[GNU ELPA] Xr version 1.24

From: ELPA update
Subject: [GNU ELPA] Xr version 1.24
Date: Tue, 01 Aug 2023 17:03:28 -0400

Version 1.24 of package Xr has just been released in GNU ELPA.
You can now find it in M-x list-packages RET.

Xr describes itself as:

  Convert string regexp to rx notation

## Summary:

                  xr -- Emacs regexp parser and analyser

  XR converts Emacs regular expressions to the structured rx form, thus
  being an inverse of rx. It can also find mistakes and questionable
  constructs inside regexp strings.

  It can be useful for:

  - Migrating existing code to rx form
  - Understanding what a regexp string really means
  - Finding errors in regexp strings

  It can also parse and find mistakes in skip-sets, the regexp-like
  arguments to skip-chars-forward and skip-chars-backward.

  The xr package can be used interactively or by other code as a library.

  * Example

    (xr-pp "\\`\\(?:[^^]\\|\\^\\(?: \\*\\|\\[\\)\\)")


    (seq bos 
         (or (not (any "^"))
             (seq "^"
                  (or " *" "["))))

## Recent NEWS:

Version 1.24:
- \w and \W are now translated to (syntax word) and (not (syntax word)),
  instead of [[:word:]] and [^[:word:]] which are not exact equivalents.
- Repetition operators are now literals after \`. For example,
  \`* is now (seq bos "*"), not (* bos), because this is how Emacs works.
- New lint check: find [A-z] (range between upper and lower case)
- New `checks' argument to xr-lint, used to enable these new checks:
  - Detect [+-X] and [X-+] (range to/from '+')
  - Detect [\\t] etc (escape sequences in character alternative)
  - Detect \(:?...\), as a possible typo for \(?:...\)
  - Detect a\|b that could be [ab] which is more efficient
Version 1.23:
- Represent explicitly the gap in ranges from ASCII to raw bytes:
  "[A-\xbb]" becomes (any "A-\x7f\x80-\xbb") because that is how
  Emacs regexps work. This also suppresses some false positives
  in `xr-lint' and `xr-skip-set-lint'.

- Added filename-specific checks; new PURPOSE argument to `xr-lint'
- Warn about wrapped subsumption, like \(A*C[AB]*\)+
- Improved scope and accuracy of all subsumption checks
- Warn about anchors in conflict with other expressions, like \(A$\)B
Version 1.18:
- Fix test broken in Emacs 26

- Improved skip set checks
Version 1.8:
- Improved skip set checks
Version 1.7:
- Parse skip-sets, adding `xr-skip-set', `xr-skip-set-pp' and
