Description MD Squiers 2002-03-28 21:46:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020308

Description of problem:
In ash, the ":" is the null command.  In Red Hat 7.2, this behavior was correct.
 In Skipjack, enter ":" from the ash command line produces an error, as if the
command ":" was attempted.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:


# :
:: not found

":" should do nothing.

In Red Hat 7.2:
$ :
$ echo $?

Additional info:
Comment 1 Derek Tattersall 2002-04-12 20:54:25 EDT

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-15 16:48:06 EDT
Reverted to the one from 7.2.
