Thanks again for the report.
That bug is now fixed via this patch:

2.6.3 --include doesn't work as 2.5.4 does.

For instance:

$ mkdir foo
$ cd foo
$ echo 1 > 1
$ echo 2 > 2
$ grep2.5.4 -P --include=[12] "\d" *
$ grep2.6.3 -P --include=[12] "\d" *

The --include option seems completely broken to me. I am using v2.6.3 on Arch Linux.


# Normal recursive grep works ok...
[alan@perry] ~/test
$ grep -Rl test *

# test.cpp in the current directory isn't returned
[alan@perry] ~/test
$ grep -Rl --include=\.cpp test

# I only asked for .h files, why is a .cpp file being returned?
[alan@perry] ~/test
$ grep -Rl --include=\.h test

# Non-recursive, nothing gets returned.
[alan@perry] ~/test
$ grep -l --include=\.cpp test

# Non-recursive, wrong file type returned.
[alan@perry] ~/test
$ grep -l --include=\.h test

I've tried using various combinations of backslashes, single and double quotes on the --include parameter, but to no avail.
