1  ChangeLog for PCRE  ChangeLog for PCRE
2  ------------------  ------------------
4    Version 8.32
5    ------------
7    1.  Improved JIT compiler optimizations for first character search and single
8        character iterators.
10    2.  Supporting IBM XL C compilers for PPC architectures in the JIT compiler.
11        Patch by Daniel Richard G.
14    Version 8.31 06-July-2012
15    -------------------------
17    1.  Fixing a wrong JIT test case and some compiler warnings.
19    2.  Removed a bashism from the RunTest script.
21    3.  Add a cast to pcre_exec.c to fix the warning "unary minus operator applied
22        to unsigned type, result still unsigned" that was given by an MS compiler
23        on encountering the code "-sizeof(xxx)".
25    4.  Partial matching support is added to the JIT compiler.
27    5.  Fixed several bugs concerned with partial matching of items that consist
28        of more than one character:
30        (a) /^(..)\1/ did not partially match "aba" because checking references was
31            done on an "all or nothing" basis. This also applied to repeated
32            references.
34        (b) \R did not give a hard partial match if \r was found at the end of the
35            subject.
37        (c) \X did not give a hard partial match after matching one or more
38            characters at the end of the subject.
40        (d) When newline was set to CRLF, a pattern such as /a$/ did not recognize
41            a partial match for the string "\r".
43        (e) When newline was set to CRLF, the metacharacter "." did not recognize
44            a partial match for a CR character at the end of the subject string.
46    6.  If JIT is requested using /S++ or -s++ (instead of just /S+ or -s+) when
47        running pcretest, the text "(JIT)" added to the output whenever JIT is
48        actually used to run the match.
50    7.  Individual JIT compile options can be set in pcretest by following -s+[+]
51        or /S+[+] with a digit between 1 and 7.
53    8.  OP_NOT now supports any UTF character not just single-byte ones.
55    9.  (*MARK) control verb is now supported by the JIT compiler.
57    10. The command "./RunTest list" lists the available tests without actually
58        running any of them. (Because I keep forgetting what they all are.)
62    12. Applied a (slightly modified) user-supplied patch that improves performance
63        when the heap is used for recursion (compiled with --disable-stack-for-
64        recursion). Instead of malloc and free for each heap frame each time a
65        logical recursion happens, frames are retained on a chain and re-used where
66        possible. This sometimes gives as much as 30% improvement.
68    13. As documented, (*COMMIT) is now confined to within a recursive subpattern
69        call.
71    14. As documented, (*COMMIT) is now confined to within a positive assertion.
73    15. It is now possible to link pcretest with libedit as an alternative to
74        libreadline.
76    16. (*COMMIT) control verb is now supported by the JIT compiler.
78    17. The Unicode data tables have been updated to Unicode 6.1.0.
80    18. Added --file-list option to pcregrep.
82    19. Added binary file support to pcregrep, including the -a, --binary-files,
83        -I, and --text options.
85    20. The madvise function is renamed for posix_madvise for QNX compatibility
86        reasons. Fixed by Giuseppe D'Angelo.
88    21. Fixed a bug for backward assertions with REVERSE 0 in the JIT compiler.
90    22. Changed the option for creating symbolic links for 16-bit man pages from
91        -s to -sf so that re-installing does not cause issues.
93    23. Support PCRE_NO_START_OPTIMIZE in JIT as (*MARK) support requires it.
95    24. Fixed a very old bug in pcretest that caused errors with restarted DFA
96        matches in certain environments (the workspace was not being correctly
97        retained). Also added to pcre_dfa_exec() a simple plausibility check on
98        some of the workspace data at the beginning of a restart.
100    25. \s*\R was auto-possessifying the \s* when it should not, whereas \S*\R
101        was not doing so when it should - probably a typo introduced by SVN 528
102        (change 8.10/14).
104    26. When PCRE_UCP was not set, \w+\x{c4} was incorrectly auto-possessifying the
105        \w+ when the character tables indicated that \x{c4} was a word character.
106        There were several related cases, all because the tests for doing a table
107        lookup were testing for characters less than 127 instead of 255.
109    27. If a pattern contains capturing parentheses that are not used in a match,
110        their slots in the ovector are set to -1. For those that are higher than
111        any matched groups, this happens at the end of processing. In the case when
112        there were back references that the ovector was too small to contain
113        (causing temporary malloc'd memory to be used during matching), and the
114        highest capturing number was not used, memory off the end of the ovector
115        was incorrectly being set to -1. (It was using the size of the temporary
116        memory instead of the true size.)
118    28. To catch bugs like 27 using valgrind, when pcretest is asked to specify an
119        ovector size, it uses memory at the end of the block that it has got.
121    29. Check for an overlong MARK name and give an error at compile time. The
122        limit is 255 for the 8-bit library and 65535 for the 16-bit library.
124    30. JIT compiler update.
126    31. JIT is now supported on jailbroken iOS devices. Thanks for Ruiger
127        Rill for the patch.
129    32. Put spaces around SLJIT_PRINT_D in the JIT compiler. Required by CXX11.
131    33. Variable renamings in the PCRE-JIT compiler. No functionality change.
133    34. Fixed typos in pcregrep: in two places there was SUPPORT_LIBZ2 instead of
134        SUPPORT_LIBBZ2. This caused a build problem when bzip2 but not gzip (zlib)
135        was enabled.
137    35. Improve JIT code generation for greedy plus quantifier.
139    36. When /((?:a?)*)*c/ or /((?>a?)*)*c/ was matched against "aac", it set group
140        1 to "aa" instead of to an empty string. The bug affected repeated groups
141        that could potentially match an empty string.
143    37. Optimizing single character iterators in JIT.
145    38. Wide characters specified with \uxxxx in JavaScript mode are now subject to
146        the same checks as \x{...} characters in non-JavaScript mode. Specifically,
147        codepoints that are too big for the mode are faulted, and in a UTF mode,
148        disallowed codepoints are also faulted.
150    39. If PCRE was compiled with UTF support, in three places in the DFA
151        matcher there was code that should only have been obeyed in UTF mode, but
152        was being obeyed unconditionally. In 8-bit mode this could cause incorrect
153        processing when bytes with values greater than 127 were present. In 16-bit
154        mode the bug would be provoked by values in the range 0xfc00 to 0xdc00. In
155        both cases the values are those that cannot be the first data item in a UTF
156        character. The three items that might have provoked this were recursions,
157        possessively repeated groups, and atomic groups.
159    40. Ensure that libpcre is explicitly listed in the link commands for pcretest
160        and pcregrep, because some OS require shared objects to be explicitly
161        passed to ld, causing the link step to fail if they are not.
163    41. There were two incorrect #ifdefs in pcre_study.c, meaning that, in 16-bit
164        mode, patterns that started with \h* or \R* might be incorrectly matched.
