70.10 2005-09-09
8 - Added GetFileAttributes() function and corresponding constants.
9 (Patches from Kenneth Olwing from 2004-11-12).
10 - cygwin patches from Rafael Kitover and Reini Urban.
11 This includes the addition of the GetFileSize(), getFileSize()
12 setFilePointer() and GetOverlappedResult() methods and the
13 experimental new object oriented interface. All file position
14 operations use either Math::BigInt objects or 8 byte integers
15 (cygwin) for file offsets.
16
170.0901 2005-08-30
18 - increased version number to show difference to standalone
19 CPAN release of Win32API-File-0.09.zip
20
210.09 2005-02-18
22 - Support 5.007+
23
240.09 [libwin32 version only]
25 - Add AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM to Makefile.PL.
26 - Trivial speed improvements.
27 - Fixed F<test.pl> if Z: is a valid drive letter.
28
290.08 2000-04-07
30 - C<GetOsFHandle> now returns false for failure.
31 - New F<buffers.h> supports C++ compilers.
32 - Read-only output-only parameters now generate an error.
33 - Added fileLastError() since C<$^E> is often quickly overwritten.
34 - Complete rewrite of how C constants are made available in Perl.
35 - Added fileConstant(), a nice way to look-up constants at run time.
36 - Added Get/SetHandleInformation and HANDLE_FLAG_* constants.
37 - Added IOCTL_DISK_GET_MEDIA_TYPES since *_STORAGE_* fails for floppy.
38 - Added several example scripts.
39
400.07 1999-08-17
41 - Added DeleteFile().
42 - Removed prototypes from OsFHandleOpen() and GetOsFHandle() since
43 the C<*> doesn't prevent warnings about bareword file handles and
44 prevents the useful usage message if no arguments given.
45 - Fixed bug due to failed C<(/k/i,/t/i)> in list context returning
46 C<()> not C<(undef,undef)> in modern versions of Perl.
47 - Change order of C<#include>s so can build with Perl5.005 and later.
48 - Fixed C<test.pl> to ignore Perl bug where C<$^E> is truncated.
49 - Turned on C<CAPI> in C<Makefile.PL> for certain versions of Perl.
50 - Updated C<README>.
51
520.06 1999-08-10
53 - Switch to new buffers.h and "Hungarian" notation!
54 - Added full documentation!
55 - ReadFile() no longer tries to read more bytes than asked for
56 just because the scalar buffer can hold more bytes!
57 - createFile() does better DWIM for share mode.
58 - Return SV_NO rather than C<0> for Boolean false.
59 - For boolean args, non-empty strings are C<1>, don't convert to int.
60 - Added ":MEDIA_TYPE" export class.
61 - Added C<GENERIC_ALL> and C<GENERIC_EXECUTE> to ":GENERIC_" exports.
62 - Added C<FdGetOsFHandle()> and C<GetOsFHandle()>!
63 - Added C<OsFHandleOpenFd()> and C<OsFHandleOpen()>!
64 - Support calling C<constant()> without the useless integer argument.
65 - Auto-load/export constants with C<()> prototype so can be in-lined.
66 - Added C<IsRecognizedPartition()> and C<IsContainerPartition()>.
67 - Added C<getLogicalDrives()>.
68 - Added ":FILE_" export class for specific types of access to files.
69 - Added C<SECURITY_SQOS_PRESENT> to ":SECURITY_" export class.
70 - Added ":PARTITION_" export class for partition types.
71 - Seriously bulked up the test suite.
72
730.05 1998-08-21
74 - "-w" no longer warns that a buffer size of "=99" "isn't numeric".
75 nor if pass undef var for buffer size or output-only parameter.
76 - Added SetErrorMode() and :SEM_.
77 - createFile() sharing now defaults to "rw" to match C RTL.
78 - createFile() was ignoring "r" and "w" in access masks.
79
800.04 1998-08-13
81 - Added GetLogicalDrives and GetLogicalDriveStrings.
82 - Added GetDriveType and GetVolumeInformation.
83 - Added DRIVE_* for GetDriveType().
84 - Added FS_* for GetVolumeInformation().
85 - Added createFile(), getLogicalDrives(), and attrLetsToBits() helpers.
86 - CreateFile() returns: INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE->false, 0->"0 but true".
87 - More standardized "Hungarian" notation and uses buffers.h.
88 - Large unsigned values no longer made negative.
89
900.03 1998-04-25
91 - Added DDD_* constants to File.pm and moved codes mistakenly
92 exported for :DDD_ to be exported for :Misc.
93 - Split large group of constants to increase efficiency.
94 - Minor cosmetic fixes.
95
960.02 1998-03-03
