GNU grep 2.5.4 released

Item posted by Tony Abou-Assaleh <taa> on Wed Feb 11 02:22:22 2009.

I'm pleased to announce the release of GNU grep 2.5.4.

GNU grep is a pattern matching program. The grep command searches one or more input files for lines containing a match to a specified pattern. The pattern can be a fixed string or a regular expression. By default, grep prints the matching lines.

This is primarily a bug-fix release. For a complete list of changes please refer to the ChangeLog file.

Thanks to all the people who have been testing, reporting bugs,
contributing code, suggesting enhancements, providing feedback, and answering user questions on the mailing lists <>. Thanks to all the translators. Special thanks to Karl Berry for his guidance and support leading to my first release as a maintainer of grep.

Soon it will also appear on the sources and GNU mirrors which
