 2092 
 2093 	* doc/FindExec.3: fixed doc for declaration of Tcl_FindExecutable
 2094 	[Bug: 4275]
 2095 
 2096 	* generic/tclFileName.c (Tcl_TranslateFileName): Applied patch from
 2097 	Newman to significantly speedup file split/join on Windows (replaces
 2098 	regexp with custom parser). [Bug: 2867]
 2099 
 2100 	* win/README.binary: change mailing lists from @consortium.org to
 2101 	@scriptics.com [Bug: 4173]
 2102 
 2103 2000-02-28  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2104 
 2105 	* tests/clock.test: Added test for ISO bases < 100000
 2106 
 2107 	* generic/tclDate.c: (generated on Solaris)
 2108 	* generic/tclGetDate.y: Changed condition for deciding if a number is
 2109 	an ISO 8601 base from number >= 100000 to numberOfDigits >= 6.
 2110 	Previously it would fail to recognize 000000 as an ISO base.
 2111 
 2112 2000-02-14  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2113 
 2114 	* unix/Makefile.in: Added rpm target to generate Tcl binary RPM.
 2115 
 2116 	* unix/tcl.spec: RPM specification file for a Tcl binary RPM for
 2117 	Linux.
 2118 
 2119 2000-02-10  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>

 2136 	AIX, added -export-dynamic to LDFLAGS for FreeBSD-3+ [Bug: 2998]
 2137 
 2138 	* win/tclWinLoad.c (TclpLoadFile): improved error message for load
 2139 	failures, could perhaps be even more intelligent.
 2140 
 2141 2000-02-09  Jim Ingham	 <jingham@cygnus.com>
 2142 
 2143 	* mac/tclMacSock.c: Don't panic when you get an error closing an async
 2144 	socket. This doesn't seem to hurt anything, and we return the error so
 2145 	the caller can do the right thing.
 2146 
 2147 	New Files:
 2148 	* mac/MW_TclHeader.h:
 2149 	* mac/MW_TclTestHeader.h:
 2150 	* mac/MW_TclTestHeader.pch:
 2151 	* mac/MW_TclAppleScriptHeader.h: More convenient to use .h prefix
 2152 	files in the preference panels...
 2153 
 2154 	The above are curtesy of Daniel Steffen (steffen@math.mq.edu.au)

 2158 	* tests/clock.test: Added tests for "next monthname" constructs.
 2159 	* generic/tclDate.c:
 2160 	* generic/tclGetDate.y (Message): Added a grammar rule for "next
 2161 	monthname" so that we can handle "next january" and similar constructs
 2162 	(bug #4146).
 2163

 2181 
 2182 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
 2183 	* generic/tcl.decls: change Tcl_GetOpenFile to use decl of 'int
 2184 	forWriting' instead of 'int write' to avoid shadowing [Bug: 4121]
 2185 
 2186 	* tests/httpold.test: changed test script to source in the httpd
 2187 	server procs from httpd instead of having its own set.
 2188

 2200 
 2201 2000-02-03  Eric Melski <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2202 
 2203 	* doc/Package.n:
 2204 	* doc/packagens.n: Renamed Package.n -> packagens.n because Windows
 2205 	can't deal with case-sensitive names.
 2206 
 2207 2000-02-02  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2208 
 2209 	* tests/regexp.test: added tests for -all and -inline switches

 2214 2000-02-01  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2215 
 2216 	* library/init.tcl: Applied patch from rfe 1734 regarding auto_load
 2217 	errors not setting error message and errorInfo properly.
 2218 
 2219 2000-02-01  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2220 
 2221 	* win/Makefile.in (install-*): reduced verbosity of install
 2222 
 2223 	* generic/tclFileName.c (Tcl_JoinPath): improved support for special
 2224 	QNX node id prefixes in pathnames [Bug: 4053]
 2225 
 2226 	* library/http1.0/http.tcl:

 2228 	terminated when it shouldn't be altered [Bug: 4089]
 2229 
 2230 2000-01-31  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2231 
 2232 	* tests/package.test:
 2233 	* library/tclIndex:
 2234 	* library/package.tcl: Added ::package namespace and ::package::create
 2235 	function.
 2236 
 2237 	* library/init.tcl: Fixed problem with auto_load and determining if
 2238 	commands were loaded.

 2247 
 2248 2000-01-28  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2249 
 2250 	* tests/pkg/magicchar2.tcl:
 2251 	* tests/autoMkindex.test: Test for auto loader fix (bug #2480).
 2252 
 2253 	* library/init.tcl: auto_load was using [info commands $name] to
 2254 	determine if a given command was available; if the command name had *
 2255 	or [] it, this would fail because info commands uses glob-style
 2256 	matching. This is fixed. (Bug #2480).
 2257 
 2258 	* tests/pkg/spacename.tcl:
 2259 	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test: Tests for fix for bug #2360.
 2260 
 2261 	* library/package.tcl: Fixed to extract only the first element of the
 2262 	list returned by auto_qualify (bug #2360).
 2263 
 2264 	* tests/pkg/magicchar.tcl:
 2265 	* tests/autoMkindex.test: Test for fix for bug #2611.
 2266 
 2267 	* library/auto.tcl: Fixed the regular expression that performs $
 2268 	escaping before sourcing a file to index. It was erroneously adding \
 2269 	escapes even to $'s that were already escaped, effectively
 2270 	"un-escaping" those $'s. (bug #2611).
 2271 
 2272 2000-01-27  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2273 
 2274 	* tests/autoMkindex.test:
 2275 	* library/auto.tcl: Applied patch (with slight modification) from bug
 2276 	#2701: auto_mkIndex uses platform dependent file paths. Added test for
 2277 	fix.
 2278 
 2279 2000-01-27  Jennifer Hom  <jenn@scriptics.com>
 2280 
 2281 	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl: Changed NormalizePath to
 2282 	normalizePath and exported it as a public proc. This proc creates an
 2283 	absolute path given the name of the variable containing the path to
 2284 	modify. The path is modified in place.
 2285 	* library/tcltest1.0/pkgIndex.tcl: Added normalizePath.
 2286 	* tests/all.tcl: Changed code to use normalizePath.
 2287 
 2288 2000-01-27  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2289 
 2290 	* tests/pkg/samename.tcl: test file for bug #1983
 2291 
 2292 	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test:
 2293 	* doc/pkgMkIndex.n:
 2294 	* library/package.tcl: Per rfe #4097, optimized creation of direct
 2295 	load packages to bypass computing the list of commands added by the
 2296 	new package. Also made direct loading the default, and added a -lazy
 2297 	option.
 2298 	Fixed bug #1983, dealing with pkg_mkIndex incorrectly handling
 2299 	situations with two procs by the same name but in different namespaces
 2300 	(ie, foo::baz and bar::baz).
 2301 
 2302 2000-01-26  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2303 
 2304 	* generic/tclNamesp.c: Undid fix for #956, which broke backwards
 2305 	compatibility.
 2306 
 2307 	* doc/variable.n:
 2308 	* doc/trace.n:
 2309 	* doc/namespace.n:
 2310 	* doc/info.n: Added further information about differences between
 2311 	"namespace which" and "info exists".
 2312 
 2313 	* doc/SetErrno.3: Added descriptions of ErrnoId() and ErrnoMsg()
 2314 	functions.
 2315 
 2316 2000-01-25  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2317 
 2318 	* unix/tcl.m4: modified EXTRA_CFLAGS to add -DHAVE_TZSET for OSF1-V*
 2319 	and ULTRIX-4.* when not using gcc. Also added higher min stack size
 2320 	for OSF1-V* when building with threads. [Bug: 4063]
 2321 
 2322 	* generic/tclClock.c (FormatClock): inlined resultPtr, as it
 2323 	conflicted with var creation for HAVE_TZSET #def [Bug: 4063]
 2324 
 2325 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LsortObjCmd): fixed potential leak when
 2326 	calling lsort -command with bad command [Bug: 4067]
 2327 
 2328 	* generic/tclFileName.c (Tcl_JoinPath): added support for special QNX
 2329 	node id prefixes in pathnames [Bug: 4053]
 2330 
 2331 	* doc/ListObj.3: clarified Tcl_ListObjGetElements docs [Bug: 4080]
 2332 
 2333 	* doc/glob.n: clarified Mac path separator determination docs.
 2334 
 2335 	* win/makefile.vc: added some support for building helpfile on Windows
 2336 
 2337 2000-01-23  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2338 
 2339 	* library/init.tcl (auto_execok): added 'start' to list of recognized
 2340 	built-in commands for COMSPEC on NT. [Bug: 2858]
 2341 
 2342 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h: moved include of <utime.h> lower since some
 2343 	systems (UTS) require sys/types.h to be included first [Bug: 4031]
 2344 
 2345 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (CreateSocketAddress): changed comparison with -1
 2346 	to 0xFFFFFFFF, to ensure 32 bit comparison even on 64 bit systems.
 2347 	[Bug: 3878]
 2348 
 2349 	* generic/tclFileName.c: improved guessing of path separator for the
 2350 	Mac. (Darley)
 2351 
 2352 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 2353 	* generic/tcl.decls: moved Tcl_ProcObjCmd to stubs table [Bug: 3827]
 2354 	and removed 'register' from stub definition of
 2355 	Tcl_AppendUnicodeToObj [Bug: 4038]
 2356 
 2357 2000-01-21  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2358 
 2359 	* unix/mkLinks:
 2360 	* doc/GetHostName.3: Man page for Tcl_GetHostName (bug #1817).
 2361 
 2362 	* doc/lreplace.n: Corrected man page with respect to treatment of
 2363 	empty lists, and "prettied up" the page. (bug #1705).
 2364 
 2365 2000-01-20  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2366 
 2367 	* tests/namespace.test: Added test for undefined variables with
 2368 	namespace which (bug #956).
 2369 
 2370 	* generic/tclNamesp.c: Added check for undefined variables in
 2371 	NamespaceWhichCmd (bug #956).
 2372 
 2373 	* tests/var.test: Added tests for corrected variable behavior (bug
 2374 	#981).
 2375 
 2376 	* doc/upvar.n: Expanded explanation of upvar behavior with respect to
 2377 	variable traces. (bugs 3917 1433 2110).
 2378 
 2379 	* generic/tclVar.c: Changed behavior of variable command when name
 2380 	refers to an element in an array (ie, "variable foo(x)") to always
 2381 	return an error, regardless of existance of that element in the array
 2382 	(now behavior is consistant with docs too) (bug #981).
 2383 
 2384 2000-01-20  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2385 
 2386 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoBodyCmd): made [info body] return a string
 2387 	if the body has been bytecompiled.
 2388 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalObjEx): added pedantic check for
 2389 	originating proc body of bytecompiled code, #def'd out as the change
 2390 	for [info body] should make it unnecessary
 2391 
 2392 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c (Tcl_InitNotifier): added cast for tsdPtr
 2393 
 2394 	* tests/set.test: added test for complex array elem name compiling
 2395 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileSetCmd): Fixed parsing of array
 2396 	elements during compiling, and slightly optimised same [Bug: 3889]
 2397 
 2398 	* doc/tclvars.n: added definitions for tcl_(non)wordchars
 2399 
 2400 	* doc/vwait.n: added notes about requirement for vwait var being
 2401 	globally scoped [Bug: 3329]
 2402 
 2403 	* library/word.tcl: changed tcl_(non)wordchars settings to use new
 2404 	unicode regexp char class escapes instead of char sequences
 2405 
 2406 2000-01-14  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2407 
 2408 	* tests/var.test: Added a test for the array multiple delete
 2409 	protection in Tcl_UnsetVar2.
 2410 
 2411 	* generic/tclVar.c: Added protection in Tcl_UnsetVar2 against attempts
 2412 	to multiply delete arrays when unsetting them (bug #3453). This could
 2413 	happen if there was an unset trace on an array element and the trace
 2414 	proc made a global or upvar link to the array, and then the array was
 2415 	unset at the global level. See the bug reference for more information.
 2416 
 2417 	* unix/tclUnixTime.c: New clock format format.
 2418 
 2419 	* compat/strftime.c: New clock format format.
 2420 
 2421 	* generic/tclGetDate.y: New clock scan format.
 2422 
 2423 2000-01-13  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2424 
 2425 	* changes: updated changes file to reflect 8.3b2 mods

 2427 	* README:
 2428 	* generic/tcl.h:
 2429 	* tools/tcl.wse.in:
 2430 	* unix/configure.in:
 2431 	* unix/tcl.m4:
 2432 	* win/README.binary:
 2433 	* win/configure.in: updated to patchlevel 8.3b2
 2434 
 2435 	* generic/regexec.c: added var initialization to prevent compiler
 2436 	warning
 2437 
 2438 2000-01-13  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2439 
 2440 	* tests/cmdIL.test: Added tests for lsort -dictionary with characters
 2441 	that occur between Z and a in ASCII.
 2442 
 2443 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c: Modified DictionaryCompare function (used by
 2444 	lsort -dictionary) to do upper/lower case equivalency before doing
 2445 	character comparisons, instead of after. This fixes bug #1357, in
 2446 	which lsort -dictionary [list ` AA c CC] and lsort -dictionary [list
 2447 	AA c ` CC] gave different (and both wrong) results.
 2448 
 2449 2000-01-12  Eric Melski  <ericm@scriptics.com>
 2450 
 2451 	* tests/clock.test: Added tests for "next <day-of-week>" and
 2452 	"<day-of-week>"

 2454 
 2455 	* doc/tests/clock.test: Added numerous tests for clock scan.
 2456 
 2457 	* doc/generic/tclGetDate.y: Fixed some shift/reduce conflicts in clock
 2458 	grammar.
 2459 
 2460 	* doc/doc/clock.n: Added documentation for new supported clock scan
 2461 	formats and additional explanation of daylight savings time correction
 2462 	algorithm.
 2463 
 2464 2000-01-12  Jeff Hobbs  <hobbs@scriptics.com>
 2465 
 2466 	* doc/file.n:
 2467 	* tests/unixFCmd.test:
 2468 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c: added support for symbolic permissions setting
 2469 	in SetPermissionsAttribute (file attr $file -perm ...) [Bug: 3970]
 2470 
 2471 	* generic/tclClock.c: fixed support for 64bit handling of clock values
