	* support/devel/sak/doc/toc.txt: generates a keyword index
	  ('kwic.txt'), and a table of contents ('idx.txt'). The first

	  errors and of the various failure states to ensure that they are

	* (test): Changed to use an explicit -s TCLSH_PROG to
	  avoid use of the Tcllib registry.

	* support/devel/sak/test/run.tcl: Flush all writes to logfiles, to
	  ensure that they are uptodate in case an abort is needed. Added
	  output of totals after the test run, and made exit status
	  dependent on failures (1 = Ok, 0 = Had problems).

2006-09-27  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* support/devel/all.tcl: Ensure that root is absolute across all
	  versions of Tcl. Added code to recreate the auto_path in the
	  slave interps and processes after it was smashed by older
	  revisions of tcltest during their load.

2006-09-20  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* support/releases/history/README-1.9.txt: New file. Readme file
	  for the upcoming release, providing an overview of the changes.

	* support/devel/sak/test/run.tcl: Modified to not use echo and cat
	* support/devel/sak/test/help.txt: when starting a testsuite on
	  windows. Eliminated the use of valgrind for that platform as
	  well. Updated the documentation regarding the latter.

2006-09-19  Andreas Kupries <>

	* support/devel/sak/test/run.tcl: Extended testsuite logging.
	* support/devel/sak/test/help.txt: Standard user feedback and

	  of files. All required information in one run, instead of two.

2006-09-18  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* installer.tcl: Accepted patch by Michael Schlenker
	  <> for [Tcllib SF Bug 1559489] to
	  divert error messages to a dialog box instead of stderr where
	  possible, to avoid them being silently swallowed by windows.

	* support/devel/sak/test/run.tcl: Reworked output generated
	* support/devel/all.tcl: by testsuites, added processing of
	  the modified output for progress reporting, condensed reporting,
	  and in preparation of placing results into a database.

	* support/devel/sak/test/shell.tcl: Fixed typo in name of method
	  to call to remove shells from the database.

	* support/devel/sak/test/help.txt: Added reference to the file
	  used to store the list of registered shells.

	* support/devel/all.tcl: Changed to terminate with 'exit' instead
	  of 'return', to allow the testsuites to be driven by a 'wish'
	  without having to deal with its event loop.

	* support/devel/sak/test/cmd.tcl: Replaced the existing
	* support/devel/sak/test/help.txt: implementation of 'test' with a
	  dispatcher to an extensible set of packages. See below.

	* support/devel/sak/test/pkgIndex.tcl: New implementation of the
	* support/devel/sak/test/run.tcl: 'test' command and its sub-
	* support/devel/sak/test/shell.tcl: commands. The 'registry', see
	* support/devel/sak/test/shells.tcl: below, is used to store the
	* support/devel/sak/test/test.tcl: registered shells.

	* support/devel/sak/util/pkgIndex.tcl: Registered package.
	* support/devel/sak/util/registry.tcl: New file, wrapper around
	  the pregistry, customized to SAK.

	* support/devel/sak/registry/pkgIndex.tcl: Package for a small tree-
	* support/devel/sak/registry/ based database similar to
	* support/devel/sak/registry/registry.tcl: the windows registry. For
	* support/devel/sak/registry/registry.test: now just an internal
	  package to support 'sak', in the future it may move and become an
	  official package.

	  code more robust for packages importing other packages.

	* sak.tcl: Replaced all internal 'package require' statements with
	  calls to an internal helper which always loads from the local
	  directory tree, i.e. preventing use of an external installation
	  (which may be incompatible). ... Removed triplicate definition
	  of command 'write_out'. ... Extended help message a
	  bit. ... Added code to help internal debugging through logging.

	* Released and tagged Tcllib 1.6 ========================

2004-02-14  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* README-1.5.txt -> README-1.6.txt
	* INSTALL.txt
	* tcllib_version.tcl

	  We have too many places which use the Tcllib CVS head under the
	  designation Tcllib 1.5. Because of that the next officially
	  released version is called Tcllib 1.6, skipping the number
	  1.5. This should differentiate cleanly between the various
	  instances of Tcllib/CVS floating around and this release, and
	  avoid any confusion about what is which.

2004-02-13  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* sak.tcl (release): Made functional, added the code which extends
	  all the ChangeLogs with the release notice.
	  (gd-assemble): Extended to exclude SCCS and BitKeeper files from
	  the distribution.
	  (gd-gen-packages): Fixed problem with missing global variable.

	* all.tcl: 'getErrorMessage' and 'tooManyMessage' renamed to
	  'wrongNumArgs' anfd 'tooManyArg'. Also placed the common
	  constraints (checking Tcl version: 8.3 only, 8.3+, 8.4+) in
	  here, and removed their declaration from all test files using

	* README-1.5.txt: Updated logger version info to 0.3.

2004-01-24  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* sak.tcl: Added a very primitive approval mechanism to suppress
	  output from the package comparison in 'status'. Allows to work
	  through a set of problems with repeated comparison, approving
	  packages when done.

	* sak.tcl: Extended functionality for release engineering. Better
	  comparison of current state against last release. Alerts for
	  mismatches in version numbers of packages versus changes made to

	* PACKAGES: New file. Always carries the package information from
	  the last release. Basis for the release status work above.

2003-12-01  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* installed_modules.tcl: Added 'struct1', the v1.x version of the
	  struct module. Kept for backward compatibility.

2003-10-21  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* sak.tcl: Added -nonewline to a number of puts statements to work
	  around a problem with Tcl 8.4 where additional ^M characters
	  appear for Mac OS X. [Bug 784523].

	* README: Updated to describe the new way of adding modules to
	  tcllib. [Bug 784515].

	* INSTALL.txt: Updated references to tcllib 1.4 to 1.5.
	  [Bug 784516, incomplete].

	* installed_modules.tcl: Changed doc action for snit from _null to
	  _man (We have doctools manpages for snit for a while now).

	* all.tcl: Added code to try to load 'Tk'. This allows the
	  execution of 'tk' constrained tests, if Tk is present (for
	  example when this code is run run by 'wish'). An example of a
	  module having such tests is 'snit'.

2003-07-26  Pat Thoyts  <>

	* modules/md5crypt: New module: MD5-crypt implementation
	* installed_modules.tcl: Added new module.
	* sak.tcl: Added reference for critcl impl of md5crypt.

2003-07-24  Pat Thoyts  <>

	* sak.tcl: Added a command for generating a YAML description

	* sak.tcl: Altered the finding of critcl under Windows.

2003-07-15  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* modules/snit: New module, William Duquette's oo package 'snit'

2003-07-04  Miguel Sofer <>

	* modules/
	* modules/ftpd.tcl (::ftpd::server): the variable ::ftpd::port is
	now updated to reflect the port were the server was opened. This
	is only relevant when a server was requested at port 0 - ie, at a
	port determined by the OS.	

2003-05-26  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* sak.tcl: Updated rpm spec generator using the latest .spec by
	  Jean-Luc as template. The spec now determiens the list of files
	  on its own. Don't have to generate them.

2003-05-23  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* sak.tcl (gd-gen-rpmspec): Added functions to generate a .spec
	  file (RPM build specification). Added method 'rpmspec' to
	  generate tcllib.spec.

2003-05-20  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* installed_modules.tcl: Added 'multiplexer' to the list of
	  installed modules. Tested and validqated module. Documentation
	  looks ok for me.

2003-05-13  Pat Thoyts  <>

	* sak.tcl: added a critcl command to sak to build any critcl
	tcllib submodules into a tcllibc library (or separate libraries).

	* sak.tcl (modules_mod): Fixed incorrect check. Caused first
	  module to be reported as bogus although it isn't.

2003-05-08  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* installer.tcl: Fixed typo in the code loading the new
	  'install_action.tcl', had used '...._actions'; note the trailing
	  's'. Thanks to Larry <> for
	  reporting this.

2003-05-07  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* tcllib_version.tcl: Updated to to distinguish the CVS
	  from the official release.

	* install_action.tcl:
	* installer.tcl:
	* sak.tcl: Lots of changes to make a number of command
	  module-ware. In the sense that they now work for individual
	  modules and not only for all in one go. The most important is
	  'validate'. IOW, it is now possible to validate a single module,
	  making this feature more convenient for a developer, as there is
	  less noise in the output. This required more sharing of code
	  with the installer.

2003-04-24  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* sak.tcl: New command 'provided' to list packages provided by tcl
	  code. Extended the 'validate' command to compare the lists of
	  provided and indexed packages. Note: A number of packages use
	  variable in provide commands. These will show up as
	  differences. They need higher attention to ensure version

	  Modified some modules (calendar, exif, control, math) to reduce
	  the number of reported false positives.

	* sak.tcl: Added 'vcompare' to compare the current list of
	  packages against a list in a file. Marks new and unchanged

	                         information against the list of modules
	                         under development and print out all the

	                         installed, or modules installed, but not
	                         existing. This is under 'validate'.

	* sak.tcl: Restricted the list of modules to subdirectories of
	  'modules' which contain a package index (pkgIndex.tcl).

	  Added the subcommand 'lmodules' listing all modules one per
	  line.  The existing subcommand 'modules' in contrast prints
	  everything on a single line.

	  Added the subcommand 'packages' listing the packages in tcllib

	main package list as it requires CBC/CFB/OFB modes for real use.

2003-01-18  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* More doctools changes: Command [strong] is deprecated now. Added

2002-08-19  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* nntp: Updated documentation, see Tcllib SF #597102.

	* (install-doc): Fixed problem noted by Elchonon
	  Edelson. Code to inline man.macros appended to existing
	  files. Multiple execution of 'make install-doc' thus extended
	  the manpages of tcllib with multiples of their original
	  content. Not anymore.

2002-08-16  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* exif: Applied patch #582828. Partially applied #530970.

2002-08-15  Andreas Kupries  <>

	* (DOC_EXP): Use the tclsh found during configuration
	  to run mpexpand. This ensures that mpexpand does not pick
	  something from the path on its own, possibly something too old
	  to understand TCLLIBPATH. Problem noted by Elchonon Edelson

	* mime: Accepted SF Tcllib FR #595240. This entails the donation
	  of the personal mail filter mbot, as written and used by
	  Marshall T. Rose, as an example of the usage of the mime and
	  smtp packages.

	* mime (smtp): Followup to patch SF #557520/2 (See 2002-07-25).

2002-08-09  Andreas Kupries  <>
	* (install-doc): Changed $$(basename) to
	  `basename`. Portability problem. Works for Linux for example,
	  but not everywhere else. See 2002-08-06 for the change which
	  introduced this.

	* (MODULES):  Added module 'report'.

	* all.tcl: Added code to propagate "::tcltest::testDirectory" into

	* (install-libraries):  [Bug #404917]
	  Added 'smtp' explictly to the list of modules for the full
	  package index. It is part of the 'mime' directory and thus not
	  automatically found / part of the list.

2001-03-26  Andreas Kupries <>

	* Added module 'htmlparse'.

2001-03-21  Andreas Kupries <>

	* Added module 'log'.

2001-03-20  Andreas Kupries <>

	* all.tcl: [Bug #410100, Patch #410105]
	  Squashed a subtle bug with package management for the
	  tests. Changes: all.tcl now adds the module path to the
	  auto_path (the tested modules did it themselves before) and also
	  moved the setting of the auto_path in the slave before the first
	  'package require'. Why ? Assume the old code, an installed
	  fileutil 1.0 and a new fileutil 1.1 under development. The
	  initialization of the tests scans the package directories and
	  finds fileutil 1.0. The module then adds itself to the auto_path
	  and then requires fileutil (without version). Now fileutil 1.0
	  is found by the pkg management, it is acceptable according to
	  the rules of require and thus used. The new version is not
	  considered at all, as changing the auto_path does *not* enforce
	  a rescan of package directories. It is possible to solve the
	  problem by having the modules require themselves and request a
	  specific version (1.1 in this case). But this would mean that in
	  each module we have (at least) one more file containing the
	  version number (all test files!) and we have to maintain this
	  for every module. The change here however solves the problem
	  without touching the modules at all.

	* mkInstallScripts.tcl: Fixed a bug in the UNIX shell script where
	it was checking if TCLINSTALL was non-null, but it was using ==,
	which isn't legal in /bin/sh.  I found this out the hard way while
	trying to install tcllib0.4 in the default location

	* Added $(srcdir)/ prefix to mkIndex.tcl call in the

	* Removed mkIndex.tcl from AC_OUTPUT call.

	* mkInstallScripts.tcl: First cut at script for autogenerating
	simple INSTALL.BAT and files for tcllib distributions.

	* mkIndex.tcl: 
	* Replace with mkIndex.tcl, which
	now takes more args to specify values.

	* Added ncgi module, commented out until tests are done.

2000-03-09  Eric Melski	 <>

	* Updated test target to call out to all.tcl.

	* all.tcl: First checkin of all.tcl, the magic that hides behind
	"make test".

2000-03-08  Eric Melski	 <>

	* Commented out cgi module until it's ready for use.
	Added checks for bogus module names in install-libraries, but
	they're not foolproof.

2000-03-07  Brent Welch <>

	* modules/cgi: Preliminary version of a CGI module.  Still needs
	some cookie functions, test suite, and docs...
2000-03-07  Eric Melski <>

	* modules/math: math library

	* added math library to list of modules

2000-03-07  Scott Stanton  <>

	* configure: 
	* aclocal.m4:
	* Changed to use shared config subdirectory.  Also
	fixed problem on Windows builds where it would fail to identify
	the tclsh executable to use.  Simplified to minimum
	number of macros.

2000-03-06  Eric Melski	 <>

	* man.macros: Moved from individual modules to toplevel tcllib
	dir, so that it is not repeated hundreds of times.
	* Added version number to installed tcllib dir.

	* license.terms: Adapted license from Tcl.
	* README: Added more information about file layout in module dirs.

2000-03-06  Scott Redman  <>

	*	added pop3 module.

2000-03-02  Eric Melski	 <>

	* Instead of probing install dir for modules,
	changed to take module list on command line, so that users can
	change what goes into the pkgIndex.tcl from the Makefile.
	* additional work on module list and pkgIndex.tcl
	generation.  Now changing the module list changes what is
	installed and what is put in the pkgIndex.tcl.

2000-03-02  Eric Melski	 <>

	* Work on install-libraries, install-doc; removed
	references to compiled bits.

	* Tweaked the generated pkgIndex.tcl to only
	append the dirname if it doesn't already exist in the auto_path,
	and to use \[file dirname \[info script\]\] instead of [pwd].

	* configure:
	* Removed checks for compiler, and all stuff related
	to compiling/linking (this is a tcl only extension).

	* tcl.m4: new tcl.m4 from sample extension.

2000-03-01  Eric Melski	 <>

	* Added fileutil, cmdline, mime, base64 modules.

2000-02-24  Eric Melski	 <>

	*, et al: Preliminary Makefile and configure script, and
	supporting files
