Mise à jour du changelog.

    1: * Tue Dec 18 2012 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.13 (RPL/2)
    2: - major bug is fixed in formateur(). When INT64_MIN was pushed into stack,
    3: internal value was good but RPL/2 was not able to correctly display
    4: this value. This bug comes from ABS as ABS(INT64_MIN) cannot be represented
    5: in integer. All abs(), fabs() and labs() present in source code have ben checked
    6: to avoid this kind of bug;
    7: - unformatted sockets are now usable as unformatted files;
    8: - BACKSPACE now runs on unformatted file;
    9: - major bug is fixed in BACKSPACE that didn't check if '"' characters were
   10: escaped;
   11: - CHARACTER*(n) format now counts escaped characters;
   12: - transliteration is avoid in rpl-core file generation to authorize core
   13: creation even if a transliteration error is caught;
   14: - major bug is fixed in evaluation(). System stack was not correctly
   15: destacked when execution error occurs;
   16: - major bug is fixed in READ (socket interface);
   17: - minor bug is fixed in analyse_flux().
   18: * Wed 27 2013 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.12 (RPL/2)

   41: calling thread;
   42: - static variables are now written in a variables tree;
   43: - major bug is fixed in STO intrinsic. STO returns an error when it has
   44: to create a global variable if intrinsic none (default) is set.

  117: - ncurses, sqlite and openssl have been upgraded;
  118: - major bug is fixed in ** (integer integer **) when first argument is equal to
  119: -1;
  120: - major bug is fixed in signal management. With new signal management, thread or
  121: process were not signalized anymore by POSIX signals. If a thread or a process
  122: was sleeping, it was not interrupted;
  123: - minor bug is fixed in OPEN intrinsic. Now, when a socket is open, its default
  124: adress is set to 0.0.0.0;

  130: Number of scalar operations per second and per core : 3809121.83444626
  131: schroedinger:[~/cvs/bench] > 
  132: - recherche_type() did not convert huge integer in real. Now,
  133: 18446744072742037448 is converted into real as value cannot be stored in
  134: RPL/2 integer type;
  135: - WFSOCK is modified to handle unconnected sockets;
  136: - REGEX is added;
  137: - RESTART is added (execvp() on main RPL/2 process);
  138: - copie_objet() now returns same MTX (struct_mutex) even if caller wait for
  139: a real copy. Now, struct_mutex contains locks owner. On Linux or Solaris (for
  140: example), it is possible to lock mutex from a thread and unlock the same mutex
  141: from another thread. On NetBSD, system crashes.
  142: * Mon Nov 21 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.4 (RPL/2)

  214: * Thu May 09 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.23 (RPL/2)
  215: - major bug is fixed in STD format (1E7 sq prints 1);
  216: - major bug is fixed in READ intrinsic (socket). This bug was introduced
  217: by a new feature in glibc.
  218: * Thu Apr 14 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.22 (RPL/2)
  219: - by default, RPL/2 uses "NONE" IMPLICIT when it's started in batch mode and
  220: "ALL" IMPLICIT when it runs in interactive mode;
  221: - when "NONE" IMPLICIT is set, STO intrinsic raises an error when it is used
  222: to create or modify a global variable. Now, with "NONE" IMPLICIT, you have
  223: to use SAVE to manipulate global variables;
  224: - replace erroneous TAB by TBL in evaluation() and formateur_fichier()
  225: subroutines;
  226: - fix major memory access violation in evaluation subroutine. Only occurs
  227: when 'X(i,j)' is evaluated on a matrix and when (i,j) points out of bounds;
  228: - fix major bug in evaluation subroutine. 'X(i)' returns execution error
  229: when X was a vector or a table.
  230: * Sun Apr 04 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.21 (RPL/2)
  231: - Gnuplot is upgraded;

  239: - new escape sequence is added to handle flow files (\x + hexadecimal code).
  240: Known escape sequences are \", \b, \n, \t, \x?? and \\.
  241: * Sun Mar 06 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.20 (RPL/2)
  242: - Ncurses is upgraded to 5.8;
  243: - ALARM is fixed by filling isdst field;
  244: - catch ECONNRESET in write intrinsic to return an execution error instead of
  245: system one;
  246: - fix a typo in HELP intrinsic;
  247: - Openssl is upgraded to 1.0.0d, sqlite to 3.7.5 and readline to 6.2;
  248: - Lapack is upgraded to 3.3.0;
  249: - libmtmalloc is now default Solaris allocator;
  250: - ncurses is upgraded;
  251: - regression introduced by 4.0.19 is fixed in signal management.
  252: Interruption1() could be called from itself and raises bus error (on sparc) or
  253: segmentation fault;
  254: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.4;
  255: - OpenSSL is upgraded to 1.0.0c;
  256: - syntax error is correctly checked ( (2+,0) does not crash RPL/2 anymore);

  258: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.4.2 due to major bugs.
  259: * Thu Sep 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.19 (RPL/2)
  260: - due to a very strange bug I've only seen on Solaris, ptmalloc3 is removed.
  261: Solaris libresolv randomly uses ptmalloc3 and system allocator and makes heap
  262: corruption. As internal memory management have been improved, a best fit
  263: allocator like ptmalloc3 is not required anymore;
  264: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.4.1;
  265: - deadlock is fixed in signal handlers: same mutex was used in standard
  266: subroutines (without protected sections by sigprocmask() or pthread_sigmask())
  267: and signal handlers. A new signal handler specific mutex is added;
  268: - minor bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. In { X 0 PI }, PI is a function
  269: that has to be evaluated by ->NUM;
  270: - rplfile build process is modify to be sure that rplfile is not modified
  271: after rpl build stage (to be sure that rplfile checksum is not modified after
  272: rpl compilation);
  273: - AWK is replaced by rplawk. rplawk is original awk written by Brian Kernighan,
  274: modified to remove yacc code and renamed;
  275: - some workarounds have been written to not use buggy klibc SystemV IPCS.
  276: ABORT now works on eComStation;
  277: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.2;
  278: - bug is fixed in software interrupts. When both process have different PID,
  279: parent process was not interrupted if it is not group master process. To fix
  280: this bug, SIGINJECT signal is not sent by child process but by control thread
  281: in parent process;
  282: - minor bug is fixed in data injection (POKE) that does not work as expected
  283: when child process is protected by NRPROC.
  284: * Thu Aug 26 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.18 (RPL/2)
  285: - --enable-sysv-sems is added to configure script to use SystemV semaphores
  286: functions instead of POSIX functions. This function is disabled or forced on
  287: systems that does not provide correct POSIX or SysV semaphores subsystem;
  288: - a dirty but not quick patch is written to workaround broken siginfo
  289: structures. This patch has been successfully tested. It uses a segment of
  290: shared memory (Posix or SysV) and some semaphores (Posix or SysV) by process
  291: (Unix PID);
  292: - some OpenBSD's hacks are added;
  293: - broken siginfo->si_pid field is now checked by configure script;
  294: - SWI now sends SIGCONT to interrupted process to start interrupt without delay;
  295: - random generator is cloned by SPAWN;
  296: - in transliteration subroutine : '\r' is added after all '\n' in OS/2 port;
  297: - getaddrinfo is hardcoded when host system does not provide getaddrinfo
  298: or freeaddrinfo;
  299: - RPL/2 can now use SystemV semaphores when POSIX semaphores are unavailable;
  300: - major bug is fixed in CHR intrinsic when obtained character is not printable;
  301: - Lapack is upgraded to 3.2.2;
  302: - OS/2 (eComStation 2.0 with EMX 0.9d) support is added;
  303: - TOKENIZE is now able to convert escape sequences;
  304: - ATPOKE and CLRATPOKE new intrinsics are added;
  305: - --enable-full-static configure flag is added. With this flag, mysql and
  306: postgresql libraries are statically linked in rpl executable;
  307: - units Makefile is modified to avoid readline and ncurses usages;
  308: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.0.1;
  309: - units is upgraded to 1.88;
  310: - another major bug is fixed in the same variable creation subroutine.
  311: Level 0 and 1 variables adresses were swapped when a global variable masked
  312: a name of RPL/2 routine;
  313: - major bug is fixed in global variable creation subroutine. When a global
  314: variable was created and when a local variable existed with the same name,
  315: computed address of global variable was wrong;
  316: - src/Makefile.am is modified to avoid a bug on several systems. libptmalloc3
  317: is forced in front of all libraries.
  318: * Tue Jul 13 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.17 (RPL/2)
  319: - BACKTRACE intrinsic is added;
  320: - major bug is fixed in SELECT/DEFAULT/END conditional structure. Only occurs
  321: when this structure is included in IFERR/THEN/END structure and when an error is
  322: caught;
  323: - major bug is fixed in analyse() subroutine. When evaluation() returned error
  324: in a compiled program, analyse() caught this error twice and randomly aborted
  325: with a segmentation error;
  326: - TRIM and TOKENIZE replace both '\n' and '\t' by regular spaces;
  327: - ATEXIT subroutine begins with an implicit CSTOP to avoid multiple stop
  328: signals;
  329: - memory leak is fixed in ROW+. It only occurs when a row is added to an empty
  330: matrix.
  331: * Thu Jun 24 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.16 (RPL/2)
  332: - minor bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. With this patch, same program
  333: returns same result with or without -p flag;

  335: - openssl is upgraded to 1.0.0a;
  336: - interrupt stacks are now FIFO instead of LIFO;
  337: - debug memory allocation subroutines are improved to run in multithreaded
  338: programs;
  339: - some memory leaks are fixed in process management (SPAWN and DETACH);
  340: - version verification is added to shared objects;
  341: - -D_GNU_SOURCE is added to ptmalloc3 makefile to avoid a major bug on 64 bits
  342: linux (false mremap() prototype);
  343: - major bug is fixed in rpliconv. getc() returns an int, not a unsigned char.
  344: * Sun May 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.15 (RPL/2)
  345: - all '-' are replaced by '_' in random generator list;
  346: - minor memory leak is fixed in OPEN intrinsic (socket);
  347: - major bug is fixed in IFERR structure. Only occurs in compiled program;
  348: - major bug is fixed in copie_objet() and liberation(). Only concerns
  349: format in FCH (file descriptor) and SCK (socket descriptor);
  350: - debug routines are improved;
  351: - PROCID is added;
  352: - MEMLOCK and MEMUNLOCK are added. MEMLOCK forces a process to remain in memory
  353: and to not use swap;
  354: - major bug is fixed in sql support. SQL connections were closed in all chield
  355: process;
  356: - standard allocator (malloc()/free()) is replaced by ptmalloc3 due to some bugs
  357: discovered in Solaris thread safe allocators (libmalloc and libumem) that
  358: are first fit class allocators. Solaris libmtmalloc works better and is
  359: a best fit class allocator but its performance is poor than ptmalloc3
  360: performance;
  361: - major bug is fixed in ROW+ intrinsic (new row was not added where it
  362: should);
  363: - minor bugs are fixed in interruptions.c (semaphores values when error is
  364: caught);
  365: - major bug is fixed in STOP intrinsic. STOP was unable to stop any process
  366: created by SPAWN;
  367: - SIGFABORT is added. When process receives SIGFSTOP, it tries to execute
  368: ATEXIT. If it receives SIGFABORT, it does not;
  369: - ONEXIT is renamed in ATEXIT;
  370: - ONEXIT new intrinsic is added.
  371: * Wed Apr 21 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.14 (RPL/2)
  372: - major bug is fixed in static and shared variables initialization subroutine.
  373: This bug only occurs when RPL/2 tries to create a shared or static variable
  374: from an expression;
  375: - major bug is fixed in copie_etat_processus(). A field that contains
  376: information about shared variable was not copied to new processus structure;
  377: - some little memory leaks are fixed in evaluation(), recherche_type() and
  378: sequenceur(). They only occured when syntax error were caught;
  379: - IMPLICIT causes execution error instead system error;
  380: - Hurd support is improved but currently broken because Hurd does not support
  381: SIG_INFO. Work in progress;
  382: - OpenBSD specific support is removed from sources;
  383: - support for Mac OS X and Windows/Cygwin is added.
  384: * Wed Apr 07 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.13 (RPL/2)

  423: * Tue Mar 09 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.12 (RPL/2)
  424: - in formatted file, string format returned a variable length string even if
  425: format was 'CHARACTER*(n)' (n characters string). Now, 'CHARACTER*(*)' returns
  426: a variable length string and 'CHARACTER*(n)' a fixed length string;
  427: - keyed access files support is added. Currently, only formatted files are
  428: supported;
  429: - direct access files support is added. Currenlty, these files can only be used
  430: in formatted mode;

  435: - RPL/2 tools (rpliconv, rplfile, rplpp and rplconvert) are now checked before
  436: each execution (md5 and sha1 sums) to enhance security. If one of these tools
  437: have been modified between RPL/2 compilation and current execution, RPL/2 aborts
  438: on a non recoverable system error;
  439: - openssl and sqlite3 libraries are added;
  440: - RPL_HOME env variable is added. When RPL/2 is called from librpl, this
  441: variable indicates RPL/2 root directory. If it is not set, root path
  442: is given by configure script (d_exec_path);
  443: * Thu Mar 03 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.11 (RPL/2)
  444: - configure.in and makefile.am's are modified to add Cygwin support. Interix

  476: * Fri Jan 08 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.8 (RPL/2)
  477: - minor bug is fixed in DAEMON intrinsic. When a program was daemonized, all
  478: signals sent to main process were not caught because DAEMON did not replace
  479: old pid by new one;
  480: - major bug is fixed in IFERR/THEN/ELSE/END. Only occurs in expression
  481: evaluation when an error is reported from a subroutine in another subroutine.
  482: For example, error was not caught in following program when it is executed with
  483: -p option :
  484:     TEST << iferr TEST2 then end >>
  485:     TEST2 << 0 inv >>
  486: - major bug is fixed in variable management. Some local variables were
  487: seen as global ones;

  491: - major bug is fixed in SAME intrinsic : << 1 >> DUP SAME and 'E' DUP SAME
  492: returned false ;
  493: - major bug is fixed in RETURN intrinsic. It only occurs in compiled
  494: programs;
  495: - major bug is fixed in NEG intrinsic. NEG did not make a copy of its arguments;
  496: - regression is fixed in compilation(). "\\" was analysed as '"' '\' '\"' and

  500: - major bug is fixed in -A command line option (NULL character is missing);
  501: - minor bug is fixed in rpliconv and RECODE intrinsic. All transliterations are
  502: made by blocks (1024 bytes). When an incomplete multibyte sequence is
  503: encountered at end of block, subroutine aborts with an execution error;
  504: - major bug is fixed in OPEN (TCP/IPv4 sockets).
  505: * Mon Nov 30 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.7 (RPL/2)
  506: - DISP now locks stdout;
  507: - rpliconv is added to replace standard iconv provided by operating system.
  508: Indeed, conversion between different encodages requires transliteration
  509: that is not offered by some iconv utility;
  510: - CURRENC and RECODE intrinsics have been written to allow strings conversions;
  511: - bug is fixed in SYSEVAL. When execvp() returns (for example when arg[0] can

  513: - fprintf is replaced by some functions that allow transliterations between
  514: locales;
  515: - '"' can now be used in strings ("\"");
  516: - iconv is called with -c in preprocessor stage. It is done to write
  517: CGI scripts with RPL/2 because locale charset is set to ANSI_X3.4-1968;
  518: - double free is fixed in liberation() (type SQL, only occurs when locale is
  519: set);
  520: - LOCALIZATION, UCASE and LCASE are added;
  521: - major bug is fixed in EXIT intrinsic that was able to return a false
  522: execution error in compiled scripts (only in DO/UNTIL and REPEAT/WHILE loops);
  523: - major bug is fixed in wrapper_instruction_intrinseque(). When intrinsic() was
  524: used in onLoading from shared library, USE was pushed on stack as algebraic
  525: expression;
  526: - libiconv is upgraded to 1.13.1;
  527: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.2.6;
  528: - gsl is upgraded to 1.13.

  530: - pipe() is overwritten by a macro to avoid a system error. Communication
  531: between process are done with pipes and these pipes are managed by a
  532: specific asynchrone thread. If a script try to create more threads than
  533: management thread can destroy, you can quickly achieve maximum number of
  534: opened files and pipe() shall return a system error. This macro tries to create
  535: pipes. If pipe() function returns an error, macro waits and retries. If
  536: number of retries is greater than a hardcoded value, macro returns an error;
  537: - major bug (deadlock) is fixed in process and thread management. I hope
  538: this bug shall be the last one;
  539: - major bug is fixed in DET intrinsic (determinant was computed without LU
  540: diagonalization);
  541: - SWAPCNTXT is added;
  542: - minor bug is fixed in Makefile.am (licences rule).
  543: * Wed Sep 09 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.5 (RPL/2)

  545: - all process management is rewritten to avoid usage of defunct process
  546: or thread number;
  547: - new major bug is fixed in interruptions.c. Sometimes, when retrait_thread()
  548: was called before a pending interruption5 (SIGFSTOP), signal handler uses
  549: a freed semaphore and corrupts heap;
  550: - CLRERR is added to erase previous errors;
  551: - ERRN and ERRM return exception message and number;
  552: - major bug is fixed in interruptions.c. All signal are now bufferised
  553: when semaphore_liste_threads is null to avoid deadlock. This bug only
  554: occured when STOP was sent to a dying thread or process (when this thread or
  555: process was running retrait_thread());
  556: - matrix rank is computed before matrix inversion;
  557: - file locks are added to stdin and stdout. stderr is not locked because
  558: all messages written by signal handlers are sent to stderr;
  559: - configure.in script is modified to test gcc version and avoid a bug in

  633: SIGFSTP (with a nullified siginfo structure) instead of SIGHUP when control
  634: process is killed;
  635: - abs() macro is modified to avoid multiple evaluation. Your C compiler has to
  636: know typeof() intrinsic function. This function is not standard but exists
  637: under Sun Studio, gcc, and maybe some others compilers. If this function does
  638: not exist on your compiler, you can change its definition by old one in
  639: src/rpl.h;

  662: deadlock when a huge amount of threads is launched);
  663: - minor bug is fixed in boath START and FOR intrinsic. Only occurs when
  664: arguments types are unsupported;
  665: - PLOT instrinsic is added (usage: LINE and MARK do not draw anything. All

  677: - YIELD intrinsic is added;
  678: - ERRM is fixed. In some cases, ERRM uses some uninitialized pointers;
  679: - SHARED and PRIVATE intrinsics have been added. A shared variable is a
  680: static variable that is shared by multiple threads;
  681: - '->' intrinsic is improved. All object copies have been avoided;
  682: - -n flag is added to catch HUP signal. stderr and stdout are redirected
  683: to a file, stdin is redirected to /dev/null when control process is killed;
  684: - a mutex is added to each object (before this modification,
  685: RPL/2 used a global mutex and performances in multithreaded programs were very
  686: poor.);
  687: - ALARM is now interruptible;
  688: - both PUT and PUTI intrinsics are improved and do not copy list and table
  689: when nombre_occurrences == 1;

  700: in three new intrinsics : SQLCONNECT, SQLQUERY and SQLDISCONNECT. Please note
  701: that all programs that worked with old SQL intrinsic can now work with
  702: SQLQUERY. With all new programs, you can open a real connection to databases;
  703: - NRPROC is added. This new intrinsic is used to catch error from child
  704: process. Without NRPROC, any errors returned by child process cause
  705: main process to abort;
  706: - SPAWN is added. This new intrinsic is used to launch a new thread (DETACH
  707: starts a new process). There are no mutexes in RPL/2 because all spawned process
  708: use specific context. Nevertheless, shared variables and associated mutexes
  709: should be added;
  710: - -D flag and DAEMONIZE intrinsic have been added;
  711: - REPEAT, THEN, ELSE and ELSEIF intrinsics are rewritten to be more efficient;

 1003: - HELP function is rewritten to be more friendly (a la OpenVMS);
 1004: - external wrapper (rplplot) is written to force usage of gnuplot provided
 1005: by RPL/2 if it is built during build process. If this build does not exist,
 1006: it tries to launch regular gnuplot;
 1007: - gnuplot is added to source tree to avoid some trouble between preinstalled
 1008: gnuplot and release used by RPL/2. This addition to source tree is
 1009: required by some incompatibility between gnuplot releases;

 1059: or purge actions. New PARAMETER and VARIABLE intrinsics are modified
 1060: versions of PROTECT and UNPROTECT that only deal with global variables
 1061: (see RCL/SAVE);
 1062: - variable management routines have been rewritten. The new ones are
 1063: uncompatible with the old ones. Before these changes, a local variable

 1452: - man pages are updated;
 1453: - evaluation() is modified to perform evaluation of expressions that contain
 1454: '=';
 1455: - a minor bug is fixed in AXES intrinsic;
 1456: - a minor bug is fixed in DRAW intrinsic (2D and 3D graphics were able to
 1457: appear on the same figure). The same mistake is fixed in DRWS intrinsic;
 1458: - LAST is disabled in evaluation subroutine (EVAL and ->NUM intrinsics).
 1459: * Sun May 18 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6j (RPL/2)
 1460: - SLICE intrinsic is added. It is used to draw 3D graphics as contour lines;
 1461: - PLOTTER is added to draw statistical clouds with lines;
 1462: - C and H source files now include vim parameters;
 1463: - vim syntax file is modified to include new intrinsics;
 1464: - static archive is modified to include all required libraries needed by
 1465: RPL/2.
 1466: * Sun May 4 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6i (RPL/2)
 1467: - '=' is added and tested;
 1468: - XCOL and YCOL are added;
 1469: - a minor bug in analyse_syntaxique() is fixed;
 1470: - THEN is modified to return an error when ELSE appears in a CASE/THEN/END
 1471: structure. ELSE is modified to return an error when ELSE appears in
 1472: an ELSE/END structure;
 1473: - a major bug is fixed in CYCLE;
 1474: - EXIT is written. When EXIT appears in a defined loop (FOR or START), the
 1475: sequencer continues after the end of this loop;
 1476: - SCLS is added;
 1477: - DRWS now uses COLS to draw 2D graphics;
 1478: - PPAR and SPAR are written. SPAR returns a list that contains the
 1479: size of the statistical matrix (or "UNAVALAIBLE" if there is any
 1480: statistical variable, or "DISABLED" if its type is not one of the type of
 1481: a statistical matrix.) and XCOL and YCOL parameters. Warning: [[]] SIZE
 1482: returns { 1 0 } and it is not a bug, because a null matrix contains _one_
 1483: null line ! Thus, [[]] STOS SPAR returns { { 1 0 } 1 2 };
 1484: - EXTERNAL intrinsic is added. Warning: by default, extern functions are
 1485: disabled. Arguments of EXTERNAL are case sensitive because the external
 1486: interface is written in C. { ext_sinus } EXTERNAL does not replace the list
 1487: of known external functions but add the new list to the last. { "all" }
 1488: EXTERNAL allows all external functions and { "none" } EXTERNAL removes all
 1489: external names of the known functions;
 1490: - mkrplso.in is modified.
 1491: * Sun Apr 20 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6h (RPL/2)
 1492: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1493: - a minor mistake is fixed in recherche_instruction_suivante();
 1494: - some minor memory leaks are fixed in recherche_type() function. They only
 1495: occurs when a syntax error is detected;
 1496: - #error and #warning preprocessor macros are added;
 1497: - INCR and DECR are written (with integer or variable argument);
 1498: - CSWP and RSWP are added and tested;
 1499: - a minor bug is fixed in analyse.c;
 1500: - DEBIAN/control is added to build debian package;
 1501: - SCALE is fixed and improved ("automatic" keyword);
 1502: - PUTC and PUTR new intrinsics are added.
 1503: * Sun Apr 13 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6g (RPL/2)
 1504: - a very minor bug is fixed in VISIT intrinsic. It only occurs when
 1505: VISIT does not find a name in level 1;
 1506: - configure.in script is modified to add a new test (--enable-debug
 1507: flag). Configured with this fleg, RPL/2 will be built with electric-fences;
 1508: - GETR (get row[s]) and GETC (get column[s]) are added. These new instructions
 1509: extract a part of a matrix. Syntax: [[ 1 2 3 ][ 2 3 4 ]] { 1 } GETR or
 1510: 'MATRIX' { 2 2 3 } GETR;
 1511: - LOGSCALE intrinsic is improved and now, it can be used as
 1512: { "main" "auxiliary" X Y } LOGSCALE;
 1513: - SCALE intrinsic is used to fix the limits of a graphic. Its syntax is the
 1514: same than AXES:
 1515: { { 60 "ticsonly" 2 } { "automatic" "ticsonly" 10 } } axes
 1516: { "auxiliary" { 60 "ticsonly" "default" } { "automatic" } } axes
 1517: { { -10 10 } "automatic" } SCALE.
 1518: Warning, it is not possible to ask a logarithmic scale with this intrinsic
 1519: because it changes only the dimension of the screen. To have a logarithmic
 1520: scale, you must use LOGSCALE intrinsic:
 1521: { X } LOGSCALE gives a semi-log screen, { "auxiliary" X Y } gives a log-log
 1522: screen on second scale;
 1523: - { X X } autoscale and { Y Y } logscale are now invalid;
 1524: - *D is added (depth multiplication, for 3D graphics);
 1525: - a new intrinsic (*S) is added. It changes the scale of a graphic (X, Y
 1526: and Z axes). The result of *S is the same than DUP DUP *H *W *D;
 1527: - a major bug is fixed in GETI instrinsic when it is used with a name
 1528: that contains a matrix or a vector (bad upper bounds conditions in
 1529: incrementation);
 1530: - DISP intrinsic now uses the 33-th flag. When it is not set
 1531: (default), a final carriage return is sent to the terminal;
 1532: - AXES intrinsic only takes a list that can contains the keywork
 1533: "main" or "auxiliary". Before this modification, this keyword was in
 1534: the first stack level;
 1535: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1536: - in appel_gnuplot(), stdin is closed when gnuplot is called with -raise
 1537: option;
 1538: - LAST is now disabled in the main loop of INT intrinsic;
 1539: - expm1 and lnp1 are rewritten to use expm1 and log1p from math.h.
 1540: * Sun Apr 6 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6f (RPL/2)
 1541: - a major bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. It occurs with DRAW
 1542: intrinsic when the equation cannot be evaluated (for example 'SIN(X)/X'
 1543: in 0);
 1544: - LAST is disabled in the main loop of DRAW intrinsic;
 1545: - a major bug is fixed in DRAW intrinsic. When an error occurs in the
 1546: evaluation of an equation, the system stack is returned corrupted to the
 1547: sequencer;
 1548: - the same minor bug is fixed in FOR and START. It only occurs when the limits
 1549: of a loop are not integer or real.
 1550: * Sun Mar 31 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6e (RPL/2)
 1551: - the compilation stage aborts with an error message when two definitions
 1552: have the same name. To improve the compilation() subroutine, I have to
 1553: add some tests in gestion_variables.c;
 1554: - recherche_type() subroutine ad some other connex subroutines are improved.
 1555: Now, some syntax errors about object are caught and do not perform sequencer
 1556: hangup;

 1558: - Makefile.am's and configure.in scripts are improved.
 1559: * Fri Mar 14 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6d (RPL/2)
 1560: - DRWS intrinsic is written. Two datastyles are associated: SCATTER (2D
 1561: and 3D) and HISTOGRAM (only 2D, but 3 columns are accepted, the third shown
 1562: the boxwidth, 1 by default);
 1563: - recherche_type() is rewritten to be faster;
 1564: - gsl is upgraded (release 1.3);
 1565: - ncurses is upgraded and patched (release 5.3);
 1566: - recherche_instruction_suivante() is fixed (string research with included
 1567: '"') and rewritten to be faster;

 1578: - a minor bug is fixed in evaluation subroutine;
 1579: - vim syntax file is improved;
 1580: - DRAW (wireframe section) is fixed. When an error occurs in the evaluation
 1581: of a 3D-graphic (for example 'SIN(R)/R' with 'R=SQRT(X**2+Y**2)' in X=0 and
 1582: Y=0), no graph was procuced (it results from a bug in gnuplot, and this fix
 1583: is a quick and dirty workaround...);
 1584: - RETURN intrinsic is modified to fix a trouble in interactive mode;
 1585: - rplconvert is improved.
 1586: * Sun Dec 22 2002 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6a (RPL/2)
