* Released 1.3.4
* NEWS: Updated
Tue Apr 17 10:43:36 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* gstrfuncs.c: Define _GNU_SOURCE for stpcpy
* tests/mainloop-test.c (main): Wait for all threads
to start before beginning tests.
2001-04-17 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthreadpool.c (g_thread_pool_thread_proxy): Until now every
thread pool always had at least one tread waiting to avoid
switching overhead in case a new task would be added soon after
one finished. This however means a big waste of threads, if many
mostly inactive thread pools are involved. Now such a waiting
thread will only wait for half a second (This value is of course
very randomly picked) and go to the global threadpool afterwards.
Mon Apr 16 12:04:52 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* Remove warnings about conflicts with the
stable version.

Tue Apr 3 13:46:22 2001 Tim Janik <>
* glist.[hc]: added g_list_nth_prev() which walks ->prev instead
of ->next.
* gpattern.[hc]: added shell-style pattern matching code from beast,
derived from the gtk_pattern_*() code, but with a couple of bug fixes
and a number of optimizations.
2001-04-03 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthreadpool.c: Added documentation.
* gthreadpool.c: The global thread pool now also is seperated for
bound and unbound threads. Only threads with standard stack size
go to the global pool. g_thread_pool_new now protects the global
setup of inform_mutex etc. with a lock. Fixed some typos. Unlock
the queue after g_thread_pool_wakeup_and_stop_all in the proxy.
2001-04-02 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gmain.c: Use the new GRealThread member "context" instead of a
GStaticPrivate to store the thread specific main loop context.
* gthread.c: Added "context" member to GRealThread and updated
g_thread_create, g_thread_self and g_thread_cleanup accordingly.
* gthread.c, gthread.h: Removed the functions
g_static_private_(get|set)_for_thread and adapted
g_static_private_(get|set) and g_static_private_free
accordingly. This fixes Bug #51435.
2001-03-30 Sven Neumann <>
* ghash.[ch]
* docs/reference/glib/tmpl/hash_tables.sgml: added new functions
g_hash_table_new_full, g_hash_table_replace, g_hash_table_steal and
g_hash_table_foreach_steal. Moved most docs out of the template
file into the C file. Please proofread the new documentation.

[ Patch from DindinX <>, added docs ]
* gstrfuncs.c, gstrfuncs.h: Add g_stpcpy () for platform that don't
have stpcpy ().
* gstrfuncs.c (g_strjoin, g_strjoinv and g_strconcat): use
g_stpcpy () so these functions run much faster.
*, glib.def: add reference to g_stpcpy ()
* Add a test for the stpcpy () function.
2001-03-20 Havoc Pennington <>
* gutf8.c (g_utf8_strlen): rewrite, based on bug #52328 from
2001-03-19 Havoc Pennington <>

added a GData member instead.
* glist.[hc]: added g_list_remove_all().
* gslist.[hc]: added g_slist_remove_all().
Sat Mar 17 19:54:51 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* timeloop.c: Reorder headers to make FreeBSD happy.
2001-03-13 Tor Lillqvist <>
From Edward M. Lee <>:
* gdate.c (g_date_set_parse): add support for dates that in the
form "Wed Mar 14 2001". Running testgdate on cygwin requires this.
Fri Mar 9 18:01:43 2001 Tim Janik <>
* gscanner.[hc]: made config arg to g_scanner_new() const.
2001-03-12 Tor Lillqvist <>
* tests/ (libmoduletestplugin_b_la_LIBADD,
libmoduletestplugin_b_la_LIBADD): Link with the libgmodule la only
on Win32.

2001-03-08 Sven Neumann <>
* gtree.[ch]:
* docs/reference/glib/tmpl/trees-binary.sgml: added new function
Thu Mar 8 16:23:34 2001 Tim Janik <>
* ghook.[hc]: destruction cleanup. there's one
->finalize_hook member in the hooklist now that gets
called when a hook should be destroyed, that's it.
that function is guarranteed to be called only when
all ref_counts to the hook vanished, thus also when
the hook is not in call.
2001-03-08 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* (FLAG_DOES_NOT_WORK): Fix typo and thus bug #51862.
Wed Mar 7 09:32:06 2001 Tim Janik <>
* glib-object.h: add gvaluearray.h.
* gstring.[hc]: fixup naming of g_string_sprint*.
* gtypes.h: fixed GCompareDataFunc naming.
2001-03-07 Christian Meyer <>
* Added de (German) to ALL_LINGUAS.
2001-03-02 Christophe Merlet <>
* Added fr (French) to ALL_LINGUAS.
2001-03-01 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gutils.c (g_path_is_absolute): (Win32) Remove test for initial
double backslash (UNC path), this will of course be matched by the
test for an initial G_DIR_SEPARATOR right up front. Silly me.
(g_find_program_in_path): Implement on Win32. Append the
executable file name suffixes from PATHEXT in turn while looking
for the program.
(g_find_program_in_path): If the program we are looking for is a
relative path in a subdirectory, don't do any path search.
(g_get_any_init): (Win32) Also look for the USERPROFILE env var
indicating the home directory equivalent.
(g_find_program_in_path): (Win32): Use MAXPATHLEN, not PATH_MAX
which isn't defined with MSVC.
* testglib.c (main): Test g_find_program_in_path() on Win32 by
looking for and regedit.
* glib.def: Add g_find_program_in_path.
2001-02-26 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthreadpool.c (g_thread_pool_thread_proxy): Make
max_unused_threads work for -1 as well.
2001-02-23 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthread.h (struct _GThread): Change the order to match the order
in g_thread_create().
* gthread.c (g_static_rec_mutex_lock_full): Also do the right
thing (behave like 'depth' calls to g_static_rec_mutex_lock) for a
mutex, that is already locked.
Thu Feb 22 10:31:36 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* gmain.c (g_source_remove_poll): Add missing implementation
of g_source_remove_poll. (Pointed out by Stefan Westerfeld)
2001-02-21 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gutils.c (g_find_program_in_path): Implement on Win32.
Cygwin support contributed by Stefan Ondrejicka
<>. Hopefully I got it all in while simultaneously
adding support for auto*/libtool for mingw.
* Changes for auto* support on Cygwin and Win32. Do
still distribute the hand-written makefiles and * files,
though. Use GIO, GSPAWN and PLATFORMDEP macros set by configure.
Use -no-undefined. Pass -export-symbols glib.def to libtool.
* Define G_PLATFORM_WIN32 on both pure Win32 (mingw)
calls for Cygwin and mingw support. Check for %I64u guint64
format (in MS C library). Set G_MODULE_IMPL on mingw and
Cygwin. Use ac_object and ac_exeext. Set GIO, GSPAWN, PLATFORMDEP
and G_LIBS_EXTRA. Compile timeloop only on Unix. Define OS_WIN32
automake conditional on Win32.
* glib.h: Include gwin32.h also on Cygwin.
* gfileutils.c (get_contents_posix): Use O_BINARY (defined as 0 on
Unix) for Cygwin's sake.
* gtimer.c (GETTIME): Reduce #ifdefs, use a macro GETTIME().
* gconvert.c
* gthread.c
* gutf8.c
* gutils.c: For code needed both on Cygwin and native Win32,
test for G_PLATFORM_WIN32.
* gmarkup.h: Use G_BEGIN_DECLS and G_END_DECLS.
* gtypes.h: Refine GLIB_VAR definition. Also check for DLL_EXPORT
in case compiling a static library on Win32 or Cygwin.
* gwin32.c: No <direct.h> on Cygwin. No need for ftruncate() or
dirent emulation on Cygwin.
(get_package_directory_from_module) Convert return value from
GetModuleFileName() to POSIX path on Cygwin.
* tests/ (progs_LDADD): Link with libglib, libgthread
and libgmodule as appropriate. Use -no-undefined.
* gbacktrace.c: Move #ifdefs around a bit on Win32.
2001-02-21 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gshell.c (unquote_string_inplace): Make static.
* gthread.h: Include gtypes.h to be sure to get GLIB_VAR
definition, remove definition from here.
* gunicode.h: Remove duplicate GLIB_VAR definition from here, too.
* gutils.c: (Win32) Use USERPROFILE as home dir if present. On
Win2k, HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH aren't reliable.
* Remove install target, Windows isn't Unix.
* testgdate.c
* testgdateparser.c
* testglib.c: Undefine GLIB_COMPILATION.
* testglib.c: Make some vars static. Add Cygwin path tests.
* glib.def: Updates.
* .cvsignore
* */.cvsignore: Ignore also .obj, .dll, .lib and .exe files.
2001-02-19 Hans Breuer <>
* glib/glib.def, gobject/gobject.def : added nissing symbols
* gobject/makefile.msc : updated
* glib/gmessages.c : call the "debug interrupt" before exiting the
program, if build with msvc as debug version. Which gives the opportunity
to see the callstack, etc.
* glib/gthread.c : thread->pid is only defined #ifdef
Mon Feb 19 07:32:38 2001 Tim Janik <>
* (lib_glib): my name is glib-config-2.0!
don't exit with errorcode!=0 for --help or -h.
* build glib-config-2.0.
2001-02-17 Havoc Pennington <>
* gthread.c: include string.h
Applied patch from Soeren Sandmann:
* testglib.c: const fixes
* gwin32.h: format cleanups
* gutils.c (g_atexit): constify a variable
(g_find_program_in_path): constification
(g_basename): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_path_skip_root): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_getenv): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_get_user_name): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_get_real_name): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_get_home_dir): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_get_tmp_dir): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_get_prgname): G_CONST_RETURN
(_glib_gettext): G_CONST_RETURN
* gunicode.h: formatting cleanups
* gstrfuncs.c (g_strerror): G_CONST_RETURN
(g_strsignal): G_CONST_RETURN
* gspawn.c (g_execute): const on variables
* gmessages.c (printf_string_upper_bound): fix const on a variable
* gmem.c (g_mem_chunk_new): make the "name" arg const
(struct _GRealMemChunk): make the "name" field const
* gfileutils.c (g_file_open_tmp): store const return in a const
gchar* variable
* gdataset.c (g_quark_to_string): G_CONST_RETURN
Sat Feb 17 07:26:33 2001 Tim Janik <>
* (G_MODULE_HAVE_DLERROR): add check for broken RTLD_GLOBAL
(on OSF1 V5.0).
2001-02-15 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* acconfig.h, Reverted the changes necessary to
enlarge the system thread for G_THREAD_USE_PID_SURROGATE.
* gthread.c: Now implement G_THREAD_USE_PID_SURROGATE in gthread.c
instead of gthread/gthread-posix.c. While the latter has the
advantage, that it is conceptually cleaner, it makes
g_thread_self_posix_impl _very_ slow and that hurts
GStaticRecMutex and other things. So the new version is less
clean, but faster.
2001-02-09 Havoc Pennington <>
* gconvert.c (g_convert): don't overwrite errors
* gerror.c (g_set_error): improve warning message if an error is
(g_propagate_error): ditto
2001-02-13 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthread.c, gthread.h: Added functions g_static_rec_mutex_init,
g_static_rec_mutex_free, g_static_private_init,
g_static_private_free, g_static_rw_lock_init to allow the usage of
all those types dynamically. (g_static_rw_lock_free already
existed). Aditionally freed static_private indeces are reused
now. Untill now the array would just grow if you would use more
and more static_private. That required adding a slist of all
running threads, which could potentially be of good use later. It
is not exported however. Renamed a LOCK and small indentation
* tests/thread-test.c: Test the new static_private index freing
and reusing feature.
Mon Feb 12 15:01:09 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* (gtk_doc_min_version): Add check for gtk-doc version.
2001-02-10 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gtypes.h
* gutils.h: Move GLIB_VAR definition from gutils.h to gtypes.h
* glib.def
* gmem.h: Mark glib_mem_profiler_table for export.
* gwin32.c (get_package_directory_from_module): Don't store
address of local variable in hashtable.
2001-02-08 Fatih Demir <>
* Added "tr" to ALL_LINGUAS.
2001-02-04 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gwin32.c (g_win32_getlocale): Use "nn" for Nynorsk, as nn.po
files are appearing now. If the sublanguage starts with '@', don't
use a '_' separator. South Africa is 'ZA', not 'SA'.
Sun Feb 4 07:38:32 2001 Tim Janik <>
* docs/debugging.txt: s/glib_trap_/g_trap_/. add comments on
g_trap_instance_signals, g_trace_instance_signals and
* gmem.c: s/glib_trap_/g_trap_/.
2001-02-04 Tor Lillqvist <>
* tests/ (thread_LDADD): Change order of libs,
put progs_LDADD last. Needed for cygwin, says
2001-02-02 Tor Lillqvist <>
* giochannel.h
* giowin32.c
* gmain.c: Stylistic cleanups. Use G_STRLOC in g_warning() calls.
* glib.def: Add missing functions.
2001-02-01 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthread.c, gthread.h: Added g_static_mutex_init to allow
initialization of a GStaticMutex, that can not be initialized with
G_STATIC_MUTEX_INIT, for example in allocated structures.
Wed Jan 31 13:46:58 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* acinclude.m4 glib-gettext.m4: Fix problem with --disable-nls.
2001-01-31 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Corresponding change as below to
2001-01-30 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthread.c, gthread.h: Added g_static_mutex_free to allow using
GStaticMutexes with limited lifetime without leaking.
* GStaticMutex doesn't have to provide extra space
for debugging information for G_ERRORCHECK_MUTEXES, as then the
non-default implementation (runtime_mutex) is used anyway.
* gthread.h (g_cond_wait): Added debug information for
g_mutex_free calls, if G_ERRORCHECK_MUTEXES is defined.
2001-01-29 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Use the same GMutex structure as the
configure-generated glibconfig.h does.
* gstrfuncs.c (g_strsignal): Declare strsignal() on Cygwin, too,
2001-01-29 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gthread.c: Broadcast the condition, if there are waiting
readers, as all might read at the same time. Only signal the
writer thread, if there are no more readers.
2001-01-25 Tor Lillqvist <>
* */ Protect the rule to rebuild makefile.mingw
if has changed with a check if said .in file
exists. (This rule is mainly a convenience for yours truly.)
* giowin32.c: Socket support rewritten. It was utterly broken, and
untested in fact. We still do use a thread for each socket being
watched, but instead of blocking in recv() (which of course was
plain stupid for sockets being listen()ed on in a server-type
application), we block in select(). The read method for sockets
calls recv(). It is now possible for the application to call
accept(), recv() or send() in the callback, just like on
Unix. Tested with code kindly provided by Andrew Lanoix.
Rename g_io_channel_win32_new_stream_socket() to
g_io_channel_win32_new_socket() as it isn't restricted to stream
* gmain.c (g_poll): Related changes in the Win32 version of
g_poll(). When polling for messages, always do a PeekMessage()
first. We used to miss messages if several were posted between
calls to g_poll().
* giochannel.h: Improve Win32-related comments.
* gutf8.c: (Win32) Include <stdio.h> for sprintf.
* tests/gio-test.c: (Win32) Add tests for polling for Windows
* tests/ Remove superfluous compilation command
2001-01-23 Alex Larsson <>
* gmain.c (g_source_callback_unref): Free the callback
(g_source_set_callback): Initialize the callback refcount
2001-01-20 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gutils.c (g_get_codeset): (Win32) Even if g_get_codeset() is
currently commented out from gutils.h, fix it to return the same
CP%d value as g_get_charset().
2001-01-19 Kjartan Maraas <>
* gconvert.c: Fix typo.
* gfileutils.c: Same here.
* Added no to ALL_LINGUAS
2001-01-17 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gwin32.c (g_win32_getlocale, g_win32_error_message): Add doc
(g_win32_get_package_installation_directory): Add one parameter,
the name of a DLL in the package. Add possibility to use that to
deduce the installation directory if not entered into the
Registry. Make the return value dynamically allocated.
(g_win32_get_package_installation_subdirectory): New convenience
* gutils.c (GLIB_LOCALE_DIR)
* gwin32.h: Adapt accordingly.
* testglib.c (main): Adapt tests accordingly.
Tue Jan 16 23:20:38 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* gutils.c glibintl.h: Optimize for size rather than speed by
making _() always call _glib_gettext() instead of conditionally
calling gettext() or _glib_gettext_init. glib only uses translated
strings in slow error handling code anyways.
* glibintl.h: g'ify types.
* include glibintl.h in _SOURCES
2001-01-17 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Use the GNU intl library.
* gwin32.c (g_win32_get_package_installation_directory): New
function. To be used by various GLib-using packages to get their
installation directory, which should be stored in the Registry by
some installer.
* gwin32.h: Declare it.
* testglib.c (main): Test it.
* gutils.c: On Win32, define GLIB_LOCALE_DIR using
* glib.def: Update.
Mon Jan 15 21:39:06 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* (Libs) Add @INTLLIBS@.
Mon Jan 15 21:12:49 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* acconfig.h glibintl.h gutils.c
po/{,,}: Add gettext
* glib-gettext.m4 acinclude.m4: Clean up the GTK+ gettext macros
some more and put them in this file, though they also need
to be included in acinclude.m4 due to the brokeness of
* gspawn.c gspawn-win32.c gutf8.c gconvert.c gfileutils.c
gshell.c: Remove dummy _() #defines, include glibintl.m4.
2001-01-09 Tor Lillqvist <>
* giowin32.c: Rework the changes needed to pass mainloop-test. Now
we don't need to call TerminateThread() after all, which is a
relief, as the docs have a BIG RED WARNING SIGN about using that
API. Instead, when closing a fd channel that has a reader thread
running, just mark it as non-running and additionally mark the fd
as ripe for closing. When the reader thread hopefully eventually
gets something (and EOF or some actual data), it will note that it
shouldn't be running, break out of the loop, and close the fd.
The socket channel closing code should probably be changed
similarily, but that will have to wait until I have a test case.
(g_pipe_readable_msg, g_io_channel_win32_new_pipe,
g_io_channel_win32_pipe_readable): Remove these, have been
obsolete for some time.
* gutils.c (g_basename, g_dirname): Don't warn about deprecation
on Win32. Code written for GLib 1.2 doesn't have much choice but
to use GLib >= 1.3 on Win32.
* glib.def: Update.
2001-01-09 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gmem.c: Made g_profile_mutex a GMutex* instead of
G_LOCK_DEFINE_STATIC to avoid deadlock for thread implementations
without native static mutexes. Contruct g_profile_mutex in
2001-01-06 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gconvert.c (g_locale_to_utf8, g_locale_from_utf8): Get len using
strlen() if arg is negative in the Win32 code, too.
* giowin32.c: Changes necessary to be able to run
mainloop-test. We can't close the fd that our (internal) reader
thread is sitting doing a blocking read() from. We must terminate
the thread first. Keep track of thread handle, and close it when
thread is dying. Start reader thread with the lower-level
CreateThread() instead of _beginthreadex() from the C runtime, in
order to be able to use TerminateThread(). Hopefuly this isn't
* glib.def: Update.
* tests/makefile.{mingw,msc}.in (TESTS): Add mainloop-test and
* tests/mainloop-test.c: Portability: <unistd.h>, need <fcntl.h>
on Win32.
* tests/unicode-encoding.c (process): Add missing "line" argument
to fail(). On Win32, convert UTF-16LE, as libiconv'c ivonf always
converts to UTF-16BE if we ask for unspecific UTF-16.
(main) Handle also '\r'.
Fri Jan 5 11:25:42 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* (PACKAGE): move $enable_debug down below
checks for GCC to avoid setting CFLAGS prematurely,
change checks to avoid adding -g twice.
* gutf8.c (g_ucs4_to_utf8): Support len < 0 to mean
0 termination.
* gutf8.c (g_utf8_to_ucs4): Terminate result with 0.
* tests/mainloop-test.c (main): Fix uses of
* tests/unicode-encoding.c tests/ tests/utf8.txt:
Tests for unicode-conversion code.
* gconvert.c (g_convert, g_convert_with_fallback): work around
a couple of GNU libc bugs.
* gconvert.[ch] (g_{locale,filename}_{to,from}_utf8): Standardize
arguments to match g_convert(). Document.
* gunicode.[ch]:
- Implement conversion functions to and from UTF-16
- Standardize unicode conversion functions on prototype like
- Add a lot of error checking to unicode conversion functions.
* gunicode.[ch] (g_utf8_to_ucs4_fast): Add fast, non-checking
variant of g_utf8_to_ucs4.
* gutf8.c (g_utf8_validate):
- add g_return_if_fail (str != NULL).
- add checks for overlong strings, non-valid Unicode characters (>= 110000)
and single surrogates.

forward slashes in the template.
* gutils.c (g_path_skip_root): On Win32, skip the \\server\share
part of UNC paths. On all platforms, skip several initial
slashes. Add a few comments.
(g_get_any_init): On Win32, in case HOME is Unix-style with
(forward) slashes (some other applications apparently set it up
this way, convert to backslashed form.

"sl", "dll", or (most often) "so".
* tests/, tests/module-test.c,
tests/libmoduletestplugin_a.c, tests/libmoduletestplugin_b.c:
Added new testcase for gmodule. This is mostly copied from
gmodule/testgmodule.c, but unlike that is is quiet. (Why BTW are
some tests that verbose, not to say loquacious...)
2000-12-19 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* grand.c: Updated G_RAND_DOUBLE_TRANSFORM to be more
accurate. Redid g_rand_double() such that it returns 52 bits after
the point instead of 32 as before. That OTOH requires calling
g_rand_int() twice. Overhauled g_rand_int_range(), which is easier
now thanks to the new precision of g_rand_double(). Thanks to
Sverre Johansen <> for the hint.
* grand.h: Added g_rand_boolean() and g_random_boolean()
macros. While they could be omitted due to extreme simplicity,
they make intention clearer in code and are therefore good to have.
* grand.c, grand.h: Renamed all 'min' and 'max' parameters to'
begin' and 'end' resp. to avoid making people think, that 'max' is
included in the interval. 'end' now isn't, whereas 'begin'
is. That's similar to the use in the STL.
* gslist.c, glist.c: Ok, I'm a moron. When I originally
implemented ENABLE_GC_FRIENDLY, I forgot to include config.h into
the affected files. Now that Alex did that for those two,
inevitable typos surfaced, which are now fixed.
* garray.c, ghash.c, gqueue.c, gtree.c: Include config.h as well,
as ENABLE_GC_FRIENDLY should be known.

charset might be changed later in the program.

(g_io_channel_unix_new): If it is a file descriptor (i.e., a Unix

g_io_channel_win32_new_fd(). If it is a socket (from WinSock),
call g_io_cahnnel_win32_new_stream_socket(). Hopefully sockets and
fds don't overlap. TODO: Implement also datagram sockets.
(g_io_channel_win32_poll): Call g_main_context_get_poll_func().
* gcompletion.h: Include <unistd.h> only on Unix. Is this
inclusion really needed here? OTOH, do include <stddef.h>, for

* gmain.c (g_source_add_poll): Don't return a value from void
(g_main_context_get_poll_func): Compile also for non-Win32, as
presumably was intended. The result var is a GPollFunc, not a
GPollFunc*. Return the result!

* gconvert.c (open_converter): make static
* gutf8.c (g_utf8_validate): Simplify logic a bit, maybe
speeding it up - now we just return FALSE if we had to bail out

also fixes a bug where nul bytes were not treated as invalid

functionality that is relatively clean to implement on Unix, is
hard to do on Win32. We must use a separate helper program to
change directory, close extra file descriptors, redirect the std
ones, as needed, and only then start the child process. No child
process pid can be returned, unfortunately. Or if we used
CreateProcess directly, it probably could. (Now we use the spawnv*
functions from msvcrt.)

2000-07-30 Tor Lillqvist <>
Finally, a new and improved IO Channel and condition watch
implementation for Win32. Based on code provided by Craig Setera.
When watching file descriptors, for which there is no select()
like functionality on Win32 that would work on all Win32 platforms
for all types of file descriptors (including anonymous pipes), we
start a new thread that blocks while trying to read from the file
descriptor. When the read returns, a Win32 Event is signalled that
the polling routine eventually notices. Meanwhile, the data being
read is stored in a circular buffer, from where the IO channel's
read() method picks it up.
If the buffer fills up the reading thread has to wait for space
becoming available. For this another Win32 Event is used. The IO
Channel's read() method signals this when it has read some data
out of the buffer.
The separate reader thread(s), and the circular buffer(s) with
associated events mean lots of possibilities for fun parallelism
errors. But it seems to work OK, i.e. GIMP runs.
* gmain.c: Small changes to the Win32 polling function.
(g_main_win32_get_poll_func): New function. Perhaps it would be a
good idea to provide this on all platforms.
* giowin32.c: The bulk of the new implementation.
(g_io_channel_win32_wait_for_condition): New function. To be used
where on Unix one does a select() on the channel's fd, like
libgimp's gimp_extension_process(). Could be provided on all
* glib.h: Update documentation for IO Channels on Win32. Remove
the declarations for the as of now obsolete old functions related

(Later the same night:)
* giowin32.c: Compile in the debugging code all the time, but only
output debug messages if told so. Add (unadvertised) function to
turn on/off debug messages for a channel.
(buffer_read): Don't loop. It is expected behaviour to return a
short read occasionally, for instance when reading from
pipes. It's the calling code that should loop if it *knows* how
much the writer has written.
* tests/gio-test.c: Correct the program's name in the output.
(recv_message): Loop calling g_io_channel_read() (in a new
function read_all()) until we have all the bytes we want (that we

of cleanup needs to be done, tests need to be added, and
the docs need to be finished, but this should allow replacing
most or all use of libunicode.

* glib.h, gcache.c, gtree.c: Changed the 'value' parameter of
g_cache_remove from gpointer to gconstpointer. Dito for the 'key'
parameter of g_tree_lookup and g_tree_remove and the 'data'
parameter of g_tree_search. This function now takes a function of
type GCompareFunc instead of GSearchFunc. This fixes Bug

be thread safe and to make the returned environment string
persistent to match the UN*X behavior. This is again a response to
Bug #8983.
* glib.h (G_LOCK_NAME): Removed parentheses around the lock name,

isn't necessary.
Wed Apr 19 08:32:32 2000 Tim Janik <>
* gscanner.c (g_scanner_new): make sure that
scanner->config->cset_skip_characters is "" instead of NULL, so we
don't segfault further on.
2000-04-18 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* glib.h, glist.h, gslist.h: Changed the 'data' parameters from
gpointer to gconstpointer for the functions
g_(list|slist)_(remove|find|find_custom|index), as they do not
change this parameter. This fixes bug #4836.
* glib.h: Changed comment for g_getenv to reflect, that the
returned memory must not be freed. Fixes bug #8983.

* garray.c, ghash.c, glist.c, gmain.c, gmem.c, gnode.c, gqueue.c,
gslist.c, gtree.c: If ENABLE_GC_FRIENDLY is defined, NULLify all
memory released by the user, but cached by GLib. This lets a
garbage collector have a more correct view of the actually used
* garray.c, glib.h: Added g_(array|ptr_array|byte_array)_sized_new
functions, that reserve a certain amount of memeory for the array
at creation time to avoid reallocation. Fixes bug #6707 from

* README.win32: Tell about using the mingw-based gcc, which is
much easier than modifying the cygwin gcc to product mingw code

* (WIN32APIHEADERS): Kludge to make it work
with a "pure" mingw gcc, too.
2000-03-24 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* garray.c: Made GArray behave correctly. Now zero_terminated
really means, that the element array->data[array->len] exists and
is zeroed, and clear means that any unassigned elements obtained
through g_array_set_size (the only way to get unassigned elements
AFAICT) are zeroed. Added some macros to make the code more
obvoius. Also made GPtrArray zero elements after
g_ptr_array_set_size. This is done in a portbale way (assignment
of NULL instead of just memsetting it to zero), though that might
be more portability than we actually want.

EXTRA_DIST to let 'make distcheck' procude all the corresponding
files, which it silently fails to do currently.

* After finding the right thread library (containing
e.g. pthread_create) we now search for the right realtime library
(containing e.g. sched_get_priority_max). Makes the output of the
thread related libraries correct.
* gtimer.c (g_usleep): The current implementation of g_usleep
(simply calling select) doesn't work reliable for multi-threaded
programs on some platforms (bad omen for the main loop....), so I
changed the implementation for thread-using programs to wait for a
GCond for the specified amount of time (NB: sleep and usleep are
not MT-safe in general, because they often use signals).

2000-03-22 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gutils.c (g_get_current_dir): Ok, Marcus Brinkmann
<> convinced me, that 128 KB
path length might not be enough for the HURD. So I changed the
loop to at least avoid an integer overflow, which could happen at
beyond 2GB size ;-)
* Test for sched_yield as the native yield function
first. Corrected typo g_thread_sleep -> g_usleep. Corrected
message for the pthread_create test. Negative Priorities are
allowed (and used on Solaris), so consider
sched_get_priority_min failed only if it returns -1, not <0. Check
for sched_get_priority_min also in -lrt, if not found in -lpthread
alone and add -lrt to G_THREAD_LIBS then. Remove special case
handling of priorities for older solaris versions and posix
threads. Thanks to Wan-Teh Chang <> for suggesting
some of those changes.

Upgrade to libtool 1.3.4.
2000-03-21 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* glib.h,, gutils.h: always define G_GNUC_EXTENSION,
even when not needed by GLib. That's actually also the way, the
GLib reference manual describes that macro. Therefore I had to
remove the lonesome #include <glibconfig.h> in gutils.c, which
doesn't seem to be needed there however. This change should make
Ben Gertzfield <> happy.
* gutils.c: Furthermore two warnings in gutils.c were voided,
which crept in due to my last change.
* gutils.c (g_get_current_dir): Allocate only up to 128KB for a
pathname. While this is an arbitrary value just like 2048, it
seems to be enough (after all, even 4GB is an arbitrary value).
2000-03-20 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>

* Use AC_TRY_RUN instead of AC_TRY_LINK, to test for
real thread support. On solaris pthread_create can be linked to
even in -lc, but it doesn't work then.
* Don't use priorities for threads, when the
minimal/maximal priorities couldn't be determined at configure
*, gthread.c: Always define GSystemThread in
glibconfig.h to represent a system thread.
* Do not use native recursive threads, when
possibe. We use some features, that they do not expose (namely the
depth counter).
* glib.h, gthread.c: Redefined GStaticRecMutex. The functions are
now implemented in a different way, which should be way
faster. Alsothere are now functions g_static_rec_mutex_unlock_full
and g_static_rec_mutex_lock_full to leave/enter a recursive mutex
* gthread.c (g_thread_self): Do not test the system_thread to be
non-zero to speed things up.
* gthread.c (g_mutex_init): Therefore set the system_thread of the
main thread here.
* tests/thread-test.c: Rerun all tests once again, but this time
we fool the system into thinking, that the available thread system
is not native, but userprovided.
2000-03-13 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gqueue.c (g_queue_push_tail_link, g_queue_push_head_link): We

* glib.h, gthread.c: Changed the prototype of thread_create and
thread_self to return the system thread into provided memory

pthread_t, that is bigger than the biggest integral type there.
* gthread.c: system_thread is no longer a pointer, but an memory

- negative field widths
- %p for SIZEOF_VOID_P > 4 platforms

for erroring out on this, instead of just issueing a warning).
* glib.h (g_trash_stack_pop): use uncasted NULL again.
Fri Sep 17 10:24:45 1999 Tim Janik <>
* gmem.c (g_mem_chunk_compute_size) (g_mem_chunk_new): applied
patch from Soeren Sandmann <>, to force mem
chunk's area sizes to be a multitiple of atom_size, and to
eliminate the MAX_MEM_AREA restriction of 65536 bytes. we also
catch cases where users pass an area size < atom size with a
return_if_fail statement now (which is ok, because previously this
lead to memory corruption anyways).
Thu Sep 16 13:19:54 1999 Tim Janik <>

pointer to cure ANSI C++ error.
Mon Sep 13 23:25:59 1999 Tim Janik <>

certain failure conditions during debugging stage.

1999-07-23 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* grand.c (g_rand_new): Use /dev/urandom, as it doesn't block,
which /dev/random might do. Do not XOR the time, when getting the
seed form /dev/urandom, as this is good itself. Prevent the
initial seed from being zero, which causes the PRNG to produce
only zeros. Hints from Colin Plumb <>.

flag around the call to g_hook_free() to avoid spurious
warnings (happens during destruction phase).

* gmem.c: Fixed a stupid cut'n'paste error of mine. Thanks to
Friedrich Dominicus <>
1999-03-16 Timur Bakeyev <>
* Fix problem with pthread_create in libc, as running
"gcc test.c -l " is not legal.
1999-03-16 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* tests/type-test.c: Added a test for the
* Removed G_(U)?INT8_FORMAT again, as it can't be
used for scanf.
* Added the macros G_MAXU(SHORT|INT|LONG). I do not
know how to handle these on platforms with /usr/include/values.h,
but without /usr/include/limits.h. Please someone add this.

* Added the macros G_(U)?INT(8|16|32|64)_FORMAT to
use for printf and (much more important) scanf format strings for
the corresponding GLib types.
* glib.h Added G_(U)?(SHORT|INT|LONG)_FORMAT for consistency. It
however makes no sense to also provide G_(FLOAT|DOUBLE)_FORMAT, as
they are different for printf (f for both) and scanf (f for float,
lf for double). Defining G_INT_FORMAT makes sense however, as we
might want to define gint to something different than int someday
in the future. Idea from Sascha Brawer <>.

* gdate.c:
Commented out debugging output.
* tests/, tests/date-test.c:
Added test of the GDate module, based closely on testgdate.c.
* tests/
Bugfix - compile tests with @GLIB_DEBUG_FLAGS@.
1999-03-14 Raja R Harinath <>
* (glibconfig.h): Remove widechar tests and defines.
(fd_set): Change the grep for `fd_mask' to search for `fd_set'.
* gerror.c (fd_mask): Remove conditional typedef. It is not used
elsewhere in the file.
* gmain.c (fd_mask): Likewise.

* Test for posix threads first, then for dce threads.
1999-03-11 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Revamped the thread configure stuff. Now dce
threads (old posix draft) are recogniced. This is necessary,
because dce threads are in fact working quite differently from
posix threads. Also changed the conditions for checking for MT
safe functions a bit, because G_THREADS_IMPL_NONE still have to
compile thread safe. NOTE: Please do not commit my change to
glib-1-2/{acconfig.h,,config.h.win32} from 1999-03-03,
as the current change will take care of that too.

*, glib.h, gstack.c, gqueue.c,
tests/, tests/queue-test.c, tests/stack-test.c:
Added stack, queue ADTs and related tests.
* glib.h, glist.c:
New g_list_delete() function.

* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): add OS/2 changes.
change '\\' in HOME to '/'.
1999-03-03 Josh MacDonald <>
* glib.def: g_spaced_primes_closest was omitted here, so I
couldn't build Xdelta on Windows.
1999-03-01 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Fixed yet another bloody
implementation of getpwuid_r on AIX. Thanks to Olaf Dietsche
<>. I would like a configure
test better than that, but have no idea, how to do that easily.
Sat Feb 27 01:18:47 1999 Tim Janik <>
* ChangeLog: moved old ChangeLog to ChangeLog.pre-1-2, and started
new one.
* set glib version to 1.3.0.
