File ChangeLog from the latest check-in

2018-02-04  Nils Carlson <[email protected]>

	* exp_inter.c: [https://sourceforge.net/p/expect/patches/22/]
	Fix interact bug - handle reads of 0 length on
	non-blocking channels by explicitly checking if the channel
	is non-blocking. Fix by Jack Bates.

	* expect.c: [https://sourceforge.net/p/expect/patches/21/]
	Fix eof bug introduced with previous bug fix - ensure that data
	received just before an eof is processed. Fix by Sergei Golovan.

2014-05-01  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_main_sub.c: Updated EXP_VERSION to 5.45.3
	* configure, configure.in: Updated expect to version 5.45.3

	* expect.man [http://sourceforge.net/p/expect/bugs/86/]. Report
	  and fix by Vitezlav Crhonek.

	* expect.c [http://sourceforge.net/p/expect/bugs/76/]. Report and
	  fix by Mutsuhito Iikura. On finding a full buffer during
	  matching the sliding window mechanism slides too far, truncating
	  the whole buffer and preventing matches across the boundary. Fix
	  is shortening the slide distance (slide only one 1/3).

	* expect.c: [http://sourceforge.net/p/expect/patches/18/]. Report
	  and fix both by Nils Carlson <[email protected]>.
	  Replaced a cc==0 check with proper Tcl_Eof() check.

2013-11-04  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]tivestate.com>

	* tclconfig/tcl.m4: [http://sourceforge.net/p/expect/patches/17/]
	* configure: Extended Tcl header detection for OS X Mountain Lion.

	* exp_main_sub.c: Updated EXP_VERSION to 5.45.2
	* configure, configure.in: Updated expect to version 5.45.2

	* expect.c: [http://sourceforge.net/p/expect/patches/16/]. Report
	  and fix both by Per Cederqvist. Replaced a memcpy with memmove
	  as the latter properly handles overlapping memory, whereas the
	  original code does not.

2012-08-15  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_main_sub.c: Updated EXP_VERSION to 5.45.1
	* configure, configure.in: Updated expect to version 5.45.1

	* exp_chan.c: Applied patch sent in by Ogawa Hirofumi
	  <[email protected]>. The patch fixes a problem when
	  talking a tty where the writer has died. Some operating systems
	  report the condition as EIO with nothing read, while this
	  actually an EOF. Without the patch the returned data is
	  incomplete due to the error reported immediately and dropping
	  data in buffers.

2012-05-16  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c: [Bug 3526461]: Applied patch by Michael Cleverly
	  <[email protected]> fixing a problem with the
	  iteration over the expect channel list where the loop code may
	  modify the list, breaking the iterator.

	* exp_chan.c: [Bug 3526707]: Applied patch by Michael Cleverly
	* exp_command.h: <[email protected]> fixing problem
	* expect.c: with an insufficient test for a lost channel in

2010-10-26  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* expect.c: [Bug 3095935]: Convert #bytes information to #chars to
	  prevent later code to fail when copying strings around and
	  miscalculating how much to copy, for strings containing
	  non-ASCII utf chars.

2010-09-30  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* example/autopasswd: Updated to use tclsh in PATH, and 'package
	* example/chess.exp: require Expect'. Obsoletes fixline1.
	* example/cryptdir:
	* example/decryptdir:
	* example/dislocate:
	* example/dvorak:
	* example/ftp-inband:
	* example/ftp-rfc:
	* example/gethostbyaddr:
	* example/kibitz:
	* example/lpunlock:
	* example/mkpasswd:
	* example/multixterm:
	* example/passmass:
	* example/read1char:
	* example/rftp:
	* example/rlogin-cwd:
	* example/robohunt:
	* example/rogue.exp:
	* example/telnet-cwd:
	* example/timed-read:
	* example/timed-run:
	* example/unbuffer:
	* example/virterm:
	* example/weather:
	* example/xkibitz:
	* example/xpstat:

	* Makefile.in: Continued work on the 'make dist' target (config.{sub,guess})
	* install.sh: Removed unused file.
	* mkinstalldirs: Removed unused file.
	* tclconfig/README.txt: Removed unused file.
	* testsuite/config/: Removed contents of unused directory.
	* test/.Sanitize: Removed unused file.

2010-09-17  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in: improved make dist target to include the necessary
	files, and remove old dist_orig.
	Enable Makefile regen target

2010-09-16  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* configure: regen with ac-2.59
	* tclconfig/tcl.m4: update for correct LDFLAGS on HP-UX
	* Makefile.in (expect): use TEA LDFLAGS instead of tclConfig.sh to
	build expect executable

2010-09-01  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in: [Bug 865278] Semi-applied Don Porter's patch adding
	code which prevents the package from registering with Tcl
	interpreters which cannot load it, i.e. below the version it was
	compiled against. Semi because the pkgIndex.in in his patch is
	not used, the pkgIndex.tcl is generated by the Makefile(.in).
	* pkgIndex.in: Removed. File not used.

2010-08-31  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* Various cleanups, local patches of ActiveState.
	* exp_clib.c: Remove local copy of Tcl_ErrnoMsg().
	* exp_inter.c: Hack access to TCL_REG_BOSONLY when not present,
	became private with Tcl 8.5 and higher.
	* expect.h: Remove the local fiddling with the memory allocation
	and panic macros.

	* Dbg.c: [Bug 2972727]: Applied the parts of Larry Virden's patch
	  which were still current. Most of it applied to the partially
	  ansified sources we had in trunk for a time and where errors in
	  that set of changes, thus out of date now.

	* example/unbuffer: [Bug 2949748]: Applied patch by Vitezslav
	  Crhonek <[email protected]> to prevent unbuffer
	  from eating the exit code of the command it ran (regular mode
	  only, not -p). Slightly modified, I removed the superfluous
	  'eval' used to invoke 'wait', invoking it directly.

2010-08-27  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* retoglob.c: Fail if the generated glob contains more than
	two asterisks.  Fixes [Expect SF Bug 3010684] (cederqvist)

	* exp_main_sub.c: add return to silence compiler warning.
	Updated EXP_VERSION to 5.45.0

	* config.guess, config.sub, expect.m4 (removed):
	* configure, configure.in, tclconfig/tcl.m4: Update to TEA 3.9
	* Makefile.in, aclocal.m4: Partial cleanup of the build system.
	* testsuite/Makefile.in:   Remove unused EXP_ from configure.in
	* testsuite/aclocal.m4:    and no longer use Tk.
	* testsuite/configure:     Update testsuite bits to use TEA info.
	* testsuite/configure.in:
	Update expect to version 5.45

	* Dbg.c: account for removal of tcldbgcf.h
	* DbgMkfl.in, Dbgconfig.in, Dbgconfigure, DbgpkgInd.in (removed):
	* tcldbgcf.h.in (removed): removed Dbg debugger subcomponent as it
	no longer built and debugger functionality is included in expect
	library and binary

	* pty_termios.c: add HAVE_STRING_H include string.h
	* exp_trap.c: add HAVE_STRING_H include string.h

	* expectk.man, exp_main_tk.c (removed): expectk no longer
	built. Use tclsh with package require Tk and Expect instead.

	* tests/all.tcl: add package require Expect

	* example/archie, example/autoexpect: minor code cleanup
	* example/tkpasswd, example/tknewsbiff, example/tkterm: use
	package require statements in lieu of expectk

2009-11-03  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_command.c (Exp_SpawnObjCmd): [Expect SF Bug 2891422]. Fixed
	  error message when the command to spawn could not be executed.
	  Tried to use a Tcl_Obj* as argument for a %s. Replaced with the
	  correct char* variable. Thanks to Elchonon Edelson
	  <[email protected]> for the report.
	  [Expect SF Bug 2891563] Ditto for the same type of bug when
	  emitting error 'usage: -ignore unknown signal name'. The
	  remainder of the exp_error calls are ok however.

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2009-07-14  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_clib.c (TclRegComp): Fixed memory leak reported by
	  <[email protected]> in [Expect SF Bug 2814263].

2009-06-22  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* pty_unicos.c (pty_stty): Fixed missing double-quotes for sprint
	  formatting strings. Thanks to <[email protected]>
	  for the report, i.e. [Expect SF Bug 2809496].

2009-06-18  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_command.c (Exp_LogFileObjCmd): Fix argument parsing logic
	  error in the log_file command breaking the use of options -open
	  and -leaveopen. Applied patch supplied by Andy Belsey
	  <[email protected]>. With thanks for both the analysis of
	  the problem and the patch.

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2009-05-27  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_tty.c (Exp_SttyCmd, Exp_SystemCmd): Applied patch by
	  Reinhard Max ([email protected]) fixing buffer-overflows in the 'stty'
	  command due to an off-by-one error in the buffer size. See the
	  bugs https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=506873
	  and  https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501291

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2009-05-06  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* retoglob.c: Accepted the patch by Mike Cumings
	  <[email protected]> fixing [Expect SF Bug 13179].
	  The updated code checks a (?...) sequence that it contains only
	  ARE options before processing it as such. This prevents the
	  misinterpretation of non-capturing paren groups as ARe options
	  with subsequent segmentation fault.

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2008-09-30  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

	* exp_command.c (Exp_OverlayObjCmd): Fixed [Expect SF Bug 2127456]
	  reported by <[email protected]>, with thanks. Changed
	  retrieval of command from objv[0] (== 'overlay' itself), to
	  objv[i] containing the actual user command.

	* expect.c (string_case_first, string_first, eval_case_string):
	  Applied patch supplied by Andy Belsey <[email protected]>
	  fixing the seg.fault in 'expect -exact'. With thanks for both
	  the analysis of the problem and the patch. See also [Expect SF
	  Bug 2114547].

2008-08-28  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_trap.c (tophalf): Fixed inverted condition setting the
	  interpreter used for trap handling to NULL, causing a crash when
	  trying to handle ^C. This fixes [SF Bug 1757471] reported by
	  Matthias Kraft <[email protected]>.
	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2008-08-18  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* exp_main_sub.c (exp_interpreter): cleaner handling of commandPtr
	to prevent crash. (das)

2008-06-03  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_glob.c (Exp_StringCaseMatch2): Fixed bug in the handling of
	  glob classes, see [SF Bug 1873404]. The code tried to match the
	  closing bracket of a class in the input because it was not
	  properly skipped after the class was matched successfully.
	  Additional trace output added.
	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2008-05-05  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_pty.c: Minimal ansification of function definitions to match
	  them to their prototypes where promoted types are otherwise
	  causing a mismatch for some compilers, like AIX in 64bit mode.
	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

2008-04-03  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

	* The following set of changes was sent our way by Reinhard Max
	  <[email protected]>.

	* exp_command.c: Fixed more compiler warnings, and started
	* exp_command.h: to ansify the code base, beginning with
	* exp_inter.c: the introduction of proper function prototypes.
	* exp_main_exp.c:
	* exp_pty.h:
	* exp_tty.c:
	* exp_tty.h:
	* exp_win.c:
	* expect.c:
	* pty_termios.c:
	* retoglob.c:

2008-04-03  Andreas Kupries   <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regen'd, autoconf 2.59.

	* The following set of changes was sent our way by Reinhard Max
	  <[email protected]>.

	* configure.in: Fixed checking of stty on linux, do not restrict
	  to specific cpu's. Further try with stdin, and stdin redirected
	  to /dev/tty when determining if stdout is read.

	* testsuite/configure.in: Brought up to TEA 3.5.
	* testsuite/aclocal.m4: New file, to import the TEA definitions.

	* Dbg.c: Added missed CONST in declaration and definition of

	* exp_command.c: Fixed pointer aliasing trouble with
	  'Tcl_DetachPids', and added the missing initialization of the
	  command string in the 'overlay' command.

	* expect.c: Fixed missing initialization of 'simple_start' element
	  of 'ecase'.

	* exp_inter.c: Fixed bogus use of 'slen' in 'intMatch'. The
	  relevant string is Tcl_Unichar, not Utf.

	* Makefile.in: Replaced bogus INSTALL_ROOT with DESTDIR, and added
	  missing DESTDIR references to the target for the installation of
	  the manpages.

2008-02-27  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* expect.c: Fixed refcounting error when parsing a single expect
	* configure.in: argument into a list of patterns and
	* configure: actions. Updated the version number to
	* Dbg.c: Added missing 'return TCL_OK' to debugger_trap.

2007-12-13  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* exp_log.c (expStdoutLogU): correct which buf is output.

	* exp_command.c (Exp_SendLogObjCmd): fix '--' handling
	(Exp_SendObjCmd): fix '--' handling to expect last argument

2007-09-24  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_inter.c: Changed inclusion of tcl.h to tclInt.h to get the
	* expect.c: definition of TCL_REG_BOSONLY, which was moved to that
	  header in Tcl 8.5. Ditto for expect.c, for the macro
	  TclUtfToUniChar (was a function in 8.4). Expect now compiles
	  again for both Tcl 8.4 and 8.5.

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regenerated.

2007-09-19  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* retoglob.c (EMITC): Keep the characters '^' and '$' quoted as
	  well, we do not wish to invoke their special interpretation by
	  the Expect glob matcher.
	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regenerated.

2007-08-09  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* retoglob.c: We had ExpChopNested and ExpBackslash locally
	  ansified (prototypes) to avoid a compiler error on AIX (type
	  promotion trouble). This now integrated into the mainline
	  sources, conditional to AIX.

	* expect.c (Exp_TimestampObjCmd): Fixed argument processing broken
	  by objc,objv conversion. Tried to use command name as the
	  argument for -seconds. Also did not detect when one argument to
	  many was specified.

	* configure.in: Bumped version to
	* configure: Regenerated.

2007-07-17  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* expect.c: Circumvented problems with the C compiler by use of a
	  temporary variable to hold the unicode pointer of a glob
	  pattern. The computed pattern length given to
	  Exp_StringCaseMatch was bogus.

	* exp_glob.c: Added tracing of the glob matcher internals (Can be
	  enabled by define EXP_INTERNAL_TRACE_GLOB). Fixed bug in a guard
	  condition in the optimized handling of '*'. The bad condition
	  caused the code to miss possible matches at the beginning of the
	  input (first char).

	* tests/expect.test: Added tests which check the glob matcher and
	  RE gate keeping.

	* configure.in: Bumped to to separate this from the
	  regular 5.44.1 sources.
	* configure: Regenerated.

2007-07-12  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* expect.c: Found bugs mismanaging input and pattern in the
	* exp_glob.c: updated glob matcher. We cannot check for '\0'
	  anymore to find the end of the string, these are counted
	  arrays now. Rewritten to use sentinel pointers.

2007-07-11  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c: Converted the buffering system from UTF-8 in Tcl_Obj
	* exp_command.h: to UTF-16 C-array, to avoid the repeated conversion
	* expect.c: of the input from utf-8 to utf-16. Updated the glob
	* exp_glob.c: matching code to use the same tricks for speed which
	* exp_inter.c: are used by the Tcl core. Extended the regexp
	* exp_log.c: matching path with a glob matcher which uses a gate
	* exp_log.h: keeper glob pattern to weed out most non-candidates
	* retoglob.c (New file): in a speedy manner. Regexp matching now
	  has to be done only for the small number of candidates
	  identified by the gate keeper. Overall speed improvement as glob
	  matching is faster than regexp matching. Added code translating
	  regular expressions into their gate keeper glob pattern.

	* Dbg.c: Converted the lot of argc,argv based command
	* exp_command.c: implementations over to objc,objv.
	* expect.c:
	* exp_main_sub.c:

	* Dbg.c: Cleaned up the direct access to interp->result,
	* exp_command.c: replaced with the proper functions and
	* expect.c: Tcl_Obj's.
	* exp_main_exp.c:
	* exp_main_sub.c:
	* exp_main_tk.c:
	* exp_prog.h:
	* exp_trap.c:
	* exp_tty.c:
	* exp_win.c:
	* exp_win.h:

	* tests/cat.test: Added proper 'package require Expect'
	* tests/expect.test: to the test setup code (JeffH).
	* tests/logfile.test:
	* tests/pid.test:
	* tests/send.test:
	* tests/spawn.test:
	* tests/stty.test:

	* exp_command.c: Reformatted overlong lines, whitespace,
	* expect.c: comments. Added braces to some if-constructs.
	* exp_inter.c: Reworked if-constructs interleaved with
	* exp_tty.c: #if for better formatting in emacs.

	* Dbg.c: Added note about unhandled cases in a switch.
	* exp_chan.c: Added code to suppress unhandled warning for
	  unreachable code.
	* exp_command.c: Removed unused variable.
	* expect.c: Removed unused static function, added code to suppress
	  unhandled warning for unreachable code.

	* exp_command.c: Fixed typo in comment.

2007-06-28  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official version 5.44.1 of expect into
	  the SF sources. See the details below.

	  Marius Schamsula <[email protected]> reported tclconfig
	  missing, evidentally for new TEA.

	  Lots of massaging to fix TEAification of Makefile and configure
	  including that version numbers will now be full three part.

	  Daniel Wong <[email protected]> noted the home page
	  should note that Wikipedia has a very readable entry for Expect.

	  Andre Alves <[email protected]> noted passmass needed some
	  fixes to handle Solaris 9 passwd prompt changes.

	  Andreas fixed several things: changes to better support TEA, fix
	  debugger interaction with nonblocking mode, and probably other
	  things I'm overlooking.

	  Martin Dietze <[email protected]> noted that autoconf 2.59 is
	  confused by C comment after undefs in expect_cf.h.in.

	  Added additional code to unbuffer -p so that if a process
	  earlier in the pipeline exits, unbuffer attempts to recover any
	  remaining output from the spawned proc before unbuffer itself

	  Jeffrey Hobbs noted that once stty was called, a bg'd script
	  would be suspended at exit.  Turned out to be overaggressive
	  code in stty that recorded what 'damage' the user might have
	  caused when calling stty in the first place.

	  Jens Petersen provided patch to make setpgrp configure better on
	  some Linux systems.

	  Added example/getpassck script to test for getpass bug.

	  multixterm had debugging stuff leftover ("hello").

2006-02-27  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_main_sub.c: Added command 'exp_configure' for magic configuration.
	* exp_command.c:  Accepts option -strictwrite. Default is 0, ignoring
	* exp_chan.c:     write errors (compatible to 5.41). Setting to 1 re-
	* expect_tcl.h:   activates 5.42 behaviour.

2006-01-25  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* tclconfig/tcl.m4, configure: Fix LD_SEARCH_FLAGS setting in tcl.m4

	* example/unbuffer: whitespace police

	* example/beer.exp: brace exprs

	* expect.man: use clock instead of exec date, minor nroff fixes.

2006-01-24  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* tclconfig/tcl.m4: Updated to TEA 3.5
	* configure.in:     Ditto.
	* configure:        Regenerated.

2006-01-10  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* tests/expect.test: ensure iso8859-1 for /tmp/null (steffen).

2005-09-19  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c (ExpOutputProc): Added guard to intercept and ignore
	  empty write operations, i.e. operations trying to write zero

2005-09-09  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c (ExpBlockModeProc): No, stdin is not ok (See last
	  entry). Fixed.

2005-07-07  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c (ExpBlockModeProc): [Expect SF Bug 1108551]. Excluded
	  manipulation of the blocking status for stdin/stderr. This is
	  handled by the Tcl core itself and we must absolutely not pull
	  the rug out from under it. The standard setting to non-blocking
	  will mess with the core which had them set to blocking, and
	  makes all its decisions based on that assumption. Setting to
	  non-blocking can cause hangs and crashes. Stdin is ok however,

	  This problem was introduced at '2004-06-14'.

2005-06-22  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c:    Fixed bug causing crash of expect on exit when a
	* exp_command.c: Tcl channel is used with -(leave)open more than
	* exp_command.h: once. It tried to close such channels multiple
	  times, going through already freed memory. Added data structures
	  to track and refcount all such channels, to close them only when
	  the last user goes away.

2005-06-09  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in:  Upgraded build system to TEA 3.2.
	* configure.in:
	* config.guess:
	* config.sub
	* exp_main_sub.c:
	* aclocal.m4:

2005-03-29  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c: Fixed problem with debugger introduced at '2004-06-14'.
	* tcldbg.h:   For a nonblocking stdin the debugger blowed up on the
	* Dbg.c:      empty reads it could get, exiting the application. I
	              guess that this was an implicit 'panic'. Fix:

		      - Split ExpBlockmodeProc into high- and lowlevel
		        code, the latter for use by the debugger. The
		        high-level code tells the debugger which state
		        stdin is in (doing this explicitly because if
		        FIONBIO is used it is not possible to query the fd
		        directly, and I saw no reason to #ifdef for fcntl
		        which can).

		      - Debugger now exports a function for use by the
		        blockmode proc, and in each interaction it checks
		        for nonblocking input, forces blocking if
		        necessary. At the end of each interaction the true
		        mode is restored. Both operations use the
		        low-level blockmode code.

	* exp_tty.c (Exp_SttyCmd): fix from Libes that controlling
	terminal check example (book p372) by restricting set of
	exp_ioctled_devtty variable.

2005-02-15  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official versions 5.42.1 and 5.43.0 of
	  expect into the SF sources. See the details below.

	  Martin Forssen <[email protected]> fixed bug in ExpOutputProc
	  that caused misbehavior during partial writes.

	  Someone noted that gets stdin behaves differently (returns -1
	  immediately) from tclsh because with 5.42, stdin is unblocked by

	  Robroy Gregg <[email protected]> noted that expect_background
	  ignores timeouts.  Added to documentation.

	  Jens Peterson <[email protected]> provided patch for
	  "mkpasswd -vo".

	  Gary Bliesener <[email protected]> noted that
	  multixterm failed on his system which had an old Tk that didn't
	  support the Tk package.

	  Removed beta designation.

	  Daniel A. Steffen <[email protected]> provided patch for
	  MacOS to avoid panic-redefinition.

2005-01-21  Andreas Kupries <[email protected]>

	* exp_inter.c: Changed all uses of 'time(3)' to Tcl_GetTime. IOW
	* expect.c:    go through the abstract core API instead of
	               directly acessing OS time. This makes the code
	               dependent on Tcl 8.4, as Tcl_GetTime was not public
	               before. See TIP #73 for its introduction into the
	               public API. As for the reason behind _this_ change
	               see TIP #233. Our change here now causes Expect to
	               be automatically in sync with any virtualization
	               set up in the core.

2004-08-19  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c (ExpOutputProc): Added code posted by Don on
	  c.l.t. to handle interrupted system calls (EAGAIN).

2004-07-15  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official version 5.42b0 of expect into
	  the SF sources. See details below.

	  Alexander Doktorovich <[email protected]>
	  wanted to use Expect as a filter.  This is possible but 'too
	  hard'.  To make it easier, added close_on_eof command to control
	  whether expect/interact automatically close the channel on eof.
	  This should simplify/enable other scripts.

	  Kurt Heberlein <[email protected]> noted that Expect would
	  hang. Andreas tracked it down to a change in Tcl such that when
	  Tcl had data left in its buffers, it would check for more data
	  rather than returning what it had to Expect first.  If no data
	  was forthcoming then Tcl would hang because the pty driver runs
	  in blocked mode.  Recoded to use nonblocking mode.

	  Yi Luo <[email protected]> noted that multixterm xterms were
	  reporting the parent's X window ids (via the WINDOWID env
	  variable) instead of the new ones.

	  Dick Van Deun <[email protected]> noted that kibitz expects
	  to find write in /bin but it is in /usr/bin on Slackware.  Seems
	  safe to drop the prefix.

	  Steve Lee <[email protected]> noted that building Expect failed
	  on Linux when built from scratch because stty ends up in
	  /usr/local/bin rather than the assumed /bin.  Added code to
	  support this.

2004-06-14  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c: Integrated the block mode proc I got by mail from
	  Don Libes into the channel driver. This fixes an error with
	  expect hanging on some input if the situation is just
	  right^Hwrong. Basically if the buffers in driver, Tcl IO core
	  and Expect itself are aligned just so it can cause Expect to
	  block in all call to the OS for more data even if all the data
	  it needs is in ts buffers. Because the driver is blocking and
	  the Tcl core was told that it can run in non-blocking mode. with
	  the block mode proc in place the driver knows that it should be
	  non-blocking and is able to tell this to the OS as well. The
	  call to the OS still happens, but is not blocking anymore, and
	  so the problem is gone.

	  A number of incompat changes in the Tcl IO core to work around
	  this problem in Expect will be removed now.

2004-06-03  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* aclocal.m4 (TCLHDIRDASHI): Extended with path to unix headers as
	* expect_tcl.h: Added inclusion of <stdio.h>.
	  Both changes required for Expect to compile against Tcl 8.5
	  after the header reform.
	* configure: Regenerated.

2004-05-19  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official version 5.41 of expect into the
	  SF sources. See details below.

	  Simon Taylor <[email protected]> provided fix for interact
	  -o which was completely broken by 5.40.1.

	  Added scroll support to official tkterm.  Copied all fixes
	  from/to term_expect to/from tkterm.

	  Kiran Madabhushi <[email protected]> encountered interact
	  diagnostics incorrectly pointing to expect_background.  Also,
	  found multiple -o flags behaving unexpectedly.  Added diag.

	  Kristoffer Eriksson <[email protected]> noted typo in SIMPLE code in
	  exp_inter.c.  However, this is extremely unlikely to affect any

	  Reinhard Max <[email protected]> noted that "make test" failed when
	  run in the background.  The log testcase was testing the
	  send_tty command.  Added code in both Expect and in the test to
	  handle this.

2004-02-25  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official version 5.40 of expect into the
	  SF sources. See details below. Partially already done (Rich
	  Kennedy's patch).

	  Eric Raymond <[email protected]> provided troff-related
	  fixes for the expect, lib, and dislocate man pages.

	  Rich Kennedy <[email protected]> noted a bug having to do
	  with our caching of whether we have registered a filehandler.
	  This broke when Tcl was setting a handler on the same file.

	  Ken Pizzini <[email protected]> provided patch for
	  leak in spawn error handling.

	  Pete Lancashire <[email protected]> noted autopasswd
	  example broke on Solaris which capitalized prompts.

2003-10-20  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_event.c (exp_get_next_event): Applied a patch made by Don
	  Libes in response to a bug report posted to news:comp.lang.tcl
	  by Rich Kennedy <[email protected]>. Patch was posted to c.l.t

2003-09-05  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official version 5.39 of expect into the
	  SF sources. See details below. Partially already done.

	  Poorva Gupta <[email protected]> noted that grantpt/unlockpt
	  order was backward.  Strange that this was never a prob before!

	  Eric Raymond <[email protected]> provided a troff-related
	  fix for the multixterm man page.

	  Nicolas Roeser <[email protected]> noted confusion with md5 so I
	  made the Expect page more explicit about which file that hash
	  was based on.

	  Josh Purinton noted that earlier fix wasn't quite right.  Exit
	  on INT/TERM should cause Expect to exit with signal embedded in
	  status.  He also requested I obfuscate email addresses in this

	  Guido Ostkamp <[email protected]> and Igor Sobrado
	  <[email protected]> noted that fixline1
	  rewrote scripts to be expect scripts even if they were expectk

	  Dirk Petera <[email protected]> noted that any_spawn_id used
	  to work but did no longer.  Looks like a bug left over from the
	  the I18L conversion.  Fixed.

	  Steve Szabo noted exp_log_file -open channel failed.  Fixed.

	  Fixed bug from 5.31 that prevent stty from returning messages
	  from underlying program.

	  Thomas Dickey <[email protected]> noted that ncurses
	  ignores 2-char term names because of, well, poor assumptions and
	  coding.  Changed tkterm to use longer names.

	  Heath Moore <[email protected]> noted that exp_clib could lock
	  up if remtime happened to be precisely 0.  Recoded to avoid.

	  At request of Per Otterholm <[email protected]>, wrote script
	  to read from stdin and echo passwords (exercise 9 in Tk chapter
	  of Expect book).  Added to example directory as passwdprompt.

	  Josh Purinton <[email protected]> pointed out that by default,
	  SIGINT/TERM should cause expect's return status to be 1, not 0.

	  Paul Reithmuller <[email protected]> noted that
	  unbuffer shouldn't postprocess its output.  Added stty_init.

	  Mordechai T. Abzug <[email protected]> noted that
	  log_file wasn't recording -append status.

	  James Kelly <[email protected]> noted weather example
	  needed new source.

	  Dimitar Haralanov <[email protected]> noted that interact
	  dumped core with interact { timeout 1 }

2003-06-16  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_command.c: Applied patch provided on c.l.t., by Don Libes
	  <[email protected]> in response to a bug report by Dirk Petera
	  <[email protected]> in same place. See thread reference


2003-05-08  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_clib.c (expectv): Applied patch provided on c.l.t., by Don
	  Libes <[email protected]> in response to a bug report by "Heath

2003-02-17  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in:
	* configure.in: Removed the check of configure against
	  configure.in and Makefile.in. It is a hassle to deal with when
	  trying to build straight from CVS, making unsupervised automatic
	  builds difficult

2003-02-14  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in:   Made expect aware of tcl stubs. Derived from the
	* exp_command.h:  patches to expect done by Steve Landers
	* exp_command.c:  <[email protected]>. Modifications:
	* exp_main_sub.c  No global cmdinfo structures for 'close' and
	* exp_main_exp.c: 'return'. Made this per-interpreter information
	* exp_main_tk.c:  as it should be. Using interp assoc data for this.

	NOTE: stubs is not default, but has to be activated via '--enable-stubs'.

	* configure:      Regenerated.

2003-02-14  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_chan.c (exp_close_all): Save the nextPtr in a local variable
	  before calling 'exp_close' as 'expStateFree' can be called from
	  it under some circumstances, possibly causing the memory
	  allocator to smash the value in 'esPtr'.

2003-02-03  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_log.c (expLogChannelOpen): Fixed the bug reported on
	  comp.lang.tcl by Mordechai T. Abzug
	  <[email protected]>. The bugfix itself was provided
	  by Don Libes.

2002-10-09  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_command.c (Exp_SpawnCmd): Tcl_GetChannelHandle expected a
	  ClientData*, but got an int*. sizeof(int) != sizeof(ClientData)
	  on 64bit platforms. Crashed the command on a PA-RISC 2.0 machine
	  with --enable-64bit set. Fix: Use temp. variables of type
	  ClientData to retrieve the fd's, and copy this into the actual
	  variables, with a cast to int.

2002-09-25  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* configure: regen'ed
	* configure.in: use tcl_libdir in EXP_LIB_SPEC instead of
	${INSTALL_ROOT}${exec_prefix}/lib (steffen)

	* exp_main_tk.c (Tk_Init2): don't call XSynchronize on OS X.

2002-08-08  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from the official version 5.38 of expect into the
	  SF sources. See details below.

	* Makefile.in: Added generation of MD5 checksum for distributed
	* rftp:         Bugfix by Curt Schroeder, see HISTORY
	* HISTORY:      Updated with new info.
	* configure:    Updated version info.
	* configure.in: Updated version info.

2002-06-26  David Gravereaux <[email protected]>

	* example/weather: Updated script to use rainmaker.wunderground.com
	instead of cirrus.sprl.umich.edu.  The old service is closed.
	Added Larry Virden's notes about how rainmaker needs reverse DNS
	from the peer making the connection or no data can retrieved.
	This appears to be a blind error condition.

2002-06-17  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_main_tk.c: #ifdef'd definition of "matherr". This hack is
	  not required for 8.4 anymore. But still for 8.3.

2002-03-25  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_main_sub.c: Fixed typo in merge of #459646. Thanks to Hemang Lavana.

 	* exp_log.c (expStdoutLogU): Merged fix for SF Bug #513382 into
	  the HEAD (The source of the patch is "expect-sf418892-sf439042-branch").

	  Use Tcl_WriteChars/Tcl_Flush instead of 'fwrite' for tcl 8.1 and
	  beyond to enforce correct conversion of the internal UTF/8 into
	  the external representation.

	* Merged fix for SF Bug #459646 into the HEAD (The source of the
	  patch is "expect-sf418892-sf439042-branch").

	* Merged fix for SF Bug #439042 into the HEAD (The source of the
	  patch is "expect-sf418892-sf439042-branch").

2002-03-23  Don Libes  <[email protected]>

	* Andreas Kupries mods to provide CONST support per TIP 27 (Fixed
	  SF Patch #525074).

2002-02-25  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* expect.c: Applied patch by Don Libes fixing improper

2002-02-21  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* expect.man: Changed the paragraph about [exp_continue] to
	  contain information about the flag "-continue_timer". This fixes
	  the bug SF #520630.

2002-02-08  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* expect.man: Changed abbreviation of "-notransfer" from "-n" to
	  "-not". "-n" is no longer unique due to the addition of
	  "-nocase". This fixes the bug SF #514994.

2002-02-07  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Applied patch for SF #514590 to correct behaviour of expect when
	  expecting and send from and to bogus spawn id's.

2002-01-16  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* Resynchronization of SourceForge with Don's sources to Expect
	  version 5.34. The changes are

	  Don Porter <[email protected]> provided package-related fixes
	  for test suite.

	  Brian Theado <[email protected]> noted that interact's -re
	  support broke when offsets kicked in.  Turned out that the
	  regexp engine supports them during execution but the results are
	  delivered RELATIVE to the offset.  (I suspect this was done
	  due to expediency.)

2001-12-05  Andreas Kupries  <[email protected]>

	* exp_inter.c: Applied patch posted by Don libes to c.l.t. on his
	  behalf to keep the SF repository in sync with his changes. Don's
	  notes: I obviously missed the fact that although
	  "Tcl_RegExpExecObj" supports offsets, they aren't delivered to

2001-09-12  David Gravereaux <[email protected]>

	* 'telco-tec-win32-branch' branch created.

2001-08-01  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* Dbg.c (Dbg_On): fixed handling of stepping. [Bug: #446412]

2000-04-26  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* pty_termios.h: Only include stropts.h if it exists, rather than
	deciding it exists based on HAVE_PTMX.
	* configure.in: Make sure libpt exists, rather than blindly using
	it for all our configure tests, which then all fail. Also assume
	our svr4 style ptys are broken, if /dev/ptmx exists, but stropts.h
	doesn't exist.

1999-08-31  Jennifer Hom  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in: Changed test target to source tests/all.tcl instead
	of tests/all

	* tests/README: Modified documentation to reflect the change from
	usage of a defs file to the use of package tcltest to run the tests

	* tests/all:
	* tests/defs:
	* tests/all.tcl:
	* tests/cat.test:
	* tests/expect.test:
	* tests/logfile.test:
	* tests/pid.test:
	* tests/send.test:
	* tests/spawn.test
	* tests/stty.test: Modified test files to use package tcltest,
	removed tests/all and tests/defs, and added tests/all.tcl

1999-06-22    <[email protected]>

	* expect.c: Fixed bug in token parsing where index was not being
	incremented properly.

	* configure.in: Changed version number to 5.31.

	* aclocal.m4: Fixed CY_AC_LOAD_TKCONFIG so it tests for Tk_Init
	instead of Tk_Main (which is only a macro in 8.1 and later).  Also
	added TCL_BUILD_LIB_SPEC to the set of flags used in this test to
	avoid linker errors.

	* Dbgconfig.in: move CY_*_TCLCONFIG tests below AC_PROG_CC so it
	will work with gcc

Thu Mar 20 14:27:45 1997  Geoffrey Noer  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: don't check if stty reads stdout for
	i[[3456]]86-*-sysv4.2MP during config; hard code instead

Tue Nov 19 09:22:08 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in (install_shared_lib): Put else clause onto each if.

Fri Nov 15 11:23:43 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in (XCFLAGS): Use EXP_SHLIB_CFLAGS, not

	Added missing AC_MSG_CHECKING.

Wed Oct  2 10:13:37 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* configure: Regenerated.
	* configure.in (stty_reads_stdout): /bin/stty on DG/UX fails.

Fri Sep 27 10:15:48 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* expect.c (exp_i_read): Pass interp as first arg to exp_error.
	* configure.in (stty_reads_stdout): /bin/stty on OSF2.0, OSF3.2,
	HPUX 9.X, HPUX 10.X guesses wrong, so set value explicitly.

Mon Sep  9 10:29:32 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* configure: Regenerated.
	* configure.in: Added code to actually handle --with-x.

	* configure: Regenerated.
	* configure.in: Don't bother looking for Tk if --with-x=no

Thu Sep  5 11:01:09 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* configure: Regenerated.
	* configure.in (stty_reads_stdout): AIX fails "stty" test in
	background, so set explicitly.  Ditto HPUX 9 and 10.

Thu Aug 29 17:04:55 1996  Michael Meissner  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in (i[345]86-*-*): Recognize i686 for pentium pro.
	* configure: Regenerate.

Mon Aug  5 12:55:06 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in (XCFLAGS): New macro.
	(CFLAGS): Define to just @[email protected]
	(expect, expect_installed, expect.tc, expectk, expectk_installed,
	expectk.tc): Use $(XCFLAGS).

Mon Feb 12 23:11:38 1996  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* aclocal.m4: Fix typo of ac_cv_tkh to be ac_cv_tclh so it works
	on all systems.
	* configure, DBGconfigure, testsuite/configure: Regenerated with
	autoconf 2.7.

Tue Feb  6 11:48:05 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* exp_clib.c, exp_printify.c, expect_comm.h: For Tcl 7.5 and
	greater, use ../compat/stdlib.h, not compat/stdlib.h.

Tue Jan 30 12:21:37 1996  Fred Fish  <[email protected]>

	* exp_regexp.c (regmatch, regrepeat): Only declare strchr if it is not
 	a macro.

Mon Jan 22 11:17:06 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Check for -lieee, -ldl, and -ldld.

	* configure.in: Test for strerror.

Fri Jan 19 11:08:11 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in (install, ${SCRIPT_LIST}, test): Find new Tcl libraries.

Thu Jan 18 13:43:13 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

Thu Jan 11 09:43:14 1996  Tom Tromey  <[email protected]>

	* exp_closetcl.c (exp_close_files_interp): New variable for Tcl
	(exp_close_tcl_files): Updated for Tcl 7.5.

	Prototype and varargs changes:
	* expect.c: Don't include <varargs.h>.
	* Dbg.c: Copied in many defines from expect_comm.h.

	* expect_comm.h: Include "tclInt.h".
	* exp_console.c (exp_console_manipulation_failed): First arg to
	errorlog is char*, not FILE*.
	* exp_log.c (debuglog): Pass name of last argument to
	* expect_cf.h.in (tcl_AsyncReady): Removed define.

	* exp_command.c (exp_i_update): First arg to exp_debuglog is
	* exp_poll.c (exp_get_next_event): Likewise.
	char*, not Tcl_Interp*.
	* exp_log.h: Use prototypes everywhere.  Include "expect_comm.h".
	* expect_tcl.h: Use EXP_VARARGS, not VARARGS.
	(tcl_AsyncReady): New define for Tcl 7.5.

	* aclocal.m4 (CY_AC_PATH_TCLH): Handle Tcl 7.5 and greater.
	(CY_AC_PATH_TCLLIB): Handle Tcl 7.5 and greater.
	(CY_AC_PATH_TKH): Handle Tk 4.1 and greater.
	(CY_AC_PATH_TKLIB): Handle Tk 4.1 and greater.  Properly quote
	argument to AC_REQUIRE.
	* configure: Regenerated.

Tue Jan  9 16:26:47 1996  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in: Change SHORT_BINDIR to $prefix, rather than
	exec_prefix. This is only used to store the platform independant
	expect scripts.

Dec 18 17:22:05 1995  Brendan Kehoe  <[email protected]>

        * configure.in, configure: For a solaris2 machine doing a static
        build, add `-ldl -lw' to avoid unresolved refs using the
        OpenWindows libraries.

Wed Nov 22 08:49:01 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* Most files: Update to expect 5.18.1.

Fri Nov 17 17:31:55 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Add support for SCO OpenServer. It doesn't like
	the trap either.

Thu Nov 16 09:28:53 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Use $host to get the OS type rather than trying to
	get the host name ourselves. Use the $host to set the
	STTY_READS_STDOUT for hosts were the test is known to fail. It
	also now configures in the background.
	* configure.in, Dbgconfig.in, testsuite/configure.in: Use
	AC_PROG_CC again since Cygnus configure now does the sames thing.

Mon Oct 30 18:16:48 1995  Jason Molenda  ([email protected])

	* configure.in (no_tk): zero out X_PROGS if we can't find tk

Tue Oct 24 18:25:09 1995  Jason Molenda  ([email protected])

	* Makefile.in (X11HDIR): Changed to X11_CFLAGS.
	(X11_LIB_FLAGS): Changed to X11_LDFLAGS.
	(X11_LIB): Changed to X11_LIBS.
	(expectk, expectk.tc, tk): use X11_LDFLAGS & X11_LIBS.

	* configure.in (X11HDIR, X11_LIB_FLAGS, X11_LIB): Use X11_CFLAGS,
	X11_LDFLAGS, X11_LIBS.  Link X11 statically on Solaris, SunOS and

Thu Oct 19 20:55:54 1995  Fred Fish  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in: Remove extraneous tabs and blanks in otherwise
	empty lines.  That confuses older non-GNU versions of "make".

Mon Oct  9 20:58:50 1995  Jason Molenda  ([email protected])

	* testsuite/aclocal.m4: New file.  Include ../aclocal.m4.

Thu Aug 31 00:16:26 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* HISTORY, Makefile.in, aclocal.m4, exp_command.h, exp_inter.c,
	exp_main_tk.c, exp_pty.c, expect.c, tests/all,
	testsuite/Makefile.in. Update to the 5.18.0 release. Minor

Thu Aug 17 18:47:21 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* Most files: Update to the 5.17.7 release.

Thu Aug  3 22:47:36 1995  Jeff Law  ([email protected])

	* pty_termios.c (HAVE_PTMX): Undefine if both HAVE_PTYM and
	HAVE_PTMX are defined (as happens for hpux10).

Thu Jul 27 16:31:23 1995  J.T. Conklin  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in (configure): Removed rule that automatically
	rebuilds configure script.  Users might not have autoconf.

Tue Jul 18 23:15:03 1995  Fred Fish  <[email protected]>

	* expect.c (Exp_ExpectGlobalCmd):  Cast ckrealloc first arg to char*.

Sun Jun 18 13:02:41 1995  Fred Fish  <[email protected]>

	* configure, configure.in (XLIBS):  When adding -lX11, also preserve
	the previous libraries that we went to the trouble of finding.

Sun Jun 18 12:15:44 1995  Fred Fish  <[email protected]>

	* Makefile.in (exp_clib.o): Add dependencies.

Mon May  1 16:50:22 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Also set XINCLUDES in the Makefile.

Fri Apr 28 18:56:02 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* aclocal.m4: Create a clone of AC_C_CROSS called CY_C_CROSS that
	has better error handling in case the native compiler is hosed.
	* aclocal.m4: Look for tcl and tk directories as just tcl (and tk)
	or tcl[0-9] (and tk[0-9)] so it doesn't match the tclX
	release. Print an error and exit if any of the --with-{tcl,tk}*
	options are used and point to bogus paths. Based Tcl header search
	on tclInt./h rather than tcl.h.
	* Makefile.in: Add dependancies for back in for configure and
	Dbgconfigure targets.

Mon Apr 24 16:46:01 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* exp_command.c, exp_event.h, exp_inter.c, exp_main_tk.c,
	exp_poll.c, exp_select.c, exp_simple.c, exp_tk.c, exp_trap.c,
	exp_tty.c, FAQ, README, HISTORY: Update to expect 5.16.3.

Fri Apr 14 12:00:39 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Copy Dbg_cf.h to objdir, not srcdir.

Tue Apr 11 18:52:24 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* aclocal.m4: Split the macros so header and library searches are
	seperate macros. AC_PATH_{TCL,TK} nows only calls the macros. Lots
	of optimization to the AC_PATH_T* macros. Supports the use of
	--with-tclinclude, --with-tcllib, --with-tkinclude, --with-tklib
	to specify alternative search dirs for tcl and tk stuff.
	* Makefile.in, testsuite/Makefile.in: Re-write targets for
	configure, Dbgconfigure so they work in an unconfigured srcdir.
	* configure.in: Put AC_PATH_X before AC_PATH_TK and make the TK
	test conditional. Fix how Dbgconfigure gets passed the Tcl header
	dir to use --with-PACKAGE which is much simpler. Removed the test
	for user override of X search paths since AC_PATH_X uses.
	--x-includes and --x-libraries instead.
	* Dbgconfig.in: Use AC_PATH_TCLH to find just the headers, and
	test for LynxOS.
	* debugger/: Remove directory. Recursive configuring is so much
	* DbgMkfl.in, Dbg_cf.h.in, Dbg.c, Dbg.h, Dbgconfigure,
	Dbgconfig.in: Sigh, moved back to the top-level expect directory.

Wed Apr  5 17:25:45 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* configure.in: Add a trap so the configure runs in the

Thu Mar 16 16:56:08 1995  Rob Savoye  <[email protected]>

	* debugger: New directory for the Tcl debugger.
	* debugger/Dbg.c, debugger/Dbg.h, debugger/Dbg_cf.h.in: Moved from
	the top level expect directory so it builds standalone.
	* DbgMkfl.in, debugger/Makefile.in: Moved to debugger dir and
	* install-sh, mkinstalldirs: New files borrowed from the autoconf
	* aclocal.m4: New autoconf macros.
	* Makefile.in: Tweaked so it's recursive.
	* configure.in: Use new macros in aclocal.m4 rather than hunting
	for the Tcl and Tk stuff ourseleves.
	* debugger/Makefile.in: Build debugger standalone.
	* testsuite/Makefile.in, testsuite/configure.in: New files for
	autoconf support.
	* exp_test.c, testsuite/exp_test.c: Move test file.

Fri Jan 13 15:30:30 1995  Ian Lance Taylor  <[email protected]>

Wed May 18 12:21:06 1994  Ian Lance Taylor  ([email protected])

	* Makefile.in (install): Add another ``else true''.

Fri Apr 29 16:49:36 1994  Ian Lance Taylor  ([email protected])

	* Makefile.in (install): Always use else in if conditional to
	avoid Ultrix sh bug.

	using ptmx_bsd's if they exist. Only found on OSF/1. (patch
	applied from Gregory Depp <[email protected]>

Thu Jun 10 11:36:09 1993  david d `zoo' zuhn  (zoo at cirdan.cygnus.com)

	* exp_main.h: fix prototype for exp_cook

Fri Jun  4 08:55:22 1993  Ian Lance Taylor  ([email protected])

	* Makefile.in (TCLLIB): If ../tcl/libtcl.a does not exist, use

Tue May 25 14:45:12 1993  Rob Savoye  ([email protected])

	* Makefile.in, configure.in: Add some support for autoconfiguring
	for X.

Sun May 23 22:32:09 1993  Rob Savoye  (rob at darkstar.cygnus.com)

	* exp_command.c: Fix so send_log still works when master is out of
	bounds. (ok since it doesn't get used).

Mon May 17 19:51:52 1993  Rob Savoye  ([email protected])

	* configure.in: Change test for ranlib so it kicks out "true"
	rather than "@:" if it can't be found.

Thu Apr 15 14:11:50 1993  Rob Savoye  ([email protected])

	* configure.in, Makefile.in: If using ptmx's (SVR4 style pty's)
	then check for libpt.a too.

Thu Apr  8 17:13:39 1993  david d `zoo' zuhn  (zoo at cirdan.cygnus.com)

	* Makefile.in: all doesn't depend on $(SCRIPTS).  When building
	$(SCRIPTS) using fixline & sources in $(srcdir), not the current
	directory.  When installing manpages, install from $(srcdir).
	Don't install like "install foo $(bindir)" but rather "install foo

Mon Mar 22 23:56:29 1993  david d `zoo' zuhn  (zoo at cirdan.cygnus.com)

	* configure.in, configure: declare SETUID to be @: instead of echo

	* pty_termios.c: declare ptynum

	* Makefile.in: a number of changes, including use of the AR and
	ARFLAGS variables, the appropriate variables for X11 (as passed

Mon Mar  1 15:05:40 1993  Rob Savoye  (rob at darkstar.cygnus.com)

	* configure.in, defs.h.in: Fixed problem for systems that think
	getpty() should be _getpty().

Thu Feb 25 15:34:34 1993  Rob Savoye  (rob at darkstar.cygnus.com)

	* exp_tty.h: Defines portable tty macros.
	* pty_termios.c: New file, slightly based on pty_usg.c. Uses

	* Makefile.in: added dummy dvi target

Wed Dec 16 11:26:16 1992  Ian Lance Taylor  ([email protected])

	to get maxfds, rather than getdtablesize.
	* configure.in (*-*-sco*): Use mh-sco.
	* mh-sco: New file; like mh-sysv, but pass -DSCO in HDEFS.

Tue Nov 17 14:28:20 1992  david d `zoo' zuhn  (zoo at cirdan.cygnus.com)

	* config/mh-{hpux,aix,irix4,sysv*}: updated with appropriate
	values for the host machine (HDEFS, RANLIB, etc)
