Hello, I recently did lsb-test-core on ubuntu 16.04. There is a test
that can be successful in bash 4.1 but fails in bash 4.3.
The test comment is : bash tp10.sh.
The content of tp10.sh is : echo [[:xdigit:]] [[:hyphen:]].
And this test sets a multibyte locale that defines a charclass
When I run the tp10.sh script with bash, I find that ''hyphen'' can be
recognized in bash4.1 but not in bash4.3.
By comparing the source code, I found that compared to bash4.1, there
are 2 more lines of code in bash4.3, which in the xstrmatch() function
The two lines of code are as follows:
When I checked the change log at
https://tiswww.case.edu/php/chet/bash/CHANGES, I guess this change may
be for efficiency speedups.
So I want to confirm with you whether my guess is correct, and whether
this change ignores the fact that pattern does not have a multibyte
character but is defined in the charclass in multibyte locales.
Looking forward to your reply.
