[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated, libpipeline-1.4.0-1


libpipeline 1.4.0 (25 October 2014)

Various portability fixes for Solaris, mostly suggested by Peter Bray.
This includes a PIPELINE_QUIET environment variable which suppresses
the error message normally emitted when a subprocess is terminated by
a signal.

Add `pipecmd_fchdir', which is analogous to `pipecmd_chdir' but takes an
open file descriptor rather than a path.

libpipeline 1.3.1 (22 September 2014)

Fix test failures on Cygwin.

Fix build on systems with neither setenv nor clearenv, e.g. Solaris 8.


libpipeline is a C library for manipulating pipelines of sub-processes in a flexible and convenient way.

Libpipeline is required for man-db. Man-db is an alternative 'man' package ( Man-db is used by major Linux distributions such as Debian, Suse, and Fedora. A big advantage of man-db is better internationalisation support.
Porting of man-db to Cygwin is being worked on.


On 32-bit Cygwin one test out of 7 fails (test basic). With a static library all tests succeed, but this package contains a shared library, which is preferred. Tests with man-db have not shown errors.

On 64-bit Cygwin all tests pass.

best regards,

Erwin Waterlander
