  • Fix manpage for ditroff on Schillix
  • Use sed 1q instead of unportable head(1)
  • Implement underrun debugging tool for area-based memory allocator
  • Fix history underrun when first interactive command is entered
  • Do not misinterpret “${0/}” as “${0//”, fixes segfault
  • Fix display problems with special parameters
  • Catch attempt to trim $ and $@ with ?, fixes segfault (Todd Miller did this in 2004 for ${x[]} already, so just sync)

  • Flush even syntax-failing or interrupted commands to history
  • Fix invalid memory access for “'\0'” in arithmetics
