    1: * Tue Dec 18 2012 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.13 (RPL/2)
    2: - minor bug is fixed in TOKENIZE intrinsic instruction. TOKENIZE did not work on
    3: a copy of input string;
    4: - major bug (segfault) is fixed in liste_variables(). It only occurs
    5: when this function is called with shared variables;
    6: - all internal data are now stored in 64 bits wide integers (even is 32 bits
    7: ABI is selected);
    8: - major bug is fixed in recherche_instruction_suivante(). In some
    9: circumstances, this function can return a spurious error;
   10: - new NATIVE*(*) data format is added. By default, native*(*) is used
   11: to write data without precision loss. It can also be used to write
   12: complex objects like expressions, lists or tables;
   13: - major bug is fixed in formateur(). When INT64_MIN was pushed into stack,
   14: internal value was good but RPL/2 was not able to correctly display
   15: this value. This bug comes from ABS as ABS(INT64_MIN) cannot be represented
   16: in integer. All abs(), fabs() and labs() present in source code have ben checked
   17: to avoid this kind of bug;
   18: - unformatted sockets are now usable as unformatted files;
   19: - BACKSPACE now runs on unformatted file;
   20: - major bug is fixed in BACKSPACE that didn't check if '"' characters were
   21: escaped;
   22: - CHARACTER*(n) format now counts escaped characters;
   23: - transliteration is avoid in rpl-core file generation to authorize core
   24: creation even if a transliteration error is caught;
   25: - major bug is fixed in evaluation(). System stack was not correctly
   26: destacked when execution error occurs;
   27: - major bug is fixed in READ (socket interface);
   28: - minor bug is fixed in analyse_flux().
   29: * Wed 27 2013 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.12 (RPL/2)
   30: - bug is fixed in recherche_type(). { "\"" } was not evaluated as expected
   31: as inner quote was not escaped;

   33: encryption;
   34: - CBC-CMAC digest is added;
   35: - HMAC digest is added;
   36: - DIGEST intrinsic is added;

   49: - sem_wait() has to catch EINTR in thread_surveillance_signaux();
   50: - signal management is rewritten to avoid a strange bug on NetBSD. On NetBSD,
   51: a signal handler can be called within a special thread and not in the
   52: calling thread;
   53: - static variables are now written in a variables tree;
   54: - major bug is fixed in STO intrinsic. STO returns an error when it has
   55: to create a global variable if intrinsic none (default) is set.
   56: * Mon Oct 1 2012 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.10 (RPL/2)
   57: - FORALL intrinsic is added;
   58: - major bug (deadlock) is fixed in CYCLE. Only occurs when CYCLE is called to
   59: interrupt a loop from a subroutine within a compiled programm;
   60: - workaround to avoid strange bug on slow network is written in READ
   61: intrinsic;
   62: - CRITICAL/END structure is added. When program enters in a critical
   63: section, all other threads of the same process sleep until program leaves

  128: - ncurses, sqlite and openssl have been upgraded;
  129: - major bug is fixed in ** (integer integer **) when first argument is equal to
  130: -1;
  131: - major bug is fixed in signal management. With new signal management, thread or
  132: process were not signalized anymore by POSIX signals. If a thread or a process
  133: was sleeping, it was not interrupted;
  134: - minor bug is fixed in OPEN intrinsic. Now, when a socket is open, its default
  135: adress is set to 0.0.0.0;

  141: Number of scalar operations per second and per core : 3809121.83444626
  142: schroedinger:[~/cvs/bench] > 
  143: - recherche_type() did not convert huge integer in real. Now,
  144: 18446744072742037448 is converted into real as value cannot be stored in
  145: RPL/2 integer type;
  146: - WFSOCK is modified to handle unconnected sockets;
  147: - REGEX is added;
  148: - RESTART is added (execvp() on main RPL/2 process);
  149: - copie_objet() now returns same MTX (struct_mutex) even if caller wait for
  150: a real copy. Now, struct_mutex contains locks owner. On Linux or Solaris (for
  151: example), it is possible to lock mutex from a thread and unlock the same mutex
  152: from another thread. On NetBSD, system crashes.
  153: * Mon Nov 21 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.1.4 (RPL/2)

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

  252: * Sun Mar 06 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.20 (RPL/2)
  253: - Ncurses is upgraded to 5.8;
  254: - ALARM is fixed by filling isdst field;
  255: - catch ECONNRESET in write intrinsic to return an execution error instead of
  256: system one;
  257: - fix a typo in HELP intrinsic;
  258: - Openssl is upgraded to 1.0.0d, sqlite to 3.7.5 and readline to 6.2;
  259: - Lapack is upgraded to 3.3.0;

  261: - ncurses is upgraded;
  262: - regression introduced by 4.0.19 is fixed in signal management.
  263: Interruption1() could be called from itself and raises bus error (on sparc) or
  264: segmentation fault;
  265: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.4;
  266: - OpenSSL is upgraded to 1.0.0c;

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

  349: programs;
  350: - some memory leaks are fixed in process management (SPAWN and DETACH);
  351: - version verification is added to shared objects;
  352: - -D_GNU_SOURCE is added to ptmalloc3 makefile to avoid a major bug on 64 bits
  353: linux (false mremap() prototype);
  354: - major bug is fixed in rpliconv. getc() returns an int, not a unsigned char.
  355: * Sun May 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.15 (RPL/2)
  356: - all '-' are replaced by '_' in random generator list;
  357: - minor memory leak is fixed in OPEN intrinsic (socket);
  358: - major bug is fixed in IFERR structure. Only occurs in compiled program;

  361: - debug routines are improved;
  362: - PROCID is added;
  363: - MEMLOCK and MEMUNLOCK are added. MEMLOCK forces a process to remain in memory
  364: and to not use swap;
  365: - major bug is fixed in sql support. SQL connections were closed in all chield
  366: process;
  367: - standard allocator (malloc()/free()) is replaced by ptmalloc3 due to some bugs
  368: discovered in Solaris thread safe allocators (libmalloc and libumem) that
  369: are first fit class allocators. Solaris libmtmalloc works better and is
  370: a best fit class allocator but its performance is poor than ptmalloc3
  371: performance;
  372: - major bug is fixed in ROW+ intrinsic (new row was not added where it
  373: should);
  374: - minor bugs are fixed in interruptions.c (semaphores values when error is
  375: caught);
  376: - major bug is fixed in STOP intrinsic. STOP was unable to stop any process
  377: created by SPAWN;
  378: - SIGFABORT is added. When process receives SIGFSTOP, it tries to execute
  379: ATEXIT. If it receives SIGFABORT, it does not;
  380: - ONEXIT is renamed in ATEXIT;
  381: - ONEXIT new intrinsic is added.
  382: * Wed Apr 21 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.14 (RPL/2)

  384: This bug only occurs when RPL/2 tries to create a shared or static variable
  385: from an expression;
  386: - major bug is fixed in copie_etat_processus(). A field that contains
  387: information about shared variable was not copied to new processus structure;
  388: - some little memory leaks are fixed in evaluation(), recherche_type() and
  389: sequenceur(). They only occured when syntax error were caught;
  390: - IMPLICIT causes execution error instead system error;
  391: - Hurd support is improved but currently broken because Hurd does not support
  392: SIG_INFO. Work in progress;
  393: - OpenBSD specific support is removed from sources;
  394: - support for Mac OS X and Windows/Cygwin is added.
  395: * Wed Apr 07 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.13 (RPL/2)

  433: rplc (RPL/2 compiler).
  434: * Tue Mar 09 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.12 (RPL/2)
  435: - in formatted file, string format returned a variable length string even if
  436: format was 'CHARACTER*(n)' (n characters string). Now, 'CHARACTER*(*)' returns
  437: a variable length string and 'CHARACTER*(n)' a fixed length string;
  438: - keyed access files support is added. Currently, only formatted files are
  439: supported;
  440: - direct access files support is added. Currenlty, these files can only be used
  441: in formatted mode;

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

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

  502: - major bug is fixed in SAME intrinsic : << 1 >> DUP SAME and 'E' DUP SAME
  503: returned false ;
  504: - major bug is fixed in RETURN intrinsic. It only occurs in compiled
  505: programs;
  506: - major bug is fixed in NEG intrinsic. NEG did not make a copy of its arguments;
  507: - regression is fixed in compilation(). "\\" was analysed as '"' '\' '\"' and

  511: - major bug is fixed in -A command line option (NULL character is missing);
  512: - minor bug is fixed in rpliconv and RECODE intrinsic. All transliterations are
  513: made by blocks (1024 bytes). When an incomplete multibyte sequence is
  514: encountered at end of block, subroutine aborts with an execution error;
  515: - major bug is fixed in OPEN (TCP/IPv4 sockets).
  516: * Mon Nov 30 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.7 (RPL/2)
  517: - DISP now locks stdout;
  518: - rpliconv is added to replace standard iconv provided by operating system.
  519: Indeed, conversion between different encodages requires transliteration
  520: that is not offered by some iconv utility;
  521: - CURRENC and RECODE intrinsics have been written to allow strings conversions;
  522: - bug is fixed in SYSEVAL. When execvp() returns (for example when arg[0] can
  523: not be found), SYSEVAL enters in a dead lock;
  524: - fprintf is replaced by some functions that allow transliterations between
  525: locales;
  526: - '"' can now be used in strings ("\"");
  527: - iconv is called with -c in preprocessor stage. It is done to write
  528: CGI scripts with RPL/2 because locale charset is set to ANSI_X3.4-1968;
  529: - double free is fixed in liberation() (type SQL, only occurs when locale is
  530: set);
  531: - LOCALIZATION, UCASE and LCASE are added;
  532: - major bug is fixed in EXIT intrinsic that was able to return a false
  533: execution error in compiled scripts (only in DO/UNTIL and REPEAT/WHILE loops);
  534: - major bug is fixed in wrapper_instruction_intrinseque(). When intrinsic() was
  535: used in onLoading from shared library, USE was pushed on stack as algebraic
  536: expression;
  537: - libiconv is upgraded to 1.13.1;
  538: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.2.6;
  539: - gsl is upgraded to 1.13.
  540: * Mon Sep 28 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.6 (RPL/2)
  541: - pipe() is overwritten by a macro to avoid a system error. Communication
  542: between process are done with pipes and these pipes are managed by a
  543: specific asynchrone thread. If a script try to create more threads than
  544: management thread can destroy, you can quickly achieve maximum number of
  545: opened files and pipe() shall return a system error. This macro tries to create
  546: pipes. If pipe() function returns an error, macro waits and retries. If
  547: number of retries is greater than a hardcoded value, macro returns an error;
  548: - major bug (deadlock) is fixed in process and thread management. I hope
  549: this bug shall be the last one;
  550: - major bug is fixed in DET intrinsic (determinant was computed without LU
  551: diagonalization);
  552: - SWAPCNTXT is added;
  553: - minor bug is fixed in Makefile.am (licences rule).
  554: * Wed Sep 09 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.5 (RPL/2)

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

  644: SIGFSTP (with a nullified siginfo structure) instead of SIGHUP when control
  645: process is killed;
  646: - abs() macro is modified to avoid multiple evaluation. Your C compiler has to
  647: know typeof() intrinsic function. This function is not standard but exists
  648: under Sun Studio, gcc, and maybe some others compilers. If this function does
  649: not exist on your compiler, you can change its definition by old one in
  650: src/rpl.h;
  651: - fflush() can now be interrupted by signal (SunOS);

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

  686: See README for more explanations;
  687: - MTXSTATUS intrinsic is added;
  688: - YIELD intrinsic is added;
  689: - ERRM is fixed. In some cases, ERRM uses some uninitialized pointers;
  690: - SHARED and PRIVATE intrinsics have been added. A shared variable is a
  691: static variable that is shared by multiple threads;
  692: - '->' intrinsic is improved. All object copies have been avoided;
  693: - -n flag is added to catch HUP signal. stderr and stdout are redirected
  694: to a file, stdin is redirected to /dev/null when control process is killed;
  695: - a mutex is added to each object (before this modification,
  696: RPL/2 used a global mutex and performances in multithreaded programs were very
  697: poor.);
  698: - ALARM is now interruptible;
  699: - both PUT and PUTI intrinsics are improved and do not copy list and table
  700: when nombre_occurrences == 1;

  707: - profile statistics have been added. See -P option;
  708: - major bug is fixed in analyse_syntaxique();
  709: - new SQL type is added;
  710: - due to a trouble in libpq in multithreaded context, SQL intrinsic is split
  711: in three new intrinsics : SQLCONNECT, SQLQUERY and SQLDISCONNECT. Please note
  712: that all programs that worked with old SQL intrinsic can now work with
  713: SQLQUERY. With all new programs, you can open a real connection to databases;
  714: - NRPROC is added. This new intrinsic is used to catch error from child
  715: process. Without NRPROC, any errors returned by child process cause
  716: main process to abort;
  717: - SPAWN is added. This new intrinsic is used to launch a new thread (DETACH
  718: starts a new process). There are no mutexes in RPL/2 because all spawned process
  719: use specific context. Nevertheless, shared variables and associated mutexes
  720: should be added;
  721: - -D flag and DAEMONIZE intrinsic have been added;

 1014: - HELP function is rewritten to be more friendly (a la OpenVMS);
 1015: - external wrapper (rplplot) is written to force usage of gnuplot provided
 1016: by RPL/2 if it is built during build process. If this build does not exist,
 1017: it tries to launch regular gnuplot;
 1018: - gnuplot is added to source tree to avoid some trouble between preinstalled
 1019: gnuplot and release used by RPL/2. This addition to source tree is
 1020: required by some incompatibility between gnuplot releases;

 1067: static variable can be transformed into volatile with VOLATILE.
 1068: With STATIC, next variables created by '->' are static;
 1069: - PROTECT and UNPROTECT are added to protect variables against write
 1070: or purge actions. New PARAMETER and VARIABLE intrinsics are modified
 1071: versions of PROTECT and UNPROTECT that only deal with global variables
 1072: (see RCL/SAVE);
 1073: - variable management routines have been rewritten. The new ones are
 1074: uncompatible with the old ones. Before these changes, a local variable
 1075: was exported to a child subroutine, but cannot be modified into this
 1076: child subroutine. Now, a local variable is accessible only in its subroutine;
 1077: - SAVE intrinsic is added to manipulate global variables;
 1078: - SUSPEND is written. RPL/2 waits for a SIGCONT signal;

 1087: that avoid a complete build;
 1088: - CTRL+Z and CTRL+C signals only perform actions on main process;
 1089: - major bugs are fixed in multitasking capabilities (some mistakes with
 1090: mutexes and several terminated child process cannot be closed by the
 1091: operating system);
 1092: - minor bug fixed in SCLS (mistake between main and auxiliary axes);
 1093: - variables are now written in rpl-core file;
 1094: - NEG is modified to return 0 instead -0 when its argument is real or complex

 1454: * Sun Jun 1 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6k (RPL/2)
 1455: - SLICESCALE intrinsic is added. Its syntax is
 1456: { "automatic" nb_of_levels }
 1457: { "discrete" l1 l2 l3 ... }
 1458: { "incremental" start incr }
 1459: { "incremental" start incr end }
 1460: { "automatic" } (default);
 1461: - a minor bug (in last stack) is fixed in AXES intrinsic
 1462: - flag 52 is used to automatically update graphics;
 1463: - man pages are updated;
 1464: - evaluation() is modified to perform evaluation of expressions that contain
 1465: '=';
 1466: - a minor bug is fixed in AXES intrinsic;
 1467: - a minor bug is fixed in DRAW intrinsic (2D and 3D graphics were able to
 1468: appear on the same figure). The same mistake is fixed in DRWS intrinsic;
 1469: - LAST is disabled in evaluation subroutine (EVAL and ->NUM intrinsics).
 1470: * Sun May 18 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6j (RPL/2)
 1471: - SLICE intrinsic is added. It is used to draw 3D graphics as contour lines;
 1472: - PLOTTER is added to draw statistical clouds with lines;
 1473: - C and H source files now include vim parameters;
 1474: - vim syntax file is modified to include new intrinsics;
 1475: - static archive is modified to include all required libraries needed by
 1476: RPL/2.
 1477: * Sun May 4 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6i (RPL/2)
 1478: - '=' is added and tested;
 1479: - XCOL and YCOL are added;
 1480: - a minor bug in analyse_syntaxique() is fixed;
 1481: - THEN is modified to return an error when ELSE appears in a CASE/THEN/END
 1482: structure. ELSE is modified to return an error when ELSE appears in
 1483: an ELSE/END structure;
 1484: - a major bug is fixed in CYCLE;
 1485: - EXIT is written. When EXIT appears in a defined loop (FOR or START), the
 1486: sequencer continues after the end of this loop;
 1487: - SCLS is added;
 1488: - DRWS now uses COLS to draw 2D graphics;
 1489: - PPAR and SPAR are written. SPAR returns a list that contains the
 1490: size of the statistical matrix (or "UNAVALAIBLE" if there is any
 1491: statistical variable, or "DISABLED" if its type is not one of the type of
 1492: a statistical matrix.) and XCOL and YCOL parameters. Warning: [[]] SIZE
 1493: returns { 1 0 } and it is not a bug, because a null matrix contains _one_
 1494: null line ! Thus, [[]] STOS SPAR returns { { 1 0 } 1 2 };
 1495: - EXTERNAL intrinsic is added. Warning: by default, extern functions are
 1496: disabled. Arguments of EXTERNAL are case sensitive because the external
 1497: interface is written in C. { ext_sinus } EXTERNAL does not replace the list
 1498: of known external functions but add the new list to the last. { "all" }
 1499: EXTERNAL allows all external functions and { "none" } EXTERNAL removes all
 1500: external names of the known functions;
 1501: - mkrplso.in is modified.
 1502: * Sun Apr 20 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6h (RPL/2)
 1503: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1504: - a minor mistake is fixed in recherche_instruction_suivante();
 1505: - some minor memory leaks are fixed in recherche_type() function. They only
 1506: occurs when a syntax error is detected;
 1507: - #error and #warning preprocessor macros are added;
 1508: - INCR and DECR are written (with integer or variable argument);
 1509: - CSWP and RSWP are added and tested;
 1510: - a minor bug is fixed in analyse.c;
 1511: - DEBIAN/control is added to build debian package;
 1512: - SCALE is fixed and improved ("automatic" keyword);
 1513: - PUTC and PUTR new intrinsics are added.
 1514: * Sun Apr 13 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6g (RPL/2)
 1515: - a very minor bug is fixed in VISIT intrinsic. It only occurs when
 1516: VISIT does not find a name in level 1;
 1517: - configure.in script is modified to add a new test (--enable-debug
 1518: flag). Configured with this fleg, RPL/2 will be built with electric-fences;
 1519: - GETR (get row[s]) and GETC (get column[s]) are added. These new instructions
 1520: extract a part of a matrix. Syntax: [[ 1 2 3 ][ 2 3 4 ]] { 1 } GETR or
 1521: 'MATRIX' { 2 2 3 } GETR;
 1522: - LOGSCALE intrinsic is improved and now, it can be used as
 1523: { "main" "auxiliary" X Y } LOGSCALE;
 1524: - SCALE intrinsic is used to fix the limits of a graphic. Its syntax is the
 1525: same than AXES:
 1526: { { 60 "ticsonly" 2 } { "automatic" "ticsonly" 10 } } axes
 1527: { "auxiliary" { 60 "ticsonly" "default" } { "automatic" } } axes
 1528: { { -10 10 } "automatic" } SCALE.
 1529: Warning, it is not possible to ask a logarithmic scale with this intrinsic
 1530: because it changes only the dimension of the screen. To have a logarithmic
 1531: scale, you must use LOGSCALE intrinsic:
 1532: { X } LOGSCALE gives a semi-log screen, { "auxiliary" X Y } gives a log-log
 1533: screen on second scale;
 1534: - { X X } autoscale and { Y Y } logscale are now invalid;
 1535: - *D is added (depth multiplication, for 3D graphics);
 1536: - a new intrinsic (*S) is added. It changes the scale of a graphic (X, Y
 1537: and Z axes). The result of *S is the same than DUP DUP *H *W *D;
 1538: - a major bug is fixed in GETI instrinsic when it is used with a name
 1539: that contains a matrix or a vector (bad upper bounds conditions in
 1540: incrementation);
 1541: - DISP intrinsic now uses the 33-th flag. When it is not set
 1542: (default), a final carriage return is sent to the terminal;
 1543: - AXES intrinsic only takes a list that can contains the keywork
 1544: "main" or "auxiliary". Before this modification, this keyword was in
 1545: the first stack level;
 1546: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1547: - in appel_gnuplot(), stdin is closed when gnuplot is called with -raise
 1548: option;
 1549: - LAST is now disabled in the main loop of INT intrinsic;
 1550: - expm1 and lnp1 are rewritten to use expm1 and log1p from math.h.
 1551: * Sun Apr 6 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6f (RPL/2)
 1552: - a major bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. It occurs with DRAW
 1553: intrinsic when the equation cannot be evaluated (for example 'SIN(X)/X'
 1554: in 0);
 1555: - LAST is disabled in the main loop of DRAW intrinsic;
 1556: - a major bug is fixed in DRAW intrinsic. When an error occurs in the
 1557: evaluation of an equation, the system stack is returned corrupted to the
 1558: sequencer;
 1559: - the same minor bug is fixed in FOR and START. It only occurs when the limits
 1560: of a loop are not integer or real.
 1561: * Sun Mar 31 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6e (RPL/2)
 1562: - the compilation stage aborts with an error message when two definitions
 1563: have the same name. To improve the compilation() subroutine, I have to
 1564: add some tests in gestion_variables.c;
 1565: - recherche_type() subroutine ad some other connex subroutines are improved.
 1566: Now, some syntax errors about object are caught and do not perform sequencer
 1567: hangup;

 1569: - Makefile.am's and configure.in scripts are improved.
 1570: * Fri Mar 14 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6d (RPL/2)
 1571: - DRWS intrinsic is written. Two datastyles are associated: SCATTER (2D
 1572: and 3D) and HISTOGRAM (only 2D, but 3 columns are accepted, the third shown
 1573: the boxwidth, 1 by default);
 1574: - recherche_type() is rewritten to be faster;
 1575: - gsl is upgraded (release 1.3);
 1576: - ncurses is upgraded and patched (release 5.3);
 1577: - recherche_instruction_suivante() is fixed (string research with included
 1578: '"') and rewritten to be faster;

 1589: - a minor bug is fixed in evaluation subroutine;
 1590: - vim syntax file is improved;
 1591: - DRAW (wireframe section) is fixed. When an error occurs in the evaluation
 1592: of a 3D-graphic (for example 'SIN(R)/R' with 'R=SQRT(X**2+Y**2)' in X=0 and
 1593: Y=0), no graph was procuced (it results from a bug in gnuplot, and this fix
 1594: is a quick and dirty workaround...);
 1595: - RETURN intrinsic is modified to fix a trouble in interactive mode;
 1596: - rplconvert is improved.
 1597: * Sun Dec 22 2002 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6a (RPL/2)
