Re: More POSIX Issue 8 changes (msg #2)

and I'm not so sure about the text that follows:

    whereas the ERE ".*?c" matches the first character 'c', the third
    character in the string.  [[ "abc abc" ]]

Possibly it should match "abc", because that is leftmost; just matching
"c" is shortest but I don't see it as being leftmost. I'm not sure how
rigorous they define these terms.
