CHANGES
=======

libpipeline 1.5.3 (13 August 2020)
==================================

Fix implementation-defined behaviour while handling read/write errors.

Port tests to the modern Check API.

libpipeline 1.5.2 (1 January 2020)
==================================

`pipecmd_exec' now calls `_exit' rather than `exit', to avoid bugs such as
functions registered using `atexit' being called multiple times.

Document that standard FDs must be open before calling `pipeline_start'.

DESCRIPTION
===========

libpipeline is a C library for manipulating pipelines of sub-processes 
in a flexible and convenient way.
See http://libpipeline.nongnu.org/

Libpipeline is required for man-db. Man-db is an alternative 'man' 
package (http://man-db.nongnu.org/). Man-db is used by major Linux 
distributions such as Debian, Suse, and Fedora. A big advantage of 
man-db is better internationalisation support.


PORTING NOTES
==============

All tests pass.


best regards,
