Description Tim Waugh 2004-11-24 16:05:58 EST
This is for:

 * correctness regressions compared to grep-2.5.1-31
 * performance regressions compared to grep-2.5.1-31
 * benchmark results
 * even a simple "installed it here and it seems to work"

grep -f and fgrep fail on binary files at 
 read(3, "eck\0freopen\0__wuflow\0re_search\0f"..., 12288) = 12288 
 open("/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache", O_RDONLY) = 4 
 fstat64(4, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=21544, ...}) = 0 
 mmap2(NULL, 21544, PROT_READ, MAP_SHARED, 4, 0) = 0xf6ddc000 
 close(4) = 0 
And there is sits as long as I'm willing to wait (up to an hour so 
far). Doesn't matter whether I'm root or a user. Strings file|grep 
<something> doesn't show this problem, nor does it occur on ascii

Thanks for the report.  This seems to be a regression relative to FC3.  Here is
the command line that reproduces it:

fgrep foo /bin/ex

(/bin/ex from vim-minimal-6.3.030-3)
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-12-03 10:56:37 EST
Fixed package is grep-2.5.1-31.2.  Please re-test.  Thanks!
Comment 4 Rob Hughes 2004-12-03 11:08:43 EST
Works now. Thanks!
Comment 5 Rob Hughes 2004-12-03 11:15:41 EST
Just wanted to mention that grep_2.5.1-40_i386.rpm from rawhide shows the same 
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2004-12-03 11:27:29 EST
Yes, I fixed rawhide at the same time.
