1  ChangeLog for PCRE  ChangeLog for PCRE
2  ------------------  ------------------
3    
4  Version 8.0 02 Jul-08  Version 7.9 xx-xxx-09
5    ---------------------
6    
7    1.  When building with support for bzlib/zlib (pcregrep) and/or readline
8        (pcretest), all targets were linked against these libraries. This included
9        libpcre, libpcreposix, and libpcrecpp, even though they do not use these
10        libraries. This caused unwanted dependencies to be created. This problem
11        has been fixed, and now only pcregrep is linked with bzlib/zlib and only
12        pcretest is linked with readline.
13    
14    2.  The "typedef int BOOL" in pcre_internal.h that was included inside the
15        "#ifndef FALSE" condition by an earlier change (probably 7.8/18) has been
16        moved outside it again, because FALSE and TRUE are already defined in AIX,
17        but BOOL is not.
18    
19    3.  The pcre_config() function was treating the PCRE_MATCH_LIMIT and
20        PCRE_MATCH_LIMIT_RETURSION values as ints, when they should be long ints.
21    
22    4.  The pcregrep documentation said spaces were inserted as well as colons (or
23        hyphens) following file names and line numbers when outputting matching
24        lines. This is not true; no spaces are inserted. I have also clarified the
25        wording for the --colour (or --color) option.
26    
27    5.  When --colour was used with -o, the list of matching strings was not
28        coloured; this is different to GNU grep, so I have changed it to be the
29        same.

46      a group with a zero qualifier. The result of the study could be incorrect,      a group with a zero qualifier. The result of the study could be incorrect,
47      or the function might crash, depending on the pattern.      or the function might crash, depending on the pattern.
48    
49  4.  Caseless matching was not working for non-ASCII characters in back  4.  Caseless matching was not working for non-ASCII characters in back
50      references. For example, /(\x{de})\1/8i was not matching \x{de}\x{fe}.      references. For example, /(\x{de})\1/8i was not matching \x{de}\x{fe}.

54      a UTF-8 string, even in non-UTF-8 mode. Now it generates a single byte in      a UTF-8 string, even in non-UTF-8 mode. Now it generates a single byte in
55      non-UTF-8 mode. If the value is greater than 255, it gives a warning about      non-UTF-8 mode. If the value is greater than 255, it gives a warning about
56      truncation.      truncation.
57    
58  6.  Minor bugfix in pcrecpp.cc (change "" == ... to NULL == ...).  6.  Minor bugfix in pcrecpp.cc (change "" == ... to NULL == ...).
59    
60    7.  Added two (int) casts to pcregrep when printing the difference of two
61        pointers, in case they are 64-bit values.
62    
63    8.  Added comments about Mac OS X stack usage to the pcrestack man page and to
64        test 2 if it fails.
65    
66    9.  Added PCRE_CALL_CONVENTION just before the names of all exported functions,
67        and a #define of that name to empty if it is not externally set. This is to
68        allow users of MSVC to set it if necessary.
69    
70    10. The PCRE_EXP_DEFN macro which precedes exported functions was missing from
71        the convenience functions in the pcre_get.c source file.
72    
73    11. An option change at the start of a pattern that had top-level alternatives
74        could cause overwriting and/or a crash. This command provoked a crash in
75        some environments:
76    
77          printf "/(?i)[\xc3\xa9\xc3\xbd]|[\xc3\xa9\xc3\xbdA]/8\n" | pcretest
78    
79        This potential security problem was recorded as CVE-2008-2371.
80    
81    12. For a pattern where the match had to start at the beginning or immediately
82        after a newline (e.g /.*anything/ without the DOTALL flag), pcre_exec() and
83        pcre_dfa_exec() could read past the end of the passed subject if there was
84        no match. To help with detecting such bugs (e.g. with valgrind), I modified
85        pcretest so that it places the subject at the end of its malloc-ed buffer.
86    
87    13. The change to pcretest in 12 above threw up a couple more cases when pcre_
88        exec() might read past the end of the data buffer in UTF-8 mode.
89    
90    14. A similar bug to 7.3/2 existed when the PCRE_FIRSTLINE option was set and
91        the data contained the byte 0x85 as part of a UTF-8 character within its
92        first line. This applied both to normal and DFA matching.
93    
94    15. Lazy qualifiers were not working in some cases in UTF-8 mode. For example,
95        /^[^d]*?$/8 failed to match "abc".
96    
97    16. Added a missing copyright notice to pcrecpp_internal.h.
98    
99    17. Make it more clear in the documentation that values returned from
100        pcre_exec() in ovector are byte offsets, not character counts.
101    
102    18. Tidied a few places to stop certain compilers from issuing warnings.
103    
104    19. Updated the Virtual Pascal + BCC files to compile the latest v7.7, as
105        supplied by Stefan Weber. I made a further small update for 7.8 because
106        there is a change of source arrangements: the pcre_searchfuncs.c module is
107        replaced by pcre_ucd.c.
