Fedora Core 1 Update: grep-2.5.1-17.4



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2003-003
2003-12-10
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : grep
Version     : 2.5.1                      
Release     : 17.4                  
Summary     : The GNU versions of grep pattern matching utilities.
Description :
The GNU versions of commonly used grep utilities.  Grep searches
through textual input for lines which contain a match to a specified
pattern and then prints the matching lines.  GNU's grep utilities
include grep, egrep and fgrep.

You should install grep on your system, because it is a very useful
utility for searching through text.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

When processing UTF-8 encoded input, the grep utility (for searching
through textual input to find lines matching a regular expression) is
extremely inefficient (bug #69900).  A method for speeding up UTF-8
processing in grep has been incorporated in this updated package.

Three more problems have been fixed since this update was first
issued, two of which were regressions.
