2018-07-20 Brian Ripley

	* DESCRIPTION: Version is 0.8-71
	* src/spss.c: add comment.

2018-07-18 Brian Ripley

	* DESCRIPTION: Version is 0.8-70.1 (released for R-devel only)
	* BUGS: remove ancient file about one fixed bug.
	* src/{dbfopen,pfm-read,sfm-read,stataread}.c:
	  tweaks to placate gcc 8.  In dbfopen.c there was a
	  possible truncation by one byte.

2017-11-28 Brian Ripley

	* DESCRIPTION: Version is 0.8-70
	* tests/spss.Rout.save: update for R-pre-3.5.0 chanages to str()
	  (and correct line endings)
	* tests/mval_bug.Rout.save: correct to CRLF line endings.

2017-06-21  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* DESCRIPTION: Version is 0.8-69
	* add more sophisticated test cases and new examples for read.spss

2017-06-20  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* R/spss.R: 
	 - fix for R >= 3.4.0 not allowing duplicated factor labels,
	   hence new arguments
	   'duplicated.value.labels' and 'duplicated.value.labels.infix'
	   that control whether to make factor labels unique or to condence 
	   all levels with identical factor labels into one level
	 - new argument 'add.undeclared.levels': Many files observed in the wild
	   have variables with one or more value labels and further 
	   non-missing values that have no value label. 
	   We cann now sepcify whether the other levels should be appended or sorted
	   into the declared labels, or not to convert to factor at all.
	   This fixes several issues, e.g. that values without labels were 
	   regarded as NA values before.

2017-06-19  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>
	
	* R/spss.R: 
	 - allow to pass a "..." argument to as.data.frame,
	   add argument "sub" for substituting invalid chars rather than returning NAs and 
	   allowing for back compatibility
	 - now also auto-reencodes if R is ruinning in a latin-1 locale and sav file's encoding is not.
	* src/sfm-read.c: Update for format type 7 subtypes:
	 - more comments and restructured
	 - information from 
	   https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/pspp-dev/html_node/System-File-Format.html#System-File-Format
	 - no longer warns for subtypes 12, 17, 18, 19, 20, 24 as these can be safely ignored
	 - more informative warning messages for subtypes 14, 21, 22 (long strings)

2017-06-12  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* R/spss.R: use iconv(..., sub=".") so that character labels/names/values
	  with invalid or non convertible chars are no longer silently coerced to NA

2017-06-09  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* src/sfm-read.c: Do not evaluate the write field for the format 
	  type any more as this produces errors and given 
	  https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/pspp-dev/html_node/Variable-Record.html#Variable-Record
	  tells us on June 9, 2017:
	  "A few system files have been observed in the wild with invalid write fields, 
	  in particular with value 0. Readers should probably treat invalid print or 
	  write fields as some default format. "

2017-05-04  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* several bugfixes for writeForeignSPSS:
	  add/correct declaration of factors and ordered factors (nominal, ordered);
	  add/correct declaration of numeric (scale) variables;
	  calculate length of character variables correctly, even if 
	  all entries are NA and there is no longer a 255 char limit 
	  (since SPSS 13); 
	  data files are typically encoded in the current locale and not always ASCII;
	  variable name list must not exceed 251 chars for each line of code 
	  and had to be wrapped

2017-04-29  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* add maxchars = 32L argument to writeForeignSPSS
      in order to allow for longer variable names for SPSS versions > 12
	* bugfix in writeForeignSPSS for declaration of character variables by prefixed stars
	
2017-04-27  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* writeForeignCode.R: SET DECIMAL=DOT. in SPSS required if 
	  it runs in a locale with DECIMAL=comma

2017-04-22  Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>

	* DESCRIPTION: Version is 0.8-68
	* src/sfm-read.c: no longer convert variable name characters to upper case nor give warnings
	  (as this fails in multi byte encodings and seems not to be required)

2016-09-24 Brian Ripley

	* man/read.dta.Rd: mention package 'haven'.

	* configure, configure.ac, src/Makevars.in, src/swap_bytes.h.in,
	cleanup:  The header had always #undef-ed HAVE_GLIBC_SWAP, so

	added factor writing for Stata,
	long names now abbreviate()d not truncated.
	Fixed various idiocies in writing strings.

2001-11-12 Thomas Lumley <tlumley@u.washington.edu>
	* src/stataread.c, R/read.dta.R, man/*.dta.Rd,
	tests/datefactor.dta, tests/stata.R: read factors,
	read and write dates in Stata.

	* src/stataread.c: use strlen(), not the field width, as the
	argument to allocString().

2001-07-23  Saikat DebRoy  <saikat@stat.wisc.edu>

	* src/pfm-read.c, src/spss.c: Do not inline functions on non-gcc
	compilers.
	* src/sfmP.h: Don not use the __atribute__ keyword on non-gcc
	compilers.

2001-07-17 Brian Ripley	 <ripley@stats.ox.ac.uk>

	* DESCRIPTION (Version): New version is 0.4-6.

	* src/sfm-read.c Use Free not free consistently.

	* src/spss.c (do_read_SPSS): Always open in binary mode.

2001-06-18  Kurt Hornik	 <Kurt.Hornik@ci.tuwien.ac.at>

	* DESCRIPTION (Version): New version is 0.4-5.

	* src/pfm-read.c (pfm_read_dictionary): Use Calloc() instead of
	R_alloc().

	* src/sfm-read.c (sfm_read_dictionary): Use Calloc() instead of
	R_alloc().

	* src/spss.c (do_read_SPSS): Check for null file pointer.

2001-06-09  Kurt Hornik	 <Kurt.Hornik@ci.tuwien.ac.at>

	* tests/*.R, tests/*.Rout.save:	 Remove `gctorture(TRUE)'.

	* R/*.R: Change name of filename argument to `file'.  Add
	`PACKAGE' arg in FF calls where missing.  Remove .First.lib() from
	stataread.

	* man/*.Rd: Change name of filename argument to `file', and be
	consistent about using keyword `file'.

2001-05-16  Saikat DebRoy  <saikat@stat.wisc.edu>

	* src/SASxport.c (next_xport_info): changed size of allocated
	array tmp - it must be at least 81.

2001-05-14  Saikat DebRoy  <saikat@stat.wisc.edu>

	* R/read.dta.R, src/stataread.c, man/read.dta.Rd, man/write.dta.Rd:
	Added Stata Version 7 support from Thomas Lumley

2001-04-09  Saikat DebRoy  <saikat@stat.wisc.edu>

	* src/SASxport.c (next_xport_info):
	initialized *tailpad to 0. Fixed value of *tailpad
	when end of file occurs while trying to get a new record (line
	350). Fixed possible memory leaks in case of call to error.
	(xport_info):  Fixed possible memory leaks in case of call to
	error. Removed most of the Calloc-ed arrays and replaced them with R
	objects.

2001-04-03  Saikat DebRoy  <saikat@stat.wisc.edu>

	* src/SASxport.c (next_xport_info): fixed computation of tailpad
	when restOfCard != 0. The earlier method used ftell which can give
	wrong results for long files.

2001-03-31  Brian Ripley <ripley@stats.ox.ac.uk>

	* R/read.S.R, man/read.S.Rd:
	New files adapted from package Rstreams to read S3 objects and dumps.

	rows in SAS XPORT data sets when the rows are short

2001-01-24  Douglas Bates  <bates@stat.wisc.edu>

	* src/SASxport.c (next_xport_info): Adding yet another rule to try
	to detect the number of rows in a SAS data set.

2000-12-14  Douglas Bates  <bates@stat.wisc.edu>

	* cleanup: Added the cleanup script.

	and in others so they do not produce error reports during R CMD
	check.
