Wow…  They are amazingly clueless.  What part of the mandate, though shall not claim out of memory until the last byte of my 4 TB drive is allocated did you not understand?  Could someone file a tcl bug and say they want a 100 MB regexp please, the 1980s are over.  I was going to say 10 MB, and realized that is what I would have said in 1994, then realized it isn't 1994 anymore either.

I filed:


Thanks for finding the original tcl bug and tracking this down and letting us know it was a regression from 8.5 to 8.6.

:-(  closed.

I've amended the Tcl pointer with the bug pointer:

2013-08-30  Mike Stump  <mikestump@comcast.net>

        * doc/install.texi (Prerequisites): Note regression in Tcl 8.6 with RE patterns.

I usually don't like enshrining bug reports into the documentation, but, for this bug, I'll make an exception.  Now, I'm hoping they will actually fix this in tcl, so that we don't have to do anything special in the test suite.  Wake me in a year and let's see if they fixed it.
