We plan to release coreutils-8.31 in the coming week
so any testing you can do on various different systems between now and then
would be most welcome.


You can download the coreutils snapshot in xz format (5.3 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = bf291b5703be8c26b74fee8b4508cd0a


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.30.87-66e2d/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

Failures are reported and details are in tests/test-suite.log


Changes since the previous snapshot are:

    tests: tail-2/pipe-f: avoid false failure closing stdout

    * tests/tail-2/ Check closing stdout with >&-
    is effective, which avoids a false failure on NetBSD 7.1

    tests: tac-2-nonseekable: ensure we don't block indefinitely

    * tests/misc/ Add a timeout to both
    protect and check whether we can close stdin correctly.

    tests: id/zero: avoid false failure due to sed differences

    * tests/id/ sed on OSX will output a \n even
    if the input doesn't have a \n on the last "line".
    So ensure we always have a trailing '\n' to avoid the disparity.

    tests: test-N: fix false positives on some systems

    Testing by Assaf Gordon on OSX showed the atime wasn't
    being updated when explicitly set back in time.
    Also Debian 8.11 / mips64 was seen to not update the
    mtime when truncating an empty file.

    * tests/misc/ Isolate from different timestamping
    behaviors of various (file) systems, by correlating
    the timestamps with stat(1) before using `test -N`.

    doc: replace @hashchar{} with actual hash character

    Very old makeinfo-4.13 fails with:
      ./doc/coreutils.texi:2286: Unknown command `hashchar'.
      ./doc/coreutils.texi:2286: Misplaced {.
      ./doc/coreutils.texi:2286: Misplaced }.

    Reported Bernhard Voelker in .

    * doc/coreutils.texi (basenc invocation): Replace @hashchar{} with
    actual hash character.  The special syntax is only required
    when referring to #line directives.

    build: avoid statx related build failure on AIX

    * src/stat.c (get_birthtime): Check also for STATX_BTIME define,
    as a different statx is available on AIX 7.2.

    tests: avoid failure on FreeBSD

    * tests/misc/ FreeBSD and OS X don't
    treat non breaking space as printable characters.
    So use wc -L to determine printability before
    testing non breaking space functionality.

    build: fix env build where SIGNUM_BOUND is not constant

    * src/env.c (initialize_signals): A new function to initialize
    the signals array on the heap, to avoid a build failure on
    opensolaris, where SIGNUM_BOUND is not a constant.
