Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7869
/usr/bin/rftp doesn't run at all
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
/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
< } -re "(257|550.*exists).*ftp>.*"
> } -re "(257|553|550.*exists).*ftp>.*"
< send_user "usage: rftp [host]
> send_user "usage: rftp [host]"
[WHY IS THERE NO EXPECT COMPONENT?!; I LIED ABOUT TCL/TK IN FORM]
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 ...

Fixed in tcltk-8.2.3-36. Thanks for the patch.
