#4901 closed enhancement (fixed)


Reported by: Xi Ruoyao Owned by: Bruce Dubbs
Priority: normal Milestone: 11.0
Component: Book Version: git
Severity: normal Keywords:


A test of grep-3.6 is failing in LFS. The reason is gnulib shipped in the tarball wasn't adapted for glibc-2.34 SIGSTKSZ change. Now the upstream has updated the shipped gnulib and plans to make a release soon:

We'd better make it into lfs 11.0.

In addition to the NEWS-noted items, there have been improvements in both regex and dfa gnulib modules, so I want to make a release in the next week or so.


  • Changes in behavior
  • Use of the --unix-byte-offsets (-u) option now evokes a warning. Since 3.1, this Windows-only option has had no effect.
  • Bug fixes
  • Preprocessing N patterns would take at least O(N2) time when too many patterns hashed to too few buckets. This now takes seconds, not days: : | grep -Ff <(seq 6400000 | tr 0-9 A-J)
Changes in gnulib since v3.6:
