Revision history for Perl extension Geo::BUFR. 1.38 2020-07-15 - Include replication descriptors in output for option --all_operators in bufrread.pl (or more generally for set_show_all_operators()) - New accessor method get_bufr_length() - Default tables for utility programs changed to master table version 33 1.37 2019-02-16 - Allow for ecCodes table format (BUFRDC is still default) - Allow for BUFR edition 0 and 1 - Default tables for utility programs changed to master table version 29 1.36 2016-12-02 - Fixes in code and test scripts allowing for parallell testing and for bufrextract.pl to work on Windows 1.35 2016-11-29 - New utility program bufrextract.pl, for extraction of BUFR messages and/or AHLs from BUFR file(s), possibly filtering on AHL - New methods get_bufr_message(), bad_bufrlength() and ahl_is_reused(), all needed by bufrextract.pl - AHLs extracted also when BUFR messages are given as argument to new() (instead of read from file) 1.34 2016-07-12 - Fixed "Insecure dependency in sprintf" when running under -T switch introduced in 1.32. 1.33 2016-04-22 - Changed quoting in some test scripts, needed to pass 'make test' on Windows. 1.32 2016-04-18 - Added option of skipping decoding of section 4 either globally: new method set_nodata(), or in a filter fashion: new method set_filter_cb() takes a user defined callback function as argument for filtering on AHL and metadata in section 0-3. - New method reuse_current_ahl() for settling what get_current_ahl() should return when the processed BUFR message has no immediately preceding AHL. - New options --nodata and --ahl in bufrread.pl for skipping section 4 and filtering on AHL. - Decoded decimal values now displayed with the precision provided for in BUFR. E.g. "0.0" instead of "0" for value=0 and scale=1. - Supporting decoding of BUFR messages missing descriptors to be repeated (when corresponding delayed replication/repetition factor in section 4 is 0 and this is last data item). 1.31 2015-03-11 - Fix in bufralter.pl to hopefully make it work on Windows. 1.30 2015-03-05 - Fixed bug in a test script, causing make test to fail on some systems. 1.29 2015-03-04 - Fixed bug introduced in 1.26: bytes for local use by ADP centres in section 1 weren't always reset when handling multiple messages. - No longer uses File::Slurp (so all modules required should now be part of a standard Perl distribution). 1.28 2015-02-27 - If local table cannot be found, try master table instead. - Supporting encoding of data description operator 206Y. - Default tables for utility programs changed to master table version 23. 1.27 2014-05-23 - Bugfix for data description operator 237000. - Strict checking for 0 subsets. 1.26 2014-05-07 - For BUFR messages with errors, start searching for next BUFR message right after 'BUFR' (length in section 0 should not be trusted). Last call to next_observation in 'while (not $bufr->eof())' loops is now likely to return empty list. - No BUFR message in file is no longer considered an error. - Strict checking for missing CCITTIA5 value encoded as spaces. - New verbose level 6 (useful for inspecting BUFR messages with errors). 1.25 2013-09-13 - Supporting data description operators 232000 and 232225. 1.24 2013-08-28 - Bugfix in bufrread.pl (when running with --strict_checking 2). - Strict_checking for (reserved) 0 bits 3-8 in octet 7 in section 3. - Default tables for utility programs changed to master table version 19. 1.23 2013-05-14 - Supporting data description operators 207Y and 235000. - Several bugfixes related to bit maps. 1.22 2013-04-03 - Format of ECMWF tables version 15-17 changed slightly from previous versions, requiring some changes in processing. - Strict checking for value encoded using BUFR compression which would be too big to encode without compression. - Had to change a test script because newer versions of perl might add a '.' to end of warning/error messages. 1.21 2012-02-06 - Better recovery from some error conditions (like table D descriptor not found). - Strict_checking for character data not being CCITTIA5. 1.20 2011-03-08 - Supporting delayed repetition (031011,031012) - Allow total length of BUFR message as stated in section 0 to be bigger than actual length (if $Strict_checking not set). - Strict_checking for null characters in CCITTIA5 data. - New option --on_error_stop to bufrread.pl. - copy_from altered to copy also section 2 if copying of metadata is requested. Makes bufralter.pl work for messages with optional section. 1.19 2010-11-29 - Bugfix in bufrread.pl --filter - If local table version is 255, treat this as if it was 0 when finding which table to use. 1.18 2010-09-30 - join_subsets altered to always respect order of subsets specified - encode_nil_message altered to set number of subsets to 1 and data compression to 0, saving user from remembering this. 1.17 2010-09-14 - Data description operator 208Y implemented. 1.16 2010-07-21 - Strip trailing nulls from CCITTIA5 data. - dumpsections() now takes optional argument for controlling width and whether bitmapped values are displayed side by side. - copy() renamed to copy_from(). - Use looks_like_number from Scalar::Util to check that numeric input to encoding routines is indeed numeric. 1.15 2010-07-02 - clone() replaced with copy() with somewhat different syntax. - New methods rewind() and join_subsets(). - Added optional parameter to encode_nil_message() making it possible to set delayed replication factors > 1. - Default tables for utility programs changed to master table version 14. 1.14 2010-05-18 - Apply binmode to filehandle in fopen. - Added two more methods for extracting info from BUFR B and D tables. 1.13 2010-05-07 - Bugfix in dec2bitstream: could cause rounding errors when encoding big width numerical values. 1.12 2010-04-13 - Test script t/bufralter.t: fixed a quoting bug. 1.11 2010-04-12 - Test scripts: removed shebang line and use Config to find perl path. 1.1 2010-04-09 - Resolving of flag values fixed to work for big endian platforms. - Scaling of values fetched from bitstream transferred from BUFR.xs to BUFR.pm, resulting in new signature for method bitstream2dec. 1.0 2010-04-06 - First release for CPAN.
