1  ChangeLog for PCRE  ChangeLog for PCRE
2  ------------------  ------------------
3    
4  Version 7.9 xx-xxx-09  Version 8.00 ??-???-??
5    ----------------------
6    
7    1.  The table for translating pcre_compile() error codes into POSIX error codes
8        was out-of-date, and there was no check on the pcre_compile() error code
9        being within the table. This could lead to an OK return being given in
10        error.
11    
12    2.  Changed the call to open a subject file in pcregrep from fopen(pathname,
13        "r") to fopen(pathname, "rb"), which fixed a problem with some of the tests
14        in a Windows environment.
15    
16    3.  The pcregrep --count option prints the count for each file even when it is
17        zero, as does GNU grep. However, pcregrep was also printing all files when
18        --files-with-matches was added. Now, when both options are given, it prints
19        counts only for those files that have at least one match. (GNU grep just
20        prints the file name in this circumstance, but including the count seems
21        more useful - otherwise, why use --count?) Also ensured that the
22        combination -clh just lists non-zero counts, with no names.
23    
24    4.  The long form of the pcregrep -F option was incorrectly implemented as
25        --fixed_strings instead of --fixed-strings. This is an incompatible change,
26        but it seems right to fix it, and I didn't think it was worth preserving
27        the old behaviour.
28    
29    5.  The command line items --regex=pattern and --regexp=pattern were not
30        recognized by pcregrep, which required --regex pattern or --regexp pattern
31        (with a space rather than an '='). The man page documented the '=' forms,
32        which are compatible with GNU grep; these now work.
33    
34    6.  No libpcreposix.pc file was created for pkg-config; there was just
35        libpcre.pc and libpcrecpp.pc. The omission has been rectified.
36    
37    7.  Added #ifndef SUPPORT_UCP into the pcre_ucd.c module, to reduce its size
38        when UCP support is not needed, by modifying the Python script that
39        generates it from Unicode data files. This should not matter if the module
40        is correctly used as a library, but I received one complaint about 50K of
41        unwanted data. My guess is that the person linked everything into his
42        program rather than using a library. Anyway, it does no harm.
43    
44    8.  A pattern such as /\x{123}{2,2}+/8 was incorrectly compiled; the trigger
45        was a minimum greater than 1 for a wide character in a possessive
46        repetition. Chaos could result.
47    
48    9.  The restrictions on what a pattern can contain when partial matching is
49        requested for pcre_exec() have been removed. All patterns can now be
50        partially matched by this function. In addition, if there are at least two
51        slots in the offset vector, the offsets of the first-encountered partial
52        match are set in them when PCRE_ERROR_PARTIAL is returned.

133    
134    21. If PCRE_ERROR_MATCHLIMIT occurred during a recursion, there was a memory
135        leak if the size of the offset vector was greater than 30. When the vector
136        is smaller, the saved offsets during recursion go onto a local stack
137        vector, but for larger vectors malloc() is used. It was failing to free
138        when the recursion yielded PCRE_ERROR_MATCH_LIMIT (or any other "abnormal"
139        error, in fact).
140    
141    22. There was a missing #ifdef SUPPORT_UTF8 round one of the variables in the
142        heapframe that is used only when UTF-8 support is enabled. This caused no
143        problem, but was untidy.
144    
145    23. Steven Van Ingelgem's patch to CMakeLists.txt to change the name
146        CMAKE_BINARY_DIR to PROJECT_BINARY_DIR so that it works when PCRE is
147        included within another project.
148    
149    24. Steven Van Ingelgem's patches to add more options to the CMake support,
150        slightly modified by me:
151    
152          (a) PCRE_BUILD_TESTS can be set OFF not to build the tests, including
153              not building pcregrep.
154    
155          (b) PCRE_BUILD_PCREGREP can be see OFF not to build pcregrep, but only
156              if PCRE_BUILD_TESTS is also set OFF, because the tests use pcregrep.
157    
158    25. Forward references, both numeric and by name, in patterns that made use of
159        duplicate group numbers, could behave incorrectly or give incorrect errors,
160        because when scanning forward to find the reference group, PCRE was not
161        taking into account the duplicate group numbers. A pattern such as
162        ^X(?3)(a)(?|(b)|(q))(Y) is an example.
163    
164    26. Changed a few more instances of "const unsigned char *" to USPTR, making
165        the feature of a custom pointer more persuasive (as requested by a user).
166    
167    27. Wrapped the definitions of fileno and isatty for Windows, which appear in
168        pcretest.c, inside #ifndefs, because it seems they are sometimes already
169        pre-defined.
170    
171    28. Added support for (*UTF8) at the start of a pattern.
172    
173    29. Arrange for flags added by the "release type" setting in CMake to be shown
174        in the configuration summary.
