grep 2.5.1a-1: -P unsupported
Mon Feb 28 18:06:00 GMT 2005
I think I found a bug in the latest version of grep in Cygwin. I use
"grep -P" frequently to search for files using Perl-compatible regular
expressions. I updated Cygwin a couple of days ago, and suddenly found
the -P and --perl-regexp options (equivalent) didn't work. When you try to
use -P, it says "-P option not supported."
I messed around with options, installed and uninstalled pcre and Perl, and
finally went back from grep 2.5.1a-1 to the previous version, 2.5.1. That
fixed it, leaving me to assume something in 2.5.1a-1 is broken, with respect
to the perl-compatible options.
