Although there are reasons to do this (a 'local' function containing 'command local' would not work, and export, readonly and ksh93's typeset are special as well), consensus seems to be for local to be a regular builtin. posh's local was special for a short time, but this was then reverted. Nevertheless, it is very nice to have IFS=: read ... working again. -- Jilles Tjoelker -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe dash" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
