Description Eric Andresen 2004-04-14 18:07:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040124

Description of problem:
The current version of the file package is 4.02-2, which has a bug
that makes the -k switch non functioning. The upstream package version
has a fix for this.

Using that updated package version, there is one minor bug due to a
literal \n being translated to \012 in the output.

I will attach the new .spec file, as well as the .patch for the
newline translation problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. file -k somefile
2. ???
3. Profit.

Actual Results:  First match listed.

Expected Results:  All matches listed.
