1999-12-12  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* doc/glob.n:
	* tests/fileName.test:
	* generic/tclInt.decls:
	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
	* generic/tclEncoding.c:
	* generic/tclFileName.c:
	* mac/tclMacFile.c:
	* unix/tclUnixFile.c:
	* win/tclWinFile.c: enhanced the glob command with the new options
	-types -path -directory and -join. Deprecated TclpMatchFiles with
	TclpMatchFilesTypes, extended TclGlob and TclDoGlob and added
	GlobTypeData structure. [Bug 2363]

1999-12-10  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* tests/var.test:
	* generic/tclCompile.c: fixed problem where setting to {} array would
	intermittently not work. [Bug 3339] (Fontaine)

	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:
	* generic/tclExecute.c: optimized INST_TRY_CVT_TO_NUMERIC to recognize
	boolean objects. [Bug 2815] (Spjuth)

	* tests/info.test:
	* tests/parseOld.test:
	* generic/tclCmdAH.c:
	* generic/tclProc.c: changed Tcl_UplevelObjCmd (uplevel) and
	Tcl_EvalObjCmd (eval) to use TCL_EVAL_DIRECT in the single arg case as
	well, to take advantage of potential pure list input optimization.
	This means that it won't get byte compiled though, which should be
	* generic/tclBasic.c: made Tcl_EvalObjEx pure list object aware in the
	TCL_EVAL_DIRECT case for efficiency.
	* generic/tclUtil.c: made Tcl_ConcatObj pure list object aware, and
	return a list object in that case [Bug 2098 2257]

	* generic/tclMain.c: changed Tcl_Main to not constantly reuse the
	commandPtr object (interactive case) as it could be shared. (Fellows)

	* unix/
	* unix/tcl.m4:
	* unix/tclUnixPipe.c: removed checking for compatible vfork function
	and use of the vfork function. Modern VM systems rarely suffer any
	performance degradation when fork is used, and it solves multiple
	problems with vfork. Users that still want vfork can add -Dfork=vfork
	to the compile flags. [Bug 942 2228 1312]

1999-12-09  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinFCmd.c:
	* win/tclWinInit.c:
	* win/tclWinPipe.c:
	* win/tclWinSock.c: removed all code that supported Win32s. It was no
	longer officially supported, and likely didn't work anyway.
	* win/ removed 16 bit stuff, cleaned up.

	* win/tcl16.rc:
	* win/tclWin16.c:
	* win/winDumpExts.c: these files have been removed from the source
	tree (no longer necessary to build)

1999-12-07  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* tests/io.test: removed 'knownBug' tests that were for unsupported0,
	which is now fcopy (that already has tests)

	* mac/tclMacPort.h: added utime.h include

	* generic/tclDate.c:
	* unix/ fixed make gendate to swap const with CONST so it
	uses the Tcl defined CONST type [Bug 3521]

	* generic/tclIO.c: removed panic that could occur in FlushChannel when
	a "blocking" channel would receive EAGAIN, instead treating it the
	same as non-blocking. [Bug 3773]

	* generic/tclUtil.c: fixed Tcl_ScanCountedElement to not step beyond
	the end of the counted string. [Bug 3336]

1999-12-03  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* doc/load.n: added note about NT's buggy handling of './' with

	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: fixed error handling in http::Event. [Bug

	* tests/env.test: removed knownBug limitation from working test
	* tests/all.tcl: ensured that ::tcltest::testsDirectory would be set
	to an absolute path

	* tests/expr-old.test:
	* tests/parseExpr.test:
	* tests/string.test:
	* generic/tclGet.c:
	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclObj.c:
	* generic/tclParseExpr.c:
	* generic/tclUtil.c:
	* generic/tclExecute.c: added TclCheckBadOctal routine to enhance
	error message checking for when users use invalid octal numbers (like
	08), as well as replumbed the Expr*Funcs with a new VerifyExprObjType
	to simplify type handling. [Bug 2467]

	* tests/expr.test:
	* generic/tclCompile.c: fixed 'bad code length' error for 'expr +
	{[incr]}' case, with new test case [Bug 3736] and seg fault on 'expr
	+ {[error]}' (different cause) that was caused by a correct
	optimization that didn't correctly track how it was modifying the
	source string in the opt. The optimization was removed, which means
		expr 1 + {[string length abc]}
	will be not be compiled inline as before, but this should be written:
		expr {1 + [string length abc]}
	which will be compiled inline for speed. This prevents:
		expr 1 + {[mindless error]}
	from seg faulting, and only affects optimizations for degenerate cases
	[Bug 3737]

1999-12-01  Scott Redman <[email protected]>

	* generic/tcl.decls:
	* generic/tclMain.c:
	* unix/tclAppInit.c:
	* win/tclAppInit.c: Added two new internal functions,
	TclSetStartupScriptFileName() and TclGetStartupScriptFileName() and
	added hooks into the main() code for supporting TclPro and other "big"
	shells more easily without requiring a copy of the main() code.

	tclEvent.c into the more appropriate tclEncoding.c.

1999-11-30  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclIO.c: fix from Kupries for	Tcl_UnstackChannel that
	correctly handles resetting translation and encoding.

	* generic/tclLoad.c: #def'd out the unloading of DLLs at finalize time
	for Unix in TclFinalizeLoad. [Bug 2560 3373] Should be parametrized
	to allow for user to specify unload or not.

	* win/tclWinTime.c: fixed handling of %Z on NT for time zones that
	don't have DST.

1999-11-29  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

	* unix/tcl.m4: added defined for _THREAD_SAFE in --enable-threads
	case; added check for pthread_mutex_init in libc; in AIX case, with
	--enable-threads ${CC}_r is used; fixed flags when using gcc on SCO

	* generic/tclProc.c: corrected error reporting for default case at the
	global level for uplevel command.

	* generic/tclIOSock.c: changed int to size_t type for len in

	* generic/tclCkalloc.c: fixed Tcl_DbCkfree to return a value on NULL

	* doc/tcltest.n: fixed minor example errors. [Bug 3551]

1999-11-17 Brent Welch <[email protected]>

	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Correctly fixed the -timeout problem
	mentioned in the 10-29 change. Also added error handling for failed
	writes on the socket during the protocol.

1999-11-09  Jeff Hobbs  <[email protected]>

1999-10-29  Brent Welch <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclInt.h: Modified the TclNewObj and TclDecrRefCount in two
	ways. First, in the case of TCL_THREADS, we do not use the special
	Tcl_Obj allocator because that is a source of lock contention. Second,
	general code cleanup to eliminate duplicated code. In particular,
	TclDecrRefCount now uses TclFreeObj instead of duplicating that code,
	so it is now identical to Tcl_DecrRefCount.

	* generic/tclObj.c: Changed Tcl_NewObj so it uses the TclNewObj macro
	instead of duplicating the code. Adjusted TclFreeObj so it understands
	the TCL_THREADS case described above.

	* library/http2.1/http.tcl: Fixed a bug in the handling of the
	state(status) variable when the -timeout flag is specified. Previously
	it was possible to leave the status undefined instead of empty, which
	caused errors in http::status

1999-10-19  Jennifer Hom  <[email protected]>

	* tests/tcltest.test:
	* doc/tcltest.n:
	* library/tcltest1.0/tcltest.tcl: Removed the extra return at the end
	of the tcltest.tcl file, added version information about tcl.

	Applied patches sent in by Andreas Kupries to add helper procs for
	debug output, add 3 new flags (-testsdir, -load, -loadfile), and
	internally refactors common code for dealing with paths into separate
	procedures. [Bug 2838, 2842]

	Merged code from core-8-2-1 branch that changes the checks for the
	value of tcl_interactive to also incorporate a check for the existence
	of the variable.

	* tests/autoMkindex.test:
	* tests/pkgMkIndex.test: Explicitly cd to ::tcltest::testsDirectory at
	the beginning of the test run

	* tests/basic.test: Use version information defined in tcltest instead
	of hardcoded version number

	* tests/unixNotfy.test: Added explicit exits needed to avoid problems
	when the tests area run in wish.

	* win/tclWinSerial.c: New implementation of serial port driver from
	Rolf Shroedter ([email protected]) that allows more than one byte
	to be read from the port. Implemented using polling instead of
	threads, there is a max. 10ms latency between checking the port for
	file events. [Bug 1980 2217]

1999-07-06  Brent Welch  <[email protected]>

1999-07-03  Brent Welch  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclParse.c: Changed parsing of variable names to allow empty
	array names. Now "$(foo)" is a variable reference! Previous you had to

	Expect. This is a preliminary implementation pending final review and

	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:
	* tests/string.test: Fixed bug where string map failed on null strings

	* generic/regexec.c:
	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c: lint

	* tools/genStubs.tcl: Changed to always write output in LF mode.

1999-06-08  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinSock.c: Rolled back to the 8.1.0 implementation because of
	serious problems with the new driver. Basically no incoming socket
	connections would be reported to a server port. The 8.1.1 code needs
	to be redesigned and fixed correctly.

1999-06-07  Melissa Hirschl  <[email protected]>

	* tests/string.test:
	* generic/tclVar.c (Tcl_SetVar2Ex):
	* generic/tclStringObj.c (Tcl_AppendObjToObj):
	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): optimized the string index,
	string length, string range, and append command in cases where the
	object's internal rep is a bytearray. Objects with other internal reps
	are converted to have the new unicode internal rep.

	* unix/
	* win/
	* win/
	* tests/unicode.test:
	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclObj.c:
	* generic/tclUnicodeObj.c: added a new object type to store the
	unicode representation of a string.

	* generic/tclTestObj.c: added the objtype option to the testobj
	command. This option returns the name of the type of internal rep an
	object has.

1999-06-04  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/
	* win/ Windows build now handles static/dynamic
	debug/nodebug builds and supports the standard targets using Cygwin
	user tools plus GNU make and autoconf.

1999-06-03  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd):

	string could match with additional input. [Bug 2117]

1999-05-28  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclObj.c: Changed to eliminate use of isupper/tolower in
	favor of the Unicode versions.

	* win/
	* win/ Added preliminary TEA implementation.

	* win/tclWinDde.c: Fixed bug where dde calls were being passed an
	invalid dde handle because Initialize had not been called. [Bug 2124]

1999-05-26  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclThreadTest.c: Fixed race condition in testthread code
	that showed up in the WinNT test suite intermittently.

	* win/tclWinSock.c: Fixed a hang in the WinNT socket driver, wake up
	the socket thread every 100ms to check for events on the sockets that
	did not wake up the thread (race condition).

1999-05-24  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	lint to try to get the Mac builds working.

1999-05-21  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinPipe.c: Fix bug when launching on Win95/98.
	Need to wait for the procInfo.hProcess of the process that was
	created, not the hProcess of the current process. [Bug 2105]

1999-05-20  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* library/init.tcl: Add the directory where the executable is, and the
	../lib directory relative to that, to the auto_path variable.

1999-05-19  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	Merged in various changes submitted by Jeff Hobbs:

	* generic/tcl.decls:
	* generic/tclUtf.c: Added Tcl_UniCharIs* functions for control, graph,
	print, and punct classes.

	* generic/tclUtil.c:
	* doc/StrMatch.3: Added Tcl_StringCaseMatch() implementation to
	support case-insensitive globbing.

	* doc/string.n:
	* unix/mkLinks:
	* tests/string.test:
	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c: Added additional character class tests, added
	-nocase switch to "string match", changed string first/last to use

1999-05-19  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tcl.h: Add extern "C" block around entire header file for
	C++ compilers to fix linkage issues. Submitted by Don Porter and Paul

	* generic/tclRegexp.c: Fix bug when the regexp cache is empty and an
	empty pattern is used in regexp ( such as {} or "" ).

1999-05-18  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinChan.c: Modified initialization code to avoid inherenting
	closed or invalid channels. If the standard input is anything other
	than a console, file, serial port, or pipe, then we fall back to the
	standard Tk window console.

1999-05-14  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclCmdAH.c (Tcl_ForObjCmd): Fixed crash caused by failure to
	reset the result before evaluating the test expression.

1999-05-14  Bryan Surles  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclBasic.c (Tcl_CreateInterp): Added introspection variable
	for threaded interps. If the interp was compiled with threads enabled,
	the tcl_platform(threaded) variable will exist.

1999-05-14  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclDate.c: Applied patch to fix 100-year and 400-year
	boundaries in leap year code, from Isaac Hollander. [Bug 2066]

1999-05-13  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* unix/
	* unix/tclAppInit.c: Minor cleanup related to Xt notifier.

	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpSetInitialEncodings): Tcl now looks for an
	encoding subfield in the LANG/LC_ALL variables in cases where the
	locale is not found in the locale table. Ensure that setlocale() is
	called at least once so X11 will initialize properly. Also, forces the
	LC_NUMERIC locale to be "C" so numeric processing in scripts is not
	affected by the current locale setting. [Bug 1989]

	* generic/tclRegexp.c: Increased per-thread regexp cache to 30 slots.
	This seems to be about the right number for larger applications like
	exmh. [Bug 1063]

1999-05-12  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* doc/tclsh.1: Updated references to rc script names to accurately
	reflect the platform differences on Windows.

	* tests/regexp.test:
	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclBasic.c:
	* generic/tclRegexp.h:
	* generic/tclRegexp.c: Replaced the per-interpreter regexp cache with
	a per-thread cache. Changed the Regexp object to take advantage of
	this extra cache. Added a reference count to the TclRegexp type so
	regexps can be shared by multiple objects. Removed the per-interp
	regexp cache from the interpreter. Now regexps can be used with no
	need for an interpreter. [Bug 1063]

	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpSetVariables): Avoid calling GetUserName if
	the value can be determined from the USERNAME environment variable.
	GetUserName is very slow.

1999-05-07  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/winDumpExts.c:
	* win/ Removed incorrect patch. [Bug 1998]

	* generic/tcl.decls: Replaced const with CONST.

	* generic/tclResult.c (Tcl_AppendResultVA):
	* generic/tclStringObj.c (Tcl_AppendStringsToObjVA): Fixed to copy
	arglist using memcpy instead of assignment so it works properly on
	OS/390. [Bug 1997]

	* generic/tclLoadNone.c: Updated to use current interfaces, added
	TclpUnloadFile. [Bug 2003]

	* win/winDumpExts.c:
	* win/ Changed to emit library name in defs file. [Bug

	* unix/ Added fix for OS/390. [Bug 1976]

1999-05-06  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tests/string.test:
	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c:
	* doc/string.n: Fixed bug in string equal/compare code when using
	-length option. Cleaned up docs a bit more.

	* tests/http.test: Unset "data" array before running tests to avoid
	failures due to previous tests.

	* doc/string.n:

	* tests/cmdIL.test:
	* generic/tclUtil.c:
	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c: Replaced "string icompare/iequal" with -nocase
	and -length switches to "string compare/equal". Added a -nocase option
	to "string map". Changed index syntax to allow integer or
	end?-integer? instead of a full expression. This is much simpler with
	safeTcl scripts since it avoids double substitution issues.

	* doc/Utf.3:
	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
	* generic/tclDecls.h:
	* generic/tclUtf.c:
	* generic/tcl.decls: Added Tcl_UtfNcmp and Tcl_UtfNcasecmp.

1999-05-05  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/ Added encoding directory to install-libraries

1999-05-03  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* doc/string.n:
	* tests/cmdMZ.test:
	* tests/string.test:
	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): Changed "string length" to
	avoid regenerating the string rep of a ByteArray object.

	* tests/cmdIL.test:
	* tests/cmdMZ.test:
	* tests/error.test:
	* tests/lindex.test:
	* tests/linsert.test:
	* tests/lrange.test:
	* tests/lreplace.test:
	* tests/string.test:
	* generic/tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd):
	* generic/tclUtil.c (TclGetIntForIndex): Applied Jeff Hobbs's string
	patch which includes the following changes [Bug 1845]:
	- string compare now takes optional length arg (for strncmp behavior)
	- added string equal (just a few lines of code blended in with string
	- added string icompare/iequal for case-insensitive comparisons
	- string index's index can now be ?end[+-]?expression
	  I made this change in the private TclGetIntForIndex, which means
	  that the list commands also benefit, as well as string range, et al.
	- added [string repeat string count]
	  Repeats given string number of times
	- added string replace, string equiv to lreplace
	  (quasi opposite of string range):
		string replace first last ?string?
	  Example of use, replacing end of string with ... should the string
	  be more than 16 chars long:
		string replace $string 16 end "..."
	  This just returns the string len < 16, so it will only affect the
	  long strings.
	- added optional first and last args to string to*
	  This allows you to just affect certain regions of a string with the
	  command (like just capping the first letter). I found the original
	  totitle to be too draconian to be useful.
	- added [string map charMap string]
	  where charMap is a {from to from to} list that equates to what one
	  might get from [array get]. Each and can be multiple chars (or none
	  at all). For Tcl/CGI users, this is a MAJOR speed booster.

	* generic/tclParse.c (Tcl_ParseCommand): Changed to avoid modifying
	eval'ed strings that are already null terminated. [Bug 1793]

	* tests/binary.test:
	* generic/tclBinary.c (DupByteArrayInternalRep): Fixed bug where type
	was not being set in duplicated object. [Bug 1975, 2047]

1999-04-30  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* Changed version to 8.1.1.

1999-04-30  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* Merged changes from 8.1.0 branch:

	* generic/tclParse.c: Fixed memory leak in CommandComplete.

	* generic/tclPlatDecls.h:
	* generic/tclIntPlatDecls.h:
	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:
	* generic/tclDecls.h:
	* tools/genStubs.tcl: Added 'extern "C" {}' block around the stub
	table pointer declaration so the stub library can be used from C++.
	[Bug 1934]

	* Lots of documentation and other release engineering fixes.

1999-04-28  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* mac/tclMacResource.c:
	* generic/tclListObj.c:
	* generic/tclObj.c:
	* generic/tclStringObj.c: Changed to avoid freeing the string
	representation before freeing the internal rep. This helps with
	debugging since the string rep will still be valid when the free proc
	is invoked.

1999-04-27  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclLiteral.c (TclHideLiteral): Fixed so hidden literals get
	duplicated to avoid accidental sharing in the global object table.

1999-04-23  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclStubInit.c:
	* tools/genStubs.tcl: Changed to avoid the need for forward
	declarations in stub initializers.

1999-04-23  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* library/encoding/koi8-r.enc:
	* tools/encoding/koi8-r.txt: Added support for the koi8-r Cyrillic
	encoding. [Bug 1771]

1999-04-22  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinFCmd.c:
	* win/tclWin32Dll.c: Changed uses of "try" to "__try", since that is
	the actual keyword. This eliminates the need for some -D flags from
	the makefile.

	* generic/tclPort.h: Added include of tcl.h since it defines various
	Windows macros that are needed before deciding which platform porting
	file to use.

	* generic/tclEvent.c: lint

	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclpInitPlatform): Added call to TclWinInit when
	building a static library since DllMain will not be invoked. This
	could break old code that explicitly called TclWinInit, but should be
	simpler in the long run.

1999-04-22  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclInt.decls:
	* generic/tclCompile.c: Added TclSetByteCodeFromAny that takes a hook
	procedure to invoke after compilation but before the byte codes are
	emitted. This makes it possible to do postprocessing on the compiled
	byte codes before the ByteCode is generated.

	* generic/tclLiteral.c: Added TclHideLiteral and TclAddLiteralObj to
	make it possible to create local unshared literal objects.

	* win/tclWinInit.c:
	* unix/tclUnixInit.c: Changed initial search path to match that
	found used by tcl_findLibrary.

1999-04-22  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinPort.h:
	* win/tclWinSock.c: Added code to use WinSock 2.0 API on NT to avoid
	creating a window to handle sockets. API not available on Win95 and
	needs to be fixed on Win98, until then continue to use the older
	(window-based) scheme on those two OSes.

1999-04-15  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* Merged 8.1 back into the main trunk

1999-04-13  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* library/encoding/gb2312.enc:
	* library/encoding/euc-cn.enc:
	* tools/encoding/gb2312.txt:
	* tools/encoding/cp950.txt:
	* tools/encoding/Makefile: Restored the double byte definition of
	GB2312 and added the EUC-CN encoding. EUC-CN is a variant of GB2312
	that shifts the characters into bytes with the high bit set and
	includes ASCII as a subset. [Bug 632]

1999-04-13  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinSock.c: Apply patch to allow write access to a socket if
	FD_WRITE is sent but FD_CONNECT is not. Some strange problem with
	either Win32 or a socket driver. [Bug 1664 1776]

1999-04-09  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c: Fixed notifier deadlock situation when the pipe
	used to talk back notifier thread is filled with data. When calling
	the write() function to feed data down that pipe, unlock the
	notifierMutex to allow the notifier to wake up again. Found as a
	result of the focus.test for Tk hanging. [Bug 1700]

1999-04-06  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tests/unixNotfy.test: Fixed hang in tests when built with thread

	* tests/httpold.test: Fixed broken test that didn't wait long enough
	for events to arrive.

	* tests/unixInit.test: Fixed race condition in test.

	* tests/unixInit.test:
	* tests/fileName.test: Minor test nits.

	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpSetInitialEncodings): Fixed bad initial
	encoding string.

1999-04-06  Bryan Surles  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclVar.c:
	* generic/tclEnv.c: Moved the "array set" C level code into a common
	routine (TclArraySet). The TclSetupEnv routine now uses this API to
	create an env array w/ no elements.

	* generic/tclEnv.c:
	* generic/tclWinInit.h:
	* generic/tclUnixInit.h:
	* generic/tclInt.h: Made the Env module I18N compliant. Changed the
	FindVariable routine to TclpFindVariable, that now does a case
	insensitive string comparison on Windows, and not on UNIX. [Bug 1299,

1999-04-05  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tests/io.test: Minor test cleanup.

	* generic/tclEncoding.c (Tcl_CreateEncoding): Minor lint to make it
	easier to compile on Digital-unix. [Bug 1659]

	* unix/
	* unix/tclUnixPort.h: Applied patch for OS/390 to handle lack of
	sys/param.h. [Bug 1725]

	* unix/ Fixed BSD/OS 4.* configuration to support shared
	libraries properly. [Bug 1730]

1999-04-05  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* generic/tclInt.decls:
	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclIntDecls.h:

	* generic/tclUtil.c: Added more functions to the Tcl stubs table,
	including all Tcl_ functions not already in it (except Cmd functions)
	and Tcl_GetCwd() and Tcl_Chdir() (new functions).

	* tests/safe.test:
	* doc/safe.n:
	* generic/tclBasic.c:
	* library/safe.tcl: The encoding command is not safe as-is, so create
	a safe alias to mask out the "encoding system <name>" but allow all
	other uses including "encoding system". Added test cases and updated
	the man page for Safe Tcl.

1999-04-05  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tests/winTime.test:
	* win/tclWinTime.c: Fixed crash in clock command that occurred when
	manipulating negative time values in timezones east of GMT. [Bug
	1142, 1458]

	* tests/platform.test:
	* tests/fileName.test: Fixed broken tests.

	* generic/tclFileName.c: Moved global regexps into thread local

	* tests/socket.test: Changed so tests don't reuse sockets, since
	Windows is slow to release sockets.

	* win/tclWinConsole.c:
	* win/tclWinPipe.c:
	* win/tclWinSerial.c: Fixed race condition where background threads
	were terminated while they still held a lock in the notifier.

1999-04-02  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tests/http.test: Fixed bad test initialization code.

	* generic/tclThreadTest.c (ThreadExitProc): Fixed bug where static
	memory was being returned instead of a dynamically allocated result in
	error cases.

1999-04-02  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* doc/dde.n:
	* tools/
	* win/
	* win/pkgIndex.tcl:
	* win/tclWinDde.c: Add new DDE package, code removed from Tk now
	separated into its own package. Changed DDE-based send code into "dde
	eval" command. Can be loaded into tclsh (not just wish). Windows only.

1999-04-01  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tests/registry.test:
	* win/tclWinReg.c: Internationalized the registry code. It now uses
	Unicode interfaces on NT. [Bug 1197]

	* tests/parse.test:
	* generic/tclParse.c: Fixed crash due to multiple frees in parser
	during error cleanup when parsing commands with more tokens than will
	fit in the static area of the parse structure. [Bug 1681]

	* generic/tclInt.h: Removed duplicate declarations.

	* generic/tclInt.decls:

	* win/ Applied patch from Jan Nijtmans to fix Ultrix
	multiple symbol definition problem. Now, even Tcl includes a copy of
	the Tcl stub library. Also fixed TCL_MEM_DEBUG mode (for Tk).

1999-03-31  Scott Redman  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinConsole.c: WinNT has a bug when reading a single character
	from the console. Rewrote the code for the console to read an entire
	line at a time using the reader thread.

1999-03-30  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* unix/ Removed trailing backslash that broke the "depend"

	* unix/tclUnixInit.c (TclpSetInitialEncodings): Changed to avoid
	calling setlocale(). We now look directly at env(LANG) and
	env(LC_CTYPE) instead. [Bug 1636]

	* generic/tclFileName.c:
	* generic/tclDecls.h:
	* generic/tcl.decls: Removed CONST from Tcl_JoinPath and
	Tcl_TranslateFileName because it changes the signature of Tcl_JoinPath
	in an incompatible manner.

	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tclLoad.c (TclFinalizeLoad):
	* generic/tclEvent.c (Tcl_Finalize): Defer unloading of loadable

	as a shared library; specify --disable-shared to build a static Tcl
	library and shell.

	* tests/interp.test:
	* generic/tclInterp.c (AliasObjCmd): Changed so aliases are invoked at
	current scope in the target interpreter instead of at the global
	scope. This was an incompatibility introduced in 8.1 that is being
	removed. [Bug 1153, 1556]

	* library/encoding/big5.enc:

	implementation uses windows to handle events on the socket, one for
	each thread (thread local storage). Previously, there was only one
	window shared between threads, which didn't work. [Bug 1326]

	is invoked whenever the service mode changes. This is needed to allow
	the Windows notifier to create a communication window the first time
	Tcl is about to enter an external modal event loop instead of at
	startup time. This will avoid the various problems that people have
	been seeing where the system hangs when tclsh is running outside of
	the event loop. [Bug 783]

	* generic/tclInt.h:
	* generic/tcl.decls: Renamed TclpAlertNotifier back to
	Tcl_AlertNotifier since it is part of the public notifier driver API.

	* win/tclWinSerial.c: Fixed problem with fileevent on the serial port
	and nonblocking mode. Gets no longer hangs, fileevents fire whenever
	there is any character data on the port.

	* tests/winConsole.test:
	* win/tclWinConsole.c: Fixed problem with fileevents and gets from a
	console stdin. Previously, fileevents were firing before an entire
	line was available for reading, which meant that when you did a gets
	or read, it blocked (even in nonblocking mode). Now, it should work
	the same as Unix: fileevents fire when an entire line is ready, and
	gets and read do not block in non-blocking mode. Added an interactive
	test case to check for this.

	* test/winPipe.test: Changed to remove echoArgs.tcl temporary file
	when done.

	* tests/cmdAH.test:
	* generic/tclFileName.c (TclGetExtension): Changed behavior so the
	split happens at the last period in the name instead of the first
	period of the last run of periods. So, "foo..o" is split into "foo."
	and ".o" now. [Bug 1126]

	* win/ Added better support for paths with spaces in the
	name. Added .lib and support .dlls to the install-binaries target.
	Added generate of a pkgIndex.tcl script to the install-libraries

	* win/tclAppInit.c:
	* unix/tclAppInit.c:
	* mac/tclMacAppInit.c:
	* generic/tclTest.c: Changed some EXTERN declarations to extern since
	they are not defining exported interfaces. This avoids generating
	useless declspec() attributes and makes the windows makefile simpler.

	* generic/tcl.h: Moved Tcl_AppInit declaration to end and cleared out
	TCL_STORAGE_CLASS so it is not declared with a declspec().

	* tests/interp.test:
	* generic/tclInterp.c (DeleteAlias): Changed to use
	Tcl_DeleteCommandFromToken so we handle renames properly. This avoids
	senseless panic. [Bug 736]

	* unix/tclUnixChan.c:
	* win/tclWinSock.c:
	* doc/socket.n: Applied Gordon Chaffee's patch to handle failures

	been deleted.

	* generic/tclCompile.c (TclCompileExprCmd): Eliminated yet another
	bogus optimization in expression compilation.

	* unix/ Added branch for BSD/OS-4* to shared library case
	statement. [Bug 975]
	Fixed to correctly handle IRIX 6.5 n32 library support. [Bug 1117]

	* win/winDumpExts.c: Patched to be pickier about stripping @'s. [Bug

	* library/http2.0/http.tcl: Added catch around eof test in CopyDone
	since the user may have already called http::reset. [Bug 1108]

	* unix/ Changed Linux and IRIX to set SHLIB_LIBS to LIBS
	so shared libraries are linked with the system libraries. [Bug 1018]

	* generic/tclCompile.c (CompileExprWord): Fixed exception stack
	overflow bug caused by missing statement. [Bug 928]

	* generic/tclIOCmd.c:
	* generic/tclBasic.c: Objectified the "open" command. [Bug 1113]

	* generic/tclPosixStr.c (Tcl_ErrnoId, Tcl_ErrnoMsg): When using egcs,
	ENOTSUP and EOPNOTSUPP are the same, so now we handle that case. [Bug

	* library/init.tcl: Various small changes requested by Jan Nijtmans.
	- If the variable $tcl_library contains the empty string, this empty
	  string will be put in $auto_path. This is not useful at all, it only
	  slows down later package processing.
	- If the variable tcl_pkgPath is not set, the "unset __dir" fails.
	  Thich makes init.tcl totally unusable. Better put a "catch" around
	- In the function tcl_findLibraries, the "string match" function only
	  works correctly if $tcl_patchLevel is in one of the forms "?.?a?",
	  "?.?b?" or "?.?.?". Could a "regexp" be used instead, then it allows
	  anything to be appended to the patchLevel string. And it is more
	- The tclPkgSetup function assumes that if $type != "load" then the
	  type must be "source". This needn't be true. Some users want to add
	  their own setup types.
	[RFE 1138] [Bug 978]

	* win/tclWinReg.c:
	* doc/registry.n: Added support for HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA and
	HKEY_DYN_DATA keys. [Bug 1109]

	* win/tclWinInit.c (TclPlatformInit): Added code to ensure tcl_pkgPath

	restoring Tcl_EvalObj and Tcl_GlobalEvalObj interfaces so they match
	Tcl 8.0.

	* Merged Tcl 8.0.5b1 changes.

	* generic/tclUtil.c (Tcl_DStringSetLength): Changed so the buffer

1998-12-03  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinPipe.c (BuildCommandLine): Fixed bug that kept arguments
	containing spaces from being properly quoted.

	* tests/defs: Changed so auto_path is set to only contain the Tcl
	library directory. This keeps the tests from accidentally picking up
	stuff in installed packages.

	* generic/tclUtil.c (Tcl_StringMatch): Changed to match 8.0 behavior
	in corner case where there is no closing bracket.

1998-12-02  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* win/tclWinPipe.c (TclpCreateCommandChannel): Changed reader/writer
	threads to have THREAD_PRIORITY_HIGHEST so they will have a chance to
	run whenever there is something to do.

	* generic/tclIO.c (WriteBytes, WriteChars): Fixed so extraneous
	flushes do not happen in line mode.
	(TranslateOutputEOL): Made translation more efficient in line mode and
	fixed a buffer overflow bug in CRLF translation. [Bug 887]

	* generic/tclParse.c (Tcl_ParseCommand): Fixed bug in comment parsing
	where a trailing comment looked like an incomplete command.

1998-12-02  Brent Welch  <[email protected]>

1998-11-30  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c (Tcl_WaitForEvent): Fixed hang that occurs when
	trying to close a pipe that is currently being waited on by the
	notifier thread. [Bug 607]

	* unix/tclUnixFCmd.c (GetPermissionsAttribute): Increase size of
	returnString buffer to avoid overflow. [Bug 584]

	* generic/tclThreadTest.c (TclThreadSend): Fixed memory leak due to
	use of TCL_VOLATILE instead of TCL_DYNAMIC.

	* generic/tclThread.c (TclRememberSyncObject): Fixed memory leak
	caused by failure to reuse condition variables.

	* unix/tclUnixNotfy.c (Tcl_AlertNotifier, Tcl_WaitForEvent,
	(NotifierThreadProc, Tcl_InitNotifier): Fixed race condition caused by
	incorrect use of condition variables when sending messages between
	threads. [Bug 607]

	* generic/tclTestObj.c (TeststringobjCmd): MAX_STRINGS was off by one
	so the strings array was too small.

	* generic/tclCkalloc.c (Tcl_DbCkfree): Moved mutex lock so
	ValidateMemory is done inside the mutex to avoid a race condition when
	validate_memory is enabled. [Bug 880]

	* regexec.c: more performance tuning from Henry Spencer.

1998-11-17  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tclScan.c: moved "scan" implementation out of tclCmdMZ.c and added
	Unicode support. This required a complete reimplementation of the
	command to avoid using scanf(), which isn't Unicode aware. Two new
	features were added in the process: %n to return the current number of
	characters consumed, and XPG3-style %n$ argument order specifiers
	similar to those provided by the "format" command. [Bug 833]

	* tclAlloc.c: changed so allocated memory is always 8-byte aligned to
	improve memory performance and to ensure that it will work on systems
	that don't like accessing 4-byte aligned values (e.g. Solaris and
	HP-UX). [Bug 834]

1998-11-06  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tclVar.c (TclGetIndexedScalar): Fixed bug 796, var name was getting
	lost before being passed to CallTraces.

1998-10-21  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* added "encoding" command

	* Moved internal regexp declarations from tclInt.h to tclRegexp.h

	* integrated regexp updates from Henry Spencer

1998-10-15  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* tclUtf.c: added Unicode character table support

	* tclInt.h: added TclUniCharIsWordChar

	* tclCmdMZ.c (Tcl_StringObjCmd): added "totitle" subcommand, changed
	"wordend" and "wordstart" to properly handle Unicode word characters
	and connector punctuation

1998-10-05  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* auto.tcl, package.tcl: fixed SCCS strings

	* tclIndex: updated index to reflect 8.1 files

	* tclCompile.c (TclCompileScript): changed to avoid modifying the
	input string in place because name lookup operations could have
	arbitrary side effects

	* tclInterp.c: added guard against deleting current interpreter

	* tclMacFile.c, tclUnixFile.c, tclWinFile.c, tclFileName.c: added
	warnings around code that modifies strings in place

	* tclExecute.c: fixed off-by-one copying error, fixed merge bugs

	* tclEvent.c: changed so USE_TCLALLOC is tested for value instead of

	* tclCompCmds.c: replaced SCCS strings, added warnings around code
	that modifies strings in place

	* interp.test: added test for interp deleting itself

1998-09-30  Scott Stanton  <[email protected]>

	* fixed so TCL_LIBRARY is set before running tcltest

	* tclWin32Dll.c: removed TclpFinalize, cleanup of merges
