Revision history for Linux::Inotify2 TODO: document move/renaming issues for fullname TODO: find_watchers($path), or maybe just ->watchers 2.3 Sat Jul 31 13:45:51 CEST 2021 - store a filehandle internally so it gets perl's CLOEXEC flag as needed. also gets rid of the destructor and the internal close function for added space savings (reported by Eric Wong). - add new ->fh accessor. 2.2 Mon Dec 9 04:09:05 CET 2019 - define IN_EXCL_UNLINK to 0 if it is missing, for the benefit of antique systems that lack this symbol. 2.1 Fri Oct 26 03:16:03 CEST 2018 - damn, left debugging code not caught by tests (reported by losyme). 2.0 Thu Oct 25 03:19:08 CEST 2018 - fix poll and read documentation w.r.t. errors - this changes the documented API, but is how the module has always behaved. - mention https://lwn.net/Articles/605128/ in the docs. - new on_overflow callback, called for overflow events. - new ->broadcast method that calls all watchers with some event. - automatically broadcast overflow events to all watchers by default. - read now returns all events (except ignored ones), not just ones it has registered watchers for (e.g. overflow events). - reduced dependencies (Mike Pomraning). - add IN_EXCL_UNLINK flag. - more efficient constant initialisation. 1.22 Tue Jun 14 08:34:38 CEST 2011 - use a more useful definition of IN_xxx methods - any bits, not a match. (pointed out by Anatoliy Grishayev). - slightly reworked the documentation. 1.21 Mon Sep 21 10:07:07 CEST 2009 - fix a couple of typoes, as pointed out by Grant McLean. - rely on common::sense for stricter namespace checking. 1.2 Tue Oct 7 19:23:57 CEST 2008 - include IN_DELETE_SELF in events that cancel watchers, as the kernel seems to handle it this way only. - require sys/inotify.h to be installed, remove the local copy (patch by Adrian Bunk). - update examples. 1.1 Fri Sep 29 16:40:14 CEST 2006 - fixed formatting. - add IN_MASK_ADD, IN_DONT_FOLLOW, IN_ONLYDIR. - updated inotify.h from inotify-utils for wider architecture support. - no internal changes. 1.01 Tue Dec 20 12:31:16 CET 2005 - more fixes by Andrejs Dubovskis: - removed debugging code accidentally left in. - streaming API didn't always return properly blessed objects. 1.0 Mon Dec 19 17:48:01 CET 2005 - incorporated a major patch by Andrejs Dubovskis: - added a non-callback interface to read events - better error handling in non-blocking case. - added test case. - fix reading events leaking memory. 0.8 Sun Nov 27 13:43:14 CET 2005 - improved documentation. - added IN_MOVE_SELF. - cancel events when receiving an IN_ONESHOT event. - clarify documentation for ->cookie. 0.2 Tue Aug 23 04:27:31 CEST 2005 - poll now really returns the #events. - handle multiple cancel's gracefully. - auto-cancel watchers on IN_IGNORED and IN_UNMOUNT. situation with IN_ONESHOT is unclear (does have no effect on 2.6.13-rc6-git13). - avoid race between canceled and newly-created watches. - improved documentation. 0.1 Mon Aug 22 12:05:15 CEST 2005 - original version, a Linux::AIO clone.
