    doc: tweak NEWS and coreutils.texi

    eggert authored Jim Meyering committed
    * doc/coreutils.texi (stat invocation): Add sentence-ending period.
    * NEWS: Correct stat change description: s/floating point //.
    * (old_NEWS_hash): Update, to match this NEWS change.
  2. post-release administrivia

    Jim Meyering authored
    * NEWS: Add header line for next release.
    * .prev-version: Record previous version.
    * (old_NEWS_hash): Auto-update.
  3. version 8.7

    Jim Meyering authored
    * NEWS: Record release date.
  4. build: update gnulib...

    Jim Meyering authored fix the failing update-copyright test,
    and for the openat portability fix.
  5. build: update gnulib for linux 2.6.9 nanosleep workaround

    Jim Meyering authored
    Also, do the following to avoid "make syntax-check" failure
    induced by new rules.
    * .x-sc_bindtextdomain: Exempt files with an #ifdef'd "main".
    * Add this file.
  6. maint: remove fstimeprec (variable precision time stamp) support

    Jim Meyering authored
    The implementation of variable-precision time stamps relied
    on heuristics that made the output subtly nondeterministic,
    or at least hard to reproduce:
    So, for now at least, we're removing that feature.
    * bootstrap.conf (gnulib_modules): Remove fstimeprec.
    * gl/lib/fstimeprec.c, gl/lib/fstimeprec.h: Remove files.
    * gl/modules/fstimeprec, gl/modules/fstimeprec-tests: Likewise.
    * gl/tests/test-fstimeprec.c: Remove file.
  7. stat: do not provide variable precision time stamps

    Jim Meyering authored
    * src/stat.c: Don't include fstimeprec.c.
    (out_epoch_sec): Don't call fstimeprec.
    * NEWS: Update description.
    * doc/coreutils.texi: Likewise.

    csplit: do not rely on undefined behavior in printf formats

    eggert authored Jim Meyering committed
    * doc/coreutils.texi (csplit invocation): Say that %d and %i are
    aliases for %u.
    * src/csplit.c (FLAG_THOUSANDS, FLAG_ALTERNATIVE): New constants.
    (get_format_flags): Now take char const * and int * and return
    size_t.  It now stores info about the flags instead of merely
    scanning them.  Also, it handles '0' correctly.  Drop support for
    the undocumented '+' and ' ' flags since the value is unsigned.
    Add support for the (undocumented) "'" flag.  All uses changed.
    (get_format_width, get_format_prec): Remove.
    (check_format_conv_type): Renamed from get_format_conv_type, with
    a different signature.  It now converts the format to one that is
    compatible with unsigned int, and checks flags.  All uses changed.
    (max_out): Have snprintf compute the number of bytes needed rather
    than attempting to do it ourselves (which doesn't work portably
    with outlandish formats such as %4294967296d).
    (check_format_conv_type, main): Check for overflow in size
    calculations.  Don't assume size_t fits in unsigned int.
    * tests/misc/csplit: Check for proper handling of flags, with
    %0#6.3x.  Coreutils 8.6 mishandles this somewhat-weird example.

  1. tests: fix comments and --version invocation in new test

    Jim Meyering authored
    * tests/misc/csplit-1000: Fix comments and --version invocation.
  2. csplit: avoid buffer overrun when writing more than 999 files

    Jim Meyering authored
    Without this fix, seq 1000 | csplit - /./ '{*}' would write
    the NUL-terminated file name, xx1000, into a buffer of size 6.
    * src/csplit.c (main): Use properly sized file name buffer.

    * tests/misc/csplit-1000: New test to trigger the bug.

    tests: avoid portability problem with dash vs. symlinked ttys

    pixelb authored
    * tests/mv/i-3: Adjust so that the symlink is resolved
    before redirecting to the background command, as otherwise
    the stdin descriptor passed to the command will fail the
    isatty() or ttyname() test.

  1. tests: don't disqualify FreeBSD 8.1's /bin/sh just yet,

    Jim Meyering authored
    because dash-0.5.6-2.fc14.x86_64 would also be disqualified.
    This reverts part of yesterday's commit 6c058b2, "tests: avoid
    failure due to bug in FreeBSD 8.1's /bin/sh".  Note that the offending
    aspect of those shells is not officially a bug, since "local" is not
    specified by POSIX.  However, it is very unintuitive that prepending
    "local" to an existing, standards-compliant assignment would evoke
    such a fundamental change in semantics.
    * tests/ Remove snippet requiring sane "local" support.

    * src/stat.c (digits, printf_flags): New static vars.
    (make_format): New function.
    (out_string, out_int, out_uint, out_uint_o, out_uint_x):
    (out_minus_zero): Use it to avoid undefined behavior when invoking
    (print_it): Check for invalid conversion specifications such as
    %..X and %1-X, which would otherwise rely on undefined behavior
    when invoking printf.
    * tests/misc/stat-nanoseconds: Check that the "I" printf flag
    doesn't mess up in the C locale, as it formerly did on non-GNU

    * gl/lib/fstimeprec.c, gl/lib/fstimeprec.h, gl/modules/fstimeprec:

    New files.
    * bootstrap.conf (gnulib_modules): Add fstimeprec.

    (decimal_point, decimal_point_len): New static vars.

    (print_stat, print_it, usage): Remove the %:X-style formats.
    * tests/misc/stat-nanoseconds: Set TZ=UTC0 to avoid problems
    with weird time zones.  Use a time stamp near the Epoch so that we
    don't have to worry about leap seconds.  Redo test cases to match
    new behavior.
    * tests/touch/60-seconds: Change %Y.%:Y to %.9Y, to adjust to
    new behavior.

  1. build: update gnulib to latest

  2. stat: revert %X-%Y-%Z change; use e.g., %:X to print fractional seconds

    Jim Meyering authored
    This reverts part of the recent commit 9069af4,
    "stat: print timestamps to full resolution", which made %X, %Y, %Z
    print floating point numbers.  We prefer to retain portability of
    %X, %Y and %Z uses, while still providing access to full-resolution
    time stamps via modified format strings.  Also make the new
    %W consistent.
    * src/stat.c: Include "xstrtol.h".
    (print_it): Accept a new %...:[XYZ] format directive,
    e.g., %:X, to print the nanoseconds portion of the corresponding time.
    For example, %3.3:Y prints the zero-padded, truncated, milliseconds
    part of the time of last modification.
    (print_it): Update print_func signature to match.
    (neg_to_zero): New helper function.
    (epoch_time): Remove function; replace with...
    (epoch_sec): New function; use timetostr.
    (out_ns): New function.  Use "09" only when no other modifier
    is specified.
    (print_statfs): Change type of "m" to unsigned int,
    now that it must accommodate values larger than 255.
    (print_stat): Likewise.
    Map :X to a code of 'X' + 256.  Likewise for Y, Z and W.
    (usage): Update.
    * tests/touch/60-seconds: Use %Y.%:Y in place of %Y.
    * tests/misc/stat-nanoseconds: New file.
    * tests/ (TESTS): Add it.
    * NEWS (Changes in behavior): Mention this.
    With improvements by Pádraig Brady.
    Thanks to Andreas Schwab for raising the issue.

    pixelb authored
    * doc/coreutils.texi (cp invocation): Change the description slightly

    Mention that --reflink is overridden by the other linking options and
    --attributes-only, and give an example where this might be useful.
    * src/copy.c (copy_internal): Bypass the reflink if
    --attributes-only is specifed.

    overridden by --attributes-only.

    tail: support rechecking currently missing remote dirs

    src/tail.c (main): As an optimization, don't bother checking
    for stdin or remote files, when ---disable-inotify is specified.
