Description Clay Jackson 1999-10-14 05:23:22 UTC
After successful (no errors reported) upgrade from RH 6.0
to RH 6.1 -

The following code:
    export ECHO
    IFS=`$ECHO " \t\n\c"`
    IFS_NEW=`$ECHO "\t\c"`
    foo: /bi: No such file or directory

Please tell me what gives!

Shell utils 2.0 follows the standard more closely and does not do the
quoting of \ that this script seems to expect. This is correct
standards behaviour now.

The script should probably be using /usr/bin/printf
