101- No functional changes since the previous release.
102- Fixes POD links
103 (part of core change2a6dc37471bea77f0c24fd1fe90c598a270c9968,
104 Florian Ragwitz)
105
1063.32 - Sun Sep 19 18:00:00 2010
107
108- Promote to stable release.
109
1103.31_03 - Fri Sep 17 20:00:00 2010
111
112- Colon delimiter and escaped delimiters for File::Spec::VMS
113 This is core change 61196b433b2b (Craig A. Berry)
114
1153.31_02 - Fri Jul 23 20:00:00 2010
116
117- Add TODO test for File::Spec->rel2abs() when under a symlink.
118- Make catpath return an empty directory rather than the current
119 directory if the directory name is empty. This allows catpath
120 to play nice with non-rooted logical names, as in
121 catpath('sys$login:', '', 'login.com');
122 (Craig A. Berry)
123- Fix abs2rel bug in handling a Unix-style input.
124 (Craig A. Berry)
125- Assorted clarification and simplification of the documentation.
126 (Craig A. Berry)
127
1283.31 - Sun Nov 1 15:15:00 2009
129
130- Do not pack a Build.PL to avoid a circular dependency involving
131 ExtUtils::CBuilder (PathTools RT #50749)
132

134
135- Remove more special logic required for core perl.
136
1373.30_01 - Mon Sep 21 14:39:00 2009
138
139- Merge changes from core perl.
140 (Mostly changes regarding the lib->ext migration)
141
1423.30 - Sun May 10 10:55:00 2009
143
144- Promote to stable release.
145
1463.29_01 - Thu May 7 20:22:00 2009
147
148- Minor fixes for QNX6. [Sean Boudreau]
149
150- Update to support VMS in Unix compatible mode and/or file names using
151 extended character sets. (RT #42154) [John Malmberg]
152
153- VMS support for Unix and extended file specifications in File::Spec
154 (RT #42153) [John Malmberg]
155
1563.29 - Wed Oct 29 20:48:11 2008
157
158- Promote to stable release.
159
1603.28_03 - Mon Oct 27 22:12:11 2008
161
162- In Cwd.pm, pass the un-munged $VERSION to XSLoader/DynaLoader,
163 otherwise development releases fail tests on Win32.
164
1653.28_02 - Mon Oct 27 20:13:11 2008
166
167 - Fixed some issues on QNX/NTO related to paths with double
168 slashes. [Matt Kraai & Nicholas Clark]
169
1703.28_01 - Fri Jul 25 21:18:11 2008
171
172 - Fixed and clarified the behavior of splitpath() with a $no_file
173 argument on VMS. [Craig A. Berry, Peter Edwards]
174
175 - Removed some function prototypes and other Perl::Critic violations.
176
177 - canonpath() and catdir() and catfile() on Win32 now make an
178 explicit (and unnecessary) copy of their arguments right away,
179 because apparently if we don't, we sabotage all of Win32dom. [RT
180 #33675]
181
182 - The Makefile.PL now has 'use 5.005;' to explicitly show what
183 minimum version of perl we support. [Spotted by Alexandr Ciornii]
184
1853.2701 - Mon Feb 11 21:43:51 2008
186
187 - Fixed an edge case for Win32 catdir('C:', 'foo') and catfile('C:',
188 'foo.txt') (which the caller's not really supposed to do, that's
189 what catpath() is for) that changed between versions. Now we're
190 back to the old behavior, which was to return C:\foo and C:\foo.txt .
191 [Audrey Tang]
192
1933.27 - Wed Jan 16 20:20:49 2008
194
195 - If strlcpy() and strlcat() aren't available on the user's system,
196 we now use ppport.h to provide them, so our C code works. [Steve
197 Peters]
198
199 - Upgraded to a newer version of ppport.h [Steve Peters]
200
2013.26 - Sun Jan 13 21:59:20 2008
202
203 - case_tolerant() on Cygwin will now avoid a painful death when
204 Cygwin::mount_flags() isn't defined, as is the case for perl <
205 5.10. It will now just return 1, which is what it always did
206 before it got so smart. [Spotted by Emanuele Zeppieri]
207
208 - abs_path() on Unix(ish) platforms has been upgraded to a much later
209 version of the underlying C code from BSD. [Michael Schwern]
210
2113.2501 - Mon Dec 24 20:33:02 2007
212
213 - Reimplemented abs_path() on VMS to use
214 VMS::Filespec::vms_realpath() when it's available. [John E. Malmberg]
215
216 - tmpdir() on Cygwin now also looks in $ENV{TMP} and $ENV{TEMP}.
217
218 - case_tolerant() on Cygwin and Win32 now take an optional path
219 argument, defaulting to the C drive, to check for case tolerance,
220 because this fact can vary on different volumes.
221
222 - File::Spec on Unix now uses Cwd::getcwd() rather than Cwd::cwd() to
223 get the current directory because I guess someone on p5p thought it
224 was more appropriate.
225
226 - Added a large set of File::Spec tests for the Cygwin platform.
227
228 - abs_path() now behaves correctly with symbolic links on VMS.
229
230 - Someone fixed a couple of mysterious edge cases in VMS' canonpath()
231 and splitdir().
232
2333.25_01 - Sat Oct 13 21:13:57 2007
234
235 - Major fixes on Win32, including a rewrite of catdir(), catfile(),
236 and canonpath() in terms of a single body of code. [Heinrich Tegethoff]
237
238 - For Win32 and Cygwin, case-tolerance can vary depending on the
239 volume under scrutiny. When Win32API::File is available, it will
240 be employed to determine case-sensitivity of the given filesystem
241 (C: by default), otherwise we still return the default of 1. [Reini
242 Urban]
243
244 - On Cygwin, we added $ENV{'TMP'} and $ENV{'TEMP'} to the list of
245 possible places to look for tmpdir() return values. [Reini Urban]
246
247 - Added lots more tests for Cygwin. [Reini Urban]
248
249 - canonpath() with no arguments and canonpath(undef) now consistently
250 return undef on all platforms. [Spotted by Peter John Edwards]
251
252 - Fixed splitdir('') and splitdir(undef) and splitdir() to return an
253 empty list on VMS and MacOS, like it does on other platforms.
254 [Craig A. Berry]
255
256 - All .pm files now have the same $VERSION number, rather than a
257 hodgepodge of various numbers.
258
2593.25 - Mon May 21 21:07:26 2007
260
261 - Added a workaround for auto-vivication-of-function-args Perl bug
262 (triggered by OS/2-specific code). [Ilya Zakharevich]
263
264 - Sync with a bleadperl change: miniperl can no longer use Win32::*
265 functions because it cannot load Win32.dll. [Jan Dubois]
266
267 - We only need to load ppport.h when building outside the core, so we
268 avoid using it when in the core.
269
2703.24 - Sun Nov 19 22:52:49 2006
271
272 - Fixed a bug in the $ENV{PWD}-updating of Cwd::chdir() when a
273 dirhandle is passed in. [Steve Peters]
274
275 - Add perl 5.005 to the list of requirements in the
276 Build.PL/Makefile.PL/META.yml.
277
278 - Add ExtUtils::CBuilder to the list of build_requires in Build.PL.
279
280 - Improved performance of canonpath() on Unix-ish platforms - on my
281 OS X laptop it looks like it's about twice as fast. [Ruslan Zakirov]
282
2833.23 - Wed Oct 11 12:11:25 2006
284
285 - Yet more Win32 fixes (sigh... seems like I'm fighting a neverending
286 waterbed...). This time, fixed file_name_is_absolute() to know
287 what it's doing when the path includes a volume but a relative
288 path, like C:foo.txt . This bug had impact in rel2abs() on Win32
289 too.
290
2913.22 - Mon Oct 9 21:50:52 2006
292
293 - Fixed the t/crossplatform.t test on Win32 (and possibly other
294 volume-aware platforms) now that rel2abs() always adds a drive
295 letter. [Reported by several parties]
296
2973.21 - Wed Oct 4 21:16:43 2006
298
299 - Added a bunch of X<> tags to the File::Spec docs to help
300 podindex. [Gabor Szabo]
301
302 - On Win32, abs2rel('C:\one\two\t\foo', 't\bar') should return
303 '..\foo' when the cwd is 'C:\one\two', but it wasn't noticing that
304 the two relevant volumes were the same so it would return the full
305 path 'C:\one\two\t\foo'. This is fixed. [Spotted by Alexandr
306 Ciornii]
307
308 - On Win32, rel2abs() now always adds a volume (drive letter) if the
309 given path doesn't have a volume (drive letter or UNC volume).
310 Previously it could return a value that didn't have a volume if the
311 input was a semi-absolute path like /foo/bar instead of a
312 fully-absolute path like C:/foo/bar .
313
3143.19 Tue Jul 11 22:40:26 CDT 2006
315
316 - When abs2rel() is called with two relative paths
317 (e.g. abs2rel('foo/bar/baz', 'foo/bar')) the resolution algorithm
318 needlessly called cwd() (twice!) to turn both arguments into
319 absolute paths. Now it avoids the cwd() calls with a workaround,
320 making a big efficiency win when abs2rel() is called
321 repeatedly. [Brendan O'Dea]
322
323 - Added a build-time dependency on ExtUtils::Install version 1.39
324 when on Windows. This is necessary because version 1.39 knows how
325 to replace an in-use Cwd shared library, but previous versions
326 don't. [Suggested by Adam Kennedy]
327
328 - Fixed File::Spec::Win32->canonpath('foo/../bar'), which was
329 returning \bar, and now properly returns just bar. [Spotted by
330 Heinrich Tegethoff]
331
3323.18 Thu Apr 27 22:01:38 CDT 2006
333
334 - Fixed some problems on VMS in which a directory called "0" would be
335 treated as a second-class citizen. [Peter (Stig) Edwards]
336
337 - Added a couple of regression tests to make sure abs2rel('/foo/bar',
338 '/') works as expected. [Chia-liang Kao]
339
340 - Added a couple of regression tests to make sure catdir('/',
341 'foo/bar') works as expected. [Mark Grimes]
342
3433.17 Fri Mar 3 16:52:30 CST 2006
344
345 - The Cygwin version of Cwd::cwd() will croak if given any arguments
346 (which can happen if, for example, it's called as Cwd->cwd). Since
347 that croaking is bad, we now wrap the original cwd() in a
348 subroutine that ignores its arguments. We could skip this wrapping
349 if a future version of perl changes cygwin.c's cwd() to not barf
350 when fed an argument. [Jerry D. Hedden]
351
3523.16 Mon Jan 30 20:48:41 CST 2006
353
354 - Updated to version 3.06 of ppport.h, which provides backward
355 compatibility XS layers for older perl versions.
356
357 - Clarify in the docs for File::Spec's abs2rel() and rel2abs()
358 methods that the cwd() function it discusses is
359 Cwd::cwd(). [Spotted by Steven Lembark]
360
361 - Apparently the version of File::Path that ships with perl 5.8.5
362 (and perhaps others) calls Cwd::getcwd() with an argument (perhaps
363 as a method?), which causes it to die with a prototyping error.
364 We've eliminated the prototype by using the "(...)" arglist, since
365 "PROTOTYPE: DISABLE" for the function didn't seem to work. [Spotted
366 by Eamon Daly and others]
367
3683.15 Tue Dec 27 14:17:39 CST 2005
369
370 - The Cwd::getcwd() function on *nix is now a direct pass-through to
371 the underlying getcwd() C library function when possible. This is
372 safer and faster than the previous implementation, which just did
373 abs_path('.'). The pure-perl version has been kept for cases in
374 which the XS version can't load, such as when running under
375 miniperl. [Suggested by Nick Ing-Simmons]
376
377 - When Cwd searches for a 'pwd' executable in the $PATH, we now stop
378 after we find the first one rather than continuing the search. We
379 also avoid the $PATH search altogether when a 'pwd' was already
380 found in a well-known and well-trusted location like /bin or
381 /usr/bin. [Suggested by Nick Ing-Simmons]
382
383 - On Win32 abs2rel($path, $base) was failing whenever $base is the
384 root of a volume (such as C:\ or \\share\dir). This has been
385 fixed. [Reported by Bryan Daimler]
386
387 - In abs2rel() on VMS, we've fixed handling of directory trees so
388 that the test $file = File::Spec::VMS->abs2rel('[t1.t2.t3]file',
389 '[t1.t2.t3]') returns 'file' instead of an empty string. [John
390 E. Malmberg]
391
392 - In canonpath() on VMS, '[]' was totally optimized away instead of
393 just returning '[]'. Now it's fixed. [John E. Malmberg]
394
3953.14 Thu Nov 17 18:08:44 CST 2005
396
397 - canonpath() has some logic in it that avoids collapsing a
398 //double/slash at the beginning of a pathname on platforms where
399 that means something special. It used to check the value of $^O
400 rather than the classname it was called as, which meant that
401 calling File::Spec::Cygwin->canonpath() didn't act like cygwin
402 unless you were actually *on* cygwin. Now it does.
403
404 - Fixed a major bug on Cygwin in which catdir() could sometimes
405 create things that look like //network/paths in cases when it
406 shouldn't (e.g. catdir("/", "foo", "bar")).
407
4083.13 Tue Nov 15 23:50:37 CST 2005
409
410 - Calling tmpdir() on Win32 had the unintended side-effect of storing
411 some undef values in %INC for the TMPDIR, TEMP, and TMP entries if
412 they didn't exist already. This is probably a bug in perl itself
413 (submitted as #37441 on rt.perl.org), which we're now working
414 around. [Thomas L. Shinnick]
415
416 - Integrated a change from bleadperl - a certain #ifdef in Cwd.xs
417 needs to apply to WIN32 but not WinCE. [Vadim Konovalov]
418
419 - abs2rel() used to return the empty string when its two arguments
420 were identical, which made no sense. Now it returns
421 curdir(). [Spotted by David Golden]
422
423 - The Unix and Win32 implementations of abs2rel() have been unified.
424
4253.12 Mon Oct 3 22:09:12 CDT 2005
426
427 - Fixed a testing error on OS/2 in which a drive letter for the root
428 directory was confusing things. [Ilya Zakharevich]
429
430 - Integrated a patch from bleadperl for fixing path() on
431 Win32. [Gisle Aas]
432
4333.11 Sat Aug 27 20:12:55 CDT 2005
434
435 - Fixed a couple of typos in the documentation for
436 File::Spec::Mac. [Piotr Fusik]
437
4383.10 Thu Aug 25 22:24:57 CDT 2005
439
440 - eliminate_macros() and fixpath() in File::Spec::VMS are now
441 deprecated, since they are MakeMaker-specific and now live inside
442 MakeMaker. [Michael Schwern]
443
444 - canonpath() on Win32 now collapses foo/.. (or foo\..) sections
445 correctly, rather than doing the "misguided" work it was previously
446 doing. Note that canonpath() on Unix still does NOT collapse these
447 sections, as doing so would be incorrect. [Michael Schwern]
448
4493.09 Tue Jun 14 20:36:50 CDT 2005
450
451 - Added some block delimiters (brackets) in the Perl_getcwd_sv() XS
452 function, which were necessary to separate the variable
453 declarations from the statements when HAS_GETCWD is not
454 defined. [Yves]
455
456 - Apparently the _NT_cwd() routine is never defined externally like I
457 thought it was, so I simplified the code around it.
458
459 - When cwd() is implemented using the _backtick_pwd() function, it
460 sometimes could create accidental undef entries in %ENV under perl
461 5.6, because local($hash{key}) is somewhat broken. This is now
462 fixed with an appropriate workaround. [Neil Watkiss]
463
4643.08 Sat May 28 10:10:29 CDT 2005
465
466 - Fixed a test failure with fast_abs_path() on Windows - it was
467 sensitive to the rootdir() change from version 3.07. [Steve Hay]
468
4693.07 Fri May 6 07:46:45 CDT 2005
470
471 - Fixed a bug in which the special perl variable $^O would become
472 tainted under certain versions of perl. [Michael Schwern]
473
474 - File::Spec->rootdir() was returning / on Win32. Now it returns \ .
475 [Michael Schwern]
476
477 - We now avoid modifying @_ in tmpdir() when it's not strictly
478 necessary, which reportedly provides a modest performance
479 boost. [Richard Soderberg]
480
481 - Made a couple of slight changes to the Win32 code so that it works
482 (or works better) on Symbian OS phones. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
483
4843.06 Wed Apr 13 20:47:26 CDT 2005
485
486 (No changes in functionality)
487
488 - Added a note to the canonpath() docs about why it doesn't collapse
489 foo/../bar sections.
490
491 - The internal-only function bsd_realpath() in the XS file now uses
492 normal arg syntax instead of K&R syntax. [Nicholas Clark]
493
4943.05 Mon Feb 28 07:22:58 CST 2005
495
496 - Fixed a bug in fast_abs_path() on Win32 in which forward- and
497 backward-slashes were confusing things. [demerphq]
498
499 - Failure to load the XS code in Cwd is no longer a fatal error
500 (though failure to compile it is still a fatal error in the build
501 process). This lets Cwd work under miniperl in the core. [Rafael
502 Garcia-Suarez]
503
504 - In the t/cwd.t test, don't enforce loading from blib/ if we're
505 testing in the perl core. [Rafael Garcia-Suarez]
506
5073.04 Sun Feb 6 17:27:38 CST 2005
508
509 - For perls older than 5.006, the HAS_GETCWD symbol is not available,
510 because it wasn't checked for in older Configure scripts when perl
511 was built. We therefore just ask the user whether the getcwd() C
512 function is defined on their platform when their perl is old.
513 Maybe in the future we'll try to automate this. [Reported by
514 several parties]
515
516 - Remove lib/ppport.h from the distribution, so that MakeMaker
517 doesn't accidentally pick it up and install it as a lib
518 file. [Jerry Hedden]
519
520 - Fixed a testing error on VMS that occurred when a user had
521 read-access to the root of the current volume. [Craig A. Berry]
522
5233.03 Fri Jan 21 21:44:05 CST 2005
524
525 - Fixed a testing error if the first file we find in the root
526 directory is a symlink. [Blair Zajac]
527
528 - Added a test to make sure Cwd.pm is loaded from blib/ during
529 testing, which seems to be an issue in some people's environments
530 and makes it awfully hard to debug things on my end.
531
532 - Skip the _perl_abs_path() tests on Cygwin - they don't usually
533 pass, and this function isn't used there anyway, so I decided not
534 to push it. Let 'em use `cwd`.
535
5363.02 Sun Jan 9 19:29:52 CST 2005
537
538 - Fixed a bug in which Cwd::abs_path() called on a file in the root
539 directory returned strange results. [Bob Luckin]
540
541 - Straightened out the licensing details for the portion of the Cwd
542 module that comes from BSD sources. [Hugo van der Sanden]
543
544 - Removed the prototype from _perl_abs_path() and the XS version of
545 abs_path(), since all they seemed to be doing was causing people
546 grief, and since some platforms didn't have them anyway.
547
548 - Fixed a testing bug in which sometimes the wrong version of Cwd
549 (the version already installed on the user's machine) would get
550 loaded instead of the one we're building & installing.
551
552 - Sometimes getdcwd() returns a lower-case drive letter, so don't
553 require an upper-case letter in t/win32.t. [Jan Dubois]
554
555 - Fixed a memory leak in getdcwd() on win32. [Steve Hay]
556
557 - Added a copy of ppport.h to the distribution to aid compilation on
558 older versions of perl. [Suggested by Charlie Root]
559
560 - Don't bother looking for a 'pwd' executable on MSWin32 - there
561 won't be one, and looking for it can be extremely slow when lots of
562 disks are mounted. [Several people, including Andrew Burke]
563
564 - Eliminated a multi-argument form of open() that was causing a
565 syntax error on older versions of perl. [Fixed by Michael Schwern]
566
567 - The bug-fix changes for revision 0.90 of File::Spec somehow were
568 lost when I merged it into the PathTools distribution. They're
569 restored now. [Craig A. Berry]
570
571 - File::Spec->canonpath() will now reduce paths like '[d1.-]foo.dat'
572 down to '[000000]foo.dat' instead of '[]foo.dat' or 'foo.dat'.
573 This is in better accordance with the native filename syntax
574 parser. [Craig A. Berry]
575
576 - In order to remove a recursive dependency (PathTools -> Test-Simple
577 -> Test-Harness -> PathTools), we now include a copy of Test::More in
578 the distribution. It is only used for testing, it won't be installed
579 with the rest of the stuff.
580
581 - Removed some 5.6-isms from Cwd in order to get it to build with
582 older perls like 5.005.
583
584 - abs_path() on Windows was trampling on $ENV{PWD} - fixed. [Spotted
585 by Neil MacMullen]
586
587 - Added licensing/copyright statements to the POD in each .pm
588 file. [Spotted by Radoslaw Zielinski]
589
5903.01 Mon Sep 6 22:28:06 CDT 2004
591
592 - Removed an unnecessary and confusing dependency on File::Spec from
593 the Makefile.PL and the Build.PL.
594
595 - Added a 'NAME' entry to the Makefile.PL, because otherwise it won't
596 even begin to work. [Reported by many]
597
5983.00 Thu Sep 2 22:15:07 CDT 2004
599
600 - Merged Cwd and File::Spec into a single PathTools distribution.
601 This was done because the two modules use each other fairly
602 extensively, and extracting the common stuff into another
603 distribution was deemed nigh-impossible. The code in revision 3.00
604 of PathTools should be equivalent to the code in Cwd 2.21 and
605 File::Spec 0.90.
606
607==================================================================
608Prior to revision 3.00, Cwd and File::Spec were maintained as two
609separate distributions. The revision history for Cwd is shown here.
610The revision history for File::Spec is further below.
611==================================================================
612
613Cwd 2.21 Tue Aug 31 22:50:14 CDT 2004
614
615 - Removed "NO_META" from the Makefile.PL, since I'm not building the
616 distribution with MakeMaker anyway. [Rohan Carly]
617
618 - Only test _perl_abs_path() on platforms where it's expected to work
619 (platforms with '/' as the directory separator). [Craig A. Berry]
620
621Cwd 2.20 Thu Jul 22 08:23:53 CDT 2004
622
623 - On some implementations of perl on Win32, a memory leak (or worse?)
624 occurred when calling getdcwd(). This has been fixed. [PodMaster]
625
626 - Added tests for getdcwd() on Win32.
627
628 - Fixed a problem in the pure-perl implementation _perl_abs_path()
629 that caused a fatal error when run on plain files. [Nicholas Clark]
630 To exercise the appropriate test code on platforms that wouldn't
631 otherwise use _perl_abs_path(), run the tests with $ENV{PERL_CORE}
632 or $ENV{TEST_PERL_CWD_CODE} set.
633
634Cwd 2.19 Thu Jul 15 08:32:18 CDT 2004
635
636 - The abs_path($arg) fix from 2.18 didn't work for VMS, now it's
637 fixed there. [Craig Berry]
638
639Cwd 2.18 Thu Jun 24 08:22:57 CDT 2004
640
641 - Fixed a problem in which abs_path($arg) on some platforms could
642 only be called on directories, and died when called on files. This
643 was a problem in the pure-perl implementation _perl_abs_path().
644
645 - Fixed fast_abs_path($arg) in the same way as abs_path($arg) above.
646
647 - On Win32, a function getdcwd($vol) has been added, which gets the
648 current working directory of the specified drive/volume.
649 [Steve Hay]
650
651 - Fixed a problem on perl 5.6.2 when built with the MULTIPLICITY
652 compile-time flags. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
653
654 - When looking for a `pwd` system command, we no longer assume the
655 path separator is ':'.
656
657 - On platforms where cwd() is implemented internally (like Win32),
658 don't look for a `pwd` command externally. This can greatly speed
659 up load time. [Stefan Scherer]
660
661 - The pure-perl version of abs_path() now has the same prototype as
662 the XS version (;$).
663
664Cwd 2.17 Wed Mar 10 07:55:36 CST 2004
665
666 - The change in 2.16 created a testing failure when tested from
667 within a path that contains symlinks (for instance, /tmp ->
668 /private/tmp).
669
670Cwd 2.16 Sat Mar 6 17:56:31 CST 2004
671
672 - For VMS compatibility (and to conform to Cwd's documented
673 interface), in the regression tests we now compare output results
674 to an absolute path. [Craig A. Berry]
675
676Cwd 2.15 Fri Jan 16 08:09:44 CST 2004
677
678 - Fixed a problem on static perl builds - while creating
679 Makefile.aperl, it was loading a mismatched version of Cwd from
680 blib/ . [Reported by Blair Zajac]
681
682Cwd 2.14 Thu Jan 8 18:51:08 CST 2004
683
684 - We now use File::Spec->canonpath() and properly-escaped regular
685 expressions when comparing paths in the regression tests. This
686 fixes some testing failures in 2.13 on non-Unix platforms. No
687 changes were made in the actual Cwd module code. [Steve Hay]
688
689Cwd 2.13 Fri Jan 2 22:29:42 CST 2004
690
691 - Changed a '//' comment to a '/* */' comment in the XS code, so that
692 it'll compile properly under ANSI C rules. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
693
694 - Fixed a 1-character buffer overrun problem in the C code. [The BSD
695 people]
696
697Cwd 2.12 Fri Dec 19 17:04:52 CST 2003
698
699 - Fixed a bug on Cygwin - the output of realpath() should have been
700 tainted, but wasn't. [Reported by Tom Wyant]
701
702Cwd 2.10 Mon Dec 15 07:50:12 CST 2003
703
704 (Note that this release was mistakenly packaged as version 2.11, even
705 though it had an internal $VERSION variable of 2.10. Not sure how
706 THAT happened...)
707
708 - There was a dependency in the Makefile.PL on Module::Build, which
709 isn't necessary. I've removed it.
710
711Cwd 2.09 Thu Dec 11 20:30:58 CST 2003
712
713 - The module should now build & install using version 5.6 of perl.
714
715 - We now note a build-time dependency on version 0.19 of
716 Module::Build, which is necessary because we don't use the standard
717 lib/-based file layout. No version of Module::Build is required if
718 you use the Makefile.PL, just if you use the Build.PL .
719
720 - Removed some gratuitous uses of 5.6-isms like our(), with the aim
721 of backporting this module to perl 5.005.
722
723 - Simplified all code that autoloads Carp.pm and calls
724 carp()/croak().
725
726 - Removed some redundant OS/2 code at the suggestion of Michael
727 Schwern and Ilya Zakharevich.
728
729 - Make sure the correct version of Cwd.pm is loaded in the regression
730 tests. [Sam Vilain]
731
732Cwd 2.08 Wed Oct 15 20:56 CDT 2003
733
734 - Code extracted from perl 5.8.1 and packaged as a separate CPAN
735 release by Ken Williams.
736
737==================================================================
738Prior to revision 3.00, Cwd and File::Spec were maintained as two
739separate distributions. The revision history for File::Spec is shown
740here. The revision history for Cwd is above.
741==================================================================
742
743File::Spec 0.90 Tue Aug 31 22:34:50 CDT 2004
744
745 - On VMS, directories use vmspath() and files use vmsify(), so
746 rel2abs() has to use some 'educated guessing' when dealing with
747 paths containing slashes. [Craig A. Berry]
748
749File::Spec 0.89 Sun Aug 29 19:02:32 CDT 2004
750
751 - Fixed some pathological cases on VMS which broke canonpath() and
752 splitdir(). [Richard Levitte and Craig A. Berry]
753
754 - Fixed rel2abs() on VMS when passed a unix-style relative
755 path. [Craig A. Berry]
756
757File::Spec 0.88 Thu Jul 22 23:14:32 CDT 2004
758
759 - rel2abs() on Win32 will now use the new Cwd::getdcwd() function, so
760 that things like rel2abs('D:foo.txt') work properly when the
761 current drive isn't 'D'. This requires Cwd version 2.18.
762 [Steve Hay]
763
764 - Got rid of a redundant double-backslash in a character
765 class. [Alexander Farber]
766
767 - Added much markup to pod for enhanced readability. [Andy Lester]
768
769File::Spec 0.87 Fri Dec 19 08:03:28 CST 2003
770
771 - With a one-line change in the tests, backported to perl 5.004.
772 [Issue reported by Barry Kemble]
773
774File::Spec 0.86 Fri Sep 26 10:07:39 CDT 2003
775
776 - This is the version released with perl 5.8.1. It is identical to
777 the code in the File::Spec beta 0.85_03.
778
779File::Spec 0.85_03 Mon Sep 15 09:35:53 CDT 2003
780
781 - On VMS, if catpath() receives volume specifiers in both its first
782 two arguments, it will now use the volume in the first argument
783 only. Previously it returned a non-syntactical result which
784 included both volumes. This change is the same in spirit to the
785 catpath() MacOS change from version 0.85_02.
786
787 - Fixed an abs2rel() bug on VMS - previously
788 abs2rel('[t1.t2.t3]file','[t1.t2]') returned '[t3]file', now it
789 properly returns '[.t3]file'.
790
791File::Spec 0.85_02 Fri Sep 12 17:11:13 CDT 2003
792
793 - abs2rel() now behaves more consistently across platforms with the
794 notion of a volume. If the volumes of the first and second
795 argument (the second argument may be implicit) do not agree, we do
796 not attempt to reconcile the paths, and simply return the first
797 argument. Previously the volume of the second argument was
798 (usually) ignored, resulting in sometimes-garbage output.
799
800 - catpath() on MacOS now looks for a volume element (i.e. "Macintosh HD:")
801 in its first argument, and then its second argument. The first
802 volume found will be used, and if none is found, none will be used.
803
804 - Fixed a problem in abs2rel() on Win32 in which the volume of the
805 current working directory would get added to the second argument if
806 none was specified. This might have been somewhat helpful, but it
807 was contrary to the documented behavior. For example,
808 abs2rel('C:/foo/bar', '/foo') used to return 'bar', now it returns
809 'C:/foo/bar' because there's no guarantee /foo is actually C:/foo .
810
811 - catdir('/', '../') on OS2 previously erroneously returned '//..',
812 and now it returns '/'.
813
814File::Spec 0.85_01 Thu Sep 11 16:18:54 CDT 2003
815
816 Working toward 0.86, the version that will be released with perl 5.8.1.
817
818 - The t/rel2abs2rel.t test now is a little friendlier about emitting
819 its diagnostic debugging output. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
820
821 - We now only require() Cwd when it's needed, on demand. [Michael
822 Schwern, Tels]
823
824 - Fixed some POD errors and redundancies in OS2.pm and Cygwin.pm.
825 [Michael Schwern]
826
827 - The internal method cwd() has been renamed to _cwd(), since it was
828 never meant for public use. [Michael Schwern]
829
830 - Several methods in File::Spec::Unix that just return constant
831 strings have been sped up. catdir() has also been sped up there.
832 [Tels]
833
834 - Several canonpath() and catdir() bugs on Win32 have been fixed, and
835 tests added for them:
836 catdir('/', '../') -> '\\' (was '\..')
837 catdir('/', '..\\') -> '\\ (was '')
838 canonpath('\\../') -> '\\' (was '')
839 canonpath('\\..\\') -> '\\' (was '')
840 canonpath('/../') -> '\\' (was '\..')
841 canonpath('/..\\') -> '\\' (was '')
842 catdir('\\', 'foo') -> '\foo' (was '\\foo')
843
844 - catpath($volume, $dirs, $file) on Mac OS now ignores any volume
845 that might be part of $dirs, enabling catpath($volume,
846 catdir(rootdir(), 'foo'), '') to work portably across platforms.
847
848File::Spec 0.85 Tue Jul 22 11:31 CDT 2003
849
850 A bug-fix release relative to 0.84. I've forked development into a
851 "stable" branch (this one) and a more aggressive branch (as yet
852 unreleased), with an eye toward getting the stable features in perl
853 5.8.1.
854
855 - File::Spec::Mac->case_tolerant() returned 0 when it should have
856 returned 1.
857
858 - Many cases in File::Spec::Win32->abs2rel() were broken, because of
859 the way in which volumes were/weren't ignored. Unfortunately, part
860 of the regression tests were broken too. Now, if the $path
861 argument to abs2rel() is on a different volume than the $base
862 argument, the result will be an absolute path rather than the
863 broken relative path previous versions returned.
864
865 - Fixed a problem in File::Spec::Win32->canonpath, which was turning
866 \../foo into "foo" rather than \foo
867
868 - Greatly simplified the code in File::Spec::Unix->splitdir().
869
870File::Spec 0.84_01 Fri Jul 11 16:14:29 CDT 2003
871
872 No actual code changes, just changes in other distribution files
873
874 - Dependencies are now listed explicitly in the Makefile.PL and
875 Build.PL scripts, as well as in the META.yml file.
876
877 - The t/abs2rel2abs.t test should now be more friendly about skipping
878 on platforms where it can't run properly.
879
880File::Spec 0.84 Wed Jul 9 22:21:23 CDT 2003
881
882 I (Ken)'ve taken the changes from bleadperl and created a new CPAN release
883 from them, since they're pretty important changes. The highlights,
884 from what I can tell, are listed here.
885
886 - A huge number of changes to File::Spec::Mac in order to bring it in
887 line with the other platforms. This work was mostly/completely
888 done by Thomas Wegner.
889
890 - The Epoc and Cygwin platforms are now supported.
891
892 - Lots of generically-applicable documentation has been taken from
893 File::Spec::Unix and put in File::Spec.
894
895 - A Build.PL has been provided for people who wish to install via
896 Module::Build.
897
898 - Some spurious warnings and errors in the tests have been
899 eliminated. [Michael Schwern]
900
901 - canonpath() on File::Spec::Unix now honors a //node-name at the
902 beginning of a path.
903
904 - Cwd.pm wasn't being loaded properly on MacOS. [Chris Nandor]
905
906 - Various POD fixups
907
908 - Several testing patches for the Epoc and Cygwin platforms [Tels]
909
910 - When running under taint mode and perl >= 5.8, all the tmpdir()
911 implementations now avoid returning a tainted path.
912
913 - File::Spec::OS2 now implements canonpath(), splitpath(),
914 splitdir(), catpath(), abs2rel(), and rel2abs() directly rather
915 than inheriting them from File::Spec::Unix.
916
917 - Added 'SYS:/temp' and 'C:/temp' to the list of possible tmpdir()s
918 on Win32.
919
920 - catfile() on Win32 and VMS will now automatically call canonpath()
921 on its final argument.
922
923 - canonpath() on Win32 now does a much more extensive cleanup of the
924 path.
925
926 - abs2rel() on Win32 now defaults to using cwd() as the base of
927 relativity when no base is given.
928
929 - abs2rel() on Win32 now explicitly ignores any volume component in
930 the $path argument.
931
932 - canonpath() on VMS now does []foo ==> foo, and foo.000000] ==> foo].
933 It also fixes a bug in multiple [000000.foo ==> [foo translations.
934
935 - tmpdir() on VMS now uses 'sys$scratch:' instead of 'sys$scratch'.
936
937 - abs2rel() on VMS now uses '000000' in both the path and the base.
938
939File::Spec 0.82 Wed Jun 28 11:24:05 EDT 2000
940 - Mac.pm: file_name_is_absolute( '' ) now returns TRUE on all platforms
941 - Spec.pm: unbreak C<$VERSION = '0.xx'> to be C<$VERSION = 0.xx>, so
942 underscores can be used when I want to update CPAN without anyone
943 needing to update the perl repository.
944 - abs2rel, rel2abs doc tweaks
945 - VMS.pm: get $path =~ /\s/ checks from perl repository.
946 - Makefile.PL: added INSTALLDIRS => 'perl', since these are std. modules.
947 - Remove vestigial context prototypes from &rel2abs until some future
948 arrives where method prototypes are honored.
