Changelog for libmawk
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

libmawk 1.0.2 (released: 2019-06-22, r1318)
	[core] -Fix: C function calls with uninitialized variables: not sure if array or not, delay resolving it until all the script is parsed so we see if the symbol is an array

	[math] -Fix: protect all basic math functions from nan input in emulated nan setup
	[math] -Fix: for systems with unsafe NaN: manual atan2 arg validation
	[math] -Fix: print and printf treats nan specially to make sure "nan" is printed on all platforms (including emulated NaN)

	[build] -Add: optional support for soname
	[build] -Change: use $(MAKE) instead of make in central Makefiles for parallel build
	[build] -Add: detect -rdynamic
	[core] -Change: extend mpow2 for covering new celltypes
	[core] -Cleanup: rename _STOP and _RANGE to _RANGE_STOP and _RANGE_CHK to make their purpose more clear
	[core] -Fix: return read error in getline doesn't fall in infinite loop in fill buff anymore
	[core] -Add: MAWK_MEM_PEDANTIC compile time option; when set, try to free all allocation instead of letting zmalloc catch them all

	[core] -Fix: make sure code blocks are free'd only once, but are really free'd

	[core] -Fix: let mawk_delete() free arrays, don't manually do that on argv
	[core] -Change: let mawk_delete() free user function
	[core] -Change: fin is under files - higher level code should do all access through the file infra
	[core] -Fix: FIN is only about buffering, no open/close should go through that API
	[core] -Fix: reference count vf structs since one vf might be open multiple times from FILE_NODEs (for input and output) and should be destroyed only once
	[core] -Fix: closing all files, not only output files, is not a pedantic-mem feature - not doig it could lead to leaking fds and other resources even if zmalloc pools are freed centrally

	[core] -Fix: memory leak: free data of c function calls compiled into the code at uninit

	[example_apps] -Fix: hash_re won't init std pipes twice
	[example_apps] -Fix: custom vio test sets up pipes correctly and closes the hass from the app's end of the deal at the end
	[example_apps] -Add: better explanation of the c_func_call example and hook it in the all-test-chain
	[libmawk] -Fix: C function call from execute with new function call conventions
	[libmawk] -Fix: call_functionp increases sp before push else the stack pointer points to the wrong place
	[libmawk] -Fix: restore sp on function call failure
	[libmawk] -Fix: before closing stdio on awk side, close stdin on app side to make sure both ends can be closed

	[libmawk] -Add: function call API with cell argc/argv
	[parser] -Fix: really reset the parser stack when it gets freed - used to segfault for two includes on the topmost level
	[parser] -Fix: allow excess newlines in the main context - this fixes a corner case around multiple includes
	[regression] -Add: test for bifunct call()
	[regression] -Add: test for acall() (dynamic call with array as argument)

	[vm] -Add: new convention in bi_funct calling: return stack may be a directive for executing an user functioin (for bi_call and bi_acall)

	[core] -Fix: rewritten mawk_FINgets - cleaner code that is non-blocking-safe

	[vio] -Clenaup: cleaner ways recognizing "/dev/std*"
	[vio] -Add: support for /dev/fd/xxx (fdopen() wrapper)
	[vio] -Add: an extra layer to dispatch vio calls - multiple vio implementations can coexist
	[vio] -Add: virtualize vio init (non-per-file vio hooks); use MAWK->vio_init instead of hardwired vio_orig (so that vio_orig can be omitted)

libmawk 0.10.0 (released: 2014-06-26, r937)
	Major changes in core, mostly for virtual arrays:
		[array] -Add: introduce new VM instructions for all array-element-write operations and split the lvalue rule of the grammar; besides being new instructions, they do the same in the execution switch as before
		[array] -Add: virtualize array operations
		[array] -Add: virtual, per instance ENVIRON[] that copies environ[] upon the first access and affects exec()
		[array] -Del: ST_ENV: ENVIRON[] is not a global special case anymore, just a builtin array with a different implementation
		[core] -Fix: replace "short int type" and a bunch of C_ macros for cell type with a proper enum
		[core] -Add: macro option for cell operators for speed
		[core] -Fix: set ERRNO in fin after a read error
		[core] -Cleanup: mawk_ prefix zmalloc, zfree, ZMALLOC, ZFREE and a lot of other constants and macros
		[init] -Add: a flag for indicating that it is ok for initialize_argv() to end up without a script
		[dump] -Fix: print the code of illegal instructions
		[dump] -Add: da_text: use blank lines to separate blocks: functions, BEGIN, MAIN, END
		[dump] -Change: da_text: after user functions, dump code in BEGIN-MAIN-END order - it is more intuitive this way
		[dump] -Add: text dump includes a summary of the global symbol table
		[dump] -Change: introduce -W dumpsym for dumping symbols independently of dumping code
		[da_bin] -Fix: properly save/load C_SNULL and C_SPACE (special split argument types) to/from binary dump
	API CHANGES affecting libmawk:
		[core] -Clenaup: rename STRING to mawk_string_t
		[core] -Clenaup: rename CELL to libmawk_cell_t
		[core] -Change: use an union instead of dval in CELL, to make room for other data types
		[core] -Add: new cell type C_ARR_REF (should be execute()-internal); an array reference by name and index (instead of pointer to a cell)
		[API] -move parsing the script from init stage1 to stage2 to give the host app a chance to inject things into the context before any code is parsed
		[API] -Change: get_var should return a read-only CELL - direct modification of the cell is a bad idea due to possible side effects required at write
		[API] -Fix: libmawk_print_cell shall be called with the context (mawk_state_t) as any other call in the API
		[API] -Change: new, easier-to-use c-func calling conventions and helpers
		[array] -Cleanup: rename ARRAY to mawk_array_t
	New libmawk API features:
		[API] -Add: helper functions to return the numeric value of a cell
		[API] -Add: an easy way to set a cell to empty
		[API] -Add: high level array set_at calls and scalar set calls

libmawk 0.9.7 (released: 2014-05-17, r732)
	Major code structure changes:
		[vio] -Split: file/pipe open/close operations to virtual IO (vio)
		[linux] -Add: initial linux kernel module effort (defunct yet)
		[array] -Add: virtualized array access (except for write) with callback functions
		[libmawk] -Split: lmawk-comp and lmawk-exec frames - most code is in common yet
		[libmawk] -Add: MAWK_NO_FORK for configuring against system() and fork()
	Code cleanup:
		[da_bin] -Cleanup: compiler warnings around da_bin (binary script save/load)
		[da_bin] -Split: da_bin and da_bin_helper: precompiled binary script load doesn't directly call read() but an user provided callback for virtualization
		[da_bin] -Fix: array creation on binary load
		[da_bin] -Fix: when resetting code base size for loading binary, use zmalloc for proper allocation size
		[build] -Fix: Makefile cleanup for portability
		[libmawk] -Fix: prefix NF, RS and other similar macro names with MAWK_ - they collide in the Linux kernel
		[test_3rd] -Add: scripts for running optional 3rd party tests from vendor/ (for the gawk set, without much configuration or filtering)
		[regex] -Change: error handling without setjmp/longjmp (return values and a bunch of checks)
		[regex] -Fix: regex lib uses zmalloc memory allocation to ensure all memory is free'd after a context is destroyed
		[regex] -Add: tiny test program to trigger almost all possible error conditions in the regex lib
		[regex] -Fix: move runtime states of the regex lib in the mawk struct to make it reentrant
		[regex] -Fix: bi_vars are part of the mawk struct because parallel scripts may have different values for the same variables or even modify them from script
	More portable doubles (and numeric):
		[numeric] -Add: use porty's math_wrap for log() to get rid of undeterministic fpe
		[numeric] -Add: use PM math protection copied from libporty
		[numeric] -Add: new builtin function isnan()
		[numeric] -Fix: virtualize strtod int strtonum: on a real int-only platform (e.g. Linux kernel) there won't be strtod at all
	Fixes of the core functionality:
		[libmawk] -Fix: make sure runtime error exit code takes over in final_error_code
		[bi_func] -Fix: substr for start indices less than 1 behave similar to how substr() handles length overruns (silently truncate) - gawk has the same behavior
		[bi_func] -Fix: gsub() patch for the ^ bug
		[io] -Fix: redirection conditions messed up in r349
		[libmawk] -Fix: disable -v only when MAWK_NO_EXEC is set, and don't even consider MAWK_NO_COMP
		[libmawk] -Fix: fin_exec should respect a MAWK exit request and not retry reading
		[libmawk] -Fix: if FIN can not be open (invalid file name, nonexisting file), don't segfault but return error
