gawk: update to 5.2.2.

Changes from 5.2.1 to 5.2.2

1. Infrastructure upgrades: makeinfo 7.0.1 must be used to format
   the manual.  As a result, the manual can also now be formatted
   with LaTeX by running it through `makeinfo --latex'.

2. Gawk no longer builds an x86_64 executable on M1 macOS systems.
   This means that PMA is unavailable on those systems.

3. Gawk will now diagnose if a heap file was created with a different
   setting of -M/--bignum than in the current invocation and exit with
   a fatal message if so.

4. Gawk no longer "leaks" its free list of NODEs in the heap file, resulting
   in much more efficient usage of persistent storage.

5. PROCINFO["pma"] exists if the PMA allocator is compiled into gawk.
   Its value is the PMA version.

6. The time extension is no longer deprecated. The strptime() function
   from gawkextlib's timex extension has been added to it.

7. Better information is passed to input parsers for when they want to
   decide whether or not to take control of a file. In particular, the
   readdir extension is simplified for Windows because of this.

8. The various PNG files are now installed for Info and HTML. The
   images files now have gawk_ prefixed names to avoid any conflicts
   with other installed PNG file names.

9. As usual, there have been several minor code cleanups and bug fixes.
   See the ChangeLog for details.

gawk: update to 5.2.1.

Changes from 5.2.0 to 5.2.1

1. Infrastructure upgrades: PMA version Avon 8.

2. Issues related to the sign of NaN and Inf values on RiscV have
   been fixed; gawk now gives identical results on that platform as
   it does on others.

3. A few issues with the debugger have been fixed.

4. More subtle issues with untyped array elements being passed to
   functions have been fixed.

5. The rwarray extension's readall() function has had some bugs fixed.

6. The PMA allocator is now supported on FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Linux on S/390x.
   Is is now supported also on both Intel and M1 macOS systems.

7. There have been several minor code cleanups and bug fixes. See the
   ChangeLog for details.

gawk: update to 5.2.0.

Changes from 5.1.x to 5.2.0

* MPFR mode (the -M option) is now ON PAROLE.  This feature is now being    *
* supported by a volunteer in the development team and not by the primary   *
* maintainer.  If this situation changes, then the feature will be removed. *
* For more information see this section in the manual:                      *
*    *

1. Infrastructure upgrades: Libtool 2.4.7, Bison 3.8.2.

2. Numeric scalars now compare in the same way as C for the relational
   operators. Comparison order for sorting has not changed.  This only
   makes a difference when comparing Infinity and NaN values with
   regular numbers; it should not be noticeable most of the time.

3. If the AWK_HASH environment variable is set to "fnv1a" gawk will
   use the FNV1-A hash function for associative arrays.

4. The CMake infrastructure has been removed. In the five years it was in
   the tree, nobody used it, and it was not updated.

5. There is now a new function, mkbool(), that creates Boolean-typed
   values.  These values *are* numbers, but they are also tagged as
   Boolean. This is mainly for use with data exchange to/from languages
   or environments that support real Boolean values. See the manual
   for details.

6. As BWK awk has supported interval expressions since 2019, they are
   now enabled even if --traditional is supplied. The -r/--re-interval option
   remains, but it does nothing.

7. The rwarray extension has two new functions, writeall() and readall(),
   for saving / restoring all of gawk's variables and arrays.

8. The new `gawkbug' script should be used for reporting bugs.

9. The manual page (doc/gawk.1) has been considerably reduced in size.
   Wherever possible, details were replaced with references to the online
   copy of the manual.

10. Gawk now supports Terence Kelly's "persistent malloc" (pma),
    allowing gawk to preserve its variables, arrays and user-defined
    functions between runs. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL FEATURE!

    For more information, see the manual. A new pm-gawk.1 man page
    is included, as is a separate user manual that focuses on the feature.

11. Support for OS/2 has been removed. It was not being actively

12. Similarly, support for DJGPP has been removed. It also was not
    being actively maintained.

13. VAX/VMS is no longer supported, as it can no longer be tested.
    The files for it remain in the distribution but will be removed

14. Some subtle issues with untyped array elements being passed to
    functions have been fixed.

15. Syntax errors are now immediately fatal. This prevents problems
    with errors from fuzzers and other such things.

16. There have been numerous minor code cleanups and bug fixes. See the
    ChangeLog for details.

gawk: update to 5.1.1.

Changes from 5.1.0 to 5.1.1

1. Infrastructure upgrades: Bison 3.8, Gettext 0.20.2, Automake 1.16.4,
   and (will wonders never cease) Autoconf 2.71.

2. asort and asorti now allow FUNCTAB and SYMTAB as the first argument if a
   second destination array is supplied. Similarly, using either array as
   the second argument is now a fatal error. Additionally, using either
   array as the destination for split(), match(), etc. also causes a
   fatal error.

3. The new -I/--trace option prints a trace of the byte codes as they
   are executed.

4. A number of subtle bugs relating to MPFR mode that caused differences
   between regular operation and MPFR mode have been fixed.

5. The API now handles MPFR/GMP values slightly differently, requiring
   different memory management for those values. See the manual for the
   details if you have an extension using those values.  As a result,
   the minor version was incremented.

6. $0 and the fields are now cleared before starting a BEGINFILE rule.

7. The duplication of m4 and build-aux directories between the main
   directory and the extension directory has been removed. This
   simplifies the distribution.

8. The test suite has been improved, making it easier to run the entire
   suite with -M. Use `GAWK_TEST_ARGS=-M make check' to do so.

9. Profiling and pretty-printing output has been modified slightly so
   that functions are presented in a reasonable order with respect
   to the namespaces that contain them.

10. Several example programs in the manual have been updated to their
    modern POSIX equivalents.

11. A number of examples in doc/gawkinet.texi have been updated for
    current times. Thanks to Juergen Kahrs for the work.

12. Handling of Infinity and NaN values has been improved.

13. There has been a general tightening up of the use of const and
    of types.

14. The "no effect" lint warnings have been fixed up and now behave
    more sanely.

15. The manual has been updated with much more information about what is
    and is not a bug, and the changes in the gawk mailing lists.

16. The behavior of strongly-typed regexp constants when passed as the
    third argument to sub() or gsub() has been clarified in the code and
    in the manual.

17. Similar to item #4 above, division by zero is now fatal in MPFR
    mode, as it is in regular mode.

18. There have been numerous minor code cleanups and bug fixes. See the
    ChangeLog for details.

gawk: update to 5.1.0.

Changes from 5.0.1 to 5.1.0

1. The major version of the API is bumped to 3, something that should
   have happened at the 5.0.0 release but didn't.

2. A number of memory leak issues have been fixed.

3. Infrastructure upgrades: Bison 3.5.4, Texinfo 6.7, Gettext 0.20.1,
   Automake 1.16.2.

4. The indexing in the manual has been thoroughly revised, in particular
   making use of the facilities in Texinfo 6.7.  That version (or newer)
   must be used to format the manual.

5. MSYS2 is now supported out-of-the-box by configure.

6. Several bugs have been fixed.  See the ChangeLog for details.

Update to 5.0.1

Changes from 5.0.0 to 5.0.1

1. A number of ChangeLog.1 files that were left out of the distribution
   have been restored.

2. Multiple syntax errors should no longer be able to cause a core dump.

3. Sandbox mode now disallows assigning new filename values in ARGV that
   were not there when gawk was invoked.

4. There are many small documentation improvements in the manual.

5. The new argument "no-ext" to --lint disables ``XXX is a gawk extension''
   lint warnings.

6. Infrastructure upgrades: Bison 3.4.

N. A number of bugs, some of them quite significant, have been fixed.
   See the ChangeLog for details.

Update to 5.0.0

Changes from 4.2.1 to 5.0.0

1. Support for the POSIX standard %a and %A printf formats has been added.

2. The test infrastructure has been greatly improved, simplifying the
   contents of test/ and making it possible to generate
   pc/Makefile.tst from test/

3. The regex routines have been replaced with those from GNULIB, allowing
   me to stop carrying forward decades of changes against the original
   ones from GLIBC.

4. Infrastructure upgrades: Bison 3.3, Automake 1.16.1, Gettext,
   makeinfo 6.5.

5. The undocumented configure option and code that enabled the use of
   non-English "letters" in identifiers is now gone.

6. The `--with-whiny-user-strftime' configuration option is now gone.

7. The code now makes some stronger assumptions about a C99 environment.

8. PROCINFO["platform"] yields a string indicating the platform for
   which gawk was compiled.

9. Writing to elements of SYMTAB that are not variable names now
   causes a fatal error. THIS CHANGES BEHAVIOR.

10. Comment handling in the pretty-printer has been reworked almost completely
    from scratch. As a result, comments in many corner cases that were
    previously lost are now included in the formatted output.

11. Namespaces have been implemented! See the manual.  One consequence of this
    is that files included with -i, read with -f, and command line program
    segments must all be self-contained syntactic units. E.g., you can no
    longer do something like this:

   	gawk -e 'BEGIN {' -e 'print "hello" }'

12. Gawk now uses the locale settings for ignoring case in single byte
    locales, instead of hardwiring in Latin-1.

13. A number of bugs, some of them quite significant, have been fixed.
    See the ChangeLog for details.

gawk: updated to 4.2.1

Changes from 4.2.0 to 4.2.1

1. Support for OS/2 has been brought up to date.  This support was
   accidentally omitted from the initial 4.2 release, for which
   we apologize.

2. The manual received a number of updates to make it format better
   for PDF.

3. A new configure option, --enable-versioned-dir, causes the directory
   holding extensions to include the API version in its name.

4. extension/ has been improved considerably.

5. In MPFR mode, When ROUNDMODE changes, string values for numerically
   type values will be redone.

6. The various 'inplace' tests now pass on modern BSD systems.

7. A number of bugs, some of them quite significant, have been fixed.
   See the ChangeLog for details.

Changes from 4.1.4 to 4.2.0

1. If not in POSIX mode, changes to ENVIRON are reflected into
   gawk's environment, affecting any programs run by system()
   or for piped redirections. This can also affect built-in routines, such
   as mktime(), which is typically influenced by the TZ environment variable.

2. The series of numbers returned by rand() should now be "more
   random" than previously.  Gawk's rand() remains repeatable; you will
   get the same series of numbers each time you call rand() repeatedly,
   but this will be a different series than previously.

3. Multiple changes related to the pretty printer:

   * The --pretty-print option no longer runs the program too.

   * Pretty printing now preserves comments and places them into the
     pretty-printed file.

   * Pretty-printing now uses the original text of constant numeric values
     for pretty-printing and profiling.

   * Pretty-printing now preserves parenthesized expressions as they
     were in the source file. This solves several niggling corner cases
     with such things.

4. The igawk script and igawk.1 man page are no longer installed by
   `make install'.  They have been obsolete since gawk 4.0.0.

5. Gawk can now be built with CMake.  This is an alternative build
   system for those who may want it; gawk is not going to switch off
   use of the autotools anytime soon, if ever.

6. Gawk now processes a maximum of two hexadecimal digits in \x
   escape sequences inside strings.

7. Setting PROCINFO["redirection", "NONFATAL"] to true makes I/O
   errors for "redirection" not fatal, setting ERRNO. Setting
   PROCINFO["NONFATAL"] makes all I/O nonfatal. See the manual.

8. MirBSD is no longer supported.

9. `make install' now installs shell startup files
   $sysconfdir/profile.d/gawk.{csh,sh} containing shell functions to
   manipulate the AWKPATH and AWKLIBPATH environment variables.  On a Fedora
   system, these files belong in /etc/profile.d, but the appropriate location
   may be different on other platforms.

10. Gawk now supports retryable I/O via PROCINFO[input-file, "RETRY"]; see
    the manual.

11. The C API has undergone changes that break binary compatibility with
    the previous version. Thus the API version is now at 2.0.  YOU WILL
    NEED TO RECOMPILE YOUR EXTENSIONS to work with this version of gawk.
    Source code compatibility remains intact, although you will get
    compiler warnings if you do not revise your extensions. We strongly
    recommend that you do so.  Fortunately, the changes are fairly minor
    and straightforward.

    See the manual for the new features.

12. Revisions in the POSIX standard remove the special case for POSIX
    mode when FS = " " where newline was not a field separator. The code
    and doc have been updated.

13. Gawk now supports strongly typed regexp constants. Such constants
    look like @/.../.  You can assign them to variables, pass them to
    functions, use them in ~, !~ and the case part of a switch statement.
    More details are provided in the manual.

14. The new typeof() function can be used to indicate if a variable or
    array element is an array, regexp, string or number.

15. As promised when 4.1 was released, the old extension mechanism,
    using the `extension' function, is now gone.

16. Support for GNU/Linux on Alpha systems has been removed.

17. Optimizations are now enabled by default. Use the new -s/--no-optimize
    option(s) to disable them.  Pretty-printing and profiling automatically
    disable optimizations so that the output program is the same as the
    original input program.

18. Gawk now uses fwrite_unlocked if it's available. This yields a 7% - 18%
    improvement in raw output speed (gawk '{ print }' on a large file).

19. Passing negative operands to any of the bitwise functions now
    produces a fatal error.

20. Programs that toggle IGNORECASE a lot should now be noticeably faster.

21. The mktime function now accepts an optional second argument. If this
    argument is present and is non-zero or non-null, the time will be converted
    from UTC instead of from the local timezone.

22. The FIELDWIDTHS parsing syntax has been enhanced to allow specifying
    how many characters to skip before a field starts. It also allows
    specifying '*' as the last character to mean "the rest of the record".
    Field splitting with FIELDWIDTHS now sets NF correctly.  The documentation
    for FIELDWIDTHS in the manual has been considerably reorganized and
    improved as well.

23. The PROCINFO["argv"] array records all of gawk's command line arguments
    as gawk received them (the values of the C level argv array).

24. The DJGPP port has been revived and now has an official maintainer.

25. The manual has been translated into Italian!  The translation is
    included in the distribution.

Update to 4.1.4

Changes from 4.1.3 to 4.1.4

1. Updated to GNU autoconf 2.69, automake 1.15, gettext 0.19.7,
   texinfo 6.1, texinfo.tex 2016-02-05.07, libtool 2.4.6.

2. z/OS support updated.

3. At the beginning of each statement, the debugger now checks and
   reports watchpoints that have fired before checking for breakpoints.
   This gives more natural behavior to the user.

4. The "exit" command has been added to the debugger as an alias
   for "quit".

5. AIX 7.1 should pass the test suite now.  Similar for Minix.

6. VMS support has been updated.

7. The profiler / pretty-printer now chains else-if statements instead
   of causing cascading elses.

8. The return value of system() has been enhanced to convey more information.
   See the doc.

9. Attempting to write to the "to" end of a two-way pipe that has been
   closed is now a fatal error. Similarly, so is reading from the "from"
   end that has been closed.

10. MinGW support has been updated.

11. The -d option now allows -d- to print to standard output.

12. Error messages for --help and in other instances should now get
    translated correctly.

13. A new environment variable GAWK_LOCALE_DIR may be set to locate the .mo
    file for gawk itself.

14. The DJGPP port is now officially deprecated.

15. A number of bugs have been fixed. See the ChangeLog.

Update to 4.1.2

Upstream changes:
Changes from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2

1. The manual has been considerably improved.
        - Thoroughly reviewed and updated.
        - Out-of-date examples replaced.
        - Chapter 15 on MPFR reworked.
        - Summary sections added to all chapters.
        - Exercises added in several chapters.
        - Heavily proof-read and copyedited.

2. The debugger's "restart" command now works again.

3. Redirected getline is now allowed inside BEGINFILE/ENDFILE.

4. A number of bugs have been fixed in the MPFR code.

5. Indirect function calls now work for both built-in and extension functions.

6. Built-in functions are now included in FUNCTAB.

7. POSIX and historical practice require the exclusive use of the English
   alphabet in identifiers.  In non-English locales, it was accidentally
   possible to use "letters" beside those of the English alphabet.  This
   has been fixed. (isalpha and isalnum are NOT our friends.)

   If you feel that you must have this misfeature, use `configure --help'
   to see what option to use when configuring gawk to reenable it.

8. The "where" command has been added to the debugger as an alias
   for "backtrace". This will make life easier for long-time GDB users.

9. Gawk no longer explicitly checks the current directory after doing
   a path search of AWKPATH.  The default value continues to have "." at
   the front, so most people should not be affected.  If you have your own
   AWKPATH setting, be sure to put "." in it somewhere. The documentation
   has been updated and clarified.

10. Infrastructure upgrades: Automake 1.15, Gettext 0.19.4, Libtool 2.4.6,
    Bison 3.0.4.

11. If a user-defined function has a parameter with the same name as another
    user-defined function, it is no longer possible to call the second
    function from inside the first.

12. POSIX requires that the names of function parameters not be the
    same as any of the special built-in variables and also not conflict
    with the names of any functions. Gawk has checked for the former
    since 3.1.7. With --posix, it now also checks for the latter.

13. The test suite should check for necessary locales and skip the tests
    where it matters if support isn't what it should be.

14. Gawk now expects to be compiled on a system with multibyte character
    support.  Systems without such support, at least at the C language
    level, are so obsolete as to not be worth supporting anymore.

15. A number of bugs have been fixed. See the ChangeLog.

Update to 4.1.1

Changes from 4.1.0 to 4.1.1

1. The "stat" extension now includes a "devbsize" element which indicates
   the units for the "nblocks" element.

2. The extension facility now works on MinGW. Many of the extensions can be
   built and used directly.

3. A number of bugs in the pretty-printing / profiling code have been fixed.

4. Sockets and two-way pipes now work under MinGW.

5. The debugger now lists source code correctly under Cygwin.

6. Configuration and building with the Mac OS X libreadline should work now.

7. The -O option now works again.

8. The --include option, documented since 4.0, now actually works.

9. Infrastructure updated to automake 1.13.4, bison 3.0.2, and

10. The configure script now accepts a --disable-extensions option,
    which disables checking for and building the extensions.

11. The VMS port has been considerably improved. In particular config.h
    is now generated by a DCL script. Also, the extension facility works
    and several of the extensions can be built and used. Currently, the
    extension facility only works on Alpha and Itanium.

12. The API now provides functions pointers for malloc(), calloc(),
    realloc() and free(), to insure that the same memory allocation
    functions are always used. This bumps the minor version by one.

13. The printf quote flag now works correctly in locales with a different
    decimal point character but without a thousands separator character.
    If the thousands separator is a string, it will be correctly added
    to decimal numbers.

14. The readfile extension now has an input parser that will read whole
    files as a single record.

15. A number of bugs have been fixed. See the ChangeLog.

Changes from 4.0.2 to 4.1.0

1. The three executables gawk, pgawk, and dgawk, have been merged into
   one, named just gawk.  As a result:
        * The -R option is gone
        * Use -D to run the debugger. An optional file argument is a
          list of commands to run first.
        * Use -o to do pretty-printing only.
        * Use -p to do profiling.
   This considerably reduces gawk's "footprint" and eases the documentation
   burden as well.

2. Gawk now supports high precision arithmetic with MPFR.  The default is
   still double precision, but setting PREC changes things, or using
   the -M / --bignum options.  This support is not compiled in if the MPFR
   library is not available.

3. The new -i option (from xgawk) is used for loading awk library files.
   This differs from -f in that the first non-option argument is treated
   as a script.

4. The new -l option (from xgawk) is used for loading dynamic extensions.

5. The dynamic extension interface has been completely redone!  There is
   now a defined API for C extensions to use.  A C extension acts like
   a function written in awk, except that it cannot do everything that awk
   code can. However, this allows interfacing to any facility that is
   available from C.  This is a major development, see the doc, which has
   a nice shiny new chapter describing everything.

   This support is not compiled in if dynamic loading of shared libraries
   is not supported.

   The old extension mechanism is still supported for compatiblity, but
   it will most definitely be removed at the next major release.

6. The "inplace" extension, built using the new facility, can be used to
   simulate the GNU "sed -i" feature.

7. The and(), or() and xor() functions now take any number of arguments,
   with a minimum of two.

8. New arrays: SYMTAB, FUNCTAB, and PROCINFO["identifiers"]. SYMTAB allows
   indirect access to any defined variable or array; it is possible to
   "walk" the symbol table, if that should be necessary.

9. Support for building gawk with a cross compiler has been improved.

10. Infrastructure upgrades: bison 2.7.1, gettext, automake 1.13.1,
    libtool 2.4.2 for the extensions.

Update to 4.0.1:

Changes from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1

1. The default handling of backslash in sub() and gsub() has been reverted to
   the behavior of 3.1. It was silly to think I could break compatibility that
   way, even for standards compliance.

2. Completed the implementation of Rational Range Interpretation.

3. Failure to get the group set is no longer a fatal error.

4. Lots of minor bugs fixed and portability clean-ups along the way. See
   the ChangeLog for details.

Update to 4.0. Provided by Sergey Litvinov <>
on pkgsrc-users.


Changes from 3.1.8 to 4.0.0

1. The special files /dev/pid, /dev/ppid, /dev/pgrpid and /dev/user are
   now completely gone. Use PROCINFO instead.

2. The POSIX 2008 behavior for `sub' and `gsub' are now the default.

3. The \s and \S escape sequences are now recognized in regular expressions.

4. The split() function accepts an optional fourth argument which is an array
   to hold the values of the separators.

5. The new -b / --characters-as-bytes option means "hands off my data"; gawk
   won't try to treat input as a multibyte string.

6. There is a new --sandbox option; see the doc.

7. Indirect function calls are now available.

8. Interval expressions are now part of default regular expressions for
   GNU Awk syntax.

9. --gen-po is now correctly named --gen-pot.

10. switch / case is now enabled by default. There's no longer a need
    for a configure-time option.

11. Gawk now supports BEGINFILE and ENDFILE. See the doc for details.

12. Directories named on the command line now produce a warning, not
    a fatal error, unless --posix or --traditional.

13. The new FPAT variable allows you to specify a regexp that matches
    the fields, instead of matching the field separator. The new patsplit()
    function gives the same capability for splitting.

14. All long options now have short options, for use in `#!' scripts.

15. Support for IPv6 is added via the /inet6/... special file. /inet4/...
    forces IPv4 and /inet chooses the system default (probably IPv4).

16. Added a warning for /[:space:]/ that should be /[[:space:]]/.

17. Merged with John Haque's byte code internals. Adds dgawk debugger and
    possibly improved performance.

18. `break' and `continue' are no longer valid outside a loop, even with

19. POSIX character classes work with --traditional (BWK awk supports them).

20. Nuked redundant --compat, --copyleft, and --usage long options.

21. Arrays of arrays added. See the doc.

22. Per the GNU Coding Standards, dynamic extensions must now define
    a global symbol indicating that they are GPL-compatible. See
    the documentation and example extensions.

23. In POSIX mode, string comparisons use strcoll/wcscoll.

24. The option for raw sockets was removed, since it was never implemented.

25. Gawk now treats ranges of the form [d-h] as if they were in the C
    locale, no matter what kind of regexp is being used, and even if
    --posix.  The latest POSIX standard allows this, and the documentation
    has been updated.  Maybe this will stop all the questions about
    [a-z] matching uppercase letters.

26. PROCINFO["strftime"] now holds the default format for strftime().

27. Updated to latest infrastructure: Autoconf 2.68, Automake 1.11.1,
    Gettext 0.18.1, Bison 2.5.

28. Many code cleanups. Removed code for many old, unsupported systems:
	- Atari
	- Amiga
	- BeOS
	- Cray
	- MIPS RiscOS
	- MS-DOS with Microsoft Compiler
	- MS-Windows with Microsoft Compiler
	- NeXT
	- SunOS 3.x, Sun 386 (Road Runner)
	- Tandem (non-POSIX)
	- Prestandard VAX C compiler for VAX/VMS
	- Probably others that I've forgotten

29. If PROCINFO["sorted_in"] exists, for(iggy in foo) loops sort the
    indices before looping over them.  The value of this element
    provides control over how the indices are sorted before the loop
    traversal starts. See the manual.

30. A new isarray() function exists to distinguish if an item is an array
    or not, to make it possible to traverse multidimensional arrays.

31. asort() and asorti() take a third argument specifying how to sort.
    See the doc.

Update to 3.1.8:

Changes from 3.1.7 to 3.1.8
1. The zero flag no longer applies to %c and %s; apparently the standards
   changed at some point.

2. Updated to latest infrastructure: Autoconf 2.65, Automake 1.11.1,
   libtool 2.2.6b, Bison 2.4.2.

3. Failure to open a socket is no longer a fatal error.

4. dfa.h and dfa.c are now more-or-less in sync with GNU grep, for the first
   time in many years.

5. Gawk no longer includes its own copy of libsigsegv but it will use it if
   installed on the build system. The --disable-libsigsegv configure option
   is now gone.

6. The ' flag (%'d) is now just ignored on systems that can't support it.

7. Lots of bug fixes, see the ChangeLog.

Update to 3.1.7:

Changes from 3.1.6 to 3.1.7
1. Gawk now has support for z/OS (IBM S/390 architecture).

2. Gawk now handles multibyte strings better in [s]printf with field
   widths and such.

3. Gawk now uses libsigsegv to print a message before core dumping. This
   handles infinite recursion of an awk function a little better.
   Use of the library can be disabled at configure time with the
   --disable-libsigsegv option for unusual systems.

4. The handling of BINMODE is now somewhat more sane.

5. A getline from a directory is no longer fatal; instead it returns -1.

6. Per POSIX, special variable names (like FS) cannot be used as function
   parameter names.

7. The new -O / --optimize option enables simple constant folding on
   the parse tree during parsing.  We hope that with time the number
   of optimizations will increase.

8. Updated to the latest autotools: Autoconf 2.63, Automake 1.11,
   Libtool 2.2.6a, and Gettext 0.17. Also latest Bison: 2.4.1.

9. Some improvement in testing for isinf / isnan in builtin.c.

10. Improved the handling of `a = a b c' to be more general.

11. Locale handling for %'d should now work on certain non-Unix /
    non-Linux systems.

12. Lots of bugs fixed, see the ChangeLog for the details.

Changes 3.1.6:
1. `gawk 'program' /non/existant/file' no longer core dumps.
2. gawk now only uses the locale's decimal point
3. `gawk -v BINMODE=1 ...' works again.
4. Internal file names like `/dev/user' now work again. (Note that these
   file names are obsolete and will go away eventually.)
5. Problems with wide strings in non "C" locales have been straightened
   out everywhere.  (At least, we think so.)
6. Use of `ansi2knr' is no longer supported. Please use an ANSI C compiler.
7. Updated to Autoconf 2.61, Automake 1.10, and Gettext 0.16.1.
8. The getopt* and regex* files were synchronized with current GLIBC CVS.
   See the ChangeLog for the versions and minor edits made.
9. There are additional --lint-old warnings.
10. Gawk now uses getaddrinfo(3) to look up names and IP addresses. This
    allows the use of an IPv6 format address and paves the way for
    eventual addition of `/inet6/...' and `/inet4/...' hostnames.
11. We believe gawk to now be valgrind clean. At least when run against
    the test suite.
12. A number of issues dealing with the formatting and printing of very
    large numbers in integer formats have been dealt with and fixed.
13. Gawk now converts "+inf", "-inf", "+nan" and "-nan" into the corresponding
    magic IEEE floating point values. Only those strings (case independent)
    work.  With --posix, gawk calls the system strtod directly. You asked
    for it, you got it, you deal with it.
14. Defining YYDEBUG enables the -D command line option.
15. Gawk should now work out of the box on Tandem NSK/OSS systems.
16. Lint messages rationalized: many more of the messages are now printed
    only once, instead of every time they are encountered.
17. The strftime() function now accepts an optional third argument, which
    if non-zero or non-null, indicates that the time should be formatted
    as UTC instead of as local time.
18. The precedence of concatenation and `| getline' (in something like
    "echo " "date" | getline stuff) has been reverted to the earlier
    behavior and now once again matches Unix awk.
19. New configure time flag --disable-directories-fatal which causes
    gawk to silently skip directories on the command line.  This behavior
    is also enabled for --traditional, since it's what Unix awk does.
20. A new option, --use-lc-numeric, forces use of the locale's decimal
    point without the rest of the draconian restrictions imposed by
    --posix. This softens somewhat the stance taken in item 2.
21. Everything relevant has been updated to the GPL 3.
22. Array growth should be faster now, at no cost in space.
23. Lots more tests.
24. One new translation.
25. Various bugs fixed, see the ChangeLog for details.

Update to 3.1.5:

Changes from 3.1.4 to 3.1.5

1. The random() suite has been updated to a current FreeBSD version, which
   works on systems with > 32-bit ints.

2. A new option, `--exec' has been added. It's like -f but ends option
   processing.  It also disables `x=y' variable assignments, but not -v.
   It's needed mainly for CGI scripts, so that source code can't be
   passed in as part of the URL.

3. dfa.[ch] have been synced with GNU grep development.  This also fixes
   multiple regex matching problems in multibyte locales.

4. Updated to Automake 1.9.5.

5. Updated to Bison 2.0.

6. The getopt* and regex* files were synchronized with current GLIBC CVS.
   See the ChangeLog for the versions and minor edits made.

7. `configure --disable-nls' now disables just gawk's own translations.
   Gawk continues to work with the locale's numeric formatting.  This
   includes a bug fix in handling the printf ' flag (e.g., %'d).

8. Gawk is now multibyte aware.  This means that index(), length(),
   substr() and match() all work in terms of characters, not bytes.

9. Gawk is now smarter about parsing numeric constants in corner cases.

11. Not closing open redirections no longer causes gawk to exit non-zero.

10. The VMS port has been updated.

11. Changes from Andrew Schorr at the xmlgawk project to provide for
    open hooks from extensions are now included.  This will let the
    xmlgawk extension work in the standard gawk.

12. Updated to gettext 0.14.4. Gawk no longer includes its own copy
    of the gettext `intl' library, following current GNU practice to
    rely on there being an external version thereof.

13. A regexp of the form `//' will now generate a warning that it
    is not a C++ comment from --lint (awk.y).

14. The ^ and ^= operators with an integer exponent now use Exponentiation
    by Squaring. This simultaneously fixes a problem with ^= and a negative
    integer exponent.

15. length(array) now returns the number of elements in the array.  This is
    is a non-standard extension that will fail in POSIX mode.

16. Carriage return characters are now ignored in program source code.

17. Four new translations added.

18. Various minor bugs fixed. See the ChangeLog for the details.

Update to 3.1.4, convert to

Changes from 3.1.3 to 3.1.4

1. Gawk now supports the POSIX %F format, falling back to %f if the local
   system printf doesn't handle it.

2. Gawk now supports the ' flag in printf. E.g., %'d in a locale with thousands
   separators includes the thousands separator in the value, e.g. 12,345.

   This has one problem; the ' flag is next to impossible to use on the
   command line, without major quoting games.  Oh well, TANSTAAFL.

3. The dfa code has been reinstated; the performance degradation was
   just too awful.  Sigh.  (For fun, use `export GAWK_NO_DFA=1' to
   see the difference.)

4. The special case `x = x y' is now recognized in the grammar, and gawk
   now uses `realloc' to append the new value to the end of the existing
   one.  This can speed up the common case of appending onto a string.

5. The dfa code was upgraded with most of the fixes from grep 2.5.1, and
   the regex code was upgraded with GLIBC as mid-January 2004.  The regex
   code is faster than it was, but still not as fast as the dfa code, so
   the dfa code stays in.  The getopt code was also synced to current GLIBC.

6. Support code upgraded to Automake 1.8.5, Autoconf 2.59, and gettext 0.14.1.

7. When --posix is in effect, sub/gsub now follow the 2001 POSIX behavior.
   Yippee.  This is even documented in the manual.

8. Gawk will now recover children that have died (input pipelines, two-way
   pipes), upon detecting EOF from them, thus avoiding filling
   up the process table.  Open file descriptors are not recovered
   (unfortunately), since that could break awk semantics.  See the
   ChangeLog and the source code for the details.

9. Handling of numbers like `0,1' in non-American locales ought to
   work correctly now.

10. IGNORECASE is now locale-aware for characters with values above 128.
    The dfa matcher is now used for IGNORECASE matches too.

11. Dynamic function loading is better. The documentation has been improved
    and some new APIs for use by dynamic functions have been added.

12. Gawk now has a fighting chance of working on older systems,
    a la SunOS 4.1.x.

13. Issues with multibyte support on HP-UX are now resolved. `configure' now
    disables such support there, since it's not up to what gawk needs.

14. There are now even more tests in the test suite.

15. Various bugs fixed; see ChangeLog for the details.

Update to 3.1.3.
Changes from 3.1.2 to 3.1.3
1. Gawk now follows POSIX in handling of local numeric formats for
   input, output and number/string conversions.
2. Multibyte detection improved.  See README_d/README.multibyte for more
   info about multibyte locales.
3. Handling of `close' made more POSIX-compliant for POSIXLY_CORRECT,
   see the documentation.
4. The record reading code was redone, again.  This time it's much
   better. Really!
5. For RS = "\n" and RS = "", gawk now only sets RT when it has changed.
   This provides considerable performance improvement.
6. `match' now sets all the subscripts in the third argument array
   correctly, even if not all subexpressions matched.
7. Updated to Automake 1.7.5. renamed
8. C-style switch statements are available, but must be enabled at
   compile time via `configure --enable-switch'.  For 3.2 they'll be
   enabled by default. Thanks to Michael Benzinger for the initial
9. %c now always prints no more than one character, whatever
   precision is provided.
10. strtonum(<number>) now works again.
11. Gawk is now much better about scalar/array typing of global
    uninitiailzed variables passed as parameters. Once the parameter
    is then used one way or the other, the global var's type is
    adjusted accordingly.  Thanks to Stepan Kasal for the original
    (considerable) changes.
12. Dynamic function loading under Windows32 should now be possible. See
    README_d/README.pcdynamic. Thanks to Patrick T.J. McPhee for the changes.
13. Updated to gettext 0.12.1.
14. Gawk now follows historical practice and POSIX for the return
    value of `rand': It's now  0 <= N < 1.

Changes from 3.1.1 to 3.1.2
1. Loops of the form:
	for (iggy in foo)
   no longer leak memory.
2. gawk -v FIELDWIDTHS="..." now sets PROCINFO["FS"] correctly.
3. All builtin operations and functions should now fully evaluate their
   arguments so that side effects take place correctly.
4. Fixed a logic bug in gsub/gensub for matches to null strings that occurred
   later in the string after a nonnull match.
5. getgroups code now works on Ultrix again.
6. Completely new version of the full GNU regex engine now in place.
7. Argument parsing and variable assignment has been cleaned up.
8. An I/O bug on HP-UX has been documented and worked around. See
9. awklib/grcat should now compile correctly.
10. Updated to automake 1.7.3, autoconf 2.57 and gettext 0.11.5 ; thanks to
    Paul Eggert for the initial automake and autoconf work.
11. As a result of #6, removed the use of the dfa code from GNU grep.
12. It is now possible to use ptys for |& two-way pipes instead of
    pipes.  The basic plumbing for this was provided by Paolo Bonzini.
    To make this happen:
    	command = "unix command etc"
	PROCINFO[command, "pty"] = 1
	print ... |& command
	command |& getline stuff
    In other words, set the element in PROCINFO *before* opening the
    two-way pipe, and then gawk will use ptys instead of pipes.
    On systems without ptys or where all the ptys are in use, gawk
    will fall back to using plain pipes.
13. Fixed a regex matching across buffer boundaries bug, with a
    heuristic.  See io.c:rsre_get_a_record.
14. Profiling no longer dumps core if there are extension functions in place.
15. Grammar and scanner cleaned up, courtesy of Stepen Kasal, to hopefully
    once and for all fix the `/=' operator vs. `/=.../' regex ambiguity.
    Lots of other grammar simplifications applied, as well.
16. BINMODE should work now on more Windows ports.
17. Updated to bison 1.875.  Includes fix to bisonfix.sed script.
18. The NODE structure is now 20% (8 bytes) smaller (on x86, anyway), which
    should help conserve memory.
19. Builds not in the source directory should work again.
20. Arrays now use 2 NODE's per element instead of three. Combined with
    #18, (on the x86) this reduces the overhead from 120 bytes per element
    to just 64 bytes: almost a 50% improvement.
21. Programs that make heavy use of changing IGNORECASE should now be
    much faster, particularly if using a regular expression for FS or RS.
    IGNORECASE now correctly affects RS regex record splitting, as well.
22. IGNORECASE no longer affects single-character field splitting (FS = "c"),
    or single-character record splitting (RS = "c").
    This cleans up some weird behavior, and makes gawk better match the
    documentation, which says it only affects regex-based field splitting
    and record splitting.
    The documentation on this was improved, too.
23. The framework in test/ has been simplified, making it much easier to
    add new tests while keeping the size of reasonable. Thanks
    for this to Stepan Kasal.
24. --lint=invalid causes lint warnings only about stuff that's actually
    invalid.  This needs additional work.
25. More translations.
26. The `get_a_record' routine has been revamped (currently by splitting it
    into three variants).  This should improve long-term maintainability.
27. `match' now adds more entries to 3rd array arg:
	match("the big dog", /([a-z]+) ([a-z]+) ([a-z]+)/, data)
    fills in variables:
    	data[1, "start"], data[1, "length"], and so on.
28. New `asorti' function with same interface as `asort', but sorts indices
    instead of values.
29. Documentation updated to FDL 1.2.
30. New `configure' option --disable-lint at compile time disables lint
    checking.  With GCC dead-code-elimination, cuts almost 200K off the
    executable size on GNU/Linux x86.  Presumably speeds up runtime.
    Using this will cause some of the tests in the test suite to fail.
    This option may be removed at a later date.
31. Various minor cleanups, see the ChangeLog for details.

update to gawk-3.1.1.  While here, make this work again under NetBSD since
this gawk version is newer than the version shipped with 1.6 and has some
potentially useful features such as 2 way pipes which allow easy access to
the sort(1) command.

Changes from 3.1.0 to 3.1.1

1. Six new translations.

2. Having more than 4 different value for OFMT and/or CONVFMT now works.

3. The handling of dynamic regexes is now more more sane, esp. w.r.t.
   the profiling code.  The profiling code has been fixed in several

4. The return value of index("", "") is now 1.

5. Gawk should no longer close fd 0 in child processes.

6. Fixed test for strtod semantics and regenerated configure.

7. Gawk can now be built with byacc; an accidental bison dependency was

8. yyerror() will no longer dump core on long source lines.

9. Gawk now correctly queries getgroups(2) to figure out how many groups
   the process has.

10. New configure option to force use of included strftime, e.g. on
    Solaris systems. See `./configure --help' for the details. Replaced
    the included strftime.c with the one from textutils.

11. OS/2 port has been updated.

12. Multi-byte character support has been added, courtesy of IBM Japan.

13. The `for (iggy in foo) delete foo[iggy]' -> `delete foo' optimisation
    now works.

14. Upgraded to gettext 0.11.2 and automake 1.5.

15. Full gettext compatibility (new dcngettext function).

16. The O'Reilly copyedits and indexing changes for the documentation have
    been folded into the texinfo version of the manuals.

17. A humongously long value for the AWKPATH environment variable will no
    longer dump core.

18. Configuration / Installation issues have been straightened out in

Update to version 3.1.0 (lots of new features and bug fixes).

Enable this package for all platforms.

Added GAWK_ENABLE_PORTALS to mk/ to enable/disable gawk
handling file names that start with `/p/' as a 4.4 BSD type portal file.

Changes from 3.0.4 to 3.0.5:
- bug fix release only.

Changes from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6:
- bug fix release only.

Changes from 3.0.6 to 3.1.0:
- A new PROCINFO array provides info about the process. The non-I/O /dev/xxx
  files are now obsolete, and their use always generates a warning.
- A new `mktime' builtin function was added for creating time stamps. The
  `mktime' function written in awk was removed from the user's guide.
- New `--gen-po' option creates GNU gettext .po files for strings marked
  with a leading underscore.
- Gawk now completely interprets special file names internally, ignoring the
  existence of real /dev/stdin, /dev/stdout files, etc.
- The mmap code was removed. It was a worthwhile experiment that just
  didn't work out.
- The BINMODE variable is new; on non-UNIX systems it affects how gawk
  opens files for text vs. binary.
- Gawk no longer supports `next file' as two words.
- On systems that support it, gawk now sets the `close on exec' flag on all
  files and pipes it opens. This makes sure that child processes run via
  system() or pipes have plenty of file descriptors available.
- If `--posix' is in effect, newlines are not allowed after ?:.
- Weird OFMT/CONVFMT formats no longer cause fatal errors.
- Diagnostics about array parameters now include the parameter's name,
  not just its number.
- It is now possible to open a two-way pipe via the `|&' operator.
  See the discussion in the manual about putting `sort' into such a pipeline,
  though.  (NOTE!  This is borrowed from ksh: it is not the same as
  the same operator in csh!)
- The close() function now takes an optional second string argument
  that allows closing one or the other end of the two-way pipe to
  a co-process.  This is needed to use `sort' in a co-process, see
  the doc.
- If TCP/IP is available, special file names beginning with `/inet'
  can be used with `|&' for IPC.
- With `--enable-portals' on the configure command line, gawk will also
  treat file names that start with `/p/' as a 4.4 BSD type portal file,
  i.e., a two-way pipe for `|&'.
- Unrecognized escapes, such as "\q" now always generate a warning.
- The LINT variable is new; it provides dynamic control over the --lint
- Lint warnings can be made fatal by using --lint=fatal or `LINT = "fatal"'.
  Use this if you're really serious about portable code.
- A number of lint warnings have been added.  Most notably, gawk will
  detect if a variable is used before assigned to.  Warnings for
  when a string that isn't a number gets converted to a number are
  in the code but disabled; they seem to be too picky in practice.
  Also, gawk will now warn about function parameter names that shadow
  global variable names.
- It is now possible to dynamically add builtin functions on systems
  that support dlopen. This facility is not (yet) as portable or well
  integrated as it might be.  *** WARNING *** THIS FEATURE WILL EVOLVE!
- Profiling has been added!  A separate version of gawk, named pgawk, is
  built and generates a run-time execution profile.  The --profile option
  can be used to change the default output file.   In regular gawk, this
  option pretty-prints the parse tree.
- Gawk has been internationalized, using GNU gettext.  Translations for
  future distributions are most welcome.
- New asort() function for sorting arrays.  See the doc for details.
- The match function takes an optional array third argument to hold
  the text matched by parenthesized sub-expressions.
- The bit op functions and octal and hex source code constants are on by
  default, no longer a configure-time option.  Recognition of non-decimal
  data is now enabled at runtime with --non-decimal-data command line option.
- Internationalization features available at the awk level: new TEXTDOMAIN
  variable and bindtextdomain() and dcgettext() functions. printf formats
  may contain the "%2$3.5d" kind of notation for use in translations.  See
  the texinfo manual for details.
- The return value from close() has been rationalized.  Most notably,
  closing something that wasn't open returns -1 but remains non-fatal.
- The array effeciency change from 3.0.5 was reverted; the semantics were
  not right.  Additionally, index values of previously stored elements
  can no longer change dynamically.
- The new option --dump-variables dumps a list of all global variables and
  their final types and values to a file you give, or to `awkvars.out'.
- Gawk now uses a recent version of random.c courtesy of the FreeBSD
- The gawk source code now uses ANSI C function definitions (new style),
  with ansi2knr to translate code for old compilers.
- `for (iggy in foo)' loops should be more robust now in the face of
   adding/deleting elements in the middle; they loop over just the elements
   that are present in the array when the loop starts.
