Changelog for cpphs-1.7

Version 1.7 ----------- * Bugfix in interaction of --unlit with \end{code} Version 1.6 ----------- * New command-line option: "--include=filename". * New command-line option: "--strip-eol" for comment-stripping. * Line pragmas can have filenames containing spaces. Version 1.5 ----------- * Parametrised macro-calls now permitted in #ifdef's. * Recursive textual expansion now permitted in #ifdef's. * Better options-handling when used as a library. * Various small bugfixes Version 1.4 ----------- * Added a "--pragma" option to retain #pragma in the output. * Fixed a number of obscure corner cases involving the interaction of multiple features e.g. foo##__LINE__. * Added the "--nowarn" option. Version 1.3 ----------- * Added a "--cpp" option for drop-in compatibility with standard cpp. It causes cpphs to accept standard cpp flags and translate them to cpphs equivalents. Compatibility options include: -o, -ansi, -traditional, -stdc, -x, -include, -P, -C, -CC, -A. The file behaviour is different too - if two filenames are given on the commandline, then the second is treated as the output location. * Fixed a corner-case bug in evaluating chained and overlapping #ifdefs. Version 1.2 ----------- * Re-arranged the source files into hierarchical libraries. * Exposed the library interface as an installable Cabal package, with Haddock documentation. * Added the --unlit option, for removing literate-style comments. Version 1.1 ----------- * Fix the .cabal way of building cpphs. * Update the --version reported (forgotten in 1.0, which still reports 0.9) * No longer throws an error when given an empty file as input. Version 1.0 ----------- * Add a compatibility script cpphs.compat, allowing cpphs to act as a drop-in replacement for cpp, e.g. ghc -cpp -pgmP cpphs.compat * Place quotes around replacements for special macros __FILE__, __DATE__, and __TIME__. * If no files are specified, read from stdin. * Ignore #! lines (e.g. in scripts) * Parse -D commandline options once only, and consistently with cpp, i.e. -Dfoo means foo=1 * Fix compatibility with preprocessors like hsc2hs, which use non-cpp directives like #def. They are now passed through to the output with a warning to stderr. Version 0.9 ----------- * Bugfix for ghc-6.4 -O: flush the output buffer. Version 0.8 ----------- * Added the --text option, to signify the input should not be lexed as Haskell. This causes macros to be defined or expanded regardless of their location within comments, string delimiters, etc. * Shuffle a few files around to make it easier to say 'hmake cpphs'. There is also now a runhugs script to invoke cpphs nicely. Version 0.7 ----------- * Enable the __FILE__, __LINE__, __DATE__, and __TIME__ specials, which can be useful for creating DIY error messages. Version 0.6 ----------- * Recognise and ignore the #pragma cpp directive. * Fix beginning-of-file bug, where in --noline mode, a # cpp directive at the top of the file appeared in the output. * Fix chained parenthesised boolean exprs in #if, e.g. #if ( foo ) && ( bar ) * Fix precedence in chained unparenthesised boolean exprs in #if, e.g. #if foo && bar || baz && frob * For better compatibility with cpp, and because otherwise there are certain constructs that cannot be expressed, we no longer permit whitespace in a <tt>#define</tt> between the symbolname and an opening parenthesis, e.g. #define f (f' id) Previously, this was interpreted as a parametrised macro, with arguments in the parens, and no expansion. Now, the space indicates that this is a textual replacement, and the parenthesised expression is in fact the replacement. Version 0.5 ----------- * Added a --version flag to report the version number. * Renamed --stringise to --hashes, and use it to turn on ## catenation as well. * Bugfix for #if 1, previously taken as false. * Bugfix for --nolines: it no longer adds extra spurious newlines. * File inclusion now looks in the directory of the calling file. * Failure to find an include file is now merely a warning to stderr rather than an error. * Added a --layout flag. Previously, line continuations in a macro definition were always preserved in the output, permitting use of the Haskell layout rule even inside a macro. The default is now to remove line continuations for conformance with cpp, but the option of using --layout is still possible. Version 0.4 ----------- * New flag -Ofile to redirect output * Bugfix for precedence in #if !False && False * Bugfix for whitespace between # and if * Bugfix for #define F "blah"; #include F Version 0.3 ----------- * Bugfix for recursive macro expansion. * New flag --strip to remove C comments even outside cpp directives. * New flag --stringise to recognise the # stringise operator in macros. Version 0.2 ----------- * New flag --noline to eliminate #line directives from output. * Add symbol-replacement and macro-expansion. * New flag --nomacro to turn off symbol/macro-expansion. 2004-Apr-21 ----------- * Now accept multi-line # commands via the \ line continuation operator. The original file line numbering is preserved in the output by some tricky acrobatics. Version 0.1 ----------- * Initial release.
