grep: support NUL chars in search strings for -F
Search patterns in a file specified with -f can contain NUL characters. The current code ignores all characters on a line after a NUL. Pass the actual length of the line all the way from the pattern file to fixmatch() and use it for case-sensitive fixed string matching. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
