Change History

comment:1 Changed 4 years ago by kb0iic


  • Noteworthy changes in release 2.20 (2014-06-03) [stable]

Bug fixes

grep --max-count=N FILE would no longer stop reading after the Nth match. I.e., while grep would still print the correct output, it would continue reading until end of input, and hence, potentially forever. [bug introduced in grep-2.19]

A command like echo aa|grep -E 'a(b$|c$)' would mistakenly report the input as a matched line. [bug introduced in grep-2.19]

Changes in behavior

grep --exclude-dir='FOO/' now excludes the directory FOO. Previously, the trailing slash meant the option was ineffective.
