189    . By default, the sequence \R in a pattern matches any Unicode line ending
190      sequence. This is independent of the option specifying what PCRE considers to
191      be the end of a line (see above). However, the caller of PCRE can restrict \R
192      to match only CR, LF, or CRLF. You can make this the default by adding
193      --enable-bsr-anycrlf to the "configure" command (bsr = "backslash R").

261    . It is possible to compile pcregrep to use libz and/or libbz2, in order to
262      read .gz and .bz2 files (respectively), by specifying one or both of

264      --enable-pcregrep-libz

267      Of course, the relevant libraries must be installed on your system.

269    . It is possible to compile pcretest so that it links with the libreadline
270      library, by specifying
271    
272      --enable-pcretest-libreadline
273    
274      If this is done, when pcretest's input is from a terminal, it reads it using
275      the readline() function. This provides line-editing and history facilities.
276      Note that libreadline is GPL-licenced, so if you distribute a binary of
277      pcretest linked in this way, there may be licensing issues.
