Cgiapp 1.6.0, "Wart Removal", has been released!
This release does not add any new methods, but adds quite a lot in terms of functionality:
phpt tests. I finished writing a suite of unit tests using the phpt
framework popularized by the PHP-QA project and PEAR. This process helped me
find some obscure bugs in the class, as well as some… well, downright ugly
code, and to fix these areas. (To be honest, most of the 'ugly' code was a
result of being too literal when porting from perl and not using more standard
PHP functionality.) Among the bugs fixed:
s_delete()now works properly.
s_param()now behave gracefully when given bad data (as do a number of other methods)
header_*()suite now function as documented.
- All methods now react gracefully to bad input.
croak()no longer echo directly to the output stream (and, in the case of
croak(), die); they use
trigger_error(). This will allow developers to use
croak()as part of their regular arsenal of PHP errors — including allowing PHP error handling. Additionally, most
croak()calls in the class were changed to
carp()as they were not truly fatal errors.
PEAR packaging. Cgiapp can now be installed using PEAR's installer. Simply
download the package and type
pear install Cgiapp-1.6.0.tgzto get Cgiapp installed sitewide on your system!
As usual, Cgiapp is available at the Cgiapp website.
