Your code and comments suggest that you can specify the port to configure by setting PGPORT, but that is not the case. test == is not portable (bashism). Error messages should have consistent capitalization. Indentation in configure is two spaces. > As the comment states, it doesn't catch things like --with-pgport=1a in > configure, but the compile error you get with that isn't too hard to > figure out, so I think it's OK. Passing a non-integer as argument will produce an error message like (depending on shell) ./configure: line 3107: test: 11a: integer expression expected but will not actually abort configure. It would work more robustly if you did something like this elif test "$default_port" -ge "1" -a "$default_port" -le "65535"; then : else AC_MSG_ERROR([port must be between 1 and 65535]) fi but that still leaks the shell's error message. There is also the risk of someone specifying a number with a leading zero, which C would interpret as octal but the shell would not. To make this really robust, you might need to do pattern matching on the value. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
