26    
27      (a) (?-n) (where n is a string of digits) is a relative subroutine or      (a) (?-n) (where n is a string of digits) is a relative subroutine or
28          recursion call. It refers to the nth most recently opened parentheses.          recursion call. It refers to the nth most recently opened parentheses.

30      (b) (?+n) is also a relative subroutine call; it refers to the nth next      (b) (?+n) is also a relative subroutine call; it refers to the nth next

34          relatively, for example, (?(-2)... or (?(+3)...          relatively, for example, (?(-2)... or (?(+3)...
35    
36        (d) \K resets the start of the current match so that everything before
37            is not part of it.
38    
39        (e) \k{name} is synonymous with \k<name> and \k'name' (.NET compatible).
40    
41        (f) \g{name} is another synonym - part of Perl 5.10's unification of
42            reference syntax.
43    
44        (g) (?| introduces a group in which the numbering of parentheses in each
45            alternative starts with the same number.
46    
47        (h) \h, \H, \v, and \V match horizontal and vertical whitespace.
48    
49     7. Added two new calls to pcre_fullinfo(): PCRE_INFO_OKPARTIAL and
50        PCRE_INFO_JCHANGED.
51    
52     8. A pattern such as  (.*(.)?)*  caused pcre_exec() to fail by either not
53        terminating or by crashing. Diagnosed by Viktor Griph; it was in the code
54        for detecting groups that can match an empty string.
55    
56     9. A pattern with a very large number of alternatives (more than several
57        hundred) was running out of internal workspace during the pre-compile
58        phase, where pcre_compile() figures out how much memory will be needed. A
59        bit of new cunning has reduced the workspace needed for groups with
60        alternatives. The 1000-alternative test pattern now uses 12 bytes of
61        workspace instead of running out of the 4096 that are available.
62    
63    10. Inserted some missing (unsigned int) casts to get rid of compiler warnings.
