grep: add support for PCRE v2 Add support for v2 of the PCRE API. This is a new major version of PCRE that came out in early 2015[1]. The regular expression syntax is the same, but while the API is similar, pretty much every function is either renamed or takes different arguments. Thus using it via entirely new functions makes sense, as opposed to trying to e.g. have one compile_pcre_pattern() that would call either PCRE v1 or v2 functions. Git can now be compiled with either USE_LIBPCRE1=YesPlease or USE_LIBPCRE2=YesPlease, with USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease currently being a synonym for the former. Providing both is a compile-time error. With earlier patches to enable JIT for PCRE v1 the performance of the release versions of both libraries is almost exactly the same, with PCRE v2 being around 1% slower. However after I reported this to the pcre-dev mailing list[2] I got a lot of help with the API use from Zoltán Herczeg, he subsequently optimized some of the JIT functionality in v2 of the library. Running the p7820-grep-engines.sh performance test against the latest Subversion trunk of both, with both them and git compiled as -O3, and the test run against linux.git, gives the following results.

grep: add support for PCRE v2 Add support for v2 of the PCRE API. This is a new major version of PCRE that came out in early 2015[1]. The regular expression syntax is the same, but while the API is similar, pretty much every function is either renamed or takes different arguments. Thus using it via entirely new functions makes sense, as opposed to trying to e.g. have one compile_pcre_pattern() that would call either PCRE v1 or v2 functions. Git can now be compiled with either USE_LIBPCRE1=YesPlease or USE_LIBPCRE2=YesPlease, with USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease currently being a synonym for the former. Providing both is a compile-time error. With earlier patches to enable JIT for PCRE v1 the performance of the release versions of both libraries is almost exactly the same, with PCRE v2 being around 1% slower. However after I reported this to the pcre-dev mailing list[2] I got a lot of help with the API use from Zoltán Herczeg, he subsequently optimized some of the JIT functionality in v2 of the library. Running the p7820-grep-engines.sh performance test against the latest Subversion trunk of both, with both them and git compiled as -O3, and the test run against linux.git, gives the following results.

#
Portable alloca for Git In the next patch we'll have to use alloca() for performance reasons, but since alloca is non-standardized and is not portable, let's have a trick with compatibility wrappers: 1. at configure time, determine, do we have working alloca() through alloca.h, and define #define HAVE_ALLOCA_H if yes. 2. in code #ifdef HAVE_ALLOCA_H # include <alloca.h> # define xalloca(size) (alloca(size)) # define xalloca_free(p) do {} while(0) #else # define xalloca(size) (xmalloc(size)) # define xalloca_free(p) (free(p)) #endif and use it like func() { p = xalloca(size); ... xalloca_free(p); } This way, for systems, where alloca is available, we'll have optimal on-stack allocations with fast executions. On the other hand, on systems, where alloca is not available, this gracefully fallbacks to xmalloc/free. Both autoconf and config.mak.uname configurations were updated. For autoconf, we are not bothering considering cases, when no alloca.h is available, but alloca() works some other way - its simply alloca.h is available and works or not, everything else is deep legacy. For config.mak.uname, I've tried to make my almost-sure guess for where alloca() is available, but since I only have access to Linux it is the only change I can be sure about myself, with relevant to other changed systems people Cc'ed. NOTE SunOS and Windows had explicit -DHAVE_ALLOCA_H in their configurations. I've changed that to now-common HAVE_ALLOCA_H=YesPlease which should be correct.

grep: add support for PCRE v2 Add support for v2 of the PCRE API. This is a new major version of PCRE that came out in early 2015[1]. The regular expression syntax is the same, but while the API is similar, pretty much every function is either renamed or takes different arguments. Thus using it via entirely new functions makes sense, as opposed to trying to e.g. have one compile_pcre_pattern() that would call either PCRE v1 or v2 functions. Git can now be compiled with either USE_LIBPCRE1=YesPlease or USE_LIBPCRE2=YesPlease, with USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease currently being a synonym for the former. Providing both is a compile-time error. With earlier patches to enable JIT for PCRE v1 the performance of the release versions of both libraries is almost exactly the same, with PCRE v2 being around 1% slower. However after I reported this to the pcre-dev mailing list[2] I got a lot of help with the API use from Zoltán Herczeg, he subsequently optimized some of the JIT functionality in v2 of the library. Running the p7820-grep-engines.sh performance test against the latest Subversion trunk of both, with both them and git compiled as -O3, and the test run against linux.git, gives the following results. Just the /perl/ tests shown: $ GIT_PERF_REPEAT_COUNT=30 GIT_PERF_LARGE_REPO=~/g/linux GIT_PERF_MAKE_COMMAND='grep -q LIBPCRE2 Makefile && make -j8 USE_LIBPCRE2=YesPlease CC=~/perl5/installed/bin/gcc NO_R_TO_GCC_LINKER=YesPlease CFLAGS=-O3 LIBPCREDIR=/home/avar/g/pcre2/inst LDFLAGS=-Wl,-rpath,/home/avar/g/pcre2/inst/lib || make -j8 USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease CC=~/perl5/installed/bin/gcc NO_R_TO_GCC_LINKER=YesPlease CFLAGS=-O3 LIBPCREDIR=/home/avar/g/pcre/inst LDFLAGS=-Wl,-rpath,/home/avar/g/pcre/inst/lib' ./run HEAD~5 HEAD~ HEAD p7820-grep-engines.sh [...] Test HEAD~5 HEAD~ HEAD ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7820.3: perl grep 'how.to' 0.31(1.10+0.48) 0.21(0.35+0.56) -32.3% 0.21(0.34+0.55) -32.3% 7820.7: perl grep '^how to' 0.56(2.70+0.40) 0.24(0.64+0.52) -57.1% 0.20(0.28+0.60) -64.3% 7820.11: perl grep '[how] to' 0.56(2.66+0.38) 0.29(0.95+0.45) -48.2% 0.23(0.45+0.54) -58.9% 7820.15: perl grep '(e.t[^ ]*|v.ry) rare' 1.02(5.77+0.42) 0.31(1.02+0.54) -69.6% 0.23(0.50+0.54) -77.5% 7820.19: perl grep 'm(ú|u)lt.b(æ|y)te' 0.38(1.57+0.42) 0.27(0.85+0.46) -28.9% 0.21(0.33+0.57) -44.7% See commit ("perf: add a comparison test of grep regex engines", 2017-04-19) for details on the machine the above test run was executed on. Here HEAD~2 is git with PCRE v1 without JIT, HEAD~ is PCRE v1 with JIT, and HEAD is PCRE v2 (also with JIT). See previous commits of mine mentioning p7820-grep-engines.sh for more details on the test setup. For ease of readability, a different run just of HEAD~ (PCRE v1 with JIT v.s. PCRE v2), again with just the /perl/ tests shown: [...] Test HEAD~ HEAD ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7820.3: perl grep 'how.to' 0.21(0.42+0.52) 0.21(0.31+0.58) +0.0% 7820.7: perl grep '^how to' 0.25(0.65+0.50) 0.20(0.31+0.57) -20.0% 7820.11: perl grep '[how] to' 0.30(0.90+0.50) 0.23(0.46+0.53) -23.3% 7820.15: perl grep '(e.t[^ ]*|v.ry) rare' 0.30(1.19+0.38) 0.23(0.51+0.51) -23.3% 7820.19: perl grep 'm(ú|u)lt.b(æ|y)te' 0.27(0.84+0.48) 0.21(0.34+0.57) -22.2% I.e. the two are either neck-to-neck, but PCRE v2 usually pulls ahead, when it does it's around 20% faster. A brief note on thread safety: As noted in pcre2api(3) & pcre2jit(3) the compiled pattern can be shared between threads, but not some of the JIT context, however the grep threading support does all pattern & JIT compilation in separate threads, so this code doesn't need to concern itself with thread safety. See commit 63e7e9d8b6 ("git-grep: Learn PCRE", 2011-05-09) for the initial addition of PCRE v1. This change follows some of the same patterns it did (and which were discussed on list at the time), e.g. mocking up types with typedef instead of ifdef-ing them out when USE_LIBPCRE2 isn't defined. This adds some trivial memory use to the program, but makes the code look nicer. 1. https://lists.exim.org/lurker/message/20150105.162835.0666407a.en.html 2. https://lists.exim.org/lurker/thread/20170419.172322.833ee099.en.html Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
