18 years agoDocumentation patch: Tie::Hash, Tie::Scalar, Tie::SubstrHash
Randy J Ray [Tue, 6 Feb 1996 17:04:47 +0000]
Documentation patch: Tie::Hash, Tie::Scalar, Tie::SubstrHash

[This finishes a job started by Randy Ray with perl5.002b1f.]

This patch updates the files lib/TieHash.pm and lib/SubstrHash.pm. Those
two files are moved to a new directory called lib/Tie. A new tie-related
class for scalars, lib/Tie/Scalar.pm, is added. Each of these has pod
documentation that passes through pod2man without complaint. All package
names are updated to reflect this structure, and the "standard" sub-classes
for hashes and scalars are named Tie::StdHash and Tie::StdScalar, in
keeping with the group consensus.

With this, the documentation for Tie::Hash should be fine, Tie::Scalar
exists and is documented, and Tie::SubstrHash (formerly just SubstrHash)
is also documented, albeit weakly. I have no examples of usage to show, and
I suspect a possible bug or two, but without examples it's hard to say.

As it happens, this patch also impacts the DBM-style extensions, as they
(DB_File, NDBM_File, GBM_File, ODBM_File, SDBM_File) all inherited from
the old TieHash.pm as a base class.

18 years agoTMPFILE support
Ilya Zakharevich [Wed, 7 Feb 1996 17:16:06 +0000]
TMPFILE support

Currently on DOSISH machines a -e line with a syntax error results in
persisting pl234523 tmpfile. The patch below:

a) Cleans up the cleanup code;
b) Moves the TMPPATH specifics to header files.

I do not send patches for OS/2 files, since they are very much
reworked now, I only note that b) allows OS/2 startup to specify
TMPPATH to look to a $ENV{TMP} directory (instead of the current
directory, as it is now). Note that this allows now running -e perl
from read-only media.

Since there is no place now to have DOSISH _code_, as opposed to
_headers_, I leave the TMPPATH code on ./os2/os2.c, though it should
be common to DOS as well.

Enjoy,
Ilya

Remove d_vms and d_unlnkallvers constants.  These should be set
in vmsish.h (and optionally undef'd in unixish.h, dosish.h).

Send the &-d info to >&4 so you see it even with -s.

Update unixism comments.

Introduce new nm_so_opt variable that holds options that might be
required for use with nm on shared libraries but that are fatal
if used on archive libraries.

Move suid question closer to top.  This also shuffled a few other
units.

Start varargs testing script with $startsh.

Start O_NONBLOCK testing script with $startsh.

perl 5.002gamma: [patch introduction and re-organisations]

[ re-organisations:

# Give this module a sensible home.
mv pod/PerlDoc/Functions.pm lib/Pod/Functions.pm
rmdir pod/PerlDoc

# Tie:: finally has its own hierarchy
mkdir lib/Tie

rm -f os2/diff.init        # Obsolete.

]

This is patch.2gamma to perl5.002 beta3.
This takes you from 5.002beta3 to 5.002gamma.

To apply this patch, run the above commands, then
cd to your perl source directory and then type

        patch -p1 -N < patch.2gamma

The changes are described after each /^Index/ line below.  This is
designed so you can examine each change with a command such as

        csplit -k patch.2gamma '/^Index:/' '{99}'

(Of course since there are 116 items and most csplit's have an
arbitrary limit of 100 files, you'll probably have to manually split
this file first, but you get the idea.  (GNU csplit doesn't have this
limitation.  Nor does a perl solution, of course.))

Patch and enjoy,

perl5.002beta3

[editor's note: no patch file was found for this release, so no
fine-grained changes]

I can't find the password for our ftp server, so I had to drop it into
ftp://ftp.sems.com/pub/incoming/perl5.002b3.tar.gz, which is a drop
directory you can't ls.

The current plan is that Andy is gonna whack on this a little more, and
then release a gamma in a few days when he's happy with it.  So don't get
carried away.  This is now *late* beta.

In other words, have less than the appropriate amount of fun.  :-)
