Patch for DBI 1.34 Driver.xst - needed by DBD::Informix 2003.0x

Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII


I've had multiple reports of problems compiling DBD::Informix 2003.03.*
and 2003.04, on both Linux and Solaris, and the problem turns out to be
in the DBI 1.34 code in Driver.xst for handling data_sources (which is
still my fault - mostly).  Newer versions of GCC (eg 3.2.1 - as found on
my machine) are mostly C-99 compliant and accept variable declarations
part way through a block of code; older versions of GCC (eg 2.9x) do not
accept this, and neither do the Sun C Compilers.  And the generated code
for data_sources from Driver.xst as found in DBI 1.34 gets a variable
declared after some executable code (thanks to Boban for sending the
Informix.c file that demonstrated the problem).

    /* Example of the problem */
    int function(void)
        int i;
        i = 3;
        int j = i + 1;  /* OK in GCC 3.2.1 and C-99 - and C++ */
        return (j);

The attachment is a patch for Driver.xst from DBI 1.34.  It puts the
variable declarations at the start of a block (by introducing a new
block) and annotates why.

With luck, this means that DBD::Informix v2003.03.* and v2003.04 will
compile OK with the amended template file.

address fails.  After applying your DBI 1.34 path, I can get 2003:04 to 
compile on Solaris.   Here's a recap (sorry for also posting to your human 
address) of ItWorks.  As noted below, uses a 
'connect_quietly' method, which isn't found.  I 'use'-ed TestHarness and 
changed it to "connect_to_test_database" and that works.  Did 
connect_quietly go away in 2003?

address fails.  After applying your DBI 1.34 patch, it works!

In order to get ItWorks to work, I had to modify 
DBD::Informix::TechSupport to remove the (line 219)
my ($dbh) = &connect_quietly();

What I did was add:
use DBD::Informix::TestHarness;
to ItWorks and change the connect_quietly to:
my ($dbh) = &connect_to_test_database();

Patches for DBI v1.32
---559023410-851401618-1039913737=:6184 Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII Dear Tim, Here's a new set of patches against the original DBI v1.32 for the files: Driver.xst dbd_xsh.h lib/DBI/ The patches are gzipped. To apply them, use: gunzip DBI.patches.gz cd DBI-1.32 patch -p0 <../DBI.patches The file has undergone a whole lot more change -- it is, I think, in even better shape than the version shipped earlier. If you need them, I can redo the patches against that revised version of the file, but I'd rather no...

DBI 1.35 and greater break DBD-Informix 1.04 and 2003-04

DBI::Format in DBI-1.34 vs. DBI-Shell-11.91
There seem to be conflicting versions of DBI::Format in DBI-1.34 and DBI-Shell-11.91. After upgrading to the recent DBI-1.34 I again get a warning from the CPAN "r" command which reports that there is a more recent version of DBI::Format to be found in DBI-Shell-11.91.tar. When I read that the new DBI-1.34 removed the old DBI::Shell from distribution, I was surporised that it kept DBI::Format. I couldn't find any perl references in DBI-1.34 that refered to DBI::Format, so perhaps if the official DBI::Format is being kept up to date in DBI-Shell-11.91, you could ...

DBI Driver.xst and DBD::cego
Hi! I try to maintain the FreeBSD port databases/p5-DBD-cego, and it has a problem if I compile it with clang.

sv_undef in DBI 1.30 Driver.xst?
Tim, I note that Driver.xst contains references to sv_undef rather than PL_sv_undef. The ipport.h file arranges to map PL_sv_undef to sv_undef for Perl 4.

DBI 1.15
Hi, I just upgraded from DBI 1.14 to 1.15. After the install completed, I ran a check on what else needed to be upgraded, the CPAN module reports that DBD::ADO module needs to be upgraded from the current 0.419 to version 1.17 as found in DBI 1.14. Why did the version regress? Let's take a look at the code for blib/DBD/ in DBI 1.15 and 1.14: Anubis JL: pwd /work/jleffler/.cpan/build/DBI-1.15 Anubis JL: grep '$VERSION =' lib/DBD/ $VERSION = '0.4'.sprintf("%02d",substr(q$Revision: 1.19 $, 12,-1)); Anubis JL: cd /work2/DBD-Informix/...

DBI V 1.39, DBD::mysql V 2.9002, and DBI->data_sources()
Hi Folks 1) Under 'synopsis', it says: @data_sources =3D DBI->data_sources($driver_name, \%attr, $dbh); however that combination of options is not listed under the discussion of= data_sources(). Anyway, I tried DBI -> data_sources('mysql') and got an empty list. Sigh. I tried DBI -> data_sources('mysql', {}, $dbh) and got: Undefined subroutine &DBD::mysql::db::SQL_VARCHAR called at= C:/Perl/site/lib//DBD/ line 337. 2) Under 'data_sources', it says: A $dbh can also be used as the $driver argument.

Problem with DBI-1.20 vs. DBI-1.19
I've found a reproducible failure that occurs in DBI-1.20 that does not occur in DBI-1.19. Using the DBD::mysql backend, by the way, and observed using both mysql-3.23.37 and mysql-3.23.46 (it's not asked about in the bug report format). Apologies if yahoo mail mangled the newlines.

[PATCH DBI] RE: [BUG] DBI 1.20, bleadperl and 64 bit ints not mixing too well
Tim The attached patch corrects various pointer cast, printf format and "computed value not used" warning from DBI; which I found following up the following messages. I was using perl-5.7.2@11938, configured with -Duse64bitint. My solution to the setlinebuf warning was to delete all the PerlIO definitions, perhaps not the best solution.
