2006-11-27

  Corrected an error message in configure.  No source code changes.

2006-11-26

  Added warranty disclaimer to COPYING.  No source code changes.

2006-11-20

  Spun off tideEditor into a separate tarball.

  Converted to automake.

  Changed #includes per libtcd 2.2.

  Fixed asserts with side-effects.

  Added quoting in rewrite_tide_db.sh.

2004-10-19

  Fixed nits revealed by g++ -Wall -Wextra -pedantic.

  Took -Wall back out of the distributed Makefile.

2004-10-15

  build_tide_db and restore_tide_db:  updated to libtcd 2.0.

  restore_tide_db:  fixed bogus logic that could cause null fields to
  be output in the XML.

  Added rewrite_tide_db script.  It would be "nice" to write a program
  that reads the TCD file into memory and writes it back out, but the
  conversion to text and back is good enough that maybe I shouldn't
  bother.

2004-09-17

  build_tide_db and restore_tide_db:

  Fixed lots of bugs in xml.c.  All of the error checking and error
  messages were broken; it was failing instead of adding new time
  zones; etc.

  Lots of changes to read and write new hot comments in .txt format
  and new fields in .xml format.  TCD files can now translate to .txt
  and .xml and back with very little lossage.  Old .txt and .xml files
  (as from Harmbase 1 and other utils not yet updated) should still
  work as input to build_tide_db, except that it no longer tries to
  guess at the country if it's not specified using one of the new
  fields; instead, country is set to Unknown.

  Some cosmetic changes to .txt output to minimize the output of diff.

  Added comments in output indicating what was translated and when.

  Makefile:  added -Wall to CFLAGS (at least this stuff compiles
  cleanly).

2004-08-15

   build_tide_db.c:
   Additional tweaks related to the scanning for start of tide records
   to enable production of TCD files containing zero records from
   congen output to occur without assertion failures.

2004-08-12

    build_tide_db.c:
    Added commentary near, and commented out, a second occurrence of
    the hard-coded 27 line count fixed on 2004-08-09, which had no
    impact on the behavior of the program because the file got closed
    immediately afterward.

2004-08-09

    build_tide_db.c:
    Changed the fragile code that skips comments above the first data
    set in harmonics.txt from counting 27 lines to searching for the
    word MERCHANTABILITY.  Documented this fragility in the README.

    restore_tide_db.h:
    Updated the rote commentary added to restored .txt and .xml files.

2003-12-18

    build_tide_db.c:
    Tweaked country name parsing again.
    Changed default restriction on harmonics format input from
    "public domain" to "non-commercial use only."

2003-11-22

    build_tide_db.c:
    Fixed incorrect parsing of datum identification in harmonics file input.
    Tweaked country name parsing.

2003-04-03
David Flater

    Incorporated changes from Jan Depner to fix fandango on core and
    broken country parsing that occurred when processing NAVO files
    with build_tide_db.

2003-03-27
David Flater

    Abolished "simplified" type 2 records.  See
    http://www.flaterco.com/xtide/tcd_notes.html

2003-03-19
David Flater

    Fixed buffer overflow in build_tide_db.c that was causing
    "Missing country [nothing]" messages on some platforms.

    Realized that version.h is only used for tideEditor and has
    nothing to do with build_tide_db or restore_tide_db.  Moved
    changelog for everything else into README.txt.

2003-03-18
David Flater / August Hahn

    Incorporated patches from August Hahn:

    - complain about but make do with subordinate station fields with
    missing units (ugh).

    - modified build_tide_db.c to:

      1) process multiple files in one pass.  I changed the order of
      the arguments to the tool, so watch out for this.

      2) try to locate the country code for each station.  This
      handles the various states into the United States, as well as
      several other locations that don't quite fall right.

      3) flag countries that are missing but take no action for now
      since the country locating is not perfect yet.

    Problems with units in subordinate stations are now flagged better.

    Fixed bug where stations having slack offsets were incorrectly
    "simplified."

    Fixed bug where slack offsets of zero were equated to omitted slack
    offsets.  Omitted slack offsets are now represented with the value
    NULLSLACKOFFSET defined in libtcd/tcd.h.
