#20046 closed defect (fixed)

pcre++ rename to pcrexx for consistency and safety

Reported by: blb@… Owned by: gwright@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc: jmroot (Joshua Root), ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt), nerdling (Jeremy Lavergne)
Port: pcre++


Other C++-type ports with ++ in the names have those plus signs replaced by x (eg libsigcxx2, libxmlxx2) to avoid potential issues with a standard regex character. It would appear it has no dependents, once I escaped the pluses in port echo depends:pcre\\+\\+ so I'm guessing it shouldn't be too painful.

Good point. Will do.

There is now a pcrexx port, a copy of pcre++. The pcre++ port is not yet deleted, I'll check to make certain again that there are no dependencies.

Instead of deletion, MacPorts 1.8 now has a replaced_by setting (see ticket #20157) that would be best.

pcre++ files are broken according to rev-upgrade, and since the port no longer exists users are getting into error situations when a rebuild is attempted.

Why was the port was deleted without a replaced_by? The ticket even said that should have been done.
