add ncurses support


2009-12-05  Adrian Mariano  <adrian@alpaca>

	* units.c (rootunit): Fixed bug (n & 1==0) is always false

	* Numerous minor changes for eliminating warnings with -Wall

2009-10-03 Adrian Mariano  <adrian@alpaca>

	* units.c (main): Changed RL_READLINE_VERSION test from > to >=.

2007-05-18  adrian  <>

	* units.c (personalunitsfile): Added personalunitsfile() function
	to find ~/.units.dat if it exists.  Added code in main() to load
	this file (first) when no -f specifications occur. 
	(tryallunits): Modified to perform searching either for
	conformable units or for text matching units.  This required
	changes to addtolist() as well.

	* parse.y: Added entry to support x^-y when - is not a multiply
	operator.  Added MULTSTAR type and support for lower multiply
	precedence for '*'.  Added special check for '**' operator as the
	old code didn't work.

2006-02-26  adrian  <>

	* units.c: Added -1/--one-line option to display one line of
	output only.

	* units.c: Added --compact option to print output with only the
	conversion factor.  

	* units.c: Changed verbose variable.  Now it is 1 for normal
	output, zero for less output and 2 for more verbose output.  The
	--compact option sets it to zero, and --verbose sets it to 2.  The
	--terse option now simply sets other options. 

2005-09-10  adrian  <>

	* parse.y: Declared err as static and added %name-prefix to parser
	to make it possible to use units as a library.  Note that
	declaring err as static also averts a bus error on the Intel Mac.

2004-12-12  adrian  <>

	* units.c (checkunits): Added check for units that use '-' as a
	binary operator.  These units will act differently depending on
	the way the program is invoked, so print a warning.  

	* units.c (compareproducts): Modified to use a pointer to a function
	to decide whether a unit should be regarded as dimensionless.  Added
	functions ignore_dimless(), ignore_primitive() and ignore_nothing()
        to use for invoking compareproducts.  Modified compareunits to take
	this parameter as well.  

2004-06-20  Adrian Mariano  <>

        * parse.y: Added MINUS token and changed lexer to treat '-'
	according to the global variable minusminus either as MINUS or in
	the old fashion as MULTMINUS.

	* parse.y (funcunit): Added call to freeunit() to close memory leak.

	* units.c (compareproducts): Altered this function to use
	isdimless() when comparing units so that dimensionless units can
	be ignored in the comparison.  Added isdimless() which checks
	whether a unit is defined as NODIM. 

2003-12-04  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (lookupunit): Added check for -ies plural

2003-09-20  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (readunits): Wrote in a file to capture error messages,
	pass back an error return instead of calling exit(), do included
	units files with "!include", give error on nested "!locale"

2003-05-09  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: (readunits): Added error checking for function and
	prefix names.  

2002-05-06  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (reduceunit): The last change to reduceunit was screwed
	up.  Corrected it.  

2001-11-26  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (readunits): Added locale checks to support the
	'!locale' syntax in units.dat.

	* Added --enable-path-search option which replaces
	the use of an empty datadir for specifying path searching.  

2001-08-30  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (reduceunit): Separated two calls to reduceproduct().
	This fixes a bug where "Unit reduction error" occurs instead of
	"Unknown unit".  

2001-08-17  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (tryallunits): Added signal() calls to ignore the
	SIGPIPE signal and hopefully prevent premature termination.

2000-05-28  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (addtolist): Modified tryallunits() to search function
	definitions and produce a sorted list, piped through the pager.
	Modified ishelpquery to invoke ishelpquery to produce a list.

2000-04-18  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (fgetscont): Added fix for backslash at the end of the

2000-04-13  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (readunits): Set "userfile" when a path search is
	performed so that "help" can find the data file.  
	(ishelpquery): Modified to find functions and prefixes.

2000-04-12  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (ishelpquery): Wrote new function to print help messages
	by invoking a pager on units.dat.  This required new field in
	unitlist structure, and code in main() to check for the "help"

2000-04-10  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* parse.y: rewrote parser rules for correct unary '-'.

	* units.c (showdefinition): Substantially simplified and made
	correct for expressions that start with an operator (/ or -).

2000-04-09  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (isfunction): Fixed call to removepadding()

2000-02-12  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (fgetscont): Fixed buffer full test

1999-04-27  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (addsubunit,addsubunitlist): Changed overflow test.

Mon Aug 17 13:12:01 1998  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (addunit): Added declaration for handlesum() so that it
	isn't called before being declared.  Moved handlesum down the code
	past completereduce() so that handlesum doesn't call
	completereduce() before its definition.  

Sun Mar  8 10:08:56 1998  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (main): Set rl_basic_word_break_characters to delimit
	words properly for unit completion.

Mon Jun  9 19:12:08 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (lookupunit): Switched order of prefix and plural
	handling so that plurals are handled first.  (This fixes the
	problem of "pints" being interpreted as p- plus ints.)

Sun Apr  6 01:01:24 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (removepadding): Added check for zero length strings.
	This caused units to hang when invoked with arguments that
	consisted only of whitespace.  

Mon Mar 10 19:23:21 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Changed 2 strdup() calls into dupstr() calls. 

Sun Mar  2 18:02:16 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: replaced sscanf with strtod affecting numlength() and
	addnumber().  This circumvents a bug in NeXT's C library and
	yields simpler code.  

Wed Feb 12 22:28:42 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (showanswer): Fixed to give slightly better display when
	verbose mode is active.

Tue Jan 21 18:51:58 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Changed showanswer() to convert reciprocal units.
	Added -s,--strict option to disable this conversion.  

Mon Jan 13 20:37:26 1997  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Added addnumber() because recursive call to addunit()
	was causing problems with strtok.

Tue Dec 31 00:57:42 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (prefixhash): Changed to AND with 127 because signed
	chars seem to be causing segmentation faults with 8 bit
	characters.  Changed size of the table to 128 to correspond.

Thu Dec 26 13:54:59 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (completeunits): Added 1 to mymalloc() call so there is
	enough space.  (This fixes the tab bug.)

Mon Dec  9 23:46:27 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* unit.c (addunit): Changed logic for calling handlesum() to check
	that the character immediately before the '+' is not an 'e' since
	this would probably be an exponent.

Mon Dec  7 10:47:43 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (lookupunit): Added tempbuf variable to prevent problems
	when the output from one call to lookupunit is used as input to a
	later call to lookupunit.

	* units.c: Changed main() and processargs() to allow invoking
	units with just one unit specified on the command line.  

Tue Dec  3 14:19:33 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: added verbose option, changed showanswer() to give
	verbose display, removed first argument from showunit(), added new
	function removepadding() to trim whitespace.  

	* New file: texi2man, a perl script for converting the texinfo
	documentation into the man page format. changed to
	generate from units.texinfo.  

Mon Dec  2 14:10:56 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: New functions handlesum(), addsubunitlist(), and
	(addunit): Call handlesum() if there are '+' characters in the
	string to be added.  This handles sums of conformable units.
	Added free() calls to free savescr when returning with an error.

Sun Dec  1 17:30:52 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Added isblank() and showdefinition().  Changed main()
	to call showdefinition if the second unit entered is blank.  Also
	changed the loop to re-prompt the user for the first unit until
	something nonblank is entered. Changed showunit() to take two

Wed Nov 27 23:08:33 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Added function completeunits() for doing completion
	when readline is in use.

	* added support for LDFLAGS.  

	* units.c (lookupunits): Added tests to avoid trying plurals on
	one character long base units.

Fri Nov 22 19:25:23 1996  Kaveh R. Ghazi  <>

	*,, units.c: add ansi2knr support.

	* New files: aclocal.m4, ansi2knr.1 and ansi2knr.c.

Fri Nov 22 10:33:43 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Added removespaces() function called from addunits() to
	remove spaces around '^' characters so the user doesn't have to be
	so careful.

Thu Nov 21 23:39:09 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (lookupunit): Added check to return the input if it is a
	number.  This was made necessary by the change in the handling of
	numbers which broke the '^' operator on numbers. 

Thu Nov 21 15:22:40 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c (numlength): Changed test for sscanf to require a return
	value of exactly 1.  For some reason, sscanf sometimes returns -1
	instead of 0 when no fields were read.

Thu Nov 21 09:17:26 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	*  Added ALL_CFLAGS so that CFLAGS can be used by the

	* Added fix to look for ncurses library to go with
	readline.  (Required by some linux version.)  

Wed Nov 20 14:03:22 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* Added check for const support.

	* added VPATH, fixed a few places where $(srcdir) was
	needed, fixed the install targets to create directories if
	necessary by calling mkinstalldirs.  Fixed man pages install

Sun Nov 17 00:05:12 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Added numlength() to handle "numbers" with multiple 'e'
	or '.' characters.  Changed number evaluation in addunit() to do
	something reasonable when multiple '|' characters appear.  Now
	number evaluation is done by sscanf() instead of atof().  Removed
	handling of numbers with no trailing space from lookupunit() and
	added it to addunit() with a recursive call.

Thu Nov  1 16:18:08 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Fixed up portability for string.h, stdlib.h.  Added
	declarations for string functions and atof().

        * units.c: Removed calls to tolower() since they turned out to be

Sun Sep  8 10:19:43 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Added long options, made option flag variables global.

	* units.c: Added freeunit() function to free units (which was
	never done), and uncommented two free() calls in cancelunit().

	* units.c: Added processargs() function to tidy things up. 

Thu Sep  5 01:18:52 1996  Adrian Mariano  <>

	* units.c: Removed all the static char * buffers and added
	support for readline().  Added growbuffer() and fgetslong() and

	* units.c (readunits): Rewrote parsing to be cleaner and to remove
	trailing white space in units.
