Description Jens Petersen 2004-08-11 22:46:01 EDT
Description of problem:
htt, the wrapper to htt_server, just seems to pass on all option
args to htt_server and for unknown option the output loops forever.

Package version:

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. htt -h
2. htt --help
Actual results:
htt loops forever with:

htt_server [-d] [-lcbasiclocale localename]
           [-ifpath_name ifpath] [-if ifname]
           [-port portnumber] [-hostname hostname]
           [-conversionkeys keys]

htt_server [-d] [-lcbasiclocale localename]
           [-ifpath_name ifpath] [-if ifname]
           [-port portnumber] [-hostname hostname]
           [-conversionkeys keys]


Expected results:
The output to only appear once.

Additional info:
Presumably htt_server returns an error for a bad option, causing
htt to retry again and again.
Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2004-08-17 00:45:25 EDT
should be fixed in -70.svn1856. please confirm it.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-08-17 03:39:45 EDT

It would be nice if htt printed out a error message too for
unknown options like htt_server does.
Comment 3 Lawrence Lim 2004-08-27 00:31:48 EDT
In the current rawhide 12.0.1-1, the command htt --help only display a
single line 'Usage: htt [-retryonerror NUM]' unlike 

htt_server [-d] [-lcbasiclocale localename]
           [-ifpath_name ifpath] [-if ifname]
           [-port portnumber] [-hostname hostname]
           [-conversionkeys keys]

Is this the correct behaviour?
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2004-08-27 01:31:45 EDT
Yes, right. but according to jens's suggestion, it will be changed.
Comment 5 Lawrence Lim 2004-08-29 23:58:15 EDT
Confirmed that the loop problem has been resolved in rawhide

Filed bug 131216 in regards to the error message.
