Time ignores --format
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to access some of the more advanced features of time - using the --format
or -f option described in the man page. Also tried the TIME env variable.
None work time is evaluating the -f as a bash command.
RPM package is - time-1.7-14
Are you maybe using the bash builtin version of time or the user app

When using the built-in the -f flag spawns errors. When using /usr/bin/time the
-f flag operates as expected.
