Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-802
2005-08-24
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : pcre
Version : 4.5
Release : 3.1.1.fc3
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.

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

the new package includes a fix for a heap buffer overflow.
