Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5935
Possible shell bug
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
After successful (no errors reported) upgrade from RH 6.0
to RH 6.1 -
The following code:
IFS=`$ECHO " \t\n\c"`
foo: /bi: No such file or directory
Please tell me what gives!
(This code fragment is from MicroLite's BackupEdge product).
Shell utils 2.0 follows the standard more closely and does not do the
quoting of \ that this script seems to expect. This is correct
standards behaviour now.
The script should probably be using /usr/bin/printf
