Re: proposed /etc/rc.d/staticroute change to allow variables

Since ! has a well defined meaning in ifconfig.if, maybe use a

'!' already means 'eval this line' in ifconfig.if. It was
my suggestion to have it mean more or less the same thing in
I see now that /etc/rc.d/network eval's each '!' line from
ifconfig.if in a separate subshell, whereas the proposal for
/etc/rc.d/staticroute is to eval all linesin the same subshell (so
that variables set in one line may affect commands in a subsequent
line). I think it would make more sense for both rc.d/network and
rc.d/staticroute to perform all the evals in the same subshell.
