AUTHORS file for a log of modifications.
Sun Feb 21 14:01:00 1999 Dr Mike <>
* Made specfile generated, tweaked slightly
Thu Feb 18 08:24:12 1999 Tim Janik <>
* gmem.c (g_realloc): plugged a memory leak, reported by Koen D'Hondt
<> on 15 Oct 1998. allocate inital block from realloc.
1999-02-17 Elliot Lee <>
* glib.spec: Do --enable-debug=no for the .rpm's.
Wed Feb 17 17:04:06 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>

docs/glib-config.1: version=1.1.16
* Released GLib 1.1.16
1999-02-15 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* glib.h, glibconfig.h.win32, Changed signature of
all g_static_mutex_* functions to take a pointer rather than the
struct itself. This is not an issue at the moment, because those
funcs are really macros, but is it un'G'ish and might fall on our
feet in the future.
Mon Feb 15 07:45:54 1999 Tim Janik <>
* (--enable-debug): default to yes for development trees.
Mon Feb 15 06:18:58 1999 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: return guints instead of gints for g_hash_table_size
and g_hash_table_foreach_remove.
Wed Feb 10 12:01:42 1999 Tim Janik <>
* don't reset G_MODULE_IMPL, so it can be overridden
from the command line.
1999-02-10 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* glib.h: s/G_LOCK_DECLARE/G_LOCK_DEFINE/ throuhout glib. Added
G_LOCK_EXTERN macro to declare a lock externally.
Wed Feb 10 06:20:30 1999 Tim Janik <>
* gmutex.c (g_static_private_set): invoke destroy notifier when
overwriting values, initialize new array fields with NULL.
(g_static_private_free_data): do not skip destroy notification for
data == NULL.
* gutils.c (g_direct_equal): compare pointer values directly instead
of just their guint values which is a loosing conversion for
sizeof(gpointer)==8 systems.
(g_get_any_init): restructured code so we don't use endless loops like
while (1), which boil down to an ugly alias for goto.
strip ,.* from the real name.
February 9, 1999
. glist.c, gnode.c, gslist.c: allocate pools of 128 items instead
of 1024 items.
1999-02-08 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
*, acconfig.h: Changed the test for getpwuid_r to
exclude those systems (i.e. IRIX), that set ENOSYS after the call.
Test, if pthread_getspecific is posix like or something different,
as on PCThreads.
Sun Feb 7 21:56:00 1999 Owen Taylor <>
* gmem.c (g_mem_profile): Copy all elements
of the allocations[] array, including the last.
(Pointed out by "Matthew W. Samsonoff" <>)
1999-02-05 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Make the error message in case of a broken thread
system a bit more informative.
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Changed the error logic again, now
only leaving the memory doubling loop, when success is reached or
when the user isn't found or when the buffer is 32k big,
additionally now getpwuid will be run, if getpwuid_r didn't work
out properly. A warning is issued however.
Thu Feb 04 20:42:24 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glibconfig.h.win32 config.h.win32: Update GLIB_MICRO_VERSION.
1999-02-04 Christopher Blizzard <>
* glib.spec (Packager): Change my email address
Thu Feb 4 01:45:01 PST 1999 Shawn T. Amundson <>
* ChangeLog
docs/glib-config.1: version=1.1.15
* Released GLib 1.1.15
Tue Feb 02 00:08:54 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gmessages.c (g_log_default_handler): (Win32:) Don't call
ensure_stdout_valid (which would open an unneeded console window)
if we're calling a logging function. Define ensure_stdout_valid
as an empty macro on Unix.
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): (Win32:) Trust HOME first if defined,
Mon Feb 1 19:04:28 1999 Owen Taylor <>
* gmain.c (g_main_iterate): Release the main_loop
lock around calls to prepare() and check() so
that we are not holding the main loop lock
over user code.
1999-01-30 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Moved the check for MT safe function variants
after the determination of the MT cflags and use them there.
1999-01-29 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Fixed typo. Now HPUX 11 thread system detection
should work.
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Changed initial bufsize to 64. Should
solve some problems out there.
Wed Jan 27 23:21:50 CST 1999 Shawn T. Amundson <>
docs/glib-config.1: version=1.1.14
* Released GLib 1.1.14
1999-01-28 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Simplified test for posix threads,
systems, that provide /usr/include/pthread.h should also have the
posix thread library. This is to avoid writing down all the tests
twice. New test for thread system on HPUX 11. Info from Matt
Nottingham <>.
Wed Jan 27 20:39:49 PST 1999 Manish Singh <>
* acinclude.m4: Xsed isn't valid here, don't use it
* ltconfig: better file magic regexp for Linux libs
* gmodule/ arg, noinst_LTLIBRARIES doesn't make shared
libs, revert my previous change to this file
* docs/texinfo.tex: add it so automake doesn't whine
Wed Jan 27 01:57:19 1999 Tim Janik <>
* (G_MODULE_HAVE_DLERROR): applied patch from Andrej
Borsenkow <> to also check for dlsym() in system
libraries and -ldl, to catch systems that provide dlopen() in libc
and dlsym() in libdl. this is at least the case for Reliant UNIX
5.44 (labeling itself as SINIX).
Tue Jan 26 13:39:22 PST 1999 Manish Singh <>
* don't use backquotes in warning text
1999-01-26 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gdate.c (g_date_set_time): Removed the #warning about MT
unsafety without localtime_r.
* Moved it here.
Mon Jan 25 10:07:53 1999 Raph Levien <>
* (#define G_THREADS_IMPL...) Changed the #define,
adding the G_THREADS_IMPL_ prefix to $g_threads_impl_def because
it looked wrong to me and was breaking gimp compile.
Mon Jan 25 15:34:43 1999 Timur Bakeyev <>
*, gstrfuncs.c: Inverted logic of NO_SYS_SYGLIST_DECL -
now it's normal (see 1999-01-19 Josh MacDonald). Also, remove from
#include <signal.h> wrapper NO_SYS_SYGLIST - *sys_syglist[] declara-
tion hides there.
1999-01-25 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Do not use the thread libs, when searching for
some functions, as this might require glib to always be linked
with the thread libs on some platforms.
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Don't set errno to zero and use it
only as the error code, if the function returned a value less
0. It might happen, that the call succeeds, even though the errno
is set during the call (i.e. it first looks for a passwd file,
which is not found). Submitted by Michael Natterer
<>. BTW: Sorry for all the mess with that
`getpwuid_r' change, but it had to be done once.
Sun Jan 24 10:33:30 1999 Tim Janik <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): reverted raja's changes, since they leaked
a struct passwd contents buffer and for the rest mostly substituted a
while loop with a bunch of gotos.
restored the getpwuid() code to what we had after my recent clean ups
("Sat Jan 23 02:14:28 1999 Tim Janik"), module yosh's recent changes.
to feature solaris behaviour of directly returning errno, we don't
modify error anymore if it's > 0 and simply reset errno.
don't reset g_home_dir for !NATIVE_WIN32 && !NATIVE_WIN32.
1999-01-24 Raja R Harinath <>
* gutils.c
Hopefully got the error handling for `getpwuid_r' right.
Fix typo (change `pw == NULL' to `pw != NULL').
Sun Jan 24 00:36:22 EST 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
* ghash.c:
- Revert previous "fix" (which really just did things a
different way).
- (g_hash_table_remove): Don't need to support multiple values
for a single key.
* tests/hash-test.c:
Add test where hash function always returns a single value.
Add beginnings of tests for g_hash_table_foreach[_remove] and
Sat Jan 23 20:40:06 PST 1999 Manish Singh <>
* gutils.c: removed the #warning about MT without getpwuid_r
* and moved it here
Sat Jan 23 22:45:59 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
* ghash.c (g_hash_table_lookup_node, g_hash_table_lookup,
g_hash_table_insert, g_hash_table_remove,
- Fixed bug that overwrote nodes in hash buckets instead of
adding them to the hash bucket node list.
Hash tables now work as advertised.
- Use g_new0 instead of manual init.
- Space out code a bit for readability.
- Replaced "if (!hash_node) return;" with
"if (hash_node) {do stuff}".
Testing takes up less code space than explicit call to
'return' before end of function. (look at gcc -S)
Updated module header copyright to 1999.
New module macro G_HASH_BUCKET for (table,key)->bucket lookups.
* tests/hash-test.c:
- Add two new tests, one with strings as the keys and values, and
one with ints as the keys and values. Tests indirect (strings)
and direct (ints) hashing.
- Cleanup unused junk left over from testglib.c.
- Converted a g_print call to g_assert_not_reached.
- Updated copyright to 1999.
* testglib.c, tests/string-test.c:
- Init 'tmp_string' var to NULL, silencing uninit-var warning.
1999-01-23 Raja R Harinath <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init) [HAVE_GETPWUID_R]:
Rewrite not to look at `errno' if library call succeeds, since
`errno' is not reset to 0.
Sat Jan 23 16:17:04 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glibconfig.h.win32: Update the magic values for
pthread_mutex_t size and initializer bytes to match the
latest version of pthreads for Win32.
Sat Jan 23 02:14:28 1999 Tim Janik <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): cleaned up the errno mess for
GETPWUID. we especially don't want to g_error() out here!
the warning for G_THREADS_ENABLED and !HAVE_GETPWUID_R isn't
gcc related.
if !HAVE_PWD_H and !NATIVE_WIN32, g_free the home dir before
resetting it to NULL, why are we doing this anyways?
reordered code a bit so we always provide defaults (except
for g_home_dir).
Thu Jan 21 12:40:11 EST 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
* tests/{, string-test.c, strfunc-test.c}:
Separate string and strfunc tests, working towards goal of
having separate test for each of the GLib modules.
Add a couple GString length tests.
Thu Jan 21 09:36:05 EST 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
Use AC_PREREQ not AC_REQUIRE for autoconf version test.
1999-01-21 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Changed error handling again, as the
error is not always set in errno, it is the return value on some
systems. What an evil world.
Thu Jan 21 05:35:20 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>
* gstrfuncs.c: Include signal.h only when the signal names will be
Wed Jan 20 22:09:59 EST 1999 Mandrake <>
* / : made some adjustments for automake 1.4
and autoconf 2.13 (per suggestions made by Raja R Harinath
Wed Jan 20 20:33:14 EST 1999 Mandrake <>
* automake 1.4 and libtool 1.2d notices.
(maybe I'll write an actual test for automake 1.4 later)
Wed Jan 20 15:05:25 PST 1999 Manish Singh <>
* HACKING: new file
* since we require automake 1.4 now, ditch the build
top-level first and just use SUBDIRS
* gmodule/ use noinst_LTLIBRARIES instead of overriding
the install rule
Wed Jan 20 16:16:01 EST 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init):
Revert previous patch, move error value set line down to proper
place. Caught by Elliot Lee <>.
Wed Jan 20 20:48:58 GMT 1999 Adam D. Moss <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): All gtk apps were broken
here on my setup. I changed the error to a warning to at
least get things limping.
1999-01-20 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Use getpwuid_r with the right
signature, if available.
*, acconfig.h: Test for existance of getpwuid_r and
its signature.
Tue Jan 19 20:52:43 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>
* (EXTRA_DIST): Add new Win32 files.
* README.win32: Describe the conditional compilation macros.
* makefile.lcc: Removed.
1999-01-19 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Moved test for localtime_r and rand_r to a place
after the determination of the G_THREAD_LIBS and use them for
finding those functions, necessary on systems with a different C
library libc_r for threaded progs, like FreeBSD 2.2.x. Info from
Timur Bakeyev <>.
Tue Jan 19 00:44:24 1999 Josh MacDonald <>
* gstrfuncs.c (g_strsignal): The "extern char* sys_siglist"
declaration breaks systems with different declarations, like
mine (FreeBSD). So, I added a configuration variable to decide
whether the declaration is neccesary. Change also appears on
line 275 of
Sun Jan 17 17:13:54 CST 1999 Shawn T. Amundson <>
* Released GLib 1.1.13
docs/glib-config: ver=1.1.13
Mon Jan 18 00:02:46 1999 Tim Janik <>
* NEWS: updates for 1.1.13.
Sun Jan 17 17:15:59 1999 Tim Janik <>
* gtree.c (g_tree_traverse): removed assertion about rtree->root being
NULL, so this function can be applied to unpopulated trees as well, fix
provided by Simon Kagedal <>.
Sun Jan 17 11:17:19 1999 Christopher Blizzard <>
* glib.spec: add packager address
Sun Jan 17 11:10:05 1999 Christopher Blizzard <>
* glib.spec: increment version number to 1.1.13
Sun Jan 17 16:14:03 1999 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h (g_error): if !defined (G_LOG_DOMAIN) define G_LOG_DOMAIN as
((gchar*) 0) instead of ((void*) 0) to silence egcs C++ mode, reported
by Seth Alves <>.
Sun Jan 17 14:13:52 1999 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: added a define G_HOOK_DEFERRED_DESTROY, to substitute a noop
GHookList.hook_destroy function.
* ghook.c (g_hook_destroy_link): don't really call hook_destroy if it
is G_HOOK_DEFERRED_DESTROY. for the case where we invoke hook->destroy()
we now clean up the hook completely afterwards, i.e. data, func and
destroy are immediately set to NULL and hook_free can't play with that
values anymore.
* gmain.c (g_source_add): set hook_destroy to G_HOOK_DEFERRED_DESTROY,
instead of using an ugly _noop() hack, this is to avoid an uneccessary
function invocation. set hook_free to g_source_destroy_func, this way
we always invoke the destroy notifiers for user_data and source_data
after execution of dispatch(). thus, g_source_destroy_func() will always
be called within the main_loop lock (this wasn't really assured
before), and can release and reaquire the look around destroy notifier
Sun Jan 17 11:01:40 1999 Tor Lillqvist <>
* config.h.win32 glibconfig.h.win32: Increment version number here
Sun Jan 17 05:12:17 1999 Tim Janik <>
* incremented version number to 1.1.13, bin age 0,
interface age 0.
* glib.h: added hook_destroy member to struct _GHookList.
* ghook.c (g_hook_destroy_link): if the hook_list defines a hook_destroy
function, use that to marshal hook destruction notifiers.
* gmain.c: removed g_source_free_func and added g_source_destroy_func,
which marshalls the user_data and source_data destructors of sources
outside of the main_loop lock.
removed GIdleData struct since its sole member callback can be passed
as source_data directly.
added a gboolean return value to all g_source_remove* functions,
indicating whether the source could be removed, because these functions
don't issue warnings upon unseccessful removals themselves. this way at
least the caller gets a chance to warn upon failing removals.
(g_main_iterate): set in_check_or_prepare around calls to check() or
(g_main_pending): simply return FALSE if called from within check() or
(g_main_iteration): issue a warning if called from within check() or
prepare() and bail out with FALSE.
(g_main_run): likewise.
(g_source_remove_by_funcs_user_data): new function to remove sources by
user data and function table.
(g_idle_remove_by_data): new function to really remove idles only, since
g_source_remove_by_user_data would remove timeouts or other sources as
1999-01-16 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Merge in current Win32 version:
* README.win32: More text.
* config.h.win32 glibconfig.h.win32: Update to match the
corresponding generated files on Unix.
* makefile.msc: Update with new source files, and gthread
library. Use the compiler flag -MD instead of using -D_DLL and
/nodefaultlib:libc msvcrt.lib in the link phase.
* glib.def: Update to include new functions, drop removed ones.
* glib.h: Add comments about main loop and polling on Win32. (In
general, it's only for the GIMP's use.) Add Win32 IO Channel
functions. Remove the obsoleted old IO Channel stuff (which was
in #if 0 already).
* giowin32.c: New file.
* gmain.c: Include config.h, conditionalize <sys/time.h>
inclusion. Add g_poll implementation for Win32 (only for the
GIMP's needs for now, it's hard or even impossible to be as clean
and generic as on Unix). Implement g_get_current_time on Win32. If
threads aren't supported, don't try to wake up main thread's
loop. On Win32, use a semaphore and not a pipe to wake up the main
* gmessages.c: On Win32, allocate a console window if the standard
output handle is invalid before writing to stdout, and reopen stdout
to that console window.
* giochannel.c: Conditionalize unistd.h inclusion. Some indentation
* gstrfuncs.c: Include <signal.h>.
* gutils.c: On Win32, also check the HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH
environment variables.
Sun Jan 17 01:06:38 1999 Timur Bakeyev <>
* Add support for FreeBSD 2.2.x macro _THREAD_SAFE.
Wed Jan 13 11:27:24 PST 1999 Manish Singh <>
* glib.h: don't use inline for !__GNUC__ case with g_warning,
g_error, and g_message wrappers since some compilers throw
away arguments in this case

* gdate.c: #warning isn't portable, check for gcc
1999-01-12 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gdate.c: Include config.h to get HAVE_LOCALTIME_R macro.
* Moved function check back to the place, they've
been before.
1999-01-11 Jeff Garzik <>
* gstrfuncs.c:
Do not use vasprintf.
*, glib.h, testglib.c, tests/.cvsignore,
tests/, tests/alloca-test.c:
Do not use alloca.
1999-01-11 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Test for localtime_r only after including the
right MT enabling CFLAGS (i.e. -D_REENTRANT on most systems).
* Find right thread system on DG/UX. Thanks to Marc
J. Fraioli <> for hint. Finally removed the
stuff for -fstack-check, that didnt work anyway.
* gdate.c (g_date_set_time): Emit warning, if no localtime_r
function is available on thread enabled systems. Define ptm only,
if really needed, and assert on it.
Sat Jan 9 15:08:44 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
* testglib.c:
Make all aux functions static.
* tests/, tests/dirname-test.c, tests/type-test.c:
New tests dirname-test and type-test, from testglib.
Sat Jan 9 13:53:00 1999 Jeff Garzik <>
Add checks for vasprintf, localtime_r.
* gdate.c (g_date_set_time):
Use localtime if localtime_r is not available.
* gstrfuncs.c (g_strdup_vprintf):
Use glibc vasprintf if possible; it's a bit faster than using
GLib routines, and makes output code a bit smaller.
* acconfig.h:
Remove HAVE_VSNPRINTF and HAVE_VPRINTF. autoheader picks these
up automatically and puts them in
Thu Jan 7 15:14:08 1999 Owen Taylor <>
* gmain.c (g_source_free_func): Call the source-specific
free function when the hook is freed not when it
is destroyed; this fixes a bug where a timeout destroyed
from itself would access already freed data.
1999-01-07 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* gutils.c (g_get_any_init): Here we must replace getpwuid by
getpwuid_r, but as I do not know how for now, I just made a FIXME
note ;-)
* gdate.c (g_date_set_time): localtime --> localtime_r to make it
thread safe.
* We do not need to check for broken solaris mutex
intitializer any longer. Provide a macro to show the used thread
implementation. Not nice, but this is needed until thread support
is completed here inside glib.

Mon Jan 4 14:38:11 1999 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: adjusted the g_strdup_a, g_strndup_a and g_strconcat3_a macros
so their arguments get only evaluated once. changed g_strconcat3_a to
have the same semantics as g_strconcat, i.e. if a certain argument is
NULL, the rest of the parameter list is skipped.
* tests/alloca-test.c: removed #if/#endif G_HAVE_ALLOCA, we need to be
able to compile on all systems. added test for g_strconcat() semantics.

* gmain.c: there was a reference count race for hooks during invocation

out with g_hook_first_valid() and iterate with g_hook_next_valid(),
g_hook_first_valid() will now return a referenced hook, and
g_hook_next_valid() will "eat" that, and eventually transfer it to

* Start at adding thread-safety. (mostly work
of Sebastian Wilhelmi <>)
- now looks for a system thread implementation.
Currently support is included for POSIX threads
and Solaris threads. The default support is built
into a separate library -lgthread.
- The thread implementation can be modified by passing
a vector of functions g_thread_init().
- The default or supplied functions are used to
implement a small set of thread functions for
mutexes, condition variables, and thread-private
- GLib now uses these functions to provide thread
safety. (In the sense that all global static
data is locked... individual structures must still
be locked by the caller.)

* makefile.msc: win32 patch from Tor Lillqvist (glib-tml-981027-0),
fixes some minor win32 buglets
Mon Oct 26 22:12:03 PST 1998 Manish Singh <>
* glib.h: reimplemented the endian stuff, using inline asm
for x86. #define g_htonl and friends.
* testglib.c: new tests for the endian stuff
* care for AIX in gmodule linker flags test (from
Joel Becker <>). Check $host_os for linux
instead of existance of /usr/include/linux
* gutils.c: buh-bye evil warning. Thou hast been #ifdef'd out
of thine existance!
Tue Oct 27 03:00:50 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: removed dummy structure definitions for struct _GCache,
_GTree, _GTimer, _GMemChunk, _GListAllocator and _GStringChunk.
* gutils.c: implement glib's inline functions _after_ all include
statements have been processed.
removed Tor's MAXPATHLEN check since there already was one supplied
further down in this file.
(LibMain): special cased the #ifdef __LCC__ case for NATIVE_WIN32,
since lcc maybe used on other platforms as well. why in hell is this
stuff required?
(g_get_any_init): for windows, if the user name is supplied, use it as
realname also.
in general, if there is no homedir specified, use the tmpdir that
we already figured.
* gtimer.c (g_timer_elapsed): changed a g_assert() statement to
* applied glib-tml-981020-0.patch for WIN32 portability, added some
comments and g_return_if_fail() statements, minor indentation fixes.
ChangeLog entry from Tor Lillqvist is appended.
* glib.h (struct dirent): use lower case structure members.
* glib.h:
* makefile.lcc:
* makefile.msc:
1998-10-20: Tor Lillqvist <>
* README.win32 glib.def gmodule.def
* glibconfig.h.win32 gmodule/gmoduleconf.h.win32:
New files for the Windows port. The .def files list exported
symbols for the Microsoft linker and compatibles.
Added checks for some platform-dependent headers: pwd.h sys/param.h
sys/select.h sys/time.h sys/times.h unistd.h, and the function lstat.
* gerror.c:
Conditionalized inclusion of system-dependent headers. Changes
for Windows: no gdb to do a stack trace. Just call abort().
* glib.h:
Changes for Windows:
platform-dependent file name syntax elements. Added macros
platform-dependent search path syntax conventions.
Added pragmas for Microsoft C to make it more pedantic.
Marked GLib's global variables for export from DLL.
Added the function g_strescape that escapes backslashes.
Added functions g_path_is_absolute and g_path_skip_root to
handle platform-dependent file name syntax.
Added the function g_getenv that expands environment variables
that contain references to other environment variables, as is
typical on Windows NT.
Added the GIOChannel structure which is used to encapsulate the
IPC mechanism used by the GIMP's plug-ins, and possibly other
things later. On Unix a GIOChannel encapsulates just a file
descriptor. On Windows it contains a file handle from _pipe() and a
few other things related to the implementation of gdk_input_add
and GIMP plug-in communication. Subject to change.
Removed duplicate declarations of the version variables.
For the Microsoft compiler, declare own implementation of
ftruncate and the <dirent.h> functions.
* gmem.c:
Define a symbolic name for the profiling table size.
* gmessages.c:
Conditionalized inclusion of unistd.h. On Windows, output using
stdio to stdout.
* gscanner.c:
Conditionalized inclusion of unistd.h. Added changes for
Microsoft C. Added CR to the skipped character set. Added small
workaround for MSC compiler bug in g_scanner_cur_value.
* gstrfuncs.c:
Added the function g_strescape, which escapes the backslash
character. Needed especially when printing Windows filenames.
* gtimer.c:
Conditionalized inclusion of unistd.h and sys/time.h. Added
implementations for Windows.
* gutils.c:
Conditionalized inclusion of platform-dependent headers. Use
the platform-independent file name syntax macros.
Conditionalize code on platform-dependent features. Added the
functions g_path_is_absolute g_path_skip_root and g_getenv.
Added the GIOChannel-related functions. Added
compiler-dependent Unix compatibility functions for Windows.
* makefile.lcc makefile.msc:
New files. Compiler-specific makefiles for LCC-Win32 and
Microsoft C. Only Microsoft C is actually supported currently.
* testglib.c:
Added pathname check cases for Windows. Added workaround for
bug in the Microsoft runtime library. Improved some tests a bit.

* Released GLib 1.1.4
* docs/
* docs/.cvsignore
* docs/glib-config.1:
* docs/glib.texi: Moved docs from gtk and created glib-config.1
from gtk-config.1 in gtk
* sanity_check: added in docs directory, change rule 'release'
to 'snapshot' and created a new 'release' rule for doing the
distribution. Added in a 'sanity' rule.
* INSTALL: Updated for the release
Sun Oct 25 07:30:10 1998 Tim Janik <>
* gscanner.c:
(g_scanner_get_char): no more characters are available if read() returns
anything less than 1, not only on 0 return.
* glib.h:
* gstrfuncs.c: final API cleanup of string arrays to suit sopwith's
argument order requirements.
(g_strsplit): renamed from g_str_array_split().
(g_strjoinv): renamed from g_str_array_joinv(), string array is
now passed as last parameter. removed `const' qualifier from string
array pointer (again).
(g_strjoin): new function from sopwith to concatenate strings with
an additional seperator.
(g_strfreev): renamed from g_str_array_free.
Sat Oct 24 22:23:04 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* gnode.c: small fix to g_node_children_foreach to make it work right.
From Paco Moya <>
Wed Oct 21 19:22:58 1998 Tim Janik <>
* (G_MODULE_HAVE_DLERROR): reverted part of the changes
from Sebastian Wilhelmi (1998-10-20). don't specify a specific loading
behaviour (i.e. RTLD_NOW) when we are not sure whether it is supplied.
changed the return value from (!f2 && f1) to (!f2 || f1) so we default
to not needing an underscore. reverted the extra plugin.c building,
because .lo files are not ELF libraries, this can't work. This needs
further investigation on Solaris...
Wed Oct 21 17:03:05 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gstrfuncs.c: API cleanups of the new g_str* functions for consistency
with the existing naming scheme for g_str* functions. grouped the g_str*
functions that will return a newly allocated string seperatedly. all of
the in_place arguments were skipped, the caller is supposed to pass a
g_strdup()ed string if he wants to retrive a new copy. indentation and
coding style fixups. added some g_return_if_fail() statements.
string array functions are prefixed with g_str_array_.
(g_strdelimit): return the modified string like all other g_str*
functions, that operate in place.
(g_strchug): renamed from g_str_chug(), removed in_place argument.
(g_strchomp): renamed from g_str_chomp(), removed in_place argument.
(g_strstrip): renamed from g_str_strip(), removed in_place argument.
(g_str_array_join): renamed from g_strconcatv(), since it actually
operates on a string array and has totaly different semantics from
g_strconcat(). check for separator != NULL, don't segfault if the first
string is NULL. removed the `const' from the string array that's passed,
so users can operate on gchar** string arrays.
(g_str_array_split): renamed from g_str_split() because we actually
produce a string array. reimplemented this function for efficiency.
removed macro aliases g_str_joinv and g_str_join.
1998-10-20 Elliot Lee <>
* glib.h, gstrfuncs.c: Move string join/split/free routines from
libgnome/gnome-string, rename, and add g_str_chug.
1998-10-20 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* made the check for needed _ in module's func-names
work on solaris. (G_MODULE_NEED_USCORE must be set outside
AC_CACHE_VAL, dlopen(0,0) refused to work on solaris).
Tue Oct 20 03:32:58 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* acconfig.h: added test for endianness
* glib.h: #define endian macros for system and some conversions
between byte order
Thu Oct 8 06:47:27 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gdataset.c: removed functions g_dataset_id_set_destroy and
g_datalist_id_set_destroy and macros g_dataset_set_destroy and
added new functions g_dataset_id_remove_no_notify and
g_datalist_id_remove_no_notify plus associated macros
g_dataset_remove_no_notify and g_datalist_remove_no_notify, which
will remove a certain data portion without invocation of its destroy
notifier, this should only be used in very controled circumstances.
Wed Oct 7 05:31:24 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
removed the #pragma } statement after extern "C" {. use
(c-set-offset 'inextern-lang 0) to fixup emacs cc-mode indentation.
* glib.h:
* ghook.c: API and code cleanups. changed the G_HOOK_ACTIVE and
changed the G_HOOK_IS_ACTIVE() and G_HOOK_IS_IN_CALL() macros to
fixed the g_hook_find* functions, so they iterate over non-active
hooks as well.
(g_hook_next_valid): added an extra argument gboolean may_be_in_call,
which indicates whether G_HOOK_IN_CALL() hooks are considered valid
or not. these two functions are meant as iterators for the hook list
invocation, so they need to a) provide functionality to implement
may_recurse bahaviour and b) only walk active hooks.
Tue Oct 6 14:29:47 1998 Tim Janik <>
* gmem.c (g_malloc0): fixed memory offsett when ENABLE_MEM_CHECK is
defined and ENABLE_MEM_PROFILE is not (patch from Martin Pool
Sat Oct 3 01:18:10 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* ghook.c:
(g_hook_list_marshal): properly handle the first valid hook to call,
it maybe IN_CALL already.
(g_hook_list_marshal): minor name change.
Fri Oct 2 23:21:21 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* ghook.c: renamed to GHook.hook_id so we don't get troubles
with ObjC which reserves "id" as a keyword (Raja R Harinath
Wed Sep 30 10:53:03 1998 Tim Janik <>
* added ghook.c.
* glib.h:
* ghook.c: generic callback maintenance functions.
* glib.h: define G_GNUC_UNUSED.
Fri Sep 25 00:04:37 1998 Tim Janik <>
* version bump to 1.1.4, binary age 0, interface age 0.
* glib.h (struct _GScanner): dumped peeked_char and text_len in favour
of *text_end and *buffer for buffered read()s.
* gscanner.c: changed peeking and retrival of next character so we
have buffered reads. fixed minor bug with number parsing error
reporting. made some static!!! variables local ones (why did we use
static temporary variables in the lowlevel tokenization code anyways?).
Mon Sep 21 23:23:10 CDT 1998 Shawn T. Amundson <>
* Released GLib 1.1.3
Mon Sep 21 07:43:13 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: added g_renew() which works as g_new() for g_realloc().
Mon Sep 21 02:22:12 1998 Tim Janik <>
* NEWS file update for upcoming release of GLib + GModule
version 1.1.3, binary age 0, interface age 0. (GModule uses
the same version numbers as GLib.)
* glib.h: swap the inclusion of of float.h and limits.h to work
around a egcs 1.1 oddity on Solaris 2.5.1 (fix provided by
Per Abrahamsen <>).
* glib.h:
* gscanner.c: renamed the GValue union to GTokenValue, this should
not affect source compatibility in most cases.
* ghash.c: added some g_return_if_fail() statements. make
g_hash_table_lookup_node() an inline function so we save an extra
function invocation on lookups.
Sun Sep 20 18:21:46 1998 Owen Taylor <>
* Patch to libtool-1.2b to make --disable-static
Sun Sep 20 02:09:44 1998 Josh MacDonald <>
* glib.h: New function g_hash_table_foreach_remove is similar to
g_hash_table_foreach, but the callback's return value indicates
whether to remove the element (if TRUE) or not (if FALSE).
Returns the number of elements deleted.
Fri Sep 18 11:31:50 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* glib.h
* gstrfuncs.c: added g_memdup implementation
Fri Sep 18 18:46:14 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gdataset.c: make the datalists a safe type (not using a generic
gpointer) by expecting a GData* argument in the g_datalist functions.
provide g_dataset_foreach() and g_datalist_foreach() functions that
allow a GDataForeachFunc function to walk the data lists.
(g_dataset_destroy_internal): made this function truely reentrant (i.e.
can be called from within destroy notifiers as well).
the *_foreach functions are _not_ reentrant (unless all the other
dataset and datalist functions).
Fri Sep 18 03:41:20 1998 Tim Janik <>
* gtree.c (g_tree_new): check for key_compare_func != NULL (reported
by Michal Kara).
Thu Sep 17 18:55:46 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* removed from repository
* install-sh
* missing
* mkinstalldirs: updated to latest automake version
Thu Sep 17 06:36:25 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gdataset.c: implemented g_datalist_* along the lines of g_dataset,
but operates on an opaque gpointer *datalist; pointer, e.g. for the
implementation of GtkObject named data.
we cache a certain portion of the already freed data entries now, to
gain a slight performance improve with data reallocation.
Tue Sep 15 14:57:30 1998 Owen Taylor <>
* l*: Update to libtool-1.2b,
change library versioning scheme to drop LT_RELEASE
from the -l line, while keeping it in the soname.
Fri Sep 11 02:11:46 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: explicitely include the prototypes for inline functions
to cure gcc warnings for -Wmissing-prototypes.
Wed Sep 9 02:52:04 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* added -posix check for NeXTStep
Tue Sep 8 05:04:06 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: abandon the use of ATEXIT(), we keep the fallback
macros for backwards compatibility. people ought to use g_atexit().
* gutils.c (g_atexit): new function to take over the implementation
of ATEXIT. this function is guarranteed to succeed, similar to
Mon Sep 7 20:07:38 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* comment the -std1 check and save LIBS properly
Mon Sep 7 07:53:21 1998 Tim Janik <>
* check for all three inline keywords individually.
* glib.h: inlining hassle. for compilers that don't allow the `inline'
keyword, mostly because of strict ANSI C compliance or dumbness, we try
to fall back to either `__inline__' or `__inline'.
we define G_CAN_INLINE, if the compiler seems to be actually *capable*
to do function inlining, in which case inline function bodys do make
sense. we also define G_INLINE_FUNC to properly export the function
prototypes if no inlinig can be performed. we special case most of the
stuff, so inline functions can have a normal implementation by defining
G_INLINE_FUNC to extern and G_CAN_INLINE to 1.
* ltconfig: (compiler PIC flag test): special case linux for non
aout systems to honour lcc's position independant code (cases
"linux*aout)" and "linux*)" got added). (this needs to go into
libtool which does an advanced test, checking for __LCC__).
* take $CC=lcc into account by invoking automake with
--include-deps so lcc isn't scared by gcc's auto-dependancy
generation code. care about $ACLOCAL_FLAGS. optionally feature
* minor fixups in other places to cure some of lcc's warnings.
Sun Sep 6 19:08:53 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* added -std1 check for ANSI compliance (from gtk)
Sun Sep 6 12:31:50 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* glib.h: provide proper ATEXIT behavior on NeXTStep by !atexit
Sat Sep 5 18:03:36 1998 Tom Tromey <>
* gutils.c (GLIB_INLINE): Define.
* glib.h (GLIB_INLINE): New define.
(g_bit_nth_msf): Use it. Also, add prototype.
(g_bit_storage): Likewise.
(g_bit_storage): Likewise.
Sat Sep 5 04:40:02 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
(g_chunk_new0): use g_mem_chunk_alloc0() to allocate the memchunk,
so the correct size of the memchunk is allocated with 0's and not
a memory portion of the size of the desired type.
* gmem.c: new function g_mem_chunk_alloc0() which will initialize
a memory area allocated with g_mem_chunk_alloc() with 0's.
Wed Sep 2 19:13:28 1998 Owen Taylor <>
* garray.c glib.h (g_array_[ap/pre]pend_vals): make
data argument const.
Wed Aug 26 06:32:40 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gstrfuncs.c: new function g_strnfill() to return a new string
of specified length, filled with a specific character.
Tue Sep 1 23:46:31 1998 Josh MacDonald <>
* testglib.c (main): Update the array tests. Reduce the number of
iterations for the prepend test from 10000 to 100 since it is
O(n^2) and was taking longer than I would like to wait.
* garray.c: I've worked on the GArray interface, mostly. It was
seriously broken before and I hate to do it, but this is going to
break some code. It is important to do this now, because more and
more people are starting to use glib and the interface was both
broken and inconsistent. First, rename the _truncate functions of
both the GArray and GPtrArray classes to _set_size, since this
function can also be used to extend the arrays. GArray now
accepts two more initialization arguments: clear and element_size.
Instead of providing the type to each access function, the array
now stores the element size. Clear, if set, causes the library to
zero element's memory as the array expands. The major broken-ness
here was that array->len was in bytes, not elements. Now, since
the array knows its element size, array->len is correct and I have
removed the g_array_length macro. The only macro which now
accepts the type as an argument is g_array_index, which casts the
element to the right type--this interface does not change. The
append and prepend functions simply need the types removed.
g_ptr_array_remove_index now returns the removed element.
* gprimes.c (g_spaced_primes_closest): Move this function out of
ghash.c and rename it from g_hash_closest_prime. Fix the primes
so that they are actually prime (they weren't all -- isn't that
Mon Aug 24 02:08:56 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gstring.c:
* gstrfuncs.c:
(g_vsprintf): removed this function which was not publically
exported in glib.h. to export it, it should have been named
differently in the first place, since its semantics differ from
vsprintf(). apart from that, it was a possible cause for
problems since it worked on a previously allocated memory area and
was used in a lot places of glib. exporting it would have been a
guararant for problems with threaded programs.
(g_printf_string_upper_bound): exported this function to return
a string size, guarranteed to be big enough to hold the fully
expanded format+args string. added 'q', 'L' and 'll' flag handling.
in fact, the newly allocated area is in most cases much bigger than
(g_strdup_vprintf()): new function returning a newly allocated string
containing the contents of *format and associated args (size is
calculated with g_printf_string_upper_bound()).
(g_strdup_printf): new function which wraps g_strdup_vprintf().
* check for va_copy() or __va_copy() alternatively.
check whether va_lists can be copyied by value.
* glib.h: provide a definition for G_VA_COPY.
* glib.h:
* gmessages.c:
pass va_lists by value, not by reference, since this causes problems
on platforms that implement va_list as as arrays. internaly, use
G_VA_COPY (new_arg, org_arg); va_end (new_arg); to produce a second
va_list variable, if multiple passes are required. changed all
* glib.h:
* gerror.h:
renamed g_debug() to g_on_error_query(), cleaned up a bit.
renamed g_stack_trace() to g_on_error_stack_trace() since both
functions cluttered different namespaces.
there is an appropriate comment in glib.h now that explains the
unix and gdb specific dependencies of both functions.
removed g_attach_process().
g_on_error_stack_trace() should probably be handled with caution,
i've seem several different linux versions (2.0.x) become unstable
after invocation of this function.
1998-08-18: Elliot Lee <>
* In gmem.c, add the ability to exclude memory chunks from the
memory profiling information.
Tue Aug 18 18:23:09 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* glib.h
* gstrfuncs.c: added g_strndup
Tue Aug 18 04:40:17 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gmessages.c: new function g_log_set_always_fatal() to set an
additional fatal_mask for log levels that are considered to be fatal
globally (required by gtk). since this mask is not domain-associated,
it is restricted to the log levels, introduced by glib itself.
* gmem.c:
* grel.c:
* gtree.c (g_tree_node_check):
don't use g_print() calls for informational/debugging output,
but log all this stuff through g_log() with G_LOG_LEVEL_INFO.
libraries shouldn't use printf(), g_print() or g_printerr() at all.
Tue Aug 18 02:46:44 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h (__STRICT_ANSI__): if __STRICT_ANSI__ is defined, make
`inline' a noop, since strict ANSI rules don't permit `inline'.
Mon Aug 17 15:21:42 1998 Tim Janik <>
* grel.c: made private functions static.
Sun Aug 16 23:23:46 CDT 1998 Shawn T. Amundson <>

Mon Aug 17 01:46:14 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.m4: feature an extra MODULES parameter, so glib-config can
be invoked with the "gmodule" argument.
* glib.h: changed the log level to G_LOG_LEVEL_CRITICAL for all
g_return*_if_fail statements, and made them issue a message
like "assertion `%s' failed".

Sun Aug 16 20:28:27 1998 Tim Janik <>
* version bump to 1.1.3, binary age 0, interface age 0.

g_bit_nth_lsf, g_bit_nth_msf and g_bit_storage.
Fri Aug 13 14:23:37 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gmessages.c:
revised the message handling system, which is now based on a new
mechanism g_log*. most of the assertment macros got adapted to
feature the new g_log() call with an additional specification of
the log level in a preprocessor macro G_LOG_DOMAIN. if G_LOG_DOMAIN
is undefined upon the includion of glib.h, it'll be defined with a
value of (NULL) and thus preserves the original bahaviour for
warning and error messages. the message handler setting functions
for g_warning, g_error and g_message are only provided for backwards
compatibility and might get removed somewhen.
* feature the G_LOG_DOMAIN macro to set the log domain
to "GLib" upon compilation. we currently have to add this definition
to the DEFS variable.
* testglib.c: we need an ugly #undef G_LOG_DOMAIN at the start
of this file currently, since automake doesn't support per target
_CFLAGS yet.
* glib.h: changed some gints to gbooleans, made a few const corrections,
removed some superfluous G_STMT_START{}G_STMT_END wrappers, added some
in other required places.
* gnode.c:
return (node), so these macros/functions can be usefully chained with
Mon Aug 10 17:56:11 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <>
* glib.h: it's GTime now, and it's back!
Mon Aug 10 02:17:19 1998 Tim Janik <>
* minor hack to cause SUBDIRS (gmodule) to be build
last. we do this by making all-recursive-am depend on all-am.
Sun Aug 9 15:56:11 1998 Tim Janik <>
* added GModule checks. generate files in gmodule/.
* support library specifications `glib' and `gmodule'.
