Description John Curcio 2006-11-29 16:00:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Executing => /bin/echo dsyn | /bin/sed -e 's/[a-z]/\u&/g' does not give proper results ... ie, it only results in a blank carriage return instead of having the imput characters translated to upper case

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sed-4.1.2-4 & sed-4.1.2-5-EL4

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1./bin/echo dsyn | /bin/sed -e 's/[a-z]/\u&/g'
2.
3.

Actual Results:
Executing this command gives me no results ... just a blank carrage return.

Expected Results:
I should have the charcaters "dsyn" translated to upper case.

Additional info:
While not a bug that crashes our system, this does effect our production environment rather significantly and is rather time sensitive.
