Subject: Wrong pattern for hex-patterns in sub readMagicLine()
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 337b
There seems a bug in the octal/hex conversion in readMagicLine(): $testval =~ s/\\([x0-7][0-7]?[0-7]?)/chr(oct($1))/eg; This matches only against true octal patterns. With a magic file containing a pattern like: 0 string \x89PNG image/png This pattern won't match. Attached is a small patch, fixing this problem.
