coreutils-4.5.2 released

From: Jim Meyering
Subject: coreutils-4.5.2 released
Date: Sun, 06 Oct 2002 08:25:07 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.090008 (Oort Gnus v0.08) Emacs/21.3.50 (i686-pc-linux-gnu)

This is a bug fix release -- there are certainly more than I
would have predicted.  Luckily for my ego, most are not new :-)
The rm -i bug was introduced with the rewrite that appeared
in fileutils-4.1.9.

Special thanks to Andreas Schwab (and SuSE, I presume) for two
of the reports-and-fixes.

There is one new feature: tail's sleep interval may now be
specified as a floating point number.

2002-10-05  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * Version 4.5.2.

        * src/remove.c (remove_entry) [ROOT_CAN_UNLINK_DIRS]: With `rm -i DIR',
        don't recurse into directory, DIR.  Prompted by a report from
        Leonardo Milano.

        * tests/rm/i-no-r: New file/test, for the above fix.
        * tests/rm/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add i-no-r.

        * tests/tail-2/big-4gb: New file/test, for the fix of 2002-09-27.
        * tests/tail-2/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add big-4gb.

2002-10-03  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/rm.c (AUTHORS): Mark translatable string with `N_ (...)'.
        * src/df.c (AUTHORS): Likewise.
        * src/du.c (AUTHORS): Likewise.
        * src/tail.c (AUTHORS): Likewise.
        * src/touch.c (AUTHORS): Likewise.

2002-10-02  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * Makefile.am (SUBDIRS): Remove `old'.
        (EXTRA_DIST): List the files in old/.
        * configure.ac (AC_CONFIG_FILES): Remove old/* names.
        Suggestion from Akim Demaille.

2002-10-01  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/sys2.h (SSIZE_MAX): Define.

2002-09-30  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/csplit.c: Don't include stdlib.h here.  It's already included
        via system.h.

2002-09-29  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/tr.c (find_bracketed_repeat): Rearrange pointer/integer
        expression to avoid bogus warning from gcc.

        * src/cat.c (simple_cat): Use a temporary to avoid bogus warnings.
        (cat): Declare insize and outsize to be of type size_t, not int.
        Rearrange pointer/integer expressions to avoid bogus warnings.
        (main): Declare insize and outsize to be of type size_t, not int.

        * src/tail.c (parse_options): Give a sensible diagnostic for
        an invalid byte or line count.  Reported by Mikko Tuumanen.

        * src/touch.c (main): Split a long line.

        * tests/du/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add slink.
        * tests/du/slink: New test for system.h change of 2002-08-31.

        In move mode, always first try to rename.  Before, upon failure to
        rename a directory, this code would never attempt to rename any
        other file in that directory, but would thenceforth always copy.
        On some systems (e.g., NetApp's OnTap-6.4), renaming a directory
        may fail with EXDEV, yet renaming files within that directory to
        a newly-created destination directory succeeds.
        * src/copy.c (copy_internal): Remove local, move_mode;
        use x->move_mode instead.  Based on a patch from Tom Haynes.

2002-09-28  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/split.c (FAIL_ONLY_ONE_WAY): New macro.
        Factor out some duplication.
        (main): Use it.
        [case 'a']: Use strtoul rather than strtol to avoid compiler warnings.

        * src/sort.c (begfield, limfield): Rearrange comparisons to avoid
        compiler warnings.
        (fillbuf, keycompare): Cast literal `-1' to size_t in comparisons,
        to avoid compiler warnings.

        * src/shred.c (dopass): Use a uintmax_t temporary to avoid bogus
        compiler warnings.

        Fix things so `mkdir -p' can create very deep directories, e.g.,
        mkdir -p $(perl -e 'print "a/" x 40000') now works.
        * src/mkdir.c (main): For --parents (-p), call make_path with the
        entire directory name, so we don't ever require that file operations
        like stat or chmod be performed on the entire command line argument.
        * makepath.c (make_path): Restore umask *before* creating the final

2002-09-27  Andreas Schwab  <address@hidden>

        * src/tail.c (tail_bytes): Change type of bytes_remaining to off_t
        to avoid overflow.  Reported by Hans Lermen.

2002-09-26  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/install.c (get_ids): Use strtoul, not strtol.  Remove some casts.

2002-09-25  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/test.c (eaccess): Change type of local `euid' from int to uid_t
        and add a cast, to avoid a warning about `signed and unsigned type in
        conditional expression'.

2002-09-22  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/rmdir.c: Include "dirname.h", for declaration of

        * src/stat.c (PRIdMAX, PRIuMAX): Remove definitions.
        Now they're defined through system.h.

        * src/cp-hash.c, src/dd.c, src/df.c, src/du.c, src/ls.c,
        * src/stat.c, src/wc.c: Remove all inclusions of inttypes.h,
        since it's already included from sys2.h via system.h.

        * Use automake-1.6f.  Regenerate dependent files.

        * src/Makefile.am (PERL): Remove duplicate definition.

        fmt's -s, -t, -c options didn't work properly for long lines.
        Since get_line may end up calling put_paragraph (for long lines),
        be sure to set global, `other_indent', before it is used there.

        * src/fmt.c (set_other_indent): New function, factored out of...
        (get_paragraph): ... here.  Call it.
        (get_line): Call set_other_indent before calling flush_paragraph,
        which calls fmt_paragraph, which in turn calls put_paragraph,
        which uses other_indent.

        * tests/fmt/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add long-line.
        * tests/fmt/long-line: New file/test, for the above fix.

2002-09-21  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/od.c: No longer include deprecated <values.h>.
        It was required solely for now-removed reference to BITSPERBYTE.
        * src/install.c: Likewise.
        Suggestion from Bruno Haible.

2002-09-06  Andreas Schwab  <address@hidden>

        `rmdir -p dir-specified-with-trailing-slash/' would fail.
        * src/rmdir.c (remove_parents): Strip trailing slashes.

2002-09-20  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/rmdir/t-slash: New file/test, for the above fix.
        * tests/rmdir/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add t-slash.

        * Makefile.maint (announcement): Arrange to gpg-sign the message.
        Add a URL for each detached signature file.

2002-09-07  Bruno Haible  <address@hidden>

        * configure.ac: Add need-ngettext to AM_GNU_GETTEXT invocation.

2002-09-18  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        `od -t x8' used the wrong (`l'-prefixed) printf format.
        Likewise for the o8 and u8 formats.
        * src/od.c (ISPEC_TO_FORMAT): Define macro.
        (decode_one_format): Use PRIdMAX, PRIoMAX, etc. for LONG_LONG.
        Reported by Arun Sharma.

2002-09-17  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/sys2.h (PRIdMAX, PRIoMAX, PRIuMAX, PRIxMAX): Define if necessary.
        From gettext's intl/loadmsgcat.c.

        * tests/od/x8: New file/test, for the above fix.
        * tests/od/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add x8.

2002-09-15  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * Use autoconf-2.54.  Regenerate dependent files.

        * src/csplit.c (get_format_width): Add cast to avoid
        warning about `signed and unsigned type in conditional expression'.

2002-09-14  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/who.c (print_user): Change type of local to size_t
        to avoid warnings about `comparison between signed and unsigned'.
        * src/ptx.c (generate_all_output): Likewise.

        * src/dd.c (main, skip): Add casts to avoid warnings about
        `comparison between signed and unsigned'.

        * src/id.c (print_full_info, print_group_list): Add casts to avoid
        warnings about `signed and unsigned type in conditional expression'.

        * src/md5sum.c: Change type of global, digest_hex_bytes, to size_t
        to avoid warnings about `comparison between signed and unsigned'.

        Reported by Raul: DervishD <address@hidden>
        * tests/misc/printf: New file: test for the above.
        * tests/misc/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add printf.

        * src/date.c (usage): Explain that %S's range of [0..60] is required --
        rather than 0..59 -- to accommodate the occasional positive leap second.
        Reported by Richard Neill.

2002-09-12  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/Makefile.am (nanosec_libs): Define.
        (sleep_LDADD, tail_LDADD): Use it here.

        Factor nanosleep-related code into ../lib/xnanosleep.c.

        the most recent test release.

        * src/pathchk.c (NEED_PATHCONF_WRAPPER): Define.
        (pathconf_wrapper): Define only if NEED_PATHCONF_WRAPPER is set.
