| Great. I have found the report: from 2014-01-04. ^.^
We are gardually cleaning up the reported problems....
| This is really not easy for me, so much download.
I understand. If you have a working NetBSD (7 or more recent)
and you tell me which version, I can probably make you a sh binary
from current sh sources, to work on that system, if you'd like to try it.
Otherwise I'll wait a bit in case there any other reported issues, and
then close this.
| I have seen NetBSD now follows No. 1 regarding context revelation:
| #?1[steffen@essex ]$ alias a=b
| #?0[steffen@essex ]$ alias b='echo c'
| #?0[steffen@essex ]$ a
This much could be from the NetBSD sh, but
| #?0[steffen@essex ]$ command -v a
| alias a='b'
| #?0[steffen@essex ]$ command -V a
| a is aliased to `b'
that isn't, that looks like bash.
What NetBSD sh (from HEAD) does is ...
[jinx]$ command -v a
[jinx]$ command -V a
a is an alias for: b
| May i suggest going one step further for this interactive thing,
| a -> b -> 'echo c'
You can send in another PR (a change request) for that if you
like, and we'll see what people think - but I would not be inclinded
to go that far unless there is a real demand for it (just means a
bunch of extra code for an obscure feature (aliases) that should
probably just be removed anyway).
| Ciao from midsummer Germany,
I was once told that "ausweidersehen" was inappropriate for a
phone call, and I'd guess "ausweiderhoeren" is just as
inappropriate for an e-mail, so "ausweiderbreifen" ???
