FEDORA-2020-7c32def294 created by robert 2 years ago for Fedora 32

mksh R59

R59 has some major fixes, also introducing breaking changes:

  • Repair out-of-tree builds
  • Work around a glibc on Hurd issue in testsuite
  • OS/2 filesystem mtime granularity is two seconds (as in FAT)
  • Replace while with goto: Coverity was confused
  • Fix invocation of some builtins when external utility absent
  • Improve automatic executable suffix for test builtin
  • Style code, refactor, clean up, optimise
  • Use cached egid in test builtin
  • Make bind builtin output reentry-safe; safety fixes
  • If basename(argv[0]) after leading dash removal begins with an r enable restricted shell flag
  • Fix code example in manpage for how tab completion escapes
  • Match full extglob pattern RHS of [[ string comparison like ksh93
  • Implement which with -a in dot.mkshrc
  • Remove global builtin (use typeset -g)
  • alias, command, whence: Print alias names quoted
  • Implement a new quote-region (Esc+Q) editing command
  • Document all built-in aliases and those aliases and functions shipped in dot.mkshrc; completely overhaul builtin and reserved word documentation, for consistency
  • The manual page now features properly spaced em dashes
  • Document that test x = y doesn’t extglob, only [[ x = y ]] does
