Description Reuben Thomas 2001-09-24 16:19:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
The zgrep script has a line "echo" near the end (about 4 or 5 lines from
the end). This produces a blank line of output for every file that zgrep
looks at. AFAICT, it's entirely spurious.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run zgrep on several files with a pattern that doesn't match in any of

Actual Results:  You get several blank lines output.

Expected Results:  No output.

Additional info:

Emacs, and the extra blank lines confuse Emacs's grep mode, hence normal
