Revision history for Perl extension WWW::Curl. 4.03 Sat Jun 21 2008: - Balint Szilakszi <szbalint at cpan.org> - Removing option to pass destination files as a typeglob as it is a backwards pointing magic and caused bugs. Use a filehandle or reference instead. - Fixed tests for 5.6, raised minimum Perl version to 5.6.1 due to tests. - Fixed a duphandle bug. 4.02 Thu Jun 19 2008: - Balint Szilakszi <szbalint at cpan.org> - Adding forgotten backwards compatibility with older Perl versions 4.01 Wed Jun 18 2008: - Balint Szilakszi <szbalint at cpan.org> - Reimplemented callback handling to fix several I/O issues (fixes RT #35491) - Documentation showing example WWW::Curl::Multi usage is corrected (fixes RT #35520) - Should now compile on HP-UX and OSX (fixes RT #36058 and #35349) - POD validity fix (fixes RT #15850) - Added several new tests - Upgraded to Module::Install 0.75 as it now exits correctly on build time with NA if the required libcurl isn't available. 4.00 Wed Mar 05 2008: - Balint Szilakszi <szbalint at cpan.org> - Rewritten documentation. - New test suite. - New build system: using Module::Install instead of ExtUtils::Makemaker. - New minimal requirements, Perl 5.6 and libcurl 7.10.8. - New WWW::Curl::Multi interface. - Removed WWW::Curl::easy. - Removed compatibility code for pre 7.10.8 libcurl. - Added lots of small improvements to setopt and friends. - Bugfixes, mainly for memory leaks. - SIGNATURE. 3.12 Wed Feb 27 2008: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - New Share.pm.in was missed from the MANIFEST, so was not in the distribution. Fixed. 3.11 Mon Feb 25 2008: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Merge recent contributions. - Updates from various small bug/build reports 3.10 Fri Feb 22 2008: - Anton Fedorov <datacompboy at mail.ru> - Fix documentation for multi interface - Added WWW::Curl::Share - Added strerror into Easy and Multi interfaces - Added support for CURLOPT_DEBUGFUNCTION in Easy interface 3.02_01 Tue Jan 29 2008: - Mark Hindley - Contributed CURLOPT_*_LARGE support 3.02_00 Fri Sep 16 2005: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Workaround case-sensitive filename issues by making equivalent Easy names in easy namespace - Test scripts - Fixup ssl tests and remove leftover MUTE option - NOTE: That due to namespace changes (easy->Easy) you must change any existing code to 'use WWW::Curl::Easy' instead of 'use WWW::Curl::easy', but you can still use the WWW::Curl::easy function names until they are removed in a future release. - Tested on Redhat EL3 (curl 7.10.6) and Mandrake 10.1 (curl 7.13.1) 3.01 Thu Apr 20 2004: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Merged Sebastians changes into CVS - Updated remaining tests to Test::Simple - Added backwards compatability to V2 names (WWW::Curl::easy etc) - Dropped backwards compatability to V1.x names 3.00 Thu Feb 12 2004: - Sebastian Riedel <sri at oook.de> - Added multi support - New module names - New tests - New documentation - New examples - Big cleanup!!! - Too much to tell, it's worth an upgrade 2.00 Tue Apr 22 2003: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - New top level package name of WWW::Curl in preparation for entry to CPAN - Rename "Curl::easy" to "WWW::Curl::easy" - Add backwards compatability namespace module for existing scripts - Implement initial curl_easy_duphandle support - Started on curl_easy_form support (WWW:Curl::form) - NOT FUNCTIONAL YET - Fixup use of env vars in t/07ftp-upload.t (jellyfish at pisem.net) - Adjust IP addresses for t/08ssl.t tests due to moved https servers 1.35 Sun Sep 22 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Fixed progress function callback prototype [ curl-Bugs-612432 ], reflecting the fix made in curl-7.9.5. Tested in t/05progress.t to now return sensible values! 1.34 Wed Aug 7 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Fix off-by-one error in setting up of curl_slists from perl arrays, which was causing the last item of slists to be dropped. Added regression test case. 1.33 Mon Aug 5 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Fix serious bug in read callback support (used for POST and upload requests), introduced in 1.30, which uploaded random data (due to a reversed src/dest in a memory copy). 1.32 Thu Aug 1 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Minor Makefile.PL fixes to build cleanly with curl 7.8 as found on redhat 7.2. 1.31 Tue Jul 16 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Generate better switch() statement syntax in C code, to fix build issues on some systems with strict compilers. Reported by Ignasi Roca. 1.30 Mon Jul 15 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Testing release after complete code overhaul. Now supports cleaner object interface, supports multiple handles per process, uses PerlIO for portable I/O (which should be perl 5.8 ready) and maybe even supports ithreads. Should be fully backwards compatible, but please read the man page for change details and report any issues. - Fixed warning caused by slist functions accessing past the end of the perl array. - Fixed leak caused by consuming slist arguments without freeing. - Updates test scripts to OO style, cleaned up output. - Deprecated USE_INTERNAL_VARS. 1.21 Thu Jul 11 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Minor fixes to assist windows builds from Shawn Poulson - Allow passing curl include location on the command line when running perl Makefile.PL 1.20 Sat Feb 16 2002: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Use standard perl module numbering syntax (valid decimal) - Skipped 1.10 in case anyone confuses it with 1.1.0 - Made every build a rebuild and removed 'pre-built' files - no point worrying about not finding curl.h - if we can't find it, we can't compile anyway. Obviates bug in 1.1.9 preventing rebuilds. - Add support for redefining CURLOPT_STDERR (file handle globs only!) 1.1.9 Sat Dec 8 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Enhance Makefile.PL to re-build easy.pm and 'constants' xs function from local installed curl.h. CURLOPT_ and CURLINFO_ Constants up-to-date for libcurl-7.9.2, but can be re-built for almost any libcurl version by removing easy.pm and curlopt-constants.c and re-running 'perl Makefile.PL' - Use curl-config to find include and library compile options - Updated test scripts to work better under 'make test' (You need to set the environment variable 'CURL_TEST_URL' though!) - Added test script to display transfer times using new time options - Merge changes in Curl_easy 188.8.131.52 by Georg Horn 1.1.8 Thu Sep 20 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Re-generate CURLOPT_ constants from curl.h and enhance makefile to allow this to be repeated in future or for older versions of libcurl. Constants up-to-date for libcurl-7.9(pre) - Split tests into t/*.t to simplify each case - Add test cases for new SSL switches. This needs ca-bundle.crt (from mod_ssl) for verifying test cases. 1.1.7 Thu Sep 13 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Documentation Update only - Explicitly state that Curl_easy is released under the MIT-X/MPL dual licence. No code changes. 1.1.6 Mon Sep 10 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Fix segfault due to changes in header callback behaviour since curl-7.8.1-pre3 1.1.5 Fri Apr 20 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Add latest CURLOPT_ and CURLINFO_ constants to the constants list 1.1.4 Fri Apr 20 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Fix case where curl_slists such as 'HTTPHEADERS' need to be re-set over persistant requests 1.1.3 Wed Apr 18 2001: - Cris Bailiff <c.bailiff+curl at devsecure.com> - Change/shorten module function names: Curl::easy::curl_easy_setopt becomes Curl::easy::setopt etc. This requires minor changes to existing scripts.... - Added callback function support to pass arbitrary SV * (including FILE globs) from perl through libcurl to the perl callback. - Make callbacks still work with existing scripts which use STDIO - Initial support for libcurl 7.7.2 HEADERFUNCTION callback feature - Minor API cleanups/changes in the callback function signatures - Added Curl::easy::version function to return curl version string - Callback documentation added in easy.pm - More tests in test.pl 1.1.2 Mon Apr 16 2001: - Georg Horn <horn at koblenz-net.de> - Added support for callback functions. This is for the curl_easy_setopt() options WRITEFUNCTION, READFUNCTION, PROGRESSFUNCTION and PASSWDFUNCTION. Still missing, but not really neccessary: Passing a FILE * pointer, that is passed in from libcurl, on to the perl callback function. - Various cleanups, fixes and enhancements to easy.xs and test.pl. 1.1.1 Thu Apr 12 2001: - Made more options of curl_easy_setopt() work: Options that require a list of curl_slist structs to be passed in, like CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, are now working by passing a perl array containing the list elements. As always, look at the test script test.pl for an example. 1.1.0 Wed Apr 11 2001: - tested against libcurl 7.7 - Added new function Curl::easy::internal_setopt(). By calling Curl::easy::internal_setopt(Curl::easy::USE_INTERNAL_VARS, 1); the headers and content of the fetched page are no longer stored into files (or written to stdout) but are stored into internal Variables $Curl::easy::headers and $Curl::easy::content. 1.0.2 Tue Oct 10 2000: - runs with libcurl 7.4 - modified curl_easy_getinfo(). It now calls curl_getinfo() that has been added to libcurl in version 7.4. 1.0.1 Tue Oct 10 2000: - Added some missing features of curl_easy_setopt(): - CURLOPT_ERRORBUFFER now works by passing the name of a perl variable that shall be crated and the errormessage (if any) be stored to. - Passing filehandles (Options FILE, INFILE and WRITEHEADER) now works. Have a look at test.pl to see how it works... - Added a new function, curl_easy_getinfo(), that for now always returns the number of bytes that where written to disk during the last download. If the curl_easy_getinfo() function is included in libcurl, (as promised by Daniel ;-)) i will turn this into just a call to this function. 1.0 Thu Oct 5 2000: - first released version - runs with libcurl 7.3 - some features of curl_easy_setopt() are still missing: - passing function pointers doesn't work (options WRITEFUNCTION, READFUNCTION and PROGRESSFUNCTION). - passing FILE * pointers doesn't work (options FILE, INFILE and WRITEHEADER). - passing linked lists doesn't work (options HTTPHEADER and HTTPPOST). - setting the buffer where to store error messages in doesn't work (option ERRORBUFFER).
