Description Joe Orton 2004-01-15 15:58:32 EST
Just noticed the -I and -L arguments to xargs aren't supported.  -I/-L
are as per:

http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007904975/utilities/xargs.html

I think -I is equivalent to -i.

If a copy of findutils >= 4.1.7-25 could be rebuild for FC1 and pushed 
to the corresponding update repository, this bug can be closed, I 
think:

* Sun Mar 14 2004 Tim Waugh <twaugh@redhat.com> 4.1.7-25
- Apply Jakub Jelinek's patch for xargs -E/-I/-L options.

Thanks for spotting that it was fixed in rawhide.  I don't think it
warrants an update.
