- Reported by Eric Backus.
-

-
- `od -t f8' didn't work.
- This bug was introduced with my change of 2000-10-22 (textutils-2.0.8).
- * src/od.c (ulonglong_t): Move declaration to precede new use.
- [enum size_spec] (N_SIZE_SPECS): New member.
- (width_bytes): Add initializer corresponding to ulonglong_t type.
- (struct assert_width_bytes_matches_size_spec_decl): Declare.
- Based on a patch from Tony Kocurko.
-
-2002-04-29 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>
-
- Use ENABLE_NLS only for gettext-related stuff, not also for
- setlocale-related stuff. From a patch suggested by Bruno
- Haible.
-
- Since setlocale is now almost universal, this patch also
- removes some of the optimizations that clutter up the code and
- which don't help all that much even on hosts that lack
- setlocale.
-
- * lib/hard-locale.c: Upgrade to version used in GNU Diffutils 2.8.1.
- * m4/prereq.m4 (jm_PREREQ_HARD_LOCALE): Check for stdlib.h.
- Do not check for alloca.h (no longer used) or stdbool.h (was never
- used?). Add AM_C_PROTOTYPES since hard-locale.h uses it.
-
- * src/sys2.h (HAVE_SETLOCALE): Define to 0 if not defined.
- * src/comm.c (compare_files): Replace #ifdef ENABLE_NLS
- with if (HAVE_SETLOCALE).
- * src/join.c (keycmp): Likewise.

- * src/join.c (hard_LC_COLLATE): Likewise.
- * src/sort.c (hard_LC_COLLATE): Likewise.
-
- * src/comm.c (main): Always initialize hard_LC_COLLATE.
- Put initialization next to other locale-related stuff.
- * src/join.c (main): Likewise.
- * src/sort.c (main): Likewise.
-
- * src/sort.c: Include <langinfo.h> even if ! ENABLE_NLS.
- (decimal_point, th_sep): Depend on HAVE_SETLOCALE, not ENABLE_NLS.
- (main): Likewise.
- (MONTHTAB_CONST): Remove; all uses removed.
- (struct_month_cmp, inittables): Do not depend on ENABLE_NLS.
- (main): hard_LC_TIME locale does not depend on ENABLE_NLS.
-
-2002-04-29 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>
-
- * src/tail.c (parse_obsolescent_option): Do not limit the maximum
- line/byte count (when specified via obsolete option syntax) to be
- less than ULONG_MAX on systems where OFF_T_MAX is larger.
-
-2002-04-28 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>
-
- * src/tail.c (tail_forever): Do not treat
- max_n_unchanged_stats_between_opens specially (as if it were
- infinite) if it has its maximal value. Similarly for
- max_n_consecutive_size_changes_between_opens.
-
-2002-04-28 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>
-
- Avoid new warnings from gcc.
- * src/pr.c [struct COLUMN] <name>: Declare member to be const.
- (init_fps): Declare local variable `firstname' to be const.

- (AC_CONFIG_FILES): Remove intl/Makefile.

-
- * src/Makefile.am (LDADD): List ../lib/libfetish.a both before
- and after @LIBINTL@. Thanks to Paul Eggert for the fix and to
- Bruno Haible for diagnosing the problem.
-
-2002-03-16 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>

- * src/Makefile.am (datadir): Don't override $(datadir)
- which might be set by --datadir and different from $(prefix)/share.
- Patch from Albert Chin-A-Young.
-
-2002-03-10 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>
-
- * configure.ac (AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE): Specify the required version
- of automake (1.6), and options (gnits dist-bzip2), rather than...
- * Makefile.am (AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS): ...here. Remove definition.
-
-2002-03-09 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>

-
- * Makefile.am (EXTRA_DIST): Add config/config.rpath.
-
-2002-02-23 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>
-
- * src/cat.c (simple_cat, cat, main): Use char * rather than
- unsigned char *, to avoid some technical violations of the C
- standard, and to avoid the need for casts. I guess the
- unsigned char * was probably there for improved performance
- with ancient compilers, but the code wasn't using the
- unsignedness any more.
- Reported by Nelson H. F. Beebe.
-
- (cat): int -> size_t for full_write arg. This doesn't
- fix any bugs since the buffer size is small, but it makes
- the code a bit clearer.
-
-2002-02-18 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>
-
- * Version 2.0.21.
-
- * tests/tail/Test.pm: For tests matching /^(obs|err-[134])/,
- put _POSIX2_VERSION=199209 in the environment, so the tests succeed
- even when the environment would have contained _POSIX2_VERSION=200112.
- * tests/uniq/Test.pm (test_vector): Rename tests of obsolete usage
- to have prefix of `obs'. Adjust environment for those tests as above.
-
- * tests/mk-script: When getting input via a pipe, apply the
- environment settings to the command in question, not to `cat'.
- No longer allow more than one element in the $Test::env or
- $Test::env_default arrays. No caller used that feature.

-
-2002-02-15 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>

+ * src/copy.c: When moving a set of N hard-linked files between

+ link to that same file, mv would mistakenly copy the file, rather
+ than hard-linking it to the other(s). That happens because when the

-
- * Makefile.maint (po-check): Check for uses of _() not just in .c

-
- Ideally, there would be just one translation for all --help

- differed only in the number of blanks between the option name
- and the description. Someday gettext may be smart enough
- to merge such strings and to reconstruct the proper spacing at

+ Remove xstat function pointer member. The way it was used was not

-
- Avoid the need for a copy of the input file when the input and
- output overlap, e.g. 'sort F -o F'. With -m, though, a copy
- is still needed sometimes.
-
- * doc/textutils.texi: 'sort F -o F' no longer needs to copy F.
-
- * src/sort.c: Do not include closeout.h.
- (xfopen): Use stdout if *how != 'r'.
- (mergefps): Remove FPS arg.
- Open all input files, and close all files when done.

- All callers changed.
- (merge): New arg MAX_MERGE. All callers changed.
- (sort): For "sort F -o F", close the input before opening the output.
- (main): Do not use close_stdout; 'sort' and 'merge' now close stdout.
- (This also fixes a close-stdout-twice bug.)
- Remove test for overlapping input and output files, as 'sort' no longer
- needs to worry about overlap, and 'merge' checks for overlap itself.
- Use first_same_file to inform 'merge' about how much to merge at
- the top level, to avoid overlap.

-
- * src/sort.c (die): New function.
- (create_temp_file, xfopen, xfclose, write_bytes, sort_buffer_size,

- in behavior is that write_bytes and the final close used to say "write

-
- 'sort' race condition fixes.
-
- Defend against a DoS attack where someone else creates a
- temporary file with the same name as ours. Use mkstemp to do
- this, supplying our own mkstemp if the system doesn't have one.
-
- Also, fix a race condition during cleanup on hosts without

- xtmpfopen and tempname. All callers changed.
- Use mkstemp to create the file.
- (sighandler): On hosts without sigaction, ignore signals while
- cleaning up, instead of letting them interrupt cleanup.
- (main): Initialize caught_signals. On hosts with sigaction, block all
- caught signals while handling one. Remove duplicate code.

-2001-02-18 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>
-
- Fix a race condition: freed storage accessed during a signal handler.
-
- * src/sort.c (struct tempnode.next): Now volatile.
- (zaptemp): Free the file name after removing it from the temp list,
- not before, because a signal can arrive between the two actions
- and cleanup () traverses the list.
-
-2001-02-18 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>
-
- Check for input size, and do not overallocate memory.
- Also check for memory quotas.
-
- Revamp storage management so that line tables and character data are
- taken from the same buffer. Line tables are now in reverse order,
- since they grow down while the character data grow up.
-
- * src/sort.c:
- (<sys/resource.h>): Include if HAVE_SYS_RESOURCE_H.
- (struct rlimit, getrlimit): Define a replacement if RLIMIT_DATA
- is not defined.
- (RLIMIT_AS): Define to RLIMIT_DATA if not defined.
- (struct lines): Remove.
- (struct buffer): New members nlines, line_bytes, eof.
- Remove member newline_free; no longer needed, since the code no longer
- runs out of line table space.
- (SORTALLOC_MIN, SORTALLOC_DEFAULT_MIN): Remove.
- (sort_size): Renamed from sortalloc; now applies to the sum of the
- character data and the line table, not just the character data.
- (MIN_SORT_SIZE, INPUT_FILE_SIZE_GUESS): New macros.
- (linelength): remove.
- (specify_sort_size): Don't worry about the distinction between the
- character data and the line table; that is now the caller's
- responsibility.
- (default_sort_size): Return the value, instead of being executed for
- side effect. Return half of available memory, or 1/16 of total memory,
- whichever is greater; except do not exceed 1/2 of quota.
- (sort_buffer_size): New function.
- (initbuf): New arg LINE_BYTES. Ensure that the line array is properly
- aligned. Initialize the new set of struct buffer members.
- (buffer_linelim): New function.
- (fillbuf): Return int, not size_t, since the callers merely care
- whether the result is nonzero. New arg FILE so that error messages
- can report the file name. Keep track of eof. Initialize the line
- table too, taking its memory from the input buffer's memory; this
- subsumes the old findlines function and removes the need for worrying
- about running out of line table entries.
- (checkfp, mergefps, sortlines, merge, sort): Adjust to the new storage
- management regime, in particular the fact that line tables are now
- filled in by fillbuf and are in reverse order.
- (checkfp): Now takes char *, not const char *, since subroutines
- require that now. Rewrite to avoid lint and duplicate code.
- If line length alloc calculation overflows,
- simply allocate enough memory to hold the line.
- (mergefps): New arg FILES, used for buffer size calculation and error
- messages. Rewrite to avoid lint. Do not loop if savealloc*2
- overflows.
- (mergefps, merge): Zap temporary files eagerly rather than lazily;
- this is needed because we now pass FILES to mergefps.
- (sortlines): Args now point at end of arrays, not at beginnings.
- (sort): Do not allocate temporary line array for sortlines;
- instead, take the space from the same buffer.
- (main): Adjust to sort_size and default_sort_size changes.

+ enormous. Also, clean up the code a bit by removing duplicate code.
+
+ * src/ls.c (init_column_info): Remove forward decl; no longer needed.

+ (print_many_per_line, print_horizontal): Use it.

+
+ csplit cleanup.
+
+ * doc/coreutils.texi (csplit invocation):
+ The regexp offset need not have a sign; POSIX requires support
+ for signless offets.
+
+ Be more careful about int widths. For example, remove some
+ arbitrary limits by replacing 'unsigned' with 'size_t',
+ 'uintmax_t', etc. Use standard bool rather than a homegrown type.
+ * lib/Makefile.am (libfetish_a_SOURCES): Add xstrtoimax.c.
+ * src/csplit.c (FALSE, TRUE, boolean): Remove. All uses changed
+ to <stdbool.h> usage.
+ (struct control): offset is now intmax_t, not int.
+ repeat_forever is now bool, not int.
+ (struct cstring): len is now size_t, not unsigned int.
+ (struct buffer_record): bytes_alloc, bytes_used, num_lines are now

+ uintmax_t, not unsigned.
+ (hold_count, control_used): Now size_t, not unsigned.

+ get_format_width, get_format_prec, max_out):

+ or int.
+ (get_first_line_in_buffer, find_line, write_to_file,
+ handle_line_error, process_line_count, regexp_error, process_regexp,
+ split_file):
+ File line, byte, and repetition counts are now uintmax_t, not unsigned.
+ (check_for_offset): Don't require a sign before the offset.
+ Use xstrtoimax to do the real work.
+ (extract_regexp): Remove harmful cast of size to unsigned.
+ 256 -> 1<<CHAR_BIT, for clarity.
+ (get_format_flags): Return at most 3, to avoid worries about overflow.
+
+ (bytes_to_octal_digits): Remove.
+
+ (cleanup): Don't check whether output_stream is NULL, since
+ close_output_file does that for us.
+
+ (new_line_control, create_new_buffer): Use "foo *p = xmalloc
+ (sizeof *p);" instead of the more long-winded alternatives.
+
+ (get_new_buffer): Use O(1) algorithm for resizing a buffer
+ to a much larger size, instead of an O(N) algorithm.
+
+ (process_regexp): Use plain NULL rather than casted 0.
+
+ (make_filename): Use %u, not %d, to format unsigned file number.
+
+ (new_control_record): Use xrealloc exclusively, since it handles
+ NULL reliably.
-2000-07-01 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>
+ (extract_regexp): Change misspelled word in diagnostic.
- * src/cut.c: Change type of global, field_1_bufsize, from int to size_t.
+ (get_format_width): Even if a minimum field width is specified,
+ allow room for enough octal digits to represent the value of
+ the maximum representible integer. This fixes a potential
+ buffer overrun. Calculate this room at compile-time, not
+ at run-time; this removes the need for bytes_to_octal_digits.
+ Check for overflow; this removes a FIXME.
-2000-06-29 Jim Meyering <meyering@lucent.com>
+ (get_format_prec): Don't allow precision to be signed; it's

- * src/tr.c (find_bracketed_repeat): Add a cast to suppress a warning.

- (sortalloc, mergealloc): Increase by 1, for trailing byte.
-
-1999-05-20 Jim Meyering <meyering@ascend.com>
-
- * tests/sort/Test.pm: Add test case from Paul Eggert.

-
-1999-05-18 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>

-
-1999-05-11 Paul Eggert <eggert@twinsun.com>
-
- * src/sort.c: Don't autodetect the locale of numbers and
- months, as this conflicts with POSIX.2 and is tricky to boot.
-
- (FLOATING_COMMA, NLS_STRNCMP, NLS_MAX_GROUPS,
- NLS_ONE_CHARACTER_STRING): Remove macros no longer used.
-
- (nls_grouping, nls_fraction_found, nls_month_found, nos_monthtab,

- longer used.

- nls_month_is_either_locale, nls_numeric_format): Remove functions no

- (MONTHS_PER_YEAR): Renamed from NLS_NUM_MONTHS. All uses changed.
- (struct_month_cmp): Renamed from nls_sort_month_comp. All uses changed.
- Use strcmp, not strcoll, since the user doesn't care about collating
- here.
-
- (inittables): Read locale data into monthtab, rather than modifying a
- separate month table and futzing with indirection. Do not worry about
- colliding months, since we no longer autodetect month locale.
-
- (fraccompare): Don't set no-longer-used variable nls_fraction_found.
-
- (getmonth): Use strncmp to compare months, since user doesn't care
- about collating here. Fix bug where code incorrectly assumed that
- strlen (monthtab[lo].name) == strlen (monthtab[ix].name).
-
- (keycompare, main): Don't autodetect month locale.
-
- (compare): Don't use NLS_MEMCP in code that can't be executed if
- need_locale is false, as NLS_MEMCP is equivalent to memcmp in that
- case.
-
- (sort, insertkey, main): Don't autodetect numeric locale.

- (nls_set_fraction): Arg is now char, not unsigned char.
- Set th_sep to CHAR_MAX + 1 if there is no thousands separator.
- (numcompare): Don't convert to unsigned char unless necessary.

-
-1999-05-04 Jim Meyering <meyering@ascend.com>
-

- errors when compiling with Irix4's cc. Reported by Kaveh Ghazi.
-
- * src/tsort.c (search_item): Use `1' instead of `+1'. The latter

- * aclocal.m4 (fp_PROG_CC_STDC): Include sys/stat.h in test program
- so that DYNIX/ptx V4.1.3 doesn't use `-Xc -D__EXTENSIONS__' -- with

- With help from Marcus Daniels.
+ Giving nl an invalid STYLE argument (in --header-numbering=STYLE (-h),

-Wed Jul 3 23:21:09 1996 Jim Meyering <meyering@na-net.ornl.gov>
+ The S_MAGIC_... names shouldn't be maintained in two places (prior

+ Handle command line option arguments larger than 2^31.
+ This allows e.g., splitting into files of size 2GB and larger,
+ and running split --lines=N with N=2^31 or more.
+ But for --line-bytes=N, the restriction that N <= SIZE_MAX
+ remains (for now), due to the way it is implemented.

- * tac.c: Likewise.
- * src/Makefile.in (OBJECTS): Reflect that all of the above
- now use prototypes.
+ * Makefile.maint (prev_version_file): Don't use ?= for this particular
+ assignment, since it causes trouble with old versions of GNU make
+ (e.g. 3.76.1). The other uses of `?=' are inoffensive. Details here.
+ http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-coreutils/2003-03/msg00028.html
+ Patch from Alexandre Duret-Lutz.

- * md5sum.c (md5_check): Use the same message format when there is
- a single file and it gets a read error or checksum mismatch as when
- there are more. Write that warning to standard error, not standard
- output. Suggestions from Greg Troxel (gdt@b-sgi.bbn.com).
+ * tests/du/slink: Relax the test for the `local'ness of a file system,
+ so that now it works also for tmpfs.
-Thu Oct 26 00:11:35 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
+ * tests/du/hard-link: Transform output from first du, so that this

- * Makefile.in (DISTFILES): Add mkdep-Makefile.
- * doc/Makefile.in (mostlyclean): Also remove *.info.
+ * tests/du/basic: Make the test file larger than 64 bytes, so that

+2003-03-10 Jim Meyering <jim@meyering.net>
- * od.c: Indent cpp directives.
+ Don't segfault for a negative field width or precision in format string.
+ Note that this is just a stopgap fix. The longer term solution may
+ involve adapting bash's builtins/printf.def.
- * tr.c (BEGIN_STATE): Use INT_MAX - 1 so as not to interfere
- with large repeat counts.
- (struct E_string): New struct.

- (monthtab, keyhead): Separate variable dcls from type dcls.
+ * tests/Makefile.am (evar-check): Check for POSIXLY_CORRECT not as a
+ shell variable, but only in the environment. With /bin/sh->bash, the

- list item separators, per POSIX spec.
- (prjoin): Rewrite loop that iterates over field specs.
- Handle case in which file spec is 0.
+ * tests/rm/fail-2eperm: Rather than simply using the first non-root
+ user name, make sure that the selected user name has a usable shell.
+ Reported by Paul Jarc.
-Sun Oct 8 22:41:15 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
+ Before, when using shred on a device, one had to specify --exact,
+ or be careful to choose a size that would not be rounded up and
+ exceed the maximum value; that could result in a failure of
+ the final write.
+ * src/shred.c (do_wipefd): --exact is now the default for non-regular
+ files. Suggestion from Ben Elliston.
+ (usage): Say it.
- * strpbrk.c: New file.
- * lib/Makefile.in (SOURCES): Add strpbrk.c.
- Remove bcopy.c.
+ * tests/misc/tty-eof: Require at least version 1.11 of Expect.pm.

-Fri Oct 6 23:10:01 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
+ * src/du.c (process_file): If a file's size is not being counted
+ e.g., because it's a hard link to a file we've already counted,
+ then don't print a line for it.
- * join.c (main): Report `too few/many non-option arguments'
- then print --help output rather than just the latter.
- Properly interpret obsolescent usage like `join -o 2.1 2.1 2.2'.
- (usage): Describe POSIX -1, -2 options and deprecate -j* ones
+ * tests/du/hard-link: New test for the above-fixed bug.
+ * tests/du/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add hard-link.
- * join.c (usage): Move to precede all other functions.

+ and make the two-array approach work.
- * join.c: Protoize.
+ * tests/du/basic: Correct/add tests for the above fix.
+ Set LC_ALL, etc., now that we use sort.
+ Check the block/size of a small file, too.
+ Correct expected results for simple dir1/dir2/file case.
+ Add another test of du -S.

- * csplit.c, sort.c, tac.c: Test SA_INTERRUPT, not _POSIX_VERSION,
- to determine whether `sigaction' functions are available.
- Reported by Paul Nevai <nevai@ops.mps.ohio-state.edu>.
- Fix suggested by Karl Berry.
+ Avoid build failure with gcc on hppa1.1-hp-hpux10.20 (see GCC PR
+ middle-end/9986). As one of GCC's optimizations, it transforms a
+ fputs_unlocked call to a fputc_unlocked call when the string is
+ one character long. However, hpux doesn't have fputc_unlocked.
- * md5sum.c (main): Declare counter, N_STRINGS, to be an integral
- type, not `char'.
+ * expr.c (usage): Use putchar, not fputs, to output a single character.
+ * ls.c (dired_dump_obstack): Likewise.
+ * ptx.c (output_one_tex_line, output_one_dumb_line): Likewise.
+ * stat.c (print_it): Likewise.

- to avoid warnings from `gcc -Wall' about comparing signed and
- unsigned types.
- (set_fields): Use memset (not open coded loop) to initialize array.

+ Reported by Nelson Beebe.
- * md5sum.c (main): Fail if either --verbose or --quiet is specified

- to avoid warning.
+2003-02-28 Jim Meyering <jim@meyering.net>

+ existing destination file, unlink that file and try again.
+ Reported by Iida Yosiaki.
- * sort.c (check): Print `disorder on...' message on standard error,
- not stdout. This is a minor concession to POSIX which says
- `no output shall be produced...'.
+ * tests/mv/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add hard-2.
+ * tests/mv/hard-2: New test for the above-fixed bug.
+ Based on a test case from Iida Yosiaki.

-Wed Jul 26 22:54:48 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
+ * tests/du/basic: Don't test du's -b option here. Directory byte

- * md5sum.c [OPENOPTS]: Depend explicitly on BINARY.
- (md5_file): Take a new parameter, MD5_RESULT, and no longer
- generate output.
- (md5_check): Invoke md5_file instead of calling fopen directly.
- When giving a diagnostic for a line with invalid format, also report
- the line number.
- (main): Generate output after a successful md5_file call.
- [in many places]: Upon detection of an error, rather than exiting

-
-Mon Jul 24 21:48:26 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * tail.c (tail_bytes) [from_start]: For regular files, seek
- relative to the initial input file pointer position, not
- necessarily from the beginning of the file.
- [!from_start]: Don't back up past the initial position of the
- input file pointer.
- (tail_lines): Call file_lines only if FD refers to a regular file
- with its file pointer positioned at beginning of file. Otherwise,
- call pipe_lines. This is a kludge. Once there's a decent test
- suite, fix this properly.
- Before, (echo 1; echo 2) > k; sh -c 'read x; tail' < k
- would output both lines of the input file even though the first had
- already been read. Reported by John Roll (john@panic.harvard.edu).

-Fri Jul 21 01:21:49 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * md5sum.c (md5_file): New function -- extracted from main.
- (main): Call the new function instead of doing all that in an
- if-stmt. Always use "%s" format rather than raw filename as
- format argument in printf-style functions like error. Otherwise,
- filenames containing `%' are likely to lose.
- Remove all mention of `old format'.
- (split_3): No longer parse the `new format.' There is only one
- valid format now: the compatible one.
-
- * lib/Makefile.in (SOURCES): Add md5.c.
- (OBJECTS): Add md5.o.
- (DISTFILES): Add md5.h.
- (md5.o): Depend on md5.h.
-
- * system.h [!EXIT_FAILURE, !EXIT_SUCCESS]: Define them.
- * lib/md5.c (md5_stream): Check for read failure and return
- indication of success rather than second argument.
- * lib/md5.h (md5_stream): Update prototype.
- [__P]: Define macro.
- * md5sum.c: Use EXIT_FAILURE and EXIT_SUCCESS.
- (main): Report an error if md5_stream fails. Otherwise, running
- `md5sum dir-on-mounted-filesystem' always reported the checksum
- for an empty file. Now it gets the `is a directory' error.
- Greg McGary (gkm@magilla.cichlid.com) reported that the released
- version got stuck in an infinite loop with such arguments.

- (build_spec_list): Adapt to use new interfaces.
- Declare CLOSING_DELIM_IDX and CLOSING_BRACKET_IDX to be of
- type size_t, not int.
- (main): Declare NR and CHARS_READ to be of type long, not int.
-
- * sort.c (main): Comment out unreachable break stmt.
-
- * tail.c (tail): Explicitly cast to long the N_UNITS argumennt in
- call to tail_lines. Otherwise, NetBSD lost because N_UNITS (of type
- off_t, a 64-bit type on NetBSD) wasn't converted to the target type,
- long. Reported by Dan Hagerty (hag@gnu.ai.it.edu).

-Sun Jul 9 11:41:15 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * sort.c (main): When using obsolescent +pos -pos syntax, allow
- omission of field spec only when character offset is specified.
- Otherwise, -. +. would be accepted.
-
-Sat Jul 8 13:48:06 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * sort.c (main): Allow field spec, M, to be omitted in +M.N or -M.N
- position specification. For compatibility with existing practice
- (what vendors?), omitting M is now equivalent to specifying `0' for M,
- but only when using the +pos -pos syntax, not with the -k option.
- From Rick Sladkey (jrs@world.std.com).

-Thu Jul 6 23:44:20 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * od.c (dump): Correct loop-termination criterion.
- Before, running `printf 1234| ./od --width=4 --read-bytes=4'
- printed output for 8 bytes -- the last four were garbage.
- This happened only when the dump limit, N, was specified (with
- --read-bytes=N) and N was a multiple of bytes_per_block
- (usually 16, but 4 in this example). From Andreas Schwab.

- * md5sum.c (split_3): Rewrite to parse Plumb/Lankester format as well.
- (main): Print each sum line in (de facto) standard Plumb/Lankester
- format.
- New option: --quiet.
- Check option no longer takes an argument.
- When checking, exit status reflects success.

-Sat Jun 24 16:18:01 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * md5sum.c [__GNUC__]: Don't conditionalize use of "inline".
- Autoconf (via config.h) defines it away for compilers that don't
- grok it.
-
- * cat.c, comm.c, join.c, sort.c, uniq.c: Undefine min/max before
- defining to avoid redefinition warning on some systems.

- This avoids potential conflict with max macro from some system's
- header files when using bad pre-ANSI compilers.
-
- * uniq.c (usage): Fix typo in text of --help output.
- From Steve McConnel <steve@acadcomp.sil.org>
-
- * md5sum.c [uint32]: When testing for 32-bit arithmetic type,
- also check `unsigned long', as a concession to systems with
- int's smaller than 32 bits.
-
- * configure.in (AC_REPLACE_FUNCS): Remove memcmp (again!) since
- AC_FUNC_MEMCMP already handles it. This avoids warnings from
- ranlib on nextstep systems. From Kaveh Ghazi.
-
- * csplit.c (interrupt_handler): Declare to have a single integer
- parameter. Otherwise, some compilers fail with a type mismatch
- error in sa_handler assignment.
-
- * fmt.c [word]: Redefine. Otherwise, systems (Unicos for one) with
- headers that typedef `word' get syntax errors because of the
- variable by the same name.
-
- * join.c [join]: Redefine to avoid conflict with prototype in some
- system header file. Also for Unicos.
-
- * md5sum.c (main): Remove spurious colon in getopt spec string.

- * Version 1.12.
-
- * md5sum.c (process_buffer): Copy values from struct into
- individual local variables before performing computation on them,
- then copy results back into returned struct. Solely for better
- optimization by compilers that can't keep struct members in
- registers. From Ulrich Drepper.
-
-Thu Jun 15 22:09:14 1995 Jim Meyering (meyering@comco.com)
-
- * md5sum.c: Remove unnecessary uses of `defined' in #if* tests.
- Don't use #elif. Some older compilers don't grok it.
- (split_3): New function to parse out sum, flag, and filename
- when reading check file.
- (hex_digits): Remove length parameter since string parameter is
- now nul-terminated.
- (main): Don't allocate separate arrays for filename and sum
- when checking. Get pointers into line buffer with split_3 instead
- of using sscanf.
- (main): Treat `no file args' just like `-' when not checking
- or using strings.
- (hex_digits): Unprotoize.
-
- * md5sum.c (main): Don't use a separate loop to convert to lower
- case. Suggested by Ulrich Drepper.
- (CLOSE): New macro.
- (md5_file): Use it.
- From Ulrich Drepper.
-
- * md5sum.c: Don't include values.h.
- [__P]: Undefine it.
-

+ Put them all together on a line.
+ Pass the release type (via RELEASE_TYPE envvar) to the MAKE
+ invocation of `announcement'.
+ (announcement): Invoke announce-gen with --release-type=$RELEASE_TYPE.
- * tr.c [NDEBUG]: Define it to disable assertions. Some systems
- have a broken <assert.h> header.
- (is_char_class_member): Set a variable in each branch of switch
- stmt and return that value after the switch (rather than returning
- directly from every branch).
- (unquote): More int->size_t changes.
- (build_spec_list): More int->size_t changes.
- Be very careful about comparison now that variables are unsigned:
- Use i + 2 < len rather than i < len - 2. The latter didn't work
- for len < 2. Caught early thanks to a thorough regression test
- suite.
+ * announce-gen: New option: --news=NEWS_FILE.
+ Extract NEWS entries here, not via rules in Makefile.maint.
+ * Makefile.maint (announcement): Now that NEWS entries are

- (ajr@eng.cam.ac.uk).
-
- * sort.c (main): Temporarily copy each input file that might be
- another name for the output file. When in doubt (e.g. a pipe),

+ Based on a patch by Michael van Elst.

+ 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.

+ Patch by Michael Stone. Reported by Stephen Depooter as
+ Debian bug 175135.
- * sort.c (main): Properly handle -Tdir.

-[2.0.17]
-* csplit no longer gets a failed assertion for this:
- printf 'a\n\n'|csplit - '/^$/' 2
-* sort detects physical memory attributes more portably
-* tail no longer gets a segfault on Linux's /proc/ksyms
-* sum -s produces the proper 16-bit checksum for large files

- the code uses lock-avoiding variants of common I/O functions
-[2.0.16]
-* tail -F no longer segfaults
-[2.0.15]
-* `head -c N' and `od -N N' now read no more than N bytes of input

- for compatibility with the FreeBSD and NetBSD versions of tail.
-* fmt no longer segfaults when using a maximum line width larger than 32767
-* uniq's --all-repeated option has new modes to delimit groups
- of duplicate lines: --all-repeated={precede,separate,none(default)}
-[2.0.14]
-* sort now accepts long options like "--reverse" and "--".
-* sort now checks option syntax as POSIX requires, except that (as usual
- for GNU) options can follow file names unless POSIXLY_CORRECT is set.
- For example, invalid positional combinations like "sort +1 -r -2" are
- now rejected as per POSIX.
-* The next POSIX standard will require that obsolescent 'sort'
- positional options like +1 be treated as file names, not options.
- Please use 'sort -k' instead.
-[2.0.13]
-* pr accepts new -D or --date option, to specify date format.
-* The following changes are required by POSIX:
- - If POSIXLY_CORRECT is set, dates in pr headers now look something like
- 'Dec 4 23:59 2001', with the exact appearance affected by LC_TIME.
- - pr -h now affects only the center header string, not the entire header.
- - pr no longer truncates headers.
-* Spacing in pr headers has been adjusted slightly.
-* `fmt --prefix=S' now works when S contains a byte with the high bit set
-[2.0.12]
-* sort has improved performance when using very little main memory
-* sort has improved memory management
-* sort is no longer susceptible to certain denial of service attacks
-* sort no longer suffers from a race condition whereby an interrupt received
- during cleanup could cause it to fail to remove temporary files.

-[2.0.10]
-* od is faster and more portable than it was in 2.0.9
-* tail avoids an uninitialized memory reference
-[2.0.9]
-* od now prints valid addresses for offsets of 2^32 and larger, and allows
- the byte offset (-j) and byte count (-N) arguments to be 2^32 and larger.
-* tail now works with line and byte counts of 2^32 and larger, on systems
- with large file support
-* join now works with an 8-bit delimiter
-* fix a compilation failure on some Solaris systems with wc.c
-[2.0.8]
-* od now supports 8-byte integers, assuming they're printable with e.g., %lld
-* new program: sha1sum

-* `cat -n' works properly when processing 2^31 or more lines
-[2.0g]
-* sort's --help output now warns that it is locale-aware
-* tail: fix a buffer underrun error that occurred on an empty pipe,
- also thanks to bounded pointers
-* pr: fix a bounds violation found by Greg McGary's bounded-pointers-enabled gcc
- It could have caused (with low probability) the columns on the last page of

+GNU coreutils NEWS -*- outline -*-
+* Major changes in release 5.2.1 (2004-03-12) [stable]
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ mv could mistakenly fail to preserve hard links when moving two
+ or more arguments between partitions.
+
+ `cp --sparse=always F /dev/hdx' no longer tries to use lseek to create
+ holes in the destination.
+
+ nohup now sets the close-on-exec flag for its copy of the stderr file
+ descriptor. This avoids some nohup-induced hangs. For example, before
+ this change, if you ran `ssh localhost', then `nohup sleep 600 </dev/null &',
+ and then exited that remote shell, the ssh session would hang until the
+ 10-minute sleep terminated. With the fixed nohup, the ssh session
+ terminates immediately.
+
+ `expr' now conforms to POSIX better:
+
+ Integers like -0 and 00 are now treated as zero.
+
+ The `|' operator now returns 0, not its first argument, if both
+ arguments are null or zero. E.g., `expr "" \| ""' now returns 0,
+ not the empty string.
+
+ The `|' and `&' operators now use short-circuit evaluation, e.g.,
+ `expr 1 \| 1 / 0' no longer reports a division by zero.
+
+** New features
+
+ `chown user.group file' now has its traditional meaning even when
+ conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001, so long as no user has a name
+ containing `.' that happens to equal `user.group'.
+
+
+* Major changes in release 5.2.0 (2004-02-19) [stable]
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ none
+
+
+* Major changes in release 5.1.3 (2004-02-08): candidate to become stable 5.2.0
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ `cp -d' now works as required even on systems like OSF V5.1 that
+ declare stat and lstat as `static inline' functions.
+
+ time stamps output by stat now include actual fractional seconds,
+ when available -- or .0000000 for files without that information.
+
+ seq no longer infloops when printing 2^31 or more numbers.
+ For reference, seq `echo 2^31|bc` > /dev/null takes about one hour
+ on a 1.6 GHz Athlon 2000 XP. Now it can output 2^53-1 numbers before
+ misbehaving.
+
+* Major changes in release 5.1.2 (2004-01-25):
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ rmdir -p exits with status 1 on error; formerly it sometimes exited
+ with status 0 when given more than one argument.
+
+ nohup now always exits with status 127 when it finds an error,
+ as POSIX requires; formerly it sometimes exited with status 1.
+
+ Several programs (including cut, date, dd, env, hostname, nl, pr,
+ stty, and tr) now always exit with status 1 when they find an error;
+ formerly they sometimes exited with status 2.
+
+ factor no longer reports a usage error if stdin has the wrong format.
+
+ paste no longer infloops on ppc systems (bug introduced in 5.1.1)
+
+
+* Major changes in release 5.1.1 (2004-01-17):
+
+** Configuration option
+
+ You can select the default level of POSIX conformance at configure-time,
+ e.g., by ./configure DEFAULT_POSIX2_VERSION=199209
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ fold -s works once again on systems with differing sizes for int
+ and size_t (bug introduced in 5.1.0)
+
+** New features
+
+ touch -r now specifies the origin for any relative times in the -d
+ operand, if both options are given. For example, "touch -r FOO -d
+ '-5 seconds' BAR" sets BAR's modification time to be five seconds
+ before FOO's.
+
+ join: The obsolete options "-j1 FIELD", "-j2 FIELD", and
+ "-o LIST1 LIST2..." are no longer supported on POSIX 1003.1-2001 systems.
+ Portable scripts should use "-1 FIELD", "-2 FIELD", and
+ "-o LIST1,LIST2..." respectively. If join was compiled on a
+ POSIX 1003.1-2001 system, you may enable the old behavior
+ by setting _POSIX2_VERSION=199209 in your environment.
+
+
+* Major changes in release 5.1.0 (2003-12-21):
+
+** New features
+
+ chgrp, chmod, and chown can now process (with -R) hierarchies of virtually
+ unlimited depth. Before, they would fail to operate on any file they
+ encountered with a relative name of length PATH_MAX (often 4096) or longer.
+
+ chgrp, chmod, chown, and rm accept the new options:
+ --preserve-root, --no-preserve-root (default)
+
+ chgrp and chown now accept POSIX-mandated -L, -H, and -P options
+
+ du can now process hierarchies of virtually unlimited depth.
+ Before, du was limited by the user's stack size and it would get a
+ stack overflow error (often a segmentation fault) when applied to
+ a hierarchy of depth around 30,000 or larger.
+
+ du works even when run from an inaccessible directory
+
+ du -D now dereferences all symlinks specified on the command line,
+ not just the ones that reference directories
+
+ du now accepts -P (--no-dereference), for compatibility with du
+ of NetBSD and for consistency with e.g., chown and chgrp
+
+ du's -H option will soon have the meaning required by POSIX
+ (--dereference-args, aka -D) rather then the current meaning of --si.
+ Now, using -H elicits a warning to that effect.
+
+ When given -l and similar options, ls now adjusts the output column
+ widths to fit the data, so that output lines are shorter and have
+ columns that line up better. This may adversely affect shell
+ scripts that expect fixed-width columns, but such shell scripts were
+ not portable anyway, even with old GNU ls where the columns became
+ ragged when a datum was too wide.
+
+ du accepts a new option, -0/--null, to make it produce NUL-terminated
+ output lines
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ printf, seq, tail, and sleep now parse floating-point operands
+ and options in the C locale. POSIX requires this for printf.
+
+ od -c -w9999999 no longer segfaults
+
+ csplit no longer reads from freed memory (dumping core on some systems)
+
+ csplit would mistakenly exhaust virtual memory in some cases
+
+ ls --width=N (for very large N) is no longer subject to an address
+ arithmetic bug that could result in bounds violations.
+
+ ls --width=N (with -x or -C) no longer allocates more space
+ (potentially much more) than necessary for a given directory.
+
+ dd `unblock' and `sync' may now be combined (e.g., dd conv=unblock,sync)
+
+* Major changes in release 5.0.91 (2003-09-08):
+
+** New features
+
+ date accepts a new option --rfc-2822, an alias for --rfc-822.
+
+ split accepts a new option -d or --numeric-suffixes.
+
+ cp, install, mv, and touch now preserve microsecond resolution on
+ file timestamps, on platforms that have the 'utimes' system call.
+ Unfortunately there is no system call yet to preserve file
+ timestamps to their full nanosecond resolution; microsecond
+ resolution is the best we can do right now.
+
+ sort now supports the zero byte (NUL) as a field separator; use -t '\0'.
+ The -t '' option, which formerly had no effect, is now an error.
+
+ sort option order no longer matters for the options -S, -d, -i, -o, and -t.
+ Stronger options override weaker, and incompatible options are diagnosed.
+
+ `sha1sum --check' now accepts the BSD format for SHA1 message digests
+ in addition to the BSD format for MD5 ones.
+
+ who -l now means `who --login', not `who --lookup', per POSIX.
+ who's -l option has been eliciting an unconditional warning about
+ this impending change since sh-utils-2.0.12 (April 2002).
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ Mistakenly renaming a file onto itself, e.g., via `mv B b' when `B' is
+ the same directory entry as `b' no longer destroys the directory entry
+ referenced by both `b' and `B'. Note that this would happen only on
+ file systems like VFAT where two different names may refer to the same
+ directory entry, usually due to lower->upper case mapping of file names.
+ Now, the above can happen only on file systems that perform name mapping and
+ that support hard links (stat.st_nlink > 1). This mitigates the problem
+ in two ways: few file systems appear to be affected (hpfs and ntfs are),
+ when the bug is triggered, mv no longer removes the last hard link to a file.
+ *** ATTENTION ***: if you know how to distinguish the following two cases
+ without writing to the file system in question, please let me know:
+ 1) B and b refer to the same directory entry on a file system like NTFS
+ (B may well have a link count larger than 1)
+ 2) B and b are hard links to the same file
+
+ stat no longer overruns a buffer for format strings ending in `%'
+
+ fold -s -wN would infloop for N < 8 with TABs in the input.
+ E.g., this would not terminate: printf 'a\t' | fold -w2 -s
+
+ `split -a0', although of questionable utility, is accepted once again.
+
+ `df DIR' used to hang under some conditions on OSF/1 5.1. Now it doesn't.
+
+ seq's --width (-w) option now works properly even when the endpoint
+ requiring the larger width is negative and smaller than the other endpoint.
+
+ seq's default step is 1, even if LAST < FIRST.
+
+ paste no longer mistakenly outputs 0xFF bytes for a nonempty input file
+ without a trailing newline.
+
+ `tail -n0 -f FILE' and `tail -c0 -f FILE' no longer perform what amounted
+ to a busy wait, rather than sleeping between iterations.
+
+ tail's long-undocumented --allow-missing option now elicits a warning
+
+
+* Major changes in release 5.0.90 (2003-07-29):
+
+** New features
+
+ sort is now up to 30% more CPU-efficient in some cases
+
+ `test' is now more compatible with Bash and POSIX:
+
+ `test -t', `test --help', and `test --version' now silently exit
+ with status 0. To test whether standard output is a terminal, use
+ `test -t 1'. To get help and version info for `test', use
+ `[ --help' and `[ --version'.
+
+ `test' now exits with status 2 (not 1) if there is an error.
+
+ wc count field widths now are heuristically adjusted depending on the input
+ size, if known. If only one count is printed, it is guaranteed to
+ be printed without leading spaces.
+
+ Previously, wc did not align the count fields if POSIXLY_CORRECT was set,
+ but POSIX did not actually require this undesirable behavior, so it
+ has been removed.
+
+** Bug fixes
+
+ kill no longer tries to operate on argv[0] (introduced in 5.0.1)
+ Why wasn't this noticed? Although many tests use kill, none of
+ them made an effort to avoid using the shell's built-in kill.
+
+ `[' invoked with no arguments no longer evokes a segfault
+
+ rm without --recursive (aka -r or -R) no longer prompts regarding
+ unwritable directories, as required by POSIX.
+
+ uniq -c now uses a SPACE, not a TAB between the count and the
+ corresponding line, as required by POSIX.
+
+ expr now exits with status 2 if the expression is syntactically valid,
+ and with status 3 if an error occurred. POSIX requires this.
+
+ expr now reports trouble if string comparison fails due to a collation error.
+
+ split now generates suffixes properly on EBCDIC hosts.
+
+ split -a0 now works, as POSIX requires.
+
+ `sort --version' and `sort --help' fail, as they should
+ when their output is redirected to /dev/full.
+
+ `su --version > /dev/full' now fails, as it should.
+
+** Fewer arbitrary limitations
+
+ cut requires 97% less memory when very large field numbers or
+ byte offsets are specified.
+
+
+* Major changes in release 5.0.1 (2003-07-15):
+
+** New programs
+- new program: `[' (much like `test')
+
+** New features
+- head now accepts --lines=-N (--bytes=-N) to print all but the
+ N lines (bytes) at the end of the file
+- md5sum --check now accepts the output of the BSD md5sum program, e.g.,
+ MD5 (f) = d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e
+- date -d DATE can now parse a DATE string like May-23-2003
+- chown: `.' is no longer recognized as a separator in the OWNER:GROUP
+ specifier on POSIX 1003.1-2001 systems. If chown *was not* compiled
+ on such a system, then it still accepts `.', by default. If chown
+ was compiled on a POSIX 1003.1-2001 system, then you may enable the
+ old behavior by setting _POSIX2_VERSION=199209 in your environment.
+- chown no longer tries to preserve set-user-ID and set-group-ID bits;
+ on some systems, the chown syscall resets those bits, and previous
+ versions of the chown command would call chmod to restore the original,
+ pre-chown(2) settings, but that behavior is problematic.
+ 1) There was a window whereby a malicious user, M, could subvert a
+ chown command run by some other user and operating on files in a
+ directory where M has write access.
+ 2) Before (and even now, on systems with chown(2) that doesn't reset
+ those bits), an unwary admin. could use chown unwittingly to create e.g.,
+ a set-user-ID root copy of /bin/sh.
+
+** Bug fixes
+- chown --dereference no longer leaks a file descriptor per symlink processed
+- `du /' once again prints the `/' on the last line
+- split's --verbose option works once again [broken in 4.5.10 and 5.0]
+- tail -f is no longer subject to a race condition that could make it
+ delay displaying the last part of a file that had stopped growing. That
+ bug could also make tail -f give an unwarranted `file truncated' warning.
+- du no longer runs out of file descriptors unnecessarily
+- df and `readlink --canonicalize' no longer corrupt the heap on
+ non-glibc, non-solaris systems
+- `env -u UNSET_VARIABLE' no longer dumps core on non-glibc systems
+- readlink's --canonicalize option now works on systems like Solaris that
+ lack the canonicalize_file_name function but do have resolvepath.
+- mv now removes `a' in this example on all systems: touch a; ln a b; mv a b
+ This behavior is contrary to POSIX (which requires that the mv command do
+ nothing and exit successfully), but I suspect POSIX will change.
+- date's %r format directive now honors locale settings
+- date's `-' (no-pad) format flag now affects the space-padded-by-default
+ conversion specifiers, %e, %k, %l
+- fmt now diagnoses invalid obsolescent width specifications like `-72x'
+- fmt now exits nonzero when unable to open an input file
+- tsort now fails when given an odd number of input tokens,
+ as required by POSIX. Before, it would act as if the final token
+ appeared one additional time.
+
+** Fewer arbitrary limitations
+- tail's byte and line counts are no longer limited to OFF_T_MAX.
+ Now the limit is UINTMAX_MAX (usually 2^64).
+- split can now handle --bytes=N and --lines=N with N=2^31 or more.
+
+** Portability
+- `kill -t' now prints signal descriptions (rather than `?') on systems
+ like Tru64 with __sys_siglist but no strsignal function.
+- stat.c now compiles on Ultrix systems
+- sleep now works on AIX systems that lack support for clock_gettime
+- rm now works around Darwin6.5's broken readdir function
+ Before `rm -rf DIR' would fail to remove all files in DIR
+ if there were more than 338.
+
+* Major changes in release 5.0 (2003-04-02):
+- false --help now exits nonzero
+
+[4.5.12]
+* printf no longer treats \x specially when POSIXLY_CORRECT is set
+* printf avoids buffer overrun with format ending in a backslash and
+* printf avoids buffer overrun with incomplete conversion specifier
+* printf accepts multiple flags in a single conversion specifier
+
+[4.5.11]
+* seq no longer requires that a field width be specified
+* seq no longer fails when given a field width of `0'
+* seq now accepts ` ' and `'' as valid format flag characters
+* df now shows a HOSTNAME: prefix for each remote-mounted file system on AIX 5.1
+* portability tweaks for HP-UX, AIX 5.1, DJGPP
+
+[4.5.10]
+* printf no longer segfaults for a negative field width or precision
+* shred now always enables --exact for non-regular files
+* du no longer lists hard-linked files more than once
+* du no longer dumps core on some systems due to `infinite' recursion
+ via nftw's use of the buggy replacement function in getcwd.c
+* portability patches for a few vendor compilers and 64-bit systems
+* du -S *really* now works like it did before the change in 4.5.5
+
+[4.5.9]
+* du no longer truncates file sizes or sums to fit in 32-bit size_t
+* work around Linux kernel bug in getcwd (fixed in 2.4.21-pre4), so that pwd
+ now fails if the name of the working directory is so long that getcwd
+ truncates it. Before it would print the truncated name and exit successfully.
+* `df /some/mount-point' no longer hangs on a GNU libc system when another
+ hard-mounted NFS file system (preceding /some/mount-point in /proc/mounts)
+ is inaccessible.
+* rm -rf now gives an accurate diagnostic when failing to remove a file
+ under certain unusual conditions
+* mv and `cp --preserve=links' now preserve multiple hard links even under
+ certain unusual conditions where they used to fail
+
+[4.5.8]
+* du -S once again works like it did before the change in 4.5.5
+* stat accepts a new file format, %B, for the size of each block reported by %b
+* du accepts new option: --apparent-size
+* du --bytes (-b) works the same way it did in fileutils-3.16 and before
+* du reports proper sizes for directories (not zero) (broken in 4.5.6 or 4.5.7)
+* df now always displays under `Filesystem', the device file name
+ corresponding to the listed mount point. Before, for a block- or character-
+ special file command line argument, df would display that argument. E.g.,
+ `df /dev/hda' would list `/dev/hda' as the `Filesystem', rather than say
+ /dev/hda3 (the device on which `/' is mounted), as it does now.
+* test now works properly when invoked from a set user ID or set group ID
+ context and when testing access to files subject to alternate protection
+ mechanisms. For example, without this change, a set-UID program that invoked
+ `test -w F' (to see if F is writable) could mistakenly report that it *was*
+ writable, even though F was on a read-only file system, or F had an ACL
+ prohibiting write access, or F was marked as immutable.
+
+[4.5.7]
+* du would fail with more than one DIR argument when any but the last did not
+ contain a slash (due to a bug in ftw.c)
+
+[4.5.6]
+* du no longer segfaults on Solaris systems (fixed heap-corrupting bug in ftw.c)
+* du --exclude=FILE works once again (this was broken by the rewrite for 4.5.5)
+* du no longer gets a failed assertion for certain hierarchy lay-outs
+ involving hard-linked directories
+* `who -r' no longer segfaults when using non-C-locale messages
+* df now displays a mount point (usually `/') for non-mounted
+ character-special and block files
+
+[4.5.5]
+* 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.
+
+[4.5.4]
+* cp no longer fails to parse options like this: --preserve=mode,ownership
+* `ls --color -F symlink-to-dir' works properly
+* ls is much more efficient on directories with valid dirent.d_type.
+* stty supports all baud rates defined in linux-2.4.19.
+* `du symlink-to-dir/' would improperly remove the trailing slash
+* `du ""' would evoke a bounds violation.
+* In the unlikely event that running `du /' resulted in `stat ("/", ...)'
+ failing, du would give a diagnostic about `' (empty string) rather than `/'.
+* printf: a hexadecimal escape sequence has at most two hex. digits, not three.
+* The following features have been added to the --block-size option
+ and similar environment variables of df, du, and ls.
+ - A leading "'" generates numbers with thousands separators.
+ For example:
+ $ ls -l --block-size="'1" file
+ -rw-rw-r-- 1 eggert src 47,483,707 Sep 24 23:40 file
+ - A size suffix without a leading integer generates a suffix in the output.
+ For example:
+ $ ls -l --block-size="K"
+ -rw-rw-r-- 1 eggert src 46371K Sep 24 23:40 file
+* ls's --block-size option now affects file sizes in all cases, not
+ just for --block-size=human-readable and --block-size=si. Fractional
+ sizes are now always rounded up, for consistency with df and du.
+* df now displays the block size using powers of 1000 if the requested
+ block size seems to be a multiple of a power of 1000.
+* nl no longer gets a segfault when run like this `yes|nl -s%n'
+
+[4.5.3]
+* du --dereference-args (-D) no longer fails in certain cases
+* `ln --target-dir=DIR' no longer fails when given a single argument
+
+[4.5.2]
+* `rm -i dir' (without --recursive (-r)) no longer recurses into dir
+* `tail -c N FILE' now works with files of size >= 4GB
+* `mkdir -p' can now create very deep (e.g. 40,000-component) directories
+* rmdir -p dir-with-trailing-slash/ no longer fails
+* printf now honors the `--' command line delimiter
+* od's 8-byte formats x8, o8, and u8 now work
+* tail now accepts fractional seconds for its --sleep-interval=S (-s) option
+
+[4.5.1]
+* du and ls now report sizes of symbolic links (before they'd always report 0)
+* uniq now obeys the LC_COLLATE locale, as per POSIX 1003.1-2001 TC1.
+
+========================================================================
+Here are the NEWS entries made from fileutils-4.1 until the
+point at which the packages merged to form the coreutils:
+
+[4.1.11]
+* `rm symlink-to-unwritable' doesn't prompt [introduced in 4.1.10]
+[4.1.10]
+* rm once again gives a reasonable diagnostic when failing to remove a file
+ owned by someone else in a sticky directory [introduced in 4.1.9]
+* df now rounds all quantities up, as per POSIX.
+* New ls time style: long-iso, which generates YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM.
+* Any time style can be preceded by "posix-"; this causes "ls" to
+ use traditional timestamp format when in the POSIX locale.
+* The default time style is now posix-long-iso instead of posix-iso.
+ Set TIME_STYLE="posix-iso" to revert to the behavior of 4.1.1 thru 4.1.9.
+* `rm dangling-symlink' doesn't prompt [introduced in 4.1.9]
+* stat: remove support for --secure/-s option and related %S and %C format specs
+* stat: rename --link/-l to --dereference/-L.
+ The old options will continue to work for a while.
+[4.1.9]
+* rm can now remove very deep hierarchies, in spite of any limit on stack size
+* new programs: link, unlink, and stat
+* New ls option: --author (for the Hurd).
+* `touch -c no-such-file' no longer fails, per POSIX
+[4.1.8]
+* mv no longer mistakenly creates links to preexisting destination files
+ that aren't moved
+[4.1.7]
+* rm: close a hole that would allow a running rm process to be subverted
+[4.1.6]
+* New cp option: --copy-contents.
+* cp -r is now equivalent to cp -R. Use cp -R -L --copy-contents to get the
+ traditional (and rarely desirable) cp -r behavior.
+* ls now accepts --time-style=+FORMAT, where +FORMAT works like date's format
+* The obsolete usage `touch [-acm] MMDDhhmm[YY] FILE...' is no longer
+ supported on systems conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001. Use touch -t instead.
+* cp and inter-partition mv no longer give a misleading diagnostic in some
+ unusual cases
+[4.1.5]
+* cp -r no longer preserves symlinks
+* The block size notation is now compatible with SI and with IEC 60027-2.
+ For example, --block-size=1MB now means --block-size=1000000,
+ whereas --block-size=1MiB now means --block-size=1048576.
+ A missing `B' (e.g. `1M') has the same meaning as before.
+ A trailing `B' now means decimal, not binary; this is a silent change.
+ The nonstandard `D' suffix (e.g. `1MD') is now obsolescent.
+* -H or --si now outputs the trailing 'B', for consistency with the above.
+* Programs now output trailing 'K' (not 'k') to mean 1024, as per IEC 60027-2.
+* New df, du short option -B is short for --block-size.
+* You can omit an integer `1' before a block size suffix,
+ e.g. `df -BG' is equivalent to `df -B 1G' and to `df --block-size=1G'.
+* The following options are now obsolescent, as their names are
+ incompatible with IEC 60027-2:
+ df, du: -m or --megabytes (use -BM or --block-size=1M)
+ df, du, ls: --kilobytes (use --block-size=1K)
+[4.1.4]
+* df --local no longer lists smbfs file systems whose name starts with //
+* dd now detects the Linux/tape/lseek bug at run time and warns about it.
+[4.1.3]
+* ls -R once again outputs a blank line between per-directory groups of files.
+ This was broken by the cycle-detection change in 4.1.1.
+* dd once again uses `lseek' on character devices like /dev/mem and /dev/kmem.
+ On systems with the linux kernel (at least up to 2.4.16), dd must still
+ resort to emulating `skip=N' behavior using reads on tape devices, because
+ lseek has no effect, yet appears to succeed. This may be a kernel bug.
+[4.1.2]
+* cp no longer fails when two or more source files are the same;
+ now it just gives a warning and doesn't copy the file the second time.
+ E.g., cp a a d/ produces this:
+ cp: warning: source file `a' specified more than once
+* chmod would set the wrong bit when given symbolic mode strings like
+ these: g=o, o=g, o=u. E.g., `chmod a=,o=w,ug=o f' would give a mode
+ of --w-r---w- rather than --w--w--w-.
+[4.1.1]
+* mv (likewise for cp), now fails rather than silently clobbering one of
+ the source files in the following example:
+ rm -rf a b c; mkdir a b c; touch a/f b/f; mv a/f b/f c
+* ls -R detects directory cycles, per POSIX. It warns and doesn't infloop.
+* cp's -P option now means the same as --no-dereference, per POSIX.
+ Use --parents to get the old meaning.
+* When copying with the -H and -L options, cp can preserve logical
+ links between source files with --preserve=links
+* cp accepts new options:
+ --preserve[={mode,ownership,timestamps,links,all}]
+ --no-preserve={mode,ownership,timestamps,links,all}
+* cp's -p and --preserve options remain unchanged and are equivalent
+ to `--preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps'
+* mv and cp accept a new option: --reply={yes,no,query}; provides a consistent
+ mechanism to control whether one is prompted about certain existing
+ destination files. Note that cp's and mv's -f options don't have the
+ same meaning: cp's -f option no longer merely turns off `-i'.
+* remove portability limitations (e.g., PATH_MAX on the Hurd, fixes for
+ 64-bit systems)
+* mv now prompts before overwriting an existing, unwritable destination file
+ when stdin is a tty, unless --force (-f) is specified, as per POSIX.
+* mv: fix the bug whereby `mv -uf source dest' would delete source,
+ even though it's older than dest.
+* chown's --from=CURRENT_OWNER:CURRENT_GROUP option now works
+* cp now ensures that the set-user-ID and set-group-ID bits are cleared for
+ the destination file when when copying and not preserving permissions.
+* `ln -f --backup k k' gives a clearer diagnostic
+* ls no longer truncates user names or group names that are longer
+ than 8 characters.
+* ls's new --dereference-command-line option causes it to dereference
+ symbolic links on the command-line only. It is the default unless
+ one of the -d, -F, or -l options are given.
+* ls -H now means the same as ls --dereference-command-line, as per POSIX.
+* ls -g now acts like ls -l, except it does not display owner, as per POSIX.
+* ls -n now implies -l, as per POSIX.
+* ls can now display dates and times in one of four time styles:
+
+ - The `full-iso' time style gives full ISO-style time stamps like
+ `2001-05-14 23:45:56.477817180 -0700'.
+ - The 'iso' time style gives ISO-style time stamps like '2001-05-14 '
+ and '05-14 23:45'.
+ - The 'locale' time style gives locale-dependent time stamps like
+ 'touko 14 2001' and 'touko 14 23:45' (in a Finnish locale).
+ - The 'posix-iso' time style gives traditional POSIX-locale
+ time stamps like 'May 14 2001' and 'May 14 23:45' unless the user
+ specifies a non-POSIX locale, in which case it uses ISO-style dates.
+ This is the default.
+
+ You can specify a time style with an option like --time-style='iso'
+ or with an environment variable like TIME_STYLE='iso'. GNU Emacs 21
+ and later can parse ISO dates, but older Emacs versions cannot, so
+ if you are using an older version of Emacs outside the default POSIX
+ locale, you may need to set TIME_STYLE="locale".
+
+* --full-time is now an alias for "-l --time-style=full-iso".
+
+
+========================================================================
+Here are the NEWS entries made from sh-utils-2.0 until the
+point at which the packages merged to form the coreutils:
+
+ [2.0.15]
+* date no longer accepts e.g., September 31 in the MMDDhhmm syntax
+* fix a bug in this package's .m4 files and in configure.ac
+ [2.0.14]
+* nohup's behavior is changed as follows, to conform to POSIX 1003.1-2001:
+ - nohup no longer adjusts scheduling priority; use "nice" for that.
+ - nohup now redirects stderr to stdout, if stderr is not a terminal.
+ - nohup exit status is now 126 if command was found but not invoked,
+ 127 if nohup failed or if command was not found.
+ [2.0.13]
+* uname and uptime work better on *BSD systems
+* pathchk now exits nonzero for a path with a directory component
+ that specifies a non-directory
+ [2.0.12]
+* kill: new program
+* who accepts new options: --all (-a), --boot (-b), --dead (-d), --login,
+ --process (-p), --runlevel (-r), --short (-s), --time (-t), --users (-u).
+ The -u option now produces POSIX-specified results and is the same as
+ the long option `--users'. --idle is no longer the same as -u.
+* The following changes apply on systems conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001,
+ and are required by the new POSIX standard:
+ - `date -I' is no longer supported. Instead, use `date --iso-8601'.
+ - `nice -NUM' is no longer supported. Instead, use `nice -n NUM'.
+* New 'uname' options -i or --hardware-platform, and -o or --operating-system.
+ 'uname -a' now outputs -i and -o information at the end.
+ New uname option --kernel-version is an alias for -v.
+ Uname option --release has been renamed to --kernel-release,
+ and --sysname has been renamed to --kernel-name;
+ the old options will work for a while, but are no longer documented.
+* 'expr' now uses the LC_COLLATE locale for string comparison, as per POSIX.
+* 'expr' now requires '+' rather than 'quote' to quote tokens;
+ this removes an incompatibility with POSIX.
+* date -d 'last friday' would print a date/time that was one hour off
+ (e.g., 23:00 on *thursday* rather than 00:00 of the preceding friday)
+ when run such that the current time and the target date/time fall on
+ opposite sides of a daylight savings time transition.
+ This problem arose only with relative date strings like `last monday'.
+ It was not a problem with strings that include absolute dates.
+* factor is twice as fast, for large numbers
+ [2.0.11]
+* setting the date now works properly, even when using -u
+* `date -f - < /dev/null' no longer dumps core
+* some DOS/Windows portability changes
+ [2.0j]
+* `date -d DATE' now parses certain relative DATEs correctly
+ [2.0i]
+* fixed a bug introduced in 2.0h that made many programs fail with a
+ `write error' when invoked with the --version option
+ [2.0h]
* all programs fail when printing --help or --version output to a full device
-* cut no longer gets a segfault under some circumstances
-* unexpand accepts new option: --first-only
-[2.0e]
-* `tail -f directory' no longer gets a failed assertion
-* sort: big performance improvement when sorting many small files;
- from Charles Randall
-* configure and portability changes in m4/ and lib/
-[2.0d]
-* preliminary sort performance improvements
-* tsort now works more like the traditional UNIX tsort. Before it would
- exit when it found a loop. Now it continues and outputs all items.
-* unexpand no longer infloops on certain sequences of white space
+* printf exits nonzero upon write failure
+* yes now detects and terminates upon write failure
+* date --rfc-822 now always emits day and month names from the `C' locale
+* portability tweaks for Solaris8, Ultrix, and DOS
+ [2.0g]
+* date now handles two-digit years with leading zeros correctly.
+* printf interprets unicode, \uNNNN \UNNNNNNNN, on systems with the
+ required support; from Bruno Haible.
+* stty's rprnt attribute now works on HPUX 10.20
+* seq's --equal-width option works more portably
+ [2.0f]
+* fix build problems with ut_name vs. ut_user
+ [2.0e]
+* stty: fix long-standing bug that caused test failures on at least HPUX
+ systems when COLUMNS was set to zero
+* still more portability fixes
* unified lib/: now that directory and most of the configuration framework
is common between fileutils, textutils, and sh-utils
-[2.0c]
-* include lib/nanosleep.h.
-[2.0b]
-* portability tweaks for error.c vs. systems with deficient strerror_r
-[2.0a]
-* `tail --follow=name' no longer gets a failed assertion for a
- dev,inode-reusing race condition
-* sort and comm no longer consider newlines to be part of the line,
- as this requirement will likely be removed from POSIX.2.
- This undoes some changes made for textutils 1.22m and 1.22n.
-* tail's (short only) -f option no longer accepts an optional argument,
- so e.g., `tail -fn 2 file' works again.
-* tail no longer refuses to operate on certain types of files
-* fixed bug in tsort's handling of cycles
-
-Changes in release 2.0
-[1.22q]
-* HPUX portability fix: md5sum would dump core due to use of libc's getline
-[1.22p]
-* portability fixes from Paul Eggert based largely on tar-1.13 reports
-* `tail --pid=PID' now works even when PID belongs to some other user
-[1.22o]
-* tail accepts new option: --pid=PID
-[1.22n]
-* tail accepts the following new options (some of which were added in 1.22g):
- --retry
- --follow[={name|descriptor}]
- --max-unchanged-stats=N
- --max-consecutive-size-changes=N
- --sleep-interval=S
-* wc uses the POSIX-mandated output format when POSIXLY_CORRECT is set
-* To maintain compatibility with sort, comm and join now obey the LC_COLLATE
- locale, and comm now considers newlines to be part of the lines.
-* use lib/memchr.c only if it's not provided by the system -- this means
- that on systems with a fast library memchr function you may notice an
- improvement. If you use a system with a buggy or signifcantly slower
- memchr, please report it.
-[1.22m]
-* sort now considers newlines to be part of the line, as required by POSIX.2.
- E.g. a line starting with a tab now sorts before an empty line,
- since tab precedes newline in the ASCII collating sequence.
-* sort handles NUL bytes correctly when configured/compiled with --enable-nls
-* fix typos in my version of AC_SEARCH_LIBS.
-* fix dates on config files so builders don't need autoconf/automake
-[1.22l]
-* sort no longer autodetects the locale of numbers and months,
- as that conflicts with POSIX.2
-* `join -tC' now works when input contains trailing spaces
-* portability tweaks for Irix's cc
-[1.22k]
-* `sort -n' works with negative numbers when configured/compiled
- with --enable-nls

-[1.22j]
-* tail: fix bug introduced in 1.22i
-[1.22i]
-* tail now terminates in `yes > k & sleep 1; tail -2c k'
-* `tail -f' now ensures that stdout is unbuffered
-* fix a bug in cut to allow use of 8-bit delimiters
-* pr accepts POSIX compliant options -s and -w,
- the new capital letter options -J, -S and _W turn off the
- unexpected interferences of the small letter options -s and -w
- if used together with the column options.
-* pr output has been adapted to other UNIXes in some cases.
-[1.22h]
-* portability tweaks
-* Window/NT/DOS support
-[1.22g]
-* uniq accepts new option: --all-repeated (-D).
-* Windows/DOS portability fixes
-* new program: tsort
-* tail has several new options
-* md5sum can handle file names with embedded backslash characters
-* pr accepts long option names (see `pr --help')
-* new program: ptx (moved to this package from being its own distribution)
-[1.22f]
-* cut accepts new --output-delimiter=STR option
-* `sort -o no-such-file no-such-file' now fails, as it should
-* fix pr bug: pr -td didn't double space
-* fix tac bug when using -b, -r, and -s SEPARATOR
-* fix sort bug whereby using key-local `d' option would cause following
- key specs to be ignored when any two keys (in the `d'-modified test)
- compared equal.

-[1.22a]
-* sort -c reports both the number and the contents of the first out-of-order
- line, in addition to the file name.
-* `head -c 4096m' is no longer treated just like `head -c 0'
- now it gets a diagnostic about 4096m being too large.
-* pr: For compatibility (also more POSIX compliant): Include default
- separator `TAB' when merging lines of full length.
-* When POSIXLY_CORRECT is not set, tail -N now accepts more than one file
- argument, to be consistent with the way head -N works. If POSIXLY_CORRECT
- is set, using two or more file arguments with the obsolescent form (-N)
- evokes an error. To avoid the warning or failure, use the POSIX -n N option
- or the GNU --lines=N option.

-* pr accepts new option: -T, equivalent to -t, but eliminate also form feeds
- (`clear file')
-* pr accepts the extension: +FIRST_PAGE[:LAST_PAGE]
-* pr -w and -s option disentangled (`use a separator' no longer destroys
- column alignment)
-* pr accepts new option: -j, merge lines of full length
-* pr accepts the extension: -s[STRING], use separator string instead of
- character only

-* md5sum can verify digests of files with names containing newline characters
-* update from gettext-0.10.20.

- Before it printed `c' instead of `c:'
-* csplit allows repeat counts to be specified via `{*}'.
-* csplit accepts a new option, --suffix=format that supercedes the
- --digits option. The --digits option will continue to work.
-* csplit accepts a new option, --elide-empty-files.
-* configure uses config.h, so DEFS won't exceed preprocessor limits of
- some compilers on the number of symbols defined via -D.
-* work around problem where $(srcdir)/config.h was used instead of
- ../config.h -- this happened only when building in a subdirectory
- and when config.h remained in $(srcdir) from a previous ./configure.

-I M P O R T A N T:
+These programs are intended to conform to POSIX (with BSD and other
+extensions), like the rest of the GNU system. By default they conform
+to older POSIX (1003.2-1992), and therefore support obsolete usages
+like "head -10" and "chown owner.group file". This default is
+overridden at build-time by the value of <unistd.h>'s _POSIX2_VERSION
+macro, and this in turn can be overridden at runtime as described in
+the documentation under "Standards conformance".
+
+The ls, dir, and vdir commands are all separate executables instead of
+one program that checks argv[0] because people often rename these
+programs to things like gls, gnuls, l, etc. Renaming a program
+file shouldn't affect how it operates, so that people can get the
+behavior they want with whatever name they want.
+
+Special thanks to Paul Eggert, Brian Matthews, Bruce Evans, Karl Berry,
+Kaveh Ghazi, and François Pinard for help with debugging and porting
+these programs. Many thanks to all of the people who have taken the
+time to submit problem reports and fixes. All contributed changes are
+attributed in the ChangeLog file.
+
+And thanks to the following people who have provided accounts for
+portability testing on many different types of systems: Bob Proulx,
+Christian Robert, François Pinard, Greg McGary, Harlan Stenn,
+Joel N. Weber, Mark D. Roth, Matt Schalit, Nelson H. F. Beebe,
+Réjean Payette, Sam Tardieu.
+
+Thanks to Michael Stone for inflicting test releases of the fileutils
+on Debian's unstable distribution, and to all the kind folks who used
+that distribution and found and reported bugs.
+
+Note that each man page is now automatically generated from a template
+and from the corresponding --help usage message. Patches to the template
+files (man/*.x) are welcome. However, the authoritative documentation
+is in texinfo form in the doc directory.
+
+If you run the tests on a SunOS4.1.4 system, expect the ctime-part of
+the ls `time-1' test to fail. I believe that is due to a bug in the
+way Sun implemented link(2) and chmod(2).

+***************************************
+Last-minute notes, before coreutils-5.0
+---------------------------------------
+
+A known problem exists when compiling on HPUX on both hppa and ia64
+in 64-bit mode (i.e. +DD64) on all known HPUX 11.x versions. This
+is not due to a bug in the package but instead due to a bug in the
+system header file which breaks things in 64-bit mode. The default
+compilation mode is 32-bit and the software compiles fine using the
+default mode. To build this software in 64-bit mode you will need
+to fix the system /usr/include/inttypes.h header file. After
+correcting that file the software also compiles fine in 64-bit mode.
+Here is one possible patch to correct the problem.

+If you run the tests as root, note that a few of them create files
+and/or run programs as a non-root user, `nobody' by default.
+If you want to use some other non-root username, specify it via
+the NON_ROOT_USERNAME environment variable. Depending on the
+permissions with which the working directories have been created,
+using `nobody' may fail, because that user won't have the required
+read and write access to the build and test directories.
+I find that it is best to unpack and build as a non-privileged
+user, and then to run the following command as that user in order
+to run the privilege-requiring tests:
+
+ sudo env NON_ROOT_USERNAME=$USER make check
+
+If you can run the tests as root, please do so and report any
+problems. We get much less test coverage in that mode, and it's
+arguably more important that these tools work well when run by
+root than when run by less privileged users.
+
+***************************************
+
+There are pretty many tests, but nowhere near as many as we need.
+Additions and corrections are very welcome.
+
+If you see a problem that you've already reported, feel free to re-report
+it -- it won't bother me to get a reminder. Besides, the more messages I
+get regarding a particular problem the sooner it'll be fixed -- usually.
+If you sent a complete patch and, after a couple weeks you haven't
+received any acknowledgement, please ping us. A complete patch includes
+a well-written ChangeLog entry, unified (diff -u format) diffs relative
+to the most recent test release (or, better, relative to the latest
+sources in the CVS repository), an explanation for why the patch is
+necessary or useful, and if at all possible, enough information to
+reproduce whatever problem prompted it. Plus, you'll earn lots of
+karma if you include a test case to exercise any bug(s) you fix.
+Instructions for checking out the latest source via CVS are here:
+
+ http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=coreutils
+
+
+If your patch adds a new feature, please try to get some sort of consensus
+that it is a worthwhile change. One way to do that is to send mail to
+bug-coreutils@gnu.org including as much description and justification
+as you can. Based on the feedback that generates, you may be able to
+convince us that it's worth adding.
