[SECURITY] Fedora 8 Update: pcre-7.3-4.fc8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-6111
2008-07-06 04:43:29
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : pcre
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 7.3
Release     : 4.fc8
URL         : http://www.pcre.org/
Summary     : Perl-compatible regular expression library
Description :
Perl-compatible regular expression library.
PCRE has its own native API, but a set of "wrapper" functions that are based on
the POSIX API are also supplied in the library libpcreposix. Note that this
just provides a POSIX calling interface to PCRE: the regular expressions
themselves still follow Perl syntax and semantics. The header file
for the POSIX-style functions is called pcreposix.h.
