pike.git/CHANGES:16:    been deployed during the last year. Manual dumps are published on    http://pike.ida.liu.se/docs/reference/.      o pike -x    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).    + o pike -e scope +  When running command line one liners with pike -e you can now +  access the numer of arguments, the actual arguments and the +  environment variables through the variables argc, argv and env. +    o unbug    Embryo of a Pike debugger. Not stable nor finished.      o Unicode 3.2.0    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    upper_case/lower_case. unicode_to_string() also has support for    surrogate and byteorder mark handling.      o Extended random()
pike.git/CHANGES:45:    Both of these methods now handle both looking for strings and    integers (the unicode number for a single character).    Examples: search("hi, ho!", '!'), has_value("Nope.", ' ')      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.    + 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.    -  + o basetype(foo) +  Returns a string with the basic type of foo as opposed to +  typeof(foo) that returns the actual type. Also available as +  sprintf("%t", foo). +  + o getenv()/putenv() +  The environment variable functions getenv and putenv is now is now +  both case insensitive on Microsoft Windows systems. This should +  make your programs more portable. +  +    Language additions:   -------------------      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:   
pike.git/CHANGES:225:   o UNDEFINED    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.      o _m_delete    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. -  - o basetype(foo) -  Returns a string with the basic type of foo as opposed to -  typeof(foo) that returns the actual type. Also available as -  sprintf("%t", foo). -  +    o Constant objects    An object can now be constant, allowing for better -  performace. For example used for Gmp.Bignum, Math.Matrix and -  Image.Color. +  performace and better dumping. For example used for Gmp.Bignum, +  Math.Matrix and Image.Color.         New modules / classes / methods / functionality added:   ------------------------------------------------------      o ADT.History    ADT implementation of a "leaking stack". Hilfe example:    > object h=ADT.History(3);    > for(int i=17; i<22; i++) h->push(i);    Ok.
pike.git/CHANGES:300:   o Debug.Tracer   o Debug.Subject    Helper classes that helps in understanding what Pike is doing.      o DVB    Access to DVB (digital sat) resources. Controls tuner, MP2    audio and video decoders. Allows extract multiple channels    at once.    Note: Only old 0.9.4 DVB API is supported.    + o Gz.File +  Pike can now compress and decompress the Gzip format. This is +  still a bit experimental but the basic functions should work +  just fine. +  + o HTTP.Server +  A simple HTTP Server. +  + o Image.Dims +  Can extract the dimensions of an image with a minimal amount of +  data loading. Currently handles JPEG, GIF and PNG images. Hilfe +  example: +  > Image.Dims.get(Stdio.File("test.gif")); +  (1) Result: ({ /* 2 elements */ +  1412, +  1120 +  }) +  + o Image.DWG +  Decodes the thumbnail images embedded in AutoCAD drawings. +  + o Image.Fonts +  High level API for font handling. Should be used instead of +  accessing the FreeType, TTF and Image.Font modules directly. +  + o Image.Image +  Added two new methods: blur() and grey_blur(). +  + o Image.JPEG +  Support for lossless transforms and handling of metadata. +  + o Image.PVR +  VQ compression/decompression added. +  + o Image.SVG +  Support for Structured Vector Graphics through the Gnome SVG +  library. Requires Gnome 2. +    o Locale.Language    FIXME: nilsson?      o Math.Matrix    Methods sum(), max(), min(), convolve() and dot_product() added.      o Math.Transforms    Glue for supporting FFT and iFFT via libfftw and librfftw.      o Math
