Summary: The GNU Bourne-Again Shell
Bash is an sh-compatible command interpreter that executes commands
read from standard input or from a file.  Bash incorporates useful
features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh).  Bash is intended to
be a conformant implementation of the IEEE Posix Shell and Tools
specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).






* Tue Jan 16 2024 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add upstream patches
    * bash52-022
      It's possible for readline to try to zero out a line that's not
      null-terminated, leading to a memory fault.
    * bash52-023
      Running `local -' multiple times in a shell function would
      overwrite the original saved set of options.
    * bash52-024
      Fix bug where associative array compound assignment would not
      expand tildes in values.
    * bash52-025
      Make sure a subshell checks for and handles any terminating
      signals before exiting (which might have arrived after the
      command completed) so the parent and any EXIT trap will see
      the correct value for $?.
* Wed Nov 15 2023 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Declare token YYEOF to be able to support older bison versions
    as well
* Wed Nov 15 2023 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Be sure to have a usable bison installed at build time
* Tue Nov 14 2023 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add upstream patches
    * bash52-021
      There is an off-by-one error that causes command substitutions to fail when
      they appear in a word expansion inside a here-document.
    * bash52-020
      The parser did not allow `time' to appear as the first reserved word in a
      command substitution.
    * bash52-019
      There are some cases where the shell reaped a background (asynchronous) job
      and would incorrectly try to set the terminal's process group back to the
      shell's. In these cases it never set the terminal process group to that
      jobs's process group initially, so resetting it is incorrect.
    * bash52-018
      There are two problems with returning tokens to yyparse() when the shell
      encounters a syntax error or when it reads EOF.
      When reading a WORD token, the parser has to return the correct value to
      yyparse. Previous versions returned a value < 0, which the bash parser
      translated into YYERRCODE for bison, and in newer versions of bison, the
      appropriate reset actions didn't happen. We should return YYUNDEF, which
      bison uses for `invalid token'. Since we can return a token < 0 for both
      invalid tokens and EOF, the bash tokenizer needs to differentiate between
      those two cases.
    * bash52-017
      In certain cases, using the `.' builtin in a subshell would optimize away
      the rest of the commands in the subshell.
    * bash52-016
      If an expression in an arithmetic for loop expands to NULL, the shell
      would crash.
  - Correct offsets of patches
    * bash-4.3-sigrestart.patch
    * bash-5.2.dif
* Tue Dec 27 2022 Ludwig Nussel <>
  - Replace transitional %usrmerged macro with regular version check (boo#1206798)
* Wed Dec 14 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add upstream patches
    * bash52-013
      Bash can leak memory when referencing a non-existent associative
      array element.
    * bash52-014
      Bash defers processing additional terminating signals when running
      the EXIT trap while exiting due to a terminating signal.  This
      patch allows the new terminating signal to kill the shell immediately.
    * bash52-015
      There are several cases where bash is too aggressive when optimizing
      out forks in subshells. For example, `eval' and traps should never
      be optimized.
* Mon Nov 28 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add upstream patches
    * bash52-010
      Bash-5.2 checks the first 128 characters of an executable file that execve()
      refuses to execute to see whether it's a binary file before trying to
      execute it as a shell script. This defeats some previously-supported use
      cases like "self-executing" jar files or "self-uncompressing" scripts.
    * bash52-011
      Using timeouts and readline editing with the `read' builtin (read -e -t) can
      leave the readline timeout enabled, potentially resulting in an erroneous
      timeout on the next call.
    * bash52-012
      When running in bash compatibility mode, nested command substitutions can
      leave the `extglob' option enabled.
* Wed Nov 09 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add upstream patches
    * bash52-003
      Command substitutions need to preserve newlines instead of replacing them
      with semicolons, especially in the presence of multiple here-documents.
    * bash52-004
      Bash needs to keep better track of nested brace expansions to avoid problems
      with quoting and POSIX semantics.
    * bash52-005
      Null pattern substitution replacement strings can cause a crash.
    * bash52-006
      In interactive shells, interrupting the shell while entering a command
      substitution can inhibit alias expansion.
    * bash52-007
      This patch fixes several problems with alias expansion inside command
      substitutions when in POSIX mode.
    * bash52-008
      Array subscript expansion can inappropriately quote brackets if the expression
      contains < or >.
    * bash52-009
      Bash arithmetic expansion should allow `@' and `*' to be used as associative
      array keys in expressions.
* Wed Nov 02 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
    correct (boo#1204567)
* Thu Oct 20 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Explicit require versioned libreadline8 as we face new ABI
    functions used by the bash (boo#1204336)
* Wed Oct 12 2022 Andreas Schwab <>
  - Don't strip binaries
  - Work around a signal mask issue with qemu linux-user emulation
* Wed Oct 12 2022 Andreas Schwab <>
  - Remove backup of patched tests
* Thu Oct 06 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>

    * bash52-001
      Expanding unset arrays in an arithmetic context can cause a
      segmentation fault.
    * bash52-002
      Starting bash with an invalid locale specification for
      LC_ALL/LANG/LC_CTYPE can cause the shell to crash.
  - Do not run checks in parallel as it eats memory, a lot of memory
  - Disable alternate array implementation as it eats a lot of memory
* Tue Sep 27 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to final bash 5.2
    a. When replacing a history entry, make sure the existing entry has a non-NULL
      timestamp before copying it; it may have been added by the application, not
      the history library.
* Tue Sep 27 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Modernize run-tests

  - Update to bash 5.2 rc4
    Pos. aa is now enabled by default.
    m. Readline now checks for changes to locale settings (LC_ALL/LC_CTYPE/LANG)
      each time it is called, and modifies the appropriate locale-specific display
  - Port patches
    * bash-2.03-manual.patch
    * bash-5.2.dif
* Wed Jul 27 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.2 rc2
    gg. Since there is no `declare -' equivalent of `local -', make sure to use
      `local -' in the output of `local -p'.
* Wed Jun 22 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.2 rc1
    dd. In posix mode, the `printf' builtin checks for the `L' length modifier and
      uses long double for floating point conversion specifiers if it's present,
      double otherwise.
    ee. The `globbing' completion code now takes the `globstar' option into account.
    ff. `suspend -f' now forces the shell to suspend even if job control is not
      currently enabled.
  - Port patches
    * bash-2.03-manual.patch
    * bash-3.2-printf.patch
    * bash-4.1-bash.bashrc.dif
    * bash-5.2.dif
* Thu Apr 28 2022 Dirk Müller <>
  - use https:// for source urls
* Thu Apr 28 2022 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.2 beta
    a. The bash malloc returns memory that is aligned on 16-byte boundaries.
    b. There is a new internal timer framework used for read builtin timeouts.
    c. Rewrote the command substitution parsing code to call the parser recursively
      and rebuild the command string from the parsed command. This allows better
      syntax checking and catches errors much earlier.
    d. The `ulimit' builtin now treats an operand remaining after all of the options
      and arguments are parsed as an argument to the last command specified by
      an option. This is for POSIX compatibility.
    e. Here-document parsing now handles $'...' and $"..." quoting when reading the
      here-document body.
    f. The `shell-expand-line' and `history-and-alias-expand-line' bindable readline
      commands now understand $'...' and $"..." quoting.
    g. There is a new `spell-correct-word' bindable readline command to perform
      spelling correction on the current word.
    h. The `unset' builtin now attempts to treat arguments as array subscripts
      without parsing or expanding the subscript, even when `assoc_expand_once'
      is not set.
    i. There is a default value for $BASH_LOADABLES_PATH in config-top.h.
    j. Associative array assignment and certain instances of referencing (e.g.,
      `test -v' now allow `@' and `*' to be used as keys.
    k. Bash attempts to expand indexed array subscripts only once when executing
      shell constructs and word expansions.
    l. The `unset' builtin allows a subscript of `@' or `*' to unset a key with
      that value for associative arrays instead of unsetting the entire array
      (which you can still do with `unset arrayname'). For indexed arrays, it
      removes all elements of the array without unsetting it (like `A=()').
    m. Additional builtins (printf/test/read/wait) do a better job of not
      parsing array subscripts if array_expand_once is set.
    n. New READLINE_ARGUMENT variable set to numeric argument for readline commands
      defined using `bind -x'.
    o. The new `varredir_close' shell option causes bash to automatically close
      file descriptors opened with {var}<fn and other styles of varassign
      redirection unless they're arguments to the `exec' builtin.
    p. The `$0' special parameter is now set to the name of the script when running
      any (non-interactive) startup files such as $BASH_ENV.
    q. The `enable' builtin tries to load a loadable builtin using the default
      search path if `enable name' (without any options) attempts to enable a
      non-existent builtin.
    r. The `printf' builtin has a new format specifier: %Q. This acts like %q but
      applies any specified precision to the original unquoted argument, then
      quotes and outputs the result.
    s. The new `noexpand_translations' option controls whether or not the translated
      output of $"..." is single-quoted.
    t. There is a new parameter transformation operator: @k. This is like @K, but
      expands the result to separate words after word splitting.
    u. There is an alternate array implementation, selectable at `configure' time,
      that optimizes access speed over memory use (use the new configure
    - -enable-alt-array-implementation option).
    v. If an [N]<&WORD- or [N]>&WORD- redirection has WORD expand to the empty
      string, treat the redirection as [N]<&- or [N]>&- and close file descriptor
      N (default 0).
    w. Invalid parameter transformation operators are now invalid word expansions,
      and so cause fatal errors in non-interactive shells.
    x. New shell option: patsub_replacement. When enabled, a `&' in the replacement
      string of the pattern substitution expansion is replaced by the portion of
      the string that matched the pattern. Backslash will escape the `&' and
      insert a literal `&'.
    y. `command -p' no longer looks in the hash table for the specified command.
    z. The new `--enable-translatable-strings' option to `configure' allows $"..."
      support to be compiled in or out.
    aa. The new `globskipdots' shell option forces pathname expansion never to
      return `.' or `..' unless explicitly matched.
    bb. Array references using `@' and `*' that are the value of nameref variables
      (declare -n ref='v[@]' ; echo $ref) no longer cause the shell to exit if
      set -u is enabled and the array (v) is unset.
    cc. There is a new bindable readline command name:

      Bash may produce corrupted input if a multibyte character spans a 512-byte
      boundary while reading the output of a command substitution.
    * Add official patch bash51-015
      There are some characters (e.g., cyrillic) that can't be displayed using
      certain single-byte encodings (e.g., cp1251) because the negative signed
      int is interpreted as EOF and not displayed.
    * Add official patch bash51-016
      Multiple `!' tokens should toggle negation of an expression in a [[
      conditional command, instead of simply negating the expression.

  - Update bash 5.1 to patch level 12
    * Add official patch bash51-009
      The bash malloc implementation of malloc_usable_size() does not follow the

      memory bounds checking.
    * Add official patch bash51-010
      If `wait -n' is interrupted by a trapped signal other than SIGINT, it does
      not completely clean up state, and that can prevent subsequent calls to
      `wait -n' from working correctly.
    * Add official patch bash51-011
      When reading a compound assignment, and running it through the parser to
      split it into words, we need to save and restore any alias we're currently

      There is a possible race condition that arises when a child process receives
      a signal trapped by the parent before it can reset the signal dispositions.
      The child process is not supposed to trap the signal in this circumstance.

    There is a missing dependency on a constructed file, which can cause highly
    parellel builds to fail.
  - Add official patch bash51-002
    If there are no jobs, and the `-n' and `-p' options are both supplied to
    `wait', bash can assign a value to the variable name specified with `-p'
    instead of leaving it unset.
  - Add official patch bash51-003
    Bash does not put a command substitution process that is started to perform an
    expansion in a child process into the right process group where it can receive
    keyboard-generated signals.
  - Add official patch bash51-004
    If a key-value compound array assignment to an associative array is supplied
    as an assignment statement argument to the `declare' command that declares the
    array, the assignment doesn't perform the correct word expansions.
    This patch makes key-value assignment and subscript assignment perform the
    same expansions when they're supplied as an argument to `declare'.
