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.

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.
