pike.git/CHANGES:1:   Changes since Pike 7.6:   ----------------------------------------------------------------------    + o New syntax to index from the end in range operations. +  A "<" can be added before an index in the [..] operator to count +  from the end instead. This is convenient to e.g. chop off the last +  element in an array: a[..<1]. +  + o New `[..] operator function. +  Range operations have been separated from the `[] operator function +  and is handled by a new `[..] which provides greater control in how +  the range bounds are specified. For compatibility, if there is no +  `[..] then `[] is still called for range operations. +    o Stdio.*    Stdio.cp can now work recursively in a directory tree.    Stdio.cp now keeps permissions when copying.    Added Stdio.recursive_mv which works on every OS and also when the    destination isn't on the same filesystem as the source.      o Process.popen    Process.popen is now able to run in nonblocking mode. If a second    argument is provided a file object will be opened with that mode    and return, enabling two way communication with the new process.      o bin/precompile.pike    Voidable pointer types are no longer promoted to mixed.      o PIKE_PORTABLE_BYTECODE    --with-portable-bytecode is now the default. Pike programs that have    been dumped on one architecture now can be decoded on another.
