	[_LIBC] (fchdir): Don't undef or define; no longer used.
	(FCHDIR): Define in terms of cwd_advance_fd rather than fchdir.

	(diropen): Add parameter, SP.  Adjust all callers.
	Implement using diropen_fd, rather than open.

	and close the dup'd file descriptor upon failure.
	(fts_stat): Use fstatat(...AT_SYMLINK_NOFOLLOW) in place of lstat.
	(fts_safe_changedir): Tweak semantics to reflect that this function
	now calls cwd_advance_fd and hence consumes its FD argument.
	* fts_.h [struct FTS] (fts_cwd_fd): New member.
	[struct FTS] (fts_rft): Remove now-unused member.
	[struct FTS] (fts_cycle.state): Improve comment.

	* regex_internal.c (re_string_skip_chars): Don't assume WEOF fits
	in wchar_t.  Problem reported by Eric Blake.

	* snprintf.c (snprintf): memcpy LEN bytes, not SIZE - 1, when
	LEN is smaller than SIZE.  Suggested by Bruno Haible.
	Also, help the compiler to keep LEN in a register.

2006-08-10  Paul Eggert  <>

	* .cppi-disable: Add snprintf.h, socket_.h.
	* snprintf.c: Include <errno.h> and <limits.h>.
	(EOVERFLOW): Define if the system does not.
	Do not include "minmax.h"; it wasn't used.
	(snprintf): Don't assume size_t promotes to an unsigned type.
	Fix bug when generated string was too long for the buffer: the
	buffer's contents are supposed to be the initial prefix of the
	output.  Don't assume vasnprintf returns EOVERFLOW if the size
	exceeds INT_MAX; do the check ourselves.

	Import the following changes from libc:

	2006-06-02  Jakub Jelinek  <>

	* posix/regex_internal.c (re_string_skip_chars): If no character has
	been converted at all, set *last_wc to WEOF.  If mbrtowc failed, set wc
	to the byte which couldn't be converted.
	(re_string_reconstruct): Don't clear valid_raw_len before calling
	re_string_skip_chars.  If wc is WEOF after re_string_skip_chars, set
	tip_context using re_string_context_at.

	is nonnegative.

	* regex_internal.h (__GNUC_PREREQ, always_inline, inline, pure):

	* utimens.c (futimens): Use futimesat if available.
	Prefer it to futimes since it doesn't have the futimes bug.

	* verify.h (GL_CONCAT0, GL_CONCAT): Remove.
	(verify): Don't use the __LINE__ trick, as it doesn't work in general.
	Instead, declare a function that returns a pointer to an array,
	and use verify_type__ to declare the size of the array.
	Problem and germ of a solution reported by Bruno Haible.

	If the file already exists but is not a directory, don't bother

	to make it a bit faster and (I hope) clearer.
	* strftime.c (my_strftime): Add support for %:z, %::z, %:::z.
	Fix bug in formats like %2N.

	* verify.h: New file.

	Sync from coreutils.

	* backupfile.c: Use ARGMATCH_VERIFY, just in case.

	* posixtm.c (posixtime) [lint]: Initialize *all* of tm0, not just
	the .tm_year member, since otherwise gcc-4.0 would now warn about
	tm_zone, tm_gmtoff, tm_isdst, tm_yday, tm_wday.

	* quotearg.c (quotearg_n_options): Change code to be suboptimal, in
	order to avoid an unsuppressible warning from gcc on 64-bit systems.

	* getdate.y (get_date): Undo part of the 2005-04-04 change, so that
	the command "date -d'2005-03-27 +1 day'" succeeds once again, even
	when run in a time zone for which daylight savings time is in effect
	for the starting date.

	* mkdir-p.c (make_dir_parents): Don't let a failed chdir($PWD)
	stop us from restricting permissions of just-created absolute-named
	* mkdir-p.c (CLEANUP_CWD): Return *true*, not false when failing
	to restore initial working directory.
	* mkdir-p.c (make_dir_parents): New parameter: different_working_dir,
	to tell caller if/when we change the working directory and are
	unable to return to the initial one.
	* mkdir-p.h (make_dir_parents): Update prototype.
	* mkdir-p.c (CLEANUP_CWD): Change one more `return 1' to
	`return false'.  This fixes a bug introduced on 2004-07-30.

	* openat.c (fdopendir): Be sure to close the supplied
	file descriptor before returning.  This makes our replacement
	implementation a little closer to Solaris's, where fdopendir
	ties the file descriptor to the returned DIR* pointer.
	* openat.c (unlinkat): New function.

	* openat.h (openat_save_die, openat_restore_die): Declare and define.

	* strftime.c [FPRINTFTIME] (fprintftime): Provide a new interface:
	size_t fprintftime (FILE *fp, char const *fmt, struct tm const *tm,
			    int utc, int nanoseconds);
	date should not have to allocate a megabyte of virtual memory to
	handle a format argument like +%1048575T.  When implemented with
	strftime, it must allocate such a buffer, use strftime to fill it
	in, print it, then free it.
	With fprintftime, it simply prints everything and exits.
	With no need for memory allocation, that's one fewer way to fail.
	* strftime.c (my_strftime): Parse the colons of %:::z *after* the
	optional field width, not before, so we accept %9:z, not %:9z.

	On 64-bit hosts (where size_t is 64 bits and int is 32 bits), the
	old glibc regex code mishandles strings longer than 2**31 bytes.
	This patch fixes this when the regex code is used in gnulib
	(i.e., outside glibc).

	This patch should not affect the use of the regex code inside
	glibc.  No doubt this problem also needs to be handled for glibc
	as well, but the result will be an incompatible change to the
	glibc ABI, and the old ABI will have to be supported too.  That
	can be the the subject for another patch.

	(_REGEX_SOURCE): New macro.

	Fix problems reported by Scott S. Tinsley for HP-UX 11.11 using
	HP's ANSI C compiler.

	* same.c (MIN) [defined MIN]: Don't define, since it's already

	behavior, and to avoid the PATH_MAX limit when computing
	Use MATCHING_INO to compare inode number to file.
	Check for arithmetic overflow in size calculations.
	Fix bug in reallocation of dot array that caused getcwd to fail
	on directories nested deeper than 75.
	Be more careful about saving errno on error.
	Do not use realloc; use only free+malloc, as this is a bit
	more flexible and avoids a needless copy operation.
	Do not inspect st_dev and st_ino for symbolic links; POSIX
	doesn't specify the latter.
	Check for closedir errors.
	Avoid needless casts.
	Use "#ifdef weak_alias" around weak_alias, to be like other
	glibc code.
	The following changes to getcwd.c have effect only when used in

	Include <unistd.h> if _LIBC, not if __GNU_LIBRARY__.
	Use "_LIBC", not "defined _LIBC", for consistency.

	New macros.
	(getopt, getopt_long, getopt_long_only, optarg, opterr, optind,

	* human.c (human_readable): Support it.

	* xgetcwd.c: Include <limits.h>, for PATH_MAX.
	(xgetcwd): Set errno correctly when failing.
	Work around Solaris 9 bug: getcwd sets errno==ERANGE even though

	Further getopt changes to make it more likely that glibc will
	buy the changes back.
	* getopt.c (POSIXLY_CORRECT): New constant.
	(getopt): Use it, so to preserve glibc semantic

	* closeout.c: Include "__fpending.h" once again.
	Include <stdbool.h>.
	(close_stdout): Don't fail just because stdout was closed initially,
	since some programs don't write to stdout in the normal course of
	operation (other than --version and --help), and we don't want this
	function to make e.g. `touch file >&-' fail.
	But do fail if it was closed and someone has tried to write to it.
	E.g., `printf foo >&-' must fail.

2004-11-11  Paul Eggert  <>

	* getopt_.h [defined __GETOPT_PREFIX && !defined __need_getopt]:
	Include <stdlib.h> and <stdio.h>, and <unistd.h> if available.
	Then rename getopt to __GETOPT_PREFIX##getopt, and so forth for
	the other external symbols.
	(getopt) [!defined __GNU_LIBRARY]: Use prototype, not old-style
	declaration, since the above renaming now works around collisions.

2004-05-17  Paul Eggert  <>

	Port obstack to the AS/400, where pointers are 16 bytes wide and
	you cannot cast an integer to a valid pointer.  This patch is
	currently waiting to be integrated into glibc; see

	* obstack.h (__PTR_TO_INT, __INT_TO_PTR): Remove.
	All uses of __INT_TO_PTR (PTR_TO_INT ...) replaced by __PTR_ALIGN.
	(__BPTR_ALIGN, __PTR_ALIGN): New macros.
	(struct obstack): temp member is now a union of a pointer and
	an integer, instead of an integer.  All integer uses changed.
	This does not affect the physical layout of struct obstack,
	except on hosts (like the AS/400) where the size or alignment of
	void * is greater than that of ptrdiff_t.
	(obstack_finish) [! (defined __GNUC__ && defined __STDC__ &&
	__STDC__)]: Store temporary in pointer member of union, not
	integer member.
	* obstack.c: Include <stddef.h>, for offsetof.
	(struct fooalign): Remove; it doesn't need a name.
	(union fooround): Change double to long double, and add void *.
	(DEFAULT_ALIGNMENT): Use offsetof to compute.
	not a macro.  Hence the values are always int; so remove all
	casts-to-int in uses.

	    Derek Price  <>

	* alloca.c: Include <alloca.h>, to get our interface.
	* alloca_.h: Use __alloca on AIX, so that we don't have to
	include <alloca.h> first.  Use C89 prototype for alloca; this
	requires including <stddef.h> for size_t.  Use extern "C" if C++.
	Use #elif for simplicity, since we can assume C89 now.
	Don't try to source the system alloca.h since it will not be found

	* regex.c: Likewise.

	getline cleanup.  This changes the getndelim2 API: both order of
	arguments, and meaning of delim2 (now uses EOF, not 0, to indicate
	no delimiter).

	* getline.c: Don't include stddef.h or stdio.h, since our
	interface does that.
	(getline): Always use getdelim, so that we don't have two
	copies of this code.
	* getndelim2.c: Include <limits.h>, <inttypes.h>, <stdint.h>
	if available.
	(PTRDIFF_MAX, SIZE_MAX, SSIZE_MAX): Define if not defined.

	of (size_t) -1 by callers of the getnline family.

2004-05-13  Paul Eggert  <>

	* nanosleep.c (suspended): Change its type from int to
	sig_atomic_t volatile.
	(first_call): Make it private to rpl_nanosleep, and have it
	be zero initially as that's a bit faster.
	(my_usleep): Round up fractional times instead of truncating them,
	as this is the usual meaning for 'sleep'.

	* gettime.c (gettime): Fall back on `time' if `gettimeofday'
	doesn't work.
	* settime.c: Include <unistd.h>, for stime (on Solaris 8, anyway).
	(ENOSYS): Define if not defined.

	Prior to this change, the save_cwd caller required read access to the
	current directory on most systems (ones with the fchdir function).

	* save-cwd.c (save_cwd) [HAVE_FCHDIR]: If opening `.' read-only
	fails, try write-only, and finally, resort to using xgetcwd.

	(textint.digits): Use size_t rather than int.
	(BILLION, LOG10_BILLION): New constants.

	time_zone, month, day, hour, minutes, rel_year, rel_month,
	rel_day, rel_hour, rel_minutes, rel_seconds

	(gmtime, localtime, mktime): Remove decls; not needed with C89.
	(to_hour): First arg is now long int, not int.
	(to_year): Returns long int, not int.

	(get_date): Make pointers 'const' if possible.
	Use more-portable code to detect integer overflow.
	(main) [TEST]: Adjust to above changes.  Test for localtime failure.
	Don't use ctime; it's not reliable if the year has >4 digits.

	* human.c (humblock): Inspect BLOCKSIZE if BLOCK_SIZE isn't set.
	This is for compatibility with BSD.

	* timespec.h (ST_TIME_CMP_NS, ST_TIME_CMP): Define.
	From coreutils' system.h.

	* userspec.c: Don't include "posixver.h".
	(parse_user_spec): Fall back on USER.GROUP parsing, regardless

	that was always nonzero if a string was nonnull.

	when done, if it was allocated with malloc; this plugs a memory
	leak.  Remove casts from void * to pointers, that are no longer
	needed now that we're assuming C89 or better.

	and xcalloc return values.
	(read_filesystem_list) [MOUNTED_GETFSSTAT]:
	Use MNT_NOWAIT, rather than MNT_WAIT.  Otherwise, `df DIR' could
	hang on OSF/1 5.1 for DIR on both local and remote file systems.
	Reported by (and fix confirmed by) Nelson H. F. Beebe.
	(read_filesystem_list) [MOUNTED_VMOUNT]: Detect any
	error from mntctl.
	Use mntctl's return value to drive the entry-processing loop, since
	we can't rely on the value of the vmt_length member in the last
	entry.  On some systems doing so could result in exhausting
	virtual memory.  Based in part on a patch from Mike Jetzer.

2003-07-07  Paul Eggert  <>

	* mktime.c: Fix some boundary cases and remove need for floating point.

	Issue a compile-time diagnostic if time_t is floating point, or if
	two's complement arithmetic is not in effect, or if arithmetic
	right shift does not propagate the sign.  These assumptions were
	all in the original code but they weren't checked.

	(TIME_T_MIDPOINT, verify): New macros.
	(__isleap): Remove; it has integer overflow problems.
	(leapyear): New function, without those problems.
	(ydhms_tm_diff): Remove; splitting into two parts.
	(ydhms_diff): New function, containing the arithmetic part of
	the old ydhms_tm_diff function.  Issue a compile-time
	diagnostic if we are not using C99 integer division.
	Avoid casts when possible.
	(guess_time_tm): New function, containing the checking part of
	the old ydhms_tm_diff function.  Return the new value, rather than
	the difference between it and the old.  Accept a new argument T
	so that *T specifies the old value.  Check for overflow in the result.

	(__mktime_internal): Use a time_t offset, not a long int offset.
	This undoes the 2003-06-04 change, which is no longer needed now
	that we have better overflow checking.
	(localtime_offset): Likewise.

	(__mktime_internal): Avoid harmful overflow on hosts where time_t
	and long are 64-bit but int is only 32-bit.
	(ydhms_diff): Use long int to store year1 and yday1.
	Issue a compile-time diagnostic if long int is not wide enough.

	(__mktime_internal): Use long int to store adjusted year and yday.
	Use plain C rather than preprocessor commands, if that doesn't
	affect efficiency.
	Check for overflow (and try to repair) after each probe
	rather than checking only at the very end.  This avoids some bugs
	(e.g., southern hemisphere, behind GMT, and GMT offset at minimum time
	does not equal GMT offset at maximum time).
	Use integer to check for overflow rather than floating point; this
	is more portable to non-IEEE hosts, and is a tad faster.
	When we detect that we are oscillating between two values,
	don't check whether tm_isdst has the requested value, since
	we already know the answer.  When tm_isdst has the wrong value,
	use a different heuristic to find the right one, based on the
	extreme values actually observed in practice in tz2003a,
	rather than the (overly optimistic) "previous 3 calendar quarters".

	(not_equal_tm, print_tm, check_result): Use "const T" rather than
	"T const" to accommodate glibc style.
	(check_result): Use less-confusing report format.  "long" -> "long int.
	(main): Likewise.
	Don't loop if the iteration overflows time_t.
	Allow a negative step in the iteration.

	`#if !HAVE_DECL_STRTOIMAX', rather than just `#ifndef strtoimax'.
	The latter fails because some systems (at least rs6000-ibm-aix4.3.3.0)

	as POSIX says the result of readlink is implementation-defined
	when ssize_t overflows.

	to be preserved and it's clearer and can be more efficient that way.

	* full-write.h: New file.
	* (libfetish_a_SOURCES): Add full-write.h.
