Description Michael Fischer 2003-11-09 16:20:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007

Description of problem:
at generates a bad script when SHELL=/bin/tcsh.  It puts the correct
heading line #!/bin/tcsh into the script, but it puts /bin/sh-style
environment-setting commands into the script, e.g.
NNTPSERVER=news.yale.edu; export NNTPSERVER
This script of course fails when run.

If instead at is called with SHELL=/bin/sh, then it generates a
correct /bin/sh-style script which works correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
at-3.1.8-46.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set environment variable SHELL=/bin/tcsh
2.at now
3.at> whoami
4. ^D
5. Read email response.

    

Actual Results:  Email showing attemt to execute environment, e.g.,
NNTPSERVER=news.yale.edu: Command not found.
export: Permission denied.
...


Expected Results:  Email containing "mike' (the result of the "whoami"
command).

Additional info:

To see the script generated, try at 'now+1 hour'; then look in
/var/spool/at and examine the generated script.
