79        (b) It was assuming that all moves were upwards in memory; this was true

81    
82        The emulated memove() is provided for those environments that have neither
83        memmove() nor bcopy(). I didn't think anyone used it these days, but that
84        is clearly not the case, as these two bugs were recently reported.

116          relevant variables.          relevant variables.
117    
118      (b) The debugging options /B and /D in pcretest show the compiled bytecode      (b) The debugging options /B and /D in pcretest show the compiled bytecode
119          with length and offset values. This means that the output is different          with length and offset values. This means that the output is different
120          for different internal link sizes. Test 2 is skipped for link sizes          for different internal link sizes. Test 2 is skipped for link sizes
121          other than 2 because of this, bypassing the problem. Unfortunately,          other than 2 because of this, bypassing the problem. Unfortunately,
122          there was also a test in test 3 (the locale tests) that used /B and          there was also a test in test 3 (the locale tests) that used /B and
123          failed for link sizes other than 2. Rather than cut the whole test out,          failed for link sizes other than 2. Rather than cut the whole test out,
124          I have added a new /Z option to pcretest that replaces the length and          I have added a new /Z option to pcretest that replaces the length and
125          offset values with spaces. This is now used to make test 3 independent          offset values with spaces. This is now used to make test 3 independent
126          of link size.          of link size. (Test 2 will be tidied up later.)
127    
128    14. If erroroffset was passed as NULL to pcre_compile, it provoked a
129        segmentation fault instead of returning the appropriate error message.
130    
131    15. In multiline mode when the newline sequence was set to "any", the pattern
132        ^$ would give a match between the \r and \n of a subject such as "A\r\nB".
133        This doesn't seem right; it now treats the CRLF combination as the line
134        ending, and so does not match in that case. It's only a pattern such as ^$
135        that would hit this one: something like ^ABC$ would have failed after \r
136        and then tried again after \r\n.
137    
138    16. Changed the comparison command for RunGrepTest from "diff -u" to "diff -ub"
139        in an attempt to make files that differ only in their line terminators
140        compare equal. This works on Linux.
141    
142    17. Under certain error circumstances pcregrep might try to free random memory
143        as it exited. This is now fixed, thanks to valgrind.
144    
145    19. In pcretest, if the pattern /(?m)^$/g<any> was matched against the string
146        "abc\r\n\r\n", it found an unwanted second match after the second \r. This
147        was because its rules for how to advance for /g after matching an empty
148        string at the end of a line did not allow for this case. They now check for
149        it specially.
150    
151    20. pcretest is supposed to handle patterns and data of any length, by
152        extending its buffers when necessary. It was getting this wrong when the
153        buffer for a data line had to be extended.
154    
155    21. Added PCRE_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF which is like ANY, but matches only CR, LF, or
156        CRLF as a newline sequence.
157    
158    22. Code for handling Unicode properties in pcre_dfa_exec() wasn't being cut
159        out by #ifdef SUPPORT_UCP. This did no harm, as it could never be used, but
160        I have nevertheless tidied it up.
161    
162    23. Added some casts to kill warnings from HP-UX ia64 compiler.
163    
164    24. Added a man page for pcre-config.
