Perl pattern matching circumflex and dollar?

Post by DFH » Thu Jul 12, 2012 8:49 pm

Is there a reason why Perl pattern matching circumflex and dollar
(to assert start of line and end of line respectively)
does NOT match when the EOLs are Unix (LF) style rather than DOS/PC (CR LF)?

This will be fixed in 9.2.

If the same bug affects input files with Mac style EOLs (CR), I'll assume you'll attend to that too?

I don't believe it affects Mac EOLs.

As it affects input files with Unix style EOLs, this must have been a very old software bug!

I'm quite amazed that no-one had reported this hitherto!

It seems to have been reintroduced a year or so ago, with an update to the PCRE engine.
