290.10 2005-09-09
30 - Added GetFileAttributes() function and corresponding constants.
31 (Patches from Kenneth Olwing from 2004-11-12).
32 - cygwin patches from Rafael Kitover and Reini Urban.
33 This includes the addition of the GetFileSize(), getFileSize()
34 setFilePointer() and GetOverlappedResult() methods and the
35 experimental new object oriented interface. All file position
36 operations use either Math::BigInt objects or 8 byte integers
37 (cygwin) for file offsets.
38
390.0901 2005-08-30
40 - increased version number to show difference to standalone
41 CPAN release of Win32API-File-0.09.zip
42
430.09 2005-02-18
44 - Support 5.007+
45
460.09 [libwin32 version only]
47 - Add AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM to Makefile.PL.
48 - Trivial speed improvements.
49 - Fixed F<test.pl> if Z: is a valid drive letter.
50
510.08 2000-04-07
52 - C<GetOsFHandle> now returns false for failure.
53 - New F<buffers.h> supports C++ compilers.
54 - Read-only output-only parameters now generate an error.
55 - Added fileLastError() since C<$^E> is often quickly overwritten.
56 - Complete rewrite of how C constants are made available in Perl.
57 - Added fileConstant(), a nice way to look-up constants at run time.
58 - Added Get/SetHandleInformation and HANDLE_FLAG_* constants.
59 - Added IOCTL_DISK_GET_MEDIA_TYPES since *_STORAGE_* fails for floppy.
60 - Added several example scripts.
61
620.07 1999-08-17
63 - Added DeleteFile().
64 - Removed prototypes from OsFHandleOpen() and GetOsFHandle() since
65 the C<*> doesn't prevent warnings about bareword file handles and
66 prevents the useful usage message if no arguments given.
67 - Fixed bug due to failed C<(/k/i,/t/i)> in list context returning
68 C<()> not C<(undef,undef)> in modern versions of Perl.
69 - Change order of C<#include>s so can build with Perl5.005 and later.
70 - Fixed C<test.pl> to ignore Perl bug where C<$^E> is truncated.
71 - Turned on C<CAPI> in C<Makefile.PL> for certain versions of Perl.
72 - Updated C<README>.
73
740.06 1999-08-10
75 - Switch to new buffers.h and "Hungarian" notation!
76 - Added full documentation!
77 - ReadFile() no longer tries to read more bytes than asked for
78 just because the scalar buffer can hold more bytes!
79 - createFile() does better DWIM for share mode.
80 - Return SV_NO rather than C<0> for Boolean false.
81 - For boolean args, non-empty strings are C<1>, don't convert to int.
82 - Added ":MEDIA_TYPE" export class.
83 - Added C<GENERIC_ALL> and C<GENERIC_EXECUTE> to ":GENERIC_" exports.
84 - Added C<FdGetOsFHandle()> and C<GetOsFHandle()>!
85 - Added C<OsFHandleOpenFd()> and C<OsFHandleOpen()>!
86 - Support calling C<constant()> without the useless integer argument.
87 - Auto-load/export constants with C<()> prototype so can be in-lined.
88 - Added C<IsRecognizedPartition()> and C<IsContainerPartition()>.
89 - Added C<getLogicalDrives()>.
90 - Added ":FILE_" export class for specific types of access to files.
91 - Added C<SECURITY_SQOS_PRESENT> to ":SECURITY_" export class.
92 - Added ":PARTITION_" export class for partition types.
93 - Seriously bulked up the test suite.
94
950.05 1998-08-21
96 - "-w" no longer warns that a buffer size of "=99" "isn't numeric".
97 nor if pass undef var for buffer size or output-only parameter.
98 - Added SetErrorMode() and :SEM_.
99 - createFile() sharing now defaults to "rw" to match C RTL.
100 - createFile() was ignoring "r" and "w" in access masks.
101
1020.04 1998-08-13
103 - Added GetLogicalDrives and GetLogicalDriveStrings.
104 - Added GetDriveType and GetVolumeInformation.
105 - Added DRIVE_* for GetDriveType().
106 - Added FS_* for GetVolumeInformation().
107 - Added createFile(), getLogicalDrives(), and attrLetsToBits() helpers.
108 - CreateFile() returns: INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE->false, 0->"0 but true".
109 - More standardized "Hungarian" notation and uses buffers.h.
110 - Large unsigned values no longer made negative.
111
1120.03 1998-04-25
113 - Added DDD_* constants to File.pm and moved codes mistakenly
114 exported for :DDD_ to be exported for :Misc.
115 - Split large group of constants to increase efficiency.
116 - Minor cosmetic fixes.
117
1180.02 1998-03-03
119 - Added DeviceIoControl().
120 - Added some IOCTL_STORAGE_* and IOCTL_DISK_* constants
121 - Taught test.pl to verify all exported functions and constants.
122
