* 1104: mpdm_app_dir() calls strcat() insecurely.
Pending Enhancements
--------------------
* 1008: bread().
* 1009: bwrite().
* 1063: Implement copy-on-write on array cloning.
Closed
------
* 1000: All string operations should use wchar_t instead of char
(Closed by: #1001; Sat, 3 Jul 2004 11:14:00 +0200).
* 1001: Merge mpdm-branch-wchar
(Closes: #1000; Sun, 4 Jul 2004 11:06:00 +0200).
* 1002: mpdm_aget() and mpdm_aset() should accept negative offsets
(Mon, 12 Jul 2004 17:44:00 +0200).
* 1012: mpdm_startup() and mpdm_shutdown() (Thu, 26 Aug 2004 20:10:02 +0200)
* 1013: Move the hardwired '16' number of minimum elements to an
struct _mpdm element, set from mpdm_startup()
(Thu, 26 Aug 2004 20:10:18 +0200).
* 1014: Create a new high threshold for values, to force calling
mpdm_sweep() from mpdm_new() if that threshold is overpassed (this
will allow a limit to be imposed to the number of unreferenced
values) (Thu, 26 Aug 2004 20:26:21 +0200).
* 1019: Rework mpdm_dump() to avoid using dynamic values
(Wed, 08 Sep 2004 21:52:39 +0200).
* 1020: Set errno on errors (Discarded; Thu, 07 Oct 2004 17:11:52 +0200).
* 1003: Beyond ties; suppress all flags (except some internal ones as IVAL
or EXEC). Everything should be done with ties; for example, there
should exist a _CMP tie function that would be executed when two
values being compared have the same tie (or, better, the same _CMP
function). Specially, MPDM_STRING and MPDM_MULTIPLE should disappear.
A value will be assumed multiple when having a tie function _AEXPAND
(or _AGET, or so). Code will become incidentally clean (no more "if
flags & MPDM_" scattered through the code). Risky change!
(Discarded; Wed, 08 Dec 2004 09:48:27 +0100).
* 1005: Should ties be in a special source file, mpdm_t.c ?
(Discarded; Wed, 08 Dec 2004 09:49:06 +0100).
* 1011: Will the scripting language be included here, or as a
separated package? it could poison the mpdm concept as a 'low
level utility library' (Yes; Wed, 08 Dec 2004 09:51:55 +0100).
* 1010: Find a name for the scripting language (Mpsl should be
fine; Wed, 08 Dec 2004 09:52:32 +0100).
* 1026: Make the _mpdm control structure public
(Wed, 08 Dec 2004 11:34:54 +0100).
* 1025: Change non-dyn values. They should be stored in a pool of
values, and 'allocated' from within mpdm_new(). Two macros, for
instance MPDM_ND_BEGIN() and MPDM_ND_END(), could save
/ restore a static index to that pool. Instead, the allocation
from the pool would just wrap (Wed, 08 Dec 2004 16:52:21 +0100).
* 1030: non-dyn array values are completely broken; the creation
should include the array of values and not take it from mpdm_alloc().
(Wed, 08 Dec 2004 19:16:05 +0100).
* 1031: Size in MPDM_ND_A() is superfluous, as it can be calculated
(Wed, 08 Dec 2004 22:12:57 +0100).
* 1033: Create a new mpdm_hexists() function
(Thu, 09 Dec 2004 11:19:03 +0100).
* 1037: Add caching support in values for real numbers (like ival).
(Sun, 12 Dec 2004 17:54:34 +0100).
* 1043: Change mpdm_write() so that it doesn't use printf(), but
wcstombs() and an small local buffer (Mon, 20 Dec 2004 08:41:20 -0800).
* 1045: mpdm_dump() should not use printf() for mpdm_string(), but
convert by hand using wcstombs() (Mon, 20 Dec 2004 08:44:52 -0800).
* 1044: mpdm_write() should include a 3rd argument, a separator
for the end of line (Mon, 20 Dec 2004 08:54:39 -0800).
* 1048: mpdm_rval() breaks locales (Wed, 05 Jan 2005 16:05:52 +0100).
* 1047: Change _mpdm_sym() to force the creation of all intermediate
arrays or hashes in the way. Also, it does not make much sense to
be in plain mpdm; it should be part of mpsl (Discarded;
Sat, 08 Jan 2005 21:30:55 +0100).
* 1016: Add optional iconv support
(Closed by #1055; Thu, 10 Mar 2005 13:26:54 +0100).
* 1054: Add a main() function, similar to the filp one
(Not applicable; Fri, 18 Mar 2005 06:46:06 +0100).
* 1032: Nondyn arrays must be protected in mpdm_aexpand(),
mpdm_acollapse(), etc (Fri, 18 Mar 2005 08:00:28 +0100).
* 1004: Create a tie function for mpdm_dump()
(No; Fri, 18 Mar 2005 08:04:19 +0100).
* 1057: Iconv objects can't be reused for different files, so
current implementation is faulty. Each iconv_t variable should
be stored inside the file value (Fri, 25 Mar 2005 02:24:10 +0100).
* 1055: Iconv support works, but is nearly useless; iconverters
should be associated to file descriptors, which are the only
place where iconv will really be used (Fri, 25 Mar 2005 03:04:26 +0100).
* 1058: Changeset on "2005-03-25 02:26 CET" (file descriptors in their's
own structure) broke mpsl (SIGSEGV's on compiling from file). Last
working version was "cvs update -D '2005/03/25 02:26'"
(Bug is in mpsl; Fri, 25 Mar 2005 12:17:21 +0100).
* 1015: The auto-sweep introduced by _mpdm.high_threshold is
extremely unsafe. At least, internal parts of mpdm should be
autosweep-safe (high_threshold abandoned; Mon, 28 Mar 2005 16:40:38 +0200).
* 1059: Get rid of ties. They are flexible and sexy, but add a complexity
that isn't worth (Sun, 03 Apr 2005 16:38:44 +0200).
* 1018: Support for optional features (like gdbm) should be stored
in an mpdm array or hash to easily ask for capabilities (gdbm support
dropped, and no other optional features; Sun, 03 Apr 2005 16:39:19 +0200).
* 1027: Store all static _tie... values in ties in the main
control structure (ties no longer exist; Sun, 03 Apr 2005 16:40:12 +0200).
* 1029: Store the regex cache in the main control structure
(Sun, 03 Apr 2005 16:40:32 +0200).
* 1028: With the closing of bugs #1026, #1027 and #1029, it should be
easy to have multiple mpdm engines, just by commuting the _mpdm
pointer. So, there should exist an mpdm_cleanup() function,
that would, after destroying values by calling mpdm_shutdown(),
free the rest of values stored inside. This kind of cleanup should
not be necessary on normal shutdown, as memory will be freed by
the operating system anyway (Doesn't seem necessary nor useful;
Mon, 04 Apr 2005 18:51:48 +0200).
* 1062: sprintf() (Not applicable, it should be implemented on mpsl instead;
Mon, 11 Apr 2005 17:52:38 +0200).
* 1060: Some old Unix systems (for example, IRIX) and mingw32
don't have the mbrtowc() function (they do have mbtowc(), though)
(Tue, 12 Apr 2005 18:55:42 +0200).
* 1017: Add optional gettext support (Sat, 16 Apr 2005 11:05:31 +0200).
* 1064: There should exist some way to detect the lack of gettext
support and set a translation hash (Closed by #1065;
Sat, 16 Apr 2005 11:32:11 +0200).
* 1071: The _cache_18n hash in mpdm_s.c has be moved to the main control
structure (Thu, 26 May 2005 14:01:17 +0200).
* 1072: mpdm_v should be renamed to mpdm_t (Thu, 26 May 2005 17:34:27 +0200).
* 1067: Get rid of symbols prefixed with _ (Thu, 26 May 2005 17:59:17 +0200).
* 1068: Rewrite the circular list of values as a double-list (i.e., with
links to previous) (Thu, 26 May 2005 18:48:56 +0200).
* 1069: The mpdm_free() function should dequeue the value about to be
destroyed; this way, it could be called from other functions, like
mpdm_unref() (Thu, 26 May 2005 18:48:56 +0200).
* 1070: Modify mpdm_unref() to optionally destroy a value when its
reference count gets to 0 (needs #1068 and #1069 closed) (No. This is not
that a good idea, as there are many places where values are referenced to
zero and later used, as in mpdm_asort(), or where semantics change, for
example, when mpdm_aset() returns the previous value;
Thu, 26 May 2005 20:28:33 +0200).
* 1073: Add a wcwidth() implementation for systems lacking it (for
example, mingw32) (Mon, 11 Jul 2005 07:55:31 +0200).
* 1074: Add multiline regex strings (Mon, 11 Jul 2005 15:57:06 +0200).
* 1076: If the string to be matched cannot be converted to mbs, both
mpdm_regex() and mpdm_sregex() abort (Sat, 22 Oct 2005 13:59:12 +0200).
* 1077: mpdm_mbstowcs() should return "" instead of NULL when converting
an empty string (Sat, 22 Oct 2005 18:00:50 +0200).
* 1075: mpdm_regex() is broken in UTF-8 environments,
as it's assuming that the matching information returned by regexec()
(in byte count) can be directly used as wchar_t offsets
(Sat, 22 Oct 2005 18:12:20 +0200).
* 1078: mpdm_sregex() is broken in UTF-8 environments,
as it's assuming that the matching information returned by regexec()
(in byte count) can be directly used as wchar_t offsets
(Sat, 22 Oct 2005 22:50:51 +0200).
* 1079: Previous match information for regexes contain wrong
values if the string to be matched is multibyte
(Sun, 23 Oct 2005 21:21:43 +0200).
* 1080: Related to #1079, multiline regexes don't work in
multibyte locales, as it's also relying on rm containing
offsets in characters (Sun, 23 Oct 2005 21:35:08 +0200).
* 1081: Document all the MPDM_ macros (Tue, 22 Nov 2005 17:03:40 +0100).
* 1082: Add categories to mp_doccer documentation
(Tue, 22 Nov 2005 17:03:45 +0100).
* 1065: There should exist some way to detect lack of gettext support
in runtime to add implementation-specific workarounds as, for
example, filling the i18n cache manually. This is something like
a reopening of bug #1018 (Implemented by returning failure from
mpdm_gettext_domain(); Thu, 19 Jan 2006 08:15:21 +0100).
* 1084: As mpdm_sregex() now executes code, all values should be
referenced to avoid undesired sweeps (Mon, 13 Feb 2006 09:12:41 +0100).
* 1083: Add pipe support (Tue, 09 May 2006 18:02:19 +0200).
* 1087: Add pipe support for win32 (Fri, 12 May 2006 08:04:30 +0200).
* 1086: Add a way to get the 'library' (/usr/PREFIX/share on Unix
and the "Program Files" directory on Windows) and 'home' (~ and
"My Documents") directories (Fri, 12 May 2006 13:26:32 +0200).
* 1088: mpdm_sprintf() (Tue, 23 May 2006 18:07:58 +0200).
* 1091: Change CONFOPT_NULL_HASH to a runtime switch using an
environment variable (Wed, 13 Sep 2006 16:07:18 +0200).
* 1006: stat() (Tue, 10 Oct 2006 13:00:54 +0200).
* 1007: chmod() (Tue, 10 Oct 2006 13:00:54 +0200).
* 1089: Change mpdm_cmp() to use wcscoll() instead of wcscmp()
(Tue, 10 Oct 2006 13:54:36 +0200).
* 1092: fseek() (Thu, 12 Oct 2006 09:54:34 +0200).
* 1093: ftell() (Thu, 12 Oct 2006 09:54:34 +0200).
* 1090: Sort the array in mpdm_glob() to show directories first
(Fri, 10 Nov 2006 17:32:27 +0100).
* 1095: The %c directive in sprintf() should work with Unicode
(or wchar_t) characters (Mon, 11 Jun 2007 08:42:02 +0200).
* 1096: On mpdm_sregex(), substitute all unescaped & with the regex match
(Mon, 18 Jun 2007 12:23:37 +0200).
* 1097: Fixed a bug in offset processing in mpdm_sregex()
(Mon, 18 Jun 2007 13:54:24 +0200).
* 1098: mpdm_cmp(NULL, NULL) should return 0
(Wed, 12 Sep 2007 09:50:08 +0200).
* 1100: Allow for a component in a 'symbol' managed by mpdm_sym() to
be an executable (Tue, 25 Sep 2007 18:13:38 +0200).
* 1099: mpdm_cmp() should be optimized to return 0 if two arrays
are *the same* (Closed by 1102; Fri, 28 Sep 2007 13:01:55 +0200).
* 1102: Optimize mpdm_cmp() when comparing the same values
(Fri, 28 Sep 2007 13:10:44 +0200).
* 1107: Implement functions to set the ival and rval of a value
(Thu, 29 Nov 2007 09:07:33 +0100).
* 1106: Implement a function to get the file handle of an MPDM_FILE type
(Thu, 29 Nov 2007 13:12:48 +0100).
* 1085: Use const wherever possible (Fri, 18 Jan 2008 14:10:12 +0100).
* 1108: Fix the %% usage in mpdm_sprintf()
(Sun, 30 Mar 2008 17:41:02 +0200).
* 1061: On IRIX, iconv() doesn't have the "WCHAR_T" charset, so
iconv support doesn't seem to work there; but it has "UCS-4", which
is practically the same and it works, so there should be some
workaround to use it whenever "WCHAR_T" fails
(Mon, 07 Apr 2008 14:55:30 +0200).
* 1109: expand_ampersands() kills all backslashes
(Tue, 03 Feb 2009 07:25:21 +0100).
* 1110: Win32 file globbing fails when a leading directory is specified
(Wed, 25 Mar 2009 17:04:29 +0100).
* 1111: Document mpdm_sscanf() (Wed, 26 Aug 2009 09:07:01 +0200).
* 1112: Document the `DETECTED_ENCODING' variable
(Wed, 26 Aug 2009 09:40:03 +0200).
* 1113: Document the `TEMP_ENCODING' variable
(Wed, 26 Aug 2009 09:40:03 +0200).
* 1114: Fixed mpdm_sset() when the previous-to-last value to be
assigned is executable (Tue, 22 Dec 2009 10:05:12 +0100).
* 1066: Implement a minimum time-to-live for values; never referenced values
younger than that will never be swept. Values under explicit [un]ref()
control won't have this, as they (should) never be used after being
unreferenced, so TTL will be unset after being unreferenced to 0. Anyway,
as this could mask possible sweeping errors, it has not been implemented yet
(no longer applicable; Fri, 14 Jan 2011 12:31:28 +0100).
* 1094: Try an (optional) usage of pthreads to call sweep() in a low priority
thread, when nothing else is happening (no longer applicable;
Fri, 14 Jan 2011 12:31:28 +0100).
* 1105: Try another approach: store in the circular queue only the
unreferenced values; the others will be completely unqueued. This way,
values to be swept are immediately found. On the other side, mpdm_ref()
and mpdm_unref() will be much expensive, as they will en/dequeue values
depending of v->ref 0 or 1 (no longer applicable; Fri, 14 Jan 2011 12:31:28 +0100).
* 1120: Drop completely the garbage collection and convert it to a pure
reference-counting system (Fri, 14 Jan 2011 12:30:30 +0100).
* 1115: Invert mpdm_split() arguments (Thu, 03 Feb 2011 09:25:38 +0100).
* 1116: Invert mpdm_join() arguments (Thu, 03 Feb 2011 09:42:48 +0100).
* 1117: Invert mpdm_sscanf() arguments (Thu, 03 Feb 2011 10:08:28 +0100).
* 1119: Invert mpdm_sregex() arguments (Thu, 03 Feb 2011 13:10:49 +0100).
* 1118: Invert mpdm_regex() arguments (Thu, 03 Feb 2011 16:01:50 +0100).
* 1122: Modify MPDM_I() and MPDM_R() to move the sprintf()-ing of
the value to mpdm_string(). This will delay numbers' printable
representation until (or if) really needed
(Fri, 26 Aug 2011 20:28:57 +0200).
* 1121: Document MPDM_AA() (Wed, 31 Aug 2011 12:32:09 +0200).
* 1123: Add TCP/IP support (mainly to add "test for updates" for MP)
(Mon, 02 Apr 2012 15:18:07 +0200).
* 1101: Move mpdm_sym(), mpdm_sget() and mpdm_sset() to MPSL, as they
don't really belong here (Mon, 21 May 2012 17:09:22 +0200).
