    3 	* win/makefile.vc: some uses of xcopy swapped to the @$(CPY) macro.
    4 	Reported by Joe Mistachkin <joe@mistachkin.com>.
    5 
    6 2002-12-17  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
    7 
    8 	* generic/tclNotify.c (TclFinalizeNotifier, Tcl_SetServiceMode):
    9 	(Tcl_ThreadAlert): Check that the stub functions are non-NULL before
   10 	calling them. They could be set to NULL by Tcl_SetNotifier.
   11 
   12 2002-12-16  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
   13 
   14 	* generic/tclPipe.c (TclCleanupChildren):
   15 	* tests/winPipe.test:
   16 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (Tcl_WaitPid):
   17 	* win/tclWinTest.c:  Gave Tcl_WaitPid the ability to return a Win32
   18 	exception code translated into a posix style SIG*. This allows [close]
   19 	to report "CHILDKILLED" without the meaning getting lost in a
   20 	truncated exit code. In TclCleanupChildren(), TclpGetPid() had to get
   21 	moved to before Tcl_WaitPid() as the the handle is removed from the
   22 	list taking away the ability to get the process id after the wait is
   23 	done. This shouldn't effect the unix implimentaion unless waitpid is
   24 	called with a pid of zero, meaning "any". I don't think it is..
   25 
   26 2002-12-13  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
   27 
   28 	* unix/configure.in:	Updated configure of CVS snapshots to reflect
   29 	* win/configure.in:	the 8.4.1.1 patchlevel.
   30 
   31 	* unix/configure:	autoconf
   32 	* win/configure		autoconf
   33 
   34 2002-12-11  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
   35 
   36 	* generic/tclProc.c (ProcessProcResultCode): Fix failure to propagate
   37 	negative return codes up the call stack. [Bug 647307]
   38 	* tests/proc.test (proc-6.1): Test for Bug 647307
   39 
   40 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c (TclParseInteger):  Return 1 for the string
   41 	"0x" (recognize leading "0" as an integer). [Bug 648441]
   42 	* tests/parseExpr.test (parseExpr-19.1): Test for Bug 648441.
   43 
   44 2002-12-09  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
   45 
   46 	* win/tclWinThrd.c (TclpMasterUnlock):
   47 	* generic/tclThread.c (TclFinalizeThreadData): TclpMasterUnlock must
   48 	exist and be called unconditional of TCL_THREADS. [Bug 651139]
   49 
   50 2002-12-08  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
   51 
   52 	* win/tclWinSock.c (SocketThreadExitHandler, InitSockets):  Check
   53 	that the tsdPtr is valid before dereferencing as we call it from the
   54 	exit handler, too [Bug 650353]. Another WSAStartup() loaded version
   55 	comparison byte swap issue fixed. Although 0x0101 byte swapped is
   56 	still 0x0101, properly claiming which is major/minor is more correct.
   57 
   58 2002-12-06  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
   59 
   60 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: regen
   61 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h: regen
   62 	* generic/tclInt.decls: added TclWinResetInterface
   63 
   64 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c (TclWinResetInterfaces):
   65 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpSetInitialEncodings, WinEncodingsCleanup):
   66 	add exit handler that resets the encoding information to a state where
   67 	we can reuse Tcl. Following these changes, it is possible to reuse Tcl
   68 	(following Tcl_FindExecutable or Tcl_CreateInterp) following a
   69 	Tcl_Finalize.
   70 
   71 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (TclFinalizeFilesystem): reset statics to their
   72 	original values on finalize to allow reuse of the library.
   73 
   74 2002-12-04  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
   75 
   76 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: reverted back to -r1.27 due to numerous test
   77 	failures that need to be resolved first. The idea was good, but the
   78 	details aren't.
   79 
   80 2002-12-04  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
   81 
   82 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (Tcl_WaitPid):  When a process exits with an
   83 	exception, pass this notice on to the caller with a SIG* code rather
   84 	than truncating the exit code and missing the meaning. This allows
   85 	TclCleanupChildren() to report "CHILDKILLED".
   86 
   87 	This has a different behavior than unix in that closing the read pipe
   88 	to a process sends the SIGPIPE signal which is returned as a SIGPIPE
   89 	exit status. On windows, we send the process a CTRL_BREAK_EVENT and
   90 	get back a CONTROL_C_EXIT which is documented to mean a SIGINT which
   91 	seems wrong as a system, but is the correct exit status.
   92 
   93 2002-12-04  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
   94 
   95 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fix to redirected 'load' in virtual filesystem
   96 	for some Unix systems.
   97 
   98 	* generic/tclEvent.c: the filesystem must be cleaned up before the
   99 	encoding subsystem because it needs access to encodings. Fixes crash
  100 	on exit observed in embedded applications.
  101 
  102 	* generic/tclTestObj.c: patch omitted from previous change of
  103 	2002-11-13
  104 
  105 2002-12-03  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  106 
  107 	* generic/tclStubLib.c (Tcl_InitStubs): prevent the cached check of
  108 	tclStubsPtr to allow for repeated load/unload of the Tcl dll by
  109 	hosting apps. [Bug 615304]
  110 
  111 2002-12-03  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  112 
  113 	* win/tclAppInit.c (sigHandler): Protect from trying to close a NULL
  114 	handle.
  115 
  116 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (PipeClose2Proc, TclpCreateProcess): Send a real
  117 	Win32 signal (CTRL_C_EVENT) when the read channel is brought down to
  118 	alert the child to close on its side. Start the process with
  119 	CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP to allow the ability to send these signals.
  120 	The following test case now brings down the child without the use of
  121 	an external [kill] command.
  122 
  123 	% set p [open "|[info name]" w+]
  124 	file8d5380
  125 	% pid $p
  126 	2876
  127 	% close $p     <- now doesn't block in Tcl_WaitPid()
  128 	%
  129 
  130 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (PipeClose2Proc): Changed CTRL_C_EVENT to
  131 	CTRL_BREAK_EVENT as it can't be ignored by the child and proved to
  132 	work on [open "|netstat 1" w+] where CTRL_C_EVENT didn't.
  133 
  134 2002-11-27  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  135 
  136 	* win/tclWinPort.h: Don't turn off winsock prototypes!  TclX didn't
  137 	like it. Even though the core doesn't use the prototypes, do offer
  138 	them.
  139 
  140 	* win/tclWinSock.c: Removed shutdown() from the function table as it
  141 	wasn't referenced anywhere and cleaned-up some casting that that
  142 	wasn't needed.
  143 
  144 	* win/tclWinSock.c: WSAStartup() loaded version comparison error which
  145 	resulted in 2.0 looking less than 1.1.
  146 
  147 	* win/tclWinChan.c (Tcl_MakeFileChannel): return of DuplicateHandle()
  148 	incorrectly used. [Bug 618852]
  149 
  150 2002-11-26  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  151 
  152 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (TclFinalizeEncodingSubsystem): properly
  153 	cleanup all encodings by using Tcl_FirstHashEntry in the while loop.
  154 
  155 	* unix/Makefile.in (valgrind): add simple valgrind target
  156 
  157 	* tests/exec.test: unset path var to allow singleproc testing
  158 
  159 	* generic/tclInterp.c (AliasCreate): preserve/release interps to
  160 	prevent possible FMR error in bad alias cases.
  161 
  162 2002-11-26  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  163 
  164 	* win/tclWinPort.h:
  165 	* win/tclWinSock.c:  This patch does two things:
  166 
  167 	1) Cleans-up the winsock typedefs by using the typedefs provided by
  168 	winsock2.h. This has no effect on how winsock is initialized; just
  169 	makes the source code easier to read. [Patch 561305 561301]
  170 
  171 	2) Revamps how the socket message handler thread is brought up and
  172 	down to allow for cleaner exits without the use of TerminateThread().
  173 	TerminateThread is evil. No attempt has been made to resolve [Bug
  174 	593810] which may need a new channel driver version for adding a
  175 	registering function within the transfered thread to init the handler
  176 	thread. IOW, initialization of the TSD structure is getting bypassed
  177 	through the thread extension's [thread::transfer] command.
  178 
  179 2002-11-26  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  180 
  181 	* win/tclWinConsole.c:
  182 	* win/tclWinPipe.c:
  183 	* win/tclWinSerial.c:
  184 	* win/tclWinSock.c:
  185 	* win/tclWinThrd.c:
  186 	* win/tclWinTime.c:  General cleanup of all worker threads used by the
  187 	channel drivers. Eliminates the normal case where the worker thread is
  188 	terminated ('cept the winsock one). Instead, use kernel events to
  189 	signal a clean exit. Only when the worker thread is blocked on an I/O
  190 	call is the thread terminated. Essentially, this makes all other
  191 	channel worker threads behave like the PipeReaderThread() function for
  192 	it's cleaner exit behavior. This appears to fix [Bug 597924] but needs
  193 	3rd party confirmation to close the issue.
  194 
  195 2002-11-26  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
  196 
  197 	* win/README: Update msys build env URL. This release #4 build both
  198 	tcl and tk without problems.
  199 
  200 2002-11-22  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  201 
  202 	* library/init.tcl:         code cleanup to reduce use of
  203 	* library/opt/optparse.tcl: string compare
  204 
  205 	* tests/interp.test: interp-14.4
  206 	* generic/tclInterp.c (TclPreventAliasLoop): prevent seg fault when
  207 	creating an alias command over the interp name. [Bug 641195]
  208 
  209 2002-11-18  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  210 
  211 	* generic/tclUtil.c (SetEndOffsetFromAny): handle integer offset
  212 	after the "end-" prefix.
  213 
  214 	* generic/get.test:
  215 	* generic/string.test:
  216 	* generic/tclObj.c (SetIntFromAny, SetWideIntFromAny):
  217 	* generic/tclGet.c (TclGetLong, Tcl_GetInt): simplify sign handling
  218 	before calling strtoul(l). [Bug 634856]
  219 
  220 2002-11-18  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  221 
  222 	* win/tclWinThrd.c (Tcl_CreateThread/TclpThreadExit): Fixed improper
  223 	compiler macros that missed the VC++ compiler. This resulted in VC++
  224 	builds using CreateThread()/ExitThread() in place of the proper
  225 	_beginthreadex()/_endthreadex(). This was a large error and am
  226 	surprised I missed seeing it earlier.
  227 
  228 2002-11-13  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  229 
  230 	* generic/regexpComp.test: added tests 22.*
  231 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileRegexpCmd): add left and right
  232 	anchoring (^ and $) recognition and check starting or ending .* to
  233 	extend the number of REs that can be compiled to string match or
  234 	string equal.
  235 
  236 2002-11-13  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
  237 
  238 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:
  239 	* tests/trace.test: applied patch from Hemang Levana to fix [Bug
  240 	615043] in execution traces with 'return -code error'.
  241 
  242 	* generic/tclTestObj.c:
  243 	* tests/stringObj.test: added 'knownBug' test for [Bug 635200]
  244 	* generic/tclStringObj.c: corrected typos in comments
  245 
  246 	* generic/tclFileName.c:
  247 	* tests/fileName.test: applied patch for bug reported against tclvfs
  248 	concerning handling of Windows serial ports like 'com1', 'lpt3' by the
  249 	virtual filesystem code.
  250 
  251 	* doc/RegExp.3: clarification of the 'extendMatch' return values.
  252 
  253 2002-11-11  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  254 
  255 	* generic/tclUtil.c (Tcl_Backslash): use TclUtfToUniChar.
  256 	(Tcl_StringCaseMatch): use TclUtfToUniChar and add further
  257 	optimizations for the one-byte/char case.
  258 
  259 	* generic/tclUtf.c: make use of TclUtfToUniChar macro throughout the
  260 	functions, and add extra optimization to Tcl_NumUtfChars for
  261 	one-byte/char case.
  262 
  263 	* generic/tclVar.c (DisposeTraceResult, CallVarTraces): add proper
  264 	static declarations.
  265 
  266 	* generic/tclStringObj.c (Tcl_GetCharLength): optimize for the ascii
  267 	char case.
  268 	(Tcl_GetUniChar): remove unnecessary use of Tcl_UtfToUniChar.
  269 	(FillUnicodeRep): Use TclUtfToUniChar.
  270 
  271 	* generic/tclHash.c (HashStringKey): move string++ lower to save an
  272 	instruction.
  273 
  274 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): improve INST_STR_CMP to
  275 	use memcmp in the one-byte/char case, also use direct index for
  276 	INST_STR_INDEX in that case.
  277 
  278 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (UtfToUtfProc, UtfToUnicodeProc):
  279 	(TableFromUtfProc, EscapeFromUtfProc): Use TclUtfToUniChar.
  280 	(UnicodeToUtfProc, TableToUtfProc): add 1-byte char optimizations for
  281 	Tcl_UniCharToUtf call. These improve encoded channel conversion speeds
  282 	by up to 20%.
  283 
  284 	* tests/split.test: added 1-char string split tests
  285 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_SplitObjCmd): Use TclUtfToUniChar. Also
  286 	added a special case for single-ascii-char splits.
  287 	(Tcl_StringObjCmd): Use TclUtfToUniChar. For STR_RANGE, support
  288 	getting ranges of ByteArrays (reverts change from 2000-05-26).
  289 	(TraceExecutionProc) add proper static declaration.
  290 
  291 	* generic/tclInt.h: add macro version of Tcl_UtfToUniChar
  292 	(TclUtfToUniChar) that does the one-byte utf-char check without
  293 	calling Tcl_UtfToUniChar, for use by the core. This brings notable
  294 	speedups for primarily ascii string handling.
  295 
  296 	* generic/tcl.h (TCL_PATCH_LEVEL): bump to 8.4.1.1 for patchlevel
  297 	only. This interim number will only be reflected by [info patchlevel].
  298 
  299 2002-11-11  Kevin Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  300 
  301 	* doc/Tcl.n: Corrected indentation of the new language. Oops.
  302 
  303 2002-11-10  Kevin Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
  304 
  305 	* doc/Tcl.n: Added language to the Endekalogue to make it clear that
  306 	substitutions always take place from left to right. [Bug 635644]
  307 
  308 2002-11-06  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
  309 
  310 	* changes: Note TclInExit TclInThreadExit changes.
  311 	* generic/tclEvent.c (TclInExit, TclInThreadExit): Split out
  312 	functionality of TclInExit to make it clear which one should be called
  313 	in each situation.
  314 	* generic/tclInt.decls: Declare TclInThreadExit.
  315 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h: Regen.
  316 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: Regen.
  317 	* mac/tclMacChan.c (StdIOClose):
  318 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (FileCloseProc):
  319 	* win/tclWinChan.c (FileCloseProc):
  320 	* win/tclWinConsole.c (ConsoleCloseProc):
  321 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (TclpCloseFile):
  322 	* win/tclWinSerial.c (SerialCloseProc): Invoke the new TclInThreadExit
  323 	method instead of TclInExit.
  324 
  325 2002-11-06  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
  326 
  327 	* unix/configure: Regen.
  328 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Generate a fatal configure error if
  329 	no ar program can be found on the path. [Bug 582039]
  330 	* win/configure: Regen.
  331 	* win/configure.in: Check that AR, RANLIB, and RC are found on the
  332 	path when building with gcc.
  333 
  334 2002-11-03  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  335 
  336 	* win/tclAppInit.c:  Calls Registry_Init() and Dde_Init() when
  337 	STATIC_BUILD and TCL_USE_STATIC_PACKAGES macros are set.
  338 
  339 	* win/makefile.vc:
  340 	* win/rules.vc:  linkexten option now sets the TCL_USE_STATIC_PACKAGES
  341 	macro which also adds the registry and dde object files to the link
  342 	of the shell. [Patch 479697] Also factored some additional macros that
  343 	will be helpful for extension authors. Version grepping of tcl.h will
  344 	need to be added to complete this.
  345 
  346 	* win/buildall.vc.bat: Added more descriptive commentary.
  347 
  348 2002-11-01  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  349 
  350 	* win/tclWinReg.c:  Changed the Tcl_PkgProvide() line to declare the
  351 	registry extension at version 1.1 from 1.0.
  352 
  353 2002-10-31  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
  354 
  355 	* library/word.tcl: Changed $tcl_platform to $::tcl_platform to avoid
  356 	possible scope trouble.
  357 
  358 2002-10-29  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
  359 
  360 	* win/tclWinInt.h:
  361 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: added comments about certain NULL function
  362 	pointers which will be filled in when Tcl_FindExecutable is called, so
  363 	that users don't report invalid bugs on this topic. (No code changes
  364 	at all).
  365 
  366 2002-10-29  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  367 
  368 	* unix/tclLoadDyld.c (TclpFindSymbol): pass all dyld error messages
  369 	upstream [Bug 627546].
  370 
  371 2002-10-28  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
  372 
  373 	* library/dde/pkgIndex.tcl:
  374 	* library/reg/pkgIndex.tcl: Changed the hardwired debug suffix (d) to
  375 	the correct suffix (g).
  376 
  377 2002-10-28  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  378 
  379 	* library/auto.tcl:	Converted the Mac-specific [package unknown]
  380 	* library/init.tcl:	behavior to use a chaining mechanism to extend
  381 	* library/package.tcl:	the default [tclPkgUnknown]. [Bug 627660]
  382 	* library/tclIndex:	[Patch 624509] (steffen)
  383 
  384 2002-10-26  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  385 
  386 	* win/makefile.vc: xcopy on NT 4.0 doesn't support the /Y switch
  387 	(overwrite). Added logic to handle this. [Bug 618019]
  388 
  389 2002-10-23  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
  390 
  391 	* generic/tclInt.h: Removed definitions of obsolete HistoryEvent and
  392 	HistoryRev structures (the history mechanism has been written in Tcl
  393 	for some time now.)
  394 
  395 2002-10-22  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>

  421 
  422 	* doc/StringObj.3, doc/Object.3: Documented that Tcl_Obj's standard
  423 	string form is a modified UTF-8; apparently, this was not mentioned

  520 
  521 	* win/tclWinTime.c: Added code to set an exit handler that terminates
  522 	the thread that calibrates the performance counter, so that the thread
  523 	won't outlive unloading the Tcl DLL. [Bug 620735]

  544 	associated constants with the <fcntl.h> analogues (they existing defs
  545 	were inconsistent with <fcntl.h> which was causing havoc when
  546 	Tcl_GetOpenMode was used instead of private GetOpenMode).
  547 
  548 	* mac/tclMacFCmd.c: removed GenerateUniqueName(), use equivalent (and
  549 	identically named) routine from MoreFiles instead.
  550

  579 
  580 	* doc/tcltest.n: fixed typo [Bug 618018]. Thanks to "JJM".

  586 	* tests/env.test, tests/binary.test, tests/autoMkindex.test:
  587 	* library/init.tcl, library/http/http.tcl: [info exist] should really
  588 	be [info exists]. [Bug 602566]
  589 
  590 	* doc/lsearch.n: Better specification of what happens when -sorted is
  591 	mixed with other options. [Bug 617816]
  592 
  593 2002-10-01  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  594 
  595 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclCreateProc): mask out VAR_UNDEFINED for
  596 	precompiled locals to support 8.3 precompiled code.
  597 	(Tcl_ProcObjCmd): correct 2002-09-26 fix to look for tclProcBodyType.

  605 
  606 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileRegexpCmd): correct the checking
  607 	for bad re's that didn't terminate the re string. Resultant compiles
  608 	were correct, but much slower than necessary.
  609 
  610 2002-09-29  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  611 
  612 	* win/tclAppInit.c: Added proper exiting conditions using Win32
  613 	console signals. This handles the existing lack of a Ctrl+C exit to
  614 	call exit handlers when built for thread support. Also, properly
  615 	handles exits from other conditions such as CTRL_CLOSE_EVENT,
  616 	CTRL_LOGOFF_EVENT, and CTRL_SHUTDOWN_EVENT signals. In all cases,
  617 	exit handlers will be called. [Bug 219355]
  618 
  619 	* win/makefile.vc: Added missing tclThreadAlloc.c to the build rules
  620 	and defines USE_THREAD_ALLOC when TCL_THREADS is defined to get the
  621 	new behavior by default.

  638 	* unix/tcl.m4: improve AIX-4/5 64bit compilation support.
  639 
  640 	* generic/tclProc.c (Tcl_ProcObjCmd): correct overeager optimization
  641 	of noop proc to handle the precompiled case. (sofer)
  642 
  643 	* unix/ldAix (nmopts): add -X32_64 to make it work for 32 or 64bit
  644 	mode compilation.
  645 
  646 	* library/encoding/koi8-u.enc: removed extraneous spaces that confused
  647 	encoding reader. [Bug 615115]
  648 
  649 	* unix/Makefile.in: generate source dists with -src designator and do
  650 	not generate .Z anymore (just .gz and .zip).

  652 2002-09-18  Mumit Khan <khan@nanotech.wisc.edu>
  653 
  654 	Added basic Cygwin support.

  660 	flags. Add -mwin32 to extra_cflags and extra_ldflags. Remove ``-e
  661 	_WinMain@16'' from LDFLAGS_WINDOW.
  662 	* win/configure.in: Allow Cygwin build.
  663 	(SEH test): Define to be 1 instead of empty value.
  664 	(EXCEPTION_DISPOSITION): Add test.
  665 	* win/configure: Regenerate.
  666 
  667 	* generic/tcl.h: Don't explicitly define __WIN32__ for Cygwin, let the
  668 	user decide whether to use Windows or POSIX personality.
  669 	(TCL_WIDE_INT_TYPE, TCL_LL_MODIFIER, struct Tcl_StatBuf): Define for
  670 	Cygwin.
  671 	* generic/tclEnv.c (Tcl_CygwinPutenv): putenv replacement for Cygwin.
  672 	* generic/tclFileName.c (Tcl_TranslateFileName): Convert POSIX to

  678 
  679 2002-09-26  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  680 
  681 	* macosx/Makefile: preserve environment value of INSTALL_ROOT. When
  682 	embedding only use deployment build. Force relink before embedded
  683 	build to ensure new linker flags are picked up.
  684 
  685 	* macosx/Tcl.pbproj/project.pbxproj: add symbolic links to debug lib,
  686 	stub libs and tclConfig.sh in framework toplevel. Configure target
  687 	dependency fix. Fix to 'clean' action. Added private tcl headers to
  688 	framework. Install tclsh symbolic link. Html doc build works when no
  689 	installed tclsh available. Made html doc structure in framework more
  690 	like in Apple frameworks.

  702 	appropriate moment. I believe this is the cause of [Bug 613117]
  703 
  704 	* doc/lset.n: Changed 'list' to 'varName' for consistency with lappend
  705 	documentation. Thanks to Glenn Jackman [Bug 611719]

  718 	* unix/configure: Regen.
  719 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Add PEEK_XCLOSEIM define under

  738 
  739 	* unix/README: Add note about building extensions with the same
  740 	compiler Tcl was built with. [Tk Bug 592096]

  752 	LIB_RUNTIME_DIR in the -install_name argument to ld.
  753 	* unix/configure: regen.
  754 
  755 	* macosx/Tcl.pbproj/project.pbxproj:
  756 	* macosx/Makefile: added support for building Tcl as an embedded
  757 	framework, i.e. using an dyld install_name containing

  798 	* unix/tcl.m4:    enabled build. [Bug 602849]
  799 
  800 2002-09-03  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  801 
  802 	* generic/tclInterp.c (AliasCreate): a Tcl_Obj was leaked on error
  803 	return from TclPreventAliasLoop.
  804 
  805 2002-09-03  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  806 
  807 	* macosx/Tcl.pbproj/project.pbxproj: Bumped version number to 8.4.0
  808 	and updated copyright info.
  809 
  810 2002-09-03  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  811 
  812 	* generic/tclVar.c (Tcl_UpVar2): a Tcl_Obj was being leaked on error
  813 	return from TclGetFrame.
  814 
  815 2002-09-03  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>

  818 
  819 2002-09-02  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  820 
  821 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c (TclpObjLink): removed unnecessary/unfreed extra
  822 	native char*.
  823 
  824 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (Tcl_MakeTcpClientChannel): make sure to init
  825 	flags field of TcpState ptr to 0.
  826 
  827 	* unix/configure:
  828 	* unix/tcl.m4: added 64-bit gcc compilation support on HP-11.
  829 	[Patch 601051] (martin)
  830 
  831 	* README:		Bumped version number to 8.4.0
  832 	* generic/tcl.h:

  838 	* win/configure:
  839 	* win/configure.in:
  840 
  841 	* generic/tclInterp.c (SlaveCreate): make sure that the memory and
  842 	checkmem commands are initialized in non-safe slave interpreters when
  843 	TCL_MEM_DEBUG is used. [Bug 583445]
  844 
  845 	* win/tclWinConsole.c (ConsoleCloseProc): only wait on writable pipe
  846 	if there was something to write. This may prevent infinite wait on
  847 	exit.
  848 
  849 	* tests/exec.test: marked exec-18.1 unixOnly until the Windows
  850 	incompatibility (in the test, not the core) can be resolved.
  851 
  852 	* tests/http.test (http-3.11): added close $fp that was causing an
  853 	error on Windows because the file was not closed before deleting.
  854 
  855 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (Tcl_MacOSXGetLibraryPath): made this static
  856 	function only appear when HAVE_CFBUNDLE is defined.
  857 
  858 2002-08-31  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  859 
  860 	* unix/tcl.m4: added TK_SHLIB_LD_EXTRAS analogue of existing
  861 	TCL_SHLIB_LD_EXTRAS for linker settings only used when linking Tk.
  862 
  863 	* unix/configure: regen

  866 
  867 	*** macosx-8-4-branch merged into the mainline [Patch 602770] ***
  868 
  869 	* generic/tcl.decls: added new macosx specific entry to stubs table.
  870 
  871 	* tools/genStubs.tcl: added generation of platform guards for
  872 	macosx. This is a little more complex than it seems, because MacOS X
  873 	IS "unix" plus a little bit, for the purposes of Tcl. BUT
  874 	unfortunately, Tk uses "unix" to mean X11. So added platform keys for
  875 	macosx (the little added to "unix"), "aqua" and "x11" to distinguish
  876 	these for Tk.
  877 
  878 	* generic/tcl.h: added a #ifnded RESOURCE_INCLUDED so that tcl.h can
  879 	be passed to the resource compiler.
  880 
  881 	* generic/tcl.h:
  882 	* generic/tclNotify.c: added a few Notifier procs, to be able to
  883 	modify more bits of the Tcl notifier dynamically. Required to get Mac
  884 	OS X Tk to live on top of the Tcl Unix threaded notifier. Changes the
  885 	size of the Tcl_NotifierProcs structure, but doesn't move any elements
  886 	around.
  887 
  888 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c: moved the call to Tcl_ConditionNotify till
  889 	AFTER we are done mucking with the pointer swap. Fixes cases where the
  890 	thread waiting on the condition wakes & accesses the waitingListPtr
  891 	before it gets reset, causing a hang.
  892 
  893 	* library/auto.tcl (tcl_findLibrary): added checking the directories
  894 	in the tcl_pkgPath for library files on macosx to enable support of
  895 	the standard Mac OSX library locations.
  896 
  897 	* unix/Makefile.in:
  898 	* unix/configure.in:
  899 	* unix/tcl.m4: added MAC_OSX_DIR. Added PLAT_OBJS to the OBJS: there
  900 	are some MacOS X specific files now for Tcl, and when I get the
  901 	resource & applescript stuff ported over, and restore support for
  902 	FindFiles, etc, there will be a few more. Added LD_LIBRARY_PATH_VAR
  903 	configure variable to avoid having to set all possible LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  904 	analogues on all platforms. LD_LIBRARY_PATH_VAR is "LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
  905 	by default, "LIBPATH" on AIX, "SHLIB_PATH" on HPUX and
  906 	"DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH" on Mac OSX. Added configure option to package Tcl
  907 	as a framework on Mac OSX.
  908 
  909 	* macosx/tclMacOSXBundle.c (new): support for finding Tcl extension
  910 	packaged as 'bundles' in the standard Mac OSX library locations.
  911 
  912 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c: added support for findig the tcl script library
  913 	inside Tcl packaged as a framework on Mac OSX.
  914 
  915 	* macosx/Tcl.pbproj/jingham.pbxuser (new):
  916 	* macosx/Tcl.pbproj/project.pbxproj (new): project for Apple's
  917 	ProjectBuilder IDE.
  918 
  919 	* macosx/Makefile (new): simple makefile for building the project from
  920 	the command line via the ProjectBuilder tool 'pbxbuild'.
  921 
  922 	* unix/configure:
  923 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  924 	* generic/tclPlatDecls.h: regen
  925 
  926 2002-08-29  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
  927 
  928 	* win/tclWinThrd.c (TclpFinalizeThreadData, TclWinFreeAllocCache):
  929 	Applied patch for [Bug 599428], provided by Miguel Sofer
  930 	<msofer@users.sourceforge.net>.
  931 
  932 2002-08-28  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  933 
  934 	* generic/tclEnv.c:
  935 	* unix/configure.in:
  936 	* win/tclWinPort.h:  putenv() on some systems copies the buffer rather
  937 	than taking reference to it. This causes memory leaks and is know to
  938 	effect mswindows (msvcrt) and NetBSD 1.5.2 . This patch tests for this
  939 	behavior and turns on -DHAVE_PUTENV_THAT_COPIES=1 when approriate.
  940 	Thanks to David Welton for assistance. [Bug 414910]
  941 
  942 	* unix/configure: regen'd
  943 
  944 2002-08-28  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
  945 
  946 	* doc/eval.n: Added mention of list command and corrected "SEE ALSO".
  947 
  948 	* unix/configure.in: Cache handling of ac_cv_type_socklen_t was wrong.
  949 	[Bug 600931] reported by John Ellson. Fixed by putting the brackets
  950 	where they belong.
  951 
  952 2002-08-26  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  953 
  954 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c: fix for [Bug 599788] (error in element name
  955 	causing segfault), reported by Tom Wilkason. Fixed by copying the
  956 	tokens instead of the source string.
  957 
  958 2002-08-26  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  959 
  960 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c: small optimisation, reducing the new
  961 	allocator's overhead.
  962 
  963 2002-08-23  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  964 
  965 	* generic/tclObj.c (USE_THREAD_ALLOC): fixed leak [Bug 597936]. Thanks
  966 	to Zoran Vasiljevic.
  967 
  968 2002-08-23  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  969 
  970 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c (USE_THREAD_ALLOC): moving objects between
  971 	caches as a block, instead of one-by-one.
  972 
  973 2002-08-22  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
  974 
  975 	* generic/tclBasic.c:
  976 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c: fix for freed memory r/w in delete traces [Bug
  977 	589863], patch by Hemang Lavana.
  978 
  979 2002-08-20  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
  980 
  981 	* win/Makefile.in (CFLAGS):
  982 	* unix/Makefile.in (MEM_DEBUG_FLAGS): Added usage of @MEM_DEBUG_FLAGS@.
  983 	* win/configure.in:
  984 	* unix/configure.in: Added usage of SC_ENABLE_MEMDEBUG.
  985 	* win/tcl.m4:
  986 	* unix/tcl.m4: Added macro SC_ENABLE_MEMDEBUG. Allows a user of
  987 	configure to (de)activate memory validation and debugging
  988 	(TCL_MEM_DEBUG). No need to modify the makefile anymore.
  989 
  990 2002-08-20  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  991 
  992 	* generic/tclCkalloc.c:	CONSTified MemoryCmd and CheckmemCmd.
  993 
  994 	* README:		Bumped version number to 8.4b3 to distinguish
  995 	* generic/tcl.h:	HEAD from the 8.4b2 release.
  996 	* tools/tcl.wse.in:
  997 	* unix/configure.in:
  998 	* unix/tcl.spec:
  999 	* win/README.binary:
 1000 	* win/configure.in:
 1001 
 1002 	* unix/configure:	autoconf
 1003 	* win/configure:
 1004 
 1005 	* library/http/http.tcl:	Corrected installation directory of
 1006 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl:	the package tcltest 2.2. Added
 1007 	* library/opt/optparse.tcl:	comments in other packages to remind
 1008 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	that installation directories need
 1009 	* unix/Makefile.in:		updates to match increasing version
 1010 	* win/Makefile.in:		numbers. [Bug 597450]
 1011 	* win/makefile.bc:
 1012 	* win/makefile.vc:
 1013 
 1014 2002-08-19  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 1015 
 1016 	* unix/tclUnixTest.c (TestfilehandlerCmd): Changed readable/writable
 1017 	to the more common readable|writable. Fixes [Bug 596034] reported by
 1018 	Larry Virden <lvirden@users.sourceforge.net>.
 1019 
 1020 2002-08-16  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1021 
 1022 	* tests/fCmd.test: Added test to make sure that the cause of the
 1023 	problem is detectable with an unpatched Tcl.
 1024 	* doc/ObjectType.3: Added note on the root cause of this problem to
 1025 	the documentation, since it is possible for user code to trigger this
 1026 	sort of behaviour too.
 1027 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (SetFsPathFromAny): Objects should only have
 1028 	their old representation deleted when we know that we are about to
 1029 	install a new one. This stops a weird TclX bug under Linux with
 1030 	certain kinds of memory debugging enabled which essentally came down
 1031 	to a double-free of a string.
 1032 
 1033 2002-08-14  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1034 
 1035 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1036 	* generic/tclObj.c: (code cleanup) factored the parts in the macros
 1037 	TclNewObj() / TclDecrRefCount() into a common part for all
 1038 	memory allocators and two new macros TclAllocObjStorage() /
 1039 	TclFreeObjStorage() that are specific to each allocator and fully
 1040 	describe the differences. Removed allocator-specific code from
 1041 	tclObj.c by using the macros.
 1042 
 1043 2002-08-12  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1044 
 1045 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c: fixing UMR in delete traces, [Bug 589863].
 1046 
 1047 2002-08-08  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 1048 
 1049 	* tools/man2help.tcl: Fixed $argv handling bug where if -bitmap wasn't
 1050 	specified $argc was off by one.
 1051 
 1052 2002-08-08  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1053 
 1054 	* tests/uplevel.test: added 6.1 to test [uplevel] with shadowed
 1055 	commands [Bug 524383]
 1056 
 1057 	* tests/subst.test: added 5.8-10 as further tests for [Bug 495207]
 1058 
 1059 2002-08-08  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1060 
 1061 	* tests/README: Noted removal of defs.tcl.
 1062 
 1063 2002-08-08  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 1064 
 1065 	* doc/lsearch.n: corrected lsearch docs to use -inline in examples.
 1066 
 1067 	*** 8.4b2 TAGGED FOR RELEASE ***
 1068 
 1069 	* tests/fCmd.test:
 1070 	* tests/unixFCmd.test: updated tests for new link copy behavior.
 1071 	* generic/tclFCmd.c (CopyRenameOneFile): changed the behavior to
 1072 	follow links to endpoints and copy that file/directory instead of just
 1073 	copying the surface link. This means that trying to copy a link that
 1074 	has no endpoint (danling link) is an error. [Patch 591647] (darley)
 1075 	(CopyRenameOneFile): this is currently disabled by default until
 1076 	further issues with such behavior (like relative links) can be
 1077 	handled correctly.
 1078 
 1079 	* tests/README: slight wording improvements
 1080 
 1081 2002-08-07  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1082 
 1083 	* docs/BoolObj.3: added description of valid string reps for a
 1084 	boolean object. [Bug 584794]
 1085 	* generic/tclObj.c: optimised Tcl_GetBooleanFromObj and
 1086 	SetBooleanFromAny to avoid parsing the string rep when it can be
 1087 	avoided. [Bugs 584650, 472576]
 1088 
 1089 2002-08-07  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1090 
 1091 	* generic/tclCompile.h:
 1092 	* generic/tclObj.c: making tclCmdNameType static ([Bug 584567], Don
 1093 	Porter).
 1094 
 1095 2002-08-07  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1096 
 1097 	* generic/tclObj.c (Tcl_NewObj): added conditional code for
 1098 	USE_THREAD_ALLOC; objects allocated through Tcl_NewObj() were
 1099 	otherwise being leaked. [Bug 587488] reported by Sven Sass.
 1100 
 1101 2002-08-06  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 1102 
 1103 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 1104 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c: Added stubs and implementations for
 1105 	non-threaded build for the tclUnixThrd.c procs TclpReaddir,
 1106 	TclpLocaltime, TclpGmtime and TclpInetNtoa. Fixes link errors in
 1107 	stubbed & threaded extensions that include tclUnixPort.h and use any
 1108 	of the procs readdir, localtime, gmtime or inet_ntoa (e.g. TclX 8.4)
 1109 	[Bug 589526]
 1110 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h:
 1111 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: Regen.
 1112 
 1113 2002-08-05  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1114 
 1115 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	The setup and cleanup scripts are now
 1116 	* library/tcltest/pkgIndex.tcl:	skipped when a test is skipped, fixing
 1117 	* tests/tcltest.test:		[Bug 589859]. Test for bug added, and
 1118 	corrected tcltest package bumped to version 2.2.
 1119 
 1120 	* generic/tcl.decls:	Restored Tcl_Concat to return (char *). Like
 1121 	* generic/tclDecls.h:	Tcl_Merge, it transfers ownership of a dynamic
 1122 	* generic/tclUtil.c:	allocated string to the caller.
 1123 
 1124 2002-08-04  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1125 
 1126 	* doc/CmdCmplt.3:	Applied Patch 585105 to fully CONST-ify all
 1127 	* doc/Concat.3:		remaining public interfaces of Tcl. Notably,
 1128 	* doc/CrtCommand.3:	the parser no longer writes on the string it
 1129 	* doc/CrtSlave.3:	is parsing, so it is no longer necessary for
 1130 	* doc/CrtTrace.3:	Tcl_Eval() to be given a writable string. Also
 1131 	* doc/Eval.3:		the refactoring of the Tcl_*Var* routines by
 1132 	* doc/ExprLong.3:	by Miguel Sofer is included, so that the
 1133 	* doc/LinkVar.3:	"part1" argument for them no longer needs to
 1134 	* doc/ParseCmd.3:	be writable either.
 1135 	* doc/SetVar.3:
 1136 	* doc/TraceVar.3:
 1137 	* doc/UpVar.3:		Compatibility support has been enhanced so
 1138 	* generic/tcl.decls:	that a #define of USE_NON_CONST will remove
 1139 	* generic/tcl.h:	all possible source incompatibilities with the
 1140 	* generic/tclBasic.c:	8.3 version of the header file(s). The new
 1141 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:	#define of USE_COMPAT_CONST now does what
 1142 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c:USE_NON_CONST used to do -- disable only those
 1143 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c:new CONST's that introduce irreconcilable
 1144 	* generic/tclCompile.c:	incompatibilities.
 1145 	* generic/tclCompile.h:
 1146 	* generic/tclDecls.h:	Several bugs are also fixed by this patch.
 1147 	* generic/tclEnv.c:	[Bugs 584051,580433] [Patches 585105,582429]

 1169 2002-08-01  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1170 
 1171 	* generic/tclExecute.c: bugfix (reading freed memory). Testsuite
 1172 	passed on linux/i386, compile-13.1 hung on linux/alpha.
 1173 
 1174 2002-08-01  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1175 
 1176 	* generic/tclExecute.c: added a reference count for the complete
 1177 	execution stack, instead of Tcl_Preserve/Tcl_Release.
 1178 
 1179 2002-08-01  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1180 
 1181 	* generic/tclCkalloc.c (TclFinalizeMemorySubsystem): Don't lock the
 1182 	ckalloc mutex before invoking the Tcl_DumpActiveMemory function since
 1183 	it also locks the same mutex. This code is only executed when "memory
 1184 	onexit filename" has been executed and Tcl is compiled with
 1185 	-DTCL_MEM_DEBUG.
 1186 
 1187 2002-08-01  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 1188 
 1189 	* win/tclWinPort.h: The windows headers don't provide socklen_t, so we
 1190 	have to do it.
 1191 
 1192 2002-07-31  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1193 
 1194 	* generic/tclInt.h (USE_THREAD_ALLOC): for unshared objects,
 1195 	TclDecrRefCount now frees the internal rep before the string rep -
 1196 	just like the non-macro Tcl_DecrRefCount/TclFreeObj [Bug 524802]. For
 1197 	the other allocators the fix was done on 2002-03-06.
 1198 
 1199 2002-07-31  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1200 
 1201 	* generic/tclInterp.c: signed/unsigned comparison warning fixed
 1202 	(Vince Darley).
 1203 
 1204 2002-07-31  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1205 
 1206 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_BUGGY_STRTOD): Enabled caching of test results.
 1207 
 1208 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_BUGGY_STRTOD): Solaris 2.8 still has a buggy
 1209 	strtod() implementation; make sure we detect it.
 1210 
 1211 	* tests/expr.test (expr-22.*): Marked as non-portable because it seems
 1212 	that these tests have an annoying tendency to fail in unexpected ways.
 1213 	[Bugs 584825, 584950, 585986]
 1214 
 1215 2002-07-30  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 1216 
 1217 	* tests/io.test:
 1218 	* generic/tclIO.c (WriteChars): Added flag to break out of loop if
 1219 	nothing of the input is consumed at all, to prevent infinite looping
 1220 	of called with a non-UTF-8 string. Fixes Bug 584603 (partially). Added
 1221 	new test "io-60.1". Might need additional changes to Tcl_Main so that
 1222 	unprintable results are printed as binary data.
 1223 
 1224 2002-07-29  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1225 
 1226 	* unix/Makefile.in: Use CC_SEARCH_FLAGS instead of LD_SEARCH_FLAGS
 1227 	when linking with ${CC}.
 1228 	* unix/configure: Regen.
 1229 	* unix/configure.in: Don't subst CC_SEARCH_FLAGS or LD_SEARCH_FLAGS
 1230 	since this is now done in tcl.m4.
 1231 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Document and set CC_SEARCH_FLAGS
 1232 	whenever LD_SEARCH_FLAGS is set. [Patch 588290]
 1233 
 1234 2002-07-29  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 1235 
 1236 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_SERIAL_PORT): Fixed detection for cases when
 1237                                         configure's stdin is not a tty.
 1238 
 1239 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:
 1240 	* generic/tclIOSock.c:          Changed size_t to socklen_t in
 1241                                         socket-related function calls.
 1242 
 1243 	* unix/configure.in:            Added test and fallback definition
 1244                                         for socklen_t.
 1245 
 1246 	* unix/configure:               generated.
 1247 
 1248 2002-07-29  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1249 
 1250 	* generic/tclObj.c: fixed a comment
 1251 
 1252 	* generic/tcl.h:
 1253 	* generic/tclBasic.c:
 1254 	* generic/tclInterp.c: added the new flag TCL_EVAL_INVOKE to the
 1255 	interface of the Tcl_Eval* functions, removing the
 1256 	TCL_EVAL_NO_TRACEBACK added yesterday: alias invocations not only
 1257 	require no tracebacks, but also look up the command name in the global
 1258 	scope - see new test interp-9.4
 1259 	* tests/interp.test: added 9.3 to test for safety of aliases to hidden
 1260 	commands, 9.4 to test for correct command lookup scope.
 1261 
 1262 2002-07-29  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1263 
 1264 	* generic/regc_locale.c (cclass): [[:xdigit:]] is only a defined
 1265 	concept on western characters, so should not allow any unicode digit,
 1266 	and hence number of ranges in [[:xdigit:]] is fixed.
 1267 	* tests/reg.test: Added test to detect the bug.
 1268 	* generic/regc_cvec.c (newcvec): Corrected initial size value in
 1269 	character vector structure. [Bug 578363] Many thanks to
 1270 	pvgoran@users.sf.net for tracking this down.
 1271 
 1272 2002-07-28  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1273 
 1274 	* generic/tcl.h:
 1275 	* generic/tclBasic.c: added the new flag TCL_EVAL_NO_TRACEBACK to the
 1276 	interface of the Tcl_Eval* functions. Modified the error message for
 1277 	too many nested evaluations.
 1278 	* generic/tclInterp.h: changed the Alias struct to be of variable
 1279 	length and store the prefix arguments directly (instead of a pointer
 1280 	to a Tcl_Obj list). Made AliasObjCmd call Tcl_EvalObjv instead of
 1281 	TclObjInvoke - thus making aliases trigger execution traces [Bug
 1282 	582522].
 1283 	* tests/interp.test:
 1284 	* tests/stack.test: adapted to the new error message.
 1285 	* tests/trace.test: added tests for aliases firing the exec traces.
 1286 
 1287 2002-07-27  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1288 
 1289 	* unix/Makefile.in: Revert fix for Tcl bug 529801 since it was
 1290 	incorrect and broke the build on other systems. Fix [Bug 587299]. Add
 1291 	MAJOR_VERSION, MINOR_VERSION, PATCH_LEVEL, SHLIB_LD_FLAGS,
 1292 	SHLIB_LD_LIBS, CC_SEARCH_FLAGS, LD_SEARCH_FLAGS, and LIB_FILE
 1293 	variables to support more generic library build/install rules.
 1294 	* unix/configure: Regen.
 1295 	* unix/configure.in: Move AC_PROG_RANLIB into tcl.m4. Move shared
 1296 	build test and setting of MAKE_LIB and MAKE_STUB_LIB into tcl.m4. Move
 1297 	subst of a number of variables into tcl.m4 where they are defined.
 1298 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_ENABLE_SYMBOLS, SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Subst vars where
 1299 	they are defined. Add MAKE_LIB, MAKE_STUB_LIB, INSTALL_LIB, and
 1300 	INSTALL_STUB_LIB rules to deal with the ugly details of running ranlib
 1301 	on static libs at build and install time. Replace TCL_SHLIB_LD_EXTRAS
 1302 	with SHLIB_LD_FLAGS and use it when building a shared library.
 1303 	* unix/tclConfig.sh.in: Add TCL_CC_SEARCH_FLAGS.
 1304 
 1305 2002-07-26  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1306 
 1307 	* generic/tclExecute.c: fixed Tcl_Obj leak in code corresponding to
 1308 	the macro NEXT_INST_V(x, 0, 1) [Bug 587495].
 1309 
 1310 2002-07-26  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1311 
 1312 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclObjLookupVar): leak fix and improved comments.
 1313 
 1314 2002-07-26  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 1315 
 1316 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclLookupVar): removed early returns that
 1317 	prevented the parens from being restored. Also removed goto label as
 1318 	it was not necessary.
 1319 
 1320 2002-07-24  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1321 
 1322 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 1323 	* tests/expr-old.test: fix for erroneous error messages in [expr],
 1324 	[Bug 587140] reported by Martin Lemburg.
 1325 
 1326 2002-07-25  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 1327 
 1328 	* generic/tclProc.c: fix for [Tk Bug 219218] "error handling with
 1329 	bgerror in Tk"
 1330 
 1331 2002-07-24  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1332 
 1333 	* generic/tclExecute.c: restoring full TCL_COMPILE_DEBUG
 1334 	functionality.
 1335 
 1336 2002-07-24  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1337 
 1338 	* tests/unixInit.test: relaxed unixInit-3.1 to accept iso8859-15 as a
 1339 	valid C encoding. [Bug 575336]
 1340 
 1341 2002-07-24  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1342 
 1343 	* generic/tclExecute.c: restoring the tcl_traceCompile functionality
 1344 	while I repair tcl_traceExec. The core now compiles and runs also
 1345 	under TCL_COMPILE_DEBUG, but execution in the bytecode engine can
 1346 	still not be traced.
 1347 
 1348 2002-07-24  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 1349 
 1350 	* unix/Makefile.in:
 1351 	* unix/configure.in: corrected fix for [Bug 529801]: ranlib only
 1352 	needed for static builds on Mac OS X.
 1353 	* unix/configure: Regen.
 1354 	* unix/tclLoadDyld.c: fixed small bugs introduced by Vince,
 1355 	implemented library unloading correctly (needs OS X 10.2).
 1356 
 1357 2002-07-23  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 1358 
 1359 	* doc/OpenFileChnl.3: (Updates from Larry Virden)
 1360 	* doc/open.n:
 1361 	* doc/tclsh.1: Fix section numbers in Unix man page references.
 1362 	* doc/lset.n:  In EXAMPLES section, include command to set the initial
 1363 	value used in subsequent examples.
 1364 	* doc/http.n: Package version updated to 2.4.
 1365 
 1366 2002-07-23  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1367 
 1368 	* unix/configure: Regen.
 1369 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Enable 64 bit compilation when using
 1370 	the native compiler on a 64 bit version of IRIX. [Bug 219220]
 1371 
 1372 2002-07-23  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1373 
 1374 	* unix/Makefile.in: Combine ranlib tests and avoid printing unless
 1375 	ranlib is actually run.
 1376 
 1377 2002-07-23  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1378 
 1379 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_PATH_X): Set XINCLUDES to "" instead of "# no
 1380 	special path needed" or "# no include files found" when x headers
 1381 	cannot be located.
 1382 
 1383 2002-07-22  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1384 
 1385 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: made tclNativeFilesystem static (since 07-19
 1386 	changes removed its usage elsewhere), and added comments about its
 1387 	usage.
 1388 	* generic/tclLoad.c:
 1389 	* generic/tcl.h:
 1390 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 1391 	* doc/FileSystem.3: converted last load-related ClientData parameter
 1392 	to Tcl_LoadHandle opaque structure, removing a couple of casts in the
 1393 	process.
 1394 
 1395 	* generic/tclInt.h: removed tclNativeFilesystem declaration since it
 1396 	is now static again.
 1397 
 1398 2002-07-22  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1399 
 1400 	* tests/expr.test (expr-22.*): Added tests to help detect the
 1401 	corrected handling.
 1402 	* generic/tclExecute.c (IllegalExprOperandType): Improved error
 1403 	message generated when attempting to manipulate Inf and NaN values.
 1404 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c (GetLexeme): Allowed parser to recognise
 1405 	'Inf' as a floating-point number. [Bug 218000]
 1406 
 1407 2002-07-21  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1408 
 1409 	* tclIOUtil.c: Silence compiler warning. [Bug 584408].
 1410 
 1411 2002-07-19  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1412 
 1413 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fix to GetFilesystemRecord
 1414 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 1415 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c: fix to subtle problem with links shown up by
 1416 	latest tclkit builds.
 1417 
 1418 2002-07-19  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1419 
 1420 	* unix/configure:
 1421 	* unix/configure.in:
 1422 	* win/configure:
 1423 	* win/configure.in: Add AC_PREREQ(2.13) in an attempt to make it more
 1424 	clear that the configure scripts must be generated with autoconf
 1425 	version 2.13. [Bug 583573]
 1426 
 1427 2002-07-19  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1428 
 1429 	* unix/Makefile.in: fix to build on MacOS X [Bug 529801], bug report
 1430 	and fix from jcw.
 1431 
 1432 2002-07-19  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1433 
 1434 	* win/tclWinSerial.c (no_timeout): Made this variable static.
 1435 
 1436 	* generic/tclExecute.c, generic/tclCompile.c, generic/tclBasic.c:
 1437 	* generic/tclCompile.h (builtinFuncTable, instructionTable): Added
 1438 	prefix to these symbols because they are visible outside the Tcl
 1439 	library.
 1440 
 1441 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c (operatorTable):
 1442 	* unix/tclUnixTime.c (tmKey):
 1443 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (theFilesystemEpoch, filesystemWantToModify,
 1444 	filesystemIteratorsInProgress, filesystemOkToModify): Made these
 1445 	variables static.
 1446 
 1447 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:		Renamed nativeFilesystem to
 1448 	* win/tclWinFile.c:		tclNativeFilesystem and declared
 1449 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:		it properly in tclInt.h
 1450 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1451 
 1452 	* generic/tclUtf.c (totalBytes): Made this array static and const.
 1453 
 1454 	* generic/tclParse.c (typeTable): Made this array static and const.
 1455 	(Tcl_ParseBraces): Simplified error handling case so that scans are
 1456 	only performed when needed, and flags are simpler too.
 1457 
 1458 	* license.terms: Added AS to list of copyright holders; it's only
 1459 	fair for the current gatekeepers to be listed here!
 1460 
 1461 	* tests/cmdMZ.test: Renamed constraint for clarity. [Bug 583427]
 1462 	Added tests for the [time] command, which was previously only
 1463 	indirectly tested!
 1464 
 1465 2002-07-18  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1466 
 1467 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1468 	* generic/tcl.h:
 1469 	* */*Load*.c: added comments on changes of 07/17 and replaced
 1470 	clientData with Tcl_LoadHandle in all locations.
 1471 
 1472 	* generic/tclFCmd.c:
 1473 	* tests/fileSystem.test: fixed a 'knownBug' with 'file attributes ""'
 1474 	* tests/winFCmd.test:
 1475 	* tests/winPipe.test:
 1476 	* tests/fCmd.test:
 1477 	* tessts/winFile.test: added 'pcOnly' constraint to some tests to make
 1478 	for more useful 'tests skipped' log from running all tests on
 1479 	non-Windows platforms.
 1480 
 1481 2002-07-17  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1482 
 1483 	* generic/tclBasic.c (CallCommandTraces): delete traces now receive
 1484 	the FQ old name of the command. [Bug 582532] (Don Porter)
 1485 
 1486 2002-07-18  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1487 
 1488 	* tests/ioUtil.test: added constraints to 1.4,2.4 so they don't run
 1489 	outside of tcltest. [Bugs 583276, 583277]
 1490 
 1491 2002-07-17  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1492 
 1493 	* generic/tclVar.c (DupParsedVarName): nasty bug fixed, reported by
 1494 	Vince Darley.
 1495 
 1496 2002-07-17  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1497 
 1498 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclPtrIncrVar): missing CONST in declarations,
 1499 	inconsistent with tclInt.h. Thanks to Vince Darley for reporting, boo
 1500 	to gcc for not complaining.
 1501 
 1502 2002-07-17  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1503 
 1504 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1505 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 1506 	* generic/tclLoadNone.c:
 1507 	* unix/tclLoadAout.c:
 1508 	* unix/tclLoadDl.c:
 1509 	* unix/tclLoadDld.c:
 1510 	* unix/tclLoadDyld.c:
 1511 	* unix/tclLoadNext.c:
 1512 	* unix/tclLoadOSF.c:
 1513 	* unix/tclLoadShl.c:
 1514 	* mac/tclMacLoad.c:
 1515 	* win/tclWinLoad.c: modified to move more functionality to the generic
 1516 	code and avoid duplication. Partial replacement of internal uses of
 1517 	clientData with opaque Tcl_LoadHandle. A little further work still
 1518 	needed, but significant changes are done.
 1519 
 1520 2002-07-17  D. Richard Hipp    <drh@hwaci.com>
 1521 
 1522 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl: fix a comment that was causing problems
 1523 	for programs (ex: mktclapp) that embed the initialization scripts in
 1524 	strings.
 1525 
 1526 2002-07-17  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1527 
 1528 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 1529 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 1530 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 1531 	* generic/tclVar.c: removing the now redundant functions to access
 1532 	indexed variables: Tcl(Get|Set|Incr)IndexedScalar() and
 1533 	Tcl(Get|Set|Incr)ElementOfIndexedArray().
 1534 
 1535 2002-07-17  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1536 
 1537 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Minor fixes to make this
 1538 	file compile with SunPro CC...
 1539 
 1540 2002-07-17  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1541 
 1542 	* generic/tclExecute.c: modified to do variable lookup explicitly, and
 1543 	then either inlining the variable access or else calling the new
 1544 	TclPtr(Set|Get|Incr)Var functions in tclVar.c
 1545 	* generic/tclInt.h: declare some functions previously local to
 1546 	tclVar.c for usage by TEBC.
 1547 	* generic/tclVar.c: removed local declarations; moved all special
 1548 	accessor functions for indexed variables to the end of the file -
 1549 	they are unused and ready for removal, but left there for the time
 1550 	being as they are in the internal stubs table.
 1551 
 1552 	** WARNING FOR BYTECODE MAINTAINERS **
 1553 	TCL_COMPILE_DEBUG is currently not functional; will be fixed ASAP.
 1554 
 1555 2002-07-16  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1556 
 1557 	* unix/Makefile.in:
 1558 	* win/Makefile.in: Add a more descriptive warning in the event `make
 1559 	genstubs` needs to be rerun.
 1560 
 1561 2002-07-16  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1562 
 1563 	* unix/Makefile.in: Use dltest.marker file to keep track of when the
 1564 	dltest package is up to date. This fixes [Bug 575768] since tcltest is
 1565 	no longer linked every time.
 1566 	* unix/dltest/Makefile.in: Create ../dltest.marker after a successful
 1567 	`make all` run in dltest.
 1568 
 1569 2002-07-16  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1570 
 1571 	* unix/configure: Regen.
 1572 	* unix/configure.in: Remove useless subst of TCL_BIN_DIR.
 1573 
 1574 2002-07-15  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1575 
 1576 	* generic/tclVar.c: inaccurate comment fixed
 1577 
 1578 2002-07-15  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1579 
 1580 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_AddObjErrorInfo):
 1581 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclUpdateReturnInfo):
 1582 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1583 	* generic/tclProc.c:
 1584 	Added two Tcl_Obj to the ExecEnv structure to hold the fully qualified
 1585 	names "::errorInfo" and "::errorCode" to cache the addresses of the
 1586 	corresponding variables. The two most frequent setters of these
 1587 	variables now profit from the new variable name caching.
 1588 
 1589 2002-07-15  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1590 
 1591 	* generic/tclVar.c: refactorisation to reuse already looked-up Var
 1592 	pointers; definition of three new Tcl_Obj types to cache variable name
 1593 	parsing and lookup for later reuse; modification of internal functions
 1594 	to profit from the caching.
 1595 
 1596 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 1597 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1598 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 1599 	* generic/tclNamesp.c: adding CONST qualifiers to variable names
 1600 	passed to Tcl_FindNamespaceVar and to variable resolvers; adding CONST
 1601 	qualifier to the 'msg' argument to TclLookupVar. Needed to avoid code
 1602 	duplication in the new tclVar.c code.
 1603 
 1604 	* tests/set-old.test:
 1605 	* tests/var.test: slight modification of error messages due to the
 1606 	modifications in the tclVar.c code.
 1607 
 1608 2002-07-15  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1609 
 1610 	* tests/unixInit.test:	Improved constraints to protect /tmp. [Bug
 1611 	581403]
 1612 
 1613 2002-07-15  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1614 
 1615 	* tests/winFCmd.test: renamed 'win2000' and 'notWin2000' to more
 1616 	appropriate constraint names.
 1617 	* win/tclWinFile.c: updated comments to reflect 07-11 changes.
 1618 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c: made ConvertFileNameFormat static again, since no
 1619 	longer used in tclWinFile.c
 1620 	* mac/tclMacFile.c: completed TclpObjLink implementation which was
 1621 	previously lacking.
 1622 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: comment cleanup and code speedup.
 1623 
 1624 2002-07-14  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1625 
 1626 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Removed declarations that duplicated entries
 1627 	in the (internal) stub table.
 1628 
 1629 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:  Corrected errors in handling of
 1630 	configuration options -constraints and -limitconstraints.
 1631 
 1632 	* README:		Bumped HEAD to version 8.4b2 so we can
 1633 	* generic/tcl.h:	distinguish it from the 8.4b1 release.
 1634 	* tools/tcl.wse.in:
 1635 	* unix/configure*:
 1636 	* unix/tcl.spec:
 1637 	* win/README.binary:
 1638 	* win/configure*:
 1639 
 1640 2002-07-11  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1641 
 1642 	* doc/file.n:
 1643 	* win/tclWinFile.c: on Win 95/98/ME the long form of the path is used
 1644 	as a normalized form. This is required because short forms are not a
 1645 	robust representation. The file normalization function has been sped
 1646 	up, but more performance gains might be possible, if speed is still an
 1647 	issue on these platforms.
 1648 
 1649 2002-07-11  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1650 
 1651 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Corrected reaction to existing but
 1652 	false ::tcl_interactive.
 1653 
 1654 	* doc/Hash.3: Overlooked CONST documentation update.
 1655 
 1656 2002-07-11  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1657 
 1658 	* generic/tclCkalloc.c: ckalloc() and friends take the block size as
 1659 	an unsigned, so we should use %ud when reporting it in fprintf() and
 1660 	panic().
 1661 
 1662 2002-07-11  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1663 
 1664 	* generic/tclCompile.c: now setting local vars undefined at compile
 1665 	time, instead of waiting until the proc is initialized.
 1666 	* generic/tclProc.c: use macro TclSetVarUndefined instead of directly
 1667 	setting the flag.
 1668 
 1669 2002-07-11  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1670 
 1671 	* tests/cmdAH.test: [file attr -perm] is Unix-only, so add [catch]
 1672 	when not inside a suitably-protected test.
 1673 
 1674 2002-07-10  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1675 
 1676 	* tests/unixFCmd.test, tests/fileName.test:
 1677 	* tests/fCmd.test: Removed [exec] of Unix utilities that have
 1678 	equivalents in standard Tcl. [Bug 579268] Also simplified some of
 1679 	unixFCmd.test while I was at it.
 1680 
 1681 2002-07-10  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1682 
 1683 	* tests/tcltest.test:  Greatly reduced the number of [exec]s, using
 1684 	slave interps instead.
 1685 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:  Fixed bug uncovered in the conversion
 1686 	where a message was written to stdout instead of [outputChannel].
 1687 
 1688 	* tests/basic.test:	Cleaned up, constrained, and reduced the
 1689 	* tests/compile.test:	amount of [exec] usage in the test suite.
 1690 	* tests/encoding.test:
 1691 	* tests/env.test:
 1692 	* tests/event.test:
 1693 	* tests/exec.test:
 1694 	* tests/io.test:
 1695 	* tests/ioCmd.test:
 1696 	* tests/regexp.test:
 1697 	* tests/regexpComp.test:
 1698 	* tests/socket.test:
 1699 	* tests/tcltest.test:
 1700 	* tests/unixInit.test:
 1701 	* tests/winDde.test:
 1702 	* tests/winPipe.test:
 1703 
 1704 2002-07-10  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1705 
 1706 	* tests/cmdAH.test: Removed [exec] of Unix utilities. [Bug 579211]
 1707 
 1708 	* tests/expr.test: Added tests to make sure that this works.
 1709 	* generic/tclExecute.c (ExprCallMathFunc): Functions should also be
 1710 	able to return wide-ints. [Bug 579284]
 1711 
 1712 2002-07-08  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 1713 
 1714 	* tests/socket.test: Fixed [Bug 578164]. The original reason for the
 1715 	was a DNS outage while running the testsuite. Changed [info hostname]
 1716 	to 127.0.0.1 to bypass DNS, knowing that we operate on the local host.
 1717 
 1718 2002-07-08  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1719 
 1720 	* doc/tcltest.n:		Fixed incompatibility in [viewFile].
 1721 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Corrected docs. Bumped to 2.2.1.
 1722 	* library/tcltest/pkgIndex.tcl: [Bug 578163]
 1723 
 1724 2002-07-08  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1725 
 1726 	* tests/cmdAH.test:
 1727 	* tests/fCmd.test:
 1728 	* tests/fileName.test: tests which rely on 'file link' need a
 1729 	constraint so they don't run on older Windows OS. [Bug 578158]
 1730 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 1731 	* generic/tcl.h:
 1732 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1733 	* generic/tclTest.c:
 1734 	* mac/tclMacChan.c:
 1735 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c:
 1736 	* win/tclWinChan.c:
 1737 	* doc/FileSystem.3: cleaned up internal handling of
 1738 	Tcl_FSOpenFileChannel to remove duplicate code, and make writing
 1739 	external vfs's clearer and easier. No functionality change. Also
 1740 	clarify that objects with refCount zero should not be passed in to the
 1741 	Tcl_FS API, and prevent segfaults from occuring on such user errors.
 1742 	[Bug 578617]
 1743 
 1744 2002-07-06  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1745 
 1746 	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test:  Constrained tests of [load] package indexing
 1747 	to those platforms where the testing shared libraries have been built.
 1748 	[Bug 578166]
 1749 
 1750 2002-07-05  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1751 
 1752 	* changes: added recent changes
 1753 
 1754 2002-07-05  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 1755 
 1756 	* generic/tclClock.c (FormatClock): Convert the format string to UTF8
 1757 	before calling TclpStrftime, so that non-ASCII characters don't get
 1758 	mangled when the result string is being converted back.
 1759 	* tests/clock.test: Added a test for that.
 1760 
 1761 2002-07-05  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1762 
 1763 	* unix/Makefile.in (ro-test,ddd,GDB,DDD): Created new targets to
 1764 	allow running the test suite with a read-only current directory,
 1765 	running under ddd instead of gdb, and factored out some executable
 1766 	names for broken sites (like mine) where gdb and ddd are installed
 1767 	with non-standard names...
 1768 
 1769 	* tests/httpold.test: Altered test names to httpold-* to avoid clashes
 1770 	with http.test, and stopped tests from failing when the current
 1771 	directory is not writable...
 1772 
 1773 	* tests/event.test:		Stop these tests from failing when the
 1774 	* tests/ioUtil.test:		current directory is not writable...
 1775 	* tests/regexp.test:
 1776 	* tests/regexpComp.test:
 1777 	* tests/source.test:
 1778 	* tests/unixFile.test:
 1779 	* tests/unixNotfy.test:
 1780 
 1781 	* tests/unixFCmd.test:		Trying to make these test-files not
 1782 	* tests/macFCmd.test:		bomb out with an error when the
 1783 	* tests/http.test:		current directory is not writable...
 1784 	* tests/fileName.test:
 1785 	* tests/env.test:

 1790 
 1791 2002-07-04  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1792 
 1793 	* tests/cmdMZ.test (cmdMZ-1.4):
 1794 	* tests/cmdAH.test: More fixing of writable-current-dir assumption.
 1795 	[Bug 575824]
 1796 
 1797 2002-07-04  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1798 
 1799 	* tests/basic.test: Same issue as below; fixed [Bug 575817]
 1800 
 1801 2002-07-04  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 1802 
 1803 	* tests/socket.test:
 1804 	* tests/winPipe.test:
 1805 	* tests/pid.test: Fixed [Bug 575848]. See below for a description the
 1806 	general problem.
 1807 
 1808 	* All the bugs below are instances of the same problem: The testsuite
 1809 	assumes [pwd] = [temporaryDirectory] and writable.
 1810 
 1811 	* tests/iogt.test: Fixed [Bug 575860].
 1812 	* tests/io.test:   Fixed [Bug 575862].
 1813 	* tests/exec.test:
 1814 	* tests/ioCmd.test: Fixed [Bug 575836].
 1815 
 1816 2002-07-03  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1817 
 1818 	* tests/pkg1/direct1.tcl: removed
 1819 	* tests/pkg1/pkgIndex.tcl: removed
 1820 	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test:  Imported auxilliary files from tests/pkg1
 1821 	into the test file pkgMkIndex.test itself. Formatting fixes.
 1822 
 1823 	* unix/Makefile.in: removed tests/pkg/* from `make dist`
 1824 
 1825 	* tests/pkg/circ1.tcl: removed
 1826 	* tests/pkg/circ2.tcl: removed
 1827 	* tests/pkg/circ3.tcl: removed

 1839 	* tests/pkg/spacename.tcl: removed
 1840 	* tests/pkg/std.tcl: removed
 1841 	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test: Fixed [Bug 575857] where this test file
 1842 	expected to be able to write to [file join [testsDirectory] pkg]. Part
 1843 	of the fix was to import several auxilliary files into the test file
 1844 	itself.
 1845 
 1846 	* tests/main.test:	Cheap fix for [Bugs 575851, 575858]. Avoid
 1847 	* tests/tcltest.test:	non-writable . by [cd [temporaryDirectory]].
 1848 
 1849 	* library/auto.tcl: Fix [tcl_findLibrary] to be sure it sets $varName
 1850 	only if a successful library script is found. [Bug 577033]
 1851 
 1852 2002-07-03  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1853 
 1854 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileCatchCmd): return
 1855 	TCL_OUT_LINE_COMPILE instead of TCL_ERROR: let the failure happen at
 1856 	runtime so that it can be caught [Bug 577015].
 1857 
 1858 2002-07-02  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 1859 
 1860 	* doc/tcltest.n: Markup fixes, spellcheck.
 1861 
 1862 2002-07-02  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1863 
 1864 	* doc/tcltest.n: more refinements of the documentation.
 1865 
 1866 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Added trace to be sure the stdio
 1867 	constraint is updated whenever the [interpreter] changes.
 1868 
 1869 	* doc/tcltest.n:		Reverted [makeFile] and [viewFile] to
 1870 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	their former behavior, and documented
 1871 	* tests/cmdAH.test:		it. Corrected misspelling of hook
 1872 	* tests/event.test:		procedure. Restored tests.
 1873 	* tests/http.test:
 1874 	* tests/io.test:
 1875 
 1876 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Simplified logic of [GetMatchingFiles]
 1877 	and [GetMatchingDirectories], removing special case processing.
 1878 
 1879 	* doc/tcltest.n: More documentation updates. Reference sections are
 1880 	complete. Only examples need adding.
 1881 
 1882 2002-07-02  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1883 
 1884 	* tests/fCmd.test:
 1885 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c: clearer error msgs for 'file link', as per the
 1886 	man page.
 1887 
 1888 2002-07-01  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>

 1925 
 1926 2002-07-01  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1927 
 1928 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Made Solaris use gcc for linking
 1929 	when building with gcc to resolve problems with undefined symbols
 1930 	being present when tcl library used with non-gcc linker at later
 1931 	stage. Symbols were compiler-generated, so it is the compiler's
 1932 	business to define them. [Bug 541181]
 1933 
 1934 2002-07-01  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1935 
 1936 	* doc/tcltest.n: more work in progress updating tcltest docs.
 1937 
 1938 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Change [configure -match] to stop
 1939 	treating an empty list as a list of the single pattern "*". Changed
 1940 	the default value to [list *] so default operation remains the same.
 1941 
 1942 	* tests/pkg/samename.tcl: restored. needed by pkgMkIndex.test.
 1943 
 1944 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: restored writeability testing of
 1945 	-tmpdir, augmented by a special exception for the deafault value.
 1946 
 1947 2002-07-01  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1948 
 1949 	* doc/concat.n: Documented the *real* behaviour of [concat]!
 1950 
 1951 2002-06-30  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1952 
 1953 	* doc/tcltest.n: more work in progress updating tcltest docs.
 1954 
 1955 	* tests/README:		Updated the instructions on running and
 1956 	* tests/cmdMZ.test:	adding to the test suite. Also updated
 1957 	* tests/encoding.test:	several tests, mostly to correctly create
 1958 	* tests/fCmd.test:	and destroy any temporary files in the
 1959 	* tests/info.test:	[temporaryDirectory] of tcltest.
 1960 	* tests/interp.test:
 1961 
 1962 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Stopped checking for writeability of
 1963 	-tmpdir value because no default directory can be guaranteed to be
 1964 	writeable.
 1965 
 1966 	* tests/autoMkindex.tcl: removed.
 1967 	* tests/pkg/samename.tcl: removed.
 1968 	* tests/pkg/magicchar.tcl: removed.
 1969 	* tests/pkg/magicchar2.tcl: removed.
 1970 	* tests/autoMkindex.test: Updated auto_mkIndex tests to use [makeFile]
 1971 	and [removeFile] so tests are done in [temporaryDirecotry] where write
 1972 	access is guaranteed.
 1973 
 1974 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Fixed [makeFile] and [viewFile] to
 1975 	* tests/cmdAH.test:		accurately reflect a file's contents.
 1976 	* tests/event.test:		Updated tests that depended on buggy
 1977 	* tests/http.test:		behavior. Also added warning messages
 1978 	* tests/io.test:		to "-debug 1" operations to debug test
 1979 	* tests/iogt.test:		calls to (make|remove)(File|Directory)
 1980 
 1981 	* unix/mkLinks: `make mklinks` on 6-27 commits.
 1982 
 1983 2002-06-28  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 1984 
 1985 	* generic/tclCompile.h: modified the macro TclEmitPush to not call its

 1987 	reported by Peter Spjuth.

 1989 2002-06-28  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1990

 1993 	not reliable, and disagreed with docs! Thanks to Hemang Lavana. [Bug
 1994 	575150]
 1995 
 1996 2002-06-28  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 1997 
 1998 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c:	Renamed the Tcl_Platform* #defines to TclOS*
 1999 	* unix/tclUnixPipe.c:	because they are only used internally. Also
 2000 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:	stopped double-#def of TclOSlstat [Bug 566099,
 2001 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c:	post-rename]
 2002 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c:
 2003 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:
 2004 
 2005 	* doc/string.n: Improved documentation for [string last] along lines
 2006 	described in [Bug 574799] so it indicates that the supplied index
 2007 	marks the end of the search space.
 2008 
 2009 2002-06-27  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>

 2020 2002-06-26  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2021 
 2022 	* tests/fileSystem.test:
 2023 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fix to handling of empty paths "" which are not
 2024 	claimed by any filesystem [Bug 573758]. Ensure good error messages
 2025 	are given in all cases.
 2026 	* tests/cmdAH.test:
 2027 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c: fix to bug reported as part of [Patch 566669].
 2028 	Thanks to Taguchi, Takeshi for the report.
 2029 
 2030 2002-06-26  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 2031 
 2032 	* unix/tclUnixTime.c: Make [clock format] respect locale settings.
 2033 	* tests/clock.test:   [Bug 565880]. ***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
 2034 
 2035 2002-06-26  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2036 
 2037 	* doc/CrtInterp.3:
 2038 	* doc/StringObj.3: clarifications by Don Porter, [Bug 493995] and [Bug
 2039 	500930].
 2040 
 2041 2002-06-24  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2042 
 2043 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Corrected suppression of -verbose skip
 2044 	* tests/tcltest.test:		and start by [test -output]. Also
 2045 	corrected test suite errors exposed by corrected code. [Bug 564656]
 2046 
 2047 2002-06-25  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 2048 
 2049 	* unix/tcl.m4:       New macro SC_CONFIG_MANPAGES.
 2050 	* unix/configure.in: Added support for symlinks and compression when
 2051 	* unix/Makefile.in:  installing the manpages. [Patch 518052]
 2052 	* unix/mkLinks.tcl:  Default is still hardlinks and no compression.
 2053 
 2054 	* unix/mkLinks:      generated
 2055 	* unix/configure:
 2056 
 2057 	* unix/README:       Added documentation for the new features.
 2058 
 2059 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_PATH_TCLCONFIG): Replaced ${exec_prefix}/lib by
 2060 	${libdir}.
 2061 
 2062 2002-06-25  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2063 
 2064 	* generic/tclUtil.c (TclGetIntForIndex): Fix of critical [Bug 533364]
 2065 	generated when the index is bad and the result is a shared object. The
 2066 	T_ASTO(T_GOR, ...) idiom likely exists elsewhere though. Also removed
 2067 	some cruft that just complicated things to no advantage.
 2068 	(SetEndOffsetFromAny): Same fix, though this wasn't on the path
 2069 	excited by the bug.
 2070 
 2071 2002-06-24  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2072 
 2073 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Implementation of TIP 101. Adds abd
 2074 	* tests/parseOld.test:		exports a [configure] command from
 2075 	* tests/tcltest.test:		tcltest.
 2076 
 2077 2002-06-22  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2078 
 2079 	* changes: updated changes file for 8.4b1 release.
 2080 
 2081 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Corrections to tcltest and the Tcl
 2082 	* tests/basic.test:		test suite so that a test with options
 2083 	* tests/cmdInfo.test:		-constraints knownBug
 2084 	* tests/compile.test:		-limitConstraints 1 only tests the
 2085 	* tests/encoding.test:		knownBug tests. Mostly involves
 2086 	* tests/env.test:		replacing direct access to the
 2087 	* tests/event.test:		testConstraints array with calls to
 2088 	* tests/exec.test:		the testConstraint command (which
 2089 	* tests/execute.test:		requires tcltest version 2)

 2109 
 2110 2002-06-21  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 2111 
 2112 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c:
 2113 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c: LogSyntaxError() should reset the
 2114 	interpreter result [Bug 550142 "Tcl_ExprObj -> abort"]
 2115 
 2116 2002-06-21  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2117 
 2118 	* unix/Makefile.in:	Updated all package install directories
 2119 	* win/Makefile.in:	to match current Major.minor versions
 2120 	* win/makefile.bc:	of the packages. Added tcltest package
 2121 	* win/makefile.vc:	to installation on Windows.
 2122 
 2123 	* library/init.tcl:  Corrected comments and namespace style issues.
 2124 	Thanks to Bruce Stephens. [Bug 572025]
 2125 
 2126 2002-06-21  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2127 
 2128 	* tests/cmdAH.test:          Added TIP#99 implementation of 'file
 2129 	* tests/fCmd.test:           link'. Supports creation of symbolic and
 2130 	* tests/fileName.test:       hard links in the native filesystems and
 2131 	* tests/fileSystem.test:     in vfs's, when the individual filesystem
 2132 	* generic/tclTest.c:         supports the concept.
 2133 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c:
 2134 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 2135 	* generic/tcl.h:
 2136 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 2137 	* doc/FileSystem.3:
 2138 	* doc/file.n:
 2139 	* mac/tclMacFile.c:
 2140 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
 2141 	* win/tclWinFile.c: Also enhanced speed of 'file normalize' on
 2142 	Windows.
 2143 
 2144 2002-06-20  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2145 
 2146 	* generic/tclBasic.c (TclEvalObjvInternal): fix for [Bug 571385] in
 2147 	the implementation of TIP#62 (command tracing). Vince Darley, Hemang
 2148 	Lavana & Don Porter: thanks.
 2149 
 2150 2002-06-20  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2151 
 2152 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCompEvalObj): clarified and simplified the
 2153 	logic for compilation/recompilation.
 2154 
 2155 2002-06-19  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 2156 
 2157 	* doc/file.n: Fixed indentation. No substantive changes.
 2158 
 2159 2002-06-19  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2160 
 2161 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_RegexpObjCmd): get the resultPtr again as
 2162 	the Tcl_ObjSetVar2 may cause the result to change. [Patch 558324]
 2163 	(watson)
 2164 
 2165 2002-06-19  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2166 
 2167 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC): removing unused "for(;;)" loop;
 2168 	improved comments; re-indentation.
 2169 
 2170 2002-06-18  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2171 
 2172 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC):
 2173 	- elimination of duplicated code in the non-immediate INST_INCR
 2174 	  instructions.
 2175 	- elimination of 103 (!) TclDecrRefCount macros. The different
 2176 	  instructions now jump back to a common "DecrRefCount zone" at the
 2177 	  top of the loop. The macro "ADJUST_PC" was replaced by two macros
 2178 	  "NEXT_INST_F" and "NEXT_INST_V" that take three params
 2179 	  (pcAdjustment, # of stack objects to discard, resultObjPtr handling
 2180 	  flag). The only instructions that retain a TclDecrRefCount are
 2181 	  INST_POP (for speed), the common code for the non-immediate
 2182 	  INST_INCR, INST_FOREACH_STEP and the two INST_LSET.
 2183 
 2184 	The object size of tclExecute.o was reduced by approx 20% since the
 2185 	start of the consolidation drive, while making room for some peep-hole
 2186 	optimisation at runtime.
 2187 
 2188 2002-06-18  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2189 
 2190 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC, INST_DONE): small bug in the panic code
 2191 	for tcl-stack corruption.
 2192 
 2193 2002-06-17  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2194 
 2195 	Trims to support the removal of RESOURCE_INCLUDED from rc scripts from
 2196 	[FRQ 565088].
 2197 
 2198 	* generic/tcl.h: moved the #ifndef RC_INVOKED start block up in the
 2199 	file. rc scripts don't need to know thread mutexes.
 2200 
 2201 	* win/tcl.rc:
 2202 	* win/tclsh.rc: removed the #define RESOURCE_INCLUDED to let the
 2203 	built-in -DRC_INVOKED to the work.
 2204 
 2205 2002-06-17  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2206 
 2207 	* doc/CrtTrace.3:        Added TIP#62 implementation of command
 2208 	* doc/trace.n:           execution tracing [FRQ 462580] (lavana).
 2209 	* generic/tcl.h:         This includes enter/leave tracing as well
 2210 	* generic/tclBasic.c:    as inter-procedure stepping.
 2211 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:
 2212 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
 2213 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 2214 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 2215 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 2216 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 2217 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 2218 	* generic/tclVar.c:
 2219 	* tests/trace.test:
 2220 
 2221 2002-06-17  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 2222 
 2223 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (BuildCommandLine): Fixed [Bug 554068] ([exec] on
 2224 	windows did not treat { in filenames well.). Bug reported by Vince
 2225 	Darley <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>, patch provided by Vince
 2226 	too.
 2227 
 2228 2002-06-17  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 2229 
 2230 	* generic/tcl.h: #ifdef logic for K&R C backwards compatibility
 2231 	changed to assume modern C by default. See [FRQ 565088] for full
 2232 	details.
 2233 
 2234 2002-06-17  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2235 
 2236 	* doc/msgcat.n: Corrected en_UK references to en_GB. UK is not a
 2237 	country designation recognized in ISO 3166.
 2238 
 2239 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl:  More Windows Registry locale codes from
 2240 	Bruno Haible.
 2241 
 2242 	* doc/msgcat.n:
 2243 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl:
 2244 	* library/msgcat/pkgIndex.tcl:
 2245 	* tests/msgcat.test:  Revised locale initialization to interpret
 2246 	environment variable locale values according to XPG4, and to recognize
 2247 	the LC_ALL and LC_MESSAGES values over that of LANG. Also added many
 2248 	Windows Registry locale values to those recognized by msgcat. Revised
 2249 	tests and docs. Bumped to version 1.3. Thanks to Bruno Haible for the
 2250 	report and assistance crafting the solution. [Bug 525522, 525525]
 2251 
 2252 2002-06-16  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2253 
 2254 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileTokens): a better algorithm for the
 2255 	previous bug fix.
 2256 
 2257 2002-06-16  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2258 
 2259 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileTokens):
 2260 	* tests/compile.test: [Bug 569438] in the processing of dollar
 2261 	variables; report by Georgios Petasis.
 2262 
 2263 2002-06-16  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2264 
 2265 	* generic/tclExecute.c: bug in the consolidation of the INCR_..._STK
 2266 	instructions; the bug could not be exercised as the (faulty)
 2267 	instruction INST_INCR_ARRAY_STK was never compiled-in (related to [Bug
 2268 	569438]).
 2269 
 2270 2002-06-14  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2271 
 2272 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): runtime peep-hole
 2273 	optimisation of variables (INST_STORE, INST_INCR) and commands
 2274 	(INST_INVOKE); faster check for the existence of a catch.
 2275 	(TclExecuteByteCode): runtime peep-hole optimisation of comparisons.
 2276 	(TclExecuteByteCode): runtime peep-hole optimisation of INST_FOREACH -
 2277 	relies on peculiarities of the code produced by the bytecode compiler.
 2278 
 2279 2002-06-14  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2280 
 2281 	* win/rules.vc: The test for compiler optimizations was in error.
 2282 	Thanks goes to Roy Terry <royterry@earthlink.net> for his assistance
 2283 	with this.
 2284 
 2285 2002-06-14  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2286 
 2287 	* doc/trace.n, tests/trace.test:
 2288 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_TraceObjCmd,TclTraceCommandObjCmd)
 2289 	(TclTraceVariableObjCmd): Changed references to "trace list" to
 2290 	"trace info" as mandated by TIP#102.
 2291 
 2292 2002-06-13  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2293 
 2294 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): consolidated code for the
 2295 	conditional branch instructions.
 2296 
 2297 2002-06-13  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2298 
 2299 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): fixed the previous patch;
 2300 	wouldn't compile with TCL_COMPILE_DEBUG set.
 2301 
 2302 2002-06-13  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2303 
 2304 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): consolidated the handling
 2305 	of exception returns to INST_INVOKE and INST_EVAL, as well as most of
 2306 	the code for INST_CONTINUE and INST_BREAK, in the new jump target
 2307 	"processExceptionReturn".
 2308 
 2309 2002-06-13  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2310 
 2311 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): consolidated variable
 2312 	handling opcodes, replaced redundant code with some 'goto'. All
 2313 	store/append/lappend opcodes on the same data type now share the main
 2314 	code; same with incr opcodes.
 2315 	* generic/tclVar.c: added the bit TCL_TRACE_READS to the possible
 2316 	flags to Tcl_SetVar2Ex - it causes read traces to be fired prior to
 2317 	setting the variable. This is used in the core for [lappend].
 2318 
 2319 	***NOTE*** the usage of TCL_TRACE_READS in Tcl_(Obj)?GetVar.* is not
 2320 	documented; there, it causes the call to create the variable if it
 2321 	does not exist. The new usage in Tcl_(Obj)?SetVar.* remains
 2322 	undocumented too ...
 2323 
 2324 2002-06-13  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2325 
 2326 	* tests/fCmd.test:
 2327 	* tests/winFile.test:
 2328 	* tests/fileSystem.test:
 2329 	* generic/tclTest.c:
 2330 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c:
 2331 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 2332 	* doc/FileSystem.3:
 2333 	* mac/tclMacFile.c:
 2334 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
 2335 	* win/tclWinFile.c: fixed up further so both compiles and actually
 2336 	works with VC++ 5 or 6.
 2337 	* win/tclWinInt.h:
 2338 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: cleaned up code and vfs tests and added tests for
 2339 	the internal changes of 2002-06-12, to see whether WinTcl on NTFS can
 2340 	coexist peacefully with links in the filesystem. Added new test
 2341 	command 'testfilelink' to enable the newer code to be tested.
 2342 	* tests/fCmd.test: (made certain tests of 'testfilelink' not run on
 2343 	unix).
 2344 
 2345 2002-06-12  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2346 
 2347 	* tclBasic.c (Tcl_DeleteTrace): fixed [Bug 568123] (thanks to Hemang
 2348 	Lavana)
 2349 
 2350 2002-06-12  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2351 
 2352 	* win/tclWinFile.c: corrected the symbolic link handling code to allow
 2353 	it to compile. Added real definition of REPARSE_DATA_BUFFER (found in
 2354 	winnt.h). Most of the added definitions appear to have correct,
 2355 	cross-Win-version equivalents in winnt.h and should be removed, but
 2356 	just making things "work" for now.
 2357 
 2358 2002-06-12  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2359 
 2360 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 2361 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 2362 	* generic/tclDecls.h: made code for Tcl_FSNewNativePath agree with man
 2363 	pages.
 2364 
 2365 	* doc/FileSystem.3: clarified the circumstances under which certain
 2366 	functions are called in the presence of symlinks.
 2367 
 2368 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 2369 	* win/tclWinPort.h:
 2370 	* win/tclWinInt.h:
 2371 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c:  Fix for Windows to allow 'file lstat', 'file
 2372 	type', 'glob -type l', 'file copy', 'file delete', 'file normalize',
 2373 	and all VFS code to work correctly in the presence of symlinks
 2374 	(previously Tcl's behaviour was not very well defined). This also
 2375 	fixes possible serious problems in all versions of WinTcl where 'file
 2376 	delete' on a NTFS symlink could delete the original, not the symlink.
 2377 	Note: symlinks cannot yet be created in pure Tcl.
 2378 
 2379 2002-06-11  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2380 
 2381 	* generic/tclBasic.c:
 2382 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c:
 2383 	* generic/tclInt.h: reverted the new compilation functions; replaced
 2384 	by a more general approach described below.
 2385 
 2386 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c:
 2387 	* generic/tclCompile.c: made *all* compiled variable access attempts
 2388 	create an indexed variable - even get or incr without previous set.
 2389 	This allows indexed access to local variables that are created and set
 2390 	at runtime, for example by [global], [upvar], [variable], [regexp],
 2391 	[regsub].
 2392 
 2393 2002-06-11  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2394 
 2395 	* doc/global.n:
 2396 	* doc/info.n:
 2397 	* test/info.test:
 2398 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c: fix for [Bug 567386], [info locals] was
 2399 	reporting some linked variables.
 2400 
 2401 	* generic/tclBasic.c:
 2402 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c:
 2403 	* generic/tclInt.h: added compile functions for [global], [variable]
 2404 	and [upvar]. They just declare the new local variables, the commands
 2405 	themselves are not compiled-in. This gives a notably faster read
 2406 	access to these linked variables.
 2407 
 2408 2002-06-11  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2409 
 2410 	* generic/tclExecute.c: optimised algorithm for exception range
 2411 	lookup; part of [Patch 453709].
 2412 
 2413 2002-06-10  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>

 2415 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c: fixed [Bug 566669]
 2416 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: improved and sped up handling of native paths
 2417 	(duplication and conversion to normalized paths), particularly on
 2418 	Windows.
 2419 	* modified part of above commit, due to problems on Linux. Will
 2420 	re-examine bug report and evaluate more closely.
 2421 
 2422 2002-06-07  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2423 
 2424 	* tests/tcltest.test:  More corrections to test suite so that tests of
 2425 	failing [test]s don't show up themselves as failing tests.
 2426 
 2427 2002-06-07  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2428 
 2429 	* generic/tclExecute.c: Tidied up headers in relation to float.h to
 2430 	cut the cruft and ensure DBL_MAX is defined since doubles seem to be
 2431 	the same size everywhere; if the assumption isn't true, the variant
 2432 	platforms had better have run configure...
 2433 
 2434 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h (EOVERFLOW): Added code to define it if it
 2435 	wasn't previously defined. Also some other general tidying and adding
 2436 	of comments. [Bugs 563122, 564595]
 2437 	* compat/tclErrno.h: Added definition for EOVERFLOW copied from
 2438 	Solaris headers; I've been unable to find any uses of EFTYPE, which
 2439 	was the error code previously occupying the slot, in Tcl, or any
 2440 	definition of it in the Solaris headers.
 2441 
 2442 2002-06-06  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 2443 
 2444 	* unix/dltest/Makefile.in: Remove hard coded CFLAGS=-g and add
 2445 	CFLAGS_DEBUG, CFLAGS_OPTIMIZE, and CFLAGS_DEFAULT varaibles. [Bug
 2446 	565488]
 2447 
 2448 2002-06-06  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2449 
 2450 	* tests/tcltest.test:  Corrections to test suite so that tests of
 2451 	failing [test]s don't show up themselves as failing tests.
 2452 
 2453 	* tests/io.test: Fixed up namespace variable resolution issues
 2454 	revealed by running test suite with "-singleproc 1".
 2455 
 2456 	* doc/tcltest.n:
 2457 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:
 2458 	* tests/tcltest.test: Several updates to tcltest.
 2459 	  1) changed to lazy initialization of test constraints
 2460 	  2) deprecated [initConstraintsHook]
 2461 	  3) repaired badly broken [limitConstraints].
 2462 	  4) deprecated [threadReap] and [mainThread]
 2463 	[Patch 512214, Bug 558742, Bug 461000, Bug 534903]
 2464 
 2465 2002-06-06  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 2466 
 2467 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c (TclpReaddir, TclpLocaltime, TclpGmtime): added
 2468 	mutex wrapped calls to readdir, localtime & gmtime in case their
 2469 	thread-safe *_r counterparts are not available.
 2470 	* unix/tcl.m4: added configure check for readdir_r
 2471 	* unix/tcl.m4 (Darwin): set TCL_DEFAULT_ENCODING to utf-8 on MacOSX
 2472 	(where posix file apis expect utf-8, not iso8859-1).
 2473 	* unix/configure: regen
 2474 	* unix/Makefile.in: set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH in parallel to
 2475 	LD_LIBRARY_PATH for MacOSX dynamic linker.
 2476 	* generic/tclEnv.c (TclSetEnv): fix env var setting on MacOSX (adapted
 2477 	from [Patch 524352] by jkbonfield).
 2478 
 2479 2002-06-05  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2480 
 2481 	* doc/Tcl_Main.3: Documented $tcl_rcFileName and added more
 2482 	clarifications about the intended use of Tcl_Main(). [Bug 505651]
 2483 
 2484 2002-06-05  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 2485 
 2486 	* generic/tclFileName.c (TclGlob): mac specific fix to recent changes
 2487 	in 'glob -tails' handling.
 2488 	* mac/tclMacPort.h:
 2489 	* mac/tclMacChan.c: fixed TIP#91 bustage.
 2490 	* mac/tclMacResource.c (Tcl_MacConvertTextResource): added utf
 2491 	conversion of text resource contents.
 2492 	* tests/macFCmd.test (macFCmd-1.2): allow CWIE creator.
 2493 
 2494 2002-06-04  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2495 
 2496 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:
 2497 	* tests/init.test:
 2498 	* tests/tcltest.test:	Added more TIP 85 tests from Arjen Markus.
 2499 	Converted tcltest.test to use a private namespace. Fixed bugs in
 2500 	[tcltest::Eval] revealed by calling [tcltest::test] from a non-global
 2501 	namespace, and namespace errors in init.test.
 2502 
 2503 2002-06-04  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 2504 
 2505 	* win/README: Update msys+mingw URL.
 2506 
 2507 2002-06-03  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2508 
 2509 	* doc/tcltest.n:
 2510 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:
 2511 	* library/tcltest/pkgIndex.tcl:
 2512 	* tests/tcltest.test:  Implementation of TIP 85. Allows tcltest users
 2513 	to add new legal values of the -match option to [test], associating
 2514 	each with a Tcl command that does the matching of expected results
 2515 	with actual results of tests. Thanks to Arjen Markus. => tcltest 2.1
 2516 	[Patch 521362]
 2517 
 2518 2002-06-03  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2519 
 2520 	* doc/namespace.n: added description of [namepace forget] behaviour
 2521 	for unqualified patterns. [Bug 559268]
 2522 
 2523 2002-06-03  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2524 
 2525 	* generic/tclExecute.c: reverting an accidental modification in the
 2526 	last commit.
 2527 
 2528 2002-06-03  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2529 
 2530 	* doc/Tcl.n: clarify the empty variable name issue ([Bug 549285]
 2531 	reported by Tom Krehbiel, patch by Don Porter).
 2532 
 2533 2002-05-31  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2534 
 2535 	* library/package.tcl:  Fixed leak of slave interp in [pkg_mkIndex].
 2536 	Thanks to Helmut for report. [Bug 550534]
 2537 
 2538 	* tests/io.test:
 2539 	* tests/main.test:  Use the "stdio" constraint to control whether an
 2540 	[open "|[interpreter]"] is attempted.
 2541 
 2542 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclMathInProgress,TclExecuteByteCode
 2543 	(ExprCallMathFunc):
 2544 	* generic/tclInt.h (TclMathInProgress):
 2545 	* unix/Makefile.in (tclMtherr.*):
 2546 	* unix/configure.in (NEED_MATHERR):
 2547 	* unix/tclAppInit.c (matherr):
 2548 	* unix/tclMtherr.c (removed file):
 2549 	* win/tclWinMtherr.c (_matherr): Removed internal routine
 2550 	TclMathInProgress and Unix implementation of matherr(). These are now
 2551 	obsolete, dealing with very old versions of the C math library.
 2552 	Windows version is retained in case Borland compilers require it, but
 2553 	it is inactive. Thanks to Joe English. [Bug 474335, Patch 555635]
 2554 
 2555 	* unix/configure: regen
 2556 
 2557 2002-05-30  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2558 
 2559 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c:
 2560 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
 2561 	* generic/tclCompile.h: removed exprIsJustVarRef and
 2562 	exprIsComparison from the ExprInfo and CompileEnv structs. These
 2563 	were set, but not used since dec 1999 [Bug 562383].
 2564 
 2565 2002-05-30  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2566 
 2567 	* generic/tclFileName.c (TclGlob): fix to longstanding 'knownBug' in
 2568 	fileName tests 15.2-15.4, and fix to a new Tcl 8.4 bug in certain uses
 2569 	of 'glob -tails'.
 2570 	* tests/fileName.test: removed 'knownBug' flag from some tests, added
 2571 	some new tests for above bugs.
 2572 
 2573 2002-05-29  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2574 
 2575 	* unix/configure: regen'ed
 2576 	* unix/configure.in: replaced bigendian check with autoconf standard
 2577 	AC_C_BIG_ENDIAN, which defined WORDS_BIGENDIAN on bigendian systems.
 2578 	* generic/tclUtf.c (Tcl_UniCharNcmp):
 2579 	* generic/tclInt.h (TclUniCharNcmp): use WORDS_BIGENDIAN instead of
 2580 	TCL_OPTIMIZE_UNICODE_COMPARE to enable memcmp alternative.
 2581 
 2582 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode INST_STR_CMP):
 2583 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): changed the case for choosing
 2584 	the Tcl_UniCharNcmp compare to when both objs are of StringType, as
 2585 	benchmarks show that is the optimal check (both bigendian and
 2586 	littleendian systems).
 2587 
 2588 2002-05-29  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2589 
 2590 	* generic/tclMain.c: Removed "dummy" reference to Tcl_LinkVar. It is
 2591 	no longer needed since Tcl_Main() now actually calls Tcl_LinkVar().
 2592 	Thanks to Joe English for pointing that out.
 2593 
 2594 2002-05-29  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2595 
 2596 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode):
 2597 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): Use the macro version.
 2598 	* generic/tclInt.h (TclUniCharNcmp): Optimised still further with a
 2599 	macro for use in sensitive places like tclExecute.c
 2600 
 2601 	* generic/tclUtf.c (Tcl_UniCharNcmp): Use new flag to figure out when
 2602 	we can use an optimal comparison scheme, and default to the old scheme
 2603 	in other cases which is at least safe.
 2604 	* unix/configure.in (TCL_OPTIMIZE_UNICODE_COMPARE): New optional flag
 2605 	that indicates when we can use memcmp() to compare Unicode strings
 2606 	(i.e. when the high-byte of a Tcl_UniChar precedes the low-byte.)
 2607 
 2608 2002-05-29  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2609 
 2610 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 2611 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 2612 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 2613 	* generic/tclUtf.c: added TclpUtfNcmp2 private command that
 2614 	mirrors Tcl_UtfNcmp, but takes n in bytes, not utf-8 chars. This
 2615 	provides a faster alternative for comparing utf strings	internally.
 2616 	(Tcl_UniCharNcmp, Tcl_UniCharNcasecmp): removed the explicit end of
 2617 	string check as it wasn't correct for the function (by doc and logic).
 2618 
 2619 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): reworked the string equal
 2620 	comparison code to use TclpUtfNcmp2 as well as short-circuit for
 2621 	equal objects or unequal length strings in the equal case.
 2622 	Removed the use of goto and streamlined the other parts.
 2623 
 2624 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): added check for object
 2625 	equality in the comparison instructions. Added short-circuit for !=
 2626 	length strings in INST_EQ, INST_NEQ and INST_STR_CMP. Reworked
 2627 	INST_STR_CMP to use TclpUtfNcmp2 where appropriate, and only use
 2628 	Tcl_UniCharNcmp when at least one of the objects is a Unicode obj with
 2629 	no utf bytes.
 2630 
 2631 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileStringCmd): removed error creation
 2632 	in code that no longer throws an error.
 2633 
 2634 	* tests/string.test:
 2635 	* tests/stringComp.test: added more string comparison checks.
 2636 
 2637 	* tests/clock.test: better qualified 9.1 constraint check for %s.
 2638 
 2639 2002-05-28  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2640 
 2641 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c (TclpRealloc, TclpFree): protect
 2642 	against the case when NULL is based.
 2643 
 2644 	* tests/clock.test: added clock-9.1
 2645 	* compat/strftime.c:
 2646 	* generic/tclClock.c:
 2647 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 2648 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 2649 	* unix/tclUnixTime.c: fix for Windows msvcrt mem leak caused by using
 2650 	an env(TZ) setting trick for in clock format -gmt 1. This also makes
 2651 	%s seem to work correctly with -gmt 1 as well as making it a lot
 2652 	faster by avoid the env(TZ) hack. TclpStrftime now takes useGMT as an
 2653 	arg. [Bug 559376]
 2654 
 2655 2002-05-28  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2656 
 2657 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fixes to Tcl_FSLoadFile when called on a file
 2658 	inside a vfs. This should avoid leaving temporary files sitting
 2659 	around on exit. [Bug 545579]
 2660 
 2661 2002-05-27  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2662 
 2663 	* win/tclWinError.c: Added comment on conversion of
 2664 	ERROR_NEGATIVE_SEEK because that is a mapping that really belongs,
 2665 	and not a catch-all case.
 2666 	* win/tclWinPort.h (EOVERFLOW): Should be either EFBIG or EINVAL
 2667 	* generic/tclPosixStr.c (Tcl_ErrnoId, Tcl_ErrnoMsg): EOVERFLOW can
 2668 	potentially be a synonym for EINVAL.
 2669 
 2670 2002-05-24  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2671 
 2672 	=== Changes due to TIP#91 ===
 2673 
 2674 	* win/tclWinPort.h: Added declaration of EOVERFLOW.
 2675 	* doc/CrtChannel.3: Added documentation of wideSeekProc.
 2676 	* generic/tclIOGT.c (TransformSeekProc, TransformWideSeekProc):
 2677 	Adapted to use the new channel mechanism.
 2678 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (FileSeekProc, FileWideSeekProc): Renamed
 2679 	FileSeekProc to FileWideSeekProc and created new FileSeekProc which
 2680 	has the old-style interface and which errors out with EOVERFLOW when
 2681 	the returned file position can't fit into the return type (int for
 2682 	historical reasons).
 2683 	* win/tclWinChan.c (FileSeekProc, FileWideSeekProc): Renamed
 2684 	FileSeekProc to FileWideSeekProc and created new FileSeekProc which
 2685 	has the old-style interface and which errors out with EOVERFLOW when
 2686 	the returned file position can't fit into the return type (int for
 2687 	historical reasons).
 2688 	* mac/tclMacChan.c (FileSeek): Reverted to old interface; Macs lack
 2689 	large-file support because I can't see how to add it.
 2690 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_Seek, Tcl_Tell): Given these functions
 2691 	knowledge of the new arrangement of channel types.
 2692 	(Tcl_ChannelVersion): Added recognition of new version code.
 2693 	(HaveVersion): New function to do version checking.
 2694 	(Tcl_ChannelBlockModeProc, Tcl_ChannelFlushProc)
 2695 	(Tcl_ChannelHandlerProc): Made these functions use HaveVersion for
 2696 	ease of future maintainability.
 2697 	(Tcl_ChannelBlockModeProc): Obvious lookup function.
 2698 	* generic/tcl.h (Tcl_ChannelType): New wideSeekProc field, and
 2699 	seekProc type restored to old interpretation.
 2700 	(TCL_CHANNEL_VERSION_3): New channel version.
 2701 
 2702 2002-05-24  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 2703 
 2704 	* tests/winPipe.test: Applied patch for [Bug 549617]. Patch and bug
 2705 	report by Kevin Kenny <kennykb@users.sourceforge.net>.
 2706 
 2707 	* win/tclWinSock.c (TcpWatchProc): Fixed [Bug 557878]. We are not
 2708 	allowed to mess with the watch mask if the socket is a server socket.
 2709 	I believe that the original reporter is George Peter Staplin.
 2710 
 2711 2002-05-21  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 2712 
 2713 	* unix/configure: Regen.
 2714 	* unix/configure.in: Invoke SC_ENABLE_SHARED before calling
 2715 	SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS so that the SHARED_BUILD variable can be checked
 2716 	inside SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS.
 2717 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Pass -non_shared instead of -shared
 2718 	to ld when configured with --disable-shared under OSF. [Bug 540390]
 2719 
 2720 2002-05-20  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 2721 
 2722 	* generic/tclInt.h: added prototype for TclpFilesystemPathType().
 2723 	* mac/tclMacChan.c: use MSL provided creator type if available instead
 2724 	of the default 'MPW '.
 2725 
 2726 2002-05-16  Joe English  <jenglish@users.sf.net>
 2727 
 2728 	* doc/CrtObjCmd.3: Added Tcl_GetCommandFromObj, Tcl_GetCommandFullName
 2729 	[Bugs 547987, 414921]
 2730 
 2731 2002-05-14  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2732 
 2733 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (TtyOutputProc): #if/#endif-ed this function out
 2734 	to stop compiler warnings. Also much general tidying of comments in
 2735 	this file and removal of whitespace from blank lines.
 2736 
 2737 2002-05-13  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2738 
 2739 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (SETBREAK): Solaris thinks ioctl() takes a signed
 2740 	second argument, and Linux thinks ioctl() takes an unsigned second
 2741 	argument. So need a longer definition of this macro to get neither to
 2742 	spew warnings...
 2743 
 2744 2002-05-13  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2745 
 2746 	* generic/tclEvent.c:
 2747 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 2748 	* generic/tclInt.h: clean up all memory allocated by the filesystem,
 2749 	via introduction of 'TclFinalizeFilesystem'.
 2750 	Move TclFinalizeLoad into TclFinalizeFilesystem so we can be sure it
 2751 	is called at just the right time.
 2752 	Fix bad comment also. [Bug 555078 and 'fs' part of 543549]
 2753 	* win/tclWinChan.c: fix comment referring to wrong function.
 2754 
 2755 2002-05-10  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2756 
 2757 	* tests/load.test:
 2758 	* tests/safe.test:
 2759 	* tests/tcltest.test: Corrected some list-quoting issues and other
 2760 	matters that cause tests to fail when the patch includes special
 2761 	characters. Report from Vince Darley. [Bug 554068]
 2762 
 2763 2002-05-08    David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2764 
 2765 	* doc/file.n:
 2766 	* tools/man2tcl.c:
 2767 	* tools/man2help2.tcl:  Thanks to Peter Spjuth
 2768 	<peter.spjuth@space.se>, again. My prior fix for single-quote macro
 2769 	mis-understanding was wrong. Reverted to reimpliment the 'macro2' proc
 2770 	which handles single-quote macros and restored file.n text arrangement
 2771 	to avoid single-quotes on the first line. Sorry for all the confusion.
 2772 
 2773 2002-05-08  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2774 
 2775 	* tools/man2tcl.c:
 2776 	* tools/man2help2.tcl: Proper source of macro error misunderstanding
 2777 	single-quote as the leading macro command found and repaired.
 2778 
 2779 	* doc/file.n: Reverted to prior state before I messed with it.
 2780 
 2781 2002-05-08  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2782 
 2783 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Corrected [uplevel] quoting when
 2784 	[source]-ing test script in subdirectories.
 2785 	* tests/fileName.test:
 2786 	* tests/load.test:
 2787 	* tests/main.test:
 2788 	* tests/tcltest.test:
 2789 	* tests/unixInit.test: Fixes to test suite when there's a space in the
 2790 	working path. Thanks to Kevin Kenny.
 2791 
 2792 2002-05-07  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2793 
 2794 	-- Changes from Peter Spjuth <peter.spjuth@space.se>
 2795 	* tools/man2tcl.c: Increased line buffer size and a bail-out if that
 2796 	should ever be over-run.
 2797 	* tools/man2help.tcl: Include Courier New font in rtf header.
 2798 	* tools/man2help2.tcl: Improved handling of CS/CE fields. Use Courier
 2799 	New for code samples and indent better.
 2800 
 2801 	* doc/file.n:
 2802 	* doc/TraceCmd.3:  winhelp conversion tools where understanding
 2803 	a ' as the first character on a line to be an unknown macro.
 2804 	Not knowing how to repair tools/man2tcl.c, I decided to rearrange
 2805 	the text in the docs instead.

 2807 2002-05-07  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2808 
 2809 	* generic/tclFileName.c: fix to similar segfault when using 'glob
 2810 	-types nonsense -dir dirname -join * *'. [Bug 553320]
 2811 
 2812 	* doc/FileSystem.3: further documentation on vfs.
 2813 	* tests/cmdAH.test:
 2814 	* tests/fileSystem.test:
 2815 	* tests/pkgMkindex.test: Fix to testsuite bugs when running out of
 2816 	directory whose name contains '{' or '['.
 2817 
 2818 2002-05-07  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2819 
 2820 	* tests/basic.test: Fix for [Bug 549607]
 2821 	* tests/encoding.test: Fix for [Bug 549610]
 2822 	These are testsuite bugs that caused failures when the filename
 2823 	contained spaces. Report & fix by Kevin Kenny.
 2824 
 2825 2002-05-02  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2826 
 2827 	* generic/tclFileName.c: fix to freeing a bad object (i.e. segfault)
 2828 	when using 'glob -types nonsense -dir dirname'.
 2829 	* generic/tclWinFile.c: fix to [Bug 551306], also wrapped some long
 2830 	lines.
 2831 	* tests/fileName.test: added several tests for the above bugs.
 2832 	* doc/FileSystem.3: clarified documentation on refCount requirements
 2833 	of the object returned by the path type function.
 2834 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 2835 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 2836 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
 2837 	* mac/tclMacFile.c: moved TclpFilesystemPathType to the platform-
 2838 	specific directories, so we can add missing platform-specific
 2839 	implementations. On Windows, 'file system' now returns useful results
 2840 	like "native NTFS", "native FAT" for that system. Unix and MacOS still
 2841 	only return "native".
 2842 	* doc/file.n: clarified documentation.
 2843 	* tests/winFile.test: test for 'file system' returning correct values.
 2844 	* tests/fileSystem.test: test for 'file system' returning correct
 2845 	values. Clean up after failed previous test run.
 2846 
 2847 2002-04-26  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2848 
 2849 	* unix/configure:
 2850 	* unix/tcl.m4: change HP-11 SHLIB_LD_LIBS from "" to ${LIBS} so that
 2851 	the .sl knows its dependent libs.
 2852 
 2853 2002-04-26  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2854 
 2855 	* tests/obj.test (obj-11.[56]): Test conversion to boolean more
 2856 	thoroughly.
 2857 	* generic/tclObj.c (SetBooleanFromAny): Was not calling an integer
 2858 	parsing function on native 64-bit platforms! [Bug 548686]
 2859 
 2860 2002-04-24  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2861 
 2862 	* generic/tclInt.h: corrected TclRememberJoinableThread decl to use
 2863 	VOID instead of void.
 2864 	* generic/tclThreadJoin.c: noted that this code isn't needed on Unix.
 2865 
 2866 2002-04-23  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2867 
 2868 	* doc/exec.n:
 2869 	* doc/tclvars.n: doc updates [Patch 509426] (gravereaux)
 2870 
 2871 2002-04-24  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 2872 
 2873 	* mac/tclMacResource.r: added check of TCLTK_NO_LIBRARY_TEXT_RESOURCES
 2874 	#define to allow disabling the inclusion of the tcl library code in
 2875 	the resource fork of Tcl executables and shared libraries.
 2876 
 2877 2002-04-23  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2878 
 2879 	* doc/TraceCmd.3: New file that documents Tcl_CommandTraceInfo,
 2880 	Tcl_TraceCommand and Tcl_UntraceCommand [Bug 414927]
 2881 
 2882 2002-04-22  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2883 
 2884 	* generic/tclAlloc.c:
 2885 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 2886 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c (new):
 2887 	* unix/Makefile.in:
 2888 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c:
 2889 	* win/Makefile.in:
 2890 	* win/tclWinInt.h:
 2891 	* win/tclWinThrd.c: added new threaded allocator contributed by AOL
 2892 	that significantly reduces lock contention when multiple threads are
 2893 	in use. Only Windows and Unix implementations are ready, and the
 2894 	Windows one may need work. It is only used by default on Unix for now,
 2895 	and requires that USE_THREAD_ALLOC be defined (--enable-threads on
 2896 	Unix will define this).
 2897 
 2898 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (Tcl_FSRegister, Tcl_FSUnregister): corrected
 2899 	calling of Tcl_ConditionWait to ensure that there would be a condition
 2900 	to wait upon.
 2901 
 2902 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_FileObjCmd): added cast in FILE_SIZE.
 2903 
 2904 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c (DoDeleteFile): check return of setattr API calls
 2905 	in file deletion for correct Win32 API handling.
 2906 
 2907 	* win/Makefile.in: correct dependencies for shell, gdb, runtest
 2908 	targets.
 2909 
 2910 	* doc/clock.n:
 2911 	* compat/strftime.c (_fmt): change strftime to correctly handle
 2912 	localized %c, %x and %X on Windows. Added some notes about how the
 2913 	other values could be further localized.
 2914 
 2915 2002-04-19  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2916 
 2917 	* generic/tclMain.c (Tcl_Main):  Free the memory allocated for the
 2918 	startup script path. [Bug 543549]
 2919 
 2920 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl:  [mcmax] wasn't using the caller's
 2921 	namespace when determining the max translated length. Also made
 2922 	revisions for better use of namespace variables and more efficient
 2923 	[uplevel]s.
 2924 
 2925 	* doc/msgcat.n:
 2926 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl:
 2927 	* library/msgcat/pkgIndex.tcl:  Added [mcload] to the export list of
 2928 	msgcat; bumped to 1.2.3. [Bug 544727]
 2929 
 2930 2002-04-20  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 2931 
 2932 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 2933 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h:
 2934 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 2935 	* mac/tclMacFCmd.c:
 2936 	* mac/tclMacFile.c:
 2937 	* mac/tclMacUtil.c: Modified TclpObjNormalizePath to be alias file
 2938 	aware, and replaced various calls to FSpLocationFrom*Path by calls to
 2939 	new alias file aware versions FSpLLocationFrom*Path. The alias file
 2940 	aware routines don't resolve the last component of a path if it is an
 2941 	alias. This allows [file copy/delete] etc. to act correctly on alias
 2942 	files. (c.f. discussion in [Bug 511666])
 2943 
 2944 2002-04-19  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2945 
 2946 	* tests/lindex.test (lindex-3.7):
 2947 	* generic/tclUtil.c (TclGetIntForIndex): Stopped indexes from hitting
 2948 	wide ints. [Bug 526717]
 2949 
 2950 2002-04-18  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2951 
 2952 	* generic/tclNamesp.c:
 2953 	* tests/info.test: [Bug 545325] info level didn't report namespace
 2954 	eval, bug report by Richard Suchenwirth.
 2955 
 2956 2002-04-18  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2957 
 2958 	* doc/subst.n:  Clarified documentation on handling unusual return
 2959 	codes during substitution, and on variable substitutions implied by
 2960 	command substitution, and vice versa. [Bug 536838]
 2961 
 2962 2002-04-18  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 2963 
 2964 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoBodyCmd):
 2965 	* tests/info.test (info-2.6): Proc bodies without string reps would
 2966 	report as empty. [Bug 545644]
 2967 
 2968 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_SubstObj): More clarification for comment on
 2969 	behaviour when substitutions are not well-formed, prompted by [Bug
 2970 	536831]; alas, removing the ill-defined behaviour is a lot of work.
 2971 
 2972 2002-04-18  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 2973 
 2974 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 2975 	* tests/expr-old.test: fix for [Bug 542588] (Phil Ehrens), where "too
 2976 	large integers" were reported as "floating-point value" in [expr]
 2977 	error messages.
 2978 
 2979 2002-04-17  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2980 
 2981 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (EscapeFromUtfProc):
 2982 	* generic/tclIO.c (WriteChars, Tcl_Close): corrected the handling of
 2983 	outputting end escapes for escape-based encodings.
 2984 	[Bug 526524] (yamamoto)
 2985 
 2986 2002-04-17  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2987 
 2988 	* doc/tcltest.n:  Removed [saveState] and [restoreState] from tcltest
 2989 	2 documentation, effectively deprecating them. [Bug 495660]
 2990 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Made separate export for commands kept
 2991 	only for tcltest 1 compatibility.
 2992 
 2993 	* tests/iogt.test: Revised to run tests in a namespace, rather than
 2994 	use the useless and buggy [saveState] and [restoreState] commands of
 2995 	tcltest. Updated to use tcltest 2 as well. [Patch 544911]
 2996 
 2997 2002-04-16  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2998 
 2999 	* tests/io.test: Revised to run tests in a namespace, rather than use
 3000 	the useless and buggy [saveState] and [restoreState] commands of
 3001 	tcltest. Updated to use tcltest 2 as well. [Patch 544546]
 3002 
 3003 2002-04-15  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3004 
 3005 	* generic/tclProc.c:
 3006 	* tests/proc-old.test: Improved stack trace for TCL_BREAK and
 3007 	TCL_CONTINUE returns from procs. Patch by Don Porter [Bug 536955].
 3008 
 3009 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 3010 	* tests/compile.test: made bytecodes check for a catch before
 3011 	returning; the compiled [return] is otherwise non-catchable. [Bug
 3012 	542142] reported by Andreas Kupries.
 3013 
 3014 2002-04-15  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3015 
 3016 	* tests/socket.test:  Increased timeout values so that tests have
 3017 	time to successfully complete even on slow/busy machines. [Bug 523470]
 3018 
 3019 	* doc/tcltest.n:
 3020 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:
 3021 	* tests/tcltest.test:  Revised [tcltest::test] to return errors when
 3022 	called with invalid syntax and to accept exactly two arguments as
 3023 	documented. Improved error messages. [Bug 497446, Patch 513983]
 3024 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***: Incompatible with previous tcltest
 3025 	2.* releases, found only in alpha releases of Tcl 8.4.
 3026 
 3027 2002-04-11  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3028 
 3029 	* generic/tclNotify.c (TclFinalizeNotifier): remove remaining
 3030 	unserviced events on finalization.
 3031 
 3032 	* win/tcl.m4: Enabled COFF as well as CV style debug info with
 3033 	--enable-symbols to allow Dr. Watson users to see function info. More
 3034 	info on debugging levels can be obtained at:
 3035 	http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dnvc60/html/gendepdebug.asp
 3036 
 3037 	* tests/ioCmd.test: fixed iocmd-8.15 to have mac and unixPc variants.
 3038 
 3039 	* generic/tclParse.c (Tcl_ParseVar): conditionally incr obj refcount
 3040 	to prevent possible mem leak.
 3041 
 3042 2002-04-08  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 3043 
 3044 	* generic/tcl.h: no <sys/types.h> on mac.
 3045 	* mac/tclMacFile.c: minor fixes to Vince's changes from 03-24.
 3046 	* mac/tclMacOSA.c:
 3047 	* mac/tclMacResource.c: added missing Tcl_UtfToExternalDString
 3048 	conversions of resource file names.
 3049 	* mac/tclMacSock.c (TcpGetOptionProc): fixed bug introduced by Andreas
 3050 	on 02-25; changed strcmp's to strncmp's so that option comparison
 3051 	behaves like on other platforms.
 3052 	* mac/tcltkMacBuildSupport.sea.hqx (CW Pro6 changes): added support to
 3053 	allow Tk to hookup C library stderr/stdout to TkConsole.
 3054 	* tests/basic.test:
 3055 	* tests/cmdAH.test:
 3056 	* tests/encoding.test:
 3057 	* tests/fileSystem.test:
 3058 	* tests/ioCmd.test: fixed tests failing on mac: check for existence of
 3059 	[exec], changed some result strings.
 3060 
 3061 2002-04-06  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3062 
 3063 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c (Realpath): added a little extra code to
 3064 	initialize a realpath arg when compiling in PURIFY mode in order to
 3065 	prevent spurious purify warnings. We should really create our own
 3066 	realpath implementation, but this will at least quiet purify for now.
 3067 
 3068 2002-04-05  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3069 
 3070 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_SubstObj):
 3071 	* tests/subst.test:  Corrected [subst] so that return codes TCL_BREAK
 3072 	and TCL_CONTINUE returned by variable substitution have the same
 3073 	effect as when those codes are returned by command substitution. [Bug
 3074 	536879]
 3075 
 3076 2002-04-03  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3077 
 3078 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: added getMatchingFiles back (alias to
 3079 	GetMatchingFiles), which was a public function in tcltest 1.0.
 3080 
 3081 2002-04-01  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3082 
 3083 	* generic/tclEnv.c:
 3084 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: invalidate filesystem cache when the user
 3085 	changes env(HOME). Fixes [Bug 535621]. Also cleaned up some of the
 3086 	documentation.
 3087 	* tests/fileSystem.test: added test for bug just fixed.
 3088 
 3089 2002-04-01  Kevin Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 3090 
 3091 	* win/tclWinTime.c (Tcl_GetTime): made the checks of clock frequency
 3092 	more permissive to cope with the fact that Win98SE is observed to
 3093 	return 1.19318 in place of 1.193182 for the performance counter
 3094 	frequency.
 3095 
 3096 2002-03-29  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3097 
 3098 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_TraceObjCmd, TraceVarProc)
 3099 	(TraceCommandProc, TclTraceCommandObjCmd):  corrected potential
 3100 	double-free of traces on variables by flagging in Trace*Proc that it
 3101 	will free the var in case the eval wants to delete the var trace as
 3102 	well. [Bug 536937] Also converted Tcl_UntraceVar -> Tcl_UntraceVar2
 3103 	and Tcl_Eval to Tcl_EvalEx in Trace*Proc for slight efficiency
 3104 	improvement.
 3105 
 3106 2002-03-29  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3107 
 3108 	* doc/AllowExc.3:
 3109 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalObjv,Tcl_EvalEx,Tcl_EvalObjEx):
 3110 	* generic/tclCompile.h (TclCompEvalObj):
 3111 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCompEvalObj,TclExecuteByteCode):
 3112 	* tests/basic.test: Corrected problems with Tcl_AllowExceptions having
 3113 	influence over the wrong scope of Tcl_*Eval* calls. Patch from Miguel
 3114 	Sofer. Report from Jean-Claude Wippler. [Bug 219181]
 3115 
 3116 2002-03-28  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3117 
 3118 	* generic/tclVar.c: Refactored CallTraces to collect repeated handling
 3119 	of its returned value into CallTraces itself.
 3120 
 3121 2002-03-28  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3122 
 3123 	* tools/feather.bmp:
 3124 	* tools/man2help.tcl:
 3125 	* tools/man2help2.tcl:
 3126 	* win/makefile.vc: More winhelp target fixups. Added a feather bitmap
 3127 	to the non-scrollable area and changed the color to be yellow from a
 3128 	plain white. The colors can be whatever we want them to be, but
 3129 	thought I would start with something bold. [Bug 527941]
 3130 
 3131 	* doc/SetVar.3:
 3132 	* doc/TraceVar.3:
 3133 	* doc/UpVar.3:  .AP macro syntax repair.
 3134 
 3135 2002-03-27  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3136 
 3137 	* tools/man2help.tcl:
 3138 	* win/makefile.vc:  winhelp target now copies all needed files from
 3139 	tools/ to a workarea under $(OUT_DIR) and builds it from there. No
 3140 	build cruft is left in tools/ anymore. All paths used in man2help.tcl
 3141 	are now relative to where the script is. [Bug 527941]
 3142 
 3143 2002-03-27  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3144 
 3145 	* win/.cvsignore:
 3146 	* win/buildall.vc.bat:
 3147 	* win/coffbase.txt:
 3148 	* win/makefile.vc:
 3149 	* win/nmakehlp.c (new):
 3150 	* win/rules.vc:  First draft fix for [Bug 527941]. More changes need
 3151 	to done to the makehelp target to get to stop leaving build files in
 3152 	the tools/ directory. This does not address the syntax errors in the
 3153 	man files. Having the contents of tcl.hpj(.in) inside makefile.vc
 3154 	allows for version numbers to be replaced with macros.
 3155 
 3156 	The new nmakehlp.c is built by rules.vc in preprocessing and removes
 3157 	the need to use tricky shell syntax that wasn't compatible on Win9x
 3158 	systems. Clean targets made Win9x complient. This is a first draft
 3159 	repair for [Bug 533862].
 3160 
 3161 2002-03-28  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3162 
 3163 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalEx): passing the correct commandSize to
 3164 	TclEvalObjvInternal. [Bug 219362], fix by David Knoll.
 3165 
 3166 2002-03-28  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3167 
 3168 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalEx):
 3169 	* tests/basic.test: avoid exceptional returns at level 0. [Bug 219181]
 3170 
 3171 2002-03-27  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3172 
 3173 	* doc/tcltest.n ([mainThread]):
 3174 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:
 3175 	* tests/tcltest.test:  Major code cleanup to deal with whitespace,
 3176 	coding conventions, and namespace issues, with several minor bugs
 3177 	fixed in the process.
 3178 
 3179 	* tests/main.test: Added missing [after cancel]s.
 3180 
 3181 2002-03-25  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3182 
 3183 	* tests/main.test: Removed workarounds for Bug 495977.
 3184 
 3185 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:  Keep the value of $::auto_path
 3186 	unchanged, so that the tcltest package can test code that depends on
 3187 	auto-loading. If a testing application needs $::auto_path pruned, it
 3188 	should do that itself. [Bug 495726]
 3189 	Improve the processing of the -constraints option to [test] so that
 3190 	constraint lists can have arbitrary whitespace, and non-lists don't
 3191 	blow things up. [Bug 495977]
 3192 	Corrected faulty variable initialization. [Bug 534845]
 3193 
 3194 2002-03-25  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3195 
 3196 	* doc/CrtTrace.3: small doc correction
 3197 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_DeleteTrace): Allow NULL callback on trace
 3198 	deletions. [Bug 534728] (Hemang Lavana)
 3199 
 3200 2002-03-24  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3201 
 3202 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalObjv): replaced obscure, incorrect code

 3205 2002-03-24  Don Porter  <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3206 
 3207 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:  Use [interpreter] to set/query the
 3208 	executable currently running the tcltest package. [Bug 454050]
 3209 
 3210 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:  Allow non-proc commands to be used as

 3231 	* tests/winFCmd.test: fix [Bug 511666] and [Bug 511658], and improved
 3232 	documentation of some aspects of the filesystem, particularly
 3233 	'Tcl_FSMatchInDirectory' which now might match a single file/directory
 3234 	only, and 'file normalize' which wasn't very clear before. Removed
 3235 	inconsistency betweens docs and the Tcl_Filesystem structure. Also
 3236 	fixed [Bug 523217] and corrected file normalization on Unix so that
 3237 	it expands symbolic links. Added some new tests of the filesystem
 3238 	code (in the new file 'fileSystem.test'), and some extra tests for
 3239 	correct handling of symbolic links. Fix to [Bug 530960] which shows up
 3240 	on Win98. Made comparison with ".com" case insensitive in tclWinPipe.c
 3241 
 3242 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***: But only between alpha releases
 3243 	(users of the new Tcl_Filesystem lookup table in Tcl 8.4a4 need to
 3244 	handle the new way in which Tcl may call Tcl_FSMatchInDirectory, and
 3245 	'file normalize' on unix now behaves correctly). Only known impact is
 3246 	with the 'tclvfs' extension.

 3258 
 3259 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalObjEx):

 3261 	return codes other than (TCL_OK, TCL_ERROR) to runLevel 0.[Bug 533758]
 3262 	Removed the static RecordTracebackInfo(), as its functionality is
 3263 	easily replicated by Tcl_LogCommandInfo. Bug and redundancy noted by

 3434 
 3435 	* tests/encoding.test: added encoding-23.* tests
 3436 	* generic/tclIO.c (FilterInputBytes): reset the TCL_ENCODING_START
 3437 	flags in the ChannelState when using 'gets'. [Bug 523988]
 3438 	Also reduced the value of ENCODING_LINESIZE from 30 to 20 as this
 3439 	seems to improve the performance of 'gets' according to tclbench.

 3441 2002-02-28  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3442 
 3443 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TraceCommandProc): ensure that TraceCommandInfo
 3444 	structure was also deleted when a command was deleted to prevent a
 3445 	mem leak.
 3446 
 3447 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateObjTrace): set tracePtr->flags
 3448 	correctly.
 3449 
 3450 	* generic/tclTimer.c (TimerExitProc): remove remaining events in
 3451 	tls on thread exit.
 3452 
 3453 2002-02-28  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3454 
 3455 	* generic/tclNamesp.c: allow cached fully-qualified namespace names to
 3456 	be usable from different namespaces within the same interpreter
 3457 	without forcing a new lookup [Patch 458872].
 3458 
 3459 2002-02-28  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3460 
 3461 	* generic/tclExecute.c: Replaced a few direct stack accesses with the

 3465 
 3466 	* doc/GetIndex.3:
 3467 	* generic/tcl.decls (Tcl_GetIndexFromObjStruct):
 3468 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (Tcl_GetIndexFromObjStruct):  Revised the
 3469 	prototype of the Tcl_GetIndexFromObjStruct to take its struct table as
 3470 	a (CONST VOID *) argument, better describing what it is, maintaining
 3471 	source compatibility, and adding CONST correctness according to TIP
 3472 	27. Thanks to Joe English for an elegant solution. [Bug 520304]
 3473 
 3474 	* generic/tclDecls.h: make genstubs
 3475 
 3476 	* generic/tclMain.c (Tcl_Main,StdinProc):  Corrected some reference
 3477 	count management errors on the interactive command Tcl_Obj found by
 3478 	Purify. Thanks to Jeff Hobbs for the report and assistance.
 3479 
 3480 2002-02-27  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>

 3484 
 3485 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestStatProc[123]): correct harmless UMRs.
 3486 
 3487 	* generic/tclLink.c (Tcl_LinkVar): correct mem leak in error case.
 3488 
 3489 2002-02-27  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3490 
 3491 	* tests/socket.test (2.7): Accepted and applied patch for [Bug 523470]
 3492 	provided by Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net> to avoid timing
 3493 	problems in that test.
 3494 
 3495 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (TclpOpenFileChannel): Added code to regonize
 3496 	"/dev/tty" (by name) and to not handle it as tty / serial line. This
 3497 	is the controlling terminal and is special. Setting it into raw mode
 3498 	as is done for other tty's is a bad idea. This is a hackish fix for
 3499 	expect [Bug 520624]. The fix has limitation: Tcl_MakeFileChannel
 3500 	handles tty's specially too, but is unable to recognize /dev/tty as it
 3501 	only gets a file descriptor, and no name for it.
 3502 
 3503 2002-02-26  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3504 
 3505 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (StoreStatData): corrected mem leak.

 3508 	remedial regsub case.
 3509 
 3510 	* generic/tclFileName.c (Tcl_TranslateFileName): decr refcount for
 3511 	error case to prevent mem leak.
 3512 
 3513 	* generic/tclVar.c (Tcl_ArrayObjCmd): removed extra obj allocation.
 3514 
 3515 	* unix/tclUnixSock.c (Tcl_GetHostName): added an extra
 3516 	gethostbyname check to guard against failure with truncated
 3517 	names returned by uname.
 3518 
 3519 	* unix/configure:
 3520 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_SERIAL_PORT): added sys/modem.h check and defined
 3521 	_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED for HP-11 to get updated header decls.
 3522 
 3523 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c: added Unix implementation of TIP #35, serial
 3524 	port support. [Patch 438509] (schroedter)
 3525 
 3526 2002-02-26  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3527 
 3528 	* generic/tclCmpCmds.c: (bugfix to the bugfix, hopefully the last)
 3529 	Bugfix to the new [for] compiling code: was setting a exceptArray
 3530 	parameter using another param which wasn't yet initialised, thus
 3531 	filling it with noise.
 3532 
 3533 2002-02-25  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3534 
 3535 	* mac/tclMacSock.c (TcpGetOptionProc): Changed to recognize the option

 3548 	to accurately describe when and how they are used. [Bug 497459] (dgp)
 3549 
 3550 	* generic/tclHash.c (AllocArrayEntry, AllocStringEntry):
 3551 	Before invoking ckalloc when creating a Tcl_HashEntry,
 3552 	check that the amount of memory being allocated is
 3553 	at least as large as sizeof(Tcl_HashEntry). The previous

 3557 2002-02-25  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>

 3559 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalEx): avoiding a buffer overrun
 3560 	reported by Joe English, and restoring tcl7.6 behaviour for
 3561 	[subst]: badly terminated nested scripts will raise an error
 3562 	and not be evaluated. [Bug 495207]

 3566 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h: corrected strtoll prototype mismatch on Tru64.
 3567 	* compat/strtod.c (strtod): simplified #includes
 3568 	* compat/strtol.c (strtol): gather result in a long before returning

 3570 
 3571 2002-02-25  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>

 3575 
 3576 2002-02-25  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3577 
 3578 	* generic/tclCompCmds: fixing a bug in patch dated 2002-02-22, in the
 3579 	code for [for] and [while]. Under certain conditions, for long bodies,
 3580 	the exception range parameters were badly computed. Tests forthcoming:
 3581 	I still can't reproduce the conditions in the testsuite (!), although
 3582 	the bug (with assorted segfault or panic!)  can be triggered from the
 3583 	console or with the new parse.bench in tclbench.

 3585 2002-02-25  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 3586

 3595 	sign symbols '+' and '-' and '0X' and raise overflow errors.
 3596 	[Bug 440916]  Also corrects prototype and errno problems.
 3597 
 3598 2002-02-23  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 3599 
 3600 	* configure: Regen.
 3601 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Link with -n32 instead of -32 when
 3602 	building on IRIX64-6.* system. [Bug 521707]
 3603 
 3604 2002-02-22  Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3605 
 3606 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 3607 	* generic/tclObj.c: renamed global variable emptyString ->
 3608 	tclEmptyString because it is no longer static.
 3609 	* generic/tclPkg.c: Fix for panic when library is loaded on a
 3610 	platform without backlinking without proper use of stubs. [Bug 476537]
 3611 
 3612 2002-02-22  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3613 
 3614 	* tests/regexpComp.test: updated regexp-11.[1-4] to match changes in
 3615 	regexp.test for new regsub syntax
 3616 
 3617 	* unix/configure:
 3618 	* unix/tcl.m4: added --enable-64bit support for AIX-4 (using -q64
 3619 	flag) when using IBM's xlc compiler.
 3620 
 3621 	* tests/safe.test: updated safe-8.5 and safe-8.7
 3622 	* library/safe.tcl (CheckFileName): removed the limit on
 3623 	sourceable file names (was only *.tcl or tclIndex files with no more
 3624 	than one dot and 14 chars). There is enough internal protection in a
 3625 	safe interpreter already. [Tk Bug 521560]
 3626 
 3627 2002-02-22  Miguel Sofer  <msofer@users.sourceforge.net>
 3628 
 3629 	* generic/tclCompCmds: [FR 465811]. Optimising [if], [for] and [while]
 3630 	for constant conditions; in addition, [for] and [while] are now
 3631 	compiled with the "loop rotation" optimisation (thanks to Kevin
 3632 	Kenny).
 3633 
 3634 2002-02-22  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 3635 
 3636 	--- TIP#76 CHANGES ---
 3637 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_RegsubObjCmd): Final-argument-less
 3638 	[regsub] returns the modified string.
 3639 	* doc/regsub.n: Updated docs.
 3640 	* tests/regexp.test: Updated and added tests.
 3641 
 3642 	* compat/strtoll.c (strtoll):
 3643 	* compat/strtoull.c (strtoull):
 3644 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:
 3645 	* win/tclWinPort.h: Const-ing 64-bit compatibility declarations. Note
 3646 	that the return pointer is non-const because it is entirely legal for
 3647 	the functions to be called from somewhere that owns the string being
 3648 	passed. Fixes problem reported by Larry Virden.
 3649 
 3650 2002-02-21  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3651 
 3652 	* win/mkd.bat (removed):
 3653 	* win/coffbase.txt (new):
 3654 	* win/makefile.bc:
 3655 	* win/makefile.vc:  Changed the 'setup' target to stop using the
 3656 	mkd.bat file and just make the directory right in the rule. Same
 3657 	change to makefile.bc. Neither configure.in nor Makefile.in use it.
 3658 
 3659 	coffbase.txt will be the master list for our "prefered base addresses"
 3660 	set by the linker. This should improve load-time (NT only) by avoiding
 3661 	relocations. Submissions to the list by extension authors are
 3662 	encouraged.
 3663 
 3664 	Added a 'tidy' target to compliment 'clean' and 'hose' to remove just
 3665 	the outputs. Also removed the $(winlibs) macro as it wasn't being
 3666 	used.
 3667 
 3668 	Stuff left to do:
 3669 	1) get the winhelp target to stop building in the tools/ directory.
 3670 	2) stop using rmd.bat
 3671 	3) add more dependacy rules.
 3672 
 3673 	* win/tclAppInit.c:  Reverted back to -r1.6, as the header file change
 3674 	to tclPort.h won't allow for easy embedded support outside of the
 3675 	source dist. Thanks to Don Porter for pointing this out to me.
 3676 
 3677 2002-02-21  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3678 
 3679 	* win/makefile.vc:
 3680 	* win/rules.vc:  Added a new "loimpact" option that sets the
 3681 	-ws:aggressive linker option. Off by default. It's said to keep the
 3682 	heap use low at the expense of alloc speed.
 3683 
 3684 	* win/tclAppInit.c: Changed #include "tcl.h" to be tclPort.h to remove
 3685 	the raw windows.h include. tclPort.h brings in windows.h already and
 3686 	lessens the pre-compiled-header mush and the randomly useless #pragma
 3687 	comment (lib,...) references throughout the big windows.h tree (as
 3688 	observed at high linker warning levels).
 3689 
 3690 2002-02-21  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 3691 
 3692 	* generic/tcl.h: Better guessing of LP64/ILP32 architecture, but now
 3693 	sensitive to presence of (suitable) <limits.h>
 3694 
 3695 2002-02-20  Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3696 
 3697 	* generic/tcl.decls (Tcl_RegExpRange,Tcl_GetIndexFromObjStruct):
 3698 	Overlooked a few source incompatibilities. Now using CONST84.
 3699 	* generic/tclDecls.h: make genstubs
 3700 	* generic/tcl.h (Tcl_CmdObjTraceProc): silence warning from Sun
 3701 	Workshop compiler.
 3702 
 3703 2002-02-20  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3704 
 3705 	* win/buildall.vc.bat:
 3706 	* win/makefile.vc:
 3707 	* win/rules.vc: General clean-ups. Added compiler and linker tests for
 3708 	a) the pentium 0x0F errata, b) optimizing (not all have this), and c)
 3709 	linker v6 section alignment confusion. All these are tested first to
 3710 	make sure any D4002 or LNK1117 warnings aren't displayed. The pentium
 3711 	0x0F errata is a recommended switch. The v5 linker's section alignment
 3712 	default is 512, but the v6 linker was changed to 4096 in an attempt to
 3713 	speed loading on Win98. I changed the default to always be 512 across
 3714 	both linkers, unless linking statically, then 4096 is used for the
 3715 	claimed speed effect. Using a 512 alignment saves 12k bytes of dead
 3716 	space in the DLL.
 3717 
 3718 	Added IA64 B-stepping errata switch when the compiler supports it.
 3719 
 3720 	Added profiling to $(lflags) when requested and also removed the
 3721 	explict -entry option as the default works fine as is.
 3722 
 3723 	Removed win/tclWinInit.c from the special case section to let it use
 3724 	the common implicit rule as the $(EXTFLAGS) macro it had was never
 3725 	referenced anywhere.
 3726 
 3727 2002-02-20  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 3728 
 3729 	* generic/tcl.h: Added code to guess the correct settings for
 3730 	TCL_WIDE_INT_IS_LONG and TCL_WIDE_INT_TYPE when configure doesn't tell
 3731 	us them, as can happen with extensions.
 3732 
 3733 2002-02-19  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 3734 
 3735 	* doc/format.n: Updated docs to list the specification.
 3736 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_FormatObjCmd): Made behaviour on 64-bit
 3737 	platforms correctly meet the specification, that %d works with the
 3738 	native word-sized integer, instead of trying to guess (wrongly)
 3739 	from the value being passed.
 3740 
 3741 2002-02-19  Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3742 
 3743 	* changes: First draft of updated changes for 8.4a4 release.
 3744 
 3745 2002-02-15  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3746 
 3747 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h: add strtoll/strtoull declarations for
 3748 	platforms that do not define them.
 3749 
 3750 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (STRING_AT): removed ptrdiff_t cast and
 3751 	use of VOID* in default case (GNU-ism).
 3752 
 3753 2002-02-15  Kevin Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 3754 
 3755 	* compat/strtoll.c:
 3756 	* compat/strtoul.c:
 3757 	* compat/strtoull.c:
 3758 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 3759 	* generic/tclPosixStr.c:

 3761 	* generic/tclTestObj.c:
 3762 	* tests/get.test:
 3763 	* win/Makefile.vc: Further tweaks to the TIP 72 patch to make it
 3764 	compile under VC++.
 3765 
 3766 2002-02-15  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3767 
 3768 	* tclExecute.c:
 3769 	* tclIOGT.c:
 3770 	* tclIndexObj.c: Touchups to the TIP 72 patch to make it compileable
 3771 	under Windows again. The changes are not complete, there is one nasty
 3772 	regarding _stati64
 3773 
 3774 2002-02-15  Donal K. Fellows  <fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk>
 3775 
 3776 	+----------------------+
 3777 	| TIP #72 IMPLEMENTED. |
 3778 	+----------------------+
 3779 
 3780 	There are a lot of changes from this TIP, so please see
 3781 	http://purl.org/tcl/tip/72.html for discussion of
 3782 	backward-compatibility issues, but the main ones modifications are in:
 3783 
 3784 	* generic/tcl.h: New types.
 3785 	* generic/tcl.decls: New public functions.
 3786 	* generic/tclExecute.c: 64-bit aware bytecode engine.
 3787 	* generic/tclBinary.c: 64-bit handling in [binary] command.
 3788 	* generic/tclScan.c: 64-bit handling in [scan] command.
 3789 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c: 64-bit handling in [file] and [format]
 3790 	commands.
 3791 	* generic/tclBasic.c: New "wordSize" entry in ::tcl_platform.
 3792 	* generic/tclFCmd.c: Large-file support (with many consequences.)
 3793 	* generic/tclIO.c: Large-file support (with many consequences.)
 3794 	* compat/strtoll.c, compat/strtoull.c: New support functions.
 3795 	* unix/tcl.m4, unix/configure: 64-bit support and greatly enhanced
 3796 	cacheing.
 3797 
 3798 	Most other changes, including all those in doc/* and test/* as well as
 3799 	the majority in the platform directories, follow on from these.
 3800 
 3801 	Also coming out of the woodwork:
 3802 	* generic/tclIndex.c: Better support for Cray PVP.
 3803 	* win/tclWinMtherr.c: Better Borland support.
 3804 
 3805 	Note that, in a number of places through the Unix part of the platform
 3806 	support, there are Tcl_Platform* references. These are expanded into
 3807 	the correct way to call that particular underlying function, i.e. with
 3808 	or without a '64' suffix, and should be used by people working on the
 3809 	core in preference to the API functions they overlay so that the code
 3810 	remains portable depending on the presence or absence of 64-bit
 3811 	support on the underlying platform.
 3812 
 3813 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***: Extracted from the TIP
 3814 
 3815 	SUMMARY OF INCOMPATIBILITIES AND FIXES
 3816 	======================================
 3817 
 3818 	The behaviour of expressions containing constants that appear positive
 3819 	but which have a negative internal representation will change, as
 3820 	these will now usually be interpreted as wide integers. This is always
 3821 	fixable by replacing the constant with int(constant).
 3822 
 3823 	Extensions creating new channel types will need to be altered as
 3824 	different types are now in use in those areas. The change to the
 3825 	declaration of Tcl_FSStat and Tcl_FSLstat (which are the new preferred
 3826 	API in any case) are less serious as no non-alpha releases have been
 3827 	made yet with those API functions.
 3828 
 3829 	Scripts that are lax about the use of the l modifier in format and
 3830 	scan will probably need to be rewritten. This should be very uncommon
 3831 	though as previously it had absolutely no effect.
 3832 
 3833 	Extensions that create new math functions that take more than one
 3834 	argument will need to be recompiled (the size of Tcl_Value changes),
 3835 	and functions that accept arguments of any type (TCL_EITHER) will need
 3836 	to be rewritten to handle wide integer values. (I do not expect this
 3837 	to affect many extensions at all.)
 3838 
 3839 2002-02-14  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3840 
 3841 	* generic/tclIOCmd.c (Tcl_GetsObjCmd): Trivial fix for [Bug 517503], a
 3842 	memory leak reported by Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>. The leak
 3843 	happens if an error occurs for "set var [gets $chan]" and leak one
 3844 	empty object.
 3845 
 3846 2002-02-12  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3847 
 3848 	* djgpp/ (new directory)
 3849 	* djgpp/Makefile (new):
 3850 	* unix/tclAppInit.c:
 3851 	* unix/tclMtherr.c:
 3852 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c:
 3853 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
 3854 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c:
 3855 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:  Early stage of DJGPP support for building Tcl
 3856 	on DOS. Dynamic loading isn't working, yet. Requires watt32 for the
 3857 	TCP/IP stack. No autoconf, yet. Barely tested, but makes a working exe
 3858 	that runs Tcl in protected-mode, flat memory. [exec] and pipes will
 3859 	need the most work as multi-tasking on DOS has to be carefully.
 3860 
 3861 2002-02-10  Kevin Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 3862 
 3863 	* doc/CrtObjCmd.3:
 3864 	* doc/CrtTrace.3:
 3865 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 3866 	* generic/tcl.h:
 3867 	* generic/tclBasic.c:
 3868 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 3869 	* generic/tclTest.c:
 3870 	* tests/basic.test: Added Tcl_CreateObjTrace,
 3871 	Tcl_GetCommandInfoFromToken and Tcl_SetCommandInfoFromToken.
 3872 	(TIPs #32 and #79.)
 3873 
 3874 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
 3875 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: Regenerated Stubs tables.
 3876 
 3877 2002-02-08  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3878 
 3879 	* unix/configure:
 3880 	* unix/tcl.m4: added -pthread for FreeBSD to EXTRA_CFLAGS and
 3881 	LDFLAGS. Also triggered nodots only for FreeBSD-3. Added
 3882 	AC_DEFINE(_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS) for Solaris.
 3883 
 3884 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:
 3885 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c: added thread-safe versions of readdir,
 3886 	localtime, gmtime and inet_ntoa for threaded build. (jgdavidson)
 3887 
 3888 	* generic/tclScan.c (Tcl_ScanObjCmd): prevented ckfree being called on
 3889 	a pointer to NULL.
 3890 
 3891 2002-02-07  Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3892 
 3893 	* doc/DString.3:
 3894 	* doc/Encoding.3:
 3895 	* doc/GetCwd.3:
 3896 	* doc/SplitPath.3:
 3897 	* doc/Translate.3:

 3910 	* unix/tclUnixPipe.c:
 3911 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c:
 3912 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c:
 3913 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 3914 	* win/tclWinInit.c: Partial TIP 27 rollback. Following routines
 3915 	restored to return (char *): Tcl_DStringAppend,
 3916 	Tcl_DStringAppendElement, Tcl_JoinPath, Tcl_TranslateFileName,
 3917 	Tcl_ExternalToUtfDString, Tcl_UtfToExternalDString,
 3918 	Tcl_UniCharToUtfDString, Tcl_GetCwd, Tcl_WinTCharToUtf. Also restored
 3919 	Tcl_WinUtfToTChar to return (TCHAR *) and Tcl_UtfToUniCharDString to
 3920 	return (Tcl_UniChar *). Modified some callers. This change recognizes
 3921 	that Tcl_DStrings are de-facto white-box objects.
 3922 
 3923 	* generic/tclDecls.h:
 3924 	* generic/tclPlatDecls.h: make genstubs
 3925 
 3926 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c: corrected use of C++-style comment.
 3927 
 3928 2002-02-06  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3929 
 3930 	* tests/scan.test:
 3931 	* generic/tclScan.c (Tcl_ScanObjCmd): corrected scan 0x... %x handling
 3932 	that didn't accept the 0x as a prelude to a base 16 number. [Bug
 3933 	495213]
 3934 
 3935 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileRegexpCmd): made early check for
 3936 	bad RE to stop checking further.
 3937 
 3938 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_RegsubObjCmd): added special case to search
 3939 	for simple 'string map' style regsub calls. Delayed creation of
 3940 	resultPtr object until an initial match is made, as the input string
 3941 	object can then be reused for no matches.
 3942 	(Tcl_StringObjCmd): optimization improvements to the STR_MAP
 3943 	algorithm for zero-length and nocase cases.
 3944 
 3945 	* tests/regexp.test:
 3946 	* tests/regexpComp.test: extra code coverage tests.
 3947 
 3948 	* tests/string.test: added 10.18 and 10.19 extra tests.
 3949 
 3950 	* generic/regc_locale.c (casecmp): slight performance improvement.
 3951 
 3952 2002-02-05  Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3953 
 3954 	* library/http/http.tcl:
 3955 	* library/http/pkgIndex.tcl:  Corrected use of http::error when
 3956 	::error was intended. Bump to http 2.4.2.
 3957 
 3958 2002-02-04  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3959 
 3960 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (FileOutputProc): Fixed [bug 465765] reported by
 3961 	Dale Talcott <daletalcott@users.sourceforge.net>. Avoid writing
 3962 	nothing into a file as STREAM based implementations will consider this
 3963 	a EOF (if the file is a pipe). Not done in the generic layer as this
 3964 	type of writing is actually useful to check the state of a socket.
 3965 
 3966 	* doc/open.n: Fixed [Bug 511540], added cross-reference to 'pid' as
 3967 	the command to use to retrieve the pid of a command pipeline created
 3968 	via 'open'.
 3969 
 3970 2002-02-01  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3971 
 3972 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_RegexpObjCmd): handle quirky about case
 3973 	earlier to avoid shimmering problem.
 3974 
 3975 2002-02-01  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3976 
 3977 	* tests/io.test: io-39.22 split into two tests, one platform
 3978 	dependent, the other not. -eofchar is not empty on the windows
 3979 	platform.
 3980 
 3981 2002-02-01  Vince Darley <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3982 
 3983 	* generic/tclTest.c: fix to picky windows compiler problem with the
 3984 	'MainLoop' function declaration.
 3985 
 3986 2002-01-31  Andreas Kupries  <andreas_kupries@users.sourceforge.net>
 3987 
 3988 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c: TIP 27: Applied patch fixing CONST warnings on
 3989 	behalf of Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>.
 3990 
 3991 2002-01-30  Don Porter <dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3992 
 3993 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 3994 	* generic/tcl.h:
 3995 	* generic/tclInt.h: For each interface identified in the TIP 27
 3996 	changes below as a POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY, the source of the
 3997 	incompatibility has been parameterized so that it can be removed. When
 3998 	compiling extension code against the Tcl header files, use the
 3999 	compiler flag -DUSE_NON_CONST to remove the irresolvable source
 4000 	incompatibilities introduced by the TIP 27 changes. Resolvable changes
 4001 	are left for extension authors to resolve.

 4003 
 4004 2002-01-30  Vince Darley <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4005 
 4006 	* doc/FileSystem.3: added documentation for 3 public functions which
 4007 	had been overlooked. [Bug 507701]

 4011 
 4012 	* tests/regexpComp.test:
 4013 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileRegexpCmd): enhanced to support
 4014 	-nocase and -- options.
 4015 
 4016 2002-01-28  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 4017 
 4018 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_LOAD_TCLCONFIG):
 4019 	* win/tcl.m4 (SC_LOAD_TCLCONFIG): Set TCL_LIB_SPEC, TCL_STUB_LIB_SPEC,
 4020 	and TCL_STUB_LIB_PATH to the values of TCL_BUILD_LIB_SPEC,
 4021 	TCL_BUILD_STUB_LIB_SPEC, and TCL_BUILD_STUB_LIB_PATH when tclConfig.sh
 4022 	is loaded from the build directory. A Tcl extension should make use of
 4023 	the non-build versions of these variables since they will work in both
 4024 	cases. This modification was described in TIP 34.
 4025 
 4026 2002-01-28  Jeff Hobbs  <jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 4027 
 4028 	* win/tclWinReg.c (regConnectRegistryProc,RecursiveDeleteKey)

 4033 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 4034 	* generic/tclBasic.c: added TclCompileRegexpCmd entry
 4035 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileStringCmd): corrected to return
 4036 	TCL_OUT_LINE_COMPILE instead of TCL_ERROR for parsing errors, so
 4037 	it only throws the error for runtime compile, in case the user
 4038 	modifies 'string'.
 4039 	(TclCompileRegexpCmd): first try at a byte-compiled regexp command. It
 4040 	handles static strings and ^$ bounded static strings.
 4041 	(TclCompileAppendCmd): made TclPushVarName call always use
 4042 	TCL_CREATE_VAR as numWords is always > 2 at that point.
 4043 
 4044 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode:INST_LIST): correct
 4045 	possibly dangerous decr in macro call.
 4046 
 4047 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpFindVariable): CONSTification touch-up
 4048 
 4049 	* win/tclWinReg.c (OpenSubKey): corrected bug introduced in
 4050 	CONSTification that dropped pointer reference.
 4051 
 4052 	* ChangeLog.2000 (new file):
 4053 	* ChangeLog: broke changes from 2000 into ChangeLog.2000 to reduce
 4054 	size of the main ChangeLog.

 4056 2002-01-28  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4057

 4085 	Make -eofchar and -translation options read only for server sockets.
 4086 	[Bug 496733]
 4087 
 4088 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_GetChannelOption, Tcl_SetChannelOption):
 4089 	Instead of returning nothing for the -translation option on a server
 4090 	socket, always return "auto". Return the empty string enclosed in
 4091 	quotes for the -eofchar option on a server socket. Fixup -eofchar
 4092 	usage message so that it matches the implementation.
 4093 	* tests/io.test: Add -eofchar tests and -translation tests to ensure
 4094 	options are read only on server sockets.
 4095 	* tests/socket.test: Update tests to account for -eofchar and

 4306 
 4307 	* generic/tclIO.c (WriteChars): Fix for [Bug 506297], reported by
 4308 	Martin Forssen <ruric@users.sourceforge.net>. The encoding chosen in
 4309 	the script exposing the bug writes out three intro characters when
 4310 	TCL_ENCODING_START is set, but does not consume any input as
 4311 	TCL_ENCODING_END is cleared. As some output was generated the
 4312 	enclosing loop calls UtfToExternal again, again with START set. Three
 4313 	more characters in the out and still no use of input ... To break this
 4314 	infinite loop we remove TCL_ENCODING_START from the set of flags after
 4315 	the first call (no condition is required, the later calls remove an
 4316 	unset flag, which is a no-op). This causes the subsequent calls to
 4317 	UtfToExternal to consume and convert the actual input.

 4352 	* generic/tclIOCmd.c (Tcl_GetsObjCmd): Fixed [Bug 504642] as reported
 4353 	by Brian Griffin <bgriffin@users.sourceforge.net>, using his
 4354 	patch. Before the patch the generic I/O layer held an unannounced
 4355 	reference to the interp result to store the read line into. This
 4356 	unfortunately has disastrous results if the channel driver executes a
 4357 	tcl script to perform its operation, this freeing the interp
 4358 	result. In that case we are dereferencing essentially a dangling
 4359 	reference. It is not truly dangling because the object is in the free
 4360 	list, but this only causes us to smash the free list and have the
 4361 	error occur later somewhere else. The patch simply creates a new
 4362 	object for the line and later sets it into the interp result when we
 4363 	are done with reading.

 4634 
 4635 	* doc/Tcl_Main.3:
 4636 	* generic/tclMain.c:  Substantial rewrite and expanded documentation
 4637 	of Tcl_Main to correct a number of bugs and flaws:
 4638 
 4639 	  - Interactive Tcl_Main can now enter a main loop, exit that loop and
 4640 	    continue interactive operations. The loop may even exit in the
 4641 	    midst of interactive command typing without loss of the partial
 4642 	    command. [Bugs 486453, 474131]
 4643 	  - Tcl_Main now gracefully handles deletion of its master
 4644 	    interpreter.
 4645 	  - Interactive Tcl_Main can now operate with non-blocking stdin
 4646 	  - Interactive Tcl_Main can now detect EOF on stdin even in
 4647 	    mid-command. [Bug 491341]
 4648 	  - Added VFS-aware internal routines for managing the startup script
 4649 	    selection.
 4650 	  - Tcl variable 'tcl_interactive' is now linked to C variable 'tty'
 4651 	    so that one can disable/enable interactive prompts at the script
 4652 	    level when there is no startup script. This is meant for use by
 4653 	    the test suite.
 4654 	  - Consistent use of the Tcl libraries standard channels as returned
 4655 	    by Tcl_GetStdChannel(); as opposed to the channels named 'stdin',
 4656 	    'stdout', and 'stderr' in the master interp, which can be
 4657 	    different or unavailable.
 4658 	  - Tcl_Main now calls Tcl_Exit() if evaluation of [exit] in the
 4659 	    master interpreter returns, assuring Tcl_Main does not return.
 4660 	  - Documented Tcl_Main's absence from public stub table
 4661 	  - Documented that Tcl_Main does not return.
 4662 	  - Documented Tcl variables set by Tcl_Main.
 4663 	  - All prompts are done from a single procedure, Prompt.
 4664 	  - Use of Tcl_Obj-enabled interfaces everywhere.
 4665 
 4666 	* generic/tclInt.decls (TclGetStartupScriptPath,
 4667 	(TclSetStartupScriptPath): New internal VFS-aware routines for
 4668 	managing the startup script of Tcl_Main.
 4669 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:

 4718 	only add a few instruction cycles (one function call and a few
 4719 	derefs/assigns per list per iteration, with no change in the
 4720 	number of tests) and if something odd *is* going on, the code is
 4721 	now far more robust.
