coreutils-4.5.5 released

From: Jim Meyering
Subject: coreutils-4.5.5 released
Date: Mon, 03 Feb 2003 09:02:46 +0100

As usual, this is a mixed bag.
Mainly bug fixes, with a few new features thrown in.
Other than bug fixes, this release contains

  readlink: a new program, by Dmitry Levin
  cut: a new feature, by Jan Nieuwenhuizen,
  du: largely rewritten: this is the first step in making du
      work even on hierarchies that are deeper than the current
      recursive implementation can handle: ~30,000 levels.

The new version of du.c uses nftw.  The implementation of nftw comes
From GNU libc, but with a few added extensions.  This version of nftw
uses glibc's tsearch.c/search.h, so those too are included, also with
some changes to make them more portable.  So a few portability problems
may well remain.

* ls --dired produces correct byte offset for file names containing
  nonprintable characters in a multibyte locale
* du has been rewritten to use a variant of GNU libc's ftw.c
* du now counts the space associated with a directory's directory entry,
  even if it cannot list or chdir into that subdirectory.
* du -S now includes the st_size of each entry corresponding to a subdirectory
* rm on FreeBSD can once again remove directories from NFS-mounted file systems
* ls has a new option --dereference-command-line-symlink-to-dir, which
  corresponds to the new default behavior when none of -d, -l -F, -H, -L
  has been specified.
* ls dangling-symlink now prints `dangling-symlink'.
  Before, it would fail with `no such file or directory'.
* ls -s symlink-to-non-dir and ls -i symlink-to-non-dir now print
  attributes of `symlink', rather than attributes of their referents.
* Fix a bug introduced in 4.5.4 that made it so that ls --color would no
  longer highlight the names of files with the execute bit set when not
  specified on the command line.
* shred's --zero (-z) option no longer gobbles up any following argument.
  Before, `shred --zero file' would produce `shred: missing file argument',
  and worse, `shred --zero f1 f2 ...' would appear to work, but would leave
  the first file untouched.
* readlink: new program
* cut: new feature: when used to select ranges of byte offsets (as opposed
  to ranges of fields) and when --output-delimiter=STRING is specified,
  output STRING between ranges of selected bytes.
* rm -r can no longer be tricked into mistakenly reporting a cycle.
* when rm detects a directory cycle, it no longer aborts the entire command,
  but rather merely stops processing the affected command line argument.

ChangeLog entries:

2003-01-12  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        Lots of syntactic clean-up, mostly from Karl Berry.
        * install-sh: Use consistent indentation, two spaces per level.

        Use `test', not `['.
        Use `test -z "$var"', not `[ x"$var" = x ]'.
        Use `test -n "$var"', not `[ x"$var" != x ]'.
        Alphabetize case entries.
        Accept --help and --version options.
        Remove unnecessary `else :' clauses.
        Add a `Local variables' eval block to help emacs users update
        the time-stamp variable added above.

2002-12-20  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

2003-01-15  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>

        Change ls -H back to the way it was yesterday, since this is
        compatible with FreeBSD and the POSIX spec is confusing
        and somewhat contradictory.

        * doc/coreutils.texi (Which files are listed, General output
        formatting): Undo last change.

2003-01-15  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/stat.c: Include "file-type.h"
        (print_human_type): Remove function.

        (print_stat): Arrange so that field width and an alignment specifier
        are honored for the %A, %F, %x, %y, and %z formats.
        [%F]: Use file_type; this gives slightly different file type strings,
        e.g., `directory' instead of `Directory' and `regular file' or
        `regular empty file' instead of `Regular file'.
        Prompted by a report from Richard Dawe that the uses of
        S_IFSOCK and S_IFIFO in print_human_time were not portable
        to systems using e.g., DJGPP.

2003-01-31  Richard Dawe  <address@hidden>

        * src/stat.c (print_stat): Use S_ISLNK rather than an explicit

        processing other options.

        * GNUmakefile (TAR_OPTIONS): Set and export, in order to make
        tar archive easier to reproduce.

        Rewrite to perform directory traversal using nftw.

        * src/du.c: Include "dirname.h", "ftw.h", and "quotearg.h".

        (str_trunc, pop_dir, count_entry): Likewise.
        (du_files): Rewrite to use nftw.

2003-01-30  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/du/trailing-slash: Ensure that du/ftw follows a command-line
        symlink-to-directory with -L, even without the trailing slash.

2003-01-27  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/Makefile.am (check-misc): Check for st_blocks, too.

        * src/stat.c (print_stat): Use ST_NBLOCKS rather than `->st_blocks'.
        Reported by Richard Dawe.

2003-01-27  Andreas Schwab  <address@hidden>

        * src/ls.c (quote_name): Add fourth parameter, width, into which to
        store the screen columns, and return the number of bytes instead.
        (print_dir): Pass NULL as fourth parameter of quote_name.
        (print_name_with_quoting): Likewise.
        (length_of_file_name_and_frills): Get the width from the fourth
        parameter of quote_name instead of return value.

2003-01-27  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/ls.c (decode_switches): If `dired' is set without
        `format == long_format', then silently reset dired.  This doesn't
        change the behavior of ls (all prior uses of dired were protected
        by `&& format == long_format'), and lets us...
        (DIRED_INDENT): ... remove the `format == long_format' conjunct.
        (PUSH_CURRENT_DIRED_POS): Likewise.
        (main): Likewise.

2003-01-22  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/du/no-x: New test, for functionality added to lib/ftw.c.
        * tests/du/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add no-x.

2003-01-21  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/remove.c (remove_entry) [ROOT_CAN_UNLINK_DIRS
        && HAVE_STRUCT_DIRENT_D_TYPE]: If a file has d_type == DT_UNKNOWN
        it may still be a directory -- or not (e.g., with FreeBSD on an
        NFS-mounted file system), so resort to calling lstat to find out.
        Based on a patch by Michael van Elst.

        * tests/cp/same-file: Don't assume that the file owner username
        length is less than 9 in ls output: instead, omit that field
        altogether.  Reported by, and suggested fix from, Ferdinand.

2003-01-20  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/date/Test.pm (wide-fmt): New test to demonstrate that
        large format widths no longer cause strftime to infloop.

        * Makefile.maint (mail_gpg_sign_cookie): Remove now-unused definition.

2003-01-19  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/readlink.c: Include "canonicalize.h".

2003-01-18  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/ls.c (Dereference_symlink) [DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_SYMLINK_TO_DIR]:
        New member.
        (long_options): Add option --dereference-command-line-symlink-to-dir.
        (main): Make DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_SYMLINK_TO_DIR be the default,
        rather than DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_ARGUMENTS, when none of the
        -d, -F, -l options is specified.
        (decode_switches): Handle --dereference-command-line-symlink-to-dir.
        (gobble_file): Honor DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_SYMLINK_TO_DIR.
        Change --dereference-command-line (-H) to dereference *all*
        command line arguments, including broken symlinks.

2003-01-15  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>

        Change ls -H back to the way it was yesterday, since this is
        compatible with FreeBSD and the POSIX spec is confusing
        and somewhat contradictory.

        * src/ls.c (DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_ARGUMENTS): Change name back
        from DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_SYMLINK_TO_DIR, updating all uses.
        (long_options): Change the long option name back.
        (usage): Change the usage back.
        (gobble_file): When -H is specified, dereference a top-level
        arg even if it points to a non-directory.

2003-01-15  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/ls.c (gobble_file): Fall back on using lstat when required:
        when --dereference (-L) is not specified, and
        - when operating on a dangling symlink
        - when operating on command-line-symlink-to-directories
        This fixes numerous problems.  Here are examples:
        - `ls dangling-symlink' would fail with `no such file...'
        Now it prints `dangling-symlink'.
        - `ls -i symlink' would mistakenly print the inode of the referent.
        Now it prints the inode of the symlink.  Likewise for --size (-s).
        Based on a patch from Michael Stone.
        Reported by Deepak Goel as Debian bug #173793.

        Rename ls's --dereference-command-line (-H)
        option to   --dereference-command-line-symlink-to-dir.
        * src/ls.c [enum Dereference_symlink]
        DEREF_COMMAND_LINE_ARGUMENTS.  Update all uses.
        (long_options): Rename the long option.
        (usage): Say that --dereference-... changes how ls treats
        only symlinks to directories specified on the command line.

2003-01-14  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/ls/dangle: New file/test, for the above fix.
        * tests/ls/inode: Another new file/test, for the above fix.
        * tests/ls/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add dangle and inode.

        * src/ls.c (gobble_file): Fix a bug introduced in 4.5.4 that made it
        so that ls --color would no longer highlight the names of files with
        the execute bit set when not specified on the command line.
        Patch by Michael Stone.  Reported by Stephen Depooter as
        Debian bug 175135.

        * tests/ls-2/tests (color-exe): New test, for the above fix.

2003-01-13  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/shred/exact: Also test for just fixed bug with --zero.

        * src/shred.c (long_opts): --zero does not require an argument.
        Patch by Michael Stone.  Reported by Roland Turner as Debian bug 172019.

2003-01-12  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * Makefile.maint (cvs-update): Skip any file with local modifications.

2003-01-09  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        When selecting ranges of byte offsets (as opposed to ranges of fields)
        and when --output-delimiter=STRING is specified, output STRING between
        ranges of selected bytes.
        * src/cut.c (RANGE_START_SENTINEL): Define.
        (output_delimiter_specified): New global.
        (print_kth): Add parameter.  Adjust all callers.

        Based on a patch from Jan Nieuwenhuizen.

        * tests/cut/Test.pm: New tests for the above.

        * src/cut.c (set_fields): Make code agree with comment:
        Don't merge abutting ranges like 4- and 2-3.  This makes no
        difference currently, but is required to support an upcoming change.

2003-01-07  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * tests/touch/not-owner: New test, mostly extracted from fail-diag.
        * tests/touch/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add not-owner.
        * tests/touch/fail-diag: Remove the test for non-owner diagnostic.

        Suggestion from Michael Stone.

        * tests/touch/fail-diag: Fix typo: s/ld/ls/.

2003-01-04  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/remove.c: Include <setjmp.h>
        (struct dirstack_state) [current_arg_jumpbuf]: New member.

        from mv: s/missing file arguments/missing file argument/.
        With --target-directory=DIR, cp and mv work with a single file argument.
        Reported by Karl Berry.
