Description Matěj Cepl 2007-05-10 17:16:06 EDT
Description of problem:

following discussion on memo-list about dependencies, I have discovered that
/bin/csh (and thus whole tcsh package) is brought to my system just by
/usr/bin/amuFormat.sh which for reasons mysterious to me requires /bin/csh. Just
for kicks I have rewrote the script to /bin/sh script (I hope I haven't left
there some bashism). Totally untested, but I don't think there should be any

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --whatrequires /bin/csh
2. cd /usr/bin;grep '/bin/csh' * 2>/dev/null

POSIX-compliant version of the script

Version rewritten (mostly by Stepan Kasal) to be (at least) POSIX compliant.
