bug with $? after .

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

According to POSIX, the status of . shall be 0 if no command was executed during
the sourced script.  Therefore, this is a bug:

$ dash -c 'false; . /dev/null; echo $?'

and should be fixed to output 0.
