Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 99253
%define interpreted inside comment lines
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem:
%define directives in RPM spec file comment lines are interpreted.
This contradicts the documentation, which specifies that
"Any text following the comment character will be ignored by RPM."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
%define foo xxx
#%define foo yyy
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create sample spec file
2. Run rpm -bp
The documentation is wrong.
Aah, so it is a "feature".
