1  ChangeLog for PCRE  ChangeLog for PCRE
2  ------------------  ------------------
4  Version 7.3 16-Aug-07  Version 7.4 10-Sep-07
5    ---------------------
7    1.  Change 7.3/28 was implemented for classes by looking at the bitmap. This
8        means that a class such as [\s] counted as "explicit reference to CR or
9        LF". That isn't really right - the whole point of the change was to try to
10        help when there was an actual mention of one of the two characters. So now
11        the change happens only if \r or \n (or a literal CR or LF) character is
12        encountered.
14    2.  The 32-bit options word was also used for 6 internal flags, but the numbers
15        of both had grown to the point where there were only 3 bits left.
16        Fortunately, there was spare space in the data structure, and so I have
17        moved the internal flags into a new 16-bit field to free up more option
18        bits.
20    3.  The appearance of (?J) at the start of a pattern set the DUPNAMES option,
21        but did not set the internal JCHANGED flag - either of these is enough to
22        control the way the "get" function works - but the PCRE_INFO_JCHANGED
23        facility is supposed to tell if (?J) was ever used, so now (?J) at the
24        start sets both bits.
26    4.  Added options (at build time, compile time, exec time) to change \R from
27        matching any Unicode line ending sequence to just matching CR, LF, or CRLF.
29    5.  doc/pcresyntax.html was missing from the distribution.

172      characters were involved (for example /\S{2}/8g with "A\x{a3}BC").      characters were involved (for example /\S{2}/8g with "A\x{a3}BC").
174    25. Using pcregrep in multiline, inverted mode (-Mv) caused it to loop.
176    26. Patterns such as [\P{Yi}A] which include \p or \P and just one other
177        character were causing crashes (broken optimization).
179    27. Patterns such as (\P{Yi}*\277)* (group with possible zero repeat containing
180        \p or \P) caused a compile-time loop.
182    28. More problems have arisen in unanchored patterns when CRLF is a valid line
183        break. For example, the unstudied pattern [\r\n]A does not match the string
184        "\r\nA" because change 7.0/46 below moves the current point on by two
185        characters after failing to match at the start. However, the pattern \nA
186        *does* match, because it doesn't start till \n, and if [\r\n]A is studied,
187        the same is true. There doesn't seem any very clean way out of this, but
188        what I have chosen to do makes the common cases work: PCRE now takes note
189        of whether there can be an explicit match for \r or \n anywhere in the
190        pattern, and if so, 7.0/46 no longer applies. As part of this change,
191        there's a new PCRE_INFO_HASCRORLF option for finding out whether a compiled
192        pattern has explicit CR or LF references.
194    29. Added (*CR) etc for changing newline setting at start of pattern.
