# make
if [ -n "" ]; then \
  for r in ; do \
    echo $r; \
  done; \
/tmp/bash: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
/tmp/bash: -c: line 1: `if [ -n "" ]; then  for r in ; do  echo $r;  done;  fi'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Bash in RedHat 7.1 and the current public beta are ok.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-02 10:42:05 UTC
This is because  
for i in ; do something; done  
isn't part of older standards. 
Support for this construct has been added in 2.05. 

Comment 3 hjl 2002-04-02 16:49:00 UTC
It is a regression from RedHat 7.1. The build stops working
after upgrading to RedHat 7.2.
