--- Comment #1 from Philip Hazel <ph10@???> ---
pcre2grep reads -f files (and also --include/--exclude files) using fgets()
which explains this behaviour. I am about to cut a Release Candidate for the
next PCRE2 release, and I think that changing this is too big to slip in at
this stage. (The code is inherited from pcregrep and PCRE1, which does not
support literal binary zeroes in patterns.) Once 10.31 is released, I will see
what can be done about this.
