2  ------------------  ------------------

4  Version 7.3 17-Aug-07  Version 7.5 12-Nov-07
5    ---------------------
6    
7    1.  Applied a patch from Craig: "This patch makes it possible to 'ignore'
8        values in parens when parsing an RE using the C++ wrapper."
9    
10    
11    Version 7.4 21-Sep-07
12    ---------------------
13    
14    1.  Change 7.3/28 was implemented for classes by looking at the bitmap. This
15        means that a class such as [\s] counted as "explicit reference to CR or
16        LF". That isn't really right - the whole point of the change was to try to
17        help when there was an actual mention of one of the two characters. So now
18        the change happens only if \r or \n (or a literal CR or LF) character is
19        encountered.
20    
21    2.  The 32-bit options word was also used for 6 internal flags, but the numbers
22        of both had grown to the point where there were only 3 bits left.
23        Fortunately, there was spare space in the data structure, and so I have
24        moved the internal flags into a new 16-bit field to free up more option
25        bits.
26    
27    3.  The appearance of (?J) at the start of a pattern set the DUPNAMES option,
28        but did not set the internal JCHANGED flag - either of these is enough to
29        control the way the "get" function works - but the PCRE_INFO_JCHANGED
30        facility is supposed to tell if (?J) was ever used, so now (?J) at the
31        start sets both bits.
32    
33    4.  Added options (at build time, compile time, exec time) to change \R from
34        matching any Unicode line ending sequence to just matching CR, LF, or CRLF.
35    
36    5.  doc/pcresyntax.html was missing from the distribution.
37    
38    6.  Put back the definition of PCRE_ERROR_NULLWSLIMIT, for backward
39        compatibility, even though it is no longer used.
40    
41    7.  Added macro for snprintf to pcrecpp_unittest.cc and also for strtoll and
42        strtoull to pcrecpp.cc to select the available functions in WIN32 when the
43        windows.h file is present (where different names are used). [This was
44        reversed later after testing - see 16 below.]
45    
46    8.  Changed all #include <config.h> to #include "config.h". There were also
47        some further <pcre.h> cases that I changed to "pcre.h".
48    
49    9.  When pcregrep was used with the --colour option, it missed the line ending
50        sequence off the lines that it output.
51    
52    10. It was pointed out to me that arrays of string pointers cause lots of
53        relocations when a shared library is dynamically loaded. A technique of
54        using a single long string with a table of offsets can drastically reduce
55        these. I have refactored PCRE in four places to do this. The result is
56        dramatic:
57    
58          Originally:                          290
59          After changing UCP table:            187
60          After changing error message table:   43
61          After changing table of "verbs"       36
62          After changing table of Posix names   22
63    
64        Thanks to the folks working on Gregex for glib for this insight.
65    
66    11. --disable-stack-for-recursion caused compiling to fail unless -enable-
67        unicode-properties was also set.
68    
69    12. Updated the tests so that they work when \R is defaulted to ANYCRLF.
70    
71    13. Added checks for ANY and ANYCRLF to pcrecpp.cc where it previously
72        checked only for CRLF.
73    
74    14. Added casts to pcretest.c to avoid compiler warnings.
75    
76    15. Added Craig's patch to various pcrecpp modules to avoid compiler warnings.
77    
78    16. Added Craig's patch to remove the WINDOWS_H tests, that were not working,
79        and instead check for _strtoi64 explicitly, and avoid the use of snprintf()
80        entirely. This removes changes made in 7 above.
81    
82    17. The CMake files have been updated, and there is now more information about
83        building with CMake in the NON-UNIX-USE document.

229    
230    26. Patterns such as [\P{Yi}A] which include \p or \P and just one other
231        character were causing crashes (broken optimization).
232    
233    27. Patterns such as (\P{Yi}*\277)* (group with possible zero repeat containing
234        \p or \P) caused a compile-time loop.
235    
236    28. More problems have arisen in unanchored patterns when CRLF is a valid line
237        break. For example, the unstudied pattern [\r\n]A does not match the string
238        "\r\nA" because change 7.0/46 below moves the current point on by two
239        characters after failing to match at the start. However, the pattern \nA
240        *does* match, because it doesn't start till \n, and if [\r\n]A is studied,
241        the same is true. There doesn't seem any very clean way out of this, but
242        what I have chosen to do makes the common cases work: PCRE now takes note
243        of whether there can be an explicit match for \r or \n anywhere in the
244        pattern, and if so, 7.0/46 no longer applies. As part of this change,
245        there's a new PCRE_INFO_HASCRORLF option for finding out whether a compiled
246        pattern has explicit CR or LF references.
247    
248    29. Added (*CR) etc for changing newline setting at start of pattern.
