/usr/bin/rftp is messed up, and has been for several releases.  Won't even
start up; just try typing rftp.  Line 312 missing quote.  My version works
better with an extra error detection number, as in following diff:

$ diff /usr/bin/rftp myrftp
116c116
<       } -re "(257|550.*exists).*ftp>.*"
---
>       } -re "(257|553|550.*exists).*ftp>.*"
312c312
<       send_user "usage: rftp [host]
---
>       send_user "usage: rftp [host]"

[WHY IS THERE NO EXPECT COMPONENT?!; I LIED ABOUT TCL/TK IN FORM]

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-17 18:15:59 UTC
Thanks for the patch.

Meanwhile, there's no expect component because bugzilla tracks source
rather than binary componenets, and expect is a binary sub-package
generated from the tcltk src.rpm. More than a little confusing to
anybody who isn't intimately familiar with the Red hat distribution,
but that can't be helped currently ...
