./textproc/gsed, GNU implementation of sed, the POSIX stream editor

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.8, Package name: gsed-4.8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GNU implementation of the POSIX stream editor `sed'.

Sed (streams editor) isn't really a true text editor or text
processor. Instead, it is used to filter text, i.e., it takes text
input and performs some operation (or set of operations) on it and
outputs the modified text. Sed is typically used for extracting part
of a file using pattern matching or substituting multiple occurrences
of a string within a file.

Log message:
gsed: update to 4.8.

* Noteworthy changes in release 4.8 (2020-01-14) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  "sed -i" now creates temporary files with correct umask (limited to \ 
u=rwx).
  Previously sed would incorrectly set umask on temporary files, resulting
  in problems under certain fuse-like file systems.
  [bug introduced in sed 4.2.1]

** Release

  distribute gzip-compressed tarballs once again

** Improvements

  a year's worth of gnulib development, including improved DFA performance

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
gsed: update to 4.7.

* Noteworthy changes in release 4.7 (2018-12-20) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  Some uses of \b in the C locale and with the DFA matcher would fail, e.g.,
  the following would mistakenly print "123-x" instead of "123":
    echo 123-x|LC_ALL=C sed 's/.\bx//'
  Using a multibyte locale or certain regexp constructs (some ranges,
  backreferences) would avoid the bug.  [bug introduced in sed 4.6]

Log message:
Update to 4.6

Changelog:
* Noteworthy changes in release 4.6 (2018-12-19) [stable]

** Improvements

  sed now prints a clear error message when r/R/w/W (and s///w) commands
  are missing a filename. Previously, w/W commands would fail with confusing
  error message, while r/R would be a silent no-op.

  sed now uses fully-buffered output (instead of line-buffered) when
  writing to files. This should noticeably improve performance of "sed -i"
  and other write commands.
  Buffering can be disabled (as before) with "sed -u".

  sed in non-cygwin windows environments (e.g. mingw) now properly handles
  '\n' newlines in -b/--binary mode.

** Bug fixes

  sed no longer accesses invalid memory (heap overflow) when given invalid
  backreferences in 's' command [bug#32082, present at least since sed-4.0.6].

  sed no longer adds extraneous NUL when given s/$//n command.
  [related to bug#32271, present since sed-4.0.7]

  sed no longer accesses invalid memory (heap overflow) with s/$//n regexes.
  [bug#32271, present since sed-4.3].

** New Features

  New option, --debug: print the input sed script in canonical form
  and annotate program execution.

Log message:
gsed: update to 4.5.

* Noteworthy changes in release 4.5 (2018-03-31) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  sed now fails when matching very long input lines (>2GB).
  Before, sed would silently ignore the regex without indicating an
  error. [Bug present at least since sed-3.02]

  sed no longer rejects comments and closing braces after y/// commands.
  [Bug existed at least since sed-3.02]

  sed -E --posix no longer ignores special meaning of '+','?','|' .
  [Bug introduced in the original implementation of --posix option in
  v4.1a-5-gba68fb4]

  sed -i now creates selinux context based on the context of the symlink
  instead of the symlink target. [Bug present since at least sed-4.2]
  sed -i --follow-symlinks remains unchanged.

  sed now treats the sequence '\x5c' (ASCII 92, backslash) as literal
  backslash character, not as an escape prefix character.
  [Bug present since sed-3.02.80]
  Old behavior:
     $ echo z | sed -E 's/(z)/\x5c1/' # identical to 's/(z)/\1/'
     z
  New behavior:
     $ echo z | sed -E 's/(z)/\x5c1/'
     \1

Log message:
Updated gsed to 4.4.

* Noteworthy changes in release 4.4 (2017-02-03) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  sed could segfault when invoked with specific combination of newlines
  in the input and regex pattern. [Bug introduced in sed-4.3]
