GNU poke 2.3 released

I am not that happy to announce a new release of GNU poke, version 2.3.

This fixes a little bug in diagnostics that broke the 32-bit
testsuite, making 2.2 the shortest lived poke release to date.

See the file NEWS in the distribution tarball for a list of issues fixed in this release.

The tarball poke-2.3.tar.gz is now available at

  GNU poke ( is an interactive,
  extensible editor for binary data.  Not limited to editing
  basic entities such as bits and bytes, it provides a full-
  fledged procedural, interactive programming language designed
  to describe data structures and to operate on them.

Happy poking!
