Revision history for Data-Printer
0.30 2012-02-13
CHANGES THAT BREAK BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY:
- 'escape_chars' was renamed 'print_escapes' to
avoid ambiguity. The old name will work until
v0.32, but will trigger a warning so you can
update your code. Sorry for the inconvenience,
the previous name was hard to figure out because
'escape' could be interpreted as a noun or as
an adjective (perigrin++ for suggesting the new
name).
NEW FEATURES:
- in hashes, surround key names with quotes if they
contain spaces (feature request by Maxim Vuets)
- escape_chars also works for hash keys now.
- new 'quote_keys' property to add quotes in hash
keys. Defaults to 'auto' which means it will
quote keys containing spaces (and empty keys)
BUG FIXES:
- fixed temporary file handling during tests. Thanks
Andy Bach for reporting and providing a patch.
OTHER:
- added documentation for the new 'rc_file' feature
introduced in the previous version.
0.29 2012-01-25
NEW FEATURES:
- custom rc file names via the new 'rc_file' property
(many thanks to Maxim Vuets for the idea and the
original implementation)
BUG FIXES:
- fixed unescaped null character during colored output
(reported by bowtie++)
0.28 2012-01-23
NEW FEATURES:
- new 'escape_chars' property to show '\t', '\n'
escaped (default is 1, meaning escape, which
will render the actual character instead). Note that
the '\0' special character is never escaped.
- new 'escaped' colour, defaults to bright red.
OTHER:
- fixed Changes file for compliance against latest
CPAN::Changes specification
0.27 2012-01-22
BUG FIXES:
- properly escape nulls in strings (oylenshpeegul)
NEW FEATURES:
- control the output target with the 'output' property.
It can be set to 'stdout', 'stderr', a file name,
a file handle or even a scalar reference! Default, as
usual, is 'stderr'
OTHER:
- added tests for auto-coloring (DOY)
- updated link to Any::Renderer::Data::Printer (Allan Whiteford)
0.26 2011-11-23
BUG FIXES:
- colored => 'auto' properly detects terminals again
0.25 2011-11-20
BUG FIXES:
- Increased version requirement for Test::Pod to 1.41 (Fitz Elliott)
- Updated tests to handle newer Class::MOP installations (J Mash)
OTHER:
- POD tests enabled only for developers
- Updated Class::MOP version requirement to 0.81 since
ActiveState was complaining about ancient versions.
0.24 2011-10-23
NEW FEATURES:
- link to the external URI filter (by SYP)
- display object's reference type (Denis Howe)
OTHER:
- only load Class::MOP when inspecting objects.
0.23 2011-08-30
NEW FEATURES:
- control the return value with the 'return_value'
property. This can be set to 'void', 'dump', and
'pass' (for pass-through). Default is 'dump',
which behaves exactly like previous versions. Note
that, as usual, the 'dump' mode will only print
the dump if called in void context. Otherwise, it
will only return it. (MST, GARU)
OTHER:
- more extra tips (HANEKOMU, RANDIR, MST)
- updated documentation
0.22 2011-07-19
NEW FEATURES:
- display taint information via the 'show_tainted'
display customization (default true)
- control weak information display via 'show_weak'
customization (default true)
OTHER:
- major documentation overhaul and update
- more extra tips (MST, HANEKOMU)
0.21 2011-07-01
BUG FIXES:
- removed legacy dependency on Object::ID
- increased Term::ANSIColor version (David Raab)
- switched to EU:MM to make people happy :)
(seriously though, M:I was being too clever
while resolving dependencies)
OTHER:
- adding bugtracker meta information
0.20 2011-06-23
CHANGES THAT BREAK BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY:
- respect ANSI_COLORS_DISABLED if colored => 'auto',
but force color codes if colored => 1.
- colored => 'auto' prints colored output only
in void mode, not when returning a string. In other
words, doing p($var) will show colors, but
my $out = p($var) will not (unless you force it
via colored => 1). This behavior differs from
previous versions, but is more consistent and
we consider the previous way to have been a bug.
Many thanks to SZABGAB, CSJEWELL and specially RANDIR
for detecting, analyzing and helping to come up with
a solution, initially addressed as a Microsoft Windows
issue (RT#68630).
OTHER:
- reduced some dependencies to make installation even easier.
0.19 2011-06-08
NEW FEATURES:
- toggle 'parents' class display, activated by default (RANDIR)
- toggle 'show_methods' class display, activated by default (RANDIR, GARU)
- toggle 'linear_isa' class display, activated by default
BUG FIXES:
- specific class filters now fallback to generic -class
filters when used (RANDIR)
- show flags from handles even when not all flags are
implemented on the target system (DOHERTY, GARU)
0.18 2011-06-07
NEW FEATURES:
- toggle timezone display on DateTime filters (Elliot Shank)
- showing weak references (RANDIR)
- more concise output for empty structures (RANDIR)
OTHER:
- extra tip on unified dumping interfaces (cat|grep)
- extra tip on using Data::Printer with Devel::REPL
0.17 2011-06-06
NEW FEATURES:
- filter fallback also for Perl types (RANDIR, GARU)
- no need to pass arrayref in -external filters
if you only have one.
- new "use_prototypes" option, defaults to 1. Set to 0
to stop using prototypes in p(), which will let you
do p( { foo => "bar" } ); but you'll have to pass
the data to be printed as a reference.
BUG FIXES:
- corrected filter order (should be LIFO, not FIFO)
- fixed edge-case behavior of p() within standalone filters
- make sure filter output is defined, not just true (RANDIR)
- fixed filter tests for Date::Calc & Date::Pcalc (SUGYAN, GARU)
OTHER:
- more tests
- big internal refactoring
- extra tips on circumveinting prototypes (DAMS, GARU)
- extra tips on loading p() across all loaded modules (Árpád Szász)
0.16 2011-05-31
BUG FIXES:
- patch to make it work on 5.8.8 again (RANDIR)
0.15 2011-05-30
OTHERS:
- updating filters docs
- adding default color for DateTime filter
0.14 2011-05-30
NEW FEATURES:
- allowing 'colored' display customization to control colored
output. Default is 'auto', showing colors only when
output is not being piped. You may also set this to 0 to
disable colors completely, or 1 to enable output coloring
all the time (even when piped).
- new 'caller_info' display customization.
- default 'class_method' is now set to '_data_printer', so your
modules and apps can be aware of Data::Printer automatically.
BUG FIXES:
- Skipping calls to fcntl() in systems that don't support it.
0.13 2011-05-24
CHANGES THAT ***BREAK*** BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY:
- 'external' is now called '-external' to avoid name clash
with a potential "external.pm" class;
- filters for the same type/class are now stacked and called
in order. The first one that returns a defined value (string)
is used, otherwise it will forward the call to the next filter.
In earlier versions, the last declared filter would be the one
used. Note that this feature is only available for stand-alone
filters, since inline filters are actually a hash.
NEW FEATURES:
- use a specific dump method via the 'class_method' display
customization (default undef)
- display tie information via the 'show_tied' display
customization (default true)
- display extra information (mode, flags, layers) on I/O handles
- new '-class' type (note the dash) called when we find a
non-native type (i.e. an object). If you return anything at
all - even an empty string - the filter will succeed. Otherwise
it will forward the call to the next '-class' filter, in order.
- new DDP package alias
OTHERS:
- improved test suite
- improved documentation
0.12 2011-05-03
BUG FIXES:
- fixed failing filter test due to timezone/epoch issues
0.11 2011-05-03
NEW FEATURES:

- allowing 'sort_methods' class display customization (default true)
- now you can add options to Data::Printer as a plain hash, not
just as a hash ref (feature request by edenc)
NEW ***EXPERIMENTAL*** FEATURES:
- Data::Printer::Filter, enabling separate filter classes
- filter for modules handling date and time (DateTime & friends)
- filter for database modules (DBI only for now)
OTHERS:

NEW FEATURES:
- allowing toggle for array indices
- allowing 'multiline' display customization
- allowing 'deparse' display customization
- allowing 'max_depth' display customization

improved readability.

- Making tests stricter, since they were failing on Win32
0.06 2011-03-31
BUG FIXES:

argument to p() must be passed as a *reference*. This
is now enforced to avoid users shooting themselves in the foot.
- more tests added

NEW FEATURES:
- local configuration file support ($HOME/.dataprinter)
- you can now alias p() to whatever name you like

BUG FIXES:
- reseting colors before starting
0.02 2011-02-13
