Re: [NNTPCACHE] Problems compiling nntpcache 3.0.1 on Solaris 8



Julian-

GNU and other makes running under Solaris 8 uses Bourne Shell, /bin/sh. Bourne
Shell does not support a -e flag on the test command.  Under some Linux, make
use Korn Shell which does support the -e flag, but this is not Posix compliant.
To make NNTPCache code more portable, I suggest using the -f flag on the
test command.

Yes. The built in sh solaris test(1) -e is buggy! You might want to try
replacing this with -f

Cheers,
