* glib/gslice.[hc]: added mem_error() and mem_assert() to test and

setup when the error occours.
removed G_SLICE_CONFIG_ALWAYS_FREE config option, fixed the code so
always freeing can be achieved by adjusting the working set time to
added G_SLICE_CONFIG_COLOR_INCREMENT to test different color increments
(mainly 0 and 1). reduced the minimum block size to 128 bytes, to
minimize wastage if small amounts of differently sized structrues are
allocated, this does come at a performance cost of roughly 5% though.
fixed up block alignment calculation, so it works for varying
block sizes. only use strerror() not g_strerror() since the latter
depends on working GQuark and GSlice.

performance benefit over g_slice_free1() now.

* glib/ Create also a console version of the

It's otherwise identical to gspawn-win32-helper.exe, except marked

* glib/gspawn-win32.c (do_spawn_directly, do_spawn_with_pipes):
Drop the dont_wait parameter. Its truth value correlated 100% with
the NULLness of the exit_status parameter anyway, so it's enough
to check whether exit_status is NULL. Invert the sense of the
dont_return_handle parameter and rename it to do_return_handle, to
make the code easier to read by avoiding double negations.
(g_spawn_sync_utf8, g_spawn_async_with_pipes_utf8): Modify calls
to do_spawn_with_pipes() accordingly.
(do_spawn_with_pipes): If we have a console, use the console
version of the helper program, otherwise use the GUI one. This
avoids extra console windows opening up in some situations. (In
case a console application uses the GUI gspawn-win32-helper.exe to
spawn another console application we would get a separate console
for the spawned console application).

* glib/gutils.h: Wrapping atexit() is a bad idea on Windows, where
the EXE and each DLL have their own atexit function chains.
#define g_atexit as atexit instead. This means it has a
better chance of doing what the caller wants. For instance,
gtkhtml calls g_atexit() registering a function in gtkhtml
itself. This caused a crash when g_atexit() was implemented as a
function in the GLib DLL. The gtkhtml DLL was already unloaded by
the time the GLib DLL got unloaded.
* glib/gutils.c: #undef the #define mentioned above, to also get a
real g_atexit() into the DLL for backward compatibility. Document
the Windows behaviour of g_atexit(), and document the varying ways
atexit() can behave in the context of dynamically loaded modules
on Unix.

2005-08-25 Tor Lillqvist <>
Make also the g_spawn*() functions take parameters in the GLib
file name encoding, i.e. UTF-8, on Windows. Has no impact on Unix
API or ABI. Like the other GLib API that was earlier changed to
use UTF-8 on Windows, the names of the functions that take UTF-8
have _utf8 suffixes added by using preprocessor macros in the
header file. The old names are kept for functions with the old
behaviour, taking parameters in the system codepage, for DLL ABI
* glib/gspawn.h: On Win32 add the suffix _utf8 to the names of the
g_spawn*() functions.
* glib/gspawn-win32.c: Use wide-char API on NT-based
Windows. Convert parameters from UTF-8 to wide chars (NT) or
system codepage (Win9x) and call the C library _wspawn*() or
spawn*() functions respectvely. Add DLL ABI stability versions
that take parameters in the system codepage.
* glib/gspawn-win32-helper.c: On NT-based Windows use the
wide-char versions of argv and envp, and use wide-char API to
change directory and spawn the program to run. Remove the verbose
debugging output, it was too complex to modify for the wide-char
features. (Just add temporary debugging printouts if needed, no
need to have them permanently in the source.)
