I'm most of the way through an audit of the scripts that
explicitly call #!/bin/bash. I'm mostly looking for
1) any dependency on bash features
2) trivial dependency on bash features (ie using function)
3) dependency on bash features for which there is a posix
4) dependency on features unique and specific to bash
I've run into a couple of strange features of bash for
which I was unable to find documentation in the bash 2.01
manpage. Someone before said that "behavior not explicitly
described in the man page is a bug."
What is the expected behavior of
echo $"Stuff $0 stuff."
I could not find references to either of these syntaxes
in the man pages. I can observe the trivial behavior of the
above examples, but I have no way of finding the entire
behavior without looking at the source... Are these bugs,
or merely features for "Those in the know" ?
