Severity: wishlist
Version: 20040623-1

According to SuSv2 (POSIX), egrep and fgrep are obsolete, in favour of
grep -E and grep -F.  busybox only implements egrep and fgrep.

This makes it impossible to use busybox with POSIX (and
SuSv3)-compliant scripts.

The busybox currently in the archive does seem to correctly document these 
commandline options. I'm therefore closing this bug.
