bugfix update in Fedora 25 for mksh

Status: stable a year ago
  • Do not apply alias name restrictions to hash/tilde tracking
  • Restore ‘.’, ‘:’ and ‘[’ in alias names (“[[” is still forbidden)
  • Fix accidentally defanged $PATHSEP test
  • On ^C (INTR and QUIT edchars), shove edit line into history
  • Begin porting to z/OS using EBCDIC encoding, incomplete
  • Redo fast character classes code, adding POSIX and other helpers
  • bind parses backslash-escaped ‘^’ (and ‘\’) as escaped
  • Building with -DMKSH_ASSUME_UTF8=0 no longer causes a known failure in the testsuite
  • re_format(7) BSD: [[ $x = [[:\<:]]foo[[:>:]] ]]
  • Use Config in check.pl only if it exists
  • New matching code for bracket expressions, full POSIX (8bit)
  • Exclude FAT/HPFS/NTFS-unsafe tests on OS/2 (and Cygwin/MSYS)
  • Update to Unicode 10.0.0
  • Make readonly idempotent
  • When truncating the persistent history, do not change the underlying file, do all operations on the locked one; do not stop using the history at all if it has been truncated
  • Turn off UTF-8 mode upon turning on POSIX mode
  • In POSIX mode, make the exec builtin force a $PATH search plus execve
  • Fix GCC 7, Coverity Scan warnings
  • Track background process PIDs even interactive
  • Always expose mksh’s hexdump shell function; speed it up by working on the input in chunks; use character classes to make it EBCDIC safe
  • Revamp dot.mkshrc default editor selection mechanism
