2001-07-29  Alain Magloire

	David Clissold, wrote:
	a small bug in the GNU grep 2.4.2, which may have gone unnoticed
	because it only causes a failure if building on a system with large
	files enabled (e.g. an "off_t" is a "long long" rather than a "long").
	savedir() takes on off_t argument, but in grepdir() the parameter
	is cast to an (unsigned).  Well, if an off_t is larger than an int,
	the value gets truncated.  This would not normally have an effect on a
	little-endian platform (unless the file is >2GB), but on a big-endian
	system it will always fail.  The external effect is that
	"grep -r foo dir_name" fails with ENOMEM (from malloc() within

	* grep/src/grep.c (grepdir): Remove the (unsigned) cast when calling
	Patch from David Clissold.

2001-07-29  Alain Magloire

	* grep/doc/grep.texi: In Bugs report use {n,m} for consistency.

2001-02-17  Paul Eggert

	Stop trying to support hosts that have nonstandard declarations for

	patterns in one shot.
	(EGexecute): If falling to GNU regex for the matching, loop in the

2001-02-17  Alain Malgoire

	* doc/grep.texi: Document the new options and the new behaviour
	back-references are local.  Use excerpt from Karl Berry regex

	* bootstrap/Makefile.try: Added xstrtoumax.o xstrtoul.o hard-local.o

2001-02-17  Alain Magloire

	From Guglielmo 'bond' Bondioni :
	The bug was that using a multi line file that contained REs (one per
	line), backreferences in the REs were considered global (to the file)
	and not local (to the line).
	That is, \1 in line n refers to the first \(.\) in the whole file,
	rather than in the line itself.

	From Tapani Tarvainen :
	# Re: grep -e '\(a\)\1' -e '\(b\)\1'
	That's not the way it should work: multiple -e arguments
	should be treated as independent patterns and back references
	should not refer to previous ones.

	From Paul Eggert :
	GNU grep currently does not issue
	diagnostics for the following two cases, both of which are erroneous:
	grep -e '[' -e ']'
	grep '[
	POSIX requires a diagnostic in both cases because '[' is not a valid
	regular expression.

	To overcome those problems, grep no longer pass the concatenate
	patterns to GNU regex but rather compile each patterns separately
	and keep the result in an array.

	* src/search.c (patterns): New global variable; a structure array
	holding the compiled patterns.
	Declare function prototypes to minimize error.
	(dfa, kswset, regexbuf, regs): Removed, no longer static globals, but
	rather fields in patterns[] structure per motif.
	(Fcompile): Alloc an entry in patterns[] to hold the regex.
	(Ecompile): Alloc an entry per motif in the patterns[] array.
	(Gcompile): Likewise.
	(EGexecute): Loop through of array of patterns[] for a match.

2001-02-17  Alain Magloire

	From Bernd Strieder :
	# tail -f logfile | grep important | do_something_urgent
	# tail -f logfile | grep important | do_something_taking_very_long
	If grep does full buffering in these cases then the urgent operation
	does not happen as it should in the first case, and in the second case
	time is lost due to waiting for the buffer to be filled.
	This is clearly spoken not grep's fault in the first place, but libc's.
	There is a heuristic in libc that make a stream line-buffered only if a
	terminal is on the other end. This doesn't take care of the cases where
	this connection is somehow indirect.

	* src/grep.c (line_buffered): new option variable.
	(prline): if line_buffered is set fflush() is call.
	(usage): line_buffered new option.
	Input from Paul Eggert, doing setvbuf() may not be portable
	and breaks grep -z.

2001-02-16  Alain Magloire

	Patch from Isamu Hasegawa, for multibyte support.
	This patch prevent kwset_matcher from following problems.
	For example, in SJIS encoding, one character has the codepoint 0x895c.
	So the second byte of the character can match with '\' incorrectly.
	And in eucJP encoding, there are the characters whose codepoints are
	0xa5b9, 0xa5c8.  On the other hand, there is one character whose
	codepoint is 0xb9a5.  So 0xb9a5 can match with 2nd byte of 0xa5b9
	and 1st byte of 0xa5c8.

	* Add check for mbrtowc.
	* src/search.c (check_multibyte_string): new function.
	Support for multibyte string.
	(EGexecute): call check_multibyte_string when kwset is set.
	(Fexecute): call to check_multibyte_string.
	(MBS_SUPPORT): new macro.
	(MB_CUR_MAX): new macro.

2001-02-16  Alain Magloire

	* djgpp/config.bat: Fix for
	* m4/dosfile.m4 (HAVE_DOS_FILE_CONTENTS): Was not set.
	Bugs noted and patched by Juan Manuel Guerrero.

2001-02-16  Alain Magloire

	A much requested feature, the possibility to select
	files when doing recurse :
	# find . -name "*.c" | xargs grep main {}
	# grep --include=*.c main .
	# find . -not -name "*.c" | xargs grep main {}
	# grep --exclude=*.c main .

	* src/grep.c (short_options): -R equivalent to -r.
	(#ifdef) : Fix some inconsistencies in the use of #ifdefs, prefer
	#if defined() wen possible.
	(long_options): Add --color, --include and exclude.
	(Usage): Description of new options.
	(color): Rename color variable to color_option.
	Removed 'always|never|auto' arguments, not necessary for grep.

	* doc/ Document, new options.

2001-02-09  Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.c (long_options): Added equivalent to -r with -R.
	* src/grep.c (usage): added --color and --colour.
	Noted with patch from, H.Merijn Brand and Wichert Akkerman.

2001-02-09  Alain Magloire

	Patch from Ulrich Drepper to provide hilighting.

	* src/grep.c: New option --color.
	(color): New static var.
	(COLOR_OPTION): new constant.
	(grep_color): new static var.
	(prline): Now when color is set prline() will call the current matcher
	to find the offset of the matching string.
	* src/savedir.c: Take advantage of _DIRENT_HAVE_TYPE if supported.
	* src/search.c (EGexecute, Fexecute, Pexecute): Take a new argument
	when doing exact match for the color hiligting.

2000-09-01  Brian Youmans

	* doc/grep.texi: Typo fixes.

2000-08-30  Paul Eggert

	* doc/grep.texi (Usage): Talk about what "grep -r hello *.c"

2000-08-20  Paul Eggert

	Handle range expressions correctly even when they match
	strings with two or more characters.

	* src/dfa.h (CRANGE): New enum value.  Comment fix.

	* src/dfa.c: Include  if HAVE_SETLOCALE.
	Include "hard-locale.h".
	(prtok): Print CRANGE.
	(hard_LC_COLLATE): New static var.
	(lex): Return CRANGE when parsing a character range in a hard locale.
	Don't use strcoll; it's no longer needed and wasn't correct anyway.
	Use unsigned rather than token to hold unsigned chars.
	(addtok): Comment fix.
	(atom): Treat a CRANGE as if it were (.\1), approximately.
	(dfaparse): Initialize hard_LC_COLLATE.

	* src/ (base_sources): Add hard-locale.c, hard-locale.h.

	* src/hard-locale.c, src/hard-locale.h: New files, taken from

2000-08-20  Paul Eggert

	* tests/ (TESTS_ENVIRONMENT): Add LC_ALL=C, since
	some of the tests assume the C locale.

2000-08-16  Paul Eggert

	* src/search.c (Gcompile, Ecompile): -x overrides -w, for
	consistency with fgrep.  Don't assume that sizes fit in 'int'.
	Fix comments to match code.

2000-06-06  Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (grepdir): Don't look at st_dev when testing for
	Mingw32 bug.

2000-06-05  Paul Eggert

	Port to Mingw32, based on suggestions from Christian Groessler

	* src/isdir.c: New file, taken from fileutils.

	* src/ (base_sources): Add isdir.c.

	* src/grep.c (grepfile): Use isdir instead of doing it inline.
	(grepdir): Suppress ancestor check if the directory's inode and device
	are both zero, as that occurs only on Mingw32 which doesn't support
	inode or device.

	* src/system.h (isdir): New decl.
	(is_EISDIR): Depend on HAVE_DIR_EACCES_BUG, not D_OK.
	Use isdir, not access.

2000-06-02  Paul Eggert

	Problen noted by Gerald Stoller 

	* src/grep.c (main): POSIX.2 says that -q overrides -l, which
	in turn overrides the other output options.  Fix grep to
	behave that way.

2000-05-27  Paul Eggert

	Simplify and tune the buffer allocation strategy.  Do not reserve a
	large save area: reserve only enough bytes to hold the residue, plus
	page alignment.  Put a newline sentinel before the buffer, for speed
	when searching backwards for newline.

	* src/grep.c (ubuffer, bufsalloc, PREFERRED_SAVE_FACTOR, page_alloc):
	Remove.  All uses changed.
	(INITIAL_BUFSIZE): New macro.
	(reset, fillbuf): Use simpler buffer allocation strategy.
	(reset): Check for preposterously large pagesize that would cause
	later calculations to overflow.
	(fillbuf): Do not resize buffer if there's room at the end for
	at least one more page.  This greatly increases performance when
	reading from non-regular files that contain no newlines.
	When growing the buffer, double its size instead of using a
	more complicated algorithm.
	(prtext, grep): Speed up by relying on the newline sentinel before the
	start of the buffer.
	(grep): When looking backwards for the last newline in a buffer,
	stop when we hit the residue, since it can't contain a newline.
	This avoids an O(N**2) algorithm when reading binary data from
	a pipe.  Use a sentinel to speed up the backward search for newline.
	(nlscan): Undo previous change; it wasn't needed and just complicates
	and slows down the code a tad.

2000-05-24  Paul Eggert

	Handle very large input counts better. Bug noted by Jim Meyering.

	into a single number.
	(main): Use get_nondigit_option instead of doing the code inline.
	With -A, -B, and -C, optarg is now guaranteed to be nonzero.

2000-04-08  Paul Eggert

	Now that we know that the input is always terminated by a
	newline before the matching algorithms see it, clean up the

2000-04-06  Paul Eggert

	* doc/grep.1, doc/grep.texi, NEWS: Improve the explanation of
	locale-dependent behavior of range expressions.  Mention
	LC_COLLATE, since this affects range expressions.

2000-03-21  H.Merijn Brand

	* src/ added pgrep and new macro
	* src/search.c: new functions Pcompile() and Pexecute()
	to support PCRE.  Update matcher[] array for pgrep.
	* src/grep.c: new short and long option --pcre and -P.
	usage() updated.

2000-03-21  Bastiaan Stougie

	Improvement of the -m or --max-count option. Now works for NUM > 1 and
	prints trailing context for the last matching line.

	* src/grep.c
	(after_last_match): Is a new off_t variable that replaces inputhwm
	to retain the correct input offset even after a call to fillbuf. Note
	that after_last_match has a different meaning than inputhwm:
	it always points to the offset in the input of the first byte after
	the last matching line, and is 0 if no matching line has been found
	(grep): Print trailing context after the NUMth match when the -m NUM
	option is used.
	(grep): Added comment. Should have been commented already.
	(grepbuf): Now updates outleft correctly. This fixes the bug that the
	-m NUM option did not stop after NUM lines for NUM greater than 1.
	(grepbuf, prtext): Now update after_last_match instead of inputhwm.
	(fillbuf): No longer updates inputhwm.
	(prpending): When outputting trailing context of the max_count-th
        matching line, stop at the first matching line.
	(grepfile): Seek to after_last_match or eof, depending on the values
        of outleft and bufmapped.
	(usage): added the -m or --max-count option to the help message.
	* doc/grep.texi, doc/grep.1: Document the change of the -m option.

2000-03-17  Paul Eggert

	Add new -m or --max-count option, based on a suggestion by
	Bastiaan Stougie.

	* doc/grep.texi, doc/grep.1: Document it.
	* src/grep.c (short_options, long_options, main): Add it.
	(inputhwm): New variable.
	(fillbuf, prtext, grepbuf): Set it.
	(bufmapped): Now a macro (defined to zero) if HAVE_MMAP is not defined.
	(max_count, outleft): New variables.
	(prtext, grepbuf, grep): Don't output more than outleft lines.
	(grepfile): If grepping standard input, seek to the limit of what
	we've read before exiting.  This fixes a bug with mmapped input,
	and is needed for proper -m support.
	(main): Exit immediately if -m 0 is specified.

2000-03-08  Alain Magloire

	* version 2.4.2

2000-03-07  Paul Eggert

	regex.c wasn't being passed through ansi2knr on pre-ANSI hosts.
	(ac_use_included_regex): Fix typo in warning.
	* src/ (EXTRA_DIST): Remove regex.c, as the LIBOBJS
	workaround means that automake now puts regex.c into DIST_COMMON.

2000-02-25  Alain Magloire

	* po/*.po: update of the PO files.

2000-02-22  Eli Zaretskii

	* doc/grep.1:  Two small glitches(typos).

2000-02-18  Eli Zaretskii

	* djgpp/ (prefix, INSTALL): Use /dev/env/DJDIR instead

2000-01-30 Alain Magloire

	* doc/grep.1:  corrected typo.
	Noted by Ruslan Ermilov.

2000-01-30 Alain Magloire

	* vms/ Better compiler auto-detection; information for builds
	on pre-OpenVMS 7.x systems; general overhaul.
	* src/getpagesize.h: Reinstate support for different pagesizes on
	VAX and Alpha. Work around problem with DEC C compiler.
	* src/vms_fab.c: Cast to some assigments; fixed typo argcp vs. argp.

2000-01-30  Paul Eggert

        * src/grep.c (main): Update copyright notice.

2000-01-28  Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.c (usage):  The example "%s -i 'hello.*world' could
	lead to confusion when progname is 'fgrep.
	Noted by Akim Demaille.

	* Reenable, jm_INCLUDE_REGEX() since we now
	track GNU lib C.
	* src/ EXTRA_DIST new macros with regex.c regex.h.
	Requested By Ulrich Drepper.

2000-01-25  Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (grep): If the final byte of an input file is not
	a newline, grep now silently supplies one.
	* doc/grep.texi, NEWS: Likewise.

2000-01-25  Paul Eggert

	* NEWS, doc/grep.1, doc/grep.texi: Add -I option.
	* src/grep.c (short_options, usage, main): Likewise.

	* doc/grep.texi: Fix some incorrect references to ASCII.

2000-01-23  Paul Eggert

	* src/regex.c (GET_UNSIGNED_NUMBER): Allow only ASCII digits.
	* src/dfa.c (ISASCIIDIGIT): New macro.
	(lex): Use it instead of ISDIGIT.

2000-01-23  Paul Eggert

	The bug is that regular expression ranges like [a-z] compare raw
	byte codes to the range boundaries, whereas POSIX says that they
	should use the current collating sequence instead.  For example,
	in Solaris 7 with LC_ALL=en_US, the command
	echo x | grep '[ -~]'
	outputs 'x', but it shouldn't output anything since ' ' and '~'
	sort before all letters in that locale.

	* src/regex.c (compile_range): When matching a character
	range, use the current collating sequence, as POSIX requires.
	* src/dfa.c (lex): Likewise.

2000-01-20  Alain Magloire

	* tests/ (dist-hook): Added new rule to make sure
	that the shell scripts have the right permissions.
	* src/posix/ (EXTRA_DIST): added regex.h in the

2000-01-18  Alain Magloire

	* Rectification the initial patch to add --binary-file option
	was done by Ruslan Ermilov.

2000-01-17  Paul Eggert

	Sync with sources of fileutils 4.0n, tar 1.13.17, glibc 2.1.3a1.
	Convert to ANSI C prototypes (using ansi2knr for backwards
	compatibility), as this makes it easier to sync.

	* (AC_OBJEXT): Spell in a funny way, to work around
	a bug in automake 1.4 with ansi2knr.
	(LIBOBJS): Add assignment so that .o files in LIBOBJS are also built
	via the ANSI2KNR-filtering rules.
	(AC_OUTPUT): Add src/posix/Makefile.

	Upgrade to latest version from fileutils 4.0n.

	* src/getopt.c, src/getopt.h, src/getopt1.c: Upgrade to latest
	version from tar 1.13.17.

	* src/obstack.c, src/obstack.h, src/regex.c, src/regex.h:
	Upgrade to glibc 2.1.3 alpha 1, with K&R C portability fix.

2000-01-04  Paul Eggert

	* savedir.c (savedir): Don't store past the end of an array if
	name_size is zero and the directory is empty.
	Reported by Dima Barsky .

1999-12-03  Alain Magloire

1999-11-18  Paul Eggert

	* m4/largefile.m4 (AC_SYS_LARGEFILE_FLAGS): Work around a
	problem with the QNX 4.25 shell, which doesn't propagate exit
	status of failed commands inside shell assignments.

	(not_text): Remove static variable, undoing latest change.
	(grep): Likewise.

	* doc/grep.texi: Tighten up the text, and fix some minor
	spelling and usage errors.  Use @enumerate rather than @table
	@samp, since it's better for Q&A format.  Add cross

1999-11-01 Alain Magloire

	* src/search.c: Use the more portable [[:alnum:]]
	to define a word instead of Ascii dependent [0-9A-Za-z]
	* src/grep.c: make not_text global to not display text when
	the context switches -A/-B/-C are use on binary files.
	* make grep-2.3g available for testing.
	* drop support for --without-included-regex.
	This was generating bogus bug reports, since many GNU/Linux
	users have different version of glibc.  And glibc maintainers
	decided to drop k&r support.

1999-11-01 Arnold D. Robbins

	* regex.c (init_syntax_once): move below definition of
	ISALNUM etc., then use ISALNUM to init the table, so that

	no newlines.

1999-10-21  Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (usage): Give example.  Clarify -F.

	* acconfig.h (ssize_t): New #undef.

	* (AC_CHECK_TYPE): Add ssize_t.

	* src/grep.c (PREFERRED_SAVE_FACTOR): New macro.
	(reset): If the buffer has already been allocated, set bufsalloc to
	be bufalloc / PREFERRED_SAVE_FACTOR.  This avoids problems when
	bufsalloc == bufalloc (possible after reading a large binary file).
	(reset): Use PREFERRED_SAVE_FACTOR instead of magic constant.
	Do not set bufbeg; nobody uses it.
	Always set buflim.
	Check for lseek error.
	Use SEEK_CUR, not a magic constant.
	(fillbuf): Return an error indication, not a count.
	All callers changed.
	Do not assume ssize_t fits in int.
	Use PREFERRED_SAVE_FACTOR instead of magic constant.
	Clean up mmap code.
	Do not attempt to mmap zero bytes.
	Check for lseek error.
	Use SEEK_SET, not a magic constant.
	Work correctly if read is interrupted.
	(grepfile): Work correctly if open or close is interrupted.

	* src/system.h (SEEK_SET, SEEK_CUR): New macros.

1999-10-02 Alain Magloire

	* src/regex.[ch]: upgrade from GNU lib C source tree.

	* make beta 2.3f available.

1999-10-02  Paul Eggert

	* NEWS: egrep is now equivalent to `grep -E'.
	The lower bound of an interval is not optional.
	You can specify a matcher multiple types without error.
	-u and -U are now allowed on non-DOS hosts, and have no effect.
	* doc/grep.texi: Likewise.
	* doc/grep.1: Likewise.
	Fix some troff bugs that prevented `groff' from rendering the page.

	* src/egrepmat.c, src/fgrepmat.c, src/grepmat.c (default_matcher):
	(matcher): Add.
	* src/grep.h (default_matcher): Remove.
	(matcher): Now exported from ?grepmat.c, not grep.c.

	* src/dfa.c (lex): If { would start an invalid interval specification,
        treat it as a normal character.
        Remove (broken) support for {,M} meaning {0,M}.
        Diagnose bogus intervals like {1,0}.
        (closure): maxrep is now -1 to indicate no limit, not zero;
        zero is a valid value for maxrep, meaning an upper bound of zero.

	* src/grep.c (short_options): New constant.
	(long_options, main): -u and -U are now supported on Unix,
	with no effect.
	(matcher): Removed; now defined by ?grepmat.c.
	(install_matcher): Renamed from setmatcher.
	(setmatcher): New function.
	(usage): Report new, more uniform option scheme.
	(main): Do not initialize matcher; ?grepmat.c now does this.
	Rely on setmatcher to catch matcher conflicts.
	Default matcher is "grep".

	* src/search.c (matchers):
	Remove "posix-egrep" matcher; no longer needed.
	(Ecompile): Likewise.
	The egrep matcher now has POSIX behavior.

	* tests/bre.tests: grep '\{' is no longer an error.
	Fix test for interval too large, and enable it.
	* tests/ere.tests: grep -E {1 is no longer an error
	Likewise for a{1, a{1a, a{1a}, a{1,x}.

1999-09-22  Paul Eggert

	* largefile.m4 (AC_SYS_LARGEFILE_FLAGS): Work around GCC
	2.95.1 bug with HP-UX 10.20.

1999-09-12  Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (fillbuf): Fix typo: we sometimes reported
	arithmetic overflow even when there wasn't any.

1999-09-12  Paul Eggert

	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Add memmove.

	* src/system.h (S_ISREG): New macro.
	(memmove): Define if ! defined HAVE_MEMMOVE && ! defined memmove,
	not if !defined STDC_HEADERS.  This is needed for SunOS 4.1.4,
	which defines STDC_HEADERS but lacks memmove.

	* src/grep.c (bufoffset): Needed even if !defined HAVE_MMAP.
	(reset): Always fstat the file, since we always need its size if it is
	Similarly, get the buffer offset of every regular file.
	Set bufmapped to 0 if the file's initial offset is not a multiple
	of the page size.
	(fillbuf): Calculate an upper bound on how much memory we should
	allocate only for regular files, since we don't know the sizes of
	other files.
	Don't bother to check whether the file offset is a multiple of the page
	size, since we now do that just once in `reset'.
	When an mmapped area would fall past the end of the file, trim it to
	just before instead of giving up immediately and doing a `read';
	that avoids a worst-case behavior that could read half an mmapped file.
	Fix bug when computing offsets on hosts that don't have mmap.

1999-08-27  Paul Eggert

	* src/system.h (memmove): New macro.

	* src/grep.c (page_alloc): Reallocate the old buffer instead
	of having both old and new buffers active simultaneously.
	Remove valloc debugging variant, which no longer applies.

	(fillbuf): Rejigger the buffer allocation mechanism.  The old
	mechanism could allocate more than 10*N bytes for an N-byte
	file, which was excessive.  Check for arithmetic overflow a
	bit more carefully.

1999-08-25  Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (grepdir):
	Don't assume that st_ino and st_dev must be integers;
	POSIX.1 allows them to be floating-point (!).

	* src/vms_fab.h (arr_ptr): `:' -> `;' to fix typo.

1999-08-18  Alain Magloire

	* 2.3e snapshot.

1999-08-18  Alain Magloire

	* src/search.c: On a CRAY J90 system running UNICOS 8.0.
	Compilation of ./src/search.c failed because the declaration of
	the variable "regex":
	  static struct re_pattern_buffer regex;
	conflicted with a previous declaration search.c #includes "system.h",
	which #includes , which declares :
        extern char *regex __((char *_Re, char *_Subject, ...));
	The declaration in search.c is local to that one source file.
	I just changed its name to something less likely to conflict.
	(I called it "regexbuf", but you could pick any name you want.)
	Excerpt email from Dean Kopesky.

1999-08-16  Paul Eggert

	Upgrade large-file support to the version used in tar and

	* (ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS): Define to be empty.
	($(srcdir)/acinclude.m4): New rule.

	(AC_SYS_LARGEFILE): Renamed from AC_LFS, for compatibility
	with what should appear in the next autoconf release.

	* m4/largefile.m4: Renamed from m4/lfs.m4.

	* src/ansi2knr.1, src/ansi2knr.c, config.guess, config.sub:
	New files.  config.guess and config.sub ar needed by the new
	AC_SYS_LARGEFILE.  ansi2knr is needed by AM_C_PROTOTYPES,
	which in turn is needed by the new AC_SYS_LARGEFILE.

1999-08-16  Alain Magloire

	* 2.3d snapshot on ftp server.

1999-07-26  Paul Eggert

Several GNU tools have options to process arbitrary file names, even
file names that contain newline characters.  These include `find
-print0', `perl -0', `sort -z', and `xargs -0'.  It'd be handy if GNU
grep also processed such file names.  Here's a proposed patch to do
this, relative to grep 2.3c.  This patch introduces two options, one
for the data, and one for the file names.  (Sometimes one wants
null-terminated file names in the output, and sometimes one wants to
process lists of null-terminated strings, and these are orthogonal

        * NEWS, doc/grep.texi: New -z or --null-data and -Z or --null options.
        * src/grep.c (long_options, usage, main): Likewise.

        * src/dfa.h (dfasyntax): New eol parameter.
        * src/dfa.c (eolbyte): New var.
        (dfasyntax): Set it from new parameter.
        (lex, dfastat, build_state, dfaexec): Use it instead of '\n'.

        * src/grep.h (eolbyte): New decl.
        * src/grep.c (eolbyte): New var.
        (nlscan, prpending, prtext, grepbuf, grep): Use it instead of '\n'.
        (filename_mask): New var.
        (prline, grepfile): Output NUL separator if filename_mask is zero.
        (grep): Look for '\200' as the hallmark of a binary file, not '\0',
        if -z or --null-data is specified, since it implies that '\0' is
        expected as text.

        * src/search.c (Gcompile, Ecompile): Pass eolbyte to dfasyntax.
        (EGexecute, Fexecute): Use eolbyte instead of '\n'.

1999-06-15 Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.c, doc/grep{1,texi} :
	--revert-match should be --invert-match.
	Correction proposed by Karl Berry.

1999-06-12 Alain Magloire

	* doc/grep.{1,texi}: add description for --with-filename.
	Noted missing by UEBAYASHI Masao.

1999-03-17 Paul Eggert


	* doc/grep.texi: Document GREP_OPTIONS, and the other
	environment variables.  Fix doc for [:blank:], [:cntrl:], [:punct:].

	* src/grep.c (prepend_args, prepend_default_options): New functions.
	(main): Use them to implement GREP_OPTIONS.
	* src/system.h (getenv): New decl.

1999-03-16 Volker Borchert

	* Use case case ... esac for  checking Visual C++.
	When ${CC} contains options it was not recognize.

1999-03-07 Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (usage): Don't report -E, -F, and -G unless we're grep.
	(main): Don't match options -E, -F, and -G unless we're grep.
	Remove after-the-fact check for options -E, -F, and -G, since
	they're no longer needed.

1999-03-05  Eli Zaretskii

	* src/grep.c (main): Print the name of the default matcher instead
	of just "grep".

1999-02-06 Alain Magloire

	* tests/*.awk : Linux users are seeing "Broken Pipe" on make check.
	The problem is that grep does not drain its stdin, thus the previous
	process in the pipeline receives a SIGPIPE.  Other shells are silent
	about this.  There is actually no failure, since the broken pipe is
	expected.  You can work around it by changing the pipeline, so that
	the input is drained, like this:
	status=`echo 'check' | { ${GREP} -E -e pattern >/dev/null 2>&1;
	echo $?; cat >/dev/null; }`; if test $status -ne $errnu then ... fi
	Excerpt email from Andreas Schwab.

1999-02-23 Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.c : Restrict the use of -E, -F, -G
	to only grep driver, Posix behaviour. {f,e}grep
	the matcher is already set. This change may brake
	scripts, warn in NEWS.

	* doc/grep.{1,texi} : -C takes arguments, upgrade manual.

	* beta 2.3a

1999-02-23 Alain Magloire

1999-02-23 Paul Eggert

	Fix porting bug reported by Amakawa Shuhei for SunOS 4.1.4-JL.
	The btowc.c shipped with grep 2.3 is incorrect for Solaris
	2.5.1 and earlier, as it assumes UTF8, which these OSes do not
	support.  Solaris 7 supports btowc, so there's no need to ship
	a substitute for it.  The only questionable case is Solaris
	2.6, which lacks btowc but does support UTF8.  However, 2.6
	supports UTF8 but only as a demonstration (for an English
	locale!); Japanese Solaris 2.6 users typically use EUC, or
	sometimes shift-JIS, but they cannot use UTF8 since Japanese
	UTF8 is not supported.  Hence there's no point to having grep
	substitute a btowc that uses UTF8, as it is either redundant,
	or it will almost invariably have incorrect behavior.

	(AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Add btowc, wctype.
	(AC_REPLACE_FUNCS): Don't replace btowc; our replacement is
	invariably doing the wrong thing anyway, at least on SunOS/Solaris.
	Don't bother to check for wctype in -lw, as we don't support
	wide characters on Solaris 2.5.1 or earlier anyway.

	* bootstrap/Makefile.try (OBJS): Remove btowc.$(OBJEXT).

	* src/btowc.c: Removed; no longer needed.

1999-02-19  Paul Eggert

	* NEWS: Fix typo when talking about the old behavior of
	silently skipping directories; it was grep 2.1, not grep 2.2.

1999-02-15 Alain Magloire

	* bootstrap/Makefile.try : add DJGPP DEFS.
	Done by Elie Zaretsckii.

1999-02-14 Alain Magloire

	From Elie Zaretskii.

	* djgpp/config.bat : -->
	From Elie Zaretskii.

	* src/dosbuf: k&r function parameter.

	* release of 2.3.

1999-02-10 Alain Magloire

	* bootstrap/{Makefile{try,am},REAMDE} : skeleton
	provided for system lacking the tools to autoconfigure.

	* src/{e,f,}grepmat.c: added guard [HAVE_CONFIG_H]

1999-02-10 Alain Magloire


	* m4/regex.m4 : updated.

1999-02-05 Eli Zaretskii

	* m4/gettext.m4 : Support DOS-style D:/foo/bar absolute file

	* aclocal.m4 (DJGPP) : Use $DJ_GPP instead, since changing the
	latter prevents GCC from finding headers and libraries.

	* djgpp/config.bat: Make building from another directory work

	* djgpp/config.sed: Remove redundant command wich edited path
	separator: now done by configure.

	* src/grep.c [O_BINARY]: Add prototype for undossify_input.

	* doc/grep.texi (Introduction): Typo fixed.

1999-02-03 Alain Magloire

	* grep-2.2f beta release.

1999-02-02 Alain Magloire

	* src/btowc.c : protect for wchar.h

1999-01-28 Alain Magloire

	* intl/ Replace .o with .${ac_objext} where necessary.
	Work around a limitation of Visual C++ on Cygwin32.
	* acconfig.h Define `alloca' as `_alloca' when CC=cl.
	This little hack was suggested by Ian Roxborough .
	Patch forwarded by Ben Elliston.

1999-01-28 Alain Magloire

	* PATCHES-AM: New file. A small patch for automake-1.4, use $(sep)
	as the path separator base on @SEP@.
	* PATCHES-AC : updated for autoconf-13.

1999-01-27 Volker Borchert

	* grep.c: fgrep -NUM not working correctly.
	add the argument number to digit_args_val.

1999-01-22 Paul Eggert

	Prevent grep -r from recursing infinitely through directory loops via
	symbolic links.

	* grep.c (struct stats): New type.
	(stats_base): New var.
	(bufstat): Remove; subsumed by stats->stat.
	(reset, fillbuf, grep, grepdir, grepfile): Pass struct stats * arg,
	for directory loop checking; use this instead of the bufstat global.
	All callers changed.
	(grepfile): Stat the file before invoking grepdir.
	(grepdir): Assume that the argument has already been statted.
	No longer a need for a directory size argument, since it
	can be gotten from the struct stats * argument.
	Check for directory loops.
	Create linked list of directories currently being visited,
	to detect loops.

1998-12-29 Kaveh R. Ghazi

	intl/localealias.c: When building grep-2.2e using cc on Irix4,
	I needed the following patch to intl/localealias.c.
	(Its the same patch used by fileutils-4.0.) The patch resolves
	conflicts between char* and unsigned char* in the i18n code.

1998-12-10 Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.c : Typo in contex -->context
	Noted by  Vladimir Michl.

1998-12-01  Alain Magloire

	New files.

	* m4/progtest.m4: proctect '[]' from m4.
	Noted by Eli Z.

	* PATCHES-AC: New file, add the patch for autoconf in the dist.

	* acconfig.h: (HAVE_DOS_FILENAME)

	* TODO: updated.

	* src/search.c: remove obsolete 'gegrep,ggrep,gnugrep'
	matchers. grep no longer depend on argv[0].

	* grep-2.2e beta to test DJGPP port.

1998-11-28  Paul Eggert

	Various portability enhancements:
	- Don't assume that O_BINARY implies DOS.  Use separate
	macros D_OK (for DOS-like directory access) and
	HAVE_DOS_FILE_NAMES (for DOS-like file names).
	- Don't assume that off_t fits into long; it doesn't on Solaris 2.6.
	- Have is_EISDIR set errno properly on hosts with screwed-up EISDIR.
	- Treat ':' specially in DOS file names only if it's the end of a
	drive specifier.
	- Protect against errno < 0.

	* src/grep.c (is_EISDIR): Move defn to system.h.
	(print_offset_sep): New function.
	(fillbuf): Remove redundant test of O_BINARY.
	(totalcc, totalnl): Now of type off_t.
	(prline): Use print_offset_sep to print file offsets.
	(grepfile): Don't set e to EISDIR; that's is_EISDIR's responsibility
	on machines that don't work properly with EISDIR.
	(grepdir): Don't assume ':' means slash on all DOS filenames;
	it means it only in the file prefix.

	* src/system.h (strerror): Check for negative error numbers.
	(is_EISDIR): Depend on D_OK, not O_BINARY.
	(SET_BINARY): Depend on HAVE_SETMODE, not __DJGPP__.
	not O_BINARY.
	(CHAR_BIT): New macro.

	* src/dosbuf.c (struct dos_map):
	pos and add members are now of type off_t.
	(dos_stripped_crs): Now of type off_t.
	(dossified_pos): Now accepts arg and returns value of type off_t.

	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Add setmode.

1998-11-27  Eli Zaretskii

	* djgpp/config.sed: New file, a Sed script to edit configure
	script before running it on DOS/Windows.
	* djgpp/config.bat: Updated to handle and
	po/ on DOS filesystems, and to run config.sed.

1998-11-24  Jim Meyering

	* src/grep.c : Typo s/infalid/invalid/
	Also noted by Stanislav Brabec.

1998-11-24  Eli Zaretskii

	* doc/grep.texi: I found and corrected several typos.
	I believe the GNU standards require the section that describes the
	options to the programs to be called ``Invoking'' or ``Invoking
	''.  This is so users and programs can easily find
	that node in any Info file.  So I changed the name of the
	`Options' chapter to `Invoking', and corrected the
	cross-references accordingly.
	I added some markup to things like file names and options.
	I added some additional index entries where that seemed useful.
	I also corrected some index entries, such as "@cindex [:alnum:]",
	which used a colon in them (the colons confuse Info readers).

1998-11-24  Alain Magloire

	* grep/doc/grep.texi : -h is not use for help.
	Nit spotted by Jim Meyering.

	with limited file system aka DOS.

	* grep-2.2d release for beta.

1998-11-18  Alain Magloire

1998-11-14  Paul Eggert

	* src/grep.c (grepdir): Fix bug: memory freed twice.

	* src/search.c (Gcompile, Ecompile): Don't invoke dfainit,
	since dfacomp does it for us, and if we also do it then we
	leak memory.

1998-11-13  Eli Zaretskii

	* djgpp/config.bat: Rewrite to run the configure script via Bash.
	* djgpp/, djgpp/getconf: New files.

	* src/system.h (IS_SLASH): New macro.
	(is_EISDIR): Define it here for DOS and Windows.

	* src/grep.c (main) [O_BINARY]: Set stdout to binary mode, so the
	EOL formats of the input and output files match, unless stdout is
	the console device.
	(is_EISDIR): Don't define if already defined.  Accept a second
	argument, the file name; all callers changed.
	(grepdir): Don't free `file', inside the loop.  Use IS_SLASH to
	check whether `dir' needs a slash.
	(grepfile): If file is a directory, set e to EISDIR.

1998-11-10  Alain Magloire

	* src/vms_fab.{c,h}: New file for VMS wildcard expansion
	Written by Phillip C. Brisco.

	(grepdir): If -s, suppress errors from trying to read directories.

	* src/grep.1: Fix -q -r -s problems; describe BSD grep better.

	* src/grep.c (main): Update copyright.

	Specify default matcher with default_matcher extern var, not
	DEFAULT_MATCHER macro.  This is more straightforward and means
	we need to compile grep.c just once.

	* src/egrepmat.c, src/fgrepmat.c, src/grepmat.c: New files.

	* src/ (base_sources): New macro.
	(egrep_SOURCES, fgrep_SOURCES, grep_SOURCES): Now consist of
	$(base_sources) plus the single tailoring file.
	(grep_LDADD, egrep_LDADD, fgrep_LDADD): Remove.
	(EXTRA_DIST): Remove grep.c, regex.c.
	(fgrep.o, egrep.o): Remove.

	* src/grep.h (matcher): Now char const *.
	(default_matcher): New decl.

	* src/grep.c (matcher): Now char const *.
	(setmatcher): Now accepts char const *.
	(main): Default the matcher from default_matcher (linked externally)
	rather than DEFAULT_MATCHER (a macro).

1998-11-08 Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.1: `' should be replaced with `'.
	Nit from Paul Eggert.

1998-11-06 Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.c: The Matcher is not set to argv[0] but
	explicitly by a #define MATCHER at compile time default is "grep".

	* aclocal/: NEW dir. provides our own *.m4

	* Move Paul's Large Files to AC_LFS.(aclocal/lfs.m4)
	Taken from Jim Meyering fileutils.

1998-11-05 Alain Magloire

	* src/grep.1: update the man pages according to the
	changes make by Miles.

	* po/*.po: updated.

	* first beta release for 2.3 (2.2a).

1998-11-04 Miles Bader

	* src/grep.c (main): Rationalize interaction of -C/-NUM/-A/-B
	options, and allow -C to have an optional argument. -NUM can
	now be mixed with -C, and -A, -B always take precedence over
	-C/-NUM, regardless of order.
	(long_options): Let -C/--context take an optional argument.

1998-11-03 Alain Magloire

	* src/dfa.c: HP-UX define clrbit/setbit as macros in 
	#undef if defined.
	Fixed by Andreas Ley and Philippe Defert.

	* src/grep.1 : mention that -s follows POSIX.2 behavior.
	Noted by Paul Eggert and others.

	* tests/ a typo in failure(s).
	Spotted By Sotiris Vassilopoulos.

1998-11-01  Paul Eggert

	IN_CTYPE_DOMAIN instead of isascii.

1998-08-18  Paul Eggert

	* AUTHORS: Rephrase of some sentences.
	* README:  Rewording.
	Noted and patched by Joel N. Weber II.

1998-04-17 Kaveh R. Ghazi

	* src/dfa.h: Don't define `const', trust autoconf to handle it.

1998-04-16 Alain Magloire

	* tests/{status,empty}.sh: wrong return status.

	* src/grep.c: Remove the REGEX part in usage (), it was
	consider overkill by most.

1998-04-14  Eli Zaretskii

	* djgpp/config.bat: Support file names with multiple dots on all

	* djgpp/README: Add instructions about file names illegal on

1998-04-13 Alain Magloire

	* src/dfa.c: by "popular" demand reverse
	back to '_' not word-constituent.

	* grep-2.1.1c available for testing.

1998-04-13  Karl Heuer

	* src/grep.c: (a) The directory check is done too early:
	logically, if the argument is "-", then it refers to standard
	input, regardless of whether there's something in the file
	system answering to "-".
	(b) The sh command "grep -l root /etc/passwd /etc/group 0<&-"
	prints "(standard input)" instead of "/etc/passwd", because it
	mistakenly believes that a named file will never be opened on fd
	0.  The string "(standard input)" should be based on the file
	having been originally specified as "-", rather than making
	assumptions about the fd.
	(c) the code that calls close(fd) is being done outside of the
	test for a bad fd.  Thus, if the open failed, this code will
	attempt to close(-1).  It should be done inside the "fd != -1"
	This patch addresses all three of these problems.

1998-04-13 Alain Magloire

	* remove the deprecated AC_ISC_POSIX macro.
	Spotted by Karl Heuer.

1998-04-03  Eli Zaretskii

	* djgpp/main.mak, djgpp/src.mak, djgpp/tests.mak: Updated from the

	* tests/ typos and replace the echos with
	a simple cat.
	Noted By Jim Meyering.

	* src/regex.c: #undef ISASCII and ISPRINT before defining
	them(On Solaris it was define).
	Pattern 'a[[:]:]]b' is an invalid char class and the error
	from regex was 1(REG_NOMATCH) instead of 2 (REG_ECTYPE).
	Fix with help from Ulrich Drepper.

	* src/grep.c (usage): Ulrich wrote: "A single printf should
	not have more than 900 bytes. For translation reasons the
	text shouldn't be split in too many pieces since this is
	tiresome and also does not help to generate a consistent picture."
	Noted by Ulrich Drepper.
	* src/grep.c (usage): Dig out and old patch from
	Franc,ois to explain the regex in usage().
	Ideas from Franc,ois Pinard.

	* src/grep.c (usage): Formating the --help message a bit off.
	Noted by William Bader.

	* src/grep.c (main): When checking conflicting matcher for option -E the
	matcher was to "egrep" instead of "posix-egrep".
	Reported by

	* src/grep.c: Typos and rewording the --help message.
	Reported by Karl Heuer.

	* src/grep.1: The man page wording :
	  A regular expression matching a single character may be
	  followed by one of several repetition operators:
	is unclear since 'x(yz)*z' is a valid regex.
	Remove the "matching a single character".
	Suggested by Harald Hanche-Olsen.

	* src/grep.c (main): `-f /dev/null' now specifies no patterns
	and therfore matches nothing.
	Reported by Jorge Stolfi.
	Patched by Paul Eggert.

	--files-with-matches is missing from the option table.
	The help lists '--fixed-strings' as the long option for -F,
	the table has '--fixed-regexp'.
	--regexp appears in the option table as 'no_argument'
	instead of 'required_argument'.
	--with-filename is missing from the option table.
	Reported by Grant McDorman and Krishna Sethuraman.

1997-10-19 Alain Magloire

	Corrected by Jim Hand.

	* GNU gettext library from gettext-0.10.32.

	* src/grep.c: reverse back to greping directories,
	One could skip the error message by defining
	SKIP_DIR_ERROR. There is no clear way of doing
	things, I hope to setle this on the next majore release
	Thanks Paul Eggert, Eli Zaretskii and gnits for the

	* tests/ add this check to make sure
	That the return status code is ok.

	[O_BINARY]: Pass additional DOS-specific options to getopt_long
	and handle them.  Call stat before attempting to open the file, in
	case it is a directory (DOS will fail the open call for
	directories).  Switch the input descriptor to binary mode, unless
	it is a terminal device.

	* system.h [O_BINARY]: Define macros to switch a handle to binary
	mode, so binary files could be grep'ed on MS-DOS and MS-Windows.
	HAVE_LC_MESSAGES, to prevent compilation error in grep.c on
	systems which don't define HAVE_LC_MESSAGES, but have setlocale.

	* dosbuf.c: New file, functions specific for MS-DOS/MS-Windows.
	(guess_type, undossify_input, dossified_pos): New functions.

	From Jim Meyering .

	* grep.c:usage() more consistency in the --help.

	* egrep, fgrep were links This is in violation of GNU standards:
	"Please don't make the behavior of a utility depend on the name used
	to invoke it.  It is useful sometimes to make a link to a utility with
	a different name, and that should not change what it does."
	For now egrep and fgrep will be copies of grep. A better scheme
	should be found later.
	After discussion with Tom Tromey .

	* and included: They are stubs that call grep.1.
	* modified to install {f,e,}grep[,.1].

	* speed hack for -l, -L: bail out on first match.
	From Scott Weikart .
