    1 2004-12-29  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
    2 
    3 	* win/tcl.m4, win/configure: update MSVC CFLAGS_OPT to -O2, remove -Gs
    4 	(included in -O2) and -GD (outdated). Use "link -lib" instead of "lib"
    5 	binary and remove -YX for MSVC7 portability. Add -fomit-frame-pointer
    6 	for gcc OPT compiles. [Bug 1092952, 1091967] Align LIBS_GUI with Tk
    7 	head needs.

    9 2004-12-29  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
   10 
   11 	* generic/tclDate.c: Regen
   12 	* generic/tclGetDate.y (TclDatelex): Fixed a problem where a
   13 	four-digit group with >=2 leading zeroes appeared to be a two-digit
   14 	group, leading to misinterpreting the time 0012 as 1200. [Bug 1090413]
   15 	* library/clock.tcl: Added code to interpret correctly months outside
   16 	the range 01-12 as reduced modulo 12 with a corresponding adjustment
   17 	to the year. [Bug 1092789]
   18 	* tests/clock.test: Added regression test cases for the above two bugs
   19 	* unix/Makefile.in: Added --no-lines to the 'bison' command line to
   20 	* win/Makefile.in: help constrain the number of diffs in a cvs checkin
   21 
   22 2004-12-24  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
   23 
   24 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
   25 	* generic/tclCompile.h:
   26 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
   27 	* generic/tclInt.h:
   28 	* generic/tclLiteral.c:
   29 	* generic/tclProc.c:
   30 	Avoid sharing cmdName literals accross namespaces, and generalise
   31 	usage of the TclRegisterNewLiteral macro. [Patch 1090905]
   32 
   33 2004-12-20  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
   34 
   35 	* generic/tclCompile.c: moved TclInitCompiledLocals to tclProc.c
   36 	* generic/tclProc.c: new static InitCompiledLocals to allow for a
   37 	single pass over the proc's arguments at proc load time (instead of
   38 	two as previously). TclObjInterpProc() now allocates the
   39 	compiledLocals on the tcl execution stack, using the new
   40 	TclStackAlloc/Free functions.
   41 
   42 2004-12-16  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
   43 
   44 	* generic/tclInterp.c (Tcl_LimitSetTime, TimeLimitCallback):
   45 	(TclLimitRemoveAllHandlers, TclInitLimitSupport): Set a timer event to
   46 	trigger when the time limit runs out. All the time limit actually does
   47 	is check to see if the time limit has been exceeded, but this is
   48 	enough to fix [Bug 1085023].
   49 	* generic/tclInt.h (struct Interp): Added a field to hold the token
   50 	for the timer event handler associated with the current time limit.
   51 	* generic/tclEvent.c (Tcl_UpdateObjCmd, Tcl_VwaitObjCmd): Add error
   52 	message when limit exceeded.
   53 	* tests/interp.test (interp-34.[89]): Check that time limits handle
   54 	the two cases reported in [Bug 1085023]
   55 
   56 	* generic/tclTimer.c (TclCreateAbsoluteTimerHandler): New internal
   57 	function that allows setting a timer handler that will be triggered at
   58 	(or after) a specific time instead of at some number of milliseconds
   59 	in the future. This is a candidate for future exposure via a TIP.
   60 
   61 2004-12-15  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
   62 
   63 	* generic/tclBasic.c:
   64 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
   65 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
   66 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
   67 	* generic/tclNamesp.c:
   68 	* generic/tclProc.c:
   69 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
   70 	* generic/tclTest.c: Added two new functions to allocate memory from
   71 	the execution stack (TclStackAlloc, TclStackFree). Added functions
   72 	TclPushStackFrame and TclPopStackFrame that do the work of
   73 	Tcl_PushCallFrame and Tcl_PopCallFrame, but using frames allocated in
   74 	the execution stack - i.e., heap instead of C-stack. The core uses
   75 	these two new functions exclusively; the old ones remain for backwards
   76 	compat, as at least two popular extensions (itcl, xotcl) are known to
   77 	use them.
   78 
   79 2004-12-14  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
   80 
   81 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c:
   82 	* generic/tclInt.h:
   83 	* generic/tclProc.c:
   84 	* generic/tclVar.c: changing the isProcCallFrame field of the
   85 	CallFrame struct from a 0/1 field to flags. Should be perfectly
   86 	backwards compatible.
   87 
   88 2004-12-14  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
   89 
   90 	* unix/configure.in: Added special processing to remove "$U" from
   91 	libraries in the LIBOBJS value. This is an auto-make-ism we need to
   92 	avoid. [Bug 1081541]
   93 
   94 	* unix/configure: autoconf-2.57
   95 
   96 2004-12-13  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
   97 
   98 	* generic/tcl.h: Restored extern "C" guards so that C++ code sees
   99 	function pointer typedef linkage consistent with earlier Tcl releases.
  100 	[Bug 1082349]
  101 
  102 	* generic/tclEncoding.c: Plugged some memory leaks. Thanks to Rolf Ade
  103 	* generic/tclUtil.c:	 for reports and testing [Bug 1083082]
  104 
  105 2004-12-13  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  106 
  107 	* doc/clock.n: Clarify that the [clock scan] command does not accept
  108 	the full range of ISO8601 point-in-time formats. [Bug 1075433]
  109 
  110 2004-12-12  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
  111 
  112 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclArrayObjCmd - ARRAY_NAMES): leaking an object
  113 	[Bug 1084111] - thanks to Rolf Ade.
  114 
  115 2004-12-12  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
  116 
  117 	* generic/tclObj.c (TclSetCmdNameObj): special handling for fully
  118 	qualified command names (as in fix [Patch 456668]).
  119 
  120 2004-12-11  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
  121 
  122 	* generic/tclInt.h:
  123 	* generic/tclNamesp.c: converting the static function
  124 	GetNamespaceFromObj() to MODULE_SCOPE TclGetNamespaceFromObj().
  125 
  126 2004-12-10  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  127 
  128 	* tools/tcl.wse.in, unix/tcl.spec, win/README.binary, README:
  129 	* win/configure.in, unix/configure.in, generic/tcl.h:
  130 	Bumped version number to 8.5a3 to distinguish HEAD of CVS development
  131 	from the recent 8.5a2 release.
  132 
  133 2004-12-10  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
  134 
  135 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclInitCompiledLocals):
  136 	* generic/tclCompile.h:
  137 	* generic/tclInt.h:
  138 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclObjInterpProc, TclCreateProc): optimised
  139 	loops that initialise a proc's arguments and compiled local
  140 	variables, removing tests from inner loops.
  141 
  142 2004-12-10  Donal K. Fellows  <dkf@users.sf.net>
  143 
  144 	* generic/tclInt.h: Move ensemble API decls here from tclNamesp.c
  145 
  146 2004-12-09  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  147 
  148 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (TclMakeEnsembleCmd, TclSetEnsemble*)
  149 	(TclSetEnsemble*, TclFindEnsemble): Build an internal API for creating
  150 	and manipulating ensembles; they can be deleted using the normal
  151 	command-deletion API.
  152 
  153 	* doc/Async.3: Reword for better grammar, better nroff and get the
  154 	flag name right. (Reported by David Welton.)
  155 
  156 2004-12-07  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  157 
  158 	* tests/unixInit.test (2.1-4): Added constraints so that when a value
  159 	of TCL_LIBRARY is required for process initialization, we skip the
  160 	tests that mess with that value.
  161 
  162 2004-12-07  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  163 
  164 	*** 8.5a2 TAGGED FOR RELEASE ***
  165 
  166 	* unix/Makefile.in: add library/{tzdata,msgs} to dist target (kbk)
  167 
  168 	* doc/foreach.n: Adjust tabs to be friendlier to some HTML
  169 	converters. [Bug 1078760]
  170 
  171 2004-12-06  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  172 
  173 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c (NotifierThreadProc): init numFdBits
  174 	[Bug 1079286]
  175 
  176 	* doc/error.n, doc/SaveResult.3, doc/Thread.3: minor nroff typos
  177 
  178 2004-12-06  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  179 
  180 	* tests/safe.test:	Trim auto_path to improve performance [1080039]
  181 
  182 	* tests/msgcat.test:	makeFile/removeFile cleanup [1079117]
  183 
  184 2004-12-04  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  185 
  186 	* generic/tclEncoding.c:	Different fix for [Bug 1077005].
  187 	* generic/tclEvent.c:	Broke apart TclpSetInitialEncodings() on
  188 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Windows into TclpSetInterfaces(), that is
  189 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c:	fundamentally essential, and the initialization
  190 	* win/tclWinInit.c:	of the system encoding, which is not. Made
  191 	the TclpSetInterfaces call part of TclInitSubsystems so it cannot be
  192 	overlooked.
  193 
  194 2004-12-03  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  195 
  196 	* changes: updated for 8.5a2 release
  197 
  198 2004-12-02  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  199 
  200 	* generic/tclUtil.c (TclSetProcessGlobalValue): Handle the case where
  201 	a ProcessGlobalValue might be assigned to itself.
  202 
  203 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (MakeFileMap): Correct refcounting errors
  204 	managing values returned by TclPathPart (with refCount of 1!) that led
  205 	to a memory leak. [Bug 1077474].
  206 
  207 2004-12-02  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
  208 
  209 	* generic/tclPathObj.c:  fix and new tests for [Bug 1074671] to ensure
  210 	* tests/fileSystem.test: tilde paths are not returned specially by
  211 	'glob'.
  212 
  213 2004-12-02  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  214 
  215 	* win/Makefile.in: Added a 'sed' in the setting of ROOT_DIR_NATIVE to
  216 	compensate for a bug in cygpath (at least version 1.36) that leaves a
  217 	trailing backslash on the end of the converted path.
  218 
  219 2004-12-02  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  220 
  221 	* generic/tclInterp.c (Alias,Target,Master): Rewrote these so that the
  222 	aliases that refer to an interpreter are stored in a list and not a
  223 	hashtable (which was only ever a convenience, and forced the use of a
  224 	global mutex to generate keys!) [FRQ 1077210]
  225 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (numNsCreated): Moved into thread-local storage
  226 	to remove a global mutex. [FRQ 1077210]
  227 
  228 2004-12-01  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  229 
  230 	* generic/tclUtil.c (TclGetProcessGlobalValue): Narrowed the scope of
  231 	mutex locks.
  232 
  233 	* generic/tclUtil.c:		Updated Tcl_GetNameOfExecutable() to
  234 	* generic/tclEncoding.c:	make use of a ProcessGlobalValue for
  235 	* generic/tclEvent.c:		storing the executable name. Added
  236 	internal routines Tcl(Get|Set)ObjNameOfExecutable() to access that
  237 	storage in Tcl_Obj, rather than string format.
  238 
  239 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:	Rewrote TclpFindExecutable() to use
  240 	* win/tclWinFile.c:	TclSetObjNameOfExecutable to store the
  241 	executable name it computes.
  242 
  243 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Added internal stub entries for
  244 	* generic/tclInt.decls: TclpFindExecutable and
  245 	Tcl(Get|Set)ObjNameOfExecutable.
  246 
  247 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h: make genstubs
  248 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  249 
  250 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c:	Retrieve executable name in Tcl_Obj form
  251 	* win/tclWinPipe.c:	instead of string form.
  252 
  253 	* unix/tclUnixTest.c:	Update [testfindexecutable] command to use new
  254 	internal interfaces.
  255 
  256 	* generic/tclEncoding.c:	Moved TclpSetInitialEncodings() call
  257 	from Tcl_FindExecutable() into TclInitEncodingSubsystem(). This is
  258 	important on Windows where it establishes whether the "ascii" or
  259 	"unicode" set of system routines will be used, and that needs to be
  260 	done earlier to support filesystem operations. [Bug 1077005]
  261 
  262 2004-12-01  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  263 
  264 	* tests/winDde.test: Rewritten to use tcltest2 features more
  265 	thoroughly (reducing the [catch] count!) and fix the problem with
  266 	winDde-6.1 being out of synch with the implementation.
  267 
  268 2004-11-30  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  269 
  270 	* library/init.tcl ([unknown]): Restored the save/restore of the
  271 	variables ::errorCode and ::errorInfo. This is needed when the
  272 	[::bgerror] command is auto-loaded (as it is by Tk).
  273 
  274 	Patch 976520 reworks several of the details involved with
  275 	startup/initialization of the Tcl library, focused on the activities
  276 	of Tcl_FindExecutable().
  277 
  278 	* generic/tclIO.c:	Removed bogus claim in comment that encoding
  279 	"iso8859-1" is "built-in" to Tcl.
  280 
  281 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Created a new struct ProcessGlobalValue,
  282 	* generic/tclUtil.c:	routines Tcl(Get|Set)ProcessGlobalValue, and
  283 	function type TclInitProcessGlobalValueProc. Together, these take care
  284 	of the housekeeping for "values" (things that can be held in a
  285 	Tcl_Obj) that are global across a whole process. That is, they are
  286 	shared among multiple threads, and epoch and mutex protection must
  287 	govern the validity of cached copies maintained in each thread.
  288 
  289 	* generic/tclNotify.c:	Modified TclInitNotifier() to tolerate being
  290 	called multiple times in the same thread.
  291 	* generic/tclEvent.c:	Dropped the unused argv0 argument to
  292 	TclInitSubsystems(). Removed machinery to unsure only one
  293 	TclInitNotifier() call per thread, now that that is safe. Converted
  294 	Tcl(Get|Set)LibraryPath to use a ProcessGlobalValue, and moved them to
  295 	tclEncoding.c.
  296 	* generic/tclBasic.c:	Updated caller.
  297 
  298 	* generic/tclInt.h:	TclpFindExecutable now returns void.
  299 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
  300 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
  301 	* win/tclWinPipe.c:
  302 
  303 	* generic/tclEncoding.c: Built new encoding search initialization on a
  304 	foundation of ProcessGlobalValues, exposing new routines
  305 	Tcl(Get|Set)EncodingSearchPath. A cache of a map from encoding name to
  306 	directory pathname keeps track of where encodings are available for
  307 	loading. Tcl_FindExecutable greatly simplified into just three
  308 	function calls. The "library path" is now misnamed, as its only
  309 	remaining purpose is as a foundation for the default encoding search
  310 	path.
  311 
  312 	* generic/tclInterp.c:	Inlined the initScript that is evaluated by
  313 	Tcl_Init(). Added verification after initScript evaluation that Tcl
  314 	can find its installed *.enc files, and that it has initialized
  315 	[encoding system] in agreement with what the environment expects.
  316 	[tclInit] no longer driven by the value of $::tcl_libPath; it largely
  317 	constructs its own search path now, rather than attempt to share one
  318 	with the encoding system.
  319 
  320 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c:	TclpSetInitialEncodings factored so that a new
  321 	* win/tclWinInit.c:	routine TclpGetEncodingNameFromEnvironment can
  322 	reveal that Tcl thinks the [encoding system] should be, even when an
  323 	incomplete encoding search path, or a missing *.enc file won't allow
  324 	that initialization to succeed. TclpInitLibraryPath reworked as an
  325 	initializer of a ProcessGlobalValue.
  326 
  327 	* unix/tclUnixTest.c:	Update implementations of [testfindexecutable],
  328 	[testgetdefenc], and [testsetdefenc].
  329 
  330 	* tests/unixInit.test:	Corrected tests to operate properly even when
  331 	a value of TCL_LIBRARY is required to find encodings.
  332 
  333 	* generic/tclInt.decls: New internal stubs: TclGetEncodingSearchPath,
  334 	TclSetEncodingSearchPath, TclpGetEncodingNameFromEnvironment. These
  335 	are candidates for public exposure by future TIPs.
  336 
  337 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h: make genstubs
  338 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  339 
  340 	* generic/tclTest.c:	Updated [testencoding] to use
  341 	* tests/encoding.test:	Tcl(Get|Set)EncodingSearchPath.	 Updated tests.
  342 
  343 2004-11-30  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  344 
  345 	* library/clock.tcl: Corrected the regular expressions that match a
  346 	time zone to allow for time zones specified as +HH or -HH.
  347 	* tests/clock.test: Added regression test case for the above issue.
  348 	Thanks to Rolf Ade for reporting this issue [http://wiki.tcl.tk/13094]
  349 	* win/tclWinDde.c (Tcl_DdeObjCmd): Corrected a typo that caused a
  350 	compilation failure on VC++.
  351 
  352 2004-11-29  Andreas Kupries <andreask@activestate.com>
  353 
  354 	* win/Makefile.in (install-libraries): Brought entry '2004-10-26 Don
  355 	Porter (Tcl Modules)' into the windows world, actually the
  356 	win/configure buildsystem. The other windows buildsystems (.vc, .bc)
  357 	still have to be updated as well.
  358 
  359 2004-11-26  Andreas Kupries <andreask@activestate.com>
  360 
  361 	* win/tclWinDde.c (ExecuteRemoteObject): Removed bogus semicolon found
  362 	at the end of the header for the function definition, terminating it
  363 	early and preventing a compile. This is likely a fix for '2004-11-25
  364 	Donal'. I have to conclude that it is also unknown if the other
  365 	changes to this file actually pass the testsuite. Running testsuite
  366 	... They don't. winDde-6.1 fails. This is only a message discrepance,
  367 	i.e. not too bad. Leaving resolution of that to Pat and Donal.
  368 
  369 2004-11-26  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  370 
  371 	* library/auto.tcl (tcl_findLibrary): Made sure the uniquifying
  372 	operations on the search path does not also normalize. [Bug 1072136]
  373 
  374 2004-11-26  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  375 
  376 	* unix/configure.in: Simplify the code to check for correctness of
  377 	strstr, strtoul and strtod.
  378 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_TCL_CHECK_BROKEN_FUNC): Split a complex stanza out
  379 	of configure.in into its own function. Also force it to do the right
  380 	thing with cacheing of results of AC_TRY_RUN to deal with issue raised
  381 	in [Patch 1073524]
  382 
  383 	* doc/foreach.n: Added simple example. [FRQ 1073334]
  384 
  385 2004-11-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  386 
  387 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclObjInterpProc):	    Make it so that only
  388 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (Tcl_WrongNumArgs): [proc] instances do
  389 	* tests/indexObj.test (indexObj-5.7):	    quoting of their first
  390 	arguments, so keeping [Bug 942757] fixed and making [Bug 1066837] be
  391 	fixed as well. Done with a load of #ifdef-ery because this hack is so
  392 	ugly nobody should keep it around once Itcl's fixed.
  393 
  394 2004-11-25  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
  395 
  396 	* tests/tcltest.test: The order in which [glob] returns the file names
  397 	is undefined, so tests should not depend on it.
  398 
  399 2004-11-25  Zoran Vasiljevic <vasiljevic@users.sf.net>
  400 
  401 	* doc/Thread.3:
  402 	* doc/Notifier.3: Added changes from the core-8-4-branch
  403 
  404 2004-11-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  405 
  406 	* doc/dde.n: Synchronized the documentation of the commands with the
  407 	header of the docs and what the package actually does. Thanks to
  408 	Andreas Kupries for spotting this.
  409 	* win/tclWinDde.c (Tcl_DdeObjCmd): Much cleanup of argument parsing
  410 	code.
  411 
  412 2004-11-24  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  413 
  414 	* generic/tclPort.h: Relative include of tclWinPort.h returned as it
  415 	was requiring me set -I$(tcl_root)/win for my extensions that need to
  416 	include tclInt.h and doesn't appear to serve any purpose for windows
  417 	builds.
  418 
  419 2004-11-24  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  420 
  421 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_ENABLE_THREADS): Corrected bad check for 3-argument
  422 	readdir_r [Bug 1001325].
  423 	* unix/configure: Regenerated.
  424 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c: Corrected all uses of 'select' to manage their
  425 	masks using the FD_CLR, FD_ISSET, FD_SET, and FD_ZERO macros rather
  426 	than bit-whacking that failed under Solaris-Sparc-64. [Bug 1071807]
  427 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath): Removed unused vars 'pathc'
  428 	and 'pathv' that caused compilation problems on VC++ with
  429 	--enable-symbols.
  430 
  431 2004-11-24  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  432 
  433 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_ENABLE_THREADS): Corrected failure to determine the
  434 	number of arguments for readdir_r on SunOS systems. [Bug 1071701]
  435 
  436 	* unix/configure:	autoconf-2.57
  437 
  438 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoVarsCmd):	Corrected segfault in new
  439 	* tests/info.test (info-19.6):	trivial matching branch [Bug 1072654]
  440 
  441 2004-11-24  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  442 
  443 	* tools/man2html.tcl, tools/man2html1.tcl: Update to use Tcl 8.4.
  444 	* tools/man2html2.tcl: Fix broken .SS handling.
  445 
  446 2004-11-23  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  447 
  448 	* unix/Makefile.in: Add (commented-out) code to integrate tclConfig.h
  449 	into the dependency tree and 'make distclean'. [Bug 1068171]
  450 
  451 	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl_AppendResultVA): Remove call to
  452 	Tcl_GetStringResult to speed up repeated calls to Tcl_AppendResult
  453 	with the side effect that code that wants to access interp->result
  454 	should always call Tcl_GetStringResult first. See [Patch 1041072]
  455 	discussion for more details.
  456 
  457 2004-11-22  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
  458 
  459 	* unix/configure: Regen.
  460 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_TCL_64BIT_FLAGS): Define HAVE_TYPE_OFF64_T only when
  461 	off64_t, open64(), and lseek64() are defined. IRIX 5.3 is known to not
  462 	include an open64 function. [Bug 1030465]
  463 
  464 2004-11-22  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
  465 
  466 	* unix/configure: Regen.
  467 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_ENABLE_THREADS): Check for a 2 argument version of
  468 	readdir_r that is known to exists under IRIX 5.3.
  469 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c (TclpReaddir): Use either 2 arg or 3 arg version
  470 	of readdir_r. [Bug 1001325]
  471 
  472 2004-11-22  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  473 
  474 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath): Purged dead code that used
  475 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath):  to extend the "library
  476 	path". Search path construction for init.tcl is now done within the
  477 	[tclInit] proc.
  478 	* generic/tclInterp.c:	Restored several directories to the search
  479 	* tests/unixInit.test:	path used to locate init.tcl within [tclInit].
  480 	This change does not restore any directories to the encoding search
  481 	path, so should still avoid the price of an unreasonably large number
  482 	of filesystem accesses during encoding initialization at startup
  483 	[Bug 976438]
  484 
  485 2004-11-22  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
  486 
  487 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: fix and new test for [Bug 1043129] in the
  488 	* tests/fileSystem.test: treatment of backslashes in file join on
  489 	Windows.
  490 
  491 2004-11-21  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  492 
  493 	* doc/AddErrInfo.3:	Typo corrections (Thanks Daniel South).
  494 	* doc/interp.n:
  495 
  496 2004-11-19  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  497 
  498 	* doc/AddErrInfo.3:	Docs for Tcl_(Get|Set)ReturnOptions. [TIP 227]
  499 
  500 	* doc/AddErrInfo.3:
  501 	* doc/Async.3:		Documentation updates to replace references
  502 	* doc/BackgdErr.3:	to global variable ::errorInfo and ::errorCode
  503 	* doc/SaveResult.3:	and to the ::bgerror command with references
  504 	* doc/after.n:		to their preferred replacements, the
  505 	* doc/bgerror.n:	-errorinfo and -errorcode return options,
  506 	* doc/error.n:		the Tcl_*InterpState routines, and the
  507 	* doc/exec.n:		[interp bgerror] command.
  508 	* doc/exit.n:
  509 	* doc/fileevent.n:
  510 	* doc/interp.n:
  511 	* doc/return.n:
  512 	* doc/tclvars.n:
  513 	* doc/update.n:
  514 
  515 	* tests/unixInit.test: Removed "knownBug" constraints to prompt bug
  516 	fixing before 8.5a2 release.
  517 
  518 2004-11-19  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  519 
  520 	* macosx/Makefile:
  521 	* unix/configure.in:
  522 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (MacOSXGetLibraryPath): changed detection of tcl
  523 	framework build when determining tclLibPath from overloaded
  524 	TCL_LIBRARY to configuration define TCL_FRAMEWORK. [Bug 1068088]
  525 
  526 	* unix/configure: autoconf-2.57
  527 	* unix/tclConfig.h.in: autoheader-2.57
  528 
  529 2004-11-18  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  530 
  531 	* doc/SaveResult.3:	Documentation for Tcl_*InterpState (TIP 226).
  532 
  533 	* generic/tclEvent.c (HandleBgErrors):	Simplified program flow.
  534 
  535 	* tests/basic.test:	Updated functional (not testing) uses of
  536 	* tests/io.test:	[bgerror] to make use of [interp bgerror].
  537 	* tests/socket.test:
  538 	* tests/timer.test:
  539 
  540 	* tests/interp.test (interp-36.*):	[interp bgerror] tests.
  541 
  542 	* generic/tclInterp.c:	Corrected [interp bgerror] error messages.
  543 
  544 2004-11-18  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
  545 
  546 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_MANPAGES): Applied an improved version of
  547 	* unix/configure.in:		    [Patch 996085], that introduces
  548 	* unix/Makefile.in:		    --enable-man-suffix.
  549 
  550 	* unix/installManPage:		    added
  551 	* unix/mkLinks.tcl:		    removed
  552 	* unix/mkLinks:			    removed
  553 	* unix/configure:		    generated
  554 
  555 	* unix/Makefile.in:		    Don't install tclConfig.h .
  556 
  557 2004-11-17  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  558 
  559 	* unix/configure.in: The change below reveals that the public data
  560 	type Tcl_StatBuf relies on config information. For now, disabled the
  561 	use of the tclConfig.h file until its full impact on Tcl's interface
  562 	can be assessed.
  563 
  564 	* unix/configure:	autoconf-2.57
  565 
  566 	* generic/tcl.h:	Moved the #include "tclConfig.h" out of
  567 	* generic/tclInt.h:	tcl.h.	The config settings are not part of
  568 	* generic/tclPort.:	the public interface, and having it there
  569 	breaks compiled against uninstalled Tcl and extensions using
  570 	autoconf-2.5*.
  571 
  572 2004-11-16  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  573 
  574 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (TtySetOptionProc): fixed crash configuring
  575 	-ttycontrol on a channel. [Bug 1067708]
  576 
  577 2004-11-16  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  578 
  579 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (TclFSEpochOk): There were two code paths via
  580 	which the thread copy of filesystemEpoch could be synched with the
  581 	master copy, but only one kept the filesystem list cache up to date.
  582 	Fix routes everything through a single code path. [Bug 1035775].
  583 
  584 2004-11-16  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  585 
  586 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS): Stop architecture flags to 'ld' from
  587 	getting lost when [load] is disabled. [Bug 1016796]
  588 
  589 2004-11-16  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  590 
  591 	* generic/tcl.h:
  592 	* unix/configure.in: changed HAVE_CONFIG_H to HAVE_TCL_CONFIG_H.
  593 
  594 	* unix/configure: autoconf-2.57
  595 
  596 2004-11-15  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  597 
  598 	* generic/tclInt.h: Added comment warning that the old ERR_IN_PROGRESS
  599 	and ERROR_CODE_SET flag values should not be re-used for the sake of
  600 	those extensions that have accessed them.
  601 
  602 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_TraceObjCmd): Fixed Bug 1065378 which failed
  603 	* tests/trace.test (trace-33.1):	to permit a variable trace
  604 	created with [trace variable] to be destroyed with [trace remove].
  605 	Thanks to Keith Vetter for the report.
  606 
  607 2004-11-15  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  608 
  609 	* doc/tclvars.n: Added section to documentation on global variables
  610 	that are specific to tclsh and wish. [Patch 1065732]
  611 
  612 2004-11-12  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
  613 
  614 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (TableFromUtfProc): correct crash condition
  615 	when TCL_UTF_MAX == 6. [Bug 1004065]
  616 
  617 2004-11-12  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  618 
  619 	* doc/interp.n: Basic documentation of the TIP#221 API.
  620 
  621 2004-11-12  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  622 
  623 	TIP #221 IMPLEMENTATION
  624 	* generic/tclBasic.c:	Define [::tcl::Bgerror] in new interps.
  625 	* generic/tclEvent.c:	Update Tcl_BackgroundError to make use of the
  626 				registered [interp bgerror] command.
  627 	* generic/tclInterp.c:	New [interp bgerror] subcommand.
  628 	* tests/interp.test:	syntax tests updated.
  629 
  630 	TIP #226 IMPLEMENTATION
  631 	* generic/tcl.decls:	Stubs for Tcl_(Save|Restore|Discard)InterpState
  632 	* generic/tcl.h:	New public opaque type, Tcl_InterpState.
  633 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Drop old private declarations. Add
  634 				Tcl(Get|Set)BgErrorHandler
  635 	* generic/tclResult.c:	Tcl_*InterpState implementations.
  636 	* generic/tclDictObj.c:	Update callers.
  637 	* generic/tclIOGT.c:
  638 	* generic/tclTrace.c:
  639 
  640 	TIP #227 IMPLEMENTATION
  641 	* generic/tcl.decls:	Stubs for Tcl_(Get|Set)ReturnOptions.
  642 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Drop old private declarations.
  643 	* generic/tclResult.c:	Tcl_*ReturnOptions implementations.
  644 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c:	Update callers.
  645 	* generic/tclMain.c:
  646 
  647 	* generic/tclDecls.h:	make genstubs
  648 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
  649 
  650 	* unix/tclAppInit.c:	Removed tclConfig.h #include, now that tcl.h
  651 				takes care of it for us.
  652 
  653 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Moved verification of ptrdiff_t typedef from
  654 	* generic/tclExecute.c: multiple .c files into one common header where
  655 	* generic/tclVar.c:	it is verifiably after tclConfig.h inclusion.
  656 
  657 2004-11-12  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  658 
  659 	* generic/tcl.h:
  660 	* generic/tclInt.h:
  661 	* unix/Makefile.in: include tclConfig.h from tcl.h and install it as a
  662 	public header. Normalized compiler include path order to
  663 	-I${BUILD_DIR} -I${UNIX_DIR} -I${GENERIC_DIR}.
  664 
  665 	* unix/dltest/Makefile.in: add ${BUILD_DIR}/.. to include path to pick
  666 	up tclConfig.h.
  667 
  668 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c: moved check for HAVE_CFBUNDLE define after
  669 	#include "tclInt.h" to ensure tclConfig.h has been included.
  670 
  671 2004-11-12  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
  672 
  673 	* unix/config.h.in:
  674 	* unix/tclConfig.h.in:	renamed
  675 
  676 	* unix/Makefile.in:	Completed support for config header,
  677 	* unix/configure.in:	fixed building outside of the unix dir,
  678 	* unix/tclAppinit.c:	and reflected the name change of config.h.
  679 	* generic/tclInt.h:
  680 
  681 	* unix/configure:	generated
  682 
  683 2004-11-12  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  684 
  685 	* unix/config.h.in:	Allow configure to put all the C #defs into
  686 	* unix/configure.in:	a file (called config.h) so that Unix builds
  687 	* unix/tcl.m4:		now take far fewer lines of scrollback to
  688 	* unix/Makefile.in:	proceed (making it less likely that any errors
  689 	* generic/tclInt.h:	or warnings will get missed).
  690 	* unix/tclAppInit.c:	Part of the TIP#34 upgrades.
  691 
  692 	* unix/tcl.m4, unix/tclUnixPort.h: Check for pthread_attr_get_np in
  693 	<pthread.h> before forcing the use of <pthread_np.h> to make things
  694 	work on NetBSD 2.0. [Bug 1064882]
  695 
  696 	* doc/binary.n, doc/upvar.n: More minor fixes.
  697 
  698 2004-11-12  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  699 
  700 	* doc/CrtChannel.3:
  701 	* doc/Interp.3:
  702 	* doc/Limit.3:
  703 	* doc/binary.n:
  704 	* doc/dict.n:
  705 	* doc/tm.n:
  706 	* doc/upvar.n: fixed *roff errors uncovered by running 'make html'.
  707 
  708 	* tools/tcltk-man2html.tcl: added faked support for bullet point
  709 	lists, i.e. *nroff ".IP \(bu" syntax.
  710 
  711 2004-11-11  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
  712 
  713 	* tests/fCmd.test:
  714 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c (TraverseUnixTree): added option to rewind() the
  715 	readdir() loop whenever the source hierarchy has been modified by
  716 	traverseProc (e.g. by deleting files); this is required to ensure
  717 	complete traversal of the source hierarchy on certain filesystems like
  718 	HFS+. Added test for failing recursive delete on Mac OS X that was due
  719 	to this. [Bug 1034337]
  720 
  721 	* generic/tclListObj.c (Tcl_ListObjReplace): use memmove() instead of
  722 	manual copy loop to shift list elements. Decreases time spent in
  723 	Tcl_ListObjReplace() from 5.2% to 1.7% of overall runtime of tclbench
  724 	on a ppc 7455 (i.e. 200% speed increase). [Patch 1064243]
  725 
  726 	* generic/tclHash.c: hoisted some constant pointer dereferences out of
  727 	loops to eliminate redundant loads that the gcc optimizer didn't deal
  728 	with. Decreases time spend in Tcl_FindHashEntry() by 10% over a full
  729 	run of the tcl testuite on a ppc 7455. [Patch 1064243]
  730 
  731 	* tests/fileName.test:
  732 	* tests/fileSystem.test:
  733 	* tests/io.test:
  734 	* tests/msgcat.test:
  735 	* tests/tcltest.test:
  736 	* tests/unixInit.test: fixed bugs causing failures when running tests
  737 	with -tmpdir arg not set to working dir.
  738 
  739 	* macosx/Makefile: corrected path to html help inside framework.
  740 	Prevent parallel make from building several targets at the same time.
  741 
  742 	* macosx/tclMacOSXFCmd.c (struct fileinfobuf): force struct to be
  743 	packed to prevent failures when builing with -malign=natural.
  744 
  745 2004-11-10  Andreas Kupries <andreask@activestate.com>
  746 
  747 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c: [Bug 727786]. Exterminated the code marked
  748 	DEPRECATED. This code has not been used in over a year now, and we
  749 	have no complaints.
  750 
  751 2004-11-08  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  752 
  753 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: The pipe channel driver now respects the -blocking
  754 	option when closing is the same way the UNIX side works. This is to
  755 	avoid a hung shell when exiting due to open pipes that refuse to close
  756 	in a graceful manner.
  757 	* doc/open.n: Added a note about -blocking 0 and lack of exit status
  758 	as it had never been documented. [Bug 947693]
  759 
  760 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
  761 
  762 	Scripts that use async pipes on windows, must (like the UNIX side) set
  763 	-blocking to 1 before calling [close] to receive the exit status.
  764 
  765 2004-11-07  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  766 
  767 	* tests/winFile.test: added contraint to winFile-4.0 to prevent it
  768 	being run on NT4 [Bug 981829]
  769 
  770 2004-11-05  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  771 
  772 	* tests/reg.test: Major reorganization so that this file is much
  773 	easier for a normal Tcl maintainer to comprehend. The test flags are
  774 	still very cryptic, but they appear to have to be that way. The number
  775 	of skipped tests has increased, but now the skipped tests have much
  776 	more meaningful content.
  777 
  778 	* tests/tm.test (genpaths): Add a [file normalize] so we pick up
  779 	Windows drive letters, etc. [Bug 1053568]
  780

  783 	* changes:	Updates toward an 8.5a2 release.
  784 
  785 2004-11-03  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  786 
  787 	* library/clock.tcl (FreeScan): Fixed a bug where scanning "Monday"
  788 	with a base time other than midnight incorrectly carried the base time
  789 	forward.
  790 
  791 	* test/clock.test (clock-33.{5,5a}): Made the test failure more
  792 	informative.
  793 
  794 	* tests/clock.test (clock-34.{28,44,45,46}): Removed 'knownBug'
  795 	constraints from tests that no longer fail.
  796 
  797 	Thanks to Don Porter for reporting these.
  798 
  799 2004-11-03  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  800 
  801 	* generic/tcl.h:		Moved the preprocessor logic
  802 	* generic/tclDecls.h:		from tclInt.h of setting the
  803 	* generic/tclInt.h:		TCL_STORAGE_CLASS macro to the
  804 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:	tcl*Decls.h files now that no
  805 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h:	use of EXTERN is left in tclInt.h.
  806 	* generic/tclPlatDecls.h:	Proto for Tcl_Main moved in tcl.h
  807 	* win/tclWinPort.h:		to prior the inclusion of the Stubs
  808 	headers as they are now resetting TCL_STORAGE_CLASS. Removed
  809 	extraineous reset from tclWinPort.h. [Patch 1055668]
  810 
  811 	* generic/tclCompile.h: Removed extrainious reset of TCL_STORAGE_CLASS
  812 	missed in my last edit.
  813 
  814 2004-11-03  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  815 
  816 	* library/init.tcl ([unknown]): Corrections to the 2004-10-25 mods to
  817 	Aunt ??? in [unknown]. Flaws revealed by Itcl test suite, which still
  818 	apparently relies on this brokenness. Also added comment suggesting
  819 	the error message that any code using this hack *ought* to receive in
  820 	reply.
  821 
  822 	* generic/tclTrace.c (TclCallVarTraces):  Improved ability to debug
  823 	* tests/incr-old.test (incr-old-2.6):	  errors during variable
  824 	* tests/incr.test (incr-{1,2}.28):	  traces by preserving the
  825 	* tests/set.test (set-{2,4}.4):		  -errorinfo data.
  826 	* tests/trace.test (trace-33.1):	  [Bug 527164]
  827 
  828 2004-11-02  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  829 
  830 	* generic/tclInt.h: added a check for #ifdef __cplusplus around the
  831 	#define of MODULE_SCOPE. About the only time it would be problem is
  832 	when someone is statically linking to Tcl and accessing internals from
  833 	a C++ file and has name mangling issues from the lack of "C" after
  834 	'extern' [Patch 1055668].
  835 	* generic/tclCompile.h: Exchanged use of the EXTERN macro to the new
  836 	MODULE_SCOPE macro. Lowered exported internals count by 35. [Patch
  837 	1055668]
  838 	* win/tclWinInt.h:
  839 	* win/tclWinPort.h: exported internals dropped by a count of 14.
  840 	* generic/tclFileSystem.h: Added use of MODULE_SCOPE on protos.
  841 	* generic/tclRegexp.h: manipulating TCL_STORAGE_CLASS unnecessary.
  842 
  843 2004-11-02  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  844 
  845 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:		Corrected some misleading
  846 	* tests/tcltest.test (tcltest-26.1,2):	displays of ::errorInfo and
  847 	::errorCode information when the -setup, -body, and/or -cleanup scripts
  848 	return an unexpected return code. Thanks to Robert Seeger for the fix.
  849 	[RFE 1017151].
  850 
  851 2004-11-02  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  852 
  853 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Improved version of the
  854 	NaN fix from Miguel Sofer. [Bug 761471]
  855 
  856 2004-11-02  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
  857 
  858 	* library/tzdata/America/Cuiaba: Change to DST rules for
  859 	* library/tzdata/America/Havana: autumn of 2004.
  860 	[ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2004g.tar.gz]
  861 
  862 	* tools/tclZIC.tcl: Updated to be compatible with recent changes in
  863 	library/clock.tcl.
  864 
  865 2004-11-02  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
  866 
  867 	* win/tclWinFile.c: Simplify TclpUtime to use Tcl_FSGetNativePath, and
  868 	add comments.
  869 
  870 2004-11-02  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  871 
  872 	* generic/tclInt.h: Change uses of EXTERN to MODULE_SCOPE (defined in
  873 	this file too to be 'extern' if not overridden) as nothing declared in
  874 	tclInt.h is supposed to be visible outside the Tcl core. If there *is*
  875 	anything that extensions are actually using, we can open this up later
  876 	on. [Patch 1055668]
  877 
  878 	* doc/CrtChannel.3 (Tcl_GetChannelMode): Add synopsis. [Bug 1058446]
  879 
  880 2004-11-01  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
  881 
  882 	* win/tclWinFile.c (FromCTime, TclpUtime): Replaced a call to the
  883 	Posix 'utime' function with calls to Windows-API equivalents, to avoid
  884 	a bug where the VC++ versions misconvert times across a Daylight
  885 	Saving Time boundary. [Bug 926106]
  886 	* win/tclWinInt.h (TclWinProcs):
  887 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c (asciiProcs, unicodeProcs): Removed now-unused
  888 	reference to 'utime'.
  889 	* tests/cmdAH.test (cmdAH-24.12): Added test case for the above bug.
  890 
  891 2004-11-01  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  892 
  893 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Make INST_EQ and friends
  894 	handle NaN correctly in all cases. [Bug 761471]
  895 
  896 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (NamespaceInscopeCmd): Make the error message
  897 	generation the same as in NamespaceEvalCmd().
  898 	(Tcl_Import): Rationalized to use Tcl_EvalObjv().
  899 
  900 2004-10-31  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  901 
  902 	* tests/io.test (io-40.3): Convert umask2 test constraint into a form
  903 	that most people will be able to satisfy.
  904 
  905 	* tests/cmdAH.test (cmdAH-8.45): Removed broken test constraint. It
  906 	didn't do what it was intended to do, and it implied the other correct
  907 	constraint. [Bug 1053908]
  908 
  909 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoGlobalsCmd):
  910 	* tests/info.test (info-8.4): Strip leading global-namespace
  911 	specifiers from the pattern argument. [Bug 1057461]
  912 
  913 2004-10-30  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
  914 
  915 	* generic/clock.c: Replaced WIN32 macro with __WIN32__. [Bug 1054357].
  916 	Thanks to David Gravereaux for the patch.
  917 	* win/tclWinFile.c: Removed a long-standing bug that causes incorrect
  918 	conversion between file time and UTC time if the file time is recorded
  919 	in a different Daylight Saving Time status than the current one. [Bug
  920 	926106]
  921 
  922 2004-10-29  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  923 
  924 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Correct reaction to errors in the
  925 	obsolete processCmdLineArgsHook.	[Bug 1055673]
  926 	* library/tcltest/pkgIndex.tcl:	Bump to tcltest 2.2.7
  927 	* unix/Makefile.in:
  928 	* tests/all.tcl:	Update to use [tcltest::configure].
  929 
  930 2004-10-29  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
  931 
  932 	* library/tm.tcl (::tcl::tm::*): Use the core proc engine to generate
  933 	the wrong-num-args error messages for the path ensemble.
  934 
  935 	Ensembles can now (sometimes) rewrite the error messages of their
  936 	subcommands so they appear more like the arguments that the user
  937 	passed to the ensemble. Below is a description of changes involved in
  938 	doing this.
  939 
  940 	* tests/namespace.test (namespace-50.*): Tests of ensemble subcommand
  941 	error message rewriting.
  942 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclObjInterpProc): Make procedures implement
  943 	their wrong-num-args message using Tcl_WrongNumArgs instead of
  944 	something baked-at-home.
  945 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (TclIsEnsemble, NsEnsembleImplementationCmd):
  946 	Added test of ensemble-hood (available to rest of core) and made
  947 	ensembles set up the rewriting for Tcl_WrongNumArgs to take advantage
  948 	of.
  949 	* generic/tclInt.h (Interp.ensembleRewrite): Extra fields.
  950 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (Tcl_WrongNumArgs): Add knowledge of what is
  951 	going on in ensembles' command rewriting so this command can generate
  952 	the right error message itself.
  953 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp, TclEvalObjvInternal): Added
  954 	code to initialize (as empty) the rewriting fields and reset them when
  955 	we leak outside an ensemble implementation.
  956 
  957 2004-10-28  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
  958 
  959 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_START_CMD):
  960 	* tests/execute.test (execute-8.3): fix for execution stack corruption
  961 	[Bug 1055676]. Credit dgp for detective work and fix.
  962 
  963 2004-10-27  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
  964 
  965 	* tests/socket.test (socket-13.1):	Balanced [makeFile] and
  966 	[removeFile] commands.
  967 
  968 	* tests/clock.test:	Correct duplicate test names.
  969 	* tests/namespace.test:
  970 	* tests/string.test:
  971 	* tests/io.test (io-50.4):	Use namespace variables.
  972 
  973 2004-10-27  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
  974 
  975 	* generic/tclInt.decls:	  The following 9 functions were moved from
  976 	* generic/tclInt.h:	  tclInt.h to the private/int Stubs table for
  977 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:  use by the test suite. As tclTest.obj is
  978 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:  linked to the shell, these functions need
  979 	"blessed" status so as to always be exported from the library. Being
  980 	placed in the Stubs table guarantees this [Bug 1054748]:
  981 		TclpObjRemoveDirectory,	TclpObjCopyDirectory,
  982 		TclpObjCreateDirectory,	TclpObjDeleteFile,
  983 		TclpObjCopyFile,	TclpObjRenameFile,
  984 		TclpObjStat,		TclpObjAccess,
  985 		TclpOpenFileChannel
  986 
  987 	* tests/registry.test:	Fixed test files to load the correct
  988 	* tests/winDde.test:	registry and dde packages by using the info
  989 	* win/Makefile.in:	from makefiles to tell tcltest where to load
  990 	* win/makefile.vc:	them from. This avoids grabbing the wrong
  991 	package from $auto_path which might be the install point rather than
  992 	the dev location. Kudos to Jennifer Hom for adding -load and
  993 	-loadfile to the tcltest package. [Bug 926088]
  994 
  995 	* win/tclWinThrd.c (TclFinalizeLock): release the critical section
  996 	before deleting it. [Bug 731778]
  997 
  998 	* generic/tcl.h: Removed the file level 'extern "C" {' and the
  999 	coresponding closing block as it serves no purpose given that all the
 1000 	function prototypes have the proper extern usage already.
 1001 
 1002 	* unix/tclAppInit.c:	When built as tcltest, TclThread_Init was
 1003 	* win/tclAppInit.c:	getting called twice. First by Tcltest_Init,
 1004 	then again in Tcl_AppInit. The call from Tcl_AppInit is now removed.
 1005 
 1006 2004-10-27  Andreas Kupries <andreask@activestate.com>
 1007 
 1008 	* tests/tm.test:  Expanded on the testsuite entered by Donal.
 1009 	* library/tm.tcl: Even found bugs, these have been corrected.
 1010 
 1011 2004-10-26  Kevin Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
 1012 
 1013 	* tests/format.test (format-19.1): Additional regression test for [Bug
 1014 	868489].
 1015 
 1016 2004-10-27  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1017 
 1018 	* doc/*.n: Many small general documentation fixes.
 1019 
 1020 2004-10-26  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 1021 
 1022 	* generic/tclPipe.c (TclCleanupChildren): bad cast of resolvedPid
 1023 	caused PIDs on win95 to go negative. winpipe-4.2 brought this to the
 1024 	surface. Fixed with sprintf in place of TclFormatInt. Thanks to hgiese
 1025 	[Patch 767676]
 1026 
 1027 2004-10-26  Andreas Kupries <andreask@activestate.com>
 1028 
 1029 	* library/tm.tcl (::tcl::tm::Defaults): Added a second [file dirname]
 1030 	around the location of the executable. This fixes [Bug 1038705].
 1031 	Instable of a bogus "foo/bin/lib" we now have the correct "foo/lib" as
 1032 	a base path for modules.
 1033 
 1034 2004-10-26  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1035 
 1036 	* generic/tclParse.c (Tcl_SubstObj):	Fix for failed subst-12.3 test
 1037 	* tests/subst.test (subst-12.3-5):	More tests for Bug 1036649.
 1038 
 1039 	* unix/Makefile.in (install-libraries): Updated the installation of
 1040 	the http, msgcat, and tcltest packages to install as Tcl Modules on
 1041 	Unix systems. Other platform Makefiles still need updating. [Patch
 1042 	1054370]
 1043 
 1044 	* tests/basic.test:	Added missing constraints.
 1045 	* tests/compile.test:
 1046 	* tests/fileSystem.test:
 1047 
 1048 	* tests/init.test (init-2.8):	Updated to not rely on http package.
 1049 
 1050 2004-10-26  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1051 
 1052 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1053 	* generic/tclVar.c: removed more direct references to the VAR flags,
 1054 	replaced with access macros.
 1055 
 1056 2004-10-26  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1057 
 1058 	* doc/expr.n: Clarified that non-num/non-bool literals require
 1059 	quoting. [Bug 1027849]. Also listed booleans as acceptable values.
 1060 
 1061 2004-10-26  Kevin B. Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
 1062 
 1063 	* library/clock.tcl (FreeScan): Fixed a bug that caused relative days
 1064 	of the week in free-form [clock scan] to be evaluated in the wrong
 1065 	time zone.
 1066 	* tests/clock.test (clock-31.[456]): Made sure that there isn't an
 1067 	env(TZ) or env(TCL_TZ) lying around that will override the time zone
 1068 	that we're trying to establish with the simulated registry.
 1069 	Both problems reported as [Bug 1054101].
 1070 
 1071 2004-10-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1072 
 1073 	* doc/string.n (map): Rewrote to clarify that we don't just map single
 1074 	characters. [Bug 1048005]
 1075 	* doc/info.n (procs): Clarified that the pattern argument may have
 1076 	namespace separators in it. [Bug 1047928]
 1077 
 1078 	* tests/cmdAH.test (cmdAH-8.45): Simplify in the hope that the reasons
 1079 	for [Bug 1053908] will become clearer.
 1080 
 1081 2004-10-25  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1082 
 1083 	* generic/tclExecute.c (IllegalExprOperandType,TclExecuteByteCode):
 1084 	Removed several DECACHE_INFO/CACHE_INFO pairs that are no longer
 1085 	needed for protection because routines like Tcl_SetErrorCode() and
 1086 	Tcl_AddErrorInfo() can no longer re-enter bytecode execution.
 1087 
 1088 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclProcessReturn): Bug fix. Be sure that a
 1089 	missing -errorinfo option when code == TCL_ERROR causes the errorInfo
 1090 	field to get reset.
 1091 
 1092 	* tests/thread.test (thread-4.4): Test depended on a ::errorInfo value
 1093 	initialized to "". Added code to test to setup that requirement.
 1094 
 1095 	* library/auto.tcl:	Purged Tcl's script library of all
 1096 	* library/clock.tcl:	remaining references to global vars
 1097 	* library/init.tcl:	::errorInfo and ::errorCode.
 1098 
 1099 	* generic/tclMain.c (Tcl_Main): Updated to make use of
 1100 	TclGetReturnOptions instead of ::errorInfo variable.
 1101 
 1102 	* generic/tclInterp.c (tclInit): Bug fix. Access dict variables with
 1103 	[dict get], not array syntax.
 1104 
 1105 2004-10-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1106 
 1107 	* tests/tm.test: Rewrote the tests to actually perform syntax checks
 1108 	on the public API. Added a new test (currently failing) to indicate
 1109 	that the test suite is not complete yet.
 1110 	* library/tm.tcl (path): Rewrote to turn this command into an ensemble
 1111 	to make it faster and simpler.
 1112 
 1113 2004-10-24  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1114 
 1115 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c:
 1116 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 1117 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 1118 	* generic/tclTrace.c: defined new macros to get/set the flags of
 1119 	variables. The only files that still access the flag values directly
 1120 	are tclCompCmds.c, tclCompile.c, tclProc.c and tclVar.c
 1121 
 1122 2004-10-24  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1123 
 1124 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_LogCommandInfo,Tcl_AddObjErrorInfo): Shift
 1125 	the initialization of errorCode to NONE to more central location.
 1126 
 1127 	* generic/tclEvent.c (BgError,Tcl_BackgroundError,HandleBgErrors):
 1128 	Rewrite to build on the new TclGet/SetReturnOptions routines.
 1129 
 1130 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclGetReturnOptions): Add call to
 1131 	Tcl_AddObjErrorInfo to be sure error fields are initialized.
 1132 
 1133 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclTransferResult): Rewrite to build on the new
 1134 	TclGet/SetReturnOptions routines.
 1135 
 1136 2004-10-22  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1137 
 1138 	* doc/tm.n: Tightened up the documentation.
 1139 	* tests/tm.test: Created (with partially dummy content) so TIP#189 can
 1140 	be marked Final.
 1141 
 1142 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (NsEnsembleImplementationCmd): Make ensembles
 1143 	cut their implementations out of error traces. This is the right thing
 1144 	to do more often than not.
 1145 
 1146 2004-10-22  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1147 
 1148 	* library/clock.tcl: Fixed a typo where the fallback time zone became
 1149 	::localtime instead of :localtime. Fixed a bug where time zone names
 1150 	containing hyphens could not be loaded.
 1151 	* tests/clock.test: Added regression test cases that covers both bugs.
 1152 	Thanks to Todd M. Helfter <tmh@jumpgate.itsp.purdue.edu> for finding
 1153 	these bugs.
 1154 
 1155 2004-10-22  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1156 
 1157 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCompEvalObj, Tcl_ExprObj):
 1158 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclProcCompileProc): Always call object
 1159 	freeIntRepProc's in the same way.
 1160 
 1161 2004-10-22  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1162 
 1163 	* generic/tclVar.c: fixed bug in commit of 2004-07-23, which was
 1164 	causing a leak of Proc structures and failure of compile-12.1. Two
 1165 	lines were 'zombies' from the previous way localVarNames worked.
 1166 	Credit dgp for finding this.
 1167 
 1168 2004-10-21  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1169 
 1170 	* generic/tclInt.h (Interp):
 1171 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp,Tcl_DeleteInterp):
 1172 	* generic/tclResult.c (GetKeys,ReleaseKeys,etc.): Moved the key values
 1173 	of the return options dictionary out of private fields of the Interp
 1174 	struct and into thread-static values managed in tclResult.c.
 1175 
 1176 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_CatchObjCmd, Tcl_ErrorObjCmd): Updated to
 1177 	call the new TclGet/SetReturnOptions routines to do much of their
 1178 	work.
 1179 
 1180 	* generic/tclInt.h (TclGetReturnOptions,TclSetReturnOptions):
 1181 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclGetReturnOptions,TclSetReturnOptions): New
 1182 	utility routines to get/set the return options of an interp. Intent is
 1183 	that these routines will be converted to public routines after TIP
 1184 	approval.
 1185 
 1186 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclProcessReturn,TclMergeReturnOptions):
 1187 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclProcessReturn,TclMergeReturnOptions): Move
 1188 	internal utility routines from tclCmdMZ.c to tclResult.c.
 1189 
 1190 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp, Tcl_DeleteInterp):
 1191 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclTransferResult): Rework so that
 1192 	iPtr->returnOpts can be NULL when there are no special options.
 1193 
 1194 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclRestoreInterpState): Plug potential memory
 1195 	leak.
 1196 
 1197 2004-10-21  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1198 
 1199 	* generic/tclBasic.c: Various changes to [clock format] that,
 1200 	* generic/tclClock.c: together, make it roughly twice as fast
 1201 	* generic/tclInt.h:   while all tests in the test suite
 1202 	* library/clock.tcl:  continue to pass.
 1203 
 1204 2004-10-20  Andreas Kupries <andreask@activestate.com>
 1205 
 1206 	* win/Makefile.in (install-msgs):   Fixed a problem with the
 1207 	* win/Makefile.in (install-tzdata): installation of timezone data and
 1208 	message catalogs. They used the installed tcl library directory, not
 1209 	the source library. Before it was installed. Switched to source lib
 1210 	dir. Thanks to Kevin for the help in figuring this out.
 1211 
 1212 2004-10-20  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1213 
 1214 	* generic/tclThreadTest.c (ThreadEventProc): Corrected subtle bug
 1215 	where the returned (char *) from Tcl_GetStringResult(interp) continued
 1216 	to be used without copying or refcounting, while activity on the
 1217 	interp continued. That's not safe, and recent changes demonstrated the
 1218 	lack of safety with failing tests thread-4.3 and thread-4.5.
 1219 
 1220 2004-10-19  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1221 
 1222 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (DictWithCmd): Make sure all paths (that are
 1223 	not themselves error paths) do not lose the result code.
 1224 
 1225 2004-10-19  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1226 
 1227 	* generic/tclInt.h (Tcl*InterpState):		New internal routines
 1228 	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl*InterpState):	TclSaveInterpState,
 1229 	TclRestoreInterpState, and TclDiscardInterpState are superior
 1230 	replacements for Tcl_(Save|Restore|Discard)Result. Intent is that
 1231 	these routines will be converted to public routines after TIP
 1232 	approval. Interfaces for these routines were shamelessly stolen from
 1233 	Itcl.
 1234 
 1235 	* generic/tclBasic.c (TclEvalObjvInternal):
 1236 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (DictUpdateCmd, DictWithCmd):
 1237 	* generic/tclIOGT.c (ExecuteCallback):
 1238 	* generic/tclTrace.c (Trace*Proc,TclCheck*Traces,TclCallVarTraces):
 1239 	Callers of Tcl_*Result updated to call the new routines. The calls
 1240 	were relocated in several cases to perform save/restore operations
 1241 	only when needed.
 1242 
 1243 	* generic/tclEvent.c (HandleBgErrors):
 1244 	* generic/tclFCmd.c (CopyRenameOneFile): Calls to Tcl_*Result that
 1245 	were eliminated because they appeared to serve no useful purpose,
 1246 	typically saving/restoring an error message, only to throw it away.
 1247 
 1248 2004-10-18  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1249 
 1250 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp,Tcl_DeleteInterp):
 1251 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_CatchObjCmd):
 1252 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclMergeReturnOptions,TclProcessReturn):
 1253 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileReturnCmd):
 1254 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCompEvalObj):
 1255 	* generic/tclInt.h (Interp):
 1256 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclUpdateReturnInfo): Place primary storage of
 1257 	the -level and -code information in private fields of the Interp
 1258 	struct, rather than in a DictObj. This should significantly improve
 1259 	performance of TclUpdateReturnInfo.
 1260 
 1261 2004-10-17  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1262 
 1263 	* generic/tclResult.c: removed unused variable [Bug 1048588]. Thanks
 1264 	to Daniel South.
 1265 
 1266 2004-10-15  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1267 
 1268 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclProcessReturn):	Now that primary
 1269 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclUpdateReturnInfo):	storage for the
 1270 	errorInfo and errorCode values are internal fields, we can set them at
 1271 	the time of the [return] command, and not have to wait until the
 1272 	specified number of "-level"s have popped.
 1273 
 1274 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp, Tcl_DeleteInterp)
 1275 	(TclEvalObjvInternal, Tcl_LogCommandInfo, TclAddObjErrorInfo):
 1276 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_CatchObjCmd):
 1277 	* generic/tclEvent.c (BgError, ErrAssocData, Tcl_BackgroundError)
 1278 	(HandleBgErrors, BgErrorDeleteProc):
 1279 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCreateExecEnv, TclDeleteExecEnv):
 1280 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (comments only):
 1281 	* generic/tclInt.h (ExecEnv,Interp, ERR_IN_PROGRESS):
 1282 	* generic/tclInterp.c ([tclInit]):
 1283 	* generic/tclMain.c (comments only):
 1284 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_CreateNamespace, Tcl_DeleteNamespace)
 1285 	(TclTeardownNamespace):
 1286 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclUpdateReturnInfo):
 1287 	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl_ResetResult, TclTransferResult):
 1288 	* generic/tclTrace.c (CallVarTraces):
 1289 	Reworked management of the "errorInfo" data of an interp. That
 1290 	information is now primarily stored in a new private (Tcl_Obj *) field
 1291 	of the Interp struct, rather than using a global variable ::errorInfo
 1292 	as the primary storage. The ERR_IN_PROGRESS flag bit value is no
 1293 	longer required to manage the value in its new location, and is
 1294 	removed. Variable traces are established to support compatibility for
 1295 	any code expecting the ::errorInfo variable to hold the information.
 1296 
 1297 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
 1298 	Code that sets traces on the ::errorInfo variable may notice a
 1299 	difference in timing of the firing of those traces. Code that uses the
 1300 	value ERR_IN_PROGRESS.

 1303 
 1304 	TIP#217 IMPLEMENTATION
 1305 
 1306 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LsortObjCmd): Add -indices option from James
 1307 	Salsman. [Patch 1017532]
 1308 
 1309 	* generic/tclUtil.c (TclMatchIsTrivial): Detect degenerate cases of
 1310 	glob matching that let us avoid scanning through hash tables.
 1311 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (InfoCommandsCmd, InfoGlobalsCmd, InfoProcsCmd):
 1312 	(InfoVarsCmd): Use this to speed up some [info] subcommands.
 1313 
 1314 2004-10-12  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>

 1324 
 1325 	TIP#201 AND TIP#212 IMPLEMENTATIONS
 1326 
 1327 	* doc/dict.n, doc/expr.n: Documentation for new functionality.
 1328 	* tests/expr.test: Basic tests of 'in' and 'ni' behaviour.
 1329 	* tests/dict.test (dict-21.*,dict-22.*): Tests for [dict update] and
 1330 	[dict with].
 1331 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Implementation of the
 1332 	INST_LIST_IN and INST_LIST_NOT_IN bytecodes.
 1333 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c (GetLexeme): Parse the 'in' and 'ni'
 1334 	operators for TIP#201.
 1335 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (DictUpdateCmd,DictWithCmd): Core of
 1336 	implementation of TIP#212; docs and tests still to do...
 1337 
 1338 2004-10-07  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1339 
 1340 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestsetobjerrorcodeCmd):  Simplified.
 1341 
 1342 2004-10-07  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1343 
 1344 	* generic/tclFileName.c:

 1347 	* generic/tclPathObj.c:
 1348 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
 1349 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 1350 	* tests/fileName.test:
 1351 	* tests/winFCmd.test: code reorganization for better generic/platform
 1352 	code splitting [Bug 925620] removing the need for several #ifdef's,
 1353 	and tests and fix for an unreported Windows glob problem ('glob -dir
 1354 	C: -tails *').
 1355 
 1356 2004-10-07  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1357 
 1358 	* *.3: Convert CONST to const and VOID to void so we document how
 1359 	people should actually use the Tcl API and not the compatibility hacks
 1360 	that it has to have.
 1361 
 1362 	* doc/man.macros, *.3: Update .AS macro so it can know how wide to
 1363 	make the third column of the argument list. Update documentation for C
 1364 	API (only users) to take advantage of this.
 1365 
 1366 	* doc/FileSystem.3: Formatting fixes for greater documentation
 1367 	clarity.
 1368 
 1369 2004-10-06  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1370 
 1371 	* generic/tclFileName.c (DoGlob, TclGlob): Stop messy sharing of
 1372 	interpreter result and instead use a private object for collecting the
 1373 	result of the glob. This simplifies TclGlob quite a lot.
 1374 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c (Tcl_FSMatchInDirectory): Simplify by removing
 1375 	some nesting. Also standardize variable names.
 1376 	(FsAddMountsToGlobResult): Force updates to the list to be done
 1377 	in-place, putting a side-condition of non-shared-ness on the resultPtr
 1378 	argument to Tcl_FSMatchInDirectory, but everything would have broken
 1379 	before if that was shared *anyway*.
 1380 
 1381 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (LoadTableEncoding): Removed reference to Tcl
 1382 	interpreter; it wasn't needed as direct object use is more efficient.
 1383 
 1384 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: Made this file follow the style rules in the
 1385 	Engineering Manual more closely, and also take advantage of the
 1386 	internal object manipulation macros more.
 1387 
 1388 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_SwitchObjCmd): Reorganized to have fewer
 1389 	magic flag variables and to separate the code that scans for a match
 1390 	from the code that processes a match body.
 1391 
 1392 2004-10-06  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>

 1421 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c:
 1422 	* win/tclWinPipe.c:
 1423 	* win/tclWinReg.c:
 1424 	It is a poor practice to directly set or append to the value of the
 1425 	objResult of an interp, because that value might be shared, and in
 1426 	that circumstance a Tcl_Panic() will be the result. Searched for
 1427 	example of this practice and replaced with safer alternatives, often
 1428 	using the Tcl_AppendResult() routine that dkf just rehabilitated.
 1429 	* library/dde/pkgIndex.tcl: Bump to dde 1.3.1
 1430 	* library/reg/pkgIndex.tcl: Bump to registry 1.1.5
 1431 
 1432 2004-10-06  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1433 
 1434 	* doc/SetResult.3: Made Tcl_AppendResult non-deprecated; better that
 1435 	people use it than most of the common alternatives!
 1436 	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl_AppendResultVA): Make this work better with
 1437 	Tcl_Objs. [Patch 1041072]
 1438 	(Tcl_SetResult, Tcl_AppendElement): Change string to stringPtr to
 1439 	avoid C++ keywords.
 1440 
 1441 2004-10-05  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1442 
 1443 	* generic/tclBasic.c (TclObjInvoke): More simplification of the
 1444 	TclObjInvoke routine toward unification with the rest of the
 1445 	evaluation stack.
 1446 
 1447 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp, Tcl_DeleteInterp)
 1448 	(TclEvalObjvInternal, Tcl_LogCommandInfo):
 1449 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_CatchObjCmd):

 1451 	* generic/tclInt.h (Interp, ERROR_CODE_SET):
 1452 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_CreateNamespace, Tcl_DeleteNamespace)
 1453 	(TclTeardownNamespace):
 1454 	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl_ResetResult, Tcl_SetObjErrorCode)
 1455 	(TclTransferResult):
 1456 	* generic/tclTrace.c (CallVarTraces):
 1457 	Reworked management of the "errorCode" data of an interp. That
 1458 	information is now primarily stored in a new private (Tcl_Obj *) field
 1459 	of the Interp struct, rather than using a global variable ::errorCode
 1460 	as the primary storage. The ERROR_CODE_SET flag bit value is no longer
 1461 	required to manage the value in its new location, and is removed.
 1462 	Variable traces are established to support compatibility for any code
 1463 	expecting the ::errorCode variable to hold the information.
 1464 
 1465 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
 1466 	Code that sets traces on the ::errorCode variable may notice a
 1467 	difference in timing of the firing of those traces.
 1468 
 1469 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_PopCallFrame): Removed Bug 1038021
 1470 	workaround. That bug is now fixed.
 1471 
 1472 2004-10-04  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1473 
 1474 	* tests/clock.test (clock-34.*): Removed an antibug that forced
 1475 	comparison of [clock scan] results with the :localtime time zone. Now
 1476 	that [clock scan] uses the current time zone instead, the antibug
 1477 	caused several tests to fail. [Bug 1038554]
 1478 
 1479 2004-10-04  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1480 
 1481 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c (GetLexeme): Ensure that the 'eq' and 'ne'
 1482 	operators are followed by non-alphabetic characters so lexemes can't
 1483 	run together. [Bug 884830]
 1484 
 1485 	* doc/DictObj.3, doc/dict.n: Clarified that a dictionary is not
 1486 	order-preserving. [Bug 1032243] Also added another example to show off
 1487 	more ways of using a dictionary and a few other formatting
 1488 	improvements.
 1489 
 1490 2004-10-02  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1491 
 1492 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (TraceDictPath, Tcl_DictObjPutKeyList): Add
 1493 	support for automatic creation of dictionary paths since that is what
 1494 	everyone seems to actually expect of the API! [Bug 1037235]
 1495 	(Tcl_DictObjNext): Make calling this after Tcl_DictObjDone non-fatal
 1496 	as that simplifies a number of internal APIs. This doesn't break any
 1497 	existing working code as it is a case which previously caused a panic.
 1498 
 1499 2004-10-02  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1500 
 1501 	* tests/namespace.test (namespace-8.7):	Another test for save/restore
 1502 	of ::errorInfo and ::errorCode during global namespace teardown.
 1503 
 1504 2004-10-01  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1505 
 1506 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclObjGetFrame, Tcl_UplevelObjCmd):
 1507 	* generic/tclVar.c (Tcl_UpvarObjCmd): Cache stackframe level
 1508 	references in the level object for speed.
 1509 
 1510 2004-09-30  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1511 
 1512 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp):
 1513 	* generic/tclInt.h (Interp): Removed the flag bit value
 1514 	EXPR_INITIALIZED. It was set during interp creation and never tested.
 1515 	Whatever purpose it had is in the past.
 1516 
 1517 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalObjEx):	Removed the flag bit value
 1518 	* generic/tclInt.h (Interp):	        USE_EVAL_DIRECT. It was used
 1519 	* generic/tcLTest.c (TestevalexObjCmd): only in the testing command
 1520 	* tests/parser.test (parse-9.2):        [testevalex] and nothing in
 1521 	the test suite made use of the capability it enabled.
 1522 
 1523 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_AddObjErrorInfo): More re-organization
 1524 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_ErrorObjCmd):	    of the management of
 1525 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclProcessReturn):    the errorCode value.
 1526 	* tests/error.test (error-6.4-9):
 1527 
 1528 	* generic/tclNamespace.c (TclTeardownNamespace): Tcl_Obj-ified
 1529 	* tests/namespace.test (namespace-8.5,6):	 the save/restore of
 1530 	::errorInfo and ::errorCode during global namespace teardown. Revised
 1531 	the comment to clarify why this is done, and added tests that will
 1532 	fail if this is not done.
 1533 
 1534 	* generic/tclResult.c (TclTransferResult): Added safety checks so that
 1535 	unexpected undefined ::errorInfo or ::errorCode will not lead to a
 1536 	segfault.
 1537 
 1538 	* generic/tclTrace.c (TclCallVarTraces):  Save/restore the flag values
 1539 	* tests/var.test (var-16.1):	          that define part of the
 1540 	interpreter state during variable traces. [Bug 1038021].
 1541 
 1542 2004-09-30  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1543 
 1544 	* tests/subst.test (12.1-2): added tests for [Bug 1036649]
 1545 
 1546 2004-09-29  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1547 
 1548 	* tests/basic.test (49.*): New tests for TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL.

 1574 2004-09-27  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1575 
 1576 	* generic/tclBasic.c (TclObjInvoke): fix for bogus gcc warning about
 1577 	uninitialised variable.
 1578 
 1579 2004-09-27  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1580 
 1581 	* generic/tclBasic.c:	Removed internal routines TclInvoke,
 1582 	* generic/tclInt.decls: TclGlobalInvoke, TclObjInvokeGlobal and the
 1583 	* tests/basic.test:	portion of TclObjInvoke that handles calls
 1584 	without TCL_INVOKE_HIDDEN enabled. None of this code is called any
 1585 	longer within the core, and the superior public interface,
 1586 	Tcl_EvalObjv, is available for any external callers.
 1587 
 1588 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:	make genstubs
 1589 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 1590 
 1591 	* generic/tclEvent.c (HandleBgErrors): Updated [bgerror] invocations
 1592 	to make use of Tcl_Obj based routines, dropping the calls to
 1593 	TclGlobalInvoke()
 1594

 1605 	volume-relative pwd on Windows [Bug 1018980].
 1606 
 1607 	* doc/FileSystem.3: added missing Tcl_GlobTypeData documentation [Bug

 1609 
 1610 2004-09-27  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 1611 
 1612 	* compat/strftime.c (Removed):
 1613 	* generic/tclClock.c (removed TclClockOldscanObjCmd):
 1614 	* generic/tclDate.c (Regenerated):
 1615 	* generic/tclGetDate.y:
 1616 	* generic/tclInt.decls (removed TclGetDate and TclpStrftime):

 1622 	* win/Makefile.in:
 1623 	* win/makefile.bc:
 1624 	* win/makefile.bc:
 1625 	* win/tcl.dsp:
 1626 	Continued refactoring of [clock] for TIP 173 changes. Broke the
 1627 	free-form parser apart so that the Bison parser is responsible for
 1628 	only parsing, while clock.tcl handles relative times like "next
 1629 	Thursday", "next January". This change is needed to make timezones
 1630 	other than :localtime and :Etc/UTC work with free-form scanning. This
 1631 	change closes out the issue identified as being "for another day" in
 1632 	my log message of 2004-09-08. The refactored code also eliminates the
 1633 	last known references to TclpStrftime and TclGetDate, so those
 1634 	routines (including compat/strftime.c) have been removed. The
 1635 	refactoring also has the benefit that all storage in the Bison parser
 1636 	is now on the C stack, eliminating any need for mutex protection
 1637 	around [clock scan]. Also, changed the Makefiles so that 'make
 1638 	gendate' is available on Windows as well as Unix.
 1639 
 1640 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_FormatObjCmd): Removed some grubby
 1641 	* generic/tclObj.c (SetBooleanFromAny):	 work-around code that was
 1642 	needed only because of Bug 868489.
 1643 
 1644 	* generic/tclBasic.c (TclObjInvoke): Removed three unused variables to
 1645 	silence a compiler warning in VC++.
 1646 
 1647 2004-09-27  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 1648 
 1649 	* doc/FileSystem.3: fix to small typo.

 1668 2004-09-23  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 1669 
 1670 	* unix/dltest/Makefile.in (clean): Fixup make clean rule so that it
 1671 	does not delete all files when SHLIB_SUFFIX is set to the empty string
 1672 	in a static build. [Bug 1016726]
 1673 
 1674 2004-09-23  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1675 
 1676 	* generic/tclBasic.c:	Corrections to the 2004-09-21 commit
 1677 	* generic/tclExecute.c:	regarding ERR_ALREADY_LOGGED. That commit
 1678 	* generic/tclNamesp.c:	caused Tk test send-10.7 to fail. Added
 1679 	* tests/namespace.test (25.7,8): tests in the Tcl test suite
 1680 	* tests/pkg.test (2.25,26):	 to catch this error without the aid
 1681 	of Tk in the future.
 1682 
 1683 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_ExprObjCmd):	Simplified the TclObjCmdProc
 1684 	of [expr] with a call to Tcl_ConcatObj.
 1685 
 1686 2004-09-22  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1687 
 1688 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclProcessReturn):	Support the -errorline
 1689 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript):	option to [return].
 1690 	* tests/compile.test (16.23.*):	Use that capability to defer reporting
 1691 	* tests/misc.test (1.2):	of parse errors until runtime. Updated
 1692 	tests to reflect change. [Bug 1032805]
 1693 
 1694 2004-09-22  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1695 
 1696 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_START_CMD):
 1697 	* tests/proc.test (7.2-3): fix for [Bug 729692] was incorrect whenever
 1698 	a loop exception was returned.
 1699 
 1700 2004-09-22  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1701 
 1702 	* library/tzdata/America/Montevideo: Updated to reflect
 1703 	ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2004d.tar.gz. (Changes to
 1704 	Asia/Jerusalem were in the comments only.) [Routine maintenance - no
 1705 	bug] Spanish-language description of the change at

 1707 
 1708 2004-09-21  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1709 
 1710 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c:	Tolerate [append] syntax errors
 1711 	* tests/appendComp.test (8.1):	at compile time, and allow runtime to
 1712 	raise the error (or succeed if a redefined [append] allows).
 1713 
 1714 	* generic/tclBasic.c:	Reworked management of the interp flag
 1715 	* generic/tclCompile.c:	ERR_ALREADY_LOGGED, to reduce its exposure.
 1716 	* generic/tclExecute.c: Still left several referebces that are just
 1717 	* generic/tclNamesp.c:	too nice on performace to do away with.	These
 1718 	changes also resolve an inconsistency in the ::errorInfo values
 1719 	produced by [namespace eval x error foo bar] and [namespace eval x
 1720 	{error foo bar}].
 1721 
 1722 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCompEvalObj):	Simplified the
 1723 	TclCompEvalObj routine. Much housekeeping now reliably happens
 1724 	elsewhere. [Patch 1031949]
 1725 
 1726 2004-09-21  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1727 
 1728 	* doc/interp.n: Tighten up wording on how [interp eval] and [interp
 1729 	invokehidden] operate w.r.t. stack frames. [Bug 926590]
 1730 
 1731 2004-09-20  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1732 
 1733 	* tests/error.test (error-6.2,3):	Added more tests to verify
 1734 	::errorCode setting by/after a [catch].
 1735 
 1736 2004-09-19  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1737 
 1738 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c: removed outdated comment [Bug 1029518].
 1739 
 1740 2004-09-18  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 1741 
 1742 	* win/tclAppInit.c: Dde package can load into a safe interp. Claim
 1743 	this fact for the Tcl_StaticPackage() call when the shell is built
 1744 	with the TCL_USE_STATIC_PACKAGES option.
 1745 
 1746 2004-09-18  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1747 
 1748 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC-INST_LSHIFT,INST_RSHIFT): Ensure that
 1749 	large shifts end up shifting correctly. [Bug 868467]
 1750 
 1751 	* doc/FileSystem.3, doc/OpenFileChnl.3: More documentation fixes from
 1752 	Mikhail Kolesnitchenko. [Patch 1022527]
 1753 	* doc/*: Standardize highlighting of symbols defined in tcl.h
 1754 
 1755 2004-09-17  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1756 
 1757 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_AddObjErrorInfo, Tcl_LogCommandInfo):
 1758 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c ([catch], [error]):
 1759 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c ([return]):
 1760 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclUpdateReturnInfo):
 1761 	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl_SetErrorCodeVA, Tcl_SetObjErrorCode)
 1762 	(TclTransferResult):	Refactored so that all errorCode setting flows
 1763 	through Tcl_SetObjErrorCode(). This greatly reduces the number of
 1764 	different places in the code that need to know details about an
 1765 	internal bitflag field of the Interp struct. Also places errorCode
 1766 	setting in one place for easier future mods.
 1767 
 1768 2004-09-17  Kevin B.Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1769 
 1770 	* generic/tclDate.c:	Revised tclGetDate.y to use bison instead of
 1771 	* generic/tclGetDate.y: yacc to build the parser, eliminating all the
 1772 	* generic/tclInt.h:	complicated hackery involving 'sed'
 1773 	* unix/Makefile.in:	postprocessing. Rebuilt the parser.
 1774 
 1775 2004-09-14  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1776 
 1777 	* generic/tclClock.c (ClockOldscanObjCmd): Silenced a compiler warning
 1778 	(long passed as a param where unsigend long was expected). 'Unsigned
 1779 	long' is wrong, but the fix is really to change the signature of
 1780 	TclGetDate to return a structure of its 'yy' variables and then do the
 1781 	remaining work inside clock.tcl. But, as I said on 2004-09-08, that's
 1782 	a job for another day. [Bug 1027993]
 1783 
 1784 2004-09-10  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1785

 1787 	* generic/tclInterp.c (TclPreventAliasLoop, AliasCreate):
 1788 	* tests/interp.test (17.4-6, 19.3-4): fixing problems with renaming of
 1789 	aliases [Bugs 707104 1026493]. Fix designed by dgp.
 1790 
 1791 2004-09-13  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1792 
 1793 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (NsEnsembleImplementationCmd): Add token field
 1794 	to internal rep of EnsembleCmdRep structure so that we can check it to
 1795 	see if the subcommand object is really being used with the same
 1796 	ensemble. [Bug 1026903]
 1797 
 1798 2004-09-11  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1799 
 1800 	* generic/tclClock.c (TclMktimeObjCmd): Corrected a bad check for
 1801 	error return from 'mktime'.
 1802 	* generic/tclObj.c (Tcl_GetIntFromObj): Corrected a problem where
 1803 	demoting a wide to an int failed on a big-endian machine. [Bug
 1804 	1026125].
 1805 	* tests/clock.test (clock-43.1): Added regression test for error
 1806 	return from 'mktime'.
 1807 
 1808 2004-09-11  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1809 
 1810 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_CONCAT1): fix for [Bug 1025834]; avoid
 1811 	unnecessary string copies.
 1812 
 1813 2004-09-10  David Gravereaux <davyrgvy@pobox.com>
 1814 
 1815 	* tests/tcltest.test: tcltest-12.3-4 needed to have
 1816 	::tcltest::loadScript set to empty in their -setup
 1817 
 1818 2004-09-10  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 1819 
 1820 	* generic/tclObj.c (SetIntOrWideFromAny): Rewritten integral value
 1821 	parsing code so that values do not flip so easily between numeric
 1822 	representations. Thanks to KBK for this! [Bug 868489]
 1823 
 1824 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_Seek): Make sure wide seeks do not fail to set
 1825 	::errorCode on error. [Bug 1025359]
 1826 
 1827 2004-09-10  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
 1828 
 1829 	* generic/tcl.h: Micro formatting fixes.
 1830 	* generic/tclIOGT.c: Channel version fixed, must be 3, to have
 1831 	wideseekProc. Thanks to David Graveraux <davygrvy@pobox.com>.
 1832 
 1833 2004-09-11  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1834 
 1835 	* generic/tclNamespace.c (TclGetNamespaceForQualName): Resolved
 1836 	longstanding inconsistency in the treatment of the TCL_NAMESPACE_ONLY
 1837 	flag revealed by testing the 2004-09-09 commits against Itcl.
 1838 	TCL_NAMESPACE_ONLY now acts as specified in the pre-function comment,
 1839 	forcing resolution in the passed in context namespace. It has been
 1840 	incorrectly forcing resolution in the interp's current namespace.
 1841 
 1842 2004-09-10  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 1843 
 1844 	* library/clock.tcl: Fixed a bug where %z always put a plus sign on
 1845 	the time zone in :localtime.
 1846 	* tests/clock.test: Added test case for the above bug.
 1847 
 1848 2004-09-10  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 1849 
 1850 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_CONCAT1): added a peephole optimisation
 1851 	for concatting an empty string. This enables replacing the idiom 'K $x
 1852 	[set x {}]' by '$x[set x {}]' for fastest execution.
 1853 
 1854 2004-09-09  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 1855 
 1856 	* win/tclWinConsole.c: Calls to WriteFile and WriteConsoleA changed to
 1857 	WriteConsole for simplicity.
 1858 
 1859 2004-09-09  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1860 
 1861 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_ForgetImport):	Corrected faulty
 1862 
 1863 	* tests/namespace.test: logic that relied exclusively on string
 1864 	matching and failed in the presence of [rename]s. [Bug 560297] Also
 1865 	corrected faulty prevention of [namespace import] cycles. [Bug 1017299]
 1866 
 1867 2004-09-08  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 1868 
 1869 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp):	Removed obsolete field
 1870 	for storing the string-based command procedure of built-in commands.
 1871 	We no longer have any string-based built-in commands!
 1872 
 1873 2004-09-08  Kevin B. Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
 1874 
 1875 	* compat/strftime.c (_conv): Corrected a problem where hour 0 would
 1876 	format as a blank format group with %k.
 1877 	* doc/clock.n: Corrected a buglet in the header information. [Bug
 1878 	1024058]
 1879 	* generic/tclClock.c (TclClockMktimeObjCmd): Fixed a bug where the
 1880 	month was scanned incorrectly in -timezone :localtime.
 1881 	* tests/clock.test (clock-34.*,clock-40.1, clock-41.1): Adjusted the
 1882 	clock-34.* test cases so that the consistency check is performed in
 1883 	:localtime rather than the current time zone. This change allows
 1884 	dealing with issues where the C library has a different idea of DST
 1885 	conversion than Tcl. (Real fix would be to break TclGetDate into
 1886 	separate parser and time converter, and do the time conversion in
 1887 	clock.tcl. That's for another day.) Added regression test case for the
 1888 	bug where month was scanned incorrectly in -timezone :localtime. [Bug
 1889 	1023779] Added regression test case for %k at the zero hour.
 1890 
 1891 2004-09-07  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 1892 
 1893 	* win/makefile.vc: some quoting needed to be removed as it was
 1894 	breaking with VC7. [Bug 1023150]
 1895 
 1896 2004-09-07  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 1897 
 1898 	* doc/clock.n: Documented the default -format, and changed references
 1899 	to a (nonexistent) msgcat command to refer to the msgcat package. [Bug
 1900 	1023870]
 1901 	* generic/tclTimer.c: Removed a premature optimisation that attempted
 1902 	to store the assoc data in the client data; the optimisation caused a
 1903 	bug that [after] would overwrite its imports. [Bug 1016167]
 1904 	* library/clock.tcl (InitTZData, ClearCaches): Changed so that the
 1905 	in-memory time zone :UTC (and its aliases) always gets reinitialised,
 1906 	in case tzdata is absent. [Bug 1019537, 1023779]
 1907 	* library/tzdata/*: Regenerated.
 1908 	* tests/clock.test (clock-31.*, clock-39.1): Corrected a problem where
 1909 	the 'system' locale tests fail on a non-English Windows machine. [Bug
 1910 	1023761]. Added a test to make sure that alias time zones load
 1911 	correctly. [Bug 1023779].
 1912 	* tests/timer.test (timer-1.1, timer-2.1): Changed to (one hopes!) be
 1913 	more resilient on an overloaded system, if [after 200] sleeps for 300
 1914 	ms or longer.
 1915 	* tools/tclZIC.tcl (writeLinks): Corrected a problem where alias time
 1916 	zone names were written incorrectly, causing them to fail to load at
 1917 	run time. [Bug 1023779].
 1918 	* win/tclWinTime.c (Tcl_GetTime): Eliminated CPUID tests on Win64 -
 1919 	assuming that HAL vendors now do a better job of keeping the
 1920 	performance counters synchronized among CPU's. [Bug 1020445]

 2108 		Implementation of TIPs #173 and #209.
 2109 
 2110 	The [clock] command is now a Tcl ensemble, with most of its
 2111 	functionality written in Tcl and callouts to C code only to access
 2112 	low-level functions such as localtime, mktime and tzset.
 2113 
 2114 	In addition to the functionality changes called out in the two TIPs,
 2115 	it is worth noting that the [clock] command in a safe slave
 2116 	interpreter is now an alias to the [clock] command in the master, and
 2117 	that [clock] is otherwise not expected to function entirely correctly
 2118 	in safe interps. C code that simply does Tcl_MakeSafe needs to be
 2119 	aware that [clock] may need special handling. (It appears unlikely
 2120 	that such code actually exists.)
 2121 
 2122 	One incompatibility of note is that if the time zone cannot be
 2123 	determined from the TZ, TCL_TZ environment variables, or from the
 2124 	Windows control panel, so that the C library must be used for date and
 2125 	time conversions, then times outside the range of time_t will fail;
 2126 	they used to return bad data silently.
 2127 
 2128 	Many thanks to all the many people who assisted with testing,
 2129 	debugging, criticism of the specification, and localisation. Deserving
 2130 	of particular mention are Joe English, Clif Flynt, Donal K. Fellows,
 2131 	Jeff Hobbs, Cameron Laird, Arjen Markus, Reinhard Max, Christopher
 2132 	Nelson, Steve Offutt, Donald G. Porter, Pascal Scheffers, Peter da

 2295 
 2296 	* generic/tclIOCmd.c (Tcl_FcopyObjCmd): Corrected a typo in the

 2323 	patch for [Bug 990453], closing leakage of mutexes. They were not
 2324 	destroyed properly upon finalization.
 2325 
 2326 2004-07-15  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
 2327 
 2328 	* generic/tclIO.h (CHANNEL_INCLOSE):	   New flag. Set in
 2329 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_UnregisterChannel): 'Tcl_Close' while the
 2330 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_Close):		   close callbacks are
 2331 	run. Checked in 'Tcl_Close' and 'Tcl_Unregister' to prevent recursive
 2332 	call of 'close' in the close-callbacks. This is a possible error made
 2333 	by implementors of virtual filesystems based on 'tclvfs', thinking
 2334 	that they have to close the channel in the close handler for the
 2335 	filesystem.
 2336 
 2337 2004-07-14  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
 2338 
 2339 	* generic/tclIO.c:
 2340 	* generic/tclIO.h:
 2341 	* Not reverting, but #ifdef'ing the changes from May 19, 2004 out of
 2342 	the core. This removes the ***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY*** for channel
 2343 	drivers it introduced. This has become possible due to Expect gaining
 2344 	a BlockModeProc and now handling blockingg and non-blocking modes
 2345 	correctly. Thus [SF Tcl Bug 943274] is still fixed if a recent enough
 2346 	version of Expect is used.
 2347 
 2348 	* doc/CrtChannel.3: Added warning about usage of a channel without a
 2349 	BlockModeProc.
 2350 
 2351 2004-07-15  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@pliers.activestate.com>
 2352 
 2353 	* generic/tclIOCmd.c (Tcl_PutsObjCmd): Added length check to the old
 2354 	depreceated newline syntax, to ensure that only "nonewline" is
 2355 	accepted. [Tcl SF Bug 985869], reported by Joe Mistachkin
 2356 	<mistachkin@users.sourceforge.net>.
 2357 
 2358 2004-07-15  Zoran Vasiljevic <vasiljevic@users.sf.net>
 2359 
 2360 	* generic/tclEvent.c (Tcl_Finalize): stuffed memory leak incurred by
 2361 	re-initializing of TSD slots after the last call to
 2362 	TclFinalizeThreadData (done from within Tcl_FinalizeThread()). We
 2363 	basically just repeat the TclFinalizeThreadData() once more before
 2364 	tearing down TSD keys in TclFinalizeSynchronization(). There should be
 2365 	more elaborate mechanism in place for handling such issues, based on
 2366 	thread cleanup handlers registered on the OS level. Such change
 2367 	requires much more work and would also require TIP because some
 2368 	visible parts of Tcl API would have to be modified. In the meantime,
 2369 	this will do.
 2370 
 2371 	* generic/tclNotify.c (TclFinalizeNotifier): Added conditional
 2372 	notifier finalization based on the fact that an TclInitNotifier has
 2373 	been called for the current thread. This fixes the [Bug 770053] again.
 2374 	Hopefully this time w/o unwanted side-effects.
 2375 
 2376 2004-07-15  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 2377 
 2378 	* generic/tclLiteral.c (TclReleaseLiteral): Removed unused variable
 2379 	'codePtr' to silence a message from VC++.
 2380 
 2381 2004-07-15  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2382 
 2383 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript):
 2384 	* generic/tclLiteral.c (TclReleaseLiteral): fix for [Bug 467523],
 2385 	which resurfaced with the latest changes. The previous strategy was to
 2386 	have special code in TclReleaseLiteral to handle the self-references
 2387 	generated by empty scripts. The new approach avoids the self-reference
 2388 	altogether, by having empty scripts return an unshared literal.
 2389 
 2390 2004-07-15  Zoran Vasiljevic <vasiljevic@users.sf.net>
 2391 
 2392 	* generic/tclEvent.c (NewThreadProc): Backout of changes to fix the
 2393 	[Bug 770053]. See SF bugreport for more info.
 2394 
 2395 2004-07-11  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2396 
 2397 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_EvalEx): leak fix by dgp, release
 2398 	objv[objectsUsed] on error.
 2399 
 2400 2004-07-11  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2401 
 2402 	* generic/tclParse.c (Tcl_SubstObj): leak fix by dgp, release result
 2403 	on error.
 2404 
 2405 2004-07-11  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2406 
 2407 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (BuildEnsembleConfig): Don't forget to clean out
 2408 	references when deleting the hash table.
 2409 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (Tcl_DictObjRemoveKeyList): Oops, forgot to
 2410 	delete value object when removing the hash entry. [Bug 989093 in part]
 2411 
 2412 2004-07-11  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2413 
 2414 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC): fixed leak of expandNestList objs when
 2415 	there is an error while an expansion is in progress (code added at
 2416 	checkForCatch).
 2417 
 2418 2004-07-11  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2419 
 2420 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fix to 'cd' bug when vfs is active [tclvfs Bug
 2421 	986944] - this bug recently introduced by some threading fixes. Need
 2422 	to work out how to add tests for this.
 2423 
 2424 2004-07-10  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 2425 
 2426 	* tests/clock.test (clock-2.11): Changed the test so that it isn't an
 2427 	infinite loop when run under valgrind on a slow virtual machine.
 2428 	Thanks to Miguel Sofer for the bug report. Also put in code to restore
 2429 	env(LC_TIME) after tests complete, silencing a warning from 'make
 2430 	TESTFLAGS="-debug 1" test'.
 2431 
 2432 2004-07-08  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2433 
 2434 	* generic/tclBasic.c (DeleteInterpProc): reverted the modification of
 2435 	3 days ago, as the leak of [Bug 983660] is now handled by the change
 2436 	in TclCleanupByteCode.
 2437 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCleanupByteCode): let each bytecode remove
 2438 	its references to literals at interp deletion, without updating the
 2439 	dying literal table.
 2440 	* generic/tclLiteral.c (TclDeleteLiteralTable): with the above change
 2441 	to TclCleanupByteCode, this function now removes a single reference to
 2442 	the literal object and cleans up its own structures.
 2443 
 2444 2004-07-08  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 2445 
 2446 	* win/tclWinInit.c (AppendEnvironment): Silenced a compilation warning
 2447 	about a type mismatch.
 2448 
 2449 2004-07-07  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2450 
 2451 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript): fix for [Bug 458361].
 2452 	Single-word scripts are compiled with an unshared cmdName to avoid
 2453 	shimmering between bytecode and cmdName reps.
 2454 
 2455 2004-07-07  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2456 
 2457 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (TclMergeReturnOptions):  Simplified logic and
 2458 	removed potential memory leak. [Bug 986257].
 2459 
 2460 2004-07-07  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2461 
 2462 	* tools/man2help2.tcl (setTabs, IPmacro): Added support for the more
 2463 	advanced *roff macros used in Tk's doc/bind.n
 2464 
 2465 	* generic/tclObj.c (TclInitObjSubsystem): Declare all current object
 2466 	types.
 2467 
 2468 2004-07-06  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2469 
 2470 	* tests/cmdMZ.test (cmdMZ-return-2.17): Added a test that a word
 2471 	containing backslash-quoted value is treated correctly.
 2472 
 2473 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclWordKnownAtCompileTime): [Bug 986196]
 2474 	Corrected flaw above and the flaw that caused TCL_TOKEN_SIMPLE_WORDs
 2475 	to have their original word value copied ( "{a b}" ) rather than the
 2476 	actual value ( "a b" ). Thanks to Kevin Kenny for report and tests.
 2477 
 2478 2004-07-06  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 2479 
 2480 	* tests/cmdMZ.test (cmdMZ-return-2.15,cmdMZ-return-2.16): Added a test
 2481 	that a return code containing spaces is correctly returned.
 2482 
 2483 2004-07-06  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2484 
 2485 	* tools/man2html2.tcl (IPmacro, setTabs): Added support for the more
 2486 	advanced *roff macros used in Tk's doc/bind.n
 2487 
 2488 2004-07-05  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2489 
 2490 	* generic/tclBasic.c (DeleteInterpProc): fix for [Bug 983660], found
 2491 	by pspjuth. Tear down the global namespace before freeing the interp
 2492 	handle, to allow the bytecodes to free their non-shared literals.
 2493 	* generic/tclLiteral.c (TclReleaseLiteral): moved special code for
 2494 	self-ref so that it is also used for non-shared literals. Possible bug
 2495 	found by inspection.
 2496 
 2497 2004-07-03  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2498 
 2499 	* generic/tclExecute.c (ExprRoundFunc):
 2500 	* tests/expr-old.test (39.1): added support for wide integers to
 2501 	round(); [Bug 908375], reported by Hemang Lavana.
 2502 
 2503 2004-07-03  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2504 
 2505 	* generic/tclCompile.h:
 2506 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 2507 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
 2508 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: Moved declaration of TclCompEvalObj() from
 2509 	tclCompile.h to the internal stubs table, for compiler
 2510 	experimentation.
 2511 
 2512 2004-07-02  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2513 
 2514 	* generic/regcomp.c (stid): correct minor pointer size error
 2515 
 2516 	* generic/tclPipe.c (TclCreatePipeline): applied TIP #202 patch that
 2517 	* doc/exec.n, tests/exec.test:		 adds 2>@1 as a special case
 2518 	redirection of stderr to the result output.
 2519 
 2520 2004-07-02  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 2521 
 2522 	* tests/io.test: Changed several tests to run the event loop rather
 2523 	than just calling [update] periodically, avoiding intermittent
 2524 	failures (usually in io-29.32) that stemmed from unreaped processes on
 2525 	Windows.
 2526 	* tests/winPipe.test (winpipe-1.11): Fixed a bug that caused test to
 2527 	fail if the path name of the working directory contained whitespace
 2528 	[Bug 678430]
 2529 
 2530 2004-07-01  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2531 
 2532 	* tests/fileSystem.test: Added test for [Bug 970529]
 2533 
 2534 2004-07-01  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2535 
 2536 	* win/README.binary, win/README: Updated references to Tcl and Tk 8.4
 2537 	to point to 8.5 instead. Thanks to Theo Verelst for spotting this.
 2538 	* generic/tcl.h: Added note to help prevent those changes from getting
 2539 	missed in the future.
 2540 
 2541 	* doc/Namespace.3, doc/load.n, doc/Limit.3: Typo fixes and remove
 2542 	duplicate documentation. [Bug 983146]
 2543 
 2544 2004-06-30  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2545 
 2546 	* tests/fileSystem.test: Minor correction to new fileSystem-9.X tests
 2547 	so that they clean up temporary directories correctly.
 2548 
 2549 2004-06-30  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2550 
 2551 	* doc/filename.n: clarified behaviour concerning trailing slashes in
 2552 	filenames [Bug 971976]
 2553 
 2554 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 2555 	* tests/fileSystem.test: fix and tests for [Bug 979879]
 2556 
 2557 2004-06-30  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2558 
 2559 	TIP#188 IMPLEMENTATION
 2560 
 2561 	* doc/string.n, tests/string.test:	 Add 'wideinteger' to things
 2562 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): that can be tested for with
 2563 	the [string is] subcommand. [Patch 940915, by Kevin Kenny]
 2564 
 2565 2004-06-29  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2566 
 2567 	* win/tclWinInit.c:	Corrected reference counting flaw in recent
 2568 	changes. Thanks to Pat Thoyts. [Bug 981893].
 2569 
 2570 2004-06-29  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2571 
 2572 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: fix to compilation with VC++ 5.2
 2573 
 2574 2004-06-29  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2575 
 2576 	* library/safe.tcl: Make sure that the temporary variable is local to
 2577 	the namespace and not inadvertently global. [Bug 981733]
 2578 
 2579 2004-06-24  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2580 
 2581 	* tests/unixNotfy.test: Modified constraints so that testing with a
 2582 	threaded tclsh (not tcltest) will not hang.
 2583 
 2584 2004-06-23  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2585 
 2586 	* generic/tclThreadStorage.c: Corrected type casting errors that led
 2587 	to calculation of a negative index value, thus accesses outside the
 2588 	threadStorageCache array, thus memory corruption. Crash observed on
 2589 	Mac OS X platform.
 2590 
 2591 2004-06-23  Joe Mistachkin  <joe@mistachkin.com>
 2592 
 2593 	* generic/tclThread.c: Implements platform independent thread storage
 2594 	* generic/tclThreadStorage.c: mechanism and fixes associated bugs on
 2595 	platforms where there is limited thread local storage space
 2596 	(Win98/WinNT4). [Patch 976496]
 2597 
 2598 	* generic/tclInt.decls:
 2599 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h: Added thread storage functions to the
 2600 	* generic/tclStubInit.c: internal stubs table.
 2601 
 2602 	* unix/Makefile.in:
 2603 	* unix/configure:
 2604 	* unix/tcl.m4:
 2605 	* win/makefile.vc:
 2606 	* win/rules.vc:
 2607 	* win/Makefile.in: Modified the unix, VC++, and Cygwin build systems
 2608 	* win/configure: to include the new "tclThreadStorage.c" and the new
 2609 	* win/tcl.m4: USE_THREAD_STORAGE define.
 2610 
 2611 2004-06-23  Pat Thoyts	<patthoyts@users.sourceforge.net>
 2612 
 2613 	* tests/io.test: Added -force to 18.1 and 18.2. This was failing on
 2614 	WinXP.
 2615 
 2616 	* tests/winFCmd.test: Added a cleanup to winFCmd-16.11 to avoid a
 2617 	failure in 16.12.
 2618 
 2619 	* tests/eofchar.data: Added -kb option to ensure a binary checkout to
 2620 	win32 systems. This fixes a failure in io-61.1
 2621 
 2622 	* win/makefile.vc: fix for [Bug 977369] about launching tclsh to
 2623 	generate a tclConfig.sh with the nmake build system
 2624 
 2625 2004-06-23  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 2626 
 2627 	* tests/winDde.test (createChildProcess): Added a 200-ms delay (with
 2628 	the event loop live) when shutting down the test DDE server process.
 2629 	With the delay in place, nuisance failures of tests winDde-4.2, -6.5,
 2630 	and -6.6 appear to be much less frequent. [Bug 957449]
 2631 
 2632 2004-06-23  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2633 
 2634 	* tests/*.test: Standardize use of platform constraints.
 2635 
 2636 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (GetStackSize, TclpCheckStackSpace):
 2637 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c (TclpThreadGetStackSize): Added code to check
 2638 	whether the C stack is about to be exceeded, from [Patch 746378] by
 2639 	Joe Mistachkin but with substantial revisions.
 2640 
 2641 2004-06-22  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 2642 
 2643 	* generic/tclEvent.c (NewThreadProc): Fixed broken build on Windows
 2644 	caused by missing TCL_THREAD_CREATE_RETURN.
 2645 
 2646 	* tests/stack.test (stack-3.1): Corrected nuisance error in threaded
 2647 	builds.
 2648 
 2649 2004-06-22  Zoran Vasiljevic <vasiljevic@users.sf.net>
 2650 
 2651 	* generic/tclEvent.c:
 2652 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 2653 	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c:
 2654 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c:
 2655 	* win/tclWinThrd.c: [Bug 770053]. See bug report for more information
 2656 	about what it does.
 2657 
 2658 	* tests/unixNotfy.test: rewritten to use tcltest::threadReap to
 2659 	gracefully wait for the test thread to exit. Otherwise we got a race
 2660 	condition with main thread exiting before the test thread. This
 2661 	exposed the long-standing Tcl lib issue with resource
 2662 	garbage-collection on application exit.
 2663 
 2664 2004-06-21  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 2665 
 2666 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c (DllMain, _except_dllmain_detach_handler)
 2667 	(TclpCheckStackSpace, _except_checkstackspace_handler)
 2668 	(TclWinCPUID, _except_TclWinCPUID_detach_handler):
 2669 	* win/tclWinChan.c (Tcl_MakeFileChannel)
 2670 	(_except_makefilechannel_handler):
 2671 	* win/tclWinFCmd.c (DoRenameFile, _except_dorenamefile_handler)
 2672 	(DoCopyFile, _except_docopyfile_handler):
 2673 	Rework pushing of exception handler function pointer so that compiling
 2674 	with gcc -O3 works. Remove empty function call to avoid compiler
 2675 	warning. Mark the DllMain function as noinline to avoid compiler error
 2676 	from duplicated asm labels in generated code.
 2677 
 2678 2004-06-21  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2679 
 2680 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c (Ptr2Block): Rewrote so as to maximize the
 2681 	chance of detecting and reporting a memory inconsistency without
 2682 	relying on things being consistent. [Bug 975895]
 2683 
 2684 2004-06-18  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2685 
 2686 	* tests/load.test:	Relaxed strictness of error message matching
 2687 	for test load-2.3 so that it will pass on Mac OSX.
 2688 
 2689 	* generic/tclEncoding.c: Static TclFindEncodings -> FindEncodings.
 2690 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Updated TclpFindExecutable() so that failed
 2691 	* generic/tclUtil.c:	attempts to find the executable are saved
 2692 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:	just as successful finds are. [Patch 966053]
 2693 	* unix/tclUnixTest.c:
 2694 
 2695 2004-06-18  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 2696 
 2697 	* tests/winFCmd.test (winFCmd-16.12): Changed test to compute the
 2698 	target directory, so as not to fail if the user's HOME isn't the root.
 2699 
 2700 2004-06-19  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 2701 
 2702 	* unix/tcl.m4: autoconf 2.5 fixes in Darwin section.
 2703 	* unix/configure: autoconf-2.57
 2704 
 2705 2004-06-18  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2706 
 2707 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (localeTable): Added some more locale to encoding
 2708 	mapping info from Jim Huang <jserv@kaffe.org>
 2709 
 2710 	* generic/tclInt.h (PendingObjData,TclFreeObjMacro,etc):
 2711 	* generic/tclObj.c (TclFreeObj): Added scheme for making TclFreeObj()
 2712 	avoid blowing up the C stack when freeing up very large object trees.
 2713 	[Bug 886231]
 2714 
 2715 	* win/tclWinInit.c (SetDefaultLibraryDir): Fix logic, simplify and add
 2716 	comments.
 2717 
 2718 2004-06-17  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2719 
 2720 	* generic/tclObj.c:	Added missing space in panic message.
 2721 
 2722 	* win/tclWinInit.c:	Inform [tclInit] about the default library
 2723 	directory via the ::tclDefaultLibrary variable. This should correct a
 2724 	problem with my 2004-06-11 commit. Better solutions still in the
 2725 	works. Thanks to Joe Mistachkin for pointing out the breakage.
 2726 
 2727 2004-06-16  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2728 
 2729 	* doc/library.n:	Moved variables ::auto_oldpath and
 2730 	* library/auto.tcl:	::unknown_pending into ::tcl namespace.
 2731 	* library/init.tcl:	[Bugs 808319, 948794]
 2732 
 2733 2004-06-15  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2734 
 2735 	* doc/binary.n: Added some notes to the documentation of the 'a'
 2736 	format to address the point raised in [RFE 768852].
 2737 
 2738 2004-06-15  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2739 
 2740 	* unix/tclConfig.sh.in (TCL_EXTRA_CFLAGS): set to @CFLAGS@, which is
 2741 	the configure-time CFLAGS. Addendum to m4 change on 2004-05-26.
 2742 
 2743 2004-06-14  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 2744 
 2745 	* win/Makefile.in: Corrected compilation flags for tclPkgConfig.c so
 2746 	that it doesn't require Stubs.
 2747 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp): Removed comment stating that
 2748 	TclInitEmbeddedConfigurationInformation needs Stubs; with the change
 2749 	above, the comment is now erroneous.
 2750 
 2751 2004-06-11  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2752 
 2753 	* doc/Encoding.3:	Removed bogus claims about tcl_libPath.
 2754 
 2755 	* generic/tclInterp.c (Tcl_Init):	Stopped setting the
 2756 	tcl_libPath variable. [tclInit] can get all its directories without it.
 2757 
 2758 	* tests/unixInit.test:	Modified test code that made use of
 2759 	tcl_libPath variable.
 2760 
 2761 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c:	Stopped setting the tclDefaultLibrary variable,
 2762 	execept on the Mac OS X platform with HAVE_CFBUNDLE. In that
 2763 	configuration we should seek some way to make use of the TIP 59
 2764 	facilities and get rid of that usage of tclDefaultLibrary as well.
 2765 
 2766 	* generic/tclInterp.c:	Updated [tclInit] to make $env(TCL_LIBRARY) an
 2767 	absolute path, and to include the scriptdir,runtime configuration value
 2768 	on the search path for init.tcl.
 2769 
 2770 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c:	The routines Tcl_Init() and TclSourceRCFile()
 2771 	* win/tclWinInit.c:	had identical implementations for both win and
 2772 	* generic/tclInterp.c:	unix. Moved to a single generic implementation.
 2773 	* generic/tclMain.c:
 2774 	* library/init.tcl:
 2775 	* generic/tclInitScript.h (removed):
 2776 	* unix/Makefile.in:
 2777 	* win/tcl.dsp:
 2778 
 2779 	* unix/configure.in:	Updated TCL_PACKAGE_PATH value to handle
 2780 	* win/configure.in:	--libdir configuration.
 2781 
 2782 	* unix/configure.in:	autoconf-2.57
 2783 	* win/configure.in:
 2784 
 2785 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp): Moved call to
 2786 	TclInitEmbeddedConfigurationInformation() earlier in
 2787 	Tcl_CreateInterp() so that other parts of interp creation and
 2788 	initialization may access and use the config values.
 2789 
 2790 2004-06-11  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 2791 
 2792 	* win/tclAppInit.c: Restored the 'setargv' procedure when compiling
 2793 	with mingw. Apparently, the command line parsing in mingw doesn't work
 2794 	as well as that in vc++, and the result was (1) that winPipe-8.19
 2795 	failed, and (2) that 'make test' would work at all only with
 2796 	TESTFLAGS='-singleproc 1'. [Bug 967195]
 2797 
 2798 2004-06-10  Zoran Vasiljevic <vasiljevic@users.sf.net>
 2799 
 2800 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: removed forceful setting of the private cached
 2801 	current working directory rep from within the Tcl_FSChdir(). We
 2802 	delegate this task to the Tcl_FSGetCwd() which does this task anyway.
 2803 	The relevant code is still present but disabled temporarily until the
 2804 	change proves correct. The Tcl test suite passes all test with the
 2805 	given change so I suppose it is good enough.
 2806 
 2807 2004-06-10  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2808 
 2809 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath):	Disabled addition of
 2810 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath):	relative-to-executable
 2811 	directories to the library search path. A first step in reform of
 2812 	Tcl's startup process.
 2813 
 2814 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
 2815 	Attempts to directly run ./tclsh or ./tcltest out of a build directory
 2816 	will either fail, or will make use of an installed script library in
 2817 	preference to the one in the source tree. Use `make shell` or `make
 2818 	runtest` instead.
 2819 
 2820 	* tests/unixInit.test:	Modified tests to suit above changes.
 2821 
 2822 	* generic/tclPathObj.c:	Corrected [file tail] results when operating
 2823 	on a path produced by TclNewFSPathObj(). [Bug 970529]
 2824 
 2825 2004-06-09  Zoran Vasiljevic <vasiljevic@users.sf.net>
 2826 
 2827 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: partially corrected [Bug 932314]. Also
 2828 	corrected return values of Tcl_FSChdir() to reflect those of the
 2829 	underlying platform-specific call. Originally, return codes were mixed
 2830 	with those of Tcl.
 2831 
 2832 2004-06-08  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2833 
 2834 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
 2835 	* generic/tclExecute.c: handle warning [Bug 969066]
 2836 
 2837 2004-06-08  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2838 
 2839 	* generic/tclHash.c (RebuildTable): Move declaration of variable so it
 2840 	is only declared when it is used. [Bug 969068]
 2841 
 2842 2004-06-07  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2843 
 2844 	* doc/lsearch.n: Added correct option to example. [Bug 968219]
 2845 
 2846 2004-06-05  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 2847 
 2848 	* generic/tcl.h: Corrected Tcl_WideInt declarations so that the mingw
 2849 	build works again.
 2850 	* generic/tclDecls.h:			Changes to the tests for clock
 2851 	* generic/tclInt.decls:			frequency in Tcl_WinTime so
 2852 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:		that any clock frequency is
 2853 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h:		accepted provided that all
 2854 	* generic/tclPlatDecls.h:		CPU's in the system share a
 2855 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:		common chip, and hence,
 2856 	* tests/platform.test (platform-1.3):	presumably, a common clock.
 2857 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c (TclWinCPUID):	This change necessitated a
 2858 	* win/tclWinTest.c (TestwincpuidCmd)	small burst of assembly code
 2859 	* win/tclWinTime.c (Tcl_GetTime):	to read CPU ID information,
 2860 	which was added as TclWinCPUID in the internal Stubs. To test this
 2861 	code in the common case of a single-processor machine, a
 2862 	'testwincpuid' command was added to tclWinTest.c, and a test case in
 2863 	platform.test. Thanks to Jeff Godfrey and Richard Suchenwirth for
 2864 	reporting this bug. [Bug 976722]
 2865 
 2866 2004-06-04  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2867 
 2868 	* generic/tcl.h:	Restored #include <stdio.h> to tcl.h,
 2869 	rejecting the "fix" for "Bug" 945570. Tcl_FSSeek() needs the values of
 2870 	SEEK_SET, etc. and too many extensions rely on tcl.h providing stdio.h
 2871 	for them.
 2872 
 2873 2004-06-02  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2874 
 2875 	* win/tclWinFile.c (TclpFindExecutable): when using GetModuleFileNameA
 2876 	(Win9x), convert from CP_ACP to WCHAR then convert back to utf8.
 2877 	Adjunct to 2004-04-07 fix.
 2878 
 2879 2004-06-02  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2880 
 2881 	* tests/winPipe.test (winpipe-6.1): blocking set to 1 before closing
 2882 	to ensure we get an exitcode. The windows pipe channel driver doesn't
 2883 	differentiate between a blocking and non-blocking close just yet, but
 2884 	will soon. Part of [Bug 947693]
 2885 
 2886 2004-06-02  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 2887 
 2888 	* doc/file.n: fix to documentation of 'file volumes' (Bug 962435)
 2889 
 2890 2004-06-01  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2891 
 2892 	* win/makefile.vc: check for either MSDEVDIR or MSVCDIR being in the
 2893 	environment, for VC7. [Bug 942214]
 2894 
 2895 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_SetChannelOption): -buffersize wasn't
 2896 	understanding hexidecimal notation nor was reporting number conversion
 2897 	errors. The behavior to silently ignore settings outside the
 2898 	acceptable range of Tcl_SetChannelBufferSize (<10 or >1M) is
 2899 	unchanged. This silent ignoring behavior might be up for review soon.
 2900 
 2901 2004-05-30  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 2902 
 2903 	* win/tclWinPipe.c:
 2904 	* win/tclWinPort.h:  Reworked the win implementation of Tcl_WaitPid to
 2905 	support exitcodes in the 'signed short' range. Even though this range
 2906 	is non-portable, it is valid on windows. Detection of exception codes
 2907 	are now more accurate. Previously, an application that exited with
 2908 	ExitProcess((DWORD)-1); was improperly reported as exiting with
 2909 	SIGABRT.
 2910 
 2911 2004-05-30  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2912 
 2913 	* generic/tclInterp.c: Added comments describing the purposes of each
 2914 	function in the limit implementation and rewrote the names of some
 2915 	non-public functions for greater clarity of purpose.
 2916 	* doc/interp.n: Added note about what happens when a limited
 2917 	interpreter creates a slave interpreter.
 2918 	* doc/Limit.3: Added manual page for the resource limit subsystem's C
 2919 	API. [Bug 953903]
 2920 
 2921 2004-05-29  Joe English	 <jenglish@users.sourceforge.net>
 2922 
 2923 	* doc/global.n, doc/interp.n, doc/lrange.n: Fix minor markup errors.
 2924 
 2925 2004-05-28  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2926 
 2927 	* doc/*.n: Added examples to many (too many to list) more man pages.
 2928 
 2929 2004-05-25  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 2930 
 2931 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 2932 	* generic/tclVar.c: using (ptrdiff_t) instead of (int) casting to
 2933 	correct compiler warnings [Bug 961657], reported by Bob Techentin.
 2934 
 2935 2004-05-27  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 2936 
 2937 	* tests/clock.test: Added a single test for the presence of %G in
 2938 	[clock format], and conditioned out the clock-10.x series if they're
 2939 	all going to fail because of a broken strftime() call. [Bug 961714]
 2940 
 2941 2004-05-27  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2942 
 2943 	* generic/tclHash.c (CompareStringKeys): Added #ifdef to allow people
 2944 	to instruct this function to use strcmp(). [FRQ 951168]
 2945 
 2946 	* generic/tclVar.c: Moved declarations into #if guards so they only
 2947 	happen when required.
 2948 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h: Guard declaration of strtod() so it is only
 2949 	enabled when we don't have a declaration in stdlib.h
 2950 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c (Tcl_CreateThread):	Added declarations
 2951 	* unix/tclUnixTest.c (AlarmHandler):		and casts so that
 2952 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (TtyModemStatusStr):	all functions are
 2953 	* generic/tclScan.c (Tcl_ScanObjCmd):		defined before use
 2954 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (InvalidateDictChain):	and no cross-type
 2955 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd):	uses are performed.
 2956 
 2957 	The overall effect is to make building with gcc with the additional
 2958 	flags -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes produce no increase in
 2959 	the total number of warnings (except for main(), which is undeclared
 2960 	for traditional reasons.)
 2961 
 2962 2004-05-26  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2963 
 2964 	* unix/Makefile.in:  Rework configure ordering to TCL_LINK_LIBS,
 2965 	* unix/tcl.m4:	     ENABLE_SHARED, CONFIG_CFLAGS, & ENABLE_SYMBOLS
 2966 	* unix/configure:    before TCL_EARLY_FLAGS and TCL_64BIT_FLAGS
 2967 	* unix/configure.in: (about 400 lines earlier) in configure.in. This
 2968 	forces CFLAGS configuration to be done before many tests, which is
 2969 	needed for 64-bit builds and may affect other builds. Also make
 2970 	CONFIG_CFLAGS append to CFLAGS directly instead of using EXTRA_CFLAGS,
 2971 	and have LDFLAGS append to any existing value. [Bug 874058]
 2972 	* unix/dltest/Makefile.in: change EXTRA_CFLAGS to DEFS
 2973 
 2974 2004-05-26  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 2975 
 2976 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Correction to debug prints and testing
 2977 	* library/tcltest/pkgIndex.tcl:	if TCLTEST_OPTIONS value. Corrected
 2978 	* tests/tcltest.test:		double increment of numTestFiles in
 2979 	-singleproc 1 configurations. Updated tcltest-19.1 to tcltest 2.1
 2980 	behavior. Corrected tcltest-25.3 to not falsely report a failure in
 2981 	tcltest.test. Bumped to tcltest 2.2.6. [Bugs 960560, 960926]
 2982 
 2983 2004-05-25  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 2984 
 2985 	* doc/http.n (http::config): add -urlencoding option (default utf-8)
 2986 	* library/http/http.tcl:     that specifies encoding conversion of
 2987 	* library/http/pkgIndex.tcl: args for http::formatQuery. Previously
 2988 	* tests/http.test:	     undefined, RFC 2718 says it should be
 2989 	utf-8. 'http::config -urlencoding {}' returns previous behavior, which
 2990 	will throw errors processing non-latin-1 chars. Bumped http package to
 2991 	2.5.0.
 2992 
 2993 2004-05-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 2994 
 2995 	* generic/tclInterp.c (DeleteScriptLimitCallback): Move all deletion
 2996 	of script callback hash table entries to happen here so the entries
 2997 	are correctly removed at the right time. [Bug 960410]
 2998 
 2999 2004-05-25  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3000 
 3001 	* docs/global.n: added details for qualified variable names [Bug
 3002 	959831]
 3003 
 3004 2004-05-25  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3005 
 3006 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_FindNamespaceVar):
 3007 	* tests/namespace.test (namespace-17.10-12): reverted commit of
 3008 	2004-05-23 and removed the tests, as it interferes with the varname
 3009 	resolver and there are apps that break (AlphaTk). A fix will have to
 3010 	wait for Tcl9.
 3011 
 3012 	* generic/tclVar.c: Caching of namespace variables disabled: no simple
 3013 	way was found to avoid interfering with the resolver's idea of
 3014 	variable existence. A cached varName may keep a variable's name in the
 3015 	namespace's hash table, which is the resolver's criterion for
 3016 	existence.
 3017 
 3018 	* tests/namespace.c (namespace-17.10): testing for interference
 3019 	between varname caching and name resolver.
 3020 
 3021 2004-05-25  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 3022 
 3023 	* tests/winFCmd.test: Correct test for the presence of a CD-ROM so
 3024 	that it doesn't misdetect some other sort of filesystem with a
 3025 	write-protected root as being a CD-ROM drive. [Bug 918267]
 3026 
 3027 2004-05-25  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3028 
 3029 	* tests/winPipe.test:	Protect against path being set
 3030 	* tests/unixInit.test:	Unset path when done.
 3031 	* tests/unload.test (unload-3.1): Verify [pkgb_sub] does not exist.
 3032 	Delete interps when done.
 3033 	* tests/stringComp.test:	stop re-use of string.test test names
 3034 	* tests/regexpComp.test:	stop re-use of regexp.test test names
 3035 	* tests/namespace.test (namespace-46.3): Verify [p] does not exist.
 3036 	* tests/http.test:	Clear away the custom [bgerror] when done.
 3037 	* tests/io.test:	Take care to use namespace variables.
 3038 	* tests/autoMkindex.test (autoMkindex-5.2): Use variable "result"
 3039 	that gets cleaned up.
 3040 	* tests/exec.test:	Clean up the "path" array.
 3041 	* tests/interp.test (interp-9.3): Initialize res, so prior values
 3042 	cannot make the test fail.
 3043 	* tests/execute.test (execute-8.1):  Updated to remove the trace set
 3044 	on ::errorInfo. When left in place, that trace can cause later tests
 3045 	to fail.
 3046 
 3047 2004-05-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3048 
 3049 	* generic/tclBasic.c: Removed references to Tcl_RenameCommand from
 3050 	* generic/tcl.h:      comments. [Bug 848440, second part]
 3051 
 3052 	* tests/fCmd.test: Rewrote tests that failed consistently on NFS so
 3053 	they either succeed (through slightly more liberal matching of the
 3054 	results) or are constrained to not run. [Bug 931312]
 3055 
 3056 	* doc/bgerror.n: Use idiomatic open flags for working with log
 3057 	files. [Bug 959602]
 3058 
 3059 2004-05-24  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3060 
 3061 	* generic/tclExecute.c (VerifyExprObjType): use GET_WIDE_OR_INT to
 3062 	properly have tclIntType used for smaller values. This corrects [TclX
 3063 	Bug 896727] and any other 3rd party extension that created math
 3064 	functions but was not yet WIDE_INT aware in them.
 3065 
 3066 2004-05-24  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3067 
 3068 	* generic/tclInterp.c (TclInitLimitSupport): Made limits work on
 3069 	platforms where sizeof(void*)!=sizeof(int). [Bug 959193]
 3070 
 3071 2004-05-24 Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3072 
 3073 	* doc/set.n: accurate description of name resolution process,
 3074 	referring to namespace.n for details [Bug 959180]
 3075 
 3076 2004-05-23  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3077 
 3078 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (Tcl_FindNamespaceVar): [Bug 959052] fixed,
 3079 	insuring that no "zombie" variables are found.
 3080 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclLookupSimpleVar): comments re [Bug 736729]
 3081 	(predecessor of [Bug 959052]) removed.
 3082 	* tests/namespace.test: added tests 17.10-12
 3083 
 3084 	The patch modifies non-documented behaviour, and passes every test in
 3085 	the testsuite. However, scripts relying on the old behaviour may
 3086 	break.
 3087 	Note that the only behaviour change concerns the creative writing of
 3088 	unset variables. More precisely, which variable will be created when
 3089 	neither a namespace variable nor a global variable by that name
 3090 	exists, as defined by [info vars]. The new behaviour is that the
 3091 	namespace resolution process deems a variable to exist exactly when
 3092 	[info vars] finds it - ie, either it has value, or else it was "fixed"
 3093 	by a call to [variable].
 3094 	Note: this patch was removed on 2002-05-25.
 3095 
 3096 2004-05-22  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3097 
 3098 	* generic/tclVar.c (TclObjLookupVar, TclObjUnsetVar2): fix for new (in
 3099 	tcl8.4) exteriorisations of [Bug 736729] due to the use of
 3100 	tclNsVarNameType obj types. Reenabling the use of this objType ("VAR
 3101 	ref absolute" benchmark down to 66 ms, from 230). Added comments in
 3102 	TclLookupSimpleVar explaining my current understanding of [Bug
 3103 	736729].
 3104 
 3105 2004-05-22  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3106 
 3107 	* generic/tclVar.c: fix for [Bug 735335]. The use of tclNsVarNameType
 3108 	objs is still disabled, pending resolution of [Bug 736729].
 3109 
 3110 2004-05-21  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3111 
 3112 	* tests/namespace.test (namespace-41.3): removed the {knownBug}
 3113 	constraint: [Bug 231259] is closed since nov 2001, and the fix of [Bug
 3114 	729692] (INST_START_CMD) makes the test succeed.
 3115 
 3116 2004-05-21  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3117 
 3118 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Move a few declarations a
 3119 	short distance so pre-C99 compilers can cope. Also fix so
 3120 	TCL_COMPILE_DEBUG path compiles...
 3121 
 3122 2004-05-21  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3123 
 3124 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): reorganised TEBC
 3125 	automatic variables, defining them in tight blocks instead of at the
 3126 	function level. This has three purposes:
 3127 	- it simplifies the analysis of individual instructions
 3128 	- it is preliminary work to the non-recursive engine
 3129 	- it allows a better register allocation by the optimiser; under
 3130 	gcc3.3, this results in up to 10% runtime in some tests
 3131 
 3132 2004-05-20  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3133 
 3134 	* generic/tclInterp.c (TclLimitRemoveAllHandlers):
 3135 	* generic/tclBasic.c (DeleteInterpProc):
 3136 	* tests/interp.test (interp-34.7): Ensure that all limit callbacks are
 3137 	deleted when their interpreters are deleted. [Bug 956083]
 3138 
 3139 2004-05-19  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 3140 
 3141 	* win/tclWinFile.c (TclpMatchInDirectory): fix for an issue where
 3142 	there was a sneak path from Tcl_DStringFree to SetErrorCode(0). The
 3143 	result was that the error code could be reset between a call to
 3144 	FindFirstFileEx and the check of its status return, leading to a
 3145 	bizarre error return of {POSIX unknown {No error}}. (Found in
 3146 	unplanned test - no incident logged at SourceForge.)
 3147 
 3148 2004-05-19  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3149 
 3150 	* tests/interp.test (interp-34.3): Rewrite this test to see if a time
 3151 	limit can catch a tight bytecode loop, a maximally aggressive
 3152 	denial-of-service attack.
 3153 	* generic/tclInterp.c (Tcl_LimitCheck): Fix the sense of checks to see
 3154 	whether a time limit has been extended.
 3155 
 3156 	* tests/*.test: Many minor fixes, including ensuring that every test
 3157 	is run (so constraints control whether the test is doing anything) and
 3158 	making sure that constraints are always set using the API instead of
 3159 	poking around inside tcltest's internal datastructures. Also got rid
 3160 	of all trailing whitespace lines from the test suite!
 3161 
 3162 2004-05-19  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
 3163 
 3164 	* generic/tclIO.c: Fixed [SF Tcl Bug 943274]. This is the same problem
 3165 	* generic/tclIO.h: as [SF Tcl Bug 462317], see ChangeLog entry
 3166 	2001-09-26. The fix done at that time is incomplete. It is possible to
 3167 	get around it if the actual read operation is defered and not executed
 3168 	in the event handler itself. Instead of tracking if we are in an read
 3169 	caused by a synthesized fileevent we now track if the OS has delivered
 3170 	a true event = actual data and bypass the driver if a read finds that
 3171 	there is no actual data waiting. The flag is cleared by a short or
 3172 	full read.
 3173 
 3174 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY*** for channel drivers.
 3175 
 3176 2004-05-17  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3177 
 3178 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: fix to (Bug 956063) in 'file dirname'.
 3179 	* tests/cmdAH.test: added test for this bug.
 3180 
 3181 	* doc/FileSystem.3: better documentation of refCount requirements of
 3182 	some FS functions (Bug 956126)
 3183 
 3184 2004-05-19  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3185 
 3186 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestgetintCmd): Made the tests in get.test check
 3187 	* tests/get.test:		     Tcl_GetInt() since the core now
 3188 					     avoids that function.
 3189 
 3190 2004-05-18  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 3191 
 3192 	* compat/strftime.c (_fmt, ISO8601Week):
 3193 	* doc/clock.n:
 3194 	* tests/clock.test: Major rework to the handling of ISO8601 week
 3195 	numbers. Now passes all the %G and %V test cases on Windows, Linux and
 3196 	Solaris [Bugs 500285, 500389, and 852944]
 3197 
 3198 2004-05-18  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3199 
 3200 	* doc/append.n, doc/upvar.n: Added example.
 3201 
 3202 2004-05-18  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3203 
 3204 	* win/makefile.vc: now generates a tclConfig.sh from Pat Thoyts [Patch
 3205 	909911]
 3206 
 3207 2004-05-18  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3208 
 3209 	* doc/lsearch.n: Improve clarity (based on [Patch 955361] by Peter
 3210 	Spjuth)
 3211 
 3212 	* tools/man2help2.tcl (macro,SHmacro): Added support for subsection
 3213 	(.SS) header macros.
 3214 
 3215 	* doc/interp.n: Added user documentation for the TIP#143 resource
 3216 	limits and some examples.
 3217 
 3218 	* generic/tclInterp.c (Tcl_LimitCheck, Tcl_LimitTypeReset): Reset the
 3219 	limit-exceeded flag when removing a limit.
 3220 
 3221 2004-05-18  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3222 
 3223 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): added comments to
 3224 	classify the variables according to their use in TEBC.
 3225 
 3226 2004-05-17  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3227 
 3228 	* doc/global.n, doc/uplevel.n: Added an example.
 3229 
 3230 	* tests/info.test (info-3.1): Corrected test result back to what it
 3231 	used to be in Tcl 7.* now that command counts are being correctly kept
 3232 
 3233 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC:INST_START_CMD): Make sure that the
 3234 	command-count is always advanced. Allows TIP#143 limits to tell that
 3235 	work is being done.
 3236 
 3237 	* doc/list.n: Updated example to fit with the unified format.
 3238 	* doc/seek.n: Added some examples.
 3239 
 3240 2004-05-17  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3241 
 3242 	* win/tclWinFile.c:
 3243 	* tests/cmdAH.test: fix to (Bug 954263) where 'file executable' was
 3244 	case-sensitive.
 3245 
 3246 2004-05-17  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3247 
 3248 	* doc/OpenFileChnl.3: Documented type of 'offset' argument to Tcl_Seek
 3249 	was wrong. [Bug 953374]
 3250 
 3251 2004-05-16  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3252 
 3253 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): remove one level of
 3254 	indirection for compiledLocals addressing.
 3255 
 3256 2004-05-16  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3257 
 3258 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_CALL_FUNC1): bugfix; restored
 3259 	(DE)CACHE_STACK_INFO pair around the call - the user defined math
 3260 	function could cause a recursive call to TEBC.
 3261 
 3262 2004-05-16  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3263 
 3264 	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_DeleteInterp):
 3265 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_START_CMD): interp deletion now modifies
 3266 	the compileEpoch, eliminating the need for the check for interp
 3267 	deletion in INST_START_CMD.
 3268 
 3269 2004-05-16  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3270 
 3271 	* generic/tclCompile.h:
 3272 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
 3273 	* generic/tclExecute.c: changed implementation of {expand}, last
 3274 	chance while in alpha as ...
 3275 
 3276 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
 3277 	Scripts precompiled with ProComp under previous tcl8.5a versions may
 3278 	malfunction due to changed instruction numbers for
 3279 	INST_LIST_INDEX_IMM, INST_LIST_RANGE_IMM and INST_START_CMD.
 3280 
 3281 2004-05-14  Kevin B. Kenny  <kennykb@acm.org>
 3282 
 3283 	* generic/tclInt.decls:	     Promoted TclpLocaltime and TclpGmtime
 3284 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:     from Unix-specific stubs to the generic
 3285 	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h: internal Stubs table. Reran 'genstubs'
 3286 	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
 3287 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:
 3288 
 3289 	* generic/tclClock.c: Changed a buggy 'GMT' timezone specification
 3290 			      to the correct 'GMT0'. [Bug 922848]
 3291 
 3292 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c: Moved TclpGmtime and TclpLocaltime to
 3293 			      unix/tclUnixTime.c where they belong.
 3294 
 3295 	* unix/tclUnixTime.c (TclpGmtime, TclpLocaltime, TclpGetTimeZone,
 3296 			      ThreadSafeGMTime [removed],
 3297 			      ThreadSafeLocalTime [removed],
 3298 			      SetTZIfNecessary, CleanupMemory):
 3299 	Restructured to make sure that the same mutex protects all calls to
 3300 	localtime, gmtime, and tzset. Added a check in front of those calls to
 3301 	make sure that the TZ env var hasn't changed since the last call to
 3302 	tzset, and repeat tzset if necessary. [Bug 942078] Removed a buggy
 3303 	test of the Daylight Saving Time information in 'gettimeofday' in
 3304 	favor of applying 'localtime' to a known value. [Bug 922848]
 3305 
 3306 	* tests/clock.test (clock-3.14): Added test to make sure that changes
 3307 	to $env(TZ) take effect immediately.
 3308 
 3309 	* win/tclWinTime.c (TclpLocaltime, TclpGmtime): Added porting layer
 3310 	for 'localtime' and 'gmtime' calls.
 3311 
 3312 2004-05-14  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3313 
 3314 	* generic/tclExecute.c:
 3315 	* generic/tclCompile.h: the math functions receive a pointer to top of
 3316 	the stack (tosPtr) instead of the execution environment (eePtr). First
 3317 	step towards a change in the execution stack management - it is now
 3318 	only used within TEBC.
 3319 
 3320 2004-05-13  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3321 
 3322 	TIP#143 IMPLEMENTATION
 3323 
 3324 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclCompEvalObj, TclExecuteByteCode):
 3325 	* generic/tclBasic.c (TclEvalObjvInternal): Enable limit checking.
 3326 	* generic/tclInterp.c (Tcl_Limit*): Public limit API.
 3327 	* generic/tcl.decls:
 3328 	* tests/interp.test: Basic tests of command limits.
 3329 
 3330 	* doc/binary.n:		TIP#129 IMPLEMENTATION [Patch 858211]
 3331 	* generic/tclBinary.c:	Note that the test suite probably has many more
 3332 	* tests/binary.test:	failures now due to alterations in constraints.
 3333 
 3334 2004-05-12  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3335 
 3336 	Optimisations for INST_START_CMD [Bug 926164].
 3337 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript): avoid emitting
 3338 	INST_START_CMD as the first instruction in a bytecoded Tcl_Obj. It is
 3339 	not needed, as the checks are done before calling TEBC.
 3340 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): runtime peephole
 3341 	optimisation: check at INST_POP if the next instruction is
 3342 	INST_START_CMD, in which case we fall through.
 3343 
 3344 2004-05-11  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3345 
 3346 	* doc/split.n, doc/join.n: Updated examples and added more.
 3347 
 3348 2004-05-11  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3349 
 3350 	* doc/glob.n: documented behaviour of symbolic links with 'glob -types
 3351 	d' (Bug 951489)
 3352 
 3353 2004-05-11  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3354 
 3355 	* doc/scan.n: Updated the examples to be clearer about their relevance
 3356 	to the scan command.
 3357 
 3358 2004-05-10  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3359 
 3360 	* doc/scan.n: Added examples.
 3361 
 3362 2004-05-10  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3363 
 3364 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (BuildCommandLine): Moved non-obvious appending
 3365 	logic to outside the loop and added commentary for its purpose. Also
 3366 	use the existence of contents in the linePtr rather than the scratch
 3367 	DString post the append, as this more clear.
 3368 
 3369 	(TclpCreateProcess): When under NT, with no console, and executing a
 3370 	DOS application, the path priming does not need an ending space as
 3371 	BuildCommandLine() will do this for us.
 3372 
 3373 2004-05-08  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3374 
 3375 	* generic/tclFileName.c:
 3376 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: remove some compiler warnings on MacOS X.
 3377 
 3378 2004-05-07  Chengye Mao <chengye.geo@yahoo.com>
 3379 
 3380 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: refixed bug 789040 re-entered in rev 1.41. Let's
 3381 	be careful and don't re-enter previously fixed bugs.
 3382 
 3383 2004-05-08  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3384 
 3385 	* doc/format.n: Added examples.
 3386 
 3387 2004-05-07  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3388 
 3389 	* doc/unset.n: added upvar.n to the "see also" list
 3390 
 3391 2004-05-07  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 3392 
 3393 	* generic/tclEncoding.c:
 3394 	* tests/encoding.test: added support and tests for translating
 3395 	embedded null characters between real nullbytes and the internal
 3396 	representation on input/output [Bug 949905].
 3397 
 3398 2004-05-07  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3399 
 3400 	* generic/tclFileName.c:
 3401 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:
 3402 	* generic/tclFileSystem.h:
 3403 	* tests/fileSystem.test: fix for [Bug 943995], in which vfs-registered
 3404 	root volumes were not handled correctly as glob patterns in all
 3405 	circumstances.
 3406 
 3407 2004-05-06  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3408 
 3409 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 3410 	* generic/tclObj.c (TclFreeObj): made TclFreeObj use the new macro
 3411 	TclFreeObjMacro(), so that the allocation and freeing of Tcl_Obj is
 3412 	defined in a single spot (the macros in tclInt.h), with the exception
 3413 	of the TCL_MEM_DEBUG case.
 3414 	The #ifdef logic for the corresponding macros has been reformulated to
 3415 	make it clearer.
 3416 
 3417 2004-05-05  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3418 
 3419 	* doc/break.n, doc/continue.n, doc/for.n, doc/while.n: More examples.
 3420 
 3421 2004-05-05  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3422 
 3423 	* tests/unixInit.test (unixInit-2.10):	Test correction for Mac OSX.
 3424 	Be sure to consistently compare normalized path names. Thanks to
 3425 	Steven Abner (tauvan). [Bug 948177]
 3426 
 3427 2004-05-05  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3428 
 3429 	* doc/CrtObjCmd.3: Remove reference to Tcl_RenameCommand; there is no
 3430 	such API. [Bug 848440]
 3431 
 3432 2004-05-05  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3433 
 3434 	* win/tclWinSock.c (SocketEventProc) : connect errors should fire both
 3435 	the readable and writable handlers because this is how it works on
 3436 	UNIX [Bug 794839]
 3437 
 3438 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (TclFinalizeEncodingSubsystem):
 3439 	FreeEncoding(systemEncoding); moved to before the hash table iteration
 3440 	as it was causing a double free attempt under some conditions.
 3441 
 3442 	* win/coffbase.txt: Added the tls extension to the list of preferred
 3443 	load addresses.
 3444 
 3445 2004-05-04  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3446 
 3447 	* tests/fileSystem.test (filesystem-1.39): replace 'file volumes'
 3448 	* tests/fileName.test (filename-12.9,10):  lindex with direct C:/
 3449 	hard-coded because A:/ was being used and that is empty for most.
 3450 
 3451 	* tests/winFCmd.test (winFCmd-16.12): test volumerelative $HOME
 3452 
 3453 2004-05-04  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3454 
 3455 	* generic/tclAlloc.c:		Make sure Tclp*Alloc* routines get
 3456 	* generic/tclInt.h:		declared in the TCL_MEM_DEBUG and
 3457 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c:	TCL_THREADS configuration. [Bug 947564]
 3458 
 3459 	* tests/tcltest.test:	Test corrections for Mac OSX. Thanks to Steven
 3460 	Abner (tauvan). [Bug 947440]
 3461 
 3462 2004-05-04  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3463 
 3464 	* generic/tclEvent.c (TclSetLibraryPath): Suppress a warning.
 3465 
 3466 2004-05-03  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
 3467 
 3468 	* Applied [Patch 868853], fixing a mem leak in TtySetOptionProc.

 3470 
 3471 2004-05-03  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3472

 3474 
 3475 2004-05-03  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3476 
 3477 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript): setting the compilation
 3478 	namespace outside of the loop.
 3479 
 3480 2004-05-03  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3481 
 3482 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
 3483 	* generic/tclInt.h: reverted fix for [Bug 926445] of 2004-04-02,
 3484 	restoring TCL_ALIGN to the header file. Todd Helfter reported that the
 3485 	macro is required by tbcload.
 3486 
 3487 2004-05-03  Kevin Kenny	 <kennykb@acm.org>
 3488 
 3489 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c (TclpCheckStackSpace):
 3490 	* tests/stack.test (stack-3.1): Fix for undetected stack overflow in
 3491 	TclReExec on Windows. [Bug 947070]

 3498 2004-05-02  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3499 
 3500 	* generic/tclProc.c (TclObjInvokeProc):
 3501 	* tests/proc.test (proc-3.6): fix for bad quoting of multi-word proc
 3502 	names in error messages [Bug 942757]
 3503 
 3504 2004-04-30  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3505 
 3506 	* doc/glob.n, doc/incr.n, doc/set.n:	More examples.
 3507 	* doc/if.n, doc/rename.n, doc/time.n:
 3508 
 3509 2004-04-30  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3510 
 3511 	* generic/tclInt.h:		Replaced Kevin Kenny's temporary
 3512 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c:	fix for Bug 945447 with a cleaner,
 3513 	more permanent replacement.
 3514 
 3515 2004-04-30  Kevin B. Kenny   <kennykb@acm.org>
 3516 
 3517 	* generic/tclThreadAlloc.c: Added a temporary (or so I hope!)
 3518 	inclusion of "tclWinInt.h" to avoid problems when compiling on
 3519 	Win32-VC++ with --enable-threads. [Bug 945447]
 3520 
 3521 2004-04-30  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3522 
 3523 	* doc/puts.n: Added a few examples.

 3525 2004-04-29  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3526 
 3527 	* tests/execute.test (execute-8.2):	Avoid crashes when there is
 3528 	limited system stack space (threads-enabled).

 3543 2004-04-26  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3544 
 3545 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c (TclpObjNormalizePath):  Corrected improper
 3546 	positioning of returned checkpoint. [Bug 941108]
 3547 
 3548 2004-04-26  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3549 
 3550 	* doc/open.n, doc/close.n: Updated (thanks to David Welton) to be
 3551 	clearer about pipeline errors and added example to open(n) that shows
 3552 	simple pipeline use. [Patches 941377,941380]
 3553 
 3554 	* doc/DictObj.3: Added warning about the use of Tcl_DictObjDone and an
 3555 	example of use of iteration. [Bug 940843]
 3556 
 3557 	* doc/Thread.3: Reworked to remove references to testing interfaces
 3558 	and instead promote the use of the Thread package. [Patch 932527]
 3559 	Also reworked and reordered the page for better readability.
 3560 
 3561 2004-04-25  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3562 
 3563 	* generic/tcl.h:	Removed obsolete declarations and #include's.
 3564 	* generic/tclInt.h:	[Bugs 926459, 926486]
 3565 
 3566 2004-04-24  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3567 
 3568 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c (DllMain): Added DisableThreadLibraryCalls() for
 3569 	the DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH case. We're not interested in knowing about
 3570 	DLL_THREAD_ATTACH, so disable the notices.
 3571 
 3572 2004-04-24  Daniel Steffen  <das@users.sourceforge.net>
 3573 
 3574 	* generic/tclPort.h:
 3575 	* macosx/Makefile:
 3576 	* unix/Makefile.in: followup on tcl header reform [FR 922727]: removed
 3577 	use of relative #include paths in tclPort.h to allow installation of
 3578 	private headers outside of tcl source tree; added 'unix' dir to
 3579 	compiler header search path; add newly required tcl private headers to
 3580 	Tcl.framework on Mac OSX.
 3581 
 3582 2004-04-23  Andreas Kupries  <andreask@activestate.com>
 3583 
 3584 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_SetChannelOption): Fixed [SF Tcl Bug 930851].
 3585 	When changing the eofchar we have to zap the related flags to prevent
 3586 	them from prematurely aborting the next read.
 3587 
 3588 2004-04-25  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3589 
 3590 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: fix to [Bug 940281]. Tcl_FSJoinPath will now
 3591 	always return a valid Tcl_Obj when the input is valid.
 3592 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fix to [Bug 931823] for a more consistent
 3593 	Tcl_FSPathSeparator() implementation which allows filesystems not to
 3594 	implement their Tcl_FSFilesystemSeparatorProc if they wish to use the
 3595 	default '/'. Also fixed associated memory leak seen with, e.g., tclvfs
 3596 	package.
 3597 	* doc/FileSystem.3: documented Tcl_FSJoinPath return values more
 3598 	clearly, and Tcl_FSFilesystemSeparatorProc requirements.
 3599 
 3600 2004-04-23  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3601 
 3602 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: Removed my mistake from 4/19 of adding an exit
 3603 	handler to TclWinInit. TclWinEncodingsCleanup called from
 3604 	TclFinalizeFilesystem does the Tcl_FreeEncoding for us.
 3605 
 3606 	* win/tclWinChan.c (Tcl_MakeFileChannel): Case for CloseHandle
 3607 	returning zero and not throwing a
 3608 	RaiseException(EXCEPTION_INVALID_HANDLE) now being done.
 3609 
 3610 2004-04-22  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3611 
 3612 	* generic/tclEvent.c: TclSetLibraryPath's use of caching the stringrep
 3613 	of the pathPtr object to TclGetLibraryPath called from another thread
 3614 	was ineffective if the original's stringrep had been invalidated as
 3615 	what happens when it gets muted to a list.
 3616 
 3617 	* win/tclWinTime.c: If the Tcl_ExitProc (StopCalibration) is called
 3618 	from the stack frame of DllMain's PROCESS_DETACH, the wait operation
 3619 	should timeout and continue.
 3620 
 3621 	* generic/tclInt.h:
 3622 	* generic/tclThread.c:
 3623 	* generic/tclEvent.c:
 3624 	* unix/tclUnixThrd.c:
 3625 	* win/tclWinThrd.c: Provisions made so masterLock, initLock, allocLock
 3626 	and joinLock mutexes can be recovered during Tcl_Finalize.
 3627 
 3628 2004-04-22  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3629 
 3630 	* doc/switch.n: Reworked the examples to be more systematically named
 3631 	and to cover some TIP#75 capabilities.
 3632 
 3633 	* doc/cd.n: Documentation clarification from David Welton.
 3634 
 3635 	* doc/exec.n: Added some examples, Windows ones from Arjen Markus and
 3636 	Unix ones by myself.
 3637 
 3638 2004-04-21  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3639 
 3640 	* doc/Hash.3: Added note to Tcl_{First,Next}HashEntry docs that
 3641 	deleting the element they return is supported (and is in fact the only
 3642 	safe update you can do to the structure of a hashtable while an
 3643 	iteration is going over it.)
 3644 
 3645 	* doc/bgerror.n: Added example from David Welton. [Patch 939473]
 3646 
 3647 	* doc/after.n: Added examples from David Welton. [Patch 938820]
 3648 
 3649 2004-04-19  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 3650 
 3651 	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: Added an exit handler in TclWinInit() so
 3652 	tclWinTCharEncoding could be freed during Tcl_Finalize().
 3653 
 3654 	* generic/tclEncoding.c: Added FreeEncoding(systemEncoding) in
 3655 	TclFinalizeEncodingSubsystem because its ref count was incremented in
 3656 	TclInitEncodingSubsystem.
 3657 
 3658 2004-04-19  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3659 
 3660 	* doc/read.n: Added example from David Welton. [Patch 938056]
 3661 
 3662 2004-04-19  Kevin B. Kenny   <kennykb@acm.org>
 3663 
 3664 	* generic/tclObj.c (Tcl_GetDoubleFromObj) Corrected "short circuit"
 3665 	conversion of int to double. Reported by Jeff Hobbs on the Tcl'ers
 3666 	Chat.
 3667 
 3668 2004-04-16  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3669 
 3670 	* doc/lreplace.n, doc/lrange.n, doc/llength.n:	More examples for

 3672 
 3673 2004-04-16  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3674 
 3675 	* doc/FileSystem.3: Corrected documentation of Tcl_FSUtime, and the
 3676 	corresponding filesystem driver Tcl_FSUtimeProc. [Bug 935838]
 3677 
 3678 2004-04-16  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3679 
 3680 	* doc/socket.n: Added example from [Patch 936245].
 3681 	* doc/gets.n: Added example based on [Patch 935911].
 3682 
 3683 2004-04-15  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3684 
 3685 	* generic/tclClock.c (Tcl_ClockObjCmd): Minor fault in a [clock
 3686 	clicks] error message.
 3687 
 3688 2004-04-07  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 3689 
 3690 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpSetInitialEncodings): note that WIN32_CE is
 3691 	also a unicode platform.
 3692 	* generic/tclEncoding.c (TclFindEncodings, Tcl_FindExecutable):
 3693 	* generic/tclInt.h:			    Correct handling of UTF
 3694 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath): data that is actually
 3695 	* win/tclWinFile.c (TclpFindExecutable):    "clean", allowing the
 3696 	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpInitLibraryPath):   loading of Tcl from paths
 3697 	that contain multi-byte chars on Windows [Bug 920667]
 3698 
 3699 	* win/configure:    define TCL_LIB_FLAG, TCL_BUILD_LIB_SPEC,
 3700 	* win/configure.in: TCL_LIB_SPEC, TCL_PACKAGE_PATH in tclConfig.sh.
 3701 
 3702 2004-04-06  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3703 
 3704 	Patch 922727 committed.	 Implements three changes:
 3705 
 3706 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Reworked the Tcl header files into a clean
 3707 	* unix/tclUnixPort.h:	hierarchy where tcl.h < tclPort.h < tclInt.h
 3708 	* win/tclWinInt.h:	and every C source file should #include
 3709 	* win/tclWinPort.h:	at most one of those files to satisfy its
 3710 	declaration needs. tclWinInt.h and tclWinPort.h also better organized
 3711 	so that tclWinPort.h includes the Windows implementation of
 3712 	cross-platform declarations, while tclWinInt.h makes declarations that
 3713 	are available on Windows only.
 3714 
 3715 	* generic/tclBinary.c (TCL_NO_MATH):	Deleted the generic/tclMath.h
 3716 	* generic/tclMath.h (removed):		header file. The internal Tcl
 3717 	* macosx/Makefile (PRIVATE_HEADERS):	header, tclInt.h, has a
 3718 	* win/tcl.dsp:				#include <math.h> directly,
 3719 	and file external to Tcl needing libm should do the same.
 3720 
 3721 	* win/Makefile.in (WIN_OBJS):	Deleted the win/tclWinMtherr.c file.
 3722 	* win/makefile.bc (TCLOBJS):	It's a vestige from matherr() days
 3723 	* win/makefile.vc (TCLOBJS):	gone by.
 3724 	* win/tcl.dsp:
 3725 	* win/tclWinMtherr.c (removed):
 3726 
 3727 	End Patch 922727.
 3728 
 3729 	* tests/unixInit.test (unixInit-3.1):	Default encoding on Darwin
 3730 	systems is utf-8. Thanks to Steven Abner (tauvan). [Bug 928808]
 3731 
 3732 2004-04-06  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3733 
 3734 	* tests/cmdAH.test (cmdAH-18.2): Added constraint because
 3735 	access(...,X_OK) is defined to be permitted to be meaningless when
 3736 	running as root, and OSX exhibits this. [Bug 929892]
 3737 
 3738 2004-04-02  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3739 
 3740 	* generic/tclCompile.c:
 3741 	* generic/tclInt.h: removed the macro TCL_ALIGN() from tclInt.h,
 3742 	replaced by the static macro ALIGN() in tclCompile.c [Bug 926445]
 3743 
 3744 2004-04-02  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3745 
 3746 	* generic/tclCompile.h: removed redundant #ifdef _TCLINT [Bug 928415],
 3747 	reported by tauvan.
 3748 
 3749 2004-04-02  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3750 
 3751 	* tests/tcltest.test: Corrected constraint typos: "nonRoot" ->
 3752 	"notRoot". Thanks to Steven Abner (tauvan). [Bug 928353]
 3753 
 3754 2004-04-01  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3755 
 3756 	* generic/tclInt.h:  Removed obsolete tclBlockTime* declarations. [Bug
 3757 	926454]
 3758 
 3759 2004-04-01  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3760 
 3761 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: Fix to privately reported vfs bug with 'glob
 3762 	-type d -dir . *' across a vfs boundary. No tests for this are
 3763 	currently possible without effectively moving tclvfs into Tcl's test
 3764 	suite.
 3765 
 3766 2004-03-31  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3767 
 3768 	* doc/msgcat.n:	Clarified message catalog file encodings. [Bug 811457]
 3769 	* library/msgcat/msgcat.tcl: Updated internals to make use of [dict]s
 3770 	to store message catalog data and to use [source -encoding utf-8] to
 3771 	access catalog files. Thanks to Michael Sclenker. [Patch 875055, RFE
 3772 	811459] Corrected [mcset] to be able to successfully set a translation
 3773 	to the empty string. [mcset $loc $src {}] was incorrectly set the $loc
 3774 	translation of $src back to $src. Also changed [ConvertLocale] to
 3775 	minimally require a non-empty "language" part in the locale value. If
 3776 	not, an error raised prompts [Init] to keep looking for a valid locale
 3777 	value, or ultimately fall back on the "C" locale. [Bug 811461].
 3778 	* library/msgcat/pkgIndex.tcl:	Bump to msgcat 1.4.1.
 3779 
 3780 2004-03-30  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3781 
 3782 	* generic/tclHash.c (HashStringKey): Cleaned up. This function is not
 3783 	faster, but it is a little bit clearer.
 3784 	* generic/tclLiteral.c (HashString): Applied logic from HashObjKey.
 3785 	* generic/tclObj.c (HashObjKey): Rewrote to fix fault which hashed
 3786 	every single-character object to the same hash bucket. The new code is
 3787 	shorter, simpler, clearer, and (happily) faster.
 3788 
 3789 2004-03-30  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3790 
 3791 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TEBC): reverting to the previous method for
 3792 	async tests in TEBC, as the new method turned out to be too costly.
 3793 	Async tests now run every 64 instructions.
 3794 
 3795 2004-03-30  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3796 
 3797 	* generic/tclCompile.c:	    New instruction code INST_START_CMD that
 3798 	* generic/tclCompile.h:	    allows checking the bytecode's validity
 3799 	* generic/tclExecute.c:	    [Bug 729692] and the interp's readyness
 3800 	* tests/interp.test (18.9): [Bug 495830] before running the command.
 3801 	* tests/proc.test (7.1):    It also changes the mechanics of the async
 3802 	* tests/rename.test (6.1):  tests in TEBC, doing it now at command
 3803 	start instead of every 16 instructions.
 3804 
 3805 2004-03-30  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3806 
 3807 	* generic/tclFileName.c:  Fix to Windows glob where the pattern is a
 3808 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c:	  volume relative path or a network share [Bug
 3809 	* tests/fileName.test:	  898238]. On windows 'glob' will now return
 3810 	* tests/fileSystem.test:  the results of 'glob /foo/bar' and 'glob
 3811 	\\foo\\bar' as 'C:/foo/bar', i.e. a correct absolute path (rather than
 3812 	a volume relative path).
 3813 
 3814 	Note that the test suite does not test commands like
 3815 	'glob //Machine/Shared/*' (on a network share).
 3816 
 3817 2004-03-30  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 3818 
 3819 	* generic/tclPathObj.c:	  Fix to filename bugs recently
 3820 	* tests/fileName.test:	  introduced [Bug 918320].
 3821 
 3822 2004-03-29  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3823 
 3824 	* generic/tclMain.c (Tcl_Main, StdinProc):	Append newline only
 3825 	* tests/basic.test (basic-46.1):		to incomplete scripts
 3826 	as part of multi-line script construction. Do not add an extra
 3827 	trailing newline to the complete script. [Bug 833150]
 3828 
 3829 2004-03-28  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3830 
 3831 	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript): corrected possible segfault
 3832 	when a compilation returns TCL_OUTLINE_COMPILE after having grown the
 3833 	compile environment [Bug 925121].
 3834 
 3835 2004-03-27  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 3836 
 3837 	* doc/array.n: added documentation for trace-realted behaviour of
 3838 	'array get' [Bug 449893]
 3839 
 3840 2004-03-26  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 3841 
 3842 	* README:		Bumped version number to 8.5a2 to distinguish
 3843 	* tools/tcl.wse.in:	HEAD of CVS development from the recent 8.5a1
 3844 	* unix/configure.in:	release.

 3853 
 3854 	* generic/tclPathObj.c:	  Fix to Windows-only volume relative path
 3855 	* tests/fileSystem.test:  normalization. [Bug 923568]. Also fixed
 3856 	another volume relative bug found while testing.
 3857 
 3858 2004-03-24  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3859 
 3860 	* generic/tclNamesp.c (NsEnsembleImplementationCmd): Fix messed up
 3861 	handling of strncmp result which just happened to work in some libc
 3862 	implementations. [Bug 922752]
 3863 
 3864 2004-03-23  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 3865 
 3866 	* doc/StringObj.3: Inverted the sense of the documentation of how the
 3867 	bytes parameter is documented to match behaviour. [Bug 921464]

 3884 
 3885 2004-03-18  Reinhard Max  <max@suse.de>
 3886 
 3887 	* generic/tclIntDecls.h: Removed TclpTime_t. It wasn't really needed,
 3888 	* generic/tclInt.h:	 but caused warnings related to

 4044 2004-03-17  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4045 
 4046 	* doc/lsearch.n: Improved examples on the advanced capabilities of
 4047 	lsearch (with the right options, set element removal can be done)
 4048 	following discussion on tkchat.
 4049 
 4050 2004-03-16  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4051 
 4052 	* doc/catch.n:	Compiled [catch] no longer fails to catch syntax
 4053 	errors. Removed the claims in the documentation that it does.
 4054 	* doc/return.n:	Updated example to use [dict merge].
 4055 
 4056 2004-03-16  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 4057 
 4058 	* unix/configure, unix/tcl.m4: add -Wno-strict-aliasing for GCC to
 4059 	suppress useless type puning warnings.
 4060 
 4061 2004-03-16  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4062 
 4063 	* doc/file.n: *roff formatting fix. [Bug 917171]
 4064 
 4065 2004-03-15  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4066 
 4067 	* win/tclWinNotify.c: Fixed a mistake where the return value of
 4068 	MsgWaitForMultipleObjectsEx for "a message is in the queue" wasn't
 4069 	accurate. I removed the check on the case result==(WAIT_OBJECT_0 + 1)
 4070 	This was having the error of falling into GetMessage and waiting there
 4071 	by accident, which wasn't alertable through Tcl_AlertNotifier. I'll do
 4072 	some more study on this and try to find-out why.
 4073 
 4074 2004-03-12  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4075 
 4076 	IMPLEMENTATION OF TIP#163
 4077 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (DictMergeCmd):	This is based on work by Joe
 4078 	* tests/dict.test (dict-20.*):		English in Tcl [FRQ 745851]
 4079 	* doc/dict.n:				but not exactly.
 4080 
 4081 2004-03-10  Kevin B. Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
 4082 
 4083 	* generic/tclGetDate.y (TclGetDate): Fix so that [clock scan
 4084 	<timeOfDay> -gmt true] uses the GMT base date instead of the local
 4085 	one. [Bug 913513]
 4086 	* tests/clock.test: Added test cases for wrong ISO8601 week number
 4087 	[Bug 500285] and wrong GMT base date [Bug 913513]. Several tests still
 4088 	fail on Windows, and these are actual faults in [clock scan]. Fix is
 4089 	still pending.
 4090 	* generic/tclDate.c: Regenerated.
 4091 
 4092 2004-03-08  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4093 
 4094 	* generic/tclFileName.c:  Fix to 'glob -path' near the root
 4095 	* tests/fileName.test:	  of the filesystem. [Bug 910525]
 4096 
 4097 2004-03-08  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4098 
 4099 	* generic/tclParse.c (TclParseInit):	Modified TclParseInit so
 4100 	* generic/tclTest.c ([testexprparser]): that Tcl_Parse initialization
 4101 	conforms to documented promised about what fields will not be
 4102 	modified by what Tcl_Parse* routines. [Bug 910595]
 4103 
 4104 2004-03-05  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 4105 
 4106 	* win/configure: Regen.
 4107 	* win/configure.in: Check for define of MWMO_ALERTABLE in winuser.h.
 4108 	* win/tclWinPort.h: If MWMO_ALERTABLE is not defined in winuser.h then
 4109 	define it. This is needed for Mingw.
 4110 
 4111 2004-03-05  Kevin B. Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
 4112 
 4113 	* generic/tclTest.c: Modified TesteventObjCmd to use a
 4114 	Tcl_QueuePosition in place of an 'int' for the enumerated queue
 4115 	position, to avoid a compiler warning on SGI. [Bug 771960]
 4116 
 4117 2004-03-05  Kevin B. Kenny <kennykb@acm.org>
 4118 
 4119 	* tests/registry.test: Applied fix from [Patch 910174] to make the test
 4120 	for an English-language system include any country code, rather than
 4121 	just English-United States.1252. Thanks to Pat Thoyts for the changes.
 4122 
 4123 2004-03-04  Pat Thoyts	<patthoyts@users.sourceforge.net>
 4124 
 4125 	* tests/registry.test: Applied fixed from [Bug 766159] to skip two
 4126 	tests on Win98 that depend on a Unicode registry (NT specific).
 4127 
 4128 2004-03-04  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4129 
 4130 	* generic/tclInt.h (TclParseInit):	Factored the common code
 4131 	* generic/tclParse.c (TclParseInit):	for initializing a Tcl_Parse
 4132 	* generic/tclParseExpr.c:		struct into one routine.
 4133 
 4134 2004-03-04  Pat Thoyts	<patthoyts@users.sourceforge.net>
 4135 
 4136 	* library/reg/pkgIndex.tcl:  Added TIP #100 support to the
 4137 	* win/tclWinReg.c:	     registry package [patch 903831]
 4138 	This provides a Windows test of the TIP #100 mechanism and a sample to
 4139 	show how unloading an extension can be done.
 4140 
 4141 2004-03-04  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4142 
 4143 	* unix/dltest/pkgua.c: Fix minor syntax problems. [Bug 909288]
 4144 
 4145 2004-03-03  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 4146 
 4147 	*** 8.5a1 TAGGED FOR RELEASE ***
 4148 
 4149 	* changes: updated for 8.5a1
 4150 
 4151 2004-03-03  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4152 
 4153 	* win/makefile.vc: default environment variable for VC++ is %MSDevDir%
 4154 	not %MSVCDir%, although vcvars32.bat sets both.
 4155 
 4156 	* win/tclWinNotify.c (Tcl_WaitForEvent) : Allows an idling notifier to
 4157 	service "Asynchronous Procedure Calls" from its wait state. Only
 4158 	useful for extension authors who decide they might want to try
 4159 	"completion routines" with WriteFileEx(), as an example. From
 4160 	experience, I recommend that "completion ports" should be used instead
 4161 	as the execution of the callbacks are more managable.
 4162 
 4163 2004-03-01  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 4164 
 4165 	* README:	    update patchlevel to 8.5a1

 4174 
 4175 	* unix/tcl.m4 (SC_CONFIG_CFLAGS):	Allow 64-bit enabling on
 4176 	IRIX64-6.5* systems. [Bug 218561]
 4177 	* unix/configure:	autoconf-2.57
 4178 
 4179 	* generic/tclTrace.c (TclCheckInterpTraces):	The TIP 62
 4180 	* generic/tclTest.c (TestcmdtraceCmd):	implementation introduced a
 4181 	* tests/trace.test (trace-29.10):	bug by testing the CallFrame
 4182 	level instead of the iPtr->numLevels level when deciding what traces
 4183 	created by Tcl_Create(Obj)Trace to call. Added test to expose the
 4184 	error, and made fix. [FRQ 462580]
 4185 
 4186 2004-02-28  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4187 
 4188 	* tests/fileSystem.test: fix to Tcl Bug 905163.
 4189 	* tests/fileName.test: fix to Tcl Bug 904705.
 4190

 4198 
 4199 	* tests/basic.test:	Made several tests more robust to the
 4200 	* tests/cmdMZ.test:	list-quoting of path names that might contain
 4201 	* tests/exec.test:	Tcl-special chars like { or [. Should help us
 4202 	* tests/io.test:	sort out [Bug 554068]
 4203 	* tests/pid.test:
 4204 	* tests/socket.test:
 4205 	* tests/source.test:
 4206 	* tests/unixInit.test:
 4207 
 4208 2004-02-25  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4209 
 4210 	* generic/tclLoad.c (Tcl_LoadObjCmd): Missing dereference caused
 4211 	segfault with non-loadable extension. [Bug 904307]
 4212 
 4213 	* unix/tclUnixChan.c (TcpGetOptionProc): Stop memory leak with very
 4214 	long hostnames. [Bug 888777]
 4215 
 4216 2004-02-25  Pat Thoyts	<patthoyts@users.sourceforge.net>
 4217 
 4218 	* win/tclWinDde.c: Removed some gcc warnings - except for the
 4219 	-Wconversion warning for GetGlobalAtomName. gcc is just wrong about
 4220 	this.
 4221 
 4222 2004-02-24  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4223 
 4224 	IMPLEMENTATION OF TIP#100 FROM GEORGIOS PETASIS
 4225 	* generic/tclLoad.c (Tcl_UnloadObjCmd): Implementation.
 4226 	* tests/unload.test:			Test suite.
 4227 	* unix/dltest/pkgua.c:			Helper for test suite.
 4228 	* doc/unload.n:				Documentation.
 4229 	Also assorted changes (mostly small) to several other files.
 4230 
 4231 2004-02-23  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4232 
 4233 	* generic/regc_locale.c (cclass): Buffer was having its size reset
 4234 	instead of being released => memleak. [Bug 902562]
 4235 
 4236 2004-02-21  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4237 
 4238 	* generic/tclLoad.c (Tcl_LoadObjCmd): Fixed memory leak due to an
 4239 	improper error exit route.
 4240 
 4241 2004-02-20  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4242 
 4243 	* win/tclWinSock.c (SocketThreadExitHandler): Don't call
 4244 	TerminateThread when WaitForSingleObject returns a timeout.
 4245 	Tcl_Finalize called from DllMain will pause all threads. Trust that
 4246 	the thread will get the close notice at a later time if it does ever
 4247 	wake up before being cleaned up by the system anyway.
 4248 
 4249 2004-02-17  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4250 
 4251 	* doc/tcltest.n:
 4252 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Changed -verbose default value to
 4253 	{body error} so that detailed information on unexpected errors in
 4254 	tests is provided by default, even after the fix for [Bug 725253]
 4255 
 4256 2004-02-17  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 4257 
 4258 	* tests/unixInit.test (unixInit-7.1):
 4259 	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpInitPlatform): ensure the std fds exist to
 4260 	prevent crash condition [Bug 772288]
 4261 
 4262 2004-02-17  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4263 
 4264 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileSwitchCmd): Bozo mistake in memory
 4265 	releasing order when in an error case. [Bug 898910]
 4266 
 4267 2004-02-16  Jeff Hobbs	<jeffh@ActiveState.com>
 4268 
 4269 	* generic/tclTrace.c (TclTraceExecutionObjCmd)

 4271 
 4272 2004-02-12  Mo DeJong  <mdejong@users.sourceforge.net>
 4273 
 4274 	* win/tclWinInit.c (AppendEnvironment): Use the tail component of the
 4275 	passed in lib path instead of just blindly using lib+4. That worked
 4276 	when lib was "lib/..." but fails for other values. Thanks go to
 4277 	Patrick Samson for pointing this out.
 4278 
 4279 2004-02-10  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4280 
 4281 	* win/nmakehlp.c: better macro grepping logic.

 4284 
 4285 	* win/makefile.vc:
 4286 	* win/rules.vc:
 4287 	* win/tcl.rc:
 4288 	* win/tclsh.rc: Added an 'unchecked' option to the OPTS macro so a
 4289 	core built with symbols can be linked to the non-debug enabled C
 4290 	run-time. As per discussion with Kevin Kenny. Called like this:
 4291 
 4292 		nmake -af makefile.vc OPTS=unchecked,symbols
 4293 
 4294 	This clarifies the meaning of the 'g' naming suffix to mean only that
 4295 	the binary requires the debug enabled C run-time. Whether the binary
 4296 	contains symbols or not is a different condition.
 4297 
 4298 2004-02-06  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4299 
 4300 	* doc/clock.n:	Removed reference to non-existent [file ctime].
 4301 
 4302 2004-02-05  David Gravereaux  <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4303 
 4304 	* docs/tclvars.n: Added clarification of the tcl_platform(debug) var
 4305 	that it only refers to the flavor of the C run-time, and not whether
 4306 	the core contains symbols.
 4307 
 4308 2004-02-05  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4309 
 4310 	* generic/tclFileName.c (SkipToChar): Corrected CONST and type-casting
 4311 	issues that caused compiler warnings.
 4312 
 4313 2004-02-04  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4314 
 4315 	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (StoreStatData): Removed improper refcount
 4316 	decrement of the varName parameter. This error was causing segfaults
 4317 	following test cmdAH-28.7.
 4318 
 4319 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl: Corrected references to non-existent
 4320 	$name variable in [cleanupTests]. [Bug 833637]
 4321 
 4322 2004-02-03  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4323 
 4324 	* library/tcltest/tcltest.tcl:	Corrected parsing of single command
 4325 	line argument (option with missing value) [Bug 833910]
 4326 	* library/tcltest/pkgIndex.tcl:	Bump to version 2.2.5.
 4327 
 4328 2004-02-02  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4329 
 4330 	* generic/tclIO.c (Tcl_Ungets): Fixes improper filling of the channel
 4331 	buffer. This is the buffer before the splice. [Bug 405995]
 4332 
 4333 2004-02-01  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4334 
 4335 	* tests/winPipe.test: more pass-thru commandline verifications.
 4336 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (BuildCommandLine): Special case quoting for '{'
 4337 	not required by the c-runtimes's parse_cmdline().
 4338 	* win/tclAppInit.c: Removed our custom setargv() in favor of the work
 4339 	provided by the c-runtime. [Bug 672938]
 4340 
 4341 	* win/nmakehlp.c: defensive techniques to avoid static buffer
 4342 	overflows and a couple envars upsetting invokations of cl.exe and
 4343 	link.exe. [Bug 885537]
 4344 
 4345 	* tests/winPipe.test: Added proof that BuildCommandLine() is not doing
 4346 	the "N backslashes followed a quote -> insert N * 2 + 1 backslashes
 4347 	then a quote" rule needed for the crt's parse_cmdline().
 4348 	* win/tclWinPipe.c: Fixed BuildCommandLine() to pass the new cases.
 4349 
 4350 2004-01-30  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4351 
 4352 	* win/makefile.vc: Use the -GZ compiler switch when building for
 4353 	symbols. This is supposed to emulate the release build better to avoid
 4354 	hiding problems that only show themselves in a release build.
 4355 
 4356 2004-01-29  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4357 
 4358 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: fix to [Bug 883143] in file normalization
 4359 
 4360 2004-01-29  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4361 
 4362 	* doc/file.n:
 4363 	* generic/tclFCmd.c
 4364 	* generic/tclTest.c
 4365 	* library/init.tcl
 4366 	* mac/tclMacFile.c
 4367 	* tests/fileSystem.test: fix to [Bug 886352] where 'file copy -force'
 4368 	had inconsistent behaviour wrt target files with insufficient
 4369 	permissions, particular from vfs->native fs. Behaviour of '-force' is
 4370 	now always consistent (and now consistent with behaviour of 'file
 4371 	delete -force'). Added new tests and documentation and cleaned up the
 4372 	'simplefs' test filesystem.
 4373 
 4374 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c
 4375 	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c
 4376 	* unix/tclUnixFile.c
 4377 	* win/tclWinFile.c: made native filesystems more robust to C code
 4378 	which asks for mount lists.
 4379 
 4380 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: fix to [Bug 886607] removing warning/error
 4381 	with some compilers.
 4382 
 4383 2004-01-28  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4384 
 4385 	* generic/tclObj.c (SetBooleanFromAny): Rewrite to do more efficient
 4386 	string->bool conversion.
 4387 	Many other minor whitespace/style fixes to this file too.
 4388 
 4389 2004-01-27  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4390 
 4391 	* win/nmakehlp.c: Use '.\nul' as the sourcefile name instead of 'nul'
 4392 	so VC 5.2 doesn't try searching the path for it and failing with a
 4393 	possible dialogbox popping up about having to add a CD to an empty
 4394 	drive. Also added a SetErrorMode() call to disable any dialogs that
 4395 	cl.exe or link.exe might create. [Bug 885537]
 4396 
 4397 2004-01-22  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4398 
 4399 	* doc/file.n: clarified documentation of 'file system' [Bug 883825]
 4400 	* tests/fCmd.test: improved test result in failure case.
 4401 
 4402 2004-01-22  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4403 
 4404 	* tests/fileSystem.test: 3 new tests
 4405 	* generic/tclPathObj.c: fix to [Bug 879555] in file normalization.
 4406 	* doc/filename.n: small clarification to Windows behaviour with
 4407 	filenames like '.....', 'a.....', '.....a'.
 4408 
 4409 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: slight improvement to native cwd caching on
 4410 	Windows.
 4411 
 4412 2004-01-21  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4413 
 4414 	* doc/Panic.3:	Mentions of 'panic' and 'panicVA' removed from the
 4415 	documentation.
 4416 
 4417 2004-01-21  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4418 
 4419 	* doc/FileSystem.3:

 4440 	* win/tclWinFile.c
 4441 	* win/tclWinInt.h
 4442 
 4443 	Three main issues accomplished: (1) cleaned up variable names in the
 4444 	filesystem code so that 'pathPtr' is used throughout. (2) applied a
 4445 	round of filesystem optimisation with better handling and caching of
 4446 	relative and absolute paths, requiring fewer conversions. (3)
 4447 	clarifications to the documentation, particularly regarding the
 4448 	acceptable refCounts of objects. Some new tests added. Tcl benchmarks
 4449 	show a significant improvement over 8.4.5, and on Windows typically a
 4450 	small improvement over 8.3.5 (Unix still appears to require
 4451 	optimisation). TCL_FILESYSTEM_VERSION_2 introduced, but for internal
 4452 	use only. There should be no public incompatibilities from these
 4453 	changes. Thanks to dgp for extensive testing.
 4454 
 4455 2004-01-19  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4456 
 4457 	* win/tclWinPipe.c (Tcl_WaitPid): Fixed a thread-safety problem with
 4458 	the process list. The delayed cut operation after the wait was going
 4459 	stale by being outside the list lock. It now cuts within the lock and
 4460 	does a locked splice for when it needs to instead. [Bug 859820]
 4461 
 4462 2004-01-18  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4463 
 4464 	* generic/tclCompile.c, generic/tclCompile.h: Two new opcodes,
 4465 	INST_LIST_INDEX_IMM and INST_LIST_RANGE_IMM, that have operand(s) of
 4466 	new type OPERAND_IDX4 which represents indexes into things like lists
 4467 	(and perhaps other things eventually.)
 4468 	* generic/tclExecute.c (TclExecuteByteCode): Implementation of the new
 4469 	opcodes. INST_LIST_INDEX_IMM does a simple [lindex] with either front-
 4470 	or end-based simple indexing. INST_LIST_RANGE_IMM does an [lrange]
 4471 	with front- or end-based simple indexing for both the reference to the
 4472 	first and last items in the range.
 4473 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c (TclCompileLassignCmd): Generate bytecode for
 4474 	the [lassign] command.
 4475 
 4476 2004-01-17  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4477 
 4478 	* win/tclWinInit.c: added #pragma comment(lib, "advapi32.lib") when
 4479 	compiling under VC++ so we don't need to specify it when linking.
 4480 
 4481 2004-01-17  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4482 
 4483 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LassignObjCmd): Add more shimmering
 4484 	protection for when the list is also one of the variables.
 4485 
 4486 	BASIC IMPLEMENTATION OF TIP#57
 4487 	* generic/tclCmdIL.c (Tcl_LassignObjCmd): Implementation of the
 4488 	[lassign] command that takes full advantage of Tcl's object API.
 4489 	* doc/lassign.n: New file documenting the command.
 4490 	* tests/cmdIL.test (cmdIL-6.*): Test suite for the command.
 4491 
 4492 2004-01-15  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4493 
 4494 	* win/tclWinReg.c: Placed the requirement for advapi.lib into the
 4495 	object file itself with #pragma comment (lib, ...) when built with
 4496 	VC++. This will simplify linking for users of the static library.
 4497 
 4498 	* win/rules.vc: Added new 'fullwarn' to the CHECKS commandline macro;
 4499 	sets $(FULLWARNINGS).
 4500 
 4501 	* win/makefile.vc: Removed 'advapi.lib' from $(baselibs). Added new
 4502 	logic to crank-up the warning levels for both compile and link when
 4503 	$(FULLWARNINGS) is set. Some clean-up with how the resource files are
 4504 	built and how -DTCL_USE_STATIC_PACKAGES is sent when compiling the
 4505 	shells.
 4506 
 4507 	* win/tclAppInit.c: Small change in how TCL_USE_STATIC_PACKAGES is
 4508 	used.
 4509 
 4510 	* win/tcl.rc:
 4511 	* win/tclsh.rc: Some clean-up with how the resource files are built.
 4512 	Fixed 'OriginalFilename' problem that still thought a debug suffix was
 4513 	still 'd', now is 'g'.
 4514 
 4515 2004-01-14  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4516 
 4517 	* generic/tclDictObj.c (TraceDictPath, DictExistsCmd): Adjusted
 4518 	behaviour of [dict exists] so a failure to look up a dictionary along
 4519 	the path of dicts doesn't trigger an error. This is how it was
 4520 	documented to behave previously... [Bug 871387]
 4521 
 4522 	* generic/tclDictObj.c: Assorted dict fixes from Peter Spjuth relating
 4523 	to [Bug 876170].
 4524 	(SetDictFromAny): Make sure that lists retain their ordering even when
 4525 	converted to dictionaries and back.
 4526 	(TraceDictPath): Correct object reference count handling!
 4527 	(DictReplaceCmd, DictRemoveCmd): Stop object leak.
 4528 	(DictIncrCmd,DictLappendCmd,DictAppendCmd,DictSetCmd,DictUnsetCmd):
 4529 	Simpler handling of reference counts when assigning to variables.
 4530 	* tests/dict.test (dict-19.2): Memory leak stress test
 4531 
 4532 2004-01-13  Don Porter	<dgp@users.sourceforge.net>
 4533 
 4534 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_SwitchObjCmd):  Silence compiler warnings.
 4535 
 4536 	Patch 876451: restores performance of [return]. Also allows forms such
 4537 	as [return -code error $msg] to be bytecompiled.
 4538 
 4539 	* generic/tclInt.h:	Factored Tcl_ReturnObjCmd() into two pieces:
 4540 	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:	TclMergeReturnOptions(), which can parse the
 4541 	options to [return], check their validity, and create the
 4542 	corresponding return options dictionary, and TclProcessReturn(), which
 4543 	takes that return options dictionary and performs the [return]
 4544 	operation.
 4545 
 4546 	* generic/tclCompCmds.c: Rewrote TclCompileReturnCmd() to call
 4547 	TclMergeReturnOptions() at compile time so the return options
 4548 	dictionary is computed at compile time (when it is fully known). The
 4549 	dictionary is pushed on the stack along with the result, and the code
 4550 	and level values are included in the bytecode as operands. Also
 4551 	supports optimized compilation of un-[catch]ed [return]s from procs
 4552 	with default options into the INST_DONE instruction.
 4553 
 4554 	* generic/tclExecute.c: Rewrote INST_RETURN instruction to retrieve
 4555 	the code and level operands, pop the return options from the stack,
 4556 	and call TclProcessReturn() to perform the [return] operation.
 4557 
 4558 	* generic/tclCompile.h:	New utilities include TclEmitInt4 macro
 4559 	* generic/tclCompile.c:	and TclWordKnownAtCompileTime().
 4560 
 4561 	End Patch 876451.
 4562 
 4563 	* generic/tclFileName.c (Tcl_GlobObjCmd): Latest changes to management
 4564 	of the interp result by Tcl_GetIndexFromObj() exposed improper interp
 4565 	result management in the [glob] command procedure. Corrected by
 4566 	adopting the Tcl_SetObjResult(Tcl_NewStringObj) pattern. This stopped
 4567 	a segfault in test filename-11.36. [Bug 877677]
 4568 
 4569 2004-01-13  Donal K. Fellows  <donal.k.fellows@man.ac.uk>
 4570 
 4571 	* generic/tclIndexObj.c (Tcl_GetIndexFromObjStruct, Tcl_WrongNumArgs):
 4572 	Create fresh objects instead of using the one currently in the
 4573 	interpreter, which isn't guaranteed to be fresh and unshared. The cost
 4574 	for the core will be minimal because of the object cache, and this
 4575 	fixes [Bug 875395].
 4576 
 4577 2004-01-12  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 4578 
 4579 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c (CompileLandOrLorExpr): cosmetic changes.
 4580 
 4581 2004-01-12  Miguel Sofer <msofer@users.sf.net>
 4582 
 4583 	* generic/tclCompExpr.c (CompileLandOrLorExpr): new logic, fewer
 4584 	instructions. As a side effect, the instructions INST_LOR and
 4585 	INST_LAND are now never used.
 4586 	* generic/tclExecute.c (INST_JUMP*): small optimisation; fix a bug in
 4587 	debug code.
 4588 
 4589 2004-01-11  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4590 
 4591 	* win/tclWinThrd.c (Tcl_ConditionNotify): condPtr must be dereferenced
 4592 	to see if there are waiters else uninitialized datum is manipulated.
 4593 	[Bug 849007 789338 745068]
 4594 
 4595 2004-01-09  David Gravereaux <davygrvy@pobox.com>
 4596 
 4597 	* generic/tcl.h: Renamed and deprecated #defines moved to within the
 4598 	#ifndef TCL_NO_DEPRECATED block. This allows us to build Tcl to check
 4599 	for deprecated functions in use, such as panic() and Tcl_Ckalloc(). By
 4600 	request from DKF. Extensions that build with -DTCL_NO_DEPRECATED now
 4601 	have these macros as restricted.
 4602 	***POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY***
 4603 
 4604 	* win/makefile.vc:
 4605 	* win/rules.vc:	 Added -DTCL_NO_DEPRECATED usage to makefile.vc.
 4606 	Called like this:   nmake -af makefile.vc CHECKS=nodep
 4607 
 4608 2004-01-09  Vince Darley  <vincentdarley@users.sourceforge.net>
 4609 
 4610 	* generic/tclIOUtil.c: fix to infinite loop in TclFinalizeFilesystem
