* glib/gunidecomp.[ch] glib/ Patch
from Andrew Taylor to optimize the decomposition table
to eliminate relocations and save space. (#64982)
2001-11-18 Hans Breuer <>
* glib/glib.def :
* glib/ : remove g_log_domain_glib usage/export
* tests/ : add iochannel-test
Sat Nov 17 17:21:57 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/ glib/*.c glib/gmessages.h: Get
rid of g_log_domain_glib variable in favor of just
using a string constant.
Sat Nov 17 14:10:35 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/gbsearcharray.h: Include gtypes.h not gobject/gtype.h
* glib/glib-object.h gobject/*.h: Prevent headers from
being included directly except when compiling GObject.
* gobject/gvaluecollector.h: Include glib-object.h so that
this file can be included directly, since we don't
include it _from_ glib-object.h.
* gobject/gtype.c: Remove struct _GValue hack since we
now include glib/gvaluecollector.h which simply pulls in
2001-11-15 Matthias Clasen <>

before using it.
2001-11-15 Tor Lillqvist <>

here, too.
* tests/ Remove leftover comment that claimed
mainloop-test is removed.
2001-11-14 Matthias Clasen <>

g_alloca() like we provide g_new() on top of g_malloc().
Tue Nov 13 21:25:35 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/{,gunibreak.c,gunibreak.h,
gunichartables.h, gunicomp.h, gunidecomp.[ch],
guniprop.c}: Patch from Andrew Taylor to improve
tables and reduce relocations by using indices
rather than pointers. (#64433)
* tests/unicode-normalize.c (main): Fix for changes
to g_strsplit().
2001-11-12 Darin Adler <>

Mon Nov 12 03:01:28 2001 Tim Janik <>
* glib/gscanner.c (g_scanner_eof): G_TOKEN_ERROR is also an end
of stream condition.
2001-11-10 Tor Lillqvist <>

2001-11-08 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/gwin32.c: Don't define LANG_AZERI etc in case those aren't
defined in the headers (MSVC 5.0).
(g_win32_getlocale): Instead, surround uses of those with
#ifdef. Those MSVC 5.0 users that want to build a GLib that
recognizes those languages should download the Platform SDK and
use the headers from it.
2001-11-07 Peter Williams <>

* glib/gdir.[ch]: Indentation fixes, some rewriting of docs to
conform to gtk-doc standard.
* glib/gdir.[ch] (g_dir_close): Remove the boolean
return value. What would you do if closing failed?
What would the user do if you printed a warning
message "closing directory %s failed"?
2001-11-04 Hans Breuer <>
* glib/gdir.[hc] : (new files) simplified wrapper around dirent
functions to improve portability of downstream libs/apps

Thu Nov 1 21:48:43 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* tests/mainloop-test.c (recurser_idle): Recurse
with may_block = FALSE, so we don't get into
the pathology where the recurser_idle recurses
for 10 iterations, and the only thing that is
running is the recurser idle, which adds
another recursion for each of those 10 iterations
* tests/mainloop-test.c (create_crawler): Fix race
condition where a crawler source could be destroyed
before it was added to the crawler array.
* test/ Add mainloop-test back.
2001-11-01 Marius Andreiana <>
* Added ro (Romanian) to ALL_LINGUAS
2001-10-31 Havoc Pennington <>
* glib/gmain.c (g_main_loop_run): fix to the locking so we don't
2001-10-31 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* Make --with-threads=none mean, that we want thread
support, but no default thread implementation. This also was the
original intention, but disapeared around 1998... So it doesn't
seem to be the most requested feature, but we went far to make it
possible in the code, so I resurrected this feature.
* Describe the --enable-gc-friendly, --disable-threads
and --with-threads options of configure.
* glib/gmain.c (g_main_context_acquire, g_main_context_release,
g_main_context_wait): Use the right conditional (G_THREADS_ENABLED
instead of G_THREAD_ENABLED). Also remove wrong
return-statement. Unfortunately mainloop-test still does fail. Many
thanks to Andrea Fazekas <> for spotting
this. (#63455)

* glib/gmessages.c: Conditionalise definition of args2
depending on the definition of HAVE_VSNPRINTF to avoid
compiler warning.
* gobject/testgruntime.c
* tests/patterntest.c: Include <string.h> to avoid warnings.
Mon Oct 29 11:29:37 2001 Owen Taylor <>

2001-10-23 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Typo.
* Minor update to correspond to what
configure now generates.
* glib/ (Win32): If we have built the MSVC import
library, install it. Install the gcc import library. Also support
* glib/gutils.h: Add macros G_WIN32_DLLMAIN_FOR_DLL_NAME and
G_HARDCODED_PATH_WRAPPER. These are used to avoid hardcoding path
names into Windows DLLs.
* glib/gutils.c: Use them for GLIB_LOCALE_DIR.
* glib/gwin32.c (get_package_directory_from_module): Plug a small
memory leak. Minor code reordering.
(g_win32_get_package_installation_subdirectory): Allow empty subdir.
2001-10-19 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Fix test for lib.exe. Can't set ms_librarian
before calling AC_CHECK_PROG, as it doesn't actually check
anything if the result variable has been preset...

Fri Oct 12 18:24:02 2001 Tim Janik <>
* glib/gpattern.[hc]: make struct _GPatternSpec and GMatchType
(g_pattern_equal): new function to return equality of two patterns
(required because GPatternSpec is private now).
(g_pattern_spec_new): fix bug wrg wildcard counting which produced
incorrect pattern specs (discovered by Matthias Clasen).
optimized code so we just keep one compiled pattern string now.
correctly canonicalize patterns. reduce string walks, optimize
decision about MATCH_ALL vs. MATCH_ALL_TAIL.
(g_pattern_match_string): call just g_pattern_match() with NULL
reversed string.
(g_pattern_match): allow NULL reversed strings now, reverse_dup
strings on demand.

2001-09-30 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/gwin32.c
* glib/gwin32.h
* glib/glib.def: Remove own implementation of dirent
functions. Instead, gcc (mingw) users should go ahead and use the
<dirent.h> included with the mingw gcc, and the dirent functions
included in libmingw32, while MSVC users can use the same (public
domain) code, extracted from mingw-runtime sources and placed in
* glib/gwin32.c (get_package_directory_from_module,
g_win32_get_package_installation_directory): Use static lock to
protect static hash table.

* Add quotes around test values. This fixes a minor
annoying warning if platform is not win32.
2001-09-27 Manish Singh <>
* glib/grand.c (g_rand_new): fix typo (#if->#ifdef) so it compiles
2001-09-24 Bruno Haible <>
* glib/gwin32.c (g_win32_getlocale): When the sublangid is
SUBLANG_DEFAULT, return the locale of the language's main country,
not a country-neutral locale. E.g. "en_US" instead of "en". Add
(China == CN, CH == Switzerland). Ignore empty environment
variable values.
2001-09-28 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/makefile.{mingw,msc}.in: Add localcharset.o. Just copy the
source file from libcharset and compile in this directory.
* glib/giochannel.c: Mark rest of g_set_error strings for
translation, too.
* glib/giowin32.c: Add some debugging output functions, call them
when debugging.
(create_events, g_io_win32_msg_write): Free message fetched with
g_win32_error_message ().
(g_io_win32_check): Indentation fixes.
(g_io_win32_fd_read,g_io_win32_sock_read): Don't always return
G_IO_STATUS_NORMAL. Do return G_IO_STATUS_EOF if we got 0 bytes,
like on Unix. This helps making the test programs run
* glib/gmain.c (g_poll): Return the code ifdeffed out with
TEST_WITHOUT_THIS. Can't remember why it was ifdeffed out. Things
seem to work as previously with the code in place. Especially
spawn-test didn't work with the code ifdeffed out (Bug#61067).
* glib/grand.c (g_rand_new): Don't try to use /dev/urandom unless
on Unix.
* glib/gspawn-win32-helper.c (WinMain): Remove Sleep(10000)
accidentally left in.
Thu Sep 27 14:26:57 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/gstrfuncs.c (g_ascii_strup/down): Use gssize to
match the header. (Reported by Elliot Lee.)
Wed Sep 26 22:34:12 2001 Owen Taylor <>
Fixes for #58195, based on some ideas from Hidetosh Tajima.
* aclibcharset.m4 glib/libcharset: Add Bruno Haible's
portable-current charset detection code from libiconv.
* glib/gutf8.c (g_utf8_get_charset_internal): Rewrite
to use _g_locale_charset().
* glib/gutf8.c (_g_charset_get_aliases): Private functions
to get aliases from libcharset for a particular canonical
* glib/gconvert.c: If loading a charset fails, try
aliases to look for fallbacks.
2001-09-26 Matthias Clasen <>
* gmem.c (g_mem_is_system_malloc): Return !vtable_set.
2001-09-26 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Retract my change earlier today. Don't preset
autoconf variables in a try to match both mingw and MSVC. Instead,
he who packages a prebuilt GLib developer distribution for Win32
runs configure twice: once for mingw, once for MSVC, and then uses
diff -D on the glibconfig.h files to generate a suitably ifdeffed
glibconfig.h for distribution that suits both compilers. (Ditto
for config.h, although that file wouldn't be distributed in a
developer package, but in a source package for Win32 users who
want to build GLib but can't use configure.)
* Generated by using diff -D as described above.
* tests/ (.c.exe): Correct name of gthread (import)
Wed Sep 26 15:33:37 2001 Owen Taylor <>

Wed Sep 26 14:37:52 2001 Owen Taylor <>

Patch from Andrew Taylor to make much of the unicode
table data const so that it can be made read-only
and shared.
Wed Sep 26 12:41:05 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/gstrfuncs.c (g_strdup_vprintf): Copy if
!g_mem_is_system_malloc, not the other way around.
(Found by James Antill.)
Wed Sep 26 11:00:31 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/gstrfuncs.c (g_strnfill): Use memset; might be
faster if someone used this for a biiig string.
(Suggestion from Jakub Jelinek)
2001-09-26 Tor Lillqvist <>
* (Win32:) Move the Win32 check closer to the start,
after the BeOS checks. Preset some autoconf variables so that
configure won't find those few headers and functions that gcc
(mingw) pretends to implement (even if the actual C library
doesn't), but MSVC doesn't. This because I want the same config.h
and glibconfig.h to be usable both from gcc and MSVC (as they use
the same C library). Some other minor hackery for this purpose.
* Use versions generated by configure (and
hand-edited slightly).
2001-09-25 Darin Adler <>
* glib/gtree.h: Use gboolean for return value of GTraverseFunc.
Tue Sep 25 11:34:22 2001 Owen Taylor <>
* Version 1.3.9 (binary, interface == 0)
* glib/gstrfuncs.c (g_ascii_strdown): Change g_ascii_strup/strdown
to take a 'len' argument to match g_utf8_strup/strdown. This
hopefully will also make it more obvious that they duplicate
the string rather than acting like g_strup/strdown.
(Suggestion from Matthias Clasen, #59550)
2001-09-25 Tor Lillqvist <>
* More Win32 automake macros. For .def files:

* Rename g_mem_vtable_is_set() to g_mem_is_system_malloc().
2001-09-20 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/gutils.c (g_path_is_absolute): (Win32:) Accept also forward
slashes. (But still don't accept them in the other functions
here. This is a thorny issue. Windows in fact does treat / like \
on input (at least as local directory separators, dunno about
server/share separators). But GLib only has the one
G_DIR_SEPARATOR value, that apps should scan for, and use when
building pathnames. To properly fix this would require totally
abstracting pathnames, and don't having any path name scanning and
building in applications at all. Fat chance.)
(GLIB_LOCALE_DIR): Redefine only on "pure" Win32, not Cygwin. Use
subdirectory "share\locale", as on Unix.
* glib/gwin32.c: Don't need to define those langiage and
sublanguage constants here, current mingw (w32api) headers have
* glib/glib.def: Add a few missing entry points.
* tests/testglib.c (main): Use same name for DLL as libtool does.

After being away for about five months, I'm back working on

will change to not including version numbers in the import library

possibly even also the micro version number.) That would be more
Unix-like. Also, will have to check out newest mingw tool versions
to see if the build-dll script now can be retired.

* glib/gmain.[ch]: (Mostly patch from Sebastian Wilhemi)
Make some changes to the way that GMainContext works:
- a GMainContext is no longer associated with a single
thread, but any thread can acquire ownership
of thread and iterate.
- There is a facility g_main_context_wait() for
non-owner-threads to wait either for ownership
or for a condition to be broadcast.
- For efficiency, GMainLoop just piggybacks of
of the loops mutex / condition instead of
having a separate mutex/condition for each
* glib/gthread.[ch]: Remove hacks to store the thread's
GMainContext in the GThread structures, since we
no longer have the GMainContext <=> GThread correspondence.
* glib/gmain.[ch]: Make g_main_context_wakeup() public

with the public API.

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 <>

* 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 <>

* docs/reference/glib/tmpl/hash_tables.sgml: added new functions
g_hash_table_new_full, g_hash_table_replace, g_hash_table_steal and

* gstrfuncs.c, gstrfuncs.h: Add g_stpcpy () for platform that
don't have stpcpy ().
* gstrfuncs.c (g_strjoin, g_strjoinv, 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 <>

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 <>

* 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.

* 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

* 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.
2001-01-05 Tor Lillqvist <>
* testglib.c (main): Add test for g_path_skip_root().
* gfileutils.c (g_file_open_tmp): (Win32:) Look also for (illegal)
forward slashes in the template.
* gutils.c (g_path_skip_root): On Win32, skip the \\server\share

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.

as ENABLE_GC_FRIENDLY should be known.

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.)

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
to IO Channels for pipes with "wakeup" messages.
* glib.def: Some new functions.
* tests/gio-test.c: New file, to test GIOChannel and main loop.

(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
know the writer has written/will write).
