Subject: [RFC PATCH 1/2] grep: fallback to interpreter if JIT fails with pcre1
Date: Sun,  9 Dec 2018 15:00:23 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20181209230024.43444-2-carenas@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20181209230024.43444-1-carenas@gmail.com>

JIT support was added to 8.20 but the interface we rely on is only
enabled after 8.32 so try to make the message clearer.

in systems where there are restrictions against creating executable
pages programatically (like OpenBSD, NetBSD, macOS or seLinux) JIT
will fail, resulting in a error message to the user.
