  1. Update version to 1.2

    This updates the version now so the future tagging of 1.2 will
    match the code.  Also, I do not like patchlevel version numbering.

  2. Version bump to 1.1

  1. Move -lz out of the Minix special case, where it doesn't belong

    and back into the general case.
    committed Jun 8, 2010
  2. Restructure the Makefile so that multiple operating system

    checks are not necessary.  It may be prudent, at this time, to
    redevelop the build system based on autoconf.

  3. Removed the dependecy on libz from the Makefile

  1. This removes the include to <sys/limits.h> in grep.c which is not

    necessary since grep.h includes it but also replaces that include
    with an include to <limits.h> for portability, or something
    approaching it.

  8. - use a consistent text for STANDARDS

    - note which options are extensions to POSIX
    Jason McIntyre committed with May 30, 2007
  9. - Be explicit on command line checking, instead of relying on patterns,

      which may be NULL (e.g. -e '').
    - let add_pattern() decide how to deal with empty patterns, don't do
      magic in read_patterns().
    This unbreaks stuff like grep -e '', and makes grep -f <file> more
    POSIX compliant. Semantics for grep -f /dev/null (or any other empty
    file) may be questionable, but this case isn't specified by POSIX,
    and matching nothing at all seems to be sane.
    Thanks to otto@, who mentioned potential problems related to the
    -x option with the first patch i sent.

  10. Reset the number of lines of tail context left to print

    before processing each file to avoid printing lines
    intended from the previous file.

  12. Allow zero-length patterns with -x so

  14. Use S_IS* macros insted of masking with S_IF* flags. The latter may

  20. Make the processing of patterns collected from files specified by -f

    delayed so options that affect pattern-building (such as -w) can be
    applied evenly to all such patterns.

    Jared Yanovich committed with Apr 3, 2005
  21. Protect begin and end of word markers added to the pattern when

    using the -w option with parentheses, to avoid operators in the
    expressions binding to the markers. Compare [[:<:]]foo|bar[[:>:]]
    and [[:<:]](foo|bar)[[:>:]]. Problem spotted by aaron@; ok millert@

  22. Due to a braindead zlib, the test for seekability of a gzstream using

    gzseek(f, 0L, SEEK_CUR) does not work as expected. Instead test the
    underlying stream and remember that. This repairs echo foo | gzip | zgrep foo.
