Module Name:    pkgsrc
Committed By:   rhaen
Date:           Thu Jul 17 11:28:06 UTC 2008

Modified Files:
        pkgsrc/devel/p5-Curses: Makefile distinfo
        pkgsrc/devel/p5-Curses/patches: patch-aa

Log Message:
- updated to 1.23
- send patch-aa to upstream (so that they can include it - hopefully)
The Curses Perl module was created by William Setzer (William_Setzer
at in 1994.  William maintained it up until July 2001, when he
stopped having time to do so.

In September 2004, Bryan Henderson ( took over
maintainership of it, after confirming with William that he did not
plan to continue.

The module has always been distributed via CPAN.

Curses itself is much older than the Perl implementation.  Curses was
originally only a C programming library.

New in 1.23 (Released March 9, 2008)

  Fix crash of Makefile.PL on Windows.

New in 1.22 (Released February 29, 2008)

  Nothing.  Just a packaging fix.

New in 1.21 (Released February 15, 2008)

  Don't undefine 'bool' macro in c-darwin hints file.

New in 1.20 (Released November 19, 2007)

  Fix missing comment delimiter.

New in 1.19 (Released November 18, 2007)

  Make it work on 5.005 again, using ppport.h (Devel::PPPort).
  From Slaven Rezic - slaven <at> rezic <dot> de .

  Fix uninitialized value in Makefile.PL on a system without BSD Curses or
  Ncurses in a common place.

  Reverse change to chgat() in 1.16.  Make expected argument count 4.

There was never a 1.18 release; problems with PAUSE prevent using that
release number.

New in 1.17 (Released October 14, 2007)

  Fix bug - can't find c-config.h on a system with ncursesw.

  Make cdemo work on Windows.

  Don't undefine SP macro with Pdcurses.  (Otherwise it won't compile;
  don't know why we used to undefine SP).

  In Windows hints file, #include curses.h instead of pdcurses.h.  It
  seems to be called curses.h these days.

New in 1.16 (August 7, 2007)

  Use Ncursesw (Ncurses with wide character functions) instead of
  Ncurses if available.

  Undefine "tab" macro, defined by Curses header file.  It interferes
  with perl.h.

  Fix demo.form to use L! instead of J in the pack template that generates
  the new_form() argument.  Apparently, J is something from older Perl
  and doesn't exist in current Perl.

  Put some documentation of the library in comments in demo.form.

  Use L! instead of I in the pack template in

  Change SvPV(X,PL_na) to SvPV_nolen(X) to get with the times.

  Change #!/usr/local/bin/perl to #! /usr/bin/perl .

  Fix bug: chgat() requires an extra, meaningless, argument.  Fix changes
  expected argument count from 4 to 3.

New in 1.15 (October 8, 2006)

  Add a simple load test 00-load.t.

  Makefile.PL: use cdemo.obj instead of cdemo.o on Windows.

  Makefile.PL: Guess ncurses/bsd based on what .h files exist.

  Fix bug in Makefile.PL: doesn't use curses type in guess at c-config.h
  (e.g. tries to use c-freebsd.h when it should use c-freebsd.bsd.h).

  Change all sv_isa() to sv_derived_from() so you can use subclasses.
  Thanks Leigh <>.

  Rename default Darwin (Mac OS X) hints file (ca 2001) to c-darwin.old, and
  the newer one ca 2004) to c-darwin.old so as to be the default.  We're
  guessing that the newer one applies to more systems today.

New in 1.14 (June 3, 2006)

  Make demo.form work on 64 bit machine.

  Add some narration to Makefile.PL to help with diagnosis.

  Move undef of 'instr' from individual hint files to Curses.c and add

  Use perl -w instead of 'use warnings' in Makefile.PL so it works with
  older Perl.

New in 1.13 (October 10, 2005)

  Fix so it builds on current Cygwin.

  Some kind of build fix to get panels, forms, and menu functions to build.
