1  ChangeLog for PCRE  ChangeLog for PCRE
2  ------------------  ------------------
3    
4  Version 7.1 12-Mar-07  Version 7.2 05-June-07
5    ---------------------
6    
7     1. If the fr_FR locale cannot be found for test 3, try the "french" locale,
8        which is apparently normally available under Windows.
9    
10     2. Re-jig the pcregrep tests with different newline settings in an attempt
11        to make them independent of the local environment's newline setting.
12    
13     3. Add code to configure.ac to remove -g from the CFLAGS default settings.
14    
15     4. Some of the "internals" tests were previously cut out when the link size
16        was not 2, because the output contained actual offsets. The recent new
17        "Z" feature of pcretest means that these can be cut out, making the tests
18        usable with all link sizes.
19    
20     5. Implemented Stan Switzer's goto replacement for longjmp() when not using
21        stack recursion. This gives a massive performance boost under BSD, but just
22        a small improvement under Linux. However, it saves one field in the frame
23        in all cases.
24    
25     6. Added more features from the forthcoming Perl 5.10:
26    
27        (a) (?-n) (where n is a string of digits) is a relative subroutine or
28            recursion call. It refers to the nth most recently opened parentheses.
29    
30        (b) (?+n) is also a relative subroutine call; it refers to the nth next
31            to be opened parentheses.
32    
33        (c) Conditions that refer to capturing parentheses can be specified
34            relatively, for example, (?(-2)... or (?(+3)...
35    
36        (d) \K resets the start of the current match so that everything before
37            is not part of it.
38    
39        (e) \k{name} is synonymous with \k<name> and \k'name' (.NET compatible).
40    
41        (f) \g{name} is another synonym - part of Perl 5.10's unification of
42            reference syntax.
43    
44     7. Added two new calls to pcre_fullinfo(): PCRE_INFO_OKPARTIAL and
45        PCRE_INFO_JCHANGED.
46    
47     8. A pattern such as  (.*(.)?)*  caused pcre_exec() to fail by either not
48        terminating or by crashing. Diagnosed by Viktor Griph; it was in the code
49        for detecting groups that can match an empty string.
50    
51     9. A pattern with a very large number of alternatives (more than several
52        hundred) was running out of internal workspace during the pre-compile
53        phase, where pcre_compile() figures out how much memory will be needed. A
54        bit of new cunning has reduced the workspace needed for groups with
55        alternatives. The 1000-alternative test pattern now uses 12 bytes of
56        workspace instead of running out of the 4096 that are available.

172      segmentation fault instead of returning the appropriate error message.      segmentation fault instead of returning the appropriate error message.
173    
174    15. In multiline mode when the newline sequence was set to "any", the pattern
175        ^$ would give a match between the \r and \n of a subject such as "A\r\nB".
176        This doesn't seem right; it now treats the CRLF combination as the line
177        ending, and so does not match in that case. It's only a pattern such as ^$
178        that would hit this one: something like ^ABC$ would have failed after \r
179        and then tried again after \r\n.
180    
181    16. Changed the comparison command for RunGrepTest from "diff -u" to "diff -ub"
182        in an attempt to make files that differ only in their line terminators
183        compare equal. This works on Linux.
184    
185    17. Under certain error circumstances pcregrep might try to free random memory
186        as it exited. This is now fixed, thanks to valgrind.
187    
188    19. In pcretest, if the pattern /(?m)^$/g<any> was matched against the string
189        "abc\r\n\r\n", it found an unwanted second match after the second \r. This
190        was because its rules for how to advance for /g after matching an empty
191        string at the end of a line did not allow for this case. They now check for
192        it specially.
193    
194    20. pcretest is supposed to handle patterns and data of any length, by
195        extending its buffers when necessary. It was getting this wrong when the
196        buffer for a data line had to be extended.
197    
198    21. Added PCRE_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF which is like ANY, but matches only CR, LF, or
199        CRLF as a newline sequence.
200    
201    22. Code for handling Unicode properties in pcre_dfa_exec() wasn't being cut
202        out by #ifdef SUPPORT_UCP. This did no harm, as it could never be used, but
203        I have nevertheless tidied it up.
204    
205    23. Added some casts to kill warnings from HP-UX ia64 compiler.
206    
207    24. Added a man page for pcre-config.
