I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

Hooray for Tim Bunce and his Changes files

[ #21216 ]
It's always a joy to read Tim Bunce's Changes file in DBI. DBI 1.45 just came out:

=head2 Changes in DBI 1.45 (svn rev 480),    6th October 2004

  Fixed DBI::DBD code for drivers broken in 1.44.
  Fixed "Free to wrong pool"/"Attempt to free unreferenced scalar" in FETCH.

=head2 Changes in DBI 1.44 (svn rev 478),    5th October 2004

  Fixed build issues on VMS thanks to Jakob Snoer.
  Fixed DBD::File finish() method to return 1 thanks to Jan Dubois.
  Fixed rare core dump during global destruction thanks to Mark Jason Dominus.
  Fixed risk of utf8 flag persisting from one row to the next.

  Changed bind_param_array() so it doesn't require all bind arrays
    to have the same number of elements.
  Changed bind_param_array() to error if placeholder number <= 0.
  Changed execute_array() definition, and default implementation,
    to effectively NULL-pad shorter bind arrays.
  Changed execute_array() to return "0E0" for 0 as per the docs.
  Changed execute_for_fetch() definition, and default implementation,
    to return "0E0" for 0 like execute() and execute_array().
  Changed Test::More prerequisite to Test::Simple (which is also the name
    of the distribution both are packaged in) to work around ppm behaviour.

  Corrected docs to say that get/set of unknown attribute generates
    a warning and is no longer fatal. Thanks to Vadim.
  Corrected fetchall_arrayref() docs example thanks to Drew Broadley.

  Added $h1->swap_inner_handle($h2) sponsored by BizRate.com
