68  15. If a forward reference was repeated with an upper limit of around 2000,  15. If a forward reference was repeated with an upper limit of around 2000,
69      it caused the error "internal error: overran compiling workspace". This      it caused the error "internal error: overran compiling workspace". The
70      is now checked, and causes "too many forward references" instead.      maximum number of forward references (including repeats) was limited by the
71        internal workspace, and dependent on the LINK_SIZE. The code has been
72        rewritten so that the workspace expands (via pcre_malloc) if necessary, and
73        the default depends on LINK_SIZE. There is a new upper limit (for safety)
74        of around 200,000 forward references. While doing this, I also speeded up
75        the filling in of repeated forward references.
76    
77    16. A repeated forward reference in a pattern such as (a)(?2){2}(.) was
78        incorrectly expecting the subject to contain another "a" after the start.
79    
80    17. When (*SKIP:name) is activated without a corresponding (*MARK:name) earlier
81        in the match, the SKIP should be ignored. This was not happening; instead
82        the SKIP was being treated as NOMATCH. For patterns such as
83        /A(*MARK:A)A+(*SKIP:B)Z|AAC/ this meant that the AAC branch was never
84        tested.
85    
86    18. The behaviour of (*MARK), (*PRUNE), and (*THEN) has been reworked and is
87        now much more compatible with Perl, in particular in cases where the result
88        is a non-match for a non-anchored pattern. For example, if
89        /b(*:m)f|a(*:n)w/ is matched against "abc", the non-match returns the name
90        "m", where previously it did not return a name. A side effect of this
91        change is that for partial matches, the last encountered mark name is
92        returned, as for non matches. A number of tests that were previously not
93        Perl-compatible have been moved into the Perl-compatible test files. The
94        refactoring has had the pleasing side effect of removing one argument from
95        the match() function, thus reducing its stack requirements.
96    
97    19. If the /S+ option was used in pcretest to study a pattern using JIT,
98        subsequent uses of /S (without +) incorrectly behaved like /S+.
99    
100    21. Retrieve executable code size support for the JIT compiler and fixing
101        some warnings.
102    
103    22. A caseless match of a UTF-8 character whose other case uses fewer bytes did
104        not work when the shorter character appeared right at the end of the
105        subject string.
106    
107    23. Added some (int) casts to non-JIT modules to reduce warnings on 64-bit
108        systems.
109    
110    24. Added PCRE_INFO_JITSIZE to pass on the value from (21) above, and also
111        output it when the /M option is used in pcretest.
112    
113    25. The CheckMan script was not being included in the distribution. Also, added
114        an explicit "perl" to run Perl scripts from the PrepareRelease script
115        because this is reportedly needed in Windows.
116    
117    26. If study data was being save in a file and studying had not found a set of
118        "starts with" bytes for the pattern, the data written to the file (though
119        never used) was taken from uninitialized memory and so caused valgrind to
120        complain.
121    
122    27. Updated RunTest.bat as provided by Sheri Pierce.
123    
124    28. Fixed a possible uninitialized memory bug in pcre_jit_compile.c.
125    
126    29. Computation of memory usage for the table of capturing group names was
127        giving an unnecessarily large value.
