2002-07-16 Jay Rogers <email@example.com> * Version 3.03 released. * Telnet.pm (getlines): Changed behavior so it works like IO::Handle::getlines(). Instead of returning just the lines currently available for reading, it now returns all lines until end-of-file. To get the old behavior, use "All => ''" named parameter. * Telnet.pm (put): New method put() is like print(), except that it doesn't write the trailing output_record_separator ("\n"). It also takes named parameters. * Telnet.pm (last_prompt): New method last_prompt() provides the last prompt matched by cmd() or login(). * Telnet.pm (rs): New method rs() is synonymous with input_record_separator(). * Telnet.pm (ors): New method ors() is synonymous with output_record_separator. * Telnet.pm (ofs): New method ofs() is synonymous with output_field_separator(). * Telnet.pm (input_log, output_log, option_log): Fixed so they always return the filehandle of the logfile or "" if logging turned-off. * Telnet.pm (dump_log, input_log, option_log, output_log): Fixed so they work with an unblessed or tied filehandle. * Telnet.pm (cmd_remove_mode, errmode, input_record_separator) (max_buffer_length, option_callback, port, prompt, timeout): These attribute methods now ignore an invalid argument and print a warning to stderr. This also applies to a named parameter used to override one of these attributes. * Telnet.pm (cmd): Added named parameters to override Errmode, and Input_record_separator. * Telnet.pm (get, waitfor): Added named parameters to override Binmode, Errmode, and Telnetmode. * Telnet.pm (getline, getlines): Added named parameters to override Binmode, Errmode, Input_record_separator, and Telnetmode. * Telnet.pm (login, open): Added named parameter to override Errmode. * Telnet.pm (login): Added two 0.01 second delays to workaround bug in Linux login program. * Telnet.pm (break): Fixed to properly send TELNET break command. * Telnet.pm (open): Fixed to properly handle an absolute timeout value. * Telnet.pm: Squelched the warning "isn't numeric" caused by deficiency in ActiveState perl and MS-Windows. * t/select.t: Fixed test #3 so it passes when running on Linux 2.4 or greater. 2000-05-27 Jay Rogers <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Version 3.02 released. * Telnet.pm: Squelched the warning "Ambiguous call resolved as CORE::open()" introduced by perl5.005 * Telnet.pm: Fixed incorrect handling of CR LF when chars are sent in separate blocks. * Telnet.pm: Modified log routines to accept a tied filehandle. * Telnet.pm (get): Fixed to correctly set timed_out() to indicate no time-out error when data is not immediately available but subsequently arrives and is read before the time-out interval expires. * Telnet.pm (get): Fixed timeout error when timeout=0, and no data read, but there's still data in the buffer yet to be returned. * Telnet.pm (get): Errmode action now happens when timeout=0 and time-out occurs. 1997-12-27 Jay Rogers <email@example.com> * Version 3.01 released. * Telnet.pm (binmode): calling binmode() without an argument no longer sets binmode to 1, but rather just returns the current value for binmode. * Telnet.pm (telnetmode): calling telnetmode() without an argument no longer sets telnetmode to 1, but rather just returns the current value for telnetmode. * Telnet.pm (cmd): Removes the first line of output when the remote side told us it would echo or the user requests its removal explicitly with cmd_remove_mode() * Telnet.pm (cmd_remove_mode): New method that contains the mode for how to deal with an echoed back command in the output returned by cmd(). Default is set to "auto", which means cmd() removes the first line of output when the remote side told us it would echo. * Telnet.pm (new): By default, an offer to echo made by the remote side of a TELNET connection is always accepted. * Telnet.pm (new): Fixed default prompt to work with prompts containing $ * Telnet.pm (fhopen): Changed to work with any open filehandle including uni-directional pipes like STDIN. * Telnet.pm (host): When passed a null string or undef for a hostname it no longer changes it to "localhost". * Telnet.pm (waitfor): Now performs error mode action when eof is encountered before the pattern match. * Telnet.pm (waitfor): Changed text of error messages when timing-out. * Telnet.pm (login): Changed text of error messages when timing-out. * Telnet.pm: Fixed non-portable use of \r\n to the more portable \015\012. * Telnet.pm (break): Fixed to no longer send the output_record_separator. * Telnet.pm: Stopped erroneously converting input character sequences which look like TELNET escaped carriage-returns (\015\000), when not in telnetmode. * Telnet.pm (buffer): New method that returns scalar reference to object's input buffer. * Telnet.pm (buffer_empty): New method that discards all data in object's input buffer. * Telnet.pm (option_accept): New method used to indicate our willingness to accept a telnet option offered by the remote side. * Telnet.pm (option_callback): New method used to receive notification of telnet option negotiation. * Telnet.pm (option_log): New method that is used to log option negotiation. * Telnet.pm (option_state): New method that returns the current state of a telnet option.
