Description Chris Van Hoof 2003-05-23 17:35:31 EDT
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

Comment 2 Chris Van Hoof 2003-05-29 18:21:29 EDT
When using the built-in the -f flag spawns errors.  When using /usr/bin/time the
-f flag operates as expected.
