Greetings all.

Patch #8 to GNU Awk (gawk) 3.1 is now available. Gawk is the GNU project's
version of the AWK programming language.

This is a bug fix release.  The relevant part of the NEWS file is
reproduced below.

A .bz2 file is available for the full distribution to save download time.

The .diff file is a SHELL SCRIPT that should be executed with `sh'. It
sets things up correctly both before and after applying the embedded
context diff.  Note also that if you use the .diff file to upgrade,
you should have the version of makeinfo from Texinfo 4.11 or later in
order to rebuild the *.info files.

Bug reports should be sent to address@hidden

Changes from 3.1.7 to 3.1.8
1. The zero flag no longer applies to %c and %s; apparently the standards
   changed at some point.

2. Updated to latest infrastructure: Autoconf 2.65, Automake 1.11.1,
   libtool 2.2.6b, Bison 2.4.2.

3. Failure to open a socket is no longer a fatal error.

4. dfa.h and dfa.c are now more-or-less in sync with GNU grep, for the first
   time in many years.

5. Gawk no longer includes its own copy of libsigsegv but it will use it if
   installed on the build system. The --disable-libsigsegv configure option
   is now gone.

6. The ' flag (%'d) is now just ignored on systems that can't support it.

7. Lots of bug fixes, see the ChangeLog.
