6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas Changes since Pike 7.2: ----------------------------------------------------------------------
cd683a2001-07-27Johan Sundström 
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson New/improved functionality: ---------------------------
cd683a2001-07-27Johan Sundström 
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas o New Hilfe
d4ce822002-09-26Johan Sundström  The interactive pike environment you get when running pike without giving a program name, has been thoroughly rewritten. Most notably it now supports more of the common pike constructs, and is more extendable and configurable. Start it and type help for more info.
cd683a2001-07-27Johan Sundström 
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson o AutoDoc
29147c2002-10-31Martin Nilsson  The major parts of Pike now has some sort of documentation on class and function level thanks to the AutoDoc system which has been deployed during the last year. Manual dumps are published on
a3055d2002-11-24Marcus Agehall  http://pike.ida.liu.se/docs/reference/.
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson 
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas o pike -x
d4ce822002-09-26Johan Sundström  When starting pike with the -x parameter, the pike process will run the named script in Tools.Standalone, giving the rest of the arguments as command-line switches. This is a convenient way of running rsif (replace string in file) and pv (the image viewer you may be familiar with from Tools.PV).
cd683a2001-07-27Johan Sundström 
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas o unbug
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas  Embryo of a Pike debugger. Not stable nor finished.
d729172002-07-14Honza Petrous 
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson o Unicode 3.2.0
99b2a62002-09-26Henrik Grubbström (Grubba)  All charts have been updated to Unicode 3.2.0. This applies both to the Unicode module as well as to Pike-global functionality such as
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson  upper_case/lower_case. unicode_to_string() also has support for surrogate and byteorder make handling.
d729172002-07-14Honza Petrous 
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson o Extended random()
bd8a482002-10-27Martin Nilsson  random() now works on floats, arrays, multisets, mappings and objects in addition to integers.
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson  o delay()/sleep()
bd8a482002-10-27Martin Nilsson  sleep() no longer busywaits, which it previously did for small
e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas  values. The old behavior is available from the delay() function.
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson 
d4ce822002-09-26Johan Sundström o search(string, int) / has_value(string, int) Both of these methods now handle both looking for strings and
3787512002-09-27Johan Sundström  integers (the unicode number for a single character). Examples: search("hi, ho!", '!'), has_value("Nope.", ' ')
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson 
29147c2002-10-31Martin Nilsson o Expanded Charset module The character set module now has support for the character sets Shift_JS, UTF-7.5, EUC, Big5, CP950, UTF-16, UTF-16BE, UTF-16LE. It is now also easier to get the right charset codec since the names are normalized internally.
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson Language additions: -------------------
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm o foreach(X; Y; Z) The foreach statement has been extended to allow iterations over mappings, multisets and any object that implements the iterator interface (see below). To make it possible to use this conveniently, a new syntax has been added to get both the index and the value in each iteration:
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  foreach (something; index-expr; value-expr) ...
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  This iterates over something, assigning in turn each index to index-expr and each value to value-expr. The index and value expressions can be declarations or lvalues, and they can also be left out if the index and/or value part isn't interesting. Note that it depends on the data type whether the iteration order is well defined or not; arrays and multisets are iterated over starting with the first element while mappings are visited in some arbitrary order (each element is still visited only once, though). o Iterators As noted above, an iterator interface has been added that is now used in various places to iterate over different data structures. Not only the built-in data types are supported, but actually any object that fulfills the interface for iterators: When iterating over an object o, o->_get_iterator() is called to
99b2a62002-09-26Henrik Grubbström (Grubba)  get an iterator object. An iterator object should at least have two functions, index() and value(), to get the index and value at the current position, a function `+=(int steps) to advance the current position the specified number of steps, and a `!() that
f221a92002-11-02Henrik Grubbström (Grubba)  returns zero if the end of the data set hasn't been reached yet.
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  Also, if the object o lacks a _get_iterator function, it's assumed to be an iterator itself. This makes it possible to pass an iterator explicitly to e.g. the foreach statement. The built-in data types also have iterator classes with this interface. They are found as Array.Iterator, Mapping.Iterator, etc and can be used to iterate over these data types in some custom fashion. This is especially useful for mappings and multisets, which cannot be iterated over directly in any other way. For example, to get some arbitrary index in a mapping m:
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  mixed any_index = Mapping.Iterator(m)->index();
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm 
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas o Automap
4ec62a2002-10-31Johan Sundström  To perform per-element operations on arrays, there is now a convenience syntax for map(), that can make code more readable in some situations. Summing up two arrays element by element using automap looks like this:
a3055d2002-11-24Marcus Agehall  a[*] + b[*]; // the result has as many elements as the shortest array.
4ec62a2002-10-31Johan Sundström  Multiplying all elements in a by a constant:
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  a[*] * 4711;
4ec62a2002-10-31Johan Sundström  Make an array of what sprintf("%O", a[n]) returns for all elements in a:
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  sprintf("%O", a[*]);
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm o Implicit lambda
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas  A convenient way to embed code that needs pre- and/or post-
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  initialization. If a statement starts with a function call followed directly by a brace block, then the block is transformed to a lambda function which is passed as the last argument to the function being called. The following example embeds OpenGL calls that modifies the matrix in an implicit lambda that will save the matrix before execution and restore it afterwards: void PushPop( function f ) { glPushMatrix(); mixed err = catch(f()); glPopMatrix(); if (err) throw(err); }
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  void do_something() { PushPop() {
a3055d2002-11-24Marcus Agehall  glTranslate( ((1.0-0.08))/2, 0.0, 0.0 );
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  draw_stuff(); }; }
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  Note that although useful, this feature has important disadvantages and will probably be obsoleted by a better alternative in the future. The problem is that the inner brace block become a completely separate function instead of remaining a block. The difference (apart from being slower) is shown by this example:
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  void do_something() { PushPop() { if (glError()) return;
e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas  glTranslate( (1.0-0.08)/2, 0.0, 0.0 );
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  draw_stuff(); }; draw_more_stuff(); }
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  Since the inner block is a separate function, the return statement doesn't exit do_something() as one might expect, causing draw_more_stuff() to be called even when there's a GL error. Another effect is that break and continue can't be associated with statements outside the implicit lambda block.
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  Another method that overcomes these problems will likely be implemented. The problem is that it can give compatibility problems to change old code that uses implicit lambdas to that one, since e.g. return will work differently without giving any sort of error.
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm o Access to hidden variables in surrounding scopes
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  Include the names of the surrounding classes themselves in the lookup for
e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas  Foo::, to make it possible to address hidden variables in the scopes of
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  surrounding classes, e.g:
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  class Foo { int i;
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  void create (int i) {Foo::i = i;}
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  }
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm o global:: Added new keyword global to be able to access identifiers on the top level of the compilation unit using global::foo.
3dbeca2002-09-16Johan Sundström  o global. All top level modules (and other identifiers in that scope) can now
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  be accessed with a "global." prefix. This is useful in cases where
3dbeca2002-09-16Johan Sundström  local identifiers overshadow the top level, for instance in the Image module, where the Image.Image class would occasionally block your view.
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas  o this Added a magic identifier "this" that can be used instead of this_object(). Like this_program, it only exists when there's no
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm  other identifier with that name. The primary reason for adding this magic identifier is to make it possible to address the object of a surrounding class with Foo::this.
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm o The Local module
2ee5a42002-10-31Johan Sundström  All Pike modules and classes found in the directory hierarchies /usr/local/pike_modules, /opt/pike_modules, /opt/share/pike_modules, /usr/local/share/pike_modules, $HOME/pike_modules, and $PIKE_LOCAL_PATH (a :-separated list of directories) are available with the prefix "Local.". Local.add_path() and Local.remove_path() respectively adds and removes entries from the list of paths to inspect when resolving Local.* symbols.
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm o The program type can be specialized It's possible to specialize a program variable by adding a program identifier, much like an object variable can be specialized. E.g: program(Stdio.File) fd = Stdio.File;
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm o ::_indices(), ::_values().
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas  There are now two "magic" functions ::_indices() and ::_values() that can be used by an object to list all identifiers and their values in itself. They are primarily intended when the _indices() and _values() lfuns have been defined, to get the default implementations. This is to complement the "magic" ::`->() and ::`->=() functions that exist in earlier releases.
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson o UNDEFINED
00c0df2002-11-24Peter Bortas  To generate a 0 (zero) with a zero_type(var) == 1, you previously had to use constructs like ([])[0]. This is now available as the globally available symbol UNDEFINED.
6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas 
bf7e8e2002-09-26Martin Nilsson o _m_delete
fc7f8d2002-11-24Martin Stjernholm  A class can now define a function mixed _m_delete(mixed index) to make the objects work like mappings with m_delete(). (This feature has been added to later 7.2 releases too.) o sprintf("%O", foo) is more descriptive If foo is a program or an object then Pike will try to find the resolved name instead of returning just "program" or "object". However, if an object contains an _sprintf function it will still be called in this case.
bd8a482002-10-27Martin Nilsson 
cd683a2001-07-27Johan Sundström

6bf19a2002-09-15Peter Bortas o Improvement and bug tickets closed: 1499 Compatibility changes: ----------------------
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm The following changes are known to break compatibility. The old
e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas behavior is emulated in the compatibility layer that is activated by
638b8d2002-09-22Martin Stjernholm adding the preprocessor directive "#pike 7.2" to your program or by giving the argument "-V7.2" to the pike executable. o "global" has become a reserved keyword. o Changed lookup rule for ::. Previously the identifier in front of :: was only looked up among the preceding inherits. Now the lookup additionally includes the names of the surrounding classes. The inherits inside a class still take precedence over the name of the class, though. o Using local:: on variables is an error. Previously the construct local::foo could be used to access the identifier "foo" in the class scope if it had been overridden by an argument or function variable. That is however only a side-effect of the real use for local::, namely to bind the identifier statically at that point only, to avoid getting an overridden version. In the case of variables this leads to questionable semantics, which is the reason it's been made an error in this version. Pike 7.2 didn't implement it correctly; there local:: on variables had only the effect to access the class scope. Now a proper way to access hidden identifiers has been added, so all such uses of local:: should be replaced with this_program::.

1d89c52002-09-24Johan Sundström o Identifier lookup The search algorithm for finding identifiers from inherited classes has been changed to look for the most recent definition in the most recent inherit. In Pike 7.2 and prior, it looked up the last definition regardless of inherit depth, unless there was a definition in the current program. (This actually changed more than once during 7.3 - between 7.3.23 and 7.3.32, it looked up the most recent definition with the least inherit depth.) This example shows what the lookup strategies would find: class A { int foo() {} } class B { int foo() {} inherit A; } class C { inherit B; } class D { inherit B; inherit C; } Lookup of identifier "foo" in D():

e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas o Thread.Condition()->wait o Protocols.HTTP All methods in Protocols.HTTP that take a header mapping can now handle array values (signifying multiple headers of that type). o Protocols.LDAP.client The return code from all methods was changed to follow Pike's logic better. 0 is now a failure. The old behavior is emulated in a compatibility layer. o dirname Now correctly returns a directory instead of just stripping the part after the nearest directory separator. o LR LR has been moved to Parser.LR and the API has been changed. FIXME: More about this? o wmml documentation removed Use the documentation in the refdoc directory instead. o .build_lobotomize_crypto removed Use the Makefile target lobotomize_crypto to lobotomize Pike. Should preferably be executed in an unused tree straight from CVS. Compatibility changes without backward compatibility: ----------------------------------------------------- The folloing changes were considered bugs and have no backwards compatibility layer. o enum and typedef have implicit local binding enums and typedefs now always have static binding. In 7.2 they could sometimes be dynamically bound.
a3055d2002-11-24Marcus Agehall o Image.Layer modes modified.
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson  Alpha channel handling for modes add, subtract, multiply, divide, modulo, invsubtract, invdivide, invmodulo, difference, max, min, bitwise_and, bitwise_or, bitwise_xor, screen and overlay modified so that the source layer alpha channel copied to the destination layer alpha channel rather then mixed with the current layer alpha channel: aD=aS rather then the behavior before: aD=(aL+(1-aL)*aS) (which is the behavior of the 'normal' mode.) Bug fixes in the above modes so that alpha r,g,b channels
03360f2002-10-31Johan Sundström  are handled properly (separately).
e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas  Bug fixes in equal, not_equal, less, more, less_or_equal, and
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson  more_or_equal modes so that the alpha channel is handled as documented (which is, in fact, as above; aD=aS).
03360f2002-10-31Johan Sundström 
e2a7382002-11-24Peter Bortas  Bug fix in divide and invdivide to actually do what the modes are supposed to do (rather then just black the layer).
03360f2002-10-31Johan Sundström 
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson  And while on it, adding some modes:
03360f2002-10-31Johan Sundström 
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson  'imultiply' - D=(1-L)*S 'idivide' - D=S/(1-L) 'invidivide' - D=L/(1-S)
03360f2002-10-31Johan Sundström 
7ab1002002-10-31Martin Nilsson  'value_mul' - multiplying the source layer value
03360f2002-10-31Johan Sundström  (as in h,s,v) with the current layer value to the destination layer ("true burn").
