1  ChangeLog for PCRE  ChangeLog for PCRE
2  ------------------  ------------------
3    
4  Version 7.4 10-Sep-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    2.  Negative specials like \S did not work in character classes in UTF-8 mode.
11        Characters greater than 255 were excluded from the class instead of being
12        included.
13    
14    3.  The same bug as (2) above applied to negated POSIX classes such as
15        [:^space:].
16    
17    4.  PCRECPP_STATIC was referenced in pcrecpp_internal.h, but nowhere was it
18        defined or documented. It seems to have been a typo for PCRE_STATIC, so
19        I have changed it.
20    
21    5.  The construct (?&) was not diagnosed as a syntax error (it referenced the
22        first named subpattern) and a construct such as (?&a) would reference the
23        first named subpattern whose name started with "a" (in other words, the
24        length check was missing).
25    
26    
27    Version 7.4 21-Sep-07
28  ---------------------  ---------------------

30  1.  Change 7.3/28 was implemented for classes by looking at the bitmap. This  1.  Change 7.3/28 was implemented for classes by looking at the bitmap. This
31      means that a class such as [\s] counted as "explicit reference to CR or      means that a class such as [\s] counted as "explicit reference to CR or
32      LF". That isn't really right - the whole point of the change was to try to      LF". That isn't really right - the whole point of the change was to try to
33      help when there was an actual mention of one of the two characters. So now      help when there was an actual mention of one of the two characters. So now
34      the change happens only if \r or \n (or a literal CR or LF) character is      the change happens only if \r or \n (or a literal CR or LF) character is
35      encountered.      encountered.
36    
37  2.  The 32-bit options word was also used for 6 internal flags, but the numbers  2.  The 32-bit options word was also used for 6 internal flags, but the numbers
38      of both had grown to the point where there were only 3 bits left.      of both had grown to the point where there were only 3 bits left.
39      Fortunately, there was spare space in the data structure, and so I have      Fortunately, there was spare space in the data structure, and so I have

41      bits.      bits.
42    
43  3.  The appearance of (?J) at the start of a pattern set the DUPNAMES option,  3.  The appearance of (?J) at the start of a pattern set the DUPNAMES option,
44      but did not set the internal JCHANGED flag - either of these is enough to      but did not set the internal JCHANGED flag - either of these is enough to

47      start sets both bits.      start sets both bits.
48    
49    4.  Added options (at build time, compile time, exec time) to change \R from
50        matching any Unicode line ending sequence to just matching CR, LF, or CRLF.
51    
52    5.  doc/pcresyntax.html was missing from the distribution.
53    
54    6.  Put back the definition of PCRE_ERROR_NULLWSLIMIT, for backward
55        compatibility, even though it is no longer used.
56    
57    7.  Added macro for snprintf to pcrecpp_unittest.cc and also for strtoll and
58        strtoull to pcrecpp.cc to select the available functions in WIN32 when the
59        windows.h file is present (where different names are used). [This was
60        reversed later after testing - see 16 below.]
61    
62    8.  Changed all #include <config.h> to #include "config.h". There were also
63        some further <pcre.h> cases that I changed to "pcre.h".
64    
65    9.  When pcregrep was used with the --colour option, it missed the line ending
66        sequence off the lines that it output.
67    
68    10. It was pointed out to me that arrays of string pointers cause lots of
69        relocations when a shared library is dynamically loaded. A technique of
70        using a single long string with a table of offsets can drastically reduce
71        these. I have refactored PCRE in four places to do this. The result is
72        dramatic:
73    
74          Originally:                          290
75          After changing UCP table:            187
76          After changing error message table:   43
77          After changing table of "verbs"       36
78          After changing table of Posix names   22
79    
80        Thanks to the folks working on Gregex for glib for this insight.
81    
82    11. --disable-stack-for-recursion caused compiling to fail unless -enable-
83        unicode-properties was also set.
84    
85    12. Updated the tests so that they work when \R is defaulted to ANYCRLF.
86    
87    13. Added checks for ANY and ANYCRLF to pcrecpp.cc where it previously
88        checked only for CRLF.
89    
90    14. Added casts to pcretest.c to avoid compiler warnings.
91    
92    15. Added Craig's patch to various pcrecpp modules to avoid compiler warnings.
93    
94    16. Added Craig's patch to remove the WINDOWS_H tests, that were not working,
95        and instead check for _strtoi64 explicitly, and avoid the use of snprintf()
96        entirely. This removes changes made in 7 above.
97    
98    17. The CMake files have been updated, and there is now more information about
99        building with CMake in the NON-UNIX-USE document.
