Description roysinnamond 2004-01-21 00:48:05 UTC
If I add something like -

  Score: =-9999
    Xref: :.*:

it does not score any messages. If I just have - 

    Xref: :

all messages are scored -9999.

I have tried ".+" as well with no joy. My scorefile worked OK with Pan 0.14.1

I configured pcre with "--enable-utf8" before compiling and installing Pan and the rest of my scorefile works fine, including some alternations.

One other note: I had a [*] section in my scorefile which broke when I
upgraded Pan, but changing it to [.] fixed it.

The pattern ":.*:" worked OK with pcretest.
Comment 2 roysinnamond 2004-01-21 01:01:47 UTC
I spoke too soon.  The alternations are broken as well.
Comment 3 Christophe Lambin 2004-01-21 20:21:53 UTC
I already fixed this for, but since I was too lazy to create
a bugzilla report, I'll give you credit for this one. :)
