20.1
3
4 First Release.
5
60.2
7
8 When DB_File is opening a database file it no longer terminates the
9 process if dbopen returned an error. This allows file protection
10 errors to be caught at run time. Thanks to Judith Grass
11 <grass@cybercash.com> for spotting the bug.
12
130.3
14
15 Added prototype support for multiple btree compare callbacks.
16
171.0
18
19 DB_File has been in use for over a year. To reflect that, the
20 version number has been incremented to 1.0.
21
22 Added complete support for multiple concurrent callbacks.
23
24 Using the push method on an empty list didn't work properly. This
25 has been fixed.
26
271.01
28
29 Fixed a core dump problem with SunOS.
30
31 The return value from TIEHASH wasn't set to NULL when dbopen
32 returned an error.
33
341.02
35
36 Merged OS/2 specific code into DB_File.xs
37
38 Removed some redundant code in DB_File.xs.
39
40 Documentation update.
41
42 Allow negative subscripts with RECNO interface.
43
44 Changed the default flags from O_RDWR to O_CREAT|O_RDWR.
45
46 The example code which showed how to lock a database needed a call
47 to sync added. Without it the resultant database file was empty.
48
49 Added get_dup method.
50
511.03
52
53 Documentation update.
54
55 DB_File now imports the constants (O_RDWR, O_CREAT etc.) from Fcntl
56 automatically.
57
58 The standard hash function exists is now supported.
59
60 Modified the behavior of get_dup. When it returns an associative
61 array, the value is the count of the number of matching BTREE
62 values.
63
641.04
65
66 Minor documentation changes.
67
68 Fixed a bug in hash_cb. Patches supplied by Dave Hammen,
69 <hammen@gothamcity.jsc.nasa.govt>.
70
71 Fixed a bug with the constructors for DB_File::HASHINFO,
72 DB_File::BTREEINFO and DB_File::RECNOINFO. Also tidied up the
73 constructors to make them -w clean.
74
75 Reworked part of the test harness to be more locale friendly.
76
771.05
78
79 Made all scripts in the documentation strict and -w clean.
80
81 Added logic to DB_File.xs to allow the module to be built after
82 Perl is installed.
83
841.06
85
86 Minor namespace cleanup: Localized PrintBtree.
87
881.07
89
90 Fixed bug with RECNO, where bval wasn't defaulting to "\n".
91
921.08
93
94 Documented operation of bval.
95
961.09
97
98 Minor bug fix in DB_File::HASHINFO, DB_File::RECNOINFO and
99 DB_File::BTREEINFO.
100
101 Changed default mode to 0666.
102
1031.10
104
105 Fixed fd method so that it still returns -1 for in-memory files
106 when db 1.86 is used.
107
1081.11
109
110 Documented the untie gotcha.
111
1121.12
113
114 Documented the incompatibility with version 2 of Berkeley DB.
115
1161.13
117
118 Minor changes to DB_FIle.xs and DB_File.pm
119
1201.14
121
122 Made it illegal to tie an associative array to a RECNO database and
123 an ordinary array to a HASH or BTREE database.
124
1251.15
126
127 Patch from Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no> to suppress "use of undefined
128 value" warning with db_get and db_seq.
129
130 Patch from Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no> to make DB_File export only the
131 O_* constants from Fcntl.
132
133 Removed the DESTROY method from the DB_File::HASHINFO module.
134
135 Previously DB_File hard-wired the class name of any object that it
136 created to "DB_File". This makes sub-classing difficult. Now
137 DB_File creats objects in the namespace of the package it has been
138 inherited into.
139
140
1411.16
142
143 A harmless looking tab was causing Makefile.PL to fail on AIX 3.2.5
144
145 Small fix for the AIX strict C compiler XLC which doesn't like
146 __attribute__ being defined via proto.h and redefined via db.h. Fix
147 courtesy of Jarkko Hietaniemi.
148
1491.50
150
151 DB_File can now build with either DB 1.x or 2.x, but not both at
152 the same time.
153
1541.51
155
156 Fixed the test harness so that it doesn't expect DB_File to have
157 been installed by the main Perl build.
158
159
160 Fixed a bug in mapping 1.x O_RDONLY flag to 2.x DB_RDONLY equivalent
161
1621.52
163
164 Patch from Nick Ing-Simmons now allows DB_File to build on NT.
165 Merged 1.15 patch.
166
1671.53
168
169 Added DB_RENUMBER to flags for recno.
170
1711.54
172
173 Fixed a small bug in the test harness when run under win32
174 The emulation of fd when useing DB 2.x was busted.
175
1761.55
177 Merged 1.16 changes.
178
1791.56
180 Documented the Solaris 2.5 mutex bug
181
1821.57
183 If Perl has been compiled with Threads support,the symbol op will be
184 defined. This clashes with a field name in db.h, so it needs to be
185 #undef'ed before db.h is included.
186
1871.58
188 Tied Array support was enhanced in Perl 5.004_57. DB_File now
189 supports PUSH,POP,SHIFT,UNSHIFT & STORESIZE.
190
191 Fixed a problem with the use of sv_setpvn. When the size is
192 specified as 0, it does a strlen on the data. This was ok for DB
193 1.x, but isn't for DB 2.x.

1951.59
196 Updated the license section.
197
198 Berkeley DB 2.4.10 disallows zero length keys. Tests 32 & 42 in
199 db-btree.t and test 27 in db-hash.t failed because of this change.
200 Those tests have been zapped.
201
202 Added dbinfo to the distribution.
203
2041.60
205 Changed the test to check for full tied array support
