./shells/zsh, The Z shell

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: pkgsrc-2018Q2, Version: 5.6, Package name: zsh-5.6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) which of the standard shells
most resembles the Korn shell (ksh), although it is not completely
compatible. It includes enhancements of many types, notably in the
command-line editor, options for customising its behaviour, filename
globbing, features to make C-shell (csh) users feel more at home and
extra features drawn from tcsh (another `custom' shell).

   Log message:
   Update to 5.6

   Upstream changes:
   Changes from 5.5.1-test-2 to 5.6

   CVE-2018-0502: Data from the second line of a #! script file might be passed to
   execve().  For example, in the following situation -
       printf '#!foo\nbar' > baz
   the shell might take "bar" rather than "foo" for the \ 
argv[0] to be passed to
   execve().  [ Reported by Anthony Sottile and Buck Evan. ]

   CVE-2018-13259: A shebang line longer than 64 characters would be truncated.
   For example, in the following situation:
       ( printf '#!'; repeat 64 printf 'x'; printf 'y' ) > foo
   the shell might execute x...x (64 repetitions) rather than x...xy (64 x's,
   one y).  [ Reported by Daniel Shahaf. ]

   Changes from 5.5.1 to 5.5.1-test-2

   Non-stop IEEE 754 arithmetic support - Inf and NaN are now returned
   from floating point operations where errors were printed before.
   Inf and NaN are also recognised in arithmetic expressions.

   In shell patterns, [[:blank:]] now honours the locale instead of
   matching exclusively on space and tab, like for the other POSIX
   character classes or for extended regular expressions.

   Nanosecond precision on file times is supported in the module
