Description OZAWA Sakuro 2002-06-10 14:40:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020608

Description of problem:
if an executable awk script begins with
line, find-requires condisders BEGIN as its interpreter name.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Contain an awk script that begins its first line with BEGIN block.
2. chmod +x it.
3. Package it.

Actual Results:  find-requires detects the word BEGIN as an interpreter name.

Expected Results: BEGIN should not be detected because the script does not
begins with #! lne, it begins with BEGIN line though.

Additional info:

Of cource such script should not be chmod +x'ed, but find-requires should also
avoid considerering such files as executables, because these files does not
begins with #!.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-06-12 11:22:15 EDT
	chmod -x
to prevent find-requires/find-provides from
attempting to extract dependencies.
