Previous revision history for Net::SFTP
0.09 2005.01.16
- New co-maintainer, David Robins (DBROBINS).
- Adds a 'warn' argument to the constructor to allow supression or
redirection of warnings.
- Allows the 'ssh_args' constructor argument to be either a hash ref or an
array ref.
- Adds a 'status' method which returns the last SSH2_FX_* status value, or
(status value, text) in list context (only useful after last failure).
- Adds brief summary comments to some methods.
- Returns failure if the remote open fails for 'get' (previous code ignored
it); also moves the remote open before the local open so that we don't
create empty local files if the remote file can't be opened.
- Changes 'ls' to return an array reference in scalar context.
- Documents: the fact that we die on protocol/local errors; the new option
and method; changes to 'get'/'put' (formerly 'put' didn't return anything
useful, and 'get's actual return values are the same, just better
- Adds a comprehensive remote test, but to use it one has to manually go in
and configure a server a certain way, so it defaults to skipping
everything; I'm including it as a base since there are currently no remote
tests at all.
0.08 2003.12.12
- Net::SFTP::Buffer was passing an invalid option when loading
- Add SUPPORT section to the docs.
0.07 2003.11.14
- Require Net::SSH::Perl 1.24, which also includes circular
reference fixes.
0.06 2003.11.14
- New maintainer, Dave Rolsky.
- Fixed a circular reference which caused connections to be held
open indefinitely in a persistent environment like mod_perl.
This uses weak references, so Perl 5.6.0+ is now required. This
work was funded by Kineticode, Inc.
- Added a LICENSE file.
0.05 2001.05.24
- Added help ('h' or '?') command to psftp. Moved all shell
functionality into Net::SFTP::Shell.
- Net::SFTP::Util needed to 'use Exporter'.
0.04 2001.05.16
- Fixed bug in put method when running fsetstat command; it
was trying to set the UID/GID on the remote file, which
was giving a permission denied message. Should not try to
set UID/GID, so had to adjust flags.
- Added eg/psftp, a working SFTP shell.
- Moved READ and WRITE commands into their own methods
(do_read and do_write, respectively).
- Changed semantics of get method. Returning the contents of
the remote file is no longer connected to whether a local
file is passed as an argument; it is instead based on the
calling context of 'get'. Updated docs to reflect this.
0.03 2001.05.15
- Documentation for all extra classes: Attributes, Buffer,
Constants, and Util.
- Documentation for command methods in Net::SFTP.
- Added binmode when reading/writing from local files.
- Added methods for all remaining commands in SFTP protocol
version 3 (eg. remove, rmdir, mkdir, realpath, etc.).
- Added callbacks to get and put, eg. for status messages,
- Fixed typo in Net::SFTP::Buffer::get_int64 that was breaking
reading 64-bit ints.
0.02 2001.05.14
- Fixed bug with SSH2 server not sending one message per
packet, ie. multiple packets have to be retrieved to make
up one SFTP message. This would show up as a "Message length
too long" error. Thanks to Matt Good for the spot.
- Fixed bug with OpenSSH and SSH2 SFTP servers where after
a certain amount of bytes the connection would hang. This
was a bug in Net::SSH::Perl (channel window sizes) that is
fixed in version 1.13.
