2  ------------------  ------------------
3    
4  Version 8.10 03 May-2010  Version 8.13 16-Aug-2011
5    ------------------------
6    
7    1.  The Unicode data tables have been updated to Unicode 6.0.0.
8    
9    2.  Two minor typos in pcre_internal.h have been fixed.
10    
11    3.  Added #include <string.h> to pcre_scanner_unittest.cc, pcrecpp.cc, and
12        pcrecpp_unittest.cc. They are needed for strcmp(), memset(), and strchr()
13        in some environments (e.g. Solaris 10/SPARC using Sun Studio 12U2).
14    
15    4.  There were a number of related bugs in the code for matching backrefences
16        caselessly in UTF-8 mode when codes for the characters concerned were
17        different numbers of bytes. For example, U+023A and U+2C65 are an upper
18        and lower case pair, using 2 and 3 bytes, respectively. The main bugs were:
19        (a) A reference to 3 copies of a 2-byte code matched only 2 of a 3-byte
20        code. (b) A reference to 2 copies of a 3-byte code would not match 2 of a
21        2-byte code at the end of the subject (it thought there wasn't enough data
22        left).
23    
24    5.  Comprehensive information about what went wrong is now returned by
25        pcre_exec() and pcre_dfa_exec() when the UTF-8 string check fails, as long
26        as the output vector has at least 2 elements. The offset of the start of
27        the failing character and a reason code are placed in the vector.
28    
29    6.  When the UTF-8 string check fails for pcre_compile(), the offset that is
30        now returned is for the first byte of the failing character, instead of the
31        last byte inspected. This is an incompatible change, but I hope it is small
32        enough not to be a problem. It makes the returned offset consistent with
33        pcre_exec() and pcre_dfa_exec().
34    
35    7.  pcretest now gives a text phrase as well as the error number when
36        pcre_exec() or pcre_dfa_exec() fails; if the error is a UTF-8 check
37        failure, the offset and reason code are output.
38    
39    8.  When \R was used with a maximizing quantifier it failed to skip backwards
40        over a \r\n pair if the subsequent match failed. Instead, it just skipped
41        back over a single character (\n). This seems wrong (because it treated the
42        two characters as a single entity when going forwards), conflicts with the
43        documentation that \R is equivalent to (?>\r\n|\n|...etc), and makes the
44        behaviour of \R* different to (\R)*, which also seems wrong. The behaviour
45        has been changed.
46    
47    9.  Some internal refactoring has changed the processing so that the handling
48        of the PCRE_CASELESS and PCRE_MULTILINE options is done entirely at compile
49        time (the PCRE_DOTALL option was changed this way some time ago: version
50        7.7 change 16). This has made it possible to abolish the OP_OPT op code,
51        which was always a bit of a fudge. It also means that there is one less
52        argument for the match() function, which reduces its stack requirements
53        slightly. This change also fixes an incompatibility with Perl: the pattern
54        (?i:([^b]))(?1) should not match "ab", but previously PCRE gave a match.
55    
56    10. More internal refactoring has drastically reduced the number of recursive
57        calls to match() for possessively repeated groups such as (abc)++ when
58        using pcre_exec().
59    
60    11. While implementing 10, a number of bugs in the handling of groups were
61        discovered and fixed:
62    
63        (?<=(a)+) was not diagnosed as invalid (non-fixed-length lookbehind).
64        (a|)*(?1) gave a compile-time internal error.
65        ((a|)+)+  did not notice that the outer group could match an empty string.
66        (^a|^)+   was not marked as anchored.
67        (.*a|.*)+ was not marked as matching at start or after a newline.
68    
69    12. Yet more internal refactoring has removed another argument from the match()
70        function. Special calls to this function are now indicated by setting a
71        value in a variable in the "match data" data block.
72    
73    13. Be more explicit in pcre_study() instead of relying on "default" for
74        opcodes that mean there is no starting character; this means that when new
75        ones are added and accidentally left out of pcre_study(), testing should
76        pick them up.
77    
78    14. The -s option of pcretest has been documented for ages as being an old
79        synonym of -m (show memory usage). I have changed it to mean "force study
80        for every regex", that is, assume /S for every regex. This is similar to -i
81        and -d etc. It's slightly incompatible, but I'm hoping nobody is still
82        using it. It makes it easier to run collections of tests with and without
83        study enabled, and thereby test pcre_study() more easily. All the standard
84        tests are now run with and without -s (but some patterns can be marked as
85        "never study" - see 20 below).
86    
87    15. When (*ACCEPT) was used in a subpattern that was called recursively, the
88        restoration of the capturing data to the outer values was not happening
89        correctly.
90    
91    16. If a recursively called subpattern ended with (*ACCEPT) and matched an
92        empty string, and PCRE_NOTEMPTY was set, pcre_exec() thought the whole
93        pattern had matched an empty string, and so incorrectly returned a no
94        match.
95    
96    17. There was optimizing code for the last branch of non-capturing parentheses,
97        and also for the obeyed branch of a conditional subexpression, which used
98        tail recursion to cut down on stack usage. Unfortunately, now that there is
99        the possibility of (*THEN) occurring in these branches, tail recursion is
100        no longer possible because the return has to be checked for (*THEN). These
101        two optimizations have therefore been removed.
102    
103    18. If a pattern containing \R was studied, it was assumed that \R always
104        matched two bytes, thus causing the minimum subject length to be
105        incorrectly computed because \R can also match just one byte.
106    
107    19. If a pattern containing (*ACCEPT) was studied, the minimum subject length
108        was incorrectly computed.
109    
110    20. If /S is present twice on a test pattern in pcretest input, it now
111        *disables* studying, thereby overriding the use of -s on the command line
112        (see 14 above). This is necessary for one or two tests to keep the output
113        identical in both cases.
114    
115    21. When (*ACCEPT) was used in an assertion that matched an empty string and
116        PCRE_NOTEMPTY was set, PCRE applied the non-empty test to the assertion.
117    
118    22. When an atomic group that contained a capturing parenthesis was
119        successfully matched, but the branch in which it appeared failed, the
120        capturing was not being forgotten if a higher numbered group was later
121        captured. For example, /(?>(a))b|(a)c/ when matching "ac" set capturing
122        group 1 to "a", when in fact it should be unset. This applied to multi-
123        branched capturing and non-capturing groups, repeated or not, and also to
124        positive assertions (capturing in negative assertions does not happen
125        in PCRE) and also to nested atomic groups.
126    
127    23. Add the ++ qualifier feature to pcretest, to show the remainder of the
128        subject after a captured substring, to make it easier to tell which of a
129        number of identical substrings has been captured.
130    
131    24. The way atomic groups are processed by pcre_exec() has been changed so that
132        if they are repeated, backtracking one repetition now resets captured
133        values correctly. For example, if ((?>(a+)b)+aabab) is matched against
134        "aaaabaaabaabab" the value of captured group 2 is now correctly recorded as
135        "aaa". Previously, it would have been "a". As part of this code
136        refactoring, the way recursive calls are handled has also been changed.
137    
138    25. If an assertion condition captured any substrings, they were not passed
139        back unless some other capturing happened later. For example, if
140        (?(?=(a))a) was matched against "a", no capturing was returned.
141    
142    26. When studying a pattern that contained subroutine calls or assertions,
143        the code for finding the minimum length of a possible match was handling
144        direct recursions such as (xxx(?1)|yyy) but not mutual recursions (where
145        group 1 called group 2 while simultaneously a separate group 2 called group
146        1). A stack overflow occurred in this case. I have fixed this by limiting
147        the recursion depth to 10.
148    
149    27. Updated RunTest.bat in the distribution to the version supplied by Tom
150        Fortmann. This supports explicit test numbers on the command line, and has
151        argument validation and error reporting.
152    
153    28. An instance of \X with an unlimited repeat could fail if at any point the
154        first character it looked at was a mark character.
155    
156    29. Some minor code refactoring concerning Unicode properties and scripts
157        should reduce the stack requirement of match() slightly.
158    
159    30. Added the '=' option to pcretest to check the setting of unused capturing
160        slots at the end of the pattern, which are documented as being -1, but are
161        not included in the return count.
162    
163    31. If \k was not followed by a braced, angle-bracketed, or quoted name, PCRE
164        compiled something random. Now it gives a compile-time error (as does
165        Perl).
166    
167    32. A *MARK encountered during the processing of a positive assertion is now
168        recorded and passed back (compatible with Perl).
169    
170    33. If --only-matching or --colour was set on a pcregrep call whose pattern
171        had alternative anchored branches, the search for a second match in a line
172        was done as if at the line start. Thus, for example, /^01|^02/ incorrectly
173        matched the line "0102" twice. The same bug affected patterns that started
174        with a backwards assertion. For example /\b01|\b02/ also matched "0102"
175        twice.
176    
177    34. Previously, PCRE did not allow quantification of assertions. However, Perl
178        does, and because of capturing effects, quantifying parenthesized
179        assertions may at times be useful. Quantifiers are now allowed for
180        parenthesized assertions.
181    
182    35. A minor code tidy in pcre_compile() when checking options for \R usage.
183    
184    36. \g was being checked for fancy things in a character class, when it should
185        just be a literal "g".
186    
187    37. PCRE was rejecting [:a[:digit:]] whereas Perl was not. It seems that the
188        appearance of a nested POSIX class supersedes an apparent external class.
189        For example, [:a[:digit:]b:] matches "a", "b", ":", or a digit. Also,
190        unescaped square brackets may also appear as part of class names. For
191        example, [:a[:abc]b:] gives unknown class "[:abc]b:]". PCRE now behaves
192        more like Perl.
193    
194    38. PCRE was giving an error for \N with a braced quantifier such as {1,} (this
195        was because it thought it was \N{name}, which is not supported).
196    
197    39. Add minix to OS list not supporting the -S option in pcretest.
198    
199    40. PCRE tries to detect cases of infinite recursion at compile time, but it
200        cannot analyze patterns in sufficient detail to catch mutual recursions
201        such as ((?1))((?2)). There is now a runtime test that gives an error if a
202        subgroup is called recursively as a subpattern for a second time at the
203        same position in the subject string. In previous releases this might have
204        been caught by the recursion limit, or it might have run out of stack.
205    
206    41. A pattern such as /(?(R)a+|(?R)b)/ is quite safe, as the recursion can
207        happen only once. PCRE was, however incorrectly giving a compile time error
208        "recursive call could loop indefinitely" because it cannot analyze the
209        pattern in sufficient detail. The compile time test no longer happens when
210        PCRE is compiling a conditional subpattern, but actual runaway loops are
211        now caught at runtime (see 40 above).
212    
213    42. It seems that Perl allows any characters other than a closing parenthesis
214        to be part of the NAME in (*MARK:NAME) and other backtracking verbs. PCRE
215        has been changed to be the same.
216    
217    43. Updated configure.ac to put in more quoting round AC_LANG_PROGRAM etc. so
218        as not to get warnings when autogen.sh is called. Also changed
219        AC_PROG_LIBTOOL (deprecated) to LT_INIT (the current macro).
220    
221    44. To help people who use pcregrep to scan files containing exceedingly long
222        lines, the following changes have been made:
223    
224        (a) The default value of the buffer size parameter has been increased from
225            8K to 20K. (The actual buffer used is three times this size.)
226    
227        (b) The default can be changed by ./configure --with-pcregrep-bufsize when
228            PCRE is built.
229    
230        (c) A --buffer-size=n option has been added to pcregrep, to allow the size
231            to be set at run time.
232    
233        (d) Numerical values in pcregrep options can be followed by K or M, for
234            example --buffer-size=50K.
235    
236        (e) If a line being scanned overflows pcregrep's buffer, an error is now
237            given and the return code is set to 2.
238    
239    45. Add a pointer to the latest mark to the callout data block.
240    
241    46. The pattern /.(*F)/, when applied to "abc" with PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD, gave a
242        partial match of an empty string instead of no match. This was specific to
243        the use of ".".
244    
245    47. The pattern /f.*/8s, when applied to "for" with PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD, gave a
246        complete match instead of a partial match. This bug was dependent on both
247        the PCRE_UTF8 and PCRE_DOTALL options being set.
248    
249    48. For a pattern such as /\babc|\bdef/ pcre_study() was failing to set up the
250        starting byte set, because \b was not being ignored.
251    
252    
253    Version 8.12 15-Jan-2011
254    ------------------------
255    
256    1.  Fixed some typos in the markup of the man pages, and wrote a script that
257        checks for such things as part of the documentation building process.
258    
259    2.  On a big-endian 64-bit system, pcregrep did not correctly process the
260        --match-limit and --recursion-limit options (added for 8.11). In
261        particular, this made one of the standard tests fail. (The integer value
262        went into the wrong half of a long int.)
263    
264    3.  If the --colour option was given to pcregrep with -v (invert match), it
265        did strange things, either producing crazy output, or crashing. It should,
266        of course, ignore a request for colour when reporting lines that do not
267        match.
268    
269    4.  Another pcregrep bug caused similar problems if --colour was specified with
270        -M (multiline) and the pattern match finished with a line ending.
271    
272    5.  In pcregrep, when a pattern that ended with a literal newline sequence was
273        matched in multiline mode, the following line was shown as part of the
274        match. This seems wrong, so I have changed it.
275    
276    6.  Another pcregrep bug in multiline mode, when --colour was specified, caused
277        the check for further matches in the same line (so they could be coloured)
278        to overrun the end of the current line. If another match was found, it was
279        incorrectly shown (and then shown again when found in the next line).
280    
281    7.  If pcregrep was compiled under Windows, there was a reference to the
282        function pcregrep_exit() before it was defined. I am assuming this was
283        the cause of the "error C2371: 'pcregrep_exit' : redefinition;" that was
284        reported by a user. I've moved the definition above the reference.
285    
286    
287    Version 8.11 10-Dec-2010
288    ------------------------
289    
290    1.  (*THEN) was not working properly if there were untried alternatives prior
291        to it in the current branch. For example, in ((a|b)(*THEN)(*F)|c..) it
292        backtracked to try for "b" instead of moving to the next alternative branch
293        at the same level (in this case, to look for "c"). The Perl documentation
294        is clear that when (*THEN) is backtracked onto, it goes to the "next
295        alternative in the innermost enclosing group".
296    
297    2.  (*COMMIT) was not overriding (*THEN), as it does in Perl. In a pattern
298        such as   (A(*COMMIT)B(*THEN)C|D)  any failure after matching A should
299        result in overall failure. Similarly, (*COMMIT) now overrides (*PRUNE) and
300        (*SKIP), (*SKIP) overrides (*PRUNE) and (*THEN), and (*PRUNE) overrides
301        (*THEN).
302    
303    3.  If \s appeared in a character class, it removed the VT character from
304        the class, even if it had been included by some previous item, for example
305        in [\x00-\xff\s]. (This was a bug related to the fact that VT is not part
306        of \s, but is part of the POSIX "space" class.)
307    
308    4.  A partial match never returns an empty string (because you can always
309        match an empty string at the end of the subject); however the checking for
310        an empty string was starting at the "start of match" point. This has been
311        changed to the "earliest inspected character" point, because the returned
312        data for a partial match starts at this character. This means that, for
313        example, /(?<=abc)def/ gives a partial match for the subject "abc"
314        (previously it gave "no match").
315    
316    5.  Changes have been made to the way PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD affects the matching
317        of $, \z, \Z, \b, and \B. If the match point is at the end of the string,
318        previously a full match would be given. However, setting PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD
319        has an implication that the given string is incomplete (because a partial
320        match is preferred over a full match). For this reason, these items now
321        give a partial match in this situation. [Aside: previously, the one case
322        /t\b/ matched against "cat" with PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD set did return a partial
323        match rather than a full match, which was wrong by the old rules, but is
324        now correct.]
325    
326    6.  There was a bug in the handling of #-introduced comments, recognized when
327        PCRE_EXTENDED is set, when PCRE_NEWLINE_ANY and PCRE_UTF8 were also set.
328        If a UTF-8 multi-byte character included the byte 0x85 (e.g. +U0445, whose
329        UTF-8 encoding is 0xd1,0x85), this was misinterpreted as a newline when
330        scanning for the end of the comment. (*Character* 0x85 is an "any" newline,
331        but *byte* 0x85 is not, in UTF-8 mode). This bug was present in several
332        places in pcre_compile().
333    
334    7.  Related to (6) above, when pcre_compile() was skipping #-introduced
335        comments when looking ahead for named forward references to subpatterns,
336        the only newline sequence it recognized was NL. It now handles newlines
337        according to the set newline convention.
338    
339    8.  SunOS4 doesn't have strerror() or strtoul(); pcregrep dealt with the
340        former, but used strtoul(), whereas pcretest avoided strtoul() but did not
341        cater for a lack of strerror(). These oversights have been fixed.
342    
343    9.  Added --match-limit and --recursion-limit to pcregrep.
344    
345    10. Added two casts needed to build with Visual Studio when NO_RECURSE is set.
346    
347    11. When the -o option was used, pcregrep was setting a return code of 1, even
348        when matches were found, and --line-buffered was not being honoured.
349    
350    12. Added an optional parentheses number to the -o and --only-matching options
351        of pcregrep.
352    
353    13. Imitating Perl's /g action for multiple matches is tricky when the pattern
354        can match an empty string. The code to do it in pcretest and pcredemo
355        needed fixing:
356    
357        (a) When the newline convention was "crlf", pcretest got it wrong, skipping
358            only one byte after an empty string match just before CRLF (this case
359            just got forgotten; "any" and "anycrlf" were OK).
360    
361        (b) The pcretest code also had a bug, causing it to loop forever in UTF-8
362            mode when an empty string match preceded an ASCII character followed by
363            a non-ASCII character. (The code for advancing by one character rather
364            than one byte was nonsense.)
365    
366        (c) The pcredemo.c sample program did not have any code at all to handle
367            the cases when CRLF is a valid newline sequence.
368    
369    14. Neither pcre_exec() nor pcre_dfa_exec() was checking that the value given
370        as a starting offset was within the subject string. There is now a new
371        error, PCRE_ERROR_BADOFFSET, which is returned if the starting offset is
372        negative or greater than the length of the string. In order to test this,
373        pcretest is extended to allow the setting of negative starting offsets.
374    
375    15. In both pcre_exec() and pcre_dfa_exec() the code for checking that the
376        starting offset points to the beginning of a UTF-8 character was
377        unnecessarily clumsy. I tidied it up.
378    
379    16. Added PCRE_ERROR_SHORTUTF8 to make it possible to distinguish between a
380        bad UTF-8 sequence and one that is incomplete when using PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD.
381    
382    17. Nobody had reported that the --include_dir option, which was added in
383        release 7.7 should have been called --include-dir (hyphen, not underscore)
384        for compatibility with GNU grep. I have changed it to --include-dir, but
385        left --include_dir as an undocumented synonym, and the same for
386        --exclude-dir, though that is not available in GNU grep, at least as of
387        release 2.5.4.
388    
389    18. At a user's suggestion, the macros GETCHAR and friends (which pick up UTF-8
390        characters from a string of bytes) have been redefined so as not to use
391        loops, in order to improve performance in some environments. At the same
392        time, I abstracted some of the common code into auxiliary macros to save
393        repetition (this should not affect the compiled code).
394    
395    19. If \c was followed by a multibyte UTF-8 character, bad things happened. A
396        compile-time error is now given if \c is not followed by an ASCII
397        character, that is, a byte less than 128. (In EBCDIC mode, the code is
398        different, and any byte value is allowed.)
399    
400    20. Recognize (*NO_START_OPT) at the start of a pattern to set the PCRE_NO_
401        START_OPTIMIZE option, which is now allowed at compile time - but just
402        passed through to pcre_exec() or pcre_dfa_exec(). This makes it available
403        to pcregrep and other applications that have no direct access to PCRE
404        options. The new /Y option in pcretest sets this option when calling
405        pcre_compile().
406    
407    21. Change 18 of release 8.01 broke the use of named subpatterns for recursive
408        back references. Groups containing recursive back references were forced to
409        be atomic by that change, but in the case of named groups, the amount of
410        memory required was incorrectly computed, leading to "Failed: internal
411        error: code overflow". This has been fixed.
412    
413    22. Some patches to pcre_stringpiece.h, pcre_stringpiece_unittest.cc, and
414        pcretest.c, to avoid build problems in some Borland environments.

452    
453    10. Added --line-buffered to pcregrep.
454    
455    11. In UTF-8 mode, if a pattern that was compiled with PCRE_CASELESS was
456        studied, and the match started with a letter with a code point greater than
457        127 whose first byte was different to the first byte of the other case of
458        the letter, the other case of this starting letter was not recognized
459        (#976).
460    
461    12. If a pattern that was studied started with a repeated Unicode property
462        test, for example, \p{Nd}+, there was the theoretical possibility of
463        setting up an incorrect bitmap of starting bytes, but fortunately it could
464        not have actually happened in practice until change 8 above was made (it
465        added property types that matched character-matching opcodes).
466    
467    13. pcre_study() now recognizes \h, \v, and \R when constructing a bit map of
468        possible starting bytes for non-anchored patterns.
469    
470    14. Extended the "auto-possessify" feature of pcre_compile(). It now recognizes
471        \R, and also a number of cases that involve Unicode properties, both
472        explicit and implicit when PCRE_UCP is set.
473    
474    15. If a repeated Unicode property match (e.g. \p{Lu}*) was used with non-UTF-8
475        input, it could crash or give wrong results if characters with values
476        greater than 0xc0 were present in the subject string. (Detail: it assumed
477        UTF-8 input when processing these items.)
478    
479    16. Added a lot of (int) casts to avoid compiler warnings in systems where
480        size_t is 64-bit (#991).
481    
482    17. Added a check for running out of memory when PCRE is compiled with
483        --disable-stack-for-recursion (#990).
484    
485    18. If the last data line in a file for pcretest does not have a newline on
486        the end, a newline was missing in the output.
487    
488    19. The default pcre_chartables.c file recognizes only ASCII characters (values
489        less than 128) in its various bitmaps. However, there is a facility for
490        generating tables according to the current locale when PCRE is compiled. It
491        turns out that in some environments, 0x85 and 0xa0, which are Unicode space
492        characters, are recognized by isspace() and therefore were getting set in
493        these tables, and indeed these tables seem to approximate to ISO 8859. This
494        caused a problem in UTF-8 mode when pcre_study() was used to create a list
495        of bytes that can start a match. For \s, it was including 0x85 and 0xa0,
496        which of course cannot start UTF-8 characters. I have changed the code so
497        that only real ASCII characters (less than 128) and the correct starting
498        bytes for UTF-8 encodings are set for characters greater than 127 when in
499        UTF-8 mode. (When PCRE_UCP is set - see 9 above - the code is different
500        altogether.)
501    
502    20. Added the /T option to pcretest so as to be able to run tests with non-
503        standard character tables, thus making it possible to include the tests
504        used for 19 above in the standard set of tests.
505    
506    21. A pattern such as (?&t)(?#()(?(DEFINE)(?<t>a)) which has a forward
507        reference to a subpattern the other side of a comment that contains an
508        opening parenthesis caused either an internal compiling error, or a
509        reference to the wrong subpattern.
